Ginsburg Shares Views

... on Influence of Foreign Law on Her Court, and Vice Versa

by Adam Liptak - April 11th, 2009 - New York Times

“Why shouldn’t we look to the wisdom of a judge from abroad with at least as much ease as we would read a law review article written by a professor?” she asked.

She added that the failure to engage foreign decisions had resulted in diminished influence for the United States Supreme Court.

The Canadian Supreme Court, she said, is “probably cited more widely abroad than the U.S. Supreme Court.” There is one reason for that, she said: “You will not be listened to if you don’t listen to others.”

Nothing more dramatically emphasizes the problem with law in America today than this arrogant claim by Justice Ginsburg that she is proud to violate her oath to preserve the Constitution. Her feelings are hurt that she is not as admired by the intellectuals abroad as the Canadian Supreme Court is admired. This is a confession of treason against the American people. Yet she thinks that it is a rational defense of her belief that intellectuals from abroad are more important than the people of America.

How can anyone who loves America defend this insane logic?

She actually argues that denying the use of torture to save American citizens is important, because she does not care about American citizens. Their lives are as unimportant to her as fleas. Our entire law has become riddled with examples where trivial technical issues are deemed more important than justice, even life, for anyone who has the misfortune to depend on this arrogant elitist for unbiased law. The law has beocome overwhelmingly biased in favor of those who are most disrespectful of law.

Torture? Ginsburg is above it and perfectly happy to muse about its place in the world even as people are killed, maimed, extorted, beheaded and enslaved. Not her problem. She can sit in her ivory tower and pontificate about perfect justice.

No greater example exists of the reason the world is speeding towards anarchy and choas than this blithering idiot's indenfensible hypocrisy.
