Hearing For SCOTUS Pick Amy Coney Barrett Kicks Off Amid Pleas For Civility From Graham

Lindsey Graham

The Senate Judiciary Committee, headed up by Sen. Lindsey Graham, is officially kicking off its hearing on the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, where if she’s appointed, she will take the seat left vacant by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Graham kicked off the proceedings with a plea for both sides to remain as civil as possible, though Sen. Dianne Feinstein has promised Democrats will grill Barrett over her stance on whether or not the Affordable Care Act is constitutional.

The socially distanced hearing is nothing like any Supreme Court hearing in the past, with the nominee wearing a black face mask in the television split-screen as senators gave their opening statements. Some senators are beaming in virtually as they aim to remain safe from the coronavirus pandemic.

The hearing room, in the past, has been abuzz with hundreds of observers and the occasional outbreak of a protest leading to arrests by the Capitol police. Instead on Monday, the hearing room under strict coronavirus protocols is nearly silent outside of the senators who are speaking.

“This is going to be a long contentious week,” Graham said in his opening statement. “Let’s make it respectful, let’s make it challenging, let’s remember the world is watching.”

What’s Graham referring to here? He’s likely talking about the confirmation hearing of Justice Brett Kavanaugh which got very ugly as Democrats attempted to paint him up to be some sort of sexual predator. Those attempts failed. Miserably.

Feinstein said, “I believe we want this to be a very good hearing,” and went on to state she would do her best to help make the hearing civil as possible, just as Graham requested.

Let’s see if she holds true to her words.

Had to be done.

Donald Trump accomplished more in one term than anybody thought possible. He managed to make even many “never Trump” Republicans see the light, with the way he went about business in the Oval Office. Unfortunately, Trump will not be able to serve a consecutive term and continue to expose government malfeasance. That being said, there’s still a whole lot POTUS can give us before leaving 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on the 20th.

Joe is quite the card, even after all these decades. WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Great movie, terrible idea.

Giving Kamala Harris the title of vice president is pretty awful. Senator was bad enough. But now she’s going to be honored with her name on a school? What’s next? Forget Harriet Tubman and put the woman who slept her way into politics on the $20? From TDW: T.C. Williams High School, well known for its prominent role in the popular Disney film “Remember The Titans”, could soon be renamed as “Kamala Harris High School.” In November, the Alexandria City School Board voted unanimously to remove Williams’ name due to his support of segregation while serving as superintendent of the Alexandria, VA, school system. According to the school, Williams was a “staunch segregationist whose views could not have been more inconsistent with the vibrant, diverse and inclusive place we know today.” Students are being given the chance to vote. The final decision will be made in April. Other options the kids have to choose from are “George Floyd High School” and “Ruth Bader Ginsburg High School.” If it came down to Kamala, George, or Ruth, you’d have to go with RBG High…right?? Here’s a clip from the film… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYp94Kk8AdE
