Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg revealed today that she has been receiving chemotherapy since May after doctors discovered that her liver cancer has returned.
She says that chemo has shrunk the polyps on her liver and that she is not having adverse effects from the chemo. Ginsburg says she is not retiring.
This is why it is vitally important that President Trump be reelected.
He may yet get to name someone to replace her on the court and by placing a conservative in her place, it will counteract the traitorous votes of Chief Justice John Roberts who has become the John McCain of the Supreme Court.

Ginsburg has been fighting cancer of one type or another since 1999, when she developed colon cancer.
She then was treated for pancreatic cancer in 2009 and in 2018 had two cancerous growths removed from her lung. Last year she suffered from pancreatic cancer again. And now she is fighting off cancerous polyps on her liver.
She found out about the most recent cancer just weeks after she was declared cancer-free in 2019. Let’s face it, her health has been getting worse and worse and there are only so many times she can valiantly fight back at the cancer that she has had on most of her vital organs and expecting her to be able to continue serving on the court for another four and a half years is just a remote possibility at best.
The Supreme Court said in a Tuesday statement:
“Justice Ginsburg was admitted to the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland early this morning for treatment of a possible infection. She was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. last night after experiencing fever and chills.”
“She underwent an endoscopic procedure at Johns Hopkins this afternoon to clean out a bile duct stent that was placed last August. The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment.”
