Hawley Warns Democrats A Religious
Litmus Test For SCOTUS Nominee Amy
Coney Barrett Is Unconstitutional

Original Article

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., sent a letter to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., urging him to pledge not to use “anti-Catholic, anti-Christian, anti-faith” interrogations in the upcoming confirmation hearing for President Trump’s SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett. “There is a long history of anti-Catholic hatred by some in this country, and a growing tide of anti-religious animus on the Left now, and I hope you and your colleagues will not play any further part in it,” Hawley wrote. “Already, members of your caucus have said that they will do this again—that the nominee’s religious views will be a prime focus,” Hawley added.

Comments:

How can the party of gazillion Kennedys, starting with JFK through murderous Teddy and on and on possibly object to a Catholic? Their Sotomayor has to be a Catholic. Kagan? Other justices? Biden? Pelosi? Does a Jew - Charles Schumer or Diane Feinstein or Richard Blumenthal - really want to charge into this minefield?

The Democrats will still do it because they worship at the altar of abortion. They leave a path of death, from all of the aborted babies, everywhere they go and with everything they touch.

LOL, Kennedys indeed. Stretch and SloJo are Catholics too. Libs are nothing if not illogical.

I remember the arguments that were used against JFK becoming President and they seem to be recycling the same bizarre logic. If you are Catholic and act in a way that is not approved by the Pope you will be excommunicated and lose your soul. Does anyone still think this way, even the Pope?

Democrats are anti God. They don’t want freedom of religion they want freedom from religion. They want to replace In God We Trust with in government and democrats we trust. Religion and God to them is like the sunlight to Count Dracula.

Religion, in any form except for Islam, teaches respect for your fellow human beings, virtue, responsibility, truth and respect for the law. Democrats lack any of those qualities, thus their hatred for someone of faith.

Yes, it is unconstitutional. I suspect that a brilliant mind like Judge Barrett will have thought up a nice reply line when the first "religious test" type of "question" (attack statement) comes up in the hearings. Probably something along the line of "I'm sure you don't intend for your question to stray into an unconstitutional religious test, so I'll just leave that one alone, and we can move on." Pleasant smile and bright blue eyes saying silently "Your not smart enough for this game, Senator".

#11, too nice. They aren't going to vote for her anyway so take a little slice when they veer into that arena: "I thought an elected senator would be aware of article vi, clause 3 of the constitution. Have you read that part of the constitution, Senator?" Either response they give they look like the ignorant dummy they are. And set themselves up for the slice.

Constitution my butt. All that has to be said is that if Judge Barret's Catholicism means she needs to withdraw from SCOTUS nomination does Joe Biden's (much pronounced) Catholicism means he must withdraw from his presidential candidacy nomination ? Take it or leave it Antifa.

In the coming hearings, the Senators Feinstein, Hirono, Harris, Blumenthal, and others, will declare with one voice that a Christian believer is unfit to serve on the Court. They will accuse her of lying under oath when she took her oath of office, since she serves a Higher Power. They will impose a religious test: you cannot be a believer and serve. And there will be endless attempts to ensnare her in a perjury trap. Her children will be attacked, both those she bore and those she adopted. She will be declared unfit because she is a mother. She will be declared racist because her two adopted children are from Haiti. She will be declared unacceptable because she accepts the Constitution of the United States (which is unconstitutional, according to that famed Scholar Barak Hussein Soetoro). And there will be surprise witnesses who will accuse her of some as yet unspecified deviltry. After all, Justice Kavanaugh did all kinds of things for which there was no evidence.

Katherine Rodriguez, a reporter for Breitbart News, joined Breitbart News Tonight host Jerome Hudson to discuss former Vice President Joe Biden and her new book, The Quotable Joe: Corn Pop, Dog-Faced Pony Soldiers, and Other Malarkey from America’s Most Embarrassing Candidate. The Quotable Joe is described as a “collection of the most racist statements, lies, made-up stories, and dumbfounding moments of Joe Biden’s entire career.” (Snip)(audio)Chapter titles from the book include Racial and Sexual Malapropisms, Lies and Flip-Flops, and Made-Up Stories. “He made a statement about Indian accents in Delaware to a voter,” Rodriguez said, highlighting a Biden gaffe that did not receive much coverage.

There was once a tradition of Democratic liberalism. But that wing of the Democratic Party no longer exists and died sometime in the 1990s. Old-style liberalism has been absorbed by Progressivism at best and unapologetic socialism at worst—in a journey on the supposedly predetermined arc of history that bends toward 1984. The new-old leftist aim is not to operate within either the existing parameters of the Constitution as written or the customs and traditions of America—a 150-year-long nine-justice Supreme Court, the Electoral College, a 50-state nation, a Senate filibuster, two senators per state, and a secure border. All are obstructions to the drive for power.

Once again the New York Times attempts to make an issue out of President Trump’s real estate holdings working as a tax shelter and reducing income taxes. In the article the Times completely obfuscates the way income taxes are strategically offset by depreciation, mortgage interest and the entire reason why real estate ownership is viewed as a business. John Carney writing for Breitbart gets it: […] So imagine our guy took out an $8 million mortgage at five percent, paying $2 million cash. Now he’s got to pay $400,000 in mortgage payments. He wants to make at least that much so he charges tenants an aggregate of $425,000, which after

Is anyone really surprised that Donald Trump’s tax affairs are opaque? Or that he is not as rich as he claims? Is it really all that horrifying that he has for years claimed business losses in order to offset his significant income tax liability? Does it appall us that the Trump family used a Delaware-based consulting group to pay themselves? Of course not. The New York Times’s big Trump tax files splash on Sunday is therefore something of a flop. It is well-timed — an election is fast-approaching and the story might give Biden a good attack line in the big TV debate on Tuesday night.

The release of a joint report by the Senate committees on homeland security and finance raised important questions about obviously unethical foreign profiteering by members of the Biden family. In particular, former Vice President Joe Biden’s ne’er-do-well son Hunter received a remarkable amount of money from highly suspect foreign entities, including ones controlled by the Chinese government. On at least one occasion, the elder Biden appears to have directly facilitated his son’s tawdry dealings. On another, the current Democratic presidential nominee ignored an obvious appearance of a conflict of interest that compromised the moral authority of U.S. diplomacy.

The New York Times is undoubtedly pleased that it published more than two decades’ worth of Donald Trump’s tax returns. The self-congratulations are premature. The Times’ article reveals that Trump was telling the truth all along about his audit. We can also see that Obama’s policies benefitted rich people. Finally, because the policies show how our complicated progressive tax system will always benefit rich people with good accountants, the Times unwittingly advanced the argument for a flat tax.
