GINGRICH - Get rid of Judges - Let ALEC Corporations Rule the US.

Newt Gingrich is giving fair warning to judges and courts across the country: If he becomes president, the judiciary won’t reign supreme.

The former House Speaker and current Republican presidential front-runner convened a conference call with reporters on Saturday to expand on his call for Congress to subpoena judges or even abolish courts altogether if they make wrong-headed decisions. Those arguments from Gingrich at Thursday's debate in Iowa drew scrutiny and criticism from his rivals.

Then, in what amounted to a 35-minute seminar on constitutional history, Gingrich argued that the judicial branch has grown far more powerful than the nation’s founders ever intended and said it would be well within the president’s authority as commander in chief to ignore a Supreme Court ruling that he believed was incorrectly decided.

Gingrich, a former history professor, also stood by his statement that Congress could abolish certain courts altogether, although he clarified that it should be a last resort to counteract judicial overreach.
Did you wonder where this came from – Yes! It has come from the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).  For years ALEC has been having hissy fits because of what they refer to as courts establishing legislation through rulings.  ALEC views court rulings as "establishing legislation" through the courts.  You know those types of rulings that protect citizens from corporate misdeeds or those rulings that protect our environment from corporate misdeeds or those rulings that protect workers from corporate misdeeds.

So in ALEC's viewpoint the courts have to go!  Because according to ALEC - ONLY ALEC state legislators and ALEC Alumni in Congress should pass legislation - the legislation that is written with the help fo corporate sector / private enterpsie ALEC corporate members in every ALEC taskforce.  Legislation that benefits ALEC corporations - and hurts every citizen, every worker and our environment.

ALEC’s agenda is not as innocent as certain writers would have you think.

They want to change American democracy as we know it and as it was set up by the founding fathers.  They want to change it to benefit ONLY corporations and the ALEC corporate sector members.

The federal government of the United States is the national government of the constitutional republic of fifty states and one district that is the United States of America. The federal government comprises three distinct branches of government: a legislative, an executive and a judiciary. These branches and their various powers are delineated in the U.S. Constitution;
ALEC only wants the legislative branch to exist - a legislative branch that has ALEC corporate sector / private enterprise members sitting at the table AS EQUALS.
A Congress completely staffed by ALEC Alumni who live off of ALEC corporate sector PAC money.
And in their wildest dreams an ALEC PRESIDENT  like Newt Gingrich.

All of this backed up by ALEC dominated state legislatures that has ALEC corporate sector / private enterprise members sitting at the table AS EQUALS.

And here's a possible real life scenario of what could happen if Newt had control of the Presidency and control to negate the judiciary....
In this article ALEC member Nikki Haley's immigration law that was developed by ALEC was just today blocked by a US Judge.  If Newt was president he would overturn this judge's decision (on the spot)  - because ALEC member Haley's immigration legislation is good for ALEC corporate sector members and what ALEC corporate sector members want - ALEC corporate sector members get.

SCARY - yes.

ONLY YOU can make a difference by making sure
ALEC members are not re-elected or elected to the state legislatures, city, county or township government.
ALEC ALUMNI are not re-elected .
ALEC ALUMNI are not appointed to any state, or federal position.
