The Obama Administration Strikes Again with Executive Fiat

In an recent Foxnews.com article, the Obama administration through the DEA has managed to halt the death penalty in states by confiscating one of the three drugs used in lethal injection, sodium thiopental.

Instead of allowing states to make the choice for themselves on if they wish the death penalty, the government is using the Drug Enforcement Administration to do their bidding. When asked about this silent campaign, the DEA referred it over to the Department of Justice. To date, they have not responded to questions about this action.

Once again, the administration shows how easy it is to work silently to erode away the rights of states and individuals. I thought the DEA was supposed to fight illegal drug cartels and kick in doors of illegal drug users. I guess things have changed. There is that word again, change.

Candidate Obama promised us change. We certainly see what sort of change he has in mind. In just the short time that he has been president, Obama has used executive orders to get his way and control what he likes and dislikes. Remember, back in February of this year how Obama made the call about the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act. Obama said that it was unconstitutional.

Excuse me, Mr. President, my government textbooks and the Constitution of the United States said that the Supreme Court was the only branch who can rule on the constitutionality of a law. I guess things have really changed.

  1. The federal courts did deem section 3 of DOMA unconstitutional. It is still in the appeals process, headed up by, I believe, the speaker of the house. In this case, it appears that Obama was merely siding with those who de decide conditional matters.
