Recognizing and Dealing with Modern Judicial Terrorism
November 8, 2010
When running down the laundry list of modern threats to freedom and liberty in America, atop that list is the corrupt and anti-constitutional nature of today’s judicial branch. Without a genuine respect for the rule of law and reverence for the supreme law of this land inside the judicial branch, JFK is right – an absence of peaceful solutions will always result in violent revolution.
"When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." – Thomas Jefferson
It didn’t take long for Jefferson to recognize the one major flaw in the U.S. Constitution.
Our founders entrusted the power to interpret the Constitution and law to the 3rd branch, the judicial branch. At the time, the term “interpret” was limited by definition to – To explain the meaning of words to a person who does not understand them; to expound; to translate unintelligible words into intelligible ones; as, to interpret the Hebrew language to an Englishman.
But by Jefferson’s letter to Coray in 1823, it had already become clear that lifetime political appointees would soon expand the definition of their own power, to interpretations driven by political motives and limited only by the imagination.
Today, we watch a daily diet of judicial tyranny and terrorism to the degree that we are no longer shocked or even dismayed.
Arizona cannot secure its border or protect its citizens from invasion and drug wars spilling across from Mexico.
New York cannot balance its state budget without federal approval, which is based upon labor union agreement.
Citizens only have the rights that the ruling class elite are willing to afford on any given day, so long as those rights are not used to speak out against the ruling class elite, in which case you have already been identified by Homeland Security as a “potential domestic terrorist.”
This is what we can expect when the people have forgotten to be forever vigilant for decades, leaving the running of this nation of, by and for the people, in the hands of elected snake oil salesmen and women.
Today, the power structure in America is turned upside-down. The Founders gave birth to a nation and government of, by and for the people. Today, our government and nation runs at odds with the vast majority of the people.
In priority of greatest power –
In short, the current state of our union today is far worse than that which caused our nation’s founders to break from England and toss tea into the Boston Harbor.
The people fear their government. The government is only mildly irritated by those “right-wing extremists” willing to speak out in opposition.
We are no longer allowed to discuss God in government or good government in church. Our current White House resident announced to the world that we are no longer a Christian nation, despite our entire history rooted deeply in Judeo-Christian principles and values of individual free will.
But on March 23, 1775, Patrick Henry stood in St. John’s church in Richmond Virginia for the sole purpose of presenting the most famous political speech in American history. Most American’s are familiar with the closing sentence of this speech – “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
However, few American’s are familiar with the entire speech or related history concerning the orator, Patrick Henry. There was no prewritten speech, no speech writers and no teleprompter. Henry was not one of the more successful men of his time, having spent more time failing than succeeding.
Yet he was passionate about individual freedom and liberty and when he spoke at St. John’s Church that day, he spoke eloquently from the heart. More importantly, his words are as appropriate today as they were in 1775.
And so it is today… when truth is so frightening that the lies are preferred by many in society. In 1775, there were those who mocked Henry, as a radical or warmonger. There were others who preferred to negotiate peace at the price of liberty.
However, Henry was firm…
There is but one significant difference between 1775 and today and that difference is the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution and Bill of Rights had yet to be written, much less ratified and implemented.
Today, we face the same threat to individual freedom and liberty, this time largely from within the hall of our own elected government. However, we have a peaceful remedy that did not exist in 1775, the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, which have indeed stood the test of time.
Our state of the union is threatened because the Constitution is not presently in full force or effect. The remedy is to resurrect this document returning it to its proper place as the supreme law of this land. The only thing standing in the way is our corrupt Judicial Branch, which imagines its power as an oligarchy, where only a select few are free to rule over all others via judicial fiat.
Jefferson was right and so was Henry.
Our Justice Branch presents the greatest threat to individual freedom and liberty in America. Without strict adherence to the Constitution and principles of free-will within, there can be no personal or economic freedom and liberty.
But a nation, in which the judiciary rests all decisions upon the brilliant works of our founders, can be forever free and prosperous.
What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
What God has made free, let no man enslave.
It is not the Constitution that should be judged by the courts, but rather the courts that must be judged by the Constitution. In this country, the American people are the only rightful jury.
