When has our Republican Party Leadership in Congress ___ the self-proclaimed defenders of “law and order” ___ called for the impeachment and punishment of judges and Justices who have repeatedly and knowingly violated the fundamental rules of constitutional construction, defied the text of our Constitution and its documented legislative intent which gives context to its text, and in so doing repeatedly spat upon adhering to the “rules of the common law” requiring an adherence to legislative intent?
While Republican leaders wine and dine our ears to their supposed desire for law and order, they continue to assume the fetal position when our Constitution, the supreme law of our land, is set aside, perverted, and overruled, by the very judicial Officers entrusted to support and defend it. Unfortunately, this has been going on for a very long time, but today, the perversions of our Constitution by judges and Justices are more profound, their usurpation of legislative power is more stark and blatant, and an air of omnipotence by judges and Justices reveals they have no fear whatsoever of reprisal for the mischief and tyranny they have engaged in.
The sad truth is, we were amply warned a long time ago about submitting to tyranny:
”Submit to despotism for an hour and you concede the principle. John Adams said, in 1775, “Nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud.” It is the only thing a people determined to be free can do. Republics have often failed, and have been succeeded by the most revolting despotisms; and always it was the voice of timidity, cowardice, or false leaders counseling submission, that led to the final downfall of freedom. It was the cowardice and treachery of the Senate of Rome that allowed the usurper to gain power, inch by inch, to overthrow the Republic. The history of the downfall of Republics is the same in all ages. The first inch that is yielded to despotism - the first blow, dealt at the Constitution, that is not resisted - is the beginning of the end of the nations ruin.” ___ THE OLD GUARD, A MONTHLY JOURNAL DEVOTED TO THE PRINCIPLES OF 1776 AND 1787.
So, in view of the recent Gorsuch opinion, Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, under what delegation of power found in our Constitution did Congress get the authority in 1964, “to enforce, by appropriate legislation,” [The Civil Rights Act of 1964], the forbidding of distinctions in the workplace within “any State on account of sex”, when the people refused to grant such power to Congress and our Constitution is silent in this respect?
Was Madison not correct when he wrote ___ ”The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands [our Supreme Court] . . . may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” ___ Madison, Federalist Paper No. 47
Or in today’s opinion, with Justice Roberts being the culprit, where is our Supreme Court vested with power to second guess the wisdom or fairness of legislation having to do with abortions? And, especially, how is that regulatory authority vested in our federal government when Hamilton emphatically confirms such power rests with the various United States. He says:
The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected.
The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State. ___ Federalist Paper No. 45
“The public welfare demands that constitutional cases must be decided according to the terms of the Constitution itself, and not according to judges’ views of fairness, reasonableness, or justice.” – Justice Hugo L. Black ( U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1886 - 1971) ___ Source: Lecture, Columbia University, 1968
