One Nation, Under Nine Robed Lawyers

The Supreme Court is an indispensable branch of the federal government, but it was never intended to be the most powerful of the three. If anything, there is evidence to suggest that the Founding Fathers meant for the judicial branch to have a much smaller role than the executive and the legislative. At the very least, it should be equal to Congress and the President.

Unfortunately, things have gotten twisted way out of control. Our Congress is gridlocked and wholly ineffective. The White House has spent the last eight years trying to gain power, being slapped back, trying again, and so on. This has provided the Supreme Court with the opportunity to expand its own power – a mission it has been successfully following for decades anyway.

Those black robes have a surprisingly magical effect on the American public. For no good reason whatsoever, we afford much more respect to these justices than we do our president or our congressmen. We even pretend somehow that they are above petty politics. We see then as learned wise men, immune to societal trends and beholden to the U.S. Constitution. We respond to bad decisions by hoping for a president who will stack the court with more of “our guys” instead of addressing the real problem: That the Supreme Court has way too much power in today’s America.

If our Supreme Court resembled the public myth that surrounds it, maybe we could turn a blind eye to its growing influence over our lives. If these really were men of such profound intelligence and such superior character, maybe we could get used to the idea of having them in charge.

But that’s not really the case, now is it?

The justices know better than to spend their nights talking to Chris Matthews. They don’t hold a press conference every few days. They don’t have to run nasty political campaigns that inspire Americans to get sick of them and rail against Washington’s culture. They get to sit in the shadows, pop up once a year or so with a handful of decisions, and then retreat back into obscurity. Everyone can name the president. Most people can probably name the House Speaker. How many can name the Chief Justice?

By strictly limiting their foray into the public dialogue, these justices can keep the myth alive. A myth that allows President Obama to slam Republicans for “politicizing” the process of confirming his nominee. As though this process has ever been anything other than political.

There aren’t two different Constitutions, so how can it be that so many Supreme Court rulings are split along partisan lines? Gee, if you didn’t know any better, you’d think these Gods of Wisdom were deciding based on their ideological beliefs and not on sound legal evidence. But no, it’s probably just a strangely-persistent coincidence.

Finding a solution to this quandary won’t be easy. The temptation is to elect a conservative president who promises to fill the court with conservative justices. Who cares if the court is all-powerful as long as we like their decisions, right? Most of us can probably recall at least one case where we got a decision we were thrilled about – even as we harbored doubts about the legal justification for the ruling. If not, maybe we can at least agree that those cases probably exist.

To be sure, a strongly-conservative Supreme Court would be greatly preferred to the one we have now.

But the truth is that the next 25 years of our country’s future should not hang on a single presidential election. Hillary Clinton’s election should not automatically doom us to a generation’s worth of intensely-liberal Supreme Court rulings.

We must begin dismantling the myth of a non-partisan court and start building a truly non-partisan court. We must insist that our presidents choose justices based on their commitment to the Constitution – not their judicial activism. We must pressure Congress to re-establish its role as a lawmaking body and remind them that they are not subservient to the court.

By filling the Supreme Court with constitutional originalists, we will uphold the very foundation of conservatism: Limiting the power of the federal government.

All three branches of it.

  1. Great article… Congress makes law, why does an OPINION from nine APPOINTED idiots become law???

    • <<o. ✸✸✸✸✸:✸✸✸✸✸:✸✸✸✸✸:✸✸✸✸✸:✸✸✸✸✸:✸✸✸✸✸:✸✸✸✸✸:✸✸✸✸✸:✸✸✸✸✸:✸✸✸✸✸:::::::!bq575p:….,….

    • In their defense, these people are not idiots. They are delightful people, and they get paid ga-zillions, which comes out of our pay packets. Yours and mine. They are not idiots.

      • Do you base that on their ridiculous performance?

      • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

        Well what have they been here lately?

      • They are are ALL lawyers, that’s the problem, our entire government is over-run with LAWYERS, no WONDER nothing ever gets done!

        • I resent those remarks. You have maligned me. I want to sue you.

          Your name and address? My lawyer needs to know.

        • Most lawyers are in the Senate and not enough business people in either house, but a lot of RINOS, DINOS who are OUR employees and treat us like we were theirs. We have got to take back the reins and force them out of office with NOOOOO perks or porks. They didn’t come to Congress with a large salary and perks, so we can stop all that extra on our backs when we kick them out!

      • Okay, then just you are~

    • it is one nation under God these bunch of Lawyers are Robed Weirdos i am going to use my Yugioh cards and i am going to challenge them to a Game of Duel monsters

    • It should not, but with the empty suit dictating, any one can make laws in this administration or SC. They are there ONLY to interpret present law and nothing more. Should incorporate an age limit of 70 and good health exams taken after age 60 so we know their minds are working and never, ever be owned again.

  2. Too late. We’ve already lost the USA due to the complicity of the do nothing capitulate Republican majorities. THANK YOU gutless wonders of the Republican majorities.

    • Rat bite. Democrats had complete control the first years of the skid marks presidency. What did they do except the nightmare Obamacare. The US is going to hell as the result of you progressives. Abortion, gay marriage, boys in girls bathrooms, cops suffering the wrath of Democrats for shooting thugs ( Democrat voter base), no responsibility, no accountability, ( example Hillary Clinton ), a president that has to seal his records ( what does he have to hide ?). Why don’t you thank the likes of Hairy Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Shumer and last but not least lying Hillary. How does it feel to support someone that is above the law and assholes like you don’t care. You, like a typical Democrat want to call names and blame everyone else.

    • But that’s the “Change” you wanted when you elected Obama to office……..twice!!!

      • I had nothing to do with Obama’s election & reelection. I voted for the RINO Republican in both the 2008 & 2012 elections. I voted Republicans into the majorities in the House & Senate. What’s that gotten me?? Nothing but LIES, attacks on conservatives, & capitulation to Obama & the Democrats with little or no fight at all.

        • Good job Ratbite! Keep voting Republican, especially this November! We need your vote!

          I for one abhor all the lies & spinning of facts that come from the mouths of Demo***its! Here is hopping for a change in White House leadership this November 2016!

    • Pleeze! You cannot be for real? I am going to try and ignore your remark! Hoping you
      were just being sarcastic!

      • DA tbs,
        pray tell, name me something the Republican majorities have done other than LIE to their voters, attack conservatives, & capitulate to Obama?? How’d the debt approach $20,000,000,000,000 with out the aid of the Republican majorities??m Praising the do nothing cowards of the Republican majorities would be sarcasm.

  3. When five unelected lawyers (majority of Supreme Court) can ride roughshod over the will of the people and that of their elected representatives, we do not have a democracy or a democratic republic. We have a krinocracy, a government by judiciary.

    Lincoln wanted our “government of the people, by the people, for the people” not to perish from the earth. Unfortunately, since five unelected lawyers can impose their personal politics on an entire people, that “government of the people” HAS perished. In its place we have a government of the judiciary, by the judiciary, for the judiciary.

    What is needed to return the government to the people is a constitutional amendment that prohibits any judge in any court from ruling any legislated law valid or invalid for any reason.

    • Under this Democrat administration ………… good luck with that!

    • Wrong the courts only function to to ensure that legislation confirms in letter as well as original spirit of the constitution.

      • Although the intent of the Supreme Court was to rule on whether a law was Constitutional or not has been altered to legislating from the bench. These justices can render decisions, but a decision is not a law. That falls under the duties of Congress. Roberts altered the original ACA(Obamacare) and since we had a democrat controlled House and Senate as well as a democratic President that alteration was allowed to stand.
        Just as in the gay marriage case, there is no basis in the Constitution that allows the court to negate states rights but once again the poor abused 14th Amendment was used as justification. Yet, even in this decision, it was not law as so many believed. Simple pandering to a small percentage of the population is not justification, nor legal authority, to alter Constitutional or State laws.

        • Roberts did not have a Democratic controlled House. Roberts also did not physically change anything. He recommended to Obama what needed to be changed in order for the ACA to be Constitutional. Harry Reid’s staff made that change which for a second time should have sent the bill back to the House for reconciliation. There was no reconciliation as defined by the Constitution done.

          • Robert’s did not have the authority to “recommend” anything to Obama. That recommendation should have been addressed to Congress since neither Roberts or Obama are charged with creating law.
            The reference to the democratic control was not against Roberts, but a background of how the congress was made up at the time of the case.

    • Thing about it, democracies can turn bad. We have a Constitutional Republic. Hence we need the Constitution as a basis for all law.

      • We did have a Constitutional Republic. However, as Jefferson warned it has been “rendered meaningless by construction”. The ability of the robed destroyers to divine “emanations of penumbras” while rejecting plain declarative language has done it in.

    • If “Lincoln wanted our “government of the people, by the people, for the people” not to perish from the earth” he would not have sent the Union Army onto the sovereign territory of any state member of the republic. The Tenth Amendment (states rights amendment) made that illegal because that was one reason many states were hesitant to ratify the Constitution. They wanted protection from a rogue federal government and the Tenth Amendment was written as that guarantee. He effectively violated the Ten Amendment and the Constitution which did not give him that authority. With that single action he made the Federal Government more powerful that the member states and we have been under that scourge ever since. Lincoln was no hero, he was our first dictator and was treated appropriately with execution for tyranny. The Civil War was a war between the federal government and southern states and was illegal from the beginning. Of course history books do not tell the story the way it actually happened but letters and documents written by many politicians of the time tell the truth.

      • Thank you. So few people are knowledgeable enough to know the actual history of that invasion and the many murders and all of the destruction committed by the invaders. Sort of like North Korea’s invasion of the South. Except the CSA did not have any help to defend their country.

        • Thank you too. Lots of people call me “unpatriotic” for telling the truth about Lincoln but it is what it is. American History particularly the Civil War is of particular interest to me. The nation the Founding Fathers established did not last very long within the parameters they set. Politics is a very dirty business and it didn’t take politicians but 9 decades to get the idea they were the power and the people were the subjects that they could control. As soon as the punishment for treason and corruption were virtually abolished the country was opened wide to all sorts of devious shenanigans by the residents of D.C. I know I am far from being alone in wishing for a return to a government as envisioned by those great men who were willing to lay their lives on the line for it. I wish they had not been as naïve to think the next generation after them would have the same type of honor and integrity. There is much work to be done to even return a little of the honor, patriotism and loyalty of those men to the current crop of misfits and despots running our country now. The next generation I fear has no idea or stomach for such a task. .

  4. Forget the will of the sheeple. The SCOTUS was conceived and empaneled to uphold our constitutional protections. (that was a period) It is therefore to be limited to that function. It is there to protect us from ourselves as well as any government no matter how democratically selected. Not reinterpretation to turn it into variable guide to the will of the political establishment or even the fickle winds of public opinion at any given moment.

  5. Nine-HIGHLY PARTISAN Robed LAWYERS. The Constitution of the United States of America be damned.

    • Guess you are for NWO which would do away with the Constitution/Bill Of Rights.
      Then the UN would take over, our land, their own police over us, our rights, freedom will be gone, and am sure we would not have those judges because the UN will have complete control over us!
      Where were you educated? Where were your parents to nurture the truth and not propaganda by our corrupt politicians! Humph!

    • The entire idea of the Supreme Court needs to be reformed because it indeed has violated it’s original intent and charter. The existence of the Supreme Court nullifies the entire idea of a Democratic Republic because it talks law making out of the hands of the legislature which is supposed to be the representatives of the people.

  6. Dexter L. Wilson

    First of all, any decision by the Justices are first supposed to go to Congress to determine the validity of their decision and vote for a law change if necessary. How do I know this? See below. Congress it is your job to point this out to the Justices and secondly, it is your job to impeach any jurist who having taken the oath to defend the Constitution who makes up law as they go.

    Thomas Jefferson wrote to William Jarvis, 09-28-1820 the following, “You
    seem…to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all
    constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one
    which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges
    are as honest as other men, AND NOT MORE SO (my emphasis)…and their
    power [is] the more dangerous, as they are in office for life and not
    responsible,as the other functionaries are, to the elective control.
    THE CONSTITUTION HAS ERECTED NO SUCH SINGLE TRIBUNAL, KNOWING THAT TO
    WHATEVER HANDS CONFIDED, WITH CORRUPTIONS OF TIME AND PARTY, ITS MEMBERS
    WOULD BECOME DESPOTS.” Guess what has happened!!! One last point, Jefferson would never have removed prayer or the Bible from public schools yet the Justices in their infinite stupidity did so using one of Jefferson’s letters to the Danbury Baptists which had no force of law. Congress, if the justices can do it you can use Jefferson’s letter to Jarvis to have a tribunal to recant any law created from the bench.

  7. Roberts “rewrote” the law by changing Obomacare to a tax agency. That was an illegal act on his part!

    • Roberts did indeed break the law by causing a change to the text of ObamaCare. However, even before that Harry Reid and his cohorts like Jonathan Gruber took a bill passed by the House for the purpose of making it easier for veterans to obtain their rightful benefits and totally changed the text by replacing it in it’s entirety with the text for ObamaCare. This should have caused the bill to be returned to the House for reconciliation. That is the standard procedure when even a single word is changed by the other chamber. However that never happened. Reid and his cohorts never returned the bill to the House and worse yet the House never demanded that it be done and the House was controlled by Republicans. So who is guilty of corruption and betrayal for ObamaCare? When the text was replaced they never even changed the number of the bill. All of this should be in the Congressional Record but I will bet it is not.

    • Eleanore Whitaker

      You are another moron. First of all, It isn’t called “Obamacare” and you can’t even spell the president’s name correctly because to do so would violate your allegiance to your CONfederate CONservatism.

      Sorry if you have to pay for your own healthcare now and can’t dump it on MY healthcare premiums as you did under the Bushista Bullshit laws.

      Sorry you can’t steal my 44 years of payroll deductions for SS and Medicare to fatten your Wall Street investments.

      How about this? The Affordable Care Act has over 35 million people who can now afford healthcare insurance. Why couldn’t they before? Was it because crooks like you were stealing from those who were paying outrageous healthcare premiums? Sorry Mr. Big Insurance Suckup if you can’t learn to earn our income honestly.

      But the rest of us have NO intentions of allowing jackasses like you to cause another 11 million medical bankruptcies like there were in 2008.

      • Those people are NOT now “affording healthcare” The working middle class is paying for it and they’re getting it. Nothing for something and something for nothing. That’s the Democommie way.

        • Eleanore Whitaker

          Liar…If over 21 million people are happy to HAVE healthcare insurance, who the hell are you to force them to go back and do without?

          So..tell us suck up…which Big insurance extortionist do YOU work for? Must miss all that fat profit that bought you your Jag every right crook?

          Just so you know…There are people who now pay less than $82 a month for their healthcare insurance. But a dumbass like you wants them to be hostages of the Big 6 HMO crooks rights so these crooks can charge them $300 a month for healthcare.

          When I was employed, my so-called employer paid healthcare insurance was paid by employees..that be the kind of crook BS you love?

          And that healthcare cost me 35% of my annual income. Try again dopeyass.

          • You’re half right. Typical parasite socialist claptrap

            “They” pay only $X/month for their healthcare. That’s because the rest of us are paying the rest of their bill either in higher premiums or in taxes.

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            No ditch digger BS artist..I am ALL right. I was an accounting manager for nearly 25 years…I think I know MORE than a piece windbag right wing shit like you knows about how much the ACA has saved.

            Here’s why dipshit…Now pay attention. I realize with a piss brain like your that’s hard to do.

            First of all, prior to the ACA, premiums went up EVERY year. To the point where employers had to dump the costs of employer healthcare plans on employees. Then your Bushass thought those HSA were God’s gift to Republicans…It allowed people to save up for their healthcare needs..one little hitch those bastard greedhead Republicans never mentioned…if you decide to retire, drop your employer’s healthcare plan, guess whaTurdBird? You have to first use ALL of the money in the HSA before you can get the Medicare you paid for.

            And, in 2008, according to the US Government Accountablity Office, Americans were paying up to 35% of their incomes for healthcare insurance.

            Sorry but when I retired, it was already costing me because those lazy ass mutton chops and corn pones couldn’t afford healthcare and when they needed it, they ran to the ER for healthcare that got dumped ON YOUR premiums. When they don’t pay cockface, you do. DUH…So much for what YOU know.

          • No more time to waste on the likes of you. However, I will say that I’m quite aware that my premiums were hiked up to cover the costs of the parasites. However, that price hike didn’t include the additional premium to cover the government bureaucrats riding along on the system.

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            Of course you don’t want to waste time on truth and fact I and not you can prove. Shitbags like you always move to those hater boy and girl sites so you can gush forth your hateful BS.

            Sorry asshole, but Big Insurance which YOU know NOTHING about has always found ways to dump the cost of healthcare so they can keep more of the premiums as profit.

            A shitbag like you wouldn’t know a price hike on insurance premiums until I remind you that there are insurance “tiers” for a reason.

            Do yourself a favor. Stop insisting like a mental patient. All you have to do to prove what I posted is call any of the Big 6 HMOs and they will tell you that when others don’t have insurance YOU are the one who has to make up that loss.

            Yeesh. Don’t these Mutton Chops and Corn Pone ever get any education?

          • You would not know a fact if it hit you square between the eyes. Facts are not important to you libs!

          • YOU TALK LIKE THE STUPID THAT YOU ARE AND ARE A LIBTURD………….ONLY LIBTURDS TALK STUPID LIKE YOU…………..FILTH MOUTH

          • Prior to Obumercare, over half of us received partially paid or even fully paid insurance through our work places. Your wrong in assuming that costs went up yearly prior to Obama’s BS. Each company brokered their insurance and could either stay with a plan or opt for cheaper plans. In some cases an employee who never had to pay, might have a weekly or biweekly deduction from their pay that they would hardly notice. The reason it was not noticed was the fact that many companies give a yearly pay increase that would absorb the cost. FYI, I’ve worked in several fields in the healthcare business and know a lot more from the billing end to the paying end, than you do. Your 2008 data is slanted.

          • Ooops! Now that they, like Eleanor, are losing the reasoning battle, the name calling starts in and what a potty mouth on you Eleanor. I have far more experience than 25 years and you ain’t getting it right!

          • IF YOU WORKED FOR A WORTHWHILE COMPANY………..LIKE THE CAR COMPANIES, INSURANCE COMPANIES, POST OFFICE, SCHOOLS, ETC. ETC………YOU WOULD STILL HAVE PROBLEMS BECAUSE OF THE STUPID OBOZOCARE……HOWEVER, MOST INSURANCE COMPANIES HAVE LOWERED OUR DEDUCTIBLE AND WE PAY MORE………..BECAUSE OF THE STUPID OBOZOCARE………THEY TAKE MY PREMIUMS OUT OF MY SOCIAL SECURITY……..STILL, I AM THANKFUL, I DO NOT HAVE TO FOOT THE WHOLE BILL……..

            YOU ELEANORE WHITAKER ARE A FILTHY MOUTHED BITCH THAT JUST LOVES TO COMPLAIN AND WHINE………….YOU SEEM TO HAVE NOTHING TO BE THANKFUL FOR SO WHY NOT JUST TAKE A TRIP TO FRANCE AND INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO ISIS.

          • name calling childishness…..
            EVERY Republican President has advocated such reforms…NIXON being the most notable.
            Nothing Socialist about Insurance Market Places where Companies compete….unless you are calling Romney a Socialist???

          • Michael Dennewitz

            You need to stop snorting that shit bubbah! ????

          • FYI, a’hole, I only paid $80 a month for my HMO and had to drop it because under Obamacare, my cost would have now been over $650 a month. Sounds to me like you’re running a con on our dime, as far as your healthcare goes.

          • Only 35% when we were told it would be 100% enjoying the benefits. Lack and alas another Obama lie and a way to make his and Moochelle’s friend richer. You are a sad sack and your just stay in the close where you can feel comfy!

          • IF THOSE PEOPLE THAT HIRED YOU DID NOT HELP PAY FOR YOUR INSURANCE YOU WOULD BE WITHOUT……….AFTER YOU RETIRE YOU ARE STILL GETTING THE SAME SERVICE……….WHICH I AM………..NO BS THERE………HOWEVER, NOW WITH THE STUPID OBAMACARE…….MY DEDUCTIBLE HAS BEEN LOWERED SO THAT I HAVE TO PAY MORE………THE DOCTORS HATE OBAMACARE AND SOMETIMES REFUSE TO TAKE THOSE THAT CARRY IT AS A PATIENT.

        • Pay me now….Pay me FAR more later…..
          Those illnesses are going to be paid..
          ….Early treatment is far less expensive.
          The old system forced folks, not able to get treatment, to wait until desperately ILL..
          ….and at that point the Treatment is far more expensive..Emergency rooms/in hospital stays etc.
          ….AMERICA still pays.
          ….insurance is less costly….
          but there is more…..Catastrophic Medical Bills under the old system led to millions and millions of medical bankruptcies……
          and those bankruptcies and the stress forced on desperate families led directly to
          millions and millions of divorces…and millions of children living in broken homes, below the poverty line.

          You can name call “Democommie”….which is just stupid, since EVERY Republican Conservative President advocated similar reforms, recognizing the damage all those catastrophic medical emergencies were doing to the NUCLEAR FAMILY ! !

          THAT is a PRO LIFE Policy.

          The Top Economic Tier in this Country received 94% of the famous Bush Job Creating Tax cuts…….created NO JOBS in this country….since 90% of the MONEY was invested over seas…..there, I am confident, it did produce jobs.

          The Top Economkc Tier is the only segment of America that prospered during the Bush
          Unpaid for wars…..
          The Top Economic Tier is the only segment of America that prospered during the Bush Depression.

          In total taxes actually paid
          That Top Economic Tier is, today, paying nearly half the taxes they paid a generation ago….just 29%…..Local, property, sales, state, federal income etc. after all free bees..

          THAT IS LESS than the next 3 LOWER economic tiers.

          Didn’t you get that TAX CUT ?

          about the middle class paying everything….there is a good reason….
          The Wealthy (including Trump) are constantly complaining about those MOOCHES or LEECHES at the bottom who are living off US….((that is a diversion, so you won’t look at how they are ripping off America, rigging the tax system))

          The BOTTOM economic tier….including all freebees, Food Stamps, etc….rent assistance programs…etc……

          ACTUALLY PAY 17% of their sub poverty income……”meat & potatoes money”

          PAY 17% !

      • and

        the majority of those medical bankruptcies

        led directly to ugly tragic divorces ,

        Leading in turn to millions & millions of children living in broken homes & in poverty….
        Repeated every year prior to the Affordable Care Act..(ObamaCare)

        I am old enough to remember Hillary’s Health Care Reform Effort in the 90’s.
        ….Millions of dollars of TV & Radio ads.
        ….Republicans promising to ADDRESS those short comings, once the Clinton Reforms were defeated…..

        ONCE the Republican Party was able to CROW VICTORY.
        ……you never heard ONE WORD about reform to the Cruel & Unfair Medical System in the USA.

        So Much For Pro Life Policies ! !

        ..
        By the way,

        all those bankruptcies are NOT PAID FOR by the “bankers” as TRUMP CROWED about ALL of his bankruptcies…..investers and tax payers pay those bills….all those unpaid catastrophic medical bills fall onto tax filings…

        OVER 19 million have finally been able to get insurance.

        • And the REST of us now have soaring premiums and the deductibles have gone through the roof! More than half of the state run exchanges have folded and the rest of them will soon follow. obummercare is a total PIECE OF SHIT!!!

          • THAT IS NOT A FACT….

            FactCheck.org

            “…Summary

            We’ve been batting down bogus claims about the Affordable Care Act
            for years, since 2009, when legislation was still in the debate stage.
            But they’ve been increasing in intensity in recent months as we approach
            Oct. 1, the date the insurance exchanges will be open for business for
            those buying their own insurance, mainly with the help of federal
            subsidies.

            So, more than three years after our last health-care-whoppers piece
            (published just before the law was signed in 2010), we’re giving readers
            a rundown of the top claims.

            Some have been around for years, and others are relatively new. Most
            touch on three topics: jobs, premium costs and medical care. For
            instance:

            Republicans have made the overblown claim that the law is a
            job-killer, but experts predict a small impact on mainly low-wage jobs.
            The Republican National Committee says 8.2 million part-timers can’t
            find full-time work “partly” due to the law. That’s the total number of
            part-time workers who want full-time jobs, and there’s no evidence from
            official jobs figures that the law has had an impact.

            Proponents say premiums will go down, while opponents say they’ll go
            up. In general, employer plans won’t be affected much, and a price
            change for individuals seeking their own insurance will vary from person
            to person. Obama claimed that all of the uninsured would see lower
            premiums than what they could get now (before accounting for federal
            subsidies), but that’s not the case.

            Critics continue to make scary claims about the government coming
            between you and your doctor, but the law doesn’t set up a government-run
            system. If anything, the law comes between you and your insurance
            company, forbidding them from capping your coverage or charging you more
            based on health status. Meanwhile, Obama can’t promise you can keep
            your plan. Employers are free to switch coverage, just as they were
            before.

            And there’s more. Since 2010, we’ve been debunking the persistent
            claim that members of Congress are somehow exempt from the law. They’re
            not. The administration’s recent decision to give exchanges leeway in
            how they verify suspect applications for subsidies sparked the false
            claim that Americans can list what they’d like for their incomes and
            won’t face verification.

            Beyond these more reasonable topics, we’ve seen our share of
            far-fetched viral messages about microchips being implanted in patients
            and forced home inspections by the government. Rest assured. Neither is
            true.

            Analysis

            The law
            is long, complicated and still being implemented. Many of the claims
            we’ve seen — and expect to see for some time to come — center on the
            impact on employers (or employees), premium rates and medical decisions.

            Jobs

            Claim: 8.2 million Americans can’t find full-time work partly due to Obamacare.

            FactCheck.org says: False.

            This assertion from the Republican National Committee echoes others
            conservative claims that the law is hindering part-timers from finding
            full-time jobs. But the RNC’s 8.2 million figure was the total number in
            June of part-time workers in the U.S. seeking full-time work — what the
            Bureau of Labor Statistics calls “part-time for economic reasons” — and
            there’s no evidence from BLS numbers
            that the law has had an impact on such workers. There were more in this
            “part-time for economic reasons” category in March 2010, when the
            Affordable Care Act was signed into law (9.1 million). The latest
            figure, from August, is 7.9 million.

            The
            law requires employers with 50 or more full-time employees to provide
            insurance or pay a fine. (This provision was delayed until 2015.)
            Full-time is defined as 30 hours per week. These details have fueled
            Republican claims that the law will cause — or is causing — employers to
            reduce their employees’ hours to get under the 30-hour/50-employee
            thresholds. It’s certainly possible that some employers will try to get
            by with fewer workers, or fewer worker-hours. And some among millions of
            part-timers seeking full-time work may have had their hours cut. But we
            can’t say how many that would be, and neither can the RNC.

            To be sure, there have been plenty of news reports of employers,
            particularly those, like retail stores or restaurants, with low-wage
            employees, saying they’re concerned and uncertain about the impact of
            the law, and they might cut hours or workers on their payrolls. We can’t
            predict what companies might do once the employer requirements take
            effect.

            While the BLS numbers don’t show an impact on part-time workers
            seeking full-time work, there is some anecdotal evidence of employers
            cutting the hours of part-time workers to get or keep them under a
            30-hour-a-week limit. The Washington Post, for instance, wrote
            about the state of Virginia implementing such a cap on the hours of
            part-timers, like adjunct faculty at Northern Virginia Community
            College. And other colleges have instituted such limits, according to press reports.
            These employers have not indicated in the news reports whether they
            would be hiring additional workers, or increasing the hours of others,
            to fill in the gaps.

            “ObamaCare by the Numbers,” Aug. 2

            Claim: The law is a job-killer.

            FactCheck.org says: Overblown.

            It’s true nonpartisan economic analyses have estimated a “small” loss
            of mainly low-wage jobs because of the law. But as one expert told us,
            there hasn’t been much analysis of this impact of the law because, he
            believes, economists think the impact will be minimal. Still,
            Republicans have continued to push the idea that the law will have a
            significant effect on jobs.

            This claim made our “Whoppers of 2011”
            list, and it has continued to be pushed in various forms — with the
            latest being the claims about part-time work. Mainly, the “job-killer”
            claims severely distort a 2010 nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office report
            that said the law would have a “small” impact on jobs. And that’s
            mainly from workers choosing to work less. For instance, some might work
            fewer hours if they receive subsidies to help them buy insurance, or
            those close to retirement may retire early, with some reassurance that
            they can buy insurance on their own.

            The CBO report said this decrease in the amount of labor in the
            economy would amount to one-half of 1 percent, which Republicans quickly
            translated into a loss of actual jobs. But, as we said, CBO clearly
            explained this would come about “primarily by reducing the amount of
            labor that workers choose to supply.”

            CBO did say, however, that the employer requirements to provide
            insurance or pay a fine “will probably cause some employers to respond
            by hiring fewer low-wage workers.” But they may hire more part-time or
            seasonal workers instead. CBO hasn’t put a number on these jobs.

            Other experts we’ve consulted have predicted a minimal impact. The
            Lewin Group, a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group that operates
            independently of the company, estimated a 150,000 to 300,000 job loss of
            minimum wage or near minimum wage positions. Not included is an unknown
            increase in jobs in health care and insurance. Altogether, Lewin’s
            then-senior vice president told us there would be a “small net job
            loss.”

            In July, claims about the law killing jobs took the form of a
            “mis-tweet” from several congressional Republicans, who wrongly tweeted
            “74% of small businesses will fire workers, cut hours under #Obamacare.”
            But the online, opt-in survey from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which
            opposes the law, found no more than 13 percent of the small businesses
            that responded said that. During the presidential campaign, Republican
            nominee Mitt Romney cited an earlier survey from the group to bolster
            his claims.

            Premiums

            Claim: Premiums are going up because of the law. Premiums are going down because of the law.

            FactCheck.org says: It depends.

            Politicians have been making these claims since before the law was
            passed — it was the first item on our list of whoppers back in 2010.
            Both sides have a penchant for misrepresenting studies on the matter to
            support their point. Our short answer — “it depends” — may be
            unsatisfactory to readers, but whether you’ll pay more or less than you
            would have without the law depends on your circumstances.

            Are you uninsured and have a preexisting condition? You’ll likely pay
            less than you would have otherwise. Are you uninsured but young and
            healthy? You’ll likely pay more (without accounting for any subsidies
            you may receive). Are you insured through your employer? You likely
            won’t see much change either way.

            Let’s start with employer-sponsored insurance. Employer-sponsored
            premiums did go up slightly due to the law from 2010 to 2011 (a 1
            percent to 3 percent increase, according to experts), because of added
            benefits, such as coverage for dependents up to age 26, free preventive
            care and an increase in caps on coverage. Overall, premiums for family
            plans jumped 9 percent that year, with the bulk of that due to higher
            medical costs, not, as critics claimed, the health care law. Since then, premium growth has been 4 percent on average for 2012 and 2013, modest growth rates historically.

            Note that premiums have been going up for years and will continue to
            do so — with or without the health care law. When Democrats make claims
            about premiums going down, they’re talking about premiums growing at a
            lower rate than they would have otherwise.

            The growth in national health spending
            (that’s spending from the government, businesses and individuals) from
            2009 to 2011 also has been at around 4 percent, the lowest level since
            such spending was first measured in 1960. President Obama has boasted
            that the ACA has helped make this happen. It could be playing some
            role, with an emphasis on new payment models, but experts say the cause
            is mainly the down economy. A Kaiser Family Foundation study said
            the economy was responsible for 77 percent of the slow growth rate, and
            that rate is expected to pick up as the economy recovers.

            Now, the big question mark is for those who buy their own insurance.
            We’ll know more in October, when the state and federal exchanges have
            published rates and are accepting applications. But even then, it will
            be difficult, if not impossible, to make generalizations. Some folks
            will pay more, some will pay less, than what they would have otherwise.
            Many who had purchased on the individual market in the past will get
            more generous benefits — which will be good news for some and irrelevant
            to others. And the vast majority buying their own exchange plans — 80
            percent, according to the CBO — will receive subsidies that bring their
            total out-of-pocket costs down.

            These plans sold to individuals can no longer charge more based on
            health status or gender, but they can vary premiums based on geography,
            age and tobacco use. Republicans have warned of a “rate shock” in this
            market, with the young and healthy being subject to higher premiums if
            the market is flooded with older and less healthy policyholders. A RAND study,
            published in August and sponsored by the Department of Health and Human
            Services and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, estimated
            there would be “no widespread trend toward sharply higher prices in the
            individual market,” in the words of the lead author. But rates would
            likely vary from state to state.

            The research group looked at 10 states and the U.S. overall,
            estimating no premium change for the U.S. at large and five states, a
            decline in two states, and an increase up to 43 percent in three states,
            not accounting for tax credits. The study, which held age, tobacco use
            and actuarial value (level of coverage) constant in comparisons, said
            average out-of-pocket costs would be unchanged or decline for all states
            once tax credits are factored in.

            But that’s one estimate from an economic model, with noted
            “limitations.” Says the RAND study: “Current data on nongroup premiums
            are limited, and there are many uncertainties about how individuals and
            insurers will respond to the complex policy changes introduced by the
            Affordable Care Act.” It cautions against “sweeping statements” about
            the impact on premiums, since rates will differ based on individual
            circumstances.

            That brings us back to our short answer: It depends.

            ” ‘Obamacare’ to cost $20,000 a Family?” March 1

            Claim: All of the uninsured will pay less on the exchanges
            than they could now on the individual market, even without federal
            subsidies.

            FactCheck.org says: False.

            President Obama made this claim at an Aug. 9 press conference, saying
            that beginning Oct. 1, the 15 percent of the population that’s
            uninsured would be able to “sign up for affordable quality health
            insurance at a significantly cheaper rate than what they can get right
            now on the individual market.” Obama went on to emphasize that that was
            before including federal subsidies. “And if even with lower premiums
            they still can’t afford it, we’re going to be able to provide them with a
            tax credit to help them buy it,” he added.

            But even Obama’s secretary of health and human services, Kathleen
            Sebelius, has acknowledged that young persons would likely pay more and
            older Americans would likely pay less on the insurance exchanges. As we
            explained, the reason is that the ACA changes how insurance companies
            can price these policies on the individual market — it forbids insurance
            companies from charging more for persons with preexisting conditions or
            based on gender, and limits them to charging older policyholders no
            more than three times what they charge to younger policyholders.
            Premiums can also vary based on geography and smoking — but smokers can
            only be charged 1.5 times the rate for nonsmokers.

            There won’t be any super-cheap plans for the young and healthy, nor
            sky-high premiums for older folks or those with health conditions.
            (High-deductible catastrophic plans,
            however, will be available to those under 30, or older Americans with
            hardship exemptions. They can be purchased only without federal
            subsidies.) Some on the exchanges will pay less; some will pay more than
            what they could get now. Economist Jonathan Gruber of the Massachusetts
            Institute of Technology was a paid adviser to both the Obama
            administration and then-Gov. Mitt Romney’s administration on health care
            plans. Gruber told us a “small share” of the uninsured would pay higher
            premiums on the exchanges. “The president is right for the average
            uninsured person, but not for all uninsured people,” he said.

            That’s before subsidies, of course. Only 10 percent of the uninsured
            earn too much to qualify for federal subsidies on the exchanges,
            according to a Kaiser Family Foundation report. But Obama claimed they’d
            pay less even without the federal help.

            “Obama Overpromises on Premiums,” Aug. 13

            Claim: 8.5 million Americans will receive rebates this year averaging about $100 each because of the health care law.

            FactCheck.org says: Misleading.

            President Obama has stretched the facts in making this boast about
            the law’s impact. The rebates are real, but most of them will go to
            companies offering insurance to their workers. Only those who buy their
            own insurance will get a rebate check directly. And the $100 is an
            average per family, not per person.

            The
            law requires insurance companies to spend at least 80 percent of
            premiums on health costs — as opposed to spending on administration and
            marketing, and, of course, profit. If companies don’t meet the 80/20
            ratio, they have to issue a rebate to consumers. Large group plans have
            to meet an 85/15 ratio. In 2012 and again in 2013 rebates were sent out,
            but Obama has pitched this as Americans receiving checks in the mail.
            This year, in a July 18 speech, he talked about “millions of Americans”
            opening letters from their insurers and being “pleasantly surprised with
            a check. In 2012, 13 million rebates went out, in all 50 states.
            Another 8.5 [million] rebates are being sent out this summer, averaging
            around 100 bucks each.”

            But most of the money went directly to employers who provided the
            policies to their workers. Of the 8.5 million benefiting from this
            provision in 2013, 2.7 million are on the individual market, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services,
            meaning the rebate would go directly to them. In 2012, 4 million of the
            13 million benefiting were on the individual market. Those with
            employer plans could still see a benefit, as savings are passed along in
            some way to them. But, as the Department of Labor, which spells out in
            its guidance on the matter, says, employers who pay part of the premium are entitled to part of the rebate.

            Medical Care

            Claim: You won’t be able to choose your own doctor.

            Claim: The government will be between you and your doctor.

            FactCheck.org says: False.

            These claims are variations on the fear that the government will be
            taking over health care — choosing your doctor, telling him or her what
            treatment to administer, etc. But the law doesn’t create a
            government-run system, as we’ve said many times. It actually greatly
            expands business for private insurance, by about 12 million new
            customers, according to Congressional Budget Office estimates. And individuals will choose their own doctors, just as they do now.

            These type of fear-mongering claims appear to have quieted a bit in
            2013 — along with the more extreme death-panel-type hysteria — but
            they’re still percolating. A TV ad this summer from the conservative
            Americans for Prosperity featured a mom named Julie, gently asking, “If
            we can’t pick our own doctor, how do I know my family’s going to get the
            care they need?” And: “Can I really trust the folks in Washington with
            my family’s health care?”

            It
            turns out, Julie doesn’t really mean that she might not be able to
            select her doctor herself. Part of the group’s support for the claim is
            the small net decline, as estimated by the CBO, in those who get
            insurance through their employer, a drop of 7 million people by 2018. (A
            total of 158 million are expected to have employer-sponsored coverage
            that year.) The CBO has said that those losing coverage would mainly be
            low-wage workers who could get subsidies to buy insurance on the
            exchanges. And, certainly, there’s a chance the doctor a worker had been
            seeing won’t be in the network of providers on a new plan. Some
            exchange policies could keep prices low by limiting those networks. But
            no one will choose policyholders’ doctors for them. They simply won’t be
            guaranteed that a new plan would have the same network of doctors, just
            as there’s no guarantee of that now (more on this in a minute).

            As for the government-coming-between-you-and-your-doctor claim, the
            law’s regulatory provisions are more like putting the government between
            you and your insurance company — and in a way that brings added
            benefits to consumers. The law says insurers can’t have caps on
            coverage, turn down customers based on preexisting conditions (or charge
            them more), and can’t spend more than 15 percent or 20 percent on
            non-medical-related costs (see Obama’s rebate claim above).

            Republicans also have attacked the Independent Payment Advisory Board
            as some kind of rationing board. But the IPAB — which is made up of
            medical professionals, health care experts, economists and consumer
            representatives — is charged with slowing the rate of growth of Medicare
            spending, and limited in how it can go about doing that. The law says
            the board’s proposals “shall not include any recommendation to ration
            health care, raise revenues or Medicare beneficiary premiums … increase
            Medicare beneficiary cost sharing (including deductibles, coinsurance,
            and co-payments), or otherwise restrict benefits or modify eligibility
            criteria.”

          You bet I love the Affordable Care Act. It stops my premiums from going through the roof to pay for shitbags like you who refuse to buy your own goddamn healthcare insurance and then run to the ER for cock itch.

          It was NOT unconstitutional you moronic asshole. President Obama was a Constitutional Law professor..not a trash hauler like you with Mafiosi ties.

          Everyone read that bill. That’s why the Big 6 HMOs Republican donors spent nearly $200 billion lobbying Kentucky Bourbon Boy McConnell to crash ALL healthcare reform. And don’t you little cockface boys hate it now that you have actually pay for your own healthcare?

          Keep your dick in your pants..that’ll stop that cock itch in a hurry and will keep my healthcare insurance premiums as low as they’ve been since the ACA. Now STFU because you have no idea what the hell you are talking about do you?

          • You so obviously know nothing about me, yet you think you know everything. Obummer knows nothing about the Constitution, he should but he doesn’t. First of all, ALL tax bills are required by the Constitution to originate in the House. This bill originated in the Senate and never saw the light of day in the House. This alone makes obummercare Unconstitutional.

            I purchase my own health care insurance, outside of obummercare. The folks you think have such great care under obummercare, can’t afford it due to an extremely high deductible and co payment. If this program is so good, why have 16 out of 23 exchanges closed down in such a short time period?

            As a typical liberal, you are totally blind to the facts. You, like most libs, think with your heart, not with your mind, probably because you are mindless. So crawl back into your hole. Every time you put your lack of thought into words, you show how brain dead you really are.

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            I know you by your post just as you “think” you know me. First of all you are a jackass. President Obama was a Constitutional Law Professor prior to his becoming Senator of IL. Now..eat shit and die you little dopey ass. That is a fact you hate.

            No all tax bills are NOT required to originate in the House and the ACA is not a tax anymore than SS or Medicare is. It is a payroll deduction…the same as your state deducts for alimony from men like you who knock women up and then abandon them and then when they file for child support or alimony, your employer has to deduct it from YOUR paycheck. Is that a tax too asshole?

            You are proving what a fukko freeloader you are. You just don’t want to grow up and act responsibly. Time to move out of Mommy’s basement and make it on your own.

            Don’t even go there. I was an accounting manager for nearly 25 years and a tech writer. You know shit about taxation.

            You are fuck off, lazy ass who can’t change your own depends. Now..do go play with your Rambo friends and have an anger and hate feast.

          • I cant say you are ignorant, you are stupid. If you have the ability, which I doubt, look at Article 1 Section 7 of the US Constitution. And yes, according to the not so supreme court, obummercare IS a tax. You were an accounting manager? That means you were not an account. You were a secretary for an accountant. Not to despise a secretary. My wife was the executive assistant to the the CPA’s in the firm, an executive assistant, but not a CPA. Her job was hell, but she was not a CPA. She will be the first to recognize she helped the firm through the tough tax seasons, but she was not a partner. She performed her job well and was highly thought of in the firm. She hired and fired the help. She was an important member of the firm. But she was not a partner. You make it sound like you were the boss. Not likely. I doubt any CPA firm would give the time of day. If so, I would never hire the firm you worked for. I have never been a free loader. I worked hard for 31 years and was a highly respected member of our department. After retirement, I moved from the Socialist State I lived in and became a volunteer fire fighter for the community I lived in. I later became the fire chief and the county I work for really appreciates the work I do. I doubt you would ever have such esteem. Your type wants to take from the community, not give to it. Like I said, crawl back into the hole you came from. You are a disgrace to your community.

      • It will eventually be repealed because it’s unaffordable. I know two people who went to the exchange, $450-$500 a month with $7,500 co-pays and deductibles before the insurance even kicks in. There’s still as many uninsured as there was before this failed bill.

      • It is Obamacare, because it was his deal and it is far from being affordable. It caused over 40.8 million to lose theirs. Another thing it caused is the fact people are paying more, for less coverage.There are currently over 74 million on Medicaid, because of it. We now have over 162 million receiving some form of government handout that all of us are paying for. The sad note is the fact that, that is over half our population. According to government data, there are only 151.3 million currently in the work force of this country. At least in the early 2000’s, we had over half of our population working and our healthcare was not only affordable, it covered more.
        To help you process this better, around 50 million now are retired, 10 million are listed as disabled, and over 53 million of our population are in school. If this helps you further, only 46.9 million in our country are still living in poverty.

        • Eleanore Whitaker

          Again you right wing fukkaroos lie. Now pay attention dipshit…NO one lost their healthcare insurance because those who never had it got a hair across their asses because the rest of us would no longer go broke from higher healthcare premium.

          You are a liar again. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) since the late 1990s has reported that there are less than 2 million Americans on Medicaid and it’s your fukkaroo states that have the highest number on Medicaid. To be exact, MS is no. 1, followed by LA, TN, KY, NC, FL and GA.

          If you can’t post truth and facts, don’t bother to post.

          At present, there are less than 1.1 million on welfare and ALL of them with the exception of Maine which is a purple state are Republican state welfare hogs.

          AL ranked number 1 in phony SSDI claims for things people up north go to work with every day: Type II Diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. But in AL, they refuse to touch state funding for state unemployment which they hand to their fukkaroo corporations as tax subsidies, and then run to the fed for SSDI rather than pay for their unemployed. YOu can hear the facts from an AL state HRD chieftain in an NPR 2013 interview when he admitted AL was saving over $2 million a year dumping their unemployed into phony SSDI paid for by the rest ofus.

          You freeloaders days of living off Dem state funding are OVER. Best get off those double wide trailer trash asses and get jobs…real jobs..not the Walmartian jobs you idiots live off of and then are forced to collect welfare to supplement your Walmartian paychecks.

          • YOU REALLY ARE A FILTHY MOUTHED DUMB LIBTURD BROAD……. MY CONDOLENCES TO YOUR FAMILY FOR HAVE TO PUT UP WITH YOU AND YOUR FILTHY MOUTH.

      • Ah, another Liberal idiot. Obamacare was forced on us, it was not done legally. RHINO Chief Justice Roberts saved that so-called Affordable Care Act from extinction by declaring that the government couldn’t fine someone for not buying Obamacare so he declared it a TAX. How illegal is that? The Democrats kept stating, over and over, that it wasn’t a tax yet Roberts did just that. That makes it illegal because ALL TAXES MUST ORIGINATE IN THE HOUSE. Got that? It is in the Constitution. Not in the Supreme Court or the Senate, IN THE HOUSE. Insurance companies are dropping Obamacare because they cannot afford the costs associated with it, have to raise the premiums making it less desirable for those that have to pay into it so they drop it. How many of those 35 million people you tout are getting it free, being paid for by working people being charged exorbitant premiums? Why didn’t the Democrats leave the rest of us alone and just deal with those that didn’t have insurance? The money that the government has paid out in the form of subsidies to those poor not being able to afford insurance, and the waste of administering the Act, could have provided insurance for those uninsured for years to come and the rest of us would have been happy to keep our doctor and plan, But that is not the Liberal way. They wanted total control over everybody and decided that Obamacare for everybody was the way to do it. Then they have access to everybody’s earnings and personal life along with medical requirements and can control who gets what, when and how much will be spent. Liberalism is a contagious disease of which you are inflicted. You want everybody to be controlled from cradle to grave and you support that by keeping like-minded idiots in office to wreak more damage on our Constitution and way of life so you can “feel good.” Liberals are the country’s greatest enemy, bar none. if Hillary is elected you can kiss your 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Amendments good-bye as we now know them because the politicized Supreme Court created by Hillary will do her bidding. I hope you enjoy life under total government control because, with Hillary it is coming and I am sure, after reading your comment above you will vote for her. Ugh!!!

      • We know what it is called, Eleanore, but we know who wanted it so we dubbed it. You really are strange not to know this!

    • Totally unconstitutional and invalidated the whole thing.

  8. Like all other groups of “politicians” [and that is what these supposedly unbiased, non-partisan people are] who let their power go to their heads, so too this group will go down in ignominy! Over the past decades, they have made some really foolish decisions which have shown their disdain for God. These decisions will come back to judge them! You don’t mock God and get away with it!

  9. They have their place however, see Dexter L..Wilson’s posting.

  10. We have certainly strayed away from the Constitution and the Supreme Court has been a huge reason. It has dissolved into a political group and not a legal group. Decisions are supposed to be on what the constitution says in context with the times and not on someone’s “intent”. As such, the Supreme Court has gone far astray from its origin. We now bargain for party affiliation when selecting justices and not on the unbiased legal thinking we had hoped for.

    • For your information…there has not been ONE generation where some groups were not saying the exact same thing you are saying.
      and, now, out of desperation……you choose to place your faith in a man who utters such eloquent statements:

      Carly Fiorina
      Former business executive
      “a running mate who was unable to catch on in her own failed campaign”
      “a V.P.candidate who failed badly”
      “campaign is dead”
      “failing campaign”
      “terrible at business”
      “did such a horrible job”
      “if you listen to Carly Fiorina for more than ten minutes straight, you develop a massive headache”
      “look at that face, just look at that face”

      “has zero chance”
      Lindsey Graham
      United States senator
      “failed presidential candidate”
      “no honor!”
      “I ran him out of the race like a little boy”
      “in the end he had no support”
      “ALL TALK AND NO ACTION!”
      “Failed presidential candidate”
      “should respect me”
      “nasty!”
      “dumb mouthpiece”
      “got zero against me- no cred!”
      “had zero in his presidential run before dropping out in disgrace”
      “embarrassed himself with his failed run for President”
      “embarrasses himself with endorsement of Bush”
      “so easy to beat!”
      Bobby Jindal
      Former Louisiana governor
      “spent $1,000 to register in New Hampshire & dropped out the next day. Such a waste!”
      “lightweight”“registered at less than 1 percent in the polls

  11. We need to unite and revolt! The tyranny of this administration of traitors and despots is much worse than the tyranny our Founding Father’s endured at the hands of King George III!! We would be better off if he was still in charge!! RISE UP YOU APATHETIC, FAT AND LAZY, SELF SERVING COWARDS!!!!!!

            The closest anyone has come is Deutsche Bank, which in 2005
            estimated that Trump was worth . . . $788 million. Several sources with
            knowledge of Trump’s finances have put the number significantly lower.

            And Trump has admitted to lying about his wealth.

            “Have you ever exaggerated in statements about your properties?” he was asked during a deposition in the mid 2000s. “I think everyone does,” Trump replied.
            “Does that mean that sometimes you’ll inflate the value of your properties in your statements?” the lawyer followed up. Trump: “Not beyond reason.”

            The $1.4 trillion federal budget deficit that Obama inherited in 2009 was in a large part due to the high rate of unemployment.

            When millions of people were put out of work in 2008 and 2009, it resulted in far less
            income taxes and less economic activity to generate federal revenue.

            As eleven million people have regained employment, there have been billions more tax dollars generated.

            As a result, the deficit has been shrinking each year. The 2015 deficit was $439 billion, the smallest deficit since 2007, and roughly 70% lower than it was in 2009.

      • Vote for Trump….Vote for a Mafia Bully-Tactics
        July 14 at 2:11 PM

        The attacks began to fly soon after Tarla Makaeff filed a 2010 fraud lawsuit against Trump University.

        First, Donald Trump filed a potentially ruinous defamation suit against the onetime customer of his real-estate seminar business. That case was tossed out by a judge, but it launched a recurring counteroffensive by Trump that put Makaeff “through the wringer,” according to her lawyers in a court filing, and has coincided with his presidential candidacy. Trump blasted the California yoga instructor during a presidential campaign rally, calling her a “horrible, horrible witness,” and then tweeted that she was “Disgraceful!”

        This spring, Makaeff persuaded the judge presiding over the Trump University case to let her remove her name as a plaintiff. She did not respond to a recent request for comment, choosing to step back into obscurity, out of the line of fire.

        Over decades in business, through his well-publicized romantic entanglements, and now as a presidential candidate, Trump has demonstrated that those who rise up to criticize him do so at their own peril.

        He deploys an array of tactics to fight back — countersuits, threats and personal insults, among others — while using stringent confidentiality agreements to guard against insider accounts from employees, business partners, his former spouses and now his campaign staffers.

        Trump’s tactics were apparent this week when court filings revealed that he has sought $10
        million in damages from Samuel Nunberg, alleging that the former campaign consultant violated a nondisclosure agreement by leaking confidential information to the press, according to a document provided by Nunberg’s lawyer.

        “Anybody who attacks him, it’s like buyer beware,” said Louise Sunshine, who has known Trump since the 1970s and worked closely with him as he set about reshaping Manhattan’s skyline.
        “Donald is very thin-skinned,” she said. “He takes everything personally. Everything.”

  14. INVENTOR INVENTED

    The Constitution gives the supreme court the right to issue edits that have to be obeyed-making legislation- but in Marbery vs Madison the court itself ruled against using writs of mandamus arguing that it was unconstitutional and undemocratic. If they didn’t give up that power this would have been a very different country.

  15. The president and politicians, both parties, are responsible for the extremely biased Supreme Court. A Justice should be apolitical, not favor either party, with only the Constitution, as it applies to the case at hand, being the sole, overriding authority. Democrat presidents have packed the court with Liberals like Sotomayor, Kagan and Ginsberg and the Republicans with Thomas, Alito, Roberts, a RINO who votes with the weather, Kennedy who is in the middle, could go either way, and Breyer who swings from middle to Left.This is so utterly and completely wrong. No Justice should be seated because of political party affiliation The requirement that they be fair and impartial goes out the window and political agendas are supported by judicial decision. We can thank our presidents and Congress for allowing this travesty of true fairness and impartiality. Soon we will be at a very important crossroads, the November election. Elect Hillary and she will do repairable harm to our government and country by nominating at least one and up to three justices, all most certainly of a Liberal bent. With the Court so slanted the attacks on our Constitution and in particular the 1st, 2nd 4th and 5th Amendments, which hinder the Liberal agenda, will be modified or rendered completely useless as rights. Legislation from the bench, started under the Obama administration will continue, political correctness will replace freedom of speech and Obamacare will be entrenched forever. Our country can withstand a Trump term of office and any harm done can be repaired. Not so with Hillary Clinton. Her damage will last for decades.

      The $1.4 trillion federal budget deficit that Obama inherited in 2009 was in a large part due to the high rate of unemployment.

      • I have been in this country a long time. The last 7 years are the worst I have ever seen except for the mid 1930’s. All that stuff you quoted out of Washington is all fabricated data and all lies.

        My first job I worked for $3 a month as a janitor. In College I worked in a restaurant for $1 a day and 2 meals. After I graduated with a BA in mathematics, I joined the Air Force and made the most money I had so far in my life.

        The last 7 years are the most messed up management by the Federal Government that the country can survive. Soon it will be a Slave State under Islam unless we wake up and cut out all the foolishness. You need to Wake up because you are obviously enamored by the lies and communist doctrine of the Democrat party. One day you will be a slave unless you wake up.

          Since President Barack Obama first took office:

          The U.S. trade deficit has shrunk by 24 percent; exports have grown faster than imports.
          (after decades of growing disparity)

          The number of immigrants in the U.S. illegally has gone down

          and
          —–by 9 percent
          according to another.

          The economy has added 9.7 ++ million jobs.

          Unemployment rate dropped below the historical norm. ** ((4.9% down from 10%+))

          The buying power of the average worker’s weekly paycheck is up 4.2 percent.

          Corporate profits are running 144 percent higher and stock prices have soared.

          only 3.3% annually, the lowest rate since Eisenhower was president.

          You may have heard critics say that President Obama

          is spending money wildly
          and

          running up our debt.

          According to this article from Forbes, Obama has increased spending

          by 1.4% annually,

          far less than President Reagan (8.7%)

          far less than President George W. Bush (8.1%).

          According to a more recent article from the Washington Post,

          Obama has increased spending 3.3% annually. In
          either case, Obama has increased spending less than any

          president since
          Eisenhower.

          than they were at almost any point in the last 50 years.

          After President Obama took office, thousands of Tea Party members all over
          the country held rallies protesting Obama’s tax increases.

          ((they were purposely mislead by politicians wanting their vote))

          At that time,President Obama had actually passed several tax cuts to stimulate the
          economy.

        • Obama has killed more Terrorist Leaders that any world leader !

        • You are absolutely right!

      • Go TRUMP 2016!

        • Go TRUMP GO.
          …and you know where you can go….

          Trump boasted that he “predicted Osama bin Laden.”
          Nope.
          The book which Trump published in 2000 mentioned bin Laden once,
          and predicted NOTHING about bin Laden’s future plans.

          Trump “heard” that Obama is “thinking about signing an executive order where he wants to take your guns away.”

          If so, he misheard.

          What Obama reportedly considered was requiring large-volume private gun
          dealers to conduct background checks, not confiscating firearms from
          those who own them.

          Trump said he “heard” the Obama administration plans to accept
          200,000 Syrian refugees — even upping that wildly inaccurate number to
          250,000 in another speech.
          Nope
          and
          nope.

          The number is about 10,000. and then only after a 2 year Vetting thru 4 international intelligence agencies.

          Trump said he got to know Putin “very well” while the
          two were on CBS’ “60 Minutes.”
          Nope.
          The two men were interviewed separately,
          in different countries
          thousands of miles apart….and Putin said he has never spoken to Trump.

          Trump claimed his campaign is “100 percent” self-funded.
          Nope.
          At the time, more than 50 percent of his campaign’s funds had come from outside contributors.
          ..The Republican Party had him sign an agreement not to RAID their contributions in order to pay himself back, since he has LOANED HIS CAMPAIGN money…he did not truly SELF FUND at all…..he self loaned.

          Trump said his tax plan is revenue neutral.
          Nope.

          The pro-business Tax Foundation estimated the Trump plan would reduce revenues to the Treasury by more than $10 trillion over 10 years, even assuming his plan would create economic growth.

          (which they were not confident about at all)

          Trump told the story of a 2-year old who got autism a week after the child got a vaccine. But there’s no evidence of such a link.

          The study that claimed to have found a link between
          vaccines and autism has been exposed as an

          “elaborate fraud.”
          It was retracted five years ago by the journal that published it, and
          the author was stripped of his license to practice medicine in Britain.

          Trump said Mexico doesn’t have a birthright citizenship policy.
          It does.

          Trump claimed credit for getting Ford Motor Co. to move a plant from Mexico to Ohio. Ford says that’s baloney;
          it made the decision years before Trump even announced his run for president.

          Trump denied that he ever called female adversaries some of these things:

          “fat pigs,

          dogs,

          slobs and

          disgusting animals.”

          He used all of those terms….most were recorded on TV &/or radio.

          Trump said in June “there are no jobs” to be had,
          when official statistics were showing 5.4 million job openings
          — the most in 15 years.

          Trump claimed economic growth in the U.S. has “never” been below
          zero
          — until the third quarter of 2015.
          “Who ever heard of this?” he asked.

  18. Yes, this is a great revealing article and I have even more interesting eye opening information about our legal profession, law schools and the U.S. Supreme Courts.

    John A. Stormer wrote a very interesting and revealing book in 2005 titled “BETRAYED BY THE BENCH” and published by Liberty Bell Press. “BETRAYED BY THE BENCH” investigates early and continuing efforts of socialist law school directors and deans who devised a scheme to replace individualism justice in the U.S.A. with socialism and social justice. A copy of “BETRAYED BY THE BENCH” can be bought for as low as $1.79 used at Amazon.com and it is worth every single cent if you really want to learn who rules the U.S.A. and strong-arms the Legislative and Executive Branches of our Federal Government, what they are quietly and slowly doing to our once free nation… And, ironically we can see the result of their effort in U.S. Supreme Court decisions since 1800…

  20. You can’t call yourself a constitutional-ist if you don’t read the constitution.

    When 535 people vote and have 267 + 51 vote for it, not only is that a questionable mandate but each of those 318 might have had a slightly different understanding of the bill.

    It is rare for a legislator to be a constitutional scholar. Obama was one of the few. Some writers bray about legislators violating the Second Amendment but wink when they violate the First by writing religious laws.

    It is the responsibility of those 9 people to determine the constitutionality and to determine what is the shared intent among all those who voted for the bill. They don’t play games by looking up one word in one dictionary and on that basis deciding someone’s life.

    These experts should try learning some case law before shooting off their mouths.

    • Obama claims to be a Constitutional Scholar but has not provided any proof

      • I discussed the Supreme Court and someone without the courage to use his real name saw only a chance to call the President a liar. Readers should know that the President has a doctorate in law (JD) and has taught accredited courses (unlike his critics).

        The New York Times investigated this in 2008. One of the most extensive articles may be found at http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/30/us/politics/30law.html. This was not a puff piece in that the writer felt Obama’s political aspirations overshadowed his scholarly ones.

        His own professor, recognized constitutional scholar Lawrence Tribe, speaks highly of him at http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/Articles/2014/07/09/How-Barack-Obama-Amazed-His-Harvard-Law-Professor

        That commie front Fortune magazine reports a scholarly article from Obama that was published recently in JAMA. Some considered it too “nerdy”. One law professor, meanwhile, used the occasion to tease Obama that he was still beholden to his former life as an academic: http://fortune.com/2016/07/11/obama-jama/

        It would raise the quality of discussion here if we would all state what we could document rather than state what we wish were true while calling others liars.

        • funny how you never said where you had seen a document showing proof of what you said A few articles is not legal proof of anything. And as far as calling a liar he is one and I am man enough if I ever see him face to face I would say it to his face

          • Sorry, I won’t play that game and won’t reply again. Whether it is Whitewater or Benghazi or birthers, one side makes an accusation without proof and expects the other to dis-prove it. The one making the extreme claim that opposes what is accepted by the common science or the common history or the common news reporting is responsible for proving that claim.

            The fact that you won’t reveal your own name while I reveal mine says that I’m willing to stand behind my claim and you are not. I have actually read the research papers that carry his name but am not willing to waste any more time with grade-school name-calling.

    • Funny how the Republicant Govern Party refused to discuss the nominee for the Supreme court and suffers some stinging defeats without the 9 th justice there…..every one who know the nominee, says on at least 2 of those decisions he would have voted to block the victory for the Democrats.

  25. The reason there are three branches of government, is to minimize the affect of swings from overly liberal to overly conservative. The way the Supreme Court is structured, with lifetime appointments, is to keep yearly swings in political likes and dislikes from changing the entire complexion of our body of laws in a relatively short time span. That structure has worked very well for this country for over 200 years. Just because the Supreme Court might have rulings that go against your particular political persuasion does not mean the whole structure of our government should be changed. The founding fathers were very wise in the way they created the three branches of our government. That is one of the things that leads to such stability in our country.

    • Its like Baseball commissioners with lifetime contracts …a man worried about his job may make biased decisions on behalf of those who hired him.

          changed.”

          Absolutely untrue. (you nose in growing Donald)

          5. March 29:

          Trump said the Secret Service was worried about Fields, alleging, “She
          went through the Secret Service, she had a pen in her hand, which
          Service Service is not liking because they don’t know what it is,
          whether it’s a little bomb…”

          As Katie Pavlich of Townhall noted, “All reporters at campaign events, like regular attendees, go through Secret
          Service
          security before being allowed into a venue. The security is thorough,
          with a back check, wanding and a metal detector walk through.
          Fields
          wasn’t carrying a knife, she was carrying a pen and if the Secret
          Service thought it was dangerous, they would have taken it from her at

          Debunked.

          7. March 26:
          Trump lies,

          “There’s
          a tremendous tax that we pay when we (American businesses) go into
          China, whereas when China sells to us there’s no tax.” China’s tariffs
          are higher than those imposed by the United States, but the Chinese
          exporters are taxed when they sell in the United States.

          8. March 23:

          Trump accuses Cruz of coordinating with Super PAC in its ad featuring a nude Melania Trump. Tweeting, “Lyin’ Ted
          Cruz denied that he had anything to do with the G.Q. model photo post of Melania. That’s why we call him Lyin’ Ted!” Debunked.

          9. March 21:
          Trump lies,

          “Out of 67 counties (in Florida), I won 66, which is unprecedented. It’s never happened before.”

          Nope. NOT ONE WORD IS TRUE !

          In 2004, John Kerry won all 67 counties for the Democrats;

          in 2000, Al Gore won all 67 for the Democrats

          and. George W. Bush won all 67 for Republicans.

          In 1996, Bob Dole took 66 of 67 counties for the GOP primary

          and the 67th was a tie between Dole and Pat Buchanan in Washington County.

          10. March 19:
          Trump said the 2016 federal omnibus spending bill

          “funds illegal immigrants coming in and through your border, right through Phoenix.”
          Nope.

          A Damnable lie !

          The
          omnibus bill does not fund undocumented immigrants “coming in and
          through” the border; it funds the very agency tasked with keeping
          undocumented immigrants out, U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

          11. March 17:
          Trump on Fox News denied that he ever accused President George W. Bush of lying about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

          “I didn’t say lie.

          I said he may have lied.”

          That’s false.

          Trump said in a February that Bush “lied.”

          12. March 13:

          Trump states that the man who rushed the stage in Dayton, Ohio, “had
          chatter about ISIS, or with ISIS” in his social media posts.

          Trump was fooled by a hoax video; ((or used the faked video to tell a lie))
          the claim is ludicrous.

          and
          don’t forget the classic about TRUMP and PUTIN getting to know one
          another while waiting to be interviewed by 60 MINUTES…and they were
          forced to wait hours for a film crew…..
          Never Mind the fact that
          they were interviewed seperately…..
          in different countries….
          thousands of miles apart….
          on different days…..
          and

          ((wait for it))
          Putin says he has never spoken to Trump!

          • Go TRUMP 2016!
            Folk like you are gaining votes for Trump! Keep on flapping your lips!

          • HO HO HO !

            FactCheck.org
            Trump boasted that he “predicted Osama bin Laden.”
            Nope.

            The book which Trump published in 2000 mentioned bin Laden once, and predicted nothing about bin Laden’s future plans.
            OOOOPS!!

            Trump “heard” that Obama is “thinking about signing an executive order where he wants to take your guns away.”

            If so, he misheard,

            another NOPE

            What
            Obama reportedly considered was requiring large-volume private gun
            dealers to conduct background checks, not confiscating firearms from
            those who own them.

            Trump said he “heard” the Obama administration plans to accept
            200,000 Syrian refugees — even upping that wildly inaccurate number to
            250,000 in another speech. Nope

            and
            nope.

            The number is about 10,000. AND then after a two year Vetting thru international & US intelligence agencies.

            Trump said he got to know Putin “very well” while the two were on CBS’ “60 Minutes.” Nope.

            The two men were interviewed separately,

            in different countries

            thousands of miles apart.

            Trump claimed his campaign is “100 percent” self-funded.

            Nope.

            At the time, more than 50 percent of his campaign’s funds had come from outside contributors…today only a tiny fraction has been contributed by Trump to his own campaign.

            Trump said his tax plan is revenue neutral.

            Nope.
            The pro-business Tax Foundation estimated
            the Trump plan would reduce revenues to the Treasury by more than $10
            trillion over 10 years, even assuming his plan would create economic
            growth. (which they doubt)

            Trump told the story of a 2-year old who got autism a week after the child got a vaccine. But there’s no evidence
            of such a link.

            The study that claimed to have found a link between
            vaccines and autism has been exposed as an “elaborate fraud.”
            It was
            retracted five years ago by the journal that published it, and the
            author was stripped of his license to practice medicine in Britain.

            Trump said Mexico doesn’t have a birthright citizenship policy.

            It does.

            Trump claimed credit for getting Ford Motor Co. to move a plant from Mexico to Ohio. Ford says that’s baloney;
            it made the decision years before Trump even announced his run for president.

            Trump denied that he ever called female adversaries some of these things:

            “fat pigs,

            dogs,

            slobs and

            disgusting animals.”
            He used all of those terms.

            Trump said in June “there are no jobs” to be had, when official statistics were showing 5.4 million job openings — the most in 15 years.

            Trump claimed economic growth in the U.S. has “never” been below
            zero
            — until the third quarter of 2015.

            “Who ever heard of this?” he
            asked.

            Except it’s not unheard of. Economic growth has been below zero 42 times since 1946

          • Hi, Rick! Thanks for responding to my post!

  27. Time for a “Re-Do” for the American Govt! Too much corruption, too much narcissism, no Moral Compass…the Devils Amusement Park.
    Wake up Americans before it is too late!

  28. Eleanore Whitaker

    Congress DOES NOT MAKE Laws! Obviously some men in this country have NEVER read their Constitution. The House and Senate can only propose and sponsor bills that must be approved by BOTH House and Senate and signed by the Executive Branch of Government…aka the President.

    He has the option to veto any legislation deemed not in the best interests of the entire country.

    As for the Supreme Court, right wing men hate it that there are now 3 women on the SC: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

    They are the Judiciary branch and 3rd branch of government who read the legalities of any laws signed off by the President put to him by the approval of House and Senate.

    You can drop your bullshit act that the House of Reps. and Speaker Ryan ARE the ONLY government. The House, Senate, SC and President are ALL Equal under the Constitution. Get an education dipshit. We are all fed up having to do what your state tax dollars don’t do…educate the dipshits in your states.

  29. 1st of all, there are only 8 because the Republican Party has, once again, refused to govern…

    but merely oppose…..

    REALITY CHECK……

    How did that Black, Kenyan, Marxist, Fascist, Muslim, Left Wing Liberation Christian, Atheist managed to do all of this??????

    ***The Stock Market continues to set new record highs since President Obama took office.

    Since early 2009,
    there has been a steady upward trend in stock market growth.

    The Dow Jones Industrial averages reached an all-time high of 18,292 in May, 2015.

    Since
    most Americans have 401K retirement investments in the stock market,
    this growth benefits millions of middle class Americans.

    ( By every reasonable measure,
    the USA has come out of the Near Destruction of the World’s Economy and the Near Destruction of the Free Enterprise system under the BUSH / Republican Party…better than ANY COUNTRY on the PLANET. )

    ***The Federal budget deficit is shrinking. It’s been reduced by two-thirds since 2009.

    The $1.4 trillion federal budget deficit that Obama inherited in 2009 was in a large part due to the high rate of unemployment.

    When millions of people were put out of work in 2008 and 2009, it resulted in far less income taxes and less economic activity to generate federal revenue.

    As eleven million people have regained employment,
    there have been billions more tax dollars generated.

    As a result, the deficit has been shrinking each year.

    (( WITHOUT the usual BLOOD LETTING BUDGET CUTS proposed, year after year, By the Republican
    Party ))

    The 2015 deficit was $439 billion, the smallest deficit since 2007,

    and roughly 70% lower than it was in 2009.

    Source: What is the Deficit?: USGovernmentSpending.com.

    *** Under President Obama, government spending has increased only 3.3% annually, the lowest rate since Eisenhower was president.

    ((THAT is less than half the increased Spending which occurred during the BUSH Administration….and
    That is less than half the increased Spending which occurred during the Reagan Administration.))

  30. They have been hijacked by this Godless, Satan worshipping homo and lezbo regime just as every department – FBI the latest to be revealed – has been!

    Here we go again, and again, and again, another false flag timed conveniently as the Muslim-Marxist was out of the country and right after the disgraceful mockery of the laws of justice experienced with the ole ugly commie whore “Hillary the Pillory’s” get out of jail free card pass! This communist NWO regime has total control of every facet of government as they cleverly dismantle America! One shooter, two shooters, three shooters, four shooters – they don’t know, they say, but they do know because this Godless, Satan worshipping regime has their dirty hands all over this one just as the previous ones – Orlando; Boston Bomber, San Bernardino – and the future ones! This was a well thought out and planned operation and not some spontaneous, last second spur of the moment get even massacre! The sheeple just can’t or don’t want to believe that we have EVIL, POWER hungry demons at the top of our government but in the end when it is too late they will of wished that they had paid attention and took action instead of keeping their heads up their asses! REVOLUTION will be the SOLUTION – guaranteed; that is why these false flag operations will escalate in order for these Godless ghouls to brainwash and bully the sheeple into gun control, the last nail in the coffin of the “TRANSFORMED * TRANSGENDERED” AMERIKA!

  31. The farce is that the Supreme Court is supposed to be non-biased and rule only on a given law, not distort it with their own political agenda. Supreme Court rulings today contradict old ones from the past. Yet the Constitution has not been re-written.

  32. I can tell rick kooi that you don’t live in Illinois where the Chicago democrats are alive and well and doing what they do best.JUST LIKE THE DEMOCRATS THAT RUN MY COUNTRY.Spend,spend,spend until there”ain’t”no more,then borrow,borrow,borrow and don’t worry about future generations,just spend away their future.If you lived in my state you wouldn’t be too happy with the democrats either.By the way,do you like Obama care as much as I do.If you do thank me for helping pay your premium.

  33. Who do you think TRUMP will actually appoint to the Supremes, when he is not trying to buy votes with lies.

    “…Is Trump actually committed to rolling back government-run health
    care? No. Last fall
    — on a Republican debate stage, no less
    — he touted
    the virtues of single-payer health care.

    And on abortion, Planned Parenthood funding, the crisis in Syria, Syrian
    refugees, his opinion of the flat tax, and a host of other issues, it’s
    simply impossible to know what Trump actually thinks, because he has
    repeatedly taken contradictory positions.

    We’er on a road that’s will lead to a path of no return.

  36. Michael Dennewitz

    We have entered into a phase where “WE THE PEOPLE” have no say at all. Admit it, even when one expresses himself by voting – doesn’t even count. Like the old saying, “It’s all dependant on WHO’S DOING THE COUNTING!” When illegals and dead people can vote numerous times, you actually believe in your heart that Mr Trump would get a fair shake?? FOR GOD’S SAKES AMERICA, WAKE THE HE’LL UP !!!?

    • an amazingly ignorant comment….YOU are approaching calling for an insurrection
      YOU have the freedom to utter ignorant imaginings!
      YOU have the freedom to vote, to organize….do so

      Mr Trump get a fair shake…….the man is an authoritarian….
      He attacks Fellow Republicans
      He attacks Democrats
      He attacks the independent judiciay
      He attacks individual judges
      He attacks our FREE press
      He locks out the Free Press that disagrees with him.
      He attacks the Supreme Court.
      He attacks our NATO alliance at a time Russia is attempting to add to its territory
      He attacks our Allies
      He lies about everything….
      and he admires Hussein and IS ADMIRED by PUTIN, former head of the bloody KGB.
      He is an authoritarian on the Rise……
      If you read history……..find articles written in the 1920 Germany about Hitler…..

    • With all the Republican Party’s demand for VOTER ID.
      …THEY HAVE BEEN TITALLY UNABLE TO PROVE
      ANY OF THOSE STUPID COMMENTS YOU JUST MADE !!!!!
      “illegals and dead people can vote numerous times”…
      …DOES NOT HAPPEN….
      it is
      a manufacture
      of you conspiratorial mind .
      Paranoid imaginings.

    • I’M AWAKE ! I wouldn’t vote for GOV. ‘SHADY MIKE’ PENCE(the nice name we call him in Indiana, I just call him what he is ‘fascist bigot’) ANTI CONSTITUTIONAL GRAND DRAGON of INDIANA based on his idea of justice(see below). I bet you thought the Supremes were just peachy keen during the coup of 2000 when Scalia elected POS DUBYA for his ‘buds’ in the ‘Project for a New American Century’ who gave us 9/11 and their ‘many conflicts on many fronts simultaneously’ goal we still have with us today. I hope Mr. Millertrump won’t need 9 judges come November. Miller/Pence court… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e9edfa4b1fbabd3afa96f84c4ff034ea465a68f1ecfddd284f170db17c90dfb4.png

  37. The SCOTUS should not be given life time appointments. Many of them belong in nursing homes with depends diapers. Also, they screw up more things then they get right. They do not rule by the Constitution or even common sense, but by their political leanings. I refer to SCOTUS as SCROTUM.

  38. for all the lame or retarded folks who will state they will nevr vote for trump, If you do not cast your ballot for trump, we get hilary and 3 to 4 scrotum picks.
    Is this to hard to comprehend ??

    • Trumps SCOTUS list is the reason I’m supporting Trump…. Presidents come and go every 4 to 8 years. Supreme Court Justices stay until death, health, or retirement prevails….

  39. ALL POLITICAL HACKS!!!!! OBAMA IS STILL TRYING TO LOAD THE COURT!

    • And if Hillary gets in…, Obama get’s his wish….. eek!

    • Court Appointments
      across the country go unfilled,
      criminals untried,
      because the Republicant-govern party has steadfastly refused to consider let alone approve !

      HOW, pray tell, does “OBAMA IS STILL TRYING TO LOAD THE COURT” !

      • Let’s talk Sanctuary Cities…..? Republican or Democrat? Right…..
        Ignorant people have the potential of being cured with knowledge, all it takes is curiosity and the will to learn. Blindness on the other hand…, I believe you have the answers to that one…..

    • liberal victories FROM the 4/4 tie in the court….because the REPUBLICANT-govern party refuses to do their jobs.

    • Obstructions and neglect by Baggers and Republicans seems to leave your comment in the asinine file.

  40. Read back in the Supreme Court archives and see how much different the rulings are now from 100 years ago. Did the Constitution get rewritten? I have not found that anywhere. Nor have amendments changed the original Constitution except on matters of changes in society. They help to clarify mostly. so what has changed? Insertion of very biased political leanings and he nasty word, “intent”.

  41. Blather … blather … blather ………….

    • OBAMA SPENDING INCREASE “….far less than President Reagan (8.7%) or George W. Bush (8.1%).
      According to a more recent article from the Washington Post, Obama has increased spending 3.3% annually…..
      Obama has increased spending less than any president since Eisenhower.

      Sources: Who Is the Smallest Government Spender Since Eisenhower?

  42. I say, at the Convention of States, which I am a District Captain, let them agree to amend the Constitution to only ELECTED justices and to only term limits of 10yrs, just four year more than the Senate has now. Even Madison was skeptical but John Jay, the first Chief Justice talked him into it. They have now been choosing and picking what word to add and they NEVER were supposed to comment on social issues. Which is he very reason the founders got rid of Tory’s and the Whigs he found what he calls the “Spirit of Faction.”

  43. Since when did our Constitution become useless and the Supreme Court become all powerful? When we have a Society that is more wrapped up in their Selfies and/or which team will win the National Football title or who will win the Golf Classic, perhaps we should shift our priorities?
    All Americans need to be present in mind and body to defend our liberties! Where is your mind today?

    • My mind today? Soaking in fluoride and on BASEBALL the only real sport besides politics. 162 games(football 16 pussy games) x 26 teams x 150 pitches per game + spring 30 games x 26 + post season 36 games + winter ball + 4 levels of minor league games (135 each), college, high school, little league. What moron would miss a pitch? Hell, I quit $125,000 a year job because they wanted me on their crazy schedule rather than the Reds’. A night game in Cincinnati starts on the radio at 3pm and ends at midnight 192 days per year. Schools in a 200 mile radius close for Opening Day and any post season home game … who would go to school? Priorities GF, priorities. America first, baseball is America, is a liberty and liberation. Politics CBS/ABC/C-SPAN 7-9AM 5 DAYS; NOON-‘DEMOCRACY NOW!’; Midnight-PBS NEWS; FRIDAY PM – ‘WASHINGTON WEEK’, ‘REAL TIME’, ‘VICE’ SUNDAY AM-FOX, ABC, NBC; SUNDAYPM- ‘THIS WEEK TONIGHT’. Who has time for a job? You can’t say I’m not engaged or dedicated.

      • Hey, I don’t blame you. Who wants to think about the condition of our country as its Freedom slowly slips away? I’d rather get involved in many other interests that are challenging and more fun!

        You remind me of my Dad who could recite all the numbers of Baseball, who never ever missed a game and knew all the players by sight. His reason for living was BASEBALL! But that was another time and a different Society then.

        I often wish our kids could experience a simpler time of baseball games and hot dogs instead of muslim massacres of innocents in our Nation or adult men being allowed to use the same restrooms as small innocent girls just because those men “think” they’d rather be a female.

        Our world is upside down and no matter how hard you immerse yourself in a Sport, it will raise its ugly head and swat you or your loved ones. At this point, we either get educated as to what and who is doing the damage and fix it OR we throw in the towel and just don’t “Give a damn”.

        I’m for educating people so they can make better choices for their lives. What you do lies on your shoulders if the SHTF…just sayin.

        • I’m with ya, I needed a baseball rant and just sayin’ its possible to be awake and baseball ‘fanaddict’ at the same time. You’re right I’m a throwback to a time when a whole neighborhood, fathers, sons, grandfathers, families would be on their porches with a radio everyday; when something happened you could literally hear the neighborhood cheer, together, as one. I’m still on the porch but the neighborhood is not. Baseball has marked the passing of our history, helped us be our best and healed the nation when needed. The neighbor boy asked me one day are they playing two days in a row? I had to fight back the tears, where did America go?

          • Technology stole our country and the world and took away our simple pleasures of just being together to share a game. Now kids want to just play Game Boys instead of actually playing sports or following sports.

            Each of us can make a difference by talking to our grandkids, exposing them to the fun of yesteryear, urging them to try the “old ideas” instead of always playing with the latest technology. If we do that enough, a trend might begin and kids will “want” to enjoy the simpler things of life once in a while. It’s a beginning..

        • Transgender citizens have fought wars, healed the sick, taught our children and used public restrooms since the first public restroom. This was not an issue until a spin meister got hold of it, where has America gone?

  44. I noticed alot of hateful remarks on this comment community ! If your put down for spelling our Muslim presidents name it’s really BERRY.any way very good article.

  45. Barry Wendell Jackson, Esq.

    In law school, students learn that the U.S. Constitution is not in the words you read, but in the words of the Supreme Court. Under the Constitution as written, the six states that had established religions were protected from Congressional interference by the clause in the First Amendment that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” While the states’ establishments had been disestablished by 1850, the right of the states to prefer religions continued until after World War II!
    But then the Supreme Court decided that the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment incorporated Thomas Jefferson’s erroneous view that the Constitution created a Wall between Church and State. And therefore, that view became part of the Constitution. Everson vs. Board of Education, 1947, 330 U.S. 1.
    I object! (I am a Antidisestablishmentarian [said to be the longest word in the English Language], and I expect to be so long as I live.)

  46. Nine robes completely unlike what the founding fathers envisioned.

  47. Have been saying much the same for at least 50 + years! 5-4 decision here, 5-4 decision there? Is the very document that this country is founded on so difficult to “interpret” that these nine magpies in robes have such difficulty agreeing on how some law applies?

    Two grievous instances whereby these ‘ideologues’ “legislated from the bench,’ are the recent health care law, a.k.a. Obama care, and that infamous 1973 Roe v/s Wade decision! With all their split-decisons, these people have absolutely proven that there are precious few true Constitutionalists residing in that ‘third’ power branch of government!

  48. Who is paying the premiums for the 94 million American citizens who are now
    out of the work force? If you have no income, you will have no medical coverage 94 million Americans on Medicaid will bankrupt a majority of State Goverments in the United States. Getting rid of Obamacare is the best solution for all of us..

  49. There are only two real decent man on the Supreme Court and that’s Alito and Clarence Thomas, the restaurant nothing but whores of the money and communist like Ginsberg yo bitch I want to be home in a rocking chair

  50. I have no respect for the supreme court or any gov branch these day’s, it’s fallen to the marxists , I’m just waiting now for the revolution.

    • Poor Mindy. When judges disagree with some bent personal view and do what’s right you choose disrespect, what a baby, do you still throw tantrums ?

      • This isn’t about disagreeing with me, it’s about the constitution , it’s about law and those who violate it are dangerous. I am sorry that you are blind to truth, care not for morals and for freedom. I pity you and the generations that will follow you. You are actively engaged in the destruction of this nation and freedom.

        • The constitution is not a narrow document, if it is it needs a page one rewrite . If the constitution is used to deny any peoples rights of human nature then it is a bogus fascist document . Right comes before 300 year old words of our immigrant terrorist ancestors . The right; tea bags, neo Nazi and Nazis have destroyed the Republican party and stand to destroy the country and freedoms through hate, bigotry, racism and denial of personal rights. Government has no ability to, nor right to legislate morals. I pity you and your judgmental, self righteous view . https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1d37ef4a39a641ef699da409a316221de38efa6014b6bd8812e10fd68e691d28.jpg

  51. I don’t elevate them. They ceased earning accolades quite some time back. I liked Newt’s thoughts when he ran for president. I coined a phrase: SCROTUS (Scrotum Court Repudiating Our United States). Trite but meaningful to me.

    I always believed the Congress could review a Supreme Court decision i.e. taking prayer out of school, and reverse it. Why don’t they do some of that. That would help resolve the politicization of the Supremes.

  53. Laws are black and white. Gray areas are the fabrication of lawyers to confuse and defuse implementation and enforcement of laws. An action is either right or wrong. It can’t be both. Lawyers are loyal to fees. Truth may or may not be associated with justice. Judges are lawyers and protect their buddies with rulings that keep the fees coming in. Trust a lawyer? Used car salesmen are more honest.

    • You never drive over the posted speed limit? You never turn right into the left hand lane or vice versa? Laws, shaded with gray, laws broken everyday by disrespectful, mindless people .

  54. The Supreme Court is Illegally Skewed homosexual. It is an Unduly Constituted Criminal Court. How is it possible to have at least 3, perhaps more, homosexual justices, when only 3% of the population (according to the Census Bureau) is homosexual. Why is the Court disproportionately skewed homosexual? Homosexuals are designated Immoral. People of Immoral character are not allowed to swear oath, let alone hold office. We should demand their immediate resignations and strike the decisions that they have Illegally rendered. Overturn the Fantasy Nonsense they’ve promoted and restore sanity, reality and Rule of Moral Law.
    Why haven’t our Senators and Representatives challenged these wrongful appointments? If they are all in it together or if they are just so inept; then We the People, should purge them from Our System, get rid of them by Executing the One Term Corruption Solution: “Vote Incumbents OUT!” Thank You.

  55. ALL three branches have been co-opted against their masters – We the people.

  56. Watching Fascist National Convention video, “Comeback” a roll call of fascist governors…all white guys two white women .

  57. the court was not created to make law, it was created solely to make sure laws were followed without bias or preference to any group or person….this court has forced its biased interpertation of law on all of us which in itself is unconstitutional.!

  58. REVOLUTION will be the SOLUTION – guaranteed! We are no longer a nation ruled by law but rather by a “Dick-taker-N-Thief” and his band of merry homo and lezbo commie minions that will not cede their ABSOLUTE POWER that they have acquired by hook and crook, this is the straight skinny, like it or not! Armr=====================================?, you will be needing them! mInr, NSA!

  59. The powers that be will take/abuse every power we let them, it is up to us to keep the power they wield at a minimum. The ‘people’ need to get pissed off and end the power grabbing, with whatever means necessary. I don’t see anyone else stepping up to do it…
