Supreme Court (SCOTUS) Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized yet again after suffering from a fever and the chills.
Ginsburg, 87, is currently holed up in The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Doctors performed a procedure to clean her bile duct stent, and she is expected to stay hospitalized at the facility for a few days.
“The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment,” SCOTUS spokesperson Kathleen Arberg said in a statement.
Big League Politics has reported on Ginsburg’s recent run-ins with cancer, which caused her to miss significant time on the bench just last year:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is sick yet again. She missed legal arguments today due to supposed “stomach bug” that rendered her ill.
Chief Justice John Roberts made the announcement that RBG was “indisposed due to illness.” Her illness forced her to miss courtroom arguments for two cases.
RBG’s health has taken a turn for the worse over the past year, as she has undergone two cancer scares and suffered broken ribs from a fall. She is the oldest judge on the SCOTUS right now at the age of 86, and liberals fear that her waning condition will allow President Donald Trump to replace her with a strong conservative.
RBG has had four separate bouts with cancer, with the most recent coming over the summer when she was treated with radiation over a three-week period.
Ginsburg is steadfastly hanging onto her SCOTUS seat, doggedly refusing to step down despite her many health problems. She has been a massive critic of President Donald Trump since before he was elected to office.
“He is a faker,” Ginsburg said of Trump in 2016. “He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. … How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that.”
“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” she added.
Now that Ginsburg has to live through the reality of a Trump presidency, she desperately wants to hang on to her SCOTUS seat so he will not appoint her successor. With her mounting health concerns, she may not have a choice but to allow President Trump to choose her replacement in the very near future.
Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump
The GOP is crumbling.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is warning that at least one-third of GOP senators will revolt and leave the party if Republicans join Democrats to convict the president.
This would potentially create the most viable third party in recent political history if Republican leadership is foolish enough to go down this path. Even though he refused to oppose the vote steal last week, Paul claims he and many of his colleagues intend to leave the party forever if the Senate goes through with impeachment.
“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul said while appearing on FOX News on Friday night. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”
“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul added. “This isn’t about, anymore, about the Electoral College, it’s about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”
Paul made these responses after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) publicly flirted with the idea of voting to convict President Trump.
“I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell said.
Paul is putting McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership on notice. This is the line in the sand as far as he is concerned.
“They will destroy the Republican Party. If leadership is complicit with an impeachment or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul said.
“Like I say, I have opposed President Trump when I thought he was wrong, I’ve been for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency, and impeachment is purely a partisan thing,” he added.
The full segment with Paul and host Laura Ingraham can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on the division within the GOP since 10 Republican turncoats in the House join Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time:
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added…
Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”
The realignment that is happening within the conservative movement might result in the destruction of the Republican Party. President Trump may ultimately destroy the GOP swamp.
