President Obama rattles his saber...
President Obama's attempt at browbeating and humiliating the justices of the Supreme Court seated just beneath him during his 2010 State of the Union Address was one of the more disgusting things I've witnessed by a president during my lifetime. Now he's rattling the saber at these same justices by trying to intimidate them concerning their ruling on his own nationalized health care which is a clear violation of the US Constitution. Said the President to the White House Press Corps:
I am confident the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically-elected congress...
I just remind conservative commentators that for years we have heard the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint. That an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law. Well, this is a good example and I am pretty confident that this Court will recognize that and not take that step.
But of course he lies when he says he's confident they'll uphold his attempts at nationalizing health care. Otherwise he wouldn't be threatening them.
Then too, if these are President Obama's high legal principles, why is he such an advocate of the slaughter of unborn children? If unelected justices ought not to overturn laws passed by a strong majority of democratically elected legislators, why has he never spoken a word against Roe v. Wade which threw out the laws of every state of the Union against the slaughter of unborn children?
Of course, President Obama has no principle of integrity. He's only a politician grabbing for power. One "exercise of raw judicial power" is as bad as another unless it's bloodthirsty rulers weighing the utility of that power for their own power and legacy.
For shame President Obama. Do you take the citizens of these United States for fools?
If the justices fear the Highest Court of the Judgment Seat of Almighty God, they should throw out President Obama's exercise of raw executive power passed by those craven members of Congress, all of whom violated their vows to uphold the Constitution when they passed and he signed into law nationalized health care. Then they should reverse Roe v. Wade which not only violated our Constitution, but ended the rule of law in these United States.
God Himself has declared, "Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed, for in the image of God He made man" (Genesis 9:6).
