Could our republic be on its last legs?
If the judicial system continues to usurp power it doesn’t rightfully possess, then America’s current system can’t last much longer, according to Conservative Review senior editor Daniel Horowitz.
“We will not survive another few years as a republic, irrespective of who wins this election, if the courts are not stripped of their power,” Horowitz declared during a recent appearance on the Mark Levin Show.
Indeed, the nation is reaching a “cathartic moment in our history where elections don’t matter,” according to Horowitz.
This is because unelected judges are deciding most major social and political questions with finality. Horowitz details the danger posed by the courts in his new book “Stolen Sovereignty: How to Stop Unelected Judges From Transforming America.”
Levin praised the book, calling it “a must-read” and “a terrific book” and deeming Horowitz “one of the smartest young men in the conservative movement today.”
Horowitz said he was inspired to write the book by two distinct events that happened Sept. 3, 2015. That was the day Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis was thrown in jail for refusing to violate her Christian faith by issuing “marriage” licenses to same-sex couples. This came after the Supreme Court in June created the constitutional “right” to homosexual marriage.
Then also on Sept. 3, according to Horowitz, a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals panel invalidated the deportation of a criminal alien because the individual was transgender.
The judge applied international law to rule the alien could not be returned to Mexico because he might face persecution because of his gender identity. The judge then castigated the immigration officials in court for not using the proper pronoun to refer to the defendant.
