Columbus - 

State Representative John Becker (R-Union Township) has reiterated his call for the US Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings against Judge Timothy S. Black, United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. The charges of malfeasance and abuse of power are spelled out in House Concurrent Resolution 37.

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. This is a clear violation of Article XV, Section 11 of the Ohio Constitution and the Tenth Amendment of the US Constitution. He persists in allowing his personal political bias to supersede jurisprudence.

In December 2013, Judge Black ruled that his opinion be made “permanent” regarding “homosexual marriage” being recognized on death certificates.

In July 2013, Judge Black ordered that Ohio must recognize the “homosexual marriage” of John Arthur and James Obergefell. Additionally in September 2013, Judge Black ordered that Ohio must recognize the “homosexual marriage” of William Herbert Ives (deceased) and David Michener.

The federal government has an ever growing propensity to violate state sovereignty. Although this has been a trend since the early 19th century, it has accelerated exponentially in recent decades.

Rather than the solution, the federal judiciary has been the primary problem. Federal judges are appointed for life, and the states and people (except as otherwise represented in Congress) are powerless against them. To that end, the US House of Representatives has the power to impeach and the US Senate has the power to remove them from office. This will begin the process of restoring state sovereignty back to the original intent of the US Constitution.

The drafters of the Constitution have provided this mechanism beyond appeal for the people to remove life appointments. Since 1797, there have been eight federally appointed judges removed from office and three more that resigned prior to their potential removal.

HCR 37 is being considered by the Judiciary Committee.
