Justice Kennedy will no longer be the deciding vote on the Supreme Court. The best he can do is change a 5-2 majority to a 4-3 majority and we have two liberal justices to thank for that. Both Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor have given the new president a gift that will keep on giving, unless John Roberts steps in and makes a really bad decision…again.
I have researched it and found that there is no prohibition on Supreme Court members from exercising their first Amendment Rights even when it comes to politics. They cannot be removed from the court as long as they don’t say something that is prohibited by law, such as a death threat or a terroristic threat.
But, and this is a big but, they are obligated to recuse themselves in any case in which they have shown bias. That is why justices avoid talking about any subject which has not already been adjudicated by SCOTUS.
Both Sotomayor and Ginsburg have made highly prejudicial statements about Donald Trump. The genie is now out of the bottle. It can’t be put back. Can Ginsberg say, “Yes, I think Trump is a racist, a baboon and a scumbag, but I can be fair to him.” Would you have faith in that? I wouldn’t.
“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” she said. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.” She joked — it seemed like a joke, anyway — that she might move to New Zealand if Trump were to win.
Naturally, like the rest of those who promised to leave if Trump wins, she’s still here…
