Do We Want to Stop Judicial Tyranny?

“The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped.”  —Thomas Jefferson in a letter to Charles Hammond, August 18, 1821

The herds of useful fools on what is called the left, but in reality, are disciples of Marxist ideology, continue screeching about the U.S. Supreme Court whenever those nine robes issue an opinion on a case they don’t like.  Stack the court! they bellow.

On the “right” are individuals who identify as conservatives but one has to wonder:  What exactly are they conserving by reelecting the same gutless cowards back to Congress who refuse to exercise their power to clean up our rotten, broken federal judiciary?

Like those on the left, conservatives also wail and fret when a federal judge or SCOTUS issues a decision contrary to what they want.  As we all know, elections have consequences and one of the biggest is a legally elected president’s nominations for federal judges and SCOTUS.

Right off the top as an example is the choice by usurper “president” Joe Biden (actually he just reads off a card what his controllers have composed) to put yet another partisan nitwit on the Supreme Court.  Ketanji Brown Jackson was also a Hussein Obama choice for federal courts.  During her confirmation hearings, Jackson was asked to define a woman.

Would seem like a simple enough question.  Her response while scratching the top of her head:  She can’t because she’s not a biologist.  No, I didn’t make that up.  I guess Ketanji Brown Jackson doesn’t know she’s a woman because she’s not a biologist.  Perfect for the Supreme Court and RINO senators who backed her:  Romney, Murkowski and Collins.

Biden, who doesn’t know what day it is, rejoiced after Jackson’s confirmation, “We’ve taken another step toward making our highest court reflect the diversity of America.”  Translated that means top qualifying factor was skin color, just like the female court jester, Kamala Ho Harris, playing VP.  Of course, the court’s decision to stop discrimination in colleges using race-based selection known as affirmative action caused Jackson to have a snit fit.  Diversity of America?  Pray tell what does that have to do with a case between two states over, say water rights, or two corporations with a case granted a Writ of Certiorari?

During all these nominations and hearings for federal judges and Supreme Court Justices we always hear the same refrain:  They’re appointed for life so we have to take back the Senate so when a justice retires, we can get “one of our own” on the court.  I’m so sick and tired of hearing that as if federal judges and those on the Supreme Court are some sort of Gods who cannot be held responsible for their actions.

How many Americans even know how many federal judges and supreme court justices have been impeached?  Up until 2019, a total of 66 federal judges and supreme court justices were investigated.  Since 1803, a grand total of 15 judges were impeached.  Mostly for lying (aka “making false statements”), showing favoritism and being drunk.  This is a list of impeachments; many were acquitted in the senate.

The one I remember so well was the impeachment and removal of Alcee L. Hastings, a Democrat, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.   “Impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives, August 3, 1988, on charges of perjury and conspiring to solicit a bribe; Convicted by the U.S. Senate and removed from office, October 20, 1989.”

But, wait!  In his big come back, Hastings won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1992.  Off to Congress he went.  Hastings kept getting reelected until he died in 2001.  Of course, he was a member of the House Black Caucus.  Yep, voters in his district just loved a judge removed from the bench for perjury and bribery charges.

But, then again, Democrats love to elect liars, cheats and morally bankrupt politicians.  Current senator Richard Blumenthal flat out lied about his military service record (Vietnam) and got caught when he was Attorney General for Connecticut.  Good old tricky Dickie apologized because he was running for the senate.  He was sorry – sorry he got caught.  But Blumenthal supports killing the unborn, the myth called ‘same sex marriage’, hates the Second Amendment, supports Hussein Obama’s unconstitutional ‘ObamaCare’ and is another eco-climate change fool.  Just what Democrat voters in Connecticut apparently want.

Day by day, case by case, the Supreme Court is busy designing a Constitution for a country I do not recognize.” Former Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Antonin Scalia.

Americans paying attention to what’s destroying our republic are fed up with the rot in our federal courts and clearly partisan Supreme Courts.  But what can be done, you ask?

Dr. Edwin Vieira wrote what I consider a must read:  How to DeThrone the Imperial Judiciary, published in 2004.  It’s a shame that book isn’t in every senior high school class dealing with government and mandatory for college freshmen.

Let’s start with the U.S. Constitution and this “appointed for life” narrative.  Art. 111, Section 1:

“The judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behaviour, and shall, at stated times, receive for their services, a compensation, which shall not be diminished during their continuance in office.”

Appointed for life as long as they are good boys and girls.  We must understand what that means and it is found in Edwin’s book, How to DeThrone the Federal Judiciary:

“The most important constitutional issues of this generation concern the meaning of the rule of law and the ability of the people to enforce true law by restraining runaway activist judges.  For decades, such judges have been simply making up the law.  What is worse, liberal and conservative lawmakers have been reinforcing such behavior by treating such rulings as if they are legitimate…Dr. Edwin Vieira offers us the best researched and clearest overview to date of the power of the people to control a runaway judiciary.”

Chapter 14 of the book is quite important:  Removal of Judges for Lack of “good Behavior” or by “Impeachment…and Conviction”

Now, we can continue down the same road to a dead-end or get educated on how to clean up our federal judiciary and make sure our U.S. Congress critters and our state legislators know their role.  They don’t here in Texas which I covered in my Jan. 23, 2023, column:  Two New State Nullification Bills – Will They Pass? (An important read.)

Those two bills (Texas) should have been the subject of talk radio and conservative organizations statewide:  House side:  HB 384 and on the Senate side by one of our best state senators, Bob Hall:  SB 313 – State Sovereignty, Tenth Amendment.

Oh, no.  Instead, lots of coverage about our RINO House Speaker, Dade Phelan, pushing to eliminate sales tax on tampons.  No, that’s not from an episode of Twilight Zone.  Phelan is and has always been in bed with the DemonRats in our legislature.  Both bills were referred to the State Affairs Committee (Republican Chairman on both senate and house on that committee) where they died.  A Republican controlled legislature let two critical bills die.

Apparently, Republicans on that committee don’t want Texas to exercise their Tenth Amendment rights using nullification to stop federal tyranny.  Our legislature went out of session at the end of May and don’t come back until Jan. 2025, although we’re now in the second special session called by Gov. Abbott over property taxes and a couple of other priority items.  In the meantime, because our legislature didn’t pass those bills, the illegitimate Biden “administration” will keep stomping Texans into the ground.

I hope you’ll get Edwin’s book, read it and get the word out to all the conservative organizations in “red” states.  If you can purchase a few copies (your organization can pool the cost) get one to your state rep, state senator and U.S. House member and Senator along with as many people signing a letter telling he or she this must become a top priority.

Solutions or just more talking?  Judicial tyranny or curing the problem?  If we do nothing, nothing gets done.  Just like Congress.
