Justice Gableman Will Not Run for Reelection

Thank you for your service, Justice Gableman.

Conservative Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman announced Thursday he will not seek re-election next year, saying he is “more hopeful than ever in the triumph of the rule of law in Wisconsin.”

Gableman’s statement did not explicitly address whether he will fill out the rest of his term, which ends in August 2018. But a spokesman said it was his understanding that Gableman plans to complete his term.

The justice said in the statement he trusts “the people of Wisconsin will elect a successor who is similarly committed to the rule of law.”

Gableman said he ran nine years ago believing that “judges ought to apply the law rather than make it.”

“In decisions large and small, I have fulfilled my promises and put my judicial philosophy into practice,” Gableman said in the statement.

    He should retire now, so Walker can appoint someone.

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    Hmmm, did you feel the same way regarding Garland?  Thought not.  Sooooo many hypocrites, so little time.


  3. Paul

    More lies and personal attacks from the white nationalist troll.

    We get to vote for State Supreme court.

    We do not get to vote for USSC.

    Garland also represented an ideology bent on tearing down this great country and its Constitution.

    That is a huge problem as well.

  5. Le Roi du Nord

    So why do you want an appointed one??  Afraid of what an election made produce?  Your double standards are showing again.

    No, he didn’t.  He was recommended by everybody up until the committee hearing.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann

    Scott Walker knows how to choose good people.

    Obama did not.

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    You are entitled to your opinion, but not your own set of facts.

    Maybe you could be specific about the reasons Garland was a poor choice.  Remember he had been appointed by bipartisan support in the past and had high marks from every Bar and Law Assoc.

    Then be specific as to the merits of the yet-to-be named appointee you want walker to pick.

    In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, or off-topic messages in an online community with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, often for the troll’s amusement.
    It’s Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman not Circuit Court Judge Garland.

  9. Kevin Scheunemann


    Completely slipped my mind that you are the great overlord of “facts”….

    1000 pardons.

  10. Le Roi du Nord

    At least I know what a fact is, as opposed to the great and all knowing kevin, who confuses fact with faith, belief, hyperbole and ignorance.

    No need for a pardon.  I wouldn’t believe you were sincere anyway.

  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    In other words, I perform as well as your average liberal global warming disciple on that front.

    I appreciate the compliment.


  12. Le Roi du Nord

    There you go again, twisting and misconstruing the words of others.  You just can’t help yourself, can you ??

    In other words, no you don’t.

  13. Paul

    More personal attacks from the white nationalist troll.

  14. Kevin Scheunemann


    I’ll bite.

    Who’s words did I twist and misconstrue?

  15. Le Roi du Nord

    You really should seek treatment for that memory loss and comprehension problem.  It might not be too late.

  16. Paul

    And more personal attacks by the white nationalist troll.

    It is sad, isn’t it?

  18. Kevin Scheunemann


    Came up with nothing again.

    Hint: I can tell when I win the issue… when you start making it about me rather than issue we are discussing.

    That is a fact, whether you accept it or not.

  19. Le Roi du Nord


    OK, I was trying to let you off easily, but since you insist:

    “In other words, I perform as well as your average liberal global warming disciple on that front”.        Perhaps in your twisted and convoluted mind this is true, but I never said or implied anything in your statement.

    “I appreciate the compliment”.        No compliment was ever given nor implied.  You are just making stuff up again to salve your fear of being wrong.

    I would rather we stick to facts rather than discuss you under any circumstances.  Maybe you should try that sometime.

  20. Kevin Scheunemann


    I did not twist or misconstrue your words.

    I just applied my ideas to your standard.

    I know it is painful for you to realize that global war mining alarmist disciples do same thing.

    You are upset I took your sharp criticism as a compliment?

    Is there a way to ever improve civility in your word that does not upset your delicateness?

  21. Kevin Scheunemann


  22. Paul

    Don’t feed the white nationalist troll.
