Justice Anthony Kennedy announces retirement, leftists are losing their minds

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy says he is retiring. That will give President Donald Trump the chance to ensure conservative control of the high court with a constitutional pick.

Kennedy, 81, announced Wednesday he is stepping down after more than 30 years on the court and representing a proverbial “swing” vote on many issues.

“It has been the greatest honor and privilege to serve our nation in the federal judiciary for 43 years, 30 of those years on the Supreme Court,” Kennedy, who is stepping down July 31, said in a statement.

Kennedy informed the president of his decision in a letter.

“My dear Mr. President,” Kennedy wrote. “For a member of the legal profession it is the highest of honor to serve on this court. Please permit me by this letter to express my profound gratitude for having had the privilege to seek in each case how best to know, interpret and defend the Constitution and the laws that must always conform to its mandates and promises.”

While Senate Democrats lack the numbers to deny the seat to whoever Trump chooses, they will ratchet up the stakes of the choice.

Pro-life advocate Lila Rose agrees about Roe v Wade going up for vote: Justice Kennedy just announced his retirement from US Supreme Court. If the next Justice appointed supports the basic human right to life for ALL people, this could be the end of the horrific, immoral and unjust 1973 Roe v Wade decision.
