  1. She was picked by the Federalist Society. They gave the downplayer in chief a list of judges with alt right views. Trump is going to try to use her to steal the election.

  2. Barrett micky mouse voice….

  3. Barrett: “I have no view now but when I am confirmed, my wrath will be swift.”
    Durbin: “If you are confirmed. That is what we are here to determine.”
    Barrett: “if that makes it easier for you.”

  4. All AMERICANS have the right to vote rather than take it away

    • I don’t get why felons get their right to vote taken away at all…I hope this blue wave of replacement democrats will make real change for these ex-felons more permanent and get rid of these far reaching protections cops have when they outright murder ppl recklessly.

      She is beyond hope of ever being a “fair” judge. She will be a scourge on the American Public, pushing her right wing religious dogma on us all.

  5. The right to vote should be guaranteed to every American citizen without exception

  6. A felon can’t vote but there’s a felon in the White House.

      @Zebra Zagadore Obama is already out of office and Biden wont win so no felon in the white house

      @Mike Hernandez The only one who’s facing tax evasion and is in debt nearly a half billion dollars is Donald Trump. He is in serious trouble when he no longer has executive privilege to shield him. This explains why he has and will continue to desperately hang onto his presidential mantle, even though the American public will hand him a resounding loss.

      @Zebra Zagadore Wait wait wait. Does Fake News say he’s facing Tax Evasion or Broke, cause you can’t be both dunce. The IRS will go after you for $1 even if you are a a day late so get your lies straight first!

    • @My Pillow Guy. And you continue neglect any crime committed by Trump. Well any actual crime. Not your made up laws

    • No, a felon can’t vote but he can run for president…twice!.

  7. At least she isn’t crying in public about her love of beer.

      *Biden would increase taxes by $4.3 trillion; Trump would cut taxes by $1.7 trillion, watchdog says*
      Oct 7, 2020 https://www.worldtribune.com/biden-would-increase-taxes-by-4-3-trillion-trump-would-cut-taxes-by-1-7-trillion-watchdog-says/

      *Americans under a Joe Biden presidency would pay significantly more in taxes while in a second term President Donald Trump would continue his policy of cutting taxes, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB).*

      Biden’s spending proposals would also add much more to the federal deficit than Trump’s, the CRFB said in a report released Wednesday.

      Biden’s economic policies would increase taxes by about $4.3 trillion while Trump’s would cut taxes by about $1.7 trillion, the CRFB’s report said.

      Under Biden’s plan, the largest tax hike would come from an increase in corporate tax rates to 28 percent from 21 percent, the CRFB said.

      The Democrat candidate said he would increase the top income tax bracket rate to 39.6 percent from 37 percent. Biden would raise capital gains taxes to 39.6 percent from 20 percent for individuals and couples making more than $1 million and he would eliminate the “stepped-up basis” at death on capital gains for higher earners.

      Biden would also increase the payroll tax minimum for Social Security, charge large banks a “financial risk fee,” and have the IRS crack down on tax evasion, according to the CRFB. Biden’s plan also includes a 15 percent minimum tax on “book” profits.

      Trump would extend cuts in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The CRFB also said Trump could support cutting income taxes for those in the middle class, cutting capital gains taxes to 15 percent, indexing capital gains taxes to inflation and cutting the 22 percent marginal income tax rate for individuals to 15 percent.

      With just the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, CRFB’s central and low-end estimates those tax cuts are flat at $1.25 trillion. But with the additional proposals, Trump could potentially cut individual taxes by $2.45 trillion.

    • @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500
      World Tribune is fake news.

      You need to come up with better sources to convince people, spambot.

    • She’ll be the third illegitimate SC justice.

    • @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 LMAO!!!! OK you’re such a gullible puppet.

  8. She has covid-19 but they’re so desperate to get her in that they’re trying to hide it. That’s what I speculate.

    • Her kids spread it at their schools…funny how no one is talking about that. This is why I don’t want my kids sent back to school. They act like our kids are guinea pigs and if they get infected oh well, you’re on your own. School is not liable right?

    • It is entirely possible that she and her family were the vector for the current Republican outbreak. She and her husband were confirmed positive in late August.

      Well she was coughing and a slight gag either virus or she gave her hubby a quickie

  9. More Conservative Hypocrisy…protect guns over humans every time. Originialist should scare thinking Americans…

    Barret walks and talks like a robot.

  11. If you’ve been busted for a marijuana offense, that’s a felony and you can’t own a gun or vote in Florida. This is what happens when you keep voting Republican.

      @rathofturkey desperate people do desperate things. Social issues are a reflection of societal poverty, race,religion blah blah. Have you ever worked in a sweatshop 7 days a week? They can pump trillions into a black hole, but the man using drugs to deal with his ever demanding debt to keep his family fed is the criminal. No way !

      @DRSmetal the GOP’s war on pot has got to stop, by getting rid of GOP

      @Facheer Smasheer believe it or not there are other people reading these posts so maybe my posts are partially for them

  12. She’s doing a lot of coughing

    This person is not apt to take this position.

  14. Everyone should be allowed to vote once they have done their time.

    The only concern Amy should have is the Supreme Court’s sexual predator Cavanaugh

    This woman is so wooden. I feel like She’s from that 16th century.

  17. Her mentor was Scalia, the guy who ruled in favor of Citizens United, gutting the Voting Rights Act, and other terrible decisions.

  18. At this rate, Republicans will soon be nominating brainwashed 12-years-old to serve for life on courts.

  19. She knows that concept is ridiculous. LOL.

  20. what a sick country that never get out of the wild west times…. backward & shameful.
