Obama To Overrule Supreme Court? President Considers "Mitigating" Obamacare Ruling
zero hedge ^ | 6/30/14 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 06/30/2014 12:12:40 PM PDT by Nachum

Having had his omnipotence chipped away at last week, President Obama has - seemingly - been pushed too far by the Supreme Court's decision on contraception and Obamacare this morning: The White House stated...

Totalitarian? You decide... One wonders if the phrase "do you know who I am?" was uttered this morning?

 

As The Hill adds,

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said women should be able to "make personal health decisions for themselves,” and called contraception "vital" to the health and well-being of women.

 

...

 

"We will, of course, respect the Supreme Court ruling,” he added.

Wouldn’t he need both houses of Congress to do that?

Up to now he has been doing whatever he wanted. He doesn’t respect the Constitution. Never did. Hates this country.

But it’s fun to see him mad.

Obama and the Dems are presenting this as a ban on contraceptives. We have to battle this perception and remind people that contraceptives are STILL available and can STILL be purchased. Women just wont be able to force their employer to pay for them through the company health care plan.

This thought has occurred to me more than once:

What if The Kenyan simply decides to crush any and all private insurance carriers who refuse to offer contraceptive care?

Hobby Lobby wants to exclude abortificants from its group insurance? Too bad. It might be legal, but the tax penalties for those companies sent them into bankruptcy.

Or compliance with ObamaCare rules.

If this ruling had gone the other way, the next step for LBGTA would be demanding that all our health plans cover sex changes under the mental health requirements.

I’ve heard this concept, that having to pay for your own BC, jeopardizes women’s health. It must be a coordinated media push, to hear it from several directions.

Of course I do not think it’s true, but in propaganda the effect on the target audience is much more important than mere truth.

Nah. He just has to declare that SCOTUS was in recess this morning, in effect nullifying the two rulings against his agenda.

Sounds crazy? Who in the media/GOP-e would stop it?

there is no law the obozo won’t break just to show he’s the boss. Clearly the dude needs to be removed, prosecuted as a traitor and suffer the consequences as such. He seems to be orchestrating reasons to infuriate the people in order to declare martial law.

That will set up a rather.. interesting.. situation not seen since Andrew Jackson.

In short, is there any check on the Executive branch? He has already taken out the Legislative, will he move on the Judicial?

Yes, there are strong checks on the executive branch, however there isn’t any checks on Party intransigence — Even if you didn’t think Obama should have been impeached months ago. It should be pretty clear now that he very well should as impeachment was made to order to solve problems like OBama.

The problem then is the Senate Democrats who are chained to each other and are going to fight to the death to further corrupt and bankrupt the U.S

Why wouldn’t he just ignore the ruling?

**************
Thus far, he hasn’t encountered much of any resistance to his increasing string of power grabs. So to your point, why stop now? After all, he has a pen and a phone as he likes to remind us.

I wouldn’t put it past him to make a brazen attempt to extend his authority well beyond what it is now. The congress apparently has no appetite to reign him in.

Its depressing to watch a once great country descend into chaos.

God love you! Surreal, everything is surreal.

I think imam Obama probably has to be impeached, even if Reid kills any chance of removal by the Senate.

It only makes sense. He can take what he wants, and there’s no meaningful backlash. He should do things like sign an executive order banning guns.

I don’t think the GOP will even try any more.

Remember, the NSA was listening to EVERYBODY. Lots of dirt.

What is odd is that while they were able to get to Roberts, he seems to have changed somewhat. Maybe he no longer cares, or he has some sort of leverage.

This started with the Clinton’s contact political database where supporters and detractors are profiled and any pressure needed to be applied to them are customized.

They have a stable of ‘journalists’ who they have profiled so that they can always get some message out through some sympathetic journalist.

IT’s only going to get worse.

In Gallup’s annual survey of public confidence in a number of American institutions, confidence in the American presidency has dropped from 51% in June of 2009 to just 29% today.
