Today Obama decided that he is once again above the law of the land, The Constitution of the United States and shoved aside the oath, which meant nothing to him in the first place, in declaring that the DOMA law is unconstitutional and ordered his administration to stop defending it at all cost. Of course his butt kissing socialist Attorney General who doesn’t even know that the US Constitution exists from his past actions confirmed that his (not that of the people) office would abdicate it’s responsibility to fight for the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) by abandoning it in the courts.
"After careful consideration, including a review of my recommendation... the Department has declined to defend a statute in cases, like this one, where the President has concluded that the statute is unconstitutional... "Somehow I remember in 8th grade civics that it was up to the SCOTUS and Congress to decide if a law was unconstitutional, not the POTUS and his Attorney General.
Hugo Chavez may be able to do such but this is still the United States of America last time I checked even though it is fading fast.
Holder continued to show his arrogance toward the law by saying”
...he "fully concurs] with the President's determination," has given the order for DOJ attorneys to cease and desist. " The Department has a longstanding practice of defending the constitutionality of duly-enacted statutes," Holder insists, "if reasonable arguments can be made in their defense." The Department does not, however, consider the argument for man-woman marriage—support.
This White House has declared war--not only on marriage--but on Congress, whose authority this President now rejects. It is time for Congress and WE THE PEOPLE to remind him of what is written on that yellowed parchment which gives empowerment to this President is also the one that demands,
“He shall take care that the laws be faithfully enforced." And where he fails, Congress must not.
How much more disregard of the Constitution will the American People stand for. He interfers in State’s rights , a violation of the X Amendment and now this.
Who will call a halt to this flagrant violation of the Laws of the Land?
Is this another test of what he can get away with to bring forth a "contrived crisis"?
How long before We The People take to the streets or have we lost our will?
