Ginsburg’s ‘Most Fervent Wish’ Revealed After She Dies at Age of 87

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had a “most fervent wish” prior to her death and Democratic lawmakers are now fighting to bring that dream to fruition.

Shortly after Ginsburg’s death was reported, her granddaughter Clara Spera released a statement that revealed her grandmother’s dying wish.

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” Ginsburg said, according to Spears’ statement to Politico.

Ginsburg’s request was revealed as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) released a statement vowing to hold a vote on the Senate floor to replace the late Supreme Court trailblazer with one of President Donald Trump’s nominee.

Democratic leaders immediately fired back at McConnell and Republican lawmakers reminding them of the principle they created in 2016 to block President Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland from receiving a vote on the Senate floor.

With 10 months until the 2016 presidential election, McConnell criticized Obama. The lawmaker said Obama was making the nomination “in order to politicize it for purposes of the election.”

The Senate leader charged that the next president should select the Supreme Court nominee:

“The American people are perfectly capable of having their say on this issue, so let’s give them a voice. Let’s let the American people decide. The Senate will appropriately revisit the matter when it considers the qualifications of the nominee the next president nominates, whoever that might be.”

Now, with just 45 days left until the 2020 presidential election, McConnell is contradicting his own principle and attempting to do what he refused to do under Obama’s leadership in 2016.

If Senate Republicans succeed they will have a chance to tighten their control with a 6-3 majority giving them more power to rule against laws and policies such as Obamacare.

Now, Democratic leaders and lawmakers are looking to honor Ginsburg’s wish with McConnell’s principle in mind.

  1. “Their job is to rule by the constitution.” Lying Paul The Emeffer

    If a president, such as Dear Leader, is going to load the SC with incompetent judges (Gorsuch, Kavanagh) who side with corporations vs us people, expect liberties to be taken regarding our rights.

    “Who are the real fascists?” Lying Paul The Emeffer

    The fascists are those in this administration who are sychophants of Dear Leader, AG Barr, and any in the American Fascist Party, including the party leader, who don’t ever oppose them in their quest for dictatorial powers within a one-party state. This is happening right now, before your very eyes.

  2. Pinhead- you keep on bringing up fascists. Who are the real fascists?

    Looks like your libby comrades and even a communist Poli Sci professor from Canuckland are the ones you need to direct your comments about.

  3. Their job is to rule by the constitution. The libs have been known to rule from the bench which is bullshit. Facts are facts Pinhead. If you call that fascist you really are full of shot.

  4. Hey, Lying Paul The Emeffer, the SC is SUPPOSED to be there to protect you, too! If you can’t see the dangers of having an unbalanced court in an era of fascism, then you are part of the problem. There are unquestionably unqualified judges being put into permanent positions of power by the American Fascist Party over the past few generations and we are paying the price today. With a 6-3 imbalance and a fascistic Dear Leader in power, this country will be in serious trouble for a couple more generations.

    What are YOU going to do to help stop that from happening, Lying Paul The Emeffer? Lie more often? Good luck with that.

  5. Proof positive that the American Fascist Party and this administration want one-party rule with a dictatorial Dear Leader. I warned about this. I hope any Democratic voter who is even contemplating sitting out this election gets off their sorry ass and wipes out any fascistic politicians hoping for the coming dictatorship. This country, as broken and on fire as it is, is depending on your participation, this time. This is no time for weakness. Vote them out and protect the SC!
