Granted, Kamala Harris has proven time and time again that she has risen to her position not on intellect or political accomplishments but apparently because of feminine skills she has shared freely. She continues to exhibit her lack of Constitutional understanding, however that lack of Constitutional understanding also falls at the feet of the law school she attended, UC Hastings. Most law schools do not teach the Constitution, but they teach Supreme Court opinions.
According to the United States Constitution, the Supreme Court has no authority to make law. In Article Three the Supreme Court was given the authority to have judicial power, or render opinions on cases brought before them, and to establish inferior courts.
Yet, this is the take of Harris on the court’s opinion regarding the Dodd case on abortion when she said that she believes the U.S. Supreme Court is "an activist court." When asked to explain her reply was, "we had an establish right for almost half a century, which is the right of women to make decisions about their own body, as an extension of what we have decided to be the privacy rights to which all people are entitled, and this court took that constitutional right away. And we are suffering as a nation because of it. That causes me great concern about the integrity of the court overall,"
This was based on a Supreme Court opinion in 1973 called “Roe vs Wade”. That ruling did not create a Constitutional right. No Supreme Court ruling, no executive decision, frankly no law can create a constitutional right. The only way a constitutional right can be created would be to amend the constitution, just like what was done with the Bill of Rights.
Opinions rendered by one court have been reversed by another many times. The ruling on Dodd simply stated that there is no constitutional right to abortion in the constitution and per the constitution and the Tenth amendment, this is a case for each State to decide. This ruling followed Article 1 and Section 8 of the Constitution along with the Tenth amendment. Any good law school would teach that the Dodd ruling was based on the Constitution and the Roe ruling was the work of an overzealous, political, and activist court.
It is so important that citizens understand the Constitution, why it was written the way it was, the concept of Republic vs Democracy, and Federalism vs a large powerful central government. This is the difference between freedom and being a slave to government.
Everybody will have the ability to understand what Harris should have been taught in law school. “Republic or Democracy Does it Matter” is in its final stages of production and should be available by the end of September. Be sure you get your copy, read it, and understand why our founders specifically gave us a Constitutional Republic and purposefully rejected democracy.
