#Holder #pushes for #Supreme #Court #term #limits, says ‘#18-years is enough’
Why not 20 – 30 years???
Sep 25, 2014 – Eric Holder is the first attorney general in history to be held in contempt by the House of … Goldberg: President Obama losing his ‘hatchet man’ …
Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday openly called for 18-year term limits for Supreme Court justices, lending his support to a push that has gained steam among Democrats amid the Trump administration’s rapid-fire federal judicial appointments — and the possibility of a looming Supreme Court vacancy.
Are you kidding me?? Eighteen years is like a lifetime to some people. This is probably the only thing I #partially agree on with Holder; BUTT we have different #timelines and #motivations for our positions.
Holder and his ex-boss speak with forked tongue. If TMC was in office, do you think TMC’s hatchet-man would ever suggest term limits?? Hell no.
In my opinion; there should be an 8 – 10 year limit for the Supreme Court justices or any other government held position, including congress and the senate. They get too comfortable in their positions and become more #dictators than #servants of the people.
The #dastardly-duo have been #stirring the pot for many years, trying to get a stronghold on taking over the USA with their socialists agenda. They gave it a very good run at it while TMC was in office, BUTT their mission did not end the way they intended it to. Now from the outside looking in; they are still trying to upset the apple cart and eventually take #control.
The Supreme Court is one $facet of the government that most people forget about, do not pay much attention to or understand the #power it has. Some of the citizens of this country do not realize the Supreme Court has #THE-FINAL-SAY-SO on all #legal matters governing this country. That is why; anyone that gets to sitting #THE-BIG-CHAIR wants to have #THEIR-PEOPLE who wearing the #black-robes as the majority, so they can support their issues.

|Authorized by||Constitution of the United States|
|Judge term length||Life tenure|

Is anyone #foolish enough to believe; if TMC was sitting in THE BIG CHAIR, Holder the #Hatchet-man would want term limits?? If so, think again.
The power of the robe: President Trump has already appointed 192 federal judges, significantly outpacing both Obama and George W. Bush. By this time in their respective tenures, Obama had appointed only 128 judges and Bush 171, according to the Heritage Foundation. Trump was also ahead of Bill Clinton, at 188; George H.W. Bush with 128, and Ronald Reagan, with 122.
Like JFK once said; this is my football and we will play the game my way. If the sitting president has The Power of The Robe on his side, that is about 89% or more of the battle.
In my opinion, 8 – 10 years is plenty of time for anyone to be in a position of power. Lifetime is out of the question. Why you AXE???
They have too much power. How can they vote on a critical issue when they are counting sheep most of the time.
