Congress Must Take Illegal Legislative Power Away From The Courts

‘THE BOTTOM LINE’
Are you worried about the federal courts gaining even more power if Hillary Clinton is elected president? Well you should be…But the courts are already out of control, they have already established their Fabian Communist power base leading American into a judicial autocracy.
Many conservatives believe all they need to do is elect a Republican president who will appoint constitutionally conservative judges to the federal courts, but we have done that already and yet, here we are. In addition it would take so many consecutive years of Republican presidents hitting the mark on their judicial appointments to finally turn the courts back around to a Constitutional Republic. Moreover the constitutionality of the courts shouldn’t rely on its judges they should be held within the boundaries of the law.
Besides, by that point, it will be too late. The courts have been moving quickly toward a power base in recent years: they have mandated states fund Planned Parenthood, mandated Socialized Medicine, mangled state religious liberty laws, made transgender people a special protected class, forced states to give birth certificates to illegal aliens and tossed out basic voter integrity laws, just to name a few unconstitutional overreaching orders that have come out of the despotic courts.
A reminder of what the opinion of the very first Chief Justice John Jay was regarding Constitutional law. “No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this would be to affirm that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves.” You will notice Justice Jay said “No legislative act…,” Because in those days only elected legislators made law, not the courts. And any act contrary to the constitution cannot be valid. Court rulings can only stand in a specific individual case not as a blanket law for the country.
What we need is a Congress with a back bone who will return this country back to the Constitutional Republic it was meant to be. By now most people don’t even realize that courts are in fact, illegally making laws. The truth is that legally courts can’t make law any more than I can. That would be, and in fact is, tyranny!
The late Justice Antonin Scalia was correct when he predicted “the theory of a living Constitution would destroy the country and the federal courts.” When judges usurp power that doesn’t belong to them and they believe in a so-called fluid or “living Constitution,” it creates a toxic mixture of tyranny and oppression.
It would be different if they had that power and they, in good faith, attempted to interpret the Constitution as originally adopted. But they haven’t… it’s worse than that. We’ve given them the power of the ‘sole and final arbiter’, but at the same time, they believe the Constitution is unconstitutional. What is there, is ignored, what’s not there is arbitrarily put in, as if they are dictators.
For example the practice of early voting was not widespread until recently, yet the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals just overturned North Carolina’s attempt to shorten the early voting period, claiming the state intended to discriminate against racial minorities. The court also tossed out North Carolina’s voter ID law and laws limiting same-day registration, out-of-precinct voting and preregistration. The courts are dictating to the states which is legally and totally up to the states. The ‘Congress’ needs to step in and say enough of judicial tyranny.
So not only are the courts becoming the sole and final arbiter of most important policy questions, thereby rendering elections nearly unnecessary, but they are preventing Republicans from winning elections by forcing states to adopt election laws that naturally favor Social Democrats.
Even King George didn’t have this kind of power in the Colonies – I mean, he didn’t get’ involved in the methods and procedures of elections for the colonial legislatures at all’. They were fighting taxation without representation; we’re fighting complete basic social and cultural transformation without representation. It’s the foundation of our Republic.
The circuit court’s rulings on North Carolina’s election laws are representative of a larger problem – federal courts are crushing the states, essentially forbidding them from governing themselves.
A little History: So how did this happen? It actually began almost immediately after the ratification of the original constitution, but by 1913 there was enough infiltration of the left wing tyrants in our government to pass three anti-constitutional and un-American bills to put the U.S. on a path to socialism and autocracy. These were the 16th, 17th Amendments and the Jekyll Island Federal Reserve System. But the 17th Amendment is the one that ended our Republic and took all the representation away from the state legislators, leaving the states helpless to have any influence in the Senate as the framers intended. The people’s representation is still in the House. The Senate now represents no one but themselves.
We don’t need another constitutional amendment we need to abolish the 17 Amendment but at some point the states have got to just say ‘No! Politically, we have 32 governors, we control the trifecta of governance, two branches of the legislature and a governor, in 24 states. We have the potential to grow from there. But we don’t benefit from it because the despotic feds are crushing us and our Congress won’t do their job.
The state legislatures have become a joke, with Communist special interest groups able to vault over their heads with help from the federal courts.
We need to return state legislatures to the power they had at the founding, the power they were supposed to have, and it at least starts with getting the unelected branch of the federal government out of our hair. It’s time to tell the judiciary to go suck an egg with their despotic rulings.
The answer already lies in the Constitution – Article III, Section 2 to be exact. That section allows Congress to restrict the jurisdiction of the federal courts to what is written in the constitution as it says in the 10th Amendment. So rather than a Republican president or a constitutional amendment, a congressional statute is all that is necessary to put the brakes on this runaway judicial tyranny.
I’m not saying we don’t need a Republican president, I’m not saying it’s not important to appoint better judges, but we don’t need a Republican president to merely appoint better judges. We need a Republican president to sign legislation putting the courts back in their place of the third part of the administration not the dictator.
THE BOTTOM LINE: We don’t have to sit and take this judicial tyranny anymore. This is ‘our’ country, this is ‘our’ Constitution; they have no right to change it, no right to make law, we need to go back to our roots, our principles. Let’s take back our country from the unelected criminal judges. The balance of power that the framers wrote into the constitution is being ignored. Moreover it is a result of a hundred years of government socialist expansion and the loss of the Republic since 1913.
Contact your representative Here: And tell them to write and pass legislation that will reign in Judicial power to where it belongs according to Article III section 2 of the U.S. Constitution. And then rewrite and abolish that part of the 17th amendment that took away the ability of the State Legislators to appoint U.S. Senators to represent the individual states.
