Rumor: Supreme Court justice blackmailed into voting for Obamacare

Did Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts really vote for the controversial bill in order to save his family after being blackmailed?

UNCONFIRMED: Consider the 'source'

Glenn Beck has a secret that is going to TAKE DOWN THE WHOLE POWER STRUCTURE. Sorry, got a little carried away there.

The radio and TV host, who was too paranoid even for Fox, warned yesterday that he would soon reveal “things in American history that have never been witnessed before.”

So what's the big secret?

According to Before It's News, "sources" claim Beck will reveal that the President Barack Obama administration used hacked e-mails to blackmail Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts into casting the deciding vote for Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), more commonly known as Obamacare. Those e-mails apparently were so dangerous they threatened to tear Roberts' family apart. And in fairness to Beck, that would be a HUGE story. If it were true.

Of course, Beck has promised and then not delivered before. (Like, thousands of times, in fact.) Most recently, as the Examiner points out, when he said he had news about the Boston Marathon bombing that would prove it was a cover-up. Nothing came of it.

MSN News reached out to Beck's press person, Josh Raffel, to see if it could confirm the rumor. We haven't heard back yet. But we suppose we'll all know later today when Beck's show airs.
