After eight years of suffering from a lawless POTUS and his lawless Attorney Generals, we finally have an honorable man as AG who actually believes in the rule of law, the Constitution and protecting Americans from illegal alien criminals.

FBI Director James Comey excoriated Hillary Clinton’s use of private email servers to send and receive messages with extremely sensitive classified information and methodically refuted each of Clinton’s subsequent excuses, but Comey ultimately refused to recommend criminal charges against the presumptive Democratic Party nominee, leaving many legal experts stunned.
At its core, the rule of law is about protecting a set of immutable rights that are anchored in our Constitution and birthed by concepts in the Declaration of Independence. It’s one of the most important issues facing our nation. But you probably won’t see the rule of law as a central debate topic in the presidential campaign cycle. Nor will it get headlines or a trending hashtag on Twitter.
The Magna Carta was a key document in establishing the basis for self-government, a written Constitution and the rule of law over the King’s edicts in England and later in America.
Sen. Cruz: Court Decision Major Victory For Rule Of Law, Senate Democrats Should Look Hard At This RulingFeb 18th, 2015 | By fyork
This is a major victory for the rule of law; the District Court’s ruling states that President Obama must now stop implementing these policies in ‘any and all aspects.’ Last summer we saw a humanitarian crisis on our southern border that was a direct consequence of Obama’s previous amnesty. Republicans are now standing together to try to ensure that it never happens again.
A federal judge in Pennsylvania has just slapped down part of Obama’s illegal alien amnesty edict. District Court Judge Arthur Schwab ruled that Obama’s executive order on amnesty for 5 million illegals is invalid and is legislating from the White House.
The audacity of this President to think he can completely destroy the Rule of Law with the stroke of a pen is unfathomable to me. It is unconstitutional, it is cynical, and it violates the will of the American people. Our Republic will not stand if we tolerate a President who is set upon the complete destruction of the Rule of Law.
“The pattern of lawlessness by this Administration should concern every citizen, regardless of party or ideology,” said Sen. Cruz. “Rule of law means that we are a nation ruled by laws, not men. No one—and especially not the president—is above the law. For that reason, the U.S. Constitution imposes on every president the express duty to ‘take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.’
“Today’s unfortunate vote damaged the Senate and was designed to try to change the topic from the millions of Americans losing their jobs and their healthcare because of Obamacare. Just like President Obama promised, ‘if you like your plan, you can keep it,’ so too Harry Reid repeatedly promised he would not use the ‘nuclear option’ to change the Senate rules. Both, sadly, ignored their promises and broke their word. And, in yet another partisan abuse of power, the Democrats are now shamelessly working to pack the DC Circuit, so that President Obama’s lawless disregard of our statutes and Constitution will not be held to account by an impartial judiciary.”
The rule of law is the pillar upon which all our rights as Americans are upheld, it is the only way we can guarantee those rights, and is the greatest protection against injustice ever conceived. That description should make every American proud and humbled, but it should lead us to jealously guard it, not sacrifice it at the altar of political expediency.
