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.)

I wish Ginsburg a speedy recover. If President Trump has to nominate a replacement, all h3ll will happen. If you think Kavanaugh´s confirmation was bad, hold tight. Kavanaugh´s confirmation was a walk in the park compared to the next one.

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.

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´ .....

As previous posters have stated and from personal experience, this is very painful and recovery will be at least a month. God forbid she has to sneeze or cough and getting in and out of bed will be a nightmare. I wish her a speedy recovery followed by a retirement announcement.

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!

The front page of the London Daily Mirror undoubtedly had it wrong when it ran a front page on Wednesday with a full-length photo of Prime Minister May with the bold headlines covering the rest of the page: “No Hope No Clue No Deal No Confidence.” A Guardian editorialist got somewhat carried away, as the Guardian almost always does in its lobotomous socialist biases, when he traced the present impasse back to Henry VIII’s apostasy

Members of the Sackler family, which owns the company that makes OxyContin, directed years of efforts to mislead doctors and patients about the dangers of the powerful opioid painkiller, a court filing citing previously undisclosed documents contends. When evidence of growing abuse of the drug became clear in the early 2000s, one of them, Richard Sackler, advised pushing blame onto people who had become addicted. “We have to hammer on abusers in every way possible,” Mr. Sackler wrote in an email in 2001, when he was president of the company, Purdue Pharma. “They are the culprits and the problem.

For months now, the Department of Justice (DOJ) quietly has been working on a revision to its guidelines governing how, when and why prosecutors can obtain the records of journalists, particularly in leak cases. The work has been supervised by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s office, especially since former Attorney General Jeff Sessions departed, but is not wrapped up. The effort has the potential to touch off a First Amendment debate with a press corps that already has high degrees of distrust of and disfunction with the Trump administration.

Six months ago, with the 2020 Presidential race barely within view, Elizabeth Warren mentioned a new political theme on which she intended to concentrate. Opposing corruption, she told a reporter, “is becoming a much more defining part of my work.” Corruption has a common-sense definition, one that is quite stark: “The seizure of governmental authority by special interests at the expense of the general welfare,” as Richard L. McCormick, a historian of political corruption in America and a former president of Rutgers University, put it to me this week.

Wisconsin police are providing an update on Jayme Closs who was found alive Thursday after a three month disappearance. Closs vanished Oct. 15 after her parents -- James Closs, 56, and Denise Closs, 46, -- were gunned down inside their home in Barron County, located about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis. Officials determined Closs was inside the home when her parents were murdered, but then the trail went cold. Closs was eventually placed on the top of the FBI’s kidnapping and missing persons list and, while details were scarce, authorities continued to suggest Closs was alive.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus — and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold. The effort, described by nearly 20 lawmakers and aides, is part carrot, part stick: Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans. Others simultaneously warn Ocasio-Cortez is destined for a lonely, ineffectual career in Congress if she continues to treat her own party as the enemy.

When the Times initially reported on the news, they said Manafort had his former campaign deputy Rick Gates pass the data

While Warren, Harris, Booker, and Biden are bruited as potential Democratic candidates in 2020, there may be a surprise candidate being groomed right now. Barack Obama´s trajectory from the Illinois state Senate to the Oval Office in four years is instructive. In March of 2000, Obama was a state senator in Illinois, a post he had since 1996 with virtually no political recognition. What he did have is a sterling résumé: an eight-year scholarship to Occidental College, a transfer into Columbia University, a post-college job as a "community organizer,"

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Wednesday night she “doesn’t care” if the Secret Service said it was prepared to appropriately secure the State of the Union address despite the partial government shutdown.

(Photo) In a letter to President Trump, Pelosi claimed the lack of funds to Homeland Security posed a risk to the White House and the Congress during the event, but the Department of Homeland Security Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen released a statement refuting that. She shared that statement in a

An ESPN host suggested Wednesday it was racist for President Donald Trump to serve fast food to the Clemson football team at the White House, saying such food being given to players of a "predominately black sport" gave her pause. (Snip)While the players appeared to enjoy the food, some political and sports observers took Trump to task for what they considered a low-class gesture.

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies. The ad starts off with audio of news about the #MeToo movement, saying, “We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We

Guillermo Robles in a lawsuit filed back in September 2016 first accused the popular pizza chain of violating the Americans with Disabilities Act “for its failure to design, construct, maintain, and operate its website to be fully accessible and independently usable” for those who are blind. The Americans with Disabilities Act, made law in 1990, says it is unlawful

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke recently questioned the modern-day relevance of the U.S. Constitution and whether the country should still be governed by “the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago.” “I think that’s the question of the moment: Does this still work?” Mr. O’Rourke asked during a taped conversation with two friends, which he aired to thousands in response to President Trump’s Oval Office address to the American people about the border wall, The Washington Post reported Tuesday. “Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships
