Associate Justice Stephen Breyer Plans to Retire

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer plans to retire early this summer. Those on the left wanted him to retire early last year; however, Breyer stated that this was his own decision. Senator Shumer indicated that his replacement will be confirmed with deliberate speed.

From Fox News:

“It has always been the decision of any Supreme Court Justice if and when they decide to retire, and how they want to announce it, and that remains the case today. We have no additional details or information to share from @WhiteHouse,” she tweeted.

During his campaign, Biden promised that he would nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court. One potential option is D.C. Circuit Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson — a progressive favorite who Biden nominated last year.

Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., was among the first voices after the news that Breyer is stepping down to call for a Black woman to be his replacement.

“In the wake of Justice Breyer’s retirement, I want to voice my support for President Biden in his pledge to nominate the first Black woman to the Supreme Court. The Court should reflect the diversity of our country, and it is unacceptable that we have never in our nation’s history had a Black woman sit on the Supreme Court of the United States,” she said.

Republican activists, meanwhile, already appear to be gearing up to oppose Biden’s eventual pick.

“The Left bullied Justice Breyer into retirement and now it will demand a justice who rubber stamps its liberal political agenda,” Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino tweeted. “And that’s what the Democrats will give them, because they’re beholden to the dark money supporters who helped elect them.”

He is 83…Wonder if he will keep his word?

After all, Plastic Woman Nancy Pelosi, who will turn 82 in March, said she was gonna retire.

Not anymore:

“Pelosi Announces Re-Election Bid Ahead of 2022 Midterm”

Not knocking down “Older” Folks considering the ninja family is viewed as being “Old” by younger folks.

We just wish the House and Senate had an age limit as to who could serve. Same with POTUS, VP…the entire Chain Gang.

Had the opportunity to see Strom Thurman in action in DC. It was VERY PAINFUL to watch. Two guys had to lead him to a podium and help him with a gavel. He was in his late, late 90s.


Absolutely, just like Ronald Reagan. Oh, wait…


Reagan was 69 when first elected and then 73 when re-elected. Breyer is 83. Pelosi will be 82. Still think there should be an age limit. Some of them have been hanging around DC way too long when they should have retired. Then again, we have folks that are way younger than us in DC who don’t have a clue on reality…AOC and her Squad…😎😉

Back when the country was new, a lifetime appointment really wasn’t that long since the average person only lived to about 62 or so.

A Proud Infidel®™️

You miss the fact that on the day he was installed, Joe Biden was older than Ronald Reagan was the day he left Office, you lose.


She has to run. It’s “For the children.”

Name one thing she’s ever done for any children.


Try to drink all the Vodka so they can’t have any and become alcoholics? 😀


Why does Hansel and Gretel come to mind?


Breyer must have learned the lesson of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Remember her arrogance, that failed her legacy.
She believed Hillary would win. When that failed……
She believed she would live forever.
A liberal seat was lost, and it’s all on her.

Breyer must now be convinced
that being on the court in 2025 is a bad idea.


If sniffy joe appoints MooseHell would that be fulfilling his campaign promise to appoint a Black Female? Only an Anthropologist knows for sure.


Um, KOB, ol’ Poe thinks maybe only a gynocologist knows for sure…

Name withheld by request

The nominee will be a black, non-binary, LBGTQ+ABCDEFGHIJKLNMOPQRSTUVWXYZ, dwarf, hunch backed, club footed, cleft pallet, blind, deaf, mute with 2 different colored eyed to hit as many check marks as possible. The VP was a diversity hire, so was the rest to cement his legacy of fools & freaks.


Please watch with the Cleft Palate comment. And the Dwarf comment. And Club Foot. And Blind. And Mute. And 2 Different Colored Eyes.

Some folks were born with those items mentioned aboved.

Thank You.


Now that I think about it, “black” was unneccessary as well. Virginia just elected Winsome Sears as LT Governor. Also, the alphabets. Richard Greenell served on Trump’s Staff. He is Gay. I also left out hunch-backed.

There has to be a reason why you self identify as “Name withheld by request”.

Please…Let’s be more mature about this. We completely understand and get what you are saying…it’s just your comment just came across as rude, crude and socially unacceptable. 🤔


“Cerebral Palsy Couldn’t Keep Him From Becoming A Medical Doctor”


I sure hope “Name withheld by request” is not one of those who aborts innocent unborns because they have a Birth Defect or made fun of others who had those Birth Defects.

Richard Greenell is great. So is Glenn Greenwald. We do not care that they are Gay. Just as we do not care what Color skin one may have…or Birth Defects.


Nwbr dicked up the alphabet.
Times up to catch and edit it.
Picking on the born disabled is worse
than picking on the “I self identify as” disabled.
Nwbr should know better.



We got a -1 in Red which we are proud of.

Some people can be so immature when it comes to knocking down those with Birth Defects. Most of the time, they are Bullies.

Don’t get me started on Bullies with their insecure personality disorders. 😉😎


AOC is doing really good somebody with severe disabilities.


Would that be her low IQ or her total lack of common sense and self-awareness?



USMC Steve

Betternot say that or all the folks with thin skin and no sarcasm meters will get pussyhurt like they did above. Calm the fuck down, all of ya.


That’s “All Ya’All”. Speak Goodly Engrish’s.


To see things in a different perspective, Queen Elizabeth is 12 years older than Breyer and is getting ready to celebrate 70 years as the Queen. Breyer was only 13 years old when she took over the throne.

Bet Charles is wondering when he is gonna be King.


Hopefully never.


I remember a comedy skit which featured Prince Charles trying to give someone an order. The person responded, “Who died and made you King?” Charles sniffed, “Nobody.”


Looks like meats back on menu ,boys!
This is gonna get spicy.


“Who Could Replace Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer”


Think Heals up Harris is gonna park her mattress in the SCOTUS?


If she’s smart (which she’s really not), she will.


It is highly unlikely Kamel-toe wants to be an SCT justice. She is lazy; and the justice job requires a great deal of hard work. Justices have to read voluminous bench briefs and drafts of opinions. A justice also can’t ignore his/her clerks like Harris does her aides. If she won’t read her briefing materials as a VPOTUS, I can’t imagine her taking a SCT justice job.


Why a black woman? Why a woman? Why not just the most qualified by experience, decision history, and background, regardless of race or gender? But then, I always think of things logically instead of ticking boxes.


“Of the 115 justices, 110 (95.7%) have been men. All Supreme Court justices were males until 1981, when Ronald Reagan fulfilled his 1980 campaign promise to place a woman on the Court,[57] which he did with the appointment of Sandra Day O’Connor. O’Connor was later joined on the Court by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, appointed by Bill Clinton in 1993. After O’Connor retired in 2006, Ginsburg was joined by Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, who were successfully appointed to the Court in 2009 and 2010, respectively, by Barack Obama.[58] In September 2020, following Ginsburg’s death, Donald Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett to succeed her.[59] Barrett was confirmed the following month. The only other woman to be nominated to the Court was Harriet Miers, whose nomination to succeed O’Connor by George W. Bush was withdrawn under fire, also marking the first time when a woman
was nominated to replace another woman on court.”

There has never been anyone of Asian or Hispanic background as well.


Correction: There has never been anyone of Asian background as well. Sonia Sotomayor is Hispanic.

USMC Steve

It would be trendy. And maybe garner him some level of approval that he does not have now. Not the first time this happened. I think Reagan did it too, and viola we got Sandra Day O’Connor.

They are going to have some serious trouble this time getting anyone nominated, because the GOP types are gonna buck them, and they have lost Sinema and Manchin, who have indicated they are so pissed at the attempted manipulation of the socialist dems that they may not go along with anything they try to do.

President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neande

According to the DildoCrats, we’re all supposed to be in a post-racial/sexist society.
And yet, here they are, nominating a SCroTUS judge just on those very immutable traits, race & sex. As opposed to selecting on qualifications (knowledge of the Constitution & the law, decisions made in the past, morality…..)
If PDJT had had the opportunity to nominate Candice Owens to SCroTUS, I’d bet the DildoCrats would STILL be howling to the moon. (HOW DARE HE!!!!)
And for a current qualified nominee, what about Winsome Sears (VA new AG)?
Naaaahhhhh……..doesn’t fit their agenda.
And that’s what it all comes down to………agenda.

jeff LPH 3 63-66

With the Kremlin socialist demoRats, it’s all about gender and race.

jeff LPH 3 63-66

Maybe when breyer retires, he can go into the ice cream business. I forgot to add this in my last comment.


Me thinks lots of federal judges are going to identify as females and black starting tomorrow.
That sound correct Lars?


Hey! That looks like dinner!


Or lunch, possibly breakfast for Nancy (#HouseDrinker) Palosi.


So….Were you against Clarence Thomas who was nominated by President George H.W. Bush and Amy Coney Barrett who was nominated by President Trump?


Ninja, ol’ Poe thinks may be you’re missing some attempts at humor here at a site which is not exactly known for either delicacy or decorum…


Judge Clarence Thomas on Joe Biden:


We all know why this is happening.

The DemoRats are afraid the GOP will win back the House and Senate in 2022.


They’re not?
I mean I’m not counting my chickens but, I would bet pretty solid money on it. (Also allowing to the fact that they don’t find a way to cheat and steal votes, DUH!)




Plans to retire or forced? They see what’s coming in the midterms and do not want a repeat of ginsburg.


I’m thinking he maybe told someone he was considering it, the White House had tone, took the shot, and leaked it to the press to hasten his departure.


Would be funny if he said the news of his retirement was greatly exaggerated.

Heads would explode.


I am sure that the current administration will nominate an individual that is well qualified in judicial jurisprudence and constitutional law, and will not succumb to the whims of pure political activism.

Just like Justice Sotomayor.


Stay Salty!

Veritas Omnia Vincit

Ahh yes SCOTUS, nine people who regularly get it wrong yet remain revered as the final arbiters of the law in a nation pretending to be constructed upon “the law”….as if the law were some immutable lexicon of conduct and morality…

When, as we’ve all seen, it’s more malleable than silly putty regardless of which nine occupants are at the court currently.

Helo Bubba

The next SCOTUS nominee


Well thank goodness he will make a pick based on skill and experience and not race and gender, right? Right…?
