President Trump said Friday he hopes that ailing 85-year-old Supreme CourtJustice Ruth Bader Ginsburg gets well soon.

“I wish her well. I hope she serves on the Supreme Court for many, many years,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House.

Justice Ginsburg broke three ribs Wednesday night in a fall at her office at the high court and was hospitalized. The incident renewed speculation about her possible retirement.

Mr. Trump pointed out that the liberal justice isn’t “exactly on my side.”

“She said something very inappropriate during the campaign, but she apologized for it,” he said.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Justice Ginsburg called Mr. Trump “a faker.”

“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 said in an interview.

Mr. Trump has changed the balance of power on the Supreme Court by appointing two conservative justices, Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh, in his first two years in office.

The justice, who has survived two bouts of cancer, has said she wants to serve on the court until at least 2020, the next presidential election year.

On Thursday, we reported on the update of the 85-year-old justice’s condition:

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 85-years-old. She looks to be the next justice replaced on the high court by President Trump. She could have retired during Obama’s tenure, but Ginsburg being a leftist surely thought Hillary Clinton would win. That was her mistake and our gain.

Ginsburg reportedly fell at the Supreme Court yesterday evening, breaking three ribs and had to be rushed to George Washington University Hospital early this morning. Ginsburg’s cancer has also been rumored to have returned and she will allegedly retire in January. President Trump now stands to nominate and swear in a third Supreme Court Justice further determining the path of the high court for a generation or more. More from The Washington Times:

Supreme CourtJustice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Thursday after breaking ribs in a fall at the high court.

A press release from the Supreme Court press office said Justice Ginsburg was taken to George Washington University Hospital Thursday morning, after “experiencing discomfort overnight.”

The 85-year-old justice reportedly fell in her office at the Court Wednesday night.

Her hospitalization came on the same day that President Trump and first lady Melania Trump were to attend the investiture of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh at the high court. Justice Kavanaugh was sworn in last month.

Justice Ginsburg, a liberal who is the court’s senior justice, has served for more than 25 years after being appointed by former President Bill Clinton in 1993. She is a survivor of colon cancer and pancreatic cancer.

Also from CNBC:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, fell in her office at the court and fractured three ribs, according to a release Thursday.

“She went home, but after experiencing discomfort overnight, went to George Washington University Hospital early this morning,” the statement from the court said. “Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on her left side and she was admitted for observation and treatment.”

Ginsburg’s health has been a matter of intense speculation in recent years. Ginsburg, the court’s oldest member, is one of its four liberal justices. She is the second woman to ever serve.

It is not the first time that Ginsburg has fractured her ribs while on the court. In June 2012, Ginsburg fractured two ribs in a fall and did not disclose the incident to the public until months later. The court said at the time that despite the fracture, Ginsburg “did not skip a beat.”

The Brooklyn-native has said that she plans to serve on the court until she is 90, and has hired law clerks through 2020.

Her approach to the law has been described as cautious, though she has been influential in shaping jurisprudence in cases involving gender discrimination, women’s reproductive health and international law.

She was the principal author of a landmark brief that led Supreme Court, in 1971, to apply the the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment to women.

Ginsburg was appointed to the court by President Bill Clinton in 1993. Before joining the court, she worked as the director of the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project.

She has survived multiple bouts with cancer, and in 2014 underwent a procedure to have a stent placed in her right coronary artery.

News of Ginsburg’s fall comes on the same morning as the formal investiture of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump‘s second nominee to the high court.

The court said that more information would be provided as it became available.

WHOA: Trump Admin Reveals BIGGEST Move Again Yet Again Acosta — ‘Permanently’

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Sara Palin

The drama between the Trump administration and CNN reporter Jim Acosta may not be done anytime soon as it is being reported the White House press staff are looking to have Acosta permanently banned.

The ban comes amid a legal feud between Acosta, CNN, and the White House.

Here’s how everything has gone down:

Acosta initially refused to hand over a microphone to a White House intern, resisting her attempt to retrieve it.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused Acosta of putting his hand on the intern, called the incident unacceptable, and subsequently banned him.

They took his press credentials and suspended him from covering events at the White House.

CNN and Acosta sued the Trump administration over the incident, claiming Acosta’s First and Fifth Amendment rights were violated.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly said the White House violated Acosta’s right to a due process as they pulled his media pass and denied Acosta an option to repeal his revocation.

The judge ordered the White House to immediately restore Acosta’s press credentials.

So…

The Trump administration is complying with the order and will reinstate Acosta, but they are making a move to have him permanently banned from the White House, the Daily Caller reports.

The White House sent a letter to Acosta notifying him that his pass granting him temporary access to the White House grounds would be suspended after a temporary restraining order runs its course. The letter is the latest in the fight between the White House and the CNN reporter who caused a fracas at a recent presidential press conference when he refused to give up the microphone.

Judge Timothy J. Kelly issued an injunction Friday morning ordering the White House to reinstate Acosta’s credentials, saying his Fifth Amendment right to due process was violated. The judge was clear, however, that he made no ruling on whether the First Amendment right applies for any reporter to be at the White House.

According to the report, President Trump admitted he was not sure whether the administration would ultimately win the CNN lawsuit.

“We’ll see how the court rules,” the president said.

“Is it freedom of the press when somebody comes in and starts screaming questions and won’t sit down?” he added, speaking of Acosta.

Should the administration lose the lawsuit, Trump revealed his administration has a strategy.

During an interview with Fox News, Trump said the White House press team would implement new policies and rules for reporters such as turning off cameras.

“I think one of the things we’ll do is maybe turn the camera off that faces them because then they don’t have any airtime, although I’ll probably be sued for that and maybe, you know, win or lose it, who knows,” Trump said, as the Daily Caller reports.

As the legal feud continues, the Trump administration announced they would be “temporarily” reinstating Acosta’s press pass and would be complying to the order, BUT they are giving him a 14-day pass and will resume their suspension once it expires.

The Hill reports CNN is already responding to the move by requesting an emergency court hearing:

CNN on Monday requested an emergency hearing in the U.S. District Court after the White House threatened to again pull the press credentials of the network’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta.

CNN said the letter amounts to an “attempt to provide retroactive due process,” calling for a hearing on a preliminary injunction during “the week of November 26, 2018, or as soon thereafter as possible.”

Democrat-Controlled House Just Changed Major 181-Year Rule For Muslims

Published

* By

181 years is a long time for a dress code to stay in place… even for Congress. Hats were forbidden in the House of Representatives, but no more. Of course, members are being told to use good judgment but given their track record, this should be interesting to watch. Now, men and women will be allowed to wear ‘hats’ in the chamber.

Change is not always good and this will probably wind up being a circus. Ilhan Omar, a newly elected Democratic congresswoman from Minnesota, is behind this move. She will be the first to wear an Islamic hijab in the chamber. Lawmakers will be allowed to wear religious headwear and coverings for medical reasons – so there are some restrictions on this at least for now.

Chicks on the Right has the scoop on this story:

Ok…so I have a feeling some “traditionalists” are going to have an issue with this. CHANGE IS BAAD.

But honestly, after hearing from Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, I don’t have a problem with this at all. I think (I hope) that Congresspeople will go about this with respect and their best judgment. (That’s… a high hope for Congress.)

So anyway, the U.S. House has changed a 181-year-old dress code rule against hats.

According to Daily Wire:

Back in 1837, the U.S. House of Representatives banned the wearing of hats in the chamber in a move to differentiate itself from the British Parliament.

But in 2018, the elected lawmakers have voted to rescind the rule. Ilhan Omar, a newly elected Democratic congresswoman from Minnesota, will be the first to wear a hijab in the chamber.

“There are those kinds of policies that oftentimes get created because people who have blind spots are in positions of influence and positions of power,” Omar told the New York Post on Thursday. “I think it will be really exciting to see the stuff that we notice within the rules that don’t work for a modern-day America.”

Under the revised rules, lawmakers will be allowed to wear religious headwear and coverings for medical reasons.

I’m not a fan of Ilhan Omar’s, but I am a staunch supporter of religious freedom. I’m not the kind of hypocrite who supports the rights of Christians not to have their religion infringed upon, and will not do the same for others. It’s Omar’s constitutionally-protected RIGHT to wear her hijab. She was elected by her constituents to represent them. She should not have to choose between upholding her religious dress code and that of her congressional position. The END.

And that’s not all. The new rule allows for head covering for religious AND medical reasons. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman made a compelling point.

The New Jersey Democrat had a tumor successfully removed and has undergone chemotherapy since September to ensure she’s cancer-free.

The treatment caused her hair to fall out. She wears a hat outside, but when she votes on the House floor she takes it off.

“I just have a bald head and I’m somewhat getting used to it hoping that it’s a very temporary thing,” Watson Coleman told The Post. “I don’t think I would start wearing a (hat) now, but I recognize that if someone else has the same issue and wants to, they should be able to.”

So sure… I’m as traditional as the next guy. But I ABSOLUTELY think the “no-hat” rule can be bent for religious and medical reasons.

I’m SURE some of you will disagree with me on this one.
