What To Do About American Judicial Overreach?


American conservatives have been bemoaning judicial activism since at least the 1950s, but the problem is getting worse. Today, courts mandate the release of criminal aliens into our communities even as they jail peaceful Christians for refusing to play along with “gay marriage.” Yet cowardly Conservatism Inc. apparatchiks still refuse to confront judicial tyranny, fearing negative consequences that might flow from “extreme measures,” and content themselves by vainly hoping future Republicans will appoint more strict constitutionalists. In his new book Stolen Sovereignty: How to Stop Unelected Judges from Transforming America, Conservative Review’s Daniel E. Horowitz, a long-time VDARE.com favorite, urges his fellow conservatives to abandon such vain hopes and gird up their loins for a death struggle against the out-of-control judiciary.

Horowitz points out that recent court decisions represent a new level of judicial imperialism that would have made Earl Warren blush. In its gay marriage decree, the Supreme Court mandated a social revolution in the name of a concept not only utterly absent from the Constitution, but non-existent until a generation ago.

    Maduro in Venezuela has stacked the high court with his supporters, and now, despite the fact that the legislature is overwhelmingly in opposition to Maduro, they can get nothing done. The court overturns every piece of legislation they pass.

    The Democrats will start to look sympathetically at this proposal as and when the old reliable lefties on the court come up for replacement during the Trump administration.

    Democrats were fine with Obama threatening to cut funding to Schools that don’t offer trans-wash rooms.

      They were also fine with Obama cutting off funding to charter schools in DC. Apparently Obama didn’t want intelligent blacks wandering off the plantation.

    We now have a run-away judiciary in the United States.

      Own the lawschools, then the courts, then get bureaucratic (increasingly international) rule by law. It’s old hat up here.
