Let’s play a Supreme Court game…

We are watching the Supreme Court Nomination Process for Neil Gorsuch, a judge many consider to be a ‘strict Constitutionalist’*, to fill the vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia.

The Socialist party of America and it’s army of the useful are now adopting the position that the seat was “Stolen” from them as the vacancy occurred roughly a year ago and within the Obama Presidency, Their reasoning is there was ample time to conduct a hearing and possibly swear in a Justice on President Obama’s watch. President Obama even went as far as nominating Merrick Garland, possibly the most ‘conservative’ nominee the Left has offered ever. All of this theater was promoted to the useful masses as ‘deserved’ even though Supreme Court appointments have not happened within a year of a Presidential Election in over 80-years.

While we listen to the Left howl at the injustice… think about this;

What if, after the inevitable confirmation of soon to be Justice Gorsuch, Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg buys the farm? (Literally or Figuratively… I mean, who doesn’t want a farm?)

Now suppose President Trump nominates… wait for it…

Merrick Garland?

It would be rich.

Trump would appropriately position the nomination as a compromise, even a nod… giving the Progressive Leftists want they wanted in the first place.  (If you close your eyes you can hear the choking sound…)

Now let’s go a step further and entertain another vacancy available to President Trump. Suppose another Justice retires, or buys a farm next to Ginsberg.

After such a Magnanimous gesture by President Trump to the horrid Democrat
Socialists with the nomination of ‘their guy’ Merrick Garland… he nominates another ‘strict Constitutionalist’ and demands their confirmation.

Ha!

The Art of the Deal.

A Trap for Fools, or rather The Aristocracy.

Since I’m drunk… suppose he gets another term and yet another vacancy… and does it again?

I think the Liberal Socialists would finally, collectively, Jump against Trump.

 

*’strict Constitutionalist’ is being used to identify those judges who believe the Constitution as written is the basis for our legal system.  I personally don’t understand how there can acceptably be any other kind… I’m clearly biased against pillars of judicial brilliance such as Russia, China, Venezuela, Fiji and the Philippines, etc. etc.


The John Roberts Dart Board

Without a doubt there is a fine Hog Bristle Dart Board bearing Chief Justice John Robert’s Face hung in the West Wing.

We discussed this a couple of years ago immediately following Robert’s deciding vote forcing the ACA to be considered a Tax if the Liberals were to move Forward! in enforcing it.

ref:  The Benevolent Arsonist

To refresh, the Democrats had tried arguing that Obama Care (Affordable Care Act) was both a tax and Constitutional under the Commerce Clause.  It was an attempt to be too clever by half.  It was crafted to put the judges in a position that the Act was Constitutional under one scenario and not the other… A Hobson’s Choice of sorts with Approval being the outcome.  Or better yet, a Trap for Fools.

The Supremes didn’t do that.  What they Did do was determined that the Commerce Clause did Not empower the Leftist’s to enforce the ACA.

So… it’s ASSUMED to be legal as a Tax… but no decision was offered regarding the Constitutionality of the ACA being a Tax.

Here we are today.

The Administration is faced with having to delay, delay, delay.

Why?

Because the moment someone is taxed under the provisions of Obama Care they have been Harmed!  Harmed!

And when you’re Harmed, you can file suit.

Once the suits are filed they will be on their way to the Supreme Court for the Decision that was not addressed previously.  Is Obama Care Constitutional as a Tax?

The Administration knows it is Not.  We know it is Not.  Everybody knows it is Not… but you’ll still hear devote Progressives Profess it is.

Thus the only tactic the Liberals have is to continue trying to delay the mandates and penalties (taxes) associated with the destruction of the finest Health Care System in the World by this Leftist Scheme known as Obama Care.

I suspect the John Roberts Dart Board is FULL of Darts… and all other sorts of sharp thingies.
