Irrespective of how one feels about Donald Trump, what we just saw in the U.S. is an outrage, and a disgrace for the U.S. Supreme Court.
A U.S. Supreme Court judge has publicly voiced her opinion about Donald Trump, a candidate for the U.S. presidency, and urged U.S. voters not to vote for him. Trump (rightfully) reacted in outrage, as it is one of the oldest traditions of the Western legal system that the judiciary should not (and must not) engage in such public comments — as it (rightfully) calls into question their independence/impartiality.
This illustrates two things. It illustrates how a large chunk of the U.S. Establishment is still reacting in a rabid (and unbalanced) manner with respect to the Trump candidacy. This is despite the fact that he has an Establishment (Goldman Sachs) Stooge as his money-man. And an Establishment Stooge (“Washington insider”) has now taken over his campaign.
The other point that is illustrated here is the total corruption of the U.S. judiciary — especially its disgraceful (and totally politicized) Supreme Court. As bad as things are in Canada, we would never see a Canadian Supreme Court judge behaving in such a disgraceful and entirely inappropriate manner. Indeed, we would not see such disgraceful behavior anywhere else in the Corrupt West.
Ginsburg should resign. It is the only gesture which would restore a tiny vestige of credibility with respect to the U.S. Supreme Court. Judges are supposed to be totally apolitical. Of course this has never been a reality with the U.S.’s highly politicized judiciary — but they should at least pretend to be politically neutral.
Responding to criticism, Trump calls on Justice Ginsburg to resign
“Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me,” Trump said in a Twitter post. “Her mind is shot – resign!”
The New York billionaire chided Ginsburg, 83, for criticizing him this week and expressing concern for the country’s future if he is elected in November.
Trump said it was inappropriate for Supreme Court justices to weigh in on political campaigns. He told the New York Times on Tuesday that he thought it was a disgrace to the court and that Ginsburg should apologize to her colleagues on the bench…
