Ginsburg’s Latest Statement About How Much Time Left on SCOTUS is Horrible

Published

on

SCOTUS Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spoke over the weekend and revealed how much time she thinks she has left before exiting the bench stage right, and honestly, if you’re a conservative, this is going to elicit quite a few boos from the crowd.

According to Ginsburg, who is 85-years-old, believes she can hang on another five years before stepping down. Feel free to bawl your eyes out right not if you like. No one will hold it against you. Go ahead. Let it all out.

“I’m now 85. My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years,” Ginsburg said following a production of “The Originalist,” a play about the late Justice Antonin Scalia, at a theater in New York.

Ginsburg spoke about her late colleague and said Scalia was her favorite dissenter when she was writing for the court because it would help her form her arguments.

“If I had my choice of dissenters when I was writing for the court, it would be Justice Scalia,” Ginsburg said. “Sometimes it was like a ping-pong game.”

Ginsburg is the oldest justice on the court and will be the only justice in her eighties when her colleague Justice Anthony Kennedy retires on July 31. CNN reports Ginsburg has hired law clerks for the next two terms, a signal that she plans to stay on the court until after the 2020 election so there could be a possibility of Democratic president picking her replacement.

“The Originalist” Director Molly Smith asked Ginsburg what keeps her “hopeful.” She answered that her husband Marty did.

Ginsburg was later asked about term limits for judges on the Supreme Court, to which she replied the chances of that ever happening are pretty much nil.

It might be highly unlikely that we’ll see term limits set for judges, but that doesn’t mean it won’t ever happen. In fact, it would be wonderful for our country if we did indeed amend the Constitution to include this little provision, along with term limits for members of Congress too.

Let’s hope that Trump is still in office when Ginsburg does step down and as a result, we can install yet another conservative judge and keep things stacked in favor of liberty.

Americans, Still Trapped in Afghanistan, Plead with Biden Administration

The trouble in Kabul continues…

Published

Just because the news cycle is short and forgetful doesn’t mean that conditions are improving in stories that have fallen to the wayside.  This is just the new human attention span, and the marketing industry’s ability to hone in on the speed needed to stay ahead of your own thoughts.

And so, despite the unwillingness of the mainstream media to speak on the subject, there are still American citizens trapped under Taliban rule in Afghanistan, begging to be brought home.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) on Thursday released a letter to President Joe Biden penned by an American citizen from San Diego, California, who is still trapped in Afghanistan alongside his wife.

“I am pleading with you again as a fellow proud American and as a husband to help my wife and I get home from Afghanistan,” the American citizen wrote in the October 15 letter to President Biden, weeks after the Biden administration’s botched withdrawal from the Taliban-controlled country.

Their tale is harrowing.

The American explained that he and his wife risked their lives to get through Taliban checkpoints, only to discover that the October 4 flight was canceled “because passengers did not have visas for UAE, where the flight was to land.” Another flight left on October 11, but the American said they never received a call to go to the airport.

“The third scheduled for 13 October was apparently cancelled. We learned details of the latter flights from our Congressman, the Hon. Darrell Issa, who flew to Doha to meet us, and not from the DOS,” he continued, explaining these were not their only attempts made since August.

President Biden promised that US forces would remain in-country until each and every American can get home safely, but then abided by a Taliban deadline to evacuate, abandoning a great many Americans and our allied partners.

Authorities Confirm Identity of Remains Found in Search for Brian Laundrie

But are there more questions than answers still?

Published

on

Life is no fairy tale, that is for sure, and it certainly isn’t fair.

That seems to be the prevailing mood among those seeking justice for Gabby Petito after authorities in Florida made a stunning announcement on Thursday. 

The FBI confirmed Thursday that it had found the remains of Brian Laundrie, the 23-year-old fiancé of Gabby Petito and the only person of interest in her death.

In a statement, the FBI’s Denver field office, which has been leading the investigation, said a comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found in Carlton Reserve and the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in Sarasota County, Fla., on Wednesday were those of Laundrie.

Oddly, Brian’s parents were involved in the discovery of the items belonging to their son.

Steven Bertolino, an attorney for Laundrie’s parents, said police came to their North Port, Fla., home late Thursday afternoon to notify them.

On Wednesday, partial human remains, as well as a backpack and notebook belonging to Laundrie, were found along a trail in the Myakkahatchee park, which is adjacent to the 24,565-acre Carlton Reserve, where Laundrie’s parents told police they believed he was headed when they reported him missing last month.

Bertolino said on Wednesday that Laundrie’s parents had gone to the park to search for their son that morning and met with North Port police and the FBI.

“Chris and Roberta Laundrie went to the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park this morning to search for Brian,” Bertolino said in a statement. “After a brief search of a trail that Brian frequented, some articles belonging to Brian were found.”

The news will come as a disappointment to those who hoped Laundrie would be captured and questioned regarding the death of his fiancée, but the mention of a “notebook” found near the body does offer some hope that some explanation could be forthcoming.
