In A Rare Moment Of Honesty Napolitano Claims The Obama Administration Can Choose What Laws To Enforce

This is how the Obama administration has been operating since day one. They have ignored charges of voter intimidation by New black Panthers members and other black groups while actively pursuing white groups like the Hutarees in Michigan.

The administration has ignored the Fast and Furious gun running scandal of the BATFE and stonewalled efforts by the Congress to learn more about it. Speaking of stonewalling, the administration has ignored efforts to learn why our Ambassador to Libya and three others were allowed to die in an attack on a US compound in Benghazi, Libya. They then lied about the cause of the attack and the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, lied to Congress when she was called to testify about the attack.

This administration has shown a complete and utter disregard for truth or justice. They are in the position of determining how justice is handed out and are using it to punish enemies, help friends, and push leftist agendas.

Now the Director of Homeland Security freely admits that they have been doing this.

Janet Napolitano

In a startling and candid admission, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano argued to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that regardless of oaths to uphold the law, the President and the executive branch can choose what laws are to be enforced.

Tensions rose as the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee questioned Napolitano over the enforcement, or lack thereof, of current U.S. immigration policies.

Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions confronted Napolitano about the her role in blocking the enforcement of federal laws…

Napolitano defended herself and the Obama Administration by claiming that the executive branch will declare what laws will and will not be enforced and that she expects ICE agents to comply.

“There are tensions with union leadership, unfortunately, but here’s what I expect as a former federal prosecutor and attorney general, and that is that law enforcement agents will enforce the law in accord with the guidance they’re given from their superiors,” Napolitano said. “That’s what we ask of ICE, that’s what we ask of Border Patrol, that’s what we ask throughout the Department and I believe that would be consistent with all law enforcement. Agents don’t set the enforcement priorities. Those are set by their superiors and they are asked then to obey that guidance in accord with the law.”

    There is always some form of leeway in the executive branch about how to enforce laws, but the Obama administration has gone beyond the pale into lawlessness with their arbitrary enforcement or lack thereof. They’ve broken the ideal of government that has been in effect since the Magna Carta: That all people, the governed and the governors, are equal under the law. That’s how rebellions and revolutions get started (not calling for one, just commenting on the fact).

    We are no longer a nation of laws when one man can decide which apply.

    Hold on a second…
    “Tensions rose as the oath breaking, braying jackasses of the Senate Judiciary Committee feigned shock and ourage over the enforcement, or lack thereof, of current U.S. immigration policies.”

    There, fixed it.

    Deciding which laws will be enforced is NOT what this Justice Dept is doing. What they are doing is deciding who will be punished for breaking the laws and who will be ignored.
    Case in point: New Black Panther voter intimidation. This was a ‘non-issue’ based upon the races of victims and perps. Reverse those races and it would have been a HUGH issue.

      Good pick up, they are selectively punishing those that the admin don’t like and letting the others run free. Another form of reverse racism.

    Since all laws are in discussion, why not talk about Sharia Laws! O.K.? It’s known there are “Honor Killings!” More and more these nut cases are shooting their family members for one reason or another (under Sharia Law, they claim, America’s Laws are null and void) thus its permissable to run over them, run them down, chop them up…etc. You get the picture!
    Well here’s another disgusting, sick practice now evolving in all the USA:
    Here is how depraved this (Radical)Islamic Religion and culture is:
    Female genital cutting (FGC) is a tradition that many assume to be affecting girls living only in Africa and Asia. But this rite of passage procedure is all too familiar for many women living in the U.S.
    The practice of cutting encompasses all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons, according to the World Health Organization. In some countries, many of these girls will have their clitoris completely removed to deny them sexual pleasure. And at its most severe, some of them will have their vaginas sewn shut to preserve their virginity.
    The older of the two Boston Bombing brothers forced his American Christian wife to submit to this practice while she was in the process of converting to Islam.
    Pretty sick bunch of scumbags, NO? And this practice is on the rise inside these USA. Pray. Amen.
    Where in the world are the Gloria Allreds of the Progressive New Left Activists and ACLU???HUH? Crickets!

    The remedy for this, in the face of a thug-in-chief in office, is impeachment. But then there is that thug leader in the Senate … oh well, never mind.
