Obama’s Legal Humiliation

Barack Obama speech 4 SC Obama’s Legal Humiliation

Part 2 of: Barack Obama Foreign Student – American Media Threatened into Silence

Today, there is no American news outlet factually covering the illegal actions of the sitting President of the United States in context. Nor is there one consistently exposing the laws his administration has flagrantly broken, though this corruption now demonstrably permeates every level of the federal system.

Attorneys General Tom Horne, Arizona; Pam Bondi, Florida; Sam Olens, Georgia; Bill Schuette, Michigan; Scott Pruitt, Oklahoma; Marty Jackley, South Dakota; Alan Wilson, South Carolina; Greg Abbott, Texas; and Ken Cuccinelli of Virginia produced a joint memo on March 5th, 2012 detailing 21 blatant violations of law committed by the Obama administration.

By now it is unsurprising the media has by and large ignored this announcement, although AG Cuccinelli did appear in an extended segment with CSPAN (the relevant segment can be found here) on March 18th.

Fortunately, The Tea Party Tribune published the Attorney’s General memo, “A Report on Obama Administration Violations of Law” in full the same day it was released. It is nothing short of a flashing legal headline story, yet cannot be found at the Washington Post or the New York Times.

“Whether it is through the EPA, NLRB, Office of Surface Mining, FCC or other entities, the Obama Administration has aggressively used administrative agencies to implement policy objectives that cannot gain congressional approval and are outside of the law.” – A Report on Obama Administration Violations of Law

An abbreviated list of broken laws includes:

  • PPACA (Obamacare): Individual Mandate; To be heard by Supreme Court of the United States in March
  • FCC: Regulation of the Internet in the face of a court order from Circuit Court of Appeals for Washington D.C. stating that the FCC does not have the power to regulate the Internet
  • EPA 1: GHG (Green House Gas) lawsuit; EPA’s own Inspector General reported last September that EPA failed to comply with its own data standards; Heard in Circuit Court of Appeals for Washington D.C. in February
  • OSM: Attempting to impose regulatory requirements on the 19 states with authority for exclusive regulation of their coalmines for the first time in more than 30 years
  • DOJ: South Carolina & Voting Rights Act: Rejecting voter ID statutes that are similar to those already approved by the Supreme Court of the United States; DOJ ignored section 8 of the Voting Rights Act which calls for protections against voter fraud, and used section 5 to administratively block measures to protect the integrity of elections passed by state legislatures in preclearance states including South Carolina; South Carolina voter ID law merely requires a voter to show photo identification in order to vote or to complete an affidavit at the pain of perjury if the voter does not have a photo ID
  • DOJ: Arizona & Voting Rights Act: Rejecting voter ID statutes that are similar to those already approved by the Supreme Court of the United States
  • DOE: Yucca Mountain; In 2009, Administration arbitrarily broke federal law and derailed the most studied energy project in American history when DOE announced intent to withdraw 8,000 page Yucca Mountain licensing application with prejudice.

- A Report on Obama Administration Violations of Law

14 more violations of law are listed in the AGs’ memo. At one time or another, many of these violations have made the news, yet the full list is never presented to the public. When compiled, it is apparent even at a glance that the federal government as led by Barack Obama has no respect for the law. Clearly, the Obama government is acting as it deems fit. Much as a monarchy would. As if the States did not exist. As if the Constitution of the United States did not apply.

Indeed, when it comes to Obama and his government, the Constitution is a barrier to be removed. As Obama stated in a 2001 interview with NPR, “generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties.”  Undeniably, the Constitution limits government negatively; it states what the government cannot do. From the point of view of someone attempting to expand government powers beyond that which the Constitution limits it to, it is extraordinarily (and negatively) limiting. It was designed that way. It is the keystone, the cornerstone, the foundation of a free people; one freed and protected from government tyranny.


The M-1/A-2 tank in the room

If more evidence were needed to delineate the obvious disrespect coming from the Oval Office for the Law, on Monday, April 2nd 2012, President Barack Obama attempted to erase 200 years of legal history, stating in a press conference with world leaders that the law codified in the Supreme Court Case Marbury v. Madison (5 U.S. 137) 1803 is not valid:

“Ultimately, I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected congress.” – Barack Obama 4-5-2012

Hundreds of bills have passed out of Congress and been found unconstitutional, overturned by the Supreme Court, since Marbury V. Madison established in 1803 the Supreme Court’s right of judicial review.

The Supreme Court has been the final arbiter of law, determining the constitutionality of laws passed by Congress for over two hundred years. There is no article or section in the Constitution which specifically bestows this power within the Court. Instead, Marbury was the court’s interpretation of the Constitution; furthermore, the legal precedent it set in that decision still stands as good law today.

This is not the first time Mr. Obama has attempted to re-write history to his liking. The difference here lay in the fact that the media is in a feeding frenzy over this one.

The day following this massive falsehood, April 2nd, Eric Holder was ordered to address Obama’s statements by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, forcing the administration to publicly acknowledge the law established in Marbury.

Attorney General Eric Holder stated in the department’s court ordered response: “The Department has not in this litigation, nor in any other litigation of which I am aware, ever asked this or any other Court to reconsider or limit long-established precedent concerning judicial review of the constitutionality of federal legislation.” Even the Attorney General of the United States is hanging Obama out to dry on this issue.

Marbury V. Madison is not just an elephant in the room; it’s more like M-1/A-2 tank running flat out, but not for the reasons most immediately apparent. What is missing from this conversation, so ravenously devoured by the press, is this: Marbury was decided in 1803, it’s has been cited hundreds of times. It has never been overturned. The Attorney General of the United States affirms that it is good law. There is absolutely no question it is binding law, so commonplace it wasn’t even a discussion piece outside first year law school until the president tried to undo it in a press conference.

So far, so good, but what’s missing here?

If Marbury has never been overturned and is binding law with decades of citable history behind it, what makes it different from a case decided in 1875 which has also never been overturned and has been cited to for decades?

Nothing. They are both still law.

Minor V. Happersett in 1875 decided that Ms. Virginia Minor did not have the right to vote. While originally a Women’s Suffrage (voting) case, the Court in Minor interpreted the Constitution, determining that citizenship itself did not give right to vote, unequivocally stating in the final paragraph of the decision: “Being unanimously of the opinion that the Constitution of the United States does not confer the right of suffrage upon any one”Minor V. Happersett (88 U.S. 162).

Constitutional Amendments against discrimination preventing a person from voting based on race (15th), sex (19th) and age (26th)., are taken for granted as being a constitutional rights to vote; yet in reality, there is no constitutionally protected “right” to vote (there are amendments against discrimination.)

To re-state this immeasurably important distinction, there is nothing in the Constitution which gives Americans the right to vote; instead, the Constitution eliminates circumstances such as gender and race from preventing voting. This is a legal distinction perhaps only a lawyer can properly love, yet the fact remains that the difference between the two is as great as the difference between lead and gold.

This is why the Minor Case has never been overturned; its conclusion is a statement of fact. Because it has never been overturned, the basic definitions of citizenship made in Minor still apply today because they are the independent grounds upon which the court made its decision.

To use a metaphor, ‘The light bulb turned on because there is electricity. Electricity is the flow of electrons in a current which heats a wire making a light bulb glow.’ The definition of electricity is the independent ground upon which we can say the light bulb turned on.

This is not an issue of dictionary semantics or the meaning of words changing over time. The Minor court defined natural born citizenship as part of its independent ground for deciding the case, making it a part of the “holding” – for deciding the case as it did. “Citizenship does not give the right to vote. Citizens are…” These definitions were codified in law which, like those made in Marbury V. Madison, makes them inviolate.

The court in 1875 chose to define through its specific wording what natural born citizens were and still are today, just as in 1803 it decided the right of judicial review lay with the Supreme Court and nowhere else.


Illegal governments do illegal things

Why is the Minor case relevant in 2012 as it applies to the federal government breaking laws left and right?

The answer is not only insidiously dangerous, but terribly simple. The man at the head of that government is there illegally. How can this be? Because Minor V. Happersett is still law, it has not been overturned any more than Marbury V. Madison has.

“At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their [p168] parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first. For the purposes of this case it is not necessary to solve these doubts. It is sufficient for everything we have now to consider that all children born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction are themselves citizens.” Minor V. Happersett (88 U.S. 162)

The Court did not need to decide if Virginia Minor was a citizen because she was obviously a natural born citizen, born in the United States to two parents who were its citizens. The Minor case instructs clearly and concisely that those not born to two citizen parents will have doubts cast on their citizenship status, which in some circumstances, such as qualification under Article 2 Section 1 of the United States Constitution, will demand answers.

Simple logic tells us that where there is doubt about something, proofs must be offered to confirm its status. The proof offered by Barack Obama of his Natural Born Citizenship and placed by him on the White House website has been found to be a “probable forgery” by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, in a legitimate law enforcement action undertaken at the written insistence of the Citizens of Maricopa County and presented to them in person on March 31, 2012. The Sheriff is a five time, popularly elected law enforcement official who has served 20 years in that office.

This is the M-1/A-2 tank roaring through the room. If Marbury V. Madison is still law, so too is Minor V. Happersett.

If Barack Obama was completely wrong to state: “…the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected congress…”, then he is equally incorrect to claim Natural Born Citizenship because he was not “born in a country of parents who were its citizens.” He has offered no legitimate proof that he could be a citizen; his father was a British subject of Kenya and was never a citizen of the United States. What proof Obama has offered has been proven a forgery by law enforcement officials.

The simplest of conclusions is unavoidable: Illegal governments do illegal things. Expect nothing less.

  1. sean murry says:

    The lib media is covering for him.

  2. Just sickening; a mountain of evidence, and not one lousy soul brave enough to talk about it. I hope they realize that they are going to have to answer to God about this??? May the mountains fall on your cowardly heads! Spineless creatures as bad as OHNO.

  3. We are so full of all this evidence of Obama's violations on the law, the Constitution, his oath of office, that we are about to burst at the seams, but to what end? We cannot impeach him because neither party in Congress will make a move toward doing so. Oh sure, every once in a while, we get a news blurp on WND that Issa or some other member of Congress is either preparing an article of impeachment or that one is moving through Congress, but that is as far as it goes.

    We cannot remove him from office through the Courts because the courts tell us that either they don't have the jurisdiction to do so or they say that it is true that Obama has not shown any documentation to prove he was born in Hawaii, but then they turn around and say "he was born in Hawaii, so he is eligible." Sheriff Arpio has more then enough evidence proving that Obama's birth certificate and Selective Service registration have been forged, but no court or law enforcement agency will even look at it.

    So what is purpose of all these articles and evidence gathering? The only justice that we the people will ever see is a complete bloody revolution.

    • agreed rev gregori,we the people by me are informed,educated and prepared.we haven,t listened to any media or polls in a long,long time,we know the devil/ovomit and his band of traders,holdup/racist/clown/reid/panetta/napalitano a joke/pelosi a moran/wasserman/waters a racist/hillary nwo agenda21 trader/epa/doj a joke/doh a bigger joke/un people traders/and all politicians who are aiding and abetting this treasonous trader/ovomit/holdup. rev gregori we are with you its time to take back our government/we the people are the real government {were and when}we have but one life to give for our country,praying for peace,preparing for ovomit/holdup.one nation under god

      • Robert, I am merely a priest, and I have no real military experience, so as far as where and when, all I can say: 'Where' is the entire country, 'When' right NOW, but since I lack military experience, I cannot lead or even presume to lead in any physical way. If a real patriot with the kind of military leadership that is required, I am more then ready and eager to do my part in restoring our Constitutional Republic to its rightful place.

  4. JOSEPH FELS says:

    With all this evidence and down right disregard for the Constitution ,etc…Then start doing the right thing….The so called Senators and Congressman only had a jismn stained dress and look what happend so what are they waiting for……Guess they are affarid becasue behind the scenes someone is probably threating them and they are keeping quite….Just one Man's opinion

    • Joseph, I sincerely believe that you are correct, either all of our elected officials, all of our judges, law enforcement personnel, etc., have been threatened or they are all willing participants in the destruction of our nation. Either way, how sad.

  5. god help us there is nothing left but the second amendment. i have prayed it would never come to this. i am to old to do anything but watch

    “A complete and bloody revolution” is exactly what is going to happen here in the United States of America. Because we have a bunch of spineless and greedy bastards in the Senate, and Congress who will not lift a finger to help us keep America, our homeland, free and as our forefathers fought and died for. So we too, are going to have to fight and die in order to do what those men and women in Washington did not do, and do it without a bloody revolution. We are being forced into this, this is not what we, the people, would have chosen to do. If anyone remembers our history, our First American Revolution was to end the rule of King George, and end taxation, and to end the CONTROL over the colonists and their lives. Our ancestors fought against tyranny, and taxation, so what is wrong with us if we do not rise up and keep what they, our ancestors, forefathers, did over 200 years ago? Do we not owe it to our children, and tpo their children as well? Anything worth having, such as freedom and liberty, and all that we have as a nation, isn’t it worth fighting for!?? Sure, it’s much easier and safer to sit at our computers and complain, but do we have the “Real Stuff” to do what MUST BE DONE TO KEEP AMERICA SAFE FROM SUCH EVIL AS WHAT WE ARE WITNESSING TODAY? This MUST HAPPEN, for we are in GRAVE DANGER OF LOSING OUR COUNTRY TO THIS MU SLIME!!! To him and his ilk, we are going to have to either fight, or sit back and allow him to do what he is hellbent on doing, destroying our nation, and destroying us completely! Lock and load people! And stand, stand for something, or we will all fall……….into the trap that this filthy disesed mu SLiME has laid for us.

    • right on target betty,the 1960,s was my warm up{,were and when},just give me a couple of days to restock.i like many have prayed for peace,but have prepared for the devil/ovomit/head racist holdup/take bible in one hand and 2nd amendment/protection in the other hand.you know all these politicians are all in bed with the head musmutt/ovomit/devil/hitler and his head racist ag/holdup and all politicians for allowing these treason to go on,are aiding and abetting these treasonous traders,time for all new window dressing.god bless ron paul,sheriff joe and cold case posse,and all american veterans and all american citizens.one nation under god

  7. Obama could care less about our laws. His is a Marxist fraud and must be removed from office. If he is re-elected it will be up to us to do a citizens arrest, and have the numbers in D.C. to make it stick.

  8. Betsy K. Larsen says:

    The Most Reverend Gregori is only a priest, and I am only a housewife/cleaning lady. But during the Revolutionary War, with Great Britian, who at the time was the World’s Super Power, the colonists who fought for the birth of our nation, and for our future, were only farmers and such, who didn’t even have the proper weapons with which to fight. So, today we who are only priests and housewives and other such Patriots who only want the America that our ancestors fought and bled for, if we can’t find a gun or two to fight with, we are indeed a pitiful lot! Even Wal Mart sells rifles and the like, and bullets. Before they decide to be “Politically Correct”, may I suggest going to this store and at least aquiring one or two such things? I am going to, soon. I may have to work an extra cleaning job or two in order to do so, but for my country and for my people, I am willing to scrub a few more floors, and clean a few more toilets! This is not so much to ask of one who loves her country and her freedom and liberty! And you, Reverend Gregori, talk to God, ask Him for the means with which to get what you need in order to stand up for your rights as a Christian Priest, and God will supply ALL YOUR NEEDS, as stated in Phillipians, chapter 4, verse 14! And remember too, “with God, all things are possible” Matthew 19:26. And, that when fighting for God and country, it is indeed a righteous war. With God on our side, who can stand against us? When one has the true Word of God in one hand, and the might of God Himself with them, no man can stand against him and the Army of God, the only God that there is! Many say that their “god” is the one, but a tree is known by the fruit that it bears, so does the man who bears rotten fruit tell who and what he is also. False gods come and go, but the One God, the God of Moses and Abraham, and of Issac, has always been, and will always be! Our faith is being tested right now, but we can stand firm, knowing that in the end, God will win and bring about the Real Hope and Change, and His name is Jehovah. The God of the Hebrews and the God who brought them out of Egypt and into the promised land. Many times these Hebrews disobeyed God, and many times, they were punished, as we read in the Old Testament, but also, many times God came to their aid, and saved them from destruction. So, many times, America has disobeyed and disrespected God, but God is a forgiving God, and if we stand for Him, and for what is right, we too, can be saved from a future without what we hold dear………but first we must be willing to fight and possibly die a human death, before God will once again bless us as a nation, for we must bring back our past glory, and give that glory back to God! In this fight we now face, we need weapons to defend our Bibles, and our Constitution, so that we can again be the nation, ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, that we were before we ALLOWED this to be taken from us by the wicked men and women who would see us all ruined, and under communist, or worse, rule! To “put on the whole armour of God” may mean more than the “armour” of righteousness today, it means that we are going to have to put on some very human armor, and stand up and fight, whether we are housewives, priests, or school teachers, nurses, doctors, or simply a waitress at the local diner in Washington! It is going to be the everyday, average American who now fights for our nation, not these power hungry and evil men and women who sit in our White House, they do not care. It is we, the people of America who have the MOST TO LOSE! You and I, Rev.Gregori, we are the biggest losers if we sit on our hands and let others fight the fight that is by rights, ours to fight also. It will be the “Little People” of America to fight this war that is coming……..and coming it is, bet on it. First, I’d pray on it, that would be the best “bet” of all, you see. Ask for Divine Guidance. It was the “Little People” who fought and won the First American Revolution. And if we win again, which we have to do, it will once again be won by we, the Little people of our nation! Maybe, if we are lucky, our military will help some, but I would not count on it…………so Rev. Gregori, you do some serious praying, and the rest of us will do the same………but we ALL need to find the weapons to fight with, for when it comes, it will be with weapons that we American Patriots are attacked! That is 100% PLUS assured! As fighting fire with fire, so it will be fighting weapons with weapons. Die, we might have to, but if we do so, it should be with the Battle Hymn of the Republic on our lips! And with GOD ALMIGHTY ON OUR SIDES! For there is no BETTER WAY TO DIE IF ONE MUST DIE FOR A CAUSE! Give me LIBERTY, OR GIVE ME DEATH, was the words written by another Patriot, from another time and another war for LIBERTY AND FREEDOM FROM TYRANNY! It should be our cry in another time, and that time is NOW, the year of our Lord, 2012!!!!
