UPDATE: Supreme Court Commits Treason!!!!
With the United States Supreme Court poised to make their decision on Obamacare just hours away now (if you are reading this on Thursday, June 28 2012) there isn’t a single political pundit who has not yet weighed in with their thoughts on how the court will render its verdict. Include Robert Reich (or Reichhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh for you Rush-a-bes out there) in that un-chlorinated cesspool of disease and squalor, rabidly infectious with misinformation and lies, called the MSM. Reich is of the opinion the court will side WITH Obamacare, and he lays out several reasons why, all of which are both bogus and garbage. But one thought he has laid out is absolutely treasonous, and for that, he ought to be fully excoriated and drummed out of America permanently.
What did Reich say that was treasonous?
Chief Justice John Roberts is — or should be — concerned about the steadily-declining standing of the Court in the public’s mind, along with the growing perception that the justices decide according to partisan politics rather than according to legal principle.”
Yikes! Did Reich really say he hopes the Supreme Court will abandon its sworn duty to uphold, even acknowledge, the Constitution and decide in favor of Obamacare anyway (despite the fact that it is un-Constitutional) because if they don’t, the people might look upon them unfavorably?
Indeed, that’s exactly what Reich said. And, to a degree, we can understand exactly where Reich is coming from – the MSM media, that is, which is more unpopular right now than it has ever been. Never mind the actual quality of news content, it’s rating, ratings ratings! So it must be all about ratings with the Supreme Court too, says Reich, and the Constitution be damned.
Reich thinks SCOTUS will be swayed by the few people in America who want Obamacare upheld in its entirety. That may very well be true will Ginsberg, Kagan and sotomayor, all of whom are very liberal Justices, and judicial activists, and support looking outside the Constitutional, and even looking outside of American law altogether to what other countries are doing. And while it is un-Constitutional for Supreme Court Judges to do that – that still doesn’t stop them.
The Supreme Court can’t afford to lose public trust. It has no ability to impose its will on the other two branches of government.”
Robert Reich, like everyone else in the lame-stream media wants the Supreme Court to take its marching orders from them, rather than what is actually written in the Constitution with regards to the powers vested to the Supreme Court. What Reich won’t ever acknowledge, because it goes against liberal ideology and principal, is that the Supreme Court is not set up in the same way as say American Idol, the X factor, America’s Got Talent, etc., In other words, the Supreme Court is not a popularity contest, and it is not about acquiring the most, and highest, positive ratings. The Supreme Court neither makes laws, nor does it decide laws based on how many people’s feelings will be hurt. The Supreme Court was set up to ensure the Constitution was at all times upheld. Period!
It doesn’t matter that a significant portion of the public may not like Obamacare. The issue here is the role and institutional integrity of the Supreme Court, not the popularity of a particular piece of legislation. Indeed, what better way to show the Court’s impartiality than to affirm the constitutionality of legislation that may be unpopular but is within the authority of the other two branches to enact?
Reich is absolutely correct when he says “The issue here is the role and institutional integrity of the Supreme Court, not the popularity of a particular piece of legislation”. What is strange and confounding and damning is that the legislation in question is un-Constitutional, and Reich doesn’t seem to give a damn about that. Or, to put it another way, how is siding with Obamacare, specifically the mandate that every American buy health insurance or face steep fines and penalties, upholding the Constitution?
As conservatives, and as Americans, we fully expect Obamacare to be struck down. We also expect at least two Supreme Court Justices will side with Obamacare. And for any Supreme Court Justice to side with a law that is blatantly and patently un-Constituitonal, that is, and must be, an impeachable offense. It no secret liberals want Scalia thrown out. Why shouldn’t we, as conservatives, demand tyrants that refuse to stay within the boundaries of the Constitution be dismissed, on their own power or ours?
Obamacare is an absolute mess, filled with new laws and powers bestowed upon government, granting it an extension of authority it was never designed to have, but which will have to be funded either through higher taxes on all of us, or through printing more and more money and tacking that expense onto the national debt . We probably still don’t know every last disastrous detail. Remember, we had to sign the bill into law first, before we could read it? Remember who said that?
Is it really worth committing treason to uphold Obamacare? We already know the purpose of Obamacare was not to ensure the health of all, or any, Americans. Obamacare was set up specifically and directly to grow the size, the scope and the power of government, and to force us all to be that much more dependent on government and to become that much less independent for ourselves. It’s un-Constitutional and its treasonous. We’ll soon find out how many justices have committed treason shortly. How stupid do we have to be to not see just how dangerous Obamacare is to America and to all of us? As stupid as Robert Reich?
