Obama's Patchwork Federalism

The Obama administration's claim that its legal challenge to Arizona's law is due to their strict adherence to the constitution is like an atheist claiming that he is for God. Totally ludicrous! The Obama administration thinks that the Arizona law encroaches on the Federal government's jurisdiction when it is meant to work in conjunction with the Federal immigration laws. These two laws are two peas in the same pod. What Holder & Co. hate is that the Arizona immigration law reveals that the Obama administration is willfully hostile to enforcing the existing immigration laws. Do you see the Obama administration going after sanctuary cities because of their lack of enforcing the federal law? Oh no... That would go against the Obama administration's agenda of pandering to the undocumented democrats immigrants. The truth is that the Obama administration's support is sinking faster than the Titanic. Their pathway of destruction of the constitution instead of enforcing it is causing this administration's rapid decline. Obama and Holder are quite content with abdicating the Federal government's authority to the various state laws when it comes to medical marijuana laws. The fact is that the Federal government's power has grown into a huge green giant which is stomping and crushing States' rights, abusing its power and impeding on the states' responsibility and authority to protect its citizens and enforce laws. Obama has departed from Bush policy by handing out waivers to 13 states so that they could insititute radical "climate change" policies that are more stringent than the Federal government requires.
 
"Setting immigration policy and enforcing immigration laws is a national responsibility," Holder said in the press release announcing the lawsuit. "Seeking to address the issue through a patchwork of state laws will only create more problems than it solves.



The Obama administration is worried that allowing local police to arrest illegal aliens will somehow overburden federal law enforcement officers, but it isn't concerned that allowing people to grow and smoke marijuana will overburden federal drug enforcement officers? It is worried about a patchwork of immigration enforcement laws (as opposed to immigration laws), but not a patchwork of environmental regulations that directly affect interstate commerce?


Obama isn't the slightest bit concerned about a 'patchwork' of state laws that contradict and supersede federal authority. He is reaching for a legal argument to justify his desire to undo the Arizona law, which he simply dislikes."

Obama, Holder & Co. have blatantly refused to enforce the immigration laws that are presently on the books. I say to these bunch of scrap paper selective costitutional "followers" that they should move over and get the hell out of the way to allow Gov. Brewer and other state's governors to do their job properly without you interfering and inpeding their ability to do so. If you ain't going to help, get the hell outta the way. Leave them the hell alone, like you chose to do with the medical marijuana laws. This administration consistently chooses to go against the American people. Instead of serving the American people Obama admin is diametrically opposed to American citizens, like a regime or a dictatorship that doesn't give a rat's ass about their citizens but is willing to do anything to advance their own agenda. This is a constutional republic and we, the American people, will not stand by idly and silently any longer while this administration "transforms" and malforms this country into something that our Founders did not intend.

AMEN Teresa,
The only thing they are doing and intend to do is destroy the fabric of this nation and the constitution...

Don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining...

John Carey said...

That was an outstanding post Teresa. They go after Arizona for passing a law that not only supports the federal law, but actually enhances it with enforcement. They ignore California and New Mexico that passes laws that make the use of marijuana legal violating federal law and they do nothing. Their hypocrisy is sickening. I have never seen a collection of people at one time trying to destroy America. We must continue to expose these socialists for who they are and drive them back into the shadows from hence they came for 100 generations.

They're afraid if Arizona arrests too many illegals, the Democrats will lose too many future democrat voters.

Ron Russell said...

I have noticed over the years that those in power always interpret the Constitution in such a way as to reflect their agenda. Obama and company seem to have a problem with the Arizona law claiming interference with federal law, while at the same time turning a blind eye to sanctuary cities who disregard federal law. A clear double standard.

I agree with John, an outstanding post Teresa!

I believe that Obama's only reason for suing Arizona is because the Arizona law interfers with his plans for total amnesty and citizenship for the millions of illegals in the country right now.

The spin masters will use any means to accomplish their agenda. They are planning on amnesty and want as many Obama voters as possible, Arizona is in the way.

Chicago Ray said...

Very good thoughts there Teresa ;)

Woodster nails it 2...too many illegals leave and the dems can't get elected by minorities and whack whites only.

those millions of illegals vote as regular as we do, and THEY probably get paid to do it.

We'll see the effect from roadblocking ACORN albeit temporarily in the next election and Illegals will be afraid to show up as well I'm betting which is good.

the results will astonish America and they'll scramble to explain it when the answer is voter fraud for decades..

Alvin green times 500 let's pray.

The fact that an Attorney General of the United States has sent down guidelines that people who are black would not be prosecuted for civil rights violations simply because of the color of their skin -- or that the Federal Government would selectively apply the law as it applies to ILLEGAL immigrants should be grounds for dismissal. It would be under anyone except barack hussein obama.

As it is, the MSM cheers his misconduct in office.

I agree with those who commented about Arizona standing in the way of amnesty which the BO administation is counting on for extra democrat voters in 2012.

Sunflower Pipes said...

There are many persuasive arguments on why America should legalize medical marijuana, and the reasons are sound. However, even though many millions of Americans smoke a glass pipe or hit a bong it has not translated into real political pressure on the people who can change the laws. The last three presidents were admitted pot users and the same is probably true of the first three presidents as well. In the end it is up to us to be public about our choices and to collectively voice our opinions.
