Whether it was the recall of a pair of gun grabbing state legislators in Colorado, the successes and near misses of several TEA Party candidates or the defeat of Eric Cantor it seems that a “sleeping giant” is beginning to rouse. The feeling right now in the political winds reminds me of Admiral Yamamotos’ prediction for Japan at the beginning of WWII. If America could not be defeated in the first six months, Japan would lose the war. Progressive liberal democrats have had a lot more than six years to destroy the America my grandfather, father and I served. Even so, I believe there is hope.
Some fifty years ago liberals realized they could not win elections with their ideas alone. They promptly engaged in a very clever, two-prong long-term strategy. Rather than attempt to win in the arena of ideas they began the slow process of taking over the public education system. Beginning with the colleges and now reaching into the first years of school their program of indoctrination went mostly unnoticed for decades. The results? Today in some schools kindergartners are taught that homosexuality is “normal”.
Liberals are an incredibly persistent bunch. They thought (sadly incorrectly so) that Americans would soon see through their assault on education. To cover their bases they also engaged in the same kind of takeover in the judiciary. This has given us decisions like Rowe v Wade (even lawyers who supported the concept thought the court ruled in error), Kilo (giving the government the right to give your property to another private entity) and the newly acquired civil right of same sex marriage. It has gotten so bad in the courts now that some justices actually use foreign law to influence and justify decisions in American cases.
Over the last twenty years the progressives, liberals and democrats (there is no significant difference between the three) have managed to insert ideologically driven judges onto every bench you can imagine. It is time common sense replaced those judges who view their way as the only way and will creatively interpret or outright invent the law to suit their demented, progressive ideology.
When a judge decides that a sailor deployed on a submarine in the Pacific Ocean can be held in contempt of court because he cannot appear at a hearing and that judge is willing to issue an arrest warrant for the sailor, that judge needs to be impeached. Not counseled, not sent to sensitivity training, just impeached. Further, I would submit, that judge needs to be publicly and politely shamed. Note I did not say humiliated. Nor did I say disclose the judges home address or phone number over the internet or twitter. Nor did I say physically attack the judge. Note that I didn’t say attack or harass the judges family. We do not need to act like liberals to defeat liberals. I said shamed. There is a difference and if you don’t know what that difference is you need to learn it before reading the rest of this column.
This judges behavior should be spotlighted as blindingly as possible. This judge, knowing full well the sailor is deployed on a submarine, insists on abusing an American serviceman. This judge obviously hates the military. Their picture should be plastered everywhere asking why they do not like American heroes. There is no need for our “side” to be obnoxious. Simply telling the truth will suffice. There should be newspaper ads, bus signs, billboards, flyers in the judges district, radio and TV spots. Every day the courtroom should be filled with people in US Navy uniforms sitting quietly and staring at the judge. Outside of the sanctity of the judges own home there should be no respite. Everywhere the judge turns there should be reminders of this folly. This action should be repeated as often as it takes to return sanity and constitutional law to every bench in the land.
Those readers who have been paying attention over the last six years will recognize the tactic. It comes from one of little Barry’s idols, the freedom hating, America hating Saul Alinsky. It works like this, “pick your target…freeze it…isolate it…” Ask any conservative, they can tell you exactly how it works.
These actions will also serve as a warning to others. It takes only moderate effort to launch an effective guerrilla advertising campaign. The overall effect may be mixed as in some “blue” parts of the country ideology will always trump truth and reason. Truly ideologically driven judges will not be moved. Impeachment or replacement is the only solution for them. However, there are a large number of “casually progressive” judges. These are the ones that “go along to get along.” These are some of the judges who rule in favor of “gay marriage’ so they can be “on the right side of history.”
Judges of the above nature need to abandon the bench and be honest with both us and themselves. They are politicians without the courage to debate their ideas in the public arena. Since they lack the courage of their convictions it is up to us to send them packing.
