    Judicial activism, what a bizzare thing for a very left, liberal president to worry about. One would think that the judiciary making laws would please him almost as much as his ability to executive order them. Of course at the moment it does not appear to be a decision he agrees with.

    It appears that our Anti-Gun President has fired the first shot at the Supreme Court since his first State of The Union Speech.

    Did just one of the four Liberal Justices leak or all 4?

    you can't always read the writing on the wall from the 3 days of oral arguements, but it really didn't seem to go well at all for the prez.

    June is a long ways off, we'll find out then.

    I would hazard a guess that Sotomayor and Kagan were in Dear Leaders private chambers delivering a report. I worry about the conservative justices health. Seriously, I don't put anything past them.

    He could issue an Executive Order and increase the size of the Court to 12 members.
    Let’s see … Rohm Emanuel, Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright and Hilary Clinton.

    Roosevelt pondered it.

    How's that for a nightmare?

    Executive orders pertain only to the Executive Branch of the government. They are an administrative thing, the same as when I tell one of my employees to go clean the bathroom.

    Now, the Executive Branch has enough power that these orders can cause huge damage to the liberties of the people, but changing the makeup of the Supreme Court requires an act of Congress.

    But does he REALLY want to take on the Supreme Court? How hard would it be for them to revisit his birth certificate issue and declare him ineligible for office?

    Just remembering that at one time, the Joint Chiefs sent a reminder to all military commands that valid orders would come through the military chain of command and that no offical, regardless of title, could issue orders directly to a military unit.

    No names or titles were mentioned.

    How many men under arms does The Supreme Court Command? What Division of Federal Law Enforcement is not controlled by the WH? Who is the Commander in Chief of the Military. How many members of the Federal Police Force, Obama promised while campaigning, have already been hired? Why has Homeland Security placed orders for 450 Million rnds of 40 cal in addition to the millions of rnds of .223?

    He scares me and I’m not afraid of anything.

    When has he been stopped by the restrains of the Constitution?

    I just hope that the Military and LE have more respect for their Oath of Office and The Constitution than Obama has.

    How many of those took an oath of allegiance to him or his office? How many of them took an oath of allegiance to the Constitution?

    The checks and balances in our Constitution work, just not right away.

    So do appointments, but he demonstrated he doesn't care about limitations. Don't forget his own words, "I can't wait for Congress!" Whatever he will do, it will be soon.

    And don't forget the willing accomplices in the media, who will act like it is his right and duty to do whatever he feels fit to do.

    Don't kid yourself. If he gives and order to the LEO Community or the Military it WILL be followed. Constitutional or not.
    I have a few friends and acquaintances that are LEO and Military. I have asked them if they would follow an Unconstitutional order or risk their careers and pensions and refuse that order. Most of them said they are not Lawyers and do not make the Law, just enforce it. Yes, they will follow orders until they are ordered not to.

    WHat about all the unelected czsars that are dropping "regulation" all over the place? Isn't that just another sort of activism?

    That's interesting, because MY friends in the Military (USMC) have stated clearly that they are NOT bound by ANY unconstitutional order, and would NOT follow one.
    To the contrary, their oath is TO the Constitution,and NOT the administration currently in power.
    Perhaps my friends are far more American?
    I do not fear our Military, for the most part, they are US, not THEM.(the career politicos)
    I think it an injustice to those who serve to 'carpet' charactorize them as them as blindly following orders.
    In fact, if this were true, it would have happened already.

    He's such an arrogant POS. I say all of the things I can't say here to my wife

    Who am I???

    I was born in one country, raised in another.

    My father was born in another country.

    I was not his only child.

    He fathered several children with numerous women.

    I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in
    me.

    My mother died at an early age from cancer.

    Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a
    book idolizing my father not my mother.

    Later in life, questions arose over my real name.

    My birth records were sketchy.

    No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.

    I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was
    widely accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional
    beliefs and didn't follow Christianity, except in the public eye under
    scrutiny.

    I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult,
    disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.

    That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and
    embarked on a new career.

    I wrote a book about my struggles growing up.

    It was clear to those who read my memoirs, that I had difficulties
    accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.

    I became active in local politics in my 30's then, with help behind the
    scenes.

    I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in
    my 40's.

    They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything.

    I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no
    experience in leading a single organization.

    Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me, as though I
    were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.

    I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances.

    This bolstered my ego.

    At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign
    policy...

    I was very critical of my country in the last war, and seized every
    opportunity to bash my country.

    But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the
    country's economy.

    I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better, and
    every poor person would be fed and housed for free .

    I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.

    It was the free market, banks and corporations .

    I decided to start making citizens hate them and, if they became
    envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.

    I called mine "A People's Campaign."

    That sounded good to all people.

    I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the
    traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular
    support.

    I knew that, if I merely offered the people 'hope', together we could
    change our country and the world..

    So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the
    downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include "persecuted minorities".

    My true views were not widely known and I kept them unknown, until
    after I became my nation's leader.

    I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found
    out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and
    examined those people I associated with. I'm glad they didn't.

    Then I became the most powerful man in the world.

    And then the world learned the truth.

    Who am I?
