Obama’s Contempt for the Rule of Law

The so-called “mainstream” media are despicable. The government propaganda news reporters of the past in places like Soviet Russia and their modern contemporaries do not hold a candle to the current communist Democrat mouthpiece news “reporters” here in America in their ability to lie to the people. Those of us who have watched the sickeningly fawning, fiercely biased reporting on Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) since before the 2008 presidential election know exactly what I mean. Reporters for the media establishment would not report the truth about Obama even on pain of death.
So it comes as no surprise that the most spiked (unreported) story of the past several weeks is that of three legal complaints against Obama in the State of Georgia that demand he prove his constitutional eligibility to hold the office of President, and thus, his ability to legally be on the ballot in Georgia. This story has not been covered by the mainstream media, except in rare isolated instances of vitriolic presentation. Have you seen it on your local evening news? Have you read it in your local bird cage liner newspaper? Nope and nope.
This story is huge, yet the Obot media, in lockstep with the sinister character in the White House, refuse to report on it. In the event you are unaware of this story, the bottom line is that finally after more than three years’ worth of legal challenges, one judge has been willing to allow the case against Obama to proceed on its merits. At last, we find a judge who appears to respect the Constitution. That judge is Michael M. Malihi of the Georgia Office of State Administrative Hearings.
Judge Malihi rejected the Obama team’s demand that he dismiss a subpoena requiring Obama to appear in court in Altanta to prove his eligibility. The judge refused. Then, Obama’s attorney, Michael Jablonski, tried to go around Judge Malihi’s court and sent a letter to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp demanding that he abolish the court case and announcing that neither Obama nor his counsel would attend (“contempt of court” anyone?). To his credit Secretary Kemp basically told team Obama to put it in their pipe and smoke it.
So the hearings were held last Thursday sans Team Obama. Arguments were heard which include that Obama is not a natural born citizen—as required by the Constitution—because his supposed father was not a U.S. citizen and that Obama possibly possesses a fraudulent Social Security number. The judge has yet to issue a ruling.
He could have issued a default ruling against Obama, but as WND’s Bob Unruh reported last Friday,
“Attorneys who argued in a Georgia court this week that Barack Obama isn’t eligible to be president say Administrative Law Judge Michael Malihi considered granting a default judgment before they even argued the case.
That presumably could have recommended that Obama failed to prove his eligibility and therefore should not be on the 2012 ballot, since he and his lawyer snubbed the hearing, for which Obama was subpoenaed.
But the attorneys argued against such an easy victory on the point of the single hearing, expressing instead their desire to get the evidence concerning Obama’s eligibility or lack of it in the record, so that it would be there should the case elevate to an appellate level.
The attorneys also said the strategy decision by Obama to simply ignore the subpoena and the hearing may ultimately backfire, because judges typically aren’t pleased to listen to arguments from someone who wants to introduce evidence during an appeal.”
The fact that Obama did not show when subpoenaed further illustrates his complete contempt for the rule of law in America. He has repeatedly violated the United States Constitution with non-recess recess appointments, taking over private sector car companies, signing the takeover of the health care industry and mandating that all Americans buy health insurance, running guns into the hands of enemies of America in the Mexican drug cartels, bypassing Congress to enact his will, etc.
As I have said before, Obama is behaving as a dictator, and someone needs to hold him accountable. I am not holding my breath for anyone to arrest him for contempt of court, but someone most certainly should. Despite what he seems to believe, he is not above the law; however, if no one is willing to hold him accountable to the law, by default he is above it. This is a terrible place in which we find our nation—with an utterly lawless man in the office of President.
Besides Orly Taitz and Mark Hatfield, another attorney who argued against Obama before Judge Malihi last Thursday was Van Irion, co-founder of the Liberty Legal Foundation. He had some serious observations about Obama’s disregard for the authority of the court, and in part, he wrote,
“One of my earliest childhood memories is of my parents talking about Nixon and the Watergate scandal. I remember the newspaper headline: ‘Nixon Resigns!’ President Nixon’s fight against court subpoenas made international news. Yesterday President Obama completely ignored a court subpoena, and the world shrugged.
Obama’s behavior yesterday is even more disturbing than Nixon’s. Nixon at least respected the judicial branch enough to have his attorney’s show up in court and follow procedure. Nixon’s fight in the courts followed existing law. Nixon acknowledged the authority of the judicial branch even while he fought it. Obama, on the other hand, essentially said yesterday that the judicial branch has no power over him. He ordered his attorneys to stay away from the hearing. He didn’t petition a higher court in a legitimate attempt to stay the hearing. Instead he showed complete contempt for the entire judicial branch and for the rule of law. Rather than respecting the legal process, Obama went around the courts and tried to put political pressure directly on the Georgia Secretary of State. When that failed, he simply ignored the judicial branch completely.
The rule of law, and our three-branch system of government, now hang in the balance. If the Georgia court issues a ruling on the merits and an order finding Obama in contempt of court, and if that contempt order actually results in real punishment of some kind, then we will still have a Constitutional Republic. If this doesn’t happen, then Obama will have been rewarded for showing complete contempt for the judicial branch.”
Yes, indeed.
There is most certainly contempt in every aspect of Obama’s being. He displays contempt for our nation, our military, our freedoms, our Constitution and rule of law, all while insulting our intelligence with his interminable lying. We will have to wait to see what Judge Malihi decides. I have no word on when he may issue his ruling, but it is said to be soon. I pray—and patriots throughout our nation pray—that he makes the right decision.
It is far past time for someone to hold this lawless criminal in the White House accountable. Yes, I said criminal! If you consider that to be too strong of a word to describe the behavior of Barack Obama, then you are simply uninformed or of like mind with him. The time for mincing words and playing polite with this communist Democrat regime is over—actually, the time for it never was. Now, more than ever, we must tell it like it is with this administration and shout it from the rooftops.
When you consider polling (if you believe any of the polls) that indicates about fifty percent of Americans support Obama for reelection, then you know how much trouble we are in. If after three years of Obama’s outrageous behavior in office, we see that many Americans are still truly so clueless, it is only a matter of a very short time before the commie zombies will completely rule over us. We must fight to educate and inform the voter zombies where we find them, and hope they will listen. Otherwise, it may soon be too late.
