Courting Disaster

by Fay Voshell - March 1st, 2011 - The American Thinker

The Obama administration has basically executed a coup against the judiciary and due process of law by taking to itself the duties of the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government. For if the administration can decree a given law as unconstitutional without the evaluation of its constitutionality or non-constitutionality residing in the hands of the judiciary, the process of judicial review is unnecessary. Worse, the entire system of governmental checks and balances is completely wrecked. The executive branch would reign as supreme arbiter of law.

If the Executive branch can rule what is or is not Consitutional, then any act can be defended. A perfect example is the act of suspending elections.

If next year, in 2012, Obama orders that elections be suspended because of civil unrest like that currently going on in Madison Wisconsin, what Institution would oppose him? Even if red states proceded with elections, would the result have any meaning if 3 or 4 major blue states did not vote? What Institution of government would attempt to remove Obama in such a contested environment?

It was inconceivable as recently as last month that anyone in the American government would simply overturn a legally enacted bill by Presidential fiat. Yet Obama has accomplished that with his declaration that the Defense of Marriage Act ins un-Constitutional. What Institution will challenge him? Nothing indicates that the Republican Party has even noticed this un-Constitutional usurption of power.

The revered Insitutions of our nation are unraveling and the press is backing the mob in Madison. Has not a single member of the press considered, if the Constitution means nothing, doesn't that mean that freedom of the press means nothing?
