Several of Obama’s fat stooges, former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, Dick “Eddie Haskell” Durbin, and The Combover, sleazy Chicago political operative David Axelrod, appear on Sunday shows to try to clean up the mess created by the Obama administration’s Benghazi coverup, a coverup necessary because the murder of 4 Americans on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by al Qaeda destroys Obama’s fairy tale about his foreign policy prowess. Yes, bin Laden is dead, but sadly, so is J. Christopher Stevens, and with him, the One’s narrative about destroying al Qaeda. They are on the march, which makes Van Jones’ statement that Barack Obama is a “towering figure in foreign policy” beyond ridiculous.

Debbie Wasserman Schulz continues democrats’ lying about the Lilly Ledbetter Act. It’s not, and never was, a “equal pay” act, and uses lame “binders of women” phrase to try to bash Mitt Romney. Greta Van Sustren correctly characterizes that as “silly.”

Trying to Intimidate the Court:The Left’s Tired “Judicial Activism” Routine

As we noted on last Sunday’s edition of the Teri O’Brien Show, now that the Supreme Court is considering the Constitutionality of Obamacare, our Dear Reader, along with his foot soldiers in Congress and the media, has begun a full court press to try to ensure the survival of his “signature achievement,” the Affordable Care Act and the resulting destruction of individual freedom and the limited government architecture of the Constitution, so prized by the Founders. Basketball he knows. The Constitution? Not so much. In the defense of this ridiculous product of kickbacks, bribes and back room deals, he and his mouthpieces have trotted out an argument that has become one of their favorites in recent years, the accusation that striking down this mess would constitute the “judicial activism” that conservatives have been complaining about for decades. Sen. Chuck Schumer and Terry Moran, a “journalist” at ABC, dutifully recited it on the Sunday shows this past week. Bill Clinton added his voice to the chorus yesterday. Here he is lying AGAIN, this time about the Supreme Court’s consideration of Obamacare.

Then, in the most disgraceful and embarrassing presentation of this pathetic assertion, the One himself did so yesterday.

This argument has some merit; specifically, it makes you think, and thinking is good. When any attempt to role back the Left’s agenda, usually imposed by unelected judges because it could never have survived the ballot box, meets with that silly “judicial activism” whine, it makes me think “MMM. . . (a) are they just projecting again, (b) do they really believe this garbage, or (c) are they just saying it because they think the low-information people that they like to con into supporting them will?”

Correct answer: for the apparatchiks who are working to “remake” America, c. The Left’s latest attempt to twist the meaning of simple words in the service of political expediency is nothing new. Nothing they do is new. They have been surviving on the rotting corpse of Karl Marx for over 100 years. Their tactics are insufferably predictable. Deception and distortion are the tactics that they use to win support from the afore-mentioned low-information voters, many of whom haven’t the slightest clue what the phrase “judicial activism” means and why it was coined. To begin their education, I  point them to Griswold v. Connecticut, the infamous “penumbra” case. Justice Douglas that found a “right of privacy” right there in the Constitution that no one had seen before! Shazam! Eventually, the Court used that “right” to enact the “trimester” scheme imposed on the states to restrict their right to regulate abortion. I use the word “enact” purposefully because anyone who can read Roe v. Wade and claim it’s anything other than legislation is fooling himself.

That is judicial activism; that is, where a court on its own initiative decides a case in pursuit of a particular public policy that it deems desirable. Where the Court compares the language of the Constitution and the intent of the Founders with a piece of legislation, finds that it the law in question violates the Constitution, and strikes it down, that is not judicial activism. That is simply the Court doing its job under the system of separation of powers conceived by the Founders.

When the Left attacks traditional institutions, like marriage, and persuades judges to impose the liberal agenda on an unwilling American public, by destroying them, that is activism. When courts, committed to abiding by the Constitution and the essential system of separation of powers that it includes, restore those institutions and set things right, the Left can call it activism all day long, but that doesn’t make it so.

“Fairness” v. Freedom: Show Notes, The Teri O’Brien Show, 4/1/12

About 15 minutes into this episode of the program, we experienced a complete loss of internet connection. So that accounts for any dead air that you hear. We were back by the bottom of the first hour, and all was well thereafter. I really appreciate those of you who hung in there until we were back!

Brain-damaged Keith Olbermann fired AGAIN. Replaced by the 2nd least talented personality on television, Eliot “Client #9″ Spitzer. (Least talented? Chelsea Clinton, of course!)

Thanks to our guest, Van Irion of the Liberty Legal Foundation to share his thoughts about the Supreme Court’s oral arguments on the Affordable Care Act. Please visit the LLF website for tons of useful information on the legal challenge to Obamacare, Barack Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of president, immigration, and more!

Lame Stream Media dutifully recites Obama campaign talking point that Mitt Romney is filthy rich and “out of touch,” neglecting to mention that Barack and Michelle continue to live at a level of luxury unheard of in human history, in part on our dime. At least Mitt Romney is spending his own money, not ours, no?

GOP rising stars Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Tea Party favorite Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) endorse Mitt Romney. Rubio says a brokered convention would be a DISASTER for the GOP nominee. Is he right? Is he eligible to be Vice President?

On ABC’s “This Week,” Communist/former Obama “green czar” (there’s a really important function!) Van Jones says GOP should nominate Condi Rice for VP and watch Obama campaign go crazy, and Terry Moran tries to intimidate the Supreme Court by bringing up Bush v. Gore. He looks shocked when George Will tells him that no one cares about Bush v. Gore, and says that “we don’t know” Mitt Romney. Oh yeah, Terry, as opposed to Barack Obama, who is a complete open book, thanks to you and your vigilant colleagues terrific journalism to vet him in 2007 and 2008.

Our favorite April Fool, Joe “Gaffe Machine” Biden is at it again.

Chris Matthews and his panel, including Dan “fake but accurate” Rather praise B. Hussein’s obnoxious comments about the Trayvon Martin case, but ignore the New Black Panther Party’s felonious bounty on George Zimmerman.
