    US elections 2012: Newt Gingrich suggests 'activist' judges could be arrested - Telegraph

    So, anyone that Gingrich disagress with in the Supreme Court could be arrested?

    Anyone else concerned this country is trying to turn fascist?

    No, the dumbass statements are lighting the highways via mirrors in space.

    Newt is actually telling us what he'd do as president, and to tell ya the truth, it sounds pretty fascist to me.

    Never thought I'd actually see fascist statements being made by American politicians running for president, but now I have.

    I don't think he does want to win. He makes a lot of money peddling influence. He thinks running for pres burnishes his street cred.

    Well.........looks like standard protocol has been when a GOP candidate starts to tank, they start throwing red meat to the base, which mean appealing to teabaggers, which in turn means they have to say some really aberrant stuff.

    Unless a Judge broke a law he can not be "arrested". In the case in point the recourse is to impeach him. The President has no power to Impeach or arrest a Judge neither on any Federal Bench or at the Supreme Court.

    Even if Gingrich were elected he could not, nor could any other person sitting as President legally order the arrest of a Federal Judge for any decision they made UNLESS that decision BREAKS an actual LAW.

    Congress not the President and not the Justice Department impeach Judges.

    You are making a mountain out of a mole hill, as usual.

    We all have discussed activist judges who want to make law instead of interpreting the constitution. How many times was Kagan overturned by upper courts yet there she sits on the SCOTUS? Activists have no place on the bench. If they feel so impelled to changed mandated law, they belong in Congress where the people can vote them out, if desired.

    Lack of that, if they find themselves on the bench, I find impeachment the proper route to have them removed. The bench is to FOLLOW Laws, not scoot around them.
