Amy Coney Barrett

Why the Preemptive Attacks on Amy Coney Barrett?

David Catron, The American Spectator

President Trump would be wise to ignore the preemptive Borking to which Judge Barrett is being subjected and nominate her to replace Justice Kennedy this afternoon. This will force the Democrats to publicly slander a well-qualified female nominee just before the midterms, when many voters are deciding how to vote. And it will also force Democratic Senators like Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly, and Heidi Heitkamp to support her confirmation in an effort to save their Senate seats. Amy Coney Barrett will be the justice that keeps on giving.

The Irony of the Left’s Opposition to Barrett

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The left’s visceral opposition to Barrett as a possible Supreme Court nominee makes for a curious spectacle: liberals screaming at Senate Democrats to keep an opponent of the death penalty off the Supreme Court, while many conservatives urge Trump to put her on it. In another era, the sides would be reversed. The Democrats have gone so far to the left that they can’t even tolerate pro-lifers who oppose the death penalty.

Conservatives Demand McConnell Stop Stalling Trump Judicial Nominees

Through the Conservative Action Project, conservative movement leaders and activists call upon Mitch McConnell to IMMEDIATELY schedule committee and floor action on President Trump’s judicial nominees and to begin working a full week, EVERY week, until all nominations have been acted upon.

Dianne Feinstein and the Anti-Catholic Bigots

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

In defeat, one might have thought that the Dems would make more of an effort to conceal their anti-Catholic bigotry. But they haven’t. It was on full display this week, as they browbeat the mild-mannered federal appeals court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, whose Catholicism Democratic senators found very troubling. The inimitably bumptious Dianne Feinstein put their anti-Catholic bigotry in memorable form, starkly saying to Barrett: “When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you.”

Senator Dianne Feinstein’s Anti-Catholic Bigotry

Senator Feinstein’s anti-Catholic bigotry is so blatant one wonders if what’s next on her mind isn’t Nuremberg laws barring Catholics from the legal profession, teaching and medicine.
