Skip to comments.Republicans Step Up Attacks on Judiciary
Posted on 04/09/2005 5:49:59 PM PDT by Crackingham
Christian conservatives, led by some top Republicans, are stepping up their assault on the U.S. judiciary in response to the Terri Schiavo case, saying judges are attacking religion and must be reined in. At a conference on Thursday and Friday organized by the Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional Restoration, an umbrella group bringing together many religious conservative organizations, prominent Republicans joined with activists to assault what they term "judicial activism."
House of Representatives Majority Leader Tom DeLay, under fire for his use of campaign dollars and other ethical problems, addressed the conference in a videotaped message on Thursday in which he denounced a "judiciary run amok."
"Our next step, whatever it is, must be more than rhetoric," the Texas Republican told the conference, entitled "Confronting the Judicial War on Faith."
President Bush, asked about DeLay's comments, said on Friday: "I believe in an independent judiciary. I believe in proper checks and balances. And we'll continue to put judges on the bench who strictly and faithfully interpret the Constitution."
Conservatives including DeLay have intensified their criticism of judges in the aftermath of the Schiavo case. Several at the conference said the Florida woman who died last week, 13 days after her feeding tube was removed, was a victim of "judicial murder."
"I believe the judicial branch of our government has overstepped its authority on countless occasions, overturning and, in some cases, ignoring the legitimate will of the people," said DeLay, who was unable to attend the conference because he was in Rome for Pope John Paul II's funeral.
Go get 'em, Mr. Delay. My check is on the way.
We are not "assaulting" the judiciary, we are reforming it.
This is why we elected them, they better deliver.
The New York Times, The Washington Post, moveon.org, & George Soros decided to place yet another big bet using what remains of their clout after a failed 2004 election gambit to get Bush. news.google.com may provide us with a useful adhoc metric to measure Soros' clout in attracting fellow travelers from MSM willing to double down by going out on a limb with him yet again.
Update: Interesting how the quantity of stories that parrot Soros' propaganda actually dropped this morning. Perhaps google mitotically split the orginal story thread into several threads. Or maybe google removed virtual duplicates to mitigate a process known to me as google fluffing whereby an member of MSM keeps publishing the same story with minor changes, which sometimes builds up a story thread up until it appears on the front page of google news.

Every time a body is found after an Amber alert or some vicious perp is released, we should remember that Dems and Rinos have weakened the whole judicial system and that it matters who is at the top levels.
Exactly! It's NOT just about Christianity, it's about their arrogance, and their legislating from the bench. It's about their disregard for the Constitution! The "life time appointment" law needs to be changed. It has lead to tyranny! Some of those old goats have lost their minds, and need to be retired.
Watched part of the meeting on CSpan. I see Reuters reporter made everyone Christian, which I'm sure will come to quite a surprise to the Jewish participants.
Translation: Republicans seek to preserve the Constitution, even though it includes protecting stupefyingly brain dead news organizations like rooters.
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.
A question from the back of the class: If Congress may from time to time ordain and establish inferior courts (heh, heh), does this not imply that Congress may from time to time DIS-establish and UN-ordain said courts?
Reuters, your bias is blatant........it's more than that.
Judges attack religion, the Constitution, the separation of powers; they rule by fiat and whim. They have become a bunch of renegades who want to impose their blurred vision on the rest of us.
Ahhhh...as usual, the biased headline by the ROOTER REUTERS...clymers!!
Ping. Bad judges should be ousted from the bench and sent to jail if they are GUILTY AS CHARGED.
Hey when the heat is on and frnakly you're beginning to look like the dems prior to the Contract in 94, find someone to demonize like you did in the late 80's and early 90's.
