How did this man:

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy

together with these 4 people:

Supreme Court Justices Ginsburg, Beyer, Soyotmayor and Kagan

with the cooperation of this man:

KY Governor Steve Beshear

along with his accomplice and Democrat gubernatorial candidate/successor:

KY Attorney General Jack Conway

all work together to put this Christian woman in jail:

KY County Clerk Kim Davis

Some people are blaming Federal Judge David Bunning for having jailed Kim Davis. I believe that thinking misses the real story.

Why was Kim Davis jailed?

Ms. Davis was jailed for contempt of court. Why was she charged with contempt? Because she did not do what the court ordered her to do. What was she ordered to do? She was ordered to "follow the law" and issue marriage licenses, including licenses to people of the same sex who wanted to get married. Issuing marriage licenses is a responsibility given to County Clerks by Kentucky state law.

But the real law breakers here are the 5 supreme court justices pictured above.

This gang of 5 each took an oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution. They violated that oath of office. Instead of defending the Constitution, these judges used their powers as judges to pervert and twist that law. They declared, by legal opinion, that the law said something that the authors of the law never meant or intended it to say. We are told that judges are not supposed to make law, they are part of the process of enforcement, telling those under their responsibility what the law says and means.

These judges have turned the law on it's head.

Worse, these judges have put people of religious faith in a position where they are being compelled to act in violation of their faith. The first amendment, which specifically was written to protect those who hold such religious convictions from being ordered to violate those convictions, has been IGNORED by these same judges in their reckless and perverted ruling.

Am I being harsh? Consider the opinion of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia in his dissent to this decision:

    This is a naked judicial claim to legislative—indeed, super-legislative—power; a claim fundamentally at odds with our system of government. Except as limited by a constitutional prohibition agreed to by the People, the States are free to adopt whatever laws they like, even those that offend the esteemed Justices’ “reasoned judgment.” A system of government that makes the People subordinate to a committee of nine unelected lawyers does not deserve to be called a democracy. [my emphasis added]

What can be done about judges who act outside the law?

The Constitution provides that such judges can be impeached then subject to trial by senate. If found guilty they can then be removed from office. Unfortunately the impeachment of these liberal judges is impossible. While it takes only a simple majority of the U.S. House of Representatives to bring impeachment charges, it then requires a vote of 2/3 of U.S. Senate to convict and remove the impeached judge. That is never going to happen. The members of the senate who support gay marriage are in excess of 1/3 of the Senate. So a simple majority of liberal judges (5 out of 9), together with a minority of U.S. senators (34 out of 100), can allow the Constitution to be trampled.

But that's where the spineless governor of Kentucky, and his spineless Attorney General, got stuck in the backwash of this unlawful Supreme Court decision.

Kim Davis is a duly elected official, a county clerk. The governor can't fire her. Ms. Davis, just like those same Supreme Court judges, can only be removed from office by impeachment by the Kentucky State House, followed by a trial and conviction by the Senate. But the House and Senate will not meet again until 2016, more than 4 months from now. Governor Beshear has the power to call back the legislature, to deal with this matter immediately, but he is refusing to do so. Instead, Governor Beshear is happy to let Ms. Davis rot in jail.

The Democrat candidate for Beshear's job, KY Attorney General Jack Conway, has been virtually silent in this matter. Conway would only say, prior to Kim Davis' release, that she should follow the law.

After the release of Ms. Davis, her office began issuing marriage licenses WITHOUT her name on them. Her name is no longer on the license, even though the license requires it. Note this from a Washington Post story:

So the very same license, previously issued by the state, the one which Kim Davis would not allow her name to appear on, is now having the required content of that license altered by the county office. How can anyone do that? After all, it is NOT the job of a county office to manipulate and change state documents.

The newspaper asked the state Attorney General Jack Conway about this. Here is what they were told:

Jack Conway is a useless Attorney General. When he told Kim Davis to "follow the law", one was left to wonder what law Jack Conway was referring to. Was Jack Conway referring to Kim Davis' first amendment religious protections, that law? Or was Jack Conway referring to a gay marriage law concocted and un-democratically imposed by 5 lawless Supreme Court judges? Now that Ms. Davis' office has altered the state document, clearly violating the law, Jack Conway's office says that was OK. Really? Why then did the Jack Conway (remember, this guy is the Attorney General) not issue instructions to the County, to do that before Kim Davis had to go through a federal court process and spend her Labor Day weekend in jail? And what happened to "follow the law"?

Is Conway ignorant, stupid or just lawless?

Spineless Beshear needs to re-convene the KY legislasture. Lawless Conway should demand that Beshear re-convene the KY legislature so that Kentucky clerks can "follow the law". But these two were quite happy to let a fellow Democrat (yes, Kim Davis is a Democrat) spend her Labor Day weekend in jail for her religious beliefs and for defending the Constitution of the State of Kentucky. By contrast, it is quite clear that is something Jack Conway has no interest in doing.

Eventually, at some point, when the legislature meets, it has two options:

    1.    It can impeach and convict Kim Davis and remove her from office. The problem is there may not be the votes to impeach, and then there may not be the votes to convict.

    2.    It can change the law regarding the issuance of marriage licenses, and remove the responsibility for the issuance of marriage licenses from the county clerks. Other states have already done that making that the most likely course of action.

But will spineless Steve Beshear do that before the 2015 Kentucky election? Will Jack Conway call on his mentor and friend to do that? Not likely. Why? Because these two liberal Democrats like the gay marriage law. It doesn't matter that the majority of Kentucky voters find it unacceptable, and it doesn't matter that Kentucky passed a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a relationship between one man and one woman.

Simply put, Steve Beshear and Jack Conway like the fact that 5 supreme court judges imposed this liberal agenda on the residents of the state of Kentucky.

Here is why Beshear doesn't want the legislature to decide this before Conway's bid for governor is decided on November 3rd:

Calling back the legislature, and making the members vote on this issue, would shine a big spotlight on those politicians in Kentucky who support gay marriage, an unwelcome spotlight for Democrats who don't want their left wing social agenda to become known by their constituents.

But the pressure has been taken off Beshear and Conway, by a simple alteration of a state document, by a county employee. Jack Conway has now said that the alteration is just fine. So much for "follow the law".

When a Democrat like Jack Conway says follow the law, he really means follow the laws I like, and ignore the one's that I don't like. And one thing is for sure, Jack Conway likes gay marriage, and he's not going to let little things like the law slow him down.

In conclusion, I hope that Kentucky voters, who are social conservatives, finally wake up and recognize that the Democrat party is the enemy of their convictions. Conservative Democrats need to re-register as Republicans. We may not be able to do much about 5 liberal judges on the Supreme Court of the United States, but Kentucky voters need to stop electing lawless liberals who aid and abet a perverted liberal social agenda in Kentucky.
