Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination has been moved forward by the Senate Judiciary Committee with a date for a final vote set for October 26.
The vote to advance the nomination was absent of the presence of Democrats as they all opted to boycott it over their feelings that ACB shouldn’t have been nominated this close to the presidential election.
Go ahead and weep, Mr. Liberal. Here’s a tissue.
All Republicans voted in person.
Before the vote, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham of South Carolina warned that Democrats “are going to regret it” and said it would further degrade the confirmation process.
The confirmation of Judge Barrett is a huge step in preserving the liberties we’re afforded in the Constitution. With her being an originalist in the interpretation of our founding document, many of the policies and laws liberals pass that go beyond the scope of what is allowed will be struck down. Any attempts to strip rights away will also be struck down.
Now, if we can only get Trump in the White House for four more years.
