Justice Ginsburg: We Need
An All-Female Supreme Court

Cybercast News Service, by Melanie Hunter

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/26/2012 1:23:19 PM

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says there will be enough women on the Supreme Court when all nine justices are female. “So now the perception is, yes, women are here to stay. And when I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court]? And I say when there are nine, people are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that,” she said. Ginsburg made the remark at the 10th Circuit Bench & Bar Conference that was held at the University of Colorado in Boulder in October.

Comments:
Be careful what you wish for, Ruth. In today´s 0bama World, you may be replaced for being a "old white woman," by some younger person of color and sexual preference.

The replacement for Ginsburg will most likely be King Hussein´s next supreme court pick. He´s gonna have a hard time finding another as clueless and anti-American as this dried up prune, but I´m sure he´ll come close.

I´m a female, and sadly I know many many females who make decisions based on emotion, while men decide based on logic.
Imagine women who are menopausal, or have PMS having to agree on something!
Oh for the times when people were chosen based on their ability!

The real scary part is that this "mind" has a key role in what this country will see as constitutional in the future. This comment together with her comments about not using our constitution as a model say so much about her thinking and how her decisions have nothing to do with the constitution and how they have to do with her liberal/socialist philosophy

What we need, is for "Just-Us" Ginsberg to be OFF the Supreme Court.

Unfortunately, whoever replaces her will be equally as one-sided and bigoted so long as the Republicans will not effectively fillibuster EVERY nominee that Bronco Bama offers. There would be no effective change in most of the outcomes if only eight Justices were sitting on the Supreme Court bench.

But a hung court is almost as good as a win for those not of the "phony liberal" persuasion.

Her status as a terminal moron alone should have gotten her impeached and removed. Alas....

That she´s an America-hater, is contemptuous of the Constitution [were she honest on that account, she´d have resigned], and sexist [she clearly believes women are superior to men].

OK, Ruthie -- from now on, you´d better: refuse to fly with a male pilot; refuse help from male EMS techs; throw out all male-invented devices you use or own; travel on streets or in vehicles built primarily by men; find some gals to rip out the air conditioning in your home [can´t be honoring Willis Carrier, can we?]; no use of electricity [Franklin; Tesla; Edison; Westinghouse; etc.]; nothing made of steel [Andrew Carnegie]; can´t use paper [that might be awkward]; and so on.

Oh -- ditch your glasses. That evil male Benjamin Franklin, don´cha know.

Just when you thought we were entering an age of egalitarianism, an extreme leftist reveals their true intent, a future of revanchism based on gender, and most likely also race, ethnicity, orientation, etc.

The funny thing is, even if women occupied all of the highest positions in society, they would still expect to find a mate of higher status, which would be an ever-dwindling pool under those circumstances.

Bottom line, she should be impeached over this sexist comment if that is possible.

White House Says Iran’s
U.N. Diplomat ‘Not Viable’
New York Times, by Rick Gladstone & Thomas Erdbrink    Original Article

The Obama administration intensified its objections on Tuesday to Iran’s nomination for United Nations ambassador, a former translator whose role in 1979-81 Tehran hostage crisis has touched American political nerves, asserting that the choice was “not viable” in what seemed as close as possible to ruling it out. The assertion, made by the White House press secretary, Jay Carney, came hours after the Senate voted unanimously on Monday night on a bipartisan measure that would bar the nominee, Hamid Aboutalebi, from taking the United Nations post by denying him a visa. House passage of the measure was considered a near

President Barack Obama’s aunt, Zeituni Onyango, who fought deportation and was granted asylum in the United States, died Monday. Onyango, 61, died Monday at a rehab hospital after being treated for cancer and respiratory illness, her immigration lawyer said. She was born in Kenya and granted asylum in the United States in 2010. Her first asylum request, however, was denied in 2002 and she was ordered to leave the country in 2004, but she continued to live in Boston public housing, reports WCVB Boston. Her situation was made public days before Obama was elected in November 2008. Obama said at the time he did not know his aunt was

Republicans are increasingly looking at 2014 as a golden opportunity for the party to retake the Senate. Donors are pouring tens of millions of dollars into races across the country, the Republican National Committee is doubling down on investments in campaign technology, and outside groups are investing heavily in an all-out bid to regain the majority for the first time since 2007.

The tiny padlock next to web addresses that promised to protect our most sensitive information — passwords, stored files, bank details, even Social Security numbers — is broken. A flaw has been discovered in one of the Internet’s key encryption methods, potentially forcing a wide swath of websites to swap out the virtual keys that generate private connections between the sites and their customers. (Snip) Researchers are calling the bug “Heartbleed” because it affects the “heartbeat” portion of the OpenSSL protocol, which pings messages back and forth. It can and has been exploited by attackers.

Exactly one year ago it appeared as though Lawrence Hart was a whistleblower threatening to expose wrongdoing in the city of Dallas’ federally funded Project Reconnect program, which helps nonviolent ex-offenders get jobs, job training and, in some instances, housing. Today, the former city of Dallas caseworker appeared in federal court to plead guilty to three counts of criminal wrongdoing and is now facing decades behind bars himself. According to court documents, Hart has pleaded guilty to lying to officials from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, living in Project Reconnect housing intended for program

‘Light’ on the surface of Mars
gives NASA a new mystery solve

NASA has a new Mars mystery on its hands thanks to one of its rovers — artificial light. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., received images from the Red Planet last week that seem to contain artificial light emanating from the ground, the Houston Chronicle reported. In February, NASA had the “jelly doughnut” rock mystery to solve, which turned out to simply be the underside of a stone kicked up by the Opportunity rover’s wheels. The agency may still be stumped with the current image, as it has not yet released a statement regarding the light. That hasn’t stopped individuals from coming to conclusions that would

Members of Congress love charts. And on Tuesday afternoon, while debating a bill that would require the Congressional Budget Office to stop assuming annual increases in discretionary spending due to inflation, two members of the House budget committee fell deep down a chart-created rabbit hole. (Snip) But Maryland Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen came back at Woodall -- with hamburger charts, no less. In the first chart, Van Hollen noted that, thanks to inflation, the price of a Big Mac has increased from $2.71 in 2004 to $4.62 in 2014."That´s not Washington math, it´s reality based math!" Van Hollen declared.

Radical new skin cancer treatment

A radical new form of cancer treatment that relies on the body’s natural “killer cells” to attack tumours has proved a success in the first clinical trials on patients suffering from advanced skin cancer, scientists have said. The immune-therapy is based on a biologically designed drug that binds tumour cells to the killer T-cells of the immune system, causing the cancer cells to self-destruct. Scientists hope that the approach can be adapted for a wide range of other tumours, such as prostate, lung and ovarian cancers. Results of the phase 1 clinical trial designed to test the drug’s safety on 31 patients with advanced melanoma –

Children in Iraq could be legally married before the age of nine under sweeping legislation tabled on Tuesday that introduces new religious restrictions on women´s rights. As almost its last act before elections at the end of the month, the Iraqi parliament looks likely to pass new marital rules for its majority Shia community with a draft law criticised by human rights activists as "legalised inquality" The legislation has been approved by the governing coalition in an effort to attract support from Shia Muslims in the April 30 vote. Current Iraqi law sets the legal age for marriage at 18 without parental approval and states girls as young as 15 can

Twitter has unveiled a redesign of its user interface that appears to be based heavily on Facebook´s profile pages. The new web profile lets users upload a larger profile photo, customise their header (in a similar way to Facebook´s ´cover photo´), and show off tweets that have received the most engagement with followers. They can also ´pin´ one of their tweets to the top of their page, to give followers an idea of who they are and what they´re interested in, and filter other users´ timelines to show only the tweets they are interested in. The new profile setup is available today to a small group of users, and will roll out to all users in the

A 13-year-old girl in New York believes she was suspended from school last week after she was reprimanded for telling several students that they had freedom to opt out of Common Core testing. Seirra Olivero, an eighth-grader at Orange-Ulster BOCES in Goshen, was suspended for two days for insubordination, the Times Herald-Record reported. Seirra filed a complaint under the state’s Dignity for All Students Act, which said that on Tuesday, the day of the English test, she told several students over the course of the day that they didn’t have to take the test if they didn’t want to. In one instance, a teacher allegedly overheard and told her

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by
