Ruth Bader Ginsburg Turns on Democrat Party, Sends Leftists a Crystal Clear Message They Never Saw Coming

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an icon to those on the left. They see her as their hero and stalwart on the Court. But they’re not going to like what Ginsburg had to say about the Kavanaugh hearing.

Justice Ginsburg decried the partisanship on display during the hearing.

She spoke of the bipartisanship on display when she was confirmed and wished that Kavanaugh received the same fair treatment that she had receieved.

From Townhall:


“The way it was, was right,” she told former Ginsburg clerk and current California Supreme Court Justice Goodwin Liu. “The way it is, is wrong. The atmosphere in ’93 was truly bipartisan.”

She had proof. Ginsburg recalled that the Clinton White House handlers were “nervous” about the 10 years she spent litigating cases under the ACLU board. They were convinced that the Senate would press her on that part of her judicial record. She told the White House she refused to “bad mouth” the group, but it turned out she didn’t need to anyway. There was “not a single question from any senator about it,” she said.

It was the same for Justices Stephen Breyer and Antonin Scalia. Scalia had been on D.C. circuit and the Senate had plenty of material to work with in terms of their interrogation. Yet, the vote was unanimous – every Democrat and every Republican voted for him.

“That’s the way it should be,” she said.

Republicans knew she was liberal. Yet they also recognized that she was qualified and judged based on qualifications, not politics.

By contrast, Democrats wanted every document Kavanaugh ever had anything to do with ever, asking for more documents than ever in history and spent the hearings lying and smearing him.

“I wish I could wave a magic wand and have it go back to the way it was,” Ginsburg said.

POLL: Should Brett Kavanaugh be APPROVED for the Supreme Court?

Yes

No

I’m not sure

Ginsburg shows the SCOTUS disturbance at how Senators behaved in the hearing was bipartisan.

This followed comments by Justice Clarence Thomas who also chastised the way people carried on in the hearing, saying they should be concentrating on the proper questions, not performing as “Spartacus,” referring to Sen. Cory Booker’s grandstanding.

The SCOTUS appears to be a model of that bipartisanship, with Ginsburg and the late Justice Antonin Scalia forming a close friendship despite being on the opposite ends of the political spectrum. Ginsburg spoke of her “special fondness” for Scalia last year while receiving a civility award.

During the interview with Liu about the Kavanaugh hearing, Ginsburg appeared to be speaking slowly and her head was frequently down, raising questions about whether she was well.

Mixed thoughts about RBG. Previously she stated that pedophilia was good for children. That raised red flags.
But, as Q suggests, she is on her way out very soon. So maybe she is trying to score points before then.
Still, he’s on the mark about Spartacus and the others peddling their private agendas and not that of America as a whole. Hope they will be happy together in Gitmo 1 or Gitmo 2 … or on the moon.

A little History and some perspective. From a USA Today report. A grudge match between GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump and U.S. Sen. John McCain erupted into a full media conflagration when Trump belittled McCain’s military service. It had been a low-grade back-and-forth, with Trump saying McCain was an “incompetent” politician, “very weak on immigration” and that “… If the right person runs against John McCain, he will lose.” For his part, McCain had distanced himself from Trump and his anti (ILLEGAL) immigrant stance. That changed , when the New Yorker published part of writer Ryan Lizza’s interview with McCain.… Read more »

Democrats have been acting like spoiled brats that can,t have their candy! America is better than this, step up and be an adult! The hearing at the beginning was like a circus! If all can,t have a say, then why should we hear only from extremists!

Much like cult actions it is frightening listening to what they did to Cruz and his wife at a public place harrassment charges should be filed why are they allowed to do such things with no consequences they reminded me of the movie Children of The Corn

I have followed politics for 6o years, I am a hard core conservative, yet I consider Truman and Johnson two of our greatest presidents. Truman for integrating the military, and Johnson for the Civil Rights act, the Anti lynching laws and the Voting Rights act, which was done with more GOP support than democrat sup support. We need to stop this right/left crap and start acting like the united people we are.
