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.

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.
Prominent Trump Backers Join Progressive Leftists to Sign Letter Urging the President to Pardon Julian Assange
Trump must act while there is still time.
President Donald Trump is being urged by a bipartisan coalition to pardon whistleblowers’ advocate Julian Assange, who is facing charges under the Espionage Act for reporting accurately on war crimes and other heinous government and corporate abuses.
The WikiLeaks founder has been brutalized in a hellish super-max prison in Britain awaiting possible extradition to the U.S. for nearly two years now. Trump has a chance to foil the deep state’s plans to make an example of Assange and set the precedent for other journalists to be attacked in a similar manner.
An eclectic mix of individuals, including hardcore Trump backers, far-left civil liberties activists, former Nobel Prize winners, and current and former heads of state, have signed onto a letter imploring the president to pardon Assange.
The letter, which was delivered in December, urges President Trump to put a “defining stamp on your presidential legacy by pardoning Julian Assange or stopping his extradition.” It was signed by veteran right-wing operatives Roger Stone and Dinesh D’Souza, both of whom received pardons from the president.
The former presidents of the Dominican Republic, Paraguay, Switzerland, Columbia and Brazil also signed the letter. Other signatories include former Nobel Laureates Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Mairead Maguire, Shirin Ebadi and Rigoberta Menchú.
“The US prosecution of Assange is unprecedented: he faces 175 years in prison for the same publications for which he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. This prosecution threatens the constitutional protections that Americans hold dear. By offering a pardon, to put a stop to the prosecution of Assange, your presidency will be remembered for having saved First Amendment protections for all Americans,” the letter stated.
Other notable signatories on the letter include Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), actress Pamela Anderson, film director Oliver Stone, Gateway Pundit founder Jim Hoft, best-selling libertarian author Tom Woods, and many others.
Big League Politics has reported on Assange’s detention after the informational titan had been arguably the most influential media personality responsible for Crooked Hillary’s stunning defeat in 2016:
Former Texas Republican and ‘god father’ of the tea party movement Ron Paul thinks the deep state may be out to shut WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange up permanently.
The 83-year-old liberty icon spoke out about the ongoing abuse of Assange by U.K. authorities on an edition of his “Ron Paul Liberty Report” broadcast earlier today. Paul believes the mistreatment of Assange is undergoing is a ‘tragic story’ emblematic of how the deep state treats whistle-blowers.
Paul compares the treatment of Assange by U.K. authorities to how the North Koreans treated U.S. student Otto Warmbier before he died.
“If he had a terminal disease or something happens to him, good, bad, or whatever and he dies in the prison, how would we look a lot different to the North Koreans on the surface?” Paul asked.
Paul noted reports of Assange’s “very very bad” health and feels that U.K. and U.S. authorities want to make an example of the man “for being a journalist” by either killing him or putting him in prison for life…
Nils Melzer, the United Nations’ special rapporteur on torture, visited Assange with two medical professionals who have a background in examining torture victims on May 9. He issued a report on the “the extremely hostile and arbitrary environment” created for Assange.
Melzer claims the U.K, along with the U.S. and Ecuador, are engaging in “relentless and unrestrained campaign of public mobbing, intimidation and defamation against Mr. Assange.”
Assange was ejected from the Ecuadorean embassy in the UK after his asylum status was revoked in April. He was previously isolated from society under house arrest there for seven years.
The detention of Assange shows that no good deed goes unpunished in this cruel, backward world. President Trump has a chance to salvage his legacy if he pardons Assange. If Trump fails in this regard, the deep state will have escaped his four-year term without any major push back against their unconstitutional overreach.
