Real America did not sue Arizona
By Chris Adamo
July 29, 2010

Once again, the despicable conduct of the Obama Administration compels us to do a "reality check," this time in regard to the lawsuit filed by Eric Holder's Justice Department against the State of Arizona. Put aside, for the moment, the abject hypocrisy of his selective devotion to the law, wherein criminal actions are ignored or dismissed if committed by such thugs as King Samir Shabazz of the New Black Panthers against common citizens attempting to vote, while decent and honorable efforts to maintain the integrity of one's country or one's state are targeted for legal dissolution.

Of course the ruling was going to be against Arizona. Susan Bolton, the Federal Judge "deciding" the case was a Clinton appointee. Enough said. From the start, this proceeding never had anything to do with the defense of United States law, nor any other constitutional consideration. It was predetermined on the basis of political ideology. Bill Clinton, like Barack Obama is a leftist. And his judicial appointees, without exception, have been likewise.

Yet Holder's duplicity and corruption go much further than even this abominable event, and aside from the immediate danger posed to the people of Arizona, they represent an enormous breach in the structure of this nation's entire legal system. An out of control justice department not only fails to provide safeguards for all decent Americans; it stands as a threat to the preservation of "domestic tranquility," their birthright. And that should be its real goal and purpose.

For starters, the very name attributed to this action, "The United States Versus Arizona" howls with untruth. The foundations of this nation, based in the principles of a constitutionally cohesive federation of sovereign states, would suggest that if the United States Department of Justice were ever to engage in legal activity under such a heading, it might require a shred of support from "We the People" across the nation. But aside from the elitists of the liberal political and media establishment, no such support exists.

Instead, Americans overwhelmingly support the actions of Arizona, and desire to see the law implemented and carried forward to success for their own sakes as well. Arizona's fate depends on it, as does that of all America. The very argument that Arizona is "usurping federal law," on which the Holder case was fabricated, lends credence to the fact that, at one time, national concern over the illegal invasion was sufficient to establish and implement federal statutes to accomplish the very thing Arizona is now attempting to do.

Were federal officials determinedly and diligently confronting the influx of illegal invaders, Arizona law enforcement operations in this jurisdiction might well be perceived as an unnecessary interference. But of course nothing of the kind is happening in the Grand Canyon State. Federal enforcement has been purposefully nonexistent. And it was for that very reason that Arizona took upon itself the task of dealing with the invasion. Holder, in his flowery opposition to SB 1070, engaged in the most blatant degree of deceit imaginable. In a purely political venture, the head of the United States Department of Justice sent his team of lawyers into a courtroom armed with outright lies, but comfortable nevertheless with the fact that such would be sufficient for Bolton to "rule" in their favor.

Did the citizens of the other forty-nine states really want to declare war on Arizona for attempting to protect its borders and restore its legal and cultural integrity? Yet that fallacious supposition was precisely what this federal lawsuit represented. In reality Holder, or more specifically his boss and ideological kindred Barack Obama, no more speak for the rest of this nation on illegal immigration than on socialized healthcare, the economic destruction of the Gulf Coast (not by the oil spill, but from the unwarranted drilling moratorium), nationalization of banks and manufacturing industries, or the fanatical effort to outlaw and suppress free speech prior to the upcoming elections.

It is worthwhile to ponder the degree to which the function of our nation's government has been debased and corrupted, leaving us at this abysmal milestone. Rather than allowing the State of Arizona to "secure the blessings of liberty" to its current generation and their posterity, the ability to do so, formerly unquestioned, has now been thwarted by the action of a single Federal Judge who simply chose not to uphold the law as already written.

In other words, the veracity of state sovereignty is under attack. Once the Obama cabal managed to get their case before the right individual, they summarily declared Arizona unable to defend its own citizens from the criminal destruction and taking of their state. And worst of all, this abomination was committed ostensibly in the name of the rest of the American people.

Arizona's ability to maintain a worthwhile social structure within its own borders is foundational to its proper functioning as a state, and along with similar action from other states, is critical to the future of the nation. If it can be dismissed and revoked with such ease at the whim of a judge, at the bidding of a "Justice" Department that has repeatedly exhibited its contempt for true, even-handed justice, no aspect of real America remains immune to the burgeoning menace.

Selective "enforcement" of the law is a sure sign that those in power are using the nation's entire legal apparatus to their own ends. Holder has engaged in such behavior on multiple occasions, for the expressed purpose of advancing his own perverse, leftist, and by definition, anti-American ideology. That he would do so to stop SB 1070 is an attack on the good people of Arizona. That he would presume to do so in the name of this United States is an enormously greater affront, and in fact a crime, against every decent citizen of this country.
