President Gingrich Would Rightly Ignore Unconstitutional Court Rulings

"[Chief Justice] John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!" - President Andrew Jackson (purportedly) 

I haven't been paying very much attention to the GOP presidential campaigns and debates, but my best guess is that there hasn't really been much discussion going on about the courts and the judges who preside over them.  The seeming one exception to this is Newt Gingrich who, in the following appearance on Face the Nation, forthrightly says Federal judges have effectively become dictators over the American people.  In his administration, Gingrich says that blatantly unconstitutional court rulings will be ignored, and the Federal judges who make them will be publicly held accountable and perhaps removed from the bench.

Even though I think Gingrich has too much personal baggage to overcome to win the GOP nomination for president, I really like what he saying in his campaign about the courts.  Hopefully, the other GOP candidates will take his cue and broaden the discussion.

Coming Back Soon

I've been gone for a while, but I plan to start blogging again real soon. One thing I'm considering is doing a series of posts on specific California state court judges that I have either appeared before or heard about. Suffice it to say, if I decide to do this series, most of these posts will be critical, and several will outright recommend throwing a judge off the bench via the ballot box.

There's a whole lot of incompetence in the California judiciary that has resulted in the needless harming of lives and which has cost all of us untold millions in taxes. The best way that I can think of to help reform this pervasive problem is to expose it on this here blog.
