Count Me In

Hubris, hypocrisy, delusional self serving rhetorical lunacy:  these are the words that come to mind when I think of Barack Obama.  And day after day he keeps opening his mouth, inserting his foot, and proving that I am right.

Can you imagine the profound disconnect from constitutional reality that has to occur for the President of the United States to declare that the idea of unelected officials declaring a law unconstitutional is “unprecedented”?

First, let’s acknowledge that the Supreme Court’s constitutional function of judicial review was asserted in Marbury v. Madison in 1803 under Chief Justice John Marshall.  Hello, will the real Constitutional scholar occupying the White House please stand up?  There is no way this alleged scholar inhabits the body of Barack Hussein Obama.

“Let me remind conservative commentators...” he babbled about conservatives’ objection to judicial activism.

For the benefit of those uninformed individuals who do not know what judicial activism is let us review the concept in its simplest form.  Judicial activism is when justices who do not acknowledge that the Constitution was written using words that actually had discernible meaning make law independently from any statute that is actually before them for consideration.  They conveniently ignore the historical reality that the Founders in fact clearly articulated their intentions.

Those of us who do not see the Constitution as a lump of clay to be molded to the preconceptions and prejudices of those public servants who occupy the Judicial Branch consider judicial activism to be the process whereby unelected judges MAKE UP CRAP FROM THE BENCH.  They are less concerned with what the Legislative Branch pass as law than what those same unelected activist justices believe they should have passed.  They appropriate to themselves the legislative function and make “law” from the bench.

I personally believe that the ultimate arbiters of the Constitution are we the people.  Yes, we have a representative government, and yes, we owe allegiance and a contractual loyalty enjoined to our common interests, and yes, we must exhaust all lawful resources before we resort to Jeffersonian curative prescriptions.

But when a man of dubious origins and questionable legitimacy appoints radical deconstructionists who regard the Constitution as an inconvenient option in their global bag of tricks, we approach a dangerous line.  At some point, we the people must take a stand.  Always and preferably it should be lawful and peaceful, and thankfully, the Founders established the mechanisms to do so, but Jefferson spoke to our ultimate responsibility for our liberty as did many other Founders.

Judge made laws, as opposed to the interpretive function in which judges must often engage, are dreamed up out of thin air and given the color of law by activist judges who do not know their place.  They are oligarchs who believe that both the Legislative Branch and We the People are too dammed stupid to know what’s good for us so they take it upon themselves to be the tyrants that we so desperately need.

Imagine the mangled and twisted mental gymnastics that Obama has to have gone through to say what he did.  Because it is impossible that he is that stupid, the only possible explanation must be that he is deliberately misleading the sheeple.

To declare a law unconstitutional is a long established function of the Supreme Court.  If a law is unconstitutional, they simply declare the law as unenforceable because it does not pass constitutional muster and they return it to the Legislative Branch where that body of ELECTED officials must deal with it and thereafter answer to their constituents.  Under no circumstances does the Supreme Court have the authority to rewrite a law, and most assuredly they do not have the authority to author one, and as far as I’m concerned, when they do, it lacks authority.

For the love of God, November can’t come fast enough.  The government is intrusive enough without a Marxist fruitcake articulating utter nonsense on the public airwaves to the world at large.

To Orca ...... As I recall Florida kept changing the rules whereby votes were counted and recounted.  There was no law that gave them the "new" rules.  The Florida Supreme Court tried their hand at Judicial activism, attempting to add credence to some of these blatant outside the law counting procedures and deadlines.   SCOTUS acted properly to end the vote counting charade ........ and a year later an independent official recount confirmed Bush as the winner.

Obama insulted the Supremes in his 2010 State of the Union speech.  And now he demeans them as unelected and threatens them with a charge of judicial activism.  Is he baiting them so that if/when they declare Obamacare unconstitutional, he might then accuse them of acting in malice.  Might he by executive fiat overrule the Court.

The United States Supreme Court should take note of the legendary "Dread Scott" decision! Cheif Justice Roger Taney wrote the courts decision and truly thought this would solve the "slavery" issue once and for all----Yet what it actually did was to "ignite" the the setting for the "Civil War!" As I read the Case in my Constitution reader in my "Hillsdale" Week 7 Reading Assignment ==I could not help notice the similarity if you substituted Obamacare for slavery!

Like how the Supreme Court decided the Presidential Election in 2000.  That was not judicial activism at all, and was pure democracy (totally being facetious).

The only thing more despicable than the content of Obamacare, is the fraudulent process that passed it. The House passes a bill related to Defense and that bill became Obamacare. Basically took the HR#### off the Defense bill and slapped it on Obamacare. All bills that raise revenues must originate in the House and this is how Obamacare was birthed. A bastard child, just like it's daddy.

Obama studied the constitution to enable him to teach and reach how to use it to dismantle it.  I just finished reading -- Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America by Mark R. Levin .

I highly recommend this book as well as The Original Argument: The Federalists' Case for the Constitution, ... by Glenn Beck  .   Both of these books will provide a wealth of knowledge on the understanding the founding fathers had as they wrestled with the authoring of the U.S. Constitution.  The absolute brilliance that went into the forming of the basis for the government that began this country is truly astounding.  In the words of Mark Levin, the current day "masterminds" who regard their own brilliance as superior are the real threat to freedom.  We can and have withstood the threats from outside, but the threat from within can only be addressed with knowledge and truth.  No amount of intelligence alone can combat this internal threat. 

To say that Obama or his ardent followers are unintelligent is completely incorrect.  Intelligence alone cannot ever be confused with wisdom.  Wisdom is not an intelligence quotient.  Its number one discernible trait is humility.  I have met only a handful of truly wise individuals in my entire life.  All of them displayed this trait of humility.  All of them were brilliant and also generally older.  One of the other characteristics of wisdom is experience.  Experience comes at the price of time. No formula exists that assures that wisdom will come from a careful mix of experience, knowledge, and intelligence.

Obama is unwise and will never likely be judged as wise because he hasn't the humility to ever admit he is wrong or can be wrong.  His native intelligence is undeniable.  His knowledge and education document an impressive resume.  His position as the president of the United States affords him unparalleled power in a dangerous world.  His lack of wisdom makes that world much more dangerous than it could be or should be. 

I do not believe that Romney, Gingrich or Santorum are any more intelligent, well educated, or even better experienced.  I have concluded that any one of them is much wiser than Obama can ever become.  As self confident as any of these men are, they have all displayed degrees of humility far outstripping anything visible in the character of Obama.

I agree that any threat to Obama's life is an affront to our nation.  I also would rather see him live out the rest of his days with his family safely and in peace.  But, I will never agree that he deserved to hold his office nor should continue to hold it for a second term.  The Obama "mastermind" is a real threat to this nation and to the world.  Our system provides the remedy to removing that threat and will have the opportunity to be realized this November.

Fortunateson . . . . The House would bring charges of Impeachment but the Senate would never Impeach their  dear leader, so it would be just one more exercise in the neutering of Congress - - - it only cost money and keep the House from sending more Jobs Bills for Prince Harry to set on.

We all must remember,obama is the president of the U.S.A.   The majority voted for obama even without knowing who he is or what he really stands for but obama is still our president.We must stand as one nation. If you do not like what obama and his czars and democrat cronies are doing then stop voting for socialist muslims to lead us.Will obama get a pas on showing his real birth certificate in 2012,yes,if he doesn't have to show it by now what elected offical will say anything later?Transparency right?obama Transparency,have anymore sorry jokes?

Nice article: it's a shame to our WW II fathers that they lived and died to see JUSTICE carried on the shoulders of 5 individuals in the Supreme Court and we their kids have to establish a Nazi-Stalinest totalitarian in the Bleak House. Our fathers would know what to do with Obama; why don't their kids?  It all boils down to a fear to get involved really, a pacifism of domestic origin. Only Tea Partiers know that; and even they have to be kicked in the ass to get them moving, doing, and fighting to rid us of the Obama Myth.

Comment by Paul Phaneuf on April 2, 2012 at 3:59pm

I have to say, I am unaware of any specific attempts on Obama's life and would be greatly distressed were he to be assassinated.  While I can't stand his views, he occupies the office of President and a physical attack against him is an attack against all of us.  It's bad enough that this incompetent will be paid for the rest of his life, enjoy secret service protection and be addressed as "Mr. President", the last thing I would want to have to stomach is the canonization of a martyred Marxist.

I am against abortion, but I am also against those who would use violence to end it.  Murder is immoral regardless of who is doing it.

There are only two ways to lawfully remove Obama.  Impeach him, and he is certainly worthy of impeachment if  he is an interloper.  The other way is to vote the bum out in November.  Please God, don't let him be a martyr, we'll never be rid of him.  Better to let him live out the rest of his life hopping on one leg because he keeps putting his foot in his mouth.
