Federal judges vs. the will of the people
Posted By Devvy Kidd On 02/11/2005 @ 1:00 am In Commentary | Comments Disabled
This country belongs to the people. The will of the people is reflected through the ballot box when citizens of the 50 independent republics vote for individuals to fill elected offices. Each office at every level of government has a specific job description and function. The state legislature is basically the overseer for the state itself, but it’s ability to legislate is checked by the U.S. and state constitutions.
Over the past several decades, the will of the people has been stomped on by federal judges who thumb their nose at the law and the voters. Consider the following examples.
Proposition 187 in California was a 1994 ballot measure which sought to restrict benefits for illegal immigrants. Illegal aliens have no constitutional rights because they are not citizens. The only action they are entitled to is immediate deportation. The sovereign citizens of the state of California passed this ballot measure. In a New York second, U.S. District Judge Mariana Pfaelzer held most parts of Prop. 187 unconstitutional. In her final ruling, Pfaelzer rejected California’s attempt to regulate immigration, which she said is the federal government’s responsibility.
While it is true that immigration is the jurisdiction of the federal government, there is no intention to stop the massive invasion by illegals from Washington, D.C. Last year, the cost of supporting illegals in California was $10.5 billion dollars. The people of California are under no legal or moral obligation to be taxed into poverty to support criminals and that’s exactly what illegals who smuggle themselves across the border are: criminals, just like a bank robber or arsonist. They broke the law to enter the country.
The decision by Judge Pfaelzer incensed the voters of California who maintain that upholding immigration law is the only way to keep criminals and terrorists from crossing the border, not to mention the massive burden to the taxpayers of California to support more than 3 million illegals in our state. However, certain Hispanic leaders have a different agenda.
Mario Obledo, founding member/former national director of Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and former California secretary health and welfare stated on a popular talk-radio show:
We’re going to take over all the political institutions in California. In five years, the Hispanics are going to be the majority population of this state and anyone who doesn’t like it should leave.
Jose Angel Gutierrez, professor, University of Texas, Arlington and founder of the La Raza Unida political party:
We have an aging white America … They are dying … We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.
Augustin Cebada, information minister of Brown Berets, militant para-military soldiers of Aztlan shouting at U.S. citizens at an Independence Day rally in Los Angeles:
… Brown Berets, we’re here today to show L.A., show the minority people here, the Anglo-Saxons, that we are here, the majority, we’re here to stay. We do the work in this city, we take care of the spoiled brat children … We’re here in Westwood … to show white Anglo-Saxon Protestant L.A., the few of you who remain, that we are the majority, and we claim this land as ours, it’s always been ours, and we’re still here, and none of the talk about deporting.
If anyone’s going to be deported, it’s going to be you! … Get out! We are the future. You’re old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you – leave like beaten rats. You old white people, it is your duty to die. Right now, we’re already controlling those elections, whether it’s by violence or nonviolence. Through love of having children we’re going to take over.
Proposition 200 was passed by the voters in Arizona this past November. Arizona is a state suffering massive financial and law enforcement problems because of illegals. The people passed Prop. 200 which requires all Arizonans to prove citizenship when registering to vote and show ID when voting in person. It requires that state and local government employees check the immigration papers of Arizonans seeking public benefits.
The election was no sooner over when the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, or MALDEF, ran to court and U.S. District Judge David C. Bury temporarily blocked enforcement over the issue of constitutionality. Fortunately, the block was lifted, but not after another ton of money was spent fighting these special-interest groups who care nothing for the law, only advancing their agenda.
Out-of-control judges is one of the major problems plaguing America and why the fraudulent ratification of the 17th Amendment must be resolved by the States. Congress has refused to oust federal judges legislating from the bench or catering to special-interest groups. Appointed U.S. senators – as was the mandate by those who created the federal government – would give the states the clout they need to have their appointed senators move to remove bad judges. It’s called “states’ rights” and gives more local control for the sovereign people of the states.
For those who wish to get a comprehensive understanding on this critical issue, I respectfully recommend you read: “The 17th Amendment” by Nathan Lehman and “Amplifying the 10th Amendment” by John MacMullin, which also succinctly covers the 17th Amendment issue.
The fraudulent ratification of the 17th Amendment is the key to solving so many cancers eating away at our Republic. Even Zell Miller, a former U.S. senator, agrees this is the only way to restore the balance of power in Congress and for the states. Now it’s up to the people to force this issue with their state legislatures.
