Rowan County Kentucky Clerk, Kim Davis: Jailed by federal marshals
for being a Christian? Political prisoner?
Unfortunately, only one person has been willing to stand up to the federal judiciary and refuse to violate Kentucky's law against homosexual marriage. Kudos to Kim Davis!
Some would argue that she was jailed for defying a federal court order. (Arguably, that's what made her a political prisoner.) Let's take a look at the validity of the federal courts violating Kentucky state law and sovereignty: I agree that Kim Davis violated a court order. But is the US Supreme Court national imposition of homosexual marriage a valid law? Well, it depends on how you look at it. From a Constitutional perspective, it is not enforceable for two reasons:
1. There is no Constitutional federal authority for marriage law.
2. Only congress has the authority to create law.
From a process perspective, the high Court gave itself the
authority to create national policy. The executive branch, which controls the
military and federal marshals, backs up the judiciary's unconstitutional
usurpation of power. Therefore, under the doctrine of "might makes
right," the Court has the power (but not the legal authority) to do
anything they want to. This lends additional evidence to the postulation that the
United States has degenerated into a post Constitutional republic. See the July
edition of The Becker Report for more on
this. (Maybe Kentucky should consider applying "The Becker Doctrine.")
U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning stated that, "Oaths mean things." Bunning also said, "This country has always had disagreements, but what makes this country different from other countries is that we respect the rule of law."
Really? The homosexual marriage issue is one of many where multiple federal judges, up to and including the US Supreme Court, brazenly defied the rule of law and then shoved it down the throat of the rest of the country. I wonder if Judge Bunning has given any thought to why these federal judges ignore their own oaths and the rule of law? Maybe Bunning should consider standing up for the little guy and the people of Kentucky rather than using a badge and a gun to enforce an unconstitutional usurpation of power. As our Constitutional republic continues to devolve, the action of Judge Bunning shows that it's the power of the badge and the gun, rather than the authority of law, that rules.
Should Kim Davis be impeached for violating her oath of office?
Well, I'd be willing to have that discussion right after the impeachment of President Obama, multiple federal judges, and five Supreme Court justices for violating their oaths of office to follow the Constitution.
Are there parallels to Rosa Parks?
In her case, she stood up to a law that was wrong and needed to change. Kim Davis stood up to an illegitimate so-called "law of the land" that is wrong and should be treated as an opinion rather than law.
Is Kim Davis my favorite Democrat?
Not anymore. She just switched to the Republican Party. Welcome home, Kim!
Law of the land? It's time to move on?
Several presidential candidates have taken this position. That's not the kind of leadership I'm looking for.
