President Trump Nominates Judge Amy Coney Barrett – A Strong Defender of the Constitution and Rule of Law – to the Supreme Court

Saturday, President Trump announced his nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, which includes portions of Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana, to be an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.  In making this nomination, the President has fully honored and complied with his responsibility and obligation under Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution.  It is equally incumbent upon the Senate to act promptly and honorably on this nomination.

Judge Barrett is a strong constitutional conservative with a stellar and consistent record of strictly applying the Constitution and the law in rendering her opinions on cases reaching the 7th Circuit.

The mother of seven children and a former law clerk to the late great jurist Justice Antonin Scalia, Judge Barrett, now 48, resides in Indiana and graduated from University of Notre Dame law school. In addition to her judgeship, she is a Notre Dame law professor. She was also a finalist for the Supreme Court spot that went to Brett Kavanaugh in 2018.

This appointment by President Trump is critically important to the stability of our constitutional republic because Judge Barrett will clearly follow and honor the Constitution and the law as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Moreover, the safeguards the Constitution provides against an overreaching federal government and the protection of our rights and civil liberties should be more strongly secured by Judge Barrett’s addition to the Supreme Court.  She will balance those in the judiciary who would erode and reinterpret the Constitution to increase federal government dominance and daily control over Americans by “redefining” our rights and liberty.

We commend President Trump for his quick and decisive action in making this strong nomination.

We don’t need another confirmation hearing like that of justice Kavanaugh. And we certainly don’t need another dog and pony show like that of the attorney general where questions were asked and speeches were given but no answers were allowed. Let’s get her confirmed, and not give the democrats a platform to drone on and on!! Republicans have control of senate, let’s use it and quickly!!

Exactly! Why on earth should any Republican in the Senate want to give the Democrats a public, televised forum to repeat the same sort of lies and insults that were hurled at Judge Kavanaugh over multiple days? Seriously! There is NOTHING in the advise and consent process that mandates the party in control of the Senate has to allow this disgraceful behavior. There is NOTHING in the constitution that says Graham can’t just order an up or down vote and skip the theater of the dog and pony show hearings. One day! McConnell could then just call a full floor vote and that’s it! Again, one day!

For those out there that think this will show the American people who the Democrats really are, I would say that the half of the country that is going to vote for Trump or Republicans in general already know who the Democrats are. For the Democrat voter base, they will do nothing but cheer every time a Democrat publicly insults and lies about Judge Barrett during the hearings. That is reality. No one on the Democrat side, at this point, is going to be swayed by yet another disgraceful display from the Congressional Democrats. Face reality folks. The half of the country that still votes Democrat is fully on board with their behavior and agenda.

So please give me one intelligent, constitutional reason why the Republicans even bother with anything but two votes. Remember, the whole world is watching and we don’t need to look like spineless fools captive to an insane group of socialist anarchists (the modern Democrat Party) to the rest of the world. We should be better than this.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
