Stories of the Week

Story 1

NBA Players Wear Special Lace Collars To Honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Summary: NBA players are honoring the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg this week by wearing pretty lace collars just like Notorious RBG used to wear

  • Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died September 18, 2020, at the age of 87, from complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer

  • She became known as a  leftist icon and dubbed The Notorious RBG by a law student (like the rapper The Notorious B.I.G.)

  • Bill Clinton nominated her to SCOTUS 1993 (Bill was elected with 43% of popular vote in 1992)

  • She became known as a liberal wing of the court and argued for gender equality and women’s “rights”

  • Her death is right up on the election, leftist celebrities and media types like Reza Azlan are doubling down on threatening to burn everything down to the ground if the Republicans “ram” through a judge

  • Romney said he would not block the vote and would vote based on the merits of the nominee, and that Trump as President can constitutionally nominate and the Senate can give advice and consent. This comes amid calls of hypocrisy since in 2016 the Republican led Senate blocked a vote on Merrick Garland nominated by Barack Obama.

  • Trump has promised to nominate a woman. Because that’s important for some reason.

  • Lefty types on Twitter seem to think this article was real. Really.
