One of the looming nightmares of liberal crybabies everywhere was the fact that Donald Trump would be appointing a judge to the Supreme Court. Now, it looks like he might get two.
Judge Neil Gorsuch was appointed by President Trump to fill a vacant seat that, by all means, former President Barack Obama was unable to fill during his lame duck term. The opposition to Obama’s appointment opportunities was decisive and weighted with the coming election’s possible results. In all honesty, there’s a good chance that Obama, like many other democratic figures, believed that Hillary Clinton was well on her way to coasting into the Oval Office, negating any urgency on the left’s part.
Now, however, we know that to be a terrible tactical error by the disastrous former President.
Rumors are now circulating about the possible retirement of another Supreme Court Justice, possibly giving President Trump the unique honor of filling two such vacancies in one term.
“The Supreme Court enters its final week of work before a long summer hiatus with action expected on the Trump administration’s travel ban and a decision due in a separation of church and state case that arises from a Missouri church playground.
“The biggest news of all, though, would be if Justice Anthony Kennedy were to use the court’s last public session on Monday to announce his retirement.
“To be sure, Kennedy has given no public sign that he will retire this year and give President Donald Trump his second high court pick in the first months of his administration. Kennedy’s departure would allow conservatives to take firm control of the court.
“But Kennedy turns 81 next month and has been on the court for nearly 30 years. Several of his former law clerks have said they think he is contemplating stepping down in the next year or so. Kennedy and his clerks were gathering over the weekend for a reunion that was pushed up a year and helped spark talk he might be leaving the court.
“‘Soon we’ll know if rumors of Kennedy’s retirement are accurate,’ one former Kennedy clerk, George Washington University law professor Orin Kerr, said on Twitter Friday.”
A conservative leaning Supreme Court would be a godsend for many Americans who are growing weary of the liberal bias in other aspects of our government.
Furthermore, having the highest court in the land swinging the way of the President would be a wonderful tool for Trump to inherit, especially in this time of tumult within our nation. Radical leftist agitators are growing restless, and have attempted to commandeer the First Amendment in several uniquely bizarre ways. Now, with the possibility of a common sense judiciary, their New Fascist meddling can finally be put to rest.
