Trump: I will appoint Justices . . . who will uphold our laws and our Constitution."

.

Trump will nominate his pick for the Supreme Court next week! Let us hope Donald Trump's selection is one who will follow the most fundamental rule of constitutional construction which is stated as follows:


The fundamental principle of constitutional construction is that effect must be given to the intent of the framers of the organic law and of the people adopting it. This is the polestar in the construction of constitutions, all other principles of construction are only rules or guides to aid in the determination of the intention of the constitution’s framers.--- numerous citations omitted__ Vol.16 American Jurisprudence, 2d Constitutional law (1992 edition), pages 418-19 - - - Par. 92. Intent of framers and adopters as controlling.


For far too long we have had judges and Justices who not only have ignored and subverted the text of our written Constitution, but likewise have ignored the documented "legislative intent" of our Constitution as stated during its framing and ratification which gives context to its text.


Those who reject and ignore abiding by the intentions and beliefs under which our Constitution was agree to, as those intentions and beliefs may be documented from historical records, wish to remove the anchor and rudder of our constitutional system so they may then be free to “interpret” the Constitution to mean whatever they wish it to mean. THIS KIND OF TYRANNY MUST END!

The whole aim of construction, as applied to a provision of the Constitution, is to discover the meaning, to ascertain and give effect to the intent of its framers and the people who adopted it.

From what I am hearing the choice has been narrowed down to 10th Circuit judge Neil Gorsuch and 3rd Circuit judge Thomas Hardiman.

Black ( U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1886 - 1971) Source: Lecture, Columbia University, 1968
