‘Tar. Feathers. Some Assembly Required’
The following is a story of Contempt…
President Obama’s lawyers admitted to a federal judge late Thursday that they had broken the court’s injunction halting the administration’s new deportation amnesty, issuing thousands of work permits even after Judge Andrew S. Hanen had ordered the program stopped.
The stunning admission, filed just before midnight in Texas, where the case is being heard, is the latest misstep for the administration’s lawyers, who are facing possible sanctions by Judge Hanen for their continued problems in arguing the case.
The Justice Department lawyers said Homeland Security, which is the defendant in the case, told them Wednesday that an immigration agency had approved about 2,000 applications for three-year work permits, which was part of Mr. Obama’s new amnesty, even after Judge Hanen issued his Feb. 16 injunction halting the entire program.
Top Obama officials, including Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, had repeatedly assured Congress they had fully halted the program and were complying with the order.
“The government sincerely regrets these circumstances and is taking immediate steps to remedy these erroneous three-year terms,” the administration lawyers said.
Nothing significant will happen to these Despotic Apparatchiks.
If they have to publicly be ‘lashed’ it will be with a wet noodle, as it were, and they will be given a sinecure in some Leftist ‘non-profit’.
There is no Law anymore and Order is starting to break down — the only unknown being how quickly will the descent into Chaos be.
More from the same report:
Sen. Charles E. Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said it was “remarkable” that the administration kept approving some applications.
“The last time I checked, injunctions are not mere suggestions. They are not optional,” the Iowa Republican said. “This disregard for the court’s action is unacceptable and disturbing, especially after Secretary Johnson’s assurances that his agency would honor the injunction.”
Yeah, Senator, and — pardon my French [which is getting quite a workout these days around here] — what the fuck are you going to do about it that really means something? [Need I answer this, Dear Readers?]
I mentioned at the start of this post that this is a story of Contempt.
Contempt for the Law. Contempt for The Constitution. Contempt for Western Civilization.
The Left has Contempt for every aspect of Western Civilization, but too many on the Right refuse to acknowledge this Fact. This is how Civilizations fall and dark ages arise.
