Supreme Court (SCOTUS) Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg revealed on Friday that she has been diagnosed with cancer yet again and is undergoing chemotherapy.
“On May 19, I began a course of chemotherapy (gemcitabine) to treat a recurrence of cancer. A periodic scan in February followed by a biopsy revealed lesions in my liver. My recent hospitalizations to remove gall stones and treat an infection were unrelated to this occurrence,” Ginsburg explained in her letter.
“Immunotherapy first essayed proved unsuccessful. The chemotherapy course, however, is yielding positive results. Satisfied that my treatment course is now clear, I am providing this information,” she explained.
Ginsburg gave a hopeful message to her supporters despite the dire news, claiming that the cancer is being reduced and her work on the bench is not being adversely impacted.
“My most recent scan on July 7 indicated significant reduction of the liver lesions and no new disease. I am tolerating chemotherapy well and am encouraged by the success of my current treatment. I will continue my bi-weekly chemotherapy to keep my cancer at bay, and am able to maintain an active daily routine. Throughout, I have kept up with opinion writing and all other Court work,” Ginsburg wrote.
“I have often said I would remain a member of the Court as long as I can do the job full steam. I remain fully able to do that,” she concluded.

Observers are remarking on the peculiarity of the 87-year-old liberal justice hiding her most recent cancer diagnosis from the public for several months.
Justice Ginsburg has had liver cancer since February. And the public was not informed until today. https://t.co/ta0DIO2ZFg

If Ruth Bader Ginsburg were conservative, the Radical Left would be protesting daily outside of the Supreme Court & calling for her to resign, & the media would aid them by having “legal experts” (meaning liberals) question her mental acuity.

Big League Politics has reported frequently on Ginsburg’s history with cancer, which she has battled against for decades:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is suffering from pancreatic cancer and finished treatment for a tumor that was found in her pancreas last month, the Supreme Court announced in an official statement earlier today.
“The Justice tolerated treatment well,” Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement. “She cancelled her annual summer visit to Santa Fe, but has otherwise maintained an active schedule.”
“There is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body,” Arberg added.
The SCOTUS maintains that the 86-year-old woman is in good health despite repeated serious health complications for the liberal-leaning justice who Democrats fear will ultimately be replaced by President Donald Trump, giving the high court a conservative majority to rule for generations to come.
“Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans,” Arberg said. “No further treatment is needed at this time.”
Ginsburg had previously been treated for lung cancer late last year, which caused a long public hiatus that resulted in speculation that she had died.
“According to the thoracic surgeon Valerie Rusch, both nodules removed during surgery were found to be malignant on initial pathology evaluation. Post-surgery, there was no evidence of any remaining disease. Scans performed before surgery indicated no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Currently, no further treatment is planned. Justice Ginsburg is resting comfortably and is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days,” the SCOTUS said in a press release from Dec. 2018.
That cancer was discovered after Ginsburg suffered a fall that resulted in several of her ribs being fractured the month before.
Ginsburg should consider resigning from the SCOTUS so she can focus on her health instead of deceiving the public in a vain attempt to prevent President Trump from appointing her successor.
Republican Voter Registration is Surging in Florida, Arizona, and Pennsylvania in the Runup to the November Election
This is even more important than polls.
The Republican Party is handily registering more voters than Democrats in the critical swing states of Florida, Arizona, and Pennsylvania in the advance of the 2020 presidential election, a strong sign for the GOP in the competitive states.
Republicans have registered more than 135,000 voters to their party than Democrats have since 2016, a handy lead in a state in which the margin of victory was 44,000. Pennsylvania is probably the most critical state in the 2020 election.
Republicans have registered a strong plurality of the new voters to register in Arizona since August, with 43% of these voters aligning as Republican. 26% have registered as Democrats, and 29% registered with no party affiliation or with another political party.
Did some further number crunching on the newly registered 57,000 voters in Maricopa, including those from #VoterRegistrationDay that have been input in the system. So far, good news for GOP.
GOP: +24,753 (43%)
DEM: +14,815 (26%)
Other: +16,966 (29%)

President Trump won the southwestern state by 4.5% in 2016, with rapid population growth and immigration turning Arizona into a purple state.
Republicans appear to be crushing Democrats in decisive fashion in the voter registration struggle in Florida, registering a whopping 41% more voters than the Democrat Party is in the state. The GOP registered 58,000 new Republican voters in August alone, a 91% increase when compared to August of 2016. Leading Democrats have even been sounding the alarm in the state, having lost it in 2016 with a far greater numerical voting lead then they’ll have this time.
The Joe Biden campaign has largely refrained from traditional political activism and door-knocking in the state, preferring to let their candidate speak through appearances on Sunday shows and softball interviews.
If the President wins these three states, he’s in an extremely strong position for victory, even if Biden wins Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. He’d need to hold North Carolina and Ohio to end up with 274 electoral college votes in this scenario.
These statistics are more pertinent than polls with highly questionable methodologies and flawed participant selection methods.
