The following video is produced by the Freedom Project.
The Freedom Project is a political action committee (PAC) established in 1995 to provide assistance to Republican candidates for federal office. Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) serves as honorary chairman. The Freedom Project is committed to a better America based on freedom and security, empowered citizens and personal responsibility. Our mission is to strengthen the Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives that’s focusing relentlessly on jobs and the economy.
The Freedom Project provides direct financial assistance to Republican candidates for federal office; supports Speaker Boehner’s political efforts to promote and fundraise for Republican candidates across the country; and maintains FreedomProject.org — a web-based clearinghouse for Republican activism featuring online fundraising and grassroots tools, and regular updates on key races and critical issues. The Freedom Project’s online disclosure information is available at FEC.gov.
What is your opinion? Do you agree with the position the Freedom Project has that the Judicial Branch acts unconstitutional when they interepret law from the bench that results in a new understanding of law? Example: Freedom of Speech under the U.S. Constitution does not address a person’s right to post opinions on Facebook; but a court resolves an issue providing a person more rights then the U.S. Constitution.
After watching the video, post your understanding of the Judicial Branch’s power and discuss how the Judicial Branch has used its power. Make sure to use additional research (articles/textbook) to support your position.

Do you think the video is angled to support the Republican’s point of view and is not reflection of a bi-partisan view? Explain.
