Supreme Court Does Not Make Laws

Description

We hear an outrageous myth: "Supreme Court has ruled. This is the law of the land". Supreme Court a part of the JUDICIAL BRANCH of our government. Legislative powers are defined in: Art I. Sec. 1. Paragraph 1, Sentence 1 of the Constitution:"All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives."If All legislative powers are vested in Congress how much legislative power does the Supreme Court have? Supreme Court is nine political appointees. They were not elected by the people. Our constitution provides that laws will be made by legislators, who are elected by the people in legislative branch. Read it again BUT Now let us direct our attention to the words "herein granted". Have we forgotten who it was that GRANTED those legislative Powers to that Congress of the United States? The sovereign States existed before the federal government existed. The sovereign States created the federal government as servant, to whom these sovereign states voluntarily delegated 21 duties, which were defined as "enumerated powers". "Enumerated powers" are in Article. I. Section. 8 of Constitution. Federal government was also told, quite clearly, that there were no powers GRANTED in any other areas, other than those 21 "enumerated powers". This clear reservation is found in the 10th amendment of The U.S. Constitution: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. The first 10 amendments also known as the "Bill of Rights". The "Bill of Rights" is a list of PROHIBITIONS placed upon the servant federal government, by its creator, the states. The 10th amendment patchs any leaks in the clearly limited powers which the sovereign States had authorized to their newly created servant. 10th amendment says that the federal government IS NOT GRANTED any powers other than those that are enumerated in the constitution. The States created the federal government, and authorized the federal government to perform a few well defined, and very limited functions. The federal government is prohibited from doing ANYTHING ELSE. The Constitution is NOT whatever the Supreme Court says that it is. The Supreme Court is what the Constitution says that it is. Governer Mark Sanford told the federal government that South Carolina would not implement the Real ID Act. The Real ID Act was not implemented nationwide. Suppose that the Congress were to pass a law ordering that all churches were to be closed & Supreme Court then ruled that this law was constitutional. Would we obey that law? Suppose that you were sitting on a jury in 1850, deciding the fate of a person being tried for violating the Fugitive Slave Act by helping a runaway slave? The Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 mandated that states to which escaped slaves fled, were obligated to return them to the slave masters upon their discovery and subjected persons, who helped runaway slaves to criminal sanctions. In 1854, the Wisconsin Supreme Court declared the Fugitive Slave Act to be unconstitutional, without regard to the rulings of the federal government. The Vermont legislature approved the "Habeas Corpus Law," requiring Vermont judicial and law enforcement officials to assist captured fugitive slaves. "Jury nullification" took effect as local juries acquitted people who were accused of violating the Fugitive Slave Act. Ultimately the Fugitive Slave Act was not enforced in any state where slavery was not condoned. At one time America was the force for freedom, that punished people who obeyed immoral laws of tyrants. The NUREMBERG trials are just one example. "We were just obeying orders" was the common excuse at Nuremberg. How did that work? Watch the old news reels, and you will see them laid out of slabs with the nooses still around their necks.
