RINO & Failed GOP Establishement Presidential Candidate John McCain Says, ‘I don’t know’ if Donald Trump will be better for Supreme Court than Hillary Clinton
I GUESS THIS IS MCCAIN’S IDEA OF BEING MAVERICKY …
UNBELIEVABLE … Sen. John McCain (Rino-AZ) says in an interview that he does not know whether Donald Trump will be better in nominating justices to the US Supreme Court than Hillary Clinton. Seriously? If McCain a so-called Republican, does not know whether the GOP candidate for President would or would not be better in selecting possible justices to the SCOTUS over a bed-wetting liberal and proven liar like Hillary Clinton, maybe its time for him to retire. If you ever wondered what happened to the Republican party, look no further than “mavericky” GOP Senator John McCain.
What a bunch of crap coming from the RINO and former failed establishment Republican presidential candidate. This fools answer is to block Hillary Clinton’s SCOTUS nominees, yet in the same breath he is saying that he does not know if Trump would be any better? As stated at Hot Air, this is the one subject we know that all Republicans can agree with when it comes to The Donald. Trump has already released a list of 20 potential SCOTUS nominees and none would be questioned by Republicans. Sadly, this is what has gone wrong with the Republican party, establishment candidates need to be flushed out and replaced with those that actually care about the country and not their own political power.
Trump has released lists of 21 potential justices. He has pledged to choose from among those 21 when making Supreme Court selections, in a move that has earned him praise from conservatives, including his former rival in the Republican primary, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
Asked on the Dom Giordano program on 1210 WPHT Philadelphia radio whether Trump was the superior candidate on issues like the Supreme Court, the Arizona senator replied, “Uh, first of all, I don’t know, because I hear him saying a lot of different things.”
Later in the interview, McCain used the opportunity to make the case for fellow Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, who is locked in a close battle to retain his Senate seat in Pennsylvania. McCain promised that Republicans would be “united against any Supreme Court nominee” put forth by Clinton.
“I promise you that we will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton, if she were president, would put up,” McCain said. “I promise you. This is where we need the majority and Pat Toomey is probably as articulate and effective on the floor of the Senate as anyone I have encountered.”
This is exactly the kind of Republican establishment BS that Americans have grown sick and tired of. Really, the gutless and spineless establishment Republicans like McCain are going to unite and block a Hillary Clinton SCOTUS nominee? No you are not. The GOP was given control of the House to stop Obamacare, they did nothing. The GOP was given control of the Senate to repeal Obamacare and balance the budget, they did nothing. What makes any Republican think these gutless wonders would stand up to Hillary Clinton?
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Says of Colin Kaepernick’s Protesting During National Anthem … “I Think It’s Dumb and Disrespectful”
It just goes to show you that those on the Left and Right can agree on some things …
In an interview with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric, liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg stated that Colin Kaepernick’s protest during the national anthem and those that do the same as “dumb and disrespectful.” She went on to say that it isn’t a crime to protest the National Anthem and no one should ever be arrested for doing so, but she opined, “I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act.” Needless to say, Ginsburg, a darling of the LEFT, has upset the unhinged Left with her comments.
It is rather remarkable that some one on the LEFT like Justice Ginsburg would have such an opinion like this but we have to remember … there used to be a time on the Left where liberals actually liked and respected America. The Democrat party used to be for the working, blue color people, not the socialist party that it has turned into today.
In “My Own Words,” a new compilation of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s writings over the course her lifetime, the vim and vigor that she is famous for expressing from the Supreme Court bench is just as apparent in her high school editorials.
Ginsburg has spent decades weighing in on issues most important to her — such as gender and religion — and in a new interview with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric, she did not mince words when weighing in on the current election, the state of the court and controversy surrounding the national anthem.
With more and more football players across the country refusing to stand for the national anthem before games, Justice Ginsburg called the protest “dumb and disrespectful.”
When asked by Couric how she feels about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and others athletes, refusing to stand for the anthem, Ginsburg replied, “I think it’s really dumb of them.”
“Would I arrest them for doing it? No,” Ginsburg elaborated. “I think it’s dumb and disrespectful. I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. I think it’s a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn’t lock a person up for doing it. I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act.”
83 Year Old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Crosses the Line … Calls Trump a “Faker” (Update: Trump Responds, “Her Mind is Shot, Resign!)
JUST IMAGINE WHAT THE MSM WOULD BE SAYING IF JUSTICE CLARENCE THOMAS MADE SUCH A COMMENT ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON?
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg crossed the line when she made insulting and partisan political comments regarding Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president. Justice Ginsburg called Trump “a faker” who must release his tax returns and criticized the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, for having no consistency and for saying whatever comes into his head at any moment. She went on to say that Trump had an ego and could not imagine the possibility that Trump could be president. In the same CNN interview, Ginsburg suggested she believes the next president will be presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton. Of course there was no mention from Justice Ginsburg that Hillary was a liar and an unindicted fraud who put the United States national security at risk with the use of her private email server while serving as Secretary of State under Barack Obama. Of course not. But these bizarre comments, that certainly crossed the line, also seem to create the appearance of impropriety that Ginsburg could ever act in an non-bias manner if trump was elected President.
“How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns?” Ginsburg said late Monday, according to CNN. “The press seems to be very gentle with him on that
“Every other presidential candidate has turned over tax returns,” she said.
Ginsburg also criticized Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, for having no consistency and for saying whatever comes into his head at any moment.
“He really has an ego,” she said.
“I think he has gotten so much free publicity. At first I thought it was funny. To think that there’s a possibility that he could be president.”
Really, who has an ego and who has no consistency and for saying whatever comes into his head at any moment? One might just say that about you RBG. How on earth could this justice ever judge a case fairly?
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) says Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg crossed a line attacking Donald Trump.
“It was totally inexcusable and unprofessional for Justice Ginsburg to insult a presidential candidate,” he said Tuesday on the House floor, according to The Washington Examiner. “It hurt the credibility of the Supreme Court and it showed bad judgment.
“It will be difficult for the American people to believe Justice Ginsburg can be impartial in any rulings that involve political issues,” added Smith, who has endorsed Trump. “[It will] only contribute to the public’s feeling that justice system may be rigged.”
In response to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s ‘Faker’ comments, Donald Trump called for Ruth Bader Ginsburg to resign. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee tweeted Justice Ginsburg’s “mind is shot” and should “resign.”
My personal opinion is that this may just backfire on the LEFT and be just what Donald Trump needed just ahead of the GOP National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. These are the kinds of things that the GOP needs to be slapped upside the head with, especially the establishment and Never-Trumpers. We all know the political system is rigged, now we are witness the the SCOTUS being rigged too. Justices are never supposed to dabble in the political rhealm for the appearance of bias when ruling on cases. So much for that now. 83 year old RBG embarrassed herself and as Slate reported, may have risked her legacy to insult Donald Trump.
These comments will most certainly be spoken at the RNC and all will be reminded that elections have consequences. Numerous SCOTUS positions will most likely be nominated by the next president, RGB being one of them.
THIS CAN’T NE A GOOD THING … Clarence Thomas may be next to leave SCOTUS.
Maybe the reporting that Conservative Constitutionalist Justice Clarence Thomas might be the next to step down from the SCOTUS will make GOP jackasses that are hell bent on going against Trump and all but ensuring a Hillary Clinton victory will wake the hell up. Elections have consequences and the next president of the United States looks like they will be choosing 3 justices.
Justice Clarence Thomas, a reliable conservative vote on the Supreme Court, is mulling retirement after the presidential election, according to court watchers.
Thomas, appointed by former President George H.W. Bush and approved by the Senate after a bitter confirmation, has been considering retirement for a while and never planned to stay until he died, they said. He likes to spend summers in his RV with his wife.
His retirement would have a substantial impact on control of the court. The next president is expected to immediately replace the seat opened by the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, providing a one-vote edge in the court that is currently divided 4-4.
Should Thomas leave, that slight majority would continue if Donald Trump becomes president. If it’s Hillary Clinton, then she would get the chance to flip two Republican seats, giving the liberals a 6-3 majority.
However, as per The Right Scoop, his wife has denied this on Facebook.
THE DONALD’S SCOTUS PICKS ARE IN …
Yesterday, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump released his much anticipated list of individuals that he would nominate to replace the dearly departed Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court, if Trump was to be elected president of the United States. The names on the list are as follows: Steven Colloton, Allison Eid, Raymond Gruender, Thomas Hardiman, Raymond Kethledge, Thomas Lee, Joan Larsen, William Pryor, David Stras, Diane Sykes, Don Willett. Hmm, absent from the list was Sen. Ted Cruz. Trump needed to put forth this list to ease the minds of many on the right as to what kind of justice he would nominate for such an important appointment for years to come.
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday released a list of 11 potential picks to replace Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court, a mix of federal and state judges that appeared tailored to win over conservatives still skeptical of his candidacy.
The decision to release such a list is highly unusual for a presidential candidate, and comes as Trump is working to unite a Republican Party fractured by his candidacy and assuage still-skeptical establishment Republicans who question his ability to win a general election.
“I have a lot of people that are conservative that really like me, love everything I stand for, but they really would like to know my view,” Trump said Wednesday in an interview with Fox News, “because perhaps outside of the defense of our country, perhaps the single most important thing the next president is going to have to do is pick Supreme Court justices.”
The list, which featured several prominent names floated repeatedly on conservative wish lists to replace Scalia, won immediate praise from those Trump is trying to win over.
“This list ought to be encouraging to anyone who prioritizes the rule of law, and I congratulate Mr. Trump on making a very significant policy statement about his desire to prioritize the future of the Supreme Court,” said Carrie Severino of the Judicial Crisis Network, a group leading the opposition to President Barack’s Obama’s pick to replace Scalia, Merrick Garland.
Trump first said in March that he planned to release a list of potential justices in an effort to ease concerns about his conservative credentials, which had come under attack in the heated Republican primary. Among his critics was Cruz, who ran an ad saying Trump could not be trusted with a Supreme Court nomination.
“Mr. Trump has laid out an impressive list of highly qualified jurists, including Judge Colloton from Iowa, who understand and respect the fundamental principle that the role of the courts is limited and subject to the Constitution and the rule of law,” Grassley released in a statement. “Understanding the types of judges a presidential nominee would select for the Supreme Court is an important step in this debate so the American people can have a voice in the direction of the Supreme Court for the next generation.”
