Under the constitution of the old CSA, the several States had the ability to impeach federal judges within their borders for doing things like this:
A federal judge ruled on Friday that a Tennessee law banning drag shows in public or in places where children could view them is unconstitutional, finding that it violates freedom of speech protections.
U.S. District Judge Thomas Parker said in his ruling that the law, which Gov. Bill Lee (R) signed in March, is both “unconstitutionally vague and substantially overbroad.”
The law says an “adult cabaret performance” is unlawful if it happens on public property or in a location where the performance “could be viewed by a person who is not an adult.” It defines such a performance as one that is harmful to minors and includes topless dancers, “exotic” dancers, strippers and male or female impersonators.
Parker had issued a preliminary injunction at the end of March to block the law from taking effect. He agreed with Friends of George’s, a Memphis-based theater group that produces drag performances, comedy sketches and plays, that the state’s Adult Entertainment Act (AEA) could apply “just about anywhere.”
A schoolboy who wore a t-shirt advertising a scientific fact cannot obtain temporary injunctive help from the yankee courts, but child molesters can. This is an indictment of something or another. The CSA and its superior laws being temporarily suspended, Nashville should just do what the rulers of Mordor do when confronted with a ruling they dislike – ignore it. The TN Assembly could just pass a simple resolution telling the judge, “No, you’re wrong” and be done. Beyond that, before getting to the big S-word, there are other options, EC status, and more. Of course, given that we’re talking about Republican’ts, there’s little point in further talk. The Lt. Gov. is probably a “Friend of George”, so what does it matter?
If any Americans survive this decade and finally decide to act, then the swing-back is going to be harsh. I suppose that’s the way it always is.
