BREAKING: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who charted a course for women’s rights at the U.S. Supreme Court and became a legal, cultural and feminist icon, has died from complications from cancer. She was 87.

Just days before Ginsburg's death, as her strength waned, she dictated this statement to her granddaughter: "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed."

She carried too much weight, and for too long. We should live in an America where we only need to send condolences to everyone who knew and loved Justice Ginsburg, and not to the nation and democracy as a whole. I wish that we could simply mourn her. Alas.

The Republicans established their principle. If they don’t follow it now Democrats must promise to add two new justices to the court if they take the senate, for a total of 11. Republican corruption can only be met with the strongest means.

BREAKING: Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died. She leaves behind a vital legacy

It seems like the only available move for Democrats is to a) Go on a public relations blitz hyping the “McConnell rule” and trying to tie marginal Republican senators to it and b) levy a credible threat of court packing if the seat is filled before January 2021.

BREAKING: We filed a records request to learn more about sterilization procedures performed on people in ICE detention. And we’re calling on Congress to shut down Irwin County Detention Center and defund ICE.
