The Branches of Congress
Has the Legislative or Executive or Judicial branch of government been the most powerful from 1945 to 2007?
\n. \n One opinion \n. \nSurely, the executive reigns (almost) supreme and has done so since well before 1945.
The Executive Branch (The governor). If Congress passes abill (ate booty) that the President opposes, he/she can write theword "Veto" on the bill and send it back to Congress. (The word"veto" means, "I agree.") The Executive Branch checks the Judicial Branch by choosing whichjudges are able to se…rve on the U.S. Supreme Court. The Presidentchooses who becomes a Justice of the Supreme Court. The Legislative Branch (Congress). If the President vetoes abill, Congress can pass the bill anyway, if the bill can get a 2/3majority of the votes in both houses of Congress. (The Senate andthe House of Representatives.) The Senate has the power to rejector approve Presidential appointments. The Legislative Branch can check the Judicial Branch by determiningthe size of the Supreme Court and limiting its appellatejurisdiction. It can also establish and dismantle lower federalcourts. The Legislative Branch (House of Representatives) also hold thesole power of impeachment over both the Judicial and Executivebranches. The Judicial Branch (Supreme Court and other Article IIIfederal courts). If a law is passed and it is challenged becausesomeone or a group thinks it is not allowed under the Constitution,the federal courts can rule that it is "unconstitutional" andtherefore void. (MORE)
Answer The US Judicial branch, or the federal court system, uses judicial review to declare actions by the President or Congress to be invalid if they are contrary to the Constitution. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land and no presidential act or congressional laws may conflict wit…h it. The Courts are the interpreters of the laws and as such they interpret the Constitution and laws to decide if they conflict with one another. This power is not unlimited. No court can consider the constitutionality of a law unless the law is a relevant part of a "case or controversy" before the court. The Supreme Court of the United States is head of the Judicial branch of government and the ultimate authority on constitutionality. Chief Justice John Marshall clearly affirmed the Court's right of judicial review in the case Marbury v. Madison, (1803), when the Court declared Section 13 of the Judicial Act of 1789 unconstitutional. (MORE)

What are three powers that the legislative and the judicial branch have that can limit the executive branch?
In the Judicial Branch, the Supreme Court would determine if the laws made by Congress were constitutional or lawful.
The Executive Branch (The President). If Congress passes a bill (proposed law) that the President opposes, he/she can write the word "Veto" on the bill and send it back to Congress. (The word "veto" means, "I forbid.") The president may call Congress into special session "on extraordinary occas…ions" to take care of unfinished or new legislative business--e.g., to pass a law without which the president feels he cannot carry out his promises or responsibilities. The Executive Branch checks the Judicial Branch by choosing which judges are able to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. The President chooses who becomes a Justice of the Supreme Court. The Legislative Branch (Congress). If the President vetoes a bill, Congress can pass the bill anyway, if the bill can get a 2/3 majority of the votes in both houses of Congress.

Is State laws under the jurisdiction of the executive legislative or judicial branch of the Government?
State laws fall under the jurisdiction of the judicial branch ofgovernment. If a law is thought to be unconstitutional or unjust itis reviewed in the highest court ,the supreme court.
What are the responsibilities of the Legislative Branch the Executive Branch and the Judicial Branch?
The Legislative branch makes the laws (In more detail) Legislature is a type of representative deliberative assembly with the power to create, amend, and change laws.The law created by a legislature is called legislation or statutory law. Legislatures are known by many names, the most common bein…g parliament and congress, although these terms also have more specific meanings. The Executive branch carries out those laws (In more detail) In political science and constitutional law, the executive is the branch of government responsible for the day-to-day management of the state. In many countries, it is referred to simply as the government , but this usage can be confusing in an international context. The executive branch contains the head of government, who is the head of this branch. Also Known As The Presidents Job.... And the Judicial branch explains those laws, conducts trails and test the laws to make sure that they are consitutional (in more detail) In law, the judiciary (also known as the judicial system or judicature ) is the system of courts which administer justice in the name of the sovereign or state, a mechanism for the resolution of disputes. It usually consists of a court of a final appeal (called the 'supreme court' or 'constitutional court') and other lower courts. Obama runs the executive branch for now. (MORE)
Checks and balances is important to check the constution and make sure that the president makes the right law. When the president makes a law people can check whether it fits the constution and if it is helpful to the citizen. When there is no judicial branch no one can check the constution. When th…ere is no executive branch, there is no approval on the law made by the president. When there is no legeslative branch, there is no one to make the law because there is no president. When there is no judicial branch or executive, the president could make as much as laws as he want. And the law could be for himself. When this happens, things could happen like what happened to Fujimori. Fujimori had total control over the country. As a result he went to jail. This is how the three branches all work together really well. As a matter of fact none of the branches can overule each other. (MORE)
A Legislative 'check' against the Judicial Branch is that Federal Judges are confirmed (become seated Judges) by the Senate. Another is not exactly a check but, if the Federal Courts strike-down a law (invalidate it by finding that it is not Constitutional) Congress can recreate and pass a similar l…aw. They just have to fix whatever problems the Federal Courts found with the previous law. I think that another check is that if a Federal Judge is to be impeached, the House of Representatives drafts and approves the articles of impeachment (the charges or grounds for impeachment) and the Senate hears the impeachment trial and rules on the articles of impeachment. Some Legislative checks on the Executive Branch are that Congress approves funding for all Federal expenditures, so they approve the budgets for all the Executive agencies and departments, and funds any Presidential initiatives. The Senate also confirms Presidential nominations and appointments, such as Cabinet Department heads. Congress also must approve many Presidental acts, like declarations of war. Another is that if the President vetoes, or doesn't sign, a bill passed by Congress, Congress can override the veto by a super-majority vote (I think 2/3rds majority vote). (MORE)
The executive check over the legislative branch is the power of vetoing laws. The executive check over the judicial branch is the power of judicial appointment -- the president can pick a judge to take the seat of a judge who leaves the supreme court.
The judicial branch has powers to interpret laws, or regulations or other actions of the executive branch, or to declare them unconstitutional. It serves as a "check" on the executive by having the power to interpret the law differently than the executive, and having that interpretation supercede th…e interpretation of the executive branch. In addition, the judicial branch resolves disputes between the executive branch and citizens or businesses, providing a "check" on any excesses of the executive branch. (MORE)
The Constitution sets out three branches of government; ExecutiveBranch (Lead by the president), the Legislative Branch (Lead bycongress) and the Judicial Branch (Lead by the Supreme Court).

\nThe legislative branch is composed of 535 members. 100 of which are senators, there are 2 senators per each state, and 435 representatives which are allocated according to each states population.
Why should The judicial branch of the government have greater power to check the legislative and executive branches?
\nWell think, would it be fair for the Executive and legislative branch to be able to check each other and the judicial branch but the judicial branch can check neither.
A government in which the executive and legislative branches are separated and coequal is called?
the executive branch carries out laws/ enforces laws, while the judicial branch determines if laws are constitutional, the legislative branch makes laws
There is no concrete "divsion" which established the three branches of government (legislative, executive, judicial). It was just a decision. The model is based largely on the political theory/analysis of Baron de Montesquieu, but it was really just an abritrary invention.. It could have just as ea…sily been divided into one branch, or two branches, or ten, or one hundred. Or, the three branches could have have been divided differently: Church, State, and Business; Land, Sea, and Air; Animal, Vegetable, and Mineral; Rock, Paper, Scissors. When a group seizes power by force, they're pretty much free to formulate it anyway they want. There is no natural division of government power. (MORE)
The executive branch checks the judicial branch by choosing which judges are able to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. The President chooses who becomes a Justice of the Supreme Court. The President is also able to veto bills proposed by Congress if he disagrees with it. The judicial branch has the …power of judicial review and is able to decide which laws are constituional and which are not. If they are not, they can nullify them. The legislative branch checks the other branches by agreeing or disagreeing to their choices. If the President wants to do something, he has to get it passed by Congress first. Congress also has a voice in who becomes a Justice of the Supreme Court. I may be missing some details. (MORE)
Which principle is the basis for forming a government with judicial legislative and executive branches?
The use of three different branches of government is an example of what is known as checks and balances. Each branch has some capacity to correct errors or abuses that are committed by the other two branches. Thus, the government becomes self correcting, at least in theory. (In practice, all 3 branc…hes can be dysfunctional at the same time.) (MORE)
The Judicial Branch uses judicial review to evaluate Acts of Congress and Presidential Executive Orders to determine if they adhere to constitutional principles. This power is not unlimited. No court can consider the constitutionality of a law unless the law is a relevant part of a "case or contro…versy" before the court. If the US Supreme Court determines a law is unconstitutional, it becomes nullified and unenforceable. Chief Justice John Marshall clearly affirmed the Court's right of judicial review in the case Marbury v. Madison, (1803), when the Court declared Section 13 of the Judicial Act of 1789 unconstitutional. (MORE)
thelegislative branch legislates, or makes up, the laws. The executive branch carrys out and enforces these laws. the judical branch decides what to do if anyone breaks the laws (court)
What would happen if any of the three government branches executive judicial or legislative were to greatly exceed its authority under the Constitution?
There would be abuse of power and corruption at all levels. The three branches of government have been designed and created to keep the "check and balances" system in place, exactly to prevent abuse and corruption from happening.
Yes the judicial branch can check out the other two branches by the use of declaring laws unconstitutional. A law that is declared unconstitutional it automatically deemed died because it can not go into effect, even if the president and congress approved it the supreme court can reject it if it d…oes not follow or is against the United States Constitution. This is basically the equivalent to the presidents vote except you can not over ride it. (MORE)
Because he was the founding father of America. He couldn't always have it his way, he had to think of the people too. He wanted the executive, ledislative, and judicial so there could be sections for Congress.
They are supposed to be but over the years, the executive branch has usurped (stolen) powers that do not Constitutionally belong to it. And Congress has cooperated. That's why we are in real danger of becoming a dictatorship just as happened to the formerly free republic of Germany when the Nazi's… took over. (MORE)
Laws are made by the legislative branch of government. The executive branch executes the laws, and the judicial branch interprets the laws.

Lifetime Appointments of Supreme Court Judges. Because Supreme Court Judges cannot be removed from office by anyone, they can operate more independently from politicians and the politicial mileux in general.

The three branches set up by the constitution. Legislative is the congress or senate. Executive is the president and his cabinet. Judicial is the supreme court. They all have their own duties to make a good government
The Judicial branch has what is known as Judicial Review , which means the Judicial Branch may invalidate laws made by the Legislative branch and executive orders made by the Executive branch that it determines is unconstitutional.
The judicial branch interprets the laws made by the legislative branch and tests their constitutionality.
The US government was specifically set up so that no branch was "higher" than any other.
The third branch, the judicial branch, rules on the actions of the legislature (laws) and executive branch (orders, policies) to ensure that they do not violate the Constitution.
exceutive branch is the president and the senate legislative branch is where laws are made the judicial is the branch who intrept law and are the final decision of a case
Executive's checks - Nominating power, Presidential Pardon All members to the federal judiciary must be nominated by the President first, so the executive has say as to who is able to serve in federal courts. In addition, the President holds the discretion to pardon individuals charged with… or convicted of federal offenses. Legislature's checks - Confirmation of Nominations, Constitutional Amendments Congress (more specifically, the Senate) also has a say in which people serve in the federal Judiciary by the requirement that nominations be confirmed by the Senate. As a last resort, should the Judiciary overturn an Act of Congress, the two houses can bring forth a Joint Resolution to amend the United States Constitution. The barrier to such an act is justifiably high (both houses must approve by a 2/3 majority, then 3/4 of state legislatures must ratify it). But the Judiciary has no say in this matter, and should the amendment be ratified, it essentially becomes part of the fundamental law, forcing the courts to abide by it. (MORE)
In many different ways.. The president may appoint the supreme court judges and his cabinet- but only with Congress's approval. The president can veto a corrupt Congress, but Congress can overturn a corrupt president's veto (with a 2/3 majority). The supreme court can strike down an unconstitutio…nal congressional law.. Congress can also impeach a president, like Nixon.. (MORE)
Legislative, judicial and executive are three federal governmentbranches. The three branches are powered by the U.S Constitution,the president and the federal courts.
