Julius Caesar is credited with officially killing the Roman Republic by naming himself "Imperator". The compliant Senate submitted without protest, choosing instead to pass numerous edicts praising Caesar with various honors.
As American troops purportedly fight to make the world safe for Democracy, America's President has moved us one major step forward towards killing the American Republic. You see, we used to have three branches of government in this country:
1. The Legislative Branch (Congress): Which made laws, approves treaties, declares war and allocates money.
2. The Judicial Branch (Supreme Court): Which settled differences between the States. "Judicial Review", or the ability to decide whether a law was Constitutional or not, emerged as an assumed power under "Marbury vs. Madison". It went unchallenged by the Executive and Legislative Branch at the time.
3. The Executive Branch (President): Which signed bills into law, enforced Federal laws and managed the military.
All branches were created equal, and the Constitution established both a "Separation of Powers", as well as a system of checks and balances, to make sure no branch emerged as a dictatorship. The Founding Fathers feared another Julius Caesar. Things have definitely changed:
1. The Legislative Branch (Congress): Has unlawfully ceded its law-making powers to the Executive Branch which rules through various Bureaucrats called Czars (Caesars) and Executive Decree.
2. TheJudicial Branch (Supreme Court): Has refused to defend the Constitution's "Separation of Powers" and Checks and Balances.
3. The Executive Branch: Is now a dictatorship that has been given power by Congress and the Supreme Court to rule by decree.
This has been made possible by an educational system controlled by the Executive Branch that is no longer designed to teach American citizens their role in defending the Republic, Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Now, just when you thought things couldn't get any worse, they just did.
"The Obama administration said Wednesday that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and the Justice Department will no longer support it. The Defense of Marriage Act is a federal law defining marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman.
Attorney General Eric Holder sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner stating, "Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act ... as applied to same-sex couples who are legally married under state law, violates the equal protection component of the Fifth Amendment."
"The President and I have concluded that classifications based on sexual orientation warrant heightened scrutiny and that, as applied to same-sex couples legally married under state law, Section 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional," Holder wrote.
According to the letter, President Obama made his decision after he reviewed two cases in federal appeals courts and found them to be in violation of the Constitution. In light of a "documented history of discrimination," among other factors, Obama concluded that discriminatory treatment based on sexual orientation should be "subject to a heightened standard of scrutiny," which the Defense of Marriage Act does not meet."

NASA, we have a problem. First of all, only the Supreme Court, not the President, can decide on the "Constitutionality" of laws passed by Congress. This is called the "Separation of Powers" and is the primary purpose for having a Constitution. Neither the President nor his appointed Attorney General have the Constitutional right to decide what laws passed by Congress, and signed by a previous President, they will enforce.
Congress passes laws. The President enforces those laws. If the President has a problem with a law his Attorney General can take that problem to the Supreme Court for a ruling on the Constitutionality of the law. The problem Obama has is that the Supreme Court has already decided that this particular law is perfectly legal. A Congress that wasn't corrupt would call this grounds for impeachment.
This is what happens when you elect a President that was born and raised in a foreign country without a Constitutional tradition. This is also what happens when you let Satanic Psychopaths transform your Republic into a Global Dictatorship.
Freedom of Speech and of the Press is a right because they both protect us from tyranny.
Unfortunately, our press is owned by the likes of Mitt Romney and others that seek to increase the powers of tyrants and thieves, in the hopes that one day they can wear Caesar's crown. Those that expect Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and other Romney "Clear Channel" employees to halt their bosses' mad rush towards global dictatorship don't understand the power of a regular paycheck, or the Council on Foreign Relations for that matter.
Sadly, Obama is nothing more than the "Fall Guy". A puppet on the strings of the Illuminati Banksters. A dupe being used to foment racial division and hatred in America. Those that pine for his replacement need to start questioning who brought this guy into power in the first place, and for what sinister purposes. They also need to understand that the Agenda will go forward, with or without "His Most Exalted Majesty: Obamination Rex".
