After years of false promises, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has finally made the world a better place by exiting from it. Her near-death experiences had reached a number where it was starting to look as if she was immortal. She was in the hospital more than the typical nurse, but somehow always managed to recover. It turns out that her deal with Old Scratch did have an expiry date and the world rejoices. They announced her death Friday night, but who knows when she really died.
As is custom when a Progressive goblin dies, the liberal media will carry on as if she was the most important person in history. They had already made movies about her that no one watched, so they will all be wearing black armbands this week. Whatever funeral services they have for her will be turned into another circus. Maybe in honor of George Floyd, peace be upon him, they will drop her corpse next to his. Then pilgrims can pay respects to both on the same trip.
Ginsberg was the example of everything that has gone wrong with America. Her tenure as a justice was defined by her doctrinaire screeds against ordered liberty. The only reason she was on the court was due to the unwritten rule that at least four justices must be Progressive fanatics, preferably Jewish ones. Her career on the lower court made clear that she would always follow orders from the Left. She did not write a single opinion that was not known in advance.
Of course, the issue in her final days was the fact that she was nothing more than an animated corpse, but she refused to retire. There was no way she was lucid enough and competent enough to perform her duty, but the system allows a justice to stay on until they take their last breath. In theory, Congress can remove them, but that never happens, so the judges can stick around until death. With Ginsberg, it did not matter as all of her opinions were written in advance for her.
If one were hoping to reform America in order to prevent what appears to be a bloody breakup, the first place to start is the court. A new rule of Zeleucus should be imposed, where any judge proposing to overturn a statute or ancient custom must appear before a citizen’s council with a noose around his neck. If the council votes against the proposal the judge is immediately strangled. This would eliminate subversives like Ginsberg from the legal system in a generation.
After that, no judge should be allowed to serve past 75. There are plenty of people with supple minds well into their 80’s, but people near the end of their days should not be defining the future. Allowing a grand council of geezers to bind future courts and future legislatures is judicial entrenchment. There are no perfect solutions to this, but preventing people like Ginsberg from loitering on the court is first step. It gives each generation a chance to have their own court.
Of course, the dominant role of the court in our political life is something that would have to be addressed. Rule by robed masters with lifetime appointments is not only un-American, it is anti-Western. Rule by wise man or holy man is an oriental import that no occidental people should embrace. Judges and courts are for administering the laws that are written by the people’s rulers. Whether it is a representative body or a monarch, the laws are written by the sovereign, not the courts.
Because the Left subverted the court in the last century, we are condemned to have increasingly deranged nominating processes. The circus around replacing the last left-wing justice lasted months, so you can be sure the people operating death squads in our cities will put on a grand show this time. The planned colored revolution against Trump now has the perfect vehicle. Whoever Trump nominates will be the center of a manufactured revolt in the streets of Washington.
Despite what Mitch McConnell is saying now, there is a good chance that this gets kicked down the road. Both parties are pulling out all the stops to help Biden, so making the election about who picks the replacement for Ginsberg is the smart play. This will get the woke women out to replace the BLM and Antifa rioters, who appear to have run out of steam. The election can now be about female empowerment, rather than the right of non-whites to loot and pillage.
On the other hand, holding off the nomination could drive up enthusiasm for Trump, as even so-called conservative understands what is at stake. Gun rights people are already highly motivated to vote in November. Now that there is a chance to tilt the court their way for a generation, they will be hyper-enthusiastic. The social conservatives will also be activated by this news. Trump has signaled he intends to appoint an anti-abortion advocate if he has the chance.
In the long run, none of this matters. As we have seen with so many justices, once they get on the court their skin suit falls away to reveal their reptilian nature. Whoever Trump nominates will go native and do the bidding of the Inner Party. Like all of the other institutions, the court is only a weapon against the people now, never a weapon on behalf of the people. This is the result of being ruled by an alien elite. Still, Ginsberg is dead and Lucifer has another soul to torment.

About a year ago they sent me some of their stuff. Up until that point, I had never heard of chaga, but I gave a try and it is very good. It is like a tea, but it has a milder flavor. It’s hot here in Lagos, so I’ve been drinking it cold. It is a great summer beverage.
