Justice Kennedy Squelches Retirement Rumors?

by

supreme-court-justice-ruth-bader-ginsburgSupreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg declined to announce her retirement, once again, on the last day of the session on Monday. Also, Justice Anthony Kennedy declined to his announce his retirement, though he could do so over the summer.

The 84-year-old Ginsburg — the “Notorious R.B.G.,” to her fans — has been on the Court since 1993, when she was appointed by President Bill Clinton. Since then, she has been a reliable liberal vote for 24 years, though observers have long wondered if she has the stamina to continue. Last year, Ginsburg blasted then-candidate Donald Trump as a “faker,” and echoed Democratic Party talking points on Trump’s tax returns — an astonishing breach of custom and decorum. She later apologized.

The 80-year-old Kennedy is rumored to be considering retirement after nearly three decades on the Court, since being appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1988. Kennedy has some conservative views but has become the “swing vote” on the Court between the current four liberal and four conservative justices, especially on cases dealing with social issues. Such is Kennedy’s power over major national issues that he is jokingly referred to as the one person who really rules the country — or as “President Kennedy.”

In April, Senate Judiciary Committee chair Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) hinted that a justice might retire over the summer, though he did not say whom. Speculation immediately surrounded Kennedy, since Republican appointees might be expected to allow a Republican president to name their replacements.

  • Ruth

    If she stays, she should have to recuse herself from anything having to do with President Trump.

  • Walter Flatt

    IF SHE STAYS ON, THEN SHE SHOULD LEAVE THE BOOZE ALONE.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 AND THIS LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. IT BANS ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US, THAT INCLUDE A MUSLIMS.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

    She should be honest with the people of this country and herself about her late life condition on falling asleep during an assembly or meeting. This is so bad that she is doing no one any good under those conditions. No one is getting a fair shake as long as she is paying no attention to cases by sleeping. Not only that, by making comments about the president and hoping he doesn’t get into office along with her quip about moving to New Zealand is quite uncalled for and should be enough for her to step down from her sleeping perch and go home. I don’t know if New Zealand would even allow her to their country anyway!

    • keedon

      Dennis she doesn’t need to be awake. She votes far left no matter.

  • Tiger

    The “Shriveled Banshee” needs to get out of any case that has to do with anything Trump does, her comments shows intense hatred for our POTUS. Too bad these two are not leaving suppose the Left gave them some good payoffs to hang around.

  • theseer

    The fact she sleeps through proceedings…
    she should be forced to leave…

  • kathleen_smith121

    They BOTH need to go. She can’t even remember who is POTUS. Bad as Pelosi.
    It must be a really cushy job if these people still want to do it at those late ages.

  • Janthony132

    A Justice that knows and demonstrates she is bias, should retire if she cares anything about justice.

  • Askjrsk

    Perfect. We continue to have old age judges suffering from dementia on the Supreme Court. Insanity. I’ve seen healthier people than Ruth Ginsburg in assisted living homes. Their is obnoxiously outrageous . Egos that are so enormous on these old people who think they are so important that the world cannot go around with out them. A little Humility is in order, to allow some others well qualified and sharper more alert to serve.

  • How old is Ginsberg?I thought she celebrated her 150th year on the supreme court last year,it’s time to move on.They need term limits so they can’t stay on forever.Maybe she can hook up with Pelosi and they can leave our country together.

    • Askjrsk

      Spot on.

    • keedon

      She is a vampire and doesn’t age.

  • chocopot

    This miserable old commie needs to leave.

    • Askjrsk

      Hater Ginsburg is, bet she’s had a lot of abortions. She’s not balanced.

  • CCblogging

    Trump will outlast them both and will appoint these two SCOTUS seats and maybe more. President Donald Trump will shape the legal path of America by returning the SCOTUS to our US Constitution. Trump’s legacy will be unequaled in American history. Trump is the heavy and time will reveal this. President Trump will have 8 years in office if he wants it and by 2024, much good will have been done.

  • champion2211

    In stead of party this or party that they all should go by what the constitution reads. Being on the SC they shouldn’t belong to any party and if the Constitution states one thing they all need to follow what is there. Nothing else.

    • Ramon1710 .

      Anyone who reads the Constitution – and concludes that it guarantees the “right” to marry whatever you want – is either senile, on drugs, twisted, or incredibly stupid. Possibly all of the above, Ruthie?

    • Askjrsk

      Haters don’t. Ginsburg is a hater. All those abortions.

  • Ramon1710 .

    “Ginsburg blasted then-candidate Donald Trump as a ‘faker’”.

    This pathetic old witch took an oath to defend the Constitution, and twists the Constitution to match her twisted Humanist/communist goals. And she calls President Trump a faker? She’s the fake.

    • Askjrsk

      Haters simply hate. Ginsburg is a hater.

      • Retired

        Talk about putting a bag over the head , just as bad as the Clintons .

        • Askjrsk

          Put on some lipstick, and old ugly mean Ruthie actually be purdier with a paper bag over that ugly puss.

          • Retired

            You would need a gunny sack.

          • Askjrsk

            From the grainery. Half full.

          • Retired

            You think the old goat could eat that much ????

          • Askjrsk

            She has more chins than a Chinese dynasty .

          • Retired

            You are improving on you comments , keep up the good work . All drooppers like bowling pin Anny .

  • RB

    Ginsburg has made it obvious that she hates Trump so much that she will probably try to hang on until 2020 and the next election in the hopes that Trump won’t be reelected.
    And if Trump is reelected, will she be able to hang on till 2024?
    With her recent hateful comments about Trump, it’s hard to believe that any judgment rendered by her will be truly impartial and not made in order to stop Trump and conservative agendas.

    • champion2211

      Being she feels hate rather than what the constitution states and she is totally against anything that the President come up with she will vote NO, she needs to be removed as she is letting her hate go against America. That isn’t wanted for any person to operate on hate. She or anybody else that operates on hate needs to be replaced.

    • Askjrsk

      Ginsburg is a hater. She’s a nasty old woman. Unlike most grandmothers. How many abortions has she had and how many baby parts has she sold? Hater. She’s a hater.

      • gvette

        In the back of my mind, I think there’s always a chance, she’ll go to sleep, and not wake up, or maybe get hit by a Grayhound

    • msueh

      mebbe her hate will cause a massive aneurism…

  • Beverly Murphy

    If you cannot judge yourself as being too long at the fair, someone should be able to do it for you. Time takes its toll and working with missing links (happens to everyone , even SC judges) any common sense left should dictate to do the correct move. Home, nice walks with doggie, yoga, teatime when appropriate and let those with full faciulties do a better job.
    No ageism here, 80 looms.

    • Askjrsk

      Spot on

  • Jose

    This hag will not retire as she wants to continue to be a PITA for President Trump. I bet that if President Trump voted for a medal for her, she would vote against it just for spite. She needs to just hang her broom and retire.

    • Retired

      Nothing new just more fake news .

  • MARLENE HESSLER

    Will the old bat hang on til age 92. She might just be nasty enough to do it.

    She fails the one big test that any judge should be required to pass. That is supporting the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    The wingnut actually believes there are others that are better than ours.
    When a judge stops believing in ours, it’s time to hang up the robes. Guess she doesn’t have a life outside of trying to rewrite laws from the bench.
