The Supremacists: The Tyranny of Judges and How to Stop It is the title of my new book, to be published in July. This book refutes the two colossal myths propagated by the legal community for the last 50 years that "the Constitution is whatever the Supreme Court says it is" and that court rulings are "the law of the land." We simply must not permit out-of-control, activist judges to ban our acknowledgment of God, redefine marriage, overturn our culture and history, and rewrite our laws and Constitution.

The Supremacists is a dramatic, page-turning account of what the judges have done to America in areas of religion, patriotism, marriage, schools, pornography, law enforcement, history, national identity, and even our right to self-government. We don't have to put up with this any longer. The Supremacists explains the problem in language everyone can understand and includes a plan of action to free Americans from the Rule of Judges.

This is a book about the fundamentals of American constitutional government - and how we can shake loose the arrogant, arbitrary rule of judges before it is too late. This book has never-before-told facts about how the judges grabbed such immense power, and how we can put judges back in their proper role.

President Bush has laid down the challenge. But you and I must carry on the battle. In this election year, we must support only candidates who promise to support all necessary legislation to stop the activist judges from imposing their mischief on us. My book provides everything you need to debate this issue, to confront your public officials and candidates, and to make this a vital topic in the media.

Here is a bird's eye view of the important insights explained in The Supremacists:

  • How the Supreme Court invented new rights without any constitutional basis
  • The true meaning of "the supreme law of the land"
  • The claim that the Supreme Court can "rewrite our future history"
  • Scary evidence that the judges use a "wildcard" to create new law
  • "Evolution" doesn't just refer to the origin of species - it means that the supremacists "evolve" the Constitution into approving their own social policies
  • The shocking fact about how many current Supreme Court justices were appointed by Republicans
  • The real reasons why liberals like activist judges

  • Where did "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance come from?
  • What Congress did - and didn't do - to support "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance
  • The atheists brought the Pledge of Allegiance case because they thought the time was ripe to get the Supreme Court to ban "under God"
  • Why the Ten Commandments can't be displayed in public school classrooms
  • A picture window with a waterfall in the background made one judicial supremacist conclude that a Ten Commandments monument is an endorsement of Christianity
  • A judicial supremacist has gone so far as to rule that displaying the Ten Commandments in a public building turns America into a theocracy
  • Judge Roy Moore would still be a state supreme court justice if he lived in the Fifth or Eighth Circuit instead of in the Eleventh Circuit
  • It wasn't even a Christian prayer that the Supreme Court banned from the public schools in 1962
  • The Supreme Court has "an active hostility to religion and religious institutions" according to one justice

  • Two state courts ordered the issuing of same-sex marriage licenses before Massachusetts did, but the public didn't hear about those rulings

  • Why the Equal Rights Amendment, if ratified, would have required same-sex marriage licenses

  • The Supreme Court decision that knocked out Texas's anti-sodomy law was based on "emerging awareness" about sex instead of on the U.S. Constitution

  • One Supreme Court justice suggested that diagnosis of the legalities in a criminal case could be based on MRI scans

  • Confirming all President Bush's good judicial nominees won't solve the danger from the judicial supremacists
  • There is a way to get around Tom Daschle's use of the 60-vote rule to prevent votes on Bush's judicial nominees

  • Congress should stop the racket of making states, cities, counties and schools pay the attorney's fees when they file suit against Ten Commandments monuments or the Pledge of Allegiance. Thousands of school districts and local entities of government are pots of gold for the ACLU, which plans to collect attorney's fees for all its lawsuits to ban God from every public place and school.
  • Congressional investigations and public debate are helpful in curbing the Imperial Judiciary

Questions to ask every candidate for the U.S. Congress: 
Will you pledge to support: 
  1. Legislation to deny the federal courts the power to hear any lawsuit claiming that the acknowledgment of God by public officials or on public property violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
  2. Legislation to deny the federal courts the power to hear any challenge to either section of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) or any state DOMA.
  3. Legislation to repeal the Watergate-era law that allows the ACLU to get attorney's fees from suits against the Ten Commandments and the Pledge of Allegiance.
  4. Legislation to impeach any judge who purports to change U.S. law because of foreign court decisions or legal briefs.
  5. Legislation to stipulate that a statewide referendum cannot be voided except by the ruling of a three-judge court.
  6. Legislation to deny taxpayer funding to enforce any court order against the Ten Commandments or the Pledge of Allegiance.
  7. Legislation to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act by denying marital benefits (such as joint income tax returns) to all couples married in any state where the legal definition of marriage is no longer the union of one man and one woman as husband and wife.
  8. Legislation to forbid any consent decree against a governmental entity that requires court supervision for more than a year.
  9. Ongoing Congressional investigations about all aspects of judicial activism and proposed remedies.
  10. A promise to speak out against the unconstitutional notion that "the Constitution is whatever the Supreme Court says it is."
  11. A promise to read Phyllis Schlafly's book The Supremacists and discuss it with constituents.
  12. A statement of a specific plan to carry out President Bush's challenge that "We will not stand for judges who undermine democracy by legislating from the bench and try to remake the culture of America by court order."

Question to ask every U.S. Senate candidate (in addition to the above): 
Will you vote to change the Senate's filibuster rule from three-fifths of all Senators to three-fifths of Senators present? That new rule, which can be adopted by a simple majority vote on Jan. 3, 2005, would prevent a handful of liberal Democrats from obstructing President Bush's nominees to the federal courts.
