Amy Coney Barrett’s Confirmation Finally Gives America a Reliable Constitutionalist Majority

It all went exactly according to plan. The senators all got their allotted time to pontificate and whine on the Senate floor; Mitch McConnell was able to sum everything up, excoriating the Democrats for their pathetic petulance and rank hypocrisy; 52 Republican senators did the right thing and voted to confirm the new Supreme Court Justice; 47 Democrats were joined by despicable RINO Susan Collins in voting against her; and finally, exactly one month to the day after she was nominated and eight days before Election Day 2020, Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in as the 115th associate justice to the U.S. Supreme Court by fellow Justice Clarence Thomas.

Happy Birthday, Hillary Clinton!

You might assume I’m being facetious with that last comment, but if you don’t think President Trump insisted on swearing ACB in late last night instead of waiting to do it at a more reasonable hour today, you don’t understand Donald Trump. He fully understood the wonderful confluence of events he helped to create here.

Thus, a new day in America dawns with a reliable 5-4 constitutionalist majority on the Supreme Court that would be 6-3 were Chief Justice John Roberts not so obviously compromised and siding more and more frequently with the Court’s three remaining leftist activists.

But hey, 5-4 is all we need to secure the liberties guaranteed us under the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Our new Justice will be on the job today, probably showing up for work as I write this piece, and will have the ability to weigh in on every case the Court sees from here on out. Given what we know will be a massive effort by the Democrats to steal this election during the days and weeks after November 3, the presence of a 5th firmly constitutionalist justice is quite reassuring.

Regardless of how this election turns out – and signs continue to be that it will turn out well for President Trump – America is now blessed with the fact that Donald John Trump has appointed fully 1/3rd of the current Supreme Court roster and stands to very likely appoint at least two more during his second term. No president in American history has kept his promises in the way this President has done, and his promise to appoint strict constructionist conservative judges is chief among them.

In addition to his three sterling appointments to the Supreme Court, President Trump has now appointed and had confirmed a whopping 162 federal district court judges and 53 to the various U.S. courts of appeals. Even better, he currently has 53 nominees before the Senate, and 2 additional court of appeals openings left to fill before the end of the year.

What he and Mitch McConnell have achieved – together with Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham, who have chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee over the past four years – has been truly epic, a focus on filling vacant judgeships that is unprecedented in its successful execution. It is a legacy that will endure for decades. It is a stunning, consequential achievement.

We are seeing its fruits in the lead up to this election, with decision after decision by the federal courts to deny depraved Democrats in their crass efforts to extend vote-counting by days and weeks in various states so that their operatives can invent enough fraudulent votes to steal the presidency. Again yesterday, the Supreme Court denied an attempt by Democrats in Wisconsin to be able to “count” mail-in ballots that are postmarked up to 6 days after Election Day, an obvious attempt to engage in massive voter fraud.

In these decisions and so many others we see just how crucial Trump’s win in 2016 over the Pantsuit Princess truly was for our nation. Elections have consequences and no presidential election in our history has been more consequential than the last one.

Well, except maybe for this current one, that is. If we wish to preserve all of the incredible array of Trump accomplishments in office, he simply must win a second term in office given that Biden/Harris Harris/Biden have promised to move the clock back to 2016 in so many ways.

Which brings us right back to how important it was to get Amy Coney Barrett ensconced and working on the Supreme Court this week, where she can join four other reliable constitutionalist justices serving as a bulwark against the most extreme excesses of this communist Democrat Party and the ongoing betrayals by Chief Justice Roberts.

God Bless Donald Trump for her nomination and the 52 members of the U.S. Senate for confirming her.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Voter Fraud is Right at the Top of Joe Biden’s Addled Mind

On Saturday, President Donald Trump held rallies before massive audiences in the states of Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin, speaking to more than 60,000 Americans in the process. It was his busiest day thus far during the general election campaign, and if anything this amazing man appeared to display more energy during his final stop in Wisconsin than at any of the earlier events. He literally appears to somehow feed off of the energy of these huge crowds.

On the same day, Joe Biden held a rally before maybe 100 parked cars in Pennsylvania, at one point referring to Pennsylvanians who support President Trump as a bunch of “chumps,” thus spawning the soon-to-be-trending Twitter hashtag, “#ChumpsforTrump”. Hilarious.

After gratuitously insulting half the population of this election’s key state, Biden spent the remainder of his time yelling at the kids to get off his lawn, and then wandered aimlessly around the stage looking for his tapioca pudding while his wife Jill rambled on about pretty much nothing:

Next, obviously exhausted from his grueling one-rally schedule, Biden returned to his basement and, before being hooked back up to his handy IV, bragged to a call to big donors that “We have put together…the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics”.

No, I’m not kidding. Take a look:

Hey, look, at least he’s honest, right? His elder-abusing handlers shrugged it away as just another slip of the famous Biden tongue, but in reality it just shows what is at the top of the dementia-riddled brain. As he and his handlers come increasingly to the realization that their coordinated plan with the corrupt national news media to suppress Trump turnout with an unending series of fake polls showing Biden with huge leads is not bearing its intended fruit, the importance of that “extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization” in key swing states becomes elevated.

So, of course that is what was right at the top of his creepy old mind.

In other news, disgusting, formerly-funny person Chelsea Handler proved yet again that the Hollywood elite is chock full of white racist leftists, explaining her recent Twitter-shaming of rapper 50 Cent by telling a head-nodding Jimmy fallon that “I had to remind him that he is a black person” after the rapper had announced he would be voting for President Trump.

From a story at Fox News:

Chelsea Handler offered an explanation as to why she publicly scolded her ex-boyfriend 50 Cent for supporting President Trump during her Friday night appearance on “The Tonight Show.”

The comedian had been feuding with 50 Cent — born Curtis James Jackson III — since Monday when he shared an image from a news broadcast on Instagram that depicted the rates at which certain places would be taxed under Joe Biden’s plan. The broadcast highlighted New York state (58%) and New York City (62%).

“WHAT THE F–K! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT,” wrote Jackson in the caption. “F–K NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f–king mind.”

Handler insisted the 62 percent tax hike “isn’t a plan” under Joe Biden, calling it a “lie” during her interview with “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon.

50 CENT DOUBLES DOWN ON OPPOSITION TO JOE BIDEN’S TAX PLAN: ‘I DON’T WANT TO BE 20CENT’

“So he doesn’t want to pay 62 percent in taxes because he doesn’t want to go from ’50 Cent’ to ’20 Cent’ and I had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook,“ Handler said.

[End]

Again, Hollywood is filled to the gills with white racist leftists like Ms. Handler, which is – other than all the rampant pedophilia that dominates the film industry – pretty much all we need to know about Hollywood.

In other disgusting woman-related news… – Alaska RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski obviously had a come to Jesus meeting on Saturday. No, the meeting was not actually with the real Jesus, but with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who obviously informed her that if she wanted to preserve her political career – and her seat as Chairman of the Senate Energy Committee – she might want to get in line on the Amy Coney Barrett nomination to the Supreme Court.

Thus it was that Sen. Murkowski announced late Saturday that, hey, after further consideration, she will be voting for Judge Barrett after weeks of making noise about betraying her party one more time:

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said on Saturday that she will vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday, despite objections to taking up the nomination before the Nov. 3 election.

“I have no doubt about her intellect. I have no doubt about Judge Barrett’s judicial temperament. I have no doubt about her capability to do the job. … I have concluded that she is the sort of person we want on the Supreme Court,” Murkowski said from the Senate floor.

Murkowski, the only GOP senator to oppose then-nominee Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, was one of the last senators whose vote was in doubt.

[End]

Cocaine Mitch has obviously had his fill of Lisa Murkowski’s self-serving antics.

Judge Barrett will be confirmed by the full senate on Monday and no-doubt sworn into office later this week.

God Bless America.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Pelosi Toadies for Iran and the Media Toadying for Biden is Nothing New

Here is the genius of President Donald Trump and his administration: They now have the Democrats sticking up for Iran. – No kidding, take a look at what San Fran Nan had to say yesterday in response to the joint press conference by DNI John Ratcliffe and worthless FBI Director Christopher Wray that both Iran and Russia are trying to interfere in this election:

“Iran is a bad actor, but in no way equivalent [to Russia].”

How pathetically un-American is that? But that is where the Democrats feel they need to go in order to keep pushing their “Russia Russia Russia” attack narrative against the President of the United States.

Genius.

And speaking of pathetic Democrats… – In case you missed it due to the media blackout, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett yesterday in a vote that was both along party lines and unanimous. That’s because the petulant Democrat members of the committee all boycotted the committee meeting.

It just don’t get any more pathetic than that, folks.

And now, a bit of wonderful trivia from our “HO-LEE-CRAP” file… – Rasmussen reports tweets out the fact that Black voters’ approval of President Trump rose to…wait for it… 46%[!!!!] in its latest daily survey:

My goodness. Obviously, job approval doesn’t necessarily translate into outright votes, but if the President’s share of the Black vote amounts to 1/3rd of that in this election, it will produce an unprecedented Red Wave election on November 3.

Hey, maybe this has something to do with it. – The Washington Examiner reports this morning that the rate of imprisonment for the Black community under Donald Trump’s presidency is the lowest it has been in 31 years. Equally as compelling, the rate of Hispanic incarceration is down by 24%.

Here’s an excerpt from that story:

America’s imprisonment rate has dropped to its lowest level since 1995, led by a dive in the percentage of blacks and Hispanics sent to jail during the Trump administration, according to a new Justice tally.

For minorities, the focus of President Trump’s First Step Act prison and criminal reform plan, the rate is the lowest in years.

For blacks, the imprisonment rate in state and federal prisons is the lowest in 31 years and for Hispanics it is down 24%.

“Across the decade from 2009 to 2019, the imprisonment rate fell 29% among black residents, 24% among Hispanic residents and 12% among white residents. In 2019, the imprisonment rate of black residents was the lowest it has been in 30 years, since 1989,” said the report.

Screen Shot 2020-10-23 at 8.10.45 AM.png

Bureau of Justice Statistics

 

Explaining the rate, Justice said, “At year-end 2019, there were 1,096 sentenced black prisoners per 100,000 black residents, 525 sentenced Hispanic prisoners per 100,000 Hispanic residents and 214 sentenced white prisoners per 100,000 white residents in the U.S. Among sentenced state prisoners at year-end 2018 (the most recent data available), a larger percentage of black (62%) and Hispanic (62%) prisoners than white prisoners (48%) were serving time for a violent offense.”

[End]

Oh. That’s some news you will never, never, ever see reported on CNN or MSNBC.

What if you give a press conference and the “press” refuses to show? – Former Hunter Biden/Joe Biden “business” partner Tony Bobulinski found out the hard way when he held a presser right before last night’s debate. Very predictably, almost nobody other than OANN and Fox News showed up.

Here is Ted Cruz excoriating the corrupt news media for its latest bit of malfeasance:

“It’s part of a pattern that we saw last week when the New York Post broke this story, and Big Tech – Twitter and Facebook – censored it, and essentially determined that the American people could not even hear the facts. I think the degree to which the media and Big Tech are shilling for Joe Biden, are protecting him, are covering him up and not even asking these questions, I think it’s really shameful.”

Yep, it really is, Senator.

But, while this current episode of the media shilling for the Democrats seems fresh and new to us in real-time, we should all remember that this really is not new behavior by our corrupt, worthless national news media. They’ve been doing this stuff for Democrats forever.

Go back to October 1919, and Woodrow Wilson’s stroke that left him incapacitated. Wilson’s wife essentially ran the government from then all the way through early 1921, and the pubic didn’t find out the truth for decades. Same with Franklin Roosevelt and his wheelchair. The media covered up that disability for decades. Same with John F. Kennedy’s massive drug abuse and affairs with the girlfriends of mob bosses and Russian spies, not to mention Marilyn Monroe. We didn’t find out about any of that stuff until 20-30 years later.

Remember how the Washington Post and Newsweek sat on the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky story for months, and would have buried it altogether were it not for the fact that Matt Drudge decided to run with it on his then-fledgling website. And let’s not forget the solid wall of Omerta the media put up on behalf of the utterly despicable John Edwards and his fathering of an illegitimate child during the early phase 2008 presidential campaign.

This has been going on forever, folks. Our national news media has been rank, smelly, lying garbage for decades. It just seems new now because the fresh layer of rank, smelly garbage consisting of Twitter and Facebook has been layered over the top of it.

Look who thought President Trump won the debate last night:

Megyn Kelly is right: Trump won the debate handily. I explain my reasoning fully in another piece this morning. Go read it. Now.

Mazie Hirono May Have Tipped the Coming Democrat Smear of Amy Coney Barrett

This is a serious question: How many Democrat members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have an IQ that is lower than the thermostat setting in the Senate hearing room? You can start with Mazie Hirono and Sheldon Whitehouse and go from there.

During yesterday’s hearing, you really could not help but wonder if Chuck Schumer simply arrayed his Democrat caucus members from lowest IQ to highest and then selected the 9 at the bottom of the list to sit on this key committee. I know from experience that members of congress are not especially intelligent as a class (though they are incredibly cunning as a class), but what the Democrats put on display on Wednesday was truly an embarrassment to the Senate as an institution.

Sheldon Whitehouse spent his entire 30 minutes of time going through a bizarre conspiracy theory about how “dark money” from the Koch Brothers somehow led directly to Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination. It was a true tour de force in mindless stupidity.

Kamala Harris used almost all of her time to make a campaign speech read from notes prepared by her staff. Because of course she did. Cory Booker went through a series of questions so irrelevant and transparently leading that had Barrett using her “mom patiently dealing with an irrational child” face and voice out of pity.

Geriatric senators Dianne Feinstein and Patrick Leahy and Richard Blumenthal each supplied 30-minute commercials for the pressing need for congressional term limits, and Amy Klobuchar looked like she needed a binder to throw at a staffer every time Judge Barrett embarrassed her with a calm and perfectly reasoned answer to her idiotic inquiries.

Then there was Crazy Mazie Hirono, the junior senator from Hawaii. This execrable, malignant wretch showed up to the hearing with a list of questions that her staff had written for her and that she had obviously not even bothered to read prior to the hearing beginning. Several of the questions referenced cases and decisions Judge Amy Coney Barrett had made in the past, and it was painfully obvious Hirono had no clue what any of them were.

But the moment everyone should view and keep in the back of our minds from Hirono’s 30 minutes was this one:

“[S]ince you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?” A seemingly random question, designed to be explosive and cause damage to Judge Barrett’s reputation simply by being asked and then endlessly repeated across Twitter and other social media. At least, that is how it is being covered by the news media.

But those who have witnessed how the Democrats inevitably try to mount a heinous smear against any Republican Supreme Court nominee might have reacted by filing this moment away as a clue to what the nature of their coming smear of Judge Barrett might look like. Everyone should remember that Brett Kavanaugh was asked a series of loaded questions about his behavior in his youth during his committee hearings as well, but the actual smear job by Christine Blasey Ford was only brought to the public’s attention during the weekend after the hearing had concluded, and he seemed to be on a smooth path to confirmation.

The smearing of Clarence Thomas also followed a similar pattern and timeline.

Can anyone doubt that the same Democrats who paid Ford and several other women to hurl slanderous allegations at Justice Kavanaugh would dig up acquaintances and former co-workers of Judge Barrett to claim she had at some distant point in the past made improper sexual advances towards them? Of course they would do exactly that.

When these completely unnecessary and counterproductive hearings come to a merciful conclusion on Thursday, Judge Barrett and her unassailable character and record will appear to be on a smooth path to confirmation. The Democrats will have failed to lay a glove on her and Mitch McConnell will have either 51 or 52 votes to get the job done.

But then the weekend will come and America will find out then if these depraved and despicable Democrats are willing to mount the same sort of smear on a supremely qualified woman that they mounted against Justice Kavanaugh. If they are, it’s a pretty safe bet that we will be able to look back and see that Crazy Mazie was setting the table for it.

Get ready.

Cancel the Amy Coney Barrett Hearings, Now

Just one more reason why these hearings should not be held. – Well, two reasons, actually, that the Democrats in the Senate provided to Mitch McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham on Monday. Two glaring reasons why the Judiciary Committee hearings on the Amy Coney Barrett nomination should be cancelled now, today, and the nomination should immediately be taken to the Senate floor for an up-or-down vote.

Reason #1 was provided by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who told fawning fake reporters that he and his fellow Democrats would boycott any votes in committee or on the floor related to the nomination. Ok, well, given that, what’s the point of hearings? If every member of the minority party has made up his or her mind on the nomination and will not even show up to vote on it, why allow this farce to go on?

As I’ve pointed out before, there is no requirement for the Judiciary Committee to hold these hearings. They are a matter of Senate process, not constitutional law. In the past, the point of holding such hearings was to vet the nominee and allow the committee to render a studied judgment on his or her qualifications for the job. The point of that judgment was so that the Committee as a whole could issue a recommendation to the full Senate on whether or not to confirm the nominee. Given that not a single member of the committee – Republican or Democrat – has an open mind on the incredibly well-qualified nominee, there is no point to holding these hearings.

Besides, Judge Barrett was just vetted for her seat on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals three short years ago, and was confirmed on a bipartisan vote. How much more does this committee need to know?

This takes us to Reason #2: The Democrats made a strategic decision at Monday’s hearing to simply turn it into a campaign event revolving around the Affordable Care Act, aka, Obamacare. Every Democrat on the Committee used their 10 minute opening statements as a commercial for the ACA and why they think it should be retained. Every one of them read comments written for them by some staffer, all based on the same ACA-centered talking points. Only a handful even bothered to discuss the nomination and Judge Barrett’s qualifications in any real way.

It’s a campaign event, not a hearing. They’re focusing on the ACA instead of their real driving issue – abortion on demand, including infanticide after birth – because Obamacare polls more favorably for them than abortion does. It really is that simple.

Thus, lacking any cogent, legitimate arguments why Judge Barrett should not be confirmed, they stage a campaign rally and then promise to take their ball and go home like that pathetic little kid who lived down the street from you when you were in second grade.

McConnell and Graham should take this childish behavior by their “friends” on the other side as an opportunity to invite them all to go home. If they wish to stage campaign events related to Obamacare, then they should pay for them from their own campaign funds. There is no valid reason for Senate Republicans to enable them and allow them to conduct this joint rally on government time.

This farce should end, now.

That is all.

Biden Masks His Court Packing Position With Lies

Who gets away with this? – Why, any Democrat gets away with it, that’s who:

Yes, friends, you don’t deserve to know what Joe Biden’s position on packing the Supreme Court is before you go vote in this election. You don’t have to believe me or anyone else, the candidate himself just told you that. It’s like Nancy Pelosi and the whole Obamacare deal, when she said that neither Americans nor members of congress needed to know what was in the 2,000 page bill before congress voted on it: “We’ll have to pass the bill to see what’s in it.”

As always, the contempt for the average American held by Democrat politicians is brutally stunning. But it’s nothing new: The only difference between now and 50 years ago is that the politicians no longer make any effort to hide it.

Look, there is no mystery here: Biden’s refusal to answer the question simply means that he is going to pack the court if he is elected. If he weren’t in favor of doing so, he would answer the question. This is not hard.

In order to justify that position, Biden and his supporters in and out of the corrupt news media have now taken to accusing the Republicans and President Trump of “packing the courts” by confirming so many federal judges over the past few years and by pushing the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. Never mind that what the GOP has achieved since 2017 is thanks to the fact that the voters, in fair and free elections, chose to award the Party control of both the presidency and the U.S. Senate.  President Trump’s and Mitch McConnell’s focus on nominating and confirming judges using the process laid out in the Constitution is now being portrayed somehow nefarious in and unfair.

Dan Rather, the guy who literally invented the entire model for “fake news” in the 2004 campaign, tweeted his support for this utterly dishonest line of though on Saturday, and Senate Ted Cruz had a great reply:

You just could never make this stuff up.

Meanwhile, Biden has to have help from his staff to even know which way to exit a podium:

That was after making yet another teleprompter speech to a pretend audience, during which he misread his staff-dictated position on the minimum wage. The Unfrozen Caveman Candidate said he wanted to require a minimum wage of “15 million dollars an hour” rather than $15 per hour.

Personally, I’ll take the $15 million an hour and retire now.

Interestingly, Biden also made this particular speech without wearing a mask as a virtue signal. It remains a mystery how his staff determines whether or not he should wear a mask at any given dictated speech before any given pretend audience.

Obviously, since there is never a real audience consisting of more than 5-8 people, there’s never a valid reason for him to have one on, but he wears one about 70% of the time, apparently purely as a virtue signal to all the suburban housewife Karens out there. Naturally, no one in the pack of incurious sheep who follow him around as his pretend “press corps” has ever had the intellectual curiosity to ask the simple question: How is this determination made? What are the criteria?

Is it purely based on the polling data of the moment? Is there some preset threshold of mask polling support that must be met in order for the candidate to don the mask, and if said support falls below that threshold, he doesn’t wear it?

Given that Democrats make literally every decision they make based on polling and focus group data, this seems most likely. But, just as with Biden/Harris Harris/Biden’s position on packing the courts, the corrupt news media lacks the institutional and personal integrity to do its job and obtain real answers.

Because that is who these corrupt fake journalists are, and it is what they do in today’s America.

Why the Senate Should Confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett This Week

“I clerked for Justice Scalia more than 20 years ago, and the lessons I learned still resonate. His judicial philosophy is mine, too. A judge must apply the law as written. Judges are not policymakers, and they must be resolute in setting aside any policy views they might hold…I love the United States, and I love the United States Constitution.” – Judge Amy Coney Barrett yesterday.

That 100 word statement describes in a nutshell why Democrats and their America-hating toadies in the corrupt news media hate Judge Amy Coney Barrett and will do anything they can come up with to smear and slander her. The Constitution, and a strict interpretation of its actual words, has been anathema to the Democrat Party since Woodrow Wilson was elected in 1912. It is in fact a bane on that Party’s very existence.

With Senate Democrats lining up to announce they will not only oppose her nomination, but that they will also refuse to even meet with her when she makes the traditional courtesy visits to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and other key senators, Lindsey Graham announced on Saturday that his committee hearings on Judge Barrett’s nomination will start on October 12. If Graham is saying that publicly, then that means he has the sign-off from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to proceed with those hearings.

My only question is, why? Why are Senate Republicans agreeing to hold committee hearings at all on a nomination whose ultimate outcome is a fait accompli? No Democrat will support Barrett’s confirmation. Joe Manchin will make noises about doing that, but he will ultimately allow Chuck Schumer to bully him one more time into marching along with the rest of the Democrat Senate fascists, because that is what Joe Manchin does.

Meanwhile, with Lisa Murkowski now coming around in the face of a primary threat from Sara Palin, only one Republican Senator, Susan Collins (of course), is even implying she might not support Barrett’s confirmation before Election Day. Mitt Romney may ultimately fink out and cast his wormy lot with the Democrats just as he did in their impeachment scam, but that won’t be enough.

Mitch McConnell has the votes to confirm Judge Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday. That would be the logical thing to do in this case since the Court convenes for its 2020-21 session on the first Monday in October, just 8 days from now. The goal of the U.S. Senate should always be that it acts as expeditiously as possible to ensure the Court always has its full compliment of 9 justices.

But what about the vetting process? Good lord, Judge Barrett was confirmed to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals just three years ago, and was thoroughly vetted at that time. She even received the confirmation votes of 3 Democrats – along with every Senate Republican, including Collins and Murkowski (Romney was not in the Senate in 2017) – for that high profile appointment. There is literally no valid reason at all for the Judiciary Committee to go through that process all over again.

The Democrats desperately want these hearings for the sole reason that they would then be able to create the same sort of character assassination circus that they did with Brett Kavanaugh and, to a slightly lesser extent, Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s first two nominees. McConnell has exactly zero obligation or duty to provide the Democrats that platform.

Many Republicans argue that the creation of another confirmation hearing slander circus would be bad for the Democrats politically, and that’s probably true. But this is a woman’s life we are talking about here. Politics should not be the main consideration. Judge Barrett is a wife and mother of 7 children, children who should not be subjected to the kind of abuse and smearing the Democrats and their activists will throw at them and their mother in the lead-up to and conduct of such hearings.

Judge Barrett is an extremely well-qualified jurist who has led an exemplary American life. There are no valid arguments to make otherwise. She also has already very recently been vetted and confirmed to a seat on a U.S. Appellate Court by the U.S. Senate.

The Judiciary Committee hearing should be cancelled. Judge Barrett should be confirmed this week and seated on the Court when it convenes on the First Monday in October.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Biden Camp Reeks of Desperation as Trump Preps to Tilt the Court for a Generation

Here is what CNN and MSNBC do every time they see a protest with the potential for turning violent and destructive:

Image may contain: one or more people and fire

Just thought it was a good time to remind readers of that fact.

Time to hook him back up to that IV in the basement. – The Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Candidate needed a long nap on Friday so his elder-abusing handlers called a lid on the day by 11:00 ET. It marked the 10th day in the first 25 days of September on which the elderly, declining Biden became so tired after a public outing that he had to retreat back to his basement lair.

Because Gropey Joe McNastyFinger was not able, Jill Biden got the assignment of making the campaign’s speech of the day before an imaginary audience. Friday’s event was apparently held in someone’s back yard, and featured a stack of beer kegs as a back drop. No really, I’m not kidding:

Image may contain: 1 person, outdoor

Here is a more fulsome view of that back yard event, so you can see that she is literally speaking to virtually no one:

That is a scene of utter failure and desperation. The Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign truly is a campaign that never was.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump was all over the damn place, visiting three different states in about 16 hours, and holding massive rallies in both Jacksonville and Virginia. Here are some of those scenes:

Magnificent. That’s America.

The corrupt news media and its self-immolating polling establishment expect you to believe that the guy who spends his afternoons napping and having fluids injected is way ahead of the incumbent who attracts these massive outpourings of support everywhere he goes. Think about that for a minute: Has our country ever seen a losing presidential contender who could attract such crowds?

Really and truly: The media is brainwashing you to believe that the Trump campaign is in the same losing position that Jimmy Carter was in in 1980; that Walter Mondale was in in 1984; that Bob Dole was in in 1996; that John McCain was in in 2008. Those who are baby boomers like me will remember the absolutely moribund nature of those losing campaigns and their inability to fill any facility larger than a jr. high gymnasium.

Trump reportedly had 35,000 people lined up trying to get into his Jacksonville event yesterday, and over 20,000 trying to see him in Virginia, which has become a blue state in recent election cycles. Do you really believe that is a sign of a losing campaign, especially when contrasted to the scenes of emptiness and desperation the Biden campaign creates every day?

Please. The very fact that he is taking time to hold a rally in Virginia tells us that his campaign’s polling numbers lead them to believe that “blue” state is in play. And if Virginia is in play, then so are a bunch of other “blue” states.

During his Jacksonville rally, President Trump said that “I think we’re ahead; like, by a lot.” The media and Democrats immediately leapt to ridicule that statement, but think back on the last five years and how many times Donald Trump has made a seemingly absurd prediction or statement that later turned out to have been absolutely true? It has been one of the most consistent features of his campaigns and presidency, in fact.

Another of the most consistent features of his presidency has been the President’s keeping the promises he made during his 2016 campaign. One of those promises was to nominate consistently constitutionalist judges to the federal judiciary. Boy, has he kept that one, and with the able assistance of Mitch McConnell, he has kept it in record numbers.

Today, President Trump will reportedly nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a supremely-qualified Appellate Court Judge, to replace the departed Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Barrett is by all accounts a wonderful jurist and mother who has led an upstanding and extremely-accomplished life.

Naturally, the leftwing Perpetual Outrage Crowd on Twitter leapt to start the process of attacking her and her children as soon as the reports of her pending nomination started leaking Friday afternoon. Here is Senator Josh Hawley responding to on example of the awfulness:

For those unaware, Judge Barrett  is a devout Catholic and the mother of 7 children, including two who she adopted from the impoverished nation of Haiti. Repugnant leftists like this one – and no doubt many Democrat politicians as well – will no doubt attack her for her faith and attack her children as well.

The next few weeks are going to be very ugly. For the radical left, this seat on the Supreme Court is literally the entire war for the soul of America, because the seating of a third Trump nominee will create a constitutionalist majority on the Court that would make the obviously compromised John Roberts completely irrelevant.

For the left, this is war. Do not kid yourselves otherwise.

I’m going to forego the daily riot update for today. It will resume tomorrow.

Today, I want to close with this series of tweets issued last night by leading Democrat Lanny Davis, a corrupt DC lawyer who has toadied for the Clintons for the last quarter of a century now:

Davis goes on in this vein for another 10 tweets or so. Obviously, he’s just speaking for himself, and equally obviously, pretty much everything he says is utter nonsense. Does anyone really think companies like Costco, Starbucks, Apple and Microsoft would just close up shop across the entirety of the U.S. Southwest, Midwest and South?

Please. We’d still get to keep our I-Phone addictions, plus we would get Vegas!

It’s a deal, Lanny – go for it!

That is all.

ACB Will Replace RBG

If you pray, say a big one for Amy Coney Barrett, who will be nominated by President Donald Trump tomorrow to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Barrett is obviously a very brave woman, because she knows without any doubt that she is about to be slandered and smeared in the most vicious ways the Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media can devise.

As we saw with Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his confirmation process, those on the left are very creative and quite without grace, mercy or human decency when it comes to these Supreme Court battles. No lie is too heinous, no tactic too underhanded for them to be willing to give it a try.

Judge Barrett is the mother of 7 children, including two she adopted from Haiti. She knows with out any doubt at all that those children will not be spared the vicious, hateful attacks from those on the left, which have in fact already begun among the Perpetual Outrage Crowd on Twitter. All of those attacks on children clearly violate Twitter’s stated “rules,” but you can be sure that evil social media operation will make no effort to police them.

One would hope that Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham would not allow the Democrats a weeklong platform from which to spew their venom during committee hearings, choosing instead to hold only a brief, proforma hearing that severely limits members’ ability to grandstand. Frankly, one would hope that they would simply not hold a hearing at all, since none is in fact required, but that’s too much to expect from those two, given their stupid, archaic reverence for Senate process, for which not a single Democrat member of that body gives a tinker’s damn.

An expedited process could have this extremely well-qualified woman sworn-in by mid-October, and that is what McConnell should aspire to achieve. In the meantime, we must all prepare ourselves for the sorry spectacle the media and Democrats will create over this nomination.

It will be despicable, demented, depraved, disgusting and disgraceful. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here – you expected something else?

That is all.
