RIP Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The Supreme Court has announced the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the age of 87 from complications due to metastatic cancer of the pancreas.  The 2020 election is officially in hyper-drive…

SCOTUS – Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died this evening surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer. She was 87 years old.

Justice Ginsburg was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Clinton in 1993. She was the second woman appointed to the Court and served more than 27 years. She is survived by her two children: Jane Carol Ginsburg (George Spera) and James Steven Ginsburg (Patrice Michaels), four grandchildren: Paul Spera (Francesca Toich), Clara Spera (Rory Boyd), Miranda Ginsburg, Abigail Ginsburg, two step-grandchildren: Harjinder Bedi, Satinder Bedi, and one great-grandchild: Lucrezia Spera. Her husband, Martin David Ginsburg, died in 2010.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. said of Justice Ginsburg: “Our Nation has lost a jurist of historic stature. We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice.”

Justice Ginsburg was born in Brooklyn, New York, March 15, 1933. She married Martin D. Ginsburg in 1954. She received her B.A. from Cornell University, attended Harvard Law School, and received her LL.B. from Columbia Law School. She served as a law clerk to the Honorable Edmund L. Palmieri, Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, from 1959–1961.

From 1961–1963, she was a research associate and then associate director of the Columbia Law School Project on International Procedure. She was a Professor of Law at Rutgers University School of Law from 1963–1972, and Columbia Law School from 1972–1980, and a fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences in Stanford, California from 1977–1978. In 1971, she was instrumental in launching the Women’s Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union, and served as the ACLU’s General Counsel from 1973–1980, and on the National Board of Directors from 1974–1980. She was appointed a Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 1980. During her more than 40 years as a Judge and a Justice, she was served by 159 law clerks.

While on the Court, the Justice authored My Own Words (2016), a compilation of her speeches and writings.

A private interment service will be held at Arlington National Cemetery. (link)

    And she politicized the Court beyond previous polite boundaries in criticizing in crass terms the POTUS. She also broke tradition in publicly criticizing our Constitution and the government and nation it created.

    Too bad we have too many backstabbers in the senate. Romney, Collins, Murkowski are 3 guaranteed votes against. That means they just need to peel off one more. With the likes of Gardner, Sasse, Tillis and the rest, I don’t think McConnell can twist enough arms to get anything through.

    I still think Trump should at least try to nominate someone and let democrats make fools of themselves like with Kavanaugh

    I think this is a good thing because it can help dampen coronavirus as a campaign issue and take oxygen out of COVID narratives. If the democrats try to make this election about abortion and women’s rights instead of COVID I will take that trade every time.

          please explain how making nice talk to people you’ve never met..do not know..on a rather tight website… that they will never read is useful.

          maybe I’m just too logical to understand how any of this can work.

          bear in mind I’m also the same dude who gets irritated when some complete stranger “blesses me” after i sneeze…. seems to me its more about virtue signaling…

          maybe I’ve got it all wrong…

          Which is thankfully why people can rest on Christ’s righteousness and not their own, and accept that as sufficient with Him as their savior.

          Ephesians 2:4-10 “But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, made us alive with Christ even we being dead in trespasses—by grace you are saved— and He raised us up together and seated us together in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you are saved through faith, and this not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

The passing of any person is sad, b/c they can’t do any better than what they’ve already done. For some, that’s less sad than it is for RBG.

    Retired Magistrate here: She certainly lived a lot longer than I thought she would with all of her medical problems. I did not agree with most of her decisions and felt that she thought that the Constitution was just a suggestion. I remember several cases where she looked to other countries and what their legislation set forth with regard to certain issues; not what she was appointed to do which was uphold the Constitution. She certainly had her own agenda and she went forward with it all the time she was on the bench.

    Now, she will have to answer to the ultimate JUDGE. Don’t know whether she will rest in peace or not; only GOD knows.

            The real question is whether Cruz recognizes that he can make a bigger impact on this country as a Justice as opposed to POTUS (we know this is what he ultimately wants, but I’m not sure he could win). As Justice , he could have a lifelong impact on our future. ( I firmly believe he’s a Constitutionalist and a great pick for SC).

          I was thinking Cruz myself. I sure didn’t want him as president, but he could actually be a really good Supreme, I think. The question is, though, would he have to abstain from the confirmation vote? Hmm…

            Crud…..he could have to abstain. OR…he could be totally cheeky and say “heck,yeah, I’m voting for myself!” (which would make the American peeps love him even more!)

    Lindsey Graham is in his closest election ever here in SC. Look for him to go gung-ho to get Trump’s nominee through. It puts him in the spotlight and gives him headwinds with the Republicans in SC who are totally disgusted with him. (like me)

        I wonder, truly, not being sarcastic, if our believing someone’s actions are opposed to the law of God, example: killing, in this case innocent unborn babies, is something we’re supposed to not ‘judge’ lest we be judged. This always confuses me.

          Congratulations on being a “new nonna again!” I’m so very jealous!

          I think “judge not..” means that none of us are in a position to damn another soul. God knows every single one of His “lost” sheep and only He can see -and judge- what a person holds in their heart.

          This does not mean we cannot condemn the *actions* of another. As a society we can, and should, mete out punishment to fit the crimes against humanity.

          But, even as we carry out our duty to society as a whole, we condemn the actions without condemning the people who commit those actions.

          We should in fact pray for all His lost sheep to find their way back to Him. In doing so we lift up our hearts to a merciful God. Christians can hate the sin, but love the sinner enough to pray for lost souls to become right with God.

            First, thank you!! It’s wonderful and we’re very blessed. 🙏🏼

            So, thank you, Judith, for the solid response. I read here many expressing condolences to her family and wishes for her to Rest In Peace, as I did, who also say pretty much what you answered me.

            Your answer just made it a bit clearer to me. I certainly don’t think of myself any better than anyone else, but I do condemn evil when I see it. I was beginning to think that made me someone God would judge for judging others’ evil actions.

            I find I do judge the sin (evil) especially when it’s against another, but I do pray for our Lord’s mercy. On us and the whole world.

            Thank you for responding. I appreciate it. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

    I do hope she rests in peace, according to the grace and forgiveness offered by Jesus Christ for those who look to him as the redeemer of their sins. No one is all bad or all good and all are capable of contributing both good and evil to the world (knowingly or unknowingly). I have to be honest, though, that I look at her with great sadness in that she was a staunch advocate of “abortion rights” and I cannot help but think of all of God’s creatures murdered in the name of such “rights.” May God have mercy on her soul.

        Yes, I agree, we all are in a state of total depravity. In other words we can do no good of ourselves and cannot achieve our own salvation. However, even enemies of God (such as us) can be used to achieve good and to accomplish his will. Even Pontius Pilate was an instrument of God, as attested to by Christ. He did bad but what he did was in accordance with God’s plans and permission. Does that make sense? Not in human terms. But what is important is that we are told our salvation is entirely based on Christ and His redeeming act of sacrifice and grace toward us. Our recognition of such is enabled through the gift of faith we have been given through the Holy Spirit (via Baptism and the Word and Sacraments) and is evidenced by our repentance of our sins and our acts of faith. Did RBG recognize her need for Christ? I hope so. Did she repent of her sins? I most certainly hope so.

        I get it, truly. I’m not a big fan, but if you watch the movie with an open heart and mind, I think you will see that what I say is true. She and Marty did some good once upon a time. They were trailblazers in gender equality for a country that desperately needed it. Talk about the good ole’ boys club, it is on full display in this movie. Sadly, as a Supreme, she let her country down too often.

        I will let her maker be the her judge, and I will be victorious in the knowledge that WE get to replace her, at the hands of our chosen one, President TRUMP! May he be wise and swift in his choice.

        P.S. I think it will be a woman. How will they tear down a woman when for the last 4 years they have built them up. What a conundrum they will have. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • I never understood the whole “let the American people decide” line when it came to replacing SC Justices in an election year. We decided 4 years ago to give President Trump the authority to nominate any SC replacements until his term was up. His term will not end until the next President is inaugurated. It is crucial to not have a 4-4 court, especially at such a critical time as stated previously, with the high probability of the election going to the SC.
