No More Ashcroft or Change We Don’t Want?

I am not sure how many of you read the article posted on Fox Nation’s site regarding the DOJ’s changes to their website. This article appeared last week, but I did not write down the link – my bad. Apparently, the changes to the website were made quite some time ago. I went to usdoj.gov and found, much to my dismay, the article is correct. The red, white and blue that was predominately displayed is gone and it has been replaced with a black and white banner.

The quote “The common law is the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people.” is posted on the black banner at page top. This quote is from C. Wilfred Jenks, a British lawyer, who was the Director-General of the ILO, ‘International Labour Organization’. According to The American Spectator, Mr. Jenks was a leading figure of the “international law” movement. A source inside the DOJ also told The American Spectator the change was because the flag page was too “Ashcroft”, too “political”.

So, our United States Department of Justice thinks a quote from a believer in global law and global worker rights is appropriate. Are you kidding me? Mr. Attorney General Holder, what are you thinking? Are you thinking? What is wrong with using quote(s) from one of our Founding Fathers? What is wrong with using the Stars and Stripes as a background for our website? Are you ashamed of our country? Are you saying you prefer global/international law to our Constitution and Bill of Rights? Are you saying you will not enforce the law of the land except where it fits your ideals? Is this your “coming out” party where you drop all pretense of being in charge of defending the Constitution and Bill of Rights and instead want to change to UN International law and/or the law of Socialism or? I am sure you didn’t make this change without the blessing of your boss, President Obama.

What else are you changing, Mr. Holder? Will these changes take effect before or after the mid-term elections? Are you going to allow us to vote or will you declare some sort of emergency and nullify or postpone elections; the Constitution; the Bill of Rights, until an indeterminate time in the future? Is this the beginning of a Socialist takeover of our Republic? Or will you be more circumspect and make changes slowly and quietly so as not to alarm the masses? What are you up to Mr. Holder? I await your answer. America waits for your answer.

State Department Shenannigans

September 22, 2009

Why is the Obama Administration penalizing the Honduran Government?  Former President Zeyala attempted to illegally change the Honduran Constitution to enable him to remain in office for life.  He appears to be inspired by Chavez of Venezuela and Morales of Bolivia.

Honduras is a democratically operated government, and when Zeyala attempted this illegal maneuver the Honduran Supreme Court rejected his attempt and ordered his arrest.  The military arrested him and he was sent into exile.  For acting to protect their constitution our Secretary of State ordered visa suspensions for most of the Honduran Government.  Other sanctions have followed as has condemnation from our President, Secretary of State, and political leaders.  Our President and Secretary of State are demanding Zeyala be re-instated or more severe sanctions will be brought.

Why?  Why is Honduras protecting its own Constitution a bad thing?  They were following their laws – Zeyala was not.  In spite of the awful rhetoric directed from D.C. to Honduras the Hondurans are standing strong in support of their democracy.  The military acted to preserve the Constitution at the direction of their Supreme Court.  It was not the usual military coup installing yet another despot.  They withdrew and an interim President was appointed.  Elections were not canceled nor were rights and freedoms enjoyed by citizens suspended.

What goal(s) is the U.S. pursuing with these demands?  What is the purpose of these U.S. demands?  Does our government really prefer a Socialist government in Honduras?  If so, why and does this stand by the Obama Administration pose a danger to our Republic?
