Rarely has our nation seen a judge more competent and qualified to serve on the Supreme Court than Amy Coney Barrett. During her confirmation hearing, she held me in thrall with the magnificence of her mind. Only once before has anyone inspired the thought, “Greatness walks amongst us.” His name is Trey Gowdy. In Amy Coney Barrett, I feel the same awe and chills once again.
With Amy’s confirmation, Lady Justice will no longer peek from underneath her blindfold. No longer will there be a finger surreptitiously pushing down on one side of her Scales of Justice.
When Barrett’s Senate confirmation comes, and it will on Monday, we Americans can breathe a little easier knowing that Justice in America has been protected for decades to come with Amy sitting on the Supreme Court alongside Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch.
Despite Mrs. Barrett being, “The most impressive judicial nominee I’ve ever seen,” the Democrats played hooky. They cheated themselves out of being part of history and disgusted us, their constituents.
We pay them $174,000 per year to do their job. Instead, they refused to do their job, boycotting the committee vote. Like sulking children, they propped posters of people who supposedly depended on Obamacare for their healthcare in their chairs in the committee room. Pathetic.
“They’re not angry because this process isn’t fair,” observed Senator Michael Lee, “but because it is.”
Who was absent from the vote? Keep this list in mind when they come up for re-election.
- Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA)
- Senator Patrick Leahy (VT)
- Senator Dick Durbin (IL)
- Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (RI)
- Senator Amy Klobuchar (MN)
- Senator Christopher A. Coons (DE)
- Senator Richard Blumenthal (CT)
- Senator Mazie Hirono (HI…whom I would like to ask if she has ever sexually harassed or abused anyone.)
- Senator Cory Booker (NJ)
- Senator Kamala Harris (CA)
There was a note of triumph in Senator Graham’s voice when he declared, “We did it. We did it. Judge Barrett’s nomination is going to the floor. I hope you look back on this time on the committee and say, ‘I was there when it mattered,’ and you were.”
Pray for Justice Barrett, for her husband, Jesse, her children, Emma, Vivian, Tess, John Peter, Liam, Juliet and Benjamin and for the Republican Senators who vote on Monday to confirm her nomination to the Supreme Court.
And, as always, pray for President Trump.
