Constitutional Emergency

The Patriots News

Barack Obama has been President for two years and during that time we have seen unprecedented government expansion and invasive regulation of nearly every aspect of our lives: guns, land, commerce, healthcare, climate, banks, automobiles, energy and food. The US has not seen a diplomatic victory since Reagan and the collapse of the Soviet Union.  Is the President above the Law thinking he is somewhat sacrosanct? President Barack Obama’s decision not to fully enforce the Defense of Marriage law eventually could lead to a constitutional crisis, as he has directly violated his constitutional duties by arbitrarily suspending a law. If any other President especially a Republican took these Obama actions, there would be calls for Impeachment and there should be. Do not assume that a massive Demand Resignation movement cannot be successful. We are in a constitutional crisis moving to constitutional chaos. The Country and States are doomed unless it slashes its debt, balance budgets and radically revamps the size and cost of the Federal Government.

 

Attorney General Eric Holder said that the administration will not defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act in the courts, which has banned recognition of same-sex marriage for 15 years.  President Clinton signed the act into law in 1996. Obama’s decision to forego a legal defense of the law has caused a firestorm of anger from conservative groups. Obama must be taken to task for his decision and as Newt Gingrich points out that Obama is not a “one-person Supreme Court” and his decision sets a “very dangerous precedent” that must not be allowed to stand.

 

Second, Obama swore an oath on the Bible to become President that he would uphold the Constitution and enforce the laws of the United States. He is not a one-person Supreme Court. The idea that we now have the rule of Obama instead of the rule of law should frighten everybody.  The fact that the Progressives support the policy is allowing them to ignore the fact that this is a very unconstitutional act. It is absolutely critical for Obama to comply with Congress and the constitutional process.

 

The House Republicans must pass a resolution instructing the President to enforce the law and to obey his own constitutional oath, and they should say if he fails to do so that they will zero out [defund] the office of Attorney General and take other steps as necessary until the president agrees to do his job. His job is to enforce the rule of law and for us to start replacing the rule of law with the rule of Obama is a very dangerous precedent.  Clearly Obama and Holders actions are a dereliction of duty and a violation of constitutional oath and are something that cannot be allowed to stand. Have these individuals set out to create a constitutional crisis under the Saul Alinsky model.  I know they do not understand the implication that having a President personally suspend a law is clearly unconstitutional.  This is the uncomfortable question many Americans are asking after President Obama’s lawless decision to stop defending in federal court the law of the land on the institution of marriage. The Obama administration stated that it will no longer defend the federal law that bans the recognition of same-sex marriage because it considers the legislation unconstitutional, a sudden and rare reversal. Gay rights groups hailed the administration’s move, saying it will bolster their argument that laws that apply a different standard to people based on sexual orientation are unconstitutional. At least three challenges to the Defense of Marriage Act are working their way through the federal courts.

 

Obama’s decision is highly irregular and raises serious questions as to whether President Obama and Holder are upholding their oaths and following the Constitution’s demand to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed”.  Has the President now substituted himself for both the Congress and Supreme Court? Is this the end result of his dubious czar appointments: that he has, in effect, appointed himself “Constitution Czar?” In one move, Obama would override the Constitution and redefine marriage! In Clintonian fashion, Obama will continue to enforce a law he thinks has no constitutional basis.

 

Now let’s talk about the disgrace of Attorney General Eric Holder as a citizen and a member of the Obama progressive team. From day one, Judicial Watch and Stand Up America vigorously opposed the Holder nomination due to his corrupt record in the Clinton administration as a Deputy Attorney General under Janet Reno. It was apparent that Holder would be a disaster as Attorney General. One could not have predicted just how bad the situation would get on his watch. Just take a moment to review Holder’s record so far:

 

  * The top political appointees at Holder’s Justice Department were intimately involved in the decision to dismiss the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense, a “civil rights” group that brandished weapons, blocked a polling station and hurled racial insults at voters on Election Day 2008.


  * During the course of a year-long investigation of the Black Panther scandal, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights made startling accusations of racism at Holder’s Justice Department, a charge corroborated by Justice Attorney Christopher Coates.


  * While failing to protect the country from the scourge of rampant illegal immigration, the Holder Justice Department made matters worse by suing the State of Arizona for implementing a new get-tough illegal immigration law, S.B. 1070. Judicial Watch represents Arizona State Senate President Russell Pearce, the author of S.B. 1070, and the entire Arizona Legislature against this shameless legal assault by Holder’s Justice Department.


  * Judicial Watch recently received documents from the Department of Justice that show Holder’s DOJ worked hand-in-hand with the radical leftist ACLU in mounting their respective legal challenges


  * Just one week after suing Arizona, Holder’s Justice Department announced it would not prosecute sanctuary cities who flout federal immigration laws.


  * To this day, Eric Holder refuses to initiate any investigation of the corrupt enterprise known as ACORN, despite the organization’s long, sordid history of election fraud. In fact, while noting that ACORN had engaged in “questionable hiring and training practices,” Holder’s Justice Department actually closed down one ACORN investigation in March 2009, claiming ACORN broke no laws. Meanwhile, the organization, now splintered into corrupt cells across the country, continues to violate the law. Holder’s unwillingness to prosecute ACORN calls into question his impartiality, considering the fact that President Obama previously worked with the organization.


  * Holder’s record on national security is abysmal. Not only is Holder leading the Obama administration’s ridiculous on-again, off-again campaign to close Guantanamo Bay, but it was Attorney General Holder who made the disastrous initial decision to grant a civilian criminal trial to 9/11 terrorist mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) and other 9/11 terrorists in New York City. As CNN pointed out, Holder has still not told the American people of his final plan to hold 9/11 terrorists and how they will be brought to justice. I suspect, however, it will not be the justice they deserve. According to press reports, at least seven attorneys inside Holder’s Justice Department previously represented terrorist suspects in court.


  * And if all of this isn’t enough evidence of Holder’s corruption and incompetence, Fox News has its own expanded list of Holder’s greatest hits. This week’s latest assault on the rule of law lends further support to Judicial Watch’s effort to “Dump Holder.” America needs an Attorney General who will defend the constitutional order and not be a political, personal lawyer for a president who seems to know no constitutional restraints on his power.

 

You see, we do not need you in government other than to represent us, the People, and abide by and protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Declaration of Independence states: “To secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.

 

We will not permit the leaders in the White House and Halls of Congress to lead us down a road of Progressive Socialism and destruction of the Republic. The Patriotic Revolution that I forecasted well over a year ago is happening now.  We Constitutionalists face a battle that is unknown to our generations so we must be aggressive in our collective efforts to continue to turn back the tide. The Fate of the country is now in our hands and the plea from the majority of our citizens is to enforce the Constitution, severely limit the Federal Government and its out of control spending. There is a growing list of documented violations of the Constitution and their Oath of Office by current elected and appointed government officials

 

Lincoln issued this warning in his inaugural address, “Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government and form a new one.  This is a most valuable and sacred right – a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world.”  Being a representative republic, not a democracy, and “rising up” means other than revolution by use of arms. The people must “rise up” (Stand Up) from the grass roots across this great country as we think of the greater good of this and future generations. We are limited in the peaceful transfer of power…resignation, elections, and impeachment. That is why the Patriotic Revolution must take place to ensure survival of the Union.

 

The Articles of Confederation were replaced with the Constitution, which granted the federal government enough authority to cultivate, promote and secure the Blessings of Liberty. The balance of authority and individual liberty was understood. Power was confined to that which was enumerated in the Constitution with a certain and meaningful intent for check and balances.  We must make it a local imperative and movement….of the People…by the People… and For the People.

 

“We, the People” have had enough.  Enough is Enough. Obama, identifiable Members of Congress and political appointees must now resign so we can depart from a progressive socialist treasonous death march that has taken this country over the cliff of death.  We have watched them violate their sacred oath of office. “We, the People” cannot solely depend on the results of the elections.  It is now that many of these public servants (and you know who they are) must put the people and country interests above self-interest by resigning and stepping down immediately.  A civil uprising is still not out of the question as “pain” grips the country more each day. Hopefully, our future will reflect the citizens changed the tide in a peaceful way. This means raising your voice now to your neighbors, family, co-workers, and friends. We Must Be the Captains of our Souls.

Excellent article. I do believe he is right, as much as I do not like violence. But, we are there.
I hate the idea of a "Civil" uprising, but if it cleans the crud from public offices and the government... So be it.
I DO IS THE KEY WORDS, i do believe what was said to be true, it is time the battle cry  (LETS ROLL ).
Hey wait a minute, weren't we just fighting with the Unions and against Americans who belong to them. Now you want us to pivot 180 degrees and fight a new battle. Well we will have organize a group of Freedom loving Americans. I know the American worker will stand with us and help us win this important battle. NOT! Obama, the liberals, the progressives and the Republican Establishment have split this Country right down the middle. You all had better understand this, the Republican establishment hates us more then the Democrats. We are the only threat to their power base and they hate us for that. They are laughing their A**ES off at us, all of them. We fell hook line and sinker for this one. Over what, a Unions right to negotiate. Everybody says back Walker and Kasich. I ask any of you how many times you have seen either one of those guys marching from the Mall in DC up Pennsylvania Ave backing us. You never have and you never will. We were played like a fiddle and split down the middle like a ripe mellon. See you all in DC March 19th
You are 100% correct sir! You hit the bullseye dead center! Played like a fiddle!
The Unions are bankrupting the cities, counties and states. They make double what private sector workers make and there retirements are 3 times what private sector workers retirements are if they even have one. You lefties need to get the hell out of our country and go ovwerseas where the socialist movement is bankrupting Europe. The Damocrats are doing there illegal best to destroy the greatest Country on earth and the real americans are not going to allow it to happen
My, Mr. Patrino, I have no idea what you are talking about.  The battle is not with the Unions, although they probably should be abolished, not with the Democrats, nor the Republicans.  Each of these groups have their rights to what they think.  The battle is with those who hate this country, hate American's, and think that we should be governed as "cattle" being told what to do, how to do it, and when to do it.  The battle is with those corrupt individuals, WHETHER DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN,  that feel they have the right to make laws and rules that benefit them only.  The battle is with those who feel there are no morals or values to live by, but want to redefine those values and morals to suit their special needs.  The battle is with those who think this country is wrong and want to destroy it.  The American Government as established by the Founding Fathers is not a perfect government, but it has operated and functioned pretty darn well for over two hundred years - - -  until the forces of evil have gained power.  Our battle is to oust those who want to remake this country into something else.  Our battle is to bring God back into our lives and restore the rule of law and the power to the people.  Our battle is to somehow get the 49% of the population to be responsible and productive citizens.  As John Adams said:  "Our system of government is designed for a wise, tolerant, and religious people AND IS WHOLLY UNSUITED FOR THE GOVERNANCE OF ANY OTHER (KIND).

Thank you Gen Vallely for your words of encouragement.We all have known for years that it would come down to this and now we must move in unifity to remove those who have brought this great country to the brink of destruction. It is now or never patriots and i say NOW!!!!! OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE. The rally cry is out muster March 19th Washington D.C. 1600 Pennsylvania avenue. Bring your courage your anger your common sense your patience and your forgiveness, this day 03/19/2011 will be a historic day. We have the will we have the people we have our country that needs us.Pray patriots pray for our country and our people as we march against tyranny in our own country.

Well..........I placed a challenge on the front page of PFA..........Guardian-Eagles proposed an action to protect our memorials in DC on March 19th from the radical, anti-American likes of Code Pink, ANSWER, et al..................

If we are going to get the attention of the government then it will be because we have traveled to D.C. and will stay there until those that are destroying our nation will meet our demands of strict constitutional government, balanced budget, complete transparency in Congress, courts to rule via the constitution and established law.

Obama will produce his credentials IAW Article 2, Section 1 of the US Constitution for the US Supreme Court to review and verify or reject his qualification to the office of president.

The problem is simple......we have no consenus or national leadership to call us for the peaceful constitutional show-down...it appears we are waiting for Obama to declare the US Constitution null and void which, in my opinion, will cause blood running in the streets.......

We have plenty of Flag Officers, politicians of both parties, that are convinced of the constitutional abuses, crimes in government, that are destroying our nation.......but none will gather to commit to call America to peaceful revolution...

I will be in DC on March 19.......for one day or for ???????????????

 

Colonel Harry Riley,

Thank you for your honorable service to our country in the U.S. Army.

I'll be working the southern border during your DC rally time frame and will not participate in the rally. However, I feel I owe you and your supporters of this rally my own personal views of your "as written" "OBAMA………….STEP DOWN" ... rally.

 

Please see my post on the PFA website titled ...

Proposed "OBAMA………….STEP DOWN" ... "We The People" Reclaiming the Republic RALLY in Washington DC.

Everyone,

I'm putting this in lots of places because it connects with all these discussions.

Must watch in entirety - please respond. The last 5 minutes is important.

I wish you a great weekend.  Don’t watch these before you go to sleep my friends!!

Paul Valley is a class act and tells it accurately.

 

Nevertheless, it rankles me every time I read "Obama is failing at...you name it..."

 

HE'S NOT FAILING !!!  HE'S DOING EXACTLY WHAT HE PLANNED TO DO - DESTROY AND OVERTHROW THE USA AND REPLACE IT WITH A "NEW WORLD ORDER"!!!  (And Sharia, too.)

 

He must be stopped NOW. NOT in 2012. By then the damage will be irreversible.

 

Tsun Tsu said you can win before the battle starts by "Knowing your enemy." (Simple version)

 

Learn everything you can about the players and get in all friends, and maybe not so friends, faces and warn them.

 

This is about LIFE AND DEATH. It cannot get more serious.
