Remember, in grade school, learning about the three main branches of government (executive, legislative and judicial), stressing the absolute independent, unbiased and non-political character of the third?
Then, you grew up, left school and entered the real world. This is where you experienced how politics permeate everything and that courts are tools of the activist and special agenda crowd.
Interested in a good example of judicial activism thrown right into the face of the American people?
The Hill reports:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared to be wearing her infamous dissent jabot on the bench Wednesday morning.
The strange thing, Court wasn’t issuing any opinions that morning, and Ginsburg usually wears the jabot only when serving as the official issuer of dissenting opinion.
You can do the math, but we think she was shaking her head at the national populist movement.
Ginsburg’s been an outspoken opponent of Trump, telling The New York Times this past July she couldn’t “imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president.”
The Hill reported further: “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be – I don’t even want to contemplate that.”
In that same article, she also said that her husband, Martin Ginsburg, would regard a Trump win as an opportune time “to move to New Zealand.”
Rather than moving, seems that Ginsburg has taken a more convenient, softer – albeit subtle – approach to expressing her views of Trump’s win.
The [dissent jabot donned Wednesday] is being widely interpreted as a repudiation of Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election a night earlier.
