  • John Roberts -The Worse Conservative Supreme Court Decisions In U.S. History

    Charles Krauthammeer suggested that John Roberts is playing a sort of catch-up baseball since Roberts feels he needs to protect the image (among liberals, evidently) of the Supreme Court which got bad ratings (like CNN) since 2000, when the Supremes sided with W Bush over Al Gore. Maybe, Krauthammer, the psychiatrist, has gotten into the head of Roberts, but that remains to be seen. We have expected Roberts to act more honorably, as opposed to expecting Elena Kagan, who drafted Obamacare, to recuse herself from making any decision on the matter. I am convinced that most Democrats cannot experience...
  • How Obama Might Use the Constitution to Arrest the Tea Party

      It is one thing to overturn ObamaCare should we be fortunate enough to A) Have an election (yeah, you heard me), B) Get a GOP President, C) Get a CONSERVATIVE House that will hold Boehner accountable as Speaker to not cave as he did on the budget ceiling debate, and D) get at least 51 votes in the Senate.But how do we rectify the insane “precedent” set out by Roberts that the judiciary has the right to reclassify – even create – a “tax” that was never written in the original law?   Or that you can now be “taxed”...

    U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is joking that hell be spending some time in an impregnable fortress after casting the decisive vote upholding President Barack Obamas health care law. Responding to a question about his summer plans, Roberts quipped that he thought his planned trip to Malta to teach a class was a good idea. He delivered the joke Friday at a federal court conference at a posh Pennsylvania resort. Roberts declined to answer a question about the landmark opinion issued Thursday. But he says he hopes the court will be remembered for protecting equal justice under the...

    I think it is time for the states to call for a Constitutional Convention. The Congress, the Executive and now the Supreme Court has overstepped their bounds. For my first amendment: Each Justice of the Supreme Court shall serve two terms only of two years duration. They shall stand for election by vote of the Electoral College. Comments: As we see in this SCOTUS decision, the SCOTUS can do so much damage in such a short period that their terms should be reviewed every two years. Additional Amendment: Neither the Congress, nor the Executive nor the Courts in aggregate shall...

    John Roberts is said to be quite concerned about the way in which history will view his tour of duty as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Well he doesnt have to worry any longer, for his remarkable decision allowing Congress to impose a tax improperly and in a previously unconstitutional manner will secure his place in Court history for all time. Very fewincluding Obama himselfbelieved the scheme of presenting the individual mandate penalty as a tax would pass constitutional muster. The DOJ included a the penalty is actually a tax argument in an ObamaCare brief to the Supreme Court,...

    The American Medical Association has long supported health insurance coverage for all, and we are pleased that this decision means millions of Americans can look forward to the coverage they need to get healthy and stay healthy. The AMA remains committed to working on behalf of America's physicians and patients to ensure the law continues to be implemented in ways that support and incentivize better health outcomes and improve the nation's health care system.

    Theres a reason no one expected this decision. Its because it makes no sense. Its not a rational view, its not consistent with any of the pleadings, it violates about 200 years of Supreme Court procedure. And it sets the Constitution on its ear. In a decision penned by the chief justice of the United States, the court has not only legislated, it has levied a tax. In support of an imperial presidency, it has become sovereign itself. Precedent is abandoned, rule of law is ignored, jurisprudence is bastardized. Obama wins and liberty loses. The government is more powerful, the...

    ..........Later in the day, however, the pundit elites started to furrow their brows and dust off their elbow patches -- and proceeded to try to convince us rubes that we had overreacted. They treated us to all kinds of contorted rationalizations and justifications full of pseudo-intellectual gobbledygook. We got this from Charles Krauthammer, George Will, Thomas Lifson, Erick Erickson -- among others. And while I really tried to like it -- and really tried to find solace or a silver lining -- there are just some basic, fundamental things I could not ignore. The bottom line is that John Roberts...

    WRITTEN IN ADVANCE OF THE DECISION. ADDRESSES HISTORY OF THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE. By Michael D. Peabody - Sometime this week the United States Supreme Court will decide whether the majority of provisions in the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act are constitutional. Called Obamacare, first by detractors and then by supporters reclaiming the phrase, it promises Americans a wide variety of health care benefits. Under provisions already in place, young people can stay on their parents health care insurance until age 26 and small businesses can claim a tax deduction for providing health insurance to their employees. Many conservatives...

    In a Dec. 24, 2009 blog at I predicted almost exactly what the outcome of this would be. I warned "Forget Supreme Court Challenges to this Monstrosity." I warned that "anyone putting his faith in a Supreme Court reversal of any of this health non-care monstrosity has another think coming. First, the USSC seldom rules in favor of constitutionally limited government. I then noted the incredible discipline with which the GOP fought against this: "The Republicans, both in the House and Senate, combined for a 256/257 votes against the bill (Cao, LA voting for the House version, but announcing...

    After pretending to consider various women and minorities for the Supreme Court these past few weeks, President Bush decided to disappoint all the groups he had just ginned up and nominate a white male. So all we know about him for sure is that he can't dance and he probably doesn't know who Jay-Z is. Other than that, he is a blank slate. Tabula rasa. Big zippo. Nada. Oh, yeah ... We also know he's argued cases before the Supreme Court. Big deal; so has Larry Flynt's attorney. But unfortunately, other than that that, we don't know much about John...
  • The Obsolescent Supreme Court

    06/28/2012 1:45:02 PM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 12 replies
    Justice John Roberts has made the Supreme Court superfluous and obsolescent by obsequiously abdicating its powers to the taxing authority of the U.S.Congress. Freeper Graewoulf has commented that Chief Justice Roberts has "destroyed the boundary between the Judiciary and Legislative branches of our government." My thoughts precisely as I heard the verdict come down today. But it is far worse than that. This new taxing authority will do more than just restructure our economic freedoms and control behaviors. It can fundamentally change the concept of our Constitutional rights. Not only are we becoming Greece; we are becoming Egypt. The new...

    MADISON Gov. Scott Walker is pledging to fight the U.S. Supreme Court, vowing that he will not implement the federal health care reform law, despite the U.S. Supreme Courts ruling that the law is constitutional. Walker said in a statement shortly after Thursdays court ruling that he hopes that Republicans will be in control of Congress and that the White House after the November elections and that they will repeal the law. If there is no political remedy from Washington and the law moves forward, it would require the majority of people in Wisconsin to pay more money for...
