Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Can Ruth Bader Ginsburg Make a Man Into a Woman?

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

Is there truly no "fixed external referent" that would indicate to a medical doctor — or even just a modestly intelligent person — that a particular individual happens to be male or female? If five Supreme Court justices decide in the funeral home case that a person's sex under Title VII is whatever the person says it is, the same logic applied to Title IX would mean that a high school boy could simply declare himself a female and then play on the girl's basketball team. But the ultimate issue here is not bathrooms or basketball courts. It is truth. A person's sex is an objective and unchangeable fact. To claim otherwise is simply a lie.

The Plague Of Democrats Smearing Their Way To Power

The plague of smears against Justice Brett Kavanaugh can be understood as the first step in the Left’s post-Ginsberg strategy: Unleash this plague to intimidate Justice Kavanaugh and delegitimize any decision the Supreme Court renders in its aftermath, perhaps even creating a constitutional crisis if Democrat-controlled states refuse to abide by the Court’s decisions on the Second Amendment or abortion.

Get Ready For Apocalypse Ruth

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Ginsburg’s very old and she’s very sick and facing that reality is not the same as high-fiving it. There’s a more than significant chance that before the 2020 election she will pass on to her reward despite her being the Energizer Bunny of being wrong wrong wrong about constitutional jurisprudence. She just keeps going and going and going, but someday she’s going to run out of juice and join her pal Antonin Scalia on the bench in the great beyond, and if that happens with Trump in the White House, ho boy. The Democrats are already prepping the battlespace with this cheesy narrative.

The Gambler: RBG and the Trump Campaign

William Murchison, The American Spectator

No one should ever, ever underestimate the cringe factor in public life — a more general factor than the present White House seems to acknowledge. For now, the prospect of a sure-enough conservative federal judiciary, pre- or post-RBG, plays to Trump’s long suit. It helps, like his refugee policies, to keep conservatives and many much-desired moderates happy, if nervous. If Trump truly desires re-election, he should realize he is pressing his kind of amazing luck — which is what gamblers do, instinctively. It can work, but not always, even with the likes of RBG hovering tableside.

Justice Clarence Thomas Is The Moral Center Of The Supreme Court

Justice Clarence Thomas in an opinion of towering moral clarity, went straight to the foundational principle raised by Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky and by the Indiana law, saying, “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.”

Trump Stuffs Democrats Harris And Feinstein On Ninth Circuit Judges

President Trump’s decision to nominate a slate of solidly conservative judges to the Ninth Circuit vacancies is another demonstration of Trump’s acumen in recognizing the nexus between politics, policy and the judiciary and the Senate is about to change its rules to end the Democrat obstruction that has stalled many of Trump's best conservative nominees.

Apocalypse Ruth

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Our hopes and prayers for her health aside – and many conservatives are offering them even as they would love her to retire – my money is still on a 2019 fight to replace her. While my heart belongs to Judge Don Willett (who swore me into the Texas Bar), my money is on Amy Coney Barrett. She’s got some huge assets that make her the likely pick, starting with the “her” part. Soon-to-be Justice Barrett will not just make a great jurist. She’ll help pave the way for Donald Trump’s re-election by reminding us just what kind of people the Democrats are.

Will Supreme Court Choice Divide or Unite Trump Coalition?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
With President Trump meeting with key Senators to discuss his first Supreme Court nomination it is vital for conservatives to contact the White House and to respectfully urge President Trump to avoid nominating Judge William Pryor to the Supreme Court.

Conservative Opposition to Judge William H. Pryor Jr. Growing

What was a trickle of cultural conservatives voicing concern about Judge Pryor has begun to build into a steady stream of opposition. “Pryor may be 90 percent good on his decisions, but that is not good enough,” said Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association. “We need someone who will be just like Scalia, 100 percent, in terms of their judicial philosophy."

President Trump: Don’t Nominate Judge Pryor, Get Your First Supreme Court Pick Right

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
We know where Judge Pryor stands, and while he has a good record on some of our issues, his willingness to create new protected classes and endow them with judicially created rights unmoored to legislation or the plain language of the Constitution and his failure to protect religious liberty clearly disqualifies him from consideration as a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia.

Stop Pretending the Court Is Impartial

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

How can liberals credibly uphold the pretense that Supreme Court decisions, where the left is the majority, represent judgments based on the Constitution, when Ginsburg, the leading leftist, has revealed herself to be a rabid partisan who can’t wait to use her judicial power to impose her ideology upon the United States?

Liberals are shocked — shocked! — that Ginsburg would act like a hack

Editors, Washington Examiner

Liberals are wringing their hands about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's highly unusual political comments, in which she all but openly called on voters to defeat Donald Trump. While the criticism is appropriate, the vituperation of it is nonetheless amusing. It's as though the New York Times' editors suddenly reached the age where they discovered that their parents don't know everything. The paper doesn't like admitting that its favorite justice is kind of a political hack who has done quite a bit to politicize the court on which she sits.

Trump to Ruth Bader Ginsburg: 'Resign!'

Daniel Chaitin, Washington Examiner

Donald Trump escalated his assault on Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg early Wednesday morning by calling for her resignation after remarks this week slamming the presumptive GOP nominee.

Kasich Spits on the Second Amendment

The Heller and McDonald cases which finally codified the Second Amendment as in individual right were passed on a knife edge, and that knife is about to turn around and slash in the other direction if either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton – or John Kasich – are allowed to fill not only this seat on the court but the likely three or four to follow.

Why Does Ginsburg Want to Kill The Poor?

Kevin D. Williamson, National Review

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, having decided for some inexplicable reason to do a long interview with a fashion mag, reaffirmed the most important things we know about her: her partisanship, her elevation of politics over law, and her desire to see as many poor children killed as is feasibly possible.

Obama: We’re Going to Have SCOTUS Appointments

Joel Gehrke, National Review

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg just reiterated her plan to stay on the bench. “We’re going to have SCOTUS appointments,” Obama said to motivate donors during a DSCC fundraiser. There are 4 SCOTUS justices over the age of 70.
