Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Dying Wish Revealed, and it Has to Do with the President


Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s granddaughter revealed the 87-year-old Supreme Court justice’s dying wish, which Ginsburg gave to her just days before passing.


NPR reported that Ginsburg “dictated” the following statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”


Ginsburg was widely praised by those across the political spectrum for her toughness in battling five separate bouts of cancer.

The Supreme Court released the following statement in response to Ginsburg’s death:

Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died this evening surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer. She was 87 years old. Justice Ginsburg was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Clinton in 1993. She was the second woman appointed to the Court and served more than 27 years. She is survived by her two children: Jane Carol Ginsburg (George Spera) and James Steven Ginsburg (Patrice Michaels), four grandchildren: Paul Spera (Francesca Toich), Clara Spera (Rory Boyd), Miranda Ginsburg, Abigail Ginsburg, two step-grandchildren: Harjinder Bedi, Satinder Bedi, and one greatgrandchild: Lucrezia Spera. Her husband, Martin David Ginsburg, died in 2010. 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. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice.” 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. While on the Court, the Justice authored My Own Words (2016), a compilation of her speeches and writings. A private interment service will be held at Arlington National Cemetery.

So all the Dems that are now saying the President should not nominate in an election year are the same Dems that in 2016 were approving of Obama nominating in an election year. It's one of the President's bedrock duties, and that duty doesn't end juts because there's an election coming!

The left should be blaming her for not retiring when the Muslim was in the Oval Office. If she had retired then he could have replaced her with one of his Muslim or commie buddies. The left can also blame Harry Reid for changing the senate rules. In any event her alleged last wish means nothing compared to the loss of freedom and livelihood if the SCOTUS ever gets run by the left.

It's not in her wheelhouse to dictate who will nominate a replacement, it's up to the President (sitting) and not Congress. We can expect Chucky and gang to impede the process, but Chucky, remember it was Democratic Reid that changed the Senate Rules on confirmation by the Senate to a simple majority. You loose as it was your party that made the change and you voted for it. President Trump has the Constitutional Authority to nominate and the Senate has the authority to confirm. It does not say nor limit the nomination to an election year or not.
