Obama Trying to Cripple the Supreme Court
The Supreme Court has been hearing arguments about the constitutionality of Obamacare, and nearly all of the analysis seems to show that their is a good chance that our Supreme Court will block the federal government from seizing more power.
Predictably, liberals are furious that the court may deny them new unlimited power. Their tactic is to call into question the very legitimacy of the Supreme Court. They are claiming that because many important cases have recently been decided on 5-4 lines with Justice Kennedy siding with the 4 constitutional constructionist judges that the court is no longer “impartial.” They are calling into question the integrity and objectivity of loyal public servants at the highest level.
Adam Liptak has stated in The New York Times: “Should a bare majority of justices composed solely of the court’s Republican-appointed members strike down a Democratic president’s signature legislative achievement, the public perception of the court may be altered.” Some scholars are already wondering how much damage, if any, a party-line ruling striking down the disastrous Obamacare law would do to the court’s prestige, authority and legitimacy.”
Several facts buttress these scholars’ concerns. First, the current court’s decisions are seldom unanimous, and some are bitterly divided. Second, the court is closely balanced between a quite conservative bloc and a relatively more liberal bloc. Also, ideological divisions on the current court perfectly line up with political partisanship seen in the Congress – for the first time in many decades, all Democrats on the court are relatively liberal, and all Republicans are relatively conservative.
The American people can stomach principled ideological disagreements, but they hate partisanship in law and politics. Partisanship poisons the water and is the reason many of us detest politicians (I personally would prefer to drop them into a deep hole and cover it to keep them away from us civil human beings – let them battle between themselves where they can’t do much harm).
Within the poisonous context of a highly polarized presidential election, a health-care decision decided by five Republican justices against four Democratic judges will be so easy to caricature, that it is a sure bet that many politicians will not shirk from attacking the court on partisan terms. And President Obama has himself also shown only limited restraint in challenging the Supreme Court for its decisions (e.g., on Citizens United). It is little wonder that legal observers see the court as quite vulnerable.
This, of course, is part of the Power Elites agenda to create conditions for an Amerikan coup de tat. By de-legitimizing the Supreme Court, they can sidestep any legal restraint that the court would impose and replace it with one of their liking, more in line with their totalitarian desires.
Arm yourselves, the war is coming.
