Chairman Graham “Judge Barrett Deserves a Vote and She Will Receive a Vote” Senate to Vote on Barrett Nomination Next Week.

Washington, DC...Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement after committee Democrats announced they would boycott the vote on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination. On Judge Barrett: “Judge Amy Coney Barrett is one of the most highly qualified people to ever be nominated to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. She will faithfully apply the law to the facts without personal agenda and fully understands the difference between an impartial judge and a political activist. I am very glad that the American people during the hearings were able to see the tremendous capabilities and qualifications of Judge Barrett.





“The hearings served a valuable purpose in letting the world know how talented and prepared Judge Amy Coney Barrett is to serve on the Supreme Court. Judge Barrett was repeatedly challenged on the law, her disposition and capabilities. When it came to the law, she soared. She has a judicial disposition that should be the gold standard for all future nominees. And she has led a consequential, well-rounded life apart from the law. It was clear after Judge Barrett’s questioning why the ABA rated her well qualified, the highest rating possible.

“Finally, I appreciate the fact the hearings did not deteriorate as they have in the past and become a circus.”

On Committee Democrats boycotting Judge Barrett’s vote:

“Judge Barrett deserves a vote and she will receive a vote. Judge Barrett deserves to be reported out of committee and she will be reported out of committee. Judge Barrett deserves to be on the Supreme Court and she will be confirmed.

“She is one of the most prepared people to have ever been nominated for the Supreme Court. America will be fortunate to have her as a member of the highest court in the land.

“As to my Democratic colleagues’ refusal to attend the markup, that is a choice they are making. I believe it does a disservice to Judge Barrett who deserves a vote, up or down.

“The nomination process took a dark turn in 2013 when the Democrats changed the rules of the Senate for District and Circuit court nominees requiring a simple majority vote. My Democratic colleagues chose to engage in a partisan filibuster of Justice Gorsuch for the first time in U.S. history requiring the changing of the rules regarding Supreme Court nominations. As I said in 2013, I fear over time the rules changes will have a chilling effect on the judiciary and create greater divisions within the Senate.”

Graham is such a hypocrite. You can bet there will be changes in the Supreme Court process after the election to insure it is balanced.

Stunning fact: 12 GOP senators on Judiciary Committee who voted to advance Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination represent 9 million fewer Americans than 10 Dems who boycotted vote.

      Founders were geniuses in balancing not only power between branches of government but also between urban and rural. Urban may have more votes but by definition they are blind to rural issues.

      Not only that but they cannot feed, cloth, provide energy, building materials or anything to actually take care of their own needs.

      Without rural America and those actually willing to do physical labor the idiots in the cities with the alphabet soup after their names would starve.

      Might be good for them to actually think about that once and a while.

            Barett is unqualified to be a justice. She has been a judge for only 2 years.
            She also is a ultra conservative Catholic of a sect the church has said does not reflect Catholic values. This is best termed as a cult.
            She rejects the 13,14,15 amendments of the Constitution, because of her roots in the South- Louisiana which still rejects the end of the seditious Civil War between the states.

            At least 2 of thg last SCOTUS justices were confirmed by a one party vote, this makes her nomination a rejection of any bipartisan approval.
            Graham bull dozed all the rules today, the Republicans are a lawless bunch, McConnel by packing the courts, ignoring the Constitution, and Graham by ignoring Senate rules. If there are laws, rules the Republicans ignore them.

            The 3 justices nominated by dump are illegitimate because his presidency is illegitimate because of voter purges, and vote terminal irregularities in Wi, Mi, Pa when in 2016 these terminals in Black precincts did not recorn a choice for president, yet the votes were tallied by the GOP Sec of States, even tho the results were disputed because of the non votes. bush's nominees- Alito and Roberts also are illegitimate due to the illegitimacy of bush who lost the 2000 election, by all forensic vote examination by 3 sources- crediable news papers., and a university.

            So we have 5 illegitimate SCOTUS justices.
            The Republicans have stolen our Democracy, and packed the courts to ensure a conservative corporate friendly anti consumer /citizen court.

            Our courts, the best $ can buy.

              Well you should become involved in politics, maybe run for congress, they could use a smart guy like you.
              No doubt the democrats with your knowledge of all things under the definition of our constitution would all back your run to the House or Senate. Who knows, you spread your cheeks like Kamala did her legs, you too could be a candidate for the White House.

              Oh man, it's a shame you and Adam Schiff didn't get together with your "Overwhelming Evidence" of why she's not qualified. All the Republicans would of started crying like you and dropped the entire process.
              Or maybe they did this because of democrats trying to overturn the 2016 Elections even before the Election started? For not a peaceful transfer? For not ONCE try working with this administration? For not helping the American people, like the stimulus check? For not trying to help our Country? For only working for themselves to be back in the WH?
              Maybe....

                2-3 years as a judge is not enough time on the bench to be considered for the highest court in the land. Her "Christian Sharia" views are scary enough, but what worries me most is that she is bought and paid for by large corporations. Take a look at her judicial record, really frightening!

                  There are no qualifications to be a supreme court justice. Probably need to be a citizen. Barrett is a great choice.

"New York City’s securities industry posted its most profitable first half to a year in more than a decade, helping government coffers, even as the coronavirus pandemic and a resulting recession battered the U.S. economy, the state’s comptroller said.

A surge in trading and underwriting activity drove pretax profits up to $27.6 billion, nearly eclipsing earnings reported for all of last year, Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said in a report Thursday. While it was the industry’s best first half since 2009, he said, the slow recovery many other sectors are experiencing may hurt results going forward.

This year’s increase “helps our state and city budgets because the securities industry provides an outsized source of revenue, but the rising profits on Wall Street are disconnected from the pain being felt on Main Street,” DiNapoli said in a statement, calling for another round of economic stimulus by the federal government. “Wall Street’s growth can only be sustained if there is broad economic recovery.”

Bank executives have been urging lawmakers to approve another round of fiscal stimulus, saying the economic recovery would be hampered without it. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are “just about there” on a deal for a coronavirus relief package even as outstanding differences are still being negotiated.

Traders at Wall Street’s five biggest banks, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which reported third-quarter earnings last week, added $24 billion more to their companies’ coffers in 2020 than they did a year ago.

Even with profits climbing, banks have restarted job cuts, abandoning no-layoff policies put in place as the pandemic began to intensify earlier this year. Wall Street is on pace to lose 7,300 jobs this year, almost half the positions added since 2013, DiNapoli said.

Firms set aside almost 5% more for bonuses in the first half of 2020 than they did a year earlier, but bonus sizes “will depend heavily on economic activity in the second half of the year,” according to the comptroller’s report. “As the larger securities businesses are embedded within bank holding companies where profitability has been declining, the overall bonus pool is likely to be affected.”

Even the Pope has caved to the sinful Left! What does theCatholic church really stand for? ACB is a Catholic, and my guess is that she has accepted Jesus Christ into her life, then the poor Pope comes out with this sad news! I’m confused and if your a Catholic help us out, because something is array with this church!
