Our Constitutional Scholar President And The Great Rubber Give-a-way.

There is something to be said of about a man who has the ability to stand in front of a bank of cameras and microphones, and unabashedly rewrite historical fact to the point of tortured dishonesty with the ease of a person strolling through the park on a lazy Sunday afternoon. This man has missed his calling, he should have been an actor. He would have been great at it. His views would have been 100% in sync with the Hollywierd crowd. Even his pathological narcissism would have been a benefit to himself and the rest of man kind as we yearned for a higher quality of entertainment than what the aforementioned Hollywierd crowd has been producing of late. As it stands though, in his current position, the man is an unmitigated disaster. What’s worse, on the very short list of his supposed strengths, he has proven to be, for lack of a more diplomatic phrase, wanting. Such is the problem with nominating a man with, again diplomatically, a paper thin resume. His very few positives will later stand out even more than usual, since there isn’t much else to talk about. In the case of Barack Obama, we were told that the man is a, “Constitutional Scholar.” To that I say the following:

Yesterday, President Obama, our, “Constitutional Scholar,” rewrote history and redefined our Constitution so that he could further redefine judicial activism, all in an effort to cajole the Supreme Court on its upcoming decision on his signature piece of thuggish Executive Branch over reach. Here is the money quote from the joint press conference he held yesterday with the leaders of two of our neighbors who are the latest victims of Obama’s Smart Diplomacy, (another issue to be discussed in further detail.)

Ultimately, I am confident that 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

Putting aside just for the moment that this was not passed by a strong majority, but by the thinnest of margins in the House, where there were no fewer than 34 defectors from the President’s own party, there was also not one single vote from the opposition Party in the House. It should also be noted that in the Senate, after the people of Massachusetts sent a Republican to the Senate for the first time since God knows when, based solely on his promise to vote against this Bill, it took massive legislative chicanery utilizing budget reconciliation to pass the Bill there. The American People hated it then, at least 65% of us did, and it is even less popular today as many are finding out what is in it. Now let’s turn our attention to unprecedented steps. The Supreme Court has struck down 53 laws between the years of 1981 and 2011. Judicial Activism is defined as the court creating new law in its decisions where none had previously existed before. It is not defined as the court noticing that a law passed by Legislators and signed by the Executive is in direct contravention of the documents founding this nation. The Constitution is not a living breathing document that can be manipulated to the whims of who ever wishes to create massive authority for themselves. It is the supreme law of our land and it was intended to place limitations upon those who would seek to govern us.

This Law was passed by using the very worst of political tricks. Outright bribery was used to buy votes from Senators in Nebraska, South Dakota, Louisiana, New Jersey, Ohio, California, and more. It was the height of Chicago style thuggery, and not at all the promised hopety change that would give us a Washington that aspired to some higher standard of conduct. Now, to add insult to injury, we have all found out some of the things in it that we were promised prior to its passage we would learn. One of those things is the gift of free condoms for all who want to engage in consequence free sex. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for promiscuity without consequence. I just don’t see why I should pay for someone else to have the good time. Without having that debate however, there is a more pressing question. How is it possible to mass produce all of those condoms without the usage of oil? Has anyone from the Obama Administration contacted the good people of Church and Dwight Co. Inc., (the makers of the fine Trojan Brand,) to determine if it is possible to make their fine contraceptive products, which President Obama has now decreed to be a basic human right, without using oil? How on Earth will we reconcile the Earth Spirit’s right to keep her oil to herself and the basic human right to what purportedly, (at least according to Sandra Fluke,) will be a massive need for condoms made of rubber?

All joking aside, that this man was sold to us as a Constitutional Scholar tells us more about the Main Stream Media than we ever needed to know. That he has been called that even recently is simply astounding. The blogoshpere was sent into a tizzy yesterday when he made this statement. Even the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals took notice and used the opportunity to beat up on one of the Government’s Lawyers, demanding a three page brief on the Administration’s position on judicial review. Many people have posited the belief that Justice Kagan, Obama’s former Solicitor General, leaked to the President the results of the early voting on his signature thuggish over reach. Yesterday’s foray into uncharted territory in attempted bullying was a ploy designed to cause Justice Kennedy to change his mind with 90 full days left prior to the decision being announced. I personally believe that it was nothing more than a little boy afflicted with pathological narcissistic disorder throwing his usual temper tantrum at the prospect that someone would have the temerity to notice that he is the least qualified person in any room that he enters.

    Obama was a lecturer, not a teacher/professor.
    I think it’s safe to assume that Bill Ayers et al pulled some strings to get him the gig simply to puff up his resume before he ran for office.

    Congressional activism is when Congress overreaches and passes a law that transforms the US economy into a a command-and-control economy. The Commerce clause cannot be about “affordability”. Price controls, production mandates, income controls…all determined by some half-educated nincompoop.

    Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan are the equivalent of the Senate having confirmed Nixon’s failed Court nominees Clement Haynesworth and G. Harrold Carswell—particularly so since Kagan is the First DA/DT Justice™, and Carswell was caught, some years after his nomination, in a compromising position in a men’s room.

    @ Overlook:

    We’re still living with the oil price control. Nixon’s attempts at a command economy failed, just as they all do. The market needs no help in self-correcting, and policies aimed at forestalling market corrections exacerbate them.
    The health service market was not in crisis: merely correcting for government interference -- mandating supply of services to those who do not pay, telling insurance companies how to assess risk, turning insurance companies into government proxies.


  13. 13 | April 5, 2012 4:11 pm

    @ Overlook:

    Here Here! I love it when I find someone else who gets it. Our health care market is fine, it is the insurance market that is in trouble, and it is that way precisely because the federal government tried its hand at socially engineering a commodity. We see the same exact effects happening in education.

    Ozero is a lazy man who can’t be bothered to learn anything outside of his warped world view. If he had to take an exam right now to get into Harvard, he would not qualify. He knows nothing about the sciences, history, or the humanities. He is a bright man, but ill-educated, without conscience, and a life long committed Marxist bound to destroy the ‘system’. Propaganda works until the leftist PERSONALLY gets mugged by reality. I think the high prices of necessities and continuing unemployment will bring him down in November. “They” want to demoralize you psychologically. Don’t let it work.

    Support of flyover’s POV from the Powerline blog:

    “I have a copy of one of his final exams. It is a long hypothetical involving civil rights, which begins thus:

    In part, Hardsville’s racial isolation is the result of white flight and the limited economic means at the disposal of the black community. It is also well documented, however, that Hardsville’s racial isolation arose in part due to decisions by a white-controlled city government prior to the seventies that were purposely discriminatory.

    So you can see what kind of “narrative” this exam question promotes, and hence the kind of answers likely to get an A from Professor Obama. One of the questions students are asked is, “What is the likelihood that the city will be held liable for violating the constitutional rights of blacks under the Equal Protection Clause. . .” There’s a second hypothetical involving potential gender discrimination under the Equal Protection Clause.

    A law student in Professor Obama’s class would learn virtually nothing about the constitutionalism of the Founding, or even of John Marshall or Joseph Story.

    Now, clearly Obama is hoping to intimidate the Court in the same way FDR did in 1937 with his court-packing scheme. Some time later I’ll discuss FDR’s extraordinary rhetoric attacking the Court that year, but suffice it to say for now that Obama already showed his hand with his inaccurate attack on the Citizens United decision in the State of the Union speech two years ago. As John Steele Gordon put it well, “It seems there is simply no lie President Obama will not tell in pursuit of his agenda.”

    Not everything the anointed one spews is a lie. For example he promised to fundamental change the US. One could say he has been very effective on acting on that promise. He mentioned the energy prices would necessarily skyrocket. While that was in reference to his Cap and Trade system, it appears to me that the driving force was to force traditional forms of energy to become very expansive. I believe doing so served several purposes, one of which is his chasing green energy unicorns.

    Most things he says are either lies or partial truths twisted to mislead. What he does or enables is what I look for.

    An OT from Sultan Knish regarding Jewish support for the Left. It speaks to the obliteration of identity that is being pushed upon Americans in general.

    “The Post-Jewish left mirrors the Post-American left in its disdain for its roots and its radical and destructive identity. Its promotion of a counter-Jewish identity based on ridiculing Jewishness and hostility to Israel is once again splitting the Jewish community into two camps. By elevating Schultz, Gilbert and J-Street, the left is asserting its power to define what being Jewish means. The backlash to them is a reminder that the left does not have the power that it thinks it does.

    Jewish Anti-Semitism is a very real phenomenon, but it’s not self-hatred, no more so than Bill Ayers’ desire to destroy America is self-hatred. The essence of the left is the rejection of the past in a perpetual war for a better future. The very nature of Jewish identity is built on a continuity of tradition and the nature of the left is to fly its progressive colors by showing contempt for tradition. There can be no balance between the two because to choose the one is to reject the other.

    The more the Democratic Party moves in tune with the left, the more it mirrors the bigotry of European leftist parties toward Jews and Israel. This is an inescapable process and the further left the party goes, the more Anti-Semitic it will become. It will still have plenty of Jewish members, but that means very little. The Communist Party had quite a few Jewish members. So did Mussolini’s National Fascist Party. Had Jews been allowed to join the Nazi Party, it would have had them too.”

    She does have a point, and please hear me out, as I know that this is a touchy subject. When the media labeled Mr. Zimmerman as a, “White Hispanic,” what they really meant was a, “white Hispanic.” They needed to have Mr. Zimmerman identified as white to fit the narrative of this being a racially motivated assassination. When it was learned that Mr. Zimmerman identifies with another group ethnically speaking, well that threatened to destroy the narrative. While he may be what ever is involved with the definition of white Hispanic, that is of no importance to the reasons why the term was used in this instance. As a Latino, Mr. Zimmerman is not suitable for the media lynching that is being attempted, but as someone who is white first, and secondarily a Latino, well then pass the rope brother.

    “Cheap Shots” would be a damn good name for a bar.

    Really? We are the most demonized group in the nation. You would think we did 9/11 reading the media.

    You would be brilliant at creating a conservative Hispanic wing of the Republican party. You wouldn’t even have to do it from the point of addressing grievances because you know so much history. Making people perennial victims is not what the world needs. We need ADULTS.

    @ yenta-fada:

    There is a group called The Hispanic Leadership Council that aims to do just that. See I don’t have a grievance since my ancestors were Imperialists. I just want my culture and heritage accepted. I want our contributions to America and the Western world acknowledge. We are not the enemy, Islam is the enemy and I wish more people on the Right would get that. Instead the media has turned us into evil villains. I mean we were 400 years ago, but now!

    I was raised as viewing Hispanic as cultural definition, not racial. After all biologically I am 1/4 Lebanese and 1/4 Sicilian.

    The Left has attempted to strip us of our heritage and our identity. The Right views us as invaders and leeches. I really don’t have a home politically. The funny part is I am to the Right of many people who consider themselves Right. Its just sad all around for me.

    As for the GOP is a lost cause. I want to start a Unity Party that stands for Free Markets, anti-Sharia, Color Blind society and Individual Freedom.

    You are conflating three issues. What we have is a disparity between a)reality, b)perception, and c)the narrative. Part of the problem is that there should be no difference between the three. It does not matter in the slightest that there exists any other ethnic groups outside of Black and White to these people at this moment in time. What really gets the racial juices flowing close to that riotous fervor, which can give our 24 hour news crews something to do for at least a week, is a good ole case of Whitey shooting an innocent Black kid. The only problem for the narrative arises when the kid turns out to not be quite so innocent and the shooter turns out not to be so white.

    The Latino community, whether you agree with this or not, has the perception of being part of the lefty alliance of victim hood. The reality is very different, but the two are separate, which is different still than the narrative, which is that La Razza speaks for all Hispanics now. this is probably the reason for the special form of hatred and vitriol being thrown at Rubio, who has the temerity to be well spoken, and firmly conservative. We see the same kind of crap for Allen West, Michelle Bachman, Eric Cantor, and anyone else who belongs to an ethnic group that is claimed by the lefty coalition.

    By the way, I thought we Jews perpetrated 9/11. Thank you ever so much for taking that rap, now I can skate.

    Excuse me, Hispanics can be of any Race. See this post. On the census Hispanics get to pick a race. 53% said White.
    You have been to South America, don’t act like White Hispanics don’t exist.

    By golly, you’re right! Hispanics/Latino/Spanish get their very own section first, then get to pick a race. Pretty spiffy -- the only language group set up that way. I mean, unless some of those nasty Italians or Portugese try to sneak in… In fact, I see even I have to check a box in that Hispanic, etc. section just to tell them I’m NOT Hispanic.

    Anyway, barring have Spanish speaking ancestors, if you’re white, check the damned box, STFD and STFU. Nobody cares about your ancestors.

    If Cold Warrior can contemplate another country to live in, so can you. just saying…you have realistic options. Thinking for yourself is a quality that is constantly being undermined in the US/Canada/Europe.
