  • Amy Coney Barrett

    She is the one who Trump named as his selection to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg after the latter's passing earlier this month. Still it requires Senate confirmation.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    According to Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham, they have the votes. I'm just wondering what theatricalities the Democrats have planned.

      Primarily because of rule changes pushed through by the Democrats when they controlled the Senate

        It'll be interesting to watch. From what I can tell, ACB is eminently qualified, was the top in her class, has been endorsed by both liberal and conservative law professors who taught her (including one liberal professor who Dems called as an expert witness in last January's Impeachment proceedings).

        It looks like so far the Dem attack on her will be somewhat two-pronged - attacks on her position on abortion, and attacks on her religion, with the latter being connected to the former, and also seemingly the more main focus thus far by democrats.

          And so it begins...

          Dana Houle, a Democrat activist who was once a chief of staff on Capitol Hill to a Democrat lawmaker, tweeted Friday night that he hopes Barrett is investigated over the children she and her husband adopted from Haiti. “I would love to know which adoption agency Amy Coney Barrett & her husband used to adopt the two children they brought here from Haiti,” Houle wrote.

          “So here’s a Q: Does the press even investigate details of Barrett’s adoptions from Haiti?” Houle wrote in a follow-up tweet. “Some adoptions from Haiti were legit. Many were sketchy as hell. And if the press learned they were unethical & maybe illegal adoptions, would they report it? Or not bc it involves her children”

          In a third follow-up tweet, Houle added: “Would it matter if her kids were scooped up by ultra-religious Americans, or Americans weren’t scrupulous intermediaries & the kids were taken when there was family in Haiti? I dunno. I think it does, but maybe it doesn’t, or shouldn’t.”

          According to his LinkedIn page, Houle is a former campaign manager to several top Democrats like former Rep. Paul Hodes (D-NH) and current Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT). He also was Hodes’ chief of staff in Congress. On his website, Houle describes himself as an effective Democrat operative who has taken out sitting Republicans.

          As usual, nothing specific, just a vague accusation suggesting that we should be suspicious of her just because.

            On his HBO show Bill Maher branded her as being a "[f-bomb] nut" and describing her as "Catholic. Really Catholic. I mean, really, really Catholic" and quickly descending into a lewd joke about Trump.

              Well they can't accuse her of gang rape - or can they?

                I wouldn't put anything past the Democrats.

                  Well, this should cause consternation among Democrats. It seems that one of the left leaning law professors who was tapped to testify on behalf of the Democrats during the impeachment circus has written a glowing editorial about Barrett. Noah Feldman says, "I know her to be a brilliant and conscientious lawyer who will analyze and decide cases in good faith, applying the jurisprudential principles to which she is committed. Those are the basic criteria for being a good justice. Barrett meets and exceeds them." He goes on to say that Barret's "combination of smart and nice will be scary for liberals".

                    I would question her catholicism only because they have a tendency to be left leaning. And what makes it worse, folks are mislead into believing they'll be conservative because of their supposed religious affiliation. I mean, look at Roberts; case in point.

                      President Trump has not announced his nomination yet she is the front runner but until he announces his choice this evening I will wait.

                        For instance she's stated that the core of Roe vs Wade likely won't change.

                          Point of information, Bill Maher was raised as a Catholic. He did not find out that his mother was Jewish until he was older.
