How could this be allowed to happen in America? Because judges like Ruth Bader Ginsburg don't believe in the concepts of self-government and natural law embedded in the Constitution that our Founding Fathers gave us. They ignore the supreme law of the land, and in those cases where they do cite it, it is for the purpose of using it against us contrary to its original intent. In her interview she displays her disdain for the Constitution of the United States which she was sworn to uphold, but has done everything in her power to dismantle. Add to this her ignorance that the Egyptian uprising had anything to do with freedom, and will likely result in Shariah law that will brutally subjugate women and Christians. For these reasons she should be impeached. This is the proper remedy for those who would violate their oath to support and defend the Constitution, and Americans should have been in the streets demanding this remedy from the very first court case in which judges departed from this standard. We didn't initiate the moral and spiritual decay that brought this nation to the brink the past five decades, but we have allowed it to happen by our inaction. One reason is that Americans have been rightly frustrated by what they feel is a helplessness to do anything about a government over which they have no control. We need to get over the feeling of helplessness. We are a self-governing nation of the people, by the people, and for the people, and all government exists by our consent. Now is the time to reclaim it or lose it. We must demand that those we have elected, or will elect, and their appointees, be faithful to their oath of office, and if not, then they must be removed. Pick up the phone, send an e-mail, get involved in your local tea party, and stop being intimidated by the socialist media. I'm amazed at how many times our elected officials respond to a genuine public outcry. We are the majority. It is our nation, our tax dollars, our children's future.
Do I expect the House to draw up articles of impeachment against Justice Ginsburg? Not anymore than I would expect the Senate to filibuster any such future nominee to the Court. While Democrats have long forsaken the Constitutional restraints upon our government, Republicans have been complicit in allowing it to happen. This is why we must demand loud and clear that our elected officials refuse to appoint such activists to the courts, and hold them accountable if they don't. Make it the number one issue in each election. After all, we didn't bring this nation to the brink, for the most part, by acts of state and federal legislatures. We got this way because of irrational and unjust judicial tyranny. Demand an end to it, and don't be silenced.
I agree with you 100%, and have been saying the same thing for decades now... I have discovered that both democrats and republicans want the same thing... larger government and the power that goes with it at all costs. The only way to get this done, unfortunately, is with another political party....there are those that say we can overtake the republican party and right the listing ship... well, this election cycle is proving that this line of thinking is at best fantasy, at worst being complicit in the destruction of our way of life... If we need to take over another established party, the closest thing is the libertarian party.... the nut job libertarians are in the minority there ( much like conservatives are the minority in the republican party )..... I for one will no longer support those that wish to tear down the consitution, and my way of life.
I heard this on Michael Savage the other day. She was saying that Egypt should use South Africa’s constitution instead of the United States’.
A thoughtful, timely and cogent piece. Nice work and thanks for sharing.
Wait until obama is gone. He would just replace her with someone worse and with longer life expectancy.
It will be a long time before we are freed from the clutches of Ruth Baader-Meinhoff and the rest of the Black-Robed Priests.
Write in Palin and prepare for war.
Nice work, setourchildrenfree. Very well stated.
Justice Ginsburg betrays a fundamental ignorance of the primary function of our Constitution in that her remarks demonstrate she does not acknowledge our Constitution circumscribes the powers of government rather than limiting the rights of its citizens.
We must think she knows better.
Welcome to Free Republic.
Justice Ginsburg is not responsible for the decline in American jurisprudence; she is just the most visible manifestation in recent history.
It began with the liberal justices appointed by Roosevelt and others that approved school busing, abolished prayer in school, and more. Ginsburg wasn't on the Supreme Court when the worst travesty, Roe v Wade, was ruled upon in 1973. Seven justices voted that because of the "penumbras and emanations" in the Constitution, there was an implied right to privacy, and therefore abortion as a Constitutional right. These are well-known justices: Burger, Brenna, Stewart, and Douglas.
Impeaching Ginsburg is not an option; the trial in a GOP Senate would be so intensely political that no good could come out of it. However, a campaign in the media, that her opinions violate her oath to "uphold the Constitution of the United States" might be enough to force her to crawl back into her cave and stop being so visibly leftist.
Ginsburg is of that generation of secular Jewish Americans who feels that the purpose of the judiciary is the romantic application of common sense to the interpretation of the law. That is why they have no compunction legislating from the bench. Sure, they took that dumb oath to "uphold the Constitution" but after all, the oath is just routine, right? Also, Ginsburg's generation of secular Jews was raised in the socialist and communist milieu of New York City in the 1930s, where leftist notions were discussed over the dinner table with parents who emigrated from Russia and Germany, the intellectual source of socialism and communism.
Don't get me wrong -- I can't stand Ginburg's opinions. But impeachment would be a very, very bad decision unless there is a national consensus, not just a Republican consensus, that she has to go. And such a consensus would only happen if there was a national crisis that resulted from one of her decisions.
What else would you expect from a jackass?
These freaks hold our Country in contempt.
