As everyone knows by now, Federal District Judge Vinson ruled Obama’s health care legislation unconstitutional. In his 78 page ruling the judge issued a summary judgment against the administration and ordered it to cease and desist, any and all plans to implement any portion of the law.To which Obama’s regime told the states;
By stating that his administration will continue implementing the legislation, Obama is in direct violation of the ruling. Thus he is in contempt of court, and should be impeached. Unfortunately, just as the MSM ignored the fact that Bill Clinton was found in contempt of court by Judge Susan Webber Wright, they will also ignore the facts in this case by not informing Americans that Obama has violated his oath of office by doing the same thing. Remember, Bill Clinton lost his license to practice law because he was found to be in contempt of court. Imagine if that were Reagan or Bush? Do you reality think the MSM would be silent?
Today the administration is even trying to say that the judge did not impose any injunction against the implementation of the law by saying,
The decision issued on Monday is one district court decision, and we believe it to be very wrong. The Department of Justice has made clear that it is reviewing all of its options in responding to this case, as it does in all cases.
“Implementation will continue.”
Read again what the Judge wrote, because he specifically says that this ruiing is an injunction against implementing the unconstitutional law.
The last issue to be resolved is the plaintiffs’ request for injunctive relief enjoining implementation of the Act, which can be disposed of very quickly. Injunctive relief is an “extraordinary” [Weinberger v. Romero-Barcelo, 456 U.S. 305, 312, 102 S. Ct. 1798, 72 L. Ed. 2d 91 (1982)], and “drastic” remedy [Aaron v. S.E.C., 446 U.S. 680, 703, 100 S. Ct. 1945, 64 L. Ed. 2d 611 (1980) (Burger, J., concurring)]. It is even more so when the party to be enjoined is the federal government, for there is a long-standing presumption “that officials of the Executive Branch will adhere to the law as declared by the court. As a result,the declaratory judgment is the functional equivalent of an injunction.” See Comm. on Judiciary of U.S. House of Representatives v. Miers, 542 F.3d 909, 911 (D.C. Cir. 2008); accord Sanchez-Espinoza v. Reagan, 770 F.2d 202, 208 n.8 (D.C. Cir. 1985) (“declaratory judgment is, in a context such as this where federal officers are defendants, the practical equivalent of specific relief such as an injunction . . since it must be presumed that federal officers will adhere to the law as declared by the court“
So regardless of what the judge wrote, Obama says that because he disagrees with the judge he is ignoring it. Today, I have come to the conclusion that “We The People” should ignore any and all rulings from the courts we disagree with. Especially those of us in California who are continually told by either our State Supreme Court or the 9th Circuit Court that the ballot initiatives we overwhelmingly voted for are unconstitutional. Obama is telling us he that is a dictator like Castro, Chavez, and yes Stalin, Hitler, and Mao by ignoring the federal judges ruling. He cares not a wit about the powers given by the constitution to the Judiciary to be a check and balance against the dictatorial desires of Presidents over America. Obama simply does not believe in the America our founding fathers envisioned her to be. Like America’s enemies, past and present, Obama would like to see America destroyed, and where they failed he may very well succeed.
This is the second time Obama is in direct violation of a federal court ruling. Last year after U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman ruled against Obama’s off shore drilling moratorium, Obama blatantly ignored the ruling and ordered his Department of the Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar, to keep the moratorium in place. American’s can thank Obama for the high prices of fuel we have because he is still ignoring that court ruling. So the man who would be Dictator is now in contempt of another federal court ruling, because he disagrees with the judges ruling. Imagine what the MSM would have done if Nixon had ignored the Court’s order that he had to release the tape recordings he had of conversations in his office because they were crucial to the Watergate hearings in Congress. Nixon released the tapes on July 30, and Congressional Democrats made them public on Aug. 5 1974. Three days later Nixon resigned from office, but what if he ignored the order as Obama is?
Obama and the Democrats prove their ignorance of the constitution by claiming that because other judges agree with him he does not have to listen to Judge Vinson’s ruling. However, this doesn’t matter. It takes only one Federal Judge to rule on one particular case finding a law unconstitutional to put a stop to that law. As Rush Limbaugh said today, this is coming real close to creating a constitutional crisis.
Rush Limbaugh was mentioning that there are some in the MSM who are asking the same question I and others are asking. Unfortunately they are few and very far between. It’s almost as if the media agrees to have an article written that questions what Obama does just so they can come along later and claim they covered it. This is what Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show today:
We have a federal judge who has ruled a major piece of legislation unconstitutional, and the regime is basically saying, “Ah, well, it’s gonna go to Supreme Court anyway, so to hell with it.” But he has voided it. It is not the law of the land and if they continue implementing it as though it is, they are in contempt. They’re basically looking at the Constitution and winking at it or spitting on it or turning their backs on it, constitutional crisis.
A story I printed out from CNBC.com. “Is The Obama Administration Throwing Us Into a Constitutional Crisis Over Health Care?” It’s by John Carney, the senior editor at CNBC.com. “Are we experiencing a quiet constitutional crisis?”
And I’ll add another question. Not only are we experiencing a quiet constitutional crisis, is it being done with thoughtful malice? Do you think the Democrats and Obama didn’t know that this was unconstitutional? They knew they were gonna have to argue this and they prepared arguments. They knew the commerce clause did not permit this. They did it anyway. John Carney writes’
which I suggested yesterday that one of the attorney generals of the 26 states suing the regime do.
“Pretending that the ruling doesn’t change anything when it unequivocally does, would be both a petulant and extra-legal approach to governance.
I am paraphrasing him, but Bill Wilson of the Libertarian think tank, “Americans for Limited Government“, wrote that this could very well all come down to a constitutional showdown because state after state is in the process of telling the administration to take a hike. So with the administration trying to force the states to implement the unconstitutional law, and the state’s refusing to submit to federal regulations implementing it, our nation is looking at a potentially historic fight not only between branches of government but between the states and the federal government.
Ultimately, the rule of law must prevail, and unless and until Judge Vinson’s decision is overturned by a higher court, the federal government must follow it. Failure to do so would unnecessarily throw our nation into its worse constitutional crisis since the Nixon impeachment. It is up to Obama to step down from his dictatorial pedestal and either appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court, or follow the ruling and stop his implementation off his unconstitutional health-care law.
Finally, we need more than just one member of the MSM to report the truth and inform the public of this crisis, before we wake up one day with Obama’s Jackbooted thugs telling us to get in line and shut up because our constitution is valid no more by decree of the oppressive and authoritarian dictator. Unlike Abraham Lincoln, who set free millions of slaves so that one day a black man could become President, Obama is making sure that many generations to come will be enslaved in perpetuity.
