Amy Coney Barrett, Wiki

Amy Coney Barrett, a conservative Catholic, was sworn in as Trump’s third Supreme Court appointee, confirmed by the Republican majority Senate days before the presidential election. While the appointment was Constitutional, Democrats claim that the Senate’s vote to confirm her, 52 – 48, is illegitimate because the 52 Republicans who voted for her represent 152 million Americans, while the 48 that voted against her represent 170 million Americans. Democrats are focusing on taking the Senate. Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer threatened revenge against Republicans saying, “And the next time the American people give Democrats a majority in this chamber, you will have forfeited the right to tell us how to run that majority. You may win this vote, but in the process, you will speed the precipitous decline of faith in our institution, our politics, the Senate and the Supreme Court.” Some Democrats called for destroying Republicans and to “get militant.”

Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer used what many have been calling a threat to the GOP following the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court by the Senate.

“My colleagues may regret this for a lot longer than they think,” said Schumer on the Senate floor during a speech.

“I want to be very clear with my Republican colleagues. You may win this vote … but you will never, never get your credibility back.”

“And the next time the American people give Democrats a majority in this chamber, you will have forfeited the right to tell us how to run that majority. You may win this vote, but in the process, you will speed the precipitous decline of faith in our institution, our politics, the Senate and the Supreme Court.”

“My colleagues may regret this for a lot longer than they think. Here at this late hour, at the end of this sordid chapter in the history of the Senate, the history of the Supreme Court, my deepest and greatest sadness is for the American people,” the Democrat senator from New York said.

“It will go down as one of the darkest days in the 231-year history of the United States Senate.”

Mixed Emotions Over Continued School Shutdowns

November 27, 2020 Tammy Bruce 0

Continued shutdowns of schools across the US have caused an alarming decline in learning. Remote virtual learning on computers is not working. Teachers’ unions have lobbied to keep schools closed. Public schools have a radicalizing influence. Homeschooling is on the rise, and that may be the ultimate solution.

Anti-Lockdown Protests Across Europe

November 24, 2020 Off-Guardian 0

The “second wave” of the “pandemic” is the excuse for Draconian lockdown measures, economic destitution, and sweeping police powers. Police turned water cannons as tens of thousands of people protested in Berlin against lockdowns. Meanwhile, the media either demonizes anti-lockdown protesters or ignores them altogether.

The republicans will never get their credibility back. True enough. And the demoncrats never had any credibility. They already declared ALL OUT WAR on the constitution and everything legit, so nothing they say means anything … except they are vile predators, as always. But true, the republicans are predators too, just somewhat less psycho on the surface.
