Thanks to President Trump, the Supreme Court seat of legendary Antonin Scalia was filled by another conservative. Over the course of his time in office, President Trump will most-likely appoint additional justices.
That means the Supreme Court will become much more conservative. Their rulings will uphold the integrity of the Constitution. They will also prevent radical activists from making a mockery of our laws and freedoms.
But recent news casts doubt on the court, as it looks right now. A leading Justice recently was injured. It has some people raising questions about her time on the bench.
From AP News:
The Supreme Court says Justice Sonia Sotomayor broke her left shoulder in a fall at her Washington home.
The court says the 63-year-old Sotomayor will wear a sling for several weeks and undergo physical therapy…
The court says the fall occurred Monday morning and that a doctor confirmed the break in the afternoon. Sotomayor was in court Monday and did not appear to be in pain.
In January, emergency medical personnel treated her at home for symptoms of low blood sugar. Sotomayor is diabetic.
A shoulder injury is painful, but not drastic. But it does raise into question Sotomayor’s long-term role on the Supreme Court. What caused the injury? Was it simply an accident, or indicative of other problems?
The report states she needed emergency treatment earlier in the year due to low blood sugar. Could her recent injury have been caused by a diabetic episode? We can only wonder, and fear, what this means for the future of the Supreme Court.
And with Hillary’s many falls over the past years, down steps, in the tub, and for all the public to see, one can only think that someone who is actually fulfilling one of the highest offices in America (and not merely running for one), this could be concerning.
And an enormous opportunity.
The court is a crucial branch in the balance of our government’s power. American expect all the justices to be healthy and ready to preside. Considering that several of the justices are north of 80, Americans’ faith in the court is waning.
Add to that a justice that might be out, due to an injury, what are we to believe? Replacements might be vital—and should come much sooner.
Reports claim Sotomayor won’t miss time on the bench because of the broken shoulder. Perhaps, perhaps not. This certainly doesn’t instill confidence in her future health. Will another problem prevent her from presiding in the future?
Be sure that liberals are watching this situation closely. If Sotomayor has to sit out to recover, the power of the court will swing in Trump’s favor. That’s something they’ll surely panic over.
