Chief Justice Roberts, The Benevolent Arsonist.

Roberts has poured gas on the fire.  Intentionally.

This Obama Care ruling with Chief Justice Roberts at the center of it seems to me to be a blessing in disguise.

Let’s look at this in the simplest terms… which is the best way for me as I’m drunk most of the time.

1. The number one tactic on the Left to find legitimacy within the constitution for their schemes is removed.  The Commerce Clause has been and to this point was yet again offered up as authority for Leftists to force. Force anything they wanted… and they were hoping for a victory on Obamacare based on the “authority” of the Commerce Clause thus opening the door to making you do anything they wanted.  This use of the Commerce Clause has been emasculated.
They lost this now and for the future.  Justice Ginsburg is not happy about this…

2. Roberts opinion put’s Obama Care in the category of a tax. Nobody has yet been “harmed” by the tax as it has not kicked in yet. (It is my opinion that Roberts and many of us knew the Left, if losing the case, was going to repackage Socialized Medicine as a tax – just like Medicare – and push it that way. This would buy them another four years of legal wrangling all the while continuing to build their health care bureaucracy in the background where nobody see’s it. Yes, kind of like Iran and their nuclear program. The Socialists and the Theocrats are very similar in most ways.)

But now that it is a tax… and declared as such by all parties… the second it kicks in and “harms” somebody, the suits will start flying. Only this new challenge will have happened much faster than the Liberals would have wanted. Remember, like any good drug dealer you don’t have a solid customer until their hooked, which takes a little time, and that’s what the Liberals have openly stated.

3. Since it is a tax… it lands squarely back into the hands of Congress and our duly elected representatives who are up for election in 120 days more or less.  Hmmm…

4.  The court has reinforced the states right to not participate.  The court has reinforced the ability for the states not to proceed with the Medicaid expansion without retribution.  The Left does not like this either…  Socialism has no room for State’s rights and the 10th Amendment.

I think Roberts knew exactly what he was doing in the name limited government contrary to popular belief. But I seem to run contrary at times.

It appears to me that he has pushed this to a fight.  He has accelerated what he knew would otherwise be a long drawn out exercise to the benefit of the Socialized Medicine crowd.  He has also opened a multi-front war on this program combined with the right amount of governing philosophy required to report on it.  Who knows, may be the American people will learn something over the next few years.  May be not.

I will always stand tall to be corrected…  we’ll see.

None of you will remember what I’ve stated here in two years anyway.

This is not about President Barack Obama.

All of this is about President Hillary Clinton.

While all of the scandals are a game changer…

Don’t fool yourself. The Press is not going to suddenly stop being Socialist and embrace an ideology of Free-Markets, Liberty, Freedom and Personal Responsibility.

What is going on here is the Hillary 2016 Campaign getting a head start.

The way the Press looks at it is, if Obama falls out of favor in the eyes of the American people then all the better. This allows Hillary to run in contrast. It allows her to be the “Good” Liberal… the only one who can truly bring “Change” to government.

Nobody… nobody… nobody is going to Impeach Barack Obama.  It will not happen.  Ever.

What is going to happen now, however, is the Hillary protection effort.

That’s it.

Obama is being cast, intentionally, as “disengaged” and “uninterested”.  These are not criminal actions.  While he is “responsible”, he is not culpable… he’s just tired, and finished trying to bring change to terrible, terrible Washington.

This will be the limit of protection the Press will afford Obama. They know he is done. They know he has entered his lame duck status and there is no juice left to push his agenda Forward.

The only person the Press cares to shelter now is Hillary.

Damage control in underway.  The Media knows they have lost the Mid-Term Elections at this point.  2014 is over.  They just need to get through the next number of months without any provable Progressive criminality presenting itself and the preservation of the Socialist gains they have made over the last 6 years.

Let’s watch… shall we?
