    Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg To The Egyptians.....

    As Egyptian officials prepare to send to trial 19 American democracy and rights workers, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg visited Cairo last week where she suggested Egyptian revolutionaries not use the U.S. Constitution as a model in the post-Arab Spring.

    "I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012," Ginsburg said in an interview on Al Hayat television last Wednesday. "I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, have an independent judiciary. It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done."

    She then pointed not only to South Africa's constitution, but to Canada's 1982 Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the European Convention on Human Rights.

    "Why not take advantage of what is else there in the world? I'm a very strong believer in listening and learning from others," Ginsburg added.

    Indeed, Ginsburg's comments are not foreign to her overall philosophy. The justice has previously stated that she weighs foreign law as well as U.S. law when forming a legal opinion.

    "The notion that it is improper to look beyond the borders of the United States in grappling with hard questions has a certain kinship to the view that the U.S. Constitution is a document essentially frozen in time as of the date of its ratification," Ginsburg told an audience at the American Society of International Law in April 2005.....snip~

    What the hell? Clinton picked this bag of Wind didn't he? How can we leave someone like this on the Supreme Court. She looks to Foreign law? WTF is that all about. D will love the part about South Africa. Still why is she even traveling anywheres out the Country and trying to get involved in Egyptian Politics? this is absolutely ridiculous. Now SC Judges going overseas to speak to people. Catch them some of that New Democracy that they so Advocate for.

    Yeah, I'm sure the Egyptians will be sure to appreciate the advice of an American Jew.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    I am sure the MB will want to learn all they can. Can't we come up with anything to remove these people from their cozy little spots.

    Well maybe the Egyptians will throw her in jail too. It seems to be open season on Americans over there.

    Posted that on another forum, FFA, where it was pointed out that she swore an oath to support and defend the US Constitution and that this rejection is impeachable.

    I, (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

    I do believe you are right there Chris. One would think she could be impeached!
