Constitutional Torture: Sharia Law Arrives in the United States

 

The Supreme Court of the United States handed down two historical milestone rulings last week.

First, they supported the use of subsidies in State-run health insurance exchanges under The Affordable Care Act.

Next, same-sex marriage is now legal in all 5o States.

At the center of these rulings is Chief Justice John Roberts.

For many, the twisted logic used to arrive at these two decisons is cause for serious concern. Does the Supreme Court function as the Founders intended, serving as a important check and balance that the laws Congress passes are Constitutional?  Or are we now living in a different sort of Republic?

Constitutional torture is an art, and Chief Justice John Roberts has emerged as its Andy Warhol: an impresario who will put his name on anything.

It is uncomfortable to think about, but our Supreme Court functions in much the same way as Iran’s Guardian Council: It is a supralegislative body of purported scholars, distinguished by ceremonial black robes, that imaginatively applies ancient doctrines “conscious of the present needs and the issues of the day,” as the ayatollahs over there and over here both put it, deciding — discovering! — what is mandatory and what is forbidden as the shifting currents of politics dictate. The main difference is that the Iranians take their sharia rather more seriously than we take our constitutional law: John Roberts’s opinion in Burwell wasn’t just wrong — wrong can be forgiven — it was embarrassing, craven, and intellectually indefensible.

Chief Justice Roberts went one way on The Affordable Care Act, then reversed field on same-sex marriage.

Is Roberts committed to following the rule of law and upholding the Constitution?

Or is he a “pop culture” Chief Justice swayed by popular opinion and majority (and monied) influence?

  • ConservativeMe

    Our Constitution was created to keep porus’ like obama in check and this is AMERICA not the middle east, here WE follow the CONSTITUTION, period! When American citizens become flippant about other Americans being beheaded on AMERICAN SOIL as just another beheading by a nutcase then YOU are part of the problem & beheadings should NEVER become “normal” on AMERICAN SOIL… they say not every muslim is a terrorist but all terrorists are muslim so I watch them all as I can’t tell the difference.
    Islam itself should not be practiced on American soil for the simple fact that Islam’s sharia ideology cannot coexist with America’s Supreme law of the Land aka our CONSTITUTION .
    Islam should keep their ideology in the middle east if other’s do not want it in their country because every religion can coexist with each other but islam cannot coexist with ANYONE & just barely with each other…

    • Jim

      And you are so right ConservativeMe, I think that the reason John Roberts is prone to go along is that someone, high up in political circles, has some kind of important dirt on him that makes him afraid to oppose the Communists who are presently in charge of our government. Maybe someone, such as Judicial Watch, or one of the many other watchdog groups, could research Mr. Roberts background for any such information. If the Commies can use it to coerce, so can the Conservative Americans.

      • jon

        considering NSA spying on all communication, i bet Roberts has a sexual perversion he wants kept secret and therefor Roberts does what he is ordered by NSA handlers. hay maybe NSA operatives put child porn on his computer and was told don’t sweat it dude, when certain cases come up on the court you will vote as we tell you or we tell the press and arrest you.

        • kunling

          I suspect it’s something involving irregularities in Roberts adoption of his two children from a foreign country that are potentially “embarrassing”

      • robohobo60

        I imagine the dirt involves farm animlas or young boys.

      • jamesowens

        or he developed a conscious and decided to do the right thing– or even the thieves that had the dirt on him making him do bad were destroyed and now he could do the right thing

        • jon

          nay, he did the wrong things to protect his hidden sex perversions.

    • Champ98

      I am in agreement. Sharia law has no place in America and yet obama has taken a stand that muslims ought to be able to be governed by their own Law within the boundaries of the USA.

      Sharia law has been allowed to supersede our Constitutional Laws and be used as the final determination in civil and criminal cases in the USA. This has become more prevalent during the last couple of years as obama has invited more muslims into our Nation.

      We need to be VERY alert at the attempts to overtake our country from within. There are currently multiple ISIS terrorist camps in every state in the USA!!! YES every one!!!

      • ConservativeMe

        They say not all muslims are terrorist BUT all terrorists are muslim and I can’t tell the difference so I watch em all….

        VALID QUESTIONS :

        1) Do “moderate” muslims believe “moderate” infidels exist?

        2) When islamic radicals hits a normal American neighborhood will muslim neighbors stand with their American infidel neighbors or with their islamic radical brethren?

        3) If muslims are willing to kill their OWN child in what they call “honor killings” should we still believe that they care about us and our children?

        4) Why is it that EVERY religion on this planet can coexist with each other EXCEPT for islam as muslims attack people in their own countries for their own beliefs?

        5) This video answers question # 2…

            I have NO dealings with Queers… One tried to hire me to repair his Olympus film camera… I simply told him I do not service Olympus at all , and sent him packing… that was when 95% of Queers were still in their closets…

            And who’s fault is that? If republicant lawmakers wouldn’t have kept discriminating against them this issue would have gone away 10 years ago. Now it will be gerrymandering and illegal immigrants. Republicants will keep those issues alive until they lose them in court too

          No, now you must give them the respect you expect to receive, and the freedom to believe what they want to believe, even if different from your beliefs. Their lifestyle DOES NOT affect your religious freedom, and I know many of them who are active members of the Lutheran and Catholic churches. As Pope Francis said – WHO AM I TO JUDGE? And as Jesus said – “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” So, think just one thing before you attack them again – W.W.J.D.

            wrong. trying to take away my religious rights and my 1st amendment right of free speech. now since I do not agree with their sin it is considered hate speech. I will never agree with them. so come and get me if you dare.

          • R. Eilers

            You lost no religious rights and no 1st amendment rights. You dont have to agree but if you discriminate you break the law of our Constitution

        Queer things weren’t allowed to touch the Constitution.

    • BJM2

      Gays have the right to all the same benefits from their country as heterosexuals. Their lifestyle DOES NOT affect your life in ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM. It is you who are advocating going against our Constitution and Christian living. And – very honestly, most gays I know are MORE Christian, caring, and compassionate than all those so-called Christians doing the complaining. Why aren’t you complaining about all those heterosexuals who are keeping adultery alive and well and who are also responsible for sex slavery continuing among young children. They are the ones who have a lot to fear when they face their Maker.

      • tnetcenter

        Their “lifestyle” DOES affect me when they start pushing for radical changes to existing well established societal norms like marriage and destroying Christian businesses when the Christians honor THEIR faith! NOBODY has a right to NOT BE OFFENDED!!

        • BJM2

          If those “so-called” Christian businesses refused to serve Jews, Muslims, atheists, then you might have a point. But – they don’t. It is nothing but based on their personal biased feelings about gays.

      Discrimination is not contrary to the constitution

  • R. Eilers

    Roberts was interpreting the ACA law the way the entire law was written, not just one wrong word. Discrimination should not be allowed in the United States of America, like it was in the Confederate States of America

    • csmith1956

      But it has been allowed and is still in practice, especially in the North.

    • rmwayne

      And what do you call it when certain groups are penalized by having to pay for this Obamacare atrocity while other groups are completely let off the hook? If that isn’t discrimination, I don’t know what is. And it’s all subsidized by the left wing feds. I’ll take the former Confederacy over the abomination this country has become any time.

      Completely absurd and ridiculous!! The SC is NOT supposed to “interpret” anything, they are supposed to compare the Case before them to the Constitution and rule on the constitutionality of the lower court rulings in the case. They are also REQUIRED to RECLUSE themselves when they MIGHT have a conflict of interest! They didn’t do ANY of that!

      BOTH cases will likely wind up being REHEARD! It’s NOT over yet!

      • R. Eilers

        Stick a fork in it teatard because it’s done. The SC job IS to interpret the law and if congress doesn’t like it they can change it. With discrimination in the gay marriage, the SC ruling stands and congress cant change it

      How loud did you yell when they overstepped their authority and made George W. Bush president?

      • Peter Smith

        Didn’t yell one bit homegirl. Your tone says that you probably did. Really didn’t need it though, by all counts Bush votes beat out the votes cast for Gore. This includes the hand counts. Gore and the liberals lost TWICE! Excellent!

        • BJM2

          Were you in a coma when Bush was elected? Gore won the popular vote, but due to our voting rules, Jeb Bush was able to manipulate the voting in Florida and he swung the election in favor of his brother because of the electoral votes he gave to him from Florida. Then, the second time around, gullible Americans, I knew one personally who really disliked Bush, were told that you are not supposed to change presidents in the middle of a war so they reluctantly voted for Bush. Of course, I asked them – how did you handle the dilemma the next election when you had no choice but to change presidents in the middle of a war?

          • tnetcenter

            Got ANY proof?? Or just an over-active delusional imagination??

          • BJM2

            It was all over the news at the time, they just couldn’t get anyone in Florida to speak up officially as it was even more Republican then than it is now. If I thought enlightening you would help our country, I would do the paperwork to prove it to you. However, you are not worth the time needed, since i am positive that you are not going to change your thinking even with hard cold facts in front of you. Most people do not change their biases no matter what proof is presented to them.

          • Frederick Bowers

            All over the news is the key statement. The media is so liberal that you should stick your head back in the sand after making that statement. They never say anything about Republicans unless it is negative. Thus your last statement is true including dumbocrates . Just one example “I did not have sex with that woman” proof but it do any good, even after it was proven? Bengazie, “What difference does it make? etc. And of course obama just opening his mouth !

          • Peter Smith

            But the US Presidential elections are not based on popular vote, are they. The electoral college casts the electoral votes for each state based on popular vote of that state. GIf you think Jeb influenced the Florida votes, prove it, until then, sit down and shut up. You make some truly asinine assertions about the second election as well, once again, put up or shut up. And of course you asked these persons about the “dilemma”. Sorry, but I’m not allergic to liberal BS, I just smart enough to see through fabrications.

            The rank and file Republicans are the ones who believe the party line, not most Democrats. Of course, being that we are all human, there are some honest thinking Republicans, although most of them have left the party. And, there are some party line Democrats but I am not in that class. I check out all my facts before I state them as dogmatic truth. And – most of all, I speak to you with respect, the sign of a caring human being.

          • Bill Cottrell

            The Supreme Court decided the Bush election fair and square. If “tree-hugger and liberal environmentalist” Gore had been elected we would have only hastened the terrible mess we are in today. Yes, Al Gore, the STRICT Environmentalist—the guy that has a huge multi-million $$ mansion AND 4-5 Gas-Guggling SUV’s…yet he wanted everyone else to drive the little coffin-on-wheels vehicles! Ni, I did not 100% agree with everything that George W. Bush did while in office, but he is NOT a “racist” like Odummer, who only feeds the fire in Ferguson, Mo., Baltimore, and Charleston, SC. Racism in this countrywill never be over as long as we have Obama, Al “no-so- Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and others, as they are the ones who are making $$ MILLIONs to further the flames of racism. I have a Black son-in-law, that I would not trade for the world; he has a college education, respects the law, and makes excellent money.

          • BJM2

            No, racism will not be over until there are no more racists. If you are able to think rationally and impartially, you have to wonder why the attacks on blacks has increased. Racists know they cannot go and do anything to President Obama, but they CAN to a poor black kid. They treat blacks differently and that is the truth!!!! Actually, I think that our President has been extremely politically correct. He has extended sympathies WITHOUT bringing the race issue up. And – I don’t care if Gore isn’t following the environmental road 100% . It only makes him human. My partner is an animal lover and will turn off any movie showing abuse to animals, yet will not let me talk about the horrible abuse in the food industry because then that requires taking a stand for animals and becoming a vegetarian – not going to happen. So, ignore the facts and hope it goes away – BUT IT WON’T!!! THE TRUTH IS THE TRUTH.

            And ask your son-in-law to tell you the truth. Can he walk down any street in any town in our country without worrying about police finding a way to arrest him? I worked with a female doctor who said she had to be extremely careful that she didn’t break any laws or she would be stopped by the police without question. The truth shall set you free. And my final comment. I disagreed with you without using one derogatory name for you, unlike the total disrespect that I get from almost all of the commenters who disagree with me.

    THE SUPREME COURT WAS ESTABLISHED TO DO ONE THING, “MEASURE” EVERY CASE BROUGHT BEFORE IT IN LIGHT OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, PERIOD! IT MAY USE PREVIOUS RULINGS OF THIS SAME COURT TO EXPLAIN OR SUBSTANTIATE THE DECISION NO OTHER CASE LAW FROM OTHER COURTS APPLY.. THAT IS NOT WHAT THEY JUST DID!!!!

      They’ve definitely FAILED at their job and should be removed from the bench AND the profession – they’re either incompetent OR criminal! Either way, they need to be gone!

      When this court upheld the provision in the new healthcare law because they felt they could not let 8 million people without coverage, they lost any credence they had . I’m not saying those people don’t need our help or consideration but I am saying that charity is not the job of the supreme court. They should have struck down the law because it violates our constitutional right to choose what we want or can afford. They then should have written their suggestion to the congress to amend or pass helpful laws that are constitutional.To penalize the population by threats of fines or worse,because they choose not to sign up for medical coverage is a violation of our basic right to our own opinion . We drink and eat to much sugar and fat everyday, which is harmful to our good health and the almighty court doesn’t say anything about that. So, if I want to spend my money on sugar and fat instead of health insurance , It’s my right to choose . If I’m risking bad health or hoping someone will help me if I do get sick, it’s still my choice and none of the courts business . Rob423

    THe Constitution actually died upon the birth of the idea that it is a “Living Document”. What that means is that it can be reinterpreted according to the whims of those iwho exert the greatest influence at any point in time.

    The founders were NOT fools. Ask yourselfif you or they would agree to a contract which the other party has the power to reinterpret at its convenience. Then, you’ll understand why Jefferson correctly warned that the Constitution might be “rendered meaningless by construction”

    The supreme court can NOT make laws. Their function is to support the constitution! The need to be removed!

    • Robert J Fritz

      Finally Dave, You have hit the nail on the head . WE have to stop arguing among ourselves and wasting time calling each other names and focus on what the real problem is. And that is the present day supreme court which has outlived it’s usefulness . It was supposed to be a check and balance on the power of our federal Legislators and the president but these 9 people , who are no different than you or I , have grabbed the power for themselves . They have disregarded the constitution and do so without fear because they have been appointed for life . What nonsense !! . No one should hold any power in a democratic setting with out being elected for a set range of time. As it is, no matter their short comings , their personal bias , their mental state , or their out dated beliefs , we can not remove them . That is not right . Just think of the many important decisions we , 350 million of us, are forced to live with that were actually decided by one person ( a 5 to 4 ) vote. We ,the people ,should tell our legislators how to vote, not the court . Otherwise, why waste time and money electing people to represent us.
      We should not let this become a circus or a witch hunt but rather a serious effort from all of us to keep the pressure on to force a change . Lets get rid of rule by nine people just because they wear black robes. Rob423

    Roberts is just another liberal democrat, progressive, marxist, communist dictator. He will help obama take power as a dictator hoping to be able to fit into obamas grand communist machine. This country is starting to go just like all the other countries that have became marxist, communist dictator lead countries like Cuba. And since he will have control of the military and there are too many lazy people in America it is going to be difficult for us patriots to stop him. Before everyone starts jumping me I did not say impossible, I said difficult. We must start putting together plans to take back our white house and government. The lawless democrats have had control way too long.

  • Robert S. Allen

    Our US Constitution (Article I Section 1) vests ALL legislative powers in Congress. Neither the Executive nor the Judiciary (Articles II and III) have law-making power. Article VI declares that the Constitution, Laws, and Treaties are the Supreme Law of the Land binding on the States and their Judges. The time is here for Congress to define “Marriage” as between one man and one woman.

    Actually, to me, this article is asking us to be in line with Sharia Law, not against it. It is saying, as is being said in the Middle East, everyone must be a “so-called” Christian to be respected in this country. The only difference between them (mostly Republicans) and the Middle East is that they have not resorted to killing those who do not go along with them, but who knows when they will start doing that. Our country was founded on the SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. I am a devout Catholic, but I DO NOT BELIEVE that I must force my religious beliefs on all Americans. It is between them and Our Maker.

    • Paul Calhoon

      I am not worried about Christians killing those who do not agree with them. I am much more fearful that the general population will kill us Christians as was done to Christians in the Roman Empire in the very early days of Christianity.

    • Procius

      The founding fathers of this country never heard of SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE that is a phrase coined many, many years after the founding of this country by a politician. there is nothing in the Constitution about the Separation of Church and state either. The first amendment provides for protection from Congress establishing any religion or prohibiting the free exercise of your choice of religion, my words not a quote.

  • dondh

    The Supreme Court of the United States handed down two historical milestone rulings last week.

    First, they supported the use of subsidies in State-run health insurance exchanges under The Affordable Care Act.

    Next, same-sex marriage is now legal in all 5o States.

    At the center of these rulings is Chief Justice John Roberts

    What in the world do these two things have to do with Sharia Law?? Am I missing something? Somebody please explain! Thank you!! It seems to me that Sharia Law is a totally different anti-American and anti-Christian practice that should never be allowed here in our country!! Do the people in Congress really know what Sharia Law is? I doubt it! One thing it means is that women become 2nd and 3rd class citizens! Now I would call them that, I would call them almost animals according to this Law! They have little to no rights and must be submissive to the male population. But the male population have complete control over the female population! Also, young girls are subject to FGR, female genital mutilation! How barbaric! In general, women are not allowed out in public unless almost totally covered up! Also, in most cases, a women can get raped by one or several men and unless the women can produce a witness, she is guilty and the rapist(s) gets off scott free while the women can be stoned to death or killed some other way! There are a number of other ridiculous things in this law that should never, never be allowed! The last thing I would add here is that boy children get treated totally different than girl children. In some cases, girls are not allowed to be schooled and could even at a young age, can be purchased as a wife to some filthy young man or old muslim man!
    I don’t know about you, but I never want to see this in our country! But you know what? This president and his puppets are not going to do a thing about it! Why, because he is a muslim himself and is and has supported certain muslim groups! I just can’t understand why our political groups, members of Congress, Supreme Court members and supporters of this socialist fraud! I say fraud because I still believe he is illegal to be our president, he has lied about several thing and made some decision that needed approval from Congress, but went ahead anyway without their approval! That is totally against the law and is subject to IMPEACHMENT! I BELIEVE HE MUST BE IMPEACHED ASAP BEFORE HE TOTALLY DESTROYS OUR COUNTRY!

  • Paul Calhoon

    I, personally, do not have a problem with Chief Justice Roberts opinions. If I remember correctly he voted against gay marriage. On the matter of Oboma Care, he voted for it being Constitutional. I think Justice Roberts thinks for himself and sometimes he does not agree with the conservative political spectrum and sometimes he does agree with that spectrum (maybe i think this because at times I can upset my conservative friends with my opinion while most of the time I upset my liberal friends with my opinion). Actually, Supreme Court Justice Kennedy is the one Conservatives should be upset with. As I understand it, Justice Kennedy was appointed by a Republican President who thought Kennedy was a Conservative. History has shown that Justice Kennedy is anything but a Conservative.

  • Procius

    SCOTUS and especially Roberts is going way beyond their authority with these decisions that are being handed down. They do not nave the authority to take a law before them and reword it to make it fit what they want it to mean. Their ONLY purpose is to determine if the law before them is or is not constitutional. Just who the hell do they think they are. One OBAMA is enough (actually to much) for any country. Congress needs to nullify these decisions with a simple majority vote, in both houses, using the power given them in the Constitution, Article Three, Section Two. Come on HOUSE, SENATE, GROW A PAIR, TRY WORKING FOR THE PEOPLE FOR A CHANGE

    We need a system that can certify these judges before they go before congress? This would keep these the best I can say it is irregular judges out of control of normal citizens lives. We need clear thinking people to do this job. If we had the right people on the Supreme Court this gay marriage garbage would have been thrown out for good. The same could be said about ACA. The court called it a tax, and if that’s the case it is an illegal tax. The Obamacare fiasco should have been thrown out as well. The Supreme Court does not have the everyday run of the mill citizens in mind with these atrocious rulings. The court should be looking at how many people these rulings affect in a negative manner. They are tromping on peoples religious beliefs, and tramples on everyday people who just don’t like the socialistic bull shit.

    Roberts is actually an unelected politician and Lawyer, at the same time. His complete failure of Principles and understanding of the purpose of the Supreme Court proves that “Any Position” with lifelong security is the greatest cause of graft and corruption in the history of mankind. The SCOTUS is just an extension of the Congress, all about “What’s in it for me?”! As long as no Term Limits exist in DC, is as long as our Nation will be destroyed by corruption and scums like Reid, Pelosi, Boehner…..I could go on for days!

    The SCOTUS is supposed to rule on the constitutionality of the cases before them. This is no longer the case as the SCOTUS is more and more inclined politically as the POTUS appoints the judges that comprise the SCOTUS. So the decisions are based on politics and not the Constitution. It is time to figure a way to appoint the judges to not be politically inclined.

    American citizens, with the dreaded “Ostrich Disease”(their heads up their rear ends), refuse to stand up for their own country. Hitler’s Concentration Camp survivors and their relatives are quick to say that “OUR” government is going through the same steps as Hitler did, before and during WWII. I would suggest a web search of “The 45 Communist Goals for America” and “The Communist Manifesto”. A simple review of our time since Roosevelt’s “tour of duty” will see this slowly flowing into and over America. It really gained speed in the ’60s. Still … “We the Sheeple” do nothing. Be sure and do a thorough search on the FEMA Camps, especially those with crematoriums. Years ago, when I contacted my Congressman, I was told that they were for detaining “Illegal Aliens”. However, NONE have been detained there, as far as I have found out!! And Washington told us, following the Korean Conflict”, to never fear the “Bear of Communism to raise its head in America”.l Yet, they allowed the Communist Part to openly operate in America. Sharia Law should have never been considered here in America. LOOK at the percentage of “increase’ during Obama’s Rule!!! Even the Communist Party arose and charged the Democratic Party with: 1.stealing their agenda, 2. changing its name to Progressive and 3. claiming it as their own!!! “Here’s Your Sign”
