Skip to comments.At the Supreme Court, a royal mess for ‘King Barack’

It has the makings of a royal mess for King Barack.
Monday mornings Supreme Court argument about the Environmental Protection Agencys authority to regulate greenhouse gases went badly for the Obama administration so much so that the real question before the justices seemed to be how severe the EPAs loss would be.
The administrations solicitor general, Donald Verrilli, pleaded with the justices to recognize the urgent problem of climate change, because the threat to future generations gets worse with each passing year.
But as the argument played out, the courts swing justice, Anthony Kennedy, made clear that he agreed with the conservatives that the administration had gone too far in its carbon-dioxide regulations. Even some of the liberal justices voiced skepticism about the Justice Departments position.
I know litigants hate this question, Justice Sonia Sotomayor told Verrilli. She asked which of two rationales he would prefer if you were going to lose.
I knew you were going to ask me that question, the solicitor general replied.

This is an argument to make before the Legislature. The fact that the Administration is asking the nine Justices of the Supreme Court to make this kind of a scientific decision shows how far we are down the rabbit hole.
>> the Supreme Court to make this kind of a scientific decision
Not the first time the idiots proved science is political.
I’d like to be optimistic. But when it comes to the SCOTUS actually getting it right it’s hard to be optimistic. I’ll continue to pray for a smidgen of sanity.
How much will King Barack’s thumb be on the scales of justice to get what he wants without appearing too obvious, I wonder.
Kennedy swings both ways.
Never again will I underestimate the supreme courts ability to come up with the wrong decision on any Constitutional matter.
Yes and there’s many more examples like Roberts finding that Obamacare fines were just taxes after all, therefore making it Constitutional.
This entire government is working against liberty AND justice and they all need to be replaced, ASAP.
Praying for sanity and dare I say “adherence to our Constitution”?
Roe v Wade ...
Trying to guess what the SCOTUS will do has bitten the right to many times before.
Only way to know is wait and see what they do and I’m not making any bets they’ll do the right thing. We have Obamacare, enough said.
I lost all respect for them with the Obummercare vote.
Welcome King Barack "Canute" Obama the Great.....
...Obama issues an Executive Order to the Sun...
....to increase it's magnetic field....
and make a good crop of sunspots before elections in 2016....
(PhysOrg.com) -- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades.
The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age....and lasted 400 years.
Good luck surviving with no electricity and GE modified seeds.

“Either way, it was clear that this court would not be of service to the ‘king.’ “( From the article.)
They will be once the NSA has dished up or manufactured dirt on them.
Uh, Dana, I have news for you: SCOTUS is not a reliable barometer for protecting Constitutional freedoms.
And besides, the Clown and his jester Eric the Red have already demonstrated they will IGNORE the law.
” known as the Little Ice Age....and lasted 400 years.”
Yes, which followed the MWP (Medieval Warm Period), when Greenland was partly green.
The AGW clowns are composed of con artist and their useful idiots.
Okay, I'm curious. How does low, or no sunspots, translate into "no electricity"?
Have the oceans truly risen? Anybody? Bueller?

King Obama has decreed the shutdown of the coal and oil industries providing fuel for the generation of electricity because he claims they produce carbon dioxide emissions causing Global Warming and Climate Change (Anthropogenic Climate Change AGW). King Obama is a Denier when it comes to the science of Global Cooling when the Earth’s climate goes into the extraordinary little ice age for a period of decades or centuries in response to the cyclical weakening of the Solar magnetic field and ceases the normal production of Sunspots for prolonged periods of time.
I get that part. The part I don't get it how lack of sunspots affects coal production or the production of electricity?
There should be a separation of church and state. Oh, wait?
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Obama IS King.
Laws are supposed to made by the Congress, which is
just too busy with its child brothels, Ambien,
alcohol, and TREASON.
The Supreme Court has screwed us before. Remember how the openning arguements went well against obamacare. Roberts stabbed the American people in the back on that one — what is different now? I’m sure that NSA data they collected is still good for blackmailing him.
IMO, NONE of those black robed pseudo intellectuals belong in that magnificent building which was built to house the final arbitrators of justice in the country.
The only thing supreme about the occupants of this Supreme Court are their massive ego’s and sense of grandiosity.
And how many people have already died and will die because of Roberts' corruption? There is blood on his hands and in an alternate remade America, Roberts would be put on trial for his crimes and spend his days in a small windowless cell.
And Kagan the wrong way.
Gee, didn’t the press report that the Obamacare hearings went badly for the administration too?
Don’t worry, the libs will support their man and Justice Roberts will find a miracle theory to allow the EPA to continue to simply line-out text of the law and replace it with text they prefer.
Then certain elements will tell us how Brilliant Roberts was by laying a trap that the EPA will fall into.
What BS. Humans emit carbon dioxide and are not net neutral. So the solicitor is lying. The administration is speaking out both sides of it's mouth as usual.
Who’s got faith in the Supremes? What with Roberts tearing up the constitution and the majority declaring against carbon dioxide, not to mention their consistent support of killing the unborn.
The Latina was not at The State of The Union. All is not well in SCOTUS land. The reason given was that she was in Cal. judging a Moot Court contest.
Alternatively, it illustrates to the justices that the administration knows the congress will never legislate in it’s favor on carbon lies. Faux science will not prevail in the congress
Roberts will obey his lord and master.
I don’t trust ‘em as far as I could throw ‘em.
So now SCOTUS decides scientific issues too? Ridiculous.
“Have the oceans truly risen? Anybody? Bueller?
Predictably they have, every six hours or so, but so far they have always receded.
In case you haven't noticed...the Obama regime is busily shutting down coal powered and nuclear plants.....good luck getting much power from snow laden solar panels and frozen windmills.
With our current Supreme Court and its' ruling on Obamacare it is now "Damn the Constitution! Anything goes!"
Did it just seem that long because no one had TV or the internet?
What do sunspots have to do with the production of of electricity vis a vis coal?
What is the SCOTUS even doing hearing this? The Congress should have clamped down on the EPA by defunding it long ago. The whole agency needs to be shut down.
