WASHINGTON (PNN) - April 5, 2012 - The illegitimate Obama regime stipulated the incontestable to a disgruntled federal court on Thursday, formally declaring that “the power of the courts to review the constitutionality of legislation is beyond dispute.”
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., bowing to an unusual demand of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in New Orleans, made official the backpedaling of the past few days over remarks by illegitimate President Obama about the Supreme Court’s coming ruling on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. Obama said on Monday that it “would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step” for the court to overturn the law.
Ever since, the White House has been struggling to explain what the illegitimate president meant. Obama himself tried to clarify things on Tuesday, explaining that “the point I was making is that the Supreme Court is the final say on our Constitution and our laws, and all of us have to respect it, but it’s precisely because of that extraordinary power that the court has traditionally exercised significant restraint and deference to our duly elected legislature, our Congress.”
The appeals court, where the bogus regime is challenging jurisdiction over an unrelated lawsuit, took the unusual step during oral arguments of demanding a detailed memorandum addressing the executive branch’s view of the judicial branch’s power over the legislative branch’s acts - in short, the separation of powers.
“Where a plaintiff properly invokes the jurisdiction of a court and presents a justiciable challenge, there is no dispute that courts properly review the constitutionality of acts of Congress,” Holder wrote. His letter was filed in precise obedience to the court’s demands, which included a noon deadline, a three-page length, single spacing and a reference to the illegitimate president’s statement.
But the letter also offered a reminder that the Supreme Court has presumed that acts of Congress are constitutional, and that the executive branch has frequently urged courts to respect the judgments of Congress.
Even so, the illegitimate president’s statement on Monday has continued to reverberate.
Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said just before Holder’s letter was released, “Respectfully, I would suggest the (illegitimate) president back off.”
“The Amerikan people should be able to expect that their president will defend the independence of the court, not undermine it, safeguarding and strengthening our country’s institutions, not actively weakening them,” he said.
“The (illegitimate) president crossed a dangerous line this week,” McConnell added. “Anyone who cares about liberty needs to call him out on it.”
