Virginia C. Armstrong, Ph.D., National Chairman


WHEREAS, the Constitution of the United States is, and must be, the supreme law of the land, superior to all court decisions;

WHEREAS, the Constitution must be interpreted in the light of its text, constitutional tradition, and its Judeo-Christian foundation;

WHEREAS, these constitutional foundations include a base of three primary societal institutions (marriage/family, church, and civil law/government) co-existing in balance with one another;

WHEREAS, the Constitution establishes systems of separation of powers within the national government and federalism to protect Judeo-Christian values;

WHEREAS, federal courts have blatantly assaulted these fundamental Constitutional principles and have re-written it under the guise of interpreting it;

AND WHEREAS, We the people still possess the ultimate human political power in this nation and have delegated to the President and Congress very broad powers to establish and empower national courts;

BE IT RESOLVED THAT ________ urge the President to nominate for the national bench only those candidates who evidence a clear commitment to the above principles;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT ________ urge the White House and other leaders to exercise the full political and persuasive powers of their positions with the public and press to restore fairness and constitutionality to the judicial selection and constitutional interpretation processes;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT ________ urge the Senate to fulfill its constitutional role regarding judicial nominations by advising and consenting only and formally eliminating unconstitutional filibustering of judicial nominees;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT ________ urge Congress to curb runaway national courts by actions including, but not limited to:

  • Requiring national courts to totally disregard any foreign or international law in interpreting the Constitution, excepting English constitutional and common law and the non-English antecedents of that law (e.g., the Ten Commandments);  
  • Protecting from national court jurisdiction the acknowledgment of God on public property and in official utterances (e.g., our national motto); 
  • Protecting the institution of marriage as traditionally defined from all judicial efforts to re-define it or protect substitute relationships (e.g., "civil unions"); 
  • Denying federal money and/or federal authority for the enforcement of any court decisions violative of the above principles and proposed executive or Congressional actions; 
  • Providing that none of the Congressional actions proposed above would, if enacted into law, be reviewable by any national court.
