For decades, such judges have been simply making up law. What is worse, liberal and conservative lawmakers have been reinforcing such behavior by treating such rulings as if they are legitimate. Today, one in every three Americans have been killed by abortion simply because a handful of unelected officials said it was acceptable for these Americans to be killed. But issues like abortion and homosexual marriages can be resolved immediately, without special constitutional amendments, if we will simply avail ourselves of the measures given to us by our Founding Fathers to hold renegade and lawless judges accountable for their behavior. In this brilliant, accessible, and documented work, Dr. Edwin Vieira offers us the best researched and clearest overview to date of the power of the people to control a runaway judiciary.

How to Dethrone the Imperial Judiciary Reviews
I really would like to give this book more than three stars. It is smart, persuasive, well-researched, and almost always right. It also, unfortunately, contains sentences that go on too long, favors ostentation over clarity, and is boring. Nevertheless, it is an important book. Edwin Vieira convincingly argues against the United States Supreme Court's decision in Lawrence v. Texas. The Lawrence Court illegally employed foreign law to interpret the U.S. Constitution and preposterously purported to strike down all legislation based on traditional morals. Vieira demonstrates the absurdity of "judicial supremacy," the notion that the U.S. Supreme Court is the supreme interpreter of the U.S. Constitution. And then he demonstrates several practical things "We the People" can do to curtail the Supreme Court's power grab. The options include amending the Constitution (not ideal because it implies the Supreme Court got the pre-amendment interpretation right), pardons by the President, presidential refusal to enforce an unconstitutional decision, limitation of the court's jurisdiction, and removal of judges for lack of "good behaviour," among other possibilities. Many of the proposed actions are not currently politically possible. However, We the People delegated to the judicial branch the judicial power. We the People have the right and responsibility to ensure that power is not abused. How to Dethrone the Imperial Judiciary presents an important warning and challenge and ultimate plan of remediation. It is worth reading despite its faults.
