I can think of four justices that should be IMPEACHED, just as soon as the CONSERVATIVES take back the House and Senate.

Sorry, but the only way these 4 scumbags are leaving the court is when they die.

Didn’t happen after Kelo, won’t happen now or later even if the Repubs take it all...

Good luck with that,
Several Supreme Court Justices have been impeached, but none have ever been removed by the Senate.

Under circumstances more clearly corrupt and incompetent than the current court.

The only problem is that the Supremes are supposed to be the ones that decides how the Constitution applies to the case at hand. If they decide it means something, that is what it means. How can you put them on trial for failing to uphold something that they, theoretically, adjudicate?

Words have meaning.
Those meaning are "defined" and "concrete".
Impeachment trials are "political", not "judicial".
The House of Representatives can do "anything" they chose to do, "legislatively".
The "Senate" can do anything they chose to do "politically".
IMPEACH AND REMOVE those US Supreme Court Justices, just as soon as you have the votes.

Can you understand?

Sure, I can understand. But will the American people and the Congress?

I’m just telling you what the barriers are to impeaching a Supreme Court justice on the grounds that he or she didn’t uphold the Constitution. Do you believe Congress has the guts?

NO.

It'll probably take Term Limits on U.S. Supreme Court Justices, as well as Congressmen and Senators.

Wouldn’t term limits on Supreme Court Justices be contrary to the Founders’ intent?

An even better strategy would be for a GOP Congress to abolish all other federal courts (Article III, Section 1), and then start over. We could eliminate every single fiat-loving anti-Constitutional judge in the Federal Court system in one fell swoop.

You need to read the book suggested in post #12.

“I can think of four justices that should be IMPEACHED, just as soon as the CONSERVATIVES take back the House and Senate.”

We the people need to keep bugging our reps and senators until they actually do impeach.

nope....we need the illiterste “progressives” on the court to show even people of average intelligence, the difference between a liberal and a conservative. Don’t forget that checks and balances are very valuable, even the Republicans screw it up sometimes......when we have the likes of Ruth Ginsberg and Sotomaier and now the newest Kagan.....whats to worry about (except their votes). When you prove to the American people over and over again that you are a socialist......you are a socialist
