DOJ Decides to Stop Defending DOMA

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Apparently President Obama feels that the Supreme Court is not necessary.  You know that constitutional role they have of interpreting the constitution and ruling any laws that violate it unconstitutional?  Well to blazes with them, Obama says, he can do that just fine himself.  Today, Obama decided that the Defense of Marriage Act that congress passed back in 1996 is in fact unconstitutional, and he has ordered his Department of Justice (you know, the guys who insisted on giving 9/11 terrorists the rights of US citizens, has been attacking Arizona for trying to defend their border, and has bent our constitution all directions to defend Obamacare in court) to cease defending that federal law in court. 

However you feel about the issue of gay marriage, it should scare you that Obama is taking over the Supreme Court's constitutionally-mandated role.  It should scare you that he also does not feel the need to have his "advisors" (aka. Czars) confirmed by the Senate, as also mandated in the Constitution.  Our government is as close to totalitarianism as it has ever been since FDR militarized the nation for WWII.  When will Americans wake up and see their freedom slipping away?

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration says it will no longer defend the constitutionality of a federal law that bans recognition of same-sex marriage.

In a statement Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder says President Obama has concluded that the administration can no longer defend the federal law that defines marriage as only between a man and a woman.

The Justice Department had defended the Defense of Marriage Act in court until now.
