America's Culture War and How to Fight It: Curbing the Courts, VII.


The last time I read the U.S. Constitution (which was quite recently), the document still began with the words, "We, the People of the United States . . . ." If this declaration means anything today, it means that the American people have a right to know — necessity of knowing — the basic philosophical and constitutional positions of their leaders — before those leaders are chosen. It also means that we have the right — and necessity — of exercising oversight of our leaders on an ongoing basis.

This is true even, or especially, with appointed federal judges. Reconstructionist (i.e., "activist/liberal") judges are leading the assault on America's Judeo-Christian foundations in our nation's Culture War. (This "Culture War" is a climactic battle between the Judeo-Christian and Humanistic worldviews.) Indeed, these Reconstructionist federal judges (particularly U. S. Supreme Court Justices) have changed the nature of the courts, the Constitution, and the culture in this War.

Effectively fighting this Culture War has been the theme of our Court Watch Briefings throughout 2011. In this issue, we provide a sample of one of the most important weapons available to us Constitutionalists, usable at virtually any time but especially as we approach a crisis election. This weapon is a Sample Resolution on an area of constitutional law where Reconstructionist judges have inflicted the most severe damage on the Constitution and the culture — religious liberties. This Resolution can be used both for an election and at other times when petition-type expressions of our views and values are appropriate. Much more of this material is available directly from the Blackstone Institute office. The Resolution is printed below as p. 2, making it more usable for us, the voters. Lest we question the Congressional power to curb the courts, we should remember the words of the U.S. Supreme Court itself in 1845:

The Courts, from our earliest constitutional history have repeatedly recognized this Congressional power. In 1845, the Supreme Court wrote that . . . in the doctrines so often ruled in this court . . . the judicial power of the United States, although it has its origin in the Constitution, is (except in enumerated instances [i.e., the Supreme Court's negligible "original jurisdiction"]) dependent for its distribution and organization, and for the modes of its exercise, entirely upon the action of Congress . . . . (Casey v. Curtis)


Arm yourself with the power of knowledge by mastering the information and tools available from the Blackstone Institute in our unique, compelling online multimedia studies; especially relevant to this Briefing is:

Sample Resolution on the Constitution, the Courts,
And the Public Acknowledgment of God


WHEREAS, the Constitution of the United States is, and must be, the Supreme Law of the Land, superior to all court decisions;

WHEREAS, the Constitution must be interpreted in the light of its text, constitutional tradition, and its Judeo-Christian foundation;

WHEREAS, the Constitution contains nothing that requires a "wall of separation between church and state";

WHEREAS, a total separation of religion and law/government is impossible;

WHEREAS, the Framers of the Constitution did not intend that a total separation be attempted;

WHEREAS, the English Common Law in which American law is rooted was Christianized;

WHEREAS, the U.S. Supreme Court does not require a total separation between "church and state";

WHEREAS, Reconstructionist (activist/liberal) federal judges have blatantly assaulted these fundamental Constitutional principles and have re-written them under the guise of interpreting them;

AND WHEREAS, We, the people, still possess the ultimate human political power in this nation and have delegated to the President and Congress in the Constitution very broad powers to establish and empower national courts;

BE IT RESOLVED THAT ________ actively supports

  1. the Congressional denial of jurisdiction to courts to hear challenges to either the verbal or non-verbal acknowledgement of God — i.e., "God" meaning the Deity central to the Ten Commandments - on public property and in official utterances such as (but not limited to) the Pledge of Allegiance and national motto.
  2. Congressional refusal to recognize, fund, or otherwise enforce court decisions that prohibit either the verbal or non-verbal acknowledgement of God — i.e., "God" meaning the Deity central to the Ten Commandments — on public property and in official utterances such as (but not limited to) the Pledge of Allegiance and national motto.
