US Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg: Unfit to serve

As Egyptian officials prepare to prosecute 19 American democracy and rights workers, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 79, visited Cairo University. During an interview on Al- Hayat television, she suggested Egyptian revolutionaries not use the  U.S. Constitution as a model as they arrange to write a new Constitution.

“I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012,” she said.

“I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, have an independent judiciary. It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done.”

She encouraged them to enjoy the opportunity to participate in the “exceptional transitional period to a real democratic state.”

She then pointed not only to South Africa’s Constitution, but to Canada’s 1982 Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the European Convention on Human Rights. “Why not take advantage of what is else there in the world? I’m a very strong believer in listening and learning from others,” Ginsburg added.

Justice Ginsburg’s comments are not foreign to her overall philosophy. She has previously stated that she weighs foreign law as well as U.S. law when forming a legal opinion.

    Ruth (BADder) Ginsburg is a former ACLU lawyer who was appointed to the US Supreme Court by prolific liar and disbarred lawyer Bill Clinton. What do you expect?

  2. Chad Palmer says:

    I am done with people who cut down our Constitution to build themselves up! It’s time to get more vocal where we live, get on the street in your precinct and go to every house and remind them about how great our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Then ask for a donation of $5 or more to the AZGOP.

    If everyone who reads this gets out into their communities we will raise over a million$ this year. Fyi, dress up a suit and tie for the men and a nice dress or pant suit for the ladies. I will be out every sat. for a few hours please do it once a month and you will like it and do it more, it is so awesome you will love it too! God Bless.

      Chad Palmer:
      As a longtime precinct committeeman, state committeeman and conservative Republican activist, I have been doing the work that needs to be done within the GOP before you ever decided to get engaged in the process or even vote. Thanks for the advice, but I don’t need you to tell me how to dress to do the job I do.

      Now, onto the very important topic at hand. Unfortunately Ruth Ginsburg is not alone in her convoluted leftist vantage point. When Sandra O’Connor was still on the court, she held the same exact view and was quite upfront in her belief that advocated the “supremacy of international law.” O’Connor often was in concert with the liberal Democrats on the SCOTUS. (Don’t believe me? Read the eye-opening link at the end of this comment.)

      Since her retirement, she has aligned with numerous left of center groups and issues. Liberals and so-called moderates are the enemies of our Constitution and founding documents which have enshrined the meaning of freedom and liberty and made us the most desired country in the world in which to live.

      O’CONnor conned Ronald Reagan who thought that in appointing the first woman and a Republican to the high court that he was getting a conservative thinker. He did not.

      Mr.Palmer is absolutely right—it is up to the grassroots Republicans to go out into the fields to expand and energize our conservative base. I appreciate his enthusiasm and suggestions to help US and our Party.

      Mz. Ginsburg’s long-standing and powerful ties to the Anti-American Communist Lawyers Union were not a secret at the time she was confirmed by 97 sitting “American” senators. It also was not a secret that that same group (ACLU, not Senate) had been created by an extreme socialist (Roger Baldwin) with the goal of transforming US to a godless, socialist state by using her own laws and courts against her.

      Even so, 97 senators voted to confirm her to this position, where she could do the most damage to US. So now, when I hear our current two sitting AZ senators supporting and working for particular AZ candidates for office, it causes me great concern toward that candidacy. It causes me to go out and look for a conservative, patriotic American candidate to support.

      God bless America.

      LD 18 PC-EEEAAASSSYYY Big Fella’! Chad was just trying to get us MOTIVATED! I’m pretty sure Chad would THANK YOU for your service. His SUGGESTIONS as to attire is for those of us (MYSELF INCLUDED…) who HAVEN’T been doin’ this for 20+years. And I would recommend that the VETERANS of this fight such as yourself WELCOME young, aggressive, CONSERVATIVE PC’s into the party!

      Maybe we need to contact our Congressmen & Senators & take our angst out on them, since if they REALLY want to, they may be able to do something about it…

      ….instead of each other.

      • LD 18 PC says:

        Glad to hear he’s “aggressive” and just trying to get “us” motivated, Doc.

        He can meet me at Jos. A Banks at the Scottsdale Promenade this coming Thursday at 7PM.

        He’ll know me right away. I’ll be wearing my usual tacky door-to-door campaign outfit of khakis, a Lauren Polo shirt and topsiders. I’ll be happy to have him select a nice navy pinstripped suit, power tie and Oxford shirt for me. I assume he’s buying?

      • Doc says:

        …didn’t read a word I typed, didja’? Man…wear whatever-th’-heck ya’ want…it was just a suggestion…

      • Yavapai Al says:

        I read what you typed, Doc. Truth is Chad is your friend, you recruited him, and he tends to arrogance. He’s new to voting, to the party and to its structure. If he was even minimally smart, he’d keep his eyes open and his mouth shut until he got the lay of the land. He isn’t, he doesn’t and he won’t.

      • Doc says:

        Well Al, you’re right. Chad IS my friend. AND I not only introduced him to YAVGOP & AZGOP Activities, but here on this site as well…funny…I don’t recall seeing your name here before…ANYWAY…?arrogance?…I’ve never in my 7+YEARS of knowing Chad seen this trait in him. Perhaps you can give us some examples?

  3. Martinshushu says:

    Many years ago Speaker Tip O’Neal famously said “All politics is local.” Now Arizona, please turn off FoxFake News and look local. That is, examine your incompetent and neo-fascist governor. If you solve that problem then maybe you could comment with some credibility on other women in public service.

    Next recall the US constitution was written in ink by hand on a piece of paper. It was not carved on stone tablets brought down a mountain in Egypt by some bearded old beggar. Our constitution is not sacrosanct. We can change it any time we wish. It is not even humane or well written. It upholds slavery and all the horrors of war. Wake up Arizona red people are you that much in denial?

    • garvan says:

      The Bill of Rights is part of our Constitution; the most important part, IMO.

      I’d like to hear from ShuShu what he doesn’t like about the Bill of Rights.

    • LD 20 PC says:

      turn local? And to what news organization, the local FOX is constantly on tears against Joe Arpaio and Russell Pearce, I had to quit watching that, I turned KFYI off because of Barry Young’s nasty attitude toward the Tea party and his constant butt kissing of McNasty. I pick and choose what I watch on Fox, but I can still do that. Maybe NBC is better in your book?

    • Doc says:

      …uuuhhh…hey MARTY! If ya’ don’t LIKE America’s CONSTITUTION…well…North Korea called…they’re lookin’ for their socialists…

  4. garvan says:

    Darth Vader Ginsburg is a disgrace to our judiciary and our country.

    So are the 97 senators who voted to confirm this crumpled piece of human debris.

  5. TeaPartyPatriot says:

    Lunatic-left d-cRAT socialist ginsburg proves, once again, that these radical anti-American extremists know NOTHING about the US Constitution, patriotism, American exceptionalism, self-reliance, American values and every other matter of importance in the life of real Americans.

    Ginsburg is as much of a disgrace to SCOTUS, insult to America and affront to constitutional democracy as OBOZO’s two appointees – the racist la raza extremist and the third-rate political hack.

  6. Maggie says:

    Has anyone else noticed how ugly liberal women tend to be? Glad I’m a conservative!

  7. vinoaz says:

    She is a radical left-wing ACLU lunatic who is unfit to serve on any court. She has no more understanding of the constitution than ShuShu does. Before making such obviously ignorant statements, try educating yourself on the constitution and American history. Thanks for again proving that liberalism, is at best, a mental disorder.

  8. Veritas says:

    Martinshushu says “It was not carved on stone tablets brought down a mountain in Egypt by some bearded old beggar.”

    Actually, our Constitution was based on the Ten Commandments because it ,like the Ten Commandments, flows out of the “Laws of nature and nature’s God” and Ginsburg should know that. And they were written on stone.

    Further, there is an explicit statement that our unalienable rights are endowed by our Creator.

    Out of curiosity, I went to the South African Constitution which Ginsburg touts. No mention of endowed by creator, no Law of nature higher than the state. None of the genius of our founders. Just the “collective wisdom of the South African people” Fits right in with the secular left who worship humankind rather the nature’s God.

    Oh yeah. And rights are not unalienable. They can be limited by the State.

    “The rights in the Bill of Rights may be limited only in terms of law of general application to the extent that the limitation is reasonable and justifiable in an open and democratic society based on human dignity, equality and freedom, taking into account all relevant factors, including ­

    the nature of the right;
    the importance of the purpose of the limitation;
    the nature and extent of the limitation;
    the relation between the limitation and its purpose; and
    less restrictive means to achieve the purpose.”

    Liberalism is not only a mental disorder, it is perceptive one also.

  9. Another LD11 PC says:

    Unfortunately Ginsberg’s beliefs are shared by John McCain, Jon Kyl, those in the current state legislature calling for a constitutional convention and many others who claim to be ‘conservative’.

  10. Chad Palmer says:

    Wow, hit a hot button there…just suggestions there folks you do whatever’s been working for you. Thanks for the invite to your Scottsdale which is on the same night as the Chino PACyderm meeting ;)

    • AZ Conservative Guy says:

      Since you’re now attending, it’s good to know the correct spelling of the PAChyderm Coalition. There’s an H in there after the reference to PAC (as in political action committee). Pachyderm refers to the biological order of animals which include elephants, the symbol of the Republican Party. Jackasses are distinctly representative of the Democrats.

      Welcome aboard!
