Barely Coherent: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes an Appearance…

A few weeks ago American media began heavily promoting a generally odd video of Supreme Court Justice doing a workout.  It seemed weird.  Today, the motive of putting out that video becomes transparent.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appears at an event hosted by the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA).  Watch:

.

How long can the left-wing apparatchik maintain a ruse that Justice Ginsburg is fit to remain on the court?

          On her FACE, actually.

          yeah, Justice Scalia “always slept with a pillow on his face.” And “Hell no, we don’t need no autopsy!” said the state coroner — who pronounced his cause of death Without Ever Seeing His Body.

            @Beverly: Justice Scalia was murdered to enable an open SC seat!

            RGB held her seat warm in collusion and by design with Hussein and HRC.

            The tarmac meeting was recorded by none other than our patriot Mike Rogers and subsequently stored in a mislabeled file to prevent discovery by the deep state. Rogers had deep state agents placed and another Snowden2 caught with 10,000 disk of stolen national security info.
            He was indicted by our possum Jeff Sessions recently and is awaiting his long prison term locked up.

            This tarmac meeting with Lynch, Bill C and participation of Hussein and HRC will be published to us in due time.

            Always remember we are in the justice phase because we already won the war! 🙂

              The Dems no doubt expected a wave election with HRC swept into office with a supermajority in the Senate like the one Obama enjoyed his first 2 years in office. President Clinton could replace Scalia and Ginsberg with radical activist justices who would make Ginsberg look like Scalia. And thanks to Harry Reid scrapping the filibuster for judicial nominees the GOP would be powerless to stop it.

              HOWEVER, I seriously doubt Scalia was murdered. An elderly man, in poor health, died in his sleep in a manner consistent with his known health issues. Nothing suspicious about it.

        Unfortunately, she is way to invested in her radical orthodoxy to willingly vacate her seat and allow Trump to nominate her replacement. She will either have to be judged incompetent or wait for nature to take its course. In either case it does not appear to be a long wait. In the meantime, Kavanaugh’s imminent appointment will secure a conservative majority on the court. Her vacancy will guarantee a turn that into a conservative super-majority for decades to come. Like Obama she can see her legal legacy about to be erased from history’s blackboard.

I no more want a ‘conservative opinion’ than I want a ‘leftist opinion’; I want a constitutionally allowed and justified opinion.

    Oh goodness. She is really failing rapidly now. Most conservatives don’t know that she ruled the right way in reversing the wrongful conviction of Arthur Andersen LLP accounting firm and in reversing the government’s over-reach and abuse of the ‘honest services’ wire fraud statute–among other cases. Obviously, now, it is time for her to step down, but her dislike for this President clouds her judgment on leaving the bench. I fear she will literally die on it. She does appear in LICENSED TO LIE which provides a front row seat for a season of the Supreme Court.

      And extremely frail, she seems.

      I always enjoy reading your comments and watching your contributions on cable news, Sidney. One thing that bothered me about RBG, and I think Breyer and some other justices, is that she often spoke of the SCOTUS to possibly consider the laws of other nations when deciding cases here. Perhaps I misunderstood? Only the US Constitution should count, not any other nation’s, nor any other international court decisions or trends. She didn’t seem to make a lot of waves when she came out with that either.

        But, yes, she was coherent, and still a deft manipulator. Her body though is a reflection of her soul, twisted. And she is no doubt in the hands of 20th century medicine, so they will wheel her to the bench for at least another year.

      And she seemed really uncomfortable sitting there. I wonder how long that whole interview was, and how that compares to the length of an average day on the Bench when Court is in session. What I’m getting at is if it’s long enough that she gets feeling really bad while oral arguments are going on, it HAS to affect her thought processes. No way can her head be totally into what’s being said if she’s in a lot of pain… and if she’s on some kind of meds during that time, well THAT could have an impact too.

And we’ll never again see another Repub president.

    Laying aside politics, which is extremely difficult in light of the left’s reprehensible beliefs, actions and hatreds, let’s remember that she and Justice Scalia were the best of friends. With their spouses, many a wonderful evening was spent together. She loved him as a great gal and the feeling was mutual. So in honor of his memory, let’s not wish her personal ill.

    Obviously Justice Ginsburg is on the opposite side of the fence on most of the issues that we care about. And I believe that she has been part of the judicial tyranny that has been responsible for thwarting the will of the majority of the country. With that being said, it pains me to see anyone in this condition. Her mind is still sharp, although that has diminished somewhat. Physically though, she appears to be struggling as she, like all of us, inevitably must succumb to to this world. She needs our prayers. I pray that God watches over her and eases any physical pain that she may be experiencing. I also pray that her mind stays sharp for whatever time she has left on this planet.

    In the Supreme Court she did some good, she also did quite a bit of bad, through her votes, but I always believed in her heart (UNlike a bitter certain NoName senator passed recently) she had good intentions and even some, often woefully misguided and with bad consequences, love for the people.

    All I wish for her is to retire in peace, TOMORROW, to admit that she is not fit for the job anymore (she hasn’t, for quite some time now), to live her remaining time in happiness with her family…. and for our gorgeous President to sit in her place a judge at the right of Scalia, at the right of Thomas, at the right of Rehnquist.

    It doesn’t matter that she may have been holding out for Hillary to name her successor.
    The fact is she didn’t want Obama to do it…so I will refrain from the sin of being uncharitable.
    THANK YOU RBG!!

      I watched this video with sadness. As I am 72 years old and know my physical and mental limitations and what I’ve lost over the years. Although I am in the opposite camp from this lady, I’m sad that she feels she has to cling to being a Supreme when it’s obvious that she should be enjoying her latter years and not becoming a sad reflection of what she once was. If God allows me to live as long as her, I want to spend those last years with no cameras and only my loved ones surrounding me. But this is America, she’s entitled to do what she wants, I just hope that unseen forces are not putting her in these spectacles.

        My sense is that highly partisan secular Democrats’ religion is their politics–so I can see why she’d cling to making herself useful–it’s her form of worship, after all.

        That said, I agree with you completely–my heart goes out to the elderly–which, I suppose, includes me.

          Josco. Right. It is all a matter of power. I recall attending a party (fundraiser) for
          Senator Warren Magnuson, chairman of the powerful Senate Finance Committee. It was apparent that he was barely clinging to life, supported by aides and offering a limp…very limp…handshake. But as long as breath remained he (and the Democrats) held a very powerful position. Politics.

      • I suspect that she has nothing else to live for. This gives her the fame, respect, and deference from everyone that such a lonely person requires. She seems like a very sad person and I feel sorry for her that she holds onto these fleeting values so tightly. Helen, you said it well, well-balanced people want to spend the remainder of their lives with their loved ones, not constantly fighting battles. Kiswa15 made an excellent point that at least she didn’t leave during Obama’s administration. But don’t you wonder WHY she didn’t leave then? I think she honestly expected Hillary to win, so she could retire in a woman’s administration. Now she’s stuck so to speak, or too stubborn. Can they ever be forced to retire if they show signs of senility or falling asleep during hearings?

        You sense she is realizing that what Feinstein did, along with Booker and Harris, has defiled her, and her sacrifice…and now, for what?

        I’m 78 and have noticed some times when I can’t find the right word in my conversation. I do a lot of fiction writing still and don’t want these writing skills to deteriorate. But you know that the aging process is a continuing downhill for your mental skills.

        I can’t imagine that Justice Ginsberg’s opinions aren’t written by her staff at this point in her life. While she is a reliable progressive voice, at least she is a confirmed Justice. Her staff may insert opinions of their own at this stage of her career.

      I agree with kiswa15 on this – and appreciate that she said she didn’t like the way Kavanaugh was being treated in the hearings/

      Very thoughtful. The idea of a dope like sotomayer filling her seat, for purely political reasons, was abhorrent to RBG

    Most interesting aspect of her rapid decline is the performance of the smartest man ever to sit in the oval office. The ghetto freeloader was so busy taking care of wealthy libs in order to line his and the baboons pockets (see netfix deal, the baboons vacations) that he failed to manipulate this left winger into retiring so he could name her replacement. The bonehead also named a morbidly obese woman in very poor health (including diabetes) to SCOTUS.. Ginsburg and Sotomayer will be replaced by a Republican administration. Contrast this with the GOP naming young, healthy Justices.No doubt in my mind, that perceptive dems (both of them) angst over Kavanaugh is magnified by their knowledge of of obamas failures, and what might have been. Had he replaced ginsburg and picked a healthy young judge instead of a chubby “woman with latino life experiences” The switch to a 5-4 Conservative court would be years out in the future, if at all!
    Smartest man, indeed.

      You have to bear in mind, in 2009 Obama was still pretending to be something he was not.
      Sotomayor was female, and also had the advantage of institutionalizing the false concept of a demographic called “Hispanic”, without being seen as a scary radical.
      She was very disarming, with her pleasant smile and her American success story (sort of).
      We already had a Latino on the court, but in the world of identity politics, the Italians do not qualify as Latin.
      Obama evidently thought, even then, that he would have a say in who the next president would be. He would have, had it not been for one man.

        Very true about her appearance and stage act but she forever pissed me off with her “latins” vs “white male” lines. Fukin disgusting and disloyal in the extreme.

    • PONYBOB HASLAM – Your analysis was great about the ages of the nominees and their life spans on the court. It’s an angle I never would have come up with. Off topic: I have to tell you that I LOVE your Western art work which I assume is a closeup detail of a larger work. It is fantastic. I love Western art especially since I live in the “Wild West” SW US. Again, great comment, great picture.

      Still boils my blood thinking about her “latino experiences” schtick. This Asian Pacific law association is equally ridiculous. WTF does Asia and Pacific have to deal with Stars and Stripes? GTFOH!
