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

Published

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.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
