The Supreme Court closed its doors for this scary reason

American life continues to be turned upside down.

The latest curveball could upend the 2020 election.

And that’s because the Supreme Court closed its doors for this scary reason.

The Chinese coronavirus is threatening Americans social, political, and economic systems.

Now the Supreme Court can be added to the list of institutions shut down over social distancing measures designed to limit in-person interaction and the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.

The Supreme Court suspended oral arguments for March.

“In keeping with public health precautions recommended in response to COVID-19, the Supreme Court is postponing the oral arguments currently scheduled for the March session,” a statement from the U.S. Supreme Court read.

“The Court will examine the options for rescheduling those cases in due course in light of the developing circumstances,” the court statement added.

Among the cases that were scheduled to be heard was the fight over Democrats demanding access to the President’s financial records and tax returns.

Democrats want to get their hands on the President’s private financial records because they want to selectively leak details to friendly fake news outlets so they can frame the details in the most negative light possible to create endless bad headlines for President Trump as he runs for reelection.

While those are the political calculations, the Supreme Court closed for serious health reasons.

Five of the Justices are over sixty-years-old, which puts them in the most serious at risk categories if they contract the coronavirus.

All American institutions are doing their best to minimize interactions between people since the virus spreads through water droplets from sneezes or coughs and touching previously infected surfaces.

The health of the Justices, lawyers, reporters, and citizens who show up to rally or protest must come first.

And that is why the Supreme Court joined the Chinese coronavirus shutdown.

    Sad thing when so many republicans blame the Democrats for all the things that are happening now!! Most mindless thinking ever!! Just a Trumpian way of finding how to place blame on others instead of themselves, “I’m not going to be responsible”!!!! All unable of any kind of raschinal thinking, mindless ignorance!!

    Yeah they should of let McArthur take care of North Korea & China when he wanted to, we wouldn’t be dealing with these idiots now. But just the same, know how to break up some protesters in Hong Kong without running over them with tanks…Biological Warfare.

    Interesting times we live in. Since as a child of the most high, I will not fear any evil. Or heavenly father has a plan for us. A plan to prosper us and not to harm us. Plan to give us hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

    QED: The “democratic hoax” is your party trying to convince the electorate that Joe Biden is mentally fit to be president.
    QED: The virus did come from China. If it came from Italy we’d call it the Italian Virus. Its not racist to call the virus by its place of origin just like was done with Ebola and The West Nile Virus, Lyme Disease, and the Spanish Flu for example.
    Are you really that stupid or just messing with people?

    They can video – teleconference like everybody else. Seems to me that SCOTUS work is portable. With current technology there should be no reason that SCOTUS should suspend performance of the duties that they exist to perform.

    To QED, the thing in N.Korea as it is now was all Truman’s fault,the war was won,but he had to get rid of a certain general who might take his place as president.

    Was looking forward to the Corona Virus taking out at-least Ginsberg!

    Has the Supreme Court never heard of Skype, teleconferencing or in-house closed circuiting?

  10. QED says:

    Trump and his followers are anti-Truman. Truman’s motto was (as president) “the buck stops HERE.” Trump NEVER accepts any blame and has the audacity, with how he has screwed up the response to this pandemic, given himself a “10 out of 10”! If this is Trump’s judgement about assessing himself, which should more accurately be less than 5, see below), then Trump’s idea of good government is very low:
    . 1. Trump said on Feb. 28 that this pandemic was a “democratic hoax”.
    . . 2. Trump ALWAYS blames everyone else – – even done in this article by calling it “Chinese.” It is
    . . . . . . a DISEASE, not a deliberate choice.
    . . 3. Trump On March 10, 2020 he said everyone who needs a test can get a test kit,” but at best their
    . . .. . .might be under a million test kits for 323 million Americans, and cities still can;t get them.
    . . .4. Trump even ordered our own senior health officials and experts to stop briefing the public.
    .. . .5. Trump’s State Department people overrode safety precautions and put 14 Americans infected
    . . . . .. . . with COVID-19 on a plane with healthy passengers and flew them back to the United States.

    It’s all good if The Supreme Court wants to shutdown. No problem at all. Don’t expect to get paid though.
    The little people have to go to risk their lives and work during these times.
    This may be the only way to get Ginsburg off the bench and we won’t be paying for her nap-nap time during arguments anymore.

  12. Flotmorton P Gildersleeve says:

    Yes that is the system we have but it should change so that all who are affected receive the same,
    No Pay for all or Pay for all during calamities. This will make for more efficent government.

  13. Doug Shockley says:

    The Democrats don’t play fair. If it’s someone in their party they’ve done no wrong. If it’s a Republican they always do the wrong thing. The Republicans have no backbone but some are starting to step up. Mitt Romney is a traitor to the Republican party and doesn’t deserve to be in Washington D.C..

  14. Vernon Lindblade says:

    Shut down elections as long as the virus is here President Trump is our President when it gone then we can reelect him … That will get the dems off their asses… Watch they will cure this crap tomarrow

  15. Public_Citizen says:

    Ginsberg, not Ginberg.

  16. Public_Citizen says:

    In addition to the Justices at risk due to age, with Ginberg being at very high risk, you also have at least one younger justice with health problems that place that individual at risk.
    No reason why they can’t set up teleconferencing for oral arguments.

  17. FluffyPillowFive says:

    Of course the justices will still be paid while they’re not working because that’s how the system works.
    But that’s OK ’cause we know those poor justices live paycheck to paycheck like most of us, right?
