Guess they finally decided to give up and stop trying to hide it.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the enigmatic, longtime Supreme Court justice who attained near cult-like status among progressive circles, died Friday at the age of 87 from complications surrounding metastatic pancreatic cancer.
The late Supreme Court justice, who spent more than two decades on the bench in the highest court of the land, is survived by her two children, Jane Carol and James Steven Ginsburg.
Ginsburg, who was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1993 by President Bill Clinton, was known for her soft-spoken demeanor that masked an analytical mind, a deep concern for the rights of every American and a commitment to upholding the Constitution.
Riiiiight.The above maudlin applesauce was excreted by formerly “fair and balanced” Fox News, just in case anybody out there was still cherishing any cozy illusions about what they’ve morphed into. This, also, is pretty amusing:
Justice Ginsburg dictated a statement before her death: "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed." https://t.co/XLzhPiLSng

Sure thing there, Roof. I’ll just let Ace dispense with that unsubtle chicanery.
This leftist hack stayed on the court despite being in a dying state, just to run out the clock, and now she demands that her corpse also be counted as living for purposes of running out the clock still further?
There are now reports that she’s been dying for weeks but rather than give the Administration a heads up, she concealed it, again, to keep the seat for a leftist.
But now Trump is supposed to help this nasty partisan achieve her mission to thwart him? To advance her partisan politics?
Are you kidding me?
Actually, I might have been fine with that, back in the long-gone days before the Left entire had brazenly broadcast their intention to reject the election results no matter what and attempt an outright coup—a hard coup this time, unlike the last several outragous but failed cracks at a more “soft” one.
But now, after the escalating lunacy we’ve seen? Fuck no. No way in hell. Shitlibs and their organized-crime syndicate masquerading as a legitimate political party having unequivocally renounced any and all pretense to civility, respect for the rule of law and the peaceful transition of power, and the right of their hated opposition to a say in their own governance, there’s now way, WAY too much at stake for Real Americans to even dream of continuing to treat with them as if they were either honorable or our countrymen. It’s like this:
30m The Court must be at a full compliment should any election disputes such as Bush v Gore occur.
Perzackly. And the Dems have no one but themselves to blame here. They’re the ones who have made clear as crystal that “election disputes” are no longer merely remote possibility, idle speculation, silly conspiracy-mongering, or the wild surmise of bug-eyed paranoiacs. They’re a sure thing, a dead cert, a guarantee written in blood for all to see by America That Was’s most dangerous, fanatical enemies. A replay of the Bush-Gore dumpster fire is the best-case scenario at this point, the absolutely most-positive outcome saner sorts can hope for. Sad as that is, for all of us.
Update! Joe Hoft underscores the point.
With this election there are already expected Democrat actions to steal the election through voter fraud and other yet unknown tactics. With the Democrats attempting to steal this election, the make up of the court is very important. An additional justice who rules based on the law will prevent Democrats from stealing this election through unconstitutional and corrupt actions.
It’s time to get the Supreme Court back to interpreting the law and not making the law.
This is why the now vacant Supreme Court Justice position should be replaced as soon as possible.
Said a mouthful there, buddy.
Trouble, trouble, troubling update! I agree with him completely. I also think he’s missing the bigger-picture point completely.
I don’t want to hear conservatives suggesting the fair thing to do is to wait until after the election to fill RGB’s seat because of Merrick Garland or any other lame excuse. Sure, we could give them mercy and pat ourselves on the back for taking the high road, but we shouldn’t. We should not relent or give the Democrats any mercy because they have not, and will not, return the favor.
The people of Minneapolis, New York, Portland, Seattle, and many other cities didn’t receive mercy when Democrat activists destroyed their communities and businesses. Small business owners didn’t receive mercy when left-wing politicians shut them down to hurt Trump. For years, Republicans have been mercilessly attacked for sporting Trump clothing or putting Trump signs on their property. Sports fans begging the NFL not to ruin football haven’t received any mercy from being inundated with social justice propaganda during the game. Kyle Rittenhouse and the McCloskey’s are fighting absurd litigation against Democrat tyrants for defending themselves against violent leftist mobs. They know the charges won’t stick, but they are attempting to punish those who resist the left anyways. A party that celebrates the death of Conservatives is devoid of mercy.
I am not suggesting Republicans cheat or break the rules. What I am suggesting is conservatives should reciprocate the mercilessness the left has for Republicans by moving forward with filling RGB’s SCOTUS seat. When Democrats have an opportunity to advance their causes, they take it — always. Conservatives should do the same.
We should not give Democrats more motivation to steal the election via voter fraud and endless post-election litigation by upping the stakes with a SCOTUS seat. The best course of action is to ease the tension by replacing RGB with a new judge pronto. The outrage that follows will be nothing new.
Nothing new? Of course it won’t be. NONE of the recent horrid madness is really anything new. It’s more a matter of degree, of the intensity burning behind it, and that’s all. The flame itself remains the same.
Folks, the situation for every Real American just got worse—orders of magnitude worse. The maniacal frenzy RGB’s death will surely ignite among the Progs is going to be nothing short of staggering, completely beyond belief. Perhaps the most dangerous aspect will be the likelihood that, having been demoralized and enervated by the pathetic, transparently fraudulent Cadaver Joe’s aimless campaign until now, the Left’s apathetic torpor will now be blown to smithereens; with the terrifying specter of another Trump SC appointment looming, they’ll now be motivated in the extreme to go to the polls, rather than just throwing up their hands in despair and giving Election Day a miss.
Lang might recoil from suggesting that the Repubs “cheat or break the rules,” but I damned sure won’t. This election was for the all marbles already, as I’ve said repeatedly. With this unwelcome and supremely untimely development, if the Repubs don’t now resolve to cast all else aside and use any and every tool in the shed, fair or foul, in order to win this thing and win it big, whatever thin scrim remaining of America That Was will well and truly be lost forever, blown away on the most ill of winds.
The stakes, historically high before, have just been raised dramatically. But already, there are clear indications that the usual RINO suspects either don’t see our mortal peril, or just don’t give a damn. As for bending the knee to the nauseating canonization of RGB herself, straight to hell with that revisionist bushwa.
Unlike me, the usual leftists who loved her too much (as well as a few Republicans who ought to know better) think that the best encomium for Ginsburg is that she “fought” for “justice and equality”…
That praise — that she “fought” for “justice and equality” — sums up everything that was wrong with Ginsburg for it describes a political activist, not a judge. The Supreme Court is supposed to consist of nine people who try, apolitically, to ensure that the United States is run along constitutional lines.
Ginsburg, though, had little love for the Constitution. She was quite open about that in 2012 when she offered some “helpful” advice to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as it was contemplating the Egyptian Constitution of 2012:
“I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012,” Ginsburg said in an interview on Al Hayat television last Wednesday.
Of course you wouldn’t, you scurrilous cretin. Hell, you never looked to it even once; like all Progtards, you spent all your time and effort on looking for ways around it.
“I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, have an independent judiciary. It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done.”
The South African Constitution does not promote a small government for free people who possess inherent rights that must be free from political interference. Instead, it’s a micromanaging monstrosity that identifies “rights” (some copied from us), that are, in fact, privileges subject to the political winds.
Ginsburg was also an awful judge. A good Supreme Court opinion, like a solid house, is built on a constitutional foundation, with the materials coming from clear and strong precedent and law. Ginsburg’s opinions, especially when she was pushing political ends, were composed of random bits and pieces of law that could be cobbled together to make a rough shack. She and her clerks hid this shoddy construction in muddy and muddled writing surrounded by myriad case citations that were never entirely on point.
That Ginsburg saw her role as political was shown by the fact that, even on her deathbed, she tried to manipulate Trump’s constitutional authority to nominate a new Supreme Court justice. In that vein, it’s worth remembering that she abandoned judicial impartiality and interfered in the election by using her enormous popularity to speak against Trump.
So at last, it’s adios and good fucking riddance to one Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the most atrocious anti-Constitution snakes-in-the-grass ever to disgrace the US Supreme Court. May the withered crone burn in Hell for a thousand years.
Sucks to be them update! Thank the good Lord for arrogance, all-thumbed blunders, and just-plain-stupid lack of foresight.
‘Notorious RBG’ made a serious miscalculation by not retiring during the Obama years. If she had, there probably would be a much younger jurist holding the line for the liberal wing of the Supreme Court right now. No hassle. Alas, that didn’t happen, and for all these liberals who are going ballistic—this battle was really RBG’s choosing. I think she, like many, thought Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election. She would then ride off into the sunset and that would be it. Instead, Trump won arguably the biggest political upsets of all time, certainly within the last generation, and got stuck. It’s an unpopular opinion among liberal circles for sure, maybe more agree but keep it to themselves. Still, the meltdown is popcorn worthy.
It won’t stay that way for long; our time to sit back, relax, and just savor the amusement will be short-lived. The fuse is now well and truly lit; matters are about get very, very serious indeed, and nobody is going to like it.
Kudos update! As POTUS and all, Trump has to speak very judiciously at times like this, which has never been exactly his greatest strength. So the uncharacteristic restraint of his spontaneous, off-the-cuff reaction could come as something of a surprise.
President Donald Trump was wrapping up a Minnesota rally when news broke of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death Friday night sending shockwaves through the nation and promising to intensify an already tense campaign under a contentious election facing an historic level of cultural unrest.
“Ruth Bader Ginsburg just died,” a reporter told the president as he prepared to board Air Force One.
“She just died? Wow. I didn’t know that. You’re telling me now for the first time,” Trump said while “Tiny Dancer” played on the surrounding speakers at the rally.
“She led an amazing life. What else can you say? She was an amazing woman, whether you agreed or not, she was an amazing woman who led an amazing life. I am sad to hear that,” he said.
Pure class, of a sort the Left seems to be quite proud of being wholly incapable.
Mostly peaceful update! Burn baby burn.
(CNN) Ruth Bader Ginsburg, champion of abortion rights who died on Friday is enjoying a fiery but mostly peaceful afterlife, the court said.
Ginsburg, a lifelong champion of killing babies before they had a chance to breathe and a fierce advocate for gender equality, died “surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer.”
Despite her diminutive stature, Ginsburg held many firsts for the court. Many people didn’t know that not only was Ginsburg the first woman to sit on the Supreme Court (appointed in 1876), but she was also the first gay Latinx to preside over the important branch. She was also the first Supreme Court justice to win a rap battle, beating Eminem in 2003 under the pseudonym Notorious RBG.
A CNN report concluded that Hell is 93% peaceful and only 7% of the underworld consists of fiery butt rape.
“It’s really not that bad here,” Ginsburg said as a frozen fire engulfed her face. “The people are actually nicer than people in Washington and there are two Starbucks on every corner!”
Actually, the people probably ARE nicer at that.
