Alexander Hamilton called the judiciary “the least dangerous branch.” He wrote those words long before judicial supremacists began redefining marriage. But Hamilton and his fellow Founding Fathers gave us valuable tools to limit the damage, and we ought to use them now. In our system of checks and balances, judges don’t have the final say. President Andrew Jackson recognized this fact when he said about the then chief justice, “John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it.” Abraham Lincoln had a similar response to the Supreme Court’s decision in the Dred Scott case. He told the country we should not submit to the dictates of “that eminent tribunal.” Both of those Presidents understood that the judiciary is only one of three branches of government. Its duty is to interpret the Constitution, not rewrite it. Jackson and Lincoln both knew that enforcement was ultimately up to the people.

In a new report by military authority Bill Gertz, Communist China confirmed that it conducted a flight test of a new long-range missile that involves the use of simulated multiple warheads. This announcement was an admission that the missile involved the test of multiple, independently targetable reentry vehicles, or MIRVs. China’s MIRV technology is based on illegally exported U.S. satellite technology transferred to China during President Bill Clinton’s administration.

The president of Planned Parenthood recently said that she wants to “make it completely unacceptable” for pro-life candidates to run for office. These candidates “oppose women’s rights” according to Planned Parenthood President Jill Filipovic says and “want to take us backward.” Her statements teach us valuable things about the pro-abortion movement. Like many on the left, abortion supporters want to shut down all dissent until they’re the only voices heard. They are ruthless in their demand for unrestricted abortions. They don’t want abortions to be “safe, legal, and rare.” They won’t be happy until abortions are commonplace. Concern for women’s safety comes far, far behind their hunger for everyone to accept easy-access to abortion.
