A belated Christmas present

Santa is bringing us a new Supreme Court Justice in 2019:
The Supreme Court says Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is missing arguments for the first time in more than 25 years as she recuperates from cancer surgery last month. Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Monday the 85-year-old Ginsburg is continuing to recuperate and work from home after doctors removed two cancerous growths from her left lung on Dec. 21.
Translation: she's in such bad shape she can't be allowed out in public anymore.

I understand why the Left is determined to ride her into her grave, but it's still pretty ghastly. If they had any decency, they would let the sick old woman retire already.

I have doubts that she is even alive, much less able to communicate or make decisions for herself. If she was lucid, Ginsburg would certainly be horrified at the idea of having her comatose body propped up like a black-robed scarecrow just to advance the left's agenda.

The President could easily make an issue of this, if he so wanted to. Appoint someone to "assist" RBG, and find out if she is doing any work on her cases at all.

Blogger Sean Carnegie January 07, 2019 1:36 PM  

Greed has a price evidently. She could have retired under Obama will all the dignity she (allegedly) has left, given Obama his third appointment and left it a leaning-left court for decades.

Instead, she'll give Trump his third and it should make the court right-trending for decades. Awesome.

"...certainly be horrified..."

No she wouldn't. She's a leftie through and through. It's a religious cult. She'd encourage them to use her corpse if it meant advancing the cause. That's what zealotry does to a person.

We might not even realize she's dead until flies start buzzing around her and the stench of putrefaction can't be covered up by heavy perfume anymore.

Oh, in theory she would heartily encourage this being done to any other person. But the actual truth of being publicly wheeled around as a drooling vegetable, watching helplessly while unable to perform the most basic functions? No, no. Her pride would never countenance that. Not that we'll ever know, because things are now so bad she can't just sleep through oral arguments.

She would stay on for the political agenda until she can't lift the finger or whatever else is needed to cast her mark.

After all, she only needs to vote, or be told how she would 'like to' vote, to continue her position.

Regardless, there is only so much an ivy drip of power can do to keep an old Women's Libber alive.

She already had three broken ribs from a fall and on top of that she just had her chest cracked.

Maybe if she had been doing exceptionally well to start with she might be able to recover but I strongly suspect she has now begun the downhill slide.

A year to at most eighteen months is all she has left at this point.

That's probably a safe bet. In any case, lung cancer with two nodes requiring removal is a death sentence. It's only a matter of time. Now what was the quote my wife found when her mother had lung cancer? From memory it was something like "5 year survival rate is anecdotal". I believe the average was six months.

Blogger Weak January 07, 2019 2:57 PM  

There is lung cancer, and then there is LUNG CANCER. Some people reach five years or more. But not those with two nodes that likely metastasized from somewhere else in the body. Then, you're right, six months.

Or in the case of RBG, was fatal as of December 2018.

O/T ?

I was standing in the checkout line at the grocery store yesterday and saw a magazine on display, with one of the tired old black-and-white photos of Paul, Ringo, Lennon, and the other guy. The Beatles.

I thought, "Fucking Boomers. They never quit." We're supposed to celebrate shit from the 1960s as if it were evergreen! Like...Jackie O...Woodstock...etc.

Then I spotted a second magazine on the stand. Life Magazine, think. You can go check your local grocery to see which magazine it is. The cover story: "The 60s - The Decade When Everything Changed."

I thought to myself, "Fucking Boom-" but stopped mid-thought.

Because I saw the light!

It dawned on me that the problem isn't Boomers. The reason this stuff never goes away is not Boomers. No. This stuff goes on, and it has been doing so over multiple generations now, for a different reason.

Put your thinking cap on, like I finally did. Who would celebrate "The Decade When Everything Changed"? Satanists? Harley-Davidson aficionados? Druggies?

What changed Everything in the 1960s, in the United States? Jewish power took control fully.

They celebrate it endlessly. Or do you believe the media are owned by Presbyterians or something?

They celebrate their takeover of American culture. They have been doing this for decades.

They will continue doing this. We will see celebrations of "The 60s - The Decade When Everything Changed" forever. It will be going on 50 years from now, assuming the JQ hasn't been solved by that time.

We will see the ephemera, or what should naturally be ephemera, of the 1960s *forever*. It is and will remain a cultural institution here, no matter how many generations die out. Jews will be ululating about Changing Everything to the end of time, just like they continue to ululate about their massacres of various enemy groups for the past ~2,000 years.

Boomers dying out won't make any difference. Because the Jews will still be there, probably.

You will see the Beatles, Jackie O, Jackie Robinson, the three Alabama girls, MLK, pute à juif Marilyn Monroe, Emmett Till, Einstein with his tongue grossly sticking out, etc. - for the remainder of your natural life, even if you live to be 120 years old!

Again: the Boomers, Con or Lib, have nothing to do with this, except to continue being the decaying suckers, or call them "first adopters," of all that garbage.

Who buys those magazines? I can't imagine anyone's doing so. They are intended to sit there as propaganda - as a continuous, subtle demoralizing campaign. From every magazine stand, they monthly or weekly proclaim the victory of not-America over America. I'm sure they give the ululaters a warm glow, though, as well as give the old suckers a reassuring but no-longer-satiating hit of the old narcotic.

Come to think of it, why is Lincoln's mug on every third issue of, say, Life Magazine? Do we see George Washington's face on every third issue? No. Why not? Because Lincoln stands for another decade when "Everything Changed" - against us.

In any case, I cannot believe that Boomers or any other generation, no matter how low they stoop, are purchasing these trash magazines. There is some data out there about some magazines being subsidized by the government because no one buys them and because their real purpose is not commercial anyway. They are there, all such mags, for the same reason that the ubiquitous "Big Brother Is Watching You" posters in Orwell's novel _1984_ are on every wall and in every shop, staring at the proles who are gettin' their smokes, tampons, or Fentanyl-mimicking painkillers...they are reminding them not to raise their heads too high, because the heights are controlled by the enemy.

Blogger DJT January 07, 2019 4:01 PM  

A serious flaw in the Constitution is the inability to remove an incapacitated Supreme Court justice.

We need an equivalent to the 25th Amendment to enable a unanimous vote of the Justices to remove a Justice for incapacity or bad health. Also, maybe, mandatory retirement at age 80 or something.

Blogger Johnny January 07, 2019 4:15 PM  

@46

More O/T I guess.

What I notice is that all our new cultural heroes are individuals who are culturally divisive in that they represent one group against the rest. Martin Luther is one example. He is a hero only in that we are taking his side. If the worm turns and the other side gains power, it could easily happen that George Wallace would be the new hero, another divisive figure because he was taking the other side. And hey, took a bullet for it. And thus was converted into a hero. "He tried to save us." could be a slogan.

And if you think the above is too far fetched, just look at how the German culture has flipped around in the 20th century. First intensely nationalistic. Then into internationalism with the Wiemar Republic nuevo elite in Berlin. Followed by Hitler’s intense racism. And now into this globalism stuff. Amazing how seriously people take this stuff when it is obviously so ephemeral.

Blogger Up from the pond January 07, 2019 4:21 PM  

If libs can ride Ruthie's corpse like a surfboard into a new era of penumbras and emanations, then we ought to be able to do the same with Thomas. Mandatory retirement at 80, hell!

Cary wrote:the Trumpslide will be on

Okay, but it will have to be without Florida and Texas. Thanks to immigration, both states will be majority non-white by then. We barely squeaked out victories there this time. "Ballot harvesting" wouldn't work if the margins weren't so thin. If we had the electorate of the Reagan years, or even the Clinton or Bush years, then absolutely there would be a Trumpslide. But, like I try to tell all my older conservative acquaintances, the world has changed since you were 30 years old. They don't really believe it. I'm afraid they will wake up 10 years from now in a majority non-white America and say, "Wha? This wasn't supposed to happen for another 50 or 100 years!" And if we're counting on Kanye, holy moley, good luck.

I hope I'm wrong. In any case, let's work for the Trumpslide like hell. We're going to need to, even if Trump cures cancer or sends a Spaceforce to Mars.

After Thurgood Marshall and Harry Blackmun were senile/stroke addled but were propper up for 15 years past expiration and had the ACS and ACLU-fed clerks writing their opinions and waving their arms, its not far fetched to think the Left would be shooting her up with adrenaline every day to doddle into court meetings, or have an "assistant" wheel her into the judges' conferences and "repeat" the words into her ears. The other 4 lefty justices and that sheepish coward John Roberts will pretend its legit, and if Kavanaugh/Alito/Thomas raise a peepp, they'll be called paranoid delusional conspiracy theorists---like with Cernovich and the Hillary Clinton parkinson's coverup.

Moloch demands his due. the Left worships child murder above all, and this is about keeping it enshrined in national law. You see how much they love killing kids---they are screeching in panic at losing their blood sacrifices.

The tie-in to Ruthie is that she's old news, too. The movie about her will be just additional ululating. I wonder if her mug will supplant Jackie O's or MLK's one day? Certainly it will take their place beside them. The real question is who will get kicked out of the pantheon to make room for her? Some lesser type, Elvis maybe.

(Never mind that not only can they impeach judges, but they can abolish every federal court except the Supreme court.) -- And then when there's some POS 'law' like ObamaCare, the Justices whine and "oh, there's nothing I can do!" (Despite being patently unconstitutional in several ways.)

I myself am hoping she can hold out for a few months.

If she dies right now, the Democrats will happily cave on funding The Wall, in exchange for getting another Paul Stevens on the the bench.

If on the other hand she can last until summer then war of the The Wall will be over and done with.

@5 - She'd encourage them to use her corpse if it meant advancing the cause. That's what zealotry does to a person.

Are you suggesting that her corpse cannot identify as a living person? Check your breathing privilege you $#!&lord!

We might not even realize she's dead until flies start buzzing around her and the stench of putrefaction can't be covered up by heavy perfume anymore.

We passed that point a while back, so, we're gonna need a new test.

@58 - Scalia didn't expect it, unless he was the one who put the pillow on his own face and sat on it for good measure.

His doctor told him not to sleep like that. At least he didn't suicide with six shots to the back of the head.

Rumor was she broke her ribs falling onto the couch. She's 'survived' pancreatic cancer. She's a goner.
No way they can hide her. Trump' already been hinting at replacing her. You could hide things in the old days, but even the current media wouldn't be able to hide that.

"She will soldier on as resolutely committed to the cause as a Marine who jumps on a grenade to save his buddies."

Except for one difference.

The Marine sacrifices his life, in an act of honor.

RGB refuses to retire, for nothing but the sake of holding and wielding power over unborn children, and those who would save them.

Trump is not a fool. The one thing Republicans want more than a wall is conservative SC justices. No way he would use a nomination as a bargaining chip.

Blogger Dirk Manly January 08, 2019 7:07 AM  

One thing I have noticed about Trump....

He bargains with the left (and it seems, only the left) the same way they bargain with everybody else -- in bad faith. He'll trot out their pie-in-the-sky dream ideal, get some concessions out of them, and then withdraw it a couple days later. It's good to see them getting a taste of their own medicine.

RBG is likely already at the "Weekend at Bernie's" stage. I will go along with this speculation, as if there was any way to show her alive in public, THEY would do that.

Blogger flyingtiger January 08, 2019 10:25 AM  

#46 You are right. The only change of any importance in the 60s was the mid engine cars taking over the Indy 500. When they talk about the 60s, they never mention auto racing. The 70s and 80s had some important moments, but they are forgotten The collapse of Communism in 89 was more important than anything that happened in the 60s.
The 60s had the 1965 immigration act, the civil rights act of 1964 which both would be tools for gaining more power. In the 60s Jewish control of news and media would be complete. No wonder they like the 60s.

Much ado about nothing, in the sense that the Weekend-at-Ginsburg's gig is simply another brick in the Occasional-Cortex wall of shame.

What does it mean when a nation-state's system is so phenomenally sclerotic that open imbeciles and semi-comatose, senile crones are the Wizards of Oz?

Only a nation of Idiots is so ruled. Never has a vast population of humans searched so fervently for the return of Natural Selection's culling those who never should have made the cut.

We're near a century past HL Mencken's observation that ever decent man is ashamed of the government that rules over him.

Blogger dc.sunsets January 08, 2019 4:30 PM  

@98, are you daft? The 1960's saw the dollar cut free from any consistent tangible yardstick (silver) and it was the decade where Middle Americans accepted the entire Left Catechism. It was like adding nitromethane to the disastrous changes in the 1910's (direct election of senators, the Fed, the Income Tax.)

It's difficult now to obtain, but a graph of the monthly closes of the Dow Jones Industrial Average from 1928 forward reveals that something extraordinary happened in the 60's. Americans went off their rockers then, and sanity hasn't returned even yet.

But it will. The hangover from the Party will be Biblical.

Are you unaware that, on the national level, the Republican party has no intention whatsoever to overturn Roe v. Wade? They only do lip-service so they can harvest the votes from the bible-thumping, gun-clutching rubes. The same with gun rights; when was the last time you heard a national-level Republican put forward even the idea of repeal of (a) 1934 National Firearms Act, (b) 1968 Gun Control Act, and/or (c) 1986 Firearm Owners Protection Act?

See above. The Republican-party doesn't want conservative justices, they want status quo: this is why they're always playing the underdog powerless loser, instead of playing the cards they DO have to win. (The Republican-base is another matter altogether; they're tired of backing losers and people who don't fight for their goals.)

The latter. If it were only the former we could get rid of the useless-at-best-traitors-and-subversives-at-worst class with ease precisely because it would be obvious that it was lies.
