How the Media Convinced Justice Roberts to be 2012’s Kathleen Parker

By John Nolte | June 29, 2012 | Breitbart News

We all saw how the media reacted yesterday. Overnight, Chief Justice John Roberts went from a pariah to, literally in the eyes of the media, one of the great justices in the history of the Court. We also saw how the media suddenly found the dreaded 5-4 Supreme Court  decision perfectly acceptable. Do not make the mistake of thinking that what you witnessed yesterday was some sort of bias or double standard. It wasn’t. It was a payoff to a tactic the media’s been using for years to co-opt narcissistic Republicans desperate for affirmation.

Explaining what happened yesterday is going to require the laying of some pipe, so please bear with me.

A number of conservatives who I respect and admire and who are admittedly smarter than I am (low bar) have found a way to defend Chief Justice John Roberts’ decision to side with the liberal wing of the court and uphold ObamaCare. They wonder if Roberts wasn’t playing some four-level game of chess that managed to both limit the Commerce Clause and, by outing the mandate for what it really is, a massive tax increase and redistribution of wealth, ensure Barack Obama’s defeat in November.

Granted, with the largest tax increase in history now on the November ballot, if the Romney people play it right, Obama losing his job might very well be the result. But what Roberts really did was to abuse his power in a way that sets two precedents all freedom-loving people should find literally terrifying.

First, he told Congress that it may now tax us for standing still, for doing absolutely nothing. We can now be taxed simply for being born. Second, Roberts rewrote the ObamaCare legislation from the bench — literally. He turned what Congress described in its law as a mandate into a tax as a way around the Commerce Clause. The Supreme Court is all about tradition and precedent. To save ObamaCare, Roberts rewrote it, and you can bet that we will now see this kind of appalling behavior again.

Moreover, no one, not even among the jubilant left, is able to cite a legal defense of Roberts’ decision. The best they can summon is that Roberts was motivated by his desire to protect the integrity of the Court, that he didn’t want another high-profile 5-4 decision along ideological lines. Well, nowhere in the Constitution does is say that the opinion of the editorial writers at the New York Times and Washington Post trumps the Constitution and individual liberty.

Yesterday, Chief Justice John Roberts sold out the Constitution, his ideology, his word, his country, and his sacred duty.

And today he is the Kathleen Parker of 2012.
