    Her credentials impress me not one bit. Her jurisprudence is all that matters.

    Joe the ragman can be seated on the court and do a fine job as long as he seeks liberty and justice as guided by the constitution.

    The Supreme Court has been making law and taking away our rights as citizens using sophisticated latin like “stare decisis” and such, applying them to support their arguments except when they don’t support their decided outcome they ignore them. They discern eminations of penumbra and redefine things declared to not be a tax to be a tax. They ruminate on the philosophies of what it means to define one’s meaning and ignore our law and traditions while mining law foreign to American jurisprudence to decide on their desired outcome. And sometimes they will. just. make. things. up.

    Out of thin air.

    These so called learn-ed folk have these fancy papers from schools that have what I call Prestige? The question mark is a permanent part of the word, because the so-called institutions they receive their credentials from don’t even know what the kid from Kindergarten Cop knows, so why should we believe they know right from wrong, up from down, shite from shinola holding a degree from any university that teaches that which is intuitively obvious to the entire Special Olympics soccer team to be the opposite? Sorry emporer, but you may want to cover your doodle before you go out and about the unsophisticated deplorables who can’t afford to ignore the true, right and good.

    Amy doesn’t need anything but a desire to judge fairly and rightly. That’s all she needs. And if she is never unsure, she can just look over Clarence Thomas’s shoulder and copy off of his paper.

      Well said.

      I recommend a very close and critical reading of: “The Vision of The Anointed” (1995), by Dr. Thomas Sowell.

      All who consider themselves as “Conservative” and/or “Libertarian” might do well to consider what Dr. Sowell has forecast for us, for our culture and for our society.

      If you do not like to actually “read books”…there are many YouTube videos available re: Dr. Thomas Sowell.

      Dr. Sowell’s book (requiring approximately 4.0 hours for even an average reader to fully digest), lays bare, and actually predicted…. what has now become of our U.S. Supreme Court.

      This all started in the very early 1950’s.

      The Supreme Court has devolved over the last 60-65 years into an unelected panel of Elitist “experts”, a kind of Progressive Super-Legislature.

          REVOLUTION 2020
          How did we get there – and how will it end?
          By Angelo Cordevilla
          Claremont Institute
          ************
          A rather lengthy article, but well worth reading. This is the very best article I have found thus far explaining what has happened to our Republic, and how it happened.
          The various post-election scenarios set forth by the author are frightening.

            Codevilla’s essay is a seriously sobering review of how the Ruling Class (actually far more than just the DemoCommunist Party) came to power in this country.

            He also points out and reasons why that, even today since President Trump was elected, they still are in control of most facets of our culture and have become even more powerful since President Trump took office.

            Codevilla then looks forward at what choices will exist for Deplorables in both possible 2020 election outcomes: Trump winning or Trump losing. It isn’t pretty either way. But Codevilla is indirectly suggesting that Deplorables will have to act, possibly violently, to try to regain whatever life we had up until very recently.

              Well I’m impressed by her credentials. And if she is an originalists to boot and a champion for ‘ordered liberty’ that is right turns on the separation of powers – she is going to be one heck of a force on the Court.

        The 14th amendment is where much of this started. Written so poorly and so broadly the supreme court has citied it for virtually all of the questionable rulings they’ve made.
        Can’t find it anywhere in the constition, just claim the 14th amendment for justification.

    Congratulations to Judge Barrett!

    She is a clear and bold manifestation of the President’s willingness to aggressively confront the traitors who seek to wreck our country.

    I anticipate that her confirmation hearings will be brutal, and I hope the voters are sickened and angered by the horrid treatment she is very likely to receive from the Dems and msm. Good people everywhere will be praying for her deliverance from evil.

    It was really nice to see that the late Justice Scalia’s wife was in the audience, along with one of his sons – as if President Trump is going out of his way to see to it that those who worked with Justice Scalia (as Amy Coney-Barrett did as a law clerk for Justice Scalia) are the very type of justices that President Trump is making sure to sit upon the bench;

    another nice thing is it appears ACB will be the anti-Ginsburg, if she is true to her word of simply ruling on the laws as written and not creating laws from the bench – very anti-Ginsburg.

    As long as her children and other family members aren’t damaged the way the Left went after Kavanaugh, causing hurt to his family, it will be fun to watch leftist heads explode.

    Have to add more popcorn to the shopping list.

    Good gravy. Remember this guy? So then why is he now saying this? I want to see real howls of execration from the left, which this is not. It would seem right out of the gate the Dems are confident a SCOTUS that includes ACB will hand them the election. Not a good sign.

    Got a bad feeling about this. She was excited to talk about how Ginsburg and Scalia always disagreed but remained friends. Hope she doesnt take a knee and expect us to still be friends.

    Yes, daunting. Indeed.

    I followed Jake’s story. Best I could, every day.. And now, Jake is gone. Ultimately, by his own hand.

    He was pursued, ostracized, isolated, criminalized and completely “doxed”. The Mob left him no chance of a fair trial, or some fair resolution. And he well knew that.

    This is the rule of the Mob. Not the rule of Law.

    This is the fate that awaits ALL of us.

      Buck up, Buttercup. Hope you are armed and have sufficient ammunition as it is almost impossible to find these days.

      We won’t be the first in our nation to have to fight for its principles……the Ruling Class despises us and they will not take defeat in November peacefully. But neither will we….

      Thomas Jefferson, in a 1787 writing to William Stephens Smith, the son-in-law of John Adams, about the new Constitution of which he just received a draft copy…

      What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure…
