Amy Coney Barrett will praise her mentor, the late Justice Antonin Scalia, and tell senators courts 'should not try' to make policy during her opening statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee.A transcript of the remarks Barrett intends to deliver the first day of her confirmation hearing on Monday was released to the media on Sunday. Barrett, 48, will speak to the Republican-led panel about how Scalia, whom she clerked for after law school, shaped not only her philosophies about the law, but also about family.'Justice Scalia taught me more than just law,' her statement reads. 'He was devoted to his family,

Graham is going to show us what he is made of and I pray he can reign the demented democrats in. Amy Coney Barrett is extremely qualified and so very impressive but the democrats may do what they always do. However, they also may have given up on harassing her because they believe they can cheat and win the election and then pack the Court. Let them enjoy this irresponsible fantasy. The American people are sickened by them. They are fed up with their lies and violence and want nothing to do with their anti-American socialism. We cannot allow evil to prosper and in order to prevent that, we must go to the polls in numbers never before seen. Confirm Judge Barrett and re-elect the President and we will be on the right path. Drive the democrats out of the political square. It is the only way to save the country.

The pictures and "Handmaid" meme is more dem theater of the absurd. "Handmaid's Tale protesters descend on Capitol Hill" is the headline and half the pictures are of the protest with the eye popping RED of the costumes but there is no coverage of the event in the text of the article. One protestor holds a sign that says "Vote while you still can", a extremely ridiculous sentiment. "'She has proven a mom really can do anything,' Sen Joni Ernst " Yes, which puts a mockery to the dems show. "But courts are not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in our public life." THIS is a key awareness that is an anathema to the power grasping dems. The idea that government has assigned limits cannot be allowed. "HER BELIEF that policy decisions should be left up to political branches of government - Congress and the presidency" No, it's not a "belief". It's enshrined in the Constitution that laws originate in Congress and are approved by the President. It's amazing that Congress has allowed the power grab by the Courts that has happened. Let's get this confirmation DONE!

The Handmaid's Tale is a dystopian novel by Canadian author Margaret Atwood, published in 1985 -- 35 years ago. Judge Amy Coney Barrett was 13 years old at that time. Claiming that a 13 year old girl was the inspiration for this book is absurd! Yet that is the claim of her slanderers. Yet the the Democrats and MSM are perpetuating this slander. The facts reveal that this is a pack of lies.

I'm not sure what the protestors are doing outside the Capitol (I understand their attendance inside the hearing room is prohibited due to COVID precautions), but I heard a couple of the Senators at lunch time. Senator Horizontal Harris, speaking via telephonic link from somewhere (probably a seedy hotel room), gave a diatribe that lasted longer than her debate performance with about the same effect. Grabbed a picture of some sad, ill kid, that needs a couple MRI's every year and treatment for a congenital heart defect who (according to Sen. Heels-Up) would be dead except for the grand gift of Emperor Obama the First, Obamacare, and that Judge Barrett, will immediately upon her swearing in, make it illegal for the poor little girl to live and force her poor mother to live with the heartbreak of psorasis or something like that.

#5, your might think Senator Graham isn't doing enough, but he's doing enough so that the Dems have raised more than 54 MILLION dollars to defeat him. So far, he has done what he has said he would do. Perhaps he hasn't moved fast enough (i think this), I don't know if i'm allowed to do this, but if you can donate even a small amount it will help Graham's campaign. I'm going to send to all the Senators and certain Reps who are on the razor's edge. Our lives depend on NOT losing every Branch of Government to these leftists who intend to finish the Obama "fundamental transformation", which means destroying the FOUNDATIONs of our Republic --and that's the END. Can't leave anything to chance. Dems themselves told us not to trust them! The red dress histrionics will dry up and crumble.

Trump did not say he had tested negative for the virus the day of the debate. “They do a lot of testing at the White House.

It was looking like another Joe Biden town hall filled with softball questions on Thursday night as the Democratic nominee went head-to-head with President Trump in competing prime-time town halls. The 77-year-old former veep was lobbed a series of easy questions to star off the ABC News town hall in Philadelphia, Pa. by audience members mixed between Democrats and Republicans who voted for Trump in 2016. Biden was asked whether he would take a coronavirus vaccine, and how he would reduce taxes for the middle class, but the elephant in the room, the Post’s bombshell reporting on Hunter Biden’s business dealings overseas, went unmentioned in the first 40 minutes

The two will take questions in different cities on different networks: Trump on NBC from Miami, Biden on ABC from Philadelphia. Trump backed out of plans for the presidential faceoff originally scheduled for the evening after debate organizers said it would be held virtually following Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis.

Several members of the Biden’s clan, including his brother James Biden, his sister-in-law Sara, and his son Hunter, landed lucrative positions or contracts with foreign countries while Joe Biden was a U.S. senator as well as when he served as vice president.

Almost as one, they have rushed to Twitter to hyperventilate about handmaidens and slavery, all of it nonsense.

Recently, my pastor noted during his homily that it was Respect Life week. He mentioned that President Trump had signed an executive order to protect babies born alive. The order reads: "Every infant born alive, no matter the circumstances of his or her birth, has the same dignity and the same rights as every other individual and is entitled to the same protections under federal law.” I wasn’t sure why he issued this order because President George Bush had signed into law H.R.2175 - Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002.
