Ruth Bader Ginsburg has led the Supreme Court’s liberal bloc since her confirmation in 1996.
But now she is in for a rude awakening.
And Ruth Bader Ginsburg just confessed one thing about her future that you won’t believe.
The Supreme Court’s term is in its final weeks.
This is when the Justices will announce their decisions in the most closely watched and controversial cases of the year.
Ruther Bader Ginsburg gave a preview of how some of the biggest cases may turn out and the news is not good for the left.
In remarks to the judicial conference of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, Ginsburg predicted that a series of 5 to 4 decisions are about to come down—a sharp turn from how the court has so far operated this term.
“Given the number of most-watched cases still unannounced, I cannot predict that the relatively low sharp divisions ratio will hold,” Ginsburg told the audience.
Ginsburg prepared her fellow liberals for disappointment when she also stated that the event of greatest consequence for the current term, and perhaps for many terms ahead, was Brett Kavanaugh replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Kennedy was a loyal ally on social issues such as abortion and the radical homosexual agenda.
While those cases are not on the current docket, the Supreme Court will take up whether anti-discrimination laws cover sexual orientation and so-called “transgenders” next term.
And with the increasing number of states passing pro-life legislation, a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade is not far behind.
But in the current term, the court is facing two high-profile cases that appear to be headed for 5 to 4 decisions.
Ginsburg addressed both of these cases – whether the Trump administration can add a citizenship question to the census and the ability of state legislatures to engage in so-called “partisan gerrymandering” – and hinted that the left may be on the losing end of both cases.
In the citizenship question case, Ginsburg alluded to the Trump travel ban case – which the administration won – as a prelude for how the Justices might decide this issue.
“Speculators about the outcome [in the census case] note that last year, in Trump v. Hawaii, the court upheld the so-called ‘travel ban,’ in an opinion granting great deference to the executive,” Ginsburg said.
“Respondents in the census case have argued that a ruling in Secretary Ross’s favor would stretch deference beyond the breaking point.”
On the issue of allowing judges to impose their will on state legislatures and redraw the maps to favor Democrats, Ginsburg also gave a clue as to her opinion on the case.
“Given modern technology, a state legislature can create a congressional delegation dramatically out of proportion to the actual overall vote count,” Ginsburg told the crowd.
“However one comes out on the legal issues, partisan gerrymandering unsettles the fundamental premise that people elect their representatives, not vice versa.”
If Ginsburg’s remarks are to be believed, then Donald Trump’s nominations of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh will pay major dividends this term—and will continue to provide the deciding votes in cases that will roll back the left’s agenda for years to come.
