On Tuesday - in his dissenting opinion to the Arizona immigration case - Justice Scalia lashed out at President Obama - for not doing enough to enforce immigration laws. With his blatant impartiality and total disregard for the institution of the Supreme Court - isn't it time Justice Scalia was impeached?




Way back in 1803 - Supreme Court Justice Samuel Chase really stepped in it. Thomas Jefferson was the President of the United States at the time - and his supporters in Congress called themselves Democratic Republicans. Jefferson's chief political rival was John Adams - who he defeated in the election of 1800 - and Adams led the Federalists against the Democratic Republicans. The Federalists fought hard to protect the wealthy elite - succeeding in eliminating the direct election of U.S. Senators by the people. While you can't compare them apples to apples - the Federalists are basically today's Republican Party - at least in their belief that society is best organized when there's a wealthy ruling elite at the top. Samuel Chase - who was appointed to the High Court in 1796 - proudly called himself a Federalists. So Thomas Jefferson was already a little uneasy with Samuel Chase as a Supreme Court justice. And after Chase joined other Federalists on the Supreme Court to create judicial review in the 1803 Marbury v. Madison case that gave the court the power to strike down laws passed by both Congress and the President - making it the most powerful, and unaccountable, of the three branches of government - Jefferson's anger with the court - and Samuel Chase - only intensified.
