Democrats are terrified of one thing this Supreme Court Justice might do

Democrats are in a panic.

Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation cemented a 5-4 Republican justice-appointed majority.

And now Democrats are terrified this Supreme Court Justice may do one thing.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the most extreme leftist sitting on the court.

She is a pro-abortion and anti-gun radical whose views have shaped a generation of liberal jurisprudence.

But she is also 85 years old.

And she is recovering from a fall at her home where she broke her ribs.

Now some Democrats are questioning why she did not step down when Barack Obama was President so he could appoint a younger leftist.

They fear that Trump could nominate her replacement and the newly expanded Republican senate majority will confirm that candidate.

The Hill reports:

The repercussions of Trump appointees are why some on the left have criticized Ginsburg and 80-year-old Justice Stephen Breyer – another aging member of the court’s liberal wing – for not stepping down when former President Obama was in office.

“Given that she wants her vision of the law to prevail, it was a mistake to hang in there indefinitely,” said Daniel Epps, an associate professor of law at the Washington University School of Law. “If she stays for five more years from now, that’s 2023. Even if there’s a Democratic president elected in 2020, it’s quite possible that Republicans might control the Senate in 2023.”

Epps said that for now, the future of the court is riding on Ginsburg’s health.

“We shouldn’t be in this position where the future of certain policies turn on whether this old woman is healthy or not,” he said.

If Donald Trump replaces Ginsburg – or any other liberal on the court – it will give conservatives a 6-3 majority.

And that means Democrats will be shut out of Supreme Court majority for generations.

  1. I like that the DEMS are afraid of our President appointing another Conservative to the court. The DEMS have become nothing but liars and thieves and they will lose again in 2020 due to their lack of action on our border security. We are in the drivers seat to do more good for this country that the DEMS just can’t understand. They will not impeachment the President cause they don’t have any plan of how to move forward and give back to this country what the people need. They only see how to take what they want, just look at how Maxine Waters is enriching herself and threatens any and everyone. She is such a scum bag with a big mouth. Time well tell if they do anything in the time they have let till 2020.

    • how could it be that i do not agree with any thing the demos say plan or talk about. I think that they are digging them
      selves a very deep hole. I further do not totally understand except that they want to rule our country with they and the govt. waning to control everything.

    • OUR PRESIDENT WILL MAKE THE DECISION WHO WILL REPLACE RBG, WHEN SHE CROAKS! WE DEPLORABLES HAVE WAITED A LONG TIME, FOR “THIS TIME” TO COME! NOW, IF JUSTICE ROBERTS WILL JUST DO HIS JOB, ALL WILL BE WELL!

      • I don’t know about Roberts. I still believe he is being blackmailed by the deep state intel folks. That’s the only thing I can think of why he ruled with the libs on some previous rulings.

        • Roberts is being blackmailed by the Deep State and that is exactly why he voted for the illegal Obamacare. Justice Roberts will get his one way or another. You don’t try GOD, you will be in for a BIG SURPRISE! WHEN YOU WORK FOR THE GOV’T MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT SELL YOURSELF TO THE GOV’T (DEEP STATE) BECAUSE IT WILL EVENTUALLY COME BACK TO BITE YOU. THE DEEP STATE IS GOING DOWN AND GOD IS ON OUR SIDE, SO WE HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. REMEMBER, OBAMA IS A BIG PART OF THE DEEP STATE. ONCE WE NAIL HIM TO THE GUILLOTINE, THINGS WILL GET BETTER. OBAMA WAS A PLANT, AN ILLEGITIMATE PRESIDENT, AN ABORTION THAT LIVED!

  2. My guess is that she has a stroke(one of the symptoms of the onset of stroke, is losing balance, and unable to stay awake)in the next 3 to 6 months!!! My bet, President Trump chooses Amy Coney Barrett, from the 6th District Court of Appeals!!!

  3. I don’t know what they,(the left) have on Judge Roberts but when the deep state snaps their fingers he did their bidding. might be wise to investigate

    • He is probably like the old leaders of the GOP – – you know, those who are critical thinkers and not cult followers like Trumpers. It is much easier to get ahead through the GOP, especially if you are a minority, you just repeat the simplistic (and often wrong) propaganda, every ignorant GOPer thinks you are great, promotes you to high heaven and then when you make it to where you want like the Supreme Court, you can be the person you want to be. Drives cult Trumpers crazy, but who gives a crap by then? Especially with a lifetime appointment.

  4. I don’t understand how the court is supposed to be conservative for decades to come now. Even the more conservative justices are up in years, maybe another 10 years if they don’t get burned out. I’m very surprised Ginsburg didn’t retire and give Obama an opening but then she thought that Hillary would win hence another radical leftist. It’s funny how the democrats scream that Trump should appoint a liberal for balance. I’ve never seen a democrat nominate a conservative for balance. And you know what? THe republican senators vote yeah on all democrat nominees. And Scalia was murdered!!!!! No doubt.

    • The bottom like is that the Republicans appoint Constitution judges and the Democrats appoint Communist judges. Iy took me a long time to figure it out. I used to think Republicans appointed right-leaning judges and the Democrats appointed left-leaning jusdges and they balanced each other out with more of a moderate court. I was really wrong about this as the ugly truth has come out since Trump became POTUS. The DEmocrats can longer longer hide their evil mission for this country. I will always prefer the Republican appointees going forward.

  5. If proper & Constitutional decisions were made all the time,maybe there wouldn’t be this worry about who has the majority party in the court. Decisions are supposed to made in keeping with how our Constitution is written & with correct decisions party majority should not matter.

  6. I hate to wish these two old judges die but i dont think they will retire. I would like to see Trump appoint at least more conservative judge. That will make it very hard for the democrats to remove enough judges to get their far left agenda back into the supreme court.

    • Moderates worried about that happening, but not as much anymore. Trump’s days are numbered and I think he even sees it with 38% favorable rating after midterms. Once you break down how people voted, you see Trump has no support among women and minorities, and losing more ground each passing week with most everyone outside Trump’s cult followers. Trump, if not removed for his crimes, will lose the presidency in 2020, and both the Senate and House will be in the hands of the Democrats. RBG will retire, and the Dems will be able to appoint at least two more SCOTUS judges . . . three if the evidence on Kavanaugh leads to impreachment and removal.

      • Keep in mind, as Trump just “says what he thinks or feels,” he alienates one group or another. Most people vote against rather than “for” someone, and Trump gets more and more enemies by the day . . . even within his own party. Mark my words, there are plenty of other republicans just waiting for Trump to be vulnerable, and they will carve a second direction and take their party back from the radicals.

        • Pretty delusional aren’t you. It must be confusing to live in your made up world where everything you believe is the exact opposite of reality.
          The republicans will control both the House and the Senate after 2020 because the democrats will prove their inability to get anything done aside from investigating everything that Trump has accomplished. Ginsburg will eventually wither away and Thomas will retire while Trump is in office and the republicans control the Senate. Breyer will also check out giving Trump 3 more conservatives that will be nominated and voted in. That looks like a 7 -2 Supreme Court for about the next 30 years. How great is that??

    • Don’t feel bad about those 2 old misfit judges dying…think about all of the 61 million children that they have allowed to be MURDERED through abortion clinics…replacing them with 2 Godly judges would do so much to elicit Gods protection and care for the USA again!!!

  7. I hope this fall Ginsberg had will help her realize she may need to retire….. She probably has no outside activities, however, there are lots of temples she could use her talents…. free legal advise to the poor…. etc.

  8. Roberts looks and acts like a cu#t,A real asshole,Bush choice,right? Shame on all the Bushes,especially that big goof Jeb.why didn’t they support Trump,closet libs?

    • TRUMP STEPPED ON THEIR TOES…..{ HOW DARE HIM TO DO THAT}…..GEO.H.W. BUSH, REALLY SCREWED UP, ALIGNING HIMSELF WITH “SLICK PERVERTED WILLIE”, & THEIR “WORLD TRADE AGREEMENT”…..{ EXTREMELY BAD JUDGEMENT}…..JEB, TRIED TO BE THE 3RD BUSH IN POWER, & TRUMP “STOPPED HIM”……ROBERTS, CERTAINLY IS NO “CHAMPION” OF CONSERVATISM, & SHOULD KEEP HIS “JADED” MOUTH SHUT RE: POLITICS! GINZBERG, NEEDS “ASSISTED LIVING”…PRONTO! BRIAR, SHOULD RETIRE…..ASAP!

      • Roberts is so far up Obama’s ass it isn’t funny! Now that he is an ex president, it’s better. However, we were stuck with a tax NOT HEALTHCARE as promised, the lying POS!

      • Ginsburg or Stephen Breyer could well be the next replacements on the Supreme Court. Both are Jewish and political Leftists. Any replacement with them in the next couple of years could be good news for the Right. People might be surprised to know that Gorsuch is the only protestant chief justice. All the rest are either Catholic or Jewish.

        • Trump needs to nominate a real conservative woman. Let the democrats attack her and sit back and watch as the republican Senate confirms her. That’s something I will have a lot of fun watching.

          • JUDGE PIRRO WOULD BE AWESOME AND SHE CAN STAND HER GROUND. LOVE HER DEARLY, SHE’S NO PUSH OVER AND DON’T PLAY GAMES. I WAS HOPING FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT!

    • Then make it age restricted so she’s out Supreme Court will vote in favor of the change no one should have a life appointed job with out age limits or find a hit man.

  9. REGARDING SUPREME COURT, WHAT IS THE BETTER NUMBER, 8 OR 9?

    The blindfold Lady Justice wears symbolizes the concept that justice should be rendered “without passion or prejudice.” Considering only the facts on her scale, theoretically, Lady Justice does not bother with letting emotional impressions of the accused enter into the implicit equation.

    Most assume the minds on the U.S. Supreme Court are some of the most knowledgeable scholars of jurisprudence.

    If that assumption were correct, why are their decisions anything but unanimous?

    How can these legal scholars reach different conclusions, based upon the same set of facts?

    Assuming the blindfold on Lady Justice reflects the suppression of bias and prejudice for the purpose of achieving objectivity, how and why are too many decisions “multi-dimensional”?

    We’ve experienced the phrases, conservative Court and liberal Court, whereas our goal should be an objective Court.

    At the retail level of adjudications, in a criminal trial, the result must be unanimous, 12-0, which, normally, affects only one person.

    Does it make sense that a 5-4 decision should affect the entire nation?

    Now we come to whether 8 or 9 should be the appropriate number of Justices. If the number were 9, a 5-4 vote would control, whereas with a Court of 8, a 5-3 decision would be required, which is, at least, quantitatively, a better “score”.

    When the Court regains its full complement of 9, I would like to see Congress mandate, that to affect law, the vote must be, at least, 6 to 3, but preferably 7 to 2. As an option, I advocate that Congress change the full complement from 9 (since 1869) to 8 or any other even number of Justices, which would necessitate minimum 5-3 decisions, assuming no abstentions.

    • MJochael, I believe I understand your point. However, whether we get a 5-4 or 5-3 majority, it is still 5 unelected members deciding for the entire country. Even 7-2 or 6-3 gives us the same concept, but at a higher majority. With that I do agree. Also, your points in regard to split decisions is right on the money. If the SCOTUS is made up of the best legal minds in the country, and all are very well versed on the Constitution, we should, in theory, always have a unanimous decision. That is not possible due to politics. President Trump made a very good point that Roberts made a fool of himself over. If political bias did not enter into the equation, how did Roberts get away with violating the separation of the 3 branches by usurping Congress and actually writing law? SCOTUD can only decide the merits of a law, not write law. Per Roberts, the obozocare law was unconstitutional, as written. So he changed the words from fee or penalty to a tax. SCOTUS can not, per the constitution write law. The executive branch can not write law. Both are limited to accepting the law as written, or rejecting it, thereby sending it back to the chamber in which it originated to have necessary changes made to it. Roberts took it upon himself to re-write the law, albeit a very minor portion. But it was still a change. That is not allowed under our constitution.

      • If the Supreme Court is the final decision , how do we stop them
        when they are making laws and not following the
        CONSTITUTION ?

        • George, we get them out by knowing the Constitution and demanding our elected officials follow it at every level of government. First, folks need to understand, per the Constitution, there are NO lifetime appointments to SCOTUS. The Constitution states the members appointed to SCOTUS can serve during terms of “good behavior.” When any member of that body pulls a clearly unconstitutional stunt, such as Roberts with his obozocare decision, that member must be impeached. Or removed by POTUS. The positions that are filled by appointment by the POTUS, with confirmation by the US Senate, should be removed the same way. If POTUS can appoint and later fire an AG, why can he not do the same with a SCOTUS appointment? Now, I realize that can open up a giant sized can of worms. We do not want any POTUS to have the ability to “stack” the SCOTUS upon taking Office. But we do need to protect our Nation from activist judges. Any and every appointed federal judge should have the same restrictions as every other guvco official, appointed or elected. Removal of an appointed judge should not be based on whim or politics. But every appointed judge should fear for his/her job if they can be proven to be violating the US Constitution with their decisions or rulings. A clear violation of the Constitution would not be defined as serving during “good behavior.” To be able to have any chance at getting there, we need to elect members to congress, and every other level of guvco, who can clearly demonstrate both knowledge of and adherence to our Constitution. We will likely not see that happen any time soon. Mainly due to the sore lack of knowledge of the Constitution on the part of so many American citizens. There is no quick and/or easy fix. But the solution can be had, if we focus on education of the citizenry. Any worthwhile goal should be worthy of the labor required to attain it.

    • Michael, excellent thoughts, however you’re missing one very important point. Liberals can’t deal with facts, never have, never will.

  10. We NEED to have President Trump have another opportunity to place another TRUE Constitutionalist judge (Conservative) to the Supreme Court! Then we will have a 5 – 4 advantage on the court! You CANNOT count on the spineless weasel john Roberts as a TRUE Constitutionalist (Conservative) judge, as he showed his true colors on the twisted, convoluted, erroneous “ruling” he made on b.o. care! He “effectively” replaced kennedy as the “swing” vote on the court! He DEFINITELY CANNOT be counted on to make good, Constitutional rulings!

    • why i believe somebody paid of judges to replace 4 judges so trump can call in what he wants changed, since before he put his crew in he couldn’t get anywhere with the supreme court was always shooting him down, i’ll take anyone who says how feel to trump over any coward who says yesa master

  11. While I don’t want to wish “ill” on an 85 year old woman, I DO wish she’d realize it’s time to hang up her robe & just retire already. The Liberal majority on SCOTUS is already gone & you’ve got 2 “80 somethings” sitting on it as it is. Trump WILL, most likely, get a 3rd Conservative nominee on the bench & then it’s all over but the inevitable, insufferable, UNENDING WHINING as the Liberal Agenda is stopped dead in its tracks for at least a couple of generations (THANK GOD !!!). I think this battle’s already over. Or at least, has a definitive foregone conclusion of Conservative Rule for decades. They may as well just surrender now, let Ginsburg retire, & cut their losses………..

    • Yes, let’s put Trump on the court after 2024! Go the Donald who is right on all his decisions-so smart! And yes, I love her so much I wish God would take her to heaven immediately!

  12. Imagine how the cause of individual freedom might be advanced if the Court were to have for decades a solid majority of justices who can actually read and understand the plain language of the Constitution, and who are not blinded by their agendas!!

    • Richard, I could not agree more. Your comment sums it up very neatly. And all of the great, positive ramifications can not be effectively stated here. Just as was the case with our Constitution, it defined a very limited number of our God given, inalienable rights. All of our rights are far to numerous to catalog. So would be all of the positive effects of an actual Constitutional Judiciary, especially at the SCOTUS level.

  13. I pray that Roe v Wade Will be overturned and murder of the unborn children will be outlawed in the United States of America God bless President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence And God bless the USA.

    • Abortions have occurred for ages… they just weren’t legal in the US but in other countries if you could afford them… abortions took place for the poor in back alleys with coat hangers, etc….. I don’t condone abortions except for mother’s life, rape or incest… which puts me in conflict with some religious organizations. Abortion will always continue, however it should not be funded by TAXPAYERS. I would like my taxpayers dollars be spent on free birth control and sterilization…. I would rather pay $10/month for birth control than $300/month for 18 years for unwanted, neglected children than fall on the backs of American workers for support.

  14. Now wait I seem to recall a (Democrat President) appointed justice saying the court is not a political body. All who really think he was telling the truth I have ocean front property for sale in Arizona.

    • R T you are correct then why did the democrats not want a supposed right wing judge , one that follows the law , this is all BS, of course democrats will buy anything so they will buy your ocean front prop in AZ

  15. We all know Justice Ginsburg is a loony tunes leftist who had served 12 years with the equally whacked out half-a-commie organization, the ACLU, before being nominated by Bill Clinton, the draft dodging, White House rapist. So how is it that she was confirmed by a 96-3 vote? How does this happen in the Land of Lincoln? Inquiring minds would like to know…

  16. Ego. That was the problem, and is still the problem. ginsberg and breyer had too much ego to step away from their powerful positions. And now, they are facing something they never expected to face; criticism from the liberal loony leftists. If they really had the future of the liberal agenda as their top priority, they would have resigned under obozo. With the democrat numbers in the Senate, combined with the spineless rino republicans, obozo could have very likely put two much younger nut jobs on the bench. Their egos would not allow them to do so. And, that is also in conjunction with their belief hillary would be the one to nominate their replacements. President Trump shot that belief all to hell and back. Now, both ginsberg and breyer have to hang on for dear life and hope they can last until after, they hope, Trump loses in 2020. That could prove to be a very long two years. It is my hope they do not make it. I am not hoping some tragedy befalls either. I am simply hoping their advanced ages, and naturally associated infirmities, force them out very soon. And I am hoping, and expecting, to see President Trump prevail in 2020. As obozo said, elections do have consequences. When hillary, rightfully, lost in 2016, we saw the consequences of ginsberg and stephens inflated egos preventing them from stepping down under obozo. We saw the very good consequences of the Trump appointment to the SCOTUS. If those two leftist, nut job liberals can survive for two more years on the bench, we will see the most horrible election fraud ever attempted to be perpetrated on the American citizenry as all stops will be pulled out for the left to win the WH back in 2020. Our best hope, as a nation, is for at least ginsberg to leave the bench before then. What went on with the nomination and confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh will look like a cake walk compared to what we will see with the next President Trump nomination to SCOTUS. It will be a time for all Patriots to raise literal hell with every republican in the Senate to do the right thing. To support the next nomination by Trump with a unity and determination unlike any the republicans have ever mustered before. Meanwhile, I find myself in a very strange position, gratitude for ginsberg hanging on and NOT giving obozo the opportunity to replace her with a younger justice just as loony as her.

    • It is funny how these “deep thinkers” had a plan that is surely backfiring on them. I don’t know if their voting plan will work now that we are on to their tricks. Potus has to go after Cali. to straighten out the mess the demos made there. That state is a boil on the ass of America.

  17. In my book, Roberts is a liberal Republican. Trump needs to look for real conservatives, not the likes of rino judges.

    If Ginsburg is forced to resign due to health reasons, then the Senate Judiciary Committee better be ready to push the appointee thru the process fast and spotless. Maybe a female judge would do.

    • Hopefully(fingers crossed X X)Breyer and RBG die, retire, whatever, what have you, and President Trump will be able to replace both of those hypocritical, murdering evil lying sacks of dog shit…with a 61/2 to 21/2 or 7 to 2 majority it would be a sweet nights sleep for the majority of God fearing Americans…Pray without ceasing that God will allow this to happen, as he allowed us to elect a President who has America’s well being on his mind always…Praise be to the Almighty God…!!!

    • This woman has been a raging liberal from a very early age, and like most liberals think she has it “going on” and wants everyone to share her ideas.

    • Let’s hope the old buzzard either kicks the bucket or is incapacitated to the point of mandating removal. Roberts is liberal scum, as only the RINO Bush clan could provide. He proved it with his Obamacare treason. We conservatives cannot trust him and I have no doubt he’ll pull further left as the reality of Trump’s 2 picks hits home. We MUST have 1 more justice who respect the Constitution!
