How Much Proof Do You Need?

Obama's Most Perilous Legal Pick

JUDGES should interpret the Constitution according to other nations' legal "norms." Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts. The United States constitutes an "axis of disobedience" along with North Korea and Saddam-era Iraq.

Those are the views of the man on track to become one of the US government's top lawyers: Harold Koh.

President Obama has nominated Koh -- until last week the dean of Yale Law School -- to be the State Department's legal adviser. In that job, Koh would forge a wide range of international agreements on issues from trade to arms control, and help represent our country in such places as the United Nations and the International Court of Justice.

It's a job where you want a strong defender of America's sovereignty. But that's not Koh. He's a fan of "transnational legal process," arguing that the distinctions between US and international law should vanish.

Everything Obama has done has shown his contempt for the Constitution of the United States of America. When will America wake up, how long will we put up with this? It's not just Obama, but congress is doing nothing to reign in his incompetence, there is precious little checking and balancing going on. Hopefully this will change in the next election cycle, but Republicans are almost as bad.

And Jehovah said to Moses, I have seen this people, and behold, it is a stiff-necked people. Exodus 32:9
