I wish they would give us a list

A caller to some radio talk show recently said we should ask the Federal government for a list of the laws they have no intention to enforce. He was talking about illegal immigration but he just as well could have been talking about any number of things.

Charles Nichols did ask about something similar:

The City of Redondo Beach
California has taken the position that persons who exercise their new
constitutional right to openly carry firearms do so at their own “risk.” Putting
aside the fact that openly carrying a firearm was already legal under California
law before the US Supreme Court decisions in Heller and McDonald, I was curious
to see if the Federal Government is going to be as enthusiastic in upholding the
High Court decisions today.

It is their position that,
having been threatened by a police officer, one should file a complaint with the
police department that employs the officer.

I asked, even if the person who
made the threat is the Chief of Police? The DOJ spokesperson answered “Yes.” I
said, “That’s what you call a Catch-22” {no response}. I asked isn’t it the case
that when a police officer acts under the color of authority to deny someones
civil rights that the police officer has committed a federal crime?

The DOJ spokesperson said “We
do not involve ourselves in such cases.”

Since neither self-defense nor
the accompanying right to carry a weapon for that purpose is recognized by the
DOJ, I wonder what their current position is on requiring non-whites to sit at
the back of a bus, or to use separate drinking fountains, or to be denied
lodging in hotels or prohibited from eating in restaurants?

I wish they would give us a list of “such cases”. Having received such a list the first thing I would look up would be crimes involving the use of tar and feathers.

  1. Joe, the “List” was written in 1787. U.S. Constitution, Article 2, Section 3: “He (the President) shall from time to time give to the Congress……He shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.” If its Federal Law, and the Law is Constitutional, it gets enforced. The President gets to delegate the enforcement of the Law through various Agencies and Departments ( Article 2, Section 2), but He and his Cronies do NOT have the right to ‘Selectively Enforce” those they like and those they don’t. If they continue to do so, then Article 2, Section 4, kicks in: “The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors”. By allowing this to go one, BHO is telling everyone that he really is not going to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”, a blatant High Crime if there ever was one.
