President Obama attacked the Supreme Court, this week, over his health care bill. The nation’s highest court is deciding if a law, known as “Obama Care,” is constitutional. It would force all Americans to buy insurance under threat of fine or penalty. The President said that he hoped the court would not overturn the law. The President could not imagine the court would rule against him and opined, “And I’d just remind conservative commentators that for years what we’ve heard is, the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint — that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law.”
Hard to believe that President Obama, a Constitutional Law professor, doesn’t understand a little something called “Separation of Powers”? He does. I think the Supreme Court will rule the “Obama Care” law is unconstitutional this summer, and the President wants to set up another wedge issue for the fall election. In the Middle East, Iran stated it is sticking to its “nuclear path.” Super powers of the world meet with Iran, next week, in Turkey to try to avoid war. Israel has a new enemy and it is Egypt. A rocket was fired this week from the Sinai desert, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu now calls the area a “Terror Zone.”
In Syria, The Russians are warning the west not to arm the rebels there. Nearly 10,000 Syrians have been killed in the last year of civil war. South Carolina became the second state in the union to declare gold and silver to be money. Twelve more states are following in the footsteps of Utah and South Carolina in a move to allow gold and silver as a form of payment. Finally, I want to end with the comments made this week by billionaire Hugo Salinas-Price. He made his fortune in Mexican retail and said about the world’s financial system, “. . . this whole scheme of paper is unworkable, then the world is going to go down in flames. The only thing that would last will be people’s savings of gold and silver.” When billionaires start talking about the world going down in “flames” and touting gold and silver—look out!
