Ginsburg Vows To Stay In Office Five More Years

She can barely stay awake now but won’t leave.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg does not have plans to step down from the nation’s highest court anytime soon.

During an event in New York City on Sunday, Ginsburg said she has “at least five more years” to serve on the Supreme Court, according to CNN. The justice spoke with director Molly Smith following a performance of “The Originalist,” an Off-Broadway show about her former colleague, Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016.

“I’m now 85,” Ginsburg said, per CNN. “My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years.”

Focus on Ginsburg’s plans came into sharp view last month when Justice Anthony Kennedy, often considered a swing vote on the increasingly conservative bench, announced his retirement. His departure after 30 years of service gave President Donald Trump the opportunity to nominate Brett Kavanaugh, a jurist who could further cement the court’s right-wing leanings and shape the bench for decades. According to Axios, Trump has privately predicted Ginsburg would be one of four judges he plans to replace during his first term in office.

    Maybe, with a little luck, Darwin a brain aneurysm will make the “limit” call.

    The fossilized old hag is betting on Trump serving only one term. With the
    economy experiencing explosive growth and some of the best unemployment
    numbers in history, that is a sucker bet. Add the Walk Away movement into
    the mix and it could be a perfect storm for Trump in 2020. Whether or not
    someone posts a video on Youtube, a huge number of lifelong liberals and
    Democrats will bail in November and 2020. Too many people are being
    repulsed by the unhinged rants of Democrat politicians and the political
    violence sponsored by their party.

    As for Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg, she is prominently featured on a number of
    Dead pool sites. She will either be forced to resign due to ill health or carried
    out of the court in a coroners wagon before President Trump leaves office.

    Someone should do a “Justice Scalia” on the old buzzard.

    My mother didn’t plan on falling, and breaking her hip. That didn’t change what happened.

    Ruth Bader-Meinhoff probably won’t even last five years. At least we are well aware that she hates Trump with a passion. The old bat needs to join John McStain and just go away. Maybe LJ is onto something and we should all start our own Deadpool. I’d put those two and HilLIARy on the list for sure.

    Redneck put me down for 2019 for Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg, 2020 for Felonia
    von Pantsuit and early 2019 for the Songbird John McStain.

    How does the saying go? “We plan…Life Laughs”

    Her pride in stepping down while obama was president kept her from doing so. She, like so many other liberal idjits, was so sure hiLIARy was going to win, she held out so that the first woman president could get a supreme court pick under her belt. Now, she has to cling to life (and what is left of her feeble brain) in order to try and survive past a Trump presidency…and maybe even two.

    I do think it will be damned hard for her to remain on the bench for two Trump terms, a Pence term or two, followed up by two terms for Ivanka, as the first female president. Of course, little else would please me as much as watching the look on the faces of Ginzy and even hill-0-beans, than to see Ivanka be the first woman president. I mean…after all…don’t you wanna see a woman president?…to quote hiLIARy.

    Anyway, the old bat can barely keep herself awake and upright for the few hours a week she is required to earn her ridiculous salary. It is high time she move on to that supreme court bench in hell. I do have to wonder, will she have problems staying awake with good old satan sticking a pitchfork in her bony old ass every time she dozes off? The image just makes me smile.

    Dekare, good post but I still cling to the belief Conservatives, Republicans,
    centrist (moderate) Democrats and independents vastly outnumber the hard left
    Democrats. I do not know about Ivanka Trump, but I have heard that she is center-
    left politically. Benazir Bhutto got elected in a Muslim country. Maggie Thatcher,
    Golda Mier and Indira Chandi were all center-right to conservative.

    American history (at least in my lifetime) tells me that if a presidential candidate
    articulates a clear and concise conservative agenda, he will in a landslide; DDE
    (two terms,) Nixon (two terms,) Ronald Reagan (two terms,) and two more
    electoral landslides for Reagan as governor my state. Donald Trump won by
    27.5 percent (which is considered a landslide.) His election was due to a
    voter revolt by an electorate sick to death of Ubangi.

    A woman can win the presidency but only if she is like Ann Coulter, Laura
    Ingraham. or a Jean Kirkpatrick. It will be hard for a leftist female candidate
    to win with a platform that consists solely of “Vote for me I have a Vagina!”
