Normally, you’d expect bad judges to get taken out by the good ones. But what do you do when you don’t have any Dredd-tier judges around to deliver righteous justice?
This is how you deal with uppity, corrupt judges – you just fire em’ all.
This is a great development – there’s a lot of judges that are in dire need of a good booting in America, and it was about time we got started cleaning em’ out.
West Virginia lawmakers completed the extraordinary move of impeaching all four state Supreme Court justices Monday night for spending issues, including a suspended justice facing a 23-count federal indictment. The state House of Delegates voted to impeach Justice Allen Loughry on eight articles, setting the stage for a trial in the state Senate.
Beth Walker became the final justice to be impeached when an article was approved stating all four justices abused their authority. It said they failed to control office expenses, including more than $1 million in renovations to their individual offices, and not maintaining policies over matters such as working lunches and the use of state vehicles and office computers at home.
This is at the state level.
But over the past two years, we’ve seen federal judges “abusing their authority” over and over again, blocking Trump’s actions even when such things are completely outside of the judiciary’s mandate.
The exact same thing could be done with them.
Sounds like there’s a lot of impeachin’ to do.
Walker had dodged impeachment earlier Monday night when lawmakers decided to overlook her $131,000 in spending on office renovations. A short time later, another article was withdrawn against Chief Justice Margaret Workman, who spent $111,000 in renovations.
Justice Robin Davis was impeached for $500,000 in office renovations. And lawmakers approved articles against Loughry for spending $363,000 in renovations to his office; having a $42,000 antique desk and computers, all owned by the state, at his home; lying to the House Finance Committee about taking home the desk and a $32,000 suede leather couch; and for his personal use of state vehicles.
Loughry, Workman and Davis also were impeached for their roles in allowing senior status judges to be paid higher than allowed wages. Lawmakers say the overpayments violated state law and stopped when they were challenged by the Internal Revenue Service.
Wow, these people are all corrupt, money-grubbing scumbags.
Basically, they’re all getting impeached over corruption charges. That’s fine, but I’m guessing it’s easier to accomplish than impeaching over improper, politically motivated rulings and restraining orders.
To clean up the federal judiciary would probably require the supreme court to rule that these blanket restraining orders over the executive are unconstitutional, which would then allow congress to begin impeaching the judges who persist in hampering the Trump agenda with these illegal rulings.
And such a supreme court ruling is said to be in the works.
Another impeachment article was withdrawn dealing with an accusation Loughry used state money to frame personal items at his office.
Minority Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee that approved the articles last week had tried to speed up the impeachment process in the hopes of beating an Aug. 14 deadline for arranging a special election in November if any justice is removed from office or leaves office. Instead, the committee took its time, even conducting a tour of the state Supreme Court offices earlier this month.
Republican Gov. Jim Justice will be allowed to appoint new justices to replace any who are impeached — with no requirement that they be from the same party as the incumbent.
Democrats have accused Republicans of attempting to wrest the court away from voters, who elected the current justices in nonpartisan elections.
The new replacement judges will likely all be Republicans, which I guess is great for the people of West Virginia.
The same principle would apply at the federal level – Trump would be able to appoint anyone he likes to the federal courts. This would deal a devastating blow to the damn Jew kritarchy stifling American populism.
Judges need to be put back in their place, which is to apply the law as written and intended. I guess they also need to stop spending hundreds of thousands of tax-payer’s money to renovate their offices, lol.
But this is a very good sign of things to come. If the entire supreme court of a state can be cleared out in a short time, then imagine what great things are possible in the future…
