NEW RELEASE 2023
The unique documentary history of the constitutional crisis surrounding the implementation of gay marriage in Massachusetts, 2001-2007.
In 2003, Massachusetts became the first state to formally recognize same-sex marriage. In a 4-3 ruling, the state’s Supreme Judicial Court declared that the Massachusetts Constitution (written by John Adams) protected same-sex marriage as an inviolable right. This absurdity went unchallenged by the political elite who cared nothing for the constitution’s clear separation of powers. While the state’s marriage law was never changed, the executive branch (under Gov. Mitt Romney) illegally implemented same-sex marriage – blindly accepting the court as the ultimate authority, despite widespread calls to reject its ruling.
CORRUPT BARGAINS is a unique history of how same-sex marriage began in Massachusetts. It is the only documentary account of the corrupt maneuvering of politicians and pro-LGBT special interest groups during this constitutional crisis (2001-2007).
Massachusetts developed the template for the deceptive political strategies that would dupe the conservative establishment and citizenry across the country. The tactics behind the U.S. Supreme Court’s Obergefell ruling on same-sex marriage (2015) were crafted in Massachusetts.
The successful LGBT strategy was to ignore questions of morality and public health, invent “rights,” demand “fairness” and “equality,” and flood the zone with emotional propaganda. The achievement of same-sex marriage cleared the way for the next big goal of the sexual radicals: transgender rights.
CORRUPT BARGAINS is a case study of how corrupt government officials circumvent constitutional governance. The book provides a front-row view of these precedent-setting events. It has rescued rare sources from the memory hole, with up-to-date links in the 900 endnotes.
