This Is An Example Of The Stupidity Of This Administration

Being a political junky for years, I’ve seen something I don’t recall ever seeing before.

The U.S. has law enforcement officers suing the Federal Government’s Administration in order to enforce the law.

I don’t know why this is such a tricky concept.  I doubt this will make it through the court system, but it would be nice if it did.  In this country, (and many others) we have 3 branches of government.  They have 3 very distinct roles.

The legislative branch passes laws.  In spite of some apparent thoughts to the contrary, these are not suggestions nor guidelines.  They’re are laws.

The administrative branch is to enforce the laws passed by the legislature.  This typically isn’t referred to as optional.  There is, of course, a remedy when there may be a question to the law passed.  This remedy is availed to both government and private citizens.  We call it the judicial branch.

The judicial branch interprets the laws passed and ensures that they conform to the nation’s constitution.

I don’t recall an instance where lower members of the administrative branch sued the higher members of the administrative branch because they weren’t allowed to execute the laws passed by the legislative branch.  But, today, here we are.  People are being blocked by the executive authority from doing their jobs, which is the enforce the laws.  What’s next in the clown act we call the Obama administration?

    You will never get a democrat to admit to stupidity. Stupid people do not have the capacity to recognize stupidity.

    “Obama administration and state regulators agreed to loosen certain environmental restrictions on the refinery.”

    In one of your other posts Suyts my thoughts were what an earth is going on here should the above comment be true. Can politicians just make laws and then say they don’t apply if we don’t want them to in certain cases. This looks really bad. In this particular case it appears to be a bi-partisan approach.

      Yes, it looks real bad. This administration has a complete disregard for the rule of law. However, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out the differences between this instance and the issue regarding the refinery. The refinery’s “environmental restrictions” though often as interpreted as law are not. The EPA was formed to make regulations which will change over time. The rules that those totalitarian thugs enforce are not codified by the legislative process. In other words, those are simply things used to harass citizens and companies but, they aren’t federal law. Still one can be fined and imprisoned for violating them.

      The difference of course is one is where the public has representation, the other, we do not.
