Turley to Speak on Supreme Court at Brazosport College

Today I will be speaking at Brazosport College in Lake Jackson, Texas. I have previously spoken at the college which was selected as one of the top ten community colleges in the nation by the Aspen Institute. The Clute and Lake Jackson areas are also the location of the Ron Paul Institute. I will be speaking on “The Supreme Court and Society: A review of current and upcoming Supreme Court cases.”

It is a great pleasure to return to Brazosport, which I have watched grow through the years in both its campus and academic programs. This presentation is part of the College’s long association with the Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series.

Lake Jackson is a beautiful area and the over 150 acres of campus are lovely. This is a working class town that long held Dow Chemical workers and their families. Two years ago, Brazosport College received a $3 million gift from MacKenzie Scott in recognition of their service to minority communities.

The lecture will explore the Court’s current docket, which promises some very significant opinions in the areas of free speech, free exercise, election laws, and a host of other areas.

    I’m assuming and hoping that things went well today, and JT’s sage commentary was well received.– Not so much at The City University of New York’s Graduate Center, https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/sad-old-drunk-pelosi-gets-badly-heckled-at-conference-labeled-war-criminal-by-demonstrators/ar-AA19y8oH?cvid=031cfe66de7d473cb69983dd7f0494bf&ocid=winp2fptaskbarhover&ei=6

  2. Professor Turley, please remind people everywhere that Justices are sworn to support the Constitution and that the Supreme Court enjoys the authority to strike down unconstitutional acts by the executive and legislative branches. Please remind people that the Supreme Court must act retroactively to place America firmly back onto the “manifest tenor” of the Constitution as it did in Dobbs, including the fact that everything Lincoln et al. did was done through unconstitutional acts such as denying fully constitutional secession, imposing unconstitutional martial law, suspending habeas corpus, prosecuting an unconstitutional war and amending the Constitution outside of the constitutional process through tyranny, oppression, violence and brutality, with a “gun to America’s head.” As unconstitutional abortion was struck down retroactively by the Supreme Court through case law, every aspect of Lincoln’s unconstitutional “Reign of Terror” must be struck down retroactively and the dominion of the Constitution reestablished. Remind them that extant immigration laws of the Lincoln era must also be retroactively and vigorously enforced.

    Judicial Review in the United States

    The legitimacy of judicial review and the judge’s approach to judicial review are discussed.

    The doctrine of judicial review holds that the courts are vested with the authority to determine the legitimacy of the acts of the executive and the legislative branches of government.

    – Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs

    Marbury v. Madison (1803)

    The decision in this Supreme Court Case established the right of the courts to determine the constitutionality of the actions of the other two branches of government.

    – National Archives

    “…courts…must…declare all acts contrary to the manifest tenor of the Constitution void.”

    “…men…do…what their powers do not authorize, [and] what they forbid.”

    “[A] limited Constitution … can be preserved in practice no other way than through the medium of courts of justice, whose duty it must be to declare all acts contrary to the manifest tenor of the Constitution void. Without this, all the reservations of particular rights or privileges would amount to nothing … To deny this would be to affirm … that men acting by virtue of powers may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid.”

    – Alexander Hamilton

  3. I live not far from Lake Jackson. I don’t know that I’d call it a beautiful place – it’s in the swamps just north of the Gulf, hence the name. Texas has some beautiful places, but I don’t think I’d include Lake Jackson as one of them. It’s flat as a pancake from here to there and is good farmland. FYI, the town was laid out and built by Dow Chemical for its employees. There are chemical plants all around the area – not at Lake Jackson itself but just south and east of there. We mainly pass through there on our way to Surfside and Brazosport to go to the beach or go fishing.

  4. Hey Turley, how about talking about S.C. justices live by the same rules as federal judges. Or maybe address how the Thomas’s have accepted vacations from a republican megadonor Harlan Crow, for over two decades and has never reported it. Or here’s a good one, how about talking about the known activities of Ginni Thomas before and after J6.

      1. Fish Wings: Yeah! Maybe Turley can come up with some defense to the lack of a Judicial Code of Ethics for the SCOTUS, too.

        1. It might help his credibility to get the name of the joint correct, too. I see Turley corrected his spelling error: he originally called it “BraVOsport”, not “Brazosport”.

  5. A beautiful town, and enjoy your stay in Texas. For the interested, the name implies the mouth of the Brazos (‘brazos-port’) and not an athletic activity (‘brazo-sport’).

  6. Given that the Trump indictment in NY has the most recent predicate act asserted as taking place in December 2017, how is not the indictment not defective on its face as outside the 5 year statute of limitations and subject, really, to dismissal on the Judge’s own act without any motion needed to be made.

    1. Not saying this is right, but they are claiming the SOL goes on hold if the suspect legally changes their state of residence.
