    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is something of a hero of the left. And unlike her colleague Anthony Kennedy, who recently announced his retirement and gave Donald Trump the chance to appoint a new Supreme Court Justice, Ginsburg says she's going nowhere fast. [snip] Many are breathing a sigh of relief at Ginsburg's assurance that she wants to stay on the Supreme Court. Liberals are afraid that Trump's pick to replace Justice Kennedy, Brett Kavanaugh, will tilt the highest court in the land heavily conservative. If Ginsburg were to give up her seat, the court would only have Barack Obama-appointed Justices...

    While “Avengers: Infinity War” has dominated the box office in recent weeks, a new documentary about a different kind of hero has still managed to draw crowds. “RBG,” a look at the life and career of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (the glass-ceiling shattering jurist who became a meme), secured the 10th slot at the domestic box office this weekend with $1.16 million. That’s a major feat considering that the non-fiction film, directed by Betsy West and Julie Cohen, was showing in just 180 screens. Magnolia Pictures and Participant Media’s collaboration launched in limited release on May 4, with...

    Director Mimi Leder said Wednesday that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg "loves" the upcoming biopic On the Basis of Sex, in which Felicity Jones plays the justice. "Madame Justice loves the movie. Her nephew wrote it and she approved the script. Her reviews of Ms. Jones were magnificent," Leder said during a Focus Features luncheon at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. On the Basis of Sex will begin a limited run in theaters on Nov. 9, the heart of awards season, and will also be timed to Ginsburg's 25th anniversary on Supreme Court. Jones portrays Ginsburg as a crusading...

    Supreme Court justice says the #MeToo movement is important, but so is due process.Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg thinks colleges and universities are violating the due process rights of students facing sexual misconduct charges. The Atlantic's Jeffrey Rosen asked the Court's second-ever female justice for her thoughts on the #MeToo movement. Unsurprisingly, Ginsburg was happy about the increased public attention being paid to the problems of sexual harassment and gender-based inequality in the workplace. But she was also concerned about protecting the due process rights of the accused—particularly on college campuses: Rosen: What about due process for the accused?...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg doubled down on comments she made last year that sexism "no doubt" played a role in Hillary Clinton's 2016 election defeat. During a Columbia University Women's Conference event on Sunday, Ginsburg was asked to clarify remarks she made last September, in which she said sexism was a "major, major factor" in how the election played out. "I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized," Ginsburg said. "I think...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she would support changing the Electoral College. “There are some things I would like to change, one is the Electoral College,” she said late Monday at Stanford Law School in California, according to CNN. “But that would require a constitutional amendment, and amending our Constitution is powerfully hard to do,” she added. Ginsburg also lamented partisan divisions in Congress, which she said hurt the confirmation process for justices. “I wish there was a way I could wave a magic wand and put back when people were respectful of each other and the Congress...

    Sure, the wall will be a nice touch.  But enforcing existing policies that were enacted to  keep terrorists and illegals out of the country can be just as effective. Pulling the U.S. out of the UN’s insane global migration and refuge compact will also assist in controlling who gains access to our country and resources.  And implementing a travel ban against countries known to harbor terrorism and terrorists is an act that any sane person in this country would have heartily supported not so very long ago. But in our deeply divided country we have activist judges who think nothing...

    The Supreme Court is allowing the Trump administration to fully enforce a ban on travel to the United States by residents of six mostly Muslim countries. The justices, with two dissenting votes, said Monday that the policy can take full effect even as legal challenges against it make their way through the courts. The action suggests the high court could uphold the latest version of the ban that Trump announced in September. The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. Lower courts had said people from those nations with a claim of a “bona fide”...

    As the political world obsesses over the latest sexual-harassment scandals and policy wonks scrutinize the latest tax-reform proposal, the Trump administration is quietly restoring constitutional governance. Although Congress has been unable to pass legislation and President Trump faces record-low approval rates, his hiring of “the best people” in certain key areas has enabled the transformation of the judiciary — as well as reworking the bureaucracy (often called the Fourth Branch). A president has few powers more important than picking judges. Tax deals can sunset and regulations can be rescinded — Congress has used the Congressional Review Act to eliminate 14...

    EXCLUSIVE: Felicity Jones will star as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in On the Basis Of Sex, with Mimi Leder set to direct for Focus Features and Participant Media. The film will shoot in Montreal in September. The drama follows the travails of Ginsburg as she faced numerous obstacles to her fight for equal rights throughout her career. Daniel Stiepleman wrote the script, which made the 2014 Black List. Robert W. Cort is producing with Ram Bergman exec producing. Ginsberg was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1993 by then-President Bill Clinton, becoming only the second female justice (after...

    National Review ^ | 06/26/2017 | David French
    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...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the late Justice Antonin Scalia were honored Monday by Allegheny College in Pennsylvania. During a speech she gave at the event, Justice Ginsburg described Senator Lindsey Graham as one of the “women of the Senate.” Justice Ginsburg gave a brief talk about civility and her friendship with the late Justice Scalia. She then made an implied contrast between the era in which she and Scalia were confirmed and the present day. “I thought back to the 1993 confirmation of my nomination to the court,” she said. She continued, “The hearing was altogether civil....

    Yesterday, the legendary Andrew Malcolm published a piece here which speculates about other Supreme Court seats which may come up for grabs while Donald Trump is in office and what the fallout from such a turn of events might be. This is a grim game at the best of times because pondering an opening on the Supreme Court is frequently only thought of as meaning one thing, and it involves six people carrying a casket. But that’s not the reality in most cases. Many of us tend to think that accepting a seat on that court winds up turning into...

    Don’t think for a minute this will qualify as a “second look at” moment on the Right — but it might on the Left. With progressives cheering the NFL’s national anthem protests as yet another truth-to-power moment — and the NFL itself almost preening over its own inaction — one might have expected one of the progressive Left’s icons to fall into line with the other cheerleaders. Instead, Ruth Bader Ginsburg might have added a new dimension to her “Notorious RBG” nickname: When asked by Couric how she feels about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and others athletes, refusing...

    Many years ago, journalist Michael Kinsley secured a place in our history when he observed that “a faux pas is when you blurt out the truth in Washington.” Last Friday, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg committed a faux pas in a New York Times interview, blurting out the truth that she is intensely partisan and decides major cases on ideological grounds. Federal judges are supposed to keep out of the political mud, but Justice Ginsburg opined that Donald Trump would be a national disaster. “I can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president,” she...

    Let me be the first to declare, that if this presidential election winds up before the Supreme Court, and I truly hope it does not (for many reasons, including those spelled out in my book Men In Black), Ruth Bader Ginsburg must recuse herself from any role whatsoever in any consideration of the case. Her repeated political comments about Donald Trump and the race the last few days clearly disqualify her. Indeed, if the constitutional system was working, she'd resign or be removed.
