Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Notorious Supreme Court Justice, has Died 19 September, 2020

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 did not retire during the Obama regime because she thought Hillary Clinton was certain to win the 2016 elections. She was such a partisan advocate, she wished to have her replacement appointed by a woman. She lost that bet.

It appears she will have a replacement appointed by President Trump.

President Trump has kept his word about appointing judges who are originalists and textualists. He has appointed judges who believe the words of the Constitution mean things, and those meanings may not be changed, unless through the process of Constitutional amendments.

Most judges on the court since the reign of Franklin Roosevelt have been philosophical progressives. They have promoted the idea of the Constitution as a “living document”, which means the Constitution can be changed by justices on the Supreme Court as they feel it should be changed.

That philosophy means the Constitution had no fixed meaning, but changes with the change of justices and their ideas, on the court. It is an attractive option for Supreme Court justices. It gives them immense power, privilege, and status.

Promoting one's own power and privilege to the uproarious applause of one's peers and the media is the easiest thing to do in the world. It takes no courage to do this.

RGB famously said, advising Egyptians on the writing of a constitution in 2012:

“You should certainly be aided by all the constitution-writing that has gone one since the end of World War II. I would not look to the US constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012. I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, had an independent judiciary… It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done. Much more recent than the US constitution – …

By any measure of the ability of a Constitution to limit the power of a government, the South African constitution and recent others have been utter failures, compared to the Constitution of the United States.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg lived a long and privileged life, one very few people can attain. She reached the pinnacle of power and privilege, in large part, because she was born female in the United States. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a talented advocate. But advocates should not be justices on the Supreme Court, or any Court unless they are advocates for the rule of law, and justice which is blind.

While Ruth Bader Ginsburg lived, I asked people to pray for her. Now that she is dead, prayers are no longer needed.

It will be interesting to see if Leftist pundits attack Ruth Bader Ginsburg for having the temerity to die when a replacement can be appointed by President Trump.

Do not celebrate the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Pray for President Trump. May President Trump receive wisdom and strength to make the correct decisions when he appoints a replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court of the United States.

Unlike Ruth Bader Ginsburg, President Trump will need the courage to make his decisions. He will face unrelenting attacks by the media and other Progressive leftists. Ruth Bader Ginsburg faced unrelenting praise and honors.

President Trump needs the willpower and resolution to appoint another strong justice to the Supreme Court, one who will do their job to uphold the Constitution as written, rather than advocate for a particular group. He needs to appoint a justice who will have the fortitude and courage to stand up to the advocacy groups in the Media.

President Trump has been successful in his court appointees so far. They have been one of the great successes in his first term, which has been hobbled, demeaned, and attacked with all the power and deceit available in the media and from Progressives in both parties.

President Trump has a historic chance to break out of the morally bankrupt, ever-expanding thrust for power by the Progressive elite. He has a chance to return to a Republic of, by, and for the people, limited in its power by the bonds of the Constitution.

A justice who is not an advocate for the far left identity groups will be an excellent run-up to a second term in a Donald Trump presidency.

Superb Article of Truth. Great job Mr. Weingarten, Bravo! Really appreciate you for your wisdom and insights, your courage of your convictions and clarity of conveying a most difficult body of Truths. Truth has no agenda. Same can not be said of this elite member of the human extinction movement. Has she ever recognized in her judicial activism the truth of things, never without attaching the caveat of polluting or subverting Truth to the deity of ideological farce called cultural marxism. I have watched this person thru my whole life do all within her power to destroy everything good and… Read more »

RBG was a lifelong Communist and should never have been permitted anywhere near SCOTUS. I do not wish ill on anyone, but that she is gone from the SCOTUS is a blessing upon this nation and its citizens. She caused severe damage to our Constitution during her years on the bench.

The devil’s hands were busy with rbg and the other socialist, communist, progressive demoncraps through the decades and she/they have brought America from a blessed nation to a nation of reproach. I hope that Trump replaces her with someone who actually reads and enforces the constitution as written. The replacement MUST also enforce freedom OF religion not freedom FROM religion and the sanctaty of life. The family unit must be returned. Prayer in schools must be returned. The PUBLIC display of the ten commandments must be accomplished. The affirmation of self defense and the 2A as the law of the… Read more »

No playing games, Trump and the Senate are 100% within their Constitutional rights to replace her immediately. The Dems are PISSED because the Supreme Court has been their firewall for ANYTHING they wanted in the past, Trump can put an end to that.

Stockholm syndrome. The one who does the most damage to you and leaves you the most helpless ends up being the one that you bond to. I think the Dems suffer from this, especially when you add their second illness, the idea that others need to make decisions for you and take care of you. Some people hate tyranny, but others seem unable to know what to do without it.

House democrats have threatened to impeach President Trump if he nominates a replacement supreme court justice for RBG. Just how is that possible?  It certainly is not unconstitutional for him to do it as a matter of fact it IS constitutional for him to do so without hesitation.   Furthermore, if the shoe were on the other foot these communists who now pose as democrats would certainly do it. In fact they did in 2016. The primary difference is Obama was out (served two terms) and did not control the Senate while Trump has another term to serve if of course he is reelected which… Read more »

It seems that since the death of RBG that the news of riots and what the left is up to has gone away. Not one article in this Ammoland post regarding what is going on with Antif###s or BLDM because ALM. In the mean time the left said if Trump tries to appoint someone that the rioting will be ramped up and spread out to the suburbs earlier than if Trump wins reelection. Still the demise of the white race hasn’t changed and that is why I am posting this note. White people are under attack and this is how… Read more »

As it stands today, President Trump’s appointment of a successor to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, despite two GOP no votes, is a done deal. She will be confirmed. What is reassuring , even if Trump is not re-elected, between his vast appointments to federal courts and his soon to be three SCOTUS appointments, he left a strong legacy.

Amen and may the legacy continue on for Four More Years of his presidency and at least 100 years after while the demonrats are trying to find ways to get control back while successfully loosing on a yearly basis.
It concerns me what our children will be left with if demonrats rule.

After Trump replaces RBG, after he wins the election and Republicans control the House and Senate, Trump should implement the Democrat’s idea of expanding the Supreme Court.

It’s a fine idea the Democrats have proffered.

I am tired of everything needing to change from what it is to something new to meet todays standards. I think they should pass whatever it takes to keep the supreme court just the way it is. Stacking it and making it different to favor the demonrats is a sucky idea but you are right, lets give unto them what they would like to give unto us if they win and we can’t put a permanent lock on the amount of judges.

Side note worth contemplating during these very difficult times. Folks on all sides of the ideological spectrum are often confused by the warm friendship between Justice Ginsburg (and spouse) and Justice Scalia (and spouse.) To understand how a classical progressive (Wilsonian) could befriend an originalist Conservative you have to remember a key piece of historical timing. Both are products of similar cultural and academic environments and both predate the advance of Progressive New Left ideologies. They lived in a rich intellectual environment where folks could actually debate issues without making that debate existential. The advent of the Progressive New Left… Read more »

True. The entire Obama Regime was caught in that trap as well. FISA court applicatins (frauds), domestic spying on the Trump campaign, the Russian collusion hoax, Biden’s financial footies games with the Ukraine and the Communist Party of China, all of these things were viewed as safe bets as long as Hillary won. To quote Gomer Pyle: “Surprise, surprise surprise!”

I knew Trump would win, when Hillary couldn’t fill a high school auditorium for her rallies Trump was filling foot ball stadiums with people standing outside listening for blocks away. Yeah, the media claimed Hillary was way ahead in the polls and Trump had no chance, but the rallies told a different story.

And that is the contest. Progressive rejected our statement of purpose, the Declaration of Independence and the federalist construction of our Republics as put forth in the Constitution. They reject the Natural law theory as a basis of our liberties and hence the purpose of government. They view politics as “what we do for each other” as opposed to the conservative and libertarian view as “what we do to each other.” That is the contest. Partisan noise is simply a distraction.
