Judicial Myth: The Supreme Court Is The Final Arbiter, They can Create Law, And Only They Can Determine Constitutionality

A judiciary, left unchecked and unaccountable, will always expand, broaden, or increase its jurisdiction. This is a natural occurrence of power, and therefore it must be constantly controlled, like a fire.

This is the final part of a four part series regarding myths about our judicial branch. Here are the links to the previous posts:

Part 1 – Myth: The Judicial Branch Is Equal To The Other Two Government Branches
Part 2 – Myth: Federal Judges Are Guaranteed A Lifetime Appointment
Part 3 – Myth: The Judiciary’s Role Is To Protect The Minority From The Majority

We have allowed the judiciary to elevate themselves above the executive branch, above the legislative branch, above The Constitution, and for some, even above God. Even though the judiciary has no constitutional authority to do so, they create law, an enumerated power that is only given to congress. We also allow the judiciary to execute law, which is an enumerated power only given to the executive. We also look to the supreme court as the ultimate Continue reading “Judicial Myth: The Supreme Court Is The Final Arbiter, They can Create Law, And Only They Can Determine Constitutionality”

Judicial Myth: The Judiciary’s Role Is To Protect The Minority From The Majority

The Bill of Rights, which clearly and distinctly lays out some of the rights we have from nature and from nature’s God, is for every individual.

This is part three of a four part series. Here are the links for the previous posts:

Part 1 – Myth: The Judicial Branch Is Equal To The Other Two Government Branches
Part 2 – Myth: Federal Judges Are Guaranteed A Lifetime Appointment

As in previous writings, I have made it clear that I believe the judicial branch as a whole is currently tyrannical, power-hungry, and anti-constitutional. In law school, instead of The Constitution and other founding documents being taught, it is case law and the opinions of jurists, who have stolen power from the legislative and executive, which are being taught. This has resulted in our judicial system being riddled with arrogant high-priests of the law who are re-forming our constitutional republic into an Continue reading “Judicial Myth: The Judiciary’s Role Is To Protect The Minority From The Majority”

Judicial Myth: Federal Judges Are Guaranteed a Lifetime Appointment (and a word about impeachment)

Impeachment is not a criminal trial, it is a political trial. A crime does not have to have been committed.

This is part two of a four part series of articles concerning misinformation about the judicial branch of our federal government. The judiciary has become an arm of tyranny and has stolen legislative and executive authority. The founders feared and warned about this very thing occurring. These judges need to be reined in. And it is possible and plausible, and not unprecedented. This will, however, take a generation, if we educate ourselves on The Constitution and the true nature and role of the judiciary.

In part one, I tackled the myth that the three branches of the federal government (Legislative, Executive, and Judicial) are separate and equal. They are most definitely not equal. The Legislative branch is the most powerful, followed by the Executive, and, according to The Constitution, The Federalist Papers, and the Founders, the weakest branch is the Judiciary. Read the full post here. Continue reading “Judicial Myth: Federal Judges Are Guaranteed a Lifetime Appointment (and a word about impeachment)”

Judicial Myth: The Judiciary is Equal To The Other Two Branches

I do not have much respect for the current state of the judicial branch of our federal government. Although I respect some federal justices, and agree with some judiciary opinions, as a whole I do not trust the federal judicial system. More and more, they largely ignore original intent of our founders, ignore principles of individual liberty, ignore constitutional bounds, and ignore the will of the people. They are, as a whole, tyrannical in nature, and primarily use self-created power.

The judicial branch of today goes far beyond what the framers established. An abusive judiciary is one of the reasons we declared independence from the tyrant King George in 1776. Ask the typical citizen of today as to why we declared independence, their answer, if they answer at all, will likely be, “taxation without representation.” That response is true, but only to a point. The Declaration of Independence lists 27 reasons why. Taxation without representation is there in the list, but it is not in the top 5 reasons. It’s not even in the top 10. It is number Continue reading “Judicial Myth: The Judiciary is Equal To The Other Two Branches”

My Stance On Abortion Was Wrong, And The Judiciary Is An Arm Of Tyranny

whaleI’ve been pondering during my free time for the past weeks, ever since Justice Kennedy’s announcement of retirement from the supreme court. The clamor from the left has hit max, and it is largely focused on women’s reproductive rights. I’ve been listening and observing from those concerned about Trump’s pick to replace Kennedy. I paid attention before, and after, Trump announced whom he would like to fill the vacancy.

While listening, I never thought my stance on abortion would change, but it has. This change has been percolating for years, but I didn’t realize it until the Continue reading “My Stance On Abortion Was Wrong, And The Judiciary Is An Arm Of Tyranny”

Healing After Suicide, Darkness, And Trauma

A picture of a young man with his arms raised in triumph facing a penetrating sunrise If anyone reading this is going through a tragic loss of suicide of a loved one, or other similar traumas, I want you to know that there is hope.  There is hope for healing, and a hope of happiness.   It will take time, and it will take humility, and proactive actions.  There is hope.  There will be light once again.

I’ve never publicly written about my experience with suicide. I may have mentioned aspects of it here and there, but here it goes, mostly in its entirety. There are some aspects of this experience that I will never share, except with my wife, and The Lord.

I rarely discuss the topic of suicide. It brings way too many emotions to the surface, which makes Continue reading “Healing After Suicide, Darkness, And Trauma”

Common Sense And Empathy: Transgenders And The Military

mentalIt’s common sense. The military needs the best of the best. There is a plethora of conditions that bar entrance into the military. The long list of things that can disqualify a person is to ensure that we have able, fit, mentally stable, and willing people to serve. It’s like any other job: if you are not qualified, you don’t get hired.

After Donald Trump announced via Twitter that transgender people were going to be prohibited from joining the military, the small percentage of citizens who are pro-LGBT became Continue reading “Common Sense And Empathy: Transgenders And The Military”

The Cancellation Of Last Man Standing: Screw You, Middle-America!

I’ve seen every episode of Last Man Standing. Some multiple times. It is one of the few sitcoms that my wife and I can watch without feeling that our values are being assaulted. I’ve recommended it to several family members and friends. It’s fair to say that I’m a fan.

I was among the shocked when the Continue reading “The Cancellation Of Last Man Standing: Screw You, Middle-America!”

I Voted Third-Party And I Didn’t Waste My Vote, Please Don’t Disrespect It

I voted for Evan McMullin, and I didn’t throw my vote away.

Before you go off on me, please read onward. Most of your arguments will be discussed below. This is not written in the spirit of vindictiveness. If you are voting FOR Trump or FOR Hillary based on their principles and character, I respect you. I don’t necessarily understand how you Continue reading “I Voted Third-Party And I Didn’t Waste My Vote, Please Don’t Disrespect It”
