Justice Ginsburg dead at 87: Misjudged reality

With this September 18, 2020 press release, the U.S. Supreme announced the death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at age 87. She was appointed to the high court by President Clinton in 1993 and was obviously hoping scandal-plagued Democrat Hillary Clinton would appoint her successor after the 2016 presidential election. However, the people of the United States, had the last word, (2-minute video) overwhelmingly electing Donald Trump and thwarting Ginsburg’s plans.

As a result, the former ACLU General Counsel and zealous abortion advocate hung on, working through serious illnesses and surgeries, hoping to outlast President Trump, who she clearly did not want to replace her with a conservative justice.

In 2018 Ginsburg stated her intention to stay on the court for five more years, hoping to surpass what she believed to be President Trump’s time in office. She pointed to the example of Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired at 90.

“I am sure she wants to stay on the court until the end of the Trump presidency if she can,” said Erwin Chemerinsky, the dean of the law school at the University of California, Berkeley, and a liberal who called on Ginsburg to retire in 2014, when Barack Obama was president and Democrats controlled the Senate.

Ginsburg’s glib explanation for falling asleep during Barack Obama’s 2015 State of the Union speech was that she’d had too much to drink before attending andwas not 100% sober.” (video admission.) The political double standard was evidenced by newscasters who found that comment to be humorous.  Does anyone believe their reaction would have been the same if those words were uttered by a 90-year-old Republican justice? CNN slickly dubbed the outrageous episode “Power napping.”

Juxtaposed against the vicious, deceitful personal assault then-nominee and now Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his family endured, far leftist Ginsburg had a cakewalk. The August 3, 1993 roll call confirmation vote on her nomination was 96-3, with one not voting. Sen. John McCain, who claimed to be pro-life, voted in concert with his Arizona seat-mate, Democrat Dennis DeConcini.

As we fast forward to the announcement of her death, Justice Ginsburg big gamble didn‘t pay off. President Trump sits in the White House. He will have the opportunity to appoint a third justice to the Supreme Court.

Although death often facilitates a magical transformation, Seeing Red AZ deals in realities and brings our readers this instructive February 2012 post and accompanying video, titled,US Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg: Unfit to serve,” in which she disparages the U.S. Constitution.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was not an icon. She was an iconoclast.

    Watch as the Dems explode over Pres. Trump nominating a replacement to fill this vacancy. They now want to abolish the filibuster and are outrageously threatening to expand the Supreme Court to neuter conservative influence.

    • Realist says:

      Expanding the court to inflate the number of leftists is tantamount to shredding our US Constitution. Think how this would play out if each party engaged in this retribution tactic. They’d have to build a new Supreme Court building to house the ever increasing number of justices, who would never render decisions because they would never agree.

    Ask yourself, “What would Nancy and Chuckie do if the roles were reversed??”

    • Maggie says:

      I want to accept your challenge, but God made me a conservative Republican, so I’m unable to contort my brain as Nancy and Chuckie do.

      I am curious as to what you think their action plan would be.

      • hoi polloi boy says:

        They’d ram thru another left wing kook in record time. Remember, the sore loser Ds are the party that started playing political hardball with endless “Russian Collusion” investigations and the shampeachment.

  3. Villanova says:

    The Judiciary Act of 1869 fixed the number of Justices at nine, which has worked quite well. Expansion of the court would be a purely partisan rebuke of President Donald Trump and would open the floodgates to expansion as a revenge scheme. Democrats don’t think things through to their illogical conclusion.

  4. MAGA Hat Man says:

    I’m sorry it’s come to this for me, but I have to restrict time I spend around Dimocrats, since my fuse is getting shorter as their ignorance has become more pronounced. Watching the alphabet networks has screwed with their heads and caused political sewage to spew like vomit from their mouths. Can’t handle it so I avoid them.

    Fortunately we have many friends who are not Dims.

  5. Trevor says:

    I heard if Mark Kelly wins he will be able to take office early and it could hurt the confirmation. I wonder if the “Demanders” are okay with this?!

    • Casper says:

      By “Demaders” I assume you mean the ancient pack of “Demand Daniel” supporters who think it’s a smart move to vote against a GOP incumbent in a tight race where gun confiscator Mark Kelly is being bankrolled by his China connections and Socialist George Soros. I held my nose and wrote in Jim O’Connor for the Corporation Commission, since that regulatory board is too important to be majority Democrat. Still, I can’t abide O’Connor for his alliance with dunce McCarthy, who is now trying to start his own party. I’ve contributed to O’Connor on his past failed runs and then I saw that he gave Demand Daniel $1,000 contribution. O’Connor will never see another dime from me.

      Few dems could inflict the amount of damage to our candidates that these outliers do.

    The summation line in this post is classic! Thanks for telling the truth, SRAZ! It’s increasingly difficult to come by these days.

  7. Seen It All says:

    Sens. Dennis DeConcini and John McCain were both deeply involved in the Keating Five banking and ethics scandal that ended the careers of other senators. Well connected McCain and former astronaut (when that meant something) John Glenn skated. DeConcini left office before being kicked to the curb.

  8. Sam says:

    You need to see this:

    President Trump was leaving a rally last evening walking toward Air Force 1 when the media began screaming at him, trying to get his attention.

    Meanwhile,
    Be aware that the USSS has discovered an envelope containing the highly poisonous Ricin, which was addressed to President Trump.
    The envelope, as with all mail, is first examined at an off-site facility.
