Justice Kennedy Steps Down

Posted by Tina

Justice Anthony Kennedy has announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, effective at the end of July. His decision leaves an open seat on the court which President Trump will fill. Trump praised Kennedy, who has served on the court for thirty years, as a man of “tremendous vision.”

We can expect very nasty resistance from the left during confirmation hearings. But some of the barriers to confirmation have been removed in the /senate:

Few obstacles seem to stand in the way of confirming Kennedy’s replacement before the court reconvenes in October. Republicans changed the rules during Gorsuch’s confirmation to wipe out the main delaying tactic for Supreme Court nominees, the filibuster, and the need for 60 votes to defeat it.

President Trump has a list of 25 or so judges that he considers strong constitutionalists from which he will draw for a replacement to Kennedy.

This will make our summer even more explosive.(The crazies will be hysterical)

Let the games begin.

Related: The Supreme Court ruled today (5-4) that government employees cannot be forced to pay union dues:

the court ruled that the laws requiring fair share fees violate the First Amendment by compelling workers to support unions they may disagree with.

“States and public-sector unions may no longer extract agency fees from nonconsenting employees,” Justice Samuel Alito said in his majority opinion in the latest case in which Gorsuch, an appointee of President Donald Trump, provided a key fifth vote for a conservative outcome.

Good news. These unions are, in some respects, nothing more than money laundering organizations for the Democrat Party.

    The screams of anguish from the DNC could be heard for miles when they heard of Kennedy’s plans to retire. I expect there will be higher sales of toupees and wigs soon as a result of their hair-tearing . . . . . . . .

    Must read article by Daniel Greenfield at Frontpage Magazine, “How Long Do Dems Think They Can Block a Supreme Court Justice?”

    Greenfield visits history of Dem opposition to the Bush appointment of Judge Priscilla Owen, a moderate, to suggest what where in for…also Judge William Pryor, Judge Pickering, Wallace, and Southwick.

    There is hypocrisy behind Schummer’s lies and threats of resistance. Democrats haven’t addressed appointments with the integrity of their office since they viciously smeared Robert Bork. Democrats are the reason our nation is in a constant state of revolution…they get more radical as each year passes. They need to be replaced with patriotic Americans who love our nation and want to see it preserved.
