Really proud of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. She will be confirmed and make an excellent Supreme Court justice. If you want more like her committed to protecting our God-given rights under the Constitution, don’t vote Democrat.

"Barrett's statement on originalism leading off the hearing was one of the strongest statements in modern history." Jonathan Turley
Barrett's statement on originalism leading off the hearing was one of the strongest statements in modern history. The statement that meaning "does not change" with time is unambiguous and open. That confirms the transformative impact of this nomination for the Court at the outset— Jonathan Turley (@JonathanTurley) October 13, 2020

"Judge Amy Coney Barrett "has received extraordinary testimonials from her colleagues and students, who say she is brilliant, conscientious and kind," Rich Lowry writes in the New York Post.
" "The opposition has countered with a dog's breakfast of nonsense, including that her confirmation hearing can't be held in the middle of a pandemic." Meanwhile, "the Senate Judiciary Committee has already been holding hybrid in-person and virtual hearings all year. There is no reason the committee can't do the same with Barrett next week." "

Amy Coney Barrett to tell senators: Courts 'should not try' to make policy
"Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett will tell senators that courts "should not try" to make policy, leaving those decisions to the political branches of government, according to opening remarks for her confirmation hearing obtained Sunday by The Associated Press.
"The Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, set to begin begin Monday as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps across the country, are taking place three weeks before Election Day and after millions of Americans already have voted. President Donald Trump nominated the federal appeals court judge soon after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died.
" "I have been nominated to fill Justice Ginsburg's seat, but no one will ever take her place," Barrett will tell the committee, according to her opening remarks.
"Barrett says she has resolved to maintain the same perspective as her mentor, the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who was "devoted to his family, resolute in his beliefs, and fearless of criticism." " (cont'd)
NEW — Amy Coney Barrett’s opening statement. Notable line: “The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches elected by and accountable to the People.

"She speaks extensively of her family in the statement, and says she will never let the law define her identity or crowd out the rest of her life. She says a similar principle applies to the courts, which are "not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in our public life."

Sen. Tom Cotton launches 'Supreme Court War Room' to defend Trump's nominee
Cotton's initiative will track attacks on the nominee and provide rapid response to push back
"Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton announced the launch of a "Supreme Court War Room" on Friday to help Republicans fight back against Democratic attacks on President Trump's impending nomination to fill the High Court's seat left vacant after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
"The campaign-style war room will track attacks on the nominee and provide rapid response to push back, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
"The president is scheduled to make his official announcement of the pick at 5 p.m. ET on Saturday. Multiple sources tell Fox News that 7th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett is the frontrunner."

Three Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed In Less Than 45 Days, Including Ginsburg
"Three Supreme Court Justices, including Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away on Friday due to complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer, were confirmed by the Senate within 45 days of their formal nomination date.
"According to Senate records, Justices Ginsburg, John Paul Stevens, and Sandra Day O'Connor were all confirmed in a short period of time. Stevens's confirmation in 1975 took 19 days, O'Connor's confirmation in 1981 took 33 days, and Ginsburg's confirmation in 1993 took 42 days."

Here's who might succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court
"Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death on Friday at 87 is sure to spark a battle over who will fill her seat.
"Here are some of the judges who could be in line to succeed her on the high court, should President Trump choose to nominate someone:"Amy Coney Barrett
A judge on the US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, Barrett was on Trump's shortlist for his second Supreme Court nomination, which ultimately went to Justice Brett Kavanaugh in 2018.
"A graduate of Notre Dame University Law School, she clerked for the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia and then spent two decades as a law professor at Notre Dame.
"Barrett, 48, is a favorite of the religious right, and her deep ties to her Catholic faith earned her a grilling from Democrats during her confirmation hearings to the federal bench. California Sen. Dianne Feinstein memorably told her: "The dogma lives loudly within you, and that's a concern."
"Barrett responded: "It's never appropriate for a judge to impose that judge's personal convictions, whether they arise from faith or anywhere else, on the law." "

Update 20 Sep 2020
Trump campaign dismisses Democrats' SCOTUS outrage: A president is elected for four years, not 'three years, nine months'
"After Democrats became infuriated by President Trump's signaling that he will move forward with a pending nominee to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the president's campaign responded by pointing out a commander-in-chief is elected for four years, not an ambiguous three-years-and-change.
"Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh told "The Fox Report" on Sunday that it is the Constitution, not the calendar, that determines when a president may nominate a Supreme Court justice.
" "The Constitution is very clear, the president selects a nominee and the Senate provides advice and consent, those are the rules -- and the only rules -- [and] the president will do his part," Murtaugh said.
" "We elect the president for a term of four years, not three years and nine months, or whatever the Democrats would want the president to behave like." "
"Murtaugh, who previously worked for former Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa., said Trump has a Constitutional duty to fill a vacant seat and ignore any complaints from the other side of the aisle.
"To that extent, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden spoke in Old City, Philadelphia on Sunday and declared that Trump's main impetus for deciding to select a jurist so soon is wielding his executive power.
" "I don't believe the people of this nation will stand for it," the Delawarean claimed. "It's an exercise in raw political power." "
Charles Creitz - Fox News
Watching it happen 100% is beyond hilarity, it's a level of mastery of the political process unprecedented in human history.
I think the primary reason they are so rabidly attacking the "cue phenomanon" is beyond politics, it's the number of times number 8+8+1 bludgeons them with the truth:
