Chief Justice John Roberts refuses to grant emergency Obamacare stay

Do you remember back in June 2012 when people attempted to make excuses for Chief Justice John Roberts’ decision to uphold Obamacare by claiming his labeling of the individual mandate as a ‘tax’ was some kind of brilliant political move? Do you remember when those same people claimed the characterization of the mandate as a ‘tax’ would pave the way for lawsuits that would ultimately lead to Obamacare’s repeal?

Well, Chief Justice Roberts just blew that theory out of the water with his unilateral decision to turn away – without comment – an emergency stay request from the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons, Inc. and the Alliance for Natural Health USA.

TheBlaze reports:

[The Association of American Physicians & Surgeons, Inc. and the Alliance for Natural Health USA] asked the chief justice Friday to temporarily block the law, saying Congress had passed it incorrectly by starting it in the Senate instead of the House. Revenue-raising bills are supposed to originate in the lower chamber. They also wanted blocked doctor registration requirements they say will make it harder for independent non-Medicare physicians to treat Medicare-eligible patients.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“Remember all of the people [who called into this program] when [Roberts rewrote the law],” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And said you know, John Roberts is brilliant because what he’s done is he’s set it up as a tax. And [Obamacare] started in the Senate, not the House. And you have to have all taxes start in the House. And so, we’re going to file litigation and say, ‘They wrote it unconstitutionally!’”

When you consider Chief Justice Roberts had the opportunity to rule the law unconstitutional with the strike of his pen, that logic seemed a little naïve. And now it is clear he never intended to have the law struck down in that way.

“[He offered] no comment on it even,” Pat said of Chief Justice Roberts most recent decision. “He just said, ‘No. No, we’re not hearing that.’”

“But wait a minute. You just said it was a tax. And all taxes have to begin in the House… He changed it to a tax,” Glenn interjected. “But, now, all he’s done is just sharply defined that yes, we no longer care about the Constitution in Congress. We no longer care about it in the Administration. And the Supreme Court doesn’t care about the Constitution at all. That’s what he’s just done. You might as well just put ‘F-you’ on a piece of paper and shown it to the Constitution… Because that’s all he’s done.”

    Roberts and every other liberal should be removed from the bench for breaking their oath to uphold and defend the constitution.

  • The Blue Tail Gadfly

    Well Glenn, you yourself have helped flush the Constitution down the
    toilet by denying the natural born Citizen clause for President. Not
    only do you deny it, you attack others for wanting it enforced.

    Since
    Obama was never eligible to become POTUS, everything he signed into law
    would be null and void once impeached for that offense.

    Because
    none of the politicians are doing anything about it, only shows how
    ignorant and/or corrupt they really are. Same goes for the “media
    conservatives”, the very ones who are calling for a Constitutional
    Convention.

    Do you realize how contradictory and moronic your statement is here? The Left constantly bashes Donald Trump and the rest of the so called “birther” crowd. But when people jump off the birther train, and stop questioning Obama’s eligibility, you get mad at them for that too! It stands to reason that no matter what Glenn Beck’s or any conservative’s take is on the birther issue, you’ll find a way to criticize them. Do YOU have a stance on the birther issue? Do you have a mind of your own at all? Or are you just another liberal sheep?

    Re: “Do you realize how contradictory and moronic your statement is here?”

    No but after reading your reply, I am thinking you must like projecting yourself.

    Besides constructing straw man arguments, you make absolutely no sense.

    Definition of a Straw man:

    “a weak or imaginary argument or opponent that is set up to be easily defeated” Webster’s Dictionary

    While you are playing politics, I am interested in the Truth.

    Art. II, §1, cl. 5

    “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

    Is Obama a natural born Citizen of the United States of America or not?

    Think about it carefully before answering.

    John Roberts is not above the reach of the law. He took the same Oath of Office as common to senators, representatives and the president. Articles of Impeachment can be drawn on him and followed by trial to remove him from office. It is time to take that step.

    It sure makes you wonder what obama and his lethal administration have on all these supposed strong conservatives to “convince” them to abandon their principles. Since positively nothing has proven to be beneath obama and his White House Thugocracy, perhaps they are simply being old-fashioned and hinting that family members will begin to mysteriously disappear one at a time until they come around to seeing things the king’s way. Has worked for other infamous dictators, and we know he is utilizing the playbooks of some of history’s most ruthless and power-mad low-lifes.

    You are correct. Money does talk and Congress needs to investigate John Roberts’ bank account in the Vatican. Evidently, just after Roberts declared the ObamaCare mandate a tax, $1 billion dollars was placed into his Vatican Bank Account and the Deposit slip was from the US Treasury. Since many politicians have these accounts, perhaps it is time to audit the Fed. Here is more information:

    Slush fund accounts of major US politicians identified and seized at Vatican Bank (Rome). Connection established with Daniel Dal Bosco RICO indictment, which cites Giancarlo Bruno, Silvio Berlusconi & Ban Ki Moon. On Wednesday 5th January 2011, it emerged that US establishment-related slush fund accounts had been located in, and seized from, the Vatican Bank in Rome.

    The source of funds for these accounts in almost every instance was found to be the US Treasury. Beneficiaries of the covert Vatican accounts include Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and each of the Obama children, Michelle Obama’s mother, all the Bushes and the Clintons, including Chelsea Clinton, Joe Biden, Timothy Geithner, Janet Napolitano, several US Senators, including Mitch McConnell, several US Congressmen including John Boehner, several US Military Chiefs of Staff, the US Provost Marshal, the US Judge Advocate General, the US Supreme Court Chief Justice, John Roberts, several US Judges, the Pope, and several cardinals. Big money was found in each of the accounts.

    The longer the beneficiaries have been in office, the greater the account balances were found to be. They range from a few million USD to more than a billion USD in the case of John Roberts. The total number of slush fund accounts so far identified at the Vatican Bank is said to be between 600 and 700. This number is likely to grow as international élite corruption investigations spread worldwide.

    I know what a straw man argument is. Thank you for being concerned and assuming that I’m too dumb to know what it is. You are opposed to Glenn Beck and Conservatism at large, that is clear. OF COURSE OBAMA WASN’T BORN HERE! Of course he shouldn’t be allowed in office. You are a Leftist. I’ve read many of your posts here. But you are trying to be a lawyer here. You can’t isolate the issue of the unconstitutionality of Obamacare so you change the subject and try to play on a perceived inconsistency in Glenn’s thinking. Bottom line, Obamacare is unconstitutional. That has nothing to do with the birther issue at all which YOU brought up. Walk it back to Obamacare. It’s wrong, it’s bad, it’s counterproductive, it’s resulted in fewer people being insured and insurance rates to be higher. The opposite of those two things was what was promised. Because you are unwilling to admit to how wrong Obamacare is, you try and act clever while becoming less so. You are defending the indefensible. You are a faux intellectual.

    Glenn ‘s comments and many of these might be best if directed directly at Justice Roberts who definitely has it coming. You all know that the Supreme Court has a web site, right?

    You are correct. Roberts has always been a liberal, however, the media has tried to label him a conservative. That is why some people think of him as a conservative, that plus the fact that Bush appointed him.

  • Anonymous

    With Roberts not wanting to overthrow his and Obama’s masterpiece, he naturally turned this suit down. It looks like it will take about 20 years of conservative rule of the White House, The Senate, and the House in order to overturn ObamaCare through the Supreme Court. It will take that long to change the current set up of the court. That is why we must regain the Senate in November 2014 and regain the presidency in 2016. Most Americans are fed up with all the lies and corruption of the present makeup of the Senate, House, and the supreme court (lower case on purpose).

    Our government was based on a system of checks and balances. Why has everyone forgotten that the House has the check on the Supreme Court? The Supreme Court is not God of the Law. The People are and the House is (supposed) to be of the People (which is why the Senate should not be voted in Reps). So scream at your Representative/s to correct this egregious error because the claims of these groups above is completely correct. The House can overturn it if they have the smarts/guts.

    I see you didn’t think about it carefully.

    By admitting that you knew what a Straw Man Argument was and proceeded with it anyways, only shows you to be deceitful instead of merely ignorant of rational thought. Which means having a rational argument with you is out the window.

    Oh well, while I am here I might as well finish dissecting this drivel in which you feel so compelled to write.

    Re: “OF COURSE OBAMA WASN’T BORN HERE!”

    I have heard those rumors but they are currently unverified, so that is your statement and not mine.

    What is known is Barack Obama Sn. (who never was a U.S. Citizen) is the declared Father of the sitting President on his birth certificate that “everyone” accepts as authentic. Therefore Obama is not a natural born Citizen and is ineligible to be POTUS (along with a myriad of other impeachable offenses).

    Interestingly enough, even though you know this, you defend Glenn Beck who bashes people who bring it up. Isn’t that what you claimed the Left did?

    Obviously this “Conservatism” of yours is based on a “Nation of Men, and not laws” philosophy, i.g. moral relativism. Talk about defending the indefensible.

    Re: “You are a Leftist. I’ve read many of your posts here.”

    You will have to define “Leftist” and provide these posts which will prove these assertions of yours. Until then, you are convincing no one and are still putting forth a Straw Man Argument.

    Re: “You can’t isolate the issue of the unconstitutionality of Obamacare so you change the subject and try to play on a perceived inconsistency in Glenn’s thinking.”

    Never claimed ObamaCare was constitutional. Another Straw Man.

    BTW, your argument against ObamaCare is really quite dreadful to read. All you have to do is simply ask where in the Constitution does it authorize ObamaCare.

    Re: “You are opposed to Glenn Beck and Conservatism at large”

    Conservatism has been redefined and no longer represents the traditional sense. Which is why I no longer call myself a conservative but an apologist for the U.S. Constitution.

    Back before the ACA was actually passed during a segment of Special Report, Brett Bair explained how they got away with this legislation getting through, even though it was originated in the Senate. There was a bill from the House that was in conference in the Senate.. I don’t remember what number or what it was about.. but after the first “whereas”, the Senate deleted all the text in that bill that originated in the House and plugged in text from the ACA as they intended for it to pass. Because the original bill originated in the House, the one that they sent back to the House to be voted on technically originated in the House. At the time, I thought that it was about as sneaky and despicable a tactic as possible..

  • Bill Durham

    Here are the details..
    Andrew Kloster, a legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese
    III Legal Center, calls the Origination Clause “an issue that is very
    difficult for courts to address.”

    “I personally don’t think that it has legs,” Kloster said of the appeal.
    “The Origination Clause is difficult to get into the courts because
    it’s an internal matter for the legislative branch. Courts have said
    they will rule on Origination Clause issues, but I think the Obamacare
    one is probably one they won’t touch.”

    Kloster cites the bill’s history as a road map for those saying the
    Origination Clause was breached. It was first introduced on Sept. 17,
    2009, as a House resolution by Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel of New
    York and was called the “Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of
    2009.” The House passed that measure and sent it to the Senate.

    Because the Senate was making quicker progress than the House on writing
    legislation to extend healthcare to the uninsured, the Rangel
    resolution became the vehicle for the Senate to proceed with a
    comprehensive healthcare overhaul.

    Once in the Senate, the bill was “gutted almost entirely” and retitled
    the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” which passed on Dec.
    24, 2009.

    The Senate, Kloster said, took the skeleton of the House bill, “threw all of the meat out and completely rewrote the law.”

    “It’s so changed from the original bill that you do have to ask the
    question, ‘Is it violating at least the spirit of the Origination
    Clause?’ and I think that is correct,” Kloster said.

    This is the biggest bunch of BS I have ever witnessed… It was voted on and passed well before it was written. It was written as a fine and well after it was written, it was changed by the Chief Jughead of the Supreme Courtjesters into a tax. At the time the vote was cast, not a single member of Congress could have even imagined that it was a tax. That makes it Taxation Without Representation, which was one of the core reasons that America declared it’s independence from England. I wonder how the English, our closest ally, would feel if the Banana Republic in Washington didn’t honor the same Declaration of Independence that the Founding Fathers shoved down England’s throat 228 years ago?

    I totally agree. Since nothing is too low for O, who knows the level of threat against those in high positions that would normally uphold the Constitution. It’s easy to point fingers but when there’s a chance that your family could start disappearing, or who knows what, standing on your principles may be easier said than done.

  • Nathan Mordecai

    Roberts’ responsibility in this case is to put the stay on it _if_ he believes it is _likely_ that it will be overturned on those grounds. This is not a ruling about whether he WANTS it overturned or not. You’re misunderstanding Roberts’ decision, Glenn.

  • Keith

    I’ll tell you why because Glenn has said it on his show before. Although there is evidence to suggest something fishy is indeed going on, there is no hard evidence and no one with the spinal column to come forward with the hard evidence. So, as such, his producers demand that anything aired be so concrete that it cannot be refuted in a court of law. In other words, it is a legal liability decision. Glenn chooses to disregard it in order to 1) prevent any form of civil litigation being brought which would be impossible for Glenn to defend against, and 2) he chooses to fight the battles where the probability of success is the greatest. I’ll be willing to bet if hard, incontrovertible evidence surfaces that can indeed be verified, then Glenn will get back on that band wagon.

    Funny, I knew it was back then and so did a lot of other people. Either way it was still unconstitutional. YET, the House of Representatives still passed it.

    Your stretching to justify your “Taxation without representation” rhetoric. Just because we were represented poorly, doesn’t mean we were not represented.

    Unfortunately, there is an explanation for this that passes Constitutional muster.

    What the Senate did was to take a bill passed by the House and sent to the Senate, and amended that bill by replacing its entire contents with Obamacare – but never changed the bill number. They then passed that bill and sent it back to the House, which “accepted the amendments.” This made it possible for them to “deem it passed” as Nancy Pelosi said at the time.

    Is it legal? Yes.

    Is it gaming the system, and absolutely contrary to the intentions of the Founding Fathers as found in every writing of theirs on the subject? Also, and indubitably, yes.

    Is the Supreme Court aware of, and turning a blind eye to, this practice? Yes, because they really have no alternative.

    What ‘high crime or misdemeanor’ do you purport would be the grounds to impeach John Roberts? A bad decision? That has never been held to be a ‘high crime or misdemeanor.’ This is entirely illogical. Especially since 4 other SCOTUS Justices agreed with upholding ObamaCare. I’m not saying it was a correct decision. It wasn’t.

    I am aware of that but the House did pass it never the less, hence we were represented whether we like the outcome or not.

    When arguing against ObamaCare, there is only one thing that needs to be focused on:

    1. There is no enumerated power in the Constitution which grants the federal government this authority over us. Therefore it is unconstitutional. End of argument.

    No need to get lost in the weeds with rhetoric about “no taxation without representation.”

    “In the first place it is to be remembered that the general
    government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws. Its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects, which concern all the members of the republic, but which are not to be attained by the separate provisions of any.” ~James Madison, The Federalist Papers No. 14

  • The Blue Tail Gadfly

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for the reply. No matter what version of Obama’s citizenship you go with, it’s fraudulent.

    The most plausible reason I have heard for Glenn’s actions is that Glenn Beck is a business now and doesn’t want to rock the boat with his corporate sponsors.

    For whatever reason Glenn may have, he is still wrong and it only serves to undermine the rule of law, along with the Truth. Amazing how Glenn can go on to promote a Constitutional Convention as a “fix” for the lawlessness in Washington D.C.

    These are extremely dangerous times for our Constitution, there are factions on both the left and the right who seek to fundamentally alter it.

    Stay vigilant my friend,

    BTG

    “Towards the preservation of your government, and the permanency of your present happy state, it is requisite, not only that you steadily discountenance irregular oppositions to its acknowledged authority, but also that you resist with care the spirit of innovation upon its principles, however specious the pretexts. One method of assault may be to effect, in the forms of the Constitution, alterations which will impair the energy of the system, and thus to undermine what cannot be directly overthrown.” ~George Washington’s Farewell Address

    Re: ” So, as such, his producers demand that anything aired be so concrete that it cannot be refuted in a court of law.”

    If that was the case, then Glenn should have taken a neutral position and remained silent until such time.

    Instead, Glenn indeed took a position and mocked Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s FACT finding investigation into this matter along with the “Birthers” on numerous occasions.

    Glenn didn’t even wait for that investigation to conclude before weighing in.

    Obviously, this did not work in the case of John Roberts. He was appointed by G.W. Bush and was presented to the nation as a conservative. We have since seen he is actually a liberal because he changed his vote on ObamaCare (ACA). Roberts, it appears, was swayed by pressure from Obama and the mainstream media. He naturally would not allow any lawsuit to change or repeal ObamaCare as it is not only Obama’s legacy but it is Roberts’ as well. Politics is a dirty business

    Roberts was not appointed by Obama.

    Hardly, it was argued before the SCOTUS that it WAS a TAX by the Obama Administration and confirmed by Justice Roberts in his opinion stating due to it being a tax, it is constitutional.

  • Mark

    Roberts was nominated by George W. Bush. He faced opposition by several Dems including Harry Reid who said, “The stakes are higher and the Senate’s advice and consent responsibility is even more important,” said Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), adding that “the Senate must be vigilant in considering this nomination.” He was quickly confirmed. Don’t think it is payback time due to Republican opposition; it should be just the opposite unless there is some dirt that is being held against him.

    Some suspect it has to do with the adoption of his two children, and how it was handled. There’s some question in many quarters as to the legality of the adoption, and the ensuing coverup. The children are believed to be of Irish heritage, but Roberts claims the adoption was done in Central America. That’s questionable.

    But whatever it is that’s causing him to violate the Constitution, beginning with the swearing in of a usurper president on inauguration day, would have to be something near and dear to him. Otherwise, why would he turn his back on the very thing he’s worked all his life to achieve?

    I’ve been told he and his wife adopted the children from Ireland, which has strict adoption laws regarding removing adopted children from their country of birth. Supposedly, the children were adopted in Central America, however, there is considerable doubt that they were in fact native to Central America.

    Whether this is true or not, it certainly might explain Roberts’ reluctance to go against the Obama machine if they have the adoption papers in hand and are waving them over Roberts’ head.

    Imagine the scandal? SCOTUS Chief Justice guilty of violating international law? Losing his children? Going to prison? The Obama Scum could make things very painful for Roberts and his family.

  • dasbootnbutt

    Sorry, as much as 10 year term limits would, at first glance, limit the ability of a Supreme Court Justice to invoke his supposedly repressed political worldview on all of the cases that cross his bench during his lifetime tenure, the negative effects of this approach outweigh possible positives.

    First, knowing that his supreme judicial career now has a 10 year expiration date with no possibility of renewal, he now has to put a great deal of focus on how his decision process (e.g. – his interpretation of the Constitution and Federal law in regards to each specific case and cause of action) and voting record (e.g. – application of said interpretation) will affect his political future, specifically, his ability to obtain gainful employment that is financially, and in regards to public status, equal to or greater than his previous position as a Supreme Court Justice. Basically, he’s going to want to run for and win a high level political office like Senator or President and his voting record on the Supreme Court is going to follow and haunt him in this process.

    Second, with all that being said, his other option for post-Supreme Court employment will be through political friends and/or whatever administration is in power at the time of him stepping down from the court. So, this will in essence force him to rely more on who’s gonna scratch his back in the future, like say appointing him Ambassador to some tropical island country, if he scratches their back now, when deciding whether to strictly interpret the Constitution against the current administration and for the American people, or send that same administration a slow and steady pitch over the center of home plate and let them bat it out of the park and straight down the throats of the American people.

Sadly, it seems that the rampant use of treachery and lies in achieving one’s goals is more readily accepted by a majority, although I’d like to think “slim majority”, of our fellow citizens and officials. We just have to keep fighting the good fight knowing that the struggle will never truly end.
