Morning Greatness: Senate Begins Confirmation Hearings for Amy Coney Barrett

Good Monday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president delivers remarks at a Make America Great Again Rally in Sanford, Florida


Two minutes of hate:

Today kicks off the senate confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett. Here’s her opening statement if you want to read it. The hearing will be a hybrid of virtual and in-person questioning and persecution. Senator Kamala Harris, one of the nastier questioners in the Kavanaugh sh!t show, will attend virtually. I wonder how rude and obnoxious she will be to ACB?  Poor ACB is going to get dragged through the mud. The Democrats are already agitating for more paperwork.

It seems like a good time to review some basic vocabulary since I’ve been noticing quite a bit of word games from our information gate keepers.  Filling a vacancy is not “court packing” as Democrats and their media handmaidens are trying to shove down our throats. “Court packing” is expanding the number of seats on the court, which is what the Democrats want to do. They would come out and clearly state they have no intentions of  packing the court but they won’t. Why? As we all know the Democrats change the rules when they can’t win and they are very upset that Trump has filled so many vacancies on the SCOTUS. Elections have consequences!

Over in Denver, Colorado we have a murder of a Trump supporter by a lefty. The alleged shooter was a “security guard” for a media outlet who was not licensed to be a “security guard.” The murder took place after Black Lives Matter/Antifa combatants confronted the attendees at a Patriot Prayer rally. Lee Keltner, a local hat maker and veteran sprayed pepper spray on the shooter and in response the fake security guard shot him dead. Keltner’s mother posted on Facebook: “My son Lee was at the patriot rally today in Denver,” she wrote to the group. “After the rally a person on the BLM and Antifa side went up to him said a few nasty words then shot him in the head. He was murdered because he backed the police.”

      American Greatness, Are you listening…?

      • Thanks. We’ll see what we can do about that. Just to reiterate what I’ve said here and there elsewhere, we dropped Disqus because it was causing a significant lag in page load times and we could not control nor were we seeing a single penny from Disqus ads.

  2. On court packing, read The Athenian Democracy in the Age of Demosthenes (1991 Blackwell) by Mogens Herman Hansen (tr. J. A. Cook Danish).

    At the end of the Athenian democracy all 6,000 citizens sat on their supreme court the Areopagus. The Athenian democracy fell at the hands of mob rule as will the American democracy. The American Founding Fathers rightfully feared mob rule – and now we’re gonna learn why.

    HAPPY COLUMBUS DAY!. Imagine if the New World Paradise discovered by the Saxon Vikings had remained so for the half millennium until the Papist Columbus arrived! 1492: Paradise Conquered

  3. I hope the Senate hearings descend into a total sh- show. I hope democrats start screaming at the sky.
