Ruth Bader Ginsburg Misses 1st Oral Argument Since Joining The Supreme Court While Recuperating From Surgery

For the first time since 1993 when she joined the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is missing oral arguments on Monday while she recuperates from a recent cancer surgery.

A Supreme Court spokesperson said that Ginsburg is recuperating from a lung surgery she underwent in New York City last month to remove cancerous growths, and that the Justice will participate in the consideration of cases through written briefs and transcripts, even though a date has not yet been set for when she will return to the bench.

Last month, Ginsburg, 85, underwent a pulmonary lobectomy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center after it was discovered she had two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung.  The discovery was made while undergoing tests for several fractured ribs she acquired after a fall back in November.

Ginsburg has had to deal with a number of health concerns in recent years.  She broke two ribs in 2012, fought two bouts of cancer, once in 1999 and another time in 2009.  She had a stent implanted in her heart to open a blocked artery in 2004, and now this.

From Fox News:

The Harvard Law School-educated justice was nominated to the Supreme Court by former President Bill Clinton in 1993 to replace retiring Justice Byron R. White. Ginsburg was Clinton’s first Supreme Court pick.

Prior to ascending to the Supreme Court, Ginsburg became the first woman to receive tenure at Columbia University Law School and is also the co-founder of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Women’s Rights Project.

Ginsburg is currently the oldest member on the Supreme Court.  Her retirement has been a topic of discussion for some time now.  Some believe she’s hanging in there just so that Trump doesn’t get to replace her, and it is said that she has hired clerks for a term that goes into 2020.  In short, she has no plans on going away.

Ginsburg is also known for saying in 2012, “I would not look to the U.S. Constitution,” when asked on an Egyptian TV show for a model to be used by Egypt’s new government.  Yes, you read that right.  A U.S. Supreme Court Justice said that about the standard of law that she took an oath to support and defend.

Trump: ‘If I Had One Do-Over, It Would Be…’

In an interview that aired on Sunday, President Donald Trump admitted that his biggest regret was appointing Jeff Sessions as his attorney general, and said that if he had a do-over, the nomination would have gone to someone else.

In an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Trump made the comments about his former attorney general who resigned right after the midterms back in November after a plethora of criticism from the president via social media.  It was at the height of the Mueller investigation, and Trump was openly critical of Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the probe in early 2017.

In the past, Trump said, “I don’t have an attorney general. It is very sad.”  The president’s disillusion in Sessions wasn’t just about the Russia collusion witch hunt.  He said he wasn’t happy with “the border” and “numerous” other issues that Sessions’ office affected.

“Every President deserves an Attorney General they have confidence in,” Trump tweeted. “I believe every President has a right to their Cabinet, these are not lifetime appointments. You serve at the pleasure of the President.”

Sessions recused himself the day after he was confirmed and sworn in as attorney general, but he never confided to the president that he was going to do so.  The only reason he recused himself was because during his confirmation hearing the Democrats made such a stink about Sessions being a surrogate to the Trump campaign during the 2016 election that they felt he couldn’t be neutral overseeing the FBI investigation into Russian collusion.  Remember, this was before the Mueller witch hunt began.

As time went on, America discovered that the whole Trump-Russia collusion probe was a hoax that served two purposes; a tool for Democrats to use to impeach Trump, and to cover up the Obama administration’s interference in the 2016 election by spying on the Trump campaign and by exonerating Hillary Clinton of the many crimes she committed while serving as Obama’s secretary of state, so that she could go on to win the election.

MN Star-Tribune FINALLY Reports on Ilhan Omar Being Married to Two Men at Once

This story has been out there for a year, but now The Minnesota Star-Tribune is finally reporting on the fact that Ilhan Omar could have been married to two men at once, and that one of the men might have been her own brother. I guess there was only so long they could sit on the story, since it didn’t go away, but in fact became more noticeable since she filed a joint return with a man she may not have been married to in 2014 and 2015. At that time she was still married to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, her alleged brother.

From The Gateway Pundit

On Saturday, after several months of this story being reported online, the Minnesota Star-Tribune finally reported that Ilhan Omar was married to two men at once and “possible her own brother.”

New investigative documents released by a state agency have given fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.

Omar has denied the allegations in the past, dismissing them as “baseless rumors” first raised in an online Somali politics forum and championed by conservative bloggers during her 2016 campaign for the Minnesota House. But she said little then or since about Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, the former husband who swept into her life in 2009 before a 2011 separation.

The questions surfaced again this month in a state probe of campaign finance violations showing that Omar filed federal taxes in 2014 and 2015 with her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, while she was still legally married to but separated from Elmi.

Supreme Court To Hand Down Ruling On The Citizenship Question On The Census

The U.S. Supreme Court is close to handing down its ruling on whether the Trump administration can include a citizenship question on the 2020 census.  The question of citizenship has been on the census in the past, but the same question today is a political powder keg because of how leftists view illegal aliens living here as “Unregistered Democrats.”  Many are against it because Donald Trump is the one proposing it.  Trump Derangement Syndrome is very strong among those who go against a president’s Constitutional authority simply because it’s Donald Trump.

There have been many legal challenges since the question was announced in early 2018.

People against the citizenship question have cited studies (there’s always a study) that say the question may lead to an inaccurate population count.  I think they really fear the exact opposite.  Leftists have been telling us since the 1980’s that there are 11 million illegal aliens living in the country.  If we know that hundreds of thousands enter the country illegaly every year, with an outlook of one million coming in this year alone, it stands to reason that the number of illegals living in the country is much higher, and leftists don’t want the real number to be exposed.

Another reason leftists don’t want the question added to the census is because the population count is the data that the federal government uses to determine congressional districts, and the number of people living in certain areas determines how much federal funding states get.  This one is particularly despicable.  Leftists want to count lawbreakers who are here illegally as citizens in order to bump up the amount of federal funding for states, creating an artificial need for higher dollar amounts for grants and funding for programs, etc. which is supposed to go toward American citizens.  Illegals should get no federal funding whatsoever, but that money, and the potential for future Democrat Party registrations, is where we are in this debate.

I don’t think anyone can name any other country that you can enter illegally, take social benefits at the cost of its citizens, not register for the draft, get a driver’s license, and then get counted in a government census as a citizen.  The very fact that groups of people are arguing against the citizenship question is a dire warning that something has gone very wrong with a segment of our society.  Can someone please let Satan know that there’s a hole in his fence?

The administration has been adamant in its insistence that including the question is necessary to enforce the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Leftists, who will go to any length to win any cause, are now spitting and jumping up and down over a potential political motivation behind adding the citizenship question.  Of course it’s bullschtein, but when has using bullschtein ever stopped Democrats in the past?  It’s practically in their platform.

From The Hill:

Critics say that records found on the hard drive of late GOP strategist Thomas Hofeller, who earned a reputation for helping Republicans in the redrawing of several key district maps in recent years, show he was involved in the creation of the citizenship question.

Emails between Hofeller, who died last year, and Mark Neuman, a top census adviser to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, have been filed in New York federal court as evidence that the question is designed to benefit Republicans.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has filed the court documents, has pointed to a 2015 study conducted by Hofeller that found a citizenship question would help Republicans in redistricting while harming Hispanic communities.

In Maryland, another lawsuit on the census question revealed court documents showing Hofeller and Census Bureau staffer Christa Jones corresponded in 2015 about the question.  It’s interesting how now many leftists are throwing Barack Obama under the bus to get what they want, as if discarding an old tool that ran out of its usefulness.

Judge George Hazel, an Obama appointee (of course) who is overseeing the Maryland case, has opined that he will reconsider the question of discriminatory intent behind the citizenship question being proposed in light of the “new evidence.”

Oh Puhleeeeease!  The bottom line here is that nobody has said that illegal aliens won’t be counted.  They just won’t be counted as citizens — and there is no legal reason they should be.  They will be counted as illegal aliens, or “non-citizens”, “Future Democrats” or whatever less offensive term leftists accept.
