John Roberts may face impeachment

Please! Tell me this isn't a dream!

Rep. Peter DeFazio - an Oregon Democrat who is cruising to reelection - is investigating possible impeachment of Chief Justice John Roberts.

The impetus for this impeachment drive is Roberts's vote on the fascist Citizens United ruling. During his confirmation hearings, Roberts pledged he would not practice judicial activism. He lied. And this perjury is the basis of DeFazio's probe.

In the likely event that the Democrats retain the House, I'd love to see what excuses the DLC will come up with not to impeach Roberts. Will it be the same excuses they used not to impeach Bush, even after the Democrats promised to do so?

Plus, there's a difference between impeachment and removal. The almost certainly insurmountable part of this effort would be getting the Senate to remove Roberts. But that doesn't change the facts of the case: Roberts committed perjury and is violating his oath of office by intentionally legislating from the bench.

It also doesn't change the fact that Roberts was appointed by a rogue regime. Because Bush stole the election twice, Roberts's appointment should be declared null and void.



  1. He's not being impeached. Sorry to burst your bubble.

  2. Also, Bush won twice. And striking down unconstitutional laws isn't judicial activism.
