Today in Kentucky, a county clerk who refused to sign marriage licenses for gay couples was jailed for contempt of court.
When asked about it during the White House Press Briefing, Josh Earnest said:
“On principle, the success of our democracy depends on the rule of law. And there is no public official that is above the rule of law. That’s a principle that is enshrined in our Constitution and in our democracy and it’s one that obviously the courts are seeking to uphold.”
Let me know when your jaw is off your keyboard and you’re ready for me to continue.
Well, now that it is the White House’s official position that no public official is above the law, I am expecting FBI agents to swarm 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue any moment now. They should probably send them out to every sanctuary city as well.
Of course Josh is doing what he does best, talking out of his ass.
They don’t give a damn about the rule of law. They don’t care one bit what is enshrined in our Constitution.
Separation of powers are enshrined in our Constitution.
You know what else is enshrined in our Constitution, Josh?
Freedom of religion.
The right to keep and bear arms.
The right to be protected from unreasonable searches.
The Senate having treaty powers.
Immigration policy and law being determined solely by Congress.
The Legislative branch alone can make law. That’s enshrined in our Constitution too.
But this gay marriage “law” was created out of whole cloth by the Judicial branch. That, Josh, is not “enshrined in our Constitution.”
Don’t try and zoom us, Josh. We all know that you and your boss don’t give two shits about the Constitution.
Suddenly one county clerk refuses to issue marriage licenses and Josh Earnest is worried about the Constitution. Six and a half years of his boss crapping all over it didn’t bother him one iota.
Equality under the law. That’s the very foundation of the Civil Society, Josh.
But where is equality under the law here in Obama’s America?
Lois Lerner used her position at the IRS to specifically target Americans with whom she and this President politically disagreed.
That isn’t “enshrined in our Constitution.” But Lois Lerner, a public official, was given paid leave and has not even been subject to a criminal investigation by the supposed “Justice” Department.
I really have no patience for full of shit hypocrites like Barack Obama or Josh Earnest.
Neither of them give a damn about our Constitution or our republic. That’s right, Josh. We’re a republic, not a democracy.
In America in the Age of Obama there is no equality under the law.
Before SCOTUS made gay marriage a federal right, county clerks who issued marriage licenses to gay couples where it was illegal were not jailed because they refused to follow the law.
No public officials in cities that violate immigration laws and make themselves sanctuary cities are jailed or face any censure at all.
Because there is no equality under the law. Public officials are not held to the same standard.
So go peddle your bullshit elsewhere you dick.
