Courting Illusion

Does our current status quo make our Constitution a suicide pact? Thomas Jefferson certainly thought it could be, warning that accepting judicial supremacy would make our founding document just that, a felo de se, as he put it in Latin.

Acceptance of judicial supremacy, by the way, is precisely why President Trump’s temporary ban on immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations is on hold. Imagine that, Alexander Hamilton wrote in The Federalist, No. 78 that the judiciary is the “least dangerous” branch of government because it “has no influence over either the sword or the purse.” Yet it’s trumping the man with the sword: the president. Does it have to be this way?

No, Trump could simply ignore the court ruling suspending his ban.

Outrageous!? Unconstitutional!? Actually, it’s wholly constitutional.

In his dissent from the 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges marriage ruling, the late Justice Antonin Scalia warned that with “each decision… unabashedly based not on law,” the Court moves “one step closer to being reminded of [its] impotence.” What did Scalia know about courts’ power?

That it’s basically an illusion.

“A new era of justice begins and it begins right now,” Trump said at the ceremony.

Another great patriot by the name of Davy Crockett was also enduring relentless and brutal political attack from all sides. But he too stood fast and said this…….

“I have suffered myself to be politically sacrificed to save my country from ruin and disgrace and if I am never again elected I will have the gratification to know that I have done my duty.”

History repeats itself. Go Donald. MAGA!!!!!!

What a totally avoidable faux issue. President Trump and his administration are fully aware that as far as the left is concerned this is unrestricted warfare. Facts are irrelevant. The end justifies the means. The enemy he faces are two. The democrats and the media are both opposing armies. Both are highly motivated, dishonest, devoid any any sense of morals and equally ruthless. If Trump’s admin. learn anything from this fiasco hopefully it will be to take the time to first explain what and why they are doing something. Strike first and disarm the enemies with facts such as it… Read more »
