“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

The presidential oath of office.

The 35 most powerful words in the world.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” — Preamble to the Constitution

The Constitution is the supreme law of the land in the United States. link

Article Two of the Constitution describes the office of the President of the United States. The President is head of the executive branch of the federal government, as well as the nation’s head of state and head of government.

Article Two describes the office, qualifications and duties of the President of the United States and the Vice President. It is modified by the 12 Amendment which tacitly acknowledges political parties, and the 25th Amendment relating to office succession. The president is to receive only one compensation from the federal government. The inaugural oath is specified to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.

The president is the Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces and state militias when they are mobilized. He or she makes treaties with the advice and consent of a two-thirds quorum of the Senate. To administer the federal government, the president commissions all the offices of the federal government as Congress directs; he or she may require the opinions of its principal officers and make “recess appointments” for vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate. The president is to see that the laws are faithfully executed, though he or she may grant reprieves and pardons except regarding Congressional impeachment of himself or other federal officers. The president reports to Congress on the State of the Union, and by the Recommendation Clause, recommends “necessary and expedient” national measures. The president may convene and adjourn Congress under special circumstances.

Section 4 provides for removal of the president and other federal officers. The president is removed on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Article Three of the Constitution describes the court system (the judicial branch), including the Supreme Court. There shall be one court called the Supreme Court. The article describes the kinds of cases the court takes as original jurisdiction. Congress can create lower courts and an appeals process. Congress enacts law defining crimes and providing for punishment. link

With that information said, maybe now we can lay down a clearer path of why the courts are important.

The courts uphold the laws of the land. They help to protect and serve our rights. Our liberties. Our freedoms. They help to settle disputes, correct some wrongs and sometimes even the courts don’t go the way the people want, but they go the way the law is written.

When times change and events come to pass where laws need to be reevaluated and changed or new laws are needed, than the courts are there for us too.

When a man steps up, is elected into office, promises to uphold and follow the LAW OF THE LAND and then does everything in his power to overrule the LAW OF THE LAND, to violate the rights and freedoms of the people, then the courts are beholden to do their job and prevent him. To protect us. To reaffirm the LAW OF THE LAND.

This is not “obstructionism”. This is the job of the courts. Anyone willing to throw away the Constitution, the LAW OF THE LAND, with the excuse of ” security” or “safety” is not American. They are voluntarily giving up their rights to freedom of speech, religion, assembly, etc. They no longer want the rights given to them by the Constitution and protected by the courts. This is a fact.

This is what the president needs to learn. To understand.

Or, he needs to go because he refuses to uphold his oath of office. His promise to the people. All the people.

We the People.
