Barack Obama thought his great pyramid would be the health care law scam. But
Mess-iah Pharaoh Obama got another surprise yesterday. His heath care, or rather health insurance bailout scam was ruled “unconstitutional”.
Yesterday a federal court in Florida sang “Let My People Go”.
“Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire act must be declared void. This has been a difficult decision to reach, and I am aware that it will have indeterminable implications,” Vinson wrote.”
None of this should surprise our regular readers. The Obama health scam was so badly written it left out the most boilerplate of clauses which insulates an entire law and all its provisions from being overturned on the basis of one faulty provision.
Judge Vinson’s decision notes that there used to be a severability clause in the legislation at one point but that it was removed. This removal Judge Vinson takes to be purposeful and an acknowledgment by congress that this health scam pyramid could not stand once the “mandate” block was removed. Of course, we know it was boobery (as one Obama Dimocrat acknowledged) pure and simple.
The judge ruled the entire law unconstitutional and now Obama and his courtroom clowns will have to get a stay from the courts in order to keep the law from dying a quicker death than Hosni Mubarak.
Judge Vinson referenced the Boston Tea Party in his opinion. The judge also cited what Obama said in 2008. Our readers will remember that at the time we warned Obama that his statements would come back to bite him in his scrawny buttocks. Judge Vinson imprinted his teeth in Barack’s buns:
“I note that in 2008, then-Senator Obama supported a health care reform proposal that did not include an individual mandate because he was at that time strongly opposed to the idea, stating that ‘if a mandate was the solution, we can try that to solve homelessness by mandating everybody to buy a house,’” Judge Vinson wrote in a footnote toward the end of the 78-page ruling Monday.”
Back in February of 2008 we quoted Paul Krugman (he was not an Obama apple polisher then and often spoke the truth) in our warnings to Barack Obama and those who supported genuine Universal Health Care. Wrote Krugman in 2008:
“… Mr. Obama’s campaigning on the health care issue has sabotaged his own prospects.
You see, the Obama campaign has demonized the idea of mandates — most recently in a scare-tactics mailer sent to voters that bears a striking resemblance to the “Harry and Louise” ads run by the insurance lobby in 1993, ads that helped undermine our last chance at getting universal health care.
If Mr. Obama gets to the White House and tries to achieve universal coverage, he’ll find that it can’t be done without mandates — but if he tries to institute mandates, the enemies of reform will use his own words against him.
As we predicted, there was no real “reform”, no real health care reform. What Obama shoveled out instead was the equivalent of billions for Big Insurance and Big PhaRma. Without real reform, without real health care, without the ability to bargain for lower drug prices by Medicare, all that remains is a big fat scam.
Today Senate Republicans will begin their challenge to the waiver-ridden Obama health scam. The assault will continue in the courts. An experienced president knowledgeable about constitutional issues would have known to insist on a severability clause, regional boards to ameliorate Commerce Clause concerns and a “point of contact (such as when someone seeks health care) enrollment” style “mandate” which would have ended the “inactivity” argument cited by Judge Vinson. Instead of a president with experience in government and a history of work for the American people and constitutional understanding – a boob was elected.
If you elect a boob, expect boobery.
It’s not just the boobery and willful collusion with Big Insurance and Big PhaRma Americans have to fear. The boobery crosses the oceans.
As we warned, the Iron Veil is about to cover continents. The Muslim Brotherhood advocates for the Iron Veil and Barack Obama is bowing before the “Brotherhood”. News reports have it that Obama “supports a role for groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned Islamist organization, in a reformed Egyptian government”.
The Muslim Brotherhood does not even have to demand, fight, negotiate, for a place – Barack Obama has already agreed to back their demands. The Obama “negotiator” who has already caved in is Robert Malley:
“If the name Robert Malley sounds familiar, it should. Obama supposedly fired Malley as an adviser for Middle East affairs in April 2008 from his campaign (Malley later claimed he’d quit) after it came out that Malley had met with Hamas on several occasions, despite Hamas’ status as a terrorist group as indicated by the State Department. Those meetings took place through the auspices of the International Crisis Group as well. Malley also helped create J Street, designed as a counterbalance to AIPAC, which lobbies for Israel in Washington, and while a member of Clinton’s team was the only administration official to blame Israel for Yasser Arafat’s refusal to accept the Clinton peace plan.”
Bill Clinton has made it clear that it was Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian leadership who bore responsibility for the failure of peace. Barack Obama chose as an adviser the one former Clinton employee who does not understand basic facts about war and peace in the middle east:
“A leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt told the Arabic-language Iranian news network Al-Alam on Monday that he would like to see the Egyptian people prepare for war against Israel, according to the Hebrew-language business newspaper Calcalist.
Muhammad Ghannem reportedly told Al- Alam that the Suez Canal should be closed immediately, and that the flow of gas from Egypt to Israel should cease “in order to bring about the downfall of the Mubarak regime.” He added that “the people should be prepared for war against Israel,” saying the world should understand that “the Egyptian people are prepared for anything to get rid of this regime.”
If Israel were to disappear today it would not stop the strife nor further expansion of global tensions. The problem is not Israel. The problem is organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood who advocate a Caliphate and who do not want separation of secular government power from spiritual church power.
Byron York writes today about the “conflicting views of democracy and religion” in Egypt:
“Last year the Pew Research Center Global Attitudes Project conducted a survey of opinion in several Muslim countries. The subject was the proper role of Islam in politics and society. One of the countries surveyed was Egypt, and among other discoveries, the Pew researchers found that 84 percent of Egyptians favor the death penalty for people who leave the Muslim religion.
In another survey, Pew found that 90 percent of Egyptians say they believe in freedom of religion. Pew also found that a majority of Egyptians think democracy, with protections of free speech and assembly, is “preferable to any other kind of government.” [snip]
The Pew survey found wide streams of opinion in Egypt that seem at the very least inhospitable to democracy. When asked which side they would take in a struggle between “groups who want to modernize the country [and] Islamic fundamentalists,” 59 percent of Egyptians picked the fundamentalists, while 27 percent picked the modernizers. In a country in which the army will likely play a deciding role in selecting the next political leadership, just 32 percent believe in civilian control of the military. And a majority, 54 percent, support making segregation of men and women in the workplace the law throughout Egypt.”
We previously cited the recent protection of Coptic Christians as a hopeful sign in Egypt. However, the influx of “clerics” into demonstrations and the segregation of women in the “Million Man March” today informs us that the Iron Veil is indeed about to be inflicted on millions in various continents.
Already we see, the Brotherhood moving to strap the Iron Veil on the sisterhood. In Jordan today, under pressure from the Muslim Brotherhood, the King fired the entire cabinet in anticipation of mass demonstrations tomorrow. In Tunisia, a synagogue was set on fire. Some will no doubt foolishly advocate that the Jews of Tunisia are the ones to blame and need to move.
The only one about to move however is Hosni Mubarak. Today “four million Egyptians have taken to the streets across the country to pressure President Hosni Mubarak and his government to step down.”
Mubarak announced today some scheme to stay in office until September and not run for reelection (he said it was his intention all along to leave after having sacrificed himself for the people and that the Obama knife in his back has nothing to do with his new career path). As long as the Egyptian army does not follow the path of the People’s Liberation Army, which decided to attack the much bigger and longer siege at Tienanmen Square in China, Mubarak will have to leave sooner rather than later.
With a snide smile we can say that Hosni Mubarak is as healthy as the Obamacare health care scam and not about to get a waiver.
