Justice Ginsburg’s desire that the president consider a woman, not just any woman mind you, only one with her ideological perspective, further demonstrates the Left’s obsession with preserving the turf they absconded with through their manipulation of the judiciary. Her remark that “some women who might be appointed who would not advance human rights or women’s rights” somehow escaped the notice of the leftist goon squads assigned to ferret out suspected ideologues among SCOTUS nominees, and demonstrates how bereft of principle these self-appointed media watchdogs really are. Why can’t they just be honest and say that they don’t mind having an ideologue on the Court as long it is one in lock-step agreement with them?
This lunacy will continue until our elected representatives demonstrate they understand the proper role of the judiciary and take steps to appoint judges who respect the Constitution as written. Mr. Babbin cited Joe Biden’s “job interview” statement as an example of one Senator who doesn’t; however, no one can top House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s moronic press remarks in response to the recent Kelo Supreme Court ruling on governmental property seizures: “It is a decision of the Supreme Court. If Congress wants to change it, it will require legislation of a level of a constitutional amendment. So this is almost as if God has spoken. It’s an elementary discussion now. They have made the decision.” She should have quit while she had an ounce of credibility left, but she trudged on: “Again, without focusing on the actual decision, just to say that when you withhold funds from enforcing a decision of the Supreme Court you are, in fact, nullifying a decision of the Supreme Court. This is in violation of the respect for separation of church — powers in our Constitution, church and state as well. Sometimes the Republicans have a problem with that as well. But forgive my digression.”p>So, Nancy Pelosi thinks that a Supreme Court decision is almost the same as a decree from God Himself? This woman has no grasp at all on the way our republic is supposed to work. She desperately needs an elementary class in Civics — oh, sorry, I forgot we don’t teach that anymore in our indoctrination centers, I mean public schools. The fact that a person as ignorant as she appears to be holds such a powerful position of leadership in the Democratic Party makes my skin crawl. I wonder how many more politicians there are out there who think the same way. No wonder the judiciary has been allowed to run roughshod over our Constitution and trample our personal liberties. br> — Rick Arand /p>
I remember hearing that phrase “I will take enlightenment wherever I can find it” on the news several days ago. I am glad that you highlighted it.
I have never heard a more frightening statement about or from the Court. Justices are sworn to take enlightenment from the Constitution. In fact, it is assumed that when they are confirmed, they already have taken enlightenment from the Constitution.
I take your point on recusal, but I would think that statement, freely and publicly made, would be grounds for removal from the Court. This is the same type of thinking — social engineering — that led the Germans astray in the 1930s. In their case, they were going to maintain the purity of the race. Why was that idea — eugenics was held in high regard in many fashionable circles — not applied in American courts? The Germans, after all, had claim to being the most intellectually advanced society in the world.p>It was not applied because the Constitution forbade it. It is the bulwark of free people and was intentionally designed to be very difficult, but not impossible, to change. If Justice Ginsburg has found that she does not believe in the Constitution, her duty is to resign, not to lecture and certainly not to judge. br> — Greg Richards /p> p> Yeah, Ginsburg will recuse herself, all right. And right after that, the water will turn to wine, and Kerry will release ALL his records.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
