Skip to comments.Judicial terrorism: Craige McMillan warns courts more dangerous to citizens than al-Qaida

"The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behavior, and shall, at stated times, receive for their services, a compensation, which shall not be diminished during their continuance in office ... the Supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make."
United States Constitution
This Monday the Ninth "Circus" Court of Appeals decided that California could not hold its scheduled recall election. The court's reasoning can be summed up this way: The punch-card voting machines that returned Gov. Gray Davis to power in the previous election, the same ones that gave him victory in the election before that, are insufficiently reliable to remove him from power and elect a successor now.
The suit was brought by the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, NAACP ... and blessed by the ACLU, no doubt in the hope that more time would enable Mexico's Vicente Fox to be listed as a write-in candidate on the California ballot, so that millions of illegals can vote to elect him governor.
So far this year, the federal courts have inflicted more damage on American citizens than the combined mayhem of the world's terrorists. Thanks in large part to Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, now touring the country touting her book "The Majesty of the Law," equal protection under the 14th Amendment no longer applies if you're white and trying to get into a state-funded college. Blacks and other minorities may be awarded extra points on their entrance exams because, well, the state feels like doing it.
Thanks to the federal fools in Alabama's federal appeals court, the Ten Commandments can no longer be displayed in that state's courts. It seems to have escaped their notice that the same Ten Commandments are etched into the U.S. Supreme Court's building as the law is received from God by Moses. Not only they but "We the People" were robbed by their alleged education.
While our laws and traditions being discarded, the laws of other nations have begun guiding certain Supreme Court justices. They openly acknowledge this indeed, are proud of it. These are the laws and rulings that led them to decide that Texas and other states can no longer outlaw homosexual sodomy. Should we be comforted that still other nations have laws requiring an Islamic theocracy?
The latest law handed down from Moses' replacement forbids California to hold its scheduled recall election. I think the State of California would be well advised to continue on with its election. In the event any of the Ninth "Circus" justices' attempts to interfere, state officials should order the arrest and incarceration of the entire cadre of federal appeals-court judges on federal terrorism charges. The new federal anti-terrorism statutes are quite clear. They cover actions which "appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion ... and occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States."
Why are President Bush, Attorney General Ashcroft and Congress AWOL in the face of judicial terrorism? What could be more fundamental than our right to elect our own state government officials?
The Constitution is quite clear. Neither the Supreme Court or its inferior courts (and the Ninth "Circus" is certainly inferior in every sense of the word) have a figleaf of jurisdiction regarding how California elects or unelects state officials. Furthermore, these judicial terrorists know they have no authority. Certainly they were forced to read the Constitution at least once during their law-school education? Are they not therefore guilty of attempting to "coerce a civilian population and influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion"?
Congress is the only governmental branch with the constitutional authority to rein in a federal judiciary gone mad. The Constitution does not say that federal judgeships are "lifetime appointments." It clearly says that all federal judgeships including those at the Supreme Court are occupied during "good behavior."
Well, just how is issuing a ruling that terrorizes state officials where you have no authority "good behavior"? How does ignoring the equal-protection clause for whites but enforcing it for blacks become "good behavior?" How does citing the touchy-feelie laws of other nations give any legal force to a court decision that Texas or any other state must eliminate laws against homosexual sodomy? All of these are the actions of a court bent on intimidating the civilian population of this nation without a shred of legal standing to do so. They are judicial terrorists.
If necessary, we can mourn and survive bin Laden's next outrage. We cannot survive acts of treason by those entrusted with administering justice and preserving our nation's institutions. The left has used the judiciary, which feeds from the law schools, since at least the days of LBJ to undermine the character and institutions of our nation. Leftists do this because they know their one-size-fits-all socio-communist longings cannot be implemented legislatively, because the Constitution forbids it. Deceit and subterfuge are their only hope. That is why Senate Democrats, no longer worthy of the name liberals, are willing to fight to the death to prevent even a single judge who respects the Constitution from being seated.
Terrorism has made Arafat one of the world's richest and most powerful men. Judicial terrorism has done the same for Democrats in the United States Senate. Bush and the Congress must crush the Senate Democrats' ability to deny qualified jurists a judgeship, simply because they support the Constitution. Then they must begin to remove the most egregious judicial terrorists for outliving their claim toward "good behavior."
Trust me: When the first impeachment happens, all federal judges in America will develop a newfound respect for the law.
Didn't those two groups turn on Bush 41 and enabled to Clintons to replenish the courts and the bureaucracy with life-long and career-appointed Liberals and Socialists?
Over-riding a state constitution on such a flimsy argument...judicial terrorists (Florida Supremes & 9th Circuit) are truly domestic enemies. When the ballot box has been rigged or taken away the bullet box is the last line of defense for a free people.
