Chiswell, VA, School of Amateur Lawyering. May I refer you to the US Constitution: ARTICLE III, Section 1 “Judges . . . shall hold their office during good behavior” ARTICLE II Section 4 - The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. "high crimes and Misdemeanors" has got to cover almost everything. The only problem is the House of Representatives and the Senate. Elections matter!

You are correct in theory, but in practice, Buchanan was absolutely correct.

Never, for any reason, has a supreme court justice ever been removed from office, no matter how legally illiterate their rulings have been.

Just because it hasn't happened doesn't mean it won't. If I were ever elected to Congress I'd sell my vote to the Republicans--vote any way they said on any issue--for the right to bring up one judge per month for impeachment. Even if I didn't get any of them out, it would move the ball. Oathbreakers should be removed from office, but if that doesn't happen, at least they should be publicly shamed for breaking their oaths to uphold the Constitution.

Remember when the Newt said bring one of them before Congress to explain theirself. Remember the left-wing hysteria?

I don't know about Newt, but Ginsberg would be my candidate, she took the oath to "protect and defend" and then went to a foreign land, Egypt, and attacked instead of defending the constitution. She should be the first. Number One.

The Constitution set up the House of Representatives as "first among equals" because the founders considered them closest to the people (all of them every 2 years). Just look at the powers endowed in the House by Article I. I would - in a second - vote for a Rep that promised to start the impeachment of a judge such as Ginsberg (or about half of the 9th circuit).

It took Joe Biden's public embrace of same-sex marriage to smoke him out.

But after Joe told David Gregory of "Meet the Press" he was "absolutely comfortable" with homosexuals marrying, Barack Obama could not maintain his credibility with the cultural elite if he stuck with the biblical view that God ordained marriage as solely between a man and woman. The biblical view had to go.

Obama had to move, or look like a malingerer in secularism's next great moral advance into post-Christian America.

Consider. Obama had an appearance coming up on "The View," where Whoopi Goldberg would...
