Here Come the Dominionists

I always thought the concept of the Dominionists was a wacky conspiracy theory (particular to the left), kind of like the trilateral commission, the masons, etc.
Well, I think I was wrong, and this is just plain old scary:

A bill making alarming progress in committee would effectively strip federal courts of most review power and shift it to the attorney general. That's right: the chief prosecutor of the United States would become the judge of whether state courts behave fairly enough toward defendants appealing capital convictions. If a state system was certified as up to snuff, then the federal courts would lose their jurisdiction and condemned defendants their last hope.
