Now It’s Up to Us

No matter how you attempt to interpret John Roberts’s incomprehensible decision on ObamaCare, it has made one thing clear — we can’t count on the Supreme Court to defend liberty, so now it’s up to us:

Fast & Furious Overseen by Anti-Gun Zealot Dennis Burke

What could be more treasonous than getting a Border Patrol agent killed by providing weapons to the vicious Mexican drug cartels that make a mockery of our semidefended border? One thing comes to mind: federal bureaurats committing this crime with the explicit intention of undermining the very Constitution they are sworn to uphold. Even as the Obama Regime resorts to executive privilege to hide behind its wall of “transparency,” the pieces are falling together fast and furious:

Dennis K. Burke, who as a lawyer for the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee in the 1990s was a key player behind the enactment of the 1994 assault-weapons ban, and who then went on to become Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano’s chief of staff, and a contributor to Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential primary campaign, and then a member of Obama’s transition team focusing on border-enforcement issues, ended up in the Obama administration as the U.S. attorney in Arizona responsible for overseeing Operation Fast and Furious.

The connection between the Fast & Furious operation and imposing restrictions on firearm sales has already been established in emails made public.

Eight days before Obama’s inauguration, on Jan. 12, 2009 — while Burke was working on the transition team — Obama met with Mexican President Felipe Calderon at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington, D.C. At that meeting, Obama “pledged” to take action to stop the flow of guns from the United States to Mexico.

This isn’t the only time Obama teamed up with Calderon against the USA. Mexico joined the Obama Injustice Department’s lawsuit against Arizona to prevent the enforcement of immigration law and to facilitate the displacement of Arizona’s population by Mexicans.

Eric Holder was of course on the same page as Burke, Obama, and the rest:

“Well, as President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” Holder said. “I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum.”

The talking point was spelled out clearly for repetition by the “mainstream” media: We have to ban guns in the USA because if we don’t there will be more bloodshed in Mexico. Never mind that our government was deliberately facilitating that bloodshed.

The explicit strategy behind Fast & Furious was not to track the guns, but to wait until they were used to murder people in Mexico, then trace them back to US gun stores. Obviously this would create excellent press for people devoted to undermining our Second Amendment liberties. But despite the Obama Regime’s total disregard for lives lost in Mexico (and there have been hundreds), problems developed when arms it supplied to Mexican criminals were used to kill Brian Terry.

No wonder Obama was willing to effectively confess his involvement by claiming executive privilege to suppress F&F documents subpoenaed by Congress. He is in full-fledged panic mode, now that the wheels are coming off the Hopey Changey crazy train. If Watergate was enough to drive a president out of office, this time we are in firing squad territory.

Democrat Class

A shopping tip for moonbats in light of the absurd ruling on ObamaCare: for only $30, you can gloat in the face of everyone who sees you, while contributing to the reelection campaign of the Moonbat Messiah:

obamacare-bfd

BFD refers to a famous quote spoken by the Vice President into the ear of our Nationalizer in Chief. Thank you, Obama campaign, for at least having the class to use initials, since the F stands for a particularly vulgar obscenity.

Congress Could Arrest Holder

Imagine if rule of law still prevailed in the fundamentally transformed USSA. Eric Holder would be dragged off in handcuffs to a prison cell, where the treasonous gunrunner belongs. Technically, it could still happen:

Despite voting to hold Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in contempt of Congress, there’s little House Republicans can do in the short term to compel him to turn over documents — unless it wanted to revisit a long-dormant power and arrest him. …the process, known as inherent contempt, is well-established by precedent, has been confirmed by multiple Supreme Court rulings, and is available to any Congress willing to force such a confrontation.

Don’t worry, moonbats. No one in Congress has the guts.

Republicans say it’s not even under consideration, with House Speaker John A. Boehner’s spokesman flatly ruling it out.

Nonetheless,

The House on Thursday voted 255-67 to hold Mr. Holder in criminal contempt, and 258-95 to pursue a case against him in the courts.

Since there was never any intention of enforcing this, there could be only two purposes to holding Holder in contempt: 1) to shame him into compliance with the Fast & Furious investigation (as if the arrogant punks running the Executive Branch had any shame whatsoever); and 2) to generate grudging media attention (Benedict Roberts’s shocking ObamaCare ruling washed it away).

The Price of Principle

To get an idea of why John Roberts might sell out to the authoritarian collectivists, have a look at the treatment Clarence Thomas receives from liberals as a reward for holding tight to constitutional principles. A couple sample tweets:

ObamaCare Will Inflict Vast Array of Tax Increases

Despite the absurd ruling by turncoat Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Junta, the individual mandate is a power grab, not a tax — not that there is any shortage of taxes in ObamaCare, as Americans for Tax Reform documents:

1. Excise tax on charitable hospitals ($50,000 per hospital hike).
2. Codification of the “economic substance doctrine” ($4.5 billion tax hike).
3. “Black liquor” tax hike ($23.6 billion hike).
4. Tax on innovator drug companies ($2.3 billion).
5. Blue Cross/Blue Shield tax hike ($400 million).
6. Tax on indoor tanning services ($2.7 billion).
7. Medicine cabinet tax ($5 billion).
8. HSA withdrawal tax hike ($1.4 billion).
9. Employer reporting of insurance on W2.
10. Surtax on investment income ($123 billion).
11. Hike in Medicare payroll tax ($86.8 billion).
12. Tax on medical device manufacturers ($20 billion).
13. Raise haircut for medical itemized deduction ($15.2 billion).
14. Special needs kids tax ($13 billion).
15. Elimination of tax deduction for employer-provided retirement Rx drug coverage.
16. Annual executive compensation limit for health insurance executives ($600 million).
17. Individual mandate excise “tax” (actually, this one is a penalty).
18. Employer mandate tax.
19. Tax on health insurers ($60.1 billion).
20. Excise tax on comprehensive health insurance plans ($32 billion).

In return for all the $billions upon $billions being looted from us, we get to watch vast armies of petty tyrant bureaucrats cut us off from our healthcare system.

Ramming ObamaCare down the country’s throat despite mass public resistance is the Manchurian Moonbat’s only achievement of any significance whatsoever. He ran on the incessantly repeated promise that he would not raise taxes “one dime” on 98% of Americans. That is, he ran on a brazen lie. Yet there are people who would vote for him again.

NAACP Demands an End to Texas Lottery

Under rule by moonbats, everyone has to live in accordance with proscriptions that are only appropriate for the most resolutely irresponsible. For example,

The Dallas NAACP chapter wants the Texas lottery to close up shop.

Members of the nation’s oldest civil-rights group say they are frustrated by poor and minority Texans spending their money on tickets instead of necessities such as rent or health insurance…

Now do you understand why the government has to provide housing and medical care?

Bureaucrats who do not succumb to the NAACP’s demands risk accusations of racism, the cudgel that instills terror in every weakling’s heart.

At least the reasoning is consistent. If minorities spend their whole welfare check on lottery tickets, no one should be allowed to buy lottery tickets. Similarly, if minorities run wild in the streets shooting each other over trivial disagreements, no one should be allowed to exercise their right to bear arms.

If government dependency infantilizes blacks any further, they will forget how to use toilets. Then will come demands that we all be forced to wear diapers.

Explaining John Roberts

If there is one legal scholar patriots can trust, it is the great Mark Levin. Click the pics below to hear is his professional analysis of the appalling decree by John Roberts on ObamaCare.

Segment 1:

obamacare signing

Segment 2:

john-roberts

Hear the following segments here.

Given that the lawless gibberish of his opinion clearly has no validity, various theories have been floated to explain Roberts’s treachery. The most likely to be true is the most obvious — and also the most alarming. Beltway political culture is completely dominated by left-wing oligarchical collectivists who shower adulation upon moonbats and scorn upon patriots. Weaker souls (e.g., the damp mouse David Souter) sell out to it.

If this is what happened with Roberts, disaster has struck. The far left now has five votes of nine in the ruling junta. We are down to our last defense against tyranny — what George Washington called the people’s liberty’s teeth.
