DOJ sends letter to Universities telling them to ignore SCOTUS ruling on using race in admissions…
The Right Scoop ^ | 10/07/2013 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 10/07/2013 12:47:52 PM PDT by blueyon

I was listening to Attorney Joe DiGenova this morning on WMAL and he pointed out how the DOJ had recently sent a letter to universities telling them they could ignore the June ruling by the Supreme Court on using race in admissions. The Supreme Court, in a nearly unanimous ruling, said that universities could use race in admissions but not as a dominant factor. But in this letter the DOJ is instructing universities to continue with the same racial preferences that the Supreme Court had just barred them from using:

WSJ – Obama Administration regulators have made a specialty of ignoring Congressional intent, and even black-letter law. Now they’re showing the same disdain for the Supreme Court with advice to universities about interpreting racial preferences in the wake of June’s Fisher v. University of Texas ruling.

In a September 27 letter to university presidents, civil rights officials from the Departments of Justice and Education wrote that the Court’s decision in Fisher means that universities can continue with their same racial-preference policies. According to the Administration’s version of events, the ruling was merely a tweak on 2003′s Grutter v. Bollinger decision that racial preferences could be used to achieve “diversity” on campus.

… That must be news to the Supreme Court, which in an 8-1 opinion by Justice Anthony Kennedy rebuked Texas precisely because it had failed to heed Grutter. That decision said schools could use race in admissions but not as a dominant factor.

Does that mean that we can send letters to everyone we can think to disregard Obamacare?

Sounds like the DOJ is expecting a ruling in favor of Michigan voters this month.

Then we can ignore the SCOTUS rulings on Obamacare, gun control, etc.

IS THIS REALLY where Obama wants to go with this??? If this is the case, get ready Obama and Holder, this will fly in your face like the fist of angry God.

Doesn’t this fall under the legal definition of malfeasance? The author of this policy is guilty of a criminal offense, not to mention liable for civil damages.

“So in other words, this administration is convinced you minorities are so incompetent and unintelligent that you MUST rely on Government imposed discrimination.”

Absolutely; it is government-sanctioned genetic/gender inferiority. Somehow private citizens are expected to treat certain minorities and women as equals while the government itself forbids it.

In the long run, while the financial burden is felt by white men, the permanent damage is done to those who will never be able to interface with them on equal footing (due to government interference). I am justifiably suspicious of anyone who could “check a box”, and overly confident in anyone who can’t, because of these policies.

The Constitution is dead. The executive branch no longer recognizes any limits on its power as opposed to the other branches of government, nor any on its power over the people.

I would point out that the death of the Constitution came with the full participation of the media, who were among the first institutions protected by the Constitution. Now they are just the propaganda arm of the communist government of the United States.

Andrew Jackson blew off SCOTUS and got away with it.

Marbury v. Madison did not come with any sort of enforcement mechanism.

You must obey the “settled law of the land”, if King Obama says so (Obamacare),

But if King Obama doesn’t like the settled law of the land, then just ignore it, because he says so!

There is no rule of law anymore, at the federal level.
