The Post points out 2 lies of Obama’s, and we can only wait for the Executive Order to be signed forcing Chaplains to marry gays or be tossed out. It is coming as sure as the sun rises in the East.
If it were unnecessary and ill advised, why did Obama even mention it.No It’s coming, probably before the year is out.
Looks to me like Signing Statements, as a guide to executive agencies in a wink-wink-nudge-nudge manner, acts just like an EO.
My administration remains fully committed to continuing the successful implementation of the repeal of Dont Ask, Dont Tell, and to protecting the rights of gay and lesbian service members; Section 533 will not alter that,
This Signing Statement, given the above SS wording, is merely advance notice of following the DADT repeal rather than this law - he is deeming Section 533 unconstitutional, null and void.
Basically, he is applying the notion of line-item-veto, even though that has already been determined time and time again unconstitutional.
Once again, Ø shreds the Constitution. As he does every chance he gets.
An EO won’t be necessary and I expect that the conscience clause will simply be ignored.
Chaplains who “cause trouble” will simply be passed over for promotion and otherwise drummed out, paving the way for chaplains who are on board with Obama’s agenda.
