What Judicial Oligarchy?
When the so-called ‘justices’ of the California Supreme Court, in their ruling overturning Proposition 22, commanded the State to recognize same-sex ‘marriages’ immediately – in the face of warnings that those ‘marriages’ would be be the source of enormous legal confusion when Proposition 8 passed – it was a case of the judiciary attempting to deny the people their right to self-rule (Proposition 22 passed by 61%) and it was a very transparent attempt to influence the outcome of Proposition 8, and it was an obvious attempt to make the will of the people utterly irrelevant anyway by making same-sex so-called ‘marriage’ a fait accompli irrespective of any constitutional requirements.
And when, after Proposition 8 did pass, the Court dealt with the 18,000 same-sex ‘marriages’ that had occurred in the five month interim between their ruling on Proposition 22 and the voters’ ruling on Proposition 8 by ordering that those ‘marriages’ would be forever recognized irregardless of what the law now was, it was a monstrous act of judicial haughtiness, judicial cynicism, and judicial cowardice… and it was obvious they were determined that same-sex ‘marriage’ would continue to be a fait accompli irrespective of any constitutional requirements… and it left in place, along with a caste of 36,000 super-privileged citizens, the attendant legal morass that all branches of government must now sort out in terms of regulation and law.
Ted Olson and David Boies are the kind of guys who like that sort of judicial tyranny.
American Foundation for Equal Rights lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies filed a motion with the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals, yesterday, asking that it immediately lift its order preventing same-sex marriages in California.
Apparently lawyers Olson and Boies hanker for even more of the kind of opportunity to spawn legal chaos that those 18,000 so-called ‘marriages’ has provided to them and their ilk. They got to have themselves some more of that stuff…
..it’s how they roll.
