President Obama has waded into the legal battle surrounding his landmark health care law with a stern warning to the Supreme Court not to overturn it. Specifically, Obama argues that the Supreme Court deciding in such a way would be an “unprecedented” example of “judicial activism” undertaken by “unelected” judges. (The Blaze)
Obamaspeak—where “judicial activism” means any ruling that thwarts the latest unconstitutional Progressive usurpation, any crippling new tax is an “investment”, and communism is merely “paying your ‘fair share.'”
They don’t ban much of anything in Boston these days—or anywhere else in the Obama Nation, for that matter—unless, of course, it’s conservative, as our friend Maggie at Maggie’s Notebook recently discovered:
Yesterday I was notified that this blog, Maggie’s Notebook, is banned in Afghanistan on the computers soldiers use for “recreation.” As anyone reading here knows, I am an unwavering supporter of our Troops. I have been very critical of Military leadership, from the perspective of a citizen sitting out here in the ether. I have been critical of Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta for baldly telling Congress he and the President will deploy U.S. Troops when they choose to do so, without Congressional oversight. I have criticized the Military handling of Nidal Hassan, the Ft. Hood shooter, and I, along with many others, am dismayed at our leader’s refusals to acknowledge Islamic jihad. I have told Sgt. Gary Stein’s story, and the stories of other Military, who say they will refuse to follow an unconstitutional order from the White House. I have recently advocated for bringing the troops home, because they are not allowed to fight a war, and I have been overtly suspicious of Afghan security forces. For this, I assume, I have been banned.
UPDATE 4-1-12: I wish this was an April Fools prank, but it’s not. I have some further information. My site has been blocked at the MWR (Morale Welfare Recreation). I believe our soldiers have Internet Cafes, in this instance known as MWR on the SPAWAR networks. I’m banned there which means no soldier can visit here.
