Listen to Amy Coney Barrett's full speech after Supreme Court nomination

metmike: After listening to and reading about this lady, the most important thing............getting the best possible person for Americans on the Supreme Court makes supporting her a no brainer for me.

I don't care about the politics of who said what 4 years ago anymore. It's clear that she is better than any choices that Biden told us he was considering(that's a joke actually because Biden would not give us any).

Seriously, what is it in a Supreme Court judge that you want that is lacking in this lady?

She reminds me of my sister Patti, who has 10 children, the last 2 are adopted Aides orphans from Kenya:

this poor women is in big trouble with the idiots on the left. She is Catholic and was was Scalia's clerk....gasp....and on top all that she actually believes the constitution is the law and that judges should not make crap up out of whole cloth. The left will try and make this every bit the circus it was for Kavanaugh....Jesus, hope this candidate does not like beer or basketball.

Senate Democrats want to avoid Kavanaugh 2.0



Senate Democrats say they want to avoid a replay of the bitter fighting that characterized Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s 2018 Senate confirmation hearings, which centrist former  Sens. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) thought cost them their reelection bids that year.

Several Democratic senators say they want to avoid getting drawn into a partisan food fight over President Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett that could alienate voters in Republican-leaning Senate battlegrounds, such as Georgia, Iowa, Montana and North Carolina.

Suburban college-educated women are a key demographic in the battle for the Senate, and Democratic senators acknowledge they need to be careful of getting too aggressive with Barrett, a mother of seven.

“I’m sick and tired of losing,” said one Democratic senator. “We had a Kavanaugh 1.0, which has informed people’s approach this time.”

“We’re not going to go down that road again. People know what happened to Joe Donnelly, they know what happened to Claire McCaskill and they know what happened to [former Sen.] Heidi Heitkamp,” the senator said, referring to the North Dakota Democrat who lost her reelection bid weeks after Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote.

Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), the only Democrat who voted to confirm Kavanaugh in 2018 and went on to win reelection that year in a state that Trump carried by 42 points in 2016, said he hopes the Senate avoids a Kavanaugh-type redux.

“I hope they do. I would hope all my colleagues ... have a civil, have a really professional, decent, honorable, respectable hearing, that’s all. And get to the points,” he said.

Manchin called the bruising Kavanaugh confirmation fight, which erupted into controversy after allegations from a woman that the nominee sexually assaulted her when the two were in high school, a “fiasco.”

“That vote cost, I think, a few of our colleagues their jobs,” he said.

Harris walks fine line on Barrett as election nears

Democratic strategists warn that getting too aggressive with Barrett, a devout Catholic who finished first in her class at Notre Dame law school and has been praised repeatedly for her calm temperament, could backfire.

“I think she wants to come off as asking thoughtful and fair yet hard questions. I don’t think that she wants to come off as being on the attack,” said Rodell Mollineau, a Democratic strategist and former Senate leadership aide.

“There’s a fine line you have to walk here,” he added.

“If you’re going to go on the attack, you need to make sure your line of questioning is bulletproof and the way that you set up your argument and your attack is not seen as just a partisan ploy,” he said.

Democratic lawmakers want to avoid another messy Supreme Court confirmation fight after losing four incumbents after the 2018 battle over then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which was filled with personal recriminations.

The battle two years ago energized Republican voters in red states and at least two Democrats, Sens. Claire McCaskill (Mo.) and Joe Donnelly (Ind.), lost that fall in part due to the backlash.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who narrowly won reelection in 2018 after voting for Kavanaugh, called the episode “a fiasco.”

Harris, who with Biden has a 10-point lead over Trump and Pence, will be careful to avoid a lightning-rod moment that can become a rallying cry for the right.

Democrats also want to avoid the mistakes made during Barrett’s confirmation hearing for a seat on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, when three senators asked or mentioned her Catholic faith and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) famously told the nominee: “The dogma lives loudly within you.”

“The pitfall would be [to] look mean spirited. Don’t look like you’re beating up someone America doesn’t know and would beg the question why you’re being so harsh,” said Steve Jarding, a Democratic strategist and former senior adviser to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Yes,  but she has, and will base her judgments on a literal interpretation of the constitution.  That's one of the top objections liberals have to any SCOTUS appointee.  (Forget that it's the basis of the job description).

There are some things, to this day,  that they can't get through the legislative process.  They need activist judges.

CNN has decided to not air the hearings except for picking certain places, like when Kamala Harris just questioned her.

Harris told us that the evidence is incontrovertible that  climate change is affecting the quality of the air that we breath and water that we drink.

Comparing it to smoking causing cancer and the coronavirus being contagious. 

No, Kamala the fake climate crisis/emergency is about the climate and weather based on global warming from the greenhouse gas, CO2.

As an ACTIVE environmentalist, this is one of the things that is so frustrating for me . We are devoting all of our resources to fight a beneficial gas and the best weather/climate in the last 1,000 years for life on this greening planet(thanks to climate change) and looking the other way with regards to the REAL environmental problems.

Real pollution is getting off scott free, so that biased, fake environmentalists like Kamala, AOC and  Bernie, who use  10 times the amount of fossil fuels that I do, can pontificate and push propaganda for their agenda. 

The real environmental crisis's/insects dying-dead zones-aquifers drying up-plastics in the ocean: April 2019

Kamala claims to be an environmentalist and to understand climate change but today, she made it so clear that she does not understand these fields at all and is a fake environmentalist.

Amy Coney Barrett isn’t a scientist, but she might be a climate denier

metmike: In case you've been living in a cave, anybody like me(an atmospheric scientist and PRACTICING environmentalist for 38 years) that won't follow their fake climate crisis.... and I come armed with all the authentic data to show that  it's fake..............are to be labeled as climate deniers, to make people associate it with Holocaust "deniers", to smear us and have society shun us and not look at our authentic data that proves we are having a climate optimum.

That didn't take long, here it is:

Kamala Harris Proves Amy Coney Barret is a Climate Change Denier

metmike: Anybody with a grip on the authentic facts and science, knows that what really happened during that questioning is that Kamala Harris proved herself to be a fraud, especially with her statements just before this video.

ACB has shown that she is the smartest person in the room(and outside the room) a wide margin.

Why can't we find somebody like her to run for president????
