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.

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.

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.”
