Congress suffocates the courts
Sec. 1632. Limitation on jurisdiction
- `(a) Except as provided in subsection (b), no court created by Act of Congress shall have any jurisdiction, and the Supreme Court shall have no appellate jurisdiction, to hear or decide any question pertaining to the interpretation of, or the validity under the Constitution of, the Pledge of Allegiance, as defined in section 4 of title 4, or its recitation.
- `(b) The limitation in subsection (a) does not apply to--
- `(1) any court established by Congress under its power to make needful rules and regulations respecting the territory of the United States; or
- `(2) the Superior Court of the District of Columbia or the District of Columbia Court of Appeals;'.
So now the jurisdiction of the courts is the business of Congress, not the dictate of the Constitution. So they would sooner protect the Pledge (which they never swore to do) and attack the Constitution & Bill of Rights (which they did swear to do). Here as observed before, they are trying to change the very structure of government by changing its functioning.
The Pledge of Allegiance is the protection of traitors and elites.
For that reason alone it should be scrapped.
Every representative who voted for this should be impeached for violating their oath of office.
And every senator who supports it should be similarly menaced.
And then they all should be run out of town on a rail by the people, the real people, the citizens who work for a living that they have betrayed.
