U.S. Supreme Court statement on the passing of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

(Sep. 21, 2020) — In an 8:00 a.m. EDT interview with “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, President Trump said on “Friday or Saturday” he will announce his nominee to replace the late U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away of cancer on Friday at the age of 87.

His announcement is timed to take place after Ginsburg’s funeral, Trump told co-hosts Ainsley Earhardt, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade.

A political battle is brewing over whoever the nominee might be given that the presidential election is 42 days from today.  Congressional Democrats believe no nominee should be put forward, while Republicans want Trump to name his nominee and for the Senate to quickly schedule confirmation hearings.

On Saturday, Trump declared that his nominee will be a woman, and on Monday he said he has narrowed the list to “four or five” women jurists.

Ginsburg’s 1993 nomination by then-President William Jefferson Clinton was confirmed by the Senate in 42 days, with at least two other nominees receiving confirmation in less time, The Federalist reported.

Meanwhile, Ginsburg’s chair and bench at the Supreme Court, as well as the doorways, are draped in black.  Plans for both private and public funeral services are under way, ABC7 reported Sunday.

  1. Get-‘er done, Donny!

    Because homo sapiens are the species representing the US Supreme Court (USSC), along with the free will of these species comes the ability to reason right from wrong. When reasoning and choice opposes the US Constitution, then invariably one of the God’s 10 commandments also are sinned against. This is politics in action.

    Because some USSC jurists prefer to interject politics into their USSC decisions rather than following the essentials of the US Constitution, I recommend a Constitutional Amendment that limits the amount of years or terms that all voted-in politicians should be able to serve, not just for the presidency.

    The decision to limit the president of the USA to two terms likely was a reactive response to politics as-well-as an age thing. It’s past time to also limit the Article I and Article III employees in order to limit or help remove entrenched politics from the game of representing We The People.
