    Obama Warns ‘Unelected’ Supremes: Overturning My Law Would be ‘Judicial Activism’

    Obama Warns ‘Unelected’ Supremes: Overturning My Law Would be ‘Judicial Activism’

    President Obama has waded into the legal battle surrounding his landmark health care law with a stern warning to the Supreme Court not to overturn it. Specifically, Obama argues that the Supreme Court deciding in such a way would be an “unprecedented” example of “judicial activism” undertaken by “unelected” judges. The relevant excerpts of the President’s speech, as reported by Reuters, are as follows:
    “Ultimately, I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”[...]

    “And I’d just remind conservative commentators that, for years, what we have heard is, the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism, or a lack of judicial restraint, that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law,” Obama said.

    “Well, this is a good example, and I’m pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step,” he said.
    The remarks have prompted a flurry of speculation about how much of an effect, if any, the President‘s remarks will have on the Court’s eventual decision. The Drudge Report has openly speculated that President Obama knows something about the eventual outcome of the case, possibly through a leak from the high court itself. The Huffington Post, meanwhile, has drummed up the President’s confidence with the headline “It Will Stand.”

    Here‘s the video of the President’s actual remarks:



    How accurate is Obama’s charge of “judicial activism,” though? While it’s true that the Supreme Court has at times deferred to the will of Congress, or of state legislatures, a decision blocking laws that are passed by “strong majorities” is not so “unprecedented” as he might think. In fact, the Court struck down an act of Congress as recently as 1996 – specifically, the Line Item Veto Act, which passed the Senate by 69-29, and passed the House by unanimous consent. This is a much stronger majority than existed in the case of Obamacare, and ironically, the judges who struck the law down were (with the exception of Clarence Thomas) all from the liberal wing of the court. Another case where the Court struck down a law passed by the Federal Congress concerned the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

    In fact, very recently, the Court arguably took on both the President and the Congress in the case of Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, which not only ruled that the Bush administration could not try detainees under military commissions without express authorization from Congress, but explicitly set aside an existing act of Congress which arguably removed the Court’s jurisdiction over the case. Again, the majority in this case consisted of liberal justices, and Justice Anthony Kennedy.

    So does Obama know something we don’t, or is the charge of judicial activism unwarranted? Weigh in below.

    Quote of The Day From Ben Stein:


    “Fathom the hypocrisy of a Government
    that requires every citizen to prove
    they are insured.... but not everyone
    must prove they are a citizen.”

    If ObamaCare is upheld by SCOTUS and the Obama syndicate somehow manages to seize a second term, We-the-People and our country will be dead

    Obama Demands SCOTUS become Rubber Stamp for his Policies

    Sher Zieve Tuesday, April 3, 2012

    Like the MCP (
    Master Control Program) in TRON 1, Obama has already sucked the life out of Congressional members. That once co-equal (per the US Constitution) branch of the US Government is no longer viable and has become little more that a “me too” for Dictator-in-Chief Obama’s destructive and malevolent policies and behaviors.

    Whether its members were threatened with harm or coerced with very-large bribes, they work for Obama and the New World Order now. The citizens of the USA have been reduced to mere chattel and are currently being treated as such. If you will recall, Speaker of the House John Boehner (after several good on-camera cry-fests) lost no time before he willingly caved to any and all of Obama’s demands and still maintains that personal posture and proclivity today.

    Note: Instead of exhibiting any conservative tendencies—whatsoever—Boehner appears to be Marxist San-Fran-Nan in drag.

    Now, however, Obama has decided it’s time to set his attention onto the third co-equal branch of government and is in the process of attacking and beginning to destroy the power, purview and will of the Supreme Court of the United States. As has been affected since the inception of the US Supreme Court, after SCOTUS hears oral arguments (this time regarding ObamaCare) from both the US Government’s and the opposition’s attorneys, the Associate Justices take a preliminary vote. These votes were—prior to Obama’s reign over the American people—kept secret until both minority and majority opinions could be pondered and, eventually, put to text.

    Note: With the two recent Obama appointees to the High Court, we cannot assume that is still the case and one or both may have already alerted their Master.

    In his usual arrogant and condescending manner, Obama—this week—slammed the Associate Justices as being an “unelected group of people” and indicated it was not even their business (unless they provide no more than a rubber-stamp for and to his policies and programs) to determine ANYTHING about ObamaCare…as it was HIS bill and passed by Congress (but, only the Democrat-controlled Congress). Obama’s exact words are: “I just remind conservative commentators that for years, what we’ve heard is the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint, that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law. Well, this is a good example. And I’m pretty confident that this Court will recognize that and not take that step.”

    Note: Obama’s disdain—if not hatred—for all who attempt to uphold the US Constitution is both palpable and truly breathtaking.

    Only one of the problems with Obama’s ludicrous statement is that it IS the job of SCOTUS to rule upon the Constitutionality of legislation brought to it and if proven to be unconstitutional said legislation is overturned by the High Court. On the other hand, “judicial activism” occurs when judges (traditionally and 99.99999% of the time are leftist jurists) WRITE new laws. Obama knows this. Although the dictator may be certifiably insane he’s not stupid.

    If SCOTUS has—as has Congress—been compromised by the Obama syndicate, we will know by June 2012. We-the-People who have studied the US Constitution for many years know that ObamaCare as written is unconstitutional and that the federal government forcing a population to engage in commerce and to buy anything said government demands amounts to a totalitarian form of government. The Obama syndicate—with its willing Marxist RINO partners—has already begun dissolving the First, Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments…and is tirelessly working to disarm us by trying all it illegally can (think “Fast and Furious”) to destroy the Second. Now, it is determined to fully implements its Stalinist USSR and/or NAZI Germany (Fourth Reich) programs.

    If ObamaCare is upheld by SCOTUS and the Obama syndicate somehow manages to seize a second term, We-the-People and our country will be dead, anyway. And, by the way to you on the Left, unless you’re working directly for Obama, his syndicate’s crocodile will eat you too. Like it or not, we’re all in this together. Again, if you’re not willing to fight for Liberty, you doom yourself to die under Tyranny.
