Getting elected to a “political office” in the 21st Century isn’t about advocating for the people who elected you, it’s about advocating for those that slip you the most (cash) under the table.
Barack Obama pushed Obamacare through Congress with the “promise” (APO) “An Obama Promise” that it would help 30 million uninsured Americans and he assured America that it wouldn’t hurt anyone else.
Five years later, the government intrusion has disrupted the coverage of the more than 300 million Americans who were content with their insurance, and it is (summarily) destroying America’s economy.
According to Webster: “sum·ma·ry,” (in context) Performed speedily and without ceremony.
Holder: I Have ‘A Vast Amount’ of Discretion in Enforcing the Law…
House Republicans Tuesday blasted Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department for virtually ignoring the law in cases including criminal sentencing and the legalization of marijuana. Holder, testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, declared both the president and attorney general have “a vast amount” of discretion in prosecuting laws on the books, The Hill reports.
Question: Does that mean that sense Barack Obama and Eric Holder both derive there authority from (the people), that (the people) now have the “option” to obey or disregard laws that we approve of, ..or don’t approve of?
“But that discretion has to be used in an appropriate way so that your acting consistent with the aims of the statute but at the same time making sure that you are acting in a way that is consistent with our values, consistent with the Constitution and protecting the American people,” he said.
The U.S. Constitution is the ultimate law in America, as all laws in America must be constitutional. Which of course, to anyone who understands the difference between the right foot and their left foot and knows how to tie their shoes, can only conclude that both Eric holder and Barack Obama don’t just disregard our Constitution occasionally, (in my opinion) they pretty much disregard it every minute of every day.
But committee chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., summarily rejected Eric Holder’s reasoning by saying; “selective non-enforcement” is tantamount to ignoring the law.
According to Webster: “tan·ta·mount,” Equivalent in effect or value.
Bob Goodlatte – (R) Virginia sixth district.
“The Justice Department’s decision not to enforce the Controlled Substances Act in states whose laws violate federal law is not a valid exercise of prosecutorial discretion, but a formal department-wide policy of selective non-enforcement of an Act of Congress,” Goodlatte said.
Under Holder’s “Smart on Crime” initiative, the Justice Department has changed policies involving (mandatory minimum sentences) for certain nonviolent, low-level drug crimes.
“This commonsense change will ensure that the toughest penalties are reserved for the most dangerous or violent drug traffickers,” Holder explained.
(U.S. Border Patrol agent – Brian Terry).
Yeah, like the ultra-violent Mexican Cartels that Holder and his crew sell guns to so that the Cartel’s (drug runners) can defend themselves against American border control agents.
Goodlatte countered, however, that the changes put federal prosecutors at odds with the law. “The attorney general’s directive, along with contradicting an act of Congress, puts his own front-line prosecutors in the unenviable position of either defying their boss or violating their oath of candor to the court,” he said.
The Hill noted committee Democrats are in favor of the changes, with Michigan Democratic Rep. John Conyers, the panel’s top Democrat, pointing out almost half of all federal inmates are serving time for drug offenses.
Holder also came under fire from Republicans for the Obama administration’s much-debated decision to delay the Obamacare “employer mandate,” getting into a “brief, and to the point” (virulent) exchange with Ohio Republican Rep. Steve Chabot, who maintained the executive branch had no authority to delay the mandate.
“When Congress puts effective dates in laws, do we need to further state that the effective date cannot be waived or modified by the executive branch, or is the president required to follow the law, and also follow the dates set by Congress?” Chabot asked.
“The president has the duty, obviously, to follow the law,” Holder responded, but added” it would depend on the statute” and statutory interpretation of the law.
According to Webster: “stat·u·to·ry,” Enacted, regulated, or authorized by statute.
According to Webster: “in·ter·pre·ta·tion,” The act or process of interpreting; a conceptualization.
In the simplest terms possible, (if it’s a liberal idea), it’s great! (if it makes sense, or, it’s a conservative thought), forget it.
Holder said the Department of Justice provided legal analysis to the administration regarding the delay, but that his agency doesn’t discuss those arguments publicly.
Attorney General Eric Holder sees a day where gun owners wear bracelets that communicate with the gun, allowing only the gun owner to use the weapon.
(In my opinion), these are the “bracelets” Holder has in mind for gun owners.
Holder told a House appropriations committee that the Department of Justice has spoken with technology experts who are exploring ways to restrict the use of guns to their legal owners, the Washington Free Beacon reports.
So what’s next? Will Holder and Obama mandate that only the (named owner) on an automobile registration is allowed to drive that particular car?
And when that happens, if you have a child or two after you purchase a home, where will he or she live, ..as their names will not be on the purchase deed.
Personally, I still maintain that if there is anyone so intent on living under communism, China or Russia are available for the price of a ticket. After all, “America is a free country” and here, you have that option.
Holder reportedly said Friday. “It’s those kinds of things that I think we want to try to explore so that we can make sure that people have the ability to enjoy their Second Amendment rights, but at the same time decreasing the misuse of weapons that lead to the kinds of things that we see on a daily basis.”
Fox News reports the Justice Department has requested $382.1 million in increased spending for gun safety for the 2014-2015 fiscal year. That would include $2 million for gun safety technology grants.
Excuse me, I may be out of line here for asking, but I would like to know what Eric holder has ear marked the other $380.1 million?
Question: Do you think he wants the money to “re-stock” his inventory of assault rifles to sell to Mexican drug cartels?
(this “Justice Department’s” side line).
Holder: I Won’t Defend Discriminatory Laws
Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday (25, Feb. 2014) that state attorneys general who believe that laws in their states banning same-sex marriage are discriminatory are not obligated to defend them.
For an example, he cited the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education case that led to public school integration.
In an interview with The New York Times; Holder said; …
“If I were the attorney general in Kansas in 1953, I would not have defended a Kansas statute that put in place, (separate-but-equal), facilities,” …
In truth, (at least the truth in my opinion), having witnessed Eric Holder’s “evasive behavior and reluctance” to reply in front of Congress on several occasions, ..had Holder lived in Kansas in 1953 and was faced with a threat, ..like his buddy Berry, little Eric would’ve been hiding under a rock.
Holder said an attorney general should apply the highest level of scrutiny before reaching a decision on whether to defend laws that touch on core constitutional issues like equal protection.
Question: How much (scrutiny) do you imagine Eric Holder devoted to the consequences before selling assault rifles to Mexican drug Cartels?
According to Webster: “scru·ti·ny,” (in context) Meticulous observation; prudent examination and consideration.
Operation fast and furious, and/or, (gun running) into Mexico not only ignored American laws, it disregarded Mexican laws as well.
Holder said that a decision should never be political or based on policy objectives.
In Holder’s words to the Times on Monday; “Engaging in that process and making that determination is something that is appropriate for an attorney general to do,”
Holder was scheduled to address the winter meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General on Tuesday.
Democratic attorneys general from five states — Virginia, Pennsylvania, California, Illinois and Nevada, have declined to defend same-sex marriage bans against lawsuits filed by gay couples.
New Mexico’s attorney general, also a Democrat, has challenged longstanding legal interpretations that said such unions were impermissible there.
Republicans have criticized the view that attorneys general can choose (not to defend) state laws.
Question: What do you think Democratic attorney general’s believe their jobs to be?
It’s been a long time since I went to school, however when I attended, both the history and political science books that I read stated that America was a Democratic Republic, a form of government where the power of the government is derived from the people.
The United States of America is the federal government of the republic of fifty states that constitute the United States, as well as one capital district, and several other territories.
The federal government is composed of (three) distinct branches: the legislative, the executive and the judicial, whose powers are vested by the U.S. Constitution in the Congress, the President, and the federal courts, including the Supreme Court, respectively.
The powers and duties of these branches are further defined by acts of Congress, including the creation of executive departments and courts secondary to the Supreme Court.
The full name of “our” republic is “The United States of America”. No other name appears in the Constitution, and this is the name that appears on money, in treaties, and in legal cases to which it is a party (e.g., “whoever” v. United States).
Question: Why did our founding fathers decide upon three branches of government instead of two or four?
Quite simple actually; for the same reason that a stool has three legs – each needs the other to remain stable.
The American government according to our Constitution is made up of three branches, …
The executive branch…
In simple terms; the president is charged with the duty and responsibility of providing security for the nation.
Not a “good time” for himself and Michelle.
The legislate of branch…
In simple terms; the Congress is charged with the duty and responsibility of legislating policies that benefit the nation.
Not themselves – or Private Corporations.
And the judicial branch…
In simple terms; the Supreme Court is charged with the duty and responsibility of following what is constitutional and what is not.
Not making it up as they go.
The Times reported that Eric Holder was careful not to encourage state attorneys general to disavow their own laws.
Holder himself refused to defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act in 2011, which helped lead to last year’s Supreme Court decision (striking down) a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act that (denied gay married couples) the federal benefits and privileges enjoyed by heterosexual couples.
According to Steve Rothaus, of (gsfla), “Gay South Florida” a “CMI” Election Poll shows: 90% of Gays and Lesbians Voted for Barack Obama and Helped him win a close election.
Which of course, once again validates that…
The attorney general, i.e., (Eric holder), has been outspoken on issues that (he sees) as highlighting (flaws) in the criminal justice system that have (a disparate impact) on “minorities.”
According to Webster: “big·ot,” One who is strongly partial to one’s own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.
Not that I am personally opposed to “bigotry,” as bigotry by the nature of man, is a part of humanity, – and who doesn’t support nature, man, and humanity?
However, according to the Constitution, man, his nature, and humanity are required to adapt to the law, ..not the other way around.
Earlier this month he called on 11 states to restore voting rights to ex-felons, arguing that laws that permanently disenfranchise people who are no longer under federal or state supervision should be reconsidered.
Question: Can you think of a more sleazy way for the Liberal platform to add 1 million grateful, and/or, (indebted) voters to their roster?
Holder has urged the nation’s schools to abandon disciplinary policies that send students to court instead of the principal’s office, citing cases in which black students were disciplined more harshly and more frequently than whites.
Question: Could it be that the (black students) that Attorney Gen. Holder is referring to are (empower) by the incorrigible (behavior), lies and unprecedented corruption of our current “Commander-in-Chief” believe they are entitled to ignore the rules because he does?
In addition, he has instructed federal prosecutors to stop charging many nonviolent drug defendants with offenses that carry mandatory minimum sentences, saying that long mandatory terms have flooded the nation’s prisons with low-level drug offenders and diverted money away from crime fighting.
Question: how many of you reading my blather today believe that selling assault rifles to Mexican drug cartels that unequivocally caused the death of border control agent Brian Terry is in any way shape or form, – fighting crime?
Admittedly, I am not a police officer at any level, however I stayed at a “Holiday Inn” last night, ..so I’m up to speed on the fact that one cannot enforce the law, – if one does not respect the law.
According to Webster: “re·spect,” To show deferential regard for; (esteem).
According to Webster: “es·teem,” (in context), n. To prize.
A final note…
..from the “Rosy Cheeked Lad” across the street,
..to his Grandmother,
..disrespect in America,
..by liberals in an,
Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back tomorrow
