Obama & Hillary Fighting to Overturn Democracy!"The Supreme Court of Honduras has constitutional and statutory authority to hear cases against the President of the Republic and many other high officers of the State, to adjudicate and enforce judgments, and to request the assistance of the public forces to enforce its rulings."
—Congressional Research Service, August 2009
And, Writer Mary Anastasia O'Grady adds; "In its actions toward Honduras, the Obama administration is demonstrating contempt for the fundamentals of democracy. Legal scholars are clear on this. "Judicial independence is a central component of any democracy and is crucial to separation of powers, the rule of law and human rights," writes Ahron Barak, the former president of the Supreme Court of Israel and a prominent legal scholar, in his compelling 2006 book, "The Judge in a Democracy."
"The purpose of the separation of powers is to strengthen freedom and prevent the concentration of power in the hands of one government actor in a manner likely to harm the freedom of the individual," Mr. Barak explains—almost as if he is writing about Honduras.
He also warns prophetically about the Chávez style of democracy that has destroyed Venezuela and that Hondurans say they were trying to avoid in their own country. "Democracy is entitled to defend itself from those who seek to use it in order to destroy its very existence," he writes. Americans ought to ask themselves why the Obama administration doesn't seem to agree."
Her entire piece POINTEDLY ASKS HOW HILL & PrezBO can continue this charade.
Indeed! Why has no media person asked the question in light of the obvious delusion Obama & his Sec State are trying to present as fact?
Oh right, the media are in the tank for Obama....except now that veil is beginning to lift as the media recognize a slow-motion train wreck when they see it coming. The questions of Obama yesterday took on a more confrontational appearance than was previous heard or seen.
