Between 1938 – 1945 Major attacks were made on the pillars of the Constitution of the United States. The majority of these came from a Federalist lead Supreme Court which also failed to block the Executive and Legislative branches from violating the constitutional doctrine of Separation of Powers. It’s not hard to speculate that in this time period of American History racism and bigotry were major contributing factors.
The Doctrine Separation of Powers and its precepts were based on careful analysis of how to keep a government from failing as had happened for thousands of years.
In 1965 Taylor Caldwell wrote the Novel A Pillar of Iron. Ironically the events and individuals above with help from Vice President AL Gore, Senator Patrick Leahy, and others lead to the Goss Conspiracy. The linchpin Brutus of treason former Vice President Joe Biden who altered the judicial oath of office in 1990 to allow judges power of discrimination and to ignore constitutional due process rights.
The implementation of the Goss Conspiracy lead to the toppling the US Constitution. The Conspiracy turned the US Government into a criminal enterprise operating in the interest of Oligarchs.
The effects of the Goss Conspiracy on the Constitution was well described by Ted Kennedy’s speech on the Senate Floor when he attacked the nomination Robert Bork‘s Supreme Court nomination. Bork had been Richard Nixon’s Solicitor General and instrumental in the Saturday Night Massacre. It should be noted that Bork abandoned his lifetime Judicial Appointment in 1988.
“Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, and schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the Government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens.” Senator Ted Kennedy
Their actions and efforts are in fact perfectly described by Taylor Caldwell’s depiction of Cicero in defending his actions in the Catiline Conspiracy.
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared”
Montesquieu father of the Separation of Powers Doctrine expounded the the following view of Roman History.
“It is not chance that rules the world. Ask the Romans, who had a continuous sequence of successes when they were guided by a certain plan, and an uninterrupted sequence of reverses when they followed another. There are general causes, moral and physical, which act in every monarchy, elevating it, maintaining it, or hurling it to the ground. All accidents are controlled by these causes. And if the chance of one battle—that is, a particular cause—has brought a state to ruin, some general cause made it necessary for that state to perish from a single battle. In a word, the main trend draws with it all particular accidents.”
Ironically the “one battle—that is, the particular cause bringing the US Government to ruin was a battle over Segregation of a White Farm Community in Plains Georgia fought by President Jimmy Carter for Charles and Shirley Sherrod against the Segregationist Senator Herman Talmadge and the Lieutenant Governor of Georgia Lester Maddox.
Ironically in 1862, Isaac Newton, the first commissioner of US agriculture, reported to his president, Abraham Lincoln, that haciendas brought down Rome. The message to the country was pretty clear: small family farmers were the foundations of the American Republic. How history rhymes America.
