Justice Breyer to retire

Gateway Pundit83-year-old Justice Stephen Breyer will retire from the US Supreme Court at the end of the current term after 27 years on the bench.

Breyer, who was nominated by former President Bill Clinton, is currently one of the three liberal justices serving on the highest court of the land.

Breyer’s retirement while the Democrats control the Senate will allow Joe Biden to appoint a far-left justice to replace him.

This won't change the balance of the court, but it will likely preserve one of the three solidly left-wing seats as a left-wing seat. Breyer and/or the left generally are clearly reacting to Breyer's age and the risk that they may lose the Senate in 2022 and then face another situation where McConnell could hold the seat open for a Republican president in 2024.

With a 51-50 Senate the Dems will probably get this through. There may well be fireworks, especially after Kavanaugh and if Biden nominates someone from the far left. Which he almost certainly will.
