    Biden’s fascist Brownshirts have spoken: all out war will be waged against Trump on the streets of America for the next two months. Nothing will stop them now.

  4. Robber Baron

    Nothing will stop them now.

    Looks like a repeat of Nixon 1968

  5. If the Golden Child had asked nicely, I’m sure that Ginsberg would have retired voluntarily to allow a special pick to replace her but, as mentioned, everyone expected the crook to win.

    Exactly.
    Truth was, they expected RBG to die or retire during the reign of Hillary I, enabling the perfect symmetry and symbolism of the first wymminses President appointing a 30-something feral feminist activist to the bench.
    Best laid plans …

    Hmmm…looking at some of the replies to the other thread on the woman’s death, I see that some on the right are not better than those of the left. FFS, she’s a person who has died and left loved ones to grieve. And a child of God in some way or another. Perhaps we could respect that if nothing else.

    LOL
    Clever, C.L.

  11. Up The Workers!

    No matter how hard you try, you cannot take a Leftard out of the gutter; nor the gutter out of a Leftard’s mouth.

    The world is thankfully now a more “Ruth”-less place than it was before – and no matter how hard-hearted the old bat was in her miserable, Leftard life, her soul will never, ever be cold where she is going.

    As far as Nicole’s gutter-mouthed comments above are concerned, this is just one more proof that Leftards are never in it for the principle – they always keep hanging about for the money – like Ruth did.

  12. Neil

    I was banned from Twitter for saying things nowhere near as bad as that. I guess somebody complained about my comment

  13. billie

    fork!

    this is going to distract the lefty nutters for a while

    she was asked to retire in obamy’s day, so he could pick the next judge, but she politely declined

    I’m for a glass of shadenfreude ..

  14. mundi

    She has a point. The supreme court is basically just a 3rd house of government now. Older people should make way while the party can appoint replacements and continue to stack the ‘house’.

    In this cause it was just greed because they though Hillary was a shoe-in.

  15. Robbo

    I get the impression that for some reason or another she doesn’t like Ginsburg. Perhaps she could be persuaded to tell us what she really thinks.

  16. H B Bear

    All hail our Orange hero. Another win.

  17. Chris M

    And a child of God in some way or another.

    Well we are made in the image of God Genesis 1v27 however lets be frank this crone didn’t reflect that and was instrumental in the death of many with the upholding of infanticide and many other Godless laws.

    Psalm 2
    Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us.”

    He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision.

    You may be right to a certain extent; personally I find no joy in anyone’s death.
    I remember when Margaret Thatcher died, I found the rejoicing and the utterly despicable behaviour of many towards news of her death extremely offensive.
    Even some in the MSM were dancing on her grave.

  19. pbw

    Note that there is no pretence of a disinterested judiciary in the USA. The courts are almost as political as the Executive or the Congress, but they never face a vote. The whole point of their permanent appointments is that they were originally expected to write disinterested judgements. Nobody thinks that is the case with SCOTUS, let alone the lower courts.

    Why not just give them eight-year terms, with no repeats?

    Incidentally, Scalia’s BFF on the Bench was RBG.

  20. pbw

    I should have added, may she rest in peace.

    My understanding is that he did ask her. Obviously, not nicely enough. If so, it explains the feral end of the left chimping out. Whilst she had a significant impact on the US during her life, her most memorable achievement may be creating a conservative SCOTUS for years to come. All down to her hubris.

  22. Old School Conservative

    Most of the press, in reporting President Trump’s reaction to the news, are leaving out this sentence:
    “I am sad to hear that.”
    The man’s all class and his opponents in the press are nothing but guttersnipes.

  23. Cumborah Kid

    Ah the left, toxic on day, vindictive the next.

  24. Hmmm…looking at some of the replies to the other thread on the woman’s death, I see that some on the right are not better than those of the left.

    I wouldn’t put it past the Left to actually do that, so that the media can quote how Trump supporters feel.

  25. Podcaster Katie Herzog said she hoped McConnell suffered a stroke and became “brain dead” before that happened.

    To clarify: I don’t want him to die. I just want him to be brain dead. I’m not a monster.

    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.”

    Not even the advent of the gateway to eternity can dissuade them from engaging in petty politics.

    Maybe it should be carved on her headstone for untold future generations to see. History can then judge her appropriately.

  31. Not even the advent of the gateway to eternity can dissuade them from engaging in petty politics.

    That’s actually a very salient point. No wishing for good health and life for her family and friends, but just ‘Never Trump’? I do wonder whether that was what she really said, or did her granddaughter just make it up?

    Not sure what they are stressing about. It wont happen until after the election and Ol Joes a shoe in isnt he?

    18 Sept: PalmieriReport: Former CNN Host Threatens “Burn The Entire F*cking Thing Down” If RBG Is Replaced
    by Jacob Palmieri
    Former CNN Host Reza Aslan threatened America if Republicans tried to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg who died at the age of 87 late Friday night…
    TWEET

    He also sent out this threatening tweet:
    “Over our dead bodies. Literally.”..

    When Joan Crawford, the arch nemesis of Bette Davis, died, Bette Davis was asked to comment.
    She said (paraphrased). “My mother always taught me to only say good things about the dead. Joan Crawford has died. Good”

  35. The truncated ‘of course’ was supposed to note that the Dems and supporters have threatened to burn the place to the ground if that happens.

  36. Ed Case

    ***Biden’s fascist Brownshirts have spoken: all out war will be waged against Trump on the streets of America for the next two months. Nothing will stop them now.***
    The Brownshirts were a reaction to the Bolsheviks/Communists who had taken over the streets in Germany.
    So far the Brownshirts haven’t turned up in America but the Bolsheviks are running wild.

  37. I believe that this will be viewed as a seminal moment in American history. If the Left react as they have indicated, if Ginsberg is replaced prior to the election, it will divide the US in a way that hasn’t occurred since the Civil War. What happens then will transform the US as it was post Civil War.

  38. Steve

    I suspect many normal people who are sick of the ferals runnig around ont he dtreets will just take matters into their own hands. I’m expecting to see a lot of dead leftists….

    When you think about it, the Left are just thugs and bullies, no-one has to put up with that, and I suepct decent americans who will put the safety of thier family first, wont.

    Having dealt with a few hard core lefties, they can get quite wild-eyed when you dont agree with them, so I suspect when it kicks off, the Left will get an enema that will last several lifetimes….

  39. Ubique

    President Trump should appoint a good solid conservative judge young enough to frustrate the Democrats for the next half century.

    She only said that because she has a thing going for demented old fossils like Creepy Old Senile-Joe of the Dementiacrats.

  41. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Trump said it best. Expressed that he was ‘sad’ to hear of her death, and praised her contribution to America during her time on the Supreme Court. He didn’t say he agreed with all that she had done.

    Very restrained and Presidential of him.

    Personally, I am glad that she is resting in peace, away from the position she felt she had to keep holding and I am sorry for her family, for grief has no politics.

  42. for grief has no politics.

    Given her long term condition, the family would have been prepared for some time. I’ve gone through this myself and, at the end of the day, it’s somewhat of a relief that the pain and emotions are finally laid to rest.

    It’s sad that her family couldn’t keep the politics out of her death.

  43. Rex Anger

    The Brownshirts were a reaction to the Bolsheviks/Communists who had taken over the streets in Germany.

    Respectfully Edgy, I think you are confusing the Freikorps with the NSDAP’s enforcer wing.

    The SA were simply another pack of snarling, violent, radical ferals, but dressed in much snazzier uniforms. If that were not the case, the Night of the Long Knives would have been totally unnecessary, and the SA might have still existed as an armed paramilitary force after 1936, or absorbed more peacefully into the SS.

    National Socialists (or Fascists) and International Socialists are the same creature. It is like a green parrot vs. a red one. Both screechy and have a nasty bite…

  47. Ed Case

    It’s up to the Senate Judiciary Committee to announce Hearings.
    The only point would be to fuck Trump over by allowing Kamala Harris to grandstand to a National audience, which means that McConnell puppet Lindsey Graham is likely to announce Hearings.

    Seriously I just heard this woman speak – why are we championing mediocrity.
    Women in average jobs involving talking – law , journalism
    Whenever I hear the Ginsberg name they are useless foul mouths – eg Alan Ginsberg

    Liberal America Had an Epic Meltdown Over Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Death, But They Have Only One Person to Blame

    Matt Vespa| @mvespa1|Posted: Sep 19, 2020 4:45 AM

    ….

    Still, ‘Notorious RBG’ made a serious miscalculation by not retiring during the Obama years. If she had, there probably would be a much younger jurist holding the line for the liberal wing of the Supreme Court right now. No hassle. Alas, that didn’t happen, and for all these liberals who are going ballistic—this battle was really RBG’s choosing. I think she, like many, thought Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election. She would then ride off into the sunset and that would be it. Instead, Trump won arguably the biggest political upsets of all time, certainly within the last generation, and got stuck. It’s an unpopular opinion among liberal circles for sure, maybe more agree but keep it to themselves. Still, the meltdown is popcorn worthy.

    From the Thomas More Society’s Tom Brejcha:

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will go down in legal history as a Jurist of very high stature and lasting repute who played a pioneering and pivotal role in paving the way for the advancement of women lawyers to their present positions of power and influence in our legal profession.

    She was supremely gifted and dedicated in her singular devotion and masterly contributions to the legal and associated social reforms that brought about this monumental progress over the many decades of her labors. But what marks her as a truly legendary jurist is her fidelity to the law, as a body of principles that stands apart from, and transcends, mere policy preferences and political partisanship, however deeply felt and ardently fought for.

    Thus we witnessed her voting twice in favor of our advocacy, which was assailed (stridently albeit baselessly) in so many quarters in the marathon NOW vs. Scheidler litigation, which gave birth to our Thomas More Society, a public interest law firm.

    The case lasted over 28 years from start to finish, and it culminated in a pair of successive U.S. Supreme Court decisions against the use of the federal racketeering and extortion laws against peaceable non-violent political protest.

    In that case, Justice Ginsburg joined an 8-1 majority in Scheidler II, handed down in 2003, and then again she joined an 8-0 majority in Scheidler III, handed down in 2006 (Justice O’Connor having retired, or it would have been 9-0) — proving herself faithful to the operative legal principles that proved dispositive, despite the fact that she was casting her vote against the National Organization for Women, another high profile advocate for the cause, so styled, of women’s rights.

    We deeply disagreed with her about abortion rights, but we too, at the Thomas More Society, salute her record of judicial service and mourn her passing.
    Sincerely,
    Tom Brejcha
    President & Chief Counsel

    Does any one here still think you can deal rationally with the left? I mean really?

    They are vicious children who not only pick wings off grasshoppers and butterflies but who demand that what they do is good and moral and kind.

    If aliens wanted to destroy humanity in a an amusing leisurely way they would have just invented the left mind set.
