Title: Supreme Court Justice RGB Dead At 87
Post by: msslave on September 19, 2020, 02:11:57 AM
One of the strongest voices for women's rights and a powerhouse in a small package, on the Supreme Court has scumbed to cancer.  She died Friday at her home in Washington.

https://www.startribune.com/supreme-court-justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-dies-at-87/572457952/

Her death and the vacancy it leaves on the Supreme Court will now add more fire to an already hot presidential campaign. Will Trump try to make an appointment and have it ratified by the Republicans in the Senate. Or, will he take the high road and leave the seat open until after the election, only six weeks away.

May this great woman rest in peace. This mess is no longer her problem. Judges are a special breed and Ms.Ginsburg was best in showing up and doing the job as it should be done.

I’m a bit embarrassed my first thoughts were selfishly based on my political beliefs and not for her family.

I saw this just before bed, but it was bothering me enough I woke in the night and read on my iPad.  I don’t know why I was surprised at how gleeful Bitch McConnell and crowd were at this sad news.  I’m sure they are not bothered by their hypocrisy at already planning to ram through a nominee.

Here’s my suggestion:

Merrick Garland or whoever President Joe Biden picks.

The stories of RGB's death this morning make me even sadder. There's so much talk about Trump making an appointment and ramrodding it through the Senate before the election.

What's missing is the story of this remarkable woman's life and her service to this country from her seat on the bench of the countries highest court.  Not to mention her career prior to her appointment to the Supreme Court.

The movie "On The Basis of Sex" documents her early fights for women's rights. A fight she continued on with, including her time as a justice on the Supreme Court.

Let us give thanks to this wonderful woman for her service to our country.

Will Trump try to make an appointment and have it ratified by the Republicans in the Senate. Or, will he take the high road and leave the seat open until after the election, only six weeks away.


That shipped has already sailed. Trump had already prepared two lists of potential nominees, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced, before Justice Ginsberg's body was even cold, that the Senate will vote on Trump's nomination.

The irony, of course, is that when President Obama nominated Merrick Garland to replace the recently deceased Antonin Scalia on March 16, 2016, McConnell proclaimed that it was too close to the upcoming election. As McConnell put it at the time:

"The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president."

That was almost none months before the 2016 presidential election. Yesterday, barely six weeks before the 2020 presidential election, McConnell seems to have forgotten what he said four years ago, believing that "the American people" should not "have a choice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice."

The challenge is simply this: McConnell's gross hypocrisy, and his blatantly politicizing the Supreme Court nomination and approval process, are irrelevant. Trump has a list of vetted nominees, he will very likely announce one shortly, and the GOP holds the majority in both the Senate Judiciary Committee and the full Senate. On top of that, he has more than three months to fulfill this Constitutional process, since the new Senate doesn't sit until January 3, 2021, and the GOP will retain its majorities until that time.

   We all agree with JoE Biden, and his statement that the Voter should choose the President, then the President should choose the nominee, and the Senate should decide, if the nominee becomes the Justice.

   The Voters chose President Trump to be our President. President Trump will be in office until at least January 20, 2021, and there is plenty of time for his Nominee to be vetted in the Senate.

   Tomorow will be September 20, 2020, with a minimum of 4 months remaining in the current Presidential term. I believe JoE Biden noted it can take from 59 days to 79 days for the Senate to decide on a nominee, well within the 4 remaining months, in this term.

This all true, but what of fairness? Obama had eight months left in his term when he nominated Merrick Garland, only to have his nomination blocked by the Republican senate. Are we looking forward to a future where we just don’t replace Supreme Court justices if the president and the senate are opposite parties?

FAIRNESS?  In this day and age of politics fairness is not a viable concept.  Each party will dig in and fight for their agenda regardless of what may be best for the country as a whole.  Maybe if Senator Harry Reid (Nov 2013 on judicial branch and federal branch nominations) had not used the nuclear option and went with the simple majority instead of keeping with 60 votes then maybe things could have turned out differently.  But FAIRNESS is no longer a factor

  Fairness is not a part of the equation, not in the main, anyway.

  Elected Senators will decide their obligations, by their votes.

  Constitutionality is the factor all must respect, whether the public face is 'the Biden Rule', or some other Senate Rule of the past.

  The Voters choose a President; The President makes a Nomination;
The Senate gives Advice and Consent.

  One President at a time.

For argument's sake, let's say that the most Fascist of Trump's nominees is seated to the Supreme Court.  The first thing the new court does is overturn any rulings that have anything to do with women's rights, including Roe v Wade, but they go further than that -- they declare sperm and unfertilized eggs human life.  A woman who has her period without trying to save her unfertilized egg via conception can be forced to marry ...

Joan is identified as such a woman.  She marries Steve Bannon and must give up her wanton lesbian ways to staisfy Steve'e lust (and save his sperm) and produce baby after baby until she realizes she should have stood up for women's rights by being a liberal.

  Local decision making, so Voters have a say in maintaining or making a change in their local/State lawmakers, and law enforcement decisions, is not too high a standard for all to have.

  Is Life, LIFE?

  If it is, then that LIFE has certain RIGHTS...

  Just as some Statuary not longer has the same relevance and respect, in our current time, so also some SCOTUS rulings, which overrode State Law when originally imposed nationwide, need attention, clarification, and tearing down, as may be warranted in our current time, as have past SCOTUS imposed nationwide "laws" at times.

its his responsibility to get someone in there before the election and extremely important now since hillary and other democrats have publicly stated they don't want Biden to accept the results of the election !
having an even number of members on the court going into this election ( that democrats have already declared contested ) is a disaster waiting to happen, a "constitutional disaster"

for the good of our country lets all pray democrats and republicans work together like adults and do their job to get an odd number of supreme court members in place-BEFORE this election.

  Presumption that any Justice, new, old or whatever, will cast votes in cases before the court, now and in the future, that are counter to the U.S. Constitution, is a sad thing to see.

  SCOTUS has before erred about Constitutionality in cases before it, and has later addressed such issues, seeking to bring Constitutionality back for all. One can, may, expect such History to repeat itself, I hope.

  The law as it is today, for every issue as it is today, can be expected to be challenged, by every side, based upon it's Constitutionality. Found wanting, the law as it is today is due for 'right sizing', and when found to be indeed Constitutional, then the Court should be out of the picture.

  Congress is the place to address bad law, and needed law, not the Courts, and SCOTUS can be expected to 'right size' the law, when Courts have unjustly imposed unconstitutional mandates.

hillary and other democrats have publicly stated they don't want Biden to accept the results of the election !


Hillary Clinton said nothing of the sort. She recommended that Biden not concede the election if the results are very close. Her exact words were:

Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually I do believe he will win if we don't give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is.

It's worth noting Hillary Clinton is a private citizen, and she holds no public office. In this context, here opinion affects the political process as much as yours or mine.

for the good of our country lets all pray democrats and republicans work together like adults and do their job to get an odd number of supreme court members in place-BEFORE this election.


As I noted, not a single Democrat has already declared the 2016 presidential election contested. And while this type of fear-mongering has been very common on the Right for the past few months, the Democrats are aware that declaring election results "contested" before the election takes place is very silly.

There have many times in our history when the Supreme Court has had an even number of justices. For example, between February 13, 2016, when Scalia died, and April 10, 2017 when Gorsuch took his seat on the bench, the SCOTUS operated for 14 months with only 8 justices.

Nor will having an even number of justices after this election matter in the least. Even a basic understanding of how the Supreme Court works shows that the Supreme Court rules only on cases that are appealed to it, and when there is an even number of justices and they vote in a 4-4 tie, the ruling of the lower court stands. Again, this has happened hundreds of times throughout U.S. history, and it has never once proven to be a "constitutional disaster."

OK....
Hillary Clinton said  'Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances'  because I think this is going to drag out..(or she is hoping it will "drag out" and what exactly does "drag out" mean?--perhaps a long legal battle going all the way to the supreme court ? DOH!
i have seen many democrats and "news" anchors talking the same line...so whatever.

" Hillary Clinton is a private citizen so  her opinion affects the political process as much as yours or mine" ...really?  people put me and you in the same category as her speaking on national TV ?
..do you really believe that, or...?

"There have many times in our history when the Supreme Court has had an even number of justices"
..so what does that have to do with having a contested election while we have an even number of justices?,nothing, ...and under the present political climate ?..nothing.

"Even a basic understanding of how the Supreme Court works shows that the Supreme Court rules only on cases that are appealed to it"
...so you are saying there is no way democrats would ever appeal to the supreme court in an attempt to win an election?...or "drag it out" as they say...

 this has happened hundreds of times throughout U.S. history, and it has never once proven to be a "constitutional disaster."

I doubt anything associated with democrats right now has ever happened in the history of the united states. we have never had such hatred expressed in such a public manner or seen the media acting on behalf or one party or the other so blatantly while pretending to be "news".

no we have never ever had a contested election between trump and joe biden in this political climate while only having an even number of justices.

i wont even go into the california 9th district decisions when it comes to lower courts...

 "Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances!... because I think this is going to drag out,... and eventually,... I do believe we will win if we don't give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is. "

I didn't see anything about "very close" sounds to me like she was saying don't accept the election results under any circumstances. and make it drag out and drag the American people thru more years of democratic conspiracy theories and legal battles and drama hell regardless of how much it hurts our country and causes division. ..but cloaking it in some reasonable sounding sound bytes.

and what does she mean by " focused and relentless as the other side is" ?
what "other side" I thought we're all on the American side..and if she was referring to republicans as "other side" what exactly have they been  "relentless" about?

they seem to be just doing the usual boring job of running the country and such like politicians have always done, that's why nobody watched c-span.

Ever presidential election in U.S. history (except for two) have been "contested elections." I'm not sure how the 2020 presidential election will be any different. It is highly contested. You've yet to provide even a single reason why the current composition of the Supreme Court even slightly relates to that fact, or even why the Supreme Court will play a role in the election.

That statement manifests an ignorance of American history in general, and an ignorance of the history of U.S. presidential elections in particular.

There have been countless times in our history where "we have had such hatred expressed in such a public manner," and equally as many times where "the media acted on behalf or one party or the other so blatantly."




we have never ever had a contested election between trump and joe biden in this political climate while only having an even number of justices.


That statement is undeniably true. It's aggressively irrelevant.

And, again, you've yet to explain why the fact that there is currently an even number f justices on the Court is even tangentially relevant.
