US Supreme Court Justice: "If Trump Wins, It's Time To Move To New Zealand"

Tyler Durden's picture

In what we can assume was a joke, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that if Donald Trump wins the presidential election, she’ll consider moving.  In an interview with The New York Times published Sunday, the Supreme Court justice, whose peers traditionally avoid political topics like the plague, said her husband, who died in 2010, would have said, "Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand."

“I can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president,” she said. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”

As The Hill adds, Ginsburg, 83, said she will not leave her job “as long as I can do it full steam.”  But she mentioned that that Justices Anthony M. Kennedy and Stephen G. Breyer are no longer young, alluding to the effect the presidential election will have on the court. 

As the NYT adds, her colleagues have said nothing in public about the presidential campaign or about Mr. Obama’s stalled nomination of Judge Merrick B. Garland to the Supreme Court. But Justice Ginsburg was characteristically forthright, offering an unequivocal endorsement of Judge Garland to fill the vacancy left by the death of Antonin Scalia. 

“I think he is about as well qualified as any nominee to this court,” she said. “Super bright and very nice, very easy to deal with. And super prepared. He would be a great colleague.”

Asked if the Senate had an obligation to assess Judge Garland’s qualifications, her answer was immediate. “That’s their job,” she said. “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year.”

We now await Trump's tweeted response, together with Bader Ginsburg's one-way ticket to Wellington fedexed courtesy of the Trump campaign.

Is it just me or is it highly inappropriate for a SCOTUS “justice” to inject herself into electoral politics?


Stupid question... everything a collectivist lib that believes in following European “law” does is inappropriate.

She should be impeached.

Can I pay for her ticket? The timing would be great, Trump may get to name 3 supreme court Justices, the radical left should be very afraid. Correction they and the powers that be are very afraid and they a deserve to be. Trump 2016

She can take the rest of them with her.

I love it when the system feels it is forced to reveal itself.  Above politics my ass.

Mr. Putin, please don't nuke the beautiful New Zealand countryside.

(Just send in some advance teams capable of 'extreme prejudice'.)

Does anyone remember EVER seeing a sitting supreme court justice comment like this ona presidential race? I don't. The left is RANCID. No rules apply to them, spoken or unspoken.

She did comment on the US Sex Code and her writing was inclined toward lowering the age of consent.

This references the consent passage


This is the code itself

Makes you wonder what really goes on in that creepy mind she has.

I don't know why they all assume that they'll be safe here - us natives can be pretty savage.

Whatever makes her think New Zealanders would be happy to accept her? Is she feeling exceptional? Typical!

If I looked like Ginsberg, I'd be more afraid of a house dropping on me from the sky.

Yep, New Zealand is the ultimate safe room. With the US angling for WWIII, a lot of the very rich are moving to NZ, and why not, a nice climate nice people and no violence or weapons.

After the US/EU have tried bringing democracy to Russia/China most of the northern hemisphere will be a smokey radioactive place, Middle Earth will continue to have the cleanest environment on the planet.

It's also far enough away from everywhere else, that refugees will not be a problem.

All the nuke subs with nowhere to return to will show up in New Zealand like there is a submarine convention. They'll bring plenty of guns, thanks.

Yah think ..... overrun with them "refugees" right now. They fly in with bags stuffed with moola.

Putin could save New Zealand from invading oligarchs by declaring he has targeted it just to guarantee MAD continues to work.

She does kind of look like the witch of the north.

Maybe it's all the decades of cultural decay seeping out.

I'm tired of hearing all these empty promises from these people.  If she was smart, she would leave now and beat the rush.  No sense in waiting for the last minute.  Apparently she assumes that New Zealand would want her?  The upside is she probably won't be alive long enough to do them any harm, miserable old Witch.

New Zealand is a gun-free (and thus a very elite-friendly) zone.

SWR there are plenty of guns here - stop talking about stuff you know nothing about.

Bollocks I live in NZ and have enough to hunt with !!!!!

Gun free? not the last time I checked my safes... 
About a third of the people I know have guns. Mostly large caliber rifles.  
If any elites show up here I hope they bring gold with them (silver lining).

Here's a direct quote from this old dried up piece of scum:

(((Ruth Bader Ginsburg))), just another hate filled Jew concerned solely about her Tribe's wellbeing.


And who thinks that NZ wants you or your fucking tribe anyway?

How many years would it take before the Kiwi would figure (((your))) game out and boot you the fuck out.


109 and counting!

Another gworgeous tribeswoman.  Please... oh, PLEASE don't leave our country for New Zealand!  We need as many of your kind around as possible to teach us racists the errors of our ways.  *sniff*

quadraspleen's picture

Yeah, I was just thinking "if Trump wins, your (((team))) has properly failed, and I think NZ may not be far enough to escape justice" but then I remembered how Trump most likely bats for the (((team))) too, and could this just be more elite misdirection like the Red Shield and Soros late intervention into the Brexit debate, telling everyone to vote remain because they know a sizable proportion of people know who they are what they (((represent))) and would have voted out just to flip the bird to them, but then my brain started to hurt with the wheels within wheels and I gave up.

That alone should be grounds for impeachment, relieving her of her LIFELONG appointment to UPHOLD AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC!

These people at the top have been making a mockery of law for so long that now it's at the street level.  Anyone that thinks this gets better is not paying attention.

I'll drive you to the airport (for free, just to be sure)

I'll rent a bus and drive Ginsberg, Lowretta, Sharpton, Whoopi and the Clintons to the airport. Perhaps tie Comey to the rear fender and take him along too.


Fly them all to Libya, a Hillery Clinton creation.

Screw flying; drive the bus there... or at least as far out into the Pacific as you can.
