Conservative Collapse here on the Road to Emmaus.
[COMMENT: Paul Weyrich has come around to see what
is happening in America, and WHY it has been happening, why the "enormous
efforts" of conservative ministries keep coming to nothing at all. They
have been undermining their own efforts by refusing to challenge the enemy at
its deeply vulnerable areas.
I mean refusing. Many people are today asking these
pseudo-conservative leaders why they are promoting the illusion of judicial
"activism" when the real problem has been executive
The judiciary has been a deliberate decoy to deflect attention
from the executive branch which is systematically dismantling our Constitution.
And behind it all has been (1) a socialist, globalist majority in Congress which
will not discipline the executive, as it has the power to do; and, (2) an
apathetic and brainwashed public which has lost the gumption to discipline
Congress. And behind all that huge mess is a Church, the supposed
conscience of the nation, which has lost its own conscience.
Until there is a significant spiritual renewal in America,
nothing significant will change. That means that we must recover our
Biblical worldview, politics, economy, churches, and personal spiritual life.
READ THE ARTICLE. Weyrich is no fool.
FROM PAUL WEYRICH'S WARNING TO AMERICA:
"I fear the
conservative elites are putting the final nail in our coffin. ...
They are foolishly handing absolute power to
anti-Judeo-Christian, anti-family ideologues."
"This is where the
trajectory of the post-constitutional 'pragmatism' undergirding
the 'conservative revolution' has taken us. ...if we continue
...we may reach the point of tyranny and persecution...."
A founder of the Reagan
'Conservatives are unwittingly aiding
destruction of America.'
I am neither an attorney nor an expert in Constitutional law. Others have
been good enough to say I am a good strategist. If so, then I would like to
share my perspective of the current state of the judiciary. I have listened
as a debate is occurring over the proper powers of the courts and the
tendency of some Americans to cede to the advocates of unrestrained judicial
power victories to which they are not entitled.
I am occasionally referred to as a "founder of the modern conservative
movement." Such an honor places upon me and others to whom such a
description applies a special duty to warn our fellow citizens. Americans
today are witnesses to the realization of the great fear of our Founding
Fathers: the passing away of government "of the people, by the people, for
the people," as President Abraham Lincoln stated, in the United States of
America. With respect to the courts, we need a revival of the rule of law
based upon the constitutional principles laid down by those who founded this
Our forefathers gave their lives to liberate us from the rule of a
British Parliament (and judges) unelected by the American colonists:
Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the
consent of the governed.... But when a long train
of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a
design to reduce them under absolute Despotism , it is their right,
it is their duty, to throw off such Government....
The grand formalities of American election rituals hide a glaring fact:
Americans can no longer claim that we are our own rulers in every
circumstance in which we are empowered to be.
Regardless of our votes, the defining judgments in our collective and
personal destinies often are made by persons whom the American people have
not elected to rule.
We gave judges their robes and gavels so that they might resolve
specific disputes between specific plaintiffs and defendants.
We never gave them authority to issue commands to our elected lawmakers,
forcing us down roads which we have not chosen to travel.
Judges have no constitutional authority to make laws or to amend
our national and state constitutions. They have no authority to redefine
words and concepts in our laws to mean what they and their ideological
partisans wish for them to mean.
To Americans of previous generations this was obvious and fundamental.
But for many in America today, this is meaningless, a mere technicality:
judges are supreme because, well, because they just are.
When several judges opined that there ought to be no more
prayer in American schools, lawyers, politicians and journalists told us
that after three centuries of prayer in our schools, judges had suddenly
"outlawed" it. Court opinions interpreting law and social custom
magically became the law itself.
After three centuries of Americans exercising their right to control
their communities as citizens and to keep pornography out of public view,
several judges opined that the Founding Fathers had given
pornographers a right to pollute us and our children, a "right" that
does not exist in the United States Constitution. They put us on a
course that has almost obliterated the ideal of fidelity of body, mind,
imagination and the heart, upon which marriage, family and child-rearing are
Nevertheless, lawyers, journalists and politicians announced that this
opinion was to be the new law -- though it had no
basis in the Constitution or in any law authorized by the American
people via their chosen lawmakers.
Likewise, judges -- acting on behalf of a tiny, anti-constitutional,
self-styled cultural "elite" dedicated to turning America into a dystopia --
opined that the American people may neither protect children from
violent murder in their mother's womb, nor outlaw sodomy, nor restrict their
civic blessing upon marriage to nature's definition of it, nor
ensure that parentless children are placed with parents as nature
defines them: one father and one mother.
Nor should I forget to mention judicial disregard for centuries of legal
and constitutional protection of private property when they provided (in
their Kelo opinion, the appearance of) legal sanction for powerful,
corrupt politicians lusting after other men's land or buildings. "Take what
you please," they said in essence. And this opinion about the meanng of
the law (we were told) was now the law. One hand washes the other.
Many of us received in shock and sadness the Goodridge v. the
Department of Public Health of Massachusetts opinion on homosexual
marriage. Why do self-styled "conservatives," lawyers, politician
and pundits among them, spread the assertion that judges have powers
that the American people have never given them?
The truth is that the ruthlessly enforced illusion of judicial supremacy
did not merely empower judges and disenfranchise the American people. It
made journalists, lawyers and clever politicians more influential
culturally. Most, after all, are of the same ideological bent as many
And those who were not, the "conservatives," played within the new
rules: judges' opinions are "the law" in the United States of America.
Success for conservatives under these spurious "rules" (conceding that
judges themselves -- not actual constitutions -- must be
obeyed) would have required the impossible:
- that Americans were paying sufficient attention, that they understood
how much is at stake and that they agreed upon the solution;
- a string of primary victories by candidates who fully grasp the fact
that judges have no authority to change our laws and who will aggressively
oppose all claims to the contrary;
- an unbroken series of triumphs by such constitutionalist candidates in
general elections, year after year;
- an unbroken series of nominations of judges who will interpret the law
and will reject the noxious and absurd myth that previous court opinions are
"the law of the land"; (Presidents Ronald W. Reagan and George H. W.
Bush gave us activists such as Sandra Day O'Connor, Anthony Kennedy and
- an unbroken series of Senate confirmations of originalist
- unwavering constitutionalism by originalist judges in their years on the
bench, withstanding daily assault by infuriated cultural "elites"
accustomed to using legally void and impotent court opinions as bulldozers
to deceive and enslave Americans via a-moral, anti-constitutional and
increasingly tyrannical judicial delusions.
Not a single signer of the Constitution (or of the Declaration of
Independence) would have taken seriously the purportedly "conservative" view
today that to restrain judges we need to replace them through attrition over
That view, in my opinion, guarantees a victory of the far left
because it implies that the judicial branch is the final authority on the
In his book and British Broadcasting Corporation series Civilization,
historian Sir Kenneth Clarke noted that after the dissolution of the Roman
Empire, scattered pockets of normalcy continued for a surprisingly long
time. How will we know, living in such "pockets of normalcy," when
our republic has collapsed? Has it already? Are we prisoners who still think
For the sake of this republic I urge my friends, fellow leaders and
Americans to emphatically repudiate the devastating myth that judges have
the power to make and redefine our laws.
We should do so rapidly and forcefully before our republic is replaced by
the irresistible tyranny of men and women who believe that nihilist elites
should make the rules and pass them to judges for formal announcement when
the time is ripe for the latest step into the post-rule of law, post-moral
Otherwise our "conservatism" will continue to be merely the rearguard for
subtle left-wing revolution.
The tragedy of how we have reached this point is that in our desire for
social acceptance and respectability among the anti-constitutional,
anti-rule of law, anti-Christian, anti-family nihilist left, "conservative"
elites have abandoned the core principles of our Constitution. We have
flouted the warnings of the likes of Thomas Jefferson, who wrote:
To consider the judges as the ultimate
arbiters of all constitutional questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine
indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.
...The Constitution has erected no such single
tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of
time and party, its members would become despots.
Alexander Hamilton was perhaps the strongest advocate of "judicial
review" -- the right of judges to express their opinions on our
laws and our Constitution.
But an opinion on the meaning of the Constitution is merely an advisory
opinion to the legislative and executive branches of government. Not even
Hamilton imagined that the right to opine is a power to rule.
Courts, he pointed out, intentionally have been given no means of
enforcing their opinions, noting that the executive and legislative
branches are not compelled to obey false or dubious opinions. Therefore, he
judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least
dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution. ...
judiciary...has no influence over either the sword or purse; no direction
either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no
active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither force nor
Abraham Lincoln acknowledged that court opinions were binding upon the
specific parties involved and "entitled to very high respect and
consideration...by all other departments of the government." But like the
Founding Fathers, he utterly rejected the myth that judges' opinions are the
law of the land:
the policy of the government, upon vital questions, affecting the whole
people, is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the
instant they are made, in ordinary litigation between parties, in personal
actions, the people will have ceased, to be their own rulers, having, to
that extent, practically resigned their government, into the hands of that
In the last century cultural elites created an illusion of
judicial power that would be unrecognizable to earlier Americans,
lawyers and laymen. After the American Revolution, the framers of the
Constitution rejected any judicial authority over the other
branches of government.
I fear the conservative elites are putting the final nail in our coffin.
I know these men. They mean well. They are not pursuing their view out of
malice. They believe what they are doing is right. Nor do I associate myself
with some of their critics who often are accusatory, judgmental and angry. I
look at results, and it seems to me that proponents of the status quo are
allowing the legal profession and the courts to impose moral and civil codes
which cannot pass federal and state legislatures.
They foolishly are handing absolute power to anti-Judeo-Christian,
This is where the trajectory of the post-constitutional
"pragmatism" undergirding the "conservative revolution" has taken us. The
story is not yet complete, but if we continue on this trajectory we may
reach the point of tyranny and persecution. History reveals this to be true.
Many of those with whom I have worked for years are unwittingly
aiding the far left in the destruction of America.
It is time for our presidents, governors, legislatures and prominent
citizens to call the bluff of impotent judges as Jefferson did and
to ask them, as President Andrew Jackson did, how they will enforce their
impotent opinions. The myth of judicial supremacy cannot justify governors
violating state and federal constitutions, their own oaths of office or the
sovereignty of the American people. Look at the way so-called "gay marriage"
has been imposed by judicial fiat, running ruthlessly over elected
legislatures and the will of the people.
The Massachusetts Constitution contains the quintessential statement
of the American form of government:
of suspending the laws, or the execution of the laws, ought never to be
exercised but by the legislature...." (Part the First, Article XX.)
people...are not controllable by any other laws than those to which their
constitutional representative body have given their consent." (Part the
First, Article X.)
judicial shall never exercise the legislative and executive powers, or
either of them: to the end it may be a government of laws and not of men."
(Part the First, Article XXX.)
laws which have heretofore been adopted, used and approved...shall still
remain and be in full force, until altered or repealed by the
legislature...." (Part the Second, Article VI.)
Americans must debunk the Orwellian lie that has obliterated
self-government in the United States and acknowledge Lincoln's words at
Gettysburg in 1863:
are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or
any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.... It is
for us the living...to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before
us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause
for which they gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly
resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation,
under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government
of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from
Read the shocking letter in which Weyrich and other conservative
leaders asked Mitt Romney to reverse his illegal orders that violated the
state constitution by imposing homosexual "marriage" under the pretense that
he was "forced" to by judges.
You will no longer doubt that the "conservative" elites are foolishly
helping militant liberals "put the last nail in our coffin" as Weyrich has
Joint Letter to Mitt Romney from Conservative Leaders
Affirmed by law professors and attorneys, the evidence is irrefutable: Mitt
Romney illegally imposed homosexual "marriage," blaming activist judges for
the "conservative" establishment -- National Review, Weekly Standard,
American Spectator, Human Events, Focus On the Family, Tony Perkins' Family
Research Council, Limbaugh, Hannity, Gary Bauer, attys. Sekulow, Coulter,
Hewitt, French and Bopp, Glendon and others aggressively propagate Romney's

Constitution, cited below.
With flattery and bribes, Romney bought and
