  • Now they're turning on RBG! The left blames late Supreme Court justice for dying before retiring in 2020 which paved way for Amy Coney Barrett

    Liberal Twitter users have taken to the platform to blast the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg following the court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on Friday. While a number of journalist lay the blame at former President Trump who got to appoint three conservative justices during his time in the White House, things took a surprising turn when attention shifted to RBG. Several users saw it fit to blame the late Supreme Court Justice for the court's landmark decision on abortion with some suggesting that had she decided to step down sooner while President Obama was in...
  • Brooks: Roe ‘Was Fragile’ and Ginsburg Warned About That

    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks argued that Roe v. Wade was always a “fragile” ruling and pointed out that former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg expressed similar concerns about the decision back in 1992. Brooks also argued that it was always a risky proposition to hang abortion’s legality on the Roe decision and it’s important to note that there is a difference between arguing abortion is a constitutional right and arguing for its legality as a matter of policy.
  • Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was Right: Roe v. Wade was always destined for the Scrap Heap

    The only question for Roe v. Wade was when it would be overturned, not if.Whatever your position on abortion is, Roe v. Wade is objectively bad law built upon fetid ground. With the shameful release of an early draft of an upcoming Supreme Court decision with Dobbs v. Jackson, we now know Roe will be overturned. Many on the left are freaking out over this decision, with much fearmongering coming from the media. However, the journalistic and political class is not telling people, as understood by liberal jurists like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, that Roe was always weak law destined for...

    The Twitter executive responsible for blocking stories about Hunter Biden's laptop is one of several advisers to the Aspen Institute's disinformation commission. Yoel Roth is one of several questionable advisers to Aspen's Commission on Information Disorder, which on Monday released its much-anticipated report. Commission members include Katie Couric, who recently acknowledged that she edited comments on National Anthem protests out of a 2016 interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg to preserve the justice's reputation with liberals. Another commissioner, Rashad Robinson, helped fuel actor Jussie Smollett's hate crime hoax. Commission members' censorship of legitimate news stories could undercut their lofty mission. The...

    It seems that Katie Couric was protecting the “Notorious RBG” from being too notorious. In her new memoir, Going There, Couric admitted she edited comments from Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for her 2016 interview to protect her from severe public backlash. The Justice’s crime? Criticizing the national anthem kneelers. Couric omitted parts she deemed more problematic, such as when Ginsburg said that the protesters were showing “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.” Couric admitted in her memoir that she believed the then-83-year-old just was too “elderly and...
  • ACLU is slammed for altering Ruth Bader Ginsburg quote about abortion rights to remove female pronouns and replacing 'woman' with 'person'

    The American Civil Liberties Union has been slammed over a tweet which altered a famous quote from the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg about abortion rights, replacing the word 'woman' with 'person' and swapping female pronouns with 'they.' 'The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a [person's] life, to [their] well-being and dignity… When the government controls that decision for [people], [they are] being treated as less than a fully adult human responsible for [their] own choices,' the ACLU posted in a photo on Twitter on the one-year anniversary of Ginsburg's death on...

    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...

    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...

    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...
