Where’s the sexual assault claims from 40 years ago? Oh that’s right she’s a woman.

Between Amy's confirmation hearing and Donald's debate I'm going to run out of popcorn 🍿!

She seems like a genuinely good and kind person. Earning respect from her liberal colleagues as well- good for her. Speaks to her character.
She seems like a very qualified candidate for this role. I wish her a peaceful transition. And my condolences to Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I believe the "Unborn Babies" will love her!

Ruth Bader Ginsberg: "The president is elected for four years not three years, so the power he has in year three continues into year four."
I honestly really think she is going to surprise Republicans on how she votes on the Supreme Court. She ain’t gonna always rule favorable to them.

Even in RBG's pictures she is always leaning to the left!! 😆
This seemed to lack political punch and biased commentary to it. Nice job!

The likeable ACB will follow SCOTUS precedent (stare decisis). She is more of an academic judge than a polically-motivated judge.

At least she has a heartbeat and doesn't fall asleep on the job.

Thanks for not pulling the "dying wish" nonsense out. I've had it up to here with people pretending that SCOTUS seats are some monarchistic regime where you get to pick the circumstances of the person who succeeds you. You don't. Her dying wishes are only relevant to her family. You don't get to write what should be done with someone else's property into your will.

Thank God we have our New Judge to fill our the empty seat in our Surperme Court .

I'm sure she will make a great Judge and she needs to be appointed now before the elections.
We can Not go without a good Judge in the Supreme Court until the Election's.

We need her now and to be appointed by our beloved President Donald J Trump before the Elections.

This is what Past President Clinton did with the Judge he appointed who passed away.
By Every Right Our Beloved President Donald J Trump Should Appoint Our New Judge Without Any Problem's.

Democrat Politician's what is good for you ? Is more than good enough for us and We The People Expect Democrat Politician's To Be Respectful Towards Our Choice.

The Same Way We Were Respectful Towards Your Choices.

We the American Citizen's of all Nationalities are now speaking. Please Listen to our voices.

No matter how much scrutiny and harassment she gets during the senate confirmation, she will be an associate justice because Trump won in 2016 and has the Senate Republican Majority votes to win. #Suckstobeademocrat 🤣🤣🤣

Her children are not black, because they don't support Joe Biden!
It's time to slow this process down, given the news of the last 24 hours.
Hard to say whether Dems with benefit from confirmation hearings. The 2018 fiasco was certainly damaging the the swing state (D) senators.

Love this... I've watched a couple of Judge Barretts interviews and she's is incredible. I mean apart from all of her back-back degrees, her job as a teacher and then as a court appleal judge while juggling a home is admirable. This is what a "mom can do". Great message!

They always say ‘conservative’ and that she’d move the court to the right. Remember that RBG was highly partisan and that ACB is merely a textualist and not a conservative.

Apparently you only need to be a judge for two years to qualify for one of the most prestigious judgeships in the nation.

I'm curious to know if anyone has switched from being a Democrat or Independant to voting for Trump. I believe a lot of ppl are switching.

If so why did you make the switch?

Democrats have used the supreme court to pass laws that would never pass the congress. If the supreme court only judges laws but does not pass them it will be a devastating loss to the democrats.

"If an opening comes in the last year of President Trump's term....we'll wait to the next election." Lindsay Graham 2018.
It's infuriating that Roe v Wade is the only topic getting airtime. Abortion is not even a top 20 issue facing this crumbling nation.

What about Amy Coney Barrett's views on healthcare?
Or pandemic control laws?
Or corporate power?
Or labor rights?
Or pollution regulation?

oh yea, both parties agree on these things and their media propagandists keep us divided over whether the 31 abortion clinics left in the Deep South will be reduced to 20.

It's a good sign when people who actually respect the constitution are being selected for these roles.

Dear John:

Well, we all thought the big problem for our US democracy was Citizens
United/Koch Brothers big money in politics. Silly us; turns out that money
isn't all that important if you can conflate entertainment with the
electoral process. Trump masters TV, TV so-called news picks up and repeats
and repeats to death this opinionated blowhard and his hairbrained ideas,
free-floating discontent attaches to a seeming strongman and we're off and
running. JFK, Jr would be delighted by all this as his "George" magazine saw
celebrity politics coming. The magazine struggled as it was ahead of its
time but now looks prescient. George, of course, played the development
pretty lightly, basically for charm and gossip, like People, but what we are
dealing with now is dead serious. How does this get handled in the general?
Secretary Clinton is not an entertainer, and not a celebrity in the Trump,
Kardashian mold; what can she do to offset this? I'm certain the
poll-directed insiders are sure things will default to policy as soon as the
conventions are over, but I think not. And as I've mentioned, we've all
been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire
to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains
strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands
some serious, serious thinking - and not just poll driven,
demographically-inspired messaging.

Rubio's press conference yesterday AM was good and should be repeated in its
entirety, not just in nibbles. I will attend the Clinton fundraiser here
next week but as I can only afford the low level of participation may just
get to wave without a "hello."

I fear we are all now trying to navigate a set of forces that cannot be
simply explained or fully understood, so it is and will reamin interesting!

Sent with a handshake,
Eric Mccord

Uhhh ohhhh a favor to the Republican party key term from beginning 👯💁? Lets see, besides the house republicans has the country in its ✋. Pledge of allegiance: key terms and 👄: and to the Republic for which it stands. I'm assuming IT u.s.a. meaning in short terms capitalism over DEMOCRACY. Weather right wing right wing extremist, left wing left wing extremist, each group will do what's in the best interest for their parties and parties big wigs. CORRUPTION!!!!!!!!! Do us that are not major players even matter to any parties? If you really know how politics are which side would u rather be totally controlled by? Until jesus comes back to 🌎?
Yeah, so ACB will be a supreme court justice shortly. Get over it.

As long as Ms. Barrett upholds the US Constitution without bias to her faith or a political party I vote yes.

Abortion is a touchy subject. I am fine with it if the mother’s life is at risk, I’m fine with it during the 1st trimester, I’m a bit on the fence with certain 2nd trimester circumstances, and I think 3rd trimester abortion should be illegal

Priebus, Price, Flynn Barr and others that have left or been fired.

Already she is showing she can't be fair and impartial as she should hold off on accepting the nomination until after election! What a Catholic she is turning out to be !

A job/career requires a person to work/commute approximately 55 hours each week. Children require at least 16 hours each day. Laundry, shopping, cooking, and cleaning fill in the other eight. Who can do all those things (and sleep) at 100%?
My six children were raised by a single mother. I worked two jobs to support them but had no time for them or the home. Read - When Women Were Warriors. Women choose - Warrior or Mother. Both are equally respected. Each need the other. Warriors do not have children and Mothers do not fight. BE PROUD OF YOUR CHOICE

Republicans kept the Senate in the 2018 midterms. If the Democrats don't want the Senate confirming the Supreme Court Justice they should have done more to win. Deal with it.
Take that Russian bots!!!
