Supreme Court (SCOTUS) Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized yet again after suffering from a fever and the chills.
Ginsburg, 87, is currently holed up in The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Doctors performed a procedure to clean her bile duct stent, and she is expected to stay hospitalized at the facility for a few days.
“The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment,” SCOTUS spokesperson Kathleen Arberg said in a statement.
Big League Politics has reported on Ginsburg’s recent run-ins with cancer, which caused her to miss significant time on the bench just last year:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is sick yet again. She missed legal arguments today due to supposed “stomach bug” that rendered her ill.
Chief Justice John Roberts made the announcement that RBG was “indisposed due to illness.” Her illness forced her to miss courtroom arguments for two cases.
RBG’s health has taken a turn for the worse over the past year, as she has undergone two cancer scares and suffered broken ribs from a fall. She is the oldest judge on the SCOTUS right now at the age of 86, and liberals fear that her waning condition will allow President Donald Trump to replace her with a strong conservative.
RBG has had four separate bouts with cancer, with the most recent coming over the summer when she was treated with radiation over a three-week period.
Ginsburg is steadfastly hanging onto her SCOTUS seat, doggedly refusing to step down despite her many health problems. She has been a massive critic of President Donald Trump since before he was elected to office.
“He is a faker,” Ginsburg said of Trump in 2016. “He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. … How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that.”
“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” she added.
Now that Ginsburg has to live through the reality of a Trump presidency, she desperately wants to hang on to her SCOTUS seat so he will not appoint her successor. With her mounting health concerns, she may not have a choice but to allow President Trump to choose her replacement in the very near future.
The Push to Get Joe Biden Out of the Presidential Debates Has Begun
Trying to get a free pass.
The New York Times published an op-ed dismissing the value of presidential debates on Monday, claiming that the electoral tradition has become little more than “unrevealing quip contests” that resemble professional wrestling for the uneducated rubes.
The op-ed is probably the most prominent attempt to undermine the plans for the events, with author Elizabeth Drew arguing the debates lack substance. She claims that the American public is blissfully unaware that well-known presidential debate moments are meaningless, pointing to Ronald Reagan’s 1980 “there you go again” debate admonition to Jimmy Carter.
Some Democrats have quietly worried about Biden’s prospects in the three contests, and the article may be the most public call to find the candidate a way out of appearing on a debate stage with Donald Trump.
Biden’s plain tendency to become forgetful and exhibit mental gaffes has become a concern, especially considering that some within the Biden campaign have noticed his cognitive issues tend to be most potent in the evenings in which the three debates are currently scheduled in.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the three contests are currently slated to be held without a live audience, precluding any attempts on the part of organizers to stack the university halls in which they’ll be held with a crowd of Biden supporters who hoot and cheer at any remark made by the Democrat. A similar audience format had worked in great effect in the 2012 presidential election, with a progressive crowd serving as in-house fans for Barack Obama in a debate moderated by Candy Crowley.
Biden has agreed to participate in the three traditional debate contests of the presidential election, although he had dismissed an offer from the Trump campaign to conduct even more debates before election, with the latter pointing to reduced campaign presence due to the coronavirus epidemic.
It remains to be seen if the Democratic nominee will abide by his debate commitment.
