    Dozens of congressional Republicans are demanding that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recuse herself from ruling on President Trump’s travel ban case before the Supreme Court hears arguments in October, saying she’s already shown she can’t be an impartial jurist when it comes to Mr. Trump. Justice Ginsburg had to apologize during last year’s campaign for saying she worried for the country should Mr. Trump be elected, and accusing him of being “a faker.” More than 50 House Republicans this week fired off a letter saying that creates a situation where her “impartiality might reasonably be questioned” — the standard laid...
  • Latest Supreme Court’s Religious-Freedom Message: There Are No Second-Class Citizens

    While there are many threats to religious liberty, few are more consequential over the long term than the state’s ever-expanding role in private life. If the government is able to vacuum up tax dollars, create programs large and small for public benefit, and then exclude religious individuals or institutions from those programs, it has functionally created two tiers of citizenship. Secular individuals and institutions enjoy full access to the government they fund, while religious individuals and institutions find themselves funding a government that overtly discriminates against them. That’s the issue the Supreme Court addressed today in Trinity Lutheran Church...

    This case, unlike other more mundane cases involving Trump policies that may come before the court, clearly places Donald Trump’s words, personality and credibility in issue. One of the Justices already has expressed a view on Trump’s credibility. In July 2016, Justice Ruth Bader Ginbsburg was quoted in a CNN interview deriding Trump as “a faker”.... Justice Ginsburg made two other negative public statements about Trump during the campaign... Justice Ginsburg’s negative comments about Trump, though less direct, continued after inauguration....

    President Trump will be having dinner with Supreme Court justices Thursday. Trump's newly confirmed Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch is expected to join. It's not clear if all of the other eight Supreme Court justices plan to attend.

    "I thought back to the 1993 confirmation of my nomination to the court—the hearing was altogether civil, the vote was 96 to 3. For Justice Scalia, the vote was unanimous," Ginsburg said. "Let's hope members of Congress, the members that Allegheny College has already honored — Vice President Joe Biden and Senator John McCain, the women of the Senate, Senators Dianne Feinstein and Lindsey Graham — let's hope that they and others of goodwill will lead in restoring harmonious work ways."

    President Trump believes that he will have the opportunity to pack the Supreme Court with five judges, making him only the seventh president to appoint a majority and potentially cementing his legacy and that of the conservative court well past 2055. . . . By the end of Trump's first term, three will have crossed that line, Anthony Kennedy, who will be 83, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who will be 86, and Stephen Breyer, who will be 81. The next oldest is Clarence Thomas, who will be 71. The source did not indicate who Trump expected to leave the court to...

    If a few kind words about a passing encounter could be considered significant, then yeah, the doyenne of the liberal wing of the Supreme Court praised the next justice. In reality, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg offered nothing more than a few personal bon mots about Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump’s nominee to join the panel. Despite the attempts late yesterday to spin this as something more significant, Ginsburg got a few laughs from how insubstantial her observations on Gorsuch are: As for the new Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, Ginsburg didn’t have much to say.“I know him I’ve worked...
  • Ginsburg Wears 'Dissent' Collar. (Thanks for hanging in Ruth, Trump appoints your successor.)

    Justice Ginsburg Wears 'Dissent' Collar Following Contentious Election Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared to be wearing her dissent "jabot" on Wednesday —one day after an incredibly divisive and contentious presidential campaign ended in the election of Donald Trump. Ginsburg wore the embellished collar ruffle meant to show disagreement and stray from the majority opinion on decisions before the high court. But there were no court decisions slated to go out on Wednesday. The Supreme Court did not return a request from NBC News for comment. Ginsburg has previously been frank on what she thinks of Trump. "I can't...

    Ginsburg’s ridicule is very symptomatic of the liberal mind and likely to end up aiding Trump in multiple ways. It was only a month ago when, in an effort to make Trump seem unreasonable, pundits were spending several hours/days of airtime and column inches explaining how federal judges are impartial and completely unbiased in response to Trump’s arguments about the Mexican judge in the Trump University legal matter. Now those same pundits and voices are having to defend the transparently obvious bias within the snarky comments presented by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg believes "everything" will be up for grabs if Donald Trump is elected president and has the opportunity to appoint several justices to the high Court. "I don't want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs," Ginsburg said of the presumptive Republican nominee succeeding in his bid for the White House in an interview published Friday by The Associated Press.

    The Supreme Court heard oral arguments today in the case the Little Sisters of the Poor and 37 pro-life groups, universities and companies have filed against the HHS mandate, which forces them to pay for abortion-causing drugs in their employee health care plans. The case, Zubik v. Burwell, involves 37 religious nonprofits such as charities and universities that say the HHS mandate violates their religious beliefs. They say the religious accommodation the Obama administration put together still makes them complicit in covering the abortion-causing drugs. “Hijacking. It seems to me that’s an accurate description of what the government wants to...

    Justice Elena Kagan has officiated for the first time at a same-sex wedding, a Maryland ceremony for her former law clerk and his husband. Kagan presided on Sunday over the wedding of former clerk Mitchell Reich and Patrick Pearsall in the Washington suburb of Chevy Chase, Maryland. Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Monday that the same-sex ceremony was the first at which Kagan officiated. Retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg have previously officiated at the wedding of gay and lesbian couples, including at the Supreme Court. Ginsburg most recently performed the wedding of Washington theater...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I want to go back, ladies and gentlemen, to the Jeffrey Toobin sound bite, not 'cause it's Toobin, but because he read Ruth "Buzzi" Ginsburg dissenting opinion which, by the way, is 35 pages long. That's pretty sweeping dissent for a narrow ruling. Thirty-five pages. And she whines a lot in her dissent. For example, "Until today, religious exemptions had never been extended to any entity operating in 'the commercial, profit-making world.'" I knew I was right about that. I knew that in that sense, I don't think we can call landmark, but it certainly is unprecedented....

    In a strong dissent on the so-called Hobby Lobby case Monday morning, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sharply disagreed with the deciding justices in language so harsh Justice Anthony Kennedy felt the need to respond in his own concurring opinion. “In a decision of startling breadth, the Court holds that commercial enterprises, including corporations, along with partnerships and sole proprietorships, can opt out of any law (saving only tax laws) they judge incompatible with their sincerely held religious beliefs,” Ginsburg wrote. “In the Court’s view, RFRA demands accommodation of a for-profit corporation’s religious beliefs no matter the impact that...

    Fresh from the 2010 Tea Party wave that brought millions of new conservative voters into the Republican ranks and restored the GOP to control of the House of Representatives, Washington’s Republican political class is wasting no time in ensuring that the same grassroots conservative voters who have brought them to the threshold of capturing all three branches of government are permanently frozen out of influence in the Republican Party apparatus. In response, grassroots conservatives have launched an unprecedented Rules fight that threatens to up-end the carefully choreographed coronation of Mitt Romney. The Rules Committee report, which is set to be...

    At 2:00 p.m. today in Tampa, the Republican National Committee, led by Team Romney, is moving to shut down conservative grassroots activists. I’ve been on the phone with several individuals involved in the fight who tell me that the fight is not over, it is only just starting.Specifically, the media is reporting that the rules fight is over because Team Romney is abandoning Ben Ginsberg’s effort to allow candidates to control delegates. Under an initial proposal, delegates would, in effect, be chosen by the presumed nominee’s campaign and not based on votes in the states and delegate selection processes in...

    On the surface it is laughable, but beneath the robe, Ginsberg gives us another glimpse of her statist underwear. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the cerebrally inept U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, who needed to be coached by Liberal judges in front of the bench on how to plead for the Obama's Affordable Care Act, took part in an examination of arias for legal precedent at the American Bar Association’s annual meeting in Chicago. Predicatably, Verilli’s contribution was little noted and soon forgotten; but just as predictably, Ginsberg seized the opportunity to enunciate her totalitarian statist ideology. After...
