WHAT WOULD YOU EXPECT FROM A COLLEGE GRAD WHO DIDN’T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AUTO ‘LIABILITY’ INSURANCE & ‘COMPREHENSIVE’

Yep … our ‘teachable moment on steroids’ president either missed his first class on Constitutional Law when his professor discussed Marbury v. Madison or he’s just doing what he always does when he’s in trouble.

Moving his lips.

Marbury v. Madison established way back in 1803 that the Supreme Court has the power and the duty to determine the constitutionality of actions by the other branches of government.


Marbury v. Madison (1803)


From the opinion:

Why does a judge swear to discharge his duties agreeably to the constitution of the United States, if that constitution forms no rule for his government? if it is closed upon him, and cannot be inspected by him?

If such be the real state of things, this is worse than solemn mockery. To prescribe, or, to take this oath, becomes equally a crime.

It is also not entirely unworthy of observation, that in declaring what shall be the supreme law of the land, the constitution itself is first mentioned; and not the laws of the United States generally, but those only which shall be made in pursuance of the constitution, have that rank.

Thus, the particular phraseology of the constitution of the United States confirms and strengthens the principle, supposed to be essential to all written constitutions, that a law repugnant to the constitution is void; and that courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument.
--- MARBURY V. MADISON (1803)


Is there any doubt that this president, who has said that our Constitution is “fatally flawed” because it limits what temporary politicians can do, has no respect for this nation’s framework, laws, and traditions? Or that he considers himself above the Constitution, the Congress and Court?

Now do you see why leftists appoint Justices like Sonya Sotomayor and Elena Kagan who consider "empathy" and "feelings" and "emotions" when deciding on constitutional issues.

He is now publicly attacking, intimidating and trying to influence the Justices of the Supreme Court.

I can see liberals scurrying to the usual left-wing sites to get there talking points on why Marbury. V. Madison is a bogus argument.

We are losing this country, folks.

When the Constitution is gone, your rights are subject to the whim of temporary politicians and bureaucrats … and actually “temporary” might be a little optimistic.
