According to non-official news outlets, there is no video and there are no images, but the Associated Press is reporting that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is alive, and attended an event on Monday evening.
The 85-year-old Ginsburg is attending a concert at a museum a few blocks from the White House that is being given by her daughter-in-law and other musicians. Patrice Michaels is married to Ginsburg’s son, James. Michaels is a soprano and composer.
The concert is dedicated to Ginsburg’s life in the law.
Yeah, no comment from polite conservatives on Ginsburg life in the law.
The official reason for there being no photo evidence of a concert is that the National Constitution Center, sponsor of the concert, does not permit photography.
That is plausible as many performance venues do not permit photography or recording, but still, no photos outside the venue, or of Ginsburg entering or exiting the building? That does not add to the believability of the story. The woman missed an entire month at the Supreme Court, has not heard an oral argument, has been otherwise missing in action, and we’re supposed to believe that she was well enough to attend a concert performed in her honor.
And that’s not all. Ginsburg’s son claims, again without visual proof, that his mother is doing well after invasive lung surgery to remove two cancerous pulmonary nodules.
James Ginsburg said before the concert that his mother is walking a mile a day and meeting with her personal trainer twice a week.
The performance concluded with a song set to Ginsburg’s answers to questions.
In introducing the last song, Michaels said, “bring our show to a close, but not the epic and notorious story of RBG.”
When Justice Ginsburg appears at either the State of the Union Address on Tuesday, some event where recording is allowed or on the bench at the Supreme Court, the rumors about her life and health will subside, and not until.
In the meantime, it’s a sit back and wait for a situation when it comes to her seat on the Supreme Court.
