Lately, the Democrats and Obama supporters in the media (aka the JournOlist) have settled on a new meme that’s been repeated by Senator Harry Reid and Hillary Clinton, among others. Sayeth Senate Majority Leader Reid:
Obamacare is the law of the land, and will remain the law of the land as long as Barack Obama is president of the United States and I am Senate Majority Leader.
There’s the meme:
Obama care is the “law of the land.”
Sayeth ordinary citizen Hillary Clinton:
On the one hand a law was passed, it was upheld by the Supreme Court, it is the law of the land …
For some reason, the progressive left have settled on that argument, that Obamacare is “the law of the land,” AS IF this president and his cronies have ever cared about the law of the land.
The First Amendment is the law of the land. Do Obama and his minions respect that law? No. Just ask James Rosen how the Obama administration respects freedom of the press; or ask Tea Party members how the Obama administration respects freedom of speech and the right to freely assemble; or ask Christian members of the military or the Catholic Church how the Obama administration respects freedom of religion.
The Second Amendment is the law of the land. Do Obama and his minions respect that law? No. Just ask the NRA and law-abiding, gun-carrying citizens how the Obama administration respects the right to keep and bear arms.
Laws against illegal immigration are the law of the land. Do Obama and his minions respect those laws? No. Just ask the good citizens of border states– who deal on a daily basis with being overrun by illegal aliens–how the Obama administration protects our citizens’ rights, when Obama has illegally given executive-order amnesty to all those illegal non-citizens.
The Fourth Amendment is the law of the land. Do Obama and his minions respect that law? No. Just ask anybody (most of us) whose emails and telephone records were grabbed and stored by the NSA how the Obama administration respects our right to be secure from unreasonable, warrantless searches and seizures.
Federal drug laws are the law of the land. Do Obama and his minions respect those laws? No. Just ask the citizens of states like Colorado, where federal officials have been instructed to look the other way when people break drug laws.
The laws of the land that Obama and his minions have chosen to ignore or openly flout are too numerous to mention, but one requires special mention:
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
Article II, Section 1, Clause 5
The law of the land.
If you’re Obama or one of his supporters, it all depends upon the letter of the law whether or not you’ll uphold the law of the land. It all depends.
