Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Will Retire from the US Supreme Court in January, 2019

Speaking privately, a law clerk says the Justice's Cancer has come out of remission


November 29, 2018

While the Nation is preoccupied with the appointment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, it appears there will soon be another vacancy on the US Supreme Court

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has had a re-occurrence of malignant melanoma, she has told her law clerks. Ginsburg was treated in 1999 for colon cancer and had surgery in 2009 for pancreatic cancer.

She has told key Democratic members of the Senate about her medical condition, including ranking Democratic member of the Judiciary Committee Dianne Feinstein. This explains in part the "take no prisoners" attitude of the Democrats during the Kavanaugh nomination, carefully orchestrating weak 37 year old allegations against Kavanaugh by Women he barely remembers knowing in High School and College.

Kavanaugh is a player in this drama. He's in the wrong place at the wrong time . President Donald J Trump will be replacing Notorious RBG, the lovechild of the left, and so will remake the Supreme Court for a generation. The Democrats simply must win back the Senate in November 2018, progressives feel.

Ginsburg, 85 was appointed by President Bill Clinton and took the oath of office on August 10, 1993. She is the second female justice (after Sandra Day O'Connor) of four to be confirmed to the court (along with Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, who are still serving). Following O'Connor's retirement, and until Sotomayor joined the court, Ginsburg was the only female justice on the Supreme Court. During that time, Ginsburg became more forceful with her dissents, which were noted by legal observers and in popular culture. She is generally viewed as belonging to the liberal wing of the court. Ginsburg has authored notable majority opinions, including United States v. Virginia, Olmstead v. L.C., and Friends of the Earth, Inc. v. Laidlaw Environmental Services, Inc.

Ginsburg was born in Brooklyn, New York, to Russian Jewish immigrants. Her older sister died when she was a baby, and her mother, one of her biggest sources of encouragement, died shortly before Ginsburg graduated from high school. She then earned her bachelor's degree at Cornell University, and was a wife and mother before starting law school at Harvard, where she was one of the few women in her class. Ginsburg transferred to Columbia Law School, where she graduated tied for first in her class.

Following law school, Ginsburg turned to academia. She was a professor at Rutgers School of Law and Columbia Law School, teaching civil procedure as one of the few women in her field. Ginsburg spent a considerable part of her legal career as an advocate for the advancement of gender equality and women's rights, winning multiple victories arguing before the Supreme Court. She advocated as a volunteer lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union and was a member of its board of directors and one of its general counsels in the 1970s. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter appointed her to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, where she served until her appointment to the Supreme Court.

We do not need a Republican or Democrat justice appointed. We do not need a Conservative or Liberal justice appointed. We do need a justice that will follow the LAW, and that LAW is the supreme LAW OF THE LAND, the US CONSTITUTION.

Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person. Go, cancer, go! Nominate Amy Coney Barrett! See how many deviant perverse acts she has performed! Libtards suckit! Go to your safe space! Drink some hot cocoa an color with your crayons, bunch a sissified snowflakes, the whole lot! #MAGA #Trump2020

Barbie616 writes:

I'm sorry that her cancer has returned and I wish her well. That being said, Ruth Ginsberg was a good Justice way back when she first started but in her later years she didn't stay neutral. She was supposed to Judge on the merits of the case according to the Constitution; not on her personal beliefs.Maybe it was the worrying about her Cancer and not a personal choice but then she should have stepped down.

RonH writes:

It is sad she has cancer, she should retire. Trump get's to pick another one ! And with a Senate majority, his pick will be confirmed.

Jwest150, you call people Fascists, but don't even know they definition. Educate yourself before trying to demonize our Republic. Yes, REPUBLIC!!! here's a couple of web sites to be able to help you and your education. Https://

lawyer writes:

I wish her a speedy recovery and and an even faster retirement from the court. I met her personally and while her husband seemed to be a very nice person her views are just one sided and extremely biased. You should respect your political opponents and like Justice Scalia who was a close intellectual friend of her you should always see the person behind her. She is wrong on almost every issues all the time and her decisions have done harm to many people but respect her motivation and her conviction. She was the liberal opposite to Scalia, brilliant in her argumentation, smart but simply wrong. She should resign today as age has taken its toll and her comments about the president and her leaving to New Zealand disqualify her from the office. Still a great disservice to our nation -however she is entitled to her views. Her persistence to stay on during the Obama years has now the consequence that she will be replaced by a conservative judge. Once gain she was wrong but respect her !

Crooksrus writes:

I don’t wish her ill, but I do think her clearly ill advised comments which demonstrate her bias against the current President make it clear she is past her prime.

luvliblies writes:

Darth Vader Ginsberg stated she decides cases according to law in other nations.You could fishingfind anything that way. Clear violation of oath. Can her.

Oka writes:

Her retirement would be awesome; PLEASE tell me this is true!!!!

DARisse writes:

This explains the Left's paniced attempts to steal Senate elections with fradulent vote scams going on now ....

DARisse writes:

I'm sure the President will choose another drunk, gang raping, child molesting, junkie, thieving, adulterer who desecrates churched & temples, and defiles nuns, with a 40 year history of 'ner'do-wellism...... according to Leftists....

TonyCastle writes:

I wish her cancer well, and hopefully it makes a complete recovery. My thoughts and prayers go out to RBG's cancer. The only good juice is oven baked juice.

themountainman writes:

I wish the best for Justice Ginsburg. Thank you for your service on the court.

James writes:

RBG is an awful person who has repeatedly expressed her hate and discontent for our Constitution. Typical hypocrisy from the left swear to uphold something that she doesn't even believe in and publically condemns. It is becoming more and apparent that not only is the left wing fake news an enemy if the people but the entire Democrat party and anyone supports them supports their anti Constitutional agenda by proxy. There is nothing wrong with disagreeing and having a different point of view but when you lie on national TV, break the law and, use your power to try to manipulate and attack the Constitution you become treading ever so close to being a domestic enemy. People on the left have been burning people's personal property, their vehicles and attacking Gop members and supporters. That's why I'm no longer a Democrat!

Jwest150 writes:

Wow, what a bunch of hateful aweful people on this site. Do you people go to church and talk this way? Rewind to the 1930s and y'all would be singing the praises of Nazis. This women has done more to protect the rights of it hers than all of you put together if you lived 10 lifetimes. I may not agree with the fascists that are running our country but I don't wish them harm, I wish they gain some humanity. Democrats had 7 percent more popular vote this election and represent 40million more people than Republicans, yet we are still being ruled by a Republican minority through gerrymandering an misallocation. by the way I haven't heard one peep about the invading smallpox leprosy caravan coming to get us since the election ended. Nothing but a bunch of fear mongering lies for political gain, just like fascist do.

RedAussie writes:

Lawyers are already prepped, victims are being recruited, letters are being composed stating objection to the next pick. When that name is revealed, it’ll be added to the blank spots. It won’t matter who; the Kavanaugh debacle was merely a dress rehearsal. Count on it.

burnttornado writes:

RBG knows the SC is already stacked to the right. Her opinion no lo ger counts to hold the court to the left, I predict shes out Ps. She cant hold up her head due to severe osteoporosis- plus cancer means her bones crumble. You dont break ribs falling down unless your bones are very brittle. GOOD RIDDANCE GINSBURG!

ALS82 writes:

@Mswn27 Right! I can't find this anywhere else. I don't believe this has been fact checked.. I'm waiting.

okidoki writes:

It's time to hang up your robe, but i don't think she will, this one will have to be carried out on a stretcher, this woman's neck is no longer strong enough to hold her head up. If you think the Kavanaugh hearings was a circus, wait till the next appointee...I can't wait for the show to begin

DRSanto writes:

Please, please, please... Consider Judge Janice Brown! She's amazing and exactly what the divided Country needs at this time. Yes, I know she used to be a liberal (if you aren't a liberal when you're young, you don't have a heart, if you aren't a Conservative when you're older, you don't have a brain), but SHE HAS BEEN A SOLID, SOLID Conservative/Libertarian for decades! She's brilliant! And yes, I know she's also 70'ish years old... That's a problem, but there isn't a single person on earth promised even one more day. She could be a Conservative / Constitutional / Moral influence on this Country for many, many years to come... DRS

Wlb008 writes:

About 30 years too late. EVERY DECISION that piece of you know what made was AGAINST humanity except the vote on Gay Marriage...but that one she announced HOW she was going to vote TWO WEEKS BEFORE OPENING ARGUMENTS!

Soc12 writes:

Doctor report indicated she will be needing to retire in days due to her health... its not the fall, its what led to the fall... seizure? She can't even hold her head up, come on already...

Robertsgt40 writes:

I'm gonna party like the day songbird McCain croaked when she bites it.

Francis888 writes:

This evil witch has done her best to destroy our country over the years she’s been taking up space at SCOTUS. This old bag of bones supports pedophilia. She want age of consent lowered to 12. She’s an ACLU darling.... This old Communist just needs to DROP DEAD already. Please die you evil whore!

Jps writes:

She will not go any where unless she dies. She would not want to help trump make the u.s. Great again.

Mswn27 writes:

This article sounds like it was written months ago and just now posted. Why is no one else reporting this?

Oldvlc writes:

At 85 she is the same age as Feinstein. Since DiFi just got re-elected I won’t say she should join RBG. But 91 might be a tad elderly to hang it up, which is the age she will be when her term is up.

soozie writes:

Judge AMY CONEY BARRETT, 46, will be nominated. She is the newest justice on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, confirmed by the Senate, 55-43, in October 2017. Dem. Sens. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Tim Kaine of Virginia, approved her.

arjaysmithjr writes:

Ginsburg in't going ANYWHERE until Satan says she is. She has a job to do, and she does it well.

Libsaremomos writes:

It may have been published a day early but it is not January yet.

MAGA2018 writes:

I'm calling B S on this... article is way too sketchy on details. Also, a leak of this size would have been picked up by serious news outlets by now. But I sure wish the old bat would retire soon!

Cavinaar writes:

Since when did spelling or grammar change facts? Facts are facts regardless of spelling or grammatical errors. That being said, if someone is writing a piece for publication, they really should make sure the spelling and grammar are correct if for no other reason than to shut up the grammar police.

NotYourDaddy writes:

November came, the Republicans kept the Senate, and President Trump will be replacing two more liberal Justices. Sotomayor is having health problems, too, after all. The Democrats didn’t count on losing Senate seats and, if they behave like children in Congress, they’ll lose it again in 2020, when President Trump gets re-elected.

Lyle writes:

Grammarking speaks truth. definitely needs to get an educated native English speaker on staff if they hope to be taken seriously. And they need to lock-down date every article. That said, hope this piece is truer in fact than it is in this particular telling.

AngelFromAbove writes:

Can't be soon enough... She will parish with the evil in her heart and be at the feet of the fire for eternity.

Cathy writes:

Busted! The date of your article is November 9; today is the 8th. Back to the future?

RLC writes:

Who is your source? Is this an exclusive via RBJ

Amhealy writes:

And the article is dated November 9th. Today is the 8th.

GrammarKing writes:

Hire a copywriter. There are so many grammatical and spelling errors that simply nullify your story. Hell, use Grammarly for goodness sake.
