Joe Biden is under water with American voters, and panic started to infuse the Democrat Party.

But few predicted they’d trigger one nuclear option.

And devastating Biden news just drove a Supreme Court Justice to the edge.

Supreme Court Justice is under fire because of Biden’s weak poll numbers

Democrats are not confident that Joe Biden will defeat Donald Trump in a rematch.

Despite being savaged endlessly by the press, Trump leads Biden in key swing state polls.

Fearing that Trump could be back in the White House for another four years, the Left is beginning to put pressure on Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to step down.

Democrats do not want Trump to get a fourth Supreme Court nomination, which would put the conservative lean on the court at 7-2.

Whispers about Sotomayor

The left-wing group Fix the Court discovered that Justice Sotomayor needed to travel with a medic—suggesting that she is not in the best of health—and gave the story to the leftist outlet The Huffington Post.

Huff Po reported that “only one sitting Justice appears to have taken the unusual step of traveling with a medic: 69-year-old Justice Sonia Sotomayor. The revelation comes from newly released U.S. Marshals Service records obtained by the nonpartisan court watchdog Fix the Court, which requested information about security for current and former Supreme Court Justices. And it amplifies questions that many only whisper about the long-term fitness of the oldest Democratic-appointed Justice on the court.”

The article mentioned that Sotomayor was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was seven years old and requires multiple insulin shots per day.

Leftists urged Ruth Bader Ginsburg to step down while Barack Obama was President, but Justice Ginsburg wanted to be replaced by the first female President.

That plan went sideways when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Ginsburg, a cancer survivor, ultimately passed away in September 2020, and Trump replaced her with Amy Coney Barrett.

In February 2018, a medic from Grand Junction, Colorado, accompanied Sotomayor on a trip she made to southern Florida, according to the records.

On a three-day book tour with stops in Illinois and Tennessee in October of that year, the Marshals Service incurred costs for “baggage (medic),” which could refer to medical personnel or be a more benign reference to medical equipment in the Justices’ luggage. Sotomayor was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age seven and gives herself insulin shots multiple times a day.

Pressure ramping up

This is not the first time leftists have urged Sotomayor to step down.

Journalist Josh Barro said on CNN, “I find it a little bit surprising, given what Justice Sotomayor describes there about the stakes of what is happening before the Supreme Court, that she’s not retired. She’s 69 years old, she’s been on the court for 15 years…It’s quite possible the Democrats will lose control of the Senate in the next election and who knows how long it could be before there’s a next opportunity for a Democratic president to make a new appointment into the seat she sits in. Justice Scalia stuck around through the 2006 election, did not make it to 2017, which would have been the next opportunity.”

The Left will attack anything and anyone to accomplish their goals.
