Supreme Court´s Ginsburg vows
to resist pressure to retire

Reuters, by Joan Biskupic

Original Article

WASHINGTON — At age 80, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, leader of the Supreme Court´s liberal wing, says she is in excellent health, even lifting weights despite having cracked a pair of ribs again, and plans to stay several more years on the bench. In a Reuters interview late on Tuesday, she vowed to resist any pressure to retire that might come from liberals who want to ensure that Democratic President Barack Obama can pick her successor before the November 2016 presidential election. Ginsburg said she had fallen in the bathroom of her home in early May, sustaining the same injury

Hang in there Ruthie. As bad as you are our "Constitutional Law Professor" president will try to install someone worse.

Wouldn´t be cool if Zippy was denied a single SCOTUS appointment?

The Left would howl with despair and outrage.

You go, girl!

I´m for age limits and/or one fixed term of perhaps 12 years for judges. And not against limits for some other offices.

A few very old people will remain able and sensible but face facts, most will not. Courts do not exist so the oldest people can feel good about themselves.

Repeat the above substituting "teenagers" and you will see what I mean. Some teenagers would do very well but it isn´t the way to bet.

The framers of the Constitution could not foresee average lifespans that would allow large numbers of people to hold a significant office or position for decade after decade after decade.

I suspect that now that Ms. Justice Ginsburg has worked with the two Obama appointees, she realizes what judicial and intellectual lightweights they are. And in spite of being ultra-liberal herself, she loves the Court enough that she has resolved to deny Zero the chance to appoint another such vacuosity to the institution.

#11, Sotomayor is not an intellectual lightweight. She graduated first in her undergraduate class at Princeton, had legal experience, including a seat on the 3rd circuit. I disagree with just about every decision she makes, but...

Elena Kagan, on the other hand, is a fraud, and the least qualified member of the court, ever. She never, ever practiced law, never stepped foot into a courtroom until barack appointed her as the least qualified solicitor general, ever. She was named dean of the Harvard Law School because it was time for Harvard Law to have someone of her , ah, persuasion.
Let´s hope the republicans regain the senate in 2014, and impeach and remove kagan for lying at her senate confirmation hearing, when she said she never, as solicitor general, had anything to do with obamacare. The records will indicate otherwise. In fact, if she, as solicitor general had nothing to do with obamacare, that would be legal malpractice.

Iran has signed a deal to sell Iraq arms and ammunition worth £117 million in a move that would break a UN embargo on weapons sales by Tehran. The agreement was reached at the end of November, documents showed, just weeks after Iraq’s prime minister Nouri al-Maliki returned from Washington, where he lobbied the Obama administration for extra weapons to fight al-Qaeda-linked militants.

WASHINGTON — A new study reveals that nearly 33,000 jobs have been impacted due to the Affordable Care Act’s medical device excise tax. The report comes from the Advanced Medical Technology Association following an online survey of member companies last year. “According to the report, the tax has led to employment reductions of approximately 14,000 industry workers and foregone hiring of 19,000 workers,” the study stated. “The total job impact of the tax on industry employment was approximately 33,000.” Stephen J.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A former and possibly future first daughter came to Kansas City on Monday to launch an effort to honor women. Chelsea Clinton spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, sharing her passion for efforts that help boost women and girls. "How far have women come, and how far do we have to go?" she said. She told the audience that those questions are less philosophical than practical. She said she buries herself in the world of the Clinton Foundation to make sure she's doing her part. Another reason she was in Kansas City is to help establish the Starr Women's Hall of Fame,

Global Warming ‘Hiatus’ Caused By

Since 1998, the average rate of Earth’s rising global surface temperature has relaxed, much to the chagrin of climate scientists whose climate-model predictions told a different story. Now, researchers say they’ve found the cause of Earth’s global warming “hiatus.” According to a new study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, volcanoes are the reason the average rate of warming dropped from .31 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1970 and 1998 to .072 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1998 and 2012. This “muted surface warming” was the result of a series of 17 small volcanic eruptions, beginning in 2000, that spewed

We´ve paid plenty of attention here at KCET to the problems caused for desert tortoises when their habitat is replaced with renewable energy facilities. But now one scientist is saying that big solar facilities in the Mojave could seal the desert tortoise´s fate in a way you might not expect. According to Barry Sinervo, an evolutionary biologist at the University of California Santa Cruz, current solar projects in the California desert intended to slow global warming, including two approved just last week by the Interior Department, could actually make the desert too hot for tortoises to survive past the end of

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
