The scumbag Democrats begin their campaign to slander and defame Amy Barrett. Their MSM buddies pump out hit piece after hit piece. The Republicans against Trump, who never actually seem to support Republican positions and constantly pander to the left jump in as well. So far, Amy is evil because she adopted minority kids, and is a Catholic....and so it goes from the party that claims to be about tolerance...

Yea but Republicans are supposed to be racists right? Thats what we're told. The party of tolerance shouldn't be so anti-women, anti-Catholic, harmful and oppressive on a policy basis towards minorities, and fervent advocates of killing unborn babies, a high percent of which also happen to be minorities...The party really is, when you pull back the surface layer, a hateful bunch of bigots who manipulate and abuse minorities and stomp on freedom.

Refreshing comments from Amy Barrett after her nomination:

 

“I love the United States, and I love the United States’ constitution,” Barrett said. “I’m truly humbled by the prospect of serving on the Supreme Court."

 

Unlike The Squad and The Left that hate America and seeks to destroy the Constitution.

 

Should be one hell of a hearing.

From the little bit that i have read she seems like quite an accomplished individual who is well respected by those who know her.

 

It is also pretty clear that she is pretty ‘right wing’ in terms of how she will likely rule when on the court (with two other justices - of the 9 - further right than her). But hey, it is what it is.

 

Both parties need to be careful in the coming weeks. If the Democrats are smart they will stay away from the personal attacks and focus instead on what it means for the country moving forward. The Affordable Care Act is likely the first casualty. Health care was THE issue that hurt Republicans the most 2 years ago in the mid term elections (well that and voters unhappiness with Trump). In the middle of a pandemic millions losing health care coverage, especially those with pre-existing conditions, should continue to resonate with voters.

 

If health care gets traction as a key issue my guess is Democrats might get not only the Presidency but also the Senate.

And Democrats are supposed to be freedom hating right? That's what we're told. But look at the guy making love to dictators around the world and undermining our alliances.

 

There are batshit crazies on both sides. The only difference is that the crazies on one side got their man into power.

 

Btw to the original post, they will defame her and make her out to be awful, but at least she will prevail in getting the job. I'd rather be Amy Barrett than Merrick Garland.

This is a great example of a psychological bias.

What else exactly would you call it when the primary points of attack here are 1) She is Catholic, and 2) she has adopted minority children?

I would call that a strawman, because it is not established that those are the "primary points of attack".

From everything I've seen and heard so far, Democrats are VERY restrained and they aren't attacking ACB but rather focus on what the outcome might look like. Nancy Pelosi went on some rant that little sense but she stayed very clear of saying anything other than ACB is qualified. This pick really puts Democrats into a tough spot. If Democrats say/do anything bad or pick on ACB, Trump will call them hypocrites and will probably get a boost among white women voters which he nearly split with HRC. If Dems do nothing, Trump and Republicans get a conservative justice on the court with 6-3 majority. Democrats have also tempered down the "we will expand the court to 15" talk because that's really irking the center independents.

 

 

I also think this is a very surprising pick by DT and wonder if this is his strategy for 2020. DT has been losing support amongst white college and non-college women who most certainly helped him in 2016. The other interesting item is the pocket of Catholic voters that went to HRC (30% of whites and 78% of hispanics). By picking a white catholic it looks like he is looking to bolster his standing there. I wonder what steered him away from Lagoa who would probably be helpful with the Hispanic vote. For DT to win, he has to have a very unconventional campaign so I wonder what the long game here is...

There is no question that she will be confirmed. There are risks moving forward for both Democrats and Republicans.

 

I am watching to see what the impact of this issue is for a few Senate races like Susan Collins In Maine. She is a great example of how poorly Trump is doing right now. She won in Maine in 2014 (pre Trump) with 67% of the popular vote. She is now running slightly behind her Democrat opponent last collection of polls i saw. That is a meaningful drop for an incumbent. My understanding is she polls pretty well; Trump is the anchor around her neck. The supreme court pick might do her in. We will see. A couple of losses in states like Maine and the Republicans will lose the majority in the Senate. It will be interesting to see if the supreme court pick ends up costing the Republicans the Presidency and the Senate.

It really has nothing to do with Amy Barrett. It's the hypocrisy of the GOP. In 2016, the GOP thew a fit about Obama wanting to appoint a new judge 9 MONTHS BEFORE THE ELECTION. Now, it's completely fine for Trump to do it within a month.

I'm not strongly for or against any one political party, but the Trump administration is the most corrupt administration the country has ever seen - on an astronomical level far beyond what has ever been seen before in this country (what's the current count of the number of people in his administration that have either been arrested or quit? I can't keep track).

 

Trump is one of the most despicable pieces of shit on the planet.

Firstly, does anyone ever actually look at the indictment or the charges? People just parrot headlines...I posted this before (and it's not updated with the latest on Flynn). If people are so willing to call out Trump regarding corruption then why were they justifying Clinton as a candidate and no endorsing Biden? I mean you've got to be kidding me.

 

Lets do a quick review of the Russian Investigation though while were on "threat to democracy."

 

Basis of original Russian investigation

- Dossier which was funded by the DNC and constructed by fusion GPS and opposition group.

  Debunked and shown to have tons of inaccuracies. Then it was used in a FISA court to allow surveillance.

 

Three members of the Trump campaign that held former high level security clearance positions. Chris Christie, Rudy Giuliani and Michael Flynn.

If the FBI was concerned they could have approached them at any time, but they didn't. Instead they illegally spied on the campaign.

 

Andrew McCabe admitted that his initial "findings" to trigger the Mueller report were based on false information.

 

30+ indictments

 

Paul Manafort - Going to prison (not for Russian interference) but for tax fraud, wire fraud, and lobbying for Ukraine! Linked to Kilimnik (suspected Russian intelligence)

 

George Papadopoulos - Lied under oath to FBI. No Russian interference, no collusion found.

 

Michael Flynn (DOJ dropped case) - Indicted for a process crime (not Russian collusion). He did not fill out the paperwork properly for Trump to

      become National Security Council Adviser. Unregistered foreign lobbying for the Turkish Government.

 

Michael Cohen - On the record lying 15 times to congress in two separate testimonies. He was not indicted for Russian collusion but instead for

      Taxi medallion fraud, tax fraud, and wire fraud

 

Obamas White House Counsel - Indicted for unregistered foreign lobbying, taking a 4m dollar wire transfer that was laundered through Cyprus with Paul Manafort being the lawyer.

 

 

The rest of the 30+ indictments are foreign Russian citizens running troll farms....Russia as a country is registered as a foreign adversary....no connection to Trump.

 

30m dollars, two+ years of work and Adam "shit for brains" Schiff says "we are still waiting for material evidence". Meanwhile there has been over 2,000+ articles

written by the four major newspapers (USA Today, The Washington Post, The L.A.Times, The New York Times) alluding and in most cases insinuating a Trump Russian collusion.

 

Five Trump associates indicted and not a single connection between Trump campaign and Russia. Let's not forget all the soundbites from DNC campaign heads saying Trump will be impeached no matter what. They planned an impeachment before his election. If that isn't a threat to democracy then I don't know what is.

^ Castanza Please!  No more facts!

 

The LEFT operates on emotions and hysterics.  Any "lawlessness" they have shown is for a worthy and just cause!

Just ask James Comey about his "Higher Loyalty"!  The man who made his mark as more corrupt than J Edgar Hoover.

History will reward Comey with his own show on MSNBC or CNN - just like McCabe or Michael Avenatti.

 

Always remember that a prerequisite for these jobs is lying to Congress.

Hypocrisy of the GOP? Weren't the Democrats the ones pushing to have Garland put in - even in an election year? Biden even had an op ed for it!

 

I do agree that Trump will probably go down as one of the most corrupt (if not most) administrations.

 

To act like Biden's son isn't corrupt (and probably at least as corrupt as Trump) isn't fair. Keep in mind that Biden has been selling out the American people for 40 years. It really just boils down to a different type of corruption.

 

When you end up with a corrupt system, guess what floats to the top?

The wealthiest group paid more taxes under lower rates. 

So, they must have earned a substantial amount more income to offset the tax reduction.

 

So they received benefits of gov't spending and de-regulation (increased revenues), AND gov't tax cuts (decreased taxes).

 

I am not sure what point you're making, but to me this reads like a big cause of wealth inequality.

So does the right.  Look at all of the crap the right was throwing at Breonna Taylor, yet we find out that the main cop in the shooting may have dirty, narcotics related dealings and also was at the site of the shooting, when he should not have been...veteran cop doesn't know that?  Cheers!

So you’d rather the gov’t got less money as long as “the wealthy” also had less with which to pay them? Nice.
