Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87, passed away Friday evening at her home. She was surrounded by family. She passed away due to complications related to metastatic pancreas cancer. She served over 27 years in the Supreme Court as the second woman appointed to this court.

From Fox News, part of the Supreme Court statement:

Justice Ginsburg was born in Brooklyn, New York, March 15, 1933. She married Martin D. Ginsburg in 1954. She received her B.A. from Cornell University, attended Harvard Law School, and received her LL.B. from Columbia Law School. She served as a law clerk to the Honorable Edmund L. Palmieri, Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, from 1959–1961. From 1961–1963, she was a research associate and then associate director of the Columbia Law School Project on International Procedure. She was a Professor of Law at Rutgers University School of Law from 1963–1972, and Columbia Law School from 1972–1980, and a fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences in Stanford, California from 1977–1978. In 1971, she was instrumental in launching the Women’s Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union, and served as the ACLU’s General Counsel from 1973–1980, and on the National Board of Directors from 1974–1980. She was appointed a Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 1980. During her more than 40 years as a Judge and a Justice, she was served by 159 law clerks.

Now that I have said my proper condolences and allowed a decent interval to pass…


5th/77th FA

Rest in Peace RBG…if they’ll let you. May you be judged as you judged…by THE Supreme Judge of us all.


Bitter woman who tried to hold on through three cancer treatments so Trump wouldn’t be able to replace her.

Because she just knew Hillary was gonna win.

So frail and weak she couldn’t do her job…but the hate made her continue.

She caused untold damage to the US Constitution with her personal iving document” thinking she could just make up laws…and the most controversial laws. And ram it down the throats of the American people.


Bitter is a understatement


Well, what you said would be her eulogy compared to what I think of her. Interesting that all these super liberals never had a real job, it was school, work in academia, then hold public office. Just like Clueless Joe Biden, the liar from Delaware. She was only selected due to being a woman, and played that card until her last hand.


Bingo… well put, MCPO USN.


Welp, the Progs will say she had a non-government job when she was running the ACLU for seven years before Dhimmi Carter put her on the Court of Appeals for the District of Criminals and corrupticrats.

A Proud Infidel®™

And I’m sure that the Proglodytes will praise her for the time she spent at the American Communist Litigation Union as well.


Yes. Never forget what Roger Baldwin said in discussing the reason the ACLU was formed: “Remember, communism is our goal.”


All that hate. It kept her warm until the end.

Jeff LPH 3, 63-66

The demoRAT’s obama/republican(no Trumpers) shadow Govt slow moving coup wants to have a black female replace the one that is now deceased. Everything with them is based on gender and skin color. those last two demoRAT court judges swore to the constitution until they were appointed as supreme court judges then it came to how they would read the Constitution.


“…wants to have a black lesbian…”

Fixed it for ya…


How about a black lesbianese tranny non-cisgender two-spirit?



The Dead Man

For what it’s worth, there’s a decent number of right leaning trans out there that would love to snub the left. You catch them out in the wild flaming the left and then rubbing their nose in it every once in a while and it’s usually pretty funny.

Then again, I just enjoy a good trashfire from time to time and the spin would be glorious.

A Proud Infidel®™

Maybe a red-headed buck toothed double jointed lesbian Symbionese Circus Midget?

Radioactive G-Spot

I would personally like to see a left-handed lesbian eskimo midget albino appointed.


Ambidextrous ambisexualist original textualist Texan?

Rest in Peace and God’s will be done.



Green Thumb

Rest well.

My condolences to her family and friends.

A strong woman, a true advocate and unafraid.

Strong qualities that not many posses.

The Other Whitey

I can’t say I’m devastated. All I will say is that her final judgement is out of our hands and will be adjudicated by the Very Highest Authority, and that I sure wouldn’t want to face that judgement with her record.


Sympathy for her family. RIP Justice Ginsberg.


rest well
I hope your at peace
And your bitterness is done

Hack Stone

Hack saw a meme on Facebook where RGB is quoted as saying that she does not want her replacement sworn in until the next President is elected. So if Donald Trump is reelected, her seat will be vacant until January 2025?


If the Dems and Rino’s get there way yes
But don’t forget even if trump gets re-elected
The Republicans seem to be MIA this year when comes to spending on house and senate
Seats so if they fail to take one or the other
He’ll be impeached and out of office by September 2021.. the Durham investigation
Will still be ongoing and quietly killed
With large celebrations in DC and in China
Over his removal


Like so many other decisions she rendered from the bench, that’s not her call.


Well if wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

What wants does not factor in the Constitutional process.


Seems Justice Ginsburg made comments favoring Presidents making appointments in their last year.



she was served by over 150 law clerks over her career. How many of them are now serving as judges?

This is the real threat these black robed tyrants create to the Constitution–their minions.

Acolytes who go forth and gleefully deprive working tax payers of their rights, property, and wealth.


Because they want it.



Exactly. The disciples these clowns create do just as much damage. She is like the queen in Aliens, spawning more liberal pinheads.

We really need to be looking at these Supreme Court Justice positions as 12 year appointments versus lifetime tenure. Do your job and get out.


Even my law school, which had apparently apolitical professors back in the 1970’s, is now full of Progs, indoctrinating more Progs. Thus, I stopped giving it donations over thirty years ago.


Condolences to her family and friends…

Honor and Courage

RIP RBG! With that out of the way I wonder what she thought about the Trangenders competing with the Biological Females in sports. I wonder if Justices had the open bathroom policies that the Democrats love so much! Her last wish will not be granted.

The Supreme Judgment is all hers now!


You should not lose sight of the reality that this woman, who believed that the Constitution should be “flexible” to accommodate the latest leftist cultural fads was a Hillary Clinton appointee. That carries a great deal of political baggage with it as Hillary never appointed ANYONE to ANYTHING unless it was going to benefit HER and her corrupt, sleazy husband politically, personally or financially, usually all three.

This woman was one of the key political players in allowing the Democrats and their leftist base to become so radicalized. She played a very large part in bringing us to the brink of another civil war in which many American lives may be lost in the near future–thanks to her and all the leftist federal judges she spawned.

To me, she was the Jane Fonda of the judiciary.

Ol’ Poe is too old and far too weary of leftist treachery to shed hypocritical tears…


Gonna have to explain how she was a Hilary appointee? Thot her husband was the guilty party.


He was, but maybe the Hildabeast threatened him with Arkancide if he didn’t appoint her. Remember Hildy has always been more lefty than he is. Billy Jeff just mostly wanted to get his freak on. He wasn’ t an aficionado of Saul Alinsky like she was.


C’mon, David…you don’t think Hillary had Bill by the short and curlies? She saved his presidency by defending his sexual predations and attacking his victims.

Do a little research on their history–according to many who served in the White House, she had the whip hand in that relationship. Ginsburg’s leftist politics was much more in tune with Hillary’s than Bill’s. He was not a far leftist while his wife most assuredly was. Hillary was also responsible for Janet Reno, our first lesbian attorney general.


Don’t hold that against Janet. Lesbianism is the only way extremely ugly women like her can ever get laid.


Janet did the dirty work like burning women and children alive.
And had the fur to apologize sans blaming Bill.


rgr769, that made me spit coffee through my nose! But it’s true.

“Ugly Women Matter”


Get on your Twatter account and put a hashtag on that. All the ugo’s will be re-tweeting it. Could start a whole new movement and steal female rioters from Antifa and BLM “protests.”

5th/77th FA

BAM, BAM, BAM, BAM, BAM!!! Excellent Time on Target Fire Mission, Poe! Proceed with your vertical envelopment, BDA 100/100.

Wonder if the jury pool of her Judgement Day will include the Souls of all the late term aborted Babies.


Out effing standing Poe. Follow up, secondary strike called in was also on target and fired for effect. The ruble is now bouncing. Class VI issue to all Troops.


From the article;

her dying wish was political

Which is more than a bit disgusting. How filled with hate do you have to be to have your dying thoughts be of Orange Man Bad?

Wonder if Roberts still takes the stand that judges are apolitical?


She peaked too early.
Rest in Gods arms Ruthie. He loves non believers as well.


The left is in a full on tizzy over her replacement.

“If McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots.”-Laura Bassett, GQ writer.

As opposed to the “mostly peaceful protests” we are seeing right now?

“We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try and ram through an appointment before the election.”-Beau Willimon, writer.

As opposed to shuttering economic activity across the US that has been in effect for the last several months? Does he mean throwing business owners in jail for trying to feed their families? Wait….

“Burn down Congress before letting Trump try to appoint anyone to SCOTUS.”-Emmett Macfarlane, professor at a Canadian university.

Really Canada, you want some? I foresee a tariff on maple syrup if you keep it up.

For a bunch of folks who profess to being non-violent, they sure seem to be advocating for an awful lot of violence.


Well after a lack of action by Barr
To hold people accountable and get
To the bottom of all the spying and other
Illegal shit going on under Obummer shit probably will get stupid !!!! It’s not like they will hold anyone accountable for breaking the law
It’s definitely a sad day to be a Democrat
But they have no one but themselves to blame

The Other Whitey

Apparently lefties on twitter are ganging up on some dem operative who had Ginsburg officiate her wedding to another dem operative last month, with lots of “You killed RBG!” crap.

As much as I enjoy watching them eat their own, seriously, the woman was three days older than dirt and had three different kinds of cancer going on. This was inevitable no matter what she did. Plus, they were all insisting that she was still of sound mind and fit for SCOTUS service, so that would indicate she was fully capable of making her own informed decisions, including not wearing a mask (pearls clutched).


Did she have a last minute conversation with HRC?

Too soon?


“Burn down Congress before letting Trump try to appoint anyone to SCOTUS.”-Emmett Macfarlane, professor at a Canadian university.

How about we, in turn, burn down his house? If he can damage us, then is it not logical that we can damage him in response?

It’s that old “eye for an eye” thing that these people forget. So simple and so easily forgotten.

I’m waiting breathlessly for some jackass who gets a jail sentence for destruction of property when rioting, looting and pillaging, to try to argue that it’s okay under the First Amendment part about “freedom of speech”. The logical response is “if you can destroy my property, then I, in turn, can destroy yours.”


“Give us what we want, or there will be violence!!!”

Promise? Think hard about that.

Real hard.


They’ll call the cops.


The ones they defunded.

Slow Joe

And just like that, the stakes of this election season doubled up.


If the DNC sees that, they’ll be urging her to run for Congress…


If that person in that Twit video has ADHD and has those incredible spasms while driving a vehicle, perhaps it might be a good idea to restrict her to taking public transportation until she gets back on her meds and stays there.


Holy hell. She will literally explode come 4 November.

Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 A Gang Snipe

So in other words, the demoRAT Obama/republican shadow govt slow moving coup doesn’t want a judge that will go by our Constitution.

Keepin' It Real

Although normally I’m opposed to picking a supreme court nominee based on gender or race, in this particular case I think the President should pick a woman.

That way we get to hear the Democrats tell us about her slutty years in college and the juicy details of her allegedly pulling a train with the entire men’s water polo team.

American males demand equal time with the circus.

Pulling a Train


Maybe the corruptocrat progs can fabricate a fake video of Trump getting a golden shower in a Russian hotel from the female nominee. They can certainly gin up a Russian bell boy who testifies he saw the whole incident through a keyhole. That should work. CNN, the Noo Yawk Slimes, and WaPo will be flogging that “story” for months until they can impeach Trump again and try to remove him from office. The fact that Trump can prove it never happened will be irrelevant to D-rats, just like all the proof that Ballsey Whore-Ford was a liar.


Well, I need to put a new roof on the house and replace the garden shed, too, so I think I should apply for the job.

Since this absence was ex absentia mortem, and there is an election underway, it could be a temp job until the permanent replacement is in place, and I could use the extra cash.

Keepin' It Real

Proof that Trump reads TAH.



Just saw a recent pic on TV of Das Hildabeast along with a story about her announcement that the D-rats should fight endlessly to block any Senate consent to a Trump appointment of RBG’s replacement on the Supreme Court. Boy has she aged. Scary looking. She is transforming into Hildy the Huttress. Bill must be wearing his beer goggles or some opaque sunglasses whenever she is in the room with him.

A Proud Infidel®™

I wonder from time to time if Das Hildebeast isn’t simply melting from the inside out from all the white hot hatred and spite she harbors for everyone?


She who shall not be named has a current video now in which she snarls that ‘you have to vote!!!!! youhavetogetoutandvote!!!’ and so on, nearly spits nails out of her mouth. Stuff like that.

Where is all this anger coming from, other than fear that they may lose again?


The anger comes from the fact that she was supposed to be president. Remember she won by over 3 million votes. The fact they mostly came from New Yawk and Commiefornia’s illegal aliens and dead people is irrelevant. She was entitled to the office; 0bama promised her she was next.



A Proud Infidel®™

You mean as in “Hillary is Nacho President”?


She will still vote (D) this year year.


What a monster.

I’m on the high ground, guns laid, clear fields of fire, 90 days of rations.

Waiting for some of these lefty zombie cultists to strip down to their birthday suits, slit their wrists, and then throw themselves off tall buildings. We’re talking Jonestown-level cult fanaticism here…


Is it just me, or is this the behavior of 3-year-olds throwing temper tantrums because they can’t have the whole quart of ice cream?

A Proud Infidel®™

This and President Trump’s reelection in November, I wonder how many liberal moonbats we’ll see and hear about committing spontaneous combustion from having perpetual shitfits?






Shut up, SLUT!


2020… And it’s only Q3.

I’ll be in my bunker…

Has RGB been added to the total of deaths by COVID19 yet? Or will she go down in history as the only person to die so far this year of something other than COVID`19?

Inquiring minds want to know!


Damn good question
If it was a blue state then it’s Wuhan COVID-19


Notorious RIP


Too soon?

Veritas Omnia Vincit

Nah, after all moving forward all the SCOTUS decisions will be “ruth”less…so to speak…


She was an Activist not a Judge…


“Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Be Buried at Arlington National Cemetery”

“According to her wishes, the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery, the Supreme Court said in an announcement following her death Friday at age 87.”

“Ginsburg was not a veteran, but under the strict Arlington rules for interment, Supreme Court justices are eligible to choose Arlington as their resting place.”

“Thirteen other Supreme Court justices are buried at Arlington, including former Chief Justices Earl Warren, William Rehnquist, William Howard Taft and Warren Burger.”

“Ginsburg is expected to be buried at Arlington alongside her late husband, Martin Ginsburg, a tax lawyer and Army veteran who died of cancer in 2010.”
