President Trump Is Already Anticipating the Retirement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

President Trump Is Already Anticipating the Retirement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

On Friday afternoon, Washington Post reporter Robert Barnes tweeted that the Supreme Court announced Ginsburg has no remaining signs of cancer and will need no additional treatment. She missed oral arguments for the first time in more than 25 years last week.

The White House has told allies at the Judicial Crisis Network and the Federalist Society to ready for another potential hard confirmation battle, Politico reports in an article relying on unnamed sources.

Politico reported that the White House stirrings came in response to Ginsburg being out of the office. If Ginsburg steps down as one of the four liberal justices now serving, President Trump will nearly certainly appoint a conservative replacement, tilting the court further to the Right.

IBM said the Q System One makes it possible to reset qubits in a matter of hours, instead of the days or weeks it normally takes. This can be opened using a motor-driven rotation, in order to simplify the system's maintenance and upgrade process, says IBM.


Ginsburg was released from the hospital about two weeks ago, according to the court, following the surgery earlier last month.

With Ginsburg missing oral argument for the first time since her 1993 appointment, Fox adds, "Ginsburg's recent absence has stirred speculation on whether she was considering retiring, given her previous comments on the topic". In fact, then-Chief Justice Rehnquist missed oral arguments in 44 cases, all of the conferences on those cases, and still wrote the majority opinion in four of them.

Speaking with CNBC, top doctors who have performed pulmonary lobectomies, the procedure Ginsburg underwent, said that they expect the Supreme Court justice would be back on the bench in less than six weeks, in time for the Court's February sitting. "She's barely two weeks out", Dr. Raja Flores, chief of the division of thoracic surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in NY, told CNBC.

This long free agency process may be drawing to a merciful close soon, hopefully in Philadelphia's favor. On the other hand, they prefer Machado so they likely want to know where he's going first.


Ginsburg had colorectal cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer 10 years later.

Congratulations and thank you to all the American good witches, prayer warriors, the LegalZoom School of Wizardy, and everyone who volunteered to donate a body part to Ruth Bader Ginsburg: your fervent (and sometimes overzealous) best wishes for her health and recovery have been granted.

Politico said numerous prospective nominees to replace Ginsburg were women, which theoretically would derail the likelihood of sexual-assault claims such as those faced by Justices Thomas and Kavanaugh.

The court has not yet offered a timetable on Ginsburg's return. It also seems reasonable to assume she would do everything in her power to stay on until President Trump leaves office.
