5 Ways Obama Has Destroyed The Rule Of Law In America

When you allow unlawful acts to go unpunished, you’re moving toward a government of men rather than a government of law; you’re moving toward anarchy. And that’s exactly what we’re doing. — John Wayne

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. — George Orwell

 

Tell me why any American should respect the law?

Because it’s moral? Not necessarily. Slavery was once the law of the land. Abortion is the law of the land today. Even in a nation like America, it’s not unusual for laws to be unfair, unjust, and even immoral.

Is it because laws represent the will of the people? Not anymore. Today, the “law” is often summarily created from murky statutes by unelected bureaucrats who face no consequences for destroying people’s lives.

Well, is the law at least equally applied? Absolutely not. Your political affiliation and how well connected you are to the regime in charge can have a direct bearing on whether you’re prosecuted for breaking the law and how serious the penalty will be.

So, what’s left?

It’s an Obama World… White House Asks Parents to Monitor Kids For Signs of Terrorism

The White House recently asked parents to monitor their kids for signs of terrorism but goes to great lengths to not tie any religion to acts of violence. That would be Islamophobic.
The Daily Caller reported:

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15.

Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the Muslim terrorists behind the Boston bombings.

In the very next paragraph, Monaco specifically noted racist and disgustingly anti-Semitic beliefs of Frazier Glenn Miller, the 73-year-old former Ku Klux Klan leader accused of gunning down three people at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas last Sunday…

Lisa O. Monaco lists a few warning signs for parents but goes out of her way not to mention Islam:

What kinds of behaviors are we talking about? For the most part, they’re not related directly to plotting attacks. They’re more subtle. For instance, parents might see sudden personality changes in their children at home—becoming confrontational. Religious leaders might notice unexpected clashes over ideological differences. Teachers might hear a student expressing an interest in traveling to a conflict zone overseas. Or friends might notice a new interest in watching or sharing violent material.

So what kind of religious leaders is she talking about? What conflict zone might she be sugggesting?

The depths of denial by this administration regarding radical Islam has gone from ridiculous to asinine. This administration’s avoidance of the truth is no longer humorous, it’s dangerous.

 

Still no charges filed in Gibson Guitar raid

American Thinker

This excellent report from Reason TV on the Gibson Guitar raid by DHS and the Fish and Wildlife Department explains a lot about the bureaucratic overreach involved.

‘They…come in with weapons, they seized a half-million dollars worth of property, they shut our factory down, and they have not charged us with anything,’ says Gibson Guitars CEO Henry Juszkiewicz, referring to the August 2011 raid on his Nashville.

Note the sneering, smirking Environmental Investigation Agency employee who counters the Gibson CEO’s claims. Insufferable.

The video is about 6 minutes long.

Court Documents: Fast and Furious Guns Flowed Back into Texas and New Mexico

“I was singled out for punishment even though all my sales to these people were reported as required by law, and the buyers were legally able to buy the firearms,” Garland said. “The ex-police chief, Angelo Vega, the ex-mayor, Eddie Espinoza, and Blas Gutierrez, the village trustee, and everyone else who bought from me, need to be interviewed. They all asked, on the record, ‘Why is Ian here, he had no conspiracy with us? We only used his store, as well as others, to buy from.’ The connection between Arizona’s Fast and Furious is clear, crystal clear, and this is in my pre-sentencing report.”

“I am Australian born, a U.S. citizen, and damn proud of it,” Garland said. “I am fighting because the government’s lawyers held back information that could have exonerated me. Plus, I got sentenced under the wrong guidelines, which gave me a harsher penalty than even the charges warranted.”

According to the El Paso Times, Garland is planning on sharing the information he has regarding the ties of Fast and Furious to El Paso and Nuarez with Mexican authorities.

I would highly recommend reading Diana Washington Valdez’s excellent, full report here.

The Obama administration has a lot of blood on its hands and Congress just does not seem willing to hold anyone in the administration accountable. Hundreds of Mexicans are dead, including a Mexican beauty queen and a Mexican police chief. At least two federal agents are dead. All of these people have died from gunshot wounds from weapons obtained via Operation Fast and Furious.

While much of the news of late on Freedom Outpost has centered on the Bundy Ranch Siege, numerous references have been made to the similarities of Ruby Ridge and Waco. Yet, the biggest missing agency in the Bundy saga is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE). They are, however, at the center of the Fast and Furious scandal. This illegal federal agency also has blood on its hands. It proceeded as if everything was OK, watched the guns walk across the border, and when the whistle was blown on the operation, sought to discredit the whistleblowers, even threatening them.

Eric Holder has been continuing in his capacity as Attorney General for nearly two years since being held in contempt of Congress. Obama continues to hold executive privilege over releasing documents subpoenaed by Congress regarding Fast and Furious. Now, these same guns are coming back across our borders.

I’m fully 100% pro-gun. I don’t think the federal government has any authority when it comes to restricting arms of any type from its people. However, we know what this administration’s goal is. Holder has told us it is to brainwash us against guns. Obama has told us he supports the Second Amendment with his lips, but his pen, policies and actions have demonstrated he is a domestic enemy of the Constitution. The only ones Obama supports having guns are America’s enemies, and he has happily provided them with arms (along with the approval of Congress), that will eventually be used against Americans.

Freedom Outpost

Remember the mountain of lies we have heard from the Obama administration, specifically Attorney General Eric Holder, regarding Operation Fast and Furious? The claim was that they were just doing as the Bush administration in Operation Wide Receiver. In both accounts, I personally don’t agree with the method, but at least to the Bush administration’s credit they did actually attempt to track the weapons. The Obama administration made no such effort. In fact, it has been claimed by a high-ranking Mexican drug cartel operative that the Obama administration was knowingly arming the Sinaloa Cartel against rival cartels with these weapons. As a result, the weapons have only been able to be recovered at murder scenes for the most part. Court documents have provided a little more detail on the conspiracy between the cartels and the Columbus, New Mexico conspirators in Operation Fast and Furious.

According to the El Paso Times:

Obama deliberately emboldening America’s enemies

Fox News

All Americans should be aware of some very disturbing events that speak to the state of terrorism, the strength of al Qaeda and our nation’s security. In light of the danger unfolding around us, we also need to question whether or not President Obama’s administration is serious about confronting what is clearly a gathering storm, or whether, in fact, his policies are encouraging those who wish to harm us.

One of the more shocking events illustrating the growing strength of al Qaeda is the release of a video this week showing what CNN reports as “the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years.” It’s what experts think is a recent gathering of the terrorist group’s leadership and more than 100 fighters in Yemen.

Charlie Daniels: Harry Reid Should Be In Jail For ‘Impersonating An American’

Weasel Zippers

An amazing lifelike replica of a slug would be accurate.

Via Examiner:

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called supporters of the Bundy ranch “domestic terrorists” and questioned their patriotism. Country music star Charlie Daniels responded the same day with a tweet saying Reid should be in jail for “impersonating an American.”

“Harry Reid you should be put in jail for impersonating an American,” he tweeted.

“Ouch!” the Twitchy staff wrote. A number of people agreed.

“AMEN Charlie!! I second that motion,” one person said.

“Please keep the light shined on this cockroach @SenatorReid & his punk kids too @CharlieDaniels -you’ve got a powerful torch to do it,” another person added.

Others suggested Obama also be thrown in jail. One Twitter user said that Reid would have been hung for his actions in the days of the wild west.

As we reported earlier today, Reid told the Las Vegas Review-Journal those who supported Bundy are “domestic terrorists” armed with fully automatic rifles. Additionally, he accused Bundy of not paying taxes and not recognizing the United States.

The Nevada Democrat also said he spoke with Attorney General Eric Holder, FBI leaders and Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie about the situation with the Bundy ranch. While speaking with reporters, he indicated that a task force is being set up, and hinted of further action.

Dick Morris: Dems Attempting to ‘Fix Presidential Elections’

Newsmax

Democrats are bypassing the Constitution as they try to replace the Electoral College with the popular vote as the means by which Americans elect presidents, says Dick Morris.

Supporters of the initiative says it levels the playing field by giving all voters the same amount of power, as opposed to grossly empowering voters in swing states, who enjoy the most attention of presidential candidates during the height of election season.

Morris says it’s a bold-faced attempt to neuter the GOP.

“If this thing passes, Republicans will never again win a presidential race and that’s why all the Democrats are lining up behind it,” Morris told John Bachman and J.D. Hayworth on “America’s Forum” on Newsmax TV.

The legislatures of 10 states and the District of Colombia have passed laws to pledge all of their electoral college representatives to select the winner of the national popular vote, and the measure has already passed one house in 10 other states. It takes 270 Electoral College votes to control the presidential selection. If the 10 states that have adopted the initiative in one house pass it into law, 242 electoral votes would be delegated to the winner of the national popular vote.

Morris, who penned a column on the topic for Newsmax earlier this week, said that Democrats are subverting the Constitutional amendment process with their state-to-state tactics. Constitutional amendments must be ratified in 38 states.

Morris said that if presidents are decided by popular vote, urban areas in traditionally Democratic states would gain new power while the doors to voter fraud would be kicked open.

“First of all, it would [spur] the urban Democratic machines in places like Chicago and D.C. and New York that don’t work too hard at getting out the vote because the states are blue anyway, but now if the popular vote matters, they’ll work like demons in getting out the vote including committing voter fraud,” he said.

“Secondly, right now, if things come down to one state like Florida in the Electoral College, you could look at voter fraud in Florida and probably stop it from ruining the election, but if the fraud could be committed in any precinct in the 50 states and it counts in the popular vote, it’s too large a problem ever to be able to either track or to solve.”

Morris was adamant that this empowerment of urban areas through the popular vote would unfairly benefit Democrats.

“So there’s a reason that of the 20 states that have either adopted this or one House has adopted it, 18 of them are blue states… it’s because this is a conspiracy by the Democratic party to fix presidential elections for the indefinite future,” he said.

86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers

Family Security Matters

Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work – in the private sector – and did it week after week after week.

These are the people who built America, and these are the people who can sustain it as a free country. The liberal media have not made them famous like the polar bear, but they are truly a threatened species.

Shakedown: Treasury now seizing tax refunds from adult children to pay parents’ decades-old Social Security debts

Hot Air

When I say “debts,” I don’t mean loans that the parents willingly sought from SSA. It would be bad enough to hold a kid responsible for that (since when are children responsible for their parents’ obligations?), but at least it would have been voluntarily incurred by mom/dad. The “debts” here are overpayments of Social Security benefits, the product of SSA’s own errors. The parents who received them might not have even realized they were getting money they weren’t supposed to have. And now, somehow, it’s junior’s problem.

But wait. It gets worse.

Obama Budget Lays Groundwork for Universal Gun Registry

Gun Owners of America

Last Friday, Attorney General Eric Holder testified before a House appropriations subcommittee on behalf of his department’s proposed budget for FY2015.

Apparently, Holder didn’t think anyone would read his written submission, because he all-but-admitted that Obama intends to implement a Universal Gun Registry by executive fiat.

He also asked Congress to help fund so-called “smart gun” technology, which would prevent a gun from firing unless the shooter is wearing an accompanying bracelet or ring.
