Why Supreme Court Justices on chemotherapy should be removed from the bench (and other news)

NaturalNews Insider Alert ( email newsletter

Dear NaturalNews readers,


Do you think it's okay for a school bus driver to drive kids to school when he's drunk? How about an airline pilot who smokes crack before he shows up for work to pilot a jumbo jet?


Most people agree that the mental state of professionals whose decisions affect others should be free from chemical impairment. It only makes sense, right?


So how about a U.S. Supreme Court Justice who undergoes chemotherapy and suffers significant cognitive impairment from the "chemo brain" side effects of that chemotherapy? Should that Justice be removed from a position of power over others?


In today's feature article, I argue that Justice Ginsburg's upcoming chemotherapy treatments should disqualify her from serving on the U.S. Supreme Court. Chemotherapy causes significant, measurable cognitive impairment because it destroys brain cells. Read the full story here:


Shockingly, since publishing this story a few hours ago, I've already received complaints from a few liberal-leaning readers who believe that brain-damaged U.S. Supreme Court Justices are just fine! Want to smoke some crack? Shoot up some heroin? Drink a few rounds of vodka? No problem! You can serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, these people insist. Because to some, the political leanings of Supreme Court Justices matters more than whether or not their brains actually work!


Some people have apparently misinterpreted this story as an attack on Ginsburg. It's nothing of the kind. I would make the same recommendation if Justice Samuel Anthony Alito showed up for work smoking a bong with Michael Phelps!


Shouldn't our nation's top decision makers be free from chemical impairment of their brains?

Did you see my video yet about Jugo de Cana (cane juice) in Ecuador? It's an eye-opener, for sure. Some people are appalled at the fact that small children are working near heavy machinery. Silly gringos! The way people live in the USA isn't the way people live everywhere else in the world, you know. Watch it yourself and you be the judge (but don't smoke crack beforehand):
