== == One is the fact that the judicial branch needs the executive branch to enforce its decisions. As an example, when the Supreme Court ruled that segregation in public schools was unconstitutional in Brown v. Bd. of Education of Topeka, it took the President's ordering the National Guard out to make some states abide by the ruling. The Judicial Branch has no way to enforce its decisions without the executive's co-operation. Another is the fact that it is the executive branch that nominates the judges in the first place. As a practical matter, presidents nominate persons who share the same political beliefs they do. This has the effect of creating (or trying to create) a judicial branch that will interpret the Constitution the way that that president would like. Trouble is, once a Supreme Court Justice is confirmed, nothing can be done to force him or her to rule in a particular way. They are appointed with lifetime tenure on good behavior and their salaries cannot be diminished while they are in office. And as to salaries, nothing says a president has to include raises for them in any budget he proposes.

The President must approve of legislation the What_are_some_of_the_checks_and_balances_the_Executive_branch_has_over_the_other_brancheshas passed before that legislation becomes effective. If the President vetoes that legislation, the Legislative Branch may still pass the legislation, but it now must be by a majority of 2/3 of each house of Congress, instead of the usual simple majority.

Another is that while Congress passes the laws, it is the Executive Branch that carries them out. Without the Executive branch's co-operation, the actions of the Legislative branch might not have any effect.

Judges, once appointed for life, are free from controls from the executive branch

Courts can judge executive actions to be unconstitutional through the power of judicial review

Another View: The checks and balances system of the US government works (theoretically) that any two of the three branches can control the third, The Judicial Branch DOES have controls over them exercised by both the Legislative AND the Executive Branch.

Executive's checks - Nominating power, Presidential PardonAll 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 pardonindividuals charged with or convicted of federal offenses.

Legislature's checks - Confirmation of Nominations, Constitutional AmendmentsCongress (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.

Checks and balances. The Executive branch has power over (checks the power of) the Judiciary branch by way of choosing who to appoint. The Legislative branch has power over (keeps in check) the Judiciary branch by way of choosing whether to confirm the appointments. The Legislative Branch also has power over (keeps in check) the Executive branch because the appointments to the Supreme Court require their approval.
