Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dies at 87

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 9/18/2020 7:44:57 PM

WASHINGTON — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday of “complications of metastatic pancreas cancer,” the Supreme Court announced.“Our nation has lost a jurist of historic stature,” Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said in a statement. “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.” The development will give President Trump the opportunity to name her replacement, and Senate Republicans have promised to try to fill the vacancy even in the waning days of his first term.

"A jurist of historic stature"? That means she was very short, right?

But, but, they said she was doing great after her 3,254th time in critical care... I'll bet Obama is p^ssed at her for waiting until Hillary became president, oh wait. Hillary never became president. Now, oh my, Trump, the Orange, gets to appoint a successor. Watch the streets erupt with riots and the Democrats erupt with screams, pulling of hair, and gnashing of teeth.

Have no fear fellow Conservatives. Romney and Sass and at least one other RINO will stop any appointment. They see a chance to further their chances to become a thorn in the side of Trump and enhance their position in the Demo-rat party when they jump the Repub. ship.

May she Rest In Peace. The pundits will show respect but we’re all thinking the same thing. How will DJT play this court opening? They’ve known all along that this could happen at any time so I’m sure there is a plan ready to go after a respectable period of mourning. I’m guessing DJT will go for it and nominate someone next week. This has just changed the campaign beyond anyone’s expectation.

Amy Coney Barrett would be a great replacement, but the votes may not be there -- a handful of RINOs could block the nomination. If that is the reality, does Trump quickly nominate a middle-of-the-roader who can be confirmed (and who in any event would be far better than Ginsburg) or take his chances on the election. Trump could win big and increase the GOP Senate majority with his coattails, making a Barrett confirmation likely. But the GOP could also lose the Presidency and the Senate, in which case "Biden" would nominate a Ginsburg-like replacement.

Puts Chief Just-Us Roberts in a pickle. What if the court is 4-4 on the election. He knows that would be hell on the country and he has no character or integrity. Ruthie's death is tragedy to her family. But an opportunity for the live blood of this country. The dem frothing at the mouth faithful will vote as they already will vote. The vast majority of voters will not care. Use this gift from the legal deities. This isn't about an evil woman that has died. This is about our country.

If PDT doesn't immediately appoint a replacement and somehow loses the election, this would be one of the biggest political disasters in the history of our Republic. He has to replace her before Nov 3rd. There is no other option. All others spell nothing but disaster. If he were somehow to lose the election and leave this appointment up to Hidin' and the Kamel; it would be unforgivable.

Amy Coney Barrett would be an excellent pick, somebody who would be the least likely person to turn into a liberal squish after being appointed. Unlike Biden, she is a real Catholic with solid conservative principles. And as a woman, Camel-a Harris wouldn’t be able to accuse her of being a gang rapist when grandstanding during the Judiciary Committee hearing. And, finally, Trump can say Barrett was his second choice last time and thoroughly vetted, so the committee hearing can start now. I can’t wait to see all the Dem and Dem-press heads explode. MAGA!

Her refusal to retire because she did not want Trump to name her successor was a blatantly political act. She was very likely unable to perform her duties for quite some time. Trump's announcement of his potential replacements this past week was not happenstance.

Why are so many people saying he needs to have someone/anyone confirmed by November 3rd? Oh, yee of little faith and weak constitutions. It would be great if he seats Amy Coney Barrett, but I don't want a moderate that can get confirmed just to get it done in this term. That's not why I voted for the president. I want a fire-breathing Constitutionalist to replace the fire-breathing Socialist RBG. Dig in your heels, because the Tsunami is coming. Besides, if the Marxists win it doesn't really matter, because the Marxists will expand the SC to 12 justices as FDR tried to do and stack the court.

Dinesh D’Souza has become the master of the conservative political documentary film genre, starting with his first offering, “2016: Obama’s America,” which examined the roots of then-President Barack Obama’s desire to fundamentally transform the United States. Obama, D’Souza argued, saw the U.S. as fundamentally unjust, particularly in matters of race and wealth distribution. “Trump Card,” the fifth of D’Souza’s films, picks up in a sense where “Obama’s America” ended, but this time the enemy is the “deep state” and the democratic socialists.

According to President Trump, the very survival of the American economy is at stake this election.

The sudden death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has put a sharper edge on the point: this is a culture war that must be won.In a speech at the National Archives on Constitution Day, President Trump put things in the starkest terms possible: America is facing a leftist insurrection that rejects the American Founding.

Unless you’re elderly or particularly vulnerable, you shouldn’t be wearing a mask all day, or shaming others for going unmasked.

Trump has had a fraught relationship with members of John McCain's family since he disparaged the Arizona senator during his 2016 campaign. But the McCains have until now stopped short of endorsing Trump's rivals. Cindy McCain cited the decades long friendship between her family and Biden's and their bond as the parents of children serving in the military. “He supports the troops and knows what it means for someone who has served.”

CNN host Don Lemon proposed radically changing the U.S. political system to take power away from the "minority" vote in the country. During the hand-off before his show Monday night, Lemon debated fellow network host Chris Cuomo by arguing Democrats should push to eliminate the Electoral College, which would require a constitutional amendment. Lemon said such a feat was possible if Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden wins the presidency and Democrats "stack the courts." "Until you have a group of people that decide to consistently be better than what they reject, you’re going to have people in the exact position

Donald Trump has outsourced his Middle East policy to his son-in-law Jared Kushner. At best, it would be a waste of time, as Kushner had no experience in foreign policy. At worst, he will use this opportunity to line his own pockets. That was one of the many lines of attacks waged by the mainstream media on President Trump. Why is amateur Kushner in the White House at all, they asked indignantly? Then something unexpected happened: The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain announced peace deals with Israel. This good news for the world was bad news for the media.

“Mean Girls” actor Jonathan Bennett will star in Hallmark’s first LGBTQ-themed holiday movie, “The Christmas House,” the network announced Wednesday. About two months ago, the Hallmark Channel announced that its 2020 holiday movie selection would include LGBTQ storylines, characters and actors. Now, the television cable channel is making good on its promise. “Our holiday table is bigger and more welcoming than ever,” Michelle Vicary, the executive VP of programming at Crown Media, Hallmark’s parent company, said Wednesday. “This year’s movies reflect our most diverse representation of talent, narratives, and families, including ‘The Christmas House’, featuring a storyline about a gay couple looking to adopt their first child,

Actress and 'Defund the police' activist Alyssa Milano was quick to call cops when she believed an armed gunman was on her Bell Canyon property on Sunday morning. The call ignited a response that included seven Ventura County Sheriffs' vehicles, one K-9 unit, a police helicopter and one Los Angeles Fire Department team that sat down the street on standby. (Snip) Alyssa Milano's gate sat open with law enforcement guarding the entire perimeter of the street, as these photos show. The search by air and street level lasted over three hours and ended abruptly at

Seattle now has on its payroll a convicted pimp who once vowed to “go to war” with the city—a $150,000 “street czar” whose mission is to come up with “alternatives to policing,” reports said. Andre Taylor—who appeared in the documentary “American Pimp” about his life as “Gorgeous Dre”—is getting $12,500 per month for a year, along with an office in Seattle’s Municipal Tower, according to the contract published by PubliCola. It comes just a year after his organization, Not This Time, was paid $100,000 to sponsor a speaker series that was called “Conversations with the Streets.” Taylor led one of the first rallies in Seattle

Mars Inc. has renamed its Uncle Ben’s rice products “Ben’s Original,” making it the latest food producer to ditch a brand steeped in racist imagery. The Virginia-based company is also scrapping the portrait of a white-haired black man that has adorned its rice boxes for decades—an image that’s long been criticized as a racist stereotype. “We’re still in the process of deciding on what our new iconography will be, but are committed to ensuring that it will be truly reflective of the inclusive future we are striving to create for Ben’s Original,” a Mars Food spokesperson said in a statement.
Will Biden Survive the First Debate? 29 replies

The first presidential debate is next Tuesday, and I don't see Biden surviving. His campaign has been playing "hide the Crypt-Keeper" since spring, occasionally proving to the public that he's still ticking by having him tussle with a teleprompter while "objective journalists" participate in make-believe interviews. Biden's cognitive decline is now so steep that he begins reading pre-written answers to pre-written questions, forgets what he's doing halfway through, and settles for stringing syllables together that sound English-y in a non–native speaker sort of way. He is a man forever in search of a thought but finding none

Wells Fargo chief executive Charles Scharf exasperated some black employees in a Zoom meeting this summer when he reiterated that the bank had trouble reaching diversity goals because there was not enough qualified minority talent, two participants told Reuters. He also made the assertion in a company-wide memo June 18 that announced diversity initiatives as nationwide protests broke out following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed African American man, in police custody. “While it might sound like an excuse, the unfortunate reality is that there is a very limited pool of black talent to recruit from,” Scharf said in the memo,
