Supreme Court nominations are the biggest fights in American politics.
A President can shape the direction of the country for generations based on their selections to sit on the bench.
And now Ruth Bader Ginsberg just dropped this massive hint about the Supreme Court’s future.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg recently addressed a judicial conference ahead of the Supreme Court handing down its final decisions of the current term.
The court always saves the most high profile cases for last, so Supreme Court observers closely monitored her remarks for any hint the direction the court might take in the most controversial cases yet to be decided.
Ginsberg did – in fact – offer clues about the direction the Supreme Court would talk.
And what she said was music to the ears of Trump supporters.
First, Ginsberg said Brett Kavanaugh replacing Anthony Kennedy might be the most consequential appointment of her lifetime.
“Justice Kennedy announced his retirement,” Ginsberg told the crowd. “It was, I would say, the event of greatest consequence for the current term, and perhaps for many terms ahead.”
Kennedy was a supporter of both abortion and homosexual rights.
He authored the controversial decisions reaffirming Roe v. Wade and imposing homosexual marriage on America.
Next term, the Supreme Court is set to take up cases concerning if federal anti-discrimination law protects gender identity and sexual orientation.
The court also is on a collision course with Roe based on the number of states passing pro-Life legislation.
Ginsberg’s comments were taken as a hint that Kavanaugh is set to swing the court in a decidedly conservative direction on these issues.
Finally, Ginsberg addressed the two most significant unresolved cases – the matter of the Trump administration, including a citizenship question on the census and two cases involving so-called “partisan gerrymandering.”
Ginsberg warned the attendees that these cases would likely split along five to four lines.
Ginsberg relayed the fact that just ten cases were decided by that narrow majority, but that she did not expect that to continue.
“Given the number of most-watched cases still unannounced,” Ginsberg stated, “I cannot predict that the relatively low sharp divisions ratio will hold.”
That – as well as her comments about Kavanaugh – led many liberals to suspect they will be on the losing end of the census and gerrymandering cases.
Those would be two big blows to the left.
Democrats want illegal aliens counted in the census to increase the populations in Democrat-leaning states, so they gain more Congressional seats.
And liberal activists want the Supreme Court to strike down so-called “partisan gerrymandering” because they want courts or “independent commissions” – which are always packed with leftists – to impose congressional and state legislative district maps that tilt elections toward the Democrats.
But based on Ginsberg’s speech, those hopes appear to be going down in flames.
