Ruth Bader Blackout



Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been missing from the Supreme Court for over a month and now we find out that the premiere news networks in the country have been told to keep any and all Intel related to Ginsburg’s health out of the news.

Media contacts at ABC News and the Washington Post report that Ginsburg health stories have been put on a no-fly list by editors. And at least one FOX News journalist privately asserts that the network is not interested in a Ginsburg Watch feature either.

There have been NO reports about Ginsburg’s health in the mainstream media for over a week, even though she was a no show for Trump’s State of the Union Address.

Not one single story from Big LEFT Media. It’s clear they have their orders from their Democratic overlords. (Only the Daily Caller had the stones to question Ginsburg’s absence.)

No one in the media is camped out at Ginsburg’s house either. That’s another no-fly zone for the elite media. A news BLACKOUT.

“Are you crazy?” one WaPo staffer said regarding covering the national concern about Ginsburg’s absence. “That’s not something I would even pitch.”

Instead, the Washington Post put its patented dishonest spin on the growing Ginsburg saga. The deep-state WaPo, owned by the magnate Jeff Bezos and his $600 million data contract with the CIA, is always eager to help label Common-Sense Americans as conspiracy theorists. A reporter said Ginsburg was spotted in public last week at a concert, based on phone calls he received from big-wig Dems saying she was at the event.

He declared: “It’s true, RGB lives and looks fabulous!”

No one at the Post actually saw her and no pictures or video exist of her at the event. And the Post reporter, of course, never left his desk. Sounds legit.

3. This is serious.

Liberals who like abortions are on suicide watch right now. The media MUST hide the truth in order to SAVE it.

9. All the same "event" and not one picture?

The one woman everyone in DC is looking for and not one camera phone got a picture of her "looking great" at this event? Not even a report of individuals who saw or spoke to her?

Excuse us if these stories are covered in hair.

11. The normal Washington routine

With Senators, Representatives, Cabinet members, the Justices and of course the President and Vice President is to slip them in quietly just as the performance is beginning and then slip them out just as it is ending for purposes of security.

10. Justice Ginsburg illness casts spotlight on long-term court absences

From PBS--2/13/19 — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has missed a month of Supreme Court arguments as she recovers from lung cancer surgery. But she’s not the first justice to be away for a while and her absence hardly compares with those of some of her predecessors.

The day before the Supreme Court began its term in October 1949, Justice William Douglas broke 14 ribs and suffered a punctured lung when he was thrown from his horse on a trail in the Cascade Mountains in Washington. He didn’t return to the bench for nearly a half year, and his long recovery caused delays in several cases, including challenges to segregation.

Like much of what goes on away from public view at the Supreme Court, how the justices deal with a colleague’s absence can be opaque. The individual justice decides whether to rule on cases even if he or she has missed arguments. Indeed, Chief Justice John Roberts already has announced that Ginsburg is participating in the cases she missed.

And only the justice can decide when an injury or illness is so severe that retirement is the only option. A quarter century after his riding accident, Douglas suffered a serious stroke, but refused to retire for months. His weakened state caused a backlog in the court’s work and the other justices refused to issues decisions in cases where Douglas had provided the fifth, majority-making vote.

“There aren’t any rules about this and so much is left to the individual justice,” said Erwin Chemerinsky, who argued a case during Ginsburg’s absence.

The 85-year-old Ginsburg could be back on the bench when the court next meets on Tuesday, and even as she has been away, she has not missed any votes.

In some state court systems, including California, the highest court can essentially borrow a judge from a lower court to temporarily replace an absent member, said Chemerinsky, the dean of the law school at the University of California, Berkeley.

The Supreme Court has no similar arrangement. The nine justices are there for as long as they wish, and neither a retired justice nor an appellate judge can fill a void.

The 25th Amendment to the Constitution sets out what happens if a president is incapacitated, but refuses to relinquish power. In Congress, the absence of a single lawmaker is not likely to make a lasting difference, while the absence of a single justice on the nine-member court can be significant. Also, elected officials have terms of office that last six years at most, in the case of senators.

The most recent example of a justice missing substantial time was in 2004 and 2005, when Chief Justice William Rehnquist was suffering from thyroid cancer and was not on the bench for 44 arguments over five months. Justice John Paul Stevens, the longest-serving justice at the time, presided when Rehnquist was away, except for the day in late February 2005 when Stevens’ flight from Florida was canceled and Justice Sandra Day O’Connor ran the show.

Still, Rehnquist voted in most of the cases for which he did not attend the arguments. He returned to the court in late March and made it through the end of the court’s term in late June before dying on Sept. 3 at the age of 80.

Douglas’ accident occurred in steep terrain more than a mile above sea level, just after he stopped to adjust the girth on his horse’s saddle. He fell an estimated 50 feet down a rocky hillside where his boyhood friend and riding partner, Elon Gilbert, found him lying on a ledge, according to The Associated Press’ report from the time.

Douglas, then 50, was a noted outdoorsman who hiked and rode extensively. While he recuperated, he was photographed in his hospital bed and then astride a horse when he took his first ride after the accident.

There’s a suggestion in news accounts that the other justices were irritated by the length of his absence. He came back to the court in time to hear Thurgood Marshall argue that Texas’ refusal to accommodate a black student in its whites-only law school was unconstitutional. Marshall, then the nation’s most prominent civil rights lawyer, prevailed in a unanimous decision.

Douglas already had become the court’s longest-serving justice by the time of his stroke on the last day of 1974. Though unable to walk and generally weakened by the stroke, Douglas refused to retire. Because of his illness, the court ordered a new round of arguments in eight cases in the spring of 1975, an unusually large number.

“They agreed to take away his vote because they thought he was incompetent,” historian David Garrow said.

When the new term began that October, Douglas was still on the court. At arguments, Douglas “had moments of lucidity and energy followed by near incoherence and sleep,” authors Bob Woodward and Scott Armstrong wrote in “The Brethren,” their book about the court.

By November, Douglas had had enough and reluctantly submitted his resignation after more than 36 years as a justice.
