Rule of law: Endangered species ~ By Henry Lamb

Henry brings up a subject that just makes me want to scream: Selective enforcement. I know, I know... it happens all of the time. The police do it occasionally  when enforcing traffic laws. Local and federal prosecuting attorneys do it, too, when they select the cases they will prosecute. It happens, sometimes for good reasons, and sometimes not so good. However, it can be downright scary when it comes to Obama's type of selective enforcement in order to "transform America."

As Henry points out, selective enforcement is just one of the ways that Obama is flagrantly disregarding the rule of law. My feeling, though, is that it can be, and is, just as dangerous as any of the ways that Obama flaunts the rule of law. When it comes to selective enforcement as a way to influence future elections, it is extremely dangerous. Check out the video below, where John Fund explains how selective enforcement of election laws could make it much easier for Obama to steal an election. Just sayin'...

More voter fraud that the DOJ won't enforce (for political reasons)
I am not sure which is really worse: The refusal to prosecute the voter intimidation case out of Philadelphia, or this. Either way, either those of us that vote conservative could be turned away from the polls, or many fraudulent voters for the Democrats will show up to vote. Either way, nothing the DOJ is doing is promoting an election that would even pass in banana republics! It's called "rigging the election!" The lack of action by the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ is NO accident. It's called selective enforcement.

Obama's defeat must begin in November by unseating the majority that now runs Congress. Then, perhaps, Congress can begin to repeal some of Obama's agenda, or at the very least refuse to provide funds needed for implementation. Immediately after the November election, every person who loves America – as the founders created it – needs to begin a private campaign to remove the last of the Marxist-leaning people who now dominate the federal government.

Federal law currently prohibits the use of marijuana. California spit in the face of the feds and enacted a law that makes "medical" marijuana available. Now, a ballot initiative in the November election would remove the "medical" requirement and allow any adult to grow and use marijuana at will in the Golden State.

The Obama administration has indicated that it will not waste Department of Justice resources by trying to challenge California's rejection of federal drug laws.

The Obama administration, however, is wasting Department of Justice resources by challenging Arizona's law that affirms the federal immigration law and authorizes police officers to ask for proof of citizenship from suspects who have been detained for infringement of any law.

The Obama administration is flatly failing to enforce federal law in both cases. It has deliberately chosen not to enforce the federal drug laws in California, and it has deliberately chosen not to enforce the immigration law in Arizona (and other border states), even though the Constitution requires the president "take care to see that the laws be faithfully executed." Why is he planning to challenge Arizona's immigration law in court, while ignoring California's marijuana law?

It's called selective enforcement.

In a nation based on the rule of law, the law is supposed to apply to every person equally, regardless of race, sex, financial condition, or political affiliation. Obama and his administration have made a mockery of this concept.

The Department of Justice chose not to prosecute the Black Panthers who stood in front of a Pennsylvania polling place brandishing nightsticks. Do you think the Department of Justice would take the same action against two white dudes dressed in camouflage outfits brandishing nightsticks in front of a polling place?

These are fairly small examples of selective enforcement, but they do shine a spotlight on this administration's disregard for their responsibility to uphold and enforce the law – and apply it equally to all people.

Far more important are the examples of Obama's complete and utter disregard for limitations of power placed on the federal government by the U.S. Constitution. There was not the least bit of hesitation before Obama ordered the chairman of General Motors to step down, to be replaced by a puppet of Obama's choosing. There was not the least bit of hesitation before Obama's people chose the auto dealers who would be put out of business. It makes no difference at all to Obama that the Constitution does not give the president the authority to take these actions. Incidentally, it was purely coincidental that the majority of auto dealers put out of business had supported Republican candidates. Yeah, that's their story, and they are sticking to it.

This propensity to act despite the law to achieve objectives Obama wants to achieve, makes Barack Hussein Obama the most dangerous president the country has ever known. He has said he fully intended to fundamentally transform the United States of America.

He has forced through Congress his brand of universal health care, a precursor to complete socialized medicine. There is no way private insurance companies can continue to operate under the requirements placed upon them by the health-care legislation. Suppose the auto industry were told that they had to insure auto owners after an accident – and repair the automobile – but could not charge a penny more than they charged people who had no accident. No private company can stay in business paying out more than they take in. The health-care law forces insurance companies into this position.

Through his appointments and support of legislation to give the president emergency control of the Internet, Obama has exposed his disregard for the First Amendment. This administration is actively seeking ways to control the free flow of information, especially from critics and those who oppose the Obama agenda.
