Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has no remaining cancer, Supreme Court announces

Test coming for Ginsburg's promise to leave if she's not at 'full steam'

President Trump Is Already Anticipating the Retirement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The White House reportedly began quiet preparations for a possible replacement for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg after she missed oral arguments this week.

"Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required", said court spokesperson Kathleen Arberg.

Ginsburg, who joined the court in 1993, underwent a surgical procedure called a pulmonary lobectomy on December 21 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NY to remove two cancerous nodules in her left lung.

Fox News is reporting on Ginsburg's past comments about what would signal her retirement. She previously was a Michigan Supreme Court justice and a University of Michigan law professor. Ginsburg is recovering at home after surgery to remove cancer. She has been reading legal briefs and participating in cases by relaying her votes to the other justices... The nodules themselves were discovered incidentally following tests after a fall she sustained in November. Ginsburg is a left-wing jurist who has notoriously ruled for abortion and against employers' conscience rights, as well as for same-sex "marriage" despite calls to recuse herself on the issue because she's personally officiated several such "weddings". "She already had the rib fractures to deal with when she went into it". Senate Republicans had to change rules in order to eliminate the filibuster, allowing Supreme Court justices to be confirmed with a simple majority of Senate support. She did not miss any arguments during previous bouts with colon and pancreatic cancer. "She's barely two weeks out", Dr. Raja Flores, chief of the division of thoracic surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in NY, told CNBC.

GM workers stage another sit-in at Oshawa plant
Since GM's announcement, Unifor has launched an extensive public relations campaign, demanding GM save the Oshawa plant. Unifor's lobbying efforts include a TV commercial condemning GM's decision to end production at the Oshawa plant.

The growths were found during tests Ginsburg had after she fractured ribs in a fall on November 7.

According to a White House source who talked to Politico, the Trump administration "is taking the temperature on possible short-list candidates, reaching out to key stakeholders, and just making sure that people are informed on the process".

Heavy attention is given to Ginsburg's health amid liberal worries that, if she dies or has to retire for health reasons, Trump would get another pick and lock the high court into a conservative ideology for a generation to come.

The source described the conversations as very preliminary so the White House is not "unprepared" for a grueling hearing.
