Obama Statement on Ginsburg Demands GOP
Senate Honors Her Dying ‘Instructions’ and
Put Off Vote on Supreme Court Nominee
Until New President Sworn In

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 9/19/2020 5:45:28 AM

Former President Barack Obama issued a statement late Friday night on the passing of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The statement was posted to the online site Medium.In the statement, Obama demanded the Republican controlled Senate not vote on any replacement for Ginsburg until a new president is sworn following the November presidential election. Obama cited his failed 2016 nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to back up his support for Ginsburg’s reported dying “instructions” that her replacement be nominated by a new president (“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”)

Ginsburg’s supposed death bed comment was conveniently announced moments after she died. Fortunately neither she or Obama are in a position to demand anything.

Mr. Elections-Have-Consequences says this with a straight face. She should have retired and had BHO appoint a replacement but nooooooo. The author is correct - RBG bet on HRC and lost. Not Trumps problem

Elections have consequences, Obama. Hilary lost, the deep state lost and you lost. RBG bet on Hilary and lost. The republicans had better not roll over on this or they too will lose. May God have mercy on her soul.

If there was a Dem President, and a GOP Justice had died, there would be no waiting, and probably laughter at the deceased last deathbed wish.

So, she didn’t want to be replaced until 2025? That’s when a new president is installed. The Garland situation doesn’t apply here. The Biden rule says that a lame duck president late in his SECOND term should not be able to name a new justice. That was the case with Smidgen; it’s not the case with PDT. PDT will probably name a replacement today and tell McConnell to move it through at warp speed. The left will go insane and the hearings will rival Kavanaugh’s - which could also damage the demonrats for 11/3. Oh and, BTW Smidgen....ESAD. Illary lost. Elections have consequences.

After losing two parents, I suspect that RBG was not really lucid enough to issue this 'instruction'. The Senate is certainly under no obligation to follow it.

There are precedents for Ruthie's deathbed instructions. • When Felix Frankfurter died - - he instructed the court to change its robe color from black to aquamarine. • When Earl Warren died - - he instructed all the Justices to get Mohawk haircuts. Neither of these changes were enacted - - but they were given serious consideration. Ruthie deserves no less.

Can't wait to hear the news about Obama's dying wish. That day cannot come too soon for this evil, greedy, racist, communist monster cloaked in mortal flesh who has caused so much destruction, misery, and deaths as a wanna be dictator. As with all things regarding the democrat communists this purported Ginsberg "dying wish" is a damn lie. Ginsberg is dead and gone and her dying wish whatever it was has no value or merit or power. Right now Ginsberg's first task since entering Hell is to polish the seat reserved in Satan's domain for Obama. We are at war fellow citizens and no mercy should be shown to our mortal enemies, the democrat communists, until we have utterly defeated them. They will show no mercy to us if God forbid they win.

RBG could have retired when Obama was president and been replaced by his leftward choice of SCOTUS nominee. But she got greedy and wanted to serve until her death, and now upon her death she, from beyond the grave--and Obama--want her to be replaced by a leftist clone. Now on Trump's watch. And now Reza Aslan, Iranian radical, warns that they are going to blow the whole Massey Ferguson up if Trump nominates, say, Amy Coney Barrett. I'd say that's a warning. Be prepared. When you're carrying, make sure your gun is hot.

For goodness sake, san we deport him already? If there is one living President (and there are actually three of them) who needs to shut up, it's definitely him. I'm so tired of him existing as the fakery that he is and thinking we don't know any better. He's evil, unqualified, unaccomplished, annoying in the worst kind of way, and extremely unlikable. Everybody who speaks favorably of him has to lie. Does he have any friends? Since we can't name any, I'd venture that a NO. Nobody likes him; he's just a pawn, a tool, a field hand. Who cares what Ginsburg wished? She didn't own that seat on the court. She's dead; she has nothing more to contribute. Likewise, obama is no longer President (thank the Lord, hallelujah!) and nobody cares what he demands, so he can shut it too.

FTA: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” Of all people, SCOTUS Justices weigh their words very carefully. Often, their decisions rest on the importance of a single word. So what's this about "until a NEW President is installed?" If Trump is re-elected he would not be a NEW President, under any circumstances. She chose the words "new President" for a reason. It's her final middle-finger zinger.

The Constitution states that the President names a replacement. It doesn't say anything about waiting until after an election to do so. While Trump will be reelected, the dead don't get to have a say about who or when the replacement is nominated.

Hey Barry! Trump won! Sound familiar? You never listened to the Republicans. Not once. Why should PRESIDENT Trump listen to you and the rest of the traitorous Democrats? Now we know why Trump had put together a list of prospective appointments. Washington was on a deathwatch. We know how the Democrats will behave. They will try to delay as much as possible and use it as an election issue. Their media cronies will be in a frenzy. The ones to watch will be the Republicans. Some will try to break ranks (Romney). Or they will voice support for a Republican that is a closet Democrat.

Thurgood Marshall was much classier about leaving the court. He knew his health was declining (he lived just 1-1/2 more years) and had no 'deathbed demands' when he retired. He understood his seat on the Supreme Court was temporary and others would be appointment in accordance with the Constitution.

After Trump wins in a landslide he won’t be “new”, so we should leave the Supreme Court seat vacated for over four years until a new President comes along? You know, not long ago the GOChumps would have gone along with it. No more! (And you aren’t getting out lunch money by threatening to call us racists)

Obammie wasn't going to be allowed to nominate Merrick Garland for SCOTUS because he would NOT be re-elected as per term limits. Trump, on the other hand, MAY (and very likely will) be re-elected, and Obabie didn;t face a situation where the other side was plotting for years to steal the election by any means possible. 9 SCOTUS Justices are needed. Isn't it ironic that the need for 9 exists because the side complaining about it has caused the need in the first place with their violence and riots and threats?

There is no proof that Justice Ginsburg ever said this. And, nowhere in the U.S. Constitution are there any “instructions” that her replacement be nominated by a new president. However, it would be in keeping with here attitude that justices can rewrite the Constitution to support their political views.

RBG could have resigned when BO was president. She didn't. RBG was hoping Hillary would appoint her replacement. Oops. RBG could have resigned last year or earlier when her cancer came back. She has been the walking dead trying to outlast Trump. It didn't work. We are at this point BECAUSE of RBG's ego and political alliances. She deserves no consideration for trying to game the system. Beyond all that, I will LOVE to see the Left's angst when RBG is replaced by Amy Coney Barrett. It would be the most triumphant Conservative thing Trump accomplished in his first term. Let the schadenfreude flow. Consider it a Conservative "peaceful protest".

If RBG's dying wish was to have a Democrat president replace her, she should have quit the bench when she became infirm and incompetent unto death. Her undisputed personal wish to die on the bench has been fulfilled. Can't have your cake and eat it too. Further, I think we may disbelieve some granddaughter's claim of a death bed wish, which, without speaking ill of the dead, sounds way too complex for RBG to have uttered so eloquently and at length when she appeared to be virtually speechless in her final pubic appearances.

Ginsburg had her chance to retire during his administration (when she was already ailing, I will point out) and she chose to tough it out. Too bad. Bad judgment by the judge.

Picture a female jurist who has consistently defied social expectations imposed on women and whose legal thinking is closely bound up with her faith. No, I’m not talking about Amy Coney Barrett, reported to top President Trump’s list of candidates to fill the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat. I’m talking about Ginsburg herself.Ginsburg believed fervently that conventional expectations shouldn’t hinder women as they seek their full, fair share of public life. Nor was she shy about how her Jewish faith shaped her judicial mind. In an essay for the American Jewish Committee published in 1993, she wrote: “

The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg once said that ‘packing the courts’ is problematic and has said it is a bad idea when Democrats have done it in the past.Justice Ginsberg stated, “I have heard that there are some people on the Democratic side who would like to increase the number of judges. I think that was a bad idea when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried to pack the court. His plan was for every justice who stays on the court past the age of 70, the president would have authority to nominate another justice.

Speaking to reporters before heading to Ohio Monday afternoon, President Donald Trump said he prefers the Senate hold a vote on his Supreme Court nominee before the presidential election on November 3. He will announce his choice to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg later this week. “I’d much rather have a vote before the election because there’s a lot of work to be done, and I’d much rather have it. And we have plenty of time to do it. I mean, there’s really a lot of time,” Trump said. “So let’s say I make the announcement on Saturday, there’s a great deal of time before the election

Just when you thought Mitch McConnell couldn’t become anymore of a cult figure, The Washington Post decided to give him another nickname. (Tweet) Do they think that makes him look bad? Ok, maybe calling a man who somewhat resembles a turtle an “apex predator” is a bit much, but there’s no doubt he causes liberals to break out into cold sweats. Though he’s never been a hard line conservative on some policy issues, McConnell has always been a terror for the left when it comes to appointing judges. Now, he’s staring down his third appointment in just four years under President Donald Trump because of the passing

Outside of the friendly confines of Utah, Mitt Romney is not a very popular figure in the Republican Party just at the moment. His vote to convict President Donald Trump on one charge during the impeachment debacle cemented a severe distaste that most conservatives developed as a result of his Never Trump antics. Romney suffered those slings and arrows without much complaint, stating the reason he received so much ire is his principled conservatism. As Trump moves to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Romney’s principles should make him a yes.

During an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Pelosi, D-Calif., was asked whether she and House Democrats would move to impeach President Trump in an effort to stop his U.S. Supreme Court pick from being confirmed to the bench -- following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. “We have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now, but the fact is we have a big challenge in our country,” Pelosi said.

So, how was your weekend? The news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing on Friday certainly ratcheted up the 2020 crazy by several orders of magnitude, didn’t it? I was heading out to meet some friends when I saw the news on Twitter and my first thought was, “This might be the last time I can get out and have fun before ‘peaceful protests’ begin again.” The lefties wasted little time in confirming my suspicion that RBG’s death was going to do the seemingly impossible: make them even more unhinged.
