“Rule of law” is breaking down in the United States and those leading the revolt against “rule of law” are those in government and those who aspire to be leaders. Both those in government and those aspirants are claiming the law does not apply to them. Progressives, who have always disdained the concept of “rule of law” are in support of this movement.
The Justice Department moved Tuesday to fight a federal judge’s order that its lawyers undergo mandatory ethics training, digging in after it was learned that DOJ attorneys knowing and willfully lied to a federal judge several times when arguing over Obama's immigration executive actions.
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, of Texas, had issued the order earlier this month, after learning DOJ attorneys misled him about the implementation of Obama’s executive orders on illegal immigrants. Attorneys had told Hanen that a key component – an expansion of a 2012 program to protect illegal immigrants from deportation if they were brought to the U.S. as children – hadn’t been implemented. But officials later revealed they had given more than 108,000 people three-year reprieves from deportation under the expanded rules, as well as work permits.
Many in the legal profession believe Judge Hanen was very generous in his ruling. One of the most important elements of our legal system is that a Judge is able to belief declarative statements made by attorneys. The attorneys for the DOJ, the chief law enforcement agency of our government, knowingly and willfully violated this basic premise of the legal system.
A State Department watchdog concluded that Hillary Clinton failed to comply with the agency’s policies on records while using a personal email server that was not — and, officials say, would never have been — approved by agency officials.
“Secretary Clinton should have preserved any Federal records she created and received on her personal account by printing and filing those records with the related files in the Office of the Secretary,” the report states. “At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act." This would also be a violation of Federal Law.
The report also notes that she had an "obligation to discuss using her personal email account" but did not get permission from the people who would have needed to approve the technology, who said they would not have done so, if they had been asked.
Despite this scathing report, Clinton maintains she did nothing wrong and followed all the policies, procedures, and laws. An indictment should follow shortly, but this regime and its DOJ have never let the facts get in the way of promoting their progressive agenda.
We now learn that it is not only the Marxist/Progressive government that adheres to the philosophy that the ends always justify the means no matter how egregious are those means. Most of the Marxist/Progressives in the United States agree with Marx that all principles of right and wrong are to be ignored if they might jeopardize the fundamental transformation to a Marxist totalitarian state.
Most voters continue to believe likely Democrat (Marxist/Progressive) nominee Hillary Clinton is a lawbreaker, but half of all voters also say a felony indictment shouldn’t stop her campaign for the presidency. Among Democrat (Marxist/Progressive) voters, 71% believe Clinton should keep running under any circumstances.
The Obama regime has consistently chosen to ignore the law in order to advance the fundamental transformation Obama promised. Many members of the regime have gone before congress and knowingly lied. This is a felony. Numerous people from the IRS and the DOJ have lied to congress including Holder while he was Attorney General. Not one has been prosecuted or even rebuked. Hillary has broken the law and placed top security information in jeopardy. The DOJ has said it is OK if our attorneys lie to a judge. Most egregious of all is that 71% of the Marxist/Progressive Party says “rule of law” is not important. We should not be surprised I guess, because we know it is the goal of Obama and the Democrats (Marxist/Progressives) to fundamentally transform the United States into a Marxist totalitarian state.
