In a nine-word ruling Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to rescue Barack Obama’s mass amnesty program, which would have given residency and other rights to millions of illegal aliens now in the United States.
Michelle Malkin: The Lowdown on SCOTUS
A divided court, 4-4, declared: “The judgment is affirmed by an equally divided court.”
The tie vote effectively upheld a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in favor of the states in a lawsuit against Obama’s plan, which he directed through a series of orders from his administrative agencies.
Texas and 25 other states sued to halt the plan from taking effect, and a federal district judge in Texas ruled the White House could not implement its program.
In February 2015, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen granted a temporary injunction halting Obama’s unilateral action to allow as many as 5 million illegal aliens stay in the U.S. The administration acted apart from Congress, even though Obama had acknowledged he is “not king” and “can’t do these things just by myself.”
Obama said Thursday he was disappointed the court was “unable to reach a decision” and said he looked forward to the confirmation of a ninth justice “to break the tie” in the case. He blasted Republicans for refusing to consider his Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, saying they have refused to do their “most basic of jobs” under the Constitution, which actually gives Congress latitude regarding the confirmation process.

In typical Obama fashion, the “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone” president, lamented on the refusal of senate members to confirm his replacement pick for SCOTUS since Justice Scalia’s death. Impervious to reality, the Marxist champion continued his relentless attack on American sovereignty, oblivious to actuality displayed in his own words, in the above video.
Not to be outdone, Hillary Clinton, who is under FBI investigation for storing classified Top Secret information on her unsecured home server, – that was repeatedly hacked by foreign governments – weighed in on Thursday’s SCOTUS ruling.

U.S. college administrations also use wordsmithing to restrict or abolish undesirable voices deemed imprudent to the incommodious social justice agenda.
Administrators at college campuses routinely use speech codes to launch investigations into campus newspapers, prohibit religious symbols, and silence support for political candidates. Instead of fostering a marketplace of ideas at the university, faculty and students often push to disinvite controversial speakers and entertainers.
President Obama has a long and documented history of habitually violating The Constitution he incidentally swore to uphold … this video mentions just a few.
College administrators have used speech codes to prohibit biased speech, disrespectful speech, and “inappropriately directed laughter,” and to restrict all questionable speech to “free speech zones.” The University of California System has decided that statements like “America is a melting pot” or “America is the land of opportunity” are examples of microaggressions and should not be said on campus.
This video illustrates our Founding Fathers deciding what speech should and should not be allowed in America using the same logic administrators use when writing campus speech codes.
