The Supreme Court has become more pivotal than ever in our nation’s history.  Social Justice Warriors (SJW’s) have long used the courts and judicial system to undermine our great nation.

The solution is to ensure that the justices sitting on the highest court in the land are bound by law and not impulse, emotion, or a desire for judicial activism.  To that end, the news that Justice Kennedy may be retiring is very welcome.

The Hill reports:

Speculation is swirling that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy could announce his retirement as early as this term, The Associated Press and CNN reported Saturday.

Kennedy is considered the most pivotal justice on the Supreme Court, often known for casting the tie-breaking vote in key decisions. 

While he’s among the court’s conservative justices, he has sided with his liberal colleagues at times, including on the court’s 2015 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, permitting same-sex marriage nationwide. 

But Kennedy, now 80, is said to be considering stepping down from the Supreme Court, according to CNN, though he has not publicly signalled he will do so in the next year.

Fueling such speculation is a reunion between Kennedy and his clerks happening over the weekend that was pushed up a year from its original date, according to the AP.

If Kennedy leaves the Supreme Court in the near future, it would pave the way for President Trump to further shape the court by nominating his replacement. Trump’s first pick for the court, Justice Neil Gorsuch, was confirmed in April.

President Trump would name a replacement for Kennedy from his much-touted list of conservative and/or Constitutional originalist judges, and not one of them would be a disappointment.
