This list is not exhaustive and some are taken from my book "40 Things to Teach Your Children Before You Die: The Simple American Truths About Life, Family & Faith." Print em out. Put em on your fridge and discuss them daily over breakfast with your kids and help inoculate them from the Leftist lies and propaganda so prevalent in much of our culture and society today. 1. You're not a "global citizen." If you were born in the United States of America or are a legal U.S. citizen, you are a United States citizen not bound by any other Constitution than the United States Constitution. 2. The climate is always "changing." It's called weather. The reason you don't hear about "man made global warming" anymore is that it has been thoroughly de-bunked. The major reason the earth's temperature heats/cools is due to solar activity. During periods of increased solar activity the earth warms and vice-versa. "Climate change" initiatives are really just efforts to institute higher taxes and regulations to control the people ultimately for the purpose of establishing a global New World Order. 3. There are only 2 types of humans God created. Men and women. Your sex (or gender) is determined by your chromosomal makeup. Males have XY and females have XX. There is no such thing as a "transgendered" person. A man who puts on lipstick and a wig has become a "cross dresser" but is still a man. Women who act/dress like men are still women. Boys should always use the men's room and girls should always use the girl's room. 4. Our nation was not founded by secularists. The original founders, the Pilgrims and Puritans, were God fearing people whose main desire was to live in a nation where they could freely worship Jesus Christ. While many of the Framers of the Constitution were not Christians, our nation was explicitly founded on Judeo-Christian values, beliefs and principles. To the extent America returns to those founding principles and beliefs will largely determine whether we can ever become "great again." 5. Truth is not relative. God has defined all truth and apart from His Transcendent Divinely Revealed Word, everyone does what is right in their own eyes. Humans become their own gods. Man centered (humanistic) societies that have rejected God's Word have been the most murderous and barbaric nations in the history of the world (Nazi Germany, Communist China/Russia, etc...) 6. "Social Justice" is another term for Socialism. And Socialism is always wrong because it is based on the belief that it is ok to covet, steal, and re-distribute other people's "stuff" for the general benefit of the "community." 7. God has defined, established and ordained marriage. It is the exclusive union of one man and one woman and the natural human family is the first, oldest, and most important form of government God ever created. No majority of judges, legislators or voters can re-define what God Himself has defined. All other types of "marriage" are legally null and void since they violate God's definition. 8. Courts don't make law. Courts can issue opinions on individual cases before it, but court opinions are only binding on the individual plaintiffs and defendants in the case. Only the people directly or via their elected representatives can make, alter or amend laws, statutes or Constitutions. Any law or court opinions contrary to God's Law is no law at all. It is legally null and void and must be ignored and rejected by all civil magistrates at every branch and level of government. 9. There is only 1 race of people. The human race. People have different skin colors and come from different parts of the world but all humans are originally descended from the Original First Family (Adam and Eve.) Efforts to introduce race ("affirmative action," "race based preferences," "white privilege," etc...) are merely efforts to divide and conquer. 10. There is only one way to heaven. Through faith alone, by God's grace alone, in Christ alone. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father in heaven but through Me." (John 14:6) Is He your Lord and Savior?
Common Words, Phrases & Terms The Left Has Twisted & Distorted That Christians & Conservatives Should Never Use (The “Dirty Dozen”)August 9th, 2016
Proverbs 12:6, "The words of ungodly men are crafty; but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them." Hosea 6:5, "...I have slain them by the words of my mouth:" Psalms 12:6, "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times."In his book, "1984," George Orwell warned that in the future words would be redefined and weaponized by the Left in their effort to establish a tyrannical dictatorship where government controlled and engineered group-think and consensus (called "newspeak" in the book) would replace individual thought and creativity. Despots and dictators have always known that those who control the meaning of words largely control the thoughts, attitudes, and behavior of society. In fact, the first sin ever committed resulted from God's Word being twisted, distorted and manipulated when the Serpent (Satan) deceived Eve by making her question God's clear and unambiguous command not to eat from the tree of Good and Evil. Here is a partial list of the most common words, terms and phrases that the Left has re-defined, twisted and distorted for the ultimate purpose of deceiving the masses and ultimately controlling them. Sadly, many self-professing Christians and conservatives frequently use many of these words and phrases and unwittingly perpetuate the deception the distortion of these words and phrases leads to. The purpose of this article is to list the most common words, terms and phrases as well as their real meanings in context with hopes that, in the future, Christians and conservatives use the proper words and terminology. Words, indeed, matter. May we all chose ours carefully. Here is what I refer to as the "Dirty Dozen" which is of course not an exhaustive list but the 12 I consider to be the most important to be aware of. 1. Democrats (A word used to describe those who belong to the Democrat Party and who subscribe to a democratic political ideology/philosophy. The problem with this term is that those in the modern day Democrat Party are mostly hard-core Communists and Socialists. When referring to modern day Democrats I recommend using the term, "Democrat-Socialists." 2. Democracy- A word often used to describe America's system of government. I cringe every time I hear any conservative use this term in this manner. America was initially established to be a Constitutional Republic. Pure Democracies are characterized by majority rule and often lead to "mob rule" as was the case in 18th century Revolutionary France. And while our nation has devolved into a "mob rule" Democracy in many ways we were not originally intended to be one. When referring to our form of government I recommend using the term, "Constitutional Republic." 3. Progressives- A word often used to describe "liberals" and "Democrats" to convey that their political philosophy and objectives represent progress and, after all, who isn't for progress? The reality, however, is that the "progressive" ideas they are talking about include killing pre-born babies, redefining marriage, criminalizing Christianity, and open borders. Instead of using the term progressive, I recommend the more accurate terms, "Democrat-Socialists," "Globalists" "Statists" or "Neo-Marxists." 4. Pro-choice- Word used by the Left to describe any one who believes abortion (killing a pre-born baby) is a constitutionally protected right. In reality, however, those who call themselves "pro-choice" are really just "pro-abortion" since the baby inside them has no choice in the matter. Instead of calling those in favor of abortion-on-demand "pro-choice" I recommend calling them "Pro-aborts." 5. Legal-Democrat-Socialists use this word to describe anything that either a majority of legislators or voters votes for, or, alternatively, that any court rules in favor of. Again, Leftists believe "majority rules"/"might makes right." The truth, however, is that for anything to be legal it must never violate the plain words of either the Constitution and, more importantly, the Divinely Revealed Word of God. For example, many on the Left (and far too many on the Right) will claim that "same-sex marriage" is legal because a court issued an opinion (Goodridge, Obergefell) saying that it is unconstitutional to prohibit people of the same-sex from marrying one another. But since no majority of voters, legislators or jurists possess the authority to re-define what God Himself has explicitly instituted, defined and ordained (i.e., that marriage is the exclusive union of one man and one woman) "same-sex marriage" can never be "legal." 6. "The court legalized..."- This is a phrase I hear repeated frequently by Leftists and far too many conservatives and Christians who have all been taught the lie that courts can make law and that court opinions super-cede legitimately enacted laws, statutes and Constitutions. The main problem with this phrase ("the court legalized") of course is that courts (judges) don't possess the legal, moral or enumerated constitutional authority to make, amend or "strike down" any laws, statutes or Constitutions. They can issue administrative opinions on individual cases before them that are binding only on the two parties but it is a blatant lie to assert that a court opinion becomes the "law of the land" the very second it is issued. Suggested replacement phrase: "The court issued an opinion..." 7. "Separation of Church and State"- Term used by the Left to (falsely) convey that there can never be any mention of God or His Word in any public institution and that the 1st Amendment guarantees a "separation of church and state." The only problem is that the 1st Amendment guarantees "freedom of religion" and not "freedom from religion" and that, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." The phrase "of church and state" was originally used by Thomas Jefferson to mollify the concerns of the Danbury (Connecticut) Baptists that the federal government would establish a national church but in no way even remotely implied that there could never be any Christian religious practice or influence in public/government institutions. The term "separation of church and state" does appear in a Constitution. The former Soviet Union's (article 124). 8. "Radical Islam"- This is a term used by Leftists to "falsely" imply that normal (i.e.,non-radical) Islam is peaceful. But the truth is, that for anybody who is even remotely familiar with the explicit and imperative teachings of the Koran and Hadiths that Islam is inherently radical (i.e., that it promotes violence, destruction and death to all who refuse to submit to Islam.) There is only Islam. Radical Islam IS Islam! Instead of referring to those who commit acts of terrorism who shout Allahu Akbar "radical Muslims" or "radical Islamists" call them what they are..."Islamists" "Muslim Jihadists" or "Islamic Jihadists." 9. Gay-The word "gay" used to mean a general feeling of "happiness" that has been redefined by the Leftists to describe a man who is attracted to and has sex with other men or a woman who is attracted and sex with other women. Suggested replacement words/terms, "homosexuals", "same-sex attracted people" etc... 10. "Traditional Marriage"- Term used to describe marriage between one man and one woman. The only problem with this term is that the word "traditional" conveys that marriage is based on the "traditions of men" when in reality, marriage was originally defined, ordained and instituted by God Almighty Himself. Whenever Christians and conservatives use the phrase "traditional marriage" they falsely perpetuate this fallacy. Suggested word replacement: Marriage. 11. Transvestite- Term used to describe a male who has become a female and vice-versa. The main problem with this is that God has only created 2 types of human persons. Chicks and dudes:-) Males and females who have the equipment and DNA/chromosomal make up to prove it. Men such as Bruce Jenner who claim they are now women still possess the chromosomal make up of a man and can never be a woman no matter how much lipstick they put on themselves. Suggested word replacement: Cross dresser. 12. "States Rights"- States don't have rights. People do. Proponents of "states rights" often invoke the 10th Amendment which states, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Nowhere in the 10th Amendment is there any provision for any rights for the states. Rather, it recognizes that states have certain powers, an ability to do certain things. Even the 9th Amendment restricts rights to "the people" and not states. "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” Instead of using the improper and inaccurate term "states rights," conservatives and Christians should instead use the terms "checks and balances" and "federalism" both of which stipulate that the power of the government at both the state and federal levels is limited by the rights of individuals. When the federal government enacts laws that are unconstitutional, the states have the authority and duty to reject those laws to protect the rights of the people. Conversely, when individual states enact laws contrary to legitimately enacted federal laws that are in keeping with the Constitution, the federal government possesses the authority and duty to intervene, again, on behalf of the people of that particular state.
The Supreme Court issued an opinion today that a Texas law requiring abortionists be hospital licensed to be unconstitutional. Reagan appointee Anthony Kennedy (the gift the keeps on giving) joined the other 4 leftists on the court in their majority opinion (authored by Steven Breyer) that:
We agree with the District Court that the surgical-center requirement, like the admitting-privileges requirement, provides few, if any, health benefits for women, poses a substantial obstacle to women seeking abortions, and constitutes an "undue burden" on their constitutional right to do so.The majority opinion was correct. But for all the wrong reasons. The Texas law wasn't unconstitutional because of the ludicrous requirement that baby butchers be properly credentialed by hospitals. The Texas law was unconstitutional because there is no Constitutional right to murder pre-born human persons at any stage of development since Roe v Wade is not the "law of the land" and never has been and allowing any type of abortion-related "procedure" violates the inalienable right to life for all innocent human persons from conception to natural death per the explicit and imperative requirements of the 5th and 14th Amendments to the United States Constitution which guarantees that no state shall violate "due process" and "equal protection of the laws" for any person without exception. No state possesses the authority to alienate inalienable rights. What is so sad is that so many self-described "constitutional conservatives" swallow and perpetuate the toxic liberal lie of Judicial Supremacy (i.e., that court opinions are the "law of the land" the very instant they are issued and must be obeyed, no matter how immoral, wicked or unconstitutional, by the other two superior branches.) And if you doubt the Founders originally designed the judiciary to be the "weakest of the 3 branches" read "Federalist 78" by Alexander Hamilton. The bottom line is that, ultimately, the Governor of Texas, Republican Greg Abbott, is the chief law enforcement officer of the state of Texas and is primarily responsible for ensuring that the Federal and Texas state Constitutions' "equal protection" and "due process" guarantees be faithfully enforced and applied to every innocent human person in the state of Texas (no matter how tiny)...without exception! Babies are dying daily in Texas because Governor Abbott daily permits it (as do all 49 other state governors). We should expect immoral, illegal and anti-Constitutional opinions from the (majority) leftist Supreme Court. But is it too much to expect that self-professing "pro-life constitutional conservative Christians" such as Abbott actually abide by their oath and DO THEIR JOB especially when it comes to protecting and defending the most sacred right all human beings possess? The right to their own lives?
"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." (Thomas Jefferson)
“...the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution. … [T]he 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 WILL..." (Alexander Hamilton)
“..if 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 eminent tribunal.” (Abraham Lincoln)
It's great that Trump has pledged to roll back Obamacare, build a wall and place a temporary moratorium on Muslim immigration (which should be permanent)but here are 3 questions I'd like to hear him answer that are infinitely more vital... 1. As president will you ignore/reject all unconstitutional court opinions such as Roe and Obergefell since court opinions are not the "law of the land" and since courts don't make law? 2. As president will your justice department investigate and prosecute Planned Parenthood for killing babies and selling their body parts? 3. As president will you reject immoral, unconstitutional, and legally null and void Roe v Wade and enforce and restore the God given right to life for ALL innocent human persons (from conception to natural death) without exception per the explicit requirements of the 5th and 14th Amendments of the United States Constitution per your sworn oath as Governor Huckabee pledged to do in the 1st Fox News debate? In other words, will you or will you not END the Abortion Holocaust in America? Or will you allow it to continue unabated?
At the New Hampshire GOP debate last night, all the GOP candidates claimed to be "pro-life with exceptions" (i.e., life of mother, rape and incest, etc...). Some, such as Marco Rubio even pledged to sign legislation banning all abortions except the life and health of the mother. Unfortunately, not one of the candidates gave the right answer regarding the proper duty of the president regarding abortion (child murder). Not one single candidate explained what the one and only moral, legal and constitutional duty of the chief law enforcement officer of the United States is. The president has the duty to ignore/reject Roe (and all other unconstitutional court opinions) and enforce the pre-existent God given right to life for ALL innocent human persons in every state that fails to do so per the explicit provisions of the 5th and 14th Amendment's equal protection and due process guarantees. WITHOUT EXCEPTION! There is never a case when a physician ever has to intentionally murder a pre-born baby to preserve the life of the mother. Even C Everett Koop admitted that before Congress and I document it in my book "Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies." The physician/obstetrician has a duty to attempt to preserve the life of both the mother and the child. Unfortunately many "pro-life" Republicans perpetuate this leftist talking point to make themselves appear to be less extreme and and more moderate and reasoned on the issue. Sadly, (at this point) none of the GOP candidates will abide by the oath to protect the God given right to life for ALL and end the Abortion Holocaust in America as Governor Huckabee has pledged to do. Even Reagan was derelict in his duty to enforce the 5th and 14th Amendments allowing millions of tiny babies to be murdered in 8 years he was chief law enforcement officer... Hoping and praying at least one candidate will pledge to ignore Roe and enforce the 5th and 14th Amendments and end the Abortion Holocaust in America that has taken the lives of 60,000,000 tiny babies in our country.
1. We need to end the Abortion Holocaust and as president I will enforce the 5th and 14th amendments if individual states fail to do so. We can't "make America great again" as long as we allow the most innocent among us to be murdered in cold blood with the full consent and funding of our government. The God-given right to life is the most fundamental right human beings possess and as president I will do everything in my power to restore the Rule of Law and the Right to Life for ALL innocent human persons. 2. The Supreme Court isn't the Supreme Being and court opinions aren't law. And as president I will not enforce any immoral, illegal and unconstitutional court opinion such as Roe, Windsor and Obergefell. Judicial Supremacy, the belief that Rule of Judges=Rule of Law and that the president, Congress and every individual state must always obey every Supreme Court opinion the very moment one is issued is a toxic liberal lie that we must expose and extinguish and as president I will take the lead in doing so! 3. God defined, ordained and instituted marriage as the exclusive union of one man and one woman and the natural human family is the foundation for all healthy, virtuous and prosperous societies. America can't be great unless she is good. And that begins with the preservation of the family. As president I will call for Congress to pass a Constitutional marriage amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman in accordance with God's definition and will call for all state governors to cease from (illegally) authorizing the issuance of marriage licences to same-sex couples since Obergefell isn't law and since any law (or court opinion) contrary to God's Law is no law at all (legally null and void).
How America Could Restore Constitutional 3 Branch Government and The Rule of Law Virtually Overnight…September 27th, 2015
Many are celebrating The Governor of Texas' recently issued exemption for Christians whose religious conscience won't allow them to take part in so called same-sex unions. Ironically, in his statement, Republican Governor Abbott acknowledges that the Obergefell opinion isn't law and doesn't trump the 1st Amendment. But what he flagrantly failed to mention was that the immoral, illegal and unconstitutional Obergefell opinion (that there is a Constitutional right to so-called same-sex marriage) is not "the law of the land" and doesn't trump or invalidate in any way the Texas marriage statutes, Texas Constitution and God's Immutable and Infallible Word (which ALL define marriage as the exclusive union of one man and one woman). Allowing marriage licenses to be illegally altered and issued to same-sex couples in Texas is not a "victory for religious liberty." It's a massive defeat for the Constitutional Rule of Law and what remains of our Republican form of Civil Government. If Americans truly want to restore Constitutional Checks and Balances and the Rule of Law, we must demolish the toxic liberal lie of Judicial Supremacy (that Rule of Judges equal the Rule of Law). And that has the best chance of occurring at the state level. Here is what Governor Abbott of Texas should have said:
"The Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being. As governor I have a solemn obligation to enforce the laws and statutes of the state of Texas in obedience to the Texas and U.S. Constitutions. The marriage statutes in Texas and our Constitution limit marriage to one man and one woman in accordance with God's Word and can never be amended or altered in any way. Therefore, I will not enforce the immoral and unconstitutional Obergefell opinion and will not authorize any alterations to or issuance of marriage licenses to same sex couples in Texas. This is not as much an issue of religious liberty as it is an issue of the preservation of the Rule of Law. And here in Texas, Constitutional oaths and the Rule of Law still matter and I will not violate my oath. And in addition to not authorizing the issuance of marriage licenses to same sex couples in Texas, I will also be shutting down all Planned Parenthood Abortuaries in Texas since killing pre-born babies blatantly violates the 5th and 14th amendments which both guarantee that all innocent human persons not be deprived of due process and equal protection of the laws. Neither Roe nor Obergefell are the "law of the land" and here in Texas I as governor will protect marriage and life and reject them both as the legal nullities they are. Period!"
If Kim Davis had authorized the issuance of marriage licences to same-sex couples in Kentucky she would have violated: 1. Kentucky statutory law which limits marriage to one man and one woman. The penalty for a magistrate marrying two people of the same-sex is a $500-$1000 fine and removal from office! 2. The Kentucky Marriage Amendment to the Constitution, which passed in 2004 with 75% of the vote. It reads, "Only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Kentucky." 3. Our Founding National Charter & Organic Law, the Declaration & Supreme Law of the Land, the U.S. Constitution since so called same-sex marriage violates the "laws of nature and nature's God." 4. God's Immutable, Infallible, Inerrant and Authoritative Word which defines marriage as the exclusive union of one man and one woman which can never be redefined by any majority of jurists, voters or legislators. For anyone to believe Kim is guilty, one must believe an immoral and totally unconstitutional court opinion trumps Kentucky law, the Kentucky Constitution, the U.S. Constitution & Declaration and the Bible. In other words, you would have to be a Judicial Supremacist. Are you?
The freeing of Kim Davis by Judge Bunning who illegally imprisoned Kim is an enormously significant event that can't be underscored. It has demonstrated: 1. That the federal Judge Bunning knew he had overstepped his authority by ordering Kim to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples and had no legal or constitutional authority to do so. (And should be punished/removed from office/disbarred and forced to pay restitution to Kim for his illegal actions.) 2. That Kim was the one abiding by the law and her sworn oath all along by refusing to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples in Kentucky which would have violated the state marriage statutes limiting marriage to 1 man and 1 woman. If this were not true, the judge would never have let her out:-) 3. That illegal, immoral and unconstitutional court opinions are not law and don't super-cede/revoke/"strike down" constitutionally valid laws and statutes. Judicial Supremacy is a big fat lie. Supreme Court opinions only have legal merit to the extent they accord with the Constitution and ultimately with the "laws of nature and nature's God." Any law or court opinion (Roe, Lawrence, Dred Scott, Obergefell) contrary to God's Law is no law at all! They are all legal nullities and are required to be treated as such! The legislative and executive branches have the solemn DUTY to ignore/reject ALL unconstitutional court opinions without exception. (Checks and balances). 4. That all marriage licenses issued to same sex couples in Kentucky regardless of who signs them are legally null and void since the Kentucky marriage statutes strictly limit marriage to one man and one woman in accordance with God's Word (marriage is the exclusive union of one man and one woman which can never be redefined by any court, legislature or majority of voters and are therefore legally null and void in all 50 states where they are being issued!) 5. That Kim Davis has set the standard and should be a role model for every civil magistrate at every level and branch of government to ignore/reject unconstitutional court orders, opinions and laws per their sworn Constitutional oaths!
Many self-described conservatives are claiming that Kentucky marriage clerk Kim Davis should either "follow the law" and issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples or "find another job" since, of course, the Obergefell opinion that there is a supposed Constitutional right to so-called "same-sex marriage" is now the "law of the land." (At least according to the Bush appointee federal judge who threw Kim Davis in jail for not agreeing to violate her oath and also according to all the Judicial Supremacist blond bimbos and talking heads over at Faux News) Jefferson, Hamilton, and Lincoln, however, would beg to differ (by their own words below) with the toxic liberal lie that Supreme Court (SC) opinions immediately and without exception "invalidate" Constitutionally enacted laws and statutes. The SC is not King and their opinions aren't the "law of the land" the very moment they are issued. We have flouted the grave 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.Not even Hamilton imagined that the right to opine is a power to rule. Courts, he pointed out, have intentionally been given no means of enforcing their opinions -- making it obvious that the executive and legislative branches are not compelled to "obey" false or even dubious opinions. Therefore, he wrote:
“...the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution. … [T]he 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 WILL..."Lincoln acknowledged that court opinions are binding on the specific parties named and “entitled to very high respect and consideration (by) other departments of the government.” But like the Founding Fathers, he utterly rejected the claim that judges' opinions are the law of the land:
“..if 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 eminent tribunal.”Americans must reject the Orwellian Lie that is cancelling self-government in the United States. Lincoln said on the battlefield at Gettysburg:
“Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether … 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… 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 the earth.”The Supreme Court issues administrative opinions that the other two superior branches (legislative and executive) should strongly consider. But any change in the laws must be made via the Constitutionally proscribed process (by the legislative branch and signed into law by the executive.) Judicial opinions are only legally binding on the parties in the case being heard in so far as they comply with the Constitution. Any law or court opinion contrary to the Constitution is legally null and void on its face and must be ignored and rejected by every civil magistrate at every level and branch of government. The problem is that many Americans have been brainwashed to believe the lie that COTUS and POTUS must always obey SCOTUS no matter how immoral, illegal and unconstitutional their opinions may be. The truth is that COTUS and POTUS and every civil magistrate at every level and branch of government has a moral and Constitutional duty (per the oath they swear)to ignore/reject ALL anti-Constitutional court opinions. (Such as Obergefell for example) The Supreme Court is no more "supreme" over the other 2 branches or the people than the Federal Reserve or Federal Express is part of the Federal Government. The Framers intentionally designed the Judiciary to be "the weakest of the 3 branches" for a reason. (See Federalist #78 for more). The Democrat governor of Kentucky is blatantly violating his oath by allowing marriage licenses to be issued (and illegally altered) to same sex couples since the marriage statutes in Kentucky have never been altered or amended in any way and still limit marriage to one man and one woman. And every single marriage licence that has been issued to a same-sex couple in Kentucky is legally null and void. He is the one who should be in jail. Not Kim Davis who has a far superior understanding of the oath of office, the rule of law, our Constitutional Republican form of government and God's Immutable Word than 99.9% of our elected representatives. (including virtually every GOP presidential candidate) All unconstitutional judicial opinions must be ignored and rejected by every civil magistrate at every level and branch of government. Period! Roe should have been. Lawrence should have been. Dred Scott should have been. And Obergefell should be ignored and rejected by every governor of every sovereign state in the union for the immoral and unconstitutional abomination it is. That is how our Representative Republican form of government was originally designed to work. Ever hear of the term "checks and balances?" Sadly, all 50 governors are violating their oaths by treating a toothless and totally immoral opinion as if it were the "law of the land" by issuing marriage licences to same sex couples despite the fact the SC can't make, amend or "overturn" laws and in spite of the fact that in virtually every state in the Union, the Constitutionally enacted marriage statutes still define marriage as the exclusive union of one man and one woman AND in spite of the fact that no majority of jurists, legislators or voters possesses the authority to re-define what God Almighty Himself has once for all explicitly ordained, defined, and established (i.e., that marriage is the EXCLUSIVE union of one man and one woman!) Including the state of Kentucky where the marriage statute that limits marriage as the union of one man and one woman is still the "law of the land!"
