Double standard hernia

If they threw county clerk Kim Davis in jail in Kentucky, then why aren’t all the Obama administration officials in jail for not enforcing immigration law?

And where are all the people telling these officials that they cannot just refuse to follow the law? If they can put a county clerk in jail for that, how much more should they do to Federal Officials who will not enforce the law? So why aren’t officials in sanctuary cities, like San Francisco, in jail for failure to enforce immigration law?

But one clerk can be locked up for not issuing a marriage license. Advocates also decry officials in Texas for not issuing birth certificates to anchor babies. If the governments’ objective was to be inconsistent, and have double standards on law, which is also part of the fourteenth amendment, then it succeeded.

Obama arbitrarily and illegally rewrote immigration law, then had the audacity to complain when a judge ceased their actions.

US Citizenship and Immigration Services:

Update: Due to a federal court order, USCIS will not begin accepting requests for the expansion of DACA on February 18 as originally planned and has suspended implementation of Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents. The court’s temporary injunction, issued February 16, does not affect the existing DACA. Individuals may continue to come forward and request an initial grant of DACA or renewal of DACA under the original guidelines. Please check back for updates. [emphasis mine]

Now they contend that they are being denied, via court order, the ability to enforce the illegal fiat law Obama created. The problems he claimed necessitate the law were caused by failures to enforce the law. Now they have the audacity to claim “the system is broken” and needs new law. Still a clerk gets jailed for a failure to comply with their “law” — which in reality was a Court decision. See where Obama has put this country?

Wyden questions Clapper

At the end of that exchange is where Clapper gives his now famous answer

Wyden asked: Does the NSA collect ANY type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.

Clapper responds: “ No Sir. …Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently, perhaps, collect but not wittingly.”

So as if by some freak accident, they could ”inadvertently collect” data. A court order is pretty big inadvertent. I suppose “perhaps” they just stumbled across a court authorized order and thereby are collecting all the data… all by some accident of course.

You have to laugh that this is the director of intelligence. He earlier tried to hand off questions directed at him to Mueller in FBI.

This Verizon dragnet is the biggest inadvertent data collection that I think I ever heard of. A historic first.

This isn’t one of those “depends on the definition of IS” questions. I am struck then on how much unwitting data collection they are doing. Almost like, maybe, they were intentionally trying to do it? I know that sounds ridiculous, and I apologize.

The point in this is not about the data-collection issue, it is about lying. That would be intentionally not telling the truth, for anyone unsure. There used to be another word….

If Clapper lied about data collection, what are the chances he can lie about them keeping “dossiers” on millions of people? NSA called that a false claim.
