Not even an hour after President Bush signed the Partial Birth Abortion Ban of 2003, a
self-righteous federal judge in Nebraska sharply questioned the law's constitutionality
and issued a limited temporary restraining order against it. U.S. District Judge Richard
Kopf immediately blocked efforts of many years of work, reasoning, debating, and many
votes to come up with the law. There is overwhelming support for the legislation by
How could anyone support such an evil???
The people's efforts are negated by one proud scum bag.
It isn't even that the ban would save lives (see an explanation here). It is an immoral philosophy that
this elitist man, unworthy of a black coat, rams down our throats as if he has more brains
and power than the people and our choices of representative government, including the
president himself. What gives him the right? Does this even make sense?
The ink had not even dried on the President's signature. Yet the judge decided he
could teach us a lesson.
Col John Eidsmoe wrote: A further problem with judicial review is that many
judges no longer feel bound by the plain wording of the Constitution and the intent of
those who wrote it. The result, as Chancellor Kent (Chancellor James Kent,
whose name stands securely alongside the giants of the law. He was Chief Judge of
the Court of Appeals of the State of New Yorkthe state's highest court) once wrote,
is that judges feel free to "roam at
large in the trackless fields of their own imaginations." And if they are not bound
by the plain letter of the Constitution as intended by its Framers, their power is
In fact, William O. Douglas, one of the Court's most creative con men, had written Griswold
v. Connecticut. He wrote that "specific
guarantees in the Bill of Rights have penumbras, formed by emanations from those guarantees that . . . create zones of privacy."
This helped set a precedence of judges imagining what the law should be,
according to their own particular biases, and destroying the meaning of the original,
careful wording of the founding documents and legislation.
This is just one more example of a long stream of horrible abuses by the courts.
Prayer in schools. Prayer at football games. Abortion on demand. Taking
God out of our Pledge of Allegiance. The Ten Commandments monument. A judge
deciding that killing young children while they are being born must be protected.
Innumerable other examples of profound tyrrany by out of control judges who have no shame
and are above their oath to the Constitution.
HOW MUCH MORE MUST WE TAKE?
What would our founders do?
In the Declaration of Independence, when explaining the reason for
leaving English rule, it is emphasized that these rights are for the pursuit of God's
gifts of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness which had been violated. In
Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of
Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to
abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and
organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their
Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established
should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath
shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right
themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But
when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same
Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute
Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to
provide new Guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of
these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to
alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain
[George III] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct
object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
Folks, we are losing since we do not use tactics approved by God Himself. His
tactics? No compromise on His moral issues. Win, lose or draw, we please Him
when we take His direction regarding how we should live our lives. It isn't with
worthless legislation. It isn't by having a seat at the table. It is by
insisting on righting our own morals, beginning with ourselves, and to
stand against evil before God's judgment completely destroys us.
Judicial tyranny must be stopped.
First, we must insist that our Representatives, Senators, and President remove
judges like Judge Kopf for unethical, immoral behavior through impeachment. We must
remind our representatives that they must get rid of judges who take their own
Constitutional power, vested in them by the people, away when they reverse duly written
and enacted legislation. Jefferson, particularly, wrote on this.
Thomas Jefferson explained it in 1798, "Free
government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy and not
confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind down those whom we are obliged
to trust with power. ... In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence
in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."
Second, through legislation by a simple majority vote, the boundaries for the courts
can be established through Congress.
Article III, Section 2 says: " In all the other Cases before mentioned, the
supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such
Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress
Third, the Constitution sets up the judicial branch with provision for a single Supreme
Court of the United States, and simply allows the lesser federal
courts to exist at the behest of Congress, completely dependent on that body for their
existence, and potentially, disbandment.
Article III, Section 1 says: "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."
We must insist our congressment to be active in reeling in the courts or they will be
removed in the next election by someone who will.
Fourth, we have a great opportunity to make the right stand in the case of Chief
Justice Roy Moore. We should not allow him to be marginalized by the press and the
politicians as he has been fighting in our stead.
What about the Ten Commandments? It seems like a sideshow until you clearly look
at the significance of this struggle at the hands of a courageous Chief Justice Roy Moore
in the Alabama Supreme Court who has been marginalized by those who should be fighting
this battle with him. As Dr. Alan Keyes points
out, at the time the First Amendment
was written (the Establishment Clause), most states had their own "official"
state church. For many, it was the Church of England. In this light, it is
absolutely clear that the original intent of the First Amendment was to prohibit
the federal government from establishing a
specific "official" church. The federal government, including the federal
courts have no jurisdiction in the decisions the states may make
regarding religion. None. It was expressly prohibited and lately wrongly
interpreted as layers upon layers of case law pile up with incorrect conclusions.
Even the Tenth Amendment limits the
jurisdiction of the federal government by placing the power over things not expressed in
the Constitution into the hands of the states or to the people. Simply put, the Ten
Commandments monument violated no written law established through our representative
government. If you think it did, then, which law was Judge Moore violating?
Some claim that Moore has violated the "rule of law". The Constitution
and inferior laws have not been violated at all as seen above. People claim that he
has embraced civil disobedience to the federal judge's ruling. This is incorrect as
well. Again, he has violated no law. Civil disobedience is to a law, not to a
judge out of control who has himself violated his oath of office by ignoring and defying
the Constitution which he had promised to uphold, in his attempt to levy an illegal court
order. The decision to starve Terri Schindler-Sciavo in the name of humanity is also
an outrage. Here, again a federal judge is violating his oath of office,
specifically with defiance of the protection of "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of
Happiness" in the organic Declaration of Independence.
The Texas sodomy law at the Supreme Court level had justices justifiying the majority
opinion that struck it down based on European law.
Their allegiance is not to the Constitution which they swore to uphold, but to
'progressive' legal interpretations illegally based on law from other sources, such as
international laws. They must be removed. Again and again the oath of office
to the Constitution of the United States is ignored as these tyrants choose their own
agendas. Many more examples are mentioned below, a
short, not all-inclusive list.
In the case of Moore, he alone is upholding the Constitution of the State of Alabama
and of our United States. The Constitution allows no jurisdiction by the federal
courts in the Ten Commandments. It is as if a judge in Saudi Arabia told Moore that
he cannot have the Ten Commandments monument. The federal courts, except by stealing
power, unopposed by our representatives, have no say in the matter, without violating the
law themselves. They should be on trial for failure to keep their oath of office and
to be summarily impeached as a lesson to others of like mind. The founders wanted a
separation of powers but our Executive and Legislative branches have chosen to allow the
courts to trample on the Constitution and the people. Without an outcry by the
people, they will not act.
So, how much more are we going to take?
We should all encircle Chief Justice Moore, support his battle against these outrageous
rulings. He had the Constitutionally derived power, power given to him by the people
of Alabama in an election, to place the Ten Commandments in the courthouse. He broke
He is being railroaded by his opponents who understand that if and when he should win,
this case would cause a complete reinterpretation of all of the tyrannical church-state
rulings based on faulty interpretations piled on top of each other. Since the
Supreme Court has refused to take the case so far, members of that court also deserve
removal, even moreso because of the other reasons as above.
Republicans are entrenched with the faulty reasoning that nothing can be done against
the courts. This is wrong. They have the Constitutional powers as quoted
above. Their duty is to remove individuals who are trampling on the law as
legislated. Our representatives must also be held accountable. If impeachment
proceedings began against the worst offenders, others may get a sorely needed wake up
If not, our freedoms are history. We will get only those freedoms allowed to
us by judicial tyrants. This absolutely defies for what our founding fathers risked
their lives and property. Why won't we do our duty to say "enough" and
insist on some action now. Support Judge Moore. Get rid of elected politicians
who wimp out on something so important.
If we really want to know who is at fault here, it is us
for not holding these folks accountable. Yes, me first. It is long overdue and
time for a painful correction back to the Constitutional boundaries. We must.
If we wait, it becomes more painful.
Patrick Henry stated:
Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is
impossible that a nation of infidels or idolaters should be a nation of free-men. It is
when a people forget God, that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a
corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom.
A short list of outrageous judicial offenses begging for
removal of the offenders.
1. Abortion on demand.
2. Sworn oaths to uphold Constitution neglected to proudly embrace international
law. Supreme Court majority said that laws against sodomy have been rejected by the
European Court of Human Rights. Decisions based on other nation's
rulings to change our laws.
3. Partial Birth Abortion ban after years of effort, consideration, debate and
voting by our congressmen, received a restraining order within one hour of signing by
President Bush. At least 2 other judges joined within one day.
4. Chief Justice Roy Moore and the Ten Commandments monument .
5. Prayer in schools.
6. Take the words "under God" out of the Pledge of Allegiance.
7. Free speech means pornography but not preaching on the street..
8. Penumbra and Emanations.
9. Christmas manger scenes removed from public places.
10. Looming threat of homosexual marriage.
11. Enormous multi-million dollar judgments for which each of us ultimately pay.
12. Communications Decency Act ruled unconstitutional in June 1997.
13. Child Online Protection Act ruled unconstitutional in 1998 and has never been enacted
due to rulings up to March 6, 2003, against the law.
14. Universally popular Do not call list blocked.
15. Libraries may not filter out pornography.
16. Starve Terri Schindler-Sciavo in the name of humanity.
17. many others.
How many more will it take to wake us up? In Canada now it is illegal to
broadcast preaching on parts of the Bible that condemn homosexuality. Leave the
courts alone and this will soon follow. It is up to you. We must repent and perhaps
then we have a chance.
Our founders risked everything for freedom. What about us? You?
Is our Almighty God ready to correct us for our failures to stand for His values
against the surge of the tidal wave of evil? The people have chosen to accept these
evils, begging for judgment against us, ultimately by the righteous hand of God. If
we are silent, we are complicit. May God forgive us and have mercy upon us.
May He send the Spirit to awaken us.
We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of
government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions
upon the capacity of mankind for self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us
to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.
In 1819, Thomas Jefferson
The Constitution is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may
twist and shape into any form they please.
In 1804, Jefferson wrote:
Thomas Jefferson on April 21, 1803 wrote:
Nothing in the Constitution has given them [the federal judges] a right to decide for the
Executive, more than to the Executive to decide for them... But the opinion which gives to
the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional, and what not, not only for
themselves in their own sphere of action, but for the legislature and executive also, in
their spheres, would make the judiciary a despotic branch.
My views... are the result of a life of inquiry and reflection, and very different from
the anti-christian system imputed to me by those who know nothing of my opinions. To the
corruptions of Christianity I am, indeed, opposed; but not to the genuine precepts of
Jesus himself. I am a Christian in the only sense in which he wished any one to be;
sincerely attached to his doctrines in preference to all others...
September 28, 1820 Thomas Jefferson
You seem... to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional
questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the
despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so ... and
their power [is] the more dangerous, as they are in office for life and not responsible,
as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no
such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with corruptions of time
and party, its members would become despots.
In 1821, Jefferson wrote:
The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in...the federal judiciary; and
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
from the States.
Please see the exchange between Attorney General Bill
Pryor and Chief Justice Roy Moore during the Court of the Judiciary which found Judge
Moore violated "ethics" charges. Remember, Bill Pryor is one of the best
that President Bush has nominated for the federal bench and who spits on the Constitution.
Why would the Democrats oppose him?
One other case of judicial tyranny occurred today. "Court Strikes Down "gay"
marriage ban" from WorldNetDaily. How much more should we take?
