Who Will Guard Us From Our Guardians?

Who Will Guard Us From Our Guardians?

In Chief Justice John Roberts’ majority opinion upholding ObamaCare, he wrote, “It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.” Ironically this calls to mind another troubling question. Since the Chief Justice’s presence on the highest bench in the land is a “consequence” of political choices – he being nominated by a political figure and confirmed by other political figures – the people might rightly ask “Who will protect us from you?”

ObamaCare is the Power to Destroy

ObamaCare is the Power to Destroy

Nearly two centuries ago Daniel Webster stood before the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of James McCulloch, head of the Baltimore branch of the Second Bank of the United States. At issue were two basic questions: Did the federal government have the authority to establish a bank? And did states have the authority to tax that bank (and by extension the federal government)? “An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, the power to destroy,” Webster famously argued in opposition to the latter question.

Are You Happy Now, John Roberts?

There is no “silver lining” to last week’s lawless and illegitimate decision by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and the other four commie liberals to uphold the unconstitutional individual mandate in Obamacare as a tax (something the Court is not supposed to be allowed to do—re-write a law). Any conservative who speculates that Roberts’ grossly wrong-headed majority opinion is somehow good for our side is pathetically grasping at imaginary straws.

Eviscerating the Constitution

Eviscerating the Constitution

Some conservatives have desperately tried to find a silver lining in Chief Justice John Roberts’ evisceration of the United States Constitution. Those who cheer the supposed blow to the liberals’ ability to pervert the Commerce Clause are like a death row inmate who is very happy about the steak he had for his last meal.

Who Will Protect Us from Chief Justice Roberts’ Choice?

Who Will Protect Us from Chief Justice Roberts’ Choice?

In the tradition of Marbury v. Madison, it is not up to the Court to answer political questions with which the elected branches of government have discretion. Except of course when Congress has no authority to make such choices in the first place because they directly violate the Constitution. And so, who will protect the people from the consequences of Roberts’ choice?

And the Beat Goes On!  Part II

And the Beat Goes On! Part II

The one-two punch delivered by Chief Justice John Roberts this week left no questions as to his conservativeness being only a mask. To designate Roberts as a RINO belittles his just due. For here was a patient and, up till this week, an undistinguished prince jewel that laid in wait for his opportune moment. The price for his disclosure had to be worth his public undressing and with its final presentation, it was justified!

The ‘Taxing Clause’, Five Lawless Judges, and ObamaCare

We must disabuse ourselves of the monstrous lie that the federal government created by the Constitution is the exclusive and final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to it; and that the opinion of five judges, not the Constitution, is the sole measure of its powers. In effect, last week the Supreme Court majority repealed Clauses 3-16 of Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. In a nutshell, the Lawless Five asserted that Congress and the President may do whatever they want to us. Just call it a “tax”.

George Washington presiding the Philadelphia Convention

Our Twentieth Century Decline

Just how in the world has America’s future come to rest upon nine opinions? Certainly, something went askew from Our Forefather’s original designs? As this Constitutional travesty bears out, the future is now in the hands of not nine jurists, it’s now whittled down to a majority of five. This is not as it should be. Is it any wonder as to why these professional whores are all up in arms against the recent charges emanating from our Tea Party movement? All of a sudden, demanding accountability is now radical.

Why the Congress Must Rein in the Supreme Court

Why the Congress Must Rein in the Supreme Court

Thursday June 28, 2012 will live in the memory of all patriotic Americans as a day of infamy along with Pearl Harbor and 9-11. Ever since the Supreme Court took unto itself the power to void laws passed by the representatives of the people in Marbury V. Madison the black-robed Justices have acted, and Americans have accepted them as if they are the source and the summit of what is and what isn’t allowed in America. In most cases since the middle of the 20th century, the high court has sided with whatever the central government wanted to do in the way of extending its power and curtailing rights which any person who can read plainly sees protected in the document they are sworn to defend.

Sources: Justice Roberts Caved to External Pressure

As most Constitutionally-loyal person in the country struggles to understand why Chief Justice John Roberts sold out liberty and the Constitution this past week with the majority decision to uphold ObamaCare, an interesting article from Jan Crawford comes which quotes some anonymous sources which seem quite adamant that since the hearings in March, Roberts allowed himself to be swayed by outside opinion and switched from striking down the government health care takeover to upholding it.
