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)

    —————————————

    The late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said days before her death that her “most fervent wish” was that she not be replaced on the high court until a new president is sworn into the White House.

    “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” Ginsburg dictated in a statement to her granddaughter that was obtained by NPR.

    The GOP in Senate will not move on a nominee with people like Collins, Romney and Murkowski. It’s really sad. A once in a lifetime chance to straighten out the court and the GOP folds.

        This is where you have to make the following point that most women have not yet absorbed:

        It is already legal in NY to abortion a baby up to the moment of birth. Ending Roe won’t affect abortion in NY a bit.

        If NY can decide to let midwives abort a baby at 36 weeks, why shouldn’t Missouri have the power decide to decide differently?

        Women I know all assume no woman would knowingly abort an eight month old healthy fetus, much less possibly do it for profit (which btw wouldn’t be prosecuted in NY probably ). They don’t believe in the reality of evil.

      It is possible for there to be a “heads up” for family and close friends when someone is in hospice and still may have 1-2 weeks to live (I have been close to multiple cases like this in my extended family, where a hospice doctor or nurse took one of us aside and said quietly we may in the last week or two so gather family, though it may be hard to know with any precision of course). Such info is usually tightly held within the family, but given the stature of RBG and the Democrats wanting to alert their own “forces” to be ready, it is certainly possible that such info circulated quietly behind the scenes in DC in the past couple of weeks. It would not have stayed strictly among the Democrats if that were the case.

      My point is that it is quite possible that Trump and Rs got some heads-up without the bizarre scenario you suggest that she died before today. Only in Q-world do people assume immediately with no evidence that death notices are faked or manipulated, and every public figure is in on the scam.

        Mitch and the Decepticons are really the last ones.
        Exposure isn’t exactly the right word, as IF people have been paying attention, the constant underminig of PDJT, the seeding of his admin with embed traitors, the support for keeping the small group unaccountable, even the collusion with Obama for eight years is obvious.

        Its not like it is buried in some redacted classified document, they have done it, RIGHT IN FRONT of our own, lieing eyes.

      Hate to burst everyone’s bubble, but the appointment won’t take place before the election.
      Murkowski, Collins, and Romney will insure no vote will come to the floor. Politically, it might be better to wait anyway, because if judicial appointments was a good issue last time, it will be a stupendously great issue this time.
