US District Judge Wants Supreme Court to ‘STFU’


Liberals have come flocking out of the woodwork, so to speak, since the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties. From Obama’s contraception poster girl Sandra Fluke to feminists all over the nation, liberals have been crying and screaming that they’ve lost all of their reproductive rights, which is far from the truth.

Allow me to digress here a moment and say that the only reproductive right that God gave women was to bear children and raise them to become godly adults. He did not give them the right to murder their unborn children. In fact, Exodus 21:22-23 states:

“When men strive together and hit a pregnant woman, so that her children come out, but there is no harm, the one who hit her shall surely be fined, as the woman’s husband shall impose on him, and he shall pay as the judges determine. But if there is harm, then you shall pay life for life.”

In other words, if someone causes a woman to give premature birth but the baby is not harmed, that person will pay a penalty. But if the child is harmed, as it is in the case of an abortion, the person causing the baby to leave the womb shall pay with his/her life. I think that’s pretty clear about reproductive rights a woman has and doesn’t have.

Anyway, back to the Supreme Court ruling. We shouldn’t be surprised when the liberals rant and rail against the high court, but I was rather surprised to read about the blog post from Senior US District Court Judge for the District of Nebraska Richard G. Kopf. He was first appointed to the court in 1992 by President George H. W. Bush, so you would expect Kopf to be somewhat conservative.

On July 5th, Kopf posted on his personal blog:

“Next term is the time for the Supreme Court to go quiescent–this term and several past terms has proven that the Court is now causing more harm (division) to our democracy than good by deciding hot button cases that the Court has the power to avoid. As the kids says, it is time for the Court to stfu”

For you naïve people, stfu means ‘shut the f**k up.’

Correct me if I’m wrong, but is Kopf saying that the US Supreme Court should avoid hearing all hot button or controversial cases? If that’s what he’s saying, then what cases should the highest court in the country hear?

Interestingly, if the Supreme Court shouldn’t hear hot button or controversial cases, does that mean that the various US District Courts should have the last say in these cases? If so, that would mean that Kopf, as a Senior US District Court Judge would have the final legal say in hot button and controversial cases heard in his court.

Perhaps Kopf is on his own power trip since he’s not a Supreme Court judge but wants to be. Regardless, his post is unprofessional, improper and downright rude. In many professions, anyone posting such a post would be subject to losing their job. Many have lost their jobs for less.

The US Constitution states that federal judges hold office not for life, but in ‘good behavior.’ Kopf’s behavior is anything but good and should be removed from the bench as soon as possible
