(ThePatriotSource.com)- The issue of Ruther Bader Ginsburg remaining on the Supreme Court is a difficult one. On the one hand, Ginsburg is respectful and representative of how the Democrats used to be. She was a friend of staunch conservative Supreme Court Judge Antonin Scalia. She is also a feminist icon and legend and is widely understood to be hanging on to her position to avoid President Trump being able to replace her with another new conservative judge.
Ginsburg is 87 years old and visibly very frail, and has spent years in and out of the hospital. New reports suggest that Ginsberg has waited four months before revealing that she was undergoing chemotherapy treatment after learning that her cancer had returned.
Ginsburg was once again hospitalized last week and underwent surgery to “revise a bile duct stent” in the famous Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Her first stent lasted less than a year, and was originally fitted when Ginsburg underwent treatment for pancreatic cancer.
The Supreme Court published a statement explaining how Ginsburg “was admitted to The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland early this morning for treatment of a possible infection.”
Ginsburg began receiving chemotherapy for cancer back in May, and after various other treatments – including treatment for lesions on her liver – she claims to be “fully able” to “do the job full steam.”
Ginsburg was historically been fairly open about her medical problems but after waiting four months to admit that she is undergoing fresh treatment for her returning cancer, people are now questioning whether she really is in good health.
Mark Meadows, the White House Chief of Staff, was asked about President Trump’s plans in the event that a vacancy appears on the Supreme Court. Meadows responded saying that he doesn’t imagine the president avoiding making a quick appointment on the Supreme Court if necessary, and would expect the Senate to “take quick action.”
Meadows also wished Ginsburg the best.
Ginsburg, and the Democrats, may be hopeful that former Vice President Joe Biden will (somehow) win the election in November. At which point, many expect she would retire and allow the Democrats to appoint somebody younger who will allow the Supreme Court to make leftist-friendly decisions for decades to come.
