Is Ruth Bader Ginsberg alive?

January 29, 2019
Ruth Bader Ginsburg watch nears the end of its second month
By Taylor Day

It has been 54 days since the public laid eyes on the 85-year-old Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and her absence is prompting calls for proof of life. The last time she was seen was on December 6, 2018, when she heard arguments in person at the Court. Since then, she underwent surgery on December 21 of last year after two cancerous growths from her left lung were discovered and removed. All official statements have been issued by people close to her and meant to assure the public that she is recovering quietly.

However, RBG has missed oral arguments this month for the first time in her 25-year career on the bench, and it is raising anxieties about how well and if she is recovering. It has been reported that the White House is taking steps toward preparing a short list of Supreme Court nominees in the event of Justice Ginsburg's death or departure. Adding even more fuel to the speculation, Fox & Friends "accidentally" showed a memorial graphic that claimed that Ginsburg is dead. The show apologized shortly after and blamed it on a "control room error," but it's worth noting that the graphic even being made and loaded is a disturbing, macabre preparation.

She was scheduled to attend a function called "An Evening with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg" in Los Angeles on Tuesday evening at the Skirball Cultural Center, but the event was "regrettably canceled" because she is still recuperating from her recent surgery. A second engagement on February 6 with her and philanthropist David Rubenstein in New York City was also canceled.

The reason her absence is so monumental is that if her health has compromised her ability to do her job as a member of the highest court in the United States, her removal will give President Trump his third justice nomination of his first term. This would be an apocalypse to the liberal Democrats, who would be faced with the most conservative Supreme Court in modern history for decades to come. If you thought the Kavanaugh nomination was rough, imagine if Democrats doubled their efforts the third time around.

Could this be why Nancy Pelosi is so defiantly postponing the president's State of the Union address – because it might reveal to the world an empty seat where RBG is supposed to be? Although the justice didn't attend, in protest, President Trump's first State of the Union in 2018 and Supreme Court justice attendance is by no means required, it would be terrible optics as the nation wonders where and how she is.

Some left-leaning voices have condemned the calls for proof that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is still capable of performing her duties as justice. In a display of hypocrisy that is now too common, here is an article from CNN demanding the same confirmation after First Lady Melania Trump avoided the public for 19 days after a minor operation.

One wishes Justice Ginsburg a speedy recovery and a healthy future, with the sincere hope that she can make it to the president's State of the Union address next week.

Are we sure she wasn't aborted heading into her 347th trimester? She is in NY right?

But on a more serious note...for rightware leaning cases, if she can't perform it's an ideal time to be in front of the SC, worst case outcome would be a 4-4 decision which establishes no precedent. Basically they'd have nearly nothing to lose right now.

You're right and this isn't a Russia thread so I don't want to clog the gears but if you think there is nothing supporting a possibility of Russian coordination with the Trump campaign, the opioid epidemic has hit your household hard. Note I said the Trump campaign, you know the people that surround Trump. That's the comparison I made.

That would be a conspiracy. It's just a benign one.

We'll have to agree to disagree on that then.

I simply can not imagine a person her age, with the ailments that she has suffered through being able to make sound legal decisions - regardless of her staff. It is well past time for her to give up her seat to retirement. This crap is getting out of hand - to the point where one has to wonder about the old idea of a "shadow government" aren't, perhaps, real.
You do know he just made that shit up, right? I mean, you know that?

Um, yeah.

If you read the thread, these idiots think she's DEAD.

In January, 2019, there would be absolutely no reason to hide that.

In any event, I think it's perfectly reasonable for people to want to see evidence that the optimistic and cheerful recovery stories aren't just BS. I'm not saying they have a right to know, just that it seems pretty reasonable.
Well, they're the same group of people who demanded proof that Obama wasn't born in Kenya. How did that work out for them?

Clarence Thomas sleeps through oral arguments. Why aren't you bleeding all over the place about that?

I can't see where it is unrealistic, after a period of recovery (as in now) to expect, at the very least, a "sighting" of this old woman. The American people deserve that, at the very least.
Is that in the Constitution? How did they handle it before the age of television?

IIRC, there was a comment in the post I was responding to about how difficult it would be to get so many people to keep her condition quiet. I was disagreeing primarily with that point, because I don't think there would have to be that many people involved, at least in the early stages of an absence from public view.
