BREAKING: Supreme Court Swing Vote, Justice Anthony Kennedy, Announces Retirement

On Wednesday, in a move that had long been rumored by Republicans and long dreaded by Democrats, Justice Anthony Kennedy — the swing vote on the Supreme Court — announced his retirement. Kennedy’s replacement by an originalist could dramatically shift the balance of power on the court, and make Chief Justice John Roberts the new swing vote.

Democrats and members of the Left have immediately shifted into panic mode, suggesting that Kennedy’s retirement will end with the overturning of the egregious Roe v. Wade decision.

    I am praying the next Justice follows the US Constitution with an originalist outlook. For too long we have shunned the basis for our country by several women and men on the court and especially Justice Ginsberg , who thinks we should go by the South African Constitution or some other international law
