The first media source to correctly report in September that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had been diagnosed with cancer is now reporting she has contracted pneumonia and is fighting for her life. The Santa Monica Observer also indicates Justice Ginsburg plans to step down from the Court very soon.
Via The Gateway Pundit:
In September The Santa Monica Observor reported that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had developed cancer.
Snopes labeled the report as fake news.
Snopes was wrong.
The Santa Monica Observer was the only paper to report of lung cancer at the time.
Now The Santa Monica Observer says Ruth Bader Ginsburg has pneumonia and is fighting for her life.
And… That Ginsburg will retire in January.
“As any reader of the Santa Monica Observer knew last September, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed lung cancer. The 85 year old Supreme Court Justice had surgery as quietly as possible on December 22, 2018.
Following surgery, she has developed complications including pneumonia.”
It does appear increasingly likely, given the current media blackout regarding her condition, that Justice Ginsburg’s health is far more precarious than most in the Mainstream Media would like us to believe. Just how serious her condition is will likely be more widely reported soon.
Via comments from Dr. Sebastian Gorka last night, (as well as repeated whispers from the Supreme Court press pool) rumors are swirling that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was relocated to New York City and preparing to vacate her position due to illness. While some claim she continues to receive treatment and/or recover from her recent cancer diagnosis, others suggest she is in fact receiving hospice care in New York City and hasn’t been in Washington D.C. for several days. The truth perhaps can be found somewhere in the middle of both those extremes but what is undeniable is that should Ginsburg step down the battle to fill that vacancy on the Court will likely be as contentious and hard-fought as anything we’ve yet seen.
UPDATE: Some media push back against reports like those from Dr. Gorka indicate Justice Ginsburg is “recovering” from her cancer treatment and plans to rejoin the Court somet time next month. Again, the truth likely is to be found somewhere in the middle of both extremes.
A teacher on the brink. A father seeking justice.
Their paths are about to cross and their lives will never be the same…
“MR. DIAZ’S REVENGE cuts to the core of what is so wrong with so much in America. From schools that no longer teach within a society that has seemingly lost its ability to listen, it’s a fictional story that in many ways is more real than what is portrayed on the news and that also has something very important to say to those still paying attention. The characters are believable, the action and dialogue riveting, with a message that should appeal to all of us. Read it. Read it now.”

The longer her absence plays out the more whispers are intensifying as to the true state of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health following surgery for lung cancer last month.
Via The Hill:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was absent from the bench for a third straight day on Wednesday.
Chief Justice John Roberts said Ginsburg was unable to be present for arguments but would participate in deciding Wednesday’s case via briefs and transcripts of oral arguments.
Her absence Monday marked the first time in more than 25 years on the court that she missed an oral argument due to her health.
The Supreme Court’s Press Office said last month that Ginsburg’s cancer was discovered in an X-ray after she fractured three ribs on her left side in a Nov. 7 fall. Both nodules removed during surgery were found to be malignant on initial pathology evaluation, but post-surgery there was no evidence of any remaining disease.
Ginsburg has survived two previous bouts of cancer — colon cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009 — and did not miss a day in court during those periods.
