In his dissent on the SCOTUS gay marriage decision, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote:
Human dignity has long been understood in this country to be innate. When the Framers proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,” they referred to a vision of mankind in which all humans are created in the image of God and therefore of inherent worth. That vision is the foundation upon which this Nation was built.
The corollary of that principle is that human dignity cannot be taken away by the government. Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them. And those denied governmental benefits certainly do not lose their dignity because the government denies them those benefits. The government cannot bestow dignity, and it cannot take it away.
George Takei twisted this into an obscenity, then called Justice Thomas a “clown in black-face” for saying what he had not said:
And for him to say, slaves have dignity. I mean, doesn’t he know that slaves were in chains? That they were whipped on the back. If he saw the movie 12 Years a Slave, you know, they were raped. And he says they had dignity as slaves or – My parents lost everything that they worked for, in the middle of their lives, in their 30s. His business, my father’s business, our home, our freedom and we’re supposed to call that dignified? Marched out of our homes at gun point. I mean, this man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America.
The Left won, but it wasn’t about love. Those people are filled with hate even after they’ve gotten what they wanted. One of them actually spit on Fox News’ Father Jonathan Morris during a gay pride event Sunday night. Father Jonathan responded with this:
Our own Grunt weighed in on the Left’s hate-filled response to WINNING.
“Bitter, vile, evil people. Somebody should remind them that when conservatives were soundly defeated in 2008, we reacted with graciousness and optimism and cautious praise for Obama’s potential.” -The Grunt of Monte Cristo

Daniel Bongino: Yesterday the Supreme Court “deferred” to the people and their legislators to defend liberalism. Today the Supreme Court ignored the people and their legislators to do the same. We have become completely unmoored from any judicial or constitutional restraint.
1 Tim 1:4 Now the Spirit explicitly says that in the last times some will turn away from the faith by paying attention to deceitful spirits and demonic instructions 2 through the hypocrisy of liars with branded consciences. 3 They forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
2 Tim 3:1 But understand this: there will be terrifying times in the last days. 2 People will be self-centered and lovers of money, proud, haughty, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, irreligious, 3 callous, implacable, slanderous, licentious, brutal, hating what is good, 4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 as they make a pretense of religion but deny its power. Reject them.
2 Tim 4:3 For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine but, following their own desires and insatiable curiosity, will accumulate teachers 4 and will stop listening to the truth and will be diverted to myths.
WASHINGTON, D.C., June 25, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Although the Supreme Court upheld ObamaCare subsidies in a 6-3 decision together, its ruling in King v. Burwell provoked sharp condemnation from the rapier mind of Justice Antonin Scalia.
“The Supreme Court has violated its authority, ignored its responsibilities, twisted the plain meaning of the English language, and undermined the rule of law,” Scalia wrote in a dissent offered on behalf of himself, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito.
“We should start calling this law SCOTUScare,” Scalia wrote. This ruling, coupled with a prior ruling that said the federal government had the right to force Americans to purchase health insurance – shows that the Court’s liberal bloc “is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites.”
Roberts Court Tortures Law to Save Obamacare…Again!
THE FIX WAS IN AND OBAMA KNEW IT THE WHOLE TIME.
JOHN ROBERTS IS AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE.
On Thursday, the Supreme Court released its long-awaited decision on Obamacare’s IRS subsidies under federal health insurance exchanges. And, as expected, the Court rewrote the statute to help President Obama’s signature law.
With each passing day of Supreme Court decisions, conservative principles begin to feel more and more like the survivors of the Scream films: it’s only a matter of time before you are next for the knife.
But no matter: the law is whatever President Obama says it is, not those funny little words written down on those reams of paper nobody read before voting. Chief Justice Roberts, who has turned out to be yet another in a line of historically disastrous Republican Supreme Court picks (join your place in the pantheon, Justice Roberts, alongside Sandra Day O’Connor, David Souter, Anthony Kennedy, John Paul Stevens, and Earl Warren, for starters), saved Obamacare the first time by magically transforming a mandate to buy healthcare into a tax. Now he, along with Kennedy, have saved Obamacare a second time by rewriting it a second time. It must be convenient to be the President of the United States when you have a cheerleading Supreme Court on your hands willing to act as a superlegislature to clean up all the political mistakes you make.
The vote in favor of rewriting Obamacare to save it went 6-3. Purposeful textual misinterpretation isn’t even controversial at the Court at this point.
Democrats Fundraise Off SCOTUS Obamacare Ruling Less Than One Hour After Decision Announced…
Was Supreme Court Justice John Roberts Blackmailed?
It’s time to start asking the question. It’s time to be cynical. It’s time to assume the worst of this government.
Has Supreme Court Justice John Roberts been blackmailed or intimidated?
I would put nothing by the Obama administration that lives and rules by the Chicago thug playbook.
Doubt me? On the same day that Justice Roberts and the Supremes upheld Obamacare – again – the key IRS watchdog reported to Congress that the IRS purposely destroyed evidence of a crime.
Republicans are being blackmailed, intimidated, extorted and bribed.

Fox Airs New Gruber Video: Voters ‘Too Stupid to Understand the Difference’ [3:43]
- Nov 2014: FOX News’ Megyn Kelly reports on the Gruber videos. Note how in the second Gruber video he is wearing a microphone. So much for his “off the cuff remark” spin.
- “This bill was written explicitly so CBO would not score the mandate as taxes.” Yet when the bill landed at the Supreme Court, the Democrats were suddenly very much on board with, “Yes, it’s a tax.” Because if it wasn’t a tax, then Congress had no right to pass it!
- “Credible, unbiased sources” … NOT! The administration paid Gruber $400,000 to pimp the bill. Obama used Gruber’s fakey language to “prove” the 2013 Lie of the Year that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”
3 Jonathan Gruber Videos: Americans “Too Stupid to Understand” [2:08]
- “Clever exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter.” Note again that two of these three show him speaking while walking around in front of chalk boards with microphones. The backgrounds are similar, but his ties and microphones are different, so it’s clearly two separate presentations.
2014: Pelosi denies knowing who Jonathan Gruber is [2:04]
- “His comments are a year old.” So WHAT?! He was talking about what he had done FIVE years before.
- “9.5 million people will have health insurance who didn’t before.” This ignores
- the FACT that 5+ million taxpaying American citizens who LOST policies they liked and wanted to keep and/or have had huge hikes in premium and deductibles.
- the FACT that a huge percentage of these new enrollees are not taxpayers, are not paying premiums and/or are not even in the US legally,
- the FACT that many uninsured Americans (like my husband) still cannot afford a policy, but now are being FINED for not having one!
- TRY sneaking into Canada or Mexico and demanding they provide you with free health care. Go ahead, Nancy. Try it. I dare you.
2009: Pelosi tells Americans to read Gruber’s ObamaCare analysis [2:04]
- So much for “I don’t know who he is” (at 1:00) …
Jonathan Gruber was used by the Democrats to pimp the bill; what was not revealed was that the man was being PAID by the WH to do so! Democrats knew the bill was horrible; that’s why they had to LIE and CHEAT to get it passed. That’s why Nancy Pelosi once said we had to PASS the bill so we could “find out what’s in it” [:53]
- Remember when Obama promised ALL legislation would be online before Congress voted, so Americans could read it and tell their representatives what they thought about it? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
February 18, 2011: For a real life peek at just how arrogant Leftists are, watch Chairman Mark Larson (D-Burlington) read a letter from a Vermont constituent concerned about a single-payer system and the mockery of that ensues. (Keep in mind that every single thing this constituent cited has been proven again and again wherever single-payer has been tried.) Gruber snarks about the list of concerns: “Was this written by my adolescent children by any chance?” More laughter.

Project Veritas: Mark Udall Advocates Condone Voter Fraud
The following is from John Fund, co-author of Who’s Counting? How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk.
“Secretary of State Gessler had futile arguments with Democratic state legislators last year who insisted on ramming a bill through that mandated Colorado become the only state in the nation with both all-mail balloting and same-day registration. Under same-day registration someone can register to vote online, have a mail ballot sent to them, and never physically show up to register or vote. Other places that use same-day registration treat the vote as a provisional ballot pending verification. Colorado immediately counts the vote and there is no way to separate it out if the person who votes is later found ineligible.”
“Last December, New York City’s Department of Investigation detailed how its undercover agents claimed at 63 polling places to be individuals who were in fact dead, had moved out of town, or who were in jail. In 61 instances, or 97 percent of the time, they were allowed to vote. (To avoid skewing results, they voted only for nonexistent write-in candidates.) How did the city’s Board of Elections respond? Did it immediately probe and reform their sloppy procedures? Not at all. It instead demanded that the investigators be prosecuted.”
“In 2008, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of voter-ID laws in a 6–3 opinion written by John Paul Stevens, then the most liberal member of the court. He noted that the record ‘demonstrates that not only is the risk of voter fraud real but that it could affect the outcome of a close election’. Stevens had witnessed the Daley machine up close manipulate local elections through fraud and chicanery during a distinguished legal career in Chicago that included serving both as a special counsel to a commission rooting out corruption and as a judge.”
