What’s Wrong W/ This Pic: US Gov’t Has Legitimized Lawlessness

Illegal aliens continuing invading, occupying, and taking over the U.S. with the full cooperation of the American government. This brazen contempt for the law has long-term and far-reaching consequences for the future of the nation. However, it also has an immediate consequence in that it legitimizes lawlessness.

FoxNews.com published, “Sovereign citizen movement rejects gov’t with tactics ranging from mischief to violence,” on January 3 and reported the following:

Dubbed sovereign citizens by law enforcement, the movement numbers anywhere from 80,000 to 300,000 nationwide, according to experts contacted by FoxNews.com. While many live on society’s fringe and pose no immediate threat, police are being trained to be wary of sovereign citizens, knowing that they may not respect cops’ authority and could be prone to violence.

“We’re five years into a major resurgence of the sovereign citizens movement and even with that, most Americans have no idea that the sovereign citizens movement exists,” said Mark Pitcavage, director of investigative research at the Anti-Defamation League. “It has this uncanny ability to fly under the radar screen.”

I don’t support anarchy or the beliefs ascribed to the people in the above story. However, the government is actually providing them with at least some legitimacy since it is now a proponent for anarchy.

The Heritage Foundation recently reported on just how lawless the Obama regime has become in its duty to protect American citizens from alien invaders:

The numbers reported by DHS represent an 11 percent reduction in removals just from 2012. Total deportations under the Obama administration are the lowest since 1973. The administration has tried to manipulate the statistics to artificially inflate deportation numbers by mixing Border Patrol “apprehensions” — when aliens are stopped and turned back at the border — with ICE “deportation” statistics — when aliens from the interior are removed from this country.

These Border Patrol cases were not included in deportation numbers until the Obama administration. Only about one-third of this year’s “deportations,” as reported by DHS, came from the interior. In fact, the administration deported only about 1 percent of the illegal aliens present in the U.S. this year.

And this news comes after Nancy Pelosi stated that, “Our view of the law is that it — if somebody is here without sufficient documentation, that is not reason for deportation.”

Furthermore, the U.S. isn’t just passive in its lawlessness; it actively helps the invasion and takeover of America in the vilest of ways. A federal judge recently issued an order on how the Obama regime is working with Mexican drug cartels to traffic humans:

The Court is quite concerned with the apparent policy of the Department of Homeland Security (hereinafter “HHS”) of completing the criminal missions of individuals who are violating the border security of the United States. Customs and Border Protection agents stopped the Defendant at the border inspection point. She was arrested, and the child was taken into custody. The DHS officials were notified that Salmeron Santos instigated this illegal conduct. Yet, instead of arresting Salmeron Santos for instigating the conspiracy to violate our border security laws, the DHS delivered the child to her–thus successfully completing the mission of the criminal conspiracy. It did not arrest her. It did not prosecute her. It did not even initiate deportation proceedings for her. This DHS policy is a dangerous course of action.

The DHS, instead of enforcing our border security laws, actually assisted the criminal conspiracy in achieving its illegal goals. The Government’s actions were not done in connection with a sting operation or a controlled delivery situation. Rather, the actions it took were directly in furtherance of Y.P.S.’s illegal presence in the United States. It completed the mission of the conspiracy initiated by Salmeron Santos. In summary, instead of enforcing the laws of the United States, the Government took direct steps to help the individuals who violated it. A private citizen would, and should, be prosecuted for this conduct.

So, if the government of the United States of America can actively violate the law through passive and active participation in the illegal alien invasion and takeover of America, then it has established the precedent that lawlessness and anarchy are okay.

Therefore, I don’t know how anyone can pretend to be outraged with the so-called sovereign citizen movement. Again, I don’t support anarchy but the U.S. government has legitimized it through its own contempt for the law.

The U.S. government is lawless in other areas as well (Obamacare immediately comes to mind). And this is a serious problem. I don’t yet know what the solution to this is (our elected officials appear impotent to stop it) but the longer it continues the more problems we are going to have.

And as long as it does continue, everyone else who breaks the law will have the U.S. government to point to and ask, “If the American government doesn’t have to obey the law, why should I?”
