The fake news industry and its extreme liberal bias continue to be exposed on a daily basis with one of the worst culprits being the New York Times.
Not that it is becoming clear that the coup against President Trump is not only failing but the Democratic party is collapsing, the 2020 election could be a day of reckoning for the left. Dems and their lackeys in the media have been able to obstruct Trump at every step of the way – largely by promoting conspiracy theories and peddling scandals – but if the “Blue Wave” doesn’t materialize come November, it would be “Red Tide” in 2020 as a resurgent GOP will wash all of the leftist scum out of power.
Not only would Trump’s reelection give him a chance to seat more conservative judges including on the nation’s highest court, but with the Dems in smoldering ruins and no salvation in sight, it could be two terms for Mike Pence which would shift the balance on the SCOTUS for at least a generation and allow for principled, pro-constitutional justices to roll back decades of liberalism and block the socialists and cultural Marxist fanatics looking to radically transform America.
The New York Times knows it and on Monday, it printed a pathetic screed begging Justice Anthony Kennedy go through with his rumored retirement at the end of the current Supreme Court term.

The New York Times editorial board on Sunday penned an open letter to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, asking him to remain on the court amid rumors of his retirement.
“How can we put this the right way? Please don’t go,” the board wrote.
The board noted Kennedy’s legacy in helping to deliver “landmark legal victories” for groups like LGBTQ Americans and black college students.
And they said that Republicans are eyeing his departure as a chance to “install another rock-ribbed conservative.”
“But this moment is about so much more than partisan jockeying. We can’t know what is in your heart, Your Honor, but we do know what your departure right now would mean for the court, and for the nation. It would not be good,” the editorial reads.
The board argued that Kennedy’s departure would lead to him being replaced with a “hard-line conservative,” a move that “would have enormous consequences for the nation’s laws and Constitution for decades to come.”
The following is excerpted from the NYT’s insipid and desperate plea entitled “Please Stay, Justice Kennedy. America Needs You”:
Sitting between the four liberal justices and the four conservatives, you are the most powerful member of the most powerful court in the country, as you have been for at least a decade. Your vote, more than that of any other justice, has delivered landmark legal victories for Americans of all political stripes, from gays and lesbians seeking equal rights to African-American college students seeking a better education to deep-pocketed corporations seeking to spend more money influencing politics.
You have sent mixed signals about your intentions, but that hasn’t stopped Republicans in Congress from referring to your departure as a done deal. (Of course, they said the same thing last year.) They smell blood — if they can install another rock-ribbed conservative like Neil Gorsuch, the court will have a locked-in right-wing majority for the rest of most of our lifetimes. They won’t even have to steal a seat to do it.
Start with the legacy. Across your 30 years on the court, your most important opinions — and there are many — have altered not just the lives of millions of Americans but the course of the nation’s history. A sampling: Protecting reproductive rights, and saving Roe v. Wade from being essentially overturned, in 1992. Recognizing the equality and dignity of gays and lesbians multiple times since 1996 and, in 2015, granting same-sex couples the constitutional right to marry. Preserving the use of affirmative-action policies at public universities. And, in 2008, rejecting the executive branch’s attempt to create a legal black hole at the Guantánamo Bay detention center, and giving the prisoners there the right to habeas corpus.
As can be from the excerpts, the grievances center around the institution of homosexuality, abortion on demand, racism against white applicants to colleges and otherwise the selective interpretation of the Constitution so as to provide superior rights to identity groups at the expense of the population as a whole.
Not that Justice Kennedy’s decision will be influenced by the yammering yellow-bellied yutzes at the NYT editorial board but the pleading for him not to go shows just how close to their ultimate ideological defeat that the left has in its future if Trump is reelected. Not only will Kennedy retire but feminist activist Ruth Bader Ginsburg won’t be around forever and that would put two more seats in the hands of pro-American justices with respect for the law.
