Rush Limbaugh - #3211 - VIDEO: Why the Left is Now Telling the Truth About Clarence Thomas - The Right Scoop (2) Rush Limbaugh - Additional Commentary (3) New Blue Nightmare: Clarence Thomas and the Amendment Doom - Walter Russell Mead (4) Partners. Will Clarence and Virginia Thomas Succeed in Killing Obama's Health-Care Plan? Jeffrey Toobin, The New Yorker

THE FOLLOWING COMMENTS WERE MADE ON RUSH'S RADIO SHOW YESTERDAY REGARDING JUSTICE CLARENCE THOMAS. PLEASE READ, VERY IMPORTANT, BEHIND THE SCENES ON THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF THE HEALTH CARE BILL AND RIGHT OF INDIVIDUALS TO BEAR ARMS.
Jeffery Toobin has written a piece in the New Yorker Magazine on Clarence Thomas that has caught Rush’s attention. Here’s the key quote: In several of the most important areas of constitutional law, Thomas has emerged as an intellectual leader of the Supreme Court. Since the arrival of Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., in 2005, and Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr., in 2006, the Court has moved to the right when it comes to the free-speech rights of corporations, the rights of gun owners, and, potentially, the powers of the federal government; in each of these areas, the majority has followed where Thomas has been leading for a decade or more. Rarely has a Supreme Court Justice enjoyed such broad or significant vindication. Rush says this has always been true about Thomas, but only now does the left recognize it. And it’s not because they have all of a sudden had an attack of conscience, but rather it’s because they want to protect something, and that something is ObamaCare: Watch video of Rush's remarks, please don't miss this, very profound.......

More of Rush's Commentary - The Walter Russell Mead review is fascinating because it basically says there are two amendments to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, that if you went to the right Ivy League schools were taught may as well not have even been there.  Number two and number ten.  Number two is basically right to bear arms. Before Clarence Thomas, the Second Amendment, everybody agreed. All it meant was that the states can have a militia. It didn't mean individuals were empowered the right to own guns. Now after 15, 20 years of Clarence Thomas, the left has given up the gun control fight. They don't even want to go there. Now the Tenth Amendment is next. Now, the Tenth Amendment, paraphrasing, basically says any power not specifically enumerated in the Constitution for the federal government goes to the states. Now, this is important, ladies and gentlemen, because the Commerce Clause in the Fourth Amendment has been the vehicle for the New Dealization of the US Constitution.  The Commerce Clause -- and the Commerce Clause, as you know, is the route to Obamacare, forcing people to buy health insurance. The Commerce Clause is where the federal government has grown. The Commerce Clause of the Constitution is where the federal government's grown. Now, the Clarence Thomas-and-others-led effort to take power away from the federal government and give it back to the states is amendment ten. Now, in all these Ivy League law schools and other colleges years ago, the Second Amendment, the Tenth Amendment, they were like an appendix. They were there, but they were not used. They were not necessary. Now the Tenth Amendment is being used and focused on as a way to dismantle much of federal power. Read all of Rush's commentary on the following two articles..........

New Blue Nightmare:  Clarence Thomas and the Amendment Doom - Walter Russell Mead - Jeffrey Toobin’s gripping, must-read profile of Clarence and Virginia Thomas in the New Yorker gives readers new insight into what Sauron must have felt: Toobin argues that the only Black man in public life that liberals could safely mock and despise may be on the point of bringing the Blue Empire down.  In fact, Toobin suggests, Clarence Thomas may be the Frodo Baggins of the right; his lonely and obscure struggle has led him to the point from which he may be able to overthrow the entire edifice of the modern progressive state.  Writes Toobin:  In several of the most important areas of constitutional law, Thomas has emerged as an intellectual leader of the Supreme Court. Since the arrival of Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., in 2005, and Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr., in 2006, the Court has moved to the right when it comes to the free-speech rights of corporations, the rights of gun owners, and, potentially, the powers of the federal government; in each of these areas, the majority has followed where Thomas has been leading for a decade or more. Rarely has a Supreme Court Justice enjoyed such broad or significant vindication.  Read entire article..........

Partners. Will Clarence and Virginia Thomas Succeed in Killing Obama's Health-Care Plan? - Jeffrey Toobin,  The New Yorker - ............These tempests obscure a larger truth about Thomas: that this year has also been, for him, a moment of triumph. In several of the most important areas of constitutional law, Thomas has emerged as an intellectual leader of the Supreme Court. Since the arrival of Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., in 2005, and Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr., in 2006, the Court has moved to the right when it comes to the free-speech rights of corporations, the rights of gun owners, and, potentially, the powers of the federal government; in each of these areas, the majority has followed where Thomas has been leading for a decade or more. Rarely has a Supreme Court Justice enjoyed such broad or significant vindication.  The conventional view of Thomas takes his lack of participation at oral argument as a kind of metaphor. The silent Justice is said to be an intellectual nonentity, a cipher for his similarly conservative colleague, Antonin Scalia.  Read more........
