I’m no lawyer, but I don’t need to be to tell you what is coming in the near future. Predicting the events of the near future is easy: all you have to do is read history to see and understand what is happening now. That will also tell you what is about to happen next. The truly hard part is accepting the reality that America is dead and the world is entering the early stages of a long, dark, evil period in the history of man – a period there is little chance mankind will ever escape unless we stand and fight now.
The Supreme Court ruled that the mandate is unconstitutional because it exceeds the scope of the Commerce Clause. The Court then upheld the whole law by saying the mandate is actually a tax and that the Constitution does grant the power to tax a non-action. So let’s examine the truht of these two ‘findings’ before we look at the implications.
First, as it is written, the mandate was not a tax and the Obama Administration agreed in oral arguments before the SCOTUS that the mandate was not a tax:
Flashback Video: ‘Absolutely Reject That’ — Obama, HHS Sec., & Budget Director All Say Mandate Not A Tax
In the Blaze’s short research we have uncovered three high profile, on-the-record declarations from the Administration strongly repudiating the notion of the Individual Mandate as a tax.
1. The White House Budget Director, Jeffrey Zients: “No.”
2. Health & Human Services Secretary Sebelius: “[The IndividualMandate] is not per-say a tax.”
3. The President: “I absolutely reject that notion [mandate is a tax].”
Simple put, this means the SCOTUS just legislated from the bench. SCOTUS has no constitutional authority to do this. To me, this would constitute a rogue act, which would then fall under bad behavior. If you will read the constiutution, this actually opens the door for Congress to remove the judges who voted to uphold Obamacare. If you do not believe me, instead of acting like the north end of a southbound Democrat, read the Constitution: specifically the section that specifies the term of a Supreme Court Justice. Implicit in the text of that section is the ability to impeach, which was a matter of common practice at the time and why it was not specifically spelled out in the constitution: because the founders never expected the people of this nation to become “rock stupid.” (they sure got that one wrong).
So now the SCOTUS says that the Constitution gives Congress the authority to tax something that is not happening. The power to tax the individual is found in the 16th Amendment. Have you read it lately? Here, let me help you:
Passed by Congress July 2, 1909. Ratified February 3, 1913.
Note: Article I, section 9, of the Constitution was modified by the Sixteenth Amendment.
The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.
Now, unless I have forgotten how to read – or, more likely, I missed the latest Progressive bastardization of the English language – there is absolutely no language in that Amendment about taxing something that has not happened or you are not doing. So, this time SCOTUS hasn’t made law, it has actually Amended the Constitution by decree – which takes me right back to that bad behavior thing.
Now, let’s look at what this means. The federal govt. now has the authority to tax anything you are NOT doing:
You are NOT buying a Chevy Volt — A TAX ON YOU!
You are NOT exercising — A TAX ON YOU!
You are NOT losing the weight Michelle says you must — A TAX ON YOU!
You are NOT using ‘green energy’ — A TAX ON YOU!
You have NOT gone ‘vegan’ — A TAX ON YOU!
You are NOT voting Democrat — A TAX ON YOU!
You think I am exaggerating? Well, those of us who believed we were still living in the land of the free and home of the brave were wrong, too.
I want to tell you where all of this is coming from: CASS SUNSTEIN! You know, he is the “Regulatory Czar” that Glenn Beck tried to warn you about, but instead of listening, you followed your Alinsky conditioning and laughed at the ‘drunk comedian.’ Well whose laughing now?
Sunstein wrote a book in which he explained exactly how your world is about to work. You might want to get a copy and give it a read because it will tell you how this nation is going to work from now on:
In this “innocent” book, Cass explains how the government will not “tell you” what you can and can’t do, it will just make it VERY expensive if you do not do as they want. For the idiots out there, this let’s Cass claim he is not forcing anyone to do anything. These people believe whatever the Left sells them. they are pathetic, but they form the power base for the Left. They are the thieves who cloak their greed and demand the government take your money and give it to them in the name of “charity” and “social justice.” In return, the Tyrants who control or government get to use the political power these greedy thieves provide them to enslave the rest of us.
THAT is what this ruling means to you.
