Ginny Ginsburg see the light


Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg believes "everything" will be up for grabs if Donald Trump is elected president and has the opportunity to appoint several justices to the high Court.

"I don't want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs," Ginsburg said of the presumptive Republican nominee succeeding in his bid for the White House in an interview published Friday by The Associated Press.

The 83-year-old justice, who belongs to the court's liberal wing, said it's "likely that the next president, whoever she will be, will have a few appointments to make." Ginsburg is the oldest of the eight justices currently on the bench, while two of her colleagues – Anthony Kennedy and Stephen Breyer – are closing in on 80. [Full]
Automaton Justice Ginsburg, the erstwhile ACLU crusader who was appointed by Bill (or maybe Hillary) after her husband made a few million dollar contribution to some Clinton "project."  Replacing dead justices will not be fix enough.  The entire liberal court culture must be righted before that can happen.

PS. Trump released a list in May of 11 conservative judges that he would likely nominate to the Supreme Court if elected president. The list was praised by conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation, but drew outrage from Hillary Clinton's campaign.

She's had a good run. Promoted herself from law review to law maker, then all the way to ruling Mullah of the peasants. Maybe Trump will preserve this delicate balance by replacing her with Susan Collins. We are once Supreme Court Justice from totalitarianism. -Anymouse

...if Donald Trump is elected president ... but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs,"
Translation: "That might mean the unwinding of all the laws we made from the bench, starting with Uhbamacare."
That coming from Buzzy means it would be a good thing.

The [Trump justice]list ...drew outrage from Hillary Clinton's campaign.
That coming from them means it would be a good thing.
Very encouraging. The closer to the target, the heavier the flak.
Keep strafing them, Donald.
