Both Barack and Michelle Obama are lawyers barred from practicing law. This is a topic I’ll return to in a moment, but first I want to say a few words about the global “lawfare” that is, and has been, waged against freedom.
Most folks are aware of the communist roots of the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) and its “country cousin” the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center), and quite a few understand that many liberal lawyers become Progressive, or “activist,” judges. (Here and here.)
