While the Democratic Party is scrambling to discredit President Trump’s nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court, there is really no debate. For example, AP just published a story saying that Barrett belonged to a Catholic organization that “hold men are divinely ordained as the “head” of the family and faith.” Oh WOW, stop the presses! Seriously, Barrett already has been vetted and confirmed by the Senate as a jurist on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Having said that, the relentless personal attacks on Barrett are par for the course. They are shameful. All this is a sign of our times when elected officials care nothing about the law or integrity, but everything about tearing a person down.
A White House source sent me the following information about Judge Barrett that may be helpful in informing and equipping you as a foundational basis that brings both facts and understanding to who Judge Barret is and why she is qualified to sit on the highest court of the land. From the White House: “Judge Barrett’s extensive experience as a professor and litigator, record of academic success, and outstanding judicial record make her an excellent choice to serve on the Supreme Court. Judge Barrett has demonstrated a steadfast dedication to upholding the Constitution as written, and not legislating from the bench. Judge Barrett’s excellent judicial record shows she will protect the rights of Americans and defend the rule of law.
“Judge Barrett’s character and work ethic have earned her awards and bipartisan praise from the legal community. Judge Barrett’s colleagues at Notre Dame Law School signed a letter supporting her 2017 nomination, calling her “a model of the fair, impartial and sympathetic judge.” In 2017, a bipartisan group of law professors – including professors from Harvard and Stanford and other law schools around the country – urged the Senate Judiciary Committee to confirm Judge Barrett to the Seventh Circuit, describing her work as “rigorous, fair-minded, respectful, and constructive.” The American Bar Association rated Judge Barrett as “well qualified” in 2017.
“Since 2017, Judge Barrett has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit after she was nominated by President Trump and confirmed on a bipartisan vote. Judge Barrett was appointed by Chief Justice John Roberts to sit on the Advisory Committee on Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, where she served from 2010 to 2016. After graduating from law school, Judge Barrett clerked for D.C. Circuit Judge Laurence Silberman and for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.” Since the Senate already approved her for the Seventh Circuit Court, Judge Barrett should have no obstacle to the Supreme Court, except the ongoing obstruction that has become the hallmark of the Democratic Party. Despite what you hear or read, this is a Matthew 24:4 moment: “Take heed that no man deceive you.” The constitution is at stake.
