Thanks Obama, but only the Supreme Court can say it is unconstitutional.
“A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco...”
Did you have to read any more than this? The Obama vote-building machine continues to crank.
“must be immediately lifted now that the Obama administration says its unconstitutional to treat gay Americans differently under the law.”
Now I’m not a lawyer and I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn last night, but this doesn’t make sense.
Does a federal court have any authority over the policies of the US military?
anyone watch Frontline last night?? i never watch it but was flipping through the channels and saw it was about the wikileaks and stopped for a minute- which turned into a half hour....
thehy went through the history of the downloading of confidential material by daniel manning and one theme rang through the entire episode- manning was downloading the info because he was angry he had been jilted by his gay friend, not in the military, and wanted to do something “huge”...the majority of the theft by manning happened after he found out on facebook his man-lover had jilted him- he was nothing more than an angry homo...
why bring this up? all i could think about was the repeal of DADT and the cause of manning’s actions as i watched last night...
The 9th circuit court? This verdict is about the only thing nowadays that is totally “expected”.
this is actually encouraging; the 9th circuit is reversed more than any federal court in the land.
If they cannot use DADT they must revert to the prior, in the abcense of a new reg.
A later conservative president may state that the violation of the will of the people by a court forcing gay marriage is unconstitutional. Somehow, I don’t think at that time the 9th will give deference to the authority of the President to declare something unconstitutional.
Yes, the most over-turned circuit in the country, stumbles into another bunch of left-wing crap.
I don’t get it
It WAS repealed and the military is working to make sure it is repealed but the military said it would take time
so it has been what? 2 mons but the Homo 9th court thinks that isn’t fast enough?
Hate to tell you, but the barbarians are already running the country. A panel of them just gave this order.
because Obama passed an edict it is now law?
Judges should have to be recertified every year.
Well, at least they are being honest in that they admit their analysis begins and ends with “whatever Obama tells us to do”.
How convenient, just as the SCOTUS starts its Summer recess.
Devolution. And some atheists think we’re evolving into a higher species? Whatta joke.
Part of my email from Family Research Council:
“Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) has another request. Together with 31 other members, the Marine veteran has asked the President to delay the certification of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal until the military has an opportunity to clear up the mass confusion sparked by the policy change.
“Merely providing ‘training and educational’ briefs to our service members is not enough to justi fy moving forward with certification when consequential policy and regulatory changes associated with implementation must be reviewed by Congress under its oversight function... It is imperative that Congress have the ability to exercise its authority...” Anything less, he writes, is irresponsible.”
At least at my command, everyone has had mandatory DADT “repeal” training.
Just from the nature of the training, I can tell there are huge cans of worms being opened right now, if the policy isn’t reversed.
A true repeal of DADT would be a return to the days when potential recruits were asked, and an affirmative answer kept them from joining. We’re not seeing a repeal. We’re seeing a brand new policy. Using the language that it’s a “repeal” helps to create a belief that gays were always allowed into the military until Clinton instituted DADT. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Clinton’s DADT policy was a carrot for the gays: he couldn’t actually repeal the ban on gays in the military, so he did what he could to placate the gay lobby by preventing recruiters from asking about it.
Choosing language to frame an issue to make it seem like the issue historically was the way the left wants it to be now is a favorite Orwellian tactic of the left. Those of us on the right should avoid repeating the left’s propaganda tactics.
