Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg favors decriminalizing pedophilia and child sex trafficking

The legal definition of “age of consent” is:

Age of consent refers to the legally defined age at which a person is no longer required to obtain parental consent to get married. It also refers to the age at which a person is held to have the capacity to voluntarily agree to sexual intercourse. Sexual intercourse with a person under the age of consent may lead to criminal charges of statutory rape or sexual assault . . . .

Statutory rape is sex between an adult and a minor below the age of consent. Every state has a statutory rape law in some form. The age of consent varies from state to state, but is generally from 16 – 18 years of age. . . . Consent of the victim and belief that the victim is of the age of consent are usually considered immaterial.

A pedophile is an adult with “sexual fondness for and activity” with children, i.e., minors below the age of consent. Pedophilia is legally defined as sexual child abuse, i.e., any sexual activity with a minor below the age of consent, which includes fondling a child’s genitals, intercourse, incest, rape, sodomy, exhibitionism, and commercial exploitation of children through prostitution or the production of pornographic materials.

Since the age of consent in the United States which varies from state to state is  from 16 to 18, lowering the age of consent to 12 would legalize pedophilia of children age 12 and above.

That is exactly what Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Clinton appointee and daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants, recommends in a co-authored book that led to sweeping changes made by the federal government in the name of sex equality.

In 1977 when Ginsburg was General Counsel of the ACLU, she co-authored (with Brenda Feigen-Fasteau) Sex Bias in the U.S. Code: A Report of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, which was published by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in April 1977, for which Ginsburg and Feigen-Fasteau were paid with federal funds under Contract No. CR3AK010.

The 230-page Sex Bias in the U.S. Code identifies hundreds of federal laws alleged to discriminate against women and recommends an avalanche of government and social changes, including:

  • Military draft and combat duty for women.
  • Legalization of prostitution (see pages 97, 99, 215-216 of Sex Bias in the U.S. Code)
  • Sex integration of prisons, reformatories, schools and colleges and their activities (including sports), all-girls and all-boys organizations, and fraternities and sororities.
  • Changing the names of the Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts and Big Brothers of America to reflect sex integration (see pages 145, 205 of Sex Bias in the U.S. Code).
  • Elimination of the traditional family concept of husband as breadwinner and wife as homemaker.
  • Comprehensive government child-care.
  • Adoption of sex-neutral language, e.g., “artificial” instead of “manmade”; “person, human” instead of “man, woman”; and plural nouns “they” and “them” instead of “singular third person pronouns”. At the same time, however, Ginsburg and Feigen-Fasteau hypocritically insist that the U.S. Department of Labor retains its “Women’s Bureau”.

On p. 102 of Sex Bias in the U.S. Code, under the sub-heading “Recommendations,” Ginsburg and Feigen-Fasteau recommend a revision of 18 U.S.C. §2032 from “carnal knowledge of any female, not his wife who has not attained the age of sixteen years” to “A person is guilty of an offense if he engages in a sexual act with another person, not his spouse, and . . . the other person is, in fact, less than 12 years old“. Below is the pertinent paragraph:

18 U.S.C. §2032 — Eliminate the phrase “carnal knowledge of any female, not his wife who has not attained the age of sixteen years” and substitute a Federal, sex-neutral definition of the offense patterned after S. 1400 §1633: A person is guilty of an offense if he engages in a sexual act with another person, not his spouse, and (1) compels the other person to participate: (A) by force or (B) by threatening or placing the other person in fear that any person will imminently be subjected to death, serious bodily injury, or kidnapping; (2) has substantially impaired the other person’s power to appraise or control the conduct by administering or employing a drug or intoxicant without the knowledge or against the will of such other person, or by other means; or (3) the other person is, in fact, less than 12 years old.

Ginsburg (and her co-author) also recommends that the Mann Act be repealed. The Mann Act is a federal law passed in 1910 which makes it a felony to engage in interstate or foreign commerce transport of “any woman or girl for the purpose of prostitution or debauchery, or for any other immoral purpose”.

From Sex Bias in the U.S. Code, pp. 98-99:

The Mann Act . . . poses the invasion of privacy issue in an acute form. The Mann Act also is offensive because of the image of women it perpetuates . . . . It was meant to protect from ‘the villainous interstate and international traffic in women and girls,’ ‘those women and girls who, if given a fair chance, would, in all human probability, have been good wives and mothers and useful citizens. . . .’

In other words, if Ruth Bader Ginsburg has her way, sexual abuse of children 12-years or older would not be a crime, nor would child sex trafficking.

Ginsburg will be 84 next month. May President Trump be given the opportunity to nominate her replacement on the Supreme Court.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Kaepernick protests: ‘I think it’s dumb and disrespectful’

kaepernick-taking-a-knee

From CNN: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, never shy to weigh in on the controversies of the day, said she thinks “it’s really dumb” for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and others to refuse to stand for the national anthem. But the 83-year-old justice said she “wouldn’t lock a person up for doing it.”

Ginsburg made the comments to Yahoo’s Katie Couric while promoting her book “My Own Words.”

In the interview, Ginsburg steers clear from criticizing presidential candidate Donald Trump but calls the rhetoric from the election cycle “distressing.” She updates her health status, her thoughts on Hillary Clinton and Merrick Garland’s nomination and admits, to an amazed Couric, that she’s never even seen the famous parody of her on “Saturday Night Live.”

Of Kaepernick and others she says, she thinks their actions are “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.

In 1989, before Ginsburg joined the court, the Supreme Court held that the conviction of a man named Gregory Lee Johnson for burning the flag was inconsistent with the First Amendment.

Of the athletes, Ginsburg said, “if they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive. If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.”

Ginsburg’s words were similar to the comments that the late Justice Antonin Scalia made when he was asked about his vote in favor of Johnson in the flag burning case.

“If I were King,” Scalia told CNN’s Piers Morgan in 2012, “I would not allow people to go about burning the American flag. However, we have a First Amendment, which says that the right of free speech shall not be abridged.”

Election

“I have said everything I’m going to say about the current election,” Ginsburg told Couric and refused to discuss her comments last summer when she said she regretted calling Trump a “faker” among other comments to journalists.

She laughed, though, when Couric brought up a tweet by Trump that said Ginsburg’s “mind is shot.” “I’m not on Twitter, and I think I would not have responded,” she said.

She also refused to to speak directly to whether one could ban an entire religious group from entering the country in case that question could come before the court. But she did speak in personal terms about signs she saw as a young girl in the roadside in New Jersey that said “No dogs or Jews allowed.”

“All I can say is I am sensitive to discrimination on any basis because I have experienced that upset,” she told Couric. She said she looked at the sign and said to herself, “I am a Jew, but I’m an American, and Americans are not supposed to say such things.”

Ginsburg said “I’m proud of the US as a country that welcomes all sorts of people.”

She called the rhetoric of the election “distressing” but said she was “hopeful it will go away.”

Clinton and Garland

Calling Garland “eminently qualified,” she reiterated her belief that the Senate should hold a vote but “it’s the Senate’s prerogative.” She added, however, that the court is “handicapped” without nine justices. Asked whether she said Clinton would re-nominate Garland, if she were to win the election, Ginsburg said, “your guess about what she would do is as good as mine.”

She also praised Clinton. “It’s very refreshing to see a woman with the knowledge that she has, with the poise and the command of language,” Ginsburg said.

Retirement?

During the interview, conducted before the start of the term last week, she said, “I’m still as excited about this new term about to start as I was in my first term here.” She said she “won’t be here forever,” but that at her age, she has to ask herself the question each year. “I can tell you this year, I’m fine, I’m OK … what will come next year, I don’t know.”

Ginsburg reminded Couric that she still can do 20 pushups and was dismissive when Couric asked if she performed so-called “girls pushups.”

“Oh no, no, no, the real ones,” Ginsburg responded. She was asked about the infamous “Saturday Night Live” skit, where comedian Kate McKinnon portrays her. She said she hadn’t seen it.  “What is this SNL?” she queried.

Supreme Court judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg: If Trump wins, it’s time to move to New Zealand

Liberals keep threatening that if so-and-so is elected, they would leave the U.S. and move to a foreign country, usually to Europe. Hollyweirdos like Alec Baldwin and Barbra Streisand had made that threat before. The problem is they NEVER actually leave. It’s just all blather and empty talk.

The latest liberal to make that threat is the very liberal Supreme Court “Justice” Ruth Bader Ginsburg — she who once said that legalizing abortion is in the cause of eugenics or, bluntly put, culling the population of black and poor people. In July 2009, in a Sunday New York Times interview, Ginsburg said:

“Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe [v. Wade] was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg falls asleep at Obama' 2015 SOTU

In an interview with The New York Times, last Friday, July 8, 2016, Ginsberg was outspoken about what she thinks of presumptive GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. She moaned:

“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”

She then quoted what her late husband, a tax lawyer who had died in 2010, would have said:

“Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”

Why wait till Trump is elected, Ruth Ginsburg?

Honor your husband’s memory and move to New Zealand already. I’ll even chip in $1 to help pay for your airfare.

But Ginsburg did accomplish something useful with her NYT interview: she’s reminded us why Hillary Clinton can NEVER EVER be elected president.

After the mysterious death of Antonin Scalia, the Supreme Court is now (supposedly) evenly divided 4:4 between conservatives and liberals. But judging by the Court’s recent 5:3 ruling against Texas’ anti-abortion law and 4:3 decision on affirmative action (Fisher v. University of Texas), that even division is an illusion. In both cases, it came down to “Justice” Anthony Kennedy siding with the libs.

Given the ages of Ginsburg (83), Kennedy (80), and Stephen Breyer (78), the next U.S. president not only gets to nominate a replacement for Scalia (the Senate, to its credit, has refused to act on Obama’s nominee, Merrick B. Garland), the next president could well name three other Supreme Court justices as well (to replace Ginsburg, Kennedy and Breyer). That is why Ginsburg is hyperventilating at the prospect of a President Trump.

Oh Goody: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Book Coming Soon

I think I’ll pass on this one.

ginsburg

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Simon & Schuster has landed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s upcoming nonfiction book, My Own Words. The book, which will publish in January, is Ginsburg’s first since becoming a Supreme Court Justice in 1993.

My Own Words will feature a selection of essays and speeches by Ginsburg on wide-ranging topics, including gender equality, the inner workings of the Supreme Court, being Jewish, opera and the value of looking beyond U.S. shores when interpreting the U.S. Constitution.

Throughout her life, Ginsburg has been — and continues to be — a prolific writer and public speaker. The writings will be selected by her and her authorized biographers: Mary Hartnett, an adjunct professor at Georgetown Law; and Wendy W. Williams, a professor emerita at Georgetown Law.

“Simon & Schuster is proud and thrilled to publish My Own Words by Justice Ginsburg in anticipation of her authorized biography,” Mayhew said. “Justice Ginsburg is one of the most important and articulate legal thinkers and interpreters in the country. She is also a witty and engaged writer and speaker, and I am personally delighted to have another opera lover onboard.”
