SCOTUS: Ruth Bader Ginsberg Just Had Another Cancer Scare… Here’s The Latest

Because of the enormous political implications on whether RBG remains seated or not, her health is a matter of endless speculation. After her latest bout of treatment, here’s what we can tell you.

It looks like she’s doing pretty well, all things considered.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has undergone radiation treatment for a malignant tumor that was discovered on her pancreas – and there is “no evidence of the disease elsewhere in her body,” the Supreme Court said.

The 86-year-old on Friday completed a three-week course of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy at Manhattan’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, according to the Supreme Court.

“The Justice tolerated treatment well,” said the Supreme Court, which added that Ginsburg has canceled her annual summer visit to Santa Fe, “but has otherwise maintained an active schedule.”

The treatment started on Aug. 5 and was administered on an outpatient basis to treat the tumor.

We wish her all the best in her recovery, and while we would not object in the lest if she decided to retire, we wish her no ill on a personal level.

And that brings us to another news story for the day.

One of the Koch brothers — David Koch — has passed away. The billionaire philanthropist and political activist was one of the favorite boogeymen of the Left.

Right on cue, the social media Left-o-sphere erupted in a twisted combination of joy and venom, hoping he suffered badly, hoping he burned in hell, etcetera.

Even if it was rational to hold such hatred for a political enemy whose life you can literally name NO specific points of harm that you endured specifically because of his political involvement, they forget that he was HARDLY a lockstep Republican. In fact, there were SEVERAL issues on which the Koch brothers and their beloved Soros were on the same page.

When that day does come for Justice Ginsberg — as it inevitably comes for us all — let us hope we can set a better example of respecting the humanity that Americans share, however much we might differ on POLICY.

We wish you long life and good health, Ms. Ginsberg. But if your friends and family suggest you consider kicking off a well-earned retirement, we would certainly encourage you to heed their advice.
