Dead Judges Can’t Vote

See the source image

(Thanks to Susan for the news tip.)

Sounds like it ought to be a movie, doesn’t it? Dead Judges Can’t Vote, starring Shemp Howard and the Ninth Circuit Court.

Actually, it’s a new ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court, and a finding that “federal judges are appointed for life, not for eternity” (https://www.foxnews.com/politics/supreme-court-says-vote-of-dead-progressive-icon-judge-does-not-count).

Judge Stephen Reinhardt of the Ninth Circus Court–the “progressive icon” that struck down California’s ban on same-sex pseudomarriage: did you know judges were allowed to be progressive icons? I didn’t. I thought they were supposed to rule on the law, not on the politics–died of a heart attack last year, nine days before the court was to issue a ruling–a case, in fact, in which his vote was the key vote. However, the rule says you have to be alive when the ruling is actually issued by the court: otherwise your vote doesn’t count. The same rule applies to the Supreme Court–and that voided several opinions by Justice Scalia when he died suddenly. They knew how he intended to rule, but with him dead, it didn’t count.

Reinhardt was appointed to the Ninth Circuit by Jimmy Carter, the second-worst president in history. He may not have been the worst judge, but he certainly tried to be.

‘God of Our Fathers’

Here’s another one we used to sing in assembly in high school, until the Supreme Court came along and established secular humanism as the official religion before which all others must bow.

Gee, I wish we’d paid more attention to this hymn, and truly taken it to heart, while we were singing it!

You know what we should’ve done? We should’ve ignored them–just as Peter and John ignored the Temple authorities when they ordered them to stop preaching Jesus Christ.

We should have kept on praying, kept on singing, kept on saying “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holiday” (really, could anything be more ridiculous than a holiday whose name may not be mentioned?)–what were they gonna do about it? Throw us to the lions?

Now, this day, today–now is the time to stand back up again: and sing louder.

Supreme Court Justice Bashes Trump

Have you noticed how everyone who’s bad is lining up against Donald Trump?

One of the reasons our country’s founders gave Supreme Court justices lifetime appointments was to keep them out of politics. The justices are meant to judge cases on their merits, and not have any political axes to grind.

But now we come to Justice Ruth Bader “Way Out on the Left” Ginsburg, who recently expressed her horror of a possible Donald Trump presidency ( http://www.bendbulletin.com/home/4496206-151/a-justice-bashes-trump-too-far?referrer=fpblob ).

Do you think she’ll be fair and impartial in ruling on any controversies involving Donald Trump, his candidacy, or the election itself? If you do think that, would you also be interested in buying a deed to Easy Street?

But these people don’t even try anymore to conceal their contempt for law and propriety. They just do as they please, and the Supremes are the worst offenders of the lot. Whether it’s redefining the basic institutions of family life, or awarding the federal government ownership of our healthcare industry, the only law they recognize is whatever moves them for the moment.

Wouldn’t it be nice, someday, if we had lawmakers who actually obeyed the laws that they enforce upon the rest of us?

‘Every Time I Feel the Spirit’

I remember this one from way, way back. Would you believe it? We used to sing this in school! Thank you, Supreme Court, for protecting us from the God who created us, loves us, and secures our salvation through His only begotten Son, Jesus.  You had to make the schools safe for comprehensive sexuality education.

Sing louder, Christians–it may be God will hear us.

Even Republicans Can Do… Nothing!

I forbear to comment on libs ‘n’ progs turning cartwheels over the death of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. They are their own best advertisement.

And of course, here’s their chance to stack the Supreme Court during the last year of President *Batteries Not Included’s second term, enabling him to keep his hand around America’s throat for the next 30 years or so, given the court’s virtually dictatorial powers. His only problem will be to choose precisely which Leftist nudnick he wants to appoint. Jane Fonda? Bill Ayers? Louis Farrakhan? It’s an embarrassment of poverty.

But there’s a Republican majority in the Senate, which means that no one can become a Supreme Court justice unless the Republicans vote to confirm him (or her). No one. All the Senate Republicans have to do is… nothing.

They don’t even have to reject the nominee. They don’t have to vote on the matter at all. If they’re afraid of being called racists, afraid of their own shadows–well, all they have to do is nothing!

Stall for time, if you’re such cowards and dastards that you’re afraid to say “No!” to this president who throws like a girl. Yeah, yeah, we’re workin’ on it, ain’t we goin’ as fast as we can? Oh, darn, I lost that paperwork… Guess we’ll have to start over.

How quickly we forget.

When George W. Bush was president, and Harry Reid the Senate Minority Leader–that’s right, the Democrats didn’t have a majority–he tried to appoint Miguel Estrada to the appeals court in Washington, D.C. For two whole years the Democrats had hissy fits, and filibustered ceaselessly until Mr. Estrada withdrew his name from consideration. Two years!

All the Senate Republicans have to do, for only one year, is Nothing.

Even Beltway Republicans ought to be able to figure out how to do Nothing.

Yes, the Supreme Court Does Exceed Its Authority

A reader, Invisible Mikey, has taken me to task for not understanding the Supreme Court’s power of judicial review and for saying that the court, far exceeding its Constitutional authority, makes laws. You can see his full statement as a comment appended to the previous post, “Libs Move to Protect Religious Liberty.”

I have just re-read, twice, Article III of the Constitution, which defines the role of the Supreme Court. There is nothing in there about court decisions becoming “the law of the land” without benefit of legislation.

But we don’t bother with legislation anymore, do we? The court makes a ruling, or the president issues an executive order–“stroke of the pen, law of the land: cool!” And, as if by magic, marriage suddenly becomes the union of two persons of the same sex.

During my lifetime, politicians have used the Supreme Court to do their dirty work for them. Thus school prayer gets abolished, the state religion of the USA becomes secular humanism, abortion becomes “the law of the land” and snuffs out 50 million babies, and now even the most basic institutions of society are not safe from the court’s tampering.

All of these innovations were given to the court to execute because the politics for any one of them just wasn’t right. Introduce a bill in Congress to ban school prayer and see what the voters think of that.

I do not believe the polls that supposedly tell us that the American people are “overwhelmingly in  favor of gay marriage.” If that were so, it would have been the easiest thing in the world for politicians to ride the crest of the wave and redefine marriage using the ordinary legislative process, right under the dome of the capitol building. But again the dirty work was left to the court.

This is not to excuse Congress. Congress makes some truly horrible laws. But the strictly Constitutional remedy, when they do that, is to vote ’em out. Judicial Review was only established years after the ratification of the Constitution–and not by legislation, or amendment, but only by custom and public acceptance of the court’s expansion of its powers. It seemed like a good idea at the time!

I wonder what will be left of the Constitution by this time next year.

Sodomite Imitation Marriage, Abortion, and Hellfire

Yesterday was the most shameful day in U.S. history, and America will never live it down.

This Supreme Court ruling has already been compared to Roe v. Wade, the ruling that “legalized” abortion without any laws being passed, and which has been wrangled over since the 1970s. But there are some important differences.

*No doctor has ever been forced to perform an abortion; but justices of the peace–and eventually churches–are going to be forced to perform these satanic parodies of marriage.

*No ordinary person who is not a physician has ever been forced to assist in an abortion, in any way; but already small business owners have been persecuted and destroyed by the government for declining to take an active part in one of these sham “weddings.”

*Abortion did not require a radical makeover of our society, to be made to stick; but mock marriage will not endure unless its proponents can successfully criminalize Christianity, subvert and disable the church, and make mincemeat of our First Amendment.

All three of the above have already come to pass in Canada. It was easier there, because Canada doesn’t have a First Amendment. But no one can say America’s homofascists are afraid of hard work!

The hysterical celebrations by America’s rulers yesterday will also go down in history. The nadir, of course, was their ordering all the monuments in Washington lit up with rainbow floodlights–the rainbow, remember, was originally a sign from God–to celebrate active defiance of the word of God. But these antichrists specializes in taking God’s name in vain.

Every one of those persons who celebrated has put his or her soul in danger of damnation. This is open rebellion against God; it will not stand, nor will it prosper.

Who is on the Lord’s side?

If you are, you’d better let Him know it.
