Trump Nominates Barrett for SCOTUS

Sorry for going dark yesterday. I was in final consideration for the SCOTUS pick. As you can see, the President went another way.

US President Donald Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett, a favourite of social conservatives, to be the new Supreme Court justice.

Speaking by her side at the White House Rose Garden, Mr Trump described her as a “woman of unparalleled achievement”.


After graduating from Notre Dame University Law School in Indiana, she clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia. In 2017, she was nominated by Mr Trump to the Chicago-based 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

She is an outstanding pick. If there is one thing that Trump has proven to be very capable of, it’s choosing Supreme Court Justices. His previous two picks have been outstanding and this one is too.

Given that the Senate confirmed her just three years ago, there shouldn’t be a need for much of a confirmation hearing. There will be, of course, but it’s just theater with Republicans trying to goad Democrats into bashing a Catholic Midwestern woman and the Democrats taking the bait.

  1. Jason

    Hey John Foust, are you contacting Pelosi and telling her its wrong to read minds and predict things about other’s actions and intentions? Or do you just hypocriticaly do that to a few here?

  2. Kevin Scheunemann

    What disgusting leftistd are doing to the Christian mother of 7 is already awful and disgusting.

    Nord and JJF cheer the disgust.

  3. Le Roi du Nord

    You are making stuff up again, k. Isn’t that contrary to your false witness rule?

  4. Mar

    What rule of your’s, Le Roi, is it when you blatantly lie and then blame others for your lies?
    Or is it possible you have no set of values, Le Roi?

  5. jjf

    Kev, isn’t is the evangelicals who are hating her Catholic faith lately?

    Jason, I can’t respond to you because I’m just soooo gosh-darn-mad about your doxxing!  When will it ever end?  Will it end when you get enough attention?  Will it end when you feel powerful enough about your arguments that you won’t need to rely on personal insults?  Will it end when Mar and Kevin properly identify and admit your doxxing, and denounce it?

  6. Jason

    So it’s just hypocritically to a few here. Glad you’re starting to be honest… might be a way to earn some respect.

  7. jjf

    Hypocritically? That’s an adjective. You mean “hypocrisy” or “hypocritical”?  

    But you really wanted me to be mad, right?  That was your intent?

    Respect.  Tell me more.  Tell me how you’re respectful, how you demonstrate respect.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    No Evangelicals that I know of.

    We recognize godless leftists as the systemic threat to the very foundations of the country.

  9. Jason

    >Hypocritically? That’s an adjective. You mean “hypocrisy” or “hypocritical”?
    Fuck now I have to give lessons to a Geek Squad dummy? Hypocritically as in “You Hypocritically apply your standard to a few here”. Do you understand it yet?

  10. Le Roi du Nord

    What’s the lie, mar?

  11. Mar

    Le Roi,i have pointed dozens of lies you have told over the past 6 months.
    Pick a lie, any lie.

  12. Le Roi du Nord

    So once again, you have nothing.

  13. Mar

    Le Roi, if your brains were gasoline, you wouldn’t be able to run a piss ant’s go-kart 2 laps around a single Cheerio.

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    Wow, how many 12 packs of ice beer did you need to come up with that snappy comeback? However many it took, it isn’t making you smarter.

  15. Mar

    You are a very delusional person, Le ROI. Roi.
    You really need help.
    Sadly, you are a typical liberal. Delusional. A Liar. Blame other people for your dishonesty. A very dishonest person. No integrity.
    Yes, a typical liberal.
    Except, you don’t support looting and rioting, will give you credit for that.
    Unless you are lying again.

  16. jjf

    Jason, adverb or adjective, who here spends more time doxxing than you?

  17. Mar

    I volunteer as the biggest doxxer here for supporting doxxing by liberals against conservatives.

  18. Mar

    I should have said I volunteer jjf as the biggest doxxer.

  19. Kevin Scheunemann

    Why aren’t you liberals attacking Pelosi and Biden for being Catholic with same passion your leftist ilk does to Amy Coney Barrett?

    This is really about jjf and Nord protecting the Buchenwald-like baby killing abortion camps.

    You 2 like pelosi and biden because they openly defy and reject their Catholic faith. So this is about your bigotry against true Christians.

  20. Jason

    >Jason, adverb or adjective, who here spends more time doxxing than you?

    Well, what a great discussion you hold with others.

    You’re wrong
    No I’m not, here’s why
    Whatever, why do you do this?

    Respect is earned, your mum and dad should have taught you that as a little one.

    Oh, and since I spend 0 time doxxing, everyone here spends more time at it than I.  Grow up, please.

  21. dad29

    pelosi and biden because they openly defy and reject their Catholic faith. So this is about your bigotry against true Christians.

    Yup.  The Sanhedrin really, really, really, liked Judas, too.

    Their bigotry goes beyond ‘true Christians’, friend.  They despise Right Order.  Granted, Christianity rightly understood is the world’s progenitor of Right Order (Logos); but elements of Right Order can be found in other religions.

    As you know, Logos is the key.

  22. jjf

    Dad29, quit playing, you know Kevin is biting his tongue about Catholics.

    And there’s the magical Capital Letters.  Are those like glitter?

    Jason, you’ve spent lots and lots of time doxxing people, right?  Zero time, really?  Mar, I’ve detected a lying liar!  Was it on the clock?  Built a spreadsheet to track the posting times of your beloveds?  A little chart or two, a written dossier, with links embedded?  Cork board with red strings between post-its?  Be honest.

  23. penquin

    there shouldn’t be a need for much of a confirmation hearing

    Don’t know why they are even gonna go through with the farce of these hearings – the GOP in the Senate has already cut their deals in the smoky back room, and are gonna ram this pick through before the election makes it even more uncomfortable for them then it already is.

  24. Mar

    jjf, for me that would be quite impossible since I don’t own a computer and don’t know how to make a spread sheet. As far as being on the clock, I set my own hours and I really don’t care when you post something here.
    But nice try.

  25. Mar

    Isn’t politics great penquin?
    Of course the Democrats are so honorable and they would never do the same thing.

  26. Kevin Scheunemann


    I like Amy because she upholds part of catholic faith I am in agreement with.

    Abortion, marriage under God’s design, objeftive truth Jesus is her Savior.

    Yet, you praise Biden, Pelosi, for rejecting their catholic faith openly? Are you only looking for catholic hypocrites?

  27. Mar

    I guess when Amy Coney-Barrett cannot be targeted for her moral values and the way she led her life, the liberals have to attack her religion.
    How shameful.

  28. Jason

    What about those hypocritical liberal politicians wanting to set up term limits for the Supreme Court.  How have they historically voted for term limits for themselves?

  29. jjf

    Mar, I’m sure you’ve read Jason’s comments where he’s graphed and charted when he thinks I’m online and posting here, and also where he’s suggested I’m cheating on billing for clients.  You know, all part of his doxxing.  Can’t argue facts, thinks personal attacks are important.  That’s why I asked “was it on the clock.”  Again, talking to Jason, not to Mar.  Not all is about Mar.

  30. Jason

    >I’m sure you’ve read Jason’s comments where he’s graphed and charted when he thinks I’m online and posting here,

    He hasn’t because I have said that.  You’re lying about things – it does not help your respect issue.

    > Can’t argue facts, thinks personal attacks are important.  

    I argue facts with you all day every day.  You’re the one who pulls out your little victim card when you’re at a loss.

  31. Jason

    >He hasn’t because I have NOT said that.

  32. jjf

    You haven’t said what, Jason?  You haven’t commented about when you think I’m online, hour by hour?

  33. Jason

    >You haven’t said what, Jason?

    I quoted it dumbass.

    >You haven’t commented about when you think I’m online, hour by hour?

    That’s not what you said.

  34. Mar

    Well jjf, I think you need to to better writing.
    But you still have not said that liberal who doxx conservatives and protest at people’s personal homes is wrong.

  35. jjf

    Jason, so how do you dox to determine someone’s likely posting times?  Let’s hear about your research process.

    Me saying “graphed and charted” is the wording you want to chase, but you avoid the central issue…  which is that you’re doxxing in order to bully people, and it’s all about respect that needs to be earned before it is given.

  36. Jason

    >Me saying “graphed and charted” is the wording you want to chase

    Still wrong.

    >which is that you’re doxxing in order to bully people

    Wrong again.

  37. jjf

    Feel free to explain yourself, Jason.  Are you playing innocent?

  38. jjf

    Hmm.  Jason can’t admit to what he did do.  Doxxing?  I think so.

  39. Jason

    Sorry Foust, but I don’t need to explain myself to you or anyone else. You are wrong in what you said, I quoted it what you said, I’m not going to waste my precious time going deeper with you.


    Oh, and just so we’re on the same page… I have not doxxed you.
