    (H.R. 3799/S. 2323) Now pending in congress.

    Under article III of the U.S. Consitution, congress has the power, the authrotity,and the responsibility to regulate the Federal judiciary, including the U.S. Supreme Court.

    In the House, it's known as H.R. 3799 Senate version is S.2323.
    The Sponsors are
    Rep. Robert Aderholt (Alabama)
    Rep. Michael Pence (Indiana)
    Sen. Richard Shelby (Alabama)
    Sen. Zell Miller (Georgia
    Sen. Sam Brownback (Kansas)
    Sen. Lindsey Graham (South Carolina)
    Sen. Trent Lott (Mississppi)

    Under this bill, Congress would expressly prohibit Federal courts from interfering with any expression of religious faith by local, state, or Federal officials. In other words, by law, Federal judges could not prevent:
    The ten commandments from being displayed in public buildings.
    Nativity scenes from appearing on courthouse lawns.
    "under God" from being recited in the Pledge of Allegiance.
    This bill would limit the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts in these matters

    This bill would also provide for the impeachment and removal of sitting judges if they rely on decisions from any international body or foreign court. which Sandra Day Occonor and Ruth Bader Ginsberg are basing their opinions on laws enacted in foreign lands such as the European Court of Human Rights and the United Nations. This is most important. Judges need to be held accountable if they break their oath to serve our Consititution!

    It sounds good. I can't believe we have justices citing international and european law. That should be illegal. As OUR legislative body should be the recognized legal authority in the nation. We didn't vote for anyone in europe. This is disenfranchisement of the entire nation.

    I just hate how these radical measures are being passed by unelected judges. Gives me a feeling of helplessness.

    Too damn right, Bonnie. Strike while the iron's hot.

    While we're on the subject of Supreme Court Justices who are inordinately enamored of international law, let's not forget Stephen Breyer. Addressing the WTO, he stated, "The U.S. Constitution will have to evolve in order to fit with the documents of other nations." I don't think he can make his intentions any clearer than that!

    Well...it's been a month, I've been extremely busy with a new job and school, but I have to post on this topic.

    This is, by far, quite possibly the most ridiculous, ludicrous, asinine piece of legislation proposed in a long, long time. How dare Congress interfere in the judiciary. What next? Is Congress going to pass a law that the President can't veto a bill? This is a blatant attempt by right-wing members of Congress to force the courts to impose theocracy, and yes Zell Miller is a right-winger. The fact is, we live in a society where freedom of religion is a cornerstone of our history, culture and way of life. This means that we as a society cannot and should not give precedence to one religion over another. This means that we cannot and should not post the Christian Ten Commandments outside of courthouses. This means we cannot and should not have government funded nativity scenes on public land. This means we cannot and should never have put "In God We Trust" on money or "Under God" in the pledge of allegience. This law clearly and blatantly violates the separation of powers as intended by our founders, it violates the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and violates all common sense. If you don't like what a court has done, then pass a Constitutional amendment to override the decision. It has been done before, anyone ever heard of Dred Scott? That decision was specifically overturned in the 13th Amendment to the Constitution banning slavery.

    Ah...it's good to be back.
