How far are we going to allow President Barack Hussein Obama and his acolytes to hate our Constitution and Christians? Check out what Justin Smith has to say about it.

While America’s political “elite” have squandered most of the opportunities over the past twenty years left for them by President Ronald Reagan and the annihilation of the Evil Empire, Barrack Hussein Obama has managed three times the spending of all the combined presidents, and he has led us to a $16 trillion national debt, annual deficits well over a trillion dollars and no budget during his regime’s rule; Obama states, “that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges; that preserving our individual freedoms requires collective action,” which indicates that Obama will pursue more policies destructive to Our American Heritage. His vision for the next four years will push America farther from common sense Constitutional governance and the basics, family, faith/Judeo-Christian (tolerant of all others) and flag/national sovereignty. His aides have suggested Obama will have to redirect American policy from the Oval Office, which is not shocking given his disdain for the U.S. Constitution, his affinity towards authoritarianism and his propensity for uttering unConstitutional executive orders!
John Jay stated in 1785, “I consider knowledge to be the soul of the republic, and as the weak and wicked are generally in alliance, as much care should be taken to diminish the number of the former as of the latter. Education is the way to do this.”
On January 25, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled against another one of Obama’s numerous unConstitutional orders in relation to the Senate confirmation process and recess appointments. Three Obama appointments were nullified by this ruling, and 300 Labor Board decisions are now in question, and yet, in typical illegal, elitist, liberal fashion, Mark Pearce, the NLRB’s chairman, defiantly refused to obey this court’s decision; until Obama, never… NEVER in U.S. history has ANY U.S. President attempted to declare the U.S. Senate in recess, while it was still technically in session, solely on his own presumed authority!
During his 2013 inaugural address, as Obama stated, “We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations,” he had already betrayed America’s children by adopting and implementing a UN Agenda 21 education curriculum called “Common Core/CSCOPE” and forcing all but five states to accept it through Stimulus bribes and threats to withhold federal funds and Title 190 programs for the poor and needy. CSCOPE is basically collectivist/communist indoctrination, which makes drastic cuts to classical literature and higher math programs, as it promotes Islam through teaching conversion methods and presenting verses from the Koran that denigrate other faiths: in Lesson 2, Unit 3, students are told Christianity is a “cult.” Also, CSCOPE has ties to Obama mentor and self-acknowledged terror group member Bill Ayers.
The science on “global warming” has long been dispelled as an outright lie driven by transnationalists’ and communists’ desire to “redistribute the wealth” worldwide to poor Third World nations through legislation such as “Cap and Trade.” This type of legislation has already been rejected by our U.S. Congress, however, Obama ignored Congress in 2009 and enacted nearly all of the UN’s Agenda 21 and “climate change and sustainable development initiatives” through, as of now, an unchallenged and unConstitutional Executive Order 13575, as well as EPA regulations. The changes increase energy costs, kill jobs, leave the U.S. less competitive globally and reduce us all to poverty!
Obama states, “We are true to our creed when a little girl born into the bleakest poverty knows that she has the same chance to succeed as anybody else, because she is an American, she is free and she is equal, not just in the eyes of God but also in our own.” As noted by many past and reformed socialists such as David Horowitz, those nations which have put Liberty ahead of Equality have ended up doing better by Equality than those with the reverse priority, and even so, I dare say that the little girl described by Obama has had more than ample chances thanks to President Lyndon Johnson’s Economic Opportunity Act of 1964.
A highly respected economist, Thomas Sowell explains that penury in the U.S. is neither irremediable or hereditary, and only 3% get stuck in the bottom fifth of income distribution for more than eight years. The top or bottom earners are not closed private clubs that contain the same households every year. Many of today’s poor may be tomorrow’s wealthy, and the reverse is also true. But it will not hold true once Obama policies are fully implemented between now and 2017; for now, no such economic mobility can be found anywhere else in the world.
Obama hinted at a Republican agenda which would block important programs that would put millions of jobless Americans back to work as he stated, “we cannot mistake absolutism for principle”… this coming from the most corrupt and unprincipled U.S. President in history, who spent only about 6% of the Stimulus money on actual jobs programs, with the rest acting as a pay-off to his political cronies; it is this administration and Obama’s Leftist-Democrats who are killing jobs creation, because they advocate for immigration and economic policies designed to strengthen their hold on power through the continued destruction of the U.S. economy in order to place more Americans on the dole!
The American free-market and democratic republic is far from perfect, however, our complex of traditions and institutions, built upon principles that animated the American Revolution, have made it possible for more Freedom and Prosperity to be enjoyed by more citizens than in any other society in human history. The relatively little that was wrong with our system, before circa Obama, needed only to be reformed. A fundamental transformation was not called for by the people and neither has there been a large hue and cry from the people demanding communism, fascism and authoritarianism. But Obama is driven by ideology and ideology alone… by contempt and contempt alone for Our American Heritage!
I believe in the rule of law, but how far are we as a nation… those of us who still believe in the U.S. Constitution… supposed to go with an intransigent and divisive U.S. President who is not only attempting to transform our way of life but is destroying over 300 years of cultural and historical American Heritage? At what point will each of us be willing to put our lives at risk, say “ENOUGH” and pick up our rifles to march against an out of control government in order to preserve real Liberty, Freedom and Equality for future generations, just as the Founders did?
America will soon be embroiled in a massive political battle, fraught with ensuing upheaval and societal unrest, if this authoritarian Statist trend is not abated. Obama and the Leftist-Democrats have chosen to destroy the system as it now exists, and, as they seek to give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, abrogate our right to make end-of-life decisions, and spend away our children’s and several generations’ future, they command us as subjects of the State rather than govern us as citizens of a democratic Free Republic; and in the process, they are paving the way for those like them, each new successive Democratic president, to rule by decree and according to their own personal whims, rather than have to adhere to the principles and guidelines contained within the U.S. Constitution. They are paving the way for tyranny, because they want to, and they believe in doing so… we must drag America away from the abyss before Obama drags Her over the edge!
“We are a nation that has a government… not the other way around. And this makes us special among nations of the earth. Our government has no power except that granted it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.” -President Ronald Reagan from the 1980 Inaugural Address.

I am sure I’ll be posting more on the Supreme Court’s astounding decision to uphold the individual mandates of Obamacare later. Until then the best Conservative viewpoint I have found in the early hours of the decision is on The Blaze.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Chief Justice Roberts usually considered an Original Intent Constitutional Justice voted with the Leftist Justices to uphold the 5-4 decision!
Supreme Court: ‘Obamacare’ Constitutional
June 28, 2012 at 10:16am
The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that President Obama’s landmark healthcare bill, including the controversial “individual mandate,” is constitutional by a 5-4 majority.
“The Court holds that the mandate violates the Commerce Clause, but that doesn’t matter [because] there are five votes for the mandate to be constitutional under the taxing power,” SCOTUS Blog reports. “The bottom line: the entire ACA [Affordable Care Act] is upheld, with the exception that the federal government‘s power to terminate states’ Medicaid funds is narrowly read.”
The court’s decision comes as a major defeat to those who have fought against the healthcare overhaul since before President Obama signed it into law in 2010. U.S. citizens are still legally required to purchase insurance via the federal government and the bill’s expansion of Medicaid, although now limited, still stands. This means roughly 30 million uninsured low-income Americans are still eligible for coverage through the bill’s expansion of the state-run entitlement program.
However, if it’s any consolation, the court also ruled that the Commerce Clause does not give the government the authority to compel Americans to purchase a product. So at least there‘s there’s that, right?
“I am disappointed with today’s Supreme Court decision because the Court has cleared the way for what looks like a very broad use of the tax power. But we can still be very thankful that the court has defended the contours of the Commerce Clause,” said Carrie Severino, chief counsel, Judicial Crisis Network.
Chief Justice Roberts was joined by Justices Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, and Sonia Sotomayor in upholding the mandate.
“Members of this Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments,” Roberts writes in his opinion (page six).
“Those decisions are entrusted to our Nation’s elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices [emphasis added],” he adds.
Needless to say, Chief Justice Roberts’ opinion has shocked many people.
“Wow. So Kennedy voted with conservatives, Roberts with liberals. Umpire, indeed,” the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein tweeted.
In his dissent, Justice Kennedy said “In our view, the entire Act before us is invalid in its entirety.”
After hearing oral arguments on the constitutionality of the bill in March, the Supreme Court Justices focused on these four points:
1) Whether the “individual” mandate is constitutional
2) Whether SCOTUS has the authority to rule on a tax law even though it hasn’t come into effect
3) If the individual mandate is overturned, will it be cut from the rest of the law as a separate entity or will other provisions fall with it?
4) Whether the law’s Medicaid expansion is constitutional
Of the four points discussed, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that, as a tax, the individual mandate is constitutional. Under the Commerce Clause, it doesn’t work, but as a tax, it’s legitimate.
It doesn’t seem that way now.
Chief Justice Roberts, whose vote saved “Obamacare,” announced the court’s decision at 10:07 EST.
