From the Desk of Mat Staver. Our nation is in a constitutional crisis. The scandals whirling around the Obama administration are symptomatic of a major problem. Barack Obama and Eric Holder believe they are above the law.
America was based on the idea that even the king is not above the law, yet Obama has operated as though he is above the law. Barack Obama said the Constitution has “deep flaws.” He has characterized the Constitution as “a charter of negative liberties,” which “says what the states can’t do to you (and) what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf.” He regrets that “we have not broken free” of constitutional constraints.
I, on the other hand, believe that our Constitution as framed by our founders, who lived by faith, is an amazing document brilliantly crafted to create the foundations for the greatest government on earth. God is the foundation of good government and national prosperity.
I believe the tandem of Obama and Holder has created more constitutional crises in the past four years than any other president and attorney general in the history of our nation.
Just look at the mounting number of scandals surrounding this administration’s actions! Any one of these scandals might have toppled a prior administration. Yet, somehow, Obama and Holder arrogantly stand – and blame others – and demonize their opponents.
Obama and Holder have perpetually subverted the Constitution, catered to special interest groups, diminished First Amendment rights and religious freedoms – and showed an unprecedented disregard for the will of a majority of Americans.
These imperialistic policies have already thrust our nation into a full-blown constitutional crisis!
Can we afford any more politicization of our justice system?
The Attorney General’s job, according to the Department Of Justice website, is to “represent the United States in legal matters generally and give advice and opinions to the President and to the heads of the executive departments of the Government when so requested.”
It IS NOT permissible for the President of the United States or the Attorney General of the United States to use the power of their offices to obstruct justice, spread disinformation, manipulate voter blocs, confer special rights to selected political constituencies, employ double standards in justice, enact laws through fiat, fail to enforce the existing laws of our nation, or suppress the rights of political adversaries
This leads to gross violations of the rule of law and an outbreak of injustice at – of all places – the Department of Justice!
The majority of Americans no longer have confidence in Holder’s opinions and advice, which are the chief requirements for successfully performing the duties of the United States Attorney General. That’s why Liberty Counsel Action is calling for his removal.
Now is the time to put an end to Eric Holder’s scandalous management of the nation’s highest law enforcement office. Now is the time for Eric Holder to step down as head of Barack Obama’s Department of Justice!
Please, join me now in calling for the removal of Eric Holder as Attorney General. Congress must take action. I urge you to take one minute today and click here to tell our elected officials that Holder Must Go!
As I wrote yesterday, in a recent Washington Post Opinion article, David Ignatius, an author and Post associate editor wrote…
“‘Holder substitutes his political judgment for his legal judgment, and his political judgment isn’t very good” is the way one White House official put it to a prominent Washington lawyer recently. That criticism was seconded by a half-dozen other leading Washington lawyers I consulted.”
At the heart of Holder’s disingenuous, manipulative abuse of the power granted to the Office of the Attorney General is his willingness to misuse his authority for political and partisan purposes.
Liberty Counsel Action has been calling for congressional action against Attorney General Eric Holder. The time for Congress to take action against Holder’s illegal and agenda-driven policies is NOW!
Even if you have already sent your faxes, please do consider another round. Our Fax Barrage — calling for immediate action against Holder — is resonating on Capitol Hill because of the relentless efforts of grassroots Americans like you!
Just as you and I are held accountable for our actions – so must Eric Holder be held accountable.
Barack Obama and Eric Holder feel they are above the law and the constitutional foundations of our law since they deem it as “flawed.” They believe their ends justify their means in order to advance their leftist agenda.
Eric Holder’s tenure as the Attorney General of The United States and head of the Department of Justice has a history of proven failure in upholding the Constitution. We must put the pressure on Congress and give them no rest until Eric Holder is driven from office!
Click here to schedule your immediate faxes to Congress using Liberty Counsel Action’s powerful Fax Barrage.
We, as grassroots American citizens and people of faith who hold to a higher standard of law, MUST do the right thing and never fail to challenge those who undermine the rule of law.
Mat Staver, Chairman of Liberty Counsel Action.
