President Trump has officially nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett as the next Justice of the Supreme Court.

https://video.foxnews.com/v/6194857881001#sp=show-clips

I thought Barrett came across very well. Brilliant, humble, committed to our country, our Constitution, her faith, and her family. And attractive, too. It will be a tough fight, but it shouldn't be. A very impressive nominee

She has more integrity in one of her finger nails than RBG had in her whole generation....Just night and day...

Her confirmation hearings open tomorrow. Her opening statement is out. It includes the following:

Quote
urts have a vital responsibility to enforce the rule of law, which is critical to a free society. But courts are not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in our public life. The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches elected by and accountable to the People. The public should not expect courts to do so, and courts should not try.

That is the approach I have strived to follow as a judge on the Seventh Circuit. In every case, I have carefully considered the arguments presented by the parties, discussed the issues with my colleagues on the court, and done my utmost to reach the result required by the law, whatever my own preferences might be. I try to remain mindful that, while my court decides thousands of cases a year, each case is the most important one to the parties involved. After all, cases are not like statutes,which are often named for their authors. Cases are named for the parties who stand to gain or lose in the real world, often through their liberty or livelihood.


You can read the full statement here:

The left is already in a tizzy. Look at their open-minded, tolerant reactions:

Quote
"She has under 3 years experience as a judge. Couldn't find someone with more experience? I wouldn't trust someone to remodel my kitchen with less than 3 years experience," one person said.
"Except apparently for more than reasonable gun laws like Illinois' that barred felons from owning guns which she voted to overturn. What an insidious, hypocrite Barrett is," another person said.
"Since Barrett, an extremist, is insisting on making this about her children, Americans have the right to hear whether she thinks one of her daughters should have the legal right to terminate a pregnancy or to marry a woman," another person said.
"Wow she's really opening her argument with a swipe at gay marriage. She's gonna try to overturn gay rights and certainly prevent any other rights like gay adoption be stopped," one person claimed.
"This argument is such garbage. The ACA is the law of the land, voted on by the house and senate then signed into law by the president. They can't overturn it legislatively so they are turning to their activist judges to do so. Reporters should explain this to people," another person said.
"Shorter ACB: better get abortion and gay marriage into law quick or else I'm taking them away as soon as I can," another person said.
"Doing the same thing over and over again is the definition of insanity. Each conservative nominee says this, and then gets on the Court and implements the will of the GOP. An exception here or there, but they ratify the wishes of the GOP, ignoring precedent wherever it suits," another person said.
"this is probably the one and only time i want misogyny to do it's thing and let this woman f***ing fail," one person responded.


Typical. This is who they really are.

Two comments.
1.Quoting from The Blaze is like quoting from qAnon. Fantasy mixed with conspiracy.
2. martin, as usual, slurs on automatic. The reason that I attacked him as a representation of all that is un-American and UnChristian was because he is, by his own statements. "Run them out, et al. KKK anyone?
And because his definition of "lowlife" and other insults is anyone who is consistent in their beliefs and action.
note his slur about Ginsberg.
I was asked by a former poster as to why I still posted here. "They're all a bunch of fascists." I am not Christian, but I do have probably vain hopes for redemption.
Also I glance and find it difficult not to vent.

That former poster sounds like an idiot.

You know nothing about The Blaze, but feel the need to attack it.

Judge Barrett was brilliant. She ran rings around the Senators. She was smarter than anyone in that committee room, with teh possible exception of Senator Cruz (and maybe Senator Lee.)

She'll be Justice Barrett within the week, and she'll be a terrific Supreme Court Justice.
