Will SCOTUS Rule That “Government of, by, and for the People” Is Unconstitutional?

In 2008, 13.7 million California voters did their civic duty by voting on Proposition 08, the state initiative which sought to define marriage as being valid only when it involved one man and one woman

The election was won by Prop 08 advocates who garnered 51.1 % of the popular vote, to 49.9 % recorded by those opposed.

The ballot measure was bitterly contested, and hugely expensive. A total of $83 million was spent by both sides.

Despite the millions of votes cast and fortunes spent on the proposition, both for and against,  the issue of gay marriage is still in bitter contention in California, and throughout America.

Just this week, the gay marriage row reached the rarefied air of the US Supreme Court where nine Associate Justices, dutifully wrapped in black robes and reflecting appropriately somber countenances for the occasion, gathered to consider whether 13.7 million voters in California had sufficient intelligence, wisdom, and morality to decide the issue for marriages to be sanctioned in California.

Although no one is sure how the SCOTUS will ultimately rule, the fact that the issue has even risen to the level of the Supreme Court is astounding!

Whatever happened to the democratic principle of “Government Of, By and for the People”?

What better definition of tyranny could there be than nine elitist intellectuals ruling to invalidate the results of a free and open election conducted in a democratic setting?

What the hell makes the opinion of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Antonin Scalia, or any of the other Supremes so much superior to the views of the ordinary citizens of California?

Perhaps the time has come to change our election laws?

Instead of asking common men and women to decide issues of great importance, why not submit the thorniest matters directly to the SCOTUS brothers and sisters and go around We the People, to begin with?

Especially, since We the People are utterly powerless to oppose the tyranny of the SCOTUS?

Supreme Court reconvenes Monday with new controversies ahead

by Jim Kouri on Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

This is article 49 of 60 in the topic US Supreme Court

On the traditional First Monday in October, the nine members of the United States Supreme Court reconvened today and will take up another batch of important — often controversial — cases in the coming months, according to several legal experts.

More than a few conservatives have revised their opinions of Chief Justice John Roberts and the eight associate justices whose decisions more often than not have an impact on the American people, their economy, their culture and their relationship with their own government, according to Jeffrey Schoen, an attorney and former law professor.

“A large number of Americans are still angry with the Roberts Court after its 5-4 decision to uphold President Obama’s healthcare law. Contrary to the pundits, it wasn’t Justice Kennedy who held the deciding vote, it was the so-called staunch conservative Chief Justice Roberts who ruled in favor of Obamacare,” said Schoen.

Opponents of the law — a majority of Americans, according to polls — claimed the mandate was nothing short of the federal government intruding on the private lives of citizens. While the high court was divided on this issue, the majority ruled that Congress’ taxing power was more important than a citizen’s right to be free from government intrusion.

In addition, non-government legal groups had filed amicus curiae (friend of the court) briefs in the federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, (Susan Seven-Sky, et al v Eric Holder, Jr. et al.(No. 11-5047)). Their attorneys, most of whom worked pro bono, were completely surprised and disappointed with the supposedly conservative Supreme Court.

Many lawmakers also were angry with the Roberts Court decision on Obamacare. “When most people think of health care reform they think of more doctors’ exams, not more IRS exams,” said Congressman Kevin Brady of Texas, a top House Republican on the Joint Economic Committee. “Isn’t the federal government already intruding enough into our lives? We need thousands of new doctors and nurses in America, not thousands more IRS agents.”

According to CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, Scalia was furious with Roberts over the healthcare ruling in which Roberts sided with the court’s traditionally liberal-left justices. Toobin claims his source said Roberts wanted to only strike down the individual mandate but didn’t wish to overturn the entire Affordable Care Act.

On the other hand, Scalia, Thomas, Alito and Kennedy believed the entire Obamacare had to be squashed.

But not all conservatives have given up on Roberts. Several right-leaning jurists say — off the record — that Roberts will show conservatives he’s indeed a Constitutional originalist in upcoming cases such as another legal challenge to affirmative action on university campuses

Progressive CJ John Roberts solidifies socialism in U.S.

by Sher Zieve on Monday, July 2nd, 2012

This is article 45 of 60 in the topic US Supreme Court

With full and enthusiastic support from SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts, Usurper and Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama has now effectively “transformed” America into his personal empire if dying cash-cow. Supplanting the US Constitution and Republic with what some pundits are calling “political correctness” (a view of Roberts’ behavior to which I do not subscribe), Roberts has now placed the United States of America firmly into Socialism…aka Marxism…and effectively changed the US Constitution’s opening line “We-the-People” into “We-the-Rulers.”

Roberts is now ‘loved’ by the Marxist Media who are praising his name to the nether regions which they inhabit. In my estimation either Roberts has chosen to leave the light of Constitutionality and legality — as do all leftists when they discover which side they are truly on — in favor of praise and adulation from the rankest amongst us or the recent bribe was just too large to ignore.

Note: All four dissenting associate justices agreed that Roberts’ decision was illegal, in calling it “vast judicial overreaching.”

Unless Roberts is and has always been a “sleeper leftist” just waiting for his time to strike out (many of us wondered and were very concerned about the formerly secretive meetings between Roberts and Obama as well as members of the Obama syndicate) as a true Marxist against the American people and their country, he may soon learn that when you deal with the devil you choose an inherently unstable and untrustworthy partner.

However, my concern today — as I believe should be the concern of us all — is the unassailable fact that he has legislated (from the highest bench in the land) the transformation of the USA from a Republic to a totalitarian state. Then, laughing at us all, Roberts told an assembly of 300 attorneys and lawyers at what was called a posh Pennsylvania resort “Malta, as you know, is an impregnable island fortress. It seemed like a good idea.” With his apparent vastly increased riches (courtesy of the American taxpayer) Roberts will enjoy his months of vacation on a well-fortified island far from the view and disgust of the Americans he has just sold into slavery. Yep! It appears Obama can even buy sitting US Supreme Court justices. Now, the Judicial branch of the US government has joined the other two in becoming completely lawless and under Marxist-Democrat rule. Roberts is making up new law, instead of good-faith rulings as to constitutionality. And, like his dictator boss, Roberts has also learned how to laugh at us all…with almost a perfect tone of disdain.

One thing left before it’s over, folks, and the last one turns out the last light in the USA…voting. Obama’s practice mobs are already turning against all who oppose or might oppose their leader and more and more reports of roving black mobs are coming in (many with videos) from across the country. I have listed only a few links below but, there are now thousands of articles on this latest Obama-inspired phenomenon. They are trying to intimidate you into staying home and cowering as the Obama Army violence increases. As I’ve stated before, Obama is working tirelessly to start a race war in OUR country.

Do not be intimidated.

Obama demands SCOTUS become rubber stamp for his policies

by Sher Zieve on Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

This is article 25 of 60 in the topic US Supreme Court

Like the MCP (Master Control Program) in TRON 1, Obama has already sucked the life out of Congressional members. That once co-equal (per the US Constitution) branch of the US Government is no longer viable and has become little more that a “me too” for Dictator-in-Chief Obama’s destructive and malevolent policies and behaviors. Whether its members were threatened with harm or coerced with very-large bribes, they work for Obama and the New World Order now. The citizens of the USA have been reduced to mere chattel and are currently being treated as such. If you will recall, Speaker of the House John Boehner (after several good on-camera cry-fests) lost no time before he willingly caved to any and all of Obama’s demands and still maintains that personal posture and proclivity today.

Note: Instead of exhibiting any conservative tendencies — whatsoever — Boehner appears to be Marxist San-Fran-Nan in drag.

Now, however, Obama has decided it’s time to set his attention onto the third co-equal branch of government and is in the process of attacking and beginning to destroy the power, purview and will of the Supreme Court of the United States. As has been affected since the inception of the US Supreme Court, after SCOTUS hears oral arguments (this time regarding ObamaCare) from both the US Government’s and the opposition’s attorneys, the Associate Justices take a preliminary vote. These votes were — prior to Obama’s reign over the American people — kept secret until both minority and majority opinions could be pondered and, eventually, put to text.

Note: With the two recent Obama appointees to the High Court, we cannot assume that is still the case and one or both may have already alerted their Master.

In his usual arrogant and condescending manner, Obama — this week — slammed the Associate Justices as being an “unelected group of people” and indicated it was not even their business (unless they provide no more than a rubber-stamp for and to his policies and programs) to determine ANYTHING about ObamaCare…as it was HIS bill and passed by Congress (but, only the Democrat-controlled Congress). Obama’s exact words are: “I just remind conservative commentators that for years, what we’ve heard is 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’m pretty confident that this Court will recognize that and not take that step.”

Note: Obama’s disdain — if not hatred — for all who attempt to uphold the US Constitution is both palpable and truly breathtaking.

Only one of the problems with Obama’s ludicrous statement is that it IS the job of SCOTUS to rule upon the Constitutionality of legislation brought to it and if proven to be unconstitutional said legislation is overturned by the High Court. On the other hand, “judicial activism” occurs when judges (traditionally and 99.99999% of the time are leftist jurists) WRITE new laws. Obama knows this. Although the dictator may be certifiably insane he’s not stupid.

If SCOTUS has — as has Congress — been compromised by the Obama syndicate, we will know by June 2012.
