Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will not be at The State of the Union Speech in 2019

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, notorious RBG, will not be at President Trump's State of the Union speech on Tuesday, February 5th, 2019.

I base my prediction on game theory and recent events.

The Progressive Left and RBG have too much to lose by showing up, and too little to gain. RBG is old and frail, and probably in ill health. She has not been seen in public for seven weeks. A singular reported sighting, in a darkened theater, where no pictures were allowed, occurred yesterday, on February 4th.

Her last public appearance was on 15 December. She underwent major surgery on 21 December, 2018.

Her son, James Ginsburg, says she is walking a mile a day and meeting with her personal trainer two times a week.

Supreme Court Justices are understandably careful about their privacy. But Justice Ginsburg has canceled two scheduled public appearances and missed oral arguments for the the first time in her career in January and February of this year.

If Justice Ginsburg is in ill health, she will not wish to subject herself to the strain of the State of the Union address. She will not wish to nod off during the speech. That faux pas occurred in 2015, during President Obama's State of the Union speech. She blamed it on imbibing too much alcohol at the dinner before the event.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's health is avidly watched by Second Amendment supporters and Constitutionalists, because her politics and judicial decisions have been uniformly against protecting Second Amendment rights, and against enforcing the Constitution as written.

If President Trump has to appoint a replacement for Justice Ginsburg, the Supreme Court may have a majority of originalists and textualists for the first time in 70 years.

For the first time in 70 years, the Supreme Court may leave the Progressive ideology of treating the Constitution as a "living document" malleable and fluid, to be altered at will by Justices as they see fit for the moment.

RGB skipped President Trump's State of the Union speech in 2017, and again in 2018.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg has publicly proclaimed how much she detests President Trump.  RBG's birthday is on 15 March. She was born in 1933.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg will not attend the State of the Union speech by President Trump.

Don't be disappointed or make too much of the event, when she does not show up.
