In this flashback video which takes us back to 2012, current supreme court justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg trashes the United States Constitution: the very document that gave her a job and the “right” to “rule.” She’s talking about what the Egyptian people should expect when setting up a new government.
As the Trump administration prepares to nominate a new justice to the U.S. Supreme Court, liberals are probably wishing for nothing more than someone in the mold of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, writes The Conservative Tribune. Ginsburg was appointed by Bill Clinton and took her oath to uphold the US Constitution (she says is outdated) on August 10, 1993.
“I would not look to the U.S. Constitution if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012. I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, had an independent judiciary,” Ginsberg says.
Ginsberg ironically says she’s “operating under a very old Constitution,” yet she’s making decisions about laws and rules as an 85-year-old. As if the age of a document or a person is somehow important when it comes to what rights other humans outside of government have or what laws they should be subjected to based on opinions.
In remarks she made during a 2012 visit to Cairo University in Egypt, which had just undergone major changes from the Arab Spring revolution and the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak, Ginsburg did offer praise for the U.S. Constitution, but thought that the Egyptians should look elsewhere when they draft a new document instituting a ruling class that will lord over others, according to Fox News.
“It is a very inspiring time – that you have overthrown a dictator, and that you are striving to achieve a genuine democracy. So I think people in the United States are hoping that this transition will work and that there will genuinely be a government of, by, and for the people,” she said, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute.
How old is this traitor? 100? She’ll probably, hopefully die soon so she to can be replaced with someone that loves our country.
Ginsberg’s statement is shocking. It is treasonous. Absolutely, it is appalling.
How can a person be considered an American, let alone qualified to interpret American Law when holding our primary instrument of the Law in contempt.
I hold Ms. Ginsberg in contempt of Court, and sentence her to life without her title of “Judge”. Hell, take away her license to practice Law. She is a traitor. It’s one thing to hold such a view privately, but to speak with a foreign dignitary, openly rejecting our Constitution; it’s unconscionable.
Menzo and B, nothing surprises me about Ginsberg. I wish I could slap that choo bitch silly.
She’s not an American , she’s a Jew.
This reminds me, why do we allow people to stay on for life. Retire them at 65 years old or when they’ve served thirty years. Whichever comes first.
South Africa would be quite the example to follow today for the United States, wouldn’t it?
President Trump has SOLD US OUT with this Neo-con, One World, Supreme Court Nomination!
We were able to get a conservative Judge to replace a conservative Judge but now they replace a moderate swing Judge with a moderate swing Judge. So that nothing changes and are rights are stripped away by continual 5-4 decisions.
Trump added this expletives name to the list of 25 he submitted before being elected. HE LIED THAT HE WOULD ONLY NOMINATE JUSTICES FROM THAT LIST.
Trump is just another expletive politician. As long as they get tax cuts for the rich they are happy!!
Great post! I agree Justice but at least half of the posters here are too brainwashed to see that. They believe everything Trump, a known pathological liar, says and does. He’s already thrown us under the bus.
They even believe that the asylum seekers from the Northern Triangle in Central America fleeing extreme violence entered the U.S. illegally when they didn’t. Seeking asylum is not illegal and they did not enter illegally. Because Trump said they entered illegally so therefore they did. Whatever he says is gospel. They can’t think for themselves. They just follow and agree with whatever he says.
So far he hasn’t locked her up, no border wall, you know the rest. Meanwhile we are housing and feeding all of these refugee families who fled violence in Central America including 3,000 of their children. Locking all of them up like rabid animals is inhumane. And feeding them 3 meals a day providing showers and bedding and clothing and transporting them all over the country is costing money. Guess whose paying for all that? So much for his immigration policy.
Actually I think Trump knows his first pick will not be seated. The opposition will be supercharged to foil the nomination So he put someone out to be cannon fodder. By the time they are done the left will have used every bit of their bag of tricks. And exhausted themselves. Then the actual desired pick will have smooth sailing. Remember Trump plays chess to everyone elses checkers.
Right to rule….. my foot.
They don’t have any right or authority to rule.
Congress was looking for a woman’s face to put on a currency. Let’s hope they don’t choose her!
Brian, I agree. But if it’s any consolation, at this point, at least we know it won’t be Hitlery.
Ginsburg was treated for aggressive cancer many years ago when she was old. Now she’s ancient and cancer-free. I can’t believe she survived that and is still here with us today. I guess it’s true, evil never dies.
Well we can’t expect too much from her. After all she was General Council for the ACLU.
The best we can hope for is that she will be the reason for Trump to get to pick his third Justice.
“you are striving to achieve a genuine democracy.”
She is talking about Egypt in reference to America.
The United States was set up as A Constitutional Republic.
Ginsberg SHOULD know better.
please read up on it
Alexander Hamilton asserted that “We are now forming a Republican form of government. Real liberty is not found in the extremes of democracy, but in moderate governments. If we incline too much to democracy we shall soon shoot into a monarchy, or some other form of a dictatorship.”4 Hamilton, in the last letter he ever wrote, warned that “our real disease is DEMOCRACY.”
Thomas Jefferson declared: “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.”
Benjamin Franklin had similar concerns of a democracy when he warned that “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!” After the Constitutional Convention was concluded, in 1787, a bystander inquired of Franklin: “Well, Doctor, what have we got�a Republic or a Monarchy?” Franklin replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”
John Adams, our second president, wrote: “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself.”
James Madison, the father of the Constitution wrote in Federalist Paper No. 10 that pure democracies “have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”
This is grounds for impeachment, she pledged an oath to the US constitution.
