House Republicans Demand Ginsburg Recuse Herself From Travel Ban Case

“You are bound by law..."

Following a decision Monday by the Supreme Court to allow portions of President Donald Trump’s travel ban to be enacted until the justices review the case in its entirety this fall, a number of prominent Republicans have called for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to recuse herself from the case.

Fifty-eight House Republicans signed a letter to Ginsburg calling attention to her “public criticism of Donald Trump during the campaign,” as well as the denunciation she has received in the media for her “conduct.”

In a July 2016 editorial, The New York Times took Ginsburg to task for her statements, noting that by disparaging Trump she was only “call(ing) her own commitment to impartiality into question.”

The justice later apologized for her comments, though the letter House Republicans sent cited both The Times’ editorial and another piece criticizing her in The Washington Post.

Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot - resign!

Regarding the travel ban case, the legislators pointed out that “(T)he case places the personal credibility of President Trump directly at issue.”

Signed this letter to Justice Ginsburg demanding her recusal from cases involving the Trump Admin due to her previous comments #SCOTUS

Justice Ginsburg has demonstrated an anti-Trump bias and her actions have caused her impartiality to be in question.

lower court concluded that the Trump administration had not been honest about its true motives for implementing the ban on immigration from terror-prone nations. Using allegedly anti-Muslim statements made by the president on the campaign trail, the court argued that the ban was rooted in discrimination, not a desire to enhance national security.

Given the case’s connection to the president’s campaign statements, which Ginsburg herself has criticized, the legislators therefore believe it would be unethical and perhaps even illegal for her to not recuse herself.

“You are bound by law to recuse yourself from participation in this case,” the letter continued.

“There is no doubt that your impartiality can be reasonably questioned; indeed, it would be unreasonable not to question your impartiality. Your participation in Trump v. International Refugee Assistance Project would violate the law and undermine the credibility of the Supreme Court of the United States.”

By Tuesday the justice had not responded to the letter.

She is an activist rather than a jurist, and too stupid to know the difference.

She should actually be impeached, but wouldn't that take some b*lls?

How "active" can she be when she falls asleep while they're taking photos?

Well, then. How about calling her an "opinionist" or "delusionalist" or "wrong-headed" or "unconstitutional"?

Well, the next 3 are opinion, the last is a fact. And so it is.

And, therefore, the conclusion SHOULD be "impeachable".

Part of the problem is that she isn't aging well. Though a perpetual Left Winger, she's become even more irrational since live TV cameras caught her napping at a State of the Union address.  

Obviously, Ginsberg needs to step down and call it a day, but she probably won't.  You may recall Barack Obama's brassy suggestion in 2012 that a second term was needed to fill upcoming SCOTUS appointments.  At the time, not one Justice had even hinted at retirement.  Analysts believed his remarks to be a message to Ginsburg, but her reply wasn't the sugar Obama expected: "I'm not going anywhere."  






Start a lawsuit... now... immediately.  Get Jay Sekulow to file an emergency injunction, to have Justice Ginsberg recused.  If she doesn't recuse herself, and the lower court refuses to act... get the House to start Impeachment ... like, yesterday.  It is time to set an example, America is no longer going to put up with unethical and unlawful conduct from its JUDGES.

Someone inform the President or Jay Sekulow, his personal counsel... of this possible course of action. Get the ball rolling a case to recuse filed with the DC Circut and schedule a meeting with the Speaker of the House to investigate possible impeachment.  This is an opportunity to reset the ethical standards for the entire Judiciary.  Don't miss this chance.

It would also put the White House in control of the national political narrative... and create a base from which to continue the pursuit of corruption in DC... Thus, providing future opportunities to set the National narrative.

The root of the problem is the fact, the cold, hard, distasteful fact, that the pool from which the people chosen to serve, for life, on the Supreme Court is contaminated, and those making and approving the choices are doing so for political purpose rather than advancing the Rule of Law which is meant to be far above the decadence of pursuing power and control.

If you pull a toad from the pool, you will have a toad on the court.  The court doesn't make the animal, the animal makes the court.

Justice is only for those who can afford it. It is a commodity, like a car or a fine home. It can be bought, and it does have a price.

Ginsberg is what she is. She will go away when she dies. 

And then,  she will be replaced.  From the same pool.

Drain the pool and refill it with ethical judges... There is nothing in the Constitution requiring a Supreme Court Justice to be a lawyer... nothing.  Appoint well educated, MORAL Citizens, to be our judges and get rid of the lawyers. Hang them, as Shakespear suggested in Henry VI.

The law should never be so complex that it can not be understood by the individuals expected to obey it.  Lawyers have crafted the laws to ensure they are necessary to its application... that must stop.

For a people to consent unto the law it must be understood... consent implies understanding and the laws in America are no longer crafted so the common man may comprehend them.  In fact, lawyers and judges can't agree on what much of the law states.  Hence, the need for so much litigation in America. 

When Justice Ginsberg meets her judge in heaven ... she will be judged not on her academic or judicial prowess alone... it will be on her position with God and His Word... the ultimate law.  She needs to be thinking about that and acting accordingly.

Wouldn't that be a great antidote to the rule by tyranny—to turn it ALL upside down with common law, logic, morality, consistency, equality under the law, responsibility to all——oh, wow.

Either she's sleeping or she has really bad posture...




California Democrat Predicts
‘Widespread Civil Unrest’
If Trump Fires Mueller

California Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu predicted Monday there will be “widespread civil unrest” if President Donald Trump fires special counsel Robert Mueller.

“If the president does go ahead and fire Robert Mueller, we would have people take to the streets,” Lieu told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

“I believe there would be widespread civil unrest because Americans believe the rule of law is paramount.”

“You think there would be widespread civil unrest?” Hayes asked.

“I do. I think you’re going have protests and marches and rallies and sit-ins. I believe Americans would not stand for the firing of Robert Mueller,” Lieu replied.

Trump’s tweets last week have fueled speculation he plans to get rid of Mueller, who was appointed May 2017 to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump called the Mueller probe a “witch hunt,” which “should never have been started.” 

The Fake News is beside themselves that McCabe was caught, called out and fired. How many hundreds of thousands of dollars was given to wife’s campaign by Crooked H friend, Terry M, who was also under investigation? How many lies? How many leaks? Comey knew it all, and much more!


Trump lawyer John Dowd believes the Mueller investigation should come to an end, he said over St. Patrick’s Day weekend, which added fuel to the fire.

White House special counsel Ty Cobb issued a statement on Sunday, denying Trump plans to fire Mueller.

Trump would either have to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions or fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in order to shut down the Mueller investigation.

Rosenstein serves as acting attorney general for the Russia investigation because Sessions recused himself from the matter due to his involvement with the Trump campaign.

Sessions’ and/or Rosenstein’s replacements could shut down the Mueller investigation if the two were forced out of their positions.
