McConnell Announces Full Senate Vote on Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Monday Oct. 26th…

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has announced the full senate vote for Supreme Court Nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, will take place next Monday October 26.  The nomination is expected to be voted out of the Senate Judiciary Committee this Thursday.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced Tuesday that the Senate will vote to confirm President Trump’s nominee Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday, Oct. 26.

With a 53-47 majority, and just two Republican senators opposed, Trump’s nominee is on a glide path to confirmation that will seal a conservative hold on the court for years to come.

Without the votes to stop Barrett’s ascent, Democrats have few options left. They are searching for two more GOP senators to break ranks and halt confirmation, but that seems unlikely. Never before as a court nominee been voted on so close to a presidential election.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer decried what he called the “farcical” process to “jam” through Trump’s choice, even as the coronavirus outbreak sidelined GOP senators. (more)

        Jeremiah 6: 16-19
        16 Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
        17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
        18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
        19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.

          I almost hit the “like” button, but it seemed odd to “like” a statement that speaks of God bringing evil upon a people. But God’s Word is always true and worthy to be “liked” even when it speaks of a coming judgement IF the people refuse to turn back to Him. I always love 2 Chronicles 7:14 but the whole Word of God is profitable for teaching or reproof (2 Tim 2:22). And we learn in Galatians 6:7 that God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. So even the verses that speak of God bringing or allowing evil to come upon a people that refuse to turn back to Him are valuable for us to understand.
          So, thank you figbugly, I liked your posting of Jeremiah 6:16-19. I am praying that we as a people will repent of our sins, walk the good way and hearken to the watchmen He sends to us.

          FDR also had a same-day confirmation in June of 1941. That was the last time a same day confirmation took place. That’s a total of six Supreme Court Justices nominated by five presidents with same day confirmations. It’s only within recent American history, that Supreme Court nominees were viewed through a political lens.

      Amen to that! As a Scalia acolyte, we can hope that she takes up his mantle and continues his fight to defend the Constitution. The Court is far better with her or someone similar. She will not be a Souter or a Roberts. She knows exactly what she’s getting into, and is prepared to defend liberty and freedom. Once the vote is counted, I for one will sleep better knowing that Roberts will be marginalized by her presence. It’s as big a win as PT could get for his first 4 years (3 SCOUTS appointments, unbelievable!).

And there are very rarely cases the Justices screw the pooch in from our view. It’s the best we can expect.

      with the right case… I think she does right with ACA and roe vs wade. but this imagines other justices remain consistent.

      the case i am looking forward to seeing is the Flynn case.

      a. time limits for judges to rule on motions to dismiss when the prosecutor has withdrawn and there exists no case.

      b. the constitutional legality of the secret fisc.

    I am all for this confirmation, and will be glad it turns the court toward Conservative, or rather toward the Constitution for it’s rulings, but Roberts is a problem. I’m not positive about how long the court would lean Constitutionally based, as we have some justices who might be heading toward retirement. Should that happen and (God forbid) Biden wins, the court could easily flip back liberal.

    I also am concerned about the left packing the court. I would put nothing past them in their quest for power. Should a leftist take over the country, they will keep it through any and all means they can.

    Barrett being placed on the COurt helps, but President Trump winning reelection is critical.
