Senate Confirms ACB; Furious Warren Calls Process ‘Corrupt and Illegitimate’ IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- By a 52-48 Senate vote Monday evening, Judge Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, igniting a backlash from angry Democrats whose fury may have been best represented by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who branded Barrett’s ascension to the high court as a “corrupt and illegitimate process.”

But it was vehemently anti-gun Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut who laid down a veiled threat during his remarks.

As quoted by Fox News, Blumenthal warned his Senate colleagues, “The fact is that our Republican colleagues are shattering the norms and breaking the rules and breaking their word, and there will be consequences. There inevitably are consequences when one person breaks his or her word to another.”

Blumenthal also declared, “Nothing less than everything is at stake. A shift in the balance of the court that will last for decades if we do not correct it – and believe me, there are appropriate measures that should be considered.”

But Republicans stood firm, perhaps showing the kind of backbone conservatives have wanted to see for several years.

Democrats admitted days ago there was little, if anything, they could do to prevent Barrett’s confirmation. It was the fulfillment of an important campaign pledge by Donald Trump in 2016 to bring balance back to the federal court system by nominating qualified constitutional conservatives to fill court vacancies.

But nobody could have foreseen the magnitude of that pivotal pledge four years ago, as the president has filled more than 250 federal court seats and three Supreme Court positions in less than four years.

According to Fox News, the last president to nominate three new high court justices was Ronald Reagan.

From nomination to confirmation, the process took less than 40 days, making the far left even more angry. According to several reports, one of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s last wishes was that her replacement would be appointed by the next president. If Trump wins re-election Nov. 3, that would have taken an impossible four years to fulfill.

CNN wasted no time in taking a dig at the president eight days before the election, making sure to remind listeners that Judge Barrett is “President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee,” as if that were something for which to be ashamed.

Associate Justice Barrett will hit the ground running, with some important cases coming before the court within days. One of those deals with Barack Obama’s “Affordable Care Act,” which many say was not affordable at all. The New York Times also noted other cases “including abortion rights, gay rights, business regulation and the environment.” Interestingly, potential gun rights cases weren’t spotlighted.

But on the horizon could be several Second Amendment cases. Now, with a sure five-vote conservative majority that will not be concerned about a wrong vote by Chief Justice John Roberts, the country could see some cases dealing with gun rights outside of the home, and whether semi-auto modern sporting rifles—the so-called “assault rifles” Democrat Joe Biden and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris want to ban if they win—are protected by the Amendment.

Many believe it was doubt about which way Roberts might vote that caused the court earlier this year to decline hearing any of ten important gun rights cases that were on the table.

Indeed, Alan Gottlieb, founder and executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation, told AmmoLand News via a text message, “The confirmation of Judge Barrett will help make the Second Amendment great again.”

The only Republican voting against confirmation was Sen. Susan Collins of Maine. She is locked in a tight re-election race, the outcome of which could go either way.

As noted by CNN, “Barrett, who is 48 years old, is likely to serve on the court for decades and will give conservatives a 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court, a shift in its makeup that could have dramatic implications for a range of issues that could come before it, including the future of the Affordable Care Act and any potential disputes regarding the 2020 election.”

Even if Trump loses Nov. 3, his lasting legacy will be how he re-shaped the federal courts and the Supreme Court, which is no small feat.

With only days remaining before the election, America’s gun owners are being urged to vote. Their choice now is more clear than ever between a president who has filled federal court vacancies with judges who are likely to support the Second Amendment, and a former vice president who sent a career on Capitol Hill trying to erode it.

Isn’t it sweet? I am bathing in liberal tears!

President Trump swore her in, oh the pizzing,screams, moaning ,gnashing of teeth of the Leftards,it’s sweet music. Now For Trumps fourth and fifth picks, of which the next candidate should be St. Roger T. Benitez. As to Warrens comment, this coming from a Marxist,it has zero Creedence. Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution states: “Section. 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”… Read more »

GMB – actually Justice Thomas did the oath. DJT introduced her with glowing words. It was likely the second best TV moment – first was the announcement of her confirmation in the senate – the dems are still weeping and gnashing their teeth.

Terry

Pocahantas tears! Why doesn’t she complain to the Indian Council?

PS – I’d buy her a canoe if she would actually do that – at least she would finally be doing something productive.

Mystic Wolf

A canoe with a hole in it jyst to let the water out of course, and an extra 200 pounds of steal shot.

Tionico

that’d be a terrible waste of good shot. I think a pile of old brake discs from y scrap heap would be better. They’re only worth about three cents the pound. She’s not worth investing more than that into her future.

Vern

Maybe she is in fast water and her canoe is leaking faster than she can bail.

Arizona – eww – I wouldn’t want ANY bodily secretions from a lib touching my body, it might penetrate and make my poor body do all sorts of weird things.

Piss on Warren and anything she wants!

Stripeseven

An anti-gun Senator from Connecticut says: “There inevitably are consequences when one person breaks his or her word to another.” You mean like taking the Oath of Office, and willingly conspiring with others to deprive citizens of their Constitutional rights? American citizens fully expect Servants that take that Oath, to take it seriously. TITLE 18, U.S.C., SECTION 242 explains “Consequences”…..

RetUSAF

That was Stolen Valor Blumenthal. That POS is totally illegitimate!

musicman44mag

The problem is that government has turned it around. You had it right when you said servants but we now serve them. That needs to change. I don’t hire people to tell me how to do the job. If I am the one hiring then I should be the boss. It doesn’t make sense but if you add the word corruption in there it works every time.

Tionico

He who pays the fiddler calls the tune. Been that way forever.

uncle dudley

Some of the democrat senators sent a threatening letter to the supreme court last year saying that if they didn’t shape up and change their ways the democrats would act to change the court, I guess Warren who taught law at Harvard has forgotten what the constitution is and how members get on the supreme court.
When you go to vote don’t even think about voting for a democrat as they want to take our guns.

GomeznSA

uncle – I suspect that a lot of folks have forgotten about that threat or more likely just ignored it believing that no one could be that vicious. But they have proved just how nasty they are with how they not only attacked Judge Barrett but her family as well.
You are correct regarding what they will do with our guns – but not ‘theirs’ should they gain more power than they already have.

Mystic Wolf

If the satan worshipping DEMONcrats get their way this nation will become a 1984 police state, the people will have no rights and we will be no better than slaves, remember what quid-pro-joe said, “that he will disarm this country every last man and woman. Yeah the DEMONcrats hate the people of this country but are in love with china. And yeah chuckie schemer said that last year, ” if the court does not shape up then congress will have something to say and do about it. Just look at thecway john roberts has been acting!

They want total power so they can destroy our country as we know it. I am pissed with how corrupt everything is on both sides but can you imagine how bad it would be if we had no way to fight back. We would be subjects forced to do what ever they want and obey any law they come up with.

Tionico

We would be subjects forced to do what ever they want and obey any law they come up with.

reminds me of a few places.. some currently in that condition (China, NorthKorea, Venezuela, Iran, Turkey, Cuba, Somalia) and a few that are no longer that way, or at least not quite so much.. ENgland in the time when the pilgrems “got permission” to leave for the New World, the entire Soviet Union, Nazi Germany and then most of Europe.

Yup. I’ve got a Cherokee ancestor, came in to the femily line in Minnesota Territory early 1800’s. So I’m far more “native amierican” (who really aren’t.. cause they kicked out the guys who were here before them) that Faka-a-hontas.

We need that new rule or law passed so the dems cannot stack the court. We also need to protect the electoral college and lets throw in constitutional carry for all of the USA except Hawaii. All the anti gun haters can go there.

No…please…don’t send those pathetic losers here to Hawaii! Send them to China! We have thousands of gun owners here in Hawaii, and are desperately trying to flip this state Red! Support for Trump is growing by leaps and bounds and overall for Conservatives and important values has always been good…but happy to see it growing each month here. If we can vote out the local dirtbag politicians here, we can continue to increase the gun ownership and hopefully…one day soon we can actually start carrying (open & concealed) as law abiding citizens!

During the rapist Bill Clinton and the gay Kenyan administrations, democrats would go to the Senate well at 2 or 3 A.M. and offer “blocks” to be passed.
These “blocks” were lists of 20 or more democrat activist lawyers to be appointed to judgeships, federal attorneys, prosecutor, etc.
The communist democrats did not bother with the Senate reviewing these folks, they just processed them wholesale.
So, the communist democrats know ALL ABOUT “corrupt and illegitimate”.

musicman44mag

I’m tired of how they cry foul when we do the same exact things they have done in the past and claim that we are breaking tradition and laws and anything else they can use to fool their sheep.

Tionico

our government is NOT to be run by a horde of Tevyas holding fast to “truDISHun”. . We arre a nation of laws. Tradition is great but let not that RUN the show. Trump did precisely as the Constitution COMMANDS him: he nominated, submitted to the Senate for review, advise, consent, then APPOINTED a person to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court. To NOT do so would be to be derelict in his DUTY as charged, and as he swore to perform. He IS a man of hisowrd, sometimes to the extreme fury of the Dumbocrats. good on him….

As law professor Alan Dershowitz said: “The Democrats, in the SCOTUS nomination of ACB, failed the “shoe on the other foot” test.

So….was it “corrupt and illegitimate” when the Half Blood Prince appointed
Kagen and Sotomayor, whose accomplishments and qualifications put
together are not the equal of Amy Coney Barrett’s? Or was that “different”?

That was discrimination in the name of equality.

If anyone would know about a corrupt and illegitimate process, it would be the Commie Rat bastard Democrats.

you notice every major democrat has followed bidens total bullshit that Amy was illegaly put on the court . not one mainstream media has ever corrected their lies on this matter.

The Constitution is very clear: Whomever is duly elected president is elected for a 4 year term. Not 2 years, not 3 years, not 3 years and 11 months, but 4 full years. Many previous presidents have waited until their very last days in office to pardon or commute the sentences of various imprisoned Americans, that might have earned the president a lot of negative pushback if this was done earlier during their presidency, but on their very last day in office there is nothing much their critics can do. They are still the duly elected president with all of… Read more »

Demorats only cry when it goes against their plans for us! Cowards, thieves & despots.

I hope all the democrats had nightmares last night after seeing the new supreme court justice take the oath of office with president Trump standing next to her and Judge Thomas.
Now we need to re-elect the president for another four years.

MarkE

This is an obvious and dangerous pattern from the left: Don’t like the President you got? Do away with the Electoral College. Don’t like Supreme Court decisions that are based on legality rather than popularity? Pack it and call it “balance”. Don’t like guns? Do away with the 2nd Amendment. Don’t like people who disagree with you? Remove the freedom of speech provision in the 1st Amendment. Don’t like individuals who have different political views? Use the public school system for liberal indoctrination. Don’t like Senate rules that protect minority input? Ban the filibuster. Don’t like having to defend your… Read more »

It struck me that with Amy on the Court, Biden rigging the election might not be the end of America. If he tries anything, the court might be able to stop him.

We might not have to burn the place down in November. Let’s pray that we don’t.

Love to hear those “progressives” squeal!!!

Reagan actually had four appointments. O’Connor, Scaliness, Rehnquist as Chief Justice, and Kennedy,.
But Rhenquist was “promoted” from an Associate Justice position. There is a good change that someday
Justice Barrett will have a similar “promotion.”  
And it is likely, President Trump will have 3 more nominations during a second term. Justice Breyer,
a socialist, is 87 and in frail health, and Justice Thomas and Justice Alito, both in their 70s. have talked
about resting to give President Trump the ability to appoint younger conservative justices. And Chief
Justice Roberts is not in good health and may also retire.

ras52

Dave, that is good advice. My wife and I voted early and so have most of our family members on both sides. All voted for President Trump! Thanks for a great post.

musicman44mag

and take the house, we really need president Trump to have both houses then we wont be faced with impeachment the day after he is re-elected.

GUNFUN

How incredible that would be!

Tionico

Justice Roberts is not in good health and may also retire. either retire or BE retired. Perhaps the stress of walking on eggshells since he learned he is owned is taking its toll on him. Now the balance is certain he will no longer be useful to his owners, and he’ll know it. They will too. At that point, no point in carrying on his charade. Used to like the guy, but since he decided HE is the one to initiate taxation bills, not the House, I’ve had no respect for him. Sellout. Past his “use by” date. Put him… Read more »

Finnky

Don’t count our justices yet. Dems could hold house, senate and potus for the next two years. Roberts could potentially be replaced by a dem party hack. God forbid.
With his current attitude, could see him retiring in order to “rebalance” the court. Only good I see in that is if it prevents court packing, preserving a modicum of respect for one of our institutions.

Deplorable Bill

Of all the things that we have come to understand about the demoncraps, the thing that most comes to mind is CORRUPTION. Could it be that they are so corrupt that they are blind to it in themselves? Kind of like nose blind to their own common smells.

Maybe now the scotus will FINALLY use the constitution as the rule book it is and reign in congress’s ILLEGAL laws.
