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.

Suspected Terrorist Murders Three In Attack At French Church, Mayor Wants To Oust ‘Islamo-Fascism’

Published

Three individuals were murdered in cold blood in Nice, France on Thursday in what looks to be the third terrorist attack on French soil in the past month. A man armed with a knife walked into Notre Dame Basilica in Nice and killed two people, fatally wounding a third individual who was able to get outside before dying. French police are treating the incident as a terrorist attack. “Everything leads us to believe it was a terrorist attack within the Notre Dame basilica,” Mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi posted on social media. Here’s more on this from The Daily Wire: Several French media outlets reported that at least one of the victims of the attack was beheaded, mirroring an attack earlier this month in which a French schoolteacher was beheaded by a suspected Islamic radical. Police captured the attacker soon after the incident, shooting him in the shoulder and transporting him to a local hospital, according to The Guardian. Estrosi said that while the man was being taken into custody, he repeatedly yelled “Allahu Akbar.” “We have two people killed inside the church … and a third person who was in a bar facing the church where she had taken refuge,” Estrosi told the media. “Enough is enough … we have to remove this Islamo-fascism from our territory.” On Oct. 16, an 18-year-old man beheaded French history teacher Samuel Paty outside of the secondary school where he taught. Paty was killed after showing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammed to his class for a lesson on free expression. “Before it was a school professor, this time the Islamo-fascist barbarism chose to attack inside a church. Again, it is very symbolic,” the mayor said. Toward the end of the month of September, a suspected terrorist with a butcher’s knife seriously wounded two…

Luxury Buildings Hire Armed Guards In Preparation For Election Day Madness

Published

on

The ultra-rich in the city of New York have been preparing for the possibility of civil unrest on Election Day next, hiring armed guards to watch over luxury buildings in Manhattan. Managers over at the Time Warner Center, located on Columbus Circle — where penthouse apartments are only a measly $62.5 million — are deploying off-duty police officers armed with “submachine guns” to keep an eye on things. Other homes and buildings for the wealthy are taking other measures to increase security. “Everybody is worried about security,” an insider said to reporters. “Every top building is adding security. It’s out of control. We hope it won’t be needed, but we will be ready.” The insider said the building is currently working with the NYPD and Homeland Security. “There will be officers with submachine guns,” the source stated. “We’ve always had immense security, but there will be more. We’ll have extra patrols. The entire building can be shut down with one button.” via Fox News: Many buildings are hiring off duty cops instead of private security companies because they fear a repeat of Denver, where a private guard shot and killed a protester, said one real estate insider. “The NYPD is advising buildings to get the extra security,” the source said. “They’ve never done this before.” Other top buildings, such as 220 Central Park South, which is home to hedge funder Ken Griffin’s $238 million condo, say they are already well guarded but will take extra precautions, like keeping entrances locked at night, and only open to residents. How sad is it that folks are terrified about their physical safety and for the property they own simply because of a national election, which is one of the many privileges of living in a republic? We, unlike many nations, get to choose…
