Pressure on Justices Sotomayor and Kagan shows what leftists REALLY think of Biden’s re-election chances

Feb 15, 2024

The Hur Special Counsel Report made Joe Biden’s decline a matter of public record.

Now Democrats are in panic mode and just gave a clue about their plan to avoid an electoral disaster.

And pressure on Justices Sotomayor and Kagan shows what leftists REALLY think of Biden’s re-election chances

Liberals are amping up pressure on Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan to retire.

The odd timing leads to only one possible explanation.

Lifetime Appointments

United States Supreme Court Justices are appointed by the President of the United States, confirmed by the Senate, and can serve for life.

Associate Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan were appointed by President Barack Obama and sworn in in 2009 and 2010, respectively.

They are currently 69 and 63 years old, respectively, and far away from the average Supreme Court retirement age of around 80.

Nobody in the legal or political professions is expecting either to announce their retirement anytime soon.

Leftist politicos are starting to sweat

However, there’s a growing rumbling on the Left expressing concern.

Justice Sotomayor has lifelong Type-1 diabetes and recently told students at UC Berkeley, “I live in frustration… Cases are bigger. They’re more demanding… To be almost 70 years old, this isn’t what I expected… I’m tired.”

Commentator Josh Barrow recently said on a CNN panel, “I’m not saying I think Justice Sotomayor is on death’s door… But I think it’s important, given it’s a lifetime appointment, to take a very long-time horizon view on this.”

With Democrats currently controlling the White House and Senate, leftists want Sotomayor and Kagan to retire, so Democrats can fill the seats with guaranteed leftist replacements.

If they don’t do it now, the Left is petrified that Democrats will lose power in the November election and thus lose their ability to fill judicial vacancies.

Polling currently shows Republicans in a strong position to back the White House and Senate Majority.

If this transpires in November, and then Sotomayor or Kagan were to unexpectedly retire in 2025, conservatives could see their Supreme Court majority increase to 7-2, or even 8-1, if both retire while the White House and Senate are under Republican control.

Between the White House and Senate, if Republicans control even just one institution, that would still mean Democrats couldn’t have their pick of the progressive litter, and would have to settle for someone more moderate.

Confirmation of Republican chances

The fact that liberals are freaking out behind the scenes confirms that the polls aren’t just aberrations and that the Left is starting to see real problems coming in November.

Joe Biden unfavorability numbers, which they typically have dismissed as nonsense or (probably) ‘right-wing disinformation,’ is now rearing itself as a reality that can’t be ignored.

There is a deep dissatisfaction among the electorate, and it’s directed at exactly the kind of politics Democrats have been serving for four years under the Biden administration.

The key question is whether Democrats will accept this reality, reflect, and start fighting back against the parasitic, socialist ideas permeating throughout their party.

Will they reflect on their policies, public image, and communication with the public, and fix what are clearly self-inflicted wounds?

Or will they double down on their racist, anti-family rhetoric and just assume some campaign TV ads and Trump-bashing are all that’s needed to change their fortunes?

There are growing rumors that key Democrat leaders want to ditch Biden and replace him with Michelle Obama but are reluctant to do so because of the Kamala problem.

And offering Harris a Supreme Court appointment to step down may be enough to buy her off.
