Men(ace) in Black? SCOTUS goes Rogue...
various FR links & stories | 03-03-05 | the heavy equipment guy

Posted on 03/03/2005 3:35:05 AM PST by backhoe

 
Supreme Court's illegal ruling (on cap punishment) should TRIGGER THE NUCLEAR OPTION -- The problem is, SCOTUS is basically immune to public opinion. Which can be a good thing or a bad thing. We can protest at SCOTUS until we are blue in the face - but I doubt Sandra Day O'Connor would care.
Now, if governors told SCOTUS that their ruling was illegitimate and carried no influence on their state perogatives, now THAT would get the attention of SCOTUS.
 
 A MOVE TOWARD DEMOCRACY ... AND THAT'S A DANGEROUS MOVE
 
 The Supreme Court and Foreign Law
 
 Black robes and betrayal -- We need to hold these officials accountable through impeachment, recall, nullification, interposition and arrest where necessary.
 
 Constitution Killers
 
 High Court Ends Death Penalty for Youths
 
 The Blue State Court
 
 High court bans death row for minors
 
 CNN: US SUPREME COURT: ALL DEATH PENALTY CASES WITH JUVENILE KILLERS THROWN OUT! -- Two of the "children" released from death row by this ruling are the murderers and rapists Perez and Villareal who raped and murdered 15 year old Elizabeth Pena and 14 year old Jennifer Ertman in Texas about 12 years ago. They not only raped them but violated them in every orifice before beating them to death. Then they called the girls' parents and asked if they knew where their daughters were. Nice kids that SCOTUS has let off the hook.
 I googled the victims' names, and the accounts of the case turned my stomach.
 
 Justice Scalia’s Dissent [Juvenile Killers]
 
 Justice Kennedy's Death Penalty Opinion Cites "World Opinion" and International "Amicus" Briefs
 
 Rule of (International) Law: Can foreign courts tell American ones how to do their job?
 
 U.N. influence on court's juvenile execution ban
 
 Men in Black is a must-read (Rush Limbaugh) -- "Most recently, Levin writes, 5 current activist justices have announced that, when they see fit, they'll use foreign law and foreign court rulings as guideposts to making their decisions, a repudiation of the constitution's mandates and limitations, and rejection of popular sovereignty."
 
 
 Is it time for a March on the SCOTUS and the Judiciary and the Senate? ...this is becoming an issue of American Soverignty, and even those who may agree with the result should be concerned...
Exactly. Jonathan Turley, an HONEST liberal, who is a Constitutional scholar, said the same thing on Fox News tonight.
 
 Impeachment Of Supreme Court Justice(s)? -- Technically, a judge of any federal court can be impeached on whatever charge a simple majority of the House of Representatives will vote, and can be convicted and removed on whatever charge a 2/3 majority of the Senate will vote.
 
  Is it Time for a Revolution? (Vanity) -- As Jim Quinn (www.warroom.com) says, "The Second Amendment is the reset button on the Constitution."

Folks, we all need to write, and telephone, our (ahem!) Representatives in DC ( and maybe your state capitols, too ) and inform them that if they wish to stay employed, they need to rein in this rogue court. Quickly.

When the black robed set becomes more tyrannical at an ever increasing rate, and when it writes laws day after day, how much longer before vigilantism follows it down the road.

Someone should ask these people what the result is likely to be when we can no longer trust judges.

Andrew Jackson knew the truth that the SCOTUS had no power to impliment their rulings.

Nationwide judicial term limits of 10 years and then you are out would go a long way to get the seniles out.

The impeachment is interesting, but it says technically. To get these anti-Constitution Supremes removed it would take a lot more than a simple technicality.

What do you mean no longer. The last real uprising against an outragous Judge was the removal of Rose Bird in CA. Would never happen today.

Not just Jackson. IIRC, Lincoln carried an arrest warrant for Chief Justice Roger Tanney in his pocket for about six months, "just in case."

Well, now that the Republicans caved, we can pretty much expect a domestic International Court.

 KELO v. CITY OF NEW LONDON [Property Rights Opinions] -- " giving government a "license to transfer property from those with fewer resources to those with more."
 A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT (PROPERTY RIGHTS) -- I'm thinking this doesn't fall along the lines of your classic liberal or conservative definition in who is outraged. I've found tons with liberal ideas on some topics (abortion, gay rights, etc) are equally outraged over this as your "traditional" conservatives. There's some sort of weird division going on here, IMO...

And unlike politicians, these birds can't be voted out of office if they offend enough people.

With the court ruling, this may be needed to stand firm on judges. Not many know you can CALL ROVE'S OFFICE DIRECTLY (well, his assistant), bypassing the main switchboard. Tell Rove's office you support standing firm on this matter....and that it is high time to PRESENT A BLISTERING DEFENSE OF IRAQ POLICY and push for true tax reform, SS reform, and staying strong on judges. We need a conservative SCOTUS.

Tel for Rove's office: 202-456-5587 or 202-456-2369

Fax for Rove's office: 202-456-2461 (make sure to say it is for him on the cover sheet...seems there is just one big WH fax number that is public).
