It will be the 1st of June, so the Senate will have adequate time to shepherd his replacement through the process.

But, like I said, I base that upon NOTHING. JM2C YMMV
Well, I was wrong about that.

If Kennedy doesn't announce his retirement by the 4th of July, I hope Thomas announces his retirement so that Trump can replace him with a Scalia clone.

I share that belief. I think, in their eyes, to retire under Trump is to recognize him as legitimate and respect his ability to choose a suitable replacement. Ds don't retire under RS for this reason. Rs don't retire under Ds for this reason. Nobody retires under Trump if thy have any choice in the matter.

They (the liberal progressives) will tell you that he is illegitimate because Hillary won the popular vote. This has been promulgated mostly by CNN (the Clinton News Network). They conveniently ignore the fact the Electoral College is the law of the land and the popular vote in Presidential elections means nothing. The founders deliberately put it there to prevent Virginia from controlling the rest of the country. They are attempting to end run it again and again but the rest of the country is not disposed to hand control over to CA and NY.

There is nothing liberal or progressive about adhering to 19th century populism and debunked economic "theories".

Waiting on Ginzburg and Kennedy being replaced very soon.

That's the last day on this calendar, and any retirements would be hled until then. Once the business of this term is completed, we may see some movement.

I had this crazy dream the other night that Kennedy announces his retirement next week and then that very same night RBG croaks. The left subsequently TOTALLY freaked out, a massive meltdown ensued and libtard heads started to EXPOLDE!

Now that we all understand that no justice will "retire" under Trump, who is slated to die off first? We know that those old birds won't last until 2024.

We do? When did we decide no one is going to retire? We don't even know about Kennedy this year yet.

NEGATIVE!!

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018...to-retire.html

Justice Anthony Kennedy announced Wednesday that he is retiring, giving President Trump a critical opportunity to move the Supreme Court more solidly to the right in what promises to be an epic confirmation fight.

The 81-year-old senior associate justice informed the White House in a letter of his intention to step down from the high court after 30 years, effective July 31. Rumors of another vacancy have reverberated across Washington in recent months, and it comes a year after Kennedy's former law clerk Justice Neil Gorsuch, took over the seat occupied by the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Buckle up: SCOTUS Fireworks to extend far beyond the 4th... Margin for error is thin with McCain MIA, Flake rebelling (said before today he won't vote for judicial nominees until Senate votes on tariffs), Corker doing his thing (neither of the last two subject to re-election or political enticement). And the Dems (even those in red states like Manchin) are going to be under extreme pressure to hold the blue line.

All very good points and we can now thank the moron voters of Alabama who stayed home and helped elect another Democrat to the Senate which is now looming large with such a thin Republican margin.

We should easily pick-up a few Senate seats this November, so I am not too worried, however that could delay a new justice well into the next SCOTUS term until the Senate composition is officially changed in January/2019.

While this is definitely something to celebrate (Kennedy probably wasn't on our side re. RBA or the other 2nd A cases denied cert., IOW Kennedy was a "swing vote" re. the 2nd A), the real party won't be until an anti (RBG, Breyer, Sotomayor or Kagan) is replaced by a pro.

But for today, it is a time of celebration because Trump should be able to get another "Scalia clone" on the Bench before the Nov midterm elections.



Then, if the GOP retains control of the Senate in Nov, I hope Thomas soon retires (nothing against him, he's been FANTASTIC!!!), so that Trump can get a 3rd Scalia clone (or a Thomas clone). And then, if an anti leaves ...

The current balance is 51:49. Even with two GOP Senators abstaining from the vote, Pence's voice will the decisive. I don't foresee any issue, unless Trump changes his tactics.

Kennedy was mostly pro-2A, that probably won't change much for us, but this replacement may solidify the conservative line on other issues. Ginsburg won't voluntary retire in the current political layout.

Retaining control of the Senate remains critical.

If you're one of those who believe that Kennedy was the reason for the unfavorable language in Heller, this is a nice upgrade, but we'll have to see just how pro-2A Roberts is, and that's assuming Trump's two picks come through as pro-2A.

If Roberts and Trump's twins are pro-2A, then we have 5 votes, and need nothing from anyone. We can grant cert to any case we want, and we cannot be stopped from winning it. If Roberts is as wishy-washy as he seems, then we still need Ginsburg / Breyer to retire.

Imagine if Trump gets re-elected, and Ginsburg, Thomas and Breyer all retire. If all of Trump's replacements are pro-2A, we will never lose another 2A case in our lifetimes.

While Kennedy was part of "the Heller five" there has been much speculation that he has been the impediment to all recent RKBA cases being denied cert.

Replacing Kennedy is a huge win for the RKBA!

Mitch McConnell dodges question if he'll treat Trump the same as Obama and NOT confirm any Supreme Court nominees in 2020

* Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell held up Merrick Garland's confirmation to the Supreme Court during President Obama's final year in office
* He argued the new president should get to the Supreme Court nomination
* His gamble paid off when Trump won and nominated Neil Gorsuch
* McConnell wouldn't say if that same philosophy would apply in 2020
* 'Will see if there's a vacancy in 2020,' he said on 'Fox News Sunday'

IMO, this "rule" should only apply when the incumbent won't be (or can't) seek re-election (aka "lame duck"). IOW, when you know for sure someone new will be taking office. Assuming Trump will seek re-election, it won't apply to him.

It's not a long standing tradition anyway.
It has happened in the past... it has been ignored in the past.
The last time it applied was when Bush was a lame duck (not SCOTUS, judicial appointments in general) and the dems refused to vote on them.

Chucky needs to learn that what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Elections have consequences.

Now the Dems are thinking about packing the SCOTUS a la FDR:

https://www.breitbart.com/big-govern...iberal-judges/

Hell, if the Dems want 11 judges on SCOTUS, why wait? Let's give it to them now by installing 2 more conservative judges.

The first party to do that will be responsible for the delegitimization of an entire branch of government. Then again, perhaps it's past time. The seats became politicized when they started inventing rights not enumerated in the constitution

Disagree.

Either party can do anything, and it will be completely "legitimate" in the eyes of the base of that party.

Since the Ds control the urban areas with (as of now) a slight majority of the population, if they increase the number of seats on SCOTUS, it will be perfectly fine with most Americans.

Also, there is nothing in the Constitution requiring only 9 Justices, so it's not unreasonable to consider an increase in the number of Justices. So those from the opposing party who aren't such zealots but actually read the Constitution would not necessarily have any legal complaints with any potential changes to the number of Justices on SCOTUS.

However, stacking the Court was tried before, and failed, and that was back when FDR was popular and had the support of both houses.

But we probably both agree that the Ds would love to stack the Court; they've been fantasizing about it for years. Here's an opinion piece from a moron in the NYT from 11 years ago:
https://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/26/opinion/26smith.html
(in case you're wondering, the author can be identified as a moron when it says, "If the current five-man majority persists in thumbing its nose at popular values, [then Congress should add Justices to the Court]")

I disagree, because we all know they would do it to break the constitution- as you point out in your last line.

Thanks for the history lesson, but as you point out, the political landscape then is not the landscape of today.

"thumbing its nose at popular values", not "interpreting the meaning of the constitution with respect to modern issues"
And that's my point. The reason the left would add justices is to regain a majority of seats which want to subvert the constitution and invent a bunch of new "progressive" rights by legislating from the bench. I can't wait until I'm legally compelled to use "Xe/Xir" like they are in Canada

Does anyone know or have thoughts on why RGB was hanging her head so low in her last interview ? She was extremely low energy, and I don't think she made eye contact with the host very often. It was almost like she was passing out on the stage.

She is known for falling asleep in the middle of various events. Even in court I've seen it reported.

This story is regarding an instance during the 2015 State of the Union address.

Maybe she drinks too much wine, or drinks it too often.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...nion/23360117/

Quote:
Justice Ginsburg: Not '100% sober' at State of the Union

WASHINGTON – For Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, falling asleep at the State of the Union address is nothing new. All it takes is a good glass of wine.

As she did two years ago, Ginsburg admitted Thursday night that, yes, the photos of her appearing to nod off at President Obama's big speech last month showed her dozing. "As I often do," she said.

But there was a good reason, she added: "I wasn't 100% sober."

Seems before the address, some of the justices got together for dinner, and the lone Californian among them, Justice Anthony Kennedy, supplied some excellent California wine. Ginsburg had sworn she would stick to sparkling water, but "the dinner was so delicious, it needed wine."

It seems different .. So I can understand that she's listening to someone talk and it's boring , and she gets sleepy. I can see it happening when she's in a crowd.

This time was different. She was "falling asleep" in the middle of her own interview .. That seems like something more than knodding off at crowd event.

She should go home, and enjoy her afternoon naps, like other folks her age.

Last night in her office, RBG fell and broke three ribs. She’s been admitted to Geo Wash hospital for observation and treatment....
