Democrats Ask Why Hasn’t KY Clerk Been Fired In Gay Marriage License Case? SAME REASON YOUR OBAMA HASN’T BEEN FIRED.

September 2, 2015

Democrats and liberals – otherwise known as “pathological rabid hypocrites” – are demanding to know why the Kentucky clerk who is refusing to sign gay marriage certificates hasn’t been fired.

The same damn reason your false messiah hasn’t been fired, you moral cockroaches.

Democrats say “If Kim Davis doesn’t want to certify same-sex marriages, she should quit her job.”  They say the law is on their side.

So where the hell were you moral roach hypocrites when the “law” very clearly stated that marriage was between ONE man AND ONE woman and Barack Hussein Obama refused to honor a law that had been passed by both the House and the Senate and signed INTO LAW by President William Jefferson Clinton???

We see that the “ACLU wants Kentucky clerk in contempt of court over denying gay marriage licenses.”  So I suppose what that means is that it is an act of “contempt” not to follow the law.

So where WERE you holier-than-thou Pharisees when you were cheering wildly as Barack Hussein Obama should have been held in contempt, impeached and forcibly removed from office from blatantly violating the law of the land that you are now so upset is being violated???

We can go back more than four years to see Obama:

Obama administration will no longer defend DOMA

You had the law of the land, you had somebody refusing to follow the law of the land.

Obama issued one of his Führer’s Directives and the same people who are now purple apoplectic with rage cheered wildly.  Because you lawless Nazi thug-punks were drunk with the power of being able to ignore any damn law you didn’t like and flat-out making your OWN laws when the actual laws of the land demanded or imposed something you didn’t like.

Politico described Obama’s policy.  Here it is:

Obama’s policy strategy: Ignore laws

And of course, Obama has played this lawless game over and over again.  For example, our Roach-in-Chief publicly stated at least TWENTY-TWO TIMES that he would be a lawless, unconstitutional, anti-democratic fascist thug EMPEROR to impose “laws” by executive order on illegal immigration.  And then did the very thing he said he legally was banned from doing.

I think of the sanctuary cities whose very intent is to fly in the FACE of federal laws on the books.  I think of Obama demonically refusing to do a damn thing to protect the border states against illegal immigration, and then suing them when they tried to enact their own laws arguing that laws pertaining to immigration status or borders are solely under federal jurisdiction.  Unless, of course, that is, unless Democrats do the opposite version of the same damn thing Obama went on the warpath to prevent Republican states from doing.

But of course it’s different when Obama flagrantly ignores the law, dontchaknow.  Being a lawless political fascist thug is a GOOD thing when Obama does it.

So fine.  In Kentucky a clerk has the SAME DAMN STRATEGY and all of a sudden it is this horrible thing and she needs to lose her job and be held in contempt and have her fingernails torn from her clutching hands while she screams in pain.

And all she’s doing is following YOUR policy strategy, Democrat.

In the Los Angeles Times editorial, the Times stated the following that I at least appreciate for the sake of candid acknowledgment:

Where ‘God’s authority’ ends

For Democrats, there is no real point where God’s authority should BEGIN, and it should as sure as they will burn in hell for eternity be ENDED immediately and at every point where it in any way, shape or form intersects with their wickedness.

The Times admits that:

Historically this country has been generous toward individuals whose religious beliefs make it difficult for them to comply with the law.

And then immediately counters with a “but”:

But the accommodation must stop at the point at which a public official refuses to discharge her legal duty by invoking “God’s authority,” as Davis has done.

The God of the Bible’s authority should END, they tell us; what should NOT end and what should not even be interfered with is the authority of THEIR god, the omnipotent human state, as it grows more and more and more powerful.

Unless, of course, someone other than one of THEIR high-priests-of-Satan are at the helm of that government.

Shouldn’t the same smarmy-pharisaical Lost Angeles Slimes editorial board have also said:

But the accommodation must stop at the point at which a public official refuses to discharge his legal duty by invoking his OWN “God authority,” as Obama has done.

Pathologically dishonest, hypocrite Democrats keep playing the “God game” where they invoke religion or God or even the Bible to pervert these when they can twist them into supporting their ideology.  Oh, yes, you pathologically dishonest hypocrite lying liberal Democrat:

Obama invokes Jesus more than Bush

He’s done it while talking about abortion and the Middle East, even the economy. The references serve at once as an affirmation of his faith and a rebuke against a rumor that persists for some to this day.

As president, Barack Obama has mentioned Jesus Christ in a number of high-profile public speeches — something his predecessor George W. Bush rarely did in such settings, even though Bush’s Christian faith was at the core of his political identity. […]

What is always fascist and wrong for thee is always right and good for me, Democrats believe as a matter of their religion of fascist emperor worship.

You listen to twisted liars like Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton and you’d think that Jesus was a fervent socialist when JESUS NEVER SAID A SINGLE WORD AFFIRMING THE EXPANSION OF HUMAN GOVERNMENT.  And when in fact it was human government that violated its own “laws” to put Jesus to death.  Just like Jesus was NOT a homosexual and Jesus HATES abortion murder.  And then these same Democrats ban religion from intruding into their unholy human government all the other times because all of the above flat-out refute everything-the-hell-they’re-doing and every-reason-the-hell-why-they’re-doing it.  Religion is a tool that demonic Democrats cynically exploit to impose their godless way even as they scream out against any who would legitimately follow its actual teachings.  Which is why Democrats have demanded that Christians be barred and banned from being able to exercise their religion and their religious freedom in every practical way imaginable, even as they impose THEIR religion of secular humanism time and time and time again.

And yes, atheism and secular humanism ARE religions:

Atheists Score Major Win In Federal Court
by Jack Jenkins Nov 3, 2014 9:59am

A federal district court in Oregon has declared Secular Humanism a religion, paving the way for the non-theistic community to obtain the same legal rights as groups such as Christianity.

On Thursday, October 30, Senior District Judge Ancer Haggerty issued a ruling on American Humanist Association v. United States, a case that was brought by the American Humanist Association (AHA) and Jason Holden, a federal prisoner. Holden pushed for the lawsuit because he wanted Humanism — which the AHA defines as “an ethical and life-affirming philosophy free of belief in any gods and other supernatural forces” — recognized as a religion so that his prison would allow for the creation of a Humanist study group. Haggerty sided with the plaintiffs in his decision, citing existing legal precedent and arguing that denying Humanists the same rights as groups such as Christianity would be highly suspect under the Establishment Clause in the U.S. Constitution, which declares that Congress “shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”

“The court finds that Secular Humanism is a religion for Establishment Clause purposes,” the ruling read.

The decision highlights the unusual position of the Humanist community, which has tried for years to obtain the same legal rights as more traditional religious groups while simultaneously rebuking the existence of a god or gods. But while some Humanists may chafe at being called a “religion,” others feel that the larger pursuit of equal rights trumps legal classifications.

Mind you, you can google the phrase, “Religion is man’s way to reach God; Christianity is God’s way to reach man” and find that many Christians reject that CHRISTIANITY is a “religion.”  But it is only Democrats’ atheists and secular humanists who get to play both sides of the field and represent themselves as NOT being a “religion” whenever it suits them as they tear down “religion” but they ARE a “religion” whenever it suits them as they apply the “if you can’t beat them, join them” in order to be a “Fifth Column and destroy religion from within” tactic.

Meanwhile they get to impose their atheist and secular humanist RELIGIOUS VALUES all over the damn place as they impose their tyrannous religion on everybody else.  All while loudly asserting that they’re somehow “protecting us from religion.”

Because to be a “Democrat” is to be a “moral cockroach hypocrite.”

When you’re screaming in hell, Democrat – and one day, soon, mark my words, you WILL BE screaming in hell – I just want you to remember that you’re not burning in hell for your blatant abandonment of MY morality.  No, you’re be burning in hell for your OWN hypocrite double-standards where what was right became what was wrong because you’re a twisted pervert and what was wrong became right because you’re a twisted pervert.  You’re going to burn in hell by your OWN standard, applied to YOU by the very God Whose authority you dedicated your life to trying to end.

So I’ll tell you what’s going to happen here: that poor virtuous Kentucky Clerk, Kim Davis, is going to be persecuted and punished in the name of “the law” by the same lawless thug system that has been running roughshod over the law for the past six damn years.  And our “justice” system is going to do it, because:

“The law has become paralyzed, and there is no justice in the courts. The wicked far outnumber the righteous, so that justice has become perverted.” — Habakkuk 1:4

Which is why I am now calling “judges” INjustices.  They have nothing to do with “justice” any more.

God announced that He was going to bring HELL to such a wicked nation.  Start reading from verse five on to see that.  And He’s preparing this country for the same fate.

But don’t worry.  Democrats have ended God’s authority.  The God of the Bible is now powerless, they triumphantly assert: only godless, wicked human government is omnipotent and has the divine right to crush any obstacle in its unholy path.

 

Democrat Party: Don’t You DARE Aggressively Question Mass-Murdering Terrorists Who Brutally Behead Americans And Slaughter Children

December 17, 2014

Don’t you DARE touch our precious terrorist friends, you Republican monsters.  We who rabidly despise America and we who rabidly despise any Christian influence over America and who have murdered more than 60 million babies in our abortion mills love and protect our friends who share our desire to impose our dictatorial tyranny via an all-powerful state.

THAT is what DEMOCRATS declared in their so-called “report” which cherry-picked documents and which refused to interview a single professional who was there in a viciously partisan witch hunt.

The experts UNANIMOUSLY declare that 1) waterboarding is NOT torture and 2) the Enhanced Interrogation Techniques WORKED.

ISIS/ISIL is no different from the Democrat Party.  After all, both of these moral monsters claim they are actually saving American lives:

The Islamic State’s bloody campaign of public beheadings is actually intended to save American lives, Britain’s most notorious Islamic cleric declared in a radio interview Sunday.

“One of the primary reasons why you see what you are seeing on your own television and Internet is to try to end the war quickly,” stated radical preacher Anjem Choudary when asked to justify the ISIS beheadings.

“This kind of terrorizing and horrifying the enemy is saying to them, ‘Look don’t engage with them. Stay away.’ This is supposed to be something which drives the enemy away and therefore saves many lives.”

Like the modern Democrat Party, ISIS/ISIL hates Jesus, the WORD, even as they rabidly hate THE WORD OF GOD as they continually prove by being a fire hose of pure evil that imposes wicked, demonic policy atop wicked, demonic policy.

And so Democrats will defend to the last life of the last American citizen terrorists’ right to do this without fear of interrogation:

Reverend Canon Andrew White, head of the only Anglican church in Iraq, described in a recent interview some of the atrocities committed against Iraqi Christians by the Islamic State, including the beheading of four children who refused to convert to Islam and told their killers, “We love Yeshua [Jesus], we have always loved Yeshua.”

THIS is what Democrats prefer to the enhanced interrogation methods that broke terrorists and led to intelligence breakthroughs that kept decent people safe:

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — The Taliban massacre that killed 148 people, mostly children, at a military-run school in northwestern Pakistan left a scene of heart-wrenching devastation, pools of blood and young lives snuffed out as the nation mourned and mass funerals for the victims got underway Wednesday.

The attack at the Army Public School and College in the city of Peshawar on Tuesday was the deadliest slaughter of innocents in the country and horrified a nation already weary of unending terrorist assaults.

Blood was still splattered on the floor and the stairs as media were allowed inside the school a day after the attack. Torn notebooks, pieces of clothing and children’s shoes were scattered about amid broken window glass, door frames and upturned chairs. A pair of child’s eyeglasses lay broken on the ground.

Prayer vigils were held across Pakistan and in other schools, students spoke of their shock at the brutal slayings in Peshawar, where children and teenagers were gunned down and some of the female teachers burned alive. Army commandos fought the Taliban in a day-long battle until the school was cleared and all the attackers were dead.

The attack began when seven Taliban gunmen, explosives strapped to their bodies, scaled a back wall using a ladder to get into the school on Tuesday morning. Once inside, they made their way into the main auditorium where many students had gathered for an event, military spokesman Maj. Gen. Asim Bajwa told reporters during the tour Wednesday.

The militants then made their way to the hall’s stage and started shooting at random. As students tried to flee for the doors, they were shot and killed. The military recovered about 100 bodies from the auditorium alone, Bajwa said.

Democrats demand that we bow down to the thugs who want to impose Government in place of God because that’s precisely what THEY want to do.

We all know the scenario from the movies: terrorists are just about to launch a monstrous attack that would slaughter hundreds, thousands or even millions of innocents.  But we catch one of the roaches just short of too late and somebody with a vestige of moral courage inflicts a tiny fraction of the misery the terrorist insect would inflict on as many innocents as possible.  And makes him TALK.

Democrats are officially on the record saying don’t you DARE, hero.  Let the millions of innocents perish to protect the sacred liberal value of the people forced to become passive, helpless sheep powerless to avoid a fate imposed on them by those who worship the power to control them.

Go ahead and choose death, America.  Choose death by the tens of millions in the Democrat Party’s abortion mills.  Choose death with Democrats as they bring on the wrath of God upon America for their worship of homosexuality according to the Word of God.  Choose death by demanding that those who are desperately trying to keep this nation safe are hamstrung so that they will not dare do what they need to do to fight monstrous evil.

The heart of the Democrat Party is the heart of darkness.  They are people who have proven again and again that they believe good is evil and evil is good.

Here is the counsel of the Word of GOD concerning this wicked Democrat Party:

The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. – Genesis 6:5

“Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Because of this, wrath has gone out against you from the LORD” – 2 Chronicles 19:2

A wise man’s heart directs him toward the right, but the foolish man’s heart directs him toward the left. — Ecclesiastes 10:2

You love evil more than good, Falsehood more than speaking what is right. — Psalm 52:3

But he who sins against Me injures himself; all those who hate Me love death — Proverbs 8:36

There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. — Proverbs 14:12

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! — Isaiah 5:20

You who hate good and love evil, Who tear off their skin from them And their flesh from their bones — Micah 3:2

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools – Romans 1:22

For God’s wrath is being revealed from heaven against all the ungodliness and wickedness of those who in their wickedness suppress the truth – Romans 1:18

In their case, the god of this world has blinded the minds of those who do not believe to keep them from seeing the light of the glorious gospel of the Messiah, who is the image of God. — 2 Corinthians 4:4

Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron — 1 Timothy 4:2

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come…  — 2 Timothy 3:1

For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. — 2 Tim 4:3-4

Now we have Obama the rabid fascist dictator once again urinating on the Constitution and defecating on the will of the American people as he vomits out yet another fascist executive order that unilaterally imposes Obama’s thug nature on America.

Obama acknowledged that he was single-handedly abrogating fifty-three years of U.S. policy regarding Cuba.  What he refused to admit is that Congress in 1996 STRENGTHENED the decades-old law.  It was called the Helms-Burton Act and it was passed by Congress – not that that matters to this anti-American Nazi – and signed into law by President Clinton.  You now, just like the Defense Of Marriage Act that Obama treasonously decided he was above as our Führer-in-Chief.

We have never seen a president or a political part that has been so contemptuous of the law in American history.  You have to go to Hitler and his godless, socialist Nazi Party or Stalin and his godless, socialist Communist Party for any historic parallel to what we’ve seen from Obama and his godless, socialist Democrat Party.

As you consider how evil Democrats are treating our intelligence professionals who desperately tried to do what they had to do to keep America safe after a massive attack in the midst of widespread fear that there was more to come, consider that wicked Democrats are treating our police the SAME EXACT WAY as they chant in the streets, “What do we want?”  “Dead cops!!!”  “When do we want it?”  “NOW!!!”

And the same damned Democrats who demand intelligence professionals be neutered in their mission to keep America safe from terrorist murderers demand that our police professionals be neutered in their ability to keep America safe from every other kind of murderer.  As it is now, our police can’t even keep THEMSELVES safe from these vile, violent Democrat Party fascists.

Amazingly, Democrat NYC Mayor de Blasio will meet with violent protesters… but NOT with cops.

Police are saying, “We don’t need you cockroach liberal fascists coming to our funerals now that you Democrats have sicced your mobs of vicious Democrat thugs on us.

I don’t doubt for one nanosecond that that is PRECISELY the view that our intelligence professionals have toward Obama and his Demoroaches.

There will soon come a moment when U.S. intelligence captures a terrorist who will have detailed knowledge of a massive attack against the citizens of the United States.  And because of Barack Hussein Obama and the wicked party of Barack Hussein Obama, our forces will either field-execute the rat bastard or they will look at him helplessly as he defiantly mocks them knowing that they do not dare touch him.  And Americans will die and they will deserve to die because they voted to cover themselves in the demon-possessed wickedness of Obama and his Democrat Party.  And all I can do is quote the exact words of Obama’s “reverend” for 23 years:

No, no, no!  NOT God bless America!  God DAMN America!”

 

For The Simple Factual Record, No Homosexual Has EVER Been Deprived Of The Right To Marry.

March 26, 2013

I’ve heard this argument – a la Hitler’s “big lie” – so many times that if I’d vomited every time I heard it, I would have barfed myself into vapor by now.  That’s why they call it “ad nauseum,” I suppose.

“Everyone has a fundamental right to marry,” we’re told.  And so homosexual marriage is not merely a Constitutional issue, but a human rights issue.

But here’s the damn obvious question: when have homosexuals EVER been denied the right to marry?

A homosexual can marry anybody of the opposite sex of maritable age and status who will have them, the same as everybody else.  Nobody has had their right to marry deprived from them.

I challenge anybody to find me an example of a single case in which a homosexual was denied the right to marry, given what marriage is: the union between one man and one woman.  Just find me one time when a homosexual tried to marry and was denied the right to do so.

Let’s put it this way: if homosexuals are somehow being defined as having been denied the right to marry, you have to employ a definition of “marriage” that no society has ever before embraced.  Which is to say that you literally have to assume what you want to prove and then use what you just assumed as your “proof.”  To wit, “marriage” is the union between a man and a woman under God.  That is what it has ALWAYS been.  Which is why no civilization has ever called for homosexual marriage.  And unless you assume that marriage is somehow something else (which it isn’t and has never been), no homosexual has EVER been denied “the right to marry.”

That’s what we call facts.  That’s what we call logic.  That’s what we call morality.  And that’s what we call history.  Homosexual marriage fails on all counts.  It is an oxymoron.  “Homosexual marriage” is like “liquid solid.”  It is like “adult children.”  You can’t have both.  It is either one or the other.  Unless you want think of “adult children” in the Obamanomics sense in which young people have been “fundamentally transformed” into permanent “children” because they’ll never be able to get a job in this disastrous economy and will therefore be helpless dependents forever.  In that Orwellian sense in which “freedom is slavery” and “ignorance is strength,” I suppose anything is possible – even “homosexual marriage.”

“Homosexual marriage” is non sequitur unless you begin by perverting the thing in language that you then want to pervert in actuality.  When I hear somebody mouthing this idiocy of homosexuals being denied the right to marry, I know that I am in the presence of a true moral and intellectual idiot.  And I excuse myself in search of somebody who is actually worth having an intellectual conversation with.

If homosexuals don’t want to marry, fine by me.  But don’t whine because you don’t want what decent, healthy people want.

Homosexuals don’t want the right to marry; they want the right to pervert the institution of marriage.  Period.

Yet Another Federal Judge Rules ObamaCare Mandate Unconstitutional

September 15, 2011

It’s not like Barack Hussein Obama – a “constitutional scholar,” we were told – gives one slimy cockroach crap about the U.S. Constitution.  Recently, before deciding that his government would not follow (i.e. that the Obama regime would BREAK) federal immigration law and refuse to deport hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who had had their day in court and LOST, Obama told a Hispanic group the following in explaining why he couldn’t do what they wanted:

“The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you, not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”

And then a few weeks later Obama did the very thing he himself had categorically stated was both undemocratic and unconstitutional.

He also previously similarly ignored federal law – law passed by both branches of Congress and signed into law by Democrat President Clinton – and decreed that his government would ignore the Defense of Marriage Act.  He has now held that the power of law resides within the power of the Führer alone.  The law doesn’t matter if Obama doesn’t like it.  He alone as our Messiah stands transcendantly above the law and the rule of law.

So it doesn’t surprise me whatsoever that he rammed a despicable undemocratic and unconstitutional takeover of the health care system.  He has PROVEN that he doesn’t give a damn about the Constitution or the rule of law.

Pa. fed judge knocks down key Obamacare health care requirement
Published: Tuesday, September 13, 2011
By MARC LEVY,
Associated Press

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The requirement in the national health-care overhaul law that individuals buy health insurance is unconstitutional, a federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled Tuesday in a question that the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to settle.

The suit decided by Judge Christopher C. Conner in Harrisburg is one of more than 30 lawsuits nationwide that have been filed over the 2010 law that is President Barack Obama’s signature initiative.

Conner, who was appointed to the federal bench in 2002 by President George W. Bush, said the individual mandate is an unconstitutional extension of authority granted to the federal government under the Constitution’s commerce clause.

“The nation undoubtably faces a health care crisis,” Conner said. “Scores of individuals are uninsured and the costs to all citizens are measurable and significant. The federal government, however, is one of limited enumerated powers, and Congress’s efforts to remedy the ailing health care and health insurance markets must fit squarely within the boundaries of those powers.”

But Conner rejected an argument by the plaintiffs — a York County couple, Barbara Goudy-Bachman and Gregory Bachman — that the mandate is “disastrous to this nation’s future, such as the Bachmans’ prediction of America evolving into a socialist state. These suggestions of cataclysmic results … are both unproductive and unpersuasive.”

While most of the massive law can remain intact, Conner said, certain provisions are linked to the health insurance requirement and must also be struck down. Those provisions are designed to guarantee that insurance companies cannot discriminate against or deny coverage to the sick or people with pre-existing conditions.

Separate lawsuits have already reached appeals courts in Richmond, Va., Atlanta and Cincinnati, with one of those courts ruling against the mandate.

It’s time to return to the wisdom of Ronald Reagan who confronted such a socialist takeover attempt of medicine in his own day and said:

But at the moment I’d like to talk about another way. Because this threat is with us and at the moment is more imminent.

One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. Most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.

Now, the American people, if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose, would unhesitatingly vote against it. We had an example of this. Under the Truman administration it was proposed that we have a compulsory health insurance program for all people in the United States, and, of course, the American people unhesitatingly rejected this.

The polls overwhelmingly demonstrated that what was true in Reagan’s day is every bit as true today.  The American people never wanted this vile and un-American monstrosity.

It is unconstitutional.  It is an unconstitutional TAKEOVER meant to impose socialism.  Obama knows it; that’s why he will NOT let this come before the Surpreme Court where it would be overturned.  Rather, he has done everything he could to delay that day of reckoning.

Which is paralyzing businesses who need to know their cost if they are going to take the risk of hiring workers.

Barack Obama has been granting waivers to the very leftwing unions and businesses who helped Obama impose ObamaCare so that they would not have to pay the way all the OTHER Americans will have to pay.

Impeach Obama from office before he damages this nation beyond the possibility of repair.  Because that point of no return is rushing toward us.

Marriage Undefended: Obama Decides To Ignore Law Passed By Congress And Signed By Pres. Clinton

February 23, 2011

Let me first go back to Barack Obama’s own words as candidate for president:

Asked to define marriage, Obama said it “is the union between a man and a woman.”

That was when he was running.  His promises don’t matter though.  This man is a documented liar.  He is an evil man.  Why should his promises and what he said when we was seeking votes matter?

Obama promised that he would transcend the political divide.  The New York Times called that promise “the core of Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.”  And I want someone to explain to me how doing undermining something that Republicans and many Democrats approve of and which was signed into law by Democrat President Bill Clinton isn’t a vicious gut-punch to Obama’s “core promise” to the American people???

That’s first of all.  Second, let’s say that George W. Bush had taken a law – oh, let’s say laws protecting unions or civil rights laws – and said, “I don’t think this is constitutional and we’re not going to uphold it anymore.  We aren’t going to recognize anything that says we have an obligation to recognize that.  I’m president, and I can do whatever I want.”  [See more on the ramifications of this despicable view at the bottom of this article].

Democrats would RIGHTLY have called for Bush’s impeachment.  Because like the laws or don’t like them, the laws of the land are the laws of the land.  And the president has the constitional duty to uphold laws that have been passed by Congress and signed into law by a president of the United States.

This is unthinkable.  It is unconstitutional.  It is an abuse of the office of the presidency.  If Obama gave a flying damn about the Constitution, he could begin by pursuing his role within it and recognizing the authority and the power of both the Legislative and the Judiciary branches which he just stomped all over.  And yes, Barack Obama should be impeached.

President Obama Instructs Justice Department to Stop Defending Defense of Marriage Act calls Clinton-Signed Law “Unconstitutional”
February 23, 2011 12:39 PM
by Jake Tapper, ABC News Senior White House Correspondent

President Obama has instructed the Justice Department to stop defending the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, which has since 1996 allowed states to refuse to recognize same-sex partnerships legally recognized in other states.

The announcement was made in a letter from Attorney General Eric Holder to congressional leaders in relation to two lawsuits, Pedersen v. OPM and Windsor v. United States, which challenge a section of DOMA that defines marriage for federal purposes as only between one man and one woman.

President Obama believes that section – Section 3 — “is unconstitutional” given the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment (including its equal protection component), Holder wrote, and the president has instructed the Department of Justice to no longer defend the law in those two lawsuits.

President Obama “has made the determination,” Holder wrote, that Section 3 “as applied to same-sex couples who are legally married under state law, violates the equal protection component of the Fifth Amendment.”

DOMA was passed by a Republican House and Senate and signed into law by Democratic President Bill Clinton in 1996. In application the law means same-sex couples are not afforded the same rights as straight couples when it comes to Social Security benefits, hospital visitation and other rights.

Following presidential precedent, the Obama administration has been defending the law even though President Obama has long opposed it.

But now, “under heightened scrutiny” since the 2nd circuit court asked for the administration to defend its position given lack of precedent, Holder wrote, the government’s ability to defend the law can no longer be made by “advancing hypothetical rationales, independent of the legislative record, as it has done in circuits where precedent mandates application of rational basis review.  Instead, the United States can defend Section 3 only by invoking Congress’ actual justifications for the law.”

That legislative record, Holder wrote, “contains discussion and debate that undermines any defense under heightened scrutiny.  The record contains numerous expressions reflecting moral disapproval of gays and lesbians and their intimate and family relationships – precisely the kind of stereotype-based thinking and animus the Equal Protection Clause is designed to guard against.”

Chuck Donovan, a senior research fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation said that “After a series of steps that undermined the legal case for the Defense of Marriage Act, the Obama Administration has apparently decided to drop its mask and publicly switch sides.  This action raises the stakes in this litigation even higher, because both portions of DOMA – both the federal definition of marriage as the union of a man and a woman, as well as the authority of Congress under Article 4 of the Constitution to interpret the Full Faith and Credit Clause to allow states to protect similar definitions – are now at heightened risk.”

Last month, then-White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said that “we can’t declare the law unconstitutional…The President believes, as you said, that this is a law that should not exist and should be repealed.  But we, at the same time, have to represent the viewpoint of the defendant.” Gibbs said that “given the current makeup of the Congress,” having DOMA repealed would be :inordinately challenging,”

President Obama told Holder that the Executive Branch of the government will continue to enforce Section 3 “consistent with the Executive’s obligation to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, unless and until Congress repeals Section 3 or the judicial branch renders a definitive verdict against the law’s constitutionality.  This course of action respects the actions of the prior Congress that enacted DOMA, and it recognizes the judiciary as the final arbiter of the constitutional claims raised.”

In Zanesville, OH, in June 2008, then-candidate Obama said DOMA “was a unnecessary imposition on what had been the traditional rules governing marriage and how states interact on the issues of marriage.”

“This is a monumental decision for the thousands of same-sex couples and their families who want nothing more than the same rights and dignity afforded to other married couples,” said Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, an advocacy group for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender individuals. Congressional leaders must not waste another taxpayer dollar defending this patently unconstitutional law. The federal government has no business picking and choosing which legal marriages they want to recognize.  Instead Congress should take this opportunity to wipe the stain of marriage discrimination from our laws.”

A reminder that in June 2009, President Obama’s DOJ began its defense of the Defense of Marriage Act by invoking incest and adults marrying children.

This did not go over particularly well among some of the president’s supporters.

In July 2010, a judge ruled against the Obama administration.

Also in June 2009, the president extended some benefits to same sex partners of federal employees.

At a news conference in December of 2010, shortly after signing into law a repeal of the military’s ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ policy toward gay servicemembers, I asked the President if it was “intellectually consistent to say that gay and lesbians should be able to fight and die for this country, but they should not be able to marry the people they love?”

Gay marriage, he said, is an issue with which he struggles.

“My feelings about this are constantly evolving,” he said. “I struggle with this.  I have friends, I have people who work for me who are in powerful, strong, long-lasting gay or lesbian unions, and they are extraordinary people, and this is something that means a lot to them and they care deeply about.”

At this point, “unconstitutional” becomes the adjective which best describes the Obama presidency.  And I’m not just talking about the bizarre inability of this man to produce a birth certificate.  I am stating that Obama is now not a president, but a dictator.  Because dictators place themselves above the law, just as Obama is doing now.

The Defense of Marriage Act was passed in 1996.  It passed both the House of Representatives and the United States Senate and was signed into law by then-President Bill Clinton.  The Supreme Court has not said anything about this being in any way unconstitutional for fifteen years.  And it is Obama’s role as our Lord and our God, and the ONLY Lord and God with whom we have to do, to overturn the constitutional process, the Congress, the law of the land and the will of the people???

The Constitution is not a salad bar which allows you to pick and choose what you like and what you don’t like.  Unless you’re a liberal who despises truth, who believes truth doesn’t even exist and holds that the truth is whatever you can make it.  I’ve described the invariable outcome of that view before: it’s called fascism.

We have a history of liberal activist judges who usurp their constitutional role all the time.  Now we’ve got a president who thinks he’s a liberal activist judge.  And who gets to sit in judgment over the Constitution and every law that has been passed before him.

Obama also thinks he is the entire liberal constitutional philosophy in microchosm.  Liberalism holds that the Constitution means nothing in and of itself, that it is constantly changing and that only the changes reflected in current liberal rulings have any real power (if conservatives embrace the exact same philosophy, of course, then they and only they are wrong).  And lo and behold, “Obama’s views on same-sex marriage are ‘evolving,’” and so therefore obviously the Constitution must be evolving.  Because everything revolves around Obama.

Obama should be impeached.  And the only reason he won’t be is that Democrats as a class don’t much give a damn about the Constitution, either.  And the Democrats still control the Senate.

Just remember this, Democrats.  If Obama gets away with this, the next Republican president has the right by precedent to decide which laws HE wants to ignore.  And you will have supported that right by supporting what Barry Hussein is doing right now.

The “Hunt Every Democrat And Burn Them Alive Act” is coming.  I can feel it.  And when it comes, Democrats will have burned themselves.

Update, Feb 24: Rush Limbaugh was on his game today.  He mentioned that this wasn’t about gay marriage – as bad as that is – but rather about a president who is lawless.  This is a president who is literally community agitating in several states across the republic; this is the president who is ignoring a federal judge’s ruling that his health care program is unconstitutional; thisis a president who enacted sweeping environmental rulings through his EPA because the United States Congress would never have allowed such a radical agenda to pass; and this is a president who added more czars than just about every president before him combined.  And now this is the president who makes himself the sole arbiter of what is “constitutional” and what is not.

And so Limbaugh started talking about a President Palin doing the same things (including not being able to produce her birth certificate, because you don’t think the left would make an issue out of that if she couldn’t?).  This President Palin – citing Barack Obama as her justifying precedent – would determine that she did not think Roe v. Wade was constitutional, and so so sorry, but it wouldn’t be defended any longer.  This President Palin would look at ObamaCare and virtually anything else she didn’t like (e.g. drilling bans) and simply determine that they weren’t constitutional on her view as dictator #2 (Obama having set the stage as dictator #1), and so would not be defended.  And further, whereas the Obama White House meets repeatedly every week with union thug president Richard Trumka to plot strategy on how to “punish their enemies.”   So just imagine President Palin meeting with big oil, big business and big insurance three plus times per week to plot how to punish liberals and liberal groups.  All in secret, of course, and all justified by Obama indifference to the Constitution and hostility to any interest that doesn’t pay billions to his campaign warchest.

Republicans now have a huge majority in the House.  And yes, they are heavily favored to re-take the Senate in 2012, thanks to Democrats being the vile cockroaches that they are.  Meanwhile, Obama’s approval has plunged well below 50% in states he needs to win.

Like I said, the “Hunt Every Democrat Down With Dogs And Burn Them Alive Act” is coming, and its coming thanks to Democrats as conservatives learn the new rules of the game that Obama started.

Democrats are howling about Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker not listening and bargaining with unions.  Don’t you dare forget, you vile hypocrite Democrats, how Republicans and even many Democrats spent the last two years shut out and not even getting to know what was happening, let alone have a vote in uber-liberal government takeovers like ObamaCare.  And how dare you whine as the same hell you unleased comes back to you?

The massive Obama stimulus that heavily favored blue states and blue districts and ObamaCare were Pearl Harbor moments for conservatives.  And just as decent American people gave the Imperial Japanese the hell they richly deserved, decent American people are more than ready to give imperialist liberals the hell that they richly deserve.

This has become a war.  Obama promised to transcend the partisan divide, but he is a liar and a cheat who plunged deeply into that divide than any American preisent in history.  It is an ideological and cultural war being fought over every front for what precisouAnd it is a war because liberals and Democrats have incapable of any other political approach.  When they have the power, they use that power in an un-American fashion.  And when they don’t have the power, they use their mainstream media voice to bitch and whine about how the other side that they never once listened to when they had the power won’t listen to them.
