Forget recusal: Granny Ginsburg should go to New Zealand like she promised

Granny Ginsburg

A number of people are beginning to suggest that given her anti-Trump statements during the 2016 election, Justice Ruth Granny Ginsburg should recuse herself from the Travel Ban case.

Listen, nobody expects Ginsburg, Kagan, Sotomayor or Breyer to rule objectively on the Travel Ban.

Both sides could give their oral arguments in Klingon and those four wouldn’t care. Because they already know how they will rule.

The fact that Granny Ginsburg made a point of being so vocally opposed to Mr. Trump during the campaign is more than enough reason for her to recuse.

But she won’t.

Liberal judges never let conflicts of interest get in the way.

Though, to be honest, I’d much rather Granny Ginsburg do what she said she would do if Trump won election.

Move to New Zealand.

From a July 10, 2016 story in the New York Times:

“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” she said. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”

So unbiased isn’t she?

Yup. I really love how Supreme Court Justices steer clear of politics, don’t you?

Then “smiling ruefully,” Granny Ginsburg said:

”Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”

Well there’s the door!

Take your ugly scarves, your Liberal agenda and hit the bricks, you wine-soaked bag of bones.

Sing it with me:

“So she loaded up the truck and she moved to Dunedin…
…New Zealand that is.”

This same New York Times writer seems to have delighted in the fact that Granny Ginsburg didn’t let her role on the Supreme Court get in the way of her attacking then-candidate Trump.

In fact, it’s the first thing he mentions:

Unless they have a book to sell, Supreme Court justices rarely give interviews. Even then, they diligently avoid political topics. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg takes a different approach.
These days, she is making no secret of what she thinks of a certain presidential candidate.

Hell, even his headline gives it away: “Ruth Bader Ginsburg, No Fan of Donald Trump, Critiques Latest Term.”


Let’s be honest. Only the most brain-addled nitwit would think this decrepit old hag will leave politics aside and do her job.

So if she won’t recuse herself, maybe while she’s napping, someone should bundle her up and put her on the first Air New Zealand flight to Auckland.

    Sorry, but we don’t want her down in the Land of the Long White Cloud. Keep her, please!

      Just stick her in a corner with a bottle of wine. She’ll snooze away quietly. Which, come to think of it, is precisely what she does on the Supreme Court. At least if she does it in NZ, you won’t lose any of your liberties.
