Original Article

Posted By: Moritz55, 10/17/2020 9:50:27 PM

Here is the likely timetable for the prospective confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. As is custom, the committee is holding the nomination over for a week. The Senate Judiciary Committee will again meet to consider Barrett’s nomination at 1 pm ET on Thursday, Oct. 22. The committee will vote to send the nomination to the floor (technically the “calendar,” but that’s another story).

He forgot the dirty, indecent, slimy, anonymous charge that the Dems will throw out like a stink bomb at the last moment, and then demand a delay beyond the election.

FTA: Democrats could create some mischief at this stage by not having a quorum present or demanding a quorum be present -- but not helping constitute a quorum. Schumer plan.

After her interrogation by the Democrats, I think they'll have no choice but to confirm her because she makes him look like a bunch of idiotic losers. I don't think they want to drag this out.

I agree that there will be some last-minute BS "bombshell" (take your pick of what kind), followed by Dem demands for an FBI investigation of ACB's "perjury" or whatever. It's what these people do.

What happens if the Dems don't show up to vote? Will they go ahead without them? If so, would they vote be enforceable?

Winners and losers at final presidential debate – What the Trump, Biden scorecard looks like now 1 reply

“All talk and no action.” With those few words, President Trump dismissed former Vice President Joe Biden and his vacuous plans for solving criminal injustice, climate change, immigration and most of all, the coronavirus. Rightly so. With only 11 days until the election, the president and his Democratic rival squared off once again. The setup was different, with mute buttons that prevented the unchecked interruptions that wrecked their first encounter.

Not that I don't think he'll be excellent.

"Health care is literally before the court." “Trump and the Republicans led by Mitch McConnell have been trying to get rid of health care for years ever since President Obama passed the Affordable Care Act,” she continued.

(Biden himself called a “lid” on Monday, lasting throughout the week until Thursday’s debate.) Obama repeated many false claims familiar from Biden’s own stump speech, including the “suckers and losers” hoax: Just like when Russia puts bounties on the heads of our soldiers in Afghanistan [sic], the commander-in-chief cannot be missing in action.
