News that the Supreme Court in Venezuela has stripped the Legislature of power comes as no surprise to the informed people around the world who keep themselves abreast of current affairs especially in relation to the socialist/communist movements; this includes those who try to disguise their ideology by referring to themselves as liberals or progressives. (See here)
This action by the judiciary completes the process of transforming Venezuela into a full blown communist dictatorship using the false promise of benevolent socialism to seduce the people. This deceitful modus operandi was highlighted by none other Lenin himself when he declared that the goal of socialism is communism.
It also should set the alarm bells ringing in the western democracies since judicial activism by agenda driven judges is playing an ever increasing role in undermining elected Presidents, Prime Ministers and legislatures by governing from the bench. These judges are not appointed because of their judicial acumen or political independence but because of their commitment to imposing the so-called ‘progressive’ agenda i.e. socialism.
This is the same judicial activism that stopped the President of the United States from using the powers granted to him under the constitution to keep the American people safe by instituting a temporary moratorium on immigration from terrorist infested countries hostile to the United States.
Since this moratorium was a solemn campaign promise that was instrumental in getting him elected the judicial activists are ignoring the mandate given to the President by the people.
It’s the same activism that has brazenly proclaimed that judiciaries at federal, state and local level have organized teams of lawyers to prepare hundreds of law suits in readiness to oppose every action taken by the Trump administration that stalls or reverses the fundamental transformation of America embarked upon by former President Obama.
The current situation in the United States proves that the duly elected government is hamstrung and unable to govern effectively and deliver what the electorate put them in office to do. Although the Republicans have won the Presidency, the House of Representatives, the Senate along with a record number of Governorships and State legislatures, the losing Democrats have the initiative. In conjunction with their media whores they are controlling the message and stalling the political agenda.
When one looks at these anti-democratic actions along with the demographic shift and an unsustainable national debt normally associated with socialist tax and spend economic policies, the contrast between the USA and the host of failed South American states is becoming increasingly blurred.
Across the pond in Great Britain, the power of the judiciary over elected legislatures is more pronounced.
Agenda driven judges have ignored the overwhelming mandate given to the government after the Brexit referendum to leave the EU.
Identical to the judicial activism employed against President Trump, this political action by appointed judges has effectively stripped Prime Minister Theresa May of her prerogative powers that were granted to her office in the 19th century.
Activist judges have also stripped the powers of deportation from the Home Secretary that have been traditionally exercised by that senior officer of state for decades. In an echo of their American counterparts, this action puts the rights of dangerous criminal immigrants, both illegal and legal, and known terrorists above those of the British people putting their safety at risk. (Judges prevent criminal deportations here)
If home grown activist judges aren’t enough to contend with, since the political class surrendered their sovereignty to the European Union the long suffering British people have to contend with the supremacy of foreign judges from the European Court of Justice. (ECJ) and the European Court of Human Rights. (ECHR)
Many of these judges bear a historical animosity toward Great Britain and the British people and this is reflected in their judgments.
As proof of meddling by the European Union judges, Great Britain loses seventy-five percent of EU court cases. (See here)
In a devastating expose of the power of judges to bypass democratically elected legislatures the following article is highly recommended. The ECJ Now routinely interferes with the most fundamental duties of an elected government here.
