“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg admitted Thursday night to not being ‘100 percent sober’ when she dozed off at last month’s [2015] State of the Union address.”

Now that it’s been the obligatory 24 hours of praise and respect for the passed, we can get down to business. Ginsberg, the Liberal Lioness, was not only an outspoken anti-Trumper whilst sitting on the court (quite the legal no-no, doncha know) but also a bit of a drunk. And her dying partisan words [see previous post] carry no legal weight whatsoever.

The war is on

“An envelope posted to [President Trump at] the White House containing the lethal [poison] ricin was intercepted by US authorities on Saturday.” A woman is a suspect.

Her dying wish

“The granddaughter of Ruth Bader Ginsberg says Justice Ginsberg’s ‘most fervent wish’ was to not have a replacement chosen by Pres. Donald Trump.”

Headline at KXAN News.

Good luck with that.

UPDATE:  When the political shoe was on the other foot, however, she was gung-ho to get ‘er done:

“When a similar scenario occurred four years ago, following the death of Antonin Scalia, the Republican-controlled Senate blocked Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. It was a controversial move, and Ginsburg had something to say about it:  Ginsburg publicly called on the Senate to go through with the nomination.

That’s their job,” she said in July 2016. “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the President stops being President in his last year.”

Distance healing

Barbara Ellen is feeling better after yesterday’s hour-plus session with telephone distance healer Shawna Ristic. Californian Shawna scored big right out of the gate in assessing BE’s energy as deflecting somehow, as in look-over-here, look-over-there. Which BE confirmed is due to her introverted preference of being invisible.

The pain in her lower back is still gone a day later and the pain in her hip has returned but quite a bit less than before the session. Give Shawna a try!

UPDATE: Six days later, the pain is gone, except after lying on one side asleep, but it disappears quickly upon arising. We expected the chiropractic experience, of a few days relief, not a miracle.

Blacks at D-Day

You never hear about blacks in WW2, other than the Tuskegee Airmen, since all of them were in segregated units. But one canard, that blacks did not land on Omaha Beach, is exploded by the Army, itself. In this cool story about barrage balloons to thwart strafing fighter planes manned by an all-black battalion.
