    Mazie Hirono told Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to "live forever" shortly after Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Hirono, who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, recalled in her forthcoming memoir, Heart of Fire, how a month after Senate Republicans confirmed Kavanaugh to the high court, the "troubled" Hirono sat herself next to Ginsburg at a dinner party and offered her regrets. "You have to live forever," Hirono whispered to Ginsburg, noting that she felt "some small comfort" as long as the octogenarian justice sat on the court. Ginsburg did not respond to Hirono's entreaty directly, only...

    President-elect Joe Biden named Ron Klain, a lawyer and former President Barack Obama’s “Ebola czar,” to serve as his White House chief of staff. “Ron has been invaluable to me over the many years that we have worked together, including as we rescued the American economy from one of the worst downturns in our history in 2009 and later overcame a daunting public health emergency in 2014,” Biden said in a Wednesday statement distributed by his transition team. ... Klain has additionally been extremely critical of President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. In March, he gave the federal...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D) warned that if the Senate confirmed Amy Coney Barrett's appointment to the US Supreme Court "generations yet unborn will suffer. Judge Barrett is inflexibly pro-life in her beliefs. I can't help fearing that somewhere down the road she will find some way to restrict a woman's God-given right to terminate the existence of her unborn child's life. Without access to the merciful option of preventing the live birth of her unwanted child, too many mothers will be forced into a life of servitude to a person who should never have existed. It doesn't take...

    A bronze statue of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be unveiled in her hometown next year.

Ginsburg, who died last month due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer, would have turned 88 on her next birthday. The statue was created by artists Gillie and Marc as a part of their "Statues for...

    I don’t remember where I was when my dad nominated Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court, but I do remember how I felt: very excited and a little surprised. This was 1993. I was thirteen years old. In elementary school, I had learned about Sandra Day O’Connor, who had been confirmed twelve years earlier as the first woman justice of the Supreme Court. But until Ruth Bader Ginsburg, I didn’t realize so many years had passed without there being a second. I was like this as a kid. I believed the world was fairer than it was. Which is...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Mourners gathered across the country this week to honor the life of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Outside the Supreme Court, fans of the late RBG conducted a stirring, emotional memorial ceremony that ended with a beautiful 21-Molotov Cocktail Salute. "This is our way of honoring our great progressive Justice Ginsburg," said part-time Antifa arsonist Ron Meechan. "We hope that she is watching us from above as we torch this 7-Eleven in her honor. Blessed be her name." Seven shabby figures then stumbled into a line as a nearby comrade played Lady Gaga's "I Was Born This Way" solemnly on...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) warned Trump to not fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of long-serving Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She went on to ironically claim that "the appointment of a successor who does not share the same perspective on abortion rights will signal that the Republicans are coming after our children." The reality is that during her time on the Court Ginsburg was a staunch opponent of any limitations on abortion. She helped steer the Court to strike down many state statutes that sought to limit the carnage wrought against the tiniest humans. Her replacement...

    President Donald Trump was greeted with boos and chants of "vote him out" as he attended the outdoor memorial service for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, visiting her casket at the Supreme Court on Thursday morning. Those who were waiting in line for their own chance to honor the justice who died Friday chanted as the president stood with first lady Melania Trump, both wearing masks, near Ginsburg's casket. Ginsburg became a feminist icon for many American women, beginning her career as an advocate for women's rights and then ascending to the court, where she was a voice for the rights...

"She found her stage right behind me, in our courtroom."              "Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of."- United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, quoted in Emily Bazelon, "The Place of Women on the Court", The New York Times Magazine, July 7, 2009

    Consider this mind experiment. It is September 2016. Democrats control the United States Senate, 54-44, with two independents who caucus with the Democrats. In the upcoming election, 24 Democratic seats are in play, versus 10 Republican seats. Therefore, the Democrats' continued control over the Senate is anything but a foregone conclusion. The same, of course, is true about the presidency. Now imagine that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas suddenly dies some 50 days before the election, providing President Barack Obama with an opportunity to dramatically redirect the court by replacing a "conservative" justice with a "progressive." But NPR's Supreme Court...

    he notion that Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit will be President Trump’s third lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court has the liberal progressives in cardiac arrest. They threaten Trump with another impeachment for doing what the Constitution allows him to do – appoint Supreme Court justices and lower court judges (he has done 300 so far) up to the very last second before he leaves office, assuming he is not reelected. But it looks increasingly likely that he will be, particularly if he makes such a stellar pick. Trump has promised...

    Sen. Ted Cruz blocked a ceremonial resolution honoring the life of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg after Democrats, under the direction of Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, tried to use the occasion to push a political message. The Texas Republican objected to language added to the resolution noting Ginsburg’s reported dying wish that a successor not be chosen until after the election, according to the Texas Tribune. Speaking from the Senate floor, Cruz said, “Unfortunately, the Democratic leader has put forth an amendment to turn that bipartisan resolution into a partisan resolution.” “Specifically, the Democratic leader wants to...

    U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RGB) had a turbulent and notorious career on the Supreme Court. She died after prolonged bouts with cancer and assorted associated ailments. She is reported to have died on Friday, the 19th of September 2020. She spent over 27 years of her life on the Supreme Court. She was influential in many hotly contested decisions that overturned long precedent or created new rights for special interest groups never mentioned in the Constitution. She was a fierce opponent of any sort of significant meaning in the Second Amendment of the Constitution. It is widely believed she...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Monday that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will lie in state in National Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol. She will be the first woman to ever do so. She will also lie in repose at the Supreme Court, it was announced by the court. Pelosi said the ceremony for Ginsburg will be held Friday, Sept. 25. It will be by invitation only, because of the coronavirus. Rosa Parks lay in honor at the U.S. Capitol, a distinction extended to private citizens, as opposed to government officials like Ginsburg. Ginsburg will also be the first...

    Justice in DragRuth Bader Ginsburg did a great many interesting and impressive things in her life, but she never did the one thing she probably really should have done: run for office. Ruth Bader Ginsburg wasn’t an associate justice of the Supreme Court — not really: She was a legislator in judicial drag. You need not take my word on this: Ask her admirers. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg had a vision for America,” Linda Hirshman argues in the Washington Post. What was her vision? “To make America fairer, to make justice bigger.” That is not a job for a judge —...

    CNN’s Don Lemon has to be given a raise. Seriously, his meltdowns are pure gold. And they never cease to amaze. Lemon, like most of liberal America, is going nuts over the prospect of Donald Trump picking the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s successor on the Supreme Court. Ginsburg passed away last Friday at the age of 87. And because he’s president, the whole system has to be destroyed. That’s literally what he said. The meltdown was so much that even his CNN colleague, Chris Cuomo, thought it was too much—all but telling him to slow his roll.

In August, the league officially honored actor Chadwick Boseman with a pregame moment of silence alongside former player Clifford Robinson and college coach Lute Olson after a weekend that tragically claimed all of their lives. On Saturday, the nation suffered another massive loss with the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at 87 years old. She wasn’t just a leader on the nation’s highest court and its second-ever sitting female member, but a champion...
