Ruth Bader Ginsburg

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent surgery to remove cancerous tumors in her lung, according to published reports.

Ginsberg, 85, was hospitalized in November after breaking 3 ribs during a fall in her office at the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C.

The Supreme Court issued a statement on Friday morning, saying Ginsberg underwent surgery to remove cancerous lung tumors and there was no evidence of cancer anywhere else in her body.

Ginsburg fractured three ribs on her left side in November. She was admitted to a hospital for observation, but the Supreme Court delayed issuing a statement until a week after she was discharged home.

Ginsberg also broke 2 ribs during a fall in June 2012. She is the oldest justice on the Supreme Court and the second of four women to serve on the nation's highest court.

Ginsberg was heavily criticized by members of Congress and the public for not retiring while former President Barack Obama was still in office so he could pick her successor.

So far, President Trump has chosen Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace retired Justice Anthony Kennedy. If Ginsberg is forced to retire for medical reasons, Trump will have the opportunity to appoint another conservative justice to the Supreme Court.

Ginsberg's ongoing health issues are a major concern for her supporters who fear that President Trump has already chosen her replacement.

Worried Ginsburg supporters took to social media in November to offer their ribs and other internal organs to keep her alive until Trump leaves office in 6 years.

    July 2009 interview published in the New York Times Magazine

    Ginsburg said: “Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”

  • Keekz

    I concur. I'm in NO way a supporter. In fact, Im sick of all these 90 year old evil mofos in these positions, making decisions based on how the country looked 50 years ago. However, the alternative is too much to consider.

  • R Smith

    Hopes she's ok, but I'm MAD at her for not retiring earlier. #45 will get another appointment :o(

  • Yup, I said it

    One that doesnt use Putin as their unofficial political advisor, is a good place to start.

  • SpiceGirl

  • WhoKnew

    Get well soon RBG.

    This is an APB (All Points Bulletin) for Dump trolls. Y'alls favorite "auntie" and numero uno Dump supporter is trolling y'all again. She know damned well Dump ain't gonna be in office in 6 years but she and the other Dump cult members will try to hypnotize you into believing that he will. You'd be better off just letting them lead you immediately to the fiery furnace cuz they know you'd follow him anywhere because he told you to. When he says lie the trolls lie. When he says jump the trolls say how high. It is absolutely frightening to see people give up their souls to the devil incarnate.

  • KLove

    You know exactly what group she was speaking of LOL..dont be naive

  • Mielle Downey

    No hilda beast and her husband just gave the US uranium to Putin and was in bed with him longer as a threesome. Gtfoh you are deranged.

  • MsPam

  • Lucky8

  • Mielle Downey

    I dabble in astrology and I hate to say it but most of the astrologers I follow it seems likely.

    There is one astrologer that I stumbled upon on youtube who happens to be a Trump supporters believes that Trump will be assassinated shortly after he's re-elected in 2020.

    We will see.

  • Phillybruh

  • Fire & Ice

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I like Leo da King ....... he bout the only one on there that I watch ..... him and Wonder girl astrology ...... most of those astrologers basically following a strategic script and will be lost in the sauce .... life is way more than astrology ... if ya follow that will surely fugg up .... because these alignments this go round have never been seen ..... even scientist are like wtf ..... know why ..... cause this is judgement .... many will be judged now .... authority has changed .... problem is the ones who currently hold (false authority) will fail miserably .... this bout to get deep this next year and so forth .... There will be a set of people ..... life will change drastically because of all the missdeeds they have been hiding and I do mean drastic ..... a tug of war is happening for power .... many dark youtube reeaders astrologist are carefully placed to keep people ... stuck in old ways .... very few real ones out there openly ......

  • Renee26

    Yes!!

  • lovelygamour

    she just hanging on until she can insure a good replacement.

    obama really shouldve played dirty like trump. clarence thomas wife messed up so bad he should be impeached. scalia and i believe alito couldve been impeached. thats 3 seats right there. instead of kagen and sotomayor they couldve went more left. then pressured ginsburg to go due to age. yes, i understand congress was giving him hell but he couldve had a lot of them removed for campaign finance. mitch mcconnell left his wife to marry the daughter or a chinese shipping baron who gave him a lot of money. that shipping baron has been untouched in any trade war and has gain a lot because of this marriage. his daughter is now secratary of transportation. hello.

    instead obama left all the dirty work for the next democrat to do but trump won. so now look at the supreme court. just a bunch of wasted money cause they are going to roll us back to the stone age.

  • Peppermint Patty

    Owen...OWEEENNN!!!lol that's my shit right there

  • lovelygamour

    black women really didnt get abortions back then and if they did it was by a sort of midwife or supplements. she was probably talking about an immigrant group. remember most black women was married back then. in the article she talked about the distances these women had to travel. most blacks lived in cities. so she was talking about a poor whites.

  • lovelygamour

    like strom thurman. that man stayed in office until he was 90's and held up a lot of progress.

  • lovelygamour

    i read a pregnant mistress. if thats true and he didnt ask if he could have another kid then wendy has to leave him. he is to much trouble at this point. every 2-3 years he embarrasses her. she doesnt need him as her manager. its like he is begging for her to divorce him.

  • lovelygamour

    i tried out a irl reader who was just following a script. she got a few timelines right but i know the score. i ended up just bouncing ideas off of her, buying some florida water and left. I cant believe the old scams are coming back. my mother and others told me about the psych scams. i see others didnt pass that on to their children. those youtube readers are basically just for entertainment. just to hear stuff you never heard before. I dont think I would take any one of their advice.

  • lovelygamour

    now a days you have to go to movies by yourself. the last time I decided to go to the show there was so many kids by themselves. its common in some areas. if you want to see a movie in an actually theater you have to jump on it before they pull it.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    The scams are obvious though ..... It won't manifest ... .. Not a good time to seek outside of yourself for right now anyways..... major psychic attacks are happening to everybody .... I wouldn't recommend no reader right now ..... if they doing a bunch of readings..... man ...... readers have to clear their energies many are not ..... some of them be sick front and center doing a reading ...... And folks will stay in a cycle . no manifestation .... only bits and pieces of the equation . then it repeats .... the person don't even realize they repeating a pattern ... doing the complete opposite of what readings are for ...... so be careful ...... Guidance is there period .... scam or not .... it's what you take from the reading .... if you feel they full of shyt..... they are ...... if the reading fits with your vibration you will know .... and you will learn ....

  • lovelygamour

    the same. I feel bad because they claim she has done good for women. however i guess to move up with the men she had to develop an edge. I just feel bad about the whole supreme court now.

  • Li-Wright

    Trump is just counting the days when she either dies or retires.

  • Li-Wright

    Ms. Pam -- go see the Favourite!!! OMG, I was watching that movie about Queen Anne and all I could think about was Trump. She's as crazy as he is.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    She always looked like an hag, to me?, who likes to chain smoke cigarettes.

    Get better soon???

  • Yup, I said it

    Strom would work up a sweat voting down every progressive policy and minority civil rights .Then would go mail a child support check to his black mistress and their mixed up daughter. Damn Demon.

  • MsPam

    Okay I will. Thanks!

  • Blue

    Please hang in there till we get ole boy out of office.

  • Li-Wright

    I think she's hanging on because of Trump. She wants to last at least 2 more years, because if not, he's going to appoint a far-right justice (who knows who...) and there's also another Supreme who's due to retire, so that would make 2 Supremes he would appoint. The election in 2016 wasn't about jobs and policies and MAGA, it was about Supremes appointments.

  • Li-Wright

    Actually the decisions the Supremes have made recently, show that Kavanaugh and Roberts can be right or left in their decisions. It's Clarence Thomas who needs to get his arse off the bench.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    The African albino people don't know what they're doing either way it go. So just wave bye and watch the theatrical entertainment

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Isn't trump technically a democrat, who won as a republican, though

  • Goodii2Shoes

    others didnt pass that on to their children.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    She was talking about the white women. They know they are not supposed to be breeding their albino selves. Now look at them: diseased, malformed, incestuous, and matricidal/etc.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    she was talking about a poor whites
    ------------

    She was referring to white people. They know they are not supposed to be freely breeding their albinism.. which is why they had laws prior to 1920 not allowing casual sex and bastard children...
