Maybe next America will wake up to the fact Israel steal 10.4 million dollars a day.

We're sending that much to @Weasel_Soup and @gabara? What are they doing with all of it?

[–] dublin5 3 points 17 points (+20|-3) ago 

Running an apartheid state. The US's entire military strategy in the Middle East revolves around bombing Israel's neighbors.

It's either a paid shill or a looser with too much time in his hands. You would do well to ignore him.

Maybe, next, the world will wake up to the fact that Israel (Jews) are poisoning the population via Monsanto/BigPharma/etc.. They are trying to "destroy the goy" (in their words).

This is how it goes. Bad democrats. Then bad republicans. At some point you gotta think "it's not the RED team or the BLUE team, it's the fucking elite oligarchs controlling both."

Impeach doesn't mean found guilty. It means accused.

It is still pretty noteworthy to impeach four SC judges. It is hard to get those fuckers out of there

[–] rspix000 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago 

You shouldn't let fact get in your way:

Justices are elected to 12-year terms in staggered, statewide, nonpartisan elections. In years that two seats are up for election, a separate election is held for each seat. Before 2015, the justices of the court were elected in partisan elections; as of August 2018, therefore, three of the four incumbent justices had been elected in partisan elections.

According to the article, if elections aren't scheduled by tomorrow the governor can simply appoint them. If they are elected though then I'd agree the right thing to do would be to replace them with elections.

[–] CryptoBard 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

This is interesting then, how do they stagger terms if they need to appoint... what is it? Four more justices?

[–] ShinyVoater 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

The way it works for every other elected position is that the appointee serves out the term of the person they replace(or a special election can be arranged).

[–] Broc_Lia 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Five I think, another one resigned.

[–] viperguy [S] 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

If impeached they are appointed, not re-re-re-elected in a loop

[–] cuello_rojo 1 points 11 points (+12|-1) ago  (edited ago)

They just made the mistake of getting caught.

Any other state supreme court is just as, if not more corrupt. They're just not as blatant about it.

In fact, every government entity is equally corrupt at the top levels.

The lower level guys usually follow the rules because they're being watched. But the guys on top take public office as a license to steal, steal, steal.

Why do you think people even run for public office?

Yeah there's the salary for doing nothing. But the real action is all the stealing you get to do.

I read a great article a while back about a woman who:

  • Went on welfare

  • Got transferred to a free training program in interior design (highly oversupplied profession)

  • Couldn't find a job, so she got hired by the VA as part of a jobs program

  • They didn't have enough work for a full time interior designer, so they also hired her to sell their old furniture, and keep the profits.

  • She was now responsible for both selling their old furniture and replacing it. Guess what she did? She went around all their hospitals rotating their furniture stock and filling up her bank account.

They stole money for extravagant chambers and offices. I was meeting with a judge a few years back and she had the best leather couch I've ever sat in. It was like sitting in pudding.

well apparently there were some seriously legitimate crimes there.

however some politics was in play:


The only hitch was that the party would need to ensure that the impeachment process ran past August 14 — otherwise, special elections would be held to replace the impeached justices this fall (and thus, Governor Justice would not get to compile a full court of Justice’s justices). If the justices were removed from office after that date, then Justice could have his own personal Supreme Court reign until 2020.

So, the GOP-controlled House Judiciary Committee “took its time, even conducting a tour of the state Supreme Court offices earlier this month,” according to the Associated Press. And late Monday, Republicans in the House of Delegates voted to impeach all of the state’s remaining Supreme Court justices — ensuring that the Senate would be unable to convict them before the August 14 deadline.

Since the justices were elected, and members of the Democratic party, it seems like your basic power grab

The democrats chose to wait to resign (at least some), the rest are getting the boot
