‘Supremely Political’ Update: Scalia Dismisses Roberts ObamaCare Intimidation Theory (VIDEO)

One of my favorite men in America (U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia) dropped in on yesterday’s Fox News Sunday broadcast to talk shop with host Chris Wallace.

At one point, Wallace asked Justice Scalia whether President Obama’s notorious pre-Obamacare decision threats had an effect on the Highest Court in the Land. Many have questioned (with good cause) whether Roberts’s decision was the product of pure political calculus… or external pressure of some kind?

Scalia was cheerfully dismissive (his signature response to questions he’d rather not probe). In his opinion, “what can he [Obama] do to me?”


Whether Scalia can speak for Chief Justice John Roberts’s mindset is unclear. Scalia does have unequaled knowledge of the Court’s inner-workings as its most senior member (President Reagan appointed him back in 1986). It buoys my personal thesis that Roberts is a “big boy” in the colloquial meaning and was therefore solely to blame for his alarmingly utilitarian Obamacare opinion.

Interestingly, on a separate note, Scalia conceded to Wallace that the Supremes will likely have to tackle more 2nd Amendment questions in the near future. The great gun question is always controversial but has renewed potency following this month’s tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. Scalia didn’t want to speculate considering the likelihood of potential cases; he did, however, express his view that the U.S. Constitution permits at least some regulation of private weapon ownership even in the wake of the recent Heller decision.

Justice Scalia is a textualist, Save Jerseyans; in the case of the 2nd Amendment, he takes the right to “bear” arms very literally, meaning anything an individual cannot literally “bear” (like a cannon or a tank) can be regulated by the government. On the other hand, Scalia told Wallace that the constitutional parameters of regulations on more high-powered weapons (like a shoulder-borne rocket launcher) remains to be decided.

  4. Before you buy your basketball shoes; measure your feet if it's been awhile since you bought shoes. Children tend to change shoe sizes frequently. Yet your shoe size can change even as an adult, when you may assume you've finished growing. Any store that sells basketball shoes will be able to offer exact measurements of your feet. There should not be any sense of a loose or insecure fit when you try your basketball shoes on. The proper fit of a shoe does not allow any sort of room for slippage.
