Obama and Supreme Court Order Strip Searches For Minor Offences Too, Impeach Them All

From Denny:  The Supreme Court, in its demented wisdom, decided to put all of America on notice.  We all can be strip searched for no good reason.  America is now under lock down and an official police state.  Worried about safety in the jail system, the "Justices" have now effectively jailed all of America.

Over 700,000 people get arrested for minor offences in America every year.  For what did they get strip searched?  Get this:  riding a bike with an inaudible bell, walking a dog off a leash or driving with a noisy muffler.

A nun was strip searched for trespassing during an anti-war demonstration, if you drive without a license, failing to use a turn signal are all incidents where this strip search procedure has been employed.  Talk about outrageous.

The Justices and President Obama seem to think that the 13 million jailed in America annually are impossible to responsibly process without the humiliation and invasion of privacy of strip searches, once reserved for terrorists,  murderers and drug dealers.  Haven't they ever heard of drug sniffing dogs or airport security equipment?

They argue that some of the most heinous criminals were stopped for small offences.  True.  But do you have to strip search 300 million people to catch three guys like Timothy McVey, the Oklahoma bomber, one 9/11 terrorist and the Son of Sam serial killer?  The terrorists have won in the world of the Republican Justices because we are all prisoners now.

The Republican Justices outvoted the wiser Democratic Justices to enslave America to this fear mindset police state.  How disingenuous are these Republicans who lay claim to personal liberty and rights under the Constitution?  Any one of us can now be arrested for a traffic stop for checking car insurance, go to jail, be strip searched.  We can be stopped for jaywalking across the street, go to jail, get strip searched.

Your daughter can look good to a perverted thinking police officer and he has the right to arrest her, take her to jail, and, you guessed it, get an eyeful and strip search her.  Police who are perverts, police who are racists and women-haters can all order you to get naked for an anal probing strip search, supposedly checking for drugs.  You have no recourse.  You have no rights, not any more in this country.  Thank the Republicans and President Obama.

Hey, if the government gets it wrong, it's OK by this Supreme Court that believes they rule the land.  Well, guess what, it's about time right now to start the impeachment process for several of these conservative activist judges.  Justice Scalia gives absolutely no pretense of trying to be an impartial judge as evidenced by the current health care consideration before the court, not willing to consider all angles before making a decision.  Justice Thomas falls asleep or reads and then turns to Scalia and asks what to decide.  Need I say more?

It's outrageous.  It's time for these people to go.  It's also time Congress get a spine and put a time limit on the Justices, no longer allowing these appointments to go for a lifetime.  Clearly the absolute power has gone to their heads.  Too many of our current justices are either incompetent, in extremely ill health, or worse, clearly suffering from dementia.

The impeachment process involves both the House and the Senate.  The House brings "the articles of impeachment" where the wrong doing is stated, acting like a grand jury and the Senate holds the trial.  A two-thirds majority vote is required to convict.  Once convicted, the justice is immediately removed from office.

Since the Justices are federal judges they are subject to the law for impeachment and can be forcibly removed from office.  They can be impeached for more than criminal offences.

Article 2, Section 4 of the Constitution states: "The president, vice president and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors." 

Article 3 discusses good behavior of judges, without defining it.  The website, states the reasons for impeachment of a federal judge aren't limited to criminal acts.

To date only one justice was impeached by the House:  Samuel Chase in 1804.  He was accused of basing his court decisions upon political bias and misconduct.  The Senate decided to acquit him in 1805 and he returned to the bench.  Sounds like political connections saved his bacon.

Perhaps it's time to mount the fight to impeach again.  Clearly, several of these conservative judges, Scalia and Thomas in particular, meet the criteria for impeachment because of obvious political bias.  Scalia's misconduct during the Bush years certainly is legendary right here in Louisiana and was chronicled in the national news regularly, alluding to bribery.

Isn't it time we take back our individual rights and quit allowing all the wrong people in high places to pervert the Constitution?  It's time to throw the perverts out of government, people trying to pass for thoughtful judges.

And, while we are at it, we must impeach President Obama and throw Eric Holder out of the Department of Justice.  It is Obama and Holder that argued for this across the board strip search in the first place.  Is this White House brain dead?  Don't they realize that because they are black and Democrats that they are some of the first people who will "enjoy" this idiot policy once they are out of office?

Is this the ugly world Obama wants for his daughters where they will be at the mercy of creeps and perverts?  They cannot have Secret Service protection forever, and, sooner or later, they will be subject to the same laws and predators as the rest of America.

Expect a team of police at your door any day now, ready to demand you enjoy a strip search.  The imbalance of power is grave as a result of this Supreme Court ruling.  It's only a matter of time before it reaches these outrageous proportions.  You cannot do a damn thing about it.

And people wonder where the rise in bullying and abuse has its roots in America?  It sits on the door mat of this White House, this DOJ and this Supreme Court:  all incredibly insensitive, and, more importantly, absolutely corrupt.

It's time we had a game changer of who is running for President in this 2012 election.  Clearly, President Obama is no longer a good candidate and does not deserve reelection after this huge gaffe.  Obama and the conservative Justices should be ashamed of themselves for this outrageous action.

You can't get more politically stupid than pushing this bully ruling onto the American people.  Welcome to the Obama Strip Search Reality Show.
