Supreme Court 9-0 Decisions Against Obama Reveal Much

                                       

o-constitution

I have to agree with the author here, you know Obama has WAY overstepped his authority when the Supreme Court strikes him down 9-0. Which recent cases came down on Obama 9-0?

In Horne v. Department of Agriculture, a decision issued in June, the justices unanimously rejected the Obama administration’s argument that raisin farmers did not have the right to go to court to contest the seizure of hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of raisins. The Fifth Amendmentstates that the government must pay “just compensation” whenever the government takes private property for “public use.” But the administration claimed that farmers could not even raise the takings issue in court without first enduring lengthy delays and paying a $483,000 fine.

Horne was the administration’s third unanimous defeat in a property rights case in 18 months. In Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency, it claimed that a couple had no right to go to court to seek compensation after the EPA blocked construction of their “dream house.”

In Arkansas Game & Fish Commission v. United States, it unsuccessfully argued that the Fifth Amendment doesn’t require compensation when the federal government repeatedly and deliberately floods property owners’ land. Even liberal justices normally skeptical of property rights claims, including one of President Obama’s appointees, found these arguments too much to swallow.

The Obama administration has also suffered unanimous defeats in several other important cases.

Last year, the justices rejected the administration’s position that the religious freedom guaranteed by the First Amendment does not apply to churches’ decisons to hire and fire employees with religious duties, such as teaching theology. Obama appointee Justice Elena Kagan called the administration’s position “amazing.”

In United States v. Jonesanother 2012 case, the justices unanimously rejected the administration’s claim that the Fourth Amendment does not restrict the government’s authority to attach a GPS tracking device to a car.

Ilya Somin makes the case that both parties have been slapped down like this but I would argue that while this may be true the extent to which Obama is trying to assert unconstitutional authority knows no parallel.

    He will ignore the Court, as he has done with EVERY other decision that has gone against his “fundamental transformation” plans.

    @This one: What!
    You never heard of the federal raisin reserve?
    The raisin reserve is part of what’s called a federal marketing order, a set of rules establishing how much of a specific crop can be sold in any given year.
    The regulations date back to the Agricultural Marketing Agreement of 1937, which sought to give Depression and Dust Bowl-ravaged farmers a way to limit supply collectively so they could raise crop prices to sustainable levels.
    In the past, up to 47 percent of a raisin yield has been reserved this way. Once set aside, they aren’t allowed to be sold.
    This supposedly helps the farmer get a better price for the percent he is allowed to keep and sell.
    However, most of those 22 crop committees have suspended or eliminated their orders in recent years.
    Almond reserves, for example, haven’t been required since 1994; the order on nectarines and peaches was terminated in 2011.
    For three years now the raisin reserve has also not been collected.

    Obama just wanted this one farmer to give up $650,000 in fines and 1.2 million pounds of raisins.
    He must have not had an Obama poster in his front window.

    Chances are this farmer was a registered Republican. Next step, his fight with the IRS.

    Could it be that when obama gets his civilian security force, he won’t have to worry about the supreme court any more?

    hi sir, nice to have you here,
    may I ask your opinion on this question, WHICH NOW IS PUBLIC ON HUCKABEE SHOW BY HIS GUEST,
    is the MILITARY ON THE SIDE OF THE PEOPLE? OR THE PRESIDENT ORDERS,
    IF ABUSES IS DONE TO THE PEOPLE, CAN THE PEOPLE RELY ON THE MILITARY TO PROTECT THEM AGAINST GOVERNMENT IF THE NEED ARISE,
    WE HAVE LEARN THAT THERE IS A FORCE PARAMILITARY IN THIS AMERICA ATTACKING THE GOOD CITIZENS BLOWING THEIR DOOR SHOOTING THEIR DOGS SEARCHING THEIR HOUSE ON THE SURPRISE TIME OF THE NIGHT AND WILL SHOOT THE PEOPLE WHO TRY TO SHOOT THEM, AS IT HAPPEN TO A MARINE, WHICH HAD TIME TO KILL SOME OF THEM,
    AND THEY LEAVE SAYING OOPS IT WAS A WRONG ADDRESS, IT LOOK LIKE THE ARMY OF OBAMA WHICH HE WANTED FROM THE BEGINNING APART AND STRONGER THAN THE MILITARY.
    YOUR OPINION IS HIGHLY BELIEVED,
    BEST TO YOU

    @This one: Your comment could be funny if there were not real farmers being fined over $600,000. You are pathetic and definitely one of those low information voters that Rush talks about. Actually, you may be the one instead of this one!

    If you think Obama has been rebuffed by the SCOTUS 9-0 decision, think again. The point is the SCOTUS hasn’t yet ruled on the myriad of his other offenses. In the Obama view of the Constitution, IF you haven’t been over ruled or ruled against for usurpation it is legal until someone authoritatively says its NOT. IF so ruled against, do the same thing again citing a different reason. Sooner or later people will get tired or run out of money challenging him.

    The point my friends is that everything Obama does is about brinksmanship, even if Obama is ruled against 99 times, he only has to succeed once in not getting ruled against by either the SCOTUS accepting his usurpation or not getting to it in a timely manner. Legal issues can be run out for years in the courts if one is litigious enough, in the meantime he gets away with it. He doesn’t have to do anything he doesn’t want to until he is made to do it.
