Drain the Black-Robed Bayou
Author: Steve Huston  


While the executive branch has taken steps to “drain the swamp,” it’s time for Congress to drain the Bayou of black-robed creatures who flaunt their stolen sovereignty, oppressing people and tyrannically imposing their unconstitutional (illegal) will upon states and their good citizenry.

The courts are part of the checks and balance system our founding fathers so wisely put in place, but this system only works when each branch only does what they are supposed to do. Judges don’t make law; what they say does not become the “law of the land.” As, author and radio host Daniel Horowitz explains, “Congress acting within Constitutional authority and a president properly executing any delegated authority—that’s the law of the land.” These judges are only meant to issue judgment on individual cases based on laws which are already in place. They aren’t supposed to legislate from the bench. The legislative branch (Congress) and the executive branch (President) need to start doing their jobs, reining in these black-robed creatures with their legislating, sovereignty-stealing gavels.

The judiciary, by nature, was created to be the weakest branch of our government. Founding father Alexander Hamilton, in Federalist 78, stated that:

Whoever attentively considers the different departments of power must perceive, that, in a government in which they are separated from each other, the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them. The Executive not only dispenses the honors, but holds the sword of the community. The legislature not only commands the purse, but prescribes the rules by which the duties and rights of every citizen are to be regulated. The judiciary, on the contrary, has no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, but merely judgment; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgments.”

In the case of immigration, rather than depending on the aid of the executive arm, the court is trying to twist the executive arm. Instead of humbly fulfilling their duty, the judiciary has been overreaching their authority like a child who is constantly testing his boundaries. Even Supreme Court Justice Scalia saw the massive overstepping of bounds, the stripping away of states’ sovereignty, and the dangers of the pride-filled gavel in the hands of the Bayou’s black robes. In his dissent on the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage decision he stated: “Hubris is sometimes defined as o’erweening pride; and pride, we know, goeth before a fall. With each decision of ours that takes from the people a question properly left to them ... we move one step closer to being reminded of our impotence.” (as reported by the LA Times)

Read the whole of Federalist 78; hear Hamilton declare later, “The courts must declare the sense of the law; and if they should be disposed to exercise WILL instead of JUDGMENT, the consequence would equally be the substitution of their pleasure to that of the legislative body. The observation, if it proved any thing, would prove that there ought to be no judges distinct from that body.

With usurped power, the court struck down the state marriage laws, single-handedly redefining the building block of a civilization. Social engineering from the bench attacks civilization at its fundamental core. Justice Scalia said that it violates “a principle even more fundamental than no taxation without representation: no social transformation without representation.”

Never content and ever growing out of control, the courts now (9th Circuit specifically)—according to Daniel Horowitz — “redefine the building block of a nation state, saying we no longer have the ability to self-determine those who come into our country and be part of our civilization and citizenry” by unconstitutionally telling us and the other two branches that we can’t control—even temporarily—who enters our beloved shores.

With audacity, they have attacked individual states. For example, look at Arizona, again according to Daniel Horowitz: “The Ninth Circuit has forced the state to give driver’s licenses to illegals, offer bail to the most violent criminal aliens, and has blocked the state from requiring proof of citizenship in order to register to vote.” Arizona’s legislature and the people had taken steps and passed legislation to protect their state, but the Ninth Circuit has left the legal citizens of Arizona defiled and defenseless, stomping on their sovereignty and their rights.

These black robes from the Bayou have taken our Constitutional Republic and turned it into a judicial oligarchy…but we’ve allowed them to do so.

With every breach of the Constitution that these out-of-control courts inflict upon one of the other branches, they prove that they have become “too big for their britches.” Instead of standing by and accepting what they do illegally, we must stand and insist that these courts be held accountable by their counterparts—that’s the way the system is supposed to work.

Daniel Horowitz, whom we’ve quoted repeatedly throughout this article—author of the book Stolen Sovereignty and numerous articles written for Conservative Review—gives several ways to rein in rogue courts, reminding us that Congress has the complete power to do so. We—you and I—are to hold Congress responsible for their actions or lack thereof.

As Mr. Horowitz makes clear in his article, “Does Congress not realize it has the complete power to rein in rogue courts?” “The lower federal courts don’t have to exist. ... If Congress wanted to abolish the lower courts overnight and reroute any litigation into state courts or make plaintiffs directly appeal to the Supreme Court (or any other newly-created panel), they have that authority.”

Another way to “drain the Bayou” would be to minimize the Circuit court’s geographical jurisdiction, not allow them to issue nation-wide injunctions, and not allow their rulings to be used as precedent. Congress, more or less, has a free hand in reining in these rogue courts. It’s time for Congress to dictate to the courts instead of allowing the courts to mandate whatever and on whomever they will.

One hard-hitting action would be to call for the impeachment of these rogue judges—judges like James Robart. Impeachment was designed to not only address criminal behavior but also to check the abuse of power. Even if not successfully impeached, no judge wants the hassle of impeachment or their name being associated with it. Read this article for more information on impeachment, including quotes and anecdotes from our Founders.

If you’re interested in other ways to rein in an out of control judiciary—read Daniel Horowitz’s informative article The Battle for the Courts, Part 2.

The judicial branch was created as part of a check and balances system, not to bully a U.S. President because they don’t like his politics, or to tie the hands of Congress because a judge wants to overstep his/her bounds.It most certainly wasn’t to hammer (or gavel) their own will over the will of the people, bringing “social transformation without representation”. Yet, that’s just what this branch is doing.

President Trump has every Constitutional right to impose a ban on immigration—many presidents have successfully done so before—without judicial interference.

The Executive branch and the Legislative branch need to work together as a check and balance against the Federal courts that are legislating from the bench, instead of ruling from the bench. The answer to draining the Bayou is in the Constitution itself (Particularly Article III). The Constitution isn’t broken; the problem lies in those who are breaking the Constitution. Let us repair the black-robed breach before it’s too late.

Most recently these courts have taken a shot at our Second Amendment too. Control must be regained before this nation completely loses all sense of right, wrong, and boundary. Read more about this here.

Make no mistake; this issue, so briefly discussed, should be one of our highest prayer concerns. If these courts are left to run amok, it may be the total undoing of CONSTITUTIONAL AMERICA!

Trevor Loudon, Producer of "The Enemies Within"

Most people assume that communism is a thing of the past; it either broke down with the Berlin Wall or fell with Russia. That’s just not the case, and there’s no more dangerous an enemy than one who is believed to be defeated or no longer a threat. Communism is very much alive and well in the thoughts of a great number of Americans, both common and influential. Unfortunately they don’t look at the realistic outcomes of this devastating ideology and the countries that it has destroyed. Trevor Loudon does. If you care about this country or just desire to be informed, this event is for you. Whether you’ve seen the film “Enemies Within” or not, don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear Trevor Loudon speak and to ask him questions about these important issues.
