Members of the Democratic National Committee on Wednesday were heard groaning and saying, “Oh, my God,” when their meeting was broken up with news of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement.

 
 

Politico reported-- citing an audio recording-- that the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee was interrupted by the news alert that was followed with one person saying, “This is not good news.”

Without Kennedy, 81-- who is often seen as a voice of moderation over three decades-- the court will be split between four liberal justices and four conservatives, and the next President Trump pick.

Several former law clerks have said that Kennedy, a nominee of President Ronald Reagan, preferred to be replaced by a Republican. If he had waited, and if Democrats had taken control of the Senate in November, Trump could have found it more difficult to get his choice confirmed.

The retirement of Kennedy—whose votes have decided issues on abortion, affirmative action, gay rights, guns, campaign finance and voting rights—gives President Trump an opportunity to tip the balance in the conservatives’ favor.

The New York Times editorial board called Kennedy's decision “crushing.”

"It is a dark moment in the history of the court and the nation, and it’s about to get a lot darker."

"It is a dark moment in the history of the court and the nation, and it’s about to get a lot darker," the editorial wrote.

Trump said he would start the effort to replace Kennedy “immediately" and would pick from a list of 25 names that he updated last year.

"Verbal Lynching is the political tool used today by dems to silence debate on critical issues."

Well OBluebarry had two to fill,
Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan when David Souter and
John Paul Stevens Retired.
 
After the death of Antonin Scalia, Obum wanted Merrick Garland
to replace him, but time ran out so the Senate placed Neil Gorsuch
to fill in for the tragic murder of the fallen Scalia...

what is sad is the judges let their personal opinions enter rather than the constitution.  half our country is more concerned about other countries than our own country.  In 50 years we won't be the best anymore, NWO will have had their way and brought us down,,, from the inside. SAD

The Dems/left/libs/socialist, the whole ball of **** has been trying
to ignore the Constitution to the point of scraping it entirely.
They want a totally Communist country. And able to appoint
a leader for life, or who ever has the biggest guns, and then America
will be renamed........
