Why Obama Shouldn’t Declare War on the Supreme Court

[SNIP}......But here is a pretty good rule of thumb for Democratic Presidents: if it didn’t work for Franklin D. Roosevelt, who won four terms and a World War, it probably won’t work for you either.

Because they can take up his constitutional eligibility case,rule him a fraud and then send him to the gallows.

Even when it makes bad law (Bush v. Gore), it has the last word.

I broke my self-imposed restriction against reading anything in that shameless Democratic mouthpiece rag, then I read this and remembered why I made the restriction in the first place.

It's worthless drivel, that reads like its ghost-written by that DNC chick with the mayonnaise in her hair.

They consider this, an article that says Obama shouldn't add liberal seats to the Supreme Court, an example of "balance."

It would be a total waste of time, although dumbo seems to be quite good at that. The justices are appointed for life and POTUS might just as well declare war on the sun.
The "fun" would start, however, if one of the conservative justices kicked off. Then, we would see some fireworks when dumbo tried to appoint a lib in their place.

I read a fiction book several years ago by the Christian author Larry Burkett. In it, the President of the United States had several US Supreme Court Justices assassinated in order to gain control of the court. It gave his appointees the majority and they rubber stamped his actions in order to take over the country.

The author clearly stated in the forward that he had no gift of prophesy. Maybe he did and just didn’t realize it! Hope they all stay safe.

“Because they can take up his constitutional eligibility case, rule him a fraud and then send him to the gallows.”

Why did Chief Justice John Roberts swear him in a second time - without audio? Obama is arrogant enough to think that he can threaten and belittle SCOTUS without any repercussions...and I hope he keeps on thinking it! His slap at the justices in the State of the Union address a few years back has set Anthony Kennedy against him totally.

The book was the Illuminati and would be an excellent read right now. In it the US currency collapses and the crap hits the fan overnight.

That’s right and the military will very well back them as I bet most of them hate him and now believe him to be a fraud. It has happened to many a tin-plated fool in history.

Granted, all crimes against humanity do not involve death camps, mass starvation and jungle wholesale massacres, so that hyperbole is understandable but a bit extreme.
But lacking that option, I could be persuaded to support the original suggestion.

I beg to differ.

SCOTUS suddenly got religion and started deciding the New Deal was A-OK after FDR took the shot at their head.

No, just send him back to his “homeland” (as Michelle herself said), Kenya.

Most of the justices were real lawyers and politicians, and he tweaked their noses.
That was about as smart as trying to pet a badger. Or maybe better: he tried to pour warm butter in five wildcats’ ears. In a phone booth.
This was the only jewel in his “crown.” Now, after four years all he’s going to have to show from getting up at the crack of noon and laboring 3 1/2 hours a day are t-shirts from his many vacations. Maybe some (stolen) turkish bathhouse towels. And his golf score cards.
Yeah I know, Kagan ain’t sung yet. Or mebbe she has.

Not much of a choice there...

If Obama tried Roosevelt's heavy-handed ploy of stacking the Supreme Court, Odumbo would be impeached so fast that it would make Ayers, Pelosi, Wright, Jesse Jackass, Sharpton etc slash their wrists.

Followed of course, by the arrest trial and jail time for all his enablers/supporters for treason.

As long as DumBO is in charge, the most endangered people in government are the 4 conservatives on the Supreme Court.

“There was a video of the 2nd swearing in. I saw it.”

I don’t think so - If I recall correctly, there was a still photograph - no video - and there was NO audio!

I have always suspected that the issue with Barry’s birth certificate is that he went by the name Soetero while in Indonesia, and didn’t bother to change it back LEGALLY to Obama until much later, possibly even during the campaign.

If his name was actually still Soetero at the time of the election, then he would have to be sworn in as that, while the legal name change was being done behind the scenes. After Bush vs Gore in 2000, no one on the SCOTUS would want to be perceived as being a party to questioning the first black President.

Just a theory but it makes as much sense as anything else we know for sure about the man! And, it would explain the questions surrounding his Selective Service Registration. If he used a foreign name/citizenship to get into Occidental, then he wouldn’t have bothered to register for the draft. But when the issue came up in 2008, something had to be done quickly.

Don’t know if it yet qualifies as a declaration of war on the court, but Obama has already (today) more or less warned the court that overturning Obamacare would be “unprecedented” and an example of “judicial activism”.

I doubt he’ll be able to resist even more such barbs directed at the court over the next few months.

(And I also wonder if, since a preliminary vote has already been taken among the justices, whether one of his two appointments might be keeping him up to date on what is happening with Obamacare day-to-day. Wouldn’t put it past them.)

POTUS talking about an overturn of Obamacare being unprecedented shows that he is not really a Constitutional Lawyer...he just plays one on TV.

See USSC rulings on the National Industrial Recovery Act and the Agricultural Readjustment Acts of 1935 and 1936.

Yes, that was my point. They introduce this insanely stupid and impossible idea, then advice Obama against doing it. And in their minds, this illustrates their even handedness.

In their world, stopping one inch short of endorsing a left wing dictatorship is balance.

In a few months, they'll praise Obama for not lining the conservative SC justices up and shooting them.

I have searched C-Span and numerous other sites. There was NO video and NO audio - the second swearing in was done the next day with less than a dozen people in attendance, mostly top aides to Obama. All the reports mention that four reporters were present but I cannot find any reference that lists their names. Here is a link:
