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)

    Have any of you scanned the lefty sites, twitter or any of these “post mortem” boards?
    They are hysterical in their grief.

    Some of the most outlandish “lamentations of the women” who will never again feel safe having an abortion to men whose femiinst ueterus(i? some seem to think there is more than one in females) are in permanent danger of being stripped out of them by conservatives.

    you can’t make this hysteria up.
    And I bet no less that 98% of them can name two thing RBG ever ruled on as SCOTUS.

    IMO the amount of leverage and blackmail pressure that is going to be exerted over the next 50 days is going to be through the roof.

    Every damning piece of personal information that these corrupt people have gathered and extracted from their illegal spying efforts such as the Hammer Program, the NSA Contractor Spying Program and the Congress IT Program during the years 2008-2017 will be used.

    No stone or blackmail opportunity will go unturned. Nothing will be out of bounds. Every marker will be called in.

    Now the good news.

    IMO the left always go to far and I expect that in their quest to use every ounce of blackmail pressure to stop PT with his SC nominee, that somebody is going to crack and say enough is enough and comes forward to Barr with proof and evidence of their never ending blackmail tactics.

    I expect it to be someone from Congress that finally steps forward and tells the truth how personal information has been leveraged for years to gain votes, positions, money and power by the left because…………

    NOBODY SPENDS 8-10 YEARS GATHERING DATA ON PEOPLE AND DOESN’T USE IT.

    Stay tuned!

    The Supreme Court agrees to hear about 100-150 of the more than 7,000 cases that it is asked to review each year.

    According to the Congressional Research Service, the average number of days from Nomination to Final Senate Vote since 1975 is 67 days (2.2 months), while the Median is 71 days (or 2.3 months). Some believe this is because Congress sees Justices as playing a more political role than in the past.

    Justice Sandra Day O’Connor was the First Female Appointed to the Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan, 19 August 1981 and Confirmed 21 September 1981 by a Vote of 99-0 in just 34 Days. Justice Ginsberg herself was Nominated and Confirmed in 43 Days from 22 June 1993 to 3 August 1993.

    The death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg leaves a vast hole in the SCOTUS. I’m sure every right winger is salivating at the possibility of Ted Cruz or Tom Cotton coming on board to overturn Roe v Wade. Overturning Roe v Wade is often the “single issue voter” issue for the right- I’m convinced most of them would vote for the devil if it meant overturning Roe.

    Here’s the kicker though: It will not stop with Roe. Griswold v Connecticut will be next, and overturning Roe will set that up beautifully. That’s what these men really want to erase: Griswold. If Griswold goes, ladies, there goes your birth control. Griswold is what allows for it, and these men who want to overturn Roe have ending birth control as their main goal. It’s never been about saving lives, just controlling women.

    After Griswold, there will go the woman’s right to vote. The Republican party has already had people advocating for women to be stripped of the right to vote. It will happen if the GOP gets its way. And a bunch of other protections for women will go too.

    What I’m saying is thanks a lot for bringing about the Handmaid’s Tale through your ignorance, rwnjs. “

    She (RBG) should have retired 4 years ago…BUT she was certain that the Beast would win & then she could retire & allow a Dem to fill the seat vacated. Ahh…But the Lord works in mysterious ways.

    You can be sure RBG suffered through her cancer but, nonetheless, was determined to NOT have Trump name her replacement…..So she suffers through “Russia Gate” & the Mueller fiasco only to find that Trump survives yat another brutal attack from the Left & actually gets stronger.

    So she suffers longer & this time believes that the Dems have Trump by the “nuts” & will impeach him…..NOT…..Another wasted cancerous suffering for the die hard Anti-Trumper.

    Then Biden “pops up” & she has renewed vigor. A savior to save her legacy & put a doppelganger in her seat….All she has to do is live past Nov. 3rd…..

    Talk about a complete waste of the final few years of her life. Time she could have spent with loved ones. Instead, her hatred of Trump overshadowed common sense & forced her to needlessly suffer far more than was necessary JUST to spite Trump & not permit him to name a replacement for her.

    l bet her family is “proud” of her for toughing it out & really sticking it to Trump….LOL The snarl on her face must have been worth millions to see as she fades away permanently with the image of Trump stuck first & foremost in her mind as she fades to black…..

    Almost 4 years of needless suffering all for naught as Trump prevailed yet again.

    Really stupid woman IMHO but I’ll say a prayer for her anyway…A very short one to be sure. Even idiots consumed by vile hatred deserve some small degree of sympathy.
