Liberal Apocalypse: Reports Say Ruth Bader Ginsburg is On the Way Out

If you thought the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings were bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Brett Kavanaugh inspired liberal outrage the likes of which we haven’t seen in some time, but at the end of the day, he was filling an already-(semi) conservative seat on the Supreme Court. As was Neil Gorsuch. But if the reports are true, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the true left-wingers on the nation’s high court (and, recently, a cultural hero among millennials) is on her way out. Recuperating poorly from her most recent cancer surgery, Ginsburg sparked alarm this week when she missed opening arguments for the first time in her career.

And now reports have it that the White House is quietly planning what will undoubtedly be the most explosive Supreme Court confirmation battle in U.S. history.

From Politico:

The White House is reaching out to political allies and conservative activist groups to prepare for an ailing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s possible death or departure from the Supreme Court — an event that would trigger the second bitter confirmation battle of President Donald Trump’s tenure.

The outreach began after Ginsburg, 85, on Monday missed oral arguments at the court for the first time in her 25 years on the bench. The justice, who was nominated to the court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, announced in late December that she underwent a surgical procedure to remove two cancerous growths from her lungs.

The White House “is taking the temperature on possible short-list candidates, reaching out to key stakeholders, and just making sure that people are informed on the process,” said a source familiar with those conversations, who spoke on background given the delicate nature of the subject. “They’re doing it very quietly, of course, because the idea is not to be opportunistic, but just to be prepared so we aren’t caught flat-footed.”

There has been no word from the Ginsburg camp on her possible retirement (or worse), but a recent video from TMZ showed a woman who is clearly not doing well. For that reason alone, President Trump and his aides must prepare for the imminent possibility of replacement.

“It would be a brutal confirmation,” John Malcolm of the Heritage Foundation told Politico. “The first two were not easy at all, but this would be much harder in this respect: When Neil Gorsuch was the nominee, you were replacing a conservative with a conservative. With Kavanaugh, you were replacing the perennial swing voter, who more times than not sided with the so-called conservative wing, so that slightly solidified the conservative wing. But if you are replacing Justice Ginsburg with a Trump appointee, that would be akin to replacing Thurgood Marshall with Clarence Thomas. It would mark a large shift in the direction of the court.”

If Ginsburg retires or succumbs to her health problems in the coming weeks, mark our words: The Democrats are going to play their impeachment card early. They are going to do literally ANYTHING they can to stop Trump from naming this nominee. It is going to be ugly, and it will likely do grave, long-lasting damage to this country. Be prepared.

  1. IF she retires and after major conflict and destruction President Trump gets to put another conservative judge on the supreme court a 6-3 ratio might be too much for the 3 and cause a couple more retirements and this country will explode,,,can’t wait – TRUMP—YOU MAGNIFICENT BASTARD

    • Exactly. I suspect that Trump will be THE most influential president in 200 years. MAGA (and bring on the 2nd revolution – you KNOW the alt-left democrats WILL make it become a shooting war don’t you? THey do NOT support the US Constitution).

        • I joined the United States Marine Corps well over 40 years ago!! I was prepared to fight and to die if necessary. That’s never changed! As we say, I may not be as lean nor as mean as I once was! I’ll ALWAYS be a Marine and always stand true to the oath I voluntarily took! I was an expert rifleman then and am still an expert with the weapons I currently own and that I’ll NEVER voluntarily turn in or let anyone take. I’m “locked and loaded” and will gladly take up arms to defend what millions have died for! There are literally millions of us vets that are armed, experts with their weapons, and we’ll show up wherever and whenever we’re needed to ensure our constitution is defended and our way of life preserved! The American hunters alone are the largest armed force in the world!! We will defend our country’s constitution and our legally elected President!! Make no mistake, we are serious, we can defend this country, and if needed we WILL defend the country, the President, and the MOST important document in the world, our constitution!!

          • Sir, American Citizens have already asked too much from you. Bless and Thank You. The fight is on American Soil from Enimies Both Foreign And Domestic!

          • Bring the next civil war! I dare them! Just about every single friend I have is locked, loaded and patiently waiting! We also train every week. Id rather fight this while I can, and not leave a socialist disgraced country to my kids! Lets get it on!

          • I am left to wonder where you all were post Katrina when it was the NO police and several National Guard units going about confiscating guns (even in high and dry areas). It DID happen and extensively at that. Forced entry and all. Easy to say that a foreign invasion would generate that response. It is another when it is domestic (US Virgin Islands just another example of many). Just sayin’.

          • Steve: HooRaw & Semper Fi, and I mean it. I was your Taxi Driver, a squid for life, and proud of it. Everything you say is correct, and I feel like we may agree on a lot of things. We took an Oath and we never rescinded on it. Nancy and Diane need to go home, before we find way to LOCK THEM UP.. Diane has been trying to take away guns ever since she was the Mayor of San Francisco.

          • I’M WITH YOU 100%……
            MY OATH GOES WITH ME TO MY GRAVE……..

            OD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP…….

            GOD BLESS OUR BELOVED AMERICA AND HER TROOPS……

            WE AMERICAN PATRIOTS STAND AT THE READY……..LET’S ROLL………

          • USAF SAME OATH AND WILLING TO BACK IT UP. ARMED AND READY.NOT VERY AGILE BUT WILL DO WHAT I’M ABLE TO DO.

      • JUSTICE BARRETT……..WELCOME TO THE SCOTUS………..

        AMERICAN PATRIOTS…..ARISE…..THE TIME HAS COME….

        GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP AND VP PENCE…..

        GOD BLESS OUR BELOVED AMERICA AND HER TROOPS………..

      • You know, I don’t want to wish death on almost anyone, but the progressive hero President Woodrow Wilson was sick in bed while his wife ran the country, and nobody knew about it! He was a very sick man, and his racist progressive ideas were just as sick. it was the beginning of the end for the Republic.

    • Listen – All they will do is expedite the impeachment – And, like the article says, there will be grave, long lasting damage to the USA.

  2. I would love to see this ,what better time with the senate in republican control , this would blow the liberal socialist, democraps heads would explode , cant wait , trump needs to put another woman on the supreme court bench

  3. Trump is an instrument of the Lord. The God of Israel is alive and well and he is the trumpet of the Lord. Beware liberals, your political death is hanging over your heads like the sword of Damocles. I would prefer all these lib demos be branded with the sedition clause that used to be in effect circa 1918 during the great war. I don’t know how anyone with a high school education can stand these cretins like pelosi and shumer but the world is full of creeps who start all the trouble. Take heart America good tidings are here!

    • Amen, Richard! And God’s Judgment is fixing to start falling on America too. Reading about all that is going on, is like reading the Bible. A lot of prophecy has unfolded. I believe that God intervened, & allowed Mr. Trump to win. Otherwise he couldn’t have. They had everything already fixed to cheat the system, as usual, but God stopped it. I know people all across our country were praying against Hilary, & so were people around the world. Soros had so much money invested in Hilary winning, but it was all for naught! And, with all the shenanigans that went on in some states, there’s surely NOBODY dumb enough to believe that voter fraud doesn’t happen. But, I’m not holding my breath on that one. Just think, we’re watching the destruction of the Dimocrat party! Pelosi & Schumer have sounded the death knell, & God’s going to take them out of there. Have a blessed day!!

  4. The “Demoncrats” should be more circumspect. Their recent tactics have already alienated everone from the moderate to the conservative, and it’s aparent they don’t represent anyone but the coastal Uber Urban, Uber Liberal elites. They may think they are on a roll with the recent mid-term elections, but… they ain’t seen nothing yet! They are trying very hard to alienate a super majority of the American Public. The political party I was associated with for years as a “Bue Dog” is dead, and their “identity politics of religious murderer’s, illegals, and perverts will be their ultimate downfall.

    • they are just so set in their ways and are so arrogant and condescending, that they think we are stupid! We are tired of them. Now the former leader of the ACLU, despite her “Puff Piece” of a movie, is on her way out. She is resisting, but just like her late husband, her time is up. I say it again, if the progressives demand a Woman, give them Amy, and have our RINO women explain themselves if they don’t want her.

  5. I read the comments and was appalled. People actively wanting someone to die is horrible. I’ve never seen libs wanting Trump to die. This is sickening and we should be better than this.

    • Then you haven’t read comments on the internet very much as the Democrats wish every conceivable evil upon the President. I don’t see how he does the job every day when he has to put up with the constant badmouthing he receives from the hypocritical left.

    • I didn’t read that anybody wanted her dead. None of us should wish that on anybody. If they’re a Christian, then their death is actually a triumph. If they’re NOT a Christian, then their soul is bound for hell. Personally I wish she’d just retire, & take care of herself. And, stay OUT of politics! And, God decides who lives, & who dies.

    • Are you kidding me?? Madonna wanted to blow up the White House, Rosie has wished him dead on a daily basis and they were stalking Barron. Every nut in Hollywood has threatened to kill him remember the secret service visiting them?? You liberals really have selective memory don’t you. Liberals think if they deny it pretend they didn’t say it I guess it didn’t happen.

  6. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN …….LIVING UNDER A ROCK……

    DEMOCRAT COMMUNISTS WISH PRESIDENT TRUMP TO BE DEAD ON A DAILY, IF NOT HOURLY, BASIS……….

    • Well, I don’t wish her dead but This woman is not what I consider a good American. She has anti-constitutional beliefs. Now that she should have retired a year ago she held on to allow Hillary to make the selection knowing she would go liberal. She is a judge and endowed with ther most important position this country has to offer next to POTUS. If she were a true American she would not have hung on for political reasons. The irony— she lost! BTW I am ready for what you guys are ready for. Lock and load.

  7. They need to think about it. She’s older, been ill, major surgeries..can’t presume she can still do the job. Get the feeling someone been ‘propping her up’ for long time–but, who knows. Getting close to 90 years old ..90 is NOT the new 40. and yes, the left-loons will go into major cardiac arrest over ANYONE President Trump recommends.

  8. Miko: You maybe a Republican, but your mouth sounds more like K.O.C. who called our President a nasty name, which you have just done! Shame on you!!!! Do you have any idea what the word ‘bastard’ means? Obviously not, but let me explain to you:
    it means ”a child whose mother was not married & bore the child out of wedlock!
    Excuse me, President Trump”s mother was married to his father when he was born, so please don’t judge him by yourself!!!!!!

  9. I will never wish death upon anyone. I also do not agree with Ginsburg when she does not follow our U.S. Constitution as it was written, or giving her personal feelings publicly that contradict what the people of this country have lived, died, & stand for. I also believe that no matter the political side of the isle, one of these Supreme court Justices sits on, there should be not only a age limit (75-80), but when any of them demonstrates inability to perform their functions, mentally or physically, they should immediately be replaced. We have actually had Supreme Court Judges that have had Alzheimer’s or Dementia & continued serving. Why has this been allowed to continue. It has been apparent for some time now, especially when Ginsburg falls to sleep on the bench, that she has not been completely efficient in her ability to perform as a Justice. I also am a Cancer Survivor. For Ruth, I would tell her, that what ever time she has left, to relinquish the Justice position, and now go live her life to the fullest possible, on a beach somewhere, sipping Margaritas, with a stud named Dexter serving her, Night & Day! Also, thank her for her service, even if I never agreed with it! Take Care Ruth.
    And, LONG LIVE TRUMP! you are definitely one of GODS Angels! Thank You GOD!

    • Betsy, both Mike and Jean were complementing President Trump. You may not like the word bastard, but in neither post was it meant in a derogatory manner.

  10. Rebalancing the Federal Courts to curtail their use by political-activist-plaintiffs looking to change policies from the bench — that’s likely a done deal with replacement of RBG, and appointment of another 100 District and Circuit Judges. It’s a bit early to be celebrating.

    That said, there is still the problem of the liberal-prog lock-hold on academia and K-12 public education.
    The way that changes is a youth post-racial rebellion, led by the independent thinkers, with advanced meritocratic oratorical skills. There’s something to think about. We should be immersing young teens in adult activities as soon as they can handle the responsibility, so that by college age, they can diplomatically shred the weak, “group think” arguments of their professors.

    We can celebrate when under 18’s are mostly all rejecting the Pelosi-AOC neosocialist playbook as tired and spent 35 years ago.

  11. OH Really ?? Everyone in hollywood has said it about Trump. not to mention the media . Where have you been hiding . If she dies it would be a blessing , no one wants to see another suffer. give her a break shes had a good run and no one lives forever.

  12. I do not wish Ginsburg any ill. However, I don’t think the Country can take another display of lies and hatred such as was shown by the left-wing-nutty-liberals in the Democrat Party during Justice Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing. The whole world was watching that grotesque sideshow and I’m sure they were wondering where in Heaven’s name any semblance of civility in the United States had gotten to.

  13. Listen Republicans make sure in our fight for the replacement of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg YOU USE HER OWN WORDS ABOUT Justice Kavanaugh’s treatment by dumbocrats ‘ It’s a shame the way they treated him’! BY THE WAY YOUR CAPTCHA DONT WORK.

  14. The Dems still having no platform to offer voters except government giveaways at the taxpayers expense of course. We need to have legal picture ID to vote for all federal elections. I live in Idaho and we have to show valid photo ID. Even to get your electricity turned on here you need a valid social security number or someone to co sign for your service who has one. Of course you need a valid picture ID to enter the Federal Buildings. If the Dems have their way we will have no protection against ignorant people who do not know how to live in this country but certainly want the government dole outs. Our President is trying to get us safe in our own country. The Dems treat US Citizens like sheeple and collateral damage to their personal agendas to obstruct the president no matter what he does. Pathetic.

  15. I have no doubt in my President that he has the fire in his belly to fight the leftist Democrat communist on the next Justify nomination. I am also of a mind that if there has to be a fight then let it begin and start here. I am not sure of the confidence I have in the Republican Party members and can only pray all Republican senators have a sufficient willpower and resolve to fight for the survival of our republic and rights and freedoms protected by our Bill of Rights.

  16. Isn’t it something that the very thing – Communism – we fought against in various wars is the very thing that is destroying America today? We have judges too sick to serve and who hate America making very important decisions that affect us all for an endless time. We elect politicians – and pay them – to continue taking us down this road of destruction. America is sold out by her own and who really is doing anything about it? ONE MAN – One man who didn’t ‘have’ to take the job of President but chose to because he loves America and is working desperately to save her while the whole ‘hate America political and media machine’ fight him every inch of the way. We truly are living in the Best of Times (Trump) and the Worst of Times (Democrats).

  17. I will be so glad when trump gets to appoint another justice on supreme court , and I hope he will nominate more local federal judges , trump has nominated more federal judges to courts than last 2 presidents combined trump will shape the courts for the next 30-40 years in America I would be glad if we can break up the 9th court and replace them with constitutional judges judges who abide by the constitution instead of making up laws from the bench as they do , go trump and pence 4 more years
