    Even if she would be the deciding vote in repealing Roe v Wade it does not mean that your abortions would not go away. It would only put it to the states to make the determination on whether it be legal in that state, if your state doesn't allow it you could simply go to a neighboring state and murder your baby.

    The excuse by twitter and Facebook to ban the bombshell Biden and Hunter story of them scamming America is the emails were hacked. Wrong! Hunter didn't pay his bill so the laptop became legal property of the repair shop. The guy gave the hard drive contents to the FBI in 2019 but of course they sat on it. Luckily he also gave a copy to Rudy Giuliani. Check out his YouTube page he says this is just the beginning. Spread the word because the paid off globalist media lapdogs are trying their best to stop this bombshell story from getting out!

    My neighbors were just out walking their dog. During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said she wanted to be President someday. Both of her parents, Democratic Party members, were standing there so I asked her, “If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?" She replied, “I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people." Her parents beamed with pride! “Wow…what a worthy goal,” I said… “But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that!"☝🏽 “What do you mean?" she replied. So I told her, You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house. She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, “Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work and you can just pay him the $50?" I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party!” ❤️🇺🇸
    Her parents aren't speaking to me anymore.

    I think Barret has hinted restricting late term abortion and not so much full.reversal of Roe. I give whoever was behind this nomination in finding a qualified candidate with a small trail of writings a lot of credit. And I dont atteibute that to Trump since he outsourced this to the Federalist Society. Not a fan of a right wing court but commend the brilliance of the strategy alone

    I think late term abortions are really the problem here. The nutso Uber liberals who stand around bragging about terminating pregnancies at a point where the infant can survive ( and easily be given up for adoption )are the ones who are stirring the pot and adding gas to the fire.

    #1 NOW IS A PERFECT TIME TO TAKE A LOOK AT *TERM LIMITS FOR ALL FEDERAL JUDGES *THE REAL-ISSUE CONCERNING SUPREME COURT JUSTICES = 3/4 OF A CENTURY FOR ONE MIND-SET ON A BENCH IS JUST TOO LONG!!! This is predicated on the answer to the question: Why are POLITICIANS from both parties clamoring so fervently to nominate Justices to all of the Federal Court benches? The answer to that question provides a clear understanding of how Americans have come to view our Federal Judges, and that is, as an arm of each political party, respectively. And the main follow-through on this fact is that Judges these days are more-than-willing to issue partisan rulings these days. This is in fact, realized, in the many rulings that have been issued from the various benches, from the lower Courts, right up through the Applet Courts, and through to the Supreme Court of these Lands. Just look at the resent Florida Court ruling on the "restoration of felon's right's to vote in elections. Consider the referendum-vote of the people of Florida, who voted overwhelming to give those rights back to those felons who have served their time for crimes committed." The Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, in his plight to manipulate the voter-ranks in the 2020 election, devised a plan to withhold the restoration of those felon's rights by arbitrarily imposing the requirement that those felons must pay back any fines before being able to vote. Moving through the court system, the claims of those felons, that this was not the People's Will, was dismissed by (Republican favored) Applet Judges, in favor of the voter-suppressing Republican Governor. This sort of ruling is plainly clear that Federal Judges are becoming increasingly partisan with their rulings. This could come back to find the Republican ranks on the other side of such future partisan rulings. So this is the solution: "We need to find a way to take partisanship out of our judicial system, the way it was intended in the first place. We need Term Limits for our Federal Judges, and a reform of the process of which they are appointed to the Benches" I believe, with the modern political climate, it will be impossible to solve, that is, within the process justices are appointed today. I believe the American People would be better served if our Judges were VOTED onto the benches by both branches of the government: House and the Senate. Most importantly, I believe LIFE APPOINTMENTS to the Bench is severely problematic for the Republic. Three quarters of a century could go by, having a partisan Justice sitting on the bench skewing rulings that only make sense to a small number of American Citizens. This has to change if we are to have a better system of government. The course we are on now will only render the US looking more and more like Belarus of today.

    Chief Justice Roberts, Justice Kavanaugh, and now SCOTUS nominee COVID Barrett were all Republican legal shysters working for Bush and the GOP in their machinations that led to the horrendous, undemocratic, purely partisan Bush v. Gore SCOTUS decision. Coincidence? Think again. The Republican fix is in for this election and any future contested elections for the foreseeable future. Bye-bye democracy, hello banana Republic!

    Sen. Whitehouse has been the most effective member on the Judiciary Committee nomination panel, exposing Republican corruption, dark money, and its ties to conservative justices on SCOTUS. The constant hyper-partisan decisions based upon contorted ideological distortions of the law by these Republican justices are destroying not only the reputation, but also the legitimacy of the Supreme Court. Republicans have been taking a wrecking ball to long-cherished government institutions for decades, and SCOTUS is just one of their more notable casualties.

    Amy "COVID" Barrett channeling Nazi Sgt. Schultz: "I know nothing…about systemic racism! Or, climate change! Or, sexual orientation, which I label "sexual preference!" Or, emoluments being corruption! Or, recusing myself for the appearance of conflict of interest! Or, voting rights being more important than gun rights! Or, Republican voter suppression and gerrymandering!"

    Expand SCOTUS to FIFTEEN justices once Democrats regain power! It will be Republicans own fault for playing partisan power games, packing the Federal courts and SCOTUS with radical extremist conservative activist judges hiding behind judicial philosophies like 'originalism" and "textualism" to distort the Constitution and the law to benefit their bankrupt, corrupt ideology and corrupt Republican government.

    GOP has lost the popular vote in six of the last seven elections and yet appointed 15 out of the last 19 justices. Barrett would make that 16 out of 20 seats. The reason the president forgot to mention that (a) his judges cannot be permitted to be independent; and (b) that his judges tend to be wildly out of step with public opinion on so many of the topics he holds dear is that it would highlight what minority rule looks like, and why he cannot, in fact “let the people” decide with their votes in his upcoming election. A court determined to impose minority rule is in fact the playbook. It benefits big business, it benefits secret donors with considerable war chests, it benefits white supremacy, and it benefits Trump’s trailing electoral campaign. Quite simply, locking in the power of a minority through the courts is the political project of Trump and the Republican Senators who are equally eager to jam this nominee through before the election.
