In April, the Justice Department sent a letter to the Oklahoma attorney general, hinting that it would withhold federal funding if Oklahoma state officials vote on an English-only referendum. In response, the state's congressional delegation wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, questioning the timing of the letter and demanding to know if Oklahoma was being singled out. They also questioned what federal funds Holder was threatening to withhold.
 
Aloysius Hogan, a spokesman for English First, says there are already a number of states that have passed English-only referendums.
 
"It's important to note that 31 states have English as the official language, not to mention over 50 nations worldwide," he points out. "So all of these entities supposedly would be subject to denial of federal financial assistance, according to the Equal Justice question."
 
The Obama administration appears more interested in supporting the interests of radical fringe groups, according to Hogan.

In the past, 'English Only" was used to unify diverse immigrant groups.  It was painful for some, but they adapted, and their children learned English.

If Obama promotes education, why isn't he promoting English?  Why not adapt to the culture and language of the country in which you live?

Obama’s Imperial Decree: Target Oklahoma

The state of Oklahoma is now the target of a direct challenge from US Attorney General Eric Holder, who is using the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as justification to violate Oklahoma’s sovereignty as affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution.

...

“What it indicates is the Federal Government’s contempt for the states, in this case Oklahoma, and for the idea of federal — as opposed to national — government. AG Holder believes that Oklahoma is an administrative subdivision of the USA, and that it is perfectly right for him to coerce Oklahomans to do his will. Who cares whether he has ever been to Oklahoma, met an Oklahoman, or thought about Oklahoma?” said Kevin Gutzman, an American historian and New York Times bestselling author.

...Recently, federal firearms licensees in Tennessee and Montana received a letter from another Federal agency, the ATF, who had also issued a decree wrought with hubris - claims by the Federal government of their legal supremacy across the land.

DESTROYING LOCAL GOVERNMENT

“Both of these letters, particularly this letter to the Attorney General of Oklahoma, are very officious,” observed Rob Natelson, professor of law at the University of Montana.  “It reminds one eerily of the kinds of communications that started to come out from the Emperor to the local cities of the Roman Empire, beginning the course of the ultimate destruction of local government.”

Obamacare, destruction of state control over insurance and business (including banking), schools, hospitals...what is next?

People in the US are coming together by the thousands, demanding decentralization and nullification of Federal powers. Never before have the political elites had to contend with a non-partisan political force on such a massive scale.  A storm seems to be brewing; a maelstrom of everyday Americans rallying around the document designed to keep the government in fear of the people - instead of the other way around.
