States Rights Hypocrisy

Posted on Updated on

In an email to supporters sent right after his interview where he came out in favor of gay marriage, Obama wrote:

I believe that in the eyes of the law, all Americans should be treated equally. And where states enact same-sex marriage, no federal act should invalidate them.”

In the interview he seems to embrace the position that “states should decide” and he hopes that they will all eventually come around to seeing things his way.

Contrary to Obama’s early position to leave medical marijuana dispensaries alone, which is a classic states rights issue, his administration has conducted over 200 raids on medical marijuana facilities in states where they are legal. Even one of the most despicable members of Congress and of his own party, Nancy Pelosi, has condemned the raids. It was just to appease her constituents but still it was a rare moment.

So it seems that Barry is going to pick and choose the issues that are states rights whenever and however it suits his fancy. Didn’t he tell us he was a constitutional lawyer?

It would be the same with Romney. On marijuana he said  “Marijuana should not be legal in this country,”  calling pot a “gateway drug.”

Along the same line, a bipartisan coalition of house members tried to defund Obama’s medical marijuana raids by attaching an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2013 Commerce, Justice, State Appropriations bill. It failed due to overwhelming Republican opposition. 

Most of those Republicans would be the first to tell you they are all for constitutional states rights on all issues but they would be lying.

For example, my own rep, Diane Black, said before her election in 2010 “We’ve got to give back to states the 10th amendment rights for them to be sovereign.” She voted no on the amendment to defund the raids. Doesn’t that make her a liar and a hypocrite? She wouldn’t be in congress if she wasn’t.

    Hi Kenny,Ho-bama is hungry for shekel opps dollar in order to save his butt. President Obama’s announcement Wednesday that he supports same-sex marriage highlights the importance of the gay community to his re-election effort, which could get a boost in donations as a result.Many of Obama’s key financial supporters are gay–including finance director Rufus Gifford and Democratic National Committee treasurer Andrew Tobias–and the campaign has regularly held fundraisers focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender donors…….Some liberal gay donors had threatened to withhold contributions over Obama’s stance on gay marriage as well as his administration’s decision to shelve an executive order banning sexual-identity discrimination by federal contractors……The Advocate, a publication focused on the gay community, assembled a list of “Obama’s Power Gays” last year that included many of his biggest fundraisers. In addition to Perlman and others, the Advocate list included Pfizer executive Sally Susman ($500,000-plus); activist Kevin Jennings ($50,000 to $100,000); and Texas philanthropist Eugene Sepulveda ($500,000-plus). at the donrr list, all "muzzie" sounding names.

    My favourite source for alternative news, with James Corbett reporting on his blog from Japan has suddenly gone down. Does anyone know what happened to it? If he is permanently gone from the blogosphere it will be a tremendous loss…he is one of the most courageous bloggers around today. Please check into this and post what is going on with James Corbett. Thanks.

    media monarchy listed over on the right is a partner with Corbett so if it's anything other than a glitch I think they will report it.

    Makes me wonder if CCA is a donor to Black (and reTHUGlicans in general).

    I didn't see CCA on her list but there are plenty of big pharma and medical insurance companies that give her a nudge to their direction.'s husband runs a drug testing company. Big conflict of interest. She should never even get a vote on these kind of issues.

    Remember Joe Bannister ? In the summer of 2000 in Denver I met Dean Stonier, Joe Bannister, Brian Desborough, Dr. Randall Eaton, Carl Parker….and many others at the Global Sciences Conference.Eustace arrived without his luggage, which did arrive later, so we went to eat a late lunch, and visited…his "ensemble" was eclectic – Plaid shirt & striped shorts…green socks…Devvy Kidd looked askance restraining an unflattering comment.Speaking of Hypocritical nonviolence…Let's all revisit the "Book of Myths" for the Children of Israel who have never been "Proselytes" to Talmudic Judaism…Genesis 1 for Instance mentions the Gift from the Creator 3 Times…"The GREEN HERB BEARING SEED"…surely this can not be the Hemp plant for which there are literally thousands of uses …not the least of which is helping females endure the CURSE …associated with childbirth since as Alice Cooper so eloquently opined…ONLY WOMEN BLEED…?Question : Has anyone ever seen a cartoon character change a flat tire ?Please let me introduce Sir Richard McDonald… my own personal experience…let me add that Richard K. Armey gives incomplete lectures in Economics….completely omitting the Talmudic Terrorist SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN = FEDERAL RESERVE…official counterfeiting economic terrorists that Hijacked the Ship of state for the children of the devil and their Ashkenazim "PROSELYTES"……why "Dick" Armey even as HOUSE MAJORITY "leader" failed miserably to bring to "Justice" the MASS MURDERERS of the 7th Day Adventist {Christian} "Branch Davidians"…wonder why ? – – {"Jewish" influence?}Cartoon characters can vote, but really what "Good" does that do ?My humble "opinion" is a plant is not "our" enemy, however the economic terrorists printing currency, owning the media and running a crack house called Congress, and manufacturing a stool sculpture deity cult compound "Jewish" state – falsely called Israel are…most all historically provable facts would lead a rational observer to agree…if in good faith they actually cared about Truth.Oh yeah, I visited with Aaron Russo back in the summer of '95 about doing a film on Waco…he eventually declined, and ran for Governor of Nevada, doing the MAD AS HELL presentation, and then – America : From Freedom to Fascism.*registering to "vote" is a de facto admission of non compos mentis….!Maybe the hypocrites are going in the ovens with the Tares as they certainly aid & abet the workers of iniquity…Woe unto Ye Hypocrites…Lawyers & Scribes..!!!P.S. "Gay" defined is happy…sodomites, purveyors of unnatural behviour, behaviour contrary to the natural order are not really happy….no zionazi porch monkey can ipso facto declare the Truth to be false….and make it so….Jonathan Azaziah notwithstanding…..Yeahway….There were never any so-called "Jews" in the Old Testament…how dare I….say that….[See & Listen – Stone of Destiny : Steven McDonald]Cheers….one toke over the line…Davy

    Marijuana saves lives. If it were readily available not only would people with various medical ailments benefit greatly, but countless alcoholics and hard drug abusers(and of course Big Pharma pill poppers) would benefit and still be alive if they were able to stick to pot. This is a human rights issue. Its about saving lives as much as its about personal liberty. Fuck Diane Black, the heartless bitch.
