asked for Senate to
delay filling her seat

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 9/18/2020 9:01:03 PM

Conscious of politics to the last, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reportedly dictated a statement saying it was her “most fervent wish” that her seat on the Supreme Court not be filled until after the next president is inaugurated in January. Republicans are not likely to heed her wish. Days before her passing Friday, Justice Ginsburg dictated a statement to her granddaughter, Clara Spera, asking that the seat remain vacant into the new year, according to NPR: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

Not in her former job description. Amy Coney Bryant is the best choice and we need to rise up to support her, President Trump, and all Republican Senate candidates - but also take back the House too. This will bring people together - on the right - we must win this election to save this country.

LATE BREAKING NEWS: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg actually died on Wednesday and her chief doctor immediately filed a motion for summary judgment on her death but it was denied and the panel of doctors argued for two days until they reached a majority decision today, with several hold-outs filing a dissenting diagnosis saying the 87-year-old jurist is still “mostly alive.” The decision will be appealed.

The Constitution does not allow for Supreme Court Justices, alive or dead, to dictate the conditions for selecting their replacement. Justice Ginsberg certainly knew that.

How long did it take before Schumer 'demanded' that no replacement should be made until after the election? Of course, when President Trump wins, he'll be demanding that we wait because PDT is a lame duck President!

If true, this is a shocking political request from a Supreme Court Justice. Ginsburg should be impeached and removed if she were not already removed by death.

Democrats are n NO position to demand anything/ Trump was elected by the people, as were current members of the Senate. The Constitution gives Trump the unilateral power to nominate a replacement and gives the Senate the unilateral power to confirm (or not confirm) his nominee. Pretty simple and straightforward, isn't it?

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” A very telling statement. She did not state until after the inauguration or until after the election or even until the next president is elected. She said a "New" president as in not the current occupant, as in let my death mobilize the left to steal the election so Biden can replace me. Not your call Ruth.

What about the election in 2016? We voted Trump President for a 4 year term, not 3 years and 8 months, meaning Trump has 4 more months in his first term, plenty of time to replace Ginsburg. Trump or the Senate are under no obligation to sit on their hands for the next 4 months.

He had no more idea what he was saying than Ginsburg knew what she was saying. Its the hacks talking.

Sadly , we can count on Romney, Murkowski and Collins - and probably Graham to cave. It’s just as well because Trump at least has a 5-3 edge in the event the election needs to be decided by the Supreme Court- assuming Roberts doesn’t fold.

My guess is that RBG has been in a coma for several weeks and dictated nothing at all to her granddaughter. That statement, like all of Biden’s, was written by her staff and given to the granddaughter with orders to release it within minutes of Ruthie’s demise. A fraud in life and a fraud in death.

Wasn’t RBG the one who stated that it was the Senate’s duty to take up Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland in 2016 before Trump took office? As with everything in her jurisprudence, she had no objective standard for Supreme Court nominees—it all depended on time, place, and political party.

As the debate over what to do about the vacancy on the Supreme Court is only getting started, perhaps we should heed the advice of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg herself as to what to do. When a similar scenario occurred four years ago, following the death of Antonin Scalia, the Republican-controlled Senate blocked Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. It was a controversial move, and Ginsburg had something to say about it: Ginsburg publicly called on the Senate to go through with the nomination. “That’s their job,” she said in July 2016. “There’s nothing in the Constitution

As I wrote earlier this morning, the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a massive political firebomb going off (see A Republican Party That Won’t Fill Ginsburg’s Seat Will Die, and It Will Have Deserved Its Death). Tensions are high as the GOP now has to decide whether it’s going to fulfill the duty it was elected to fulfill. In political terms, there is no choice to be made here except nominating a replacement and voting on that nomination before the election. Whether some Republicans are smart enough to realize that is an open question.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the demure firebrand who in her 80s became a legal, cultural, and feminist icon has died. The Supreme Court announced her death, saying the cause was complications from cancer. Architect of the legal fight for women's rights in the 1970s, Ginsburg subsequently served 27 years on the nation's highest court, becoming its most prominent member. Her death will inevitably set in motion what promises to be a nasty and tumultuous political battle over who will succeed her, and it thrusts the Supreme Court vacancy into the spotlight of the presidential campaign.

Two weeks ago, Princeton University’s president, Christopher Eisgruber, issued a letter to the Princeton community in which he admitted that the institution he has run for seven years is plagued by “systemic racism.” This is quite an admission for a number of reasons.

When Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday evening, she did so with a message for posterity which, for all the history that Ginsburg might have made as a woman on the Supreme Court, was pristine in its self-description of her time on the Court. “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” she said.
