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.
Finally, I have something in common with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg …
Remember when Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was caught on camera dozing off during Barack Obama’s SOTU? Ginsberg was seen nodding off about 20 minutes into Obama’s 59-minute speech of bovine scatology. It turns out she was not just sleepy and bored from Obama’s blathering, the 81 year old Justice admitted she wasn’t “100% sober”. YOU GOTTA LOVE IT!!! Hey Justice Ginsberg do not worry, most of America cannot listen to this president without being drunk as well.
As a matter of fact, we have drinking parties during Obama’s SOTU’s to be able to get through them. Obama said, “I” or “me” … DRINK! Obama just provided another give a way and called it free … DRINK! What other way could you listen to Obama lecture and lie for nearly an hour without being hammered?
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg admitted that she wasn’t “100 percent sober” when she dozed off during President Barack Obama’s State of the Union this year.
“The audience for the most part is awake, because they’re bobbing up and down, and we sit there, stone-faced, sober judges. But we’re not, at least I wasn’t, 100 percent sober,” Ginsburg told an audience at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., Thursday night.
“Because before we went to the State of the Union, Justice Kennedy brought in … it was an Opus something or other, very fine California wine, and I vowed this year, just sparkling water, stay away from the wine, but in the end, the dinner was so delicious, it needed wine,” Ginsburg said. “So I got a call when I came home from one of my granddaughters and she said, ‘Bubbe, you were sleeping at the State of the Union!”
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is predicting “sharp disagreements.” That’s what happens when Justices use political ideology rather than the US Constitution to make a decision.
Within the next couple of weeks the Supreme Court will finally make a decision on the Constitutionality of the individual mandate and Obamacare. The SCOTUS will also make decisions on Arizona’s immigration law, television broadcast indecency enforcement, and a federal law making it a crime to lie about earning high military honors. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said on Friday at a conference hosted by the American Constitution Society at the Capital Hilton, “As one may expect, many of the most controversial cases remain pending. So it is likely that the sharp disagreement rate will go up next week and the week after.”
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is predicting “sharp disagreement” as the Supreme Court prepares by month’s end to release some of its most-talked-about rulings, including the constitutionality of the health care law championed by President Obama.
Speaking to a legal conference Friday night in Washington, the oldest member of the high court offered tantalizing hints about where the court may be heading in coming days.
“The term has been more than usually taxing, some have called it the term of the century,” she said in remarks at the American Constitution Society’s annual review of the court. The ACS is a left-leaning legal advocacy and scholarship group.
From Forbes comes the story that based on Intrade, there is a 69.9% chance that the Supreme Court will strike down the individual mandate in the national healthcare reform act. Correction, Intrade has it up to 73.5%.
Why the 2012 Presidential Election is So Important to Vote Obama Out of Office … Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Stepping Down in 2015
A note to all Republicans and right leaning Independents no matter what GOP candidate you favor … ELECTIONS MATTER!!!
Forget about the poor US economy, the 5 million lost employees who simply gave up, the real un/under-emplyment number, the $878 billion wasted stimulus plan, the out of control national debt, and an energy policy that puts politics ahead of jobs and energy independence … “We the People” have just been present with one more huge reason why Barack Obama must be voted out of office in 2012 …
According to the UPI, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Gingburg plans to step down in 2015.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will step down from the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015 to give President Obama, putatively in his second term, a chance to name a liberal as her successor.
That’s the conclusion of Tom Goldstein, founder and padrone of SCOSTUSBLOG.com, one of the premier Supreme Court litigators in active practice — he’s argued 24 cases before the justices — and
In the swashbuckling , devil-may-care style familiar to those who know him, Goldstein admits his prediction is speculation.
“The odds are good that Justice Ginsburg will retire in the third year of a second Obama term,” he writes in SCOTUSBLOG. “That is only a presumption, and I doubt that the justice herself has made concrete plans. [Obama's] re-election itself is highly uncertain, and much can change in one’s thinking over the next three years.
“Nonetheless, the justice has sent signals that correspond with a likely retirement at that time.”
Ginsburg’s retirement would have nothing to do with her two bouts of cancer, both of which she bested.
Every wonder why the 2012 Presidential election is so important? The United States of America and SCOTUS cannot take Barack Obama appointing two more justices. Previously some Democrats had wanted Bader Ginsburg to step down prior to the 2012 election as they were not confident in Obama’s reelection.
