Obama Once Again Sides With Tyranny Over Democracy, This Time in Honduras

President Barack Obama says the weekend ouster of Honduran leader Manuel Zelaya was a "not legal" coup and that he remains the country's president.

However, what Obama and the liberal press are calling a "coup" is nothing of the sort.

The so-called military coup in Honduras was a successful effort by Honduran patriots to preserve their constitutional system of government from an international alliance of communists and socialists backed by Iran. Not surprisingly, America's President has come down on the anti-American side.

Zelaya, in office since 2006, was removed on Sunday after he angered the judiciary, Congress and the army by seeking constitutional changes that would allow presidents to seek re-election beyond a four-year term.

The Honduran Congress named an interim president, Roberto Micheletti, and the country's Supreme Court said it had ordered the army to remove Zelaya.

Constitutions by their very nature are hard to change. That's the point of a constitutional Democracy.

Zelaya acted as if he were above the law, there is no doubt. While Honduran law allows for a constitutional rewrite, the power to open that door does not lie with the president. A constituent assembly can only be called through a national referendum approved by its Congress.

Zelaya declared the vote on his own and had Hugo Chávez ship him the necessary ballots from Venezuela. The Supreme Court ruled his referendum unconstitutional, and it instructed the military not to carry out the logistics of the vote as it normally would do.

In this case, as with the case of the Iranian protectors, President Obama has sided with tyrants against the democratic process.

If all of this is news to you, consider yourself a victim of the Obama-infatuated media.
