minimally invasive non-surgical procedure

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure on a bile duct stent she received last year, the Supreme Court said Wednesday. Ginsburg, who was admitted at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, is expected to be released from the hospital by the end of the week. Per the court, Ginsburg's doctors say stent revisions are common, and done to minimize the risk of infection in the future. Ginsburg — who, at 87, is the oldest member on the court — disclosed earlier this month that she is undergoing chemotherapy for a reoccurrence of pancreatic cancer.

Comments:

They certainly are tying to downplay her illness. I've lost track of how many trips to the hospital it's been this year.

From the HHS Public Access website (this was a real eye opener): Biliary stenting is a frequently performed palliative procedure for relieving obstructive jaundice in advanced cancer. Biliary obstruction may be associated with pruritus, jaundice, nausea, and anorexia. Stent procedures involving internal (endoscopic) or external (percutaneous) drainage are used to reduce elevated bilirubin levels to reduce symptoms, as well as to enable future chemotherapy. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4696003/ I don't wish her ill, but I think Coach DJT needs to start warming up the bull pen.

This witch is desperately trying to stay alive just in case Biden wins and can replace her with another lunatic who encourages baby murder and thinks international law trumps the US Constitution. I would not want to be standing next to her on Judgment Day.

Given how bizarre 2020 has been, I gotta believe we WILL have a SCOTUS hearing for RBG's replacement, and this time the dims aren't going to go soft on the nominee like they did for Kavanaugh. You thought the riots in Portland/Seattle/Minneapolis were bad, wait until you see the dim senators acting out at this hearing in the senate chambers.

Berlin protest over virus

Berlin - A Berlin protest against coronavirus restrictions drew thousands, from the hard left and right to conspiracy theorists on Saturday. Police put turnout at 15,000 -- well below the 500,000 organisers had announced as they urged a "day of freedom" from months of virus curbs. (Snip) A handful of people held a counter demonstration. Dubbing themselves "grandmothers against the extreme right", they shouted insults against "Nazi" protesters. The "Day of Freedom" slogan for the protest echoes the title of a 1935 documentary by Nazi-era film producer Leni Riefenstahl on a party conference by Hitler's National Socialist German Workers' Party. Several politicians

Defenders of California Sen. Kamala Harris are rallying to her support over concerns that she is being viewed skeptically by the advisors vetting possible running mates for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. (Snip) Harris’ allies mobilized this week after Politico reported that the co-chair of Biden’s vetting committee, former Sen. Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut, was still concerned about Harris’ tough debate performance against Biden in June 2019 and that she hasn’t expressed regret. Several California elected officials and labor leaders initiated a call with the vetting team to emphasize that Harris has strong support among labor and political

More than two months after George Floyd's death sparked nationwide protests, unexpected consequences have arisen at some leading universities: Students are leaving their fraternities and sororities over what they perceive as a lack of sensitivity on issues of race, sexism, classism, homophobia and other issues of discrimination or inequality. Since June, about 200 sorority and fraternity members at Vanderbilt University, in Nashville, Tennessee, have left their organizations, said Daniel Wrocherinsky, a rising junior at the school who recently quit the fraternity Delta Kappa Epsilon.

Coronavirus cases in New Jersey, which just a week ago had plunged to their lowest levels since the pandemic began, are rising again, fueled in part by outbreaks among young adults along the Jersey Shore. In the past seven days, New Jersey has recorded an average of 416 cases per day, an increase of 28 percent from the average two weeks earlier, according to a database maintained by The New York Times.

Tammy Duckworth as his running mate, arguing that she would highlight President Trump’s successful attempts to avoid being drafted during the Vietnam War. Trump “ran away from service at a time when the country needed him,” Pritzker, a Democrat, said during a wide-ranging interview with Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast. Biden has said he will announce his selection next week, and Duckworth, an Illinois Democrat, is among a handful of women he is said to be most seriously considering for the job. Duckworth is a

Well, it may be time to deploy the military to Seattle after all because what local lawmakers are doing is nothing short of allowing the city to be engulfed in violence and anarchy. They’re moving to abolish the police. It’s not defunding. It’s a total dissolution. Non-profit programs and “community-led activities” will replace policing. Why? Well, according to the resolution, the Seattle Police Department perpetuates racism and violence. Oh, yes, and it’s a vehicle of white supremacy. It's typical 'woke' nonsense, and it's a cancer that's killing America.

Admiration for George W. Bush doesn’t win you much praise in today’s Republican Party, but I don’t care. On Thursday former President George W. Bush attended and delivered a speech at the late Congressman John Lewis’s funeral. George W. Bush had every reason not to attend Lewis’s funeral, let alone eulogize him. Lewis may have been a famed civil rights leader, but he was also a bitter partisan Democrat congressman, who boycotted both of Bush’s inaugurations. Bush barely mentioned the political division between him and Lewis. “John and I had our disagreements of course,” Bush said.

“And I say … segregation today … segregation tomorrow … segregation forever.” Fifty-seven years ago, the newly sworn-in Democrat governor of Alabama, George Wallace, delivered those words in his inaugural address. In other words: George Wallace, who was a product of a political party that built its political power by supporting every imaginable policy that divided Americans by race, was at it again. Using the momentary pulpit that was a governor’s inaugural to play the race card — again. Yesterday there was a new George Wallace. He appeared in an Atlanta church to eulogize the late Democratic Congressman John Lewis, Lewis a certifiable hero of the 1960s civil rights movement.

That painting was classic Bob Ross: a snowy landscape bursting with color, a world of glimmering trees and vibrant shrubs around a slick, icy pond. Gazing at it evoked that feeling you get sitting by a fire on a crisp, cold night. No way I could make anything like that. I was in a room on the side of a big-box craft store
