Posted on 01/18/2019 4:29:32 PM PST by Jim Noble
There is no legitimate source of information available to the public (and I don't have any inside information) about the current health status, actual prognosis, or future plans of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
While all the inferences posters keep making about what is PROBABLE are well-founded, the truth is, no one knows anything except that she has cancer, she was surgically treated in the third week of December 2018, and that her return to work is taking longer than was originally hoped for by her supporters and friends in the media.
That's all anyone who is a legitimate source of information knows. The "pneumonia" story appeared to originate in September 2018, and the abnormal Xray was almost certainly caused by the cancer.
She was treated by the best team in the US (although there's a lot of competition) and although the story may end soon, if any team could have given her a chance for multi-year survival without cognitive injury, she had that team.
When she is ready to resign, or when she dies, I'm sure there will be an announcement. Until then, all the stuff here is hot gas.

She’s short, old, and liberal.
There you go!
If she votes on any cases, I want to see proof that she is lucid.
The Shadow knows.
I keep seeing these stories then learn there is nothing backing them up.
The Media are not camped outside of her residence seeking sightings?
Why is Trump making his announcement TOMORROW..?
For max effect he should do it Monday morning.
All the idiots are drunk all weekend. Or ballgame, etc...
If Buzzy dies he should postpone.
She’s dead, Jim.
Bill Mitchell tweeted a news scoop from Santa Monica newspaper that Ruth had Pneumonia. Very dangerous for someone her age/condition. No follow up on that. Who knows??
The rumors are coming from somewhere, for some reason. Probably a bit premature, but only a bit.
She has one foot in the grave and one on a banana peel.
Is this the tweet from yesterday ? ...or Wednesday ?
Pelosi is out of the country isn’t she. She charted a commercial jet.
Over 1/3 of the US(110 million people) in the country are inside Sat. because of the storm hitting the US east of the Mississippi River. Timing works out well.
...or that she wrote her own opinions.
The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behavior...
Wouldn't this imply that the People deserve evidence of ANY behavior at all?
What kind of behavior is covering up a terminal or incapacitating illness just to hold onto a seat for as long as possible?
