There is only one power that trumps the federal government, legislature and judiciary.
The Big One that reverts temporary power back to the people - Constitutional Convention.

It requires two thirds of the state legislatures notifiying congress that a convention is to be held, then it is automatic. Congress can't prevent it - by any legal means.
Since there has been only one its debatable how the convention would be held; but the people - and no one in the federal government - would select and send the delegates from their states.
Common thought seems to agree that state legislatures would only forward such a petition upon agreement of an amendment or amendments to be ratified; getting the legislatures off their butts to do so would be an interesting undertaking.
The founders included this proviso to allow for dealing with congress should it ever become the corrupt sink it has in fact become.
How about one restoring election of senators to the state legislatures - with a proviso that those senators can be subject to recall by majority vote of said legislature.
That would scare the HELL out of these rancid sahibs that call themselves our Senate.
Think about it - it is our only resort short of revolution.
Let the Socratic dialogue begin.
