Steve Gruber, The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg from cancer on Friday may be the BIGGEST political story of 2020
Here are Three Big Things you need to know right now.
The Nation seemed to stop on Friday night, when the news of the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg swept the nation like a grass fire. It seems a lot of people knew it was coming including President Trump, who just 9 days earlier updated his list of candidates.
The President has now pared his list to three Federal Judges. All women we are told and we are also told that he will make that announcement very swiftly and get the clock rollin. Can Mitch McConnell deliver? This is the biggest game of his life.
Believe it or not, the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg from cancer on Friday may be the BIGGEST political story of 2020. You see the pandemic will go away and riots will stop, but those that sit on the nation’s high court can often do so for more than a generation. Ginsburg was there for 27 years, a stalwart for progressives and their radical ideas to transform America by using the courts.
Sometimes it worked, pushing through decisions on gay marriage, rights for transgendered people and Obamacare, and sometimes it didn’t on the Second Amendment or funding religious schools.
And when it comes to precedent, RBG was confirmed in just 42 days. Keep that in mind as Democrats squeal about fairness.
