    Years ago (and continuing to this day) Carry_okie warned that this was inevitable, and even how they would argue that the treaties supersede constitutional restrictions.
      ...all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding. -- the troublesome ambiguities in this portion of Article VI - (see CO published article)
    It's not all that clear that treaties can legitimately overrule the amendments like 2A because they were ratified AFTER the original, and by rights overrule those words undoubtedly welcomed by weasels.

    Personally, I think the court route is toast. Too late to wake people up who can fight this in courts and prevail. After Roberts turned, trampling our rights, hope from SCOTUS is not well placed.

    I hope you are right. However, there is real danger then too. Do you know why?

    Huey Long staged a one man filibuster against Social Security. Being a radical, he did not think FDR’s plan went far enough. Less than one month later, back in Louisiana, he was assassinated.

    Coincidence right?

    Do you know what FDR’s opinion was?

    Well then, I am sure you will love this if it is corroborated.

    From http://smallestminority.blogspot.com/2013/10/ill-be-interested-to-see-if-more-of.html

      Seen on Facebook, so take it with a grain of salt until there's corroboration. Purported report from someone who tried to sign up on the ACA website:
        I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 "Silver Plan" and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I "opt-out" and chose to continue along with no insurance. I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the "REPERCUSSIONS PORTION" for "non-payment" of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with "Non-Payment" and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy "Automatically withdraw" your "penalties" weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is "Free" or even "Affordable."
      So, uninsured now, paying $0 annually, unlimited out-of-pocket expenses.

      Now has the "option" of paying $7,164 annually, with a $14k deductible (essentially no coverage short of completely catastrophic), or paying $4,037 a year with, again, an unlimited deductible. Of course, now with the ACA, he no longer has the option of not paying anything except out-of-pocket expenses, his annual health insurance tax, penalty, tax bill is $4,037 for which he gets exactly zilch.

      Gotta pay his fair share! Yes, the Affordable Care Act has added an army of bureaucrats, but not one doctor, will increase the number of people who supposedly will have health insurance ($7,164 per annum, with a $14k deductible counts as "coverage," you see), and will save us all money because we'll be sharing the burden!

      And if you believe that you're a moron or a Democrat.

      If more of this comes out, expect some blowback. Delay Obamacare? Why? Why not let the Democrats experience the full reaction of the people who actually pay taxes?

    If the delay keeps more people from realizing this, you have never before been more right in your predictions (of what is wrong with a delay).

      Is it worse than if House GOP was to fold completely and pass Reid CR?
    No, a complete fold would be awful in addition to being demoralizing (for the GOP's continuance as an entity anyway).

    But I think it wasn't an either or situation. The delay was offered as a fig leaf to avoid the shutdown and it got rejected even before the vote. So the HOR tried to demonstrate it was being reasonable. But that is a waste of time with this stonewalling Senate and Prez. See, the SSM gives them no credit anyway. And so goes the low info voter.

    My strategic concern is that there is a danger from the delay itself. It is a good thing that so many FReepers see that already.

      (personally I think a cave like that would demoralize Dems, so they wont do it)
    Please expand on this. How would it demoralize Dems? I like the sound of it already.

    Doesn't the shrillness of the SSM propaganda sound like desperation?

      SEIU-types will be burning down Republicans houses, and beating their kids at school, with the Major Network cameras cheering them on.
    That's coming full-out eventually anyway, only a matter of time. In the words of Huey Long "Fascism will come to America in the guise of anti-fascim."

    Now that all the "anti-fascists" have their godhead in the oval office, the right people (them) are in power, so there's no longer any need to hide their fascism or restrain their brown-shirts.

    I am personally convinced that the delay of Obamacare is a bad idea for reasons many other FReepers have delineated elsewhere.

    However, I am in favor of pressuring the Left over very unpopular legislation. So I have a mixed feelings about what "Spengler" wrote for his bottom line. (In equal parts because of the delay element the fact this was published by GOPe leaning PJmedia).

    So what do other FReepers think?

    How might conservatism and constitutionalism gain or lose from this line of thinking?

    We are in a battle against Statist growth, and this manufactured crisis does indeed pose opportunities and risks.

    One of the biggest risks could be that Obama/Reid accept some delays. Consequence from delays are that is softens the pain for voters, and so ACA continues to be institutionalized with lessened blow-back.

    But we are in a battle now. So what are the opportunities and risks and how exactly do we gain ground from it in some ways suggested in Spengler's conclusion?

    I agree. It being UN originated points to how global are the goals.

    However, that’s an older bit of evidence that supports this theory. Today there was this story: “Pope Francis reaches out to atheists and agnostics”
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/the-pope/10302850/Pope-Francis-reaches-out-to-atheists-and-agnostics.html

    Excerpt: “The Pope has struck a surprisingly conciliatory tone towards atheists and agnostics, saying that God will “forgive” them as long as they behave morally and live according to their consciences.”

    Live according to your conscience. What a godsend (lower case) to those whose morality is not “live and let live,” but “do whatever it takes to protect Sustainability.”

    See? That’s a moral code too, and those who believe it to be righteous are living “according to their consciences.”

    I’d love to ask Pope Francis “Whatever happened to ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you?’ but I fear I know his answer. If there any institution that is not overrun by new age influences, I’d like to support it.

    As government becomes more tyrannical, what was once a subject that was rarely discussed -- Sustainability extremists having so much influence on public policy -- has been turning up more and more.

    Ideas that were once the theme of nightmares and horror stories keep turning into reality. There are no subjects, no behaviors that are ruled abnormal. And there is some Gub approved PC squad that will jump down your throat if you dare utter such words as nutjob to any one in their brand of nutjobs they claim to be protecting from offense.

    Are all people in power nuts? Then how come they are so successful?

    If only some are openly nuts, who is protecting them and how do they keep their sanity and the multiple deranged operations going? What thoughts keep them on track?

    This blog post offers up a theory designed to help understand what may be the nature of your enemy by contemplating behavior that is rarely discussed.

    There is much behavioral evidence to support this theory. If it is close to helping you understand the nature of those who hate Judeo-Christian morality, and Sun Tsu was correct, then you might finally begin to wins some battles, both cultural and governmental.

    For me, anything that might help pull the West out of its death spiral is worth considering.

    I don't know what to say. Are the Tea Party Patriots on our side or are they simply the other side of the coin to Rahm Emmanuel's "never let a crisis go to waste." The email which stoked this post began with a breathless "In just 34 days Obamacare will go into effect. I need your help now more than ever."

    I want to hear how others view this. Is there a way to achieve a compromise that so that much fewer of our funds wind up funding (putting it more mildly than in the post) the anti-conservative media?

    How is this different from the GOP doing the same thing year after year? What do I mean? How the GOP chose to go through the SSM to get out its message rather than every other means. Who here needs to reminder what a shambles the SSM made of the GOP debates so that we wound up with two Progressive GOP presidential candidates?

    If we continue to do what we did before and expect a different result, you know what that defines us as.

    Forget belief.

    What we KNOW is that the Statists are relentless at pushing propaganda and forcing all who want to keep their jobs to continue to lie for them. The constant line of brazen lies in the face of mountains of contradicting facts can not be explained by any other.

    Another thing: The Statists have mounted a compaign to to turn experts who disagree into unpersons. That is another well-KNOWN tactic of fascism/Stalinism.

    Bottom line: Beliefs, excepting for the dumb-downed bots who only believe what they’re told by edukators, has nothing to do with this. It’s about people who act in accordance with the totalitarian playbook that they have been given the means to control all thoughts.

    The only real answer to that comes not from beliefs by from convictions that we must fight back.

    “Acres burned increased - what changes took place in fire-fighting approach (e.g. let it burn vs aggressive tactics), what logging changes and forest management changes that resulted in more fuel per acre occurred?”

    The reason these questions are not asked is, on one hand, directly related to your tagline “When there is no penalty for failure, failures proliferate.” George F. Will).

    On the other hand, the reason your tagline remains operative is directly related to mine “How humanitarian can leaders truly be when they never direct a harsh word at Malthusian, Utilitarian, and Green nutcases?” In fact they grant them tax exempt status and award them government grants.

    These POS "scientists" and journo apparatchiks are paid to put out and parrot this propaganda on a daily basis. In each, the lies and half truths seem so overwhelming, and not even being consistent with each other, who has the energy to fisk each and every sentence?

    But I still try to do it in one on one conversation.

    Does anyone have the patience to partially fisk this crap here?

    How about if each reader takes a paragraph, or even just a phrase, so that the thread becomes one big fisking?

    I'll start with this one.

      Since 1950, the report found, the three worst forest fire years in California -- measured by acres burned -- all have occurred in the past decade: 2003, 2007 and 2008.

      [Each of the more recent years have seen our public lands overwhelmed with exotic species and uncleared brush -- all as a matter of policy. None of that is EVER written in these "news" reports as the cause of the fires -- providing the fuel through human-hating policies.]

      And the average number of acres scorched every year since 2000 is almost double the average of the previous 50 years -- 598,000 acres annually now, compared with 264,000 acres a year then. [This is like an arsonist crowing of how much damage he's caused.]

    Given how much the corrupt tend to go with what worked before, would you be surprised to find simiilarities to the schemes C_O exposed years ago in Energy Racketeering: The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).

      ...she literally says that "Plaintiff has determined that Plaintiff's research is sound" -- notice that she singles out the EPA as a particularly reputable independent investigator in defense of Mann's research. Given that the EPA is a federal agency led by appointees of a U.S. administration thoroughly invested in the climate change narrative, and currently moving to take drastic economic steps on the issue through the agency of the EPA itself, and that the EPA's own website declares its adherence to the climate change science and has made climate change-based regulation and activism its primary mission for the coming years, the judge's particular reliance on the EPA's judgment of Mann as evidence against the defendants' harsh criticisms reveals the court's disingenuousness...

    I don't really know how much is the same, and have no idea if some of the same players are involved, but it this story did remind me of that earlier work. However, I have experienced that some of the worst players in other schemes will stick to what they got away with before. Like it was a kind of dare to the rest of us; an "in your face."

    Independent corroboration to C_O’s comment.

    A woman of my acquaintance, heavily connected to ACLU HQ in L.A., in response to “I thought you hated the police,” replied “Actually no. We’d like to see one on every corner.”

    That was early 1990s. I detected a moment of sincerity. I provided a new layer of insight into what is discussed in inner circle strategy sessions. In another setting she would not have said it out loud.

    So I’d say not just probably, but highly probable.

    Wait. What monster can Obama appoint next. Lois Lerner or her clone?

    Ah, "but whomever still needs to be confirmed by the Senate" you protest.

    Not to worry. Harry "No more hangers!!! filibusters" Reid is still on the job.

    Close, but I'm sorry, not specific enough. There was a hint of the answer in a previous comment.
