Mark Levin On Obama's Supreme Court Nominees

Liberal Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens Will Retire In June

Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens retiring


Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, the court’s oldest member and leader of its liberal bloc, says he is retiring. President Barack Obama now has his second high court opening to fill.

Stevens says he will step down when the court finishes its work for the summer in late June or early July.

His announcement Friday in Washington had been hinted at for months. It comes 11 days before his 90th birthday.

Stevens began signaling a possible retirement last summer when he hired just one of his usual complement of four law clerks for the next court term. He acknowledged in several interviews that he was contemplating stepping down and would certainly do so during Obama’s presidency.

The timing of his announcement leaves ample time for the White House to settle on a successor and Senate Democrats, who control 59 votes, to conduct confirmation hearings and a vote. Republicans have not ruled out an attempt to delay confirmation.

The leading candidates to replace Stevens are Solicitor General Elena Kagan, 49, and federal appellate Judges Merrick Garland, 57, and Diane Wood, 59.

Stevens' departure will not change the court's conservative-liberal split because Obama is certain to name a liberal-leaning replacement.


Levin makes the point that even though he believes that filibustering of judicial nominees is unconstitutional, he also believes that we must do it to contain the most dictator-like president we’ve ever had. It may also have the reverse effect of forcing the democrats to get rid of the judicial filibuster.

With a stern warning for those still cherish what remains of our freedom, Mark Levin used a portion of Friday’s syndicated radio program to spell out the mission of Obama’s US Supreme Court pick: imposition of dictatorial control over American lives.

While it’s true we don’t yet know which contender will be selected by the regime, Levin believes the mindset of the likely nominee will reflect Obama’s extreme-left ideology.

Do Americans recognize just how different those values are from their own? Or the damage that could be done if Obama successfully installs a fringe radical, as expected?

This video is awesome!!!!

Wild Thing's comment........

Levin is correct: understanding the mindset of America’s Obamist foes is key to undermining their needlessly destructive agenda.

Good riddance Stevens you worthless old liberal coot, the most liberal member of the court.......Shame he'll be replaced by a young liberal, though.

I will never forget the Democrats sinister, totally political rejection of Robert Bork.

I pray Roberts, Scalia, Thomas and Alito stay healthy. God help us - as bad as Stevens is- we can be assured the next one will be a real radical.
