The real story of Kim Davis is not about same-sex marriage. It is about the power that the Courts have usurped from the legislative branch, the executive branch and the from the people. This usurption has been slowly done over the past 100+ years. Case after case that comes before the Courts where the Court deems that they have the power and the authority to do what the US Constitution and the constitutions of the several states do not give it.
The Supreme Court of the United States of America has issued an Opinion that somehow has become a statute in this country. This Opinion of the Court not only struck down the Defence of Marriage Act (a Statute enacted by Congress and signed by the President), but somehow added a new statute that replaced DOMA. A “Marriage Equality Act” that is not an act of Congress but of one by the Courts.
Not only does the Court NOT have the right to create legislation. They also do not have the right to strike down legislation. The so-called power of “Judicial Review” was a power that the Court gave to itself in the opening decade of the 1800’s.
Add to this injustice, Kim Davis was found to be in “Contempt of Court” and criminally jailed for the offence. Her trial was by the Judge that found her in Contempt. He was also the jury. Denying Mrs Davis of her 7th Amendment Rights to have a trial by Jury. This is another court given power that the court has given itself.
From the County Courts, to the State Courts, to the Supreme Court of the land. The Black Robed Tyrants have given themselves powers and authority not granted to them by Law or statute. The Court was wrong to create legislation. The Court was wrong to jail Kim Davis without a trial by jury.
The Court is out of control and this is deeply disturbing and troubling. Correcting and reigning in the Court should be one of the first priorities of anyone running for office at any level. Otherwise, the Courts will continue there power grab and we will have a system of government ruled by the Courts instead of by the people.
