Rumors Have Been Swirling About Clarence Thomas…Now We Know The TRUTH!
By Kathy Shaidle|June 21, 2016

“A high-tech lynching”: Americans of a certain age will never forget the shameful, sickening circus surrounding the appointment of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court.

Desperate to keep a conservative off the bench, liberals launched a sexually charged, nationally televised smear campaign against the African-American jurist. It was a new low in American political discourse from which, in many ways, society never recovered.

Ever since, liberals have been praying for Thomas to step down, but according to his wife, the 80-year-old justice isn’t planning to retire any time soon, rumors to the contrary.

On Facebook, Ginni Thomas wrote:

“For all those who are contacting me about the possibility of my husband retiring, I say — unsubscribe from those false news sources and carry on with your busy lives. IT. IS. BOGUS!”

The Washington Examiner weighed in:

That would be good news for conservatives because his retirement would have a substantial impact on control of the court. The next president is expected to immediately replace the seat opened by the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, providing a one-vote edge in the court that is currently divided 4-4.

Should Thomas leave, that slight majority would continue if Donald Trump becomes president. If it’s Hillary Clinton, then she would get the chance to flip two Republican seats, giving the liberals a 6-3 majority.

And, conservatives fear, that could switch to a 7-2 majority if Republican Justice Anthony Kennedy, already a swing vote, retires. He will be 80 next year.

We recently reported that if Clinton wins the presidency, her majority liberal court could stay in power at least until 2050.
