Skip to comments.Breaking News: Obama action against DOMA coming
Posted on 02/23/2011 9:39:31 AM PST by Justaham
A well-placed and trusted source tells me that, any minute now, Attorney General Eric Holder will issue a statement announcing that it will no longer defend so-called Defense of Marriage Act lawsuits in court. The source believes DOJ had come to the conclusion that heightened scrutiny would apply, and that these cases cannot be defended in court. A 530d letter has been sent to Congress informing it that, if it wants to defend the statute, it is free to do so. A case is pending now that has a filing deadline of March 11.
This is huge, folks. By definitively stating that gay men and lesbians deserve heightened scrutiny, the Obama administration is declaring that there is no government interest in perpetuating the discrimination aggrieved parties are trying to redress.

where are all the dumba**es that said we didn’t need a marriage amendment?
WE TOLD YOU SO.
Dictatorship in action..... to hell with the constitution, rule of law and the will of the People.
While the middle east is going to hell in a hand basket.....
Are we going to see Sarah Palin step up on this issue?
One law he IS enforcing is the confiscation of our hard earned money by hiring thousands of new IRS thugs!
Oil just hit $100 a barrel. $5 is expected by summer, the economy is about to crash, and what is Oboma doing???? Kissing queers!
Exactly....and the walls keep being torn down...relentlessly. We are being destroyed by thugs within our very own country. The assults on our country and all it's goodness just floods thru washington now.
The DOMA is a Federal LAW passed by CONGRESS and signed into LAW by Bubba CLINTON.
OBAMA has just STATED he is REFUSING to enforce FEDERAL LAW.
WE don’t get to pick and choose WHICH LAWS we will follow...AND THAT GOES FOR THE PRESIDENT ALSO.
THIS IS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE.
It’s been said oil at $120 to $140 will crash the whole system...not far from that now. Even at $120 our nation will shake from it. We are heading for some very dire times ahead.
Wow! In essence, this nullifies any act of congress the admn doesn’t like.
“Dictatorship in action..... to hell with the constitution, rule of law and the will of the People.”
I hopw ALL OF US get this point.
The EXECUTIVE BRANCH has decided what is constitutional, NOT the Supreme Court.
This, in itself, is a violation of the Constitution!!!!
So Obama ignores the court’s decision that ObamaCare is unconstitutional, yet decides on it’s own that DOMA is unconstitutional...
If the federal government isn’t going to do its job, can the taxpayers stop doing theirs?
Is this a job for Issa? It needs to get started now. Going for the 8 ball would sure spare us the time and costs of all the other shenanigans.
‘I hereby declare God’s law, and the laws of man and nature, governing human development for hundreds of thousands of years, stating that marriage is between a man and a woman as hereby cancelled.....
So Sayeth I, Barack Hussein Obama II, first Fascist Dictator of America!’
I checked your page, I figured it was about the movie based on your post. I agree that we need as many people as possible to order this DVD. I just ordered another copy and had it sent to my sister and her family. And, I just changed my tagline!
Every day when I awake, first thing I do is check the headlines in the News. After I figure out that SOB is still alive, my day goes down hill from there.
Now he is saying he is above the law too. No Sir, you are not. Any legislative body worth its salt would impeach your sorry ass, convict you and boot you out onto the street.
Someone should ask Obama how this is this different from some in the Reagan administration doing an end around the Boland Amendment?
