The Problem With Justice Ginsburg

There's a problem in the Supreme Court, and it's becoming more and more clear to even occasional Court-watchers.  It's the absolute iron-clad, knee-jerk thinking of the liberal wing.  In any given proceeding, there may be some question about where Chief Justice Roberts (hack, spit) may fall on an issue, and Justice Kennedy is the perennial swing vote, we all know where Ginsburg, Sotomayer, and Kagan are going to fall.  Left-wing liberals all, they've long lost any pretense of impartiality.

Justice Ginsburg gave an interview to the New York Times recently, and the air of impartiality is absolutely forgotten.  For example, on the current presidential candidates:
“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” she said. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”
So, she's anti-Trump.  Imagine that.  Of course she is, she is the statesman of the liberal wing of the court.

I remember the election of 2000.  I was fairly apolitical then, but it comes into stark clarity for me, for several reasons.  But, I remember that it was decided by a suit before the Supreme Court.  If, (God forbid) this next election comes down to a suit to decide Clinton v Trump, how do you think Ginsburg would decide?

Ginsburg has already made up her mind.  What would happen if Trump wins outright?
“‘Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand,’” Justice Ginsburg said, smiling ruefully.
For Trump to win, and Ginsburg to move to New Zealand would be a double win.

Since the Revolutionary War was fought by only about 3% of the American colonists; I have long felt that there continues to be a genetic influence in the American people. That genetic influence tends towards an unconscious fidelity towards the royals of England. Also, an unconscious yearning to be cared for and to be guarded by an entity larger then self.
I see that mind set in the progressive movement. And this answer by Ginsburg (hack, spit) seems to trigger those thoughts again. I can see why she said New Zealand; wonder why she didn't say Canada?

I don't care for Trump. I think he'd be just as bad as Hillary. But everytime these idiots open their mouths and say something like that, it gives me pause. If I thought they might actually move, I might actually vote for the fatuous pig.

Ginsburg has crossed a line that, IIRC, no other SCOTUS justice has ever crossed before now.
One could argue that it's the rambling of an octogenarian in the early stages of dementia. Still, it bodes ill for the supposed "impartiality" of SCOTUS.

Dang, I hope those liberal idiots don't move to New Zealand. It is a wonderful country, and they'd only screw it up , too.

LMAO. New Zealand is the brightest star in the SJW crown with most of the examples of meditation in juvenile offenders criminal cases cited in text books. They are very much admired by many judicial personnel here. Not to mention its a really pretty place with a decent climate and is just as rapscallion infested as anywhere else.
