Dazed & Confused
by Rick Joyner
This is a brief on the second of seven main crises threatening our country. As a reminder, the Health Meter goes from 1 being the lowest and most dangerous, to 10 being the highest and healthiest. The Trend Arrow is for a quick reference rating with UP for getting healthier, and DOWN for getting worse. These will be followed by a commentary to explain the ratings.
The title of this old Led Zeppelin song seems appropriate for the way many took the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare. The immediate comments I heard when the ruling came down, were “shocked,” “betrayed,” “scary.” Is there any part of our government that we can trust anymore.
The decision itself was a shock, but the rationale behind it written by Chief Justice Roberts was even more incomprehensible. No one expected Roberts to side with the liberals on the court, but if he, or any of the other conservatives did one would expect there to be some profound and previously unforeseen wisdom behind it. There was not. In fact, the reasoning is so flawed that it baffled conservatives and liberals alike. This is no small matter, but this reasoning could potentially open the biggest gate of hell into our nation and culture by the Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade.
The legislation itself is the worst ever passed in America from a practical and moral basis. It not only puts the health care of Americans into the single group that has proven to be the most inefficient, ineffective, incompetently managed—the federal government, but it also funds and releases an army of IRS agents on the American people. When the Iron Curtain came down and Soviet files were exposed by Glasnost, American analysts were surprised to find out that the KGB had never viewed the CIA as their counterpart, but rather the IRS. They understood that it was the IRS that could most easily and quickly control the American people. Chief Justice Roberts’ decision actually pinpointed and affirmed this most devastating component of the bill.
Nothing in our history will have been as devastating to destroying liberty in America like Obamacare if it is allowed to stand. Chief Justice Roberts incomprehensible reasoning for siding with the liberal justices affirmed the worst and most evil part of this bill, calling the individual mandate “a tax” when even Obama Administration lawyers had resolutely denied this. No one, liberal or conservative saw the kind of rationale for this ruling coming because it was not rational. Now it has potentially released the most evil hounds from hell against the American people. Now the gate is open to call anything the government wants to impose on us “a tax” and get away with it.
It is understandable that some are now making the assertion that Chief Justice Roberts’ medication used to control his epilepsy has taken a toll on his mental abilities and reasoning. Nothing else has come forward as an adequate explanation for why he would be the one to free Obamacare like he did to become the biggest grab of totalitarian power over America in history.
This decision has demeaned the Supreme Court itself and called into question the competence of the leader of it. Liberals now think they have an easy dupe to manipulate in the Chief Justice, and conservatives have had their trust in him shaken to the core. This is a terrible tragedy for our system of Justice, and with terrible timing.
Even so, we must keep in mind that there is nothing wrong with our Constitution. It has worked better than any other document since the Ten Commandments to free and prosper people, and will continue to do so if we can find leaders who will keep their vow to defend it, and abide by it. This decision is another example of how you can have the best form of government, but still have bad government if you have bad people running it. You can have the best system of justice, but still not have justice if you have bad judges. Our Constitution and system of justice were designed to compensate for and contain the worst human tendencies, but as the Founders maintained, it can work for a good and moral people.
The most important thing many were looking for in this decision was if it was moored to the Constitution, not politics. It was not moored to the Constitution, and with the exception of the liberals being themselves and the conservatives being themselves, we cannot yet comprehend what happened to Roberts. This decision has deepened our national crisis, and jeopardized our Constitution at a most inopportune and dangerous time.
We will get over being dazed, and we will get over being confused, and this can ultimately work for good. No doubt this will help mobilize and energize Americans who believe their most basic liberties are being trampled and stolen from them. It has likely handed Mitt Romney a huge gift to campaign on, even though Obama claimed to model his bill after the one Romney had passed when Governor. Even so, Romney had pledged to repeal Obamacare, and substantiated his resolve to do this. Romney’s immediate response to this American tragedy was (as covered in NEWSMAX):
“Today, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. But regardless of what the Court said about the constitutionality of the law, Obamacare is bad medicine, it is bad policy, and when I'm President, the bad news of Obamacare will be over."
“It was always a liberal pipedream that a 2,700 page, multi-trillion-dollar Federal Government takeover of our health care system actually could address the very serious problems we face with health care. With Obamacare fully installed, government will reach fully half of the economy -- that is the recipe for a struggling economy and declining prosperity."
“On Day One, I will work to repeal Obamacare to stop the government's takeover of our health care and intrusion in our lives. I will push for real reform to our health care system that focuses on helping patients and protecting taxpayers."
There have been a number of anchors imposed on the American economy by the Obama Administration, but Obamacare has been the biggest. At best we can expect the creation of new jobs in America to languish until this bill is resolved, continuing the main problem that Obama has to overcome to be re-elected—the struggling economy. While this ruling will likely hurt Obama more than help him, in the meantime the economic suffering will continue in America, if not get dangerously worse.
It now seems that the American Republic is under unrelenting attack from every possible direction. Let us not faint, but keep in mind that the greatest victories only come when there are great battles. No doubt this will wake up many more Americans to the battle we are in. Great souls run to the sound of battle, not away from it. America still has many great souls who will fight regardless of the odds against them, and who will stand and never surrender for the sake of the freedom that was their birthright. This Supreme Court Decision has only increased the volume of the alarm and we can expect many more to hear it now.
