Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader
Ginsburg fractures 3 ribs in fall

Fox News, by Kathleen Joyce

Original Article

Posted By:toledo, 11/8/2018 10:05:38 AM

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Thursday after fracturing three ribs on her left side in a fall at her office a day earlier, the court said in a news release. Ginsburg, 85, initially went home after the accident, which occurred in her Supreme Court office. But she later reported experiencing some discomfort, and was admitted to George Washington University Hospital "for observation and treatment." Ginsburg has survived a series of health scares. She broke two ribs in a fall in 2012,

A whole bunch of democrat fingernails are going to be bitten down to nubs.
Man, would it ever be great if PDJT gets another court nomination.

Sad to hear. That kind of an injury has a way of bringing on more serious physical problems. The President may have to find a replacement.

Very painful..I don´t wish this type of injury on anyone, and neither should the rest of us. (The liberals would jump all over this sort of thing, had it happened to a conservative justice.) (And, yes, it would be wonderful if President Trump gets another SCOTUS nomination.)

To RBG: Sorry about your fall. I saw an ad by John Walsh that might help for the next time this happens. It´s called Life Alert. They can get you the help you need and fast.

Get well soon...because we sure don´t want to give Trump another Supreme Court pick.

Not so sure of that #6. The left puts great store in polls, and most of the poll results I´ve seen indicate that people were disgusted with the way Kavanaugh was treated, and that may have been a major factor in the pubbies gaining senate seats.

Of course the dems are pretty much stuck on stupid, so that lesson may not sink in.

Rib fractures are dangerous in older frail individuals because it’s painful to breathe deeply and cough to clear secretions, and this can lead to pneumonia.

This woman is of the Nine Lives variety.

But this kind of injury at any age is dangerous, mainly from liklihood of pneumonia, and this is super dangerous in the elderly. Justice Ginsburg is a tough lady, and though i´d like her to retire ASAP, i´m praying for her.

It is really painful to breathe when the ribs are broken, but if you don´t breathe expansively, the lungs begin to fill up.

Remember how Rand Paul, a strong, healthy man, became seriously ill after his radical leftwing hate-enraged neighbor cracked his ribs, puncturing his lungs?

Gentle hint. An elderly relative fell and broke an arm, very minor fracture. Was on an unrecoverable downward slide within 72 hours, very sudden, had been old but fine shape earlier the same day.

Not wishing bad on RBG, but I think it´s about time to leave the court.

Dem freakout is just warming up.

I have an elderly friend who had a similar fall, and it triggered Alzheimer´s in him. He became violent and had to be institutionalized until they found the right drug mix to calm him down. Even now, his wife lives in a separate duplex from him.

She should definitely think about retirement. She was lucky she fell at her office. It could have happened at home, where, as far as I know, she lives alone. She needs to be in a different living situation, at least--unless we want a Supreme Court Justice wearing one of those Life Alert things around her neck.

a) if, as has been previously noted, this triggers Alzheimer´s, how would we know the difference? She was an unhinged loon when nominated, for pity sake!
b) yet ANOTHER strong argument for strict Term Limits for judges at ALL levels.
c) yet another strong argument for returning the courts, SCOTUS included, to their proper status as the least powerful of the three Constitutionally authorized branches of the Federal government. Not "co-equal" and certainly not supreme. (the 4th branch, the Administrative State, is an unconstitutional abomination that should be eliminated with extreme prejudice, today).
d) I am reminded of what happens to horses with broken legs. While I´m not -- normally -- in favor of "putting down" human beings, there are times I could make an exception. Just sayin´ .....

Yep, I broke three ribs mountain biking on Sept 10, 2001 in the mountains of Colorado. Very painful to sleep, and sitting up from reclining, like getting out of bed, was very painful. Coughing or sneezing was like a literal knife stab for almost a month. No laughing, either.

Guess why I know the date exactly?

I wish no ill for the justice, but hope she takes this as a hint and retires soon.

When I first read the headline, I thought she fell asleep and fell off of her seat during court.
I broke all of the ribs on my right side and one on the left side, when a van decided it wanted to occupy the same space my motorcycle and I were in. Recovery was slow and painful, and it was 19 years ago, when I was a young 56 year old. I´m sure she is going to be in a lot of pain, and I wouldn´t wish that on anyone, except maybe Pelosi, Waters, Hillary, Schumer or Maxine.

Mrs. Lakerman asked me what would happen if RBG had to be confined to a nursing home.
I told her there is no provision in the U.S. constitution to remove a Justice for that, and explained how Mrs. Wilson, President Wilson´s young bride, ran the presidency by pretending to take messages to him and orders from him, after he had his stroke. (His first wife died just prior to his first inauguration, the opportunistic young debutante latched on to him.)

I doubt she will be able to perform her duties on the court for a few weeks which will let the limbs short of a vote to block the majority. Dems have got to be freaking out. This should surely bring dems to their knees praying for her quick recovery. We, conservatives, will pray for her recovery despite our politics. I seriously dems would do the same, if it was a conservative justice.

In the elderly, broken bones don´t heal as well and often lead to being bedridden/sedentary and the downward spiral to death usually via opportunistic illness. I in no way wish RBG anything but good healing wishes. She needs to retire and work on surviving this. It will be an uphill fight.

There´s bone loss after Chemotherapy and particularly pronounced in the elderly. RBG´s falling asleep episodes are indicative of lack of oxygen to the brain so she has a tough battle ahead of her. I join all above in prayer for her health and if the good Lord suggests she retire I´ll agree with Him on that too!

WASHINGTON — A day after Melania Trump took the extraordinary step of issuing a statement condemning Mira Ricardel, the deputy national security adviser who had made enemies throughout her tenure, Ms. Ricardel was spotted in her office on Wednesday, packing her bags. Hours later, the White House said that Ms. Ricardel was indeed leaving her post but that she would still work in the administration — just not under the first lady’s roof. “Mira Ricardel will continue to support the president as she departs the White House to transition to a new role within the administration,”

Donald Trump sought Wednesday to land a massive blow in his long-fought battle against the news media, with administration lawyers asserting in court that the president could bar “all reporters” from the White House complex for any reason he sees fit. The sweeping claim, which came in the first public hearing over CNN’s lawsuit to restore correspondent Jim Acosta’s White House credentials, could have a dramatic impact on news organizations’ access to government officials if it is upheld in court.

His nickname translates to “Shorty,” but everything about the federal racketeering trial of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera is enormous. He’s accused of trafficking over 440,000 pounds of cocaine — in addition to mountains of other drugs — and maintaining power over his sprawling Sinaloa Cartel through murder, kidnappings and torture. The jury for his case, which is expected to last four months, was whittled down from almost 1,000 prospective panelists. Prosecutors have hundreds of thousands of pages of evidence, and over 100,000 audio recordings.

A federal judge handed CNN a major victory on Friday, ruling that President Donald Trump White House must temporarily restore the press credentials it stripped from the network´s chief White House correspondent last week while a lawsuit plays out.

He declared that the White House failed to give Acosta ´due process,´ something guaranteed in government proceedings under the Fifth Amendment. ´I want to thank all of my colleagues in the press who supported us this week,´ Acosta told other reporters outside the federal
