Liberals Blindsided By Supreme Court’s Future With News Of Ginsburg’s Health

Published

on

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is now 85-years-old and incredibly frail. She just had another incident where she fell at work and broke three ribs on Nov. 7th. This is causing real panic on the left as President Trump has already put two men on the Supreme Court and if Ginsburg steps down, he’ll get a shot at a third justice. That would cement the court in conservatism for a generation.

After the sordid confirmation hearings where the left tried to politically lynch Justice Brett Kavanaugh, another confirmation process would probably be even worse. Both Ginsburg and 80-year-old Justice Stephen Breyer could have stepped down during Obama’s tenure and ensured a more liberal court. Neither did so because they did not think Hillary Clinton could lose… but she did. The Hill has more on this Supreme Court battle:

Some offered to donate their ribs, others recommended cloaking her in bubble wrap.

The reactions following news that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had fractured three ribs in a fall at her office on Nov. 7 may have been made in jest, but some no doubt were rooted in real worry.

At 85, Ginsburg is the oldest member of the Supreme Court and this month’s health scare left many wondering if she’ll really serve for five more years as promised.

But she’s not the only one in recovery mode.

Washington is slowly recuperating from the bitter battle over Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Another vacancy on the bench would surely lead to an explosive fight with liberals trying in vain to prevent President Trump from turning the court into a conservative stronghold with a third nominee.

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.

Ginsburg initially went home after she fell in her office, but after feeling discomfort during the night she called Supreme Court police to take her to the hospital.

Her injury caused her to miss a day of court, but not one when the justices heard oral arguments.

Supporters say Ginsburg isn’t just the court’s leading liberal, she’s also incredibly resilient.

The justice’s personal trainer, Bryant Johnson, told The Hill on Monday that Ginsburg would be resuming her notoriously challenging workouts this week. Johnson said he would adjust Ginsburg’s routine, which includes pushups and planks, to help with her recovery.

“I always use the acronym TAN – tough as nails,” he said when asked to describe her. “As a matter of fact, I really have to kind of make her rest a little.”

After all, ribs heal — a process Ginsburg knows all too well.

She cracked two ribs in 2012 but didn’t miss a day in court, according to The Washington Post. Ginsburg has also survived two bouts of cancer.

“I think she has shown she is close to immortal,” said Caroline Fredrickson, president of the American Constitution Society. “She has gone through a lot and she always comes back fighting.”

Pete Davidson and Chris Redd rapped a tribute to Ginsburg on “Saturday Night Live” earlier this month to highlight her resolve.

“Survived a depression and Twitter attacks from Trump, broken ribs can’t stop her she eats that s— for lunch,” they sang as Kate McKinnon, dressed as Ginsburg, chowed down on barbecue ribs.

During his campaign in 2016, Trump called on Ginsburg to resign in a tweet, saying her mind is shot after she said it would be time to move to New Zealand if he were elected.

At the Medal of Freedom ceremony at the White House on Nov. 16, Trump acknowledged Ginsburg’s presence and said he was glad to see her feeling great.

Experts credit Ginsburg’s professional success to her resilience and drive.

“She graduated at the top of her class, from Columbia Law School in 1959, and didn’t get a single job offer,” said Lauren Moxley, creator of The Ginsburg Tapes, a forthcoming podcast focused on Ginsburg’s six Supreme Court arguments.

After clerking and studying civil procedure, Moxley said, Ginsburg got a job teaching at Rutgers Law School – one of 14 tenure-track teaching positions available for women in law schools at the time. She went on to join the American Civil Liberties Union and co-found its Women’s Rights Project. Former President Clinton appointed her to the Supreme Court in 1993.

Fortitude or not, some legal scholars say there should be term limits or an age cap for Supreme Court justices.

In a 2006 law review article for Northwestern University School of Law, Steven Calabresi, chairman of the Federalist Society – the conservative legal group that has helped Trump select judicial nominees – proposed a system of staggered, 18-year term limits for Supreme Court justices.

“Mental decrepitude, a rare problem in the past, now strikes from a third to a half of justices before they are willing to retire,” said the article he co-wrote with James Lindgren, a fellow law professor at Northwestern.

They said it would take a constitutional amendment to impose term limits.

Calabresi did not respond to a request for comment on whether he still supports that proposal.

Other conservative court watchers have been reluctant to set parameters on when justices should step down.

“Generally, I’m not supportive of term limits for Supreme Court justices,” said Elizabeth Slattery, a legal fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation. “It depends on the health and well-being of each individual justice.”

For now, supporters say Ginsburg isn’t going anywhere.

“She’s too tough to have her health stop her during the age of Trump,” Fredrickson said. “There’s too much is at stake for our Constitution.”

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
