Justice Ginsburg Just Made Sudden Announcement About Her Supreme Court Career

Published

on

The 85-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsburg made a brief announcement about the end of her career with the Supreme Court and not everyone was thrilled with what she had to say. Ginsburg suggested that she had at least another five years of service and wants to stay on the Supreme Court until she’s 90-years-old. Many want her to retire now, but that would mean Donald Trump would appoint someone to take her place, something Democrats would not like to see.

Ginsburg had a chance to retire while former President Barack Obama was in the White House, but she did not. That could have been her chance to allow Democrats to replace her with someone they prefer. Now she has to survive until President Trump is out of office in order for Democrats to have their say with a replacement.

Many are also possibly worried that she might not last that long, leaving President Trump with another option of his choice for replacing her. At this point, it might be best for her to retire and enjoy her life without having to work, but it appears as though she’s set on serving her duty until she’s at least 90.

“I’m now 85,” Ginsburg said on Sunday. “My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years.”

She has already hired law clerks for at least two more terms.

Ginsburg spoke in New York following a production of “The Originalist,” a play about the late Justice Antonin Scalia, at the 59E59 Theater.

“If I had my choice of dissenters when I was writing for the court, it would be Justice Scalia,” Ginsburg said, saying that the back and forth would help her form her arguments. “Sometimes it was like a ping-pong game.”

As a result, Ginsburg said, her landmark decision opening up the Virginia Military Institute to female cadets was her 18th draft.
Asked by “The Originalist” Director Molly Smith what keeps her “hopeful,” Ginsburg cited her late husband, Marty.

“My dear spouse would say that the true symbol of the United States is not the bald eagle — it is the pendulum,” Ginsburg said. “And when it goes very far in one direction you can count on its swinging back.”

As for retiring or term limits, Ginsburg said no chance.

“You can’t set term limits, because to do that you’d have to amend the Constitution,” Ginsburg said. “Article 3 says … we hold our offices during good behavior.”

“And most judges are very well behaved,” she added, to laughter.”

Saturday Night Live once did an episode that included a skit on Ginsburg not retiring.

Ginsburg was once seen sleeping during Obama’s State of the Union address back in 2015. She stated that she was not fully sober at the time.

‘Ridiculously Unfair To The United States’: Trump Puts His Foot Down, Gives European Allies HUGE Ultimatum

President Trump has one international policy position absolutely clear: the United States will no longer tolerate being abused by bad deals and agreements.

After a weekend with international partners and European allies, Trump took to Twitter on Monday morning to echo his policy position once more.

“Just returned from France where much was accomplished in my meetings with World Leaders,” the U.S. president said before scolding allied countries. “Never easy bringing up the fact that the U.S. must be treated fairly, which it hasn’t, on both Military and Trade.”

Trump highlighted that the U.S. pays a considerable amount to European allies only to then have to have a trade deficit with them as well, a double cost that the U.S. is shouldering.

No more, Trump said.

“We pay for LARGE portions of other countries military protection, hundreds of billions of dollars, for the great privilege of losing hundreds of billions of dollars with these same countries on trade. I told them that this situation cannot continue – It is, and always has been, ridiculously unfair to the United States. Massive amounts of money spent on protecting other countries, and we get nothing but Trade Deficits and Losses.”

Trump then offered an ultimatum to these countries: pay up for the world’s best military or finance their own.

“It is time that these very rich countries either pay the United States for its great military protection, or protect themselves…and Trade must be made FREE and FAIR!” he said.

Look:

Over the weekend, President Trump was in France where he celebrated the 100th year conclusion of World War One with French President Emanuel Macron.

Politico reports that the weekend was not exactly the friendliest of exchanges as Macron and others took subtle jabs at President Trump and his “America First” ideology. Macron specifically jabbed Trump in his commemorating speech:

He seemed most at ease late Sunday afternoon, on the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, as he visited the Suresnes American Cemetery and memorial just outside Paris, where the stage and star power were his alone.

There, standing before rows upon rows of simple white crosses with a view of the Eiffel Tower in the distance, he commemorated Americans killed in “The Great War” and paid tribute to the way the U.S. fought alongside European nations.

“Earlier this year, President Macron presented an oak sapling from Belleau Wood as a gift to our nation — an enduring reminder of our friendship sealed in battle,” Trump told the audience, referring to the French president’s state visit in April. “We fought well together. You could not fight better than we fought together.”

And:

From Macron to Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the message seemed clear: Trump is taking the U.S. in a more isolated direction, while former allies band together to reject him.

Before roughly 70 world leaders, Macron, for instance, criticized the nationalist movement that Trump has embraced and made a cornerstone of his two-year-old presidency.

“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism,” Macron said earlier Sunday at a ceremony in Paris. “Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism by saying, ‘Our interest first, who cares about the others?’”

JAW-DROPPING: Under Trump, Illegal Immigrant Arrests Up 4,000 PERCENT

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Sara Palin

When the American people elected President Trump, they sent a clear signal to Washington D.C. that it was time for a change. A change from the swamp, from fake news, from slow-moving bureaucracy, from a shrinking military, and a complete switch from the Obama administration’s handling of illegal immigration.

Illegal entry into the United States is no longer the open door that it was under the former administration as Trump is actually enforcing the immigration laws already on the books.

That means the arrest of those who sneak illegally into the country, something the Obama administration struggled to achieve.

The Daily Caller reports the Trump administration has so far made tremendous progress — a near-4000 percent boom — when it came to arresting illegal immigrants on federally controlled lands along the U.S.-Mexico border. Check it out:

Federal agents apprehended nearly 4,000 percent more illegal immigrants on federally controlled lands along the U.S.-Mexico border in the last six months compared to the same time during 2016, according to the Interior Department.

Interior law enforcement officials apprehended and turned over 4,010 individuals to U.S. Border Patrol agents from May to October, the department revealed Friday in a press release. That’s approximately 4,000 percent higher than the 126 illegal aliens turned over to border agents from May to October 2016.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke revealed the colossal figure in a statement where he lauded his department’s immigration efforts. He said:

“First off, I applaud all our law enforcement for their tireless work keeping the American people safe and securing the border. President Trump made a promise to the American people that his administration will do everything we can to secure the southern border and protect our people, and that is exactly what Interior’s law enforcement professionals are doing. The fact that we were able to increase arrests by almost 4,000 percent is undeniable proof that there’s a big problem. Under the previous administration, Interior’s borderlands were basically an open door for illegal activity; and, what few law enforcement officers were down there were left unprotected and without the resources and backup needed to keep communities and themselves safe.”

“The first six months of the border surge proved that there is a huge problem with illegal crossings on Interior lands and that a prolonged and more robust operation is needed until the wall is completed. We will increase our presence on the border in targeted regions and provide additional assistance to teams deploying in response to the oncoming caravan.”

Here’s more, per the Department of the Interior:

In May of 2018, Secretary Zinke directed a Border Support Surge initiative, which coordinated law enforcement officers from the Department of the Interior and the U.S. Border Patrol to execute high level operations to patrol and protect the border with Mexico. The team saw immediate results.

During the first six months of the border surge, Interior law enforcement officers tallied:

  • 4,010 apprehensions have been made and turned over to the custody of the U.S. Border Patrol
  • 224 turn-backs (Were coming into the US, but turned around when they saw law enforcement)
  • 469 apprehended on non-federal lands
  • 2,356 pounds of drugs seized
  • Several vehicles, firearms, and other items confiscated
  • The 4,000 percent increase compares the first six months of the surge (2018) to the same six months of the last year of the Obama Administration (2016), and assesses the same geographic areas.

From May 2016 until October 2016, Interior law enforcement apprehended and turned over 126 illegal aliens to the U.S. Border Patrol. During the same time period in 2018, Interior apprehended and turned over 4,010 illegal aliens to the U.S. Border Patrol.
