The Cult of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The founding fathers never intended for the Supreme Court to be an exciting place of political activity. The plan they laid out had Congress making the laws, and the Executive branch implementing those laws. The Supreme Court’s job was to make sure all the other players followed the Constitution.

The Supreme Court started wandering from its original mandate when liberal justices decided they had the authority to reinterpret the law. Just as the meaning of language changes over time, progressive lawyers and judges see the need to update our understanding of our constitutional guideline. As the highest court in the land became more bold in reshaping society, the Supreme Court came up with a ruling that banned prayer in schools and legalized the killing of unborn children.

In the past few years, we have rapidly reached a point where the four most liberal justices vote their political views on nearly every case that comes before them. The right of a citizen to own a gun is now a matter of who controls the Supreme Court. As soon as liberals attain a majority vote, they will strike down the Second Amendment.

A couple weeks ago, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized after fracturing three ribs from a fall in her office. Her injury prompted panic from supporters who worried about what it would mean for her seat on the court. Because she is one of the most liberal judges on the court, the leftists feared that President Trump would have a chance to replace her with someone with a conservative view.

Ginsburg has become such a cultish feminist icon, people were offering up their own body parts to keep her alive. “She can have all my ribs,” Rabia Chaudry, an attorney, tweeted. “If Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs any of my bones or internal organs, I don’t need mine,” said actress Leslie Grossman.

This weird affection for her has been met with some humor demonstrating the whole absurdity of Ginsburg worship. Jimmy Kimmel went as far as to caution his viewers during his late-night show that they must “protect” the elderly justice “at all cost” so that she could stay on the Court “another 80 years.” He suggested keeping Ginsburg in a giant bubble that was demonstrated by a woman dressed like her.

“We’ve been developing this over the last year,” Kimmel continued. “We’re sending this to Washington to protect Justice Ginsburg from injuries, for criminals, from bears — this thing is actually grizzly bear-proof.”

According to the Associated Press, Ginsburg has had a history of health problems that she has overcome in recent years. It seems like there is some type of demonic protective bubble around her.

“She broke two ribs in a fall in 2012. She has had two prior bouts with cancer and had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery in 2014. She also was hospitalized after a bad reaction to medicine in 2009,” reported the AP.

Justice Ginsburg has reached the ripe old age of 85 years, which is well past the point that most justices have decided to hang up their gavel. She has no plans to retire from her seat because her vote has become equal to a religious fervor. There was talk of her retirement about fours ago. After the 2014 midterm, when Republicans took back the Senate, she was going to wait until President Hillary Clinton came into office. Now that President Trump sits in the oval office and Republicans control the Senate, Ginsburg will have to wait until 2021.

Our system of democracy is a little messed up when our rights depend on the vote of one woman. The founding fathers knew that the best way to preserve freedom was by spreading power over a large legislative body. We have a total of 535 Members of Congress. 100 serve in the U.S. Senate and 435 serve in the U.S. House of Representatives. By making the nine Justices of the Supreme Court final authority in the land, liberals have made it a much easier task to enslave the American people.

The huge battle that erupted over the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation was about a moderate replacing a moderate. If Ruth Bader Ginsburg dropped dead of a heart attack, it would mean civil war. Because we’ve drifted so far from the light of truth, we can no longer see the danger that seeks to devour us.

“The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4).


Israel and the Art of the Deal

With America’s midterm elections done, except for all the shenanigans going on in Florida and Arizona at the time of this writing, focus of President Trump’s agenda seems destined to soon turn to Israel. His friend, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has election problems of his own looming. Trump’s actions and reactions with regard to Israel, therefore, present intriguing potentiality.

The intrigue involves a primary matter of Bible prophecy set for fulfillment in the near future. The peace process involving the Jewish state and its enemy neighbors is at the heart of the intrigue, of course. There is, it is well known in diplomatic circles, a “deal” in the works.

The Trump administration is holding the key elements within this brewing deal close to its presidential vest. But, the man who is known for the “art of the deal” is obviously operating in his interaction with Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the same way he always deals. He is a master of keeping his counterparts in negotiations off-balance, most often coming in with proposals at the most crucial time, forcing decisions that leave interlocutors within negotiations without recourse but to agree.

There is no more important negotiation in which Trump could possibly be engaged than this one. We are talking about the very heart of Bible prophecy yet future. This matter involves getting dangerously close to what God, Himself, calls “the apple of my eye.” The nation–the people called Israel–is a most sensitive matter in God’s holy view.

The Israeli prime minister has for years now been subjected to much the same sort of accusation and innuendo Donald Trump has faced. He is embattled on all sides by opposition politicians and by both Israeli national and international news media.

Still, according to polls, it looks like Netanyahu will be reelected in the upcoming election.

He will almost certainly be forced to dissolve the present government and call an election. The question is whether the election will be called next year or sometime very soon–before the end of the year.

One opinion piece explains:

Two clocks are ticking, one in Jerusalem and one in Washington. The problem is that for the time being, they are not synchronized.

With the midterm elections over in the US, President Donald Trump now has the bandwidth and time to shift his focus back to foreign policy issues, including the so-called “deal of the century” that he longs to broker between Israel and the Palestinians. The finishing touches are being put on the plan, and it could be rolled out as early as next month or in January.

The US schedule doesn’t seem to match up with Israel’s schedule, where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is apparently toying with the idea of moving up the elections, scheduled now for November 2019. No one in the coalition believes the government will last until then, and almost everyone thinks something – either the haredi draft bill or Netanyahu’s criminal investigations – will prompt the prime minister to dissolve the government in the coming months.

This is important because if the government is dissolved in December, there would be no point in rolling out a peace deal that Israel will not be able to embrace…

This is important because if the government is dissolved in December, there would be no point in rolling out a peace deal that Israel will not be able to embrace. (What will come first – Israeli elections or the U.S. peace plan rollout? by Yaakov Katz,  Opinion – Jerusalem Post, November 10, 2018)

Benjamin Netanyahu wants to show the world that he wants to say yes to Israel’s good friend America in the matter of a peace deal. He has most always answered “no” to pressures by American presidents. This is understandable,

because these pressures have been brought about by the likes of President Clinton and President Obama. These–and even George W. Bush, with the likes of James Baker pushing matters–have wanted Israel to give up too much to enemies blood-vowed to push all Jews into the Mediterranean.

But now Netanyahu has a president to deal with who has demonstrated both a love for Israel and the ability to accomplish what few, if any, have been able to accomplish.

Does the Trump plan, held closely to the presidential vest, include giving the Palestinian Authority the state they want? Will this mean dividing God’s most beloved city? These are intriguing–and dangerously so- questions to be sure.

Proceed very cautiously, Mr. President.
