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.

    RBG, RIP.

    • Combat Historian says:

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

      PAST TIME TO GET AN ORIGINALIST CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATIVE TO FILL THAT SEAT!!!

  2. 5th/77th FA says:

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

  3. 2banana says:

    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.

    • Skippy says:

      Bitter is a understatement

    • MCPO USN says:

      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.

      • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

        Bingo… well put, MCPO USN.

      • rgr769 says:

        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®™ says:

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

          • rgr769 says:

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

    • NEC338x says:

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

  4. 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.

  5. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Rest in Peace and God’s will be done.

  6. Green Thumb says:

    Rest well.

    My condolences to her family and friends.

    A strong woman, a true advocate and unafraid.

    Strong qualities that not many posses.

  7. The Other Whitey says:

    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.

  8. Sparks says:

    Sympathy for her family. RIP Justice Ginsberg.

  9. Skippy says:

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

  10. Hack Stone says:

    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?

  11. Ret_25X says:

    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.

    Why?

    Because they want it.

    • MCPO USN says:

      25X,

      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.

      • rgr769 says:

        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.

  12. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Condolences to her family and friends…

  13. Honor and Courage says:

    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!

  14. Poetrooper says:

    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…

    • David says:

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

      • rgr769 says:

        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.

      • Poetrooper says:

        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.

        • rgr769 says:

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

          • 26Limabeans says:

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

          • Sparks says:

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

            “Ugly Women Matter”

            • rgr769 says:

              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 says:

      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.

      • KoB says:

        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.

      • Mason says:

        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?

  15. 26Limabeans says:

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

  16. penguinman000 says:

    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.

    • Skippy says:

      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 says:

      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).

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      “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.”

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

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

      Promise? Think hard about that.

      Real hard.

  17. Slow Joe says:

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

  18. charles w says:

    Remember, popcorn futures have no where to go but up. Plan accordingly.

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

  20. Keepin' It Real says:

    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

    • rgr769 says:

      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.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      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 says:

      Proof that Trump reads TAH.

      SCOTUS-Woman

  21. rgr769 says:

    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®™ says:

      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?

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      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?

      • rgr769 says:

        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.

  22. Sapper3307 says:

    She will still vote (D) this year year.

  23. Mason says:

    What a monster.

  24. thebesig says:

    This woman breaks down, while driving, and goes on a rant when she finds out that Ruth Bader Ginsburg died:

  25. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    2020… And it’s only Q3.

    I’ll be in my bunker…

  26. 5th/77th FA says:

    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!

  27. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    Notorious RIP

    ….

    Too soon?

    She was an Activist not a Judge…

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

    https://www.military.com/daily-news/2020/09/21/supreme-court-justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-be-buried-arlington-national-cemetery.html

    “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.”
