South Jersey JBS Freedom Campaign Meetup Message Board › Kathleen Kane Attorney General of Pa. announces she will not support the Def
This is What Happens When We Let Obama Get Away with Creating Laws at the Stroke of a Pen. Obama just wrote an executive order that some feel creates a kill switch for the internet. Obama has no Constitutional authority to create laws at the stroke of a pen with his so-called “executive” orders.
He has NO such authority granted to him under our rule of law, the document he took an oath to uphold and defend.
If we let the executive undermine our laws it sets a very dangerous precedent. A precedent that is followed by others in positions of influence that undermines our freedoms further.
Case in point: Attorney General of Pennsylvania Kathleen G. Kane who announced on July 11, 2013 that she will not defend Pa’s Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) based on the Equal Protection and Due Process Clauses of the United States Constitution.
Now I know some people who believe in gay marriage will applaud her move. However, this is a short sighted point of view. You see, whether or not you defend gay marriage is NOT the point. This declaration on Kane’s part really has little to do with gay marriage if it is allowed to stand. What it really has to do with is the right of the people to govern themselves.
DOMA is a law of the Commonwealth of Pa. Kathleen Kane was elected by the citizens of the Commonwealth State of Pa. to uphold its laws and represent it in court, if necessary. She does NOT have the right to pick and choose the laws the State creates. Her job is to act as a defendant of them. That is what she collects public money to do. She is NOT a judge. She is NOT a jury. She is NOT even a legislator. She is lawyer paid by the people to represent the laws that they must also adhere to.
She invites lawlessness. If an Attorney General (AG) can ignore whatever laws they choose to ignore or not enforce then what good is the system of law? It can disappear on the whims of the next AG.
For example, suppose you support Pro Death (AKA Pro Choice). However, an AG gets elected in your state and decides that he will not support Pro Death but instead will support Pro Life. Therefore, all agencies that are receiving funding under State law are now to be defunded.
Would that be acceptable to you? Would you simply ignore laws that have been previously constructed and passed in your state now because the AG decided it did not fit his personal agenda and belief system?
This is the kind of lawlessness that Kathleen Kane’s decree invites. Is this lawful or lawless? To me it is the rule of the elite deciding for their subjects what is good and right for them, not the rule by law and representation. Are we becoming serfs and servants or do we still have Constitutionally affirmed liberties and rights?
Kathleen Kane, like Obama, invites a dictatorship of the elite. Is that what you want? Them to make decisions for you at their behest? That, you call freedom? Methinks not!
She is not doing her job. Is this what taxpayer money should support? She is paid by the state to work for them. This would be tantamount to a fireman whose job it is to put out fires arriving on the scene to find that the building on fire was a KKK meeting place.
The fireman and the crew decide that since they do not support the KKK, they will simply let it burn down. Fair? Is this what the public is paying the fireman for?
Suppose it were your house and you were a supporter of Ron Paul with a Ron Paul sign in your yard. However, they were supporters of Barack Obama. They decided that they could not in good conscience help a Ron Paul supporter and let your house burn down. Fair?
Well, why not, if we let the Kathleen Kane’s and Barack Obama’s get away with creating their own versions of the law as they decide?
If we allow these kinds of actions to prevail, this is what we have to look forward to, a dictatorship of the elite with us as their subjects.
Don’t know about you, but as a freedom seeking Constitutionalist, it sticks in my craw!
In my mind, the only solution is for the people of Pa. to rise up and cast out Kathleen on her ear asap!
Do your job or get fired is the message that needs to be sent here at both the state and federal levels!
Blog post here with the YouTube video of her announcement. (Now, who do you suppose is applauding her decree?)

It is apparent that Ms. Kane subscribes to the Eric Holder school of law enforcement where the only laws that will be enforced are the ones that I agree with. These are the kinds of acts that foment the roots of dictatorship.
The governor of Pennsylvania should fire Ms. Kane immediately!!!!!
