Klayman Calls for Impeachment of Justices for ACA Case

Klayman Calls for Impeachment of Justices for ACA Case June 28, 2015

There are some well-known rituals that signal the beginning of something special. The first birds singing in springtime. Opening day in baseball. The tournament director saying “shuffle up and deal.” Add to that the first time each week that Larry Klayman calls for someone to be impeached. In this case, it’s the six justices in the majority in the Obamacare case.

The six U.S. Supreme Court justices who voted to uphold ObamaCare should be impeached for abandoning the rule of law, explains attorney Larry Klayman. Klayman stated Thursday morning: “These six Justices have violated their own long-established rules of interpretation for applying statutes to instead advance their own political objectives or burnish their public persona. Such personal goals corrode the role of the Court. The Justices abandoned the rule of law and have become merely a political focus group.”

As Justice Antonin Scalia makes clear in his dissent, the Justices actually rewrote the Affordable Care Act instead of interpreting it. Scalia wrote in dissent that the legacy of the Roberts Court will be “forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites.” Scalia explained that the Court engaged in “somersaults of statutory interpretation” to save ObamaCare, rather than applying neutral and consistent rules to all laws equally…

To preserve the Republic in its last gasps, Congress must impeach these Justices. The U.S. Constitution provides in Article III, Section 1, that “The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behavior.” It does not give judges a term for life but only “during good Behavior.”

And of course, “good behavior” means never, ever disagreeing with Larry Klayman in a ruling. I’m sure that’s exactly what the founding fathers meant when they framed the Constitution. I’m sure there’s a footnote in there that says, “Good behavior shall be defined by the personal whims of a shitty crackpot attorney with a long track record of being sanctioned by courts for being thoroughly incompetent and making bizarre proclamations retrieved from his rectal cavity.”
