Georgia Rep. John Lewis, a longtime congressman and civil rights leader, announced Sunday he's undergoing treatment for stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Lewis, a Democrat who has represented Georgia's 5th Congressional District for over 30 years, said doctors discovered the cancer during a routine visit. "While I am clear-eyed about the prognosis, doctors have told me that recent medical advances have made this type of cancer treatable in many cases, that treatment options are no longer as debilitating as they once were, and that I have a fighting chance," Lewis said in a statement.

The people I’ve known who’ve died of this horrific cancer - including my beloved father - have all been wonderful, amazing souls. And then there’s RBG and Harry Reid so this dirtbag Lewis will probably be one of the very lucky few as well. I have so many questions for God if I manage to make it to heaven.

I'm sincerely sorry to hear that anyone, anyone at all, has been handed a cancer diagnosis. However, John Lewis is like so many noisy Black Congressional Caucus members, he feathers his own nest, keeps getting elected, and year after year doesn't do a thing to improve the lives of his constituents.

That's a horrible fate, pancreatic cancer is the worst. I'm sorry for anybody who has to go that road. He was a giant once, he's rotted in office. It's a shame. I hope he will have the grace to see this catastrophic illness as a reason to leave office and not put ego ahead of service to his constituents like Ted Kennedy and McCain did.

One wonders what a person such as he thinks when receiving a diagnosis like this. My aunt recently died of Stage 4 lung cancer. She had been told that she had another 18 months to live, but God called her home suddenly way before that. Nevertheless, she was prepared and that was the best gift she left behind -- her family is at peace knowing she's in the redemptive arms of Jesus. However, one wonders what this congressman thinks as he will inevitably face his Maker. Will he recall and regret and repent of his past corruption and behavior....or does he think that he's got nothing to worry about -- after all, he's seen to it that his kin have been amply provided for (no matter the means!) and therefore he'll be rewarded and praised on his day of reckoning?

My younger brother is going through this, having been diagnosed with stage 1 / early stage 2 pancreatic cancer earlier this year after severe stomach issues. He has been undergoing chemo and radiation therapy to shrink the tumour so that it can be completely removed. His recent cancer indicators were in the hundreds instead of the thousands and his doctor told him recently that he "is winning" his fight. I pray that this is correct. He was with us for Thanksgiving and Christmas and looks good, albeit tired and much thinner. Cancer sucks, even for "civil rights icons!!"

While we were blessed with over 11 years with my father-in-law after diagnosis of pancreatic cancer (it was just luck that it was discovered before symptoms emerged, although the treatment nearly killed him), I know that this is a form of cancer that at that Stage is a difficult prognosis. As a doctor once told me, it's a time where you go to Fiji and don't worry about the Visa bill. My prayers to Rep. Lewis and his family. I may not agree with him on everything politically, but Stage 4 pancreatic cancer is something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

My grandfather died one week after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. As a human being I do not wish this on anyone. However, this man has used his badge of "civil rights icon" to mean that he is untouchable as a politician. Those who disagree with him are obviously racist. A person at the age of 79 with a stage four cancer needs to resign. Prepare yourself for medical treatment and spend some quality time with your family. We all can be replaced. America will continue if he decides to take his leave.

Cancer is not as bad as Alzheimer's disease. What Alzheimer's does to your mind and body is like a long living death that's humiliating, degrading and very expensive for your long care. There's not one thing that slows or cures Alzheimer's. You're lucky if it kills you quickly or you die from something else first. John Lewis is a nasty POS. Good riddance to bad black racist rubbish. Karma as others have commented.

CNN has been a constant anti-Trump machine for the past three years. So when they say omething which helps the president, you know that it has to be a pretty obvious statement of fact. Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, one of the Trump defense lawyers, laid out the case of the Bidens and Ukraine at the Senate impeachment trial. She did a great job, pointing out the real concerns and questions raised by Hunter’s work for Burisma while Joe was the point man for Barack Obama on Ukraine.

From early in our nation’s history, America’s intellectuals have mostly looked down on their own country and yearned for it to be like someplace else–someplace more sophisticated, and more in tune with “modern” intellectual currents, whatever they might be at the moment. That is a long history, which I will skip over. In our own time, American intellectuals have claimed that Soviet Russia, Germany and Japan were harbingers of the future that the U.S. needed to imitate. In each case, the point was that we had to shed our archaic freedoms and enter the brave new world of central planning under the control–benign, of course!–of intellectuals and bureaucrats.

1975 was an exciting time to be at Boston University’s School of Public Communication. There we were, about 30 students seeking a Master’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism. All of us thought our quest was noble, that we would become purveyors of truth, skilled fact-finders and truth-tellers in the Watergate tradition. The lessons presented were well worth the tens of thousands of dollars I had to pay for them. Forty-five years later, having reached the top of my profession, I generally despise my own industry, something I never could have predicted. Here’s why.

Nancy Pelosi’s fecklessness has ensured that Americans understand impeachment to be a purely political matter, and as a purely political matter impeachment is as dead as your leftover Christmas turkey. Only a few days after the impeachment vote, President Donald Trump hit his best job-approval rating ever in the Quinnipiac poll. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is ready to slap the process around like a housecat tormenting a sparrow. The magic bullet missed, and now Democrats have to make a more ordinary case against Trump. The problem is: They don’t know how. The case against Trump in 2016 was that he is unfit for the office.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently made tiny tears into her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address— so that her speech-ripping moment could go off without a hitch. As Trump introduced cancer-stricken radio host Rush Limbaugh—who received the Medal of Freedom during the speech—Pelosi could be seen grabbing the pages off the table. Video shows her making what seemed to be a tearing motion and then placing the pages back on the table. Photos of the sheets of paper show them face down on the table with small slits on the side, near where Pelosi would eventually rip them into pieces.

Wow, that was one hell of a State of the Union Address. President Trump seized the center with a powerful, patriotic and utterly centrist speech. And then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reinforced his message with her oh-so-symbolic ripping up of the text. What, other than channeling the alienation of the Democratic base from the great American center, was she thinking? This was the very best of Trump — generous, bipartisan (with a few barbs) and good-spirited. He not only got congressional Democrats to stand and cheer, but he also credited the legislators in the room for working together across party lines to do right by America.

Diogenes is said to have asked what is the difference between a man and a plucked chicken since both are featherless bipeds. Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) calls this into question again today. Romney’s vote to convict President Trump of “abuse of power” for inquiring into the flow of money from Ukraine into the pockets of the Bidens after the appearance that Vice President Joe Biden had directly intervened in Ukrainian internal affairs either to repay the favor or shield the corruption from sunlight, is among the most degraded public acts of a generation. Romney very clearly wants revenge. He lost the presidency in 2012, denounced Donald Trump’s candidacy in 2016
