Ruth Bader Ginsburg's final weeks have been described by friends and relatives, who told of her remarkable vigor, and their shock at her death on Friday. Ginsburg, who died at the age of 87, was still seeing family, exercising, listening to opera and working right up until her death. She even officiated at a wedding. Those who had been in touch with Ginsburg or her staff recently said she seemed to be coping with treatment for cancer and also making plans for events months away. Mary Hartnett, one of her two authorized biographers, visited Ginsburg in mid-August at her longtime home in the Watergate apartment

Yet another tiresome story on RBG superwoman. I wonder how many people will establish a vigil at her tomb to see if she rises from the dead on the third day.

She spent the last three years medicated into a semi-coma, which might explain her refusal to accept the fact that she was incapacitated and incapable of rational decision-making.

For such a supposedly intelligent woman she made a big mistake assuming HRC would be POTUS and then she could resign knowing Hillary would replace with a leftist, activist judge. God tends to work in mysterious ways.

As the saying goes, "You'll always have things in your in-box when you breathe your last." She never ever should have been elected to the SC, nor even nominated. She was a hack leftist ACLU lawyer who couldn't qualify for a justice of the peace position in Toad Suck, Arkansas. The leftist media cretins are slobbering all over her without giving ANY credence to the FIRST female Justice, Sandra Day O'Connor. Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg was an intellectual popcorn husk.

Pancreatic cancer is horrible!!!! Since she died of it, sadly she probably spent the last few weeks of her life in terrible pain, massively drugged to numb the pain, and probably in a coma most of the time. However, since they have spent the last few years painting her as some form of Super Woman, expect that to get a lot worse now!!!

Saint Ruthie. She managed to give women the right to commit murder and bragged about it. The blood of 65M babies is on her hands, which make her the most prolific murderer in the world and it was all done by manipulating the court. After all, why should men have to pay child support for their 2 seconds of pleasure? And why don't women just keep their legs shut?

Portland police declared yet another riot Tuesday night on the 83rd consecutive day of protests after a 200-strong mob of protesters torched the city's famous Multnomah Building. The group had marched to the county seat of government for the first time, smashing windows and sparking a blaze by pushing lit newspapers through the windows.

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — The Pine Gulch Fire burning north of Grand Junction has grown to 73,381 acres as of Friday morning, making it the fourth largest largest individual wildfire ever recorded in Colorado.

The week before I married on my family’s homestead in Alaska, we found out Sarah Palin had been picked to be Sen. John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate. This was big news for Alaska. Nearly everyone we knew was thrilled, even people who weren’t huge Palin fans. At the time, Palin was a popular governor who’d made a name for herself fighting a corrupt good ol’ boys system that had prevailed for too long in state politics. She was a Republican, but seen as a moderate who was willing to work with Democrats and take on powerful special interests, including the oil companies that held sway in the state capitol.

Two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee said they will not meet with Amy Coney Barrett -- President Trump’s pick to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court. Trump announced on Saturday evening that he intends to nominate Barrett to fill the vacancy on the nation’s highest court after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg last week. Democrats indicated that they will oppose Barrett’s nomination, citing her conservative credentials which they see as a threat to health care and abortion rights, while also arguing that it is too close to Election Day for Trump to nominate a justice.

If this is the most important election in decades, this is its most important moment. Thus far, this campaign has been a referendum on Trump; Tuesday’s debate will be one on Biden. Its outcome depends on which Biden shows up. Like all races with a president seeking re-election, this one has centered on the incumbent. Thanks to a hostile media and Trump’s aggressive use of social media, America has had plenty of material for judgement. Topping it off, 2020 has been an acutely tumultuous year: Beginning with an impeachment trial and now a contentious Supreme Court vacancy — with a pandemic, a recession, and nationwide violence in between.

Is anyone really surprised that Donald Trump’s tax affairs are opaque? Or that he is not as rich as he claims? Is it really all that horrifying that he has for years claimed business losses in order to offset his significant income tax liability? Does it appall us that the Trump family used a Delaware-based consulting group to pay themselves? Of course not. The New York Times’s big Trump tax files splash on Sunday is therefore something of a flop. It is well-timed — an election is fast-approaching and the story might give Biden a good attack line in the big TV debate on Tuesday night.
