“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. They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps…. 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 the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves.”  —Thomas Jefferson

We are now into months of the latest round rioting, looting and burning courtesy of the Bolshevik Lies Movement aka Black Lives Matter and fascist anarchists known as ANTIFA.

The lives of millions of Americas continue to be destroyed financially as well as their health both mental and physical, by the continuing mandatory restrictions placed on them by tyrant governors, mayors, school boards and teachers unions over this latest coronavirus strain.

In the movie, The Patriot with Mel Gibson, his character asks a question before a vote on whether or not to take on the British:  Would you rather have one tyrant 3,000 miles away or 3,000 tyrants one mile away?

And so, it is today.

For decades I’ve railed against rancid decisions by federal judges and the U.S. Supreme Court – along with about a million other Americans keeping a watchful eye.  Example:

PLYLER v. DOE, 457 U.S. 202 (1982) – 457 U.S. 202 – Argued December 1, 1981; Decided June 15, 1982. Held:

“A Texas statute which withholds from local school districts any state funds for the education of children who were not “legally admitted” into the United States, and which authorizes local school districts to deny enrollment to such children, violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Pp. 210-230.

“(a) The illegal aliens who are plaintiffs in these cases challenging the statute may claim the benefit of the Equal Protection Clause, which provides that no State shall “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Whatever his status under the immigration laws, an alien is a “person” in any ordinary sense of that term. This Court’s prior cases recognizing that illegal aliens are “persons” protected by the Due Process Clauses of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which Clauses do not include the phrase “within its jurisdiction,” cannot be distinguished on the asserted ground that persons who have entered the country illegally are not “within the jurisdiction” of a State even if they are present within its boundaries and subject to its laws.

“Nor do the logic and history of the Fourteenth Amendment support such a construction. Instead, use of the phrase “within its jurisdiction” confirms the understanding that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protection extends to anyone, citizen or stranger, who is subject to the laws of a State, and reaches into every corner of a State’s territory. Pp. 210-216……

“The court held that “the absolute deprivation of education should trigger strict judicial scrutiny, particularly when the absolute deprivation is the result of complete inability to pay for the desired benefit.” Id., at 582. The court determined that the State’s concern for fiscal integrity was not a compelling state interest, id., at 582-583; that exclusion of these children had not been shown to be necessary to improve education within the State, id., at 583; and that the educational needs of the children statutorily excluded were not different from the needs of children not excluded, ibid.” (Bold emphasis mine.)

In other words, too bad for the states of the Union and the taxpayers. Illegal aliens cannot be deprived of an education paid for by stealing from the taxpayers! Illegal alien students who have no legal right to be on U.S. soil. Here in Texas there are more than 400,000 ILLEGAL alien minors in grades K-12 costing we Texans nearly $4 BILLION dollars a year.

The court goes on to say that illegal alien students didn’t have any control over their parents smuggling them into this country, so they are entitled to special consideration under the 14th Amendment. What rot. Special consideration?  An amendment says what it says but those justices decided it’s okay to make “special considerations”.

In 1982, 4 justices on that court were appointed by Nixon, one by Eisenhower, one by LBJ, one by JFK and two by Reagan.

When that decision was made, Congress had already passed endless immigration laws. Anyone who enters this country without going through the proper channels is here illegally. They are not “persons” invited into the U.S., they smuggle themselves across the border.

Were any of those justices who voted against We the People and for illegals impeached?  Of course not.  I can remember quite well back in the 1990’s members of Congress like J.D. Hayworth who would appear on FOX belly aching about partisan judges but donate and get me reelected!

They were as gutless then as Republicans are today always worrying about what MSM pimps will say about them or how their vote on a specific bill might endanger their chances of reelection.

“At the establishment of our constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government. Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office; that their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded by the public at large; that these decisions, nevertheless, become law by precedent, sapping, by little and little, the foundations of the constitution, and working its change by construction, before any one has perceived that the invisible and helpless worm has been busily employed in consuming its substance. 

“In truth, man is not made to be trusted for life, if secured against all inability to account.”  —Thomas Jefferson in a Letter to Monsieur A. Coray, October 31, 1823

Jefferson was right about no man is made to be trusted for life in regards to federal judges and the U.S. Supreme Court.  Back in 2004, Dr. Edwin Vieira wrote another one of his brilliant books, How to Dethrone the Imperial 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 law.

“What is worse, liberal and conservative lawmakers have been reinforcing such behavior by treating such rulings as if they are legitimate…In this brilliant, accessible, and documented work, Dr. Edwin Vieira offers us the best researched and clearest overview to date of the power of the people to control a runaway judiciary.”

Notice it says “…the power of THE PEOPLE to control a runaway judiciary.”

For it must be We the People as Congress – regardless of which party is in power over OUR lives – they have refused to do their constitutional duty by impeaching judges who make egregious decisions.  Edwin’s book should be mandatory reading for all junior or senior high school students.  Mandatory as well as my personal favorite book:  Samuel Adams: Father of the American Revolution

People complain all the time about how Trump has “failed” regarding building the wall on our southern border yet how many of them know the many times federal judges have slapped him down making it damn near impossible to get anything done?

Complaining and doing something about it are two different things. In my column last week on DOJ refusing to indict and prosecute elected public officials, I included my letter to AG William Barr asking readers do as I did.  I received two emails from individuals who basically said it’s a waste of time because it hasn’t worked in the past.

Well, if only 15 or 27 people sent a letter one would be right.  But as I said in my column if Barr’s desk gets buried under one million letters it changes the ball game.  He who yells the loudest gets heard.  Edwin wrote a column about this back in 2013: Defeatism Insures Defeat.  I highly recommend everyone read it because Edwin is spot on:  “The question then arises: “For what are WE THE PEOPLE waiting? Until it is too late to do anything effective? Be forewarned. That day will dawn only too soon.”

Do you know only eight federal judges have been impeached and thrown off the bench in the entire history of this country?  Eight, yet look at the destruction reigned down upon We the People by federal judges and the U.S. Supreme Court, i.e., Roe v. Wade and “marriage” between sexual deviants.

“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 to-day and a little to-morrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped from the States, and the government of all be consolidated into one.”  —Thomas Jefferson in a Letter to Charles Hammond, August 18, 1821

In July of this year President Trump signed an Executive Order to stop illegal aliens from being counted in the census.
