Time for Congress to Impeach Justice Antonin Scalia

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 US 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 ...

The most important question is not being asked in this election...

There're a lot of questions being thrown around this Presidential campaign between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Somnifugously Ugly!

The Good! *Russell Dohner* While the fate of healthcare in America rests in the hands of the Supreme Court - one Illinois doctor is doing all he can to provide Americans with quality affordable healthcare. The Bad! *The TSA* First came the porno scanners - and then the invasive and unnecessary pat-downs. Now - to add to their list of security theater blunders - the TSA is illegally opening human remains, spilling them and laughing about it. And the Very Very Ugly! *Alabama Lawmakers* A bizarre law from 1939 allows Alabama's sheriffs to keep any leftover money that is given to them by the state to feed prison inmates. And - as a result - there is a big incentive for sheriffs to give subpar food to prison inmates - just so they can pad their own wallets.

Could a giant tidal wave wipe out the East Coast?

It might be wise to reconsider buying waterfront property on the East coast of the United States. A new report by the US Geological Survey finds that sea-levels are rising four times faster along the east coast of the US than they are globally. This sea level rise will increase the likelihood of flooding and high intensity storms in major cities along the east coast like New York, Boston, and even Washington, DC. But that's just the start of it. The International Energy Agency is warning that if carbon emissions continue increasing at their current rate - then global temperatures will increase by six degrees Celsius by 2100, killing off most of the large animals on the planet - and thus threatening the survival of that species at the top of the food chain - us! So just how troubling is this news - and what needs to be done about it? Miles Grant joins Thom Hartmann - he is a Reporter and Blogger with the National Wildlife Federation.
