Amy Coney Barrett Answers Questions Concerning Her Faith, Lifestyle During Second Day Of Confirmation Hearings

Published

on

Judge Amy Coney Barrett started the second day of her confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court by taking on a number of questions about whether or not her faith and lifestyle would influence the decisions she would make if confirmed to the bench.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham asked ACB about her devotion to her Catholic faith, what it feels like to be nominated to SCOTUS, and whether or not she owns a firearm. All of these questions are related to how she might rule when it comes to the Second Amendment and the First Amendment’s protection of freedom of religion.

“We do own a gun,” Barrett, who serves on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, answered when Graham asked her about her “personal views about the topic.”

Barrett answered “yes” when Graham asked if she “could fairly decide a case,” even though she owns a gun.

Graham asked Barrett if she could “set aside whatever Catholic beliefs you have” regarding cases before the Supreme Court.

“I can, and I have done that in my time on the 7th Circuit,” the judge said. “If I stay on the 7th Circuit, I’ll continue to do that. If I’m confirmed to the Supreme Court, I will do that.”

Barrett went on to speak about how she and her family attempted to go on a media blackout for the sake of her mental health, but stated she’s well aware of the the “caricatures floating around” about her lifestyle and Catholic faith.

“We knew that our lives would be combed over,” Barrett said. “We had to decide whether these difficulties would be worth it. What sane person would go through that if there wasn’t a benefit on the other side?”

The judge said she decided to accept the nomination.

“I should serve my country, and my family is all in on that because they share my belief in the rule of law,” Barrett stated.

Barrett is proving to be a difficult target for the Democrats to take down. She’s not a man, so they can’t really do the sexual assault angle, which is their primary weapon of choice. There’s nothing scandalous about her because she’s so devout to her faith and lives according to those principles, thus her record is clean.

This is why they’ve attacked her faith. It’s all they’ve got. But this is not working out well in their favor. It makes them look discriminatory and intolerant. It seems like this SCOTUS pick is a slam dunk.

Disney Slaps ‘Peter Pan,’ ‘Dumbo,’ Other Classic Films With New Content Warnings

Published

Disney has decided to continue walking down the “woke” path, attempting to stay relevant so they can milk the rest of humanity for all the dollars possible by tossing some disclaimers on a number of classic films warning that some scenes in the movies contain “negative depictions” and “mistreatment of people or cultures.” Good grief. If Disney didn’t own two-thirds of the world at this point, it would become obvious that making this choice to “go woke” would result in the company “going broke,” but since they do seem to have their hand in everything, nothing is going to come of them doing this. via Daily Wire: “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together,” says the 12-second disclaimer, which cannot be skipped. The films include “Dumbo” from 1941, “Peter Pan” from 1953, “Swiss Family Robinson” from 1960, and “The Aristocats” from 1970. The disclaimer also directs viewers to a website titled “Stories Matter,” which says, “Because happily ever after doesn’t just happen.” “As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are in the process of reviewing our library and adding advisories to content that includes negative depictions or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the site says. “We can’t change the past, but we can acknowledge it, learn from it and move forward together to create a tomorrow that today can only dream of.” Disney went on to explain the reason for slapping the warnings on the content: Dumbo “The crows and musical number pay homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans on Southern plantations. The leader of the…

Top Astrophysicist Says Asteroid Could Smash Into Earth Day Before Election

Published

on

So far in the year 2020 we’ve had a pandemic featuring an age discriminating virus, race riots, the government admitting UFOs are real, murder hornets, and the wackiest presidential race of all time. Surely there’s nothing else this year could throw at us, right? Wrong. Apparently, according to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, there’s a strong possiblity an asteroid is going to smash into the earth the day before the election. Who had asteroid on their 2020 Bingo card? via Fox News: An asteroid with a diameter the size of a refrigerator could strike the Earth the day before the November election, according to celebrity scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson — but it’s not large enough to do any serious damage. The famed astrophysicist said the space rock, known as 2018VP1, is hurtling towards Earth at a speed of 25,000 miles per hour and may clip the planet on Nov. 2. “It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov. 2, the day before the Presidential Election,” he wrote on Instagram. But he added that the flying object is nothing to lose sleep over since “it’s not big enough to cause harm.”⠀⠀⠀ NASA already identified the asteroid that is rocketing toward earth, but stated the chances of it actually hitting the earth are currently less than one percent. “It currently has a 0.41% chance of entering our planet’s atmosphere, but if it did, it would disintegrate due to its extremely small size,” the organization stated. While this rock may not hit earth, or even if it does, it might now do much in the way of damage, but I’ve seen enough scary movies to know that when stuff like this happens, strange occurrences follow. So, sure, you may not have to worry about the asteroid, but if it passes by our planet and you suddenly…
