    I can't put my finger on it, but there is something very unlikeable about Amy Coney. Not that you need charisma to be a judge, but she is very dry and almost sour to the process.

    Crazy how ugly Democrat’s are

    She’s been a shill for the Republican Party right out of law school. She’ll be a good little party member and do what she’s told to carry out the radical conservative agenda.

    Why talk so much about Ginsberg? Her life has absolutely nothing to do with Amy Coney Barrett. Frankly the democrats should spit at her name since her Pride handed Trump a supreme court pick.

    Graham:"If an opening comes in the last year of President Trump's term, and the primary process has started, we'll wait to the next election."
    Graham: "I want you to use my words against me. If there is a Republican President [of the United States] in 2016 [-2020] and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say "Lindsey Graham said let's let the next President [of the United States]- whoever it may be- make that nomination and you can use my words against me and you'd be absolutely right."

    Our country is blessed to have Judge Barrett. She will serve and preserve the Constitution for many years as she serves on the Supreme Court. We are all, as Americans, proud of her, and we all look forward to her many years and lifetime of service on the Supreme Court. God Bless the United States of America.

    “I think it’s personal ok to be pro-choice” Yes Lindsey but that doesn’t mean you should impose you’re personal beliefs on other people. Thats the whole point of the “pro-choice” argument!!!!!!

    RBG is moot. She’s busy rotting in hell.

    RBG and Scalia are dead. They had their time on the bench. They made their mark. Now, as seats become vacated, either by death or retirement like Sandra Day O’Conner, it’s the duty and Constitutional obligation for the President to fill that seat. Republican Presidents fill them with Conservative jurists, Democrat Presidents fill them with Liberal jurists, and George Bush 43, filled it with a RINO.

    No Honor. Hypocrites towards fellow countrymen.

    Republicans are filth… in the biblical sense.

    This is not RBG’s seat. It is a vacant seat to be filled by someone who will uphold the Constitution.

    Leave RBG alone! She's in heaven with all the aborted babies now. She probably has some explainimg to do.

    DemocRATS have NOT been this mad since Republicans freed up the slaves from them.
    I'm an EX-Democrat, I didn't vote for Trump in 2016, but I got tired of DemocRAT Politicians actions and lies.
    HISPANICS TO VOTE REPUBLICAN ALL THE WAY

  25. Avatar

    Even though I had voted for every Republican presidential candidate since 1980, I didn’t vote for Donald Trump in 2016.
    Many Republican nominees had been huge disappointments to me, and I wasn’t going to vote for yet another GOP candidate I thought would betray my trust. I couldn’t imagine Trump as a genuine conservative who would champion limited government, respect individual freedom and liberty, and protect the unborn — but was I ever wrong. Although I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016, I would crawl over broken glass to vote for him in 2020.

    In 2016, I was convinced Trump was just another New York liberal. On election night, however, I smiled. I was happy that at least Hillary Clinton wouldn’t be president, and I suspected that the next four years with Trump would at least be entertaining.
    The primary reason I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 was that I didn’t believe him. I didn’t trust that he would be pro-life, a non-negotiable issue for me. His bluster and bravado didn’t appeal to me. I took him literally but not seriously, in contrast to his supporters who took him seriously but not literally (credit to Peter Thiel for identifying this significant distinction).
    By the time Trump took office, I was willing to give him a chance. He was the president, after all, and deserved the opportunity to prove himself. During the first year of his presidency, I was impressed by his commitment to keeping his campaign promises, unlike most politicians. By the end of 2017, I classified myself as a Trump supporter because of what he had already done as president.
    Trump’s list of first-term accomplishments has been truly impressive:

    Building the strongest U.S. economy in my lifetime through historic business and personal tax cuts, resulting in millions of jobs created and record-low unemployment

    Cutting federal government regulations that had a stranglehold on American business innovators and entrepreneurs

    Confronting China’s trade abuses and negotiating fair trade deals with Canada, Mexico, South Korea, and Japan

    Eliminating the Obamacare individual mandate

    Rebuilding our military through investments in our defense capabilities as well as securing the largest military pay raise in a decade

    Nominating and confirming more solid conservative circuit court judges than any other first-term administration

    Nominating and fighting for the confirmation of two originalists, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, to the Supreme Court and then nominating Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy left by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    Moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and then brokering the Abraham Accords peace deal between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain

    Consistently fighting Democrats to build the wall to secure our southern border, reinforcing and repairing hundreds of miles, with more construction on the way

    This is just a brief summary of the Trump administration’s accomplishments. In addition, Trump has been the most pro-life president in U.S. history. He has promoted a culture of life in his domestic policies, by supporting pro-life pregnancy centers, creating the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division, supporting health workers’ conscience rights, and working to defund Planned Parenthood.
    Trump has upheld the same objectives in his foreign policies, such as through the Global Health Assistance Policy and by ending funding for the pro-abortion United Nations Population Fund. In January 2020, Trump became the first U.S. president to attend and address the March for Life.
    The Trump administration’s accomplishments have been in spite of relentless, daily attacks by the mainstream media, which act as the Pravda-like arm of the Democratic Party. Trump Derangement Syndrome is evident every day on television and online.
    Then as details about SpyGate were revealed in early 2018, I became a full-throated proponent of Trump, incensed that the Obama administration colluded with Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and legacy media to weaponize the federal government intelligence and law enforcement agencies against an opposition party candidate and then a sitting president. When the Russian collusion hoax didn’t work, Trump’s enemies tried to take him down with fake impeachment charges over a legitimate phone call with a new Ukrainian administration.

    As president, Trump has largely kept his promises and fought against relentless opposition. I don’t care about the tone of his tweets nor if his opponents think he’s rude. I’ve seen that he is a patriot who genuinely loves the United States of America and its people. I misjudged Trump in 2016, but I will do everything I can to see that he is re-elected in 2020 — and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

    Kamala, are Democrats planning to pack SCOTUS if you don't get your way in this confirmation hearing–yes or no? (Unlike where Barrett stands on murdering babies, this is important for Americans to know bef 11-3.)

    I can't believe how many democratic fools are in that Senate. Right at this moment I'm asking myself why did I vote Democrat for so long, but today thank God, I understand why. It was because my parents were Democrats. I never bothered for a second to do my research. That's why I encourage everyone to do your own research. Thank God; that's over, because after my research I found out how many fools the democratic party has. I can't believe I was voting for this corrupt party. Maybe when my parents were alive Democrats were more clean, but today they don't care what you think of them. They make fools of themselves every day by lying on camera to the American people, like we can't see through their fake masks. They are so sloppy that they picked a guy like Biden who doesn't know whether he's coming or going. Then they picked Kamala who didn't even finished in the trail. There were way better suited candidates for Joe, and they're going to regret that decision. She was out from the get go in the Democratic Presidential campaign. Her own State doesn't like her. You may ask; why did the party picked these pair? Because they are just puppets. They will not be leading the country if they win. Pelosi will. She will be running everything in the background taking orders from the people with the money who we don't see, and I assure you, the Chinese Communist Party is in it up to their necks. This is a huge mafia people and the Democratic Party is selling the United States, which is up for grabs if they win. Allow me to remind you; if they win our America will never be the same, for all our rights will be taken away from us. Be smart people. We have a strong President who don't take BS from China, Russia, Iran, or anyone who wants to see us vanished from the face of the earth. He accomplished everything he promised better than any other President in history, and the pandemic is part of their plan. It's a no brainer. Don't let yourselves be fooled by polls. Trump will win and will continue to be our President for 4 more years. Vote Trump 2020.
