By Teri O'Brien -
Like all of you, every once in a while, I find myself in situations where I overhear the irrational brain droppings of low-information blowhards. Of course, these poor dolts don't realize how silly they sound to knowledgeable people when they indulge their irresistible impulse to prove how little they understand about the subjects of their daily pontifications.
Yesterday's topic du jour for this cohort was the refusal of Rowan (Kentucky) County Clerk Kim Davis to issue marriage licenses to two people of the same sex, something that is directly at odds with several Kentucky state statutes, and to a provision of the Kentucky constitution.
Shockingly, these "experts" didn't focus on the question of whether last June's outrageous same-sex marriage decision, Obergefell v. Hodges, was a bastardization of the 14th Amendment, which provision in the U.S. Constitution gives five unelected lawyers declaring themselves rulers of 320 million Americans the right to redefine marriage, or the failure of the Supreme Court to reign in rogue federal judges when this whole same sex marriage foolishness started.
No, instead, initially, they held forth on Ms. Davis' personal life, which includes several marriages, and the birth of twins conceived with a man not her husband, before declaring that "You can't let people defy the law and the Supreme Court."
You mean like Dred Scott, my legal genius friend?
Let's break that statement down.
First, the mockery of Ms. Davis' alleged skankery. I thought that liberals deplored "judgmental" comments about sexual behavior. Isn't that why they demand that we accept any act of anal penetration as normal and natural? It turns out that isn't true, at least not when it comes to Kim Davis. She is a contemptible, hillbilly slut. Apparently, that's what we need to focus on.
Of course, Ms. Davis checkered personal life has nothing to do with the legal issue involved, and whether she deserves to be thrown in federal prison for exercising her First Amendment rights. What's interesting is that many of the same people I heard ripping her for having several marriages, and mocking the parentage of her children, are the ones who were outraged that anyone questioned Bill Clinton's unspeakably immoral behavior, not only during business hours, but in the Oval Office.
"It's just about sex! That's irrelevant to his job performance! No one should have asked him about sex! Waaaaah! Waaaah!" they whined. "What does a guy getting a BJ have to do our country? If Hillary is ok with it, it's not your problem."
I realize that legal issues are a tad complex for the average low-information Democrat supporter who gets his "news" from "Entertainment Tonight," or if he's feeling really intellectual, "Good Moron America."
Let me educate you, children. Bill Clinton lost his law license and was impeached not because of his jaw-droppingly inexcusable sexual behavior, but because he lied under oath. Pure and simple. I know that he's a Clinton, but that's not an excuse recognized under the law, at least for a few minutes longer.
Since he was not only an attorney, but also the chief law enforcement officer in the country at the time, some people, as in those who didn't sleep through 8th grade civics, actually had a problem with what he did, and sought to use the remedy provided by the Founders, impeachment.
As for defying the law, it took a while, but better late than never. Liberals are now officially all about law and order. I am awaiting the outcry from liberals over the many lawless actions taken by King Barack the First, with his mighty pen and phone, including, but not limited to the following, detailed in Ted Cruz excellent summary of the Regime's lawlessness:
- Granting a “hardship” exemption from the individual mandate for people whose health plans were canceled because their plans weren’t Obamacare compliant.
- Delaying the individual mandate for two years.
- Allowed individuals to buy health insurance plans in 2014 that did not comply with Obamacare. Extending this delay until 2016—past the mid-term elections.
- Extending the deadline to enroll in Obamacare.
- Illegally granting businesses a waiver from Obamacare’s employer mandate. Twice.
- Illegally continuing the Obamacare employer contribution for congressional staffs.
- Illegally delaying the Obamacare caps on out-of-pocket healthcare payments.
And that's just his heinous health care scheme.
He also chose not to enforce duly-enacted federal statutes and to enact laws like the "DREAM" Act through unilateral, lawless executive orders, even when Congress refused to do so.
The illegitimate Obergefell decision is a perversion of the 14th Amendment, and a prime example of the judicial tyranny that has been destroying this country for decades. As is their fashion, supporters of the decision tell us "it's the law. Move on."
That's the Left's playbook. Step 1-Do something lawless. Step 2-Declare it a fait accompli. Step 3-Tell anyone who objects to surrender and move on. That's what they said about Bill Clinton's disgraceful episode. That's what they say about the myth of birthright citizenship. Now, they say it about so-called same-sex marriage.
As Justice Scalia eloquently stated in his dissent in Obergefell:
Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court. The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact— and the furthest extension one can even imagine—of the Court’s claimed power to create “liberties” that the Consti- tution and its Amendments neglect to mention. This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected commit- tee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extrav- agant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most im- portant liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.
He also predicted that citizens like Ms. Davis would respond to this lawlessness from the Supreme Court with disobedience.
To summarize, suddenly liberals are appalled by sexual immorality, at least by heterosexuals, and are dedicated to law and order. One thing that hasn't changed; specifically, their desire to lock up anyone who doesn't support their agenda.
