For many people, this was the reason that the 2016 election was so important.
The 81-year old Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has announced that he is going to retire next month.
With the loss of Justice Kennedy, there will be a conservative gap in the Supreme Court.
But not for long.
President Trump will be appointing a new Justice from his list of 25 originalist judges.
Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy says he will retire from the nation’s high court next month, giving conservatives an unanticipated opportunity to remake the nine-member body in their ideological image.
At 81, Kennedy retires as the second-oldest justice on the judicial panel his swing votes have become a fixture on. He will retire on July 31 just after his birthday next month.
For Donald Trump, the retirement provides the Republican president with the right to leave his stamp on the judicial branch for decades to come, as whoever he decides to appoint is likely to be approved by the narrowly-held GOP Senate.
With the slow-dragging feet of the Democrats and the midterm elections around the corner, it doesn’t leave much time vet an appointee and have them confirmed.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has canceled the summer break in order to consider the President’s nominations that have been held up and has committed to have the new nominee confirmed by fall.
The Senate has the sole authority to approve the president’s nominations. Republicans lowered the threshold for court appointments last year in order to push through Trump’s first high-court pick, Neil Gorsuch.
The GOP is anticipated to expand its 51-seat majority in the U.S. Senate in November. Waiting until after the election to appoint a justice could, however, prove disastrous if any of the seats the GOP currently holds fall into the other party’s palm.

This is MAGA news!
The only thing that would make this any better is if “the notorious RBG” — who herself is 85 — decides to step down while Republicans still control the Senate.
With Originalist Judges having a 6-3 advantage, this would be awesome news for those who are sick of Militant Leftists leveraging activist judges to accomplish their goals.
This calls for the Winning remix:
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
Ladies, tell everyone that you don’t like the emasculated, metro-sexual ‘feminists’ — you’d rather have a President with balls:
And gents, let everyone know that you want your President to be just as much of a man as you are:
Donald J. Trump is our 45th President. Why? Because Americans from all races and classes are sick of whining Republicans and corrupt Democrats. Finally, we have a President who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks even if it is not popular with the press. Trump is not a typical politician. Trump can’t be bought. He will back up what he says with action, no matter the cost. Finally. A president with balls!
Get yours today and trigger the leftists and the RINO NeverTrumpers.
