Obama Demands Court Uphold His “Right” To Ignore Constitution

obama speech 7 SC Obama demands court uphold his “Right” to ignore Constitution

Obama’s Department of Justice is demanding a federal judge dismiss the injunction with which she sought to uphold the constitutional rights of the American people.

On May 16th, federal judge Kathleen Forrest granted a preliminary injunction to plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against Barack Obama and the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), striking down those sections of the Act that provide the president the power to indefinitely detain American citizens without benefit of their 5th and 6th Amendment rights.

Under the terms of the Act, Obama had been given exclusive authority to direct members of the US military to arrest and imprison anyone he believed to have “substantially supported” al Qaeda, the Taliban, or “associated forces.” When pressed by plaintiff’s attorneys about the practical extent of this authority, government lawyers admitted “…the NDAA does give the president the power to lock up people like journalist Chris Hedges and peaceful activists,” admitting that “…even war correspondents could be locked up indefinitely under the NDAA.”

And when asked by the judge what it meant to be an “associated force”, Obama’s lawyers “…claimed the right to refrain from offering any clear definition of [the] term, or clear boundaries of the president’s power under [the] law.” In short, it is the federal government’s scheme that the Act remain so vague that a corrupt and power-hungry Administration may imprison virtually anyone it considers a threat to its pursuit of absolute power.

On July 25th, Administration lawyers filed papers demanding Judge Forrest’s preliminary injunction NOT be made permanent. In the filing, Obama made it clear his Administration would ignore the court and its injunction regardless of what the judge may decide, claiming incorrectly that “…[the] injunction would have ‘nil’ effect, for the government would continue to possess the identical detention authority under the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force…” Of course, that is a lie, as the AUMF applies only to known members of al Qaeda or the Taliban.

Most indicative of the Obama Administration’s contempt for Judge Forrest, the law, and the American people was government attorney Benjamin Torrance’s claim that it was “the Obama Administration’s position” NDAA detention provisions do not apply to American citizens living in the US. Judge Forrest responded by quoting Chief Justice Roberts, who wrote in a 2010 case that the Supreme Court “…would not uphold an unconstitutional statute merely because the government promised to use it reasonably.” So much for Judge Forrest’s faith in the validity and value of Obama’s signing statement promise to not employ his Section 1021 authority to indefinitely detain the American public!

Yet incredibly, when pressed on the issue, this Obama mouthpiece suggested to Forrest that concerns about the president’s detention powers were excessive as American citizens would, after all, have the ability to file  a writ of habeas corpus should they be illegally or improperly jailed! “How long does [such a] petition take,” asked Forrest? When Torrance refused to answer, the Judge continued, “Several years, right”?

So not only did Obama’s attorney lie about his Marxist boss’s corrupt intentions; he actually claimed that the abuse of American citizens was somehow acceptable because those unconstitutionally imprisoned might ask that the charges against them be produced after ONLY a few years behind bars!

Judge Forrest will soon decide whether to make the injunction permanent. Every citizen must watch very carefully for that ruling, as the “mainstream” media has ignored the story completely. We must all hope the Judge will not be intimidated by this corrupt Regime as so many of her colleagues have been before her.

  1. Just what you would expect any "dictator" to say!

  2. VirgoVince says:

    What the hell difference does it make, he's already broken every law on the books, including murder, so he's gonna do what he wants to do!!!! WHY is he still breathing????

  3. OBarry needs to be introduced to an industrial accident of sorts, with all due respects….lol

    • VirgoVince says:

      Like maybe he could fall into a tree chipper?? Or maybe an acid vat, or how about buried in a corn silo, maybe he'll become ethanol or hog slop!!!! LOL Couldn't happen to a better SOB POS!!!!

  4. Obama continues to show himself ever more dangerous, as he seizes ever more power that is outside his constitutional authority. I hope the Judicial Branch knows that The People uphold their authority under the constitution to defend against executive overreaches such as this one. I believe Obama will answer to The Almighty for his misdeeds, but I sincerely hope he will be held accountable long before that.

    • It is the Right and Obligation Of Patriots to. Take Charge Of Said Office… I've read that in either the constitution or Bill Of Rights… Obama has over Reached His Authority to Many Times To Count… so Military Should Step In… nOW!!!

    • philip mckee says:

      I would like to see him (Obozo) held accountable, see him led away shackled and cuffed to be tried, convicted and hanged by the neck until dead. I also know a lot of people that would like to see this..

  5. This is actually an affront to the judiciary. Perhaps "Loser pays" on such abuses may be in order. The injunction being granted in the first place was jusicial error. The first error was when the judiciary refused even listening to the arguments, or even view some of the evidence surrounding the; "Natural Born Citizen" with a British Subject father, currently sitting in the oval office. I realize judges sit a lot, but its time for them to get off the bench. They do not represent the U.S. Constitution that I swore an oath to.

  6. Guess who gave Obama the opportunity to sign this anti-American Bill? Does House and Senate ring a bell?
    All idiots.

    • Throw them all out. Especially Boehner. He should be demanding Obama be impeached or removed and he has done absolutely nothing.

      • philip mckee says:

        Boehner has got to go,he is a do nothing just a lot of talk and cave. Need someone to stand for truth and justtice must be done.

  7. When this passed as law (as we knew and have confirmed that Obama constructed the wording), the first thing Obama said about it was that he would never use the "power" to detain Americans. So why is he now so anxious to have the injunction dismissed? This is a much too dangerous (illegal alien) individual to have in the whitehouse. He is NOT an American.

  8. Obama MUST be Impeached, prosecuted and EXECUTED!!!

  9. tom berquist says:

    I don't believe obama understands just how much opposition and what type he and his commies will be on the receiving end of if they keep pushing We The People into a corner.

    • Disgusted says:

      Never a truer word spoken, or written, Tom Berquist. Maybe that famous line by the Japanese commander come into play here……”I fear we have awakened a sleeping giant”! Just maybe this crowd of criminals have awakened the American People, Patriots, and if they are looking for a fight, we will give them far more than they bargin on, you think so too? I rather think it may be that they have pushed us about as far as we are willing to go, into a corner, and we will come out fighting because we have no other choice. What else can we do? Submit? I DONT THINK SO! I refuse to live in a filthy, ragheaded, camel humping, toothless old man run country, they smell bad…………….in every way possible, mu SLIMES smell very badly………………and we have one of those filthy things sitting in our Oval Office, and it smells like pure S#%@(ITE!

  10. Illegal alien, you have NO AUTHORITY to demand ANYTHING in or from the United States Of America, ESPECIALLY from WE, THE PEOPLE. If you try to do so, you will be taken from the White House, and sent, by Marine guard, to Guantanamo Bay Cuba, and have a LOOOONG TIME to reflect upon your life, until you pass away, regretting the facts which surround your false (American) birth certificate, your total ignorance of American law, and your systematic dismanteling of our (WE, THE PEOPLE) United States Of America.

    • I think he is having one of his Muslim friends he has let in the White House determine what he wants to pass as law… He has gone Stark Crazy… I Hate Him With A Passion I Did Not Know Lurked In Me…
      Man Oh Man I Hate Him… but, he feeds off this… So guess we shouldn't Allow him and minions to see
      Blogs saying this… I believe they Feed Off It… SO!!! How Much More America…???

  11. SOMETHING MUST BE DONE and SOOOOOOON, Befrore this country falls!! this man is ………Man I hate him!!!

  12. its a sad day , that now our judges are as courupt as the administration we cant stand…what is going on here with these sick people. who is putting them in? you?

  13. KENNETH DUNN says:

    for not upholding the constutition must be hanged by the neck till dead

  14. This clown needs to be taken out of power and jailed for being a forger and a fraud. He is obsessed with power and he is using the power he now has inappropriately. Since there is so much evidence to support the fact that Obama is not even a citizen of this country enough doubt exsists to demand a special congressional investigation take place. Obama should not be allowed to run for another term. Im sick of this clown!

  15. ATTENTION: All Americans are nothing but a bunch of Whimps!!! Think about it for a minute. Day after day after day after day, Obammy boy and his circle of czars and friends break most of the laws that you and me are required to uphold. Nothing happens! It don't matter if your a Republican or a Democrat, all that he does or doesn't do is wrong, illegal, corrupt, anti-America, etc etc. Yet NOTHING is done to stop this madness.What is wrong with this picture folks? Everything is wrong… we are a bunch of whimps to sit and watch these illegal acts play out each day while sit there watching it happen and ask why nothing is done? Read the Bill of Rights and The Constitution. We all have the right and the legal authority to defend our country from corrput officials and gov't and we are able to take back our country from tyranical politicans. Yet we and those we put into office do NOTHING! We are to blame for letting things get this far out of control… we should all be ashamed.

    • What do you suggest, I like military intervention. My thought is because we have never before seen this kind of disregard for our Constituttion and laws, the blatant disregard of our court system, etc., that those at should be doing something don't know what to do. Issa is doing all he can thru legal means to Holder…but its too time consuming. The Commies in the White House know nothing will happen to them….this is a first for blatant tyranny, there has never been blatant tyranny like this and nobody knows WHAT to do! and then you have a tyranny run press….

      We need another brave Military Soldier (like terry lakin) to rally our branches of the service and physically remove this dictator and his minions from the WH and imprison them awaiting trial for treason.

    • philip mckee says:

      Ashamed indeed we should be. We The People need help what with all the punks get welfare don;t want anything to happen to Obummer. Military sounds good to me, get one brave General to go to our white house and relleve him of his duties. Must take backup and arrest all those that are in on the takeover.

  16. It cannot be enough that Impeachment, only occur. The amount of damage to All Americans, including that huge constituent base created to support a "regime" such as this, and any American that intentionally aided this march of destruction to our Constitution is a Change that informed citizens will not allow. It is at this point in time; they will all answer for all of their crimes against humanity.

    It is my hope and prayer, that the elected leaders' voted into the House and Senate have only provided the opportunity for President Barack Obama and aides, enough rope to be revealed completely in their asperities against the United States of America.

    • Disgusted says:

      Anyone who still supports this evil regime is a traitor. Once is a mistake, a dreadful mistake, but when the proof is shown clearly to be what it has been shown to be, then this time around, to still support this evil minded, filthy mu SLIME is nothing less than High Treason, and High Crimes against your fellow Americans also. To knowingly support such evil is not IGNORANCE, it is not even STUPIDITY, it is giving AID and SUPPORT and ASSISTANCE TO THE DESTRUCTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!! Therefore, anyone who supports this scum in office is also as guilty as those who have done so for the last four years, and must stand before a jury of their Peers, the American Patriots who did in no way, support such evil, and be tried, found guilty of the same Treason as their “leader” and punished accordingly. I can name a few, only a few who have been very vocal and persistant in their support of this foul creature, Tamara Holder, Juan Williams, Harry Reid, John “Crybaby Boner” Nancy “Botox” Piglousy, and others. They have been so publicly supportive that it is no secret that they too, wish for the downfall of our country. Boner was supposed to DO HIS JOB and did not do so, therefore, he has SUPPORTED this evil. He is a Traitor to the Tea Party, and to the people who elected him. This makes him complicit in the crimes commited against the United States of America and Her People. I feel personally, that this makes him even more guilty of Treason than even the rest, he has been derilict in his Duty to We, the People. We, The People, DEMAND that OUR RIGHTS BE UPHELD AND THAT THESE CRIMINALS WHO HAVE CAUSED THE PAIN AND STRESS TO OUR NATION AND OUR FREEDOMS BE PUNISHED ACCORDING TO THE LAW THAT SAYS “HIGH TREASON” IS PUNISHABLE BY HANGING BY THE NECK UNTIL DEAD! And, every single “news” outlet that were also derilict in their own DUTY to TELL THE TRUTH AS JOURNALSTS ARE ALSO GUILTY OF HIGH CRIMES AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND SHOULD ALSO BE TRIED AND SENTENCED! IT is the DUTY OF OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM TO SEE TO IT THAT OUR RIGHTS AND DEMANDS BE HEARD AND CARRIED OUT AS IS PROPER FOR WE, THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA!!!!!!! WE WILL ACCEPT NO LESS!

  17. This Judge will suddenly change her mind when she and her family are threatened by the obamafia, same as all her predecessors.

    I imagine that meally mouth mccain (no caps intentional) must be crying himself to sleep that his precious NDAA paragraphs authorizing this is shot down.
    I were walking in the swamp and came upon meally mouthwhiney mccain and a cur dog up to their necks in quicksand, I would do my dead level best to save the dog!

  19. S Rubicon says:

    There is so much wrong with this law, that even an injunction is not enough. However, that government attorney's vacilated when questioned by the judge, iy became obvious there may be or could be intentions far beyond the purposes of the law. That the administration has issued an ultimatum to the court they would ignore its ruling, shows the total contempt this administration has for our checks & balances system, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, the law, the judicial system, and above all, the people of this nation. We never wanted or intended or approved the possibility our elected President would have such powers.
    Now all know why November is so important. Obama would ignore all to do as he pleases.

  20. Oh sure old Barry, anything you want….. But first, please kneel before this jury of your pears. Twelve in all have been gathered to stand judgment at this hour in the time of our lord Jesus Christ. They will decide if you are to live or die. You are accused of high treason of the United States of America. Its people & the premise on which it was originally founded weighs in the balance. You will not be represented by an Attorney. You will not be allowed to wiggle out of this. Do you feel the noose tightening around your neck as you twist in the warm summer breeze? Beside you is your creator, Satin. Pour-ith he does cool ash on your forehead and comforts you he does in your final moments. Your children do cry for you. But nobody & nothing in this Gods world is stopping this wheel in the sky from bringing an end to the nightmarish blight you have brought upon the gentle people of this good earth. They do hurt for your mortal soul but know in their heart of hearts, that they are resolved to what is right & what must be done. You will never have any friends from this time on unto the end of the universe. May God have mercy on your soul.

    Election is getting closer……I pray everyone would try to imagine how terrible it would be for us
    to be subjected to another four (4) years like we have experienced since 2008. It is critical for
    us now, with all the changes takeing place. We are being robbed of our citizens" rights. Who
    would have EVER dreamed you could be arrested for having a BIBLE on your desk? ? ? Now that's
    a DUMB rule. We are a Christian Nation—not Atheistic—–WHO created this world? ? GOD's not
    dead—HE'S still ALIVE….To belittle HIM is dangerous—HE is the breath you breathe.
