During tonight's State of the Union address, Justice Samuel Alito was caught on camera mouthing some interesting words to President Barack Hussein Obama.
The President had just made a statement about the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding campaign finance.
"And it's time to put strict limits on the contributions that lobbyists give to candidates for federal office," Obama said. "Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests - including foreign corporations - to spend without limit in our elections."
Toward the end of that statement, Justice Alito was seen shaking his head, and rather clearly worded "Not true." Here's the video clip:
Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Schumer, an admitted Progressive and staunch supporter of Obama who has voice strong dissent against the Court's ruling in affirmation of the First Amendment, jumped up quickly and cheered rather aggressively.
This moment is one of the most destructive of all moments America has experienced since Barack Hussein Obama was sworn in as Chief Executive last year.
Obama is exactly that; Chief Executive. Our government is comprised of three branches; the Executive (President), the Legislative (Congress) and the Judiciary (Supreme Court).
These three branches of government were created so that each would have it's own role, and that the separation of power between the three should not be absolute, but should make allowances for a built-in system of checks and balances.
This wonder of American government was on full display last week, as the Judiciary overturned law, including portions of the The McCain-Feingold Act, based on the fact that the law was in direct violation of The First Amendment right to free speech.
When Obama made the aforementioned statements, he essentially was playing political bully with the Supreme Court. His words were nothing short of an indictment of the American governmental process as designed by our Founders.
This lack of respect of our system is not unusual for Obama, who has previously made statements about the Constitution, stating that it is a "charter of negative liberties," and saying that it reflects the "fundamental flaw" of this country that continues to this day.
This man clearly does not understand that The Constitution is the law of the land, and that the very reason the Supreme Court acted as it did was due to the need for checks and balances within the system. Law had been written that violated The First Amendment, and it is the responsibility of the Supreme Court to preserve all rights as defined by The Constitution. The Court acted exactly as it should, and Obama was reckless in his statement this evening.
By making the statement that he made tonight, Obama essentially stated that he wishes to disregard the Judiciary ruling, bypass or act on behalf of the Legislative, and therefore bring all American governmental power to the Executive branch.
This is a very dangerous statement, one which I believe Obama must be held accountable. I hope that anyone with any contacts to major press organizations escalates this issue to the point that the President must answer questions about the exact meaning of his words.
