Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Champion Of Gender Equality, Dies At 87

 

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the demure firebrand who in her 80s became a legal, cultural and feminist icon, died Friday. The Supreme Court announced her death, saying the cause was complications from metastatic cancer of the pancreas. 

The court, in a statement, said Ginsburg died at her home in Washington surrounded by family. She was 87.

"Our nation has lost a justice of historic stature," Chief Justice John Roberts said. "We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her, a tired and resolute champion of justice." 

Architect of the legal fight for women's rights in the 1970s, Ginsburg subsequently served 27 years on the nation's highest court, becoming its most prominent member. Her death will inevitably set in motion what promises to be a nasty and tumultuous political battle over who will succeed her, and it thrusts the Supreme Court vacancy into the spotlight of the presidential campaign.

Just days before her death, as her strength waned, Ginsburg dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera: "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed."

She knew what was to come. Ginsburg's death will have profound consequences for the court and the country. Inside the court, not only is the leader of the liberal wing gone, but with the court about to open a new term, the chief justice no longer holds the controlling vote in closely contested cases.

Though Roberts has a consistently conservative record in most cases, he has split from fellow conservatives in a few important ones this year, casting his vote with liberals, for instance, to protect at least temporarily the so-called DREAMers from deportation by the Trump administration, to uphold a major abortion precedent and to uphold bans on large church gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic. But with Ginsburg gone, there is no clear court majority for those outcomes.

This election - already insane, has now gotten even more important for both sides.

 

RIP - I didn’t agree with her views, but she definitely left her mark.

RIP. I never kick an enemy down when they're dead. With that being said, it's unfortunate that this is how she spent her remaining years instead of retiring and enjoying her final years on Earth. No doubt Trump has this woman already lined up.

Amy Coney Barrett

A finalist for Trump's second high court nomination, which ultimately went to Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, Barrett, 48, is a favorite of religious conservatives.

Barrett rocketed to the top of Trump's list of potential nominees after her 2017 confirmation hearing for a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, when Democrats cited her deep Catholic faith not as an advantage but an obstacle. She was confirmed, 55-43.

"If you're asking whether I take my faith seriously and I'm a faithful Catholic, I am," Barrett responded during that hearing, "although I would stress that my personal church affiliation or my religious belief would not bear in the discharge of my duties as a judge."

She has written that Supreme Court precedents are not sacrosanct, which liberals have interpreted as a threat to the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide.

In case you MAGAT's have short term memory loss.....

 

Here’s what Senate Republicans said when Obama tried to confirm a Supreme Court judge in an election year
Senate Republicans blocked the appointment of a liberal justice in 2016. Here’s what they said

 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell speaks from Washington DC. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell speaks from Washington DC.(EPA)

Senate Republicans may be forced to eat their own words four years after they blocked Barack Obama from filling a vacant supreme court seat in an election. The circumstances are the same — only the years, the names and the sides have changed.

In February of 2016, conservative legal giant Justice Antonin Scalia, died, leaving a space on the Supreme Court. The process is relatively straightforward: The sitting president nominates a qualified candidate, and the Senate votes to confirm with a simple majority.

But just hours after Scalia’s death, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that he would block any such move. It was an election year, he said; the American people should have a voice in deciding who should sit on the court, and the appointment should wait until after the election. Senate Republicans joined with him in blocking the appointment.

It was an unprecedented decision, a new principle, that sparked an almighty political battle in Washington. In the end, Mitch McConnell got his way, and Merrick Garland, the moderate candidate nominated by Barack Obama, did not take a seat on the court. Instead, Donald Trump nominated and confirmed Neil Gorsuch.

Four years later, and the tables are turned. Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday aged 87, leaving a space on the Supreme Court to be filled. Her death comes much closer to the election, just six weeks away.

The Republican-controlled senate now has the power to confirm a justice nominated by the current president, Donald Trump. But to do so, many would have to directly contradict their own 2016 position.

Here is what Republicans said in 2016 about appointing Supreme Court justices in an election year:

“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.” — Sen. Mitch McConnell, 13 February 2016.

“This nomination will be determined by whoever wins the presidency in the polls.”  Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), 23 February 2016.

“This is the last year of a lame-duck, and if Ted Cruz or Donald Trump get to be president, they’ve all asked us not to confirm or take up a selection by president Obama. So if a vacancy occurs in their last year, of their first term, guess what, you will use their words against them. You will use their words against them. I want you to use my words against me. If there is a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said ‘let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination,’ and you could use my words against me and you'd be absolutely right.” — Sen. Lindsey Graham, (R-SC) 10 March, 2016

“I'll tell you this, if an opening comes in President Trump's term, and the primary process has started, we will wait until the next election.” — Lindsey Graham (R-SC), 3 October, 2018 .

“We have a unique opportunity for the American people to have a voice in the direction of the Supreme Court. Our side believes very strongly that the people deserve to be heard, and they should be allowed to decide, through their vote for the next president, the type of person who should be on the Supreme Court.” — Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), 7 April, 2016.

“The president [Obama] exercised his unquestioned authority under the constitution, to nominate someone to this vacancy. But that same constitution reserves to the United States senate, and the United States senate alone, the right to either grant or withhold consent to that nominee.”  — Sen. John Cornyn, (R-Texas). 16 March, 2016.

“Justice Scalia was an American hero. We owe it to him, & the Nation, for the Senate to ensure that the next President names his replacement.” — Ted Cruz (R-Texas) 13 February, 2016.

“It has been 80 years since the Senate has confirmed any judicial vacancy for the Supreme Court that occurred during a presidential election and the Republican majority in the Senate last year announced before Merrick Garland was nominated, before anyone was nominated, that we were going to keep this seat open and let the American people decide.” — Ted Cruz, (R-Texas) 31 January, 2016.
