Obama To Overrule Supreme Court? President Considers "Mitigating" Obamacare Ruling

Tyler Durden's picture

Having had his omnipotence chipped away at last week, President Obama has - seemingly - been pushed too far by the Supreme Court's decision on contraception and Obamacare this morning: The White House stated...

  • SUPREME COURT DECISION ON CONTRACEPTION COVERAGE JEOPARDIZES HEALTH OF WOMEN EMPLOYED BY THESE COMPANIES
  • WILL WORK WITH CONGRESS TO MAKE SURE WOMEN AFFECTED BY RULING WILL HAVE SAME ACCESS TO CONTRACEPTION
  • WILL CONSIDER WHETHER PRESIDENT CAN ACT ON HIS OWN TO MITIGATE EFFECT OF SUPREME COURT RULING

Totalitarian? You decide... One wonders if the phrase "do you know who I am?" was uttered this morning?

 

As The Hill adds,

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said women should be able to "make personal health decisions for themselves,” and called contraception "vital" to the health and well-being of women.

 

...

 

"We will, of course, respect the Supreme Court ruling,” he added.

 

...

 

Republicans cheered the ruling as a victory for religious freedom.

 

The decision affirms that Americans, contrary to what the Obama administration attempted to impose, have a right to live and work in accordance to their conscience and can’t be forced to surrender their religious freedom once they open a business,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said in a statement.

How so far, has Obama escaped an unpleasant encounter with a person with a first, middle and last name?

he's just going to make it into another handout, outside of employer provided insurance.

WTF?

 

Why is this even possible?   

 

Oh yeah, I forgot they took away all our rights.  That's why it's possible.

 

And quess why you can't protest this anymore without becoming a terrorist..........  that's right, it's because you don't have any rights anymore.

 

And guess who gave them this power?

 

You did!

I would say impeach the bag of shit, but he should have been arrested long ago.

As long as the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights remain active documents underpinning the Supreme Court (and frankly even this is debatable now) all lof this should be able to be corrected or righted, and set back to the foundation that the US was built on.

 

Sadly, most americans are so uninformed as to what their rights actually are they don't even question what's happening to them.

Valerie Jarrett (Sitting at the President’s desk): Sir the Supreme Court has that authority. They are the interpretation mechanism fitting our laws against the Constitution.

Obama (Stomping his feet and holding his breath – then he exhales): But I do want them to call my laws unconstitutional! (He stomps more) What if I just say the Court is unconstitutional! (A foot lands for emphasis with each word.)

I’ll get Jay Zee and Beyonce to do a television spot with me, and then go on Oprah to announce we are disbanding the court!

Jarrett: Um… that is not within your power sir.

Obama: Then I’m gonna hold my breath until it is Valerie! You had better figure it out!

Jarrett: Calm down Mr. President.

Obama stares at her with his cheeks full of air. He stomps and begins changing color due to a lack of oxygen.

Jarrett: Mr. President it is similar to a baseball game. You are the pitcher and the court is the umpire. You can’t just send the umpire home because you don’t like his call.

Obama falls to ground and writhes as he holds his breath. He begins slapping his hands on the floor.

Jarrett: Mr. President get up right now or I’m going to call Michelle to come discipline you.

Obama (Exhales and lays still on the floor): You’re so mean to me! (Then he begins to cry.)

What’s all the uproar?

The corporation called THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA operates under a schema of decrees in all of their conceivable legal fields. Moreover, the Constitution is merely a referential document with no validity whatsoever as a result of the Act of 1871, and considering the fact that this corporation never signed a peace treaty with the Confederate states at the end of the American Civil War (being the latter an implicit ally of the British Monarchy for receiving  advisory and financial support, just  for destabilization purposes only); therefore, the US Supreme Court is just an institution playing a trivial role in the affairs of the Federal Government.

TITLE 50 OF THE UNITED STATES CODE (WAR AND NATIONAL DEFENSE) grants all the necessary powers to the Sovereign (the Executive branch) to overrule any laws and/or opinions issued either by Congress or the Supreme Court – decorative figures in reality.

Anything contrary to this reality is pure whining.

The "Act of 1871?" Methinks you are full of shit. Surely you can find a posse comitatus site somewhere.

Just more white man's ghost dancing.

Yes, the Constitution was a coup de tat ... but you aren't going to get rid of it by throwing convoluted common law legal arguments at federal judges. They will just laugh, tell him that was very clever, and over rule the objection.

If you want to get rid of the Constitution, you have to do it the hard way, using men with guns.

The same way Obama is doing it.

You and the Commie-in Chief just argued that a halal deli in Dearborn has to serve ham sandwiches if the government so dictates.

Obammy is going to suggest that all guys wear Obammy masks.  This way, girls will want to practice abstinence and pills won't be needed.

 

Bemused Observer's picture

Yes. And do it each and every election for several cycles, break the fever.

Pull the rug out regularly so bribery (lobbying) loses its payoff. One term is not enough for these guys to get most things done, so a bunch of one-termers of different parties for several election cycles would dry up the money-stream real quick.

Dont take your eye off of what is happening here. I hate Obamacare as much as the next sane non-sociopathic person, but this wasnt a hit against Obama so much as it was a hit against our freedoms. As usual when TPTB pretend to bicker it is mom and pop who suffer (in this case mom especially). The Suprene Court chose to shoot this down because women are the least able to defend themselves. Why not strike down the provisions of Obamacare that basically says 'give tax dollars directly to a private entity'? The answer, of course, is that said private entity has money, does lobby, and can defend itself. Celebrate the battle won today, but dont for a second forget that we are losing the war.

Okay then I guess I am a racist because I really do not believe he has the authority to mitigate the Supreme Court even though he is the first black president.

7.62x54r's picture

Any deviation from Marxism is racist.

Therefor the few black republicans out there are all racists as well, and it is OK for Daily Kos-kiddies to throw Oreos at them when they speak.

I guess I am a racist too because I acknowledge that he is a sack of shit and you know what color shit is.

"...women are the least able to defend themselves."

Never been in divorce court, have you? Or noticed that all "definitions" of violence seem to specifically exclude social, emotional, or psychological coercion?

Women rarely need to defend themselves. They have an army of laws and special interests to do it for them.

Brilliant!

I would like to adapt this script, but change out Obama for Lois Leaner, The Supreme Court for Senator Grassley (R-IOWA). Vallery Jarret will be played by former white house lawyer Kathy Ruemmer.

She played the role of Jarret identically as you described this Sunday on General Electric's "Meet the press" 30 minutes or so in depending on what feed you can get.

I look forward to corporations insisting it's their right to run things according to sharia law lol. Oh no wait. Supreme court kept this one exclusive to 'specific' religious practices, more lolz. 

People on this site need to just come out and say it, you don't care two shits about small .gov or freedom, alls yeah want is a white Christian version of saudi arabia. Saudi America ftw!!

SumTing Wong's picture

Yes, this dumbass is back.

And please, if you want Sharia law in your company, feel free to impose it so long as it doesn't interfere with the Constitution of the U.S. I can choose not to work in your company, and I will also choose not to do business with your company. I've made it this long without an iPhone, so I can probably survive without whatever the fuck you are making.

Let me be clear: I want Govco to leave people to do what they want to do. If Hobby Lobby doesn't want to offer health benefits of any sort, they should find people for whom this is not a problem. Those people can work for them. 

Yes, I know James_Cole is a troll. I just can't leave stupidity alone...

James_Cole's picture

And please, if you want Sharia law in your company, feel free to impose it so long as it doesn't interfere with the Constitution of the U.S.

Apparently you missed the ruling, it has set SCOTUS as a type of arbiter of acceptable religious practice - not particularly constitutional. How this is different than many fundamentalist muslim countries shall remain a mystery.

There already are many American corporations that offer Sharia compliant services, most of them in the Financial Sector.

Your post here doesn't make a lick of sense. The Court held that a Clinton-era law applies to the ACA's requirement as to employers being required to offer plans that offer {"free"} contraception.

Do you even understand the very basics of the case and what was at issue, or did you skim an article at HuffPo, and amble over here, sniffing and clutching at your tear-soaked blouse?

He's a libtard troll. Expecting him to use logic or make sense is just mean of you.

As I clutch my tear-soaked blouse please explain:

“Our decision should not be understood to hold that an insurance- coverage mandate must necessarily fall if it conflicts with an employer’s religious beliefs,” added Alito.

You are certifiable crazy. I don't know what world you live in. The Christians in you name it country bend over backwards to accommodate nearly every religion and practically every specific social agenda in the desired hope of getting along with everyone. In Nigeria that gets them killed by Islamists and has their churches set on fire.

Bemused Observer's picture

He brings up a good point. What if a corporation's religious objections were say, Islamic in nature?

As long as the 17th amendment is still active, America will continue to be a Demobcracy instead of a Republic. Only after nullifying the 17th will America be able to return to what it was built on.

ATM's picture

No shit. The 17th destroyed the states representation in the Federal government. No voice, no power.

Thought Processor's picture

The 17th might just be number one on a long list of things that need to be corrected.

 

Unfortunately there's a lot of competition for the #1 spot, though most have to do with the US Court system subverting the constitution via conflicting laws. 

 

And then of course there is the Intelligence and National Security arm within the Federal Gov. that has little or no oversight at all, and which wields power over all other US Governmental departments.

 

Much work to be done.
