The (Judicially) Dead Kennedys?

Rumors are again swirling Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy may soon retire. The decision would give President Trump another chance to choose a conservative SCOTUS nomination.

For the second year in a row, rumors that Justice Anthony M. Kennedy may retire from the Supreme Court are sweeping Washington. He is 81, and he is doubtless weighing many factors in deciding whether to stay. Among them, experts in judicial behavior said, are the tug of party loyalty, the preservation of his judicial legacy and how close his retirement would be to a presidential election.

Justice Kennedy has long held the decisive vote in many of the Supreme Court’s most contested and consequential cases, and his retirement would give President Trump the opportunity to move the court sharply to the right. If Justice Kennedy steps down, the confirmation fight over his successor will be titanic.

Dear #NeverTrumpers, THIS is exactly why conservatives voted for Donald Trump. If we listened to you and your ilk, Hillary Clinton would be preparing to nominate another leftist moonbat in the mold of Ginsburg or Kagan, and conservative America would be mourning the death of this country.

  1. The court desperately needs another Gorsuch. I wish Ginsburg would retire but I honestly think she enjoys making conservatives crazy with her votes and verbiage.

  2. Not only is this the exact reason people voted for Donald Trump, it’s also the exact reason that the deep state, the media, the leftist commie Demoncrats, all the social justice warriors, and a host of other nutballs are trying to overthrow the government. I’m with RONN150 on his opinion of Ginsburg. She belongs to the aforementioned group that hate Trump almost more than life itself, so she won’t be leaving any time soon unless the government actually gets overthrown, in which case none of this would matter anyway. I say bring it on.

  3. Ronni – She has legitimately lost her mind. Even worse than I did.

    RG – One more justice – or two – would be epic. I sincerely doubt Trump will choose any squishes, like other presidents we could name.

    TXNick – Agreed.

    Oh, just a note; I’ll be scarce the rest of the day. I got injured at active shooter training, and I’m dedicating the rest of the night to lying down and taking ibuprofen. I’ll post the story tomorrow.

  4. I think that it’s high time that Kennedy finally retires and takes a nice extended vacation somewhere. Maybe a holiday in Cambodia…………………
