Obama Administration Rejects Congress as Well as Court System

February 23rd, 2011 No comments

WASHINGTON: Today the Obama administration has announced another shocking decision, not so much for its impact but for its precedent. Today Eric Holder announced in so many words that the Obama administration does not care what the legislative branch of the federal government requires, and neither does the Obama administration care to wait for the judicial branch to determine the constitutionality of legislation. To heck with the balance of powers delegated to the federal branches of our government by our Founding Fathers. The Obama administration deems it their responsibility to only enforce laws that they feel they agree with. Other laws don’t matter.

The Obama administration announced Wednesday that it has pulled its legal support for the federal Defense of Marriage Act, stating that the law fails to meet constitutional scrutiny standards and therefore the administration is under no obligation to defend it.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a statement released Wednesday that President Obama has decided that his administration “will cease defense of Section 3,” which states that marriage is between one man and one woman.

“[T]he President has concluded that given a number of factors, including a documented history of discrimination, classifications based on sexual orientation should be subject to a more heightened standard of scrutiny,” Mr. Holder said. “The President has also concluded that Section 3 of DOMA, as applied to legally married same-sex couples, fails to meet that standard and is therefore unconstitutional. Given that conclusion, the President has instructed the Department not to defend the statute in such cases. I fully concur with the President’s determination.”

The decision effectively throws the defense of DOMA into the lap of Congress, which can instruct its own attorneys to defend federal laws. Mr. Holder said he had informed members of Congress of the decision so that “members who wish to defend the statute may pursue that option.” The Washington Times

Since when is Congress in charge of enforcing laws? That is the job of the executive branch. If the attorney general won’t enforce the laws Congress enacts, who will?

Is our citizenry that ignorant of our Constitution that it can swallow this nonsense? We know what Obama thinks of the Constitution, but we still harbor a glimmer of hope that there are those in this country that still understand our system of government. All of these officials swore to uphold the Constitution, but their sworn pledges obviously mean nothing. This disrespect to our system of laws is the same kind of behavior favored by regimes in Libya, Egypt, and Venezuela. With this kind of behavior would you really be shocked to see Obama someday declared Chancellor for Life? Where is the outrage in this country?

Eric Holder Won’t Even Say The Words “Radical Islam”

May 15th, 2010 No comments

WASHINGTON: Just a reminder, Eric Holder is Attorney General of the United States. He is in charge of keeping us safe. In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee he refuses to even say the words “Radical Islam.” Hearing Holder dissemble and evade the question gives substantive insight into the mindset of this administration. It is clear that in this administration’s view not only are we not at war with terror, but there is no such thing as “Radical Islam.”

Here are 2 questions for you:

  1. Are you one of the folks who voted for Obama?
  2. Are you feeling safer now than you did 2 years ago?

Bomber Turned Over To INTERPOL, French Detective in Charge

February 3rd, 2010 2 comments

Umar Farouk AbdulmutallabWASHINGTON: Obama, citing his recent decision granting INTERPOL diplomatic immunity announced today that jurisdiction over the fizzled panty bomber Abdul Farouk Mutallab is now being handed over to INTERPOL. This is a stunning reversal from White House secretary Robert Gibbs’ statement on January 25th that the 50 minute interrogation of Mutallab was enough.

There has been harsh criticism of the administration over their handling of the incident. Serious charges have been leveled that the administration, by ignoring the Geneva Convention, has put the USA at risk. Three days after the bomber was captured he warned that there was more to follow. Charges of incompetence have been leveled against Director of Homeland Security who shortly after the failed bombing crowed, “The System Worked.”

Responding to these charges today Obama read this statement during his daily teleprompter briefing:

Our decision to try Abdul Farouk Mutallab in civilian courts was an admirable one. It was intended to show the international community that the US recognizes the rule of law and no longer will conduct “cowboy diplomacy” in handling man-made disasters.

While our intentions were admirable, we did not go far enough. Recent criticism of our actions have made us realize that the proper handling of internationals is best handled by INTERPOL. After all that is why the organization was created.  It was for just such a case as this one that on December 17th I gave INTERPOL diplomatic immunity to operate here in the US. Little did we know just how wise and timely this decision that would prove to be.

For this reason we are now turning Mutallab over to French authorities who are sending over their Chief Inspector who will handle the interrogation and investigation. We are hereby dropping all civilian charges against Mutallab and any subsequent legal action against Mutallab will be at the discretion of INTERPOL.

INTERPOL has extensive experience in handling these types of investigations. Make no mistake– our ceding jurisdiction of this affair to INTERPOL will substantially increase our standing in the world community and will prevent Al-Qaeda from using US involvement in this matter as a recruitment tool.

NEW YORK, NY: Yesterday several thousand protestors gathered in NYC to rally against Obama’s decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other 911 conspirators as civilians in federal court. The outrage shared among the participants fired up the crowd Saturday at Foley Square as they battled harsh weather conditions during the 2 hour rally. The NIP has previously written about the real objectives of this show trial, and condemns the trial’s violation of the Geneva Convention.

During the rally Actor Brian Dennehy read a statement from the parents of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, whose beheading by KSM was broadcast in 2002 on video for the world to witness:

“We, who witnessed the darkest side of hell, and have since spent every moment of our lives studying the anatomy of terror, we refuse to accept the strategy of normalization that Holder’s decision represents. Terror is a crime against society, and should not be tried in the same court as crimes against individuals or against a particular country.”

EL MARCO reported that last Tuesday NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly revealed that city officials were not even consulted by Attorney General Eric Holder prior to the announcement: Read more…
