We have all decried the excesses of activist judges who legislate from the bench. For some reason we have allowed ourselves to be bamboozled into thinking that there is nothing we can save get better judges. That has to stop.
Daniel Horowitz points out the silver bullet nobody seems to see: US Constitution, Article III Section 2 #2: 2: “In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make.”That’s at 1:15 in the video below.
And Horowitz is right, a legislative candidate, at whatever level of government, who runs on compelling the judiciary to enforce the law or face penalties would be a winning candidate. Penalties such as removing illegal immigration cases from the courts’ jurisdiction, making all such cases a a routine administrative procedure, for example.
Another thing he points out, judges can be impeached for bad behavior. I’d say that flouting the law as written is bad behavior. I could say, “Oh, that will never work, they’ll just win in the end.” Yeah, probably, at first. At first it will just be a case of forcing the Left to defend its chosen instruments, expending time and resources that they would rather not spend. Get enough of these cases going and they will inevitably lose some.
In any event, more can be done than is currently being attempted. Failure to attempt to oppose the Left is a recipe for certain defeat. They know that, which is why they go to such lengths to discourage us, by threats of violence, by lying to us, by convincing us that we don’t stand a snowball’s chance.
Newsflash: Snowball Trump won.
