Dark Skies, Smiling At Me [Update: Correction]

15 June 2011 @ 10:05

I think it safe to say that most, if not all, of us on the Right were happy to hear of the decision of Wisconsin’s Supreme Court to uphold the law that effectively ends collective bargaining for the majority of public employees in Cheeseland.

However, I would be remiss — and you would be disappointed in me, I’m sure — if I did not see the dark lining in the silver cloud.

Jeff Goldstein sees it too, so I let him go first:

I should add… that I’m greatly troubled by the 4-3 vote. This means that 3 justices, liberals all, I’m sure, were willing to rule to uphold what was an unashamed, barely-disguised instance of the worst form of partisan judicial activism. Which further suggests that liberal justices cannot be counted on to do more than simply work back from the decision that want to reach, and using every rhetorical and hermeneutic massaging that they can to justify how the text, when looked at through new contexts and with the right emanations and penumbras[*], can get them there.

One vote stands between the rule of law and tyranny backed by a compliant, partisan judiciary. That’s the message the liberals will take from this. Meaning, they’ll have to try harder to stack those courts.

Let’s face the facts: every judge on every court at every level of government in the land who is of the Left cannot be trusted to carry out their oaths. They all have sworn allegiance to a philosophy that believes there all standards are relative, subject to interpretations that fit the needs of the many and the moment. For them all law is ‘living’ and, therefore, subject to change and adaptation. One could say they believe in a Social Darwinist approach to the law: the needs and whims of those in power take precedence — it is survival of the Elitist.

Sadly, it has come to the point where our elected representatives, those that believe in The Constitution and all it stands for and who regard the Rule Of Law as sacred, must be prepared to defy court decisions. Hating to invoke that pinko Jefferson psychopathic democracy-lover Andrew Jackson, I am compelled to quote him from one of the few times he was right [and Right], and say to you: those representatives must adopt the attitude to the Leftist and Leftist-ruling judges that TJ Crazy Andy did, at one point, with [my hero] John Marshall: ‘Mr. Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it’.

NO COMPROMISE
NO QUARTER
NO RETREAT
NO SURRENDER

WOLVERINES!

UPDATE CORRECTION at 1659…

Thanks to Richard McEnroe and Adobe Walls for pointing out my error in attributing the quote in the last paragraph above originally to that notorious foie-gras-loving T. Jefferson; in fact, it was said by Andrew ‘Anger Management Issues’ Jackson.  Apologies.

    Yes Jackson.
    Mr Goldstien is correct,if we can actualy get the retoration started through the ballot box some method of removing activist jurists and replacing them with men and woman of principle will have to be arrived at. If as is more likely, the restoration begins (or ends) with a cataclysmic colapse……

    Richard/Adobe: Thanks for the heads-up on my error. Jefferson did make a comment after Marbury was handed down, but it most certainly was not that one.

    To paraphrase Bill Shakes: ‘First, we kill all the judges’.
