Still reeling from the Obama administration’s ongoing socialist makeover of their country, most Americans have understandably focused their outrage on the executive and legislative branches of government, watching a rogue president and radicalized Congress wreak havoc on the freest, most prosperous nation on earth.
Yet, the branch of government arguably most responsible for the “fundamental transformation of America” is neither the executive nor legislative.The most arrogant, unaccountable and transformational branch of government today is the judiciary, which, virtually unshackled from the Constitution, has declared itself the supreme branch of government.
Unquestionably, the most consequential downward changes America has suffered in recent decades – corruptions of law, foundational values and core institutions so radical that no president, no Congress, no governor or state legislature, could conceivably implement them – have been forced on Americans by a rogue judiciary.
Wantonly irrational and unconstitutional judicial decisions are now the norm – from the
- California judge who overruled the will of millions of voters and single-handedly legalized same-sex marriage in that state (only to later reveal he himself is a homosexual in a long-term relationship with another man – a gross conflict of interest);
- to the Ninth Circuit ruling that schoolchildren can’t say “under God” when reciting the Pledge of Allegiance; to the Texas judge who threatened to throw students in jail for praying or even uttering words like “prayer” or “amen” at a graduation ceremony;
- to the Supreme Court’s notorious 2005 Kelo decision allowing local governments literally to confiscate a citizen’s property and award it to another party if that “taking” increased their tax revenues;
- to the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that invented the “constitutional right” to kill preborn children – 50 million and counting.
And for every high-profile case like these, there are a multitude of others – like that of the Vermont judge who took a little girl away from her loving, Christian, biological mother and awarded full custody instead to the mother’s one-time lesbian partner who reportedly gives the child nightmares – decisions that, over time, have degraded Americans’ basic freedoms, faith, institutions and values.
Worse, Americans have long been deceived into believing there’s nothing they can do – that once a judge rules, it’s “game over,” especially when the Supreme Court decides a case. Only a constitutional amendment can trump a Supreme Court decision, we’ve been taught.
Though America’s judiciary has usurped power it does not constitutionally possess, it is only the cowardice and complicity of the other two branches of government – executive and legislative – and the ignorance of state governments and the general public that keep the modern myth of “judicial supremacy” alive.
Thomas Jefferson issued a dire warning to future generations of Americans. He said, ‘To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.

America can – indeed must – reestablish the constitutional balance of powers and end the tyranny of the judiciary, which too long has served as the cutting edge in remolding America into the image of the political and moral left.
