Justice Kennedy Announces Retirement: Left Goes Into Full Blown Meltdown

Supreme Court Justice being sworn in

Reinstating Justice

Justice Anthony Kennedy, who has served on the Supreme Court for 30 years, has formally announced his retirement which will take effect on July 31, 2018. Justice Kennedy has been an independent on the Supreme Court, appointed by Ronald Reagan on February 1988, and has voted with his liberal counterparts on several issues -- most notably to uphold Obamacare, and voted in favor of same-sex marriage. On several other occasions, Justice Kennedy has voted with his fellow conservative justices, such as in favor of the landmark travel ban, and voting to get rid of the policy which forced non-union members to have to pay union dues. Justice Kennedy has in short been a wildcard on the Supreme Court; nobody knew what he would support or oppose in the long haul.

With Justice Kennedy’s retirement looming over the horizon, it now gives President Trump a chance to appoint another Justice who will uphold the values of American law like Neil Gorsuch. Upon hearing the announcement of Justice Kennedy retiring, many on the left immediately flew into yet another outrage. Chris Matthews of MSNBC immediately began pleading with members of the Democratic Party to not allow meetings with Trump’s nominee to replace Justice Kennedy, to block Trump’s nominee, and not to allow Trump’s replacement to be confirmed due to what the Republicans had done to Merrick Garland. He said that if they allowed Trump’s nominee to be appointed, there would be “hell to pay.”

Others on the left also did not take to kindly to Justice Kennedy’s retirement, and one began making vile threats as seen in this Tweet:

Fuck ”Justice”Kennedy, his grandkids will reap his legacy of a calculated decision to put at risk women’s and LBGTQ rights Criminalizing women who are raped seeking abortions Kids remaining in cages & ripped from parents,  trump a guilty felon pardoning himself #reapwhatUsow (sic)

Other leftists slanderously accused Kennedy of being a “tyrant and a fraud”:

Justice Kennedy is a narcissistic fraud just like trump. History will not be kind to him. Whoever thought the Supreme Court would side with a tyrant?!

President Trump spoke to a crowd in North Dakota, mentioning how important this was; stating that if Hillary Clinton had won, she would have appointed another nominee to the Supreme Court. President Trump has also announced that he has a list of potential replacements for Justice Kennedy -- whomever he picks will have a long-lasting and vital effect on our judicial system.

Here is the list of potential replacements for Justice Kennedy as published by CNN:

  • Brett Kavanaugh, former Kennedy Clerk
  • Amy Coney Barret, a former Notre Dame professor
  • Raymond Kethledge, former Kennedy clerk
  • Amul Thapar, who is a favorite of Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell
  • Mike Lee, GOP Utah Senator
  • Thomas Hardiman, a runner-up for Gorsuch seat
Any of these individuals could be nominated by President Trump, but at this time it is not clear whom he will nominate. This will mark a very important event for President Trump, as his second appointment to the Supreme Court will be more tilted towards the right. With the Trump administration already having won several victories there as of late, this appointment will make it even harder for leftist, activist judges to be a thorn in the side of justice.

  1. The list has grown to about 25 now. On the list above, Hardiman and Lee, who I think would be absolutely STUNNING for the USA.
