Ohio Representative Moves to Impeach (Federal) Judge for Pro-Gay Rulings
Christian Headlines ^ | Wednesday, April 09, 2014 | Carrie Dedrick

Posted on 04/09/2014 7:06:18 PM PDT by xzins

Representative John Becker of Ohio has called to impeach a federal judge due to his recent rulings involving gay marriage. Becker says that U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Black has abused his power and went against the state and federal constitution through his pro-gay decisions.

Becker’s office released a statement writing, “In an epic display of arrogance and incompetence, Judge Black announced that he will require the people of Ohio to disregard the Ohio Constitution and force the recognition of ‘homosexual marriages’ performed outside of Ohio. He persists in allowing his personal political bias to supersede jurisprudence.”

In December the judge ruled that state officials must recognize same-sex marriages on death certificates. Black has announced that his next move is to remove Ohio’s gay marriage ban, though the ban was approved by the majority of voters in 2004 reports Christian News.

Representative Becker believes Black’s actions are just cause for dismissal and has proposed a resolution of his impeachment. The resolution has not had received a hearing.

The resolution reads in part, “...the impeachment of rogue federal judges will begin the process of restoring state sovereignty to the original intent of the United States Constitution…”

Black was appointed to the post by President Barack Obama.

These people need to be impeached. It might not stop the march of the homo agenda, but I want to DESTROY these judge’s careers.

One impeachment might get the ball rolling.

Ten impeachments and we might see some fear in activist judges.

“Ten impeachments and we might see some fear in activist judges.”

I don’t see how ANY judge can go against his sworn avowal of the law. IMPEACH THEM.

Decades past time to start impeaching judges who make laws. Justice Roberts included.

Do it, but we will all be called you know what. Truth and morality does not matter anymore, all that matters is the constant accusations, the constant badgering the left hopes will wear everyone down, and it usually works.

Federal judges should be limited to one 10 year term.

I’m OK with 10 years.

I’d prefer something less and renewable on good behavior.

There needs to be a whole lot more of this. Representatives swear an oath to the Constitution and are an equal part in protecting its integrity. The only arrow in their quiver is impeaching those judges over whom they have complete dominion. It’s at their complete discretion what constitutes an impeachable offense. Contravening the law seems like a good place to start. If a couple dozen judges start being removed for fabricating law, the rest might straighten up their acts. Let’s roll.

The President with Senate confirmation of a reappointment or removal. They’d have to have a time frame without which it would go to a House vote.

I’d like to see them staggered like Senators, so 3 years for 9 Scotus justices...therefore 3 years for all lesser courts.

I also like to see them better regionalized. The current court, believe it or not is: 5 New Yorkers, 2 New Jerseyites, 2 Californians, and one Georgian.

They definitely snubs its nose at flyover country.

Someone is finally getting serious about the out of control, lawless ‘judges’. We need to start impeaching judges by assembly line.

The Homomafia will never stop. America needs to destroy those judges who rule unconstitutionally.
And I mean, Destroy them completely. Make them hide the rest of their lives

If Becker could get the rest of the Ohio House and Senate to approve a “sense of the Ohio Legislature” to the US House delegation in Congress, the Ohio Congressman John Boehner would have just cause to begin looking into the impeachment process on this judge.

It would be unseemly for Boehner to ignore his own state legislature.

I am not aware of the makeup of the rest of the Ohio House and Senate. Do you think there is a possibility they could rise to the occasion that has been presented in front of them?

We have a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate here in OH, as well as a Republican Governor. (a part-time RINO), but a Republican nonetheless. It just seems so odd that Ohio went blue the last 2 elections. I claim voter fraud as the reason.

Just like zero and holder disregards their oath to faithfully execute the laws. It’s easy if you have no soul. This is just as evil and destructive as the communists, nazis and mohammadens, just kinder, gentler. The end is the same.

We have a republican house, senate, governor, secty of state, atty general, and supreme court.

If they wanted to get behind this they could easily do it.

“...It would be unseemly for Boehner to ignore his own state legislature....”

Boehner has not shown any inclination to worry about what is or isn’t unseemly, sir...

He’s a sock puppet.

Nancy Pelosi, as the Speaker, PUSHED her party agenda at every opportunity and didn’t back down. She helped shove Obamacare down our throats.

Boehner - our “Pagliacci” crying clown - has done nothing but help the other side.

I don’t see him growing ANYTHING like a pair of stones in the near future.

I wish to see return to sodomy laws, in which sexual contact between men or women is a serious felony.

Rep. John Becker is taking the action that most Americans have been demanding every since Activists Judges have been ruling against the people and for the gay marriage advocates.

Once Becker introduces the Articles of Impeachment, the American people will support him en masse and demand that all other judges that have ruled against out American also be impeached.
