"Jay,   I think Roberts was right on the law in the health care case bc the indiv mandate as a tax is clearly within the law bc Congress may levy taxes for projects it deems important. I largely agree w you on the impeach-Scalia issue and…"

"I was more surprised @ Jesus rising from the dead on what literally seemed like the third day @ my son's Xmas play than at your call for Scalia's impeachment. Clinton abused an intern and destroyed her life. I actually had to sit through…"

"and Cliton was acquitted and those who placed him on trial made asses of themselves  i want no part of an effort that is bound to make our agenda look weak and going for a judicial impeachment on this basis would   night!"

"I just meant that in Davis' case it was a specious event, and there's nothing to prevent the Senate from doing likewise.  The Clinton impeachment was absurd on its face, even though the House GOP leaders said it was his lying in…"

"Mouthing what you and I consider prejudicial views does not remotely constitute the kinds of public trust breaches the Constitution refers to. An example of a brief that's impeachable would be taking money to swing a case."

" I read the piece on Article II, Section 4, but there seems to be a varied viewpoint that going against the public trust should also be considered.  I'm sensing that the Senate can do whatever the hell it likes, just as the Supreme…"

"Davis wasn't Impeached. Nor was he tried at a legislative court (which happens after an impeachment). Davis was Recalled by a vote after a required number of names on a Recall Petition was filed.  They are very different processes,…"

"I think what is necessary is getting the votes.  Other than that, there's nothing to stop anyone from getting impeached or removed (see Gray Davis in California 9 years ago!)  Yes, it's difficult to attain, even a dilution of the…"

"See U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 4. Justice Scalia's remarks, odious as they are, just don't qualify for impeachment. Article II, Section 4"

Jonathan Wolfman commented on Michael Russnow's blog post Scalia's Gay Stance is Unacceptable: Recusal From Supreme Court Deliberations on DOMA and California Prop 8 Is Called For
"I think if you read just what's necessary to impeach a federal judge you'll quickly see that under the Constitution, remarks you and I deem as prejudicial don't qualify., would not come close to sustaining an impeachment move. We have…"

"And yes, I think voting on the constitutional rights of any minority is a horrid practice and that is a prime reasin I want us to win this at the Court."

"I thought about the same thing, with respect to a 4-4 vote, because it would keep things as they are in California, but might actually sustain the DOMA ruling.  Here's a thought, my throw-away at the end, re impeachment!  Unlikely,…"

"I take your points. At the same time one could just as easily say that Justice Thomas ought not hear these kinds of cases. Further, you are, in effect, arguing for the disqualification of a justice (and judges anywhere) who have spoken or written in…"

"Thanks for commenting.  I do think, however, that a "bias" in favor of rights, as opposed to fostering a discriminatory viewpoint against people is a completely different thing.  Scalia's prejudices impact on an area of…"

Now That Trump’s Trashed The Paris Climate Accord: Isn’t This Enough To Discuss Changing The Presidential Election System?

Posted on June 3, 2017 at 12:48pm 47 Comments

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. When will our reasonable leaders, progressive and moderate ― even clearheaded conservatives ― come to grips with the reality that we have an unelected, dysfunctional president, selected by an archaic, outmoded Electoral College that must be abolished or circumvented?…

Donald Trump, His Comportment And Incompetence: When Is Enough Enough?

Posted on May 18, 2017 at 12:58am 5 Comments

Four months in, yet it’s not unfair to ask Americans, especially political leaders, Republicans and Democrats, when is enough enough?



Donald Trump, who wasn’t elected by the…

James Comey, Legal Moralist Or Self-Serving Unconscionable Fool?

Posted on May 4, 2017 at 12:09pm 4 Comments

Yesterday in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee he admitted it was “a hard choice” and that the idea of impacting the election made him “mildly nauseous.”

Mildly nauseous? What a fortified stomach lining he must have, contrasting his concerns about doing so with remaining silent as he testified, “Concealment, in my view, would have…
