Next time it might be 12. or 15. etc. I'd be fine with saying appointments will be postponed within 9 months of a presidential election. No biggie. But, the line needs to be drawn somewhere.

The POTUS's ability to appoint supreme court justices is IMO the most important thing they can do. And, the senate should not be able to block that outside of a reasonable, predetermined time frame.
The way it was discussed during the Merrit Garland attempt by Oh bummer, was that the precedent was that a federal nominee was not done during an election year (last year of a term) for a president when the Senate was controlled by the opposing party... IF the senate and president are of the same party, there's no problem. The nominee can be presented, approved and confirmed if the part so wishes.

In this case, Trump can nominate a new Justice and the senate can approve it right up to the election.

Dems are rabid to get rid of Trump because they know he will outlast RBG.

So there is some consistency regarding this. Thanks for the info.

The only thing that makes me think she is still with us is that Trump has not eluded to a vacancy. A simple tweet that even hinted at another Trump SCOTUS appointment would have completely overshadowed all of the border wall controversy and national emergency blow back. Even a rumor of that nature would send the entire progressive left and liberal media into a tail spin.

Hard to tell. Last reporting was Feb. 15th saying she's back but no pics. Not a peep about her since Feb. 15th, when all the media outlets said she's back. I really don't believe she came back or is even alive. This is like a weird movie. Boggles the mind.

ETA: The only pic they associate w/her being back Feb. 15th was actually taken Jan. 13th, 2018 @ a university in Rhode Island.

Here's some proof...good ruling.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.ff8f9579bd9a


Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, on her second day back on the bench after undergoing cancer surgery in December, announced the court’s decision, saying the Eighth Amendment’s excessive-fines clause protects against government retribution at all levels.

“For good reason, the protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield throughout Anglo-American history: Exorbitant tolls undermine other constitutional liberties,” Ginsburg wrote. “Excessive fines can be used, for example, to retaliate against or chill the speech of political enemies. . . . Even absent a political motive, fines may be employed in a measure out of accord with the penal goals of retribution and deterrence.”

Odd she didn’t have the same opinion of the personal mandate’s $1,500 tax penalty...

Apparently it was a localized tumor so here survival chances are good for her to last another 5 years.

Pancreas transplants are over 90% successful so if she is not metastasized then they may keep her alive for another 10 years. Either way she is gonna get better treatment than any of us can ever afford.

Is there any chance she could still be doing her job?
