Who is More Dangerous and Out of Control – Obama or the Courts?

Americans have been watching President Obama assume more absolute power than any president in history.  He has openly violated more sections of the US Constitution and federal laws than any group of presidents in history.  He has all the earmarks of turning America into a Marxist dictatorship, but is he really the most dangerous and out of control political entity in the United States.

When the Founding Fathers established the three branches of government, they did so with the idea that there would be checks and balances on each to make sure that no one branch assumes too much power.  In fact, their original intent was that the judicial branch was to be the least powerful of the three branches.  But as we have seen in the past few decades, the judicial branch has assumed the role of having the ultimate and final authority in the land, even over the other two branches of government and over the will of the American people.

Cases in point:

  • Californians vote not to legalize same-sex marriages only to have one judge overturn the voter’s decision and make same-sex marriage legal.  It turns out that this judge was a long time, active homosexual and ruled not by law but from personal bias.
  • Vermont judge who took the biological daughter away from her Christian birth mother only to give custody to an ex-lesbian lover who the girl is afraid of and has nightmares about.
  • Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade that led to the murder of over 50 million defenseless unborn children.  The justices that made the majority rule did so on their personal beliefs and not on constitutional law that was designed to protect the lives of all Americans, especially the innocent.
  • Ninth Circuit Court in California has the longest list of illegal and unconstitutional rulings of any court, that among other things ruled that students can’t say ‘under God’ when they say the Pledge of Allegiance.
  • The Supreme Court’s ruling in 2005 on the Kelo v City of New London decision that gave local governments the right to confiscate the property of a private citizen by use of eminent domain and award the property to another entity who will make changes to the property resulting in greater tax revenue for the local government.
  • Texas court ruling where a judge threatened jail time to any student that prayed, mimicked a prayer or said amen at graduation ceremonies.
  • American courts that have been making rulings based upon Muslim Sharia law while at the same ruling against Christians.
  • Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan’s refusal to recuse herself from an upcoming hearing on Obamacare and the Chief Justice supporting her decision.
  • Supreme Court ruling on supposed separation of church and state, giving legal status to religion of atheism and denying legal status to Christianity.

The list goes on and on and you get the idea.  What’s worse is that most Americans believe that the courts have the final say in everything.  We’ve all been taught that once the Supreme Court issues a ruling that only a Constitutional Amendment can change that ruling.  But that is not necessarily the case.

Thomas Jefferson foresaw the danger of allowing the courts, especially the Supreme Court, to have the final say in all matters.  Jefferson wrote,

“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.”

The Constitution does make provisions for both the Congress and President to reign in an out-of-control judicial system.  Among those measures are the ability to remove judges and justices from their benches on grounds of ‘bad behavior’ and shouldn’t putting personal preferences ahead of law or ruling to change the Constitution be considered bad enough behavior to have them removed?

The problem is that we have a spineless Congress that is too weak and fearful to take any action against the tyranny of the judicial system.  They would rather allow the courts to continue to strip Americans of their rights and freedoms as were once guaranteed by the US Constitution.

In this election year, we need to be asking every politician, local, state and federal how they feel about the judicial system and if they have the hardware it takes to remove judges and justices and reign in the tyranny of the bench.  And their answer should have a major bearing on your decision of whether or not to cast your vote for them.

    Yes, the courts have been very active in supporting the liberals agenda, this is why we must elect conservatives and Republicans, as Democrat pols always appoint liberal activist judges. Defeat Obama in 2012 and take back the Senate!

    • Lawrence

      IT HAS NOTHING To do with spinlessness It has to do with immorality, they are not Christians no matter what they say : Jesus said you will know them by their Love for one another " also by their works, since their works are corrupt so are they, The ten commandments are still in effect and so is God through Jesus Christ, and the declaration of independence says what now must be done, whether we as a moral people or not some things must be done distastefull or not but first we must make sure what path God ( alpha& omega ) wants us to travel, since It seems that most prophecy of His coming is fulfilled , Just live life like it is your last day, it just might be!

      • Myrtlelinder

        Lawrence, it is both spinelessness and immorality? Referring to politicians, there are many of them who believe in GOD and HIS WORD. Those are either spineless or their faith is not very strong. The general population is right in he boat with them. Instead of standing against the evil, that is being promoted and legalized, we just go along, hoping GOD will take care of it. I can just assume, that most Christians think GOD will take care of it all and give us a choice in how HE takes care of it.l. HE will take care of it, but unless we stand up for our own beliefs, we will not have any choice, at all, in how HE does it.

        STAND UP AND SPEAK UP FOR GOD'S WILL TO BE DONE

          Just thought that i'd add that "ONLY" HEBREW is the INSPIRED LANGUAGE(ZEPH. 3:9, Acte 26:14, 1 Cor. 4:6) and there is NO GOD OR JESUS IN HEBREW! WATCH, especially starting September 16, 2012 on the Israelite Feast of Trumpets(war). Just saying...!

        • Shot in the Foot

          Myrtlelinder; Satan believes in God as these crooks do. They just think they have more power. Most of the Americans have become gutless wonders. People say my Jonny wouldn't do that. Want to bet.
          Rummy designer of obamacare. Dem. turned Rep. I doubt it. As a Rep. Gov. he sure did everything like a Dem.
          Rick Santorium Dem then rep. I doubt it, he sided with the libs on gun control.
          Rick Perry Dem Than Rep. I doubt it to many times he helped the Dems.
          Knewt Sided with the Dems. on gun control.
          Huntmen worked for Clinton. He's no Pep.
          All these people claim to be conservitive, I doubt it! Wolves in sheeps clothing. And the fools are following them because they want something for nothing. Look at all the wolves that voted for the unconstitutional NDAA.
          The reason most people will not follow Ron Paul is they don't want to lose some give me's If we go back to the constitution.

    • EX-Mormon CULT.

      BOTH. Obama and the Courts.

    • ZagoZana

      Compared to all these rulings nothing is more damaging to these United States of America than when the right-wing SUPREMIST COURT'S decision to give corporations PERSONHOOD! This is a travisty of the courts that once gave woman the vote and slaves their freedom and now gives corporate wealth potentially absolute power.
      We are no longer in the united States of America. We are in a netherland where people and their theoretical equal rights under the law are usurped.( to seize and hold (a position, office, power, etc.) by force or without legal right: The pretender tried to usurp the throne.) by the unlimited power of the amoral, atheistic corporation whose gods are money and power. Your single vote can not contend with the power of these non-dying, entities. The SUPER-PACS that are now becoming evident in the Repubican campaines are owned and run without reguard to our Fore Fathers ethical underpinnings. They stole our G-d given inaliable rights to faith, freedom, security. You will feel their rath as we are driven towards more wars and unbelievable hardships that only their pathilogical greed can muster. One person, one vote has been nulified...

    That is like asking, which is worse, the electric chair or the guy that turns the juice on.........

    • 1599

      Good point. Both are out of control and equally dangerous for the nation.

  • Sick of Barry S.

    They are both just as bad as the other. They are both gasters and crooks. This is what America gets when they vote for a President that isn't even eligible to be President and then that President puts crooks in power all around him. The only way to stop it is to throw Barry (AKA Obama) out of office and into prison where he belongs along with all his cronies.

    Biggest Threat to US Comes From Within Our Own Government!
    A Tyrannical Dictatorship! Dictatorships with the military might to yield on US soil with the reversed Posse Comitatus Act! And now with the NDAA passed into law the powers that be can have their way by hook or crook, as well as use the mere suggestion that anyone can be deemed “enemy combatant” because of a person’s belief and/or opinion that can be considered rebellious if it’s not the same as the Tyrannical Dictatorship’s view.

    It amazes me that the "head in the sand" Americans have stood by and watched the corruption and dismantling of the government by ayatollah hussien obama and have done ABSOLUTELY BLOODY NOTHING ABOUT IT. I am so disgusted with the corrupt Congress, Senate, Reserve Bank et al and the feeling of hopelessness has not only spread over me but the majority of poor and old Americans. Might I say that I apply this to White people only, because the majority of free loaders that are assisted by the Government are Blacks. It is too late - by the time ayatollah hussien obama is finished with America and has passed an edict that all American flags be burnt and destroyed, then and only then will he be happy and Nigeria will look like paradise in comparison to the United States of America. WE THE PEOPLE have brought this nightmare on themselves. I rest my case.

    • mymisstake

      You at least have your eyes opened to the truth. If we were going to do something the time is long past when we first had reason to do so. We just all stand around waiting for something to change. For cowardly senators and congressman to grow a pair, for someone to DO something. How long will we be deceived by our continuing grumbling. William Shakespeare wrote: Life... "is a tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." Based on what I've seen he was "right on" when he penned those immortal words.

  • http://yahoo.com Thomas M

    Term limits for all these surpreme court justices as no one should be ever appointed a life time jobs. When obama goes so do those he appointed don't let them spread their posion any futher than they have already.

    TERM LIMITS FOR ALL THOSE ELECTED AND APPOINTED.

    Vote obama out in 2012 as he's one evil vile POS and as many of his band of thieves as we can to both rino's and democrats.

    • mymisstake

      I'm not sure this country is going to survive long enough to vote Obama out if indeed we would. Anyway, he can always call out the New Black Panthers to make sure things go the right way.

  • SEAN MURRY

    both are dangerous to this country.

  • ConservaDave

    Pres. Obama, Justices Kagan and Sotomayor, what is the difference between the Constitution and a roll of toilet paper?
    You don't know?
    That's what I thought.

  • floyd

    Is he "natural born" according to the Constitution? No. The requirement is that
    BOTH parents need to be U. S. Citizens. Two U. S. Citizen parents produce a
    "natural born" citizen. It's likely that Mr. Obama was REGISTERED in Hawaii,
    therefore he has a COLB from Hawaii. The truth may well be he was born in Kenya;
    that is where we believe his "long-form" birth certificate was issued.
    Nevertheless, "natural born" indicates, and speaks to the fact that BOTH parents
    have to be U. S. Citizens. His father WAS NEVER a U. S. Citizen, therefore,
    Barack Hussein Obama is NOT a "natural born" Citizen of the United States, thus
    he is in violation of Amendment 14, and Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 5 of
    the United States Constitution.

    • mymisstake

      So what? That charge has been made time and time again. The response is that Pavlov's Dogs dutifully chirp "Birthers" and then the world goes back to what it was doing.

  • hwlone

    Why not add the Congress whatever the label.

  • floyd

    Im not on anything and im not exaggerating,, I actually had this dream..
    At 3:00 AM this morning i woke from a dream that made me sit straight up in my bed.. What i saw in my dream was a horrific vision of what obama is doing to our country.. There was this huge whale breaching the waters for air, And obama had two long Scimitars one in each hand flailing away at the whales sides, on these swords was inscribed TREASONEST on each sword, The whales sides were sliced open from blow hole to tail..and what was coming out of the whales side was not only blood gushing out,, but American people and money, What woke me was the SCREAM from the whale every time obama slashed at the whales side… i seen obamas face his eyes were bright red his body covered in blood an he was laughing so hard he could barely stand before he slung the saif’s on the whales side again and again.. i didnt sleep the rest of the night..

    Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. We the People have given way too much power to all 3 branches of government and it's time we take it back.

    If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin......Sam Adams

  • Walt

    Perhaps we as a people should try defying some of these Judges and their ruling. For example; what would a judge do if the school kids refused to follow his ruling regarding saying UNDER GOD in he pledge? Order the arrest of all the kids - who would enforce such an order? It is time to stand up to some of these judges and their rulings as a group of americans.

  • Pegi

    That's a real tossup! Both are liberal as heck and want to give away the store.

  • Michael

    Shane,
    You're right on about electing someone (I prefer Congressman Dr. Ron Paul.) to remove o. R's need control of the Senate.

  • toosmarttovoteGOP

    SCOTUS is far and away the most out of control and Congress long ago abrogated it's authority to control it.

  • The Quadfather

    You do not want to remove judges at a time when a marxist is in charge of appointing the replacement. Bad strategy. We (conservatives) must be in control of replacing the judges first, then go at it. A side note, judges often seem hesitant to overturn long standing rulings or laws if they favor the left, but have no fear or hesitation to overturn rulings or laws that favor the right even when they know such rulings or laws are unconstitutional.

  • Bob Eisenbart

    The president can veto congress, which can override with a superlike (2/3)majority but the supreme court is not subjected to a check/balance process per se. What we need is an amendment to rectify this. How about if the president and a super majority (2/3)of the congress could vote to override a decision clearly not constitutional but based on Judicial discretion (personal opinions). Anyone else got any ideas? I've always felt that 9 persons in black robes should never be able override the will of the people unless that will is a clear violation of the constitution.

  • SUSANM

    WHAT OBAMA SAY'S 99% OF THE JUDGES DO AS OBAMA SAY'S THIS IS SAD, WHEN YOU HAVE A GOVERNMENT THAT SIDE'S WITH OBAMA ALL THE TIME (DEMS & REP) THIS IS NOT OUR COUNTRY? WE HAVE NO ONE TO PROTECT US BUT OURSELVES, ANOTHER SAD THING.

  • berthold

    Why does it surprise anybody that the supreme court is grabbing so much power? Everybody acts as if this power grab started with Roe vs Wade, well it didn't. It start. Back when they over ruled state laws, and said state laws banning inter-racial were unconstitutional. This is what happens when 9 lawyers in black dresses gain the power to become the constitution. It is called a dictatorship.

  • Dusty1

    For all of the reasons stated in the article, the government today is setting up our country for divine punishment. I believe it's coming our way shortly. I regret that many innocents will also suffer the punishment.

  • evantoo

    Actually, it's a toss-up as to which of the two is worst. I give them both an equal level of corruption and Constitutional f-ups.

  • Stephen

    And what adds to the problem is, there is not one person running on the GOP ticket that is willing to make these judges or Obama accountable.

    But if the average Joe was to pull some of these same stunts, they couldn't put us in federal prison fast enough! It really is a matter of who's kidding whom!

  • AJP

    They both are crooked and out of Control neither one are worth two dead fly's

  • Fed Up In Texas

    I think it's a wash. Six of one, a half dozen of the other. Meanwhile the Legislature - the most powerful of the three branches in the Founders' vision of the government - sits impotently on the sidelines letting the Executive and Judiciary operate utterly contrary to the Constitution with impunity.

    Sometimes I wonder why Congress bothers to meet at all. To all appearances the Executive and Judiciary could get along JUST FINE if Congress went into permanent recess. I've heard it said that Congress does its best while it's in recess.
