The Untimely Death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg was not unexpected, but it was a shock, nonetheless. Even though we knew she was fighting a long and courageous battle against cancer, we all knew that death was possible. But when it came, the ramifications of her death burst into high relief. 
Ginsburg was the beloved champion of gender equality over her long career as a lawyer, a judge, and finally, as justice on the Supreme Court. She was appointed by President Bill Clinton in 1993, and she was the second woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court. 
She served in that position for twenty-seven years, until her death. There is no such thing as a ‘timely’ death. No matter how prepared you think you are for the death of a loved one, when death comes, it is a shock. It is never timely for those who are left behind.
Ginsburg believed in her country and saw it through liberal eyes. And although her opinions frequently conflicted with those of her fellow justices, she stuck stubbornly to her positions and fought valiantly for what she believed. She will be missed by those who respected her and loved her for what she stood for and for her courage in the face of the disease that finally took her life. 
Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., said of Justice Ginsburg,

“Our nation has lost a jurist of historic stature. We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague.”

She will no doubt be remembered as what Chief Justice Roberts called “a tireless and resolute champion of justice”.
Justice Ginsburg held on to her seat on the court until the very end. And now that she is gone, the fight to replace her on the Court is just beginning.  
National Public Radio (NPR) reported that just days before her death, she told her granddaughter,

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” 

This story has not been verified, but the fact that she wanted to hold onto her seat until a Democrat was in the White House is hardly news.  
But this is a decision that the Senate must make, and the ramifications of that decision, whatever it will be, will be monumental. Whichever way it plays out, the history of this country hinges upon it, because it is inextricably entwined in the political struggle relating to the upcoming Presidential elections.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died at a time when the country is being torn apart by street riots, lawlessness, and deadly fights between the right and the left. It is a time when the hatred of the Democrats against the Republicans and particularly against the President, has spilled over into cities around the country, where riots, looting, burning, and violent attacks against the police are the order of the day. 

America is less than seven weeks away from the most important presidential election in our lifetime, and the country is tottering on the brink of a civil war. This new controversy may be just the thing that pushes us over the edge.

Mitch McConnell


A great deal depends on what Mitch McConnell decides to do. Justice Ginsburg’s death is going to ignite a firestorm around whether a new justice should be nominated before the November election, or not until after the winner of the election is sworn in on January 20th, 2021.
There is a precedent for waiting. When Justice Antonin Scalia died suddenly in 2016, Republicans had a majority in the Senate and McConnell held up the nominations of Judge Merrick Garland, appointed by President Obama, for ten months. McConnell refused to hold hearings or take a vote until after the 2016 election. But on Friday, he said unequivocally that, “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate”.
The Democrats and the Republicans have been at loggerheads for the last four years. And the radical left, rioting in our cities and destroying whatever they can, are leading us into a conflict that we will not be able to turn back from.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death may be the proverbial straw that breaks the back of law and order in the United States, and leads us into a mighty civil war between the radical agitators of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and anarchists who have taken over our streets, and the people of America who believe in the Constitution and the vision that it gave to generations of Americans who built this country and the immigrants who came here in search of a better life. 
There is no middle ground on this decision. President Trump will need to use every bit of insight and skill to defuse the bomb that is about to go off and hurtle our country into civil war. Our future and the future of our beloved country depends on it.

We must not be intimidated by either alleged “precedence” or threats from the violence-prone left.
We must do what’s best for the nation now and not wait.
Waiting means there may be a democrat-controlled Senate. Waiting may mean a months long contested presidential election.
Act now on confirmation of our new Justice!

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

The establishment has money and counts itself as power brokers. They love the status quo, the “don’t rock the boat” mentality. They pronounce, “This is our guy!” and expect the masses to get in line. However, many are standing up and deciding to vote conscience over party or affiliation – regardless. But aren’t those the same “stand up” attitude and actions that formed this great nation?
