Arrogant Barry and the band of Court Jesters

I have been trying to think of an appropriate title for the current occupant of the White House and his co-horts he’s placed throughout government agencies. I thought of “Barry and his Merry Miscreants”. “King Obama and his court jesters”. I even considered “Massa O and his Overseers”. That one I sort of dismissed because liberals already call anyone racist that dares to question Obama, let alone out and out disagree with him. But it really may be appropriate in some ways.

In the last week, we’ve seen Obama and his minions play both sides of the fence when it comes to the law in United States of America. Here’s a quick review:

Monday, the Supreme Court declares the Arizona law constitutional regarding stopping motorists and if found to be suspected of being in this country illegally, they would be detained and turned over to ICE. Within minutes the Secretary of Homeland Security announces that they will not do anything about any calls coming from Arizona. The Supreme Court, the final arbiter in the land, has spoken but the Obama Administration doesn’t like it, so they won’t follow the law.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court declares that Obamacare is not constitutional under the Commerce Clause, but that it is constitutional using the taxing authority. Obama comes out within hours and says that the “Supreme Court (the final arbiter in the land) has spoken” and the debate regarding health care doesn’t need to be continually argued about.

So apparently, on Monday the Supreme Court spoke and nobody was listening, but on Thursday, the Supreme Court spoke and the White House decided to pay attention. Maybe the Mama’s and Papa’s had it right. “Monday, Monday, can’t trust that day”.

There was another event that took place on Thursday. The United States House of Representatives voted to hold Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress. Within minutes, the U. S. Attorney, Ronald Machen, said they would not pursue the charges. Does Ronald Machen sound familiar? I’ll remind you in a minute if you don’t remember.

The House of Representatives is a group of elected officials. Elected by the PEOPLE from all around this country. The Attorney General is not elected. He’s appointed by the President. It’s not an elected office but rather a seat that is entrusted with enforcing the laws of the land. The laws come from the elected officials who were put in place by the PEOPLE. Could it be bad law? Yes, Congress is not above making mistakes, but it is the law and it’s to be followed. However, when the appointed Attorney General only selectively enforces laws, as in Arizona, as in Washington, then the laws really mean nothing.

This isn’t the first time this attorney general has refused to enforce laws. Shortly after taking his seat in 2009, he refused to prosecute those that were impeding the PEOPLE’s ability to vote. I’m sure it’s not because it was blacks impeding the whites from voting against the black man running for office, nor because the attorney general is also a black man (he said sarcastically).
More recently, there was the discovered National Security leaks. The FBI is investigating but the Attorney General appointed two U.S. Attorneys to head an independent investigation. One of those U.S. Attorneys is Ronald Mechan. Remember him? I mentioned him above as the one that refused to act on enforcing the law when it came to enforcing it against his own boss. In the business world, there is something similar when you favor relatives over other employees that might be more qualified. It’s called nepotism. Or when you hire someone over another due to their ethnicity rather than their ability. It’s called Affirmative Action. But I’m sliding into other topics for another time.

Can we really trust a guy, Ronald Mechan, to make good decisions when he won’t follow the law when it comes to his boss? He is now showing that he doesn’t apply the law fairly and equally. So when the leak investigation is completed, how can we trust the results? We already know that the leak came from inside the White House. Should we expect the White House receptionist or maybe the tour guide or a janitor, will be implicated to protect someone more powerful?

In addition to Holder being held in contempt, the President has invoked Executive Privilege. For a man who said repeatedly that he would have transparency I can only wonder what could he be hiding that we don’t have a clue about yet.

So we know that those in this administration don’t have any regard for the elected law makers, which means he has no regard for the people because they chose these law makers. They don’t have any regard for the law if it doesn’t suit them at the moment. They don’t have any regard for the truth. They don’t have any regard for their employees. After all, a federal employee was murdered and the weapon found at the murder scene was found to be provided by the White House to the drug cartels. But then, this was JUST a border patrol agent and we already know how this President feels about securing the borders. It occurs to me that if the border patrol agent had been a black man, would Obama and Holder think it’s just another black man that died and they die every day or would they actually do something about the border wars because the drug cartels or illegal aliens have dared to kill a black man.

Ok, I went far afield here (partially on purpose). What it boils down to is that this administration is incompetent, corrupt, and has turned out to be even a bigger failure than was stated to be hoped for back in 2009. Obama has no interest in the laws, nor the people. He is only interested in himself and his own self preservation. Arrogance doesn’t begin to describe this guy nor his little group of henchmen.
