Daily Beast Columnist Calls for the Removal of SCOTUS Justices if Obamacare Struck Down



Washington DC: United States Supreme Court

Washington DC: United States Supreme Court (Photo credit: wallyg)

In a downright chilling look into the mind of a radical progressive, we get a glimpse of how supporters of Obama’s unpopular healthcare law view a loss on the fight at the SCOTUS. They view it as a call for impeachment of Justices who act in accordance with the founding commands of our governing documents. You read that right, a progressive columnist is calling for the impeachment of any Justice who votes to strike down Obamacare, if indeed they are successful in doing so.

The author includes this zinger of a line.

In the end, however, it is the duty of the people to protect the Constitution from the court. Social progress cannot be held hostage by five unelected men.

Actually, radical social progressivism can and should be held hostage by five individuals who are appointed by an elected Commander in Chief. In fact it should be held hostage by 9 individuals who are appointed by an elected Commander in Chief.

The column rips the founding/early years of our nation and only credits the radical leftist years of late as being a decent product of America. Ben Shapiro shreds this up quite nicely.

This is a massive rewriting of American history, except on the issues of sex and race (which had nothing to do with Supreme Court rulings, for the most part). The fact is that during this period, America turned from an economic backwater into the most powerful economic force on the planet. The U.S. infant mortality rate at the beginning of the 20thcentury was 10 percent … but the infant mortality rate in Great Britain was about 40 percent higher than that. As for corporations exerting influence, can we really argue that anything changed during the last century? And can we argue that the corporations that dominated American life at the beginning of the 20th century were really horrible for the country overall?

Of course not. So he skews the history. Then he moves on to skewing the law. He says that until the 1930s, essentially, the Court resisted changes to these social ills. Wrong. The Court stood up for the Constitution, which protects ideals like liberty of contract at the state level (Lochner, e.g.). 

But now, of course, the Court’s interpretation of the Constitution must be ruled radically out of bounds by none other than David Dow, based on nothing.

Yet another of the many reasons we simply cannot allow radical progressives to run our government.

    If any people should be impeached it is OBAMA and Pelosi.

    So their upholding the US Constitution is reason to remove them? I guess that mind set explains why they don’t scream for Obummers removal.

      It won’t be long before it will happen I believe its the only way our country can be saved. Maybe more of us should start planting that seed in the minds of the Progressives since they are academia and true cowards they will think twice before trying to start something that they cannot finish.

    People are so stupid. The court can strike down any law they see as unconstitutional. The President cannot touch them. However, the Supreme court has no force behind their opinions. They have no power to implement their opinions.

    Like all so called progressives, if they do not get their way, they believe force is acceptable. Like their idiot leader, they think themselves always right and the rest of us are to be enslaved to them. In a word: no.

    Hey, why don’t we just get rid of Congress, who passed it with out reading it…….. They all must be a product of our school system. Can’t read and don’t know anything about the Constitution or how Government works.

    how about we remove POTUS!!!

    • niki069a

      That would be a start we should start an impeachment movement against him. The same way they start against any elected Conservative that doesn’t go along with their progressive thinking. It’s time we start doing instead of constantly complaing, lets take a page out of their playbook. It works both ways.

    Amazing. They’ve completely shed their sheep’s clothing, haven’t they? If it’s good enough for the president to stop faking it, it’s good enough for all of them.

    These people have never taken an American History class or government class. They really are that crazy left that they don’t know that this is how the system works, and has worked for over 200 years? If they don’t like it, move people.

    And impeach obama.

    • niki069a

      Lets start a movement not impeaching him because you can’t impeach an illegal President but we can start a recall movement to get him out of office by holding a special election. The heads of all these Conservative groups should all get together and gather enough signatures to start a recall movement against him same as Walker’s recall movement in Wisconsin.

    They aren’t progressives, they are subversives, trying to subvert our Constitution, our rights and the economy.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000099353532 Tim Martin

    Of course the liberal media will side with the president, , that is what they do, , ,but we have a constitution that does not give either the president or the congress the authority to that, . .there is a real good reason for that! Just because they can’t write a law that fits the constitutional requirements, they want to bully the SCOTUS for calling them out on it. .

    They better be careful what they ask for…if the courts cannot overturn laws passed by Congress, then by extension they cannot overturn laws approved by the voters. And that will mean that the ban on gay marriage in California cannot be overturned either.

    This is a good example of imperialism.

    Under Article 3 of the US Constitution, the Supreme Court has the authority to judicial review in deciding if a law follows or contradicts the US Constitution. If they decide that a law is unconstitutional, they have the authority to kill the law that is under judicial review.

    daily beast is manned by idiots; impeach this president for trashing the Constitution!

    • niki069a

      You can never impeach him because he’s not a legal President but there is nothing stopping us from starting recall procedures against him. We should put pressure on all the heads of the Conservative groups and let them start gathering signatures for recall and special election that way we will guarantee his removal.
