Democrats continued their healthcare forum during today's confirmation hearing for Judge Amy Coney Barrett. This came despite:
Judge Barrett correctly says that Obamacare case currently before the Supreme Court turns on the issue of severability, which was not an issue in the previous ACA cases. Someone should tell the Democrats.— RNLA ⚖️ (@TheRepLawyer) October 13, 2020
Barrett asks, “What sane person person would go through [this] process without a clear benefit on the other side?” The benefit she says, is the rule of law and an opportunity to serve her country.— Gabby Orr (@GabbyOrr_) October 13, 2020
Earlier today, the Senate Judiciary Committee completed opening statements in the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett. That needs to be said because, listening to Democrats, you would think it was a healthcare candidates' forum in New Hampshire. (Hint their message was: "Trump bad, Obamacare good.") RNLA live tweeted the hearing and will live tweet the Senators questioning of Judge Barrett over the next two days. Below are some highlights from the RNLA’s Twitter (@thereplawyer) and others:
Senate Judiciary Dems stuck to Sen. Schumer’s talking points (at least for today), but tellingly none of them disavowed the anti-religious, anti-woman, despicable attacks on Judge Barrett made by their mainstream media surrogates and progressive allies.

In the most striking moment of last night’s Vice Presidential Debate, Senator Kamala Harris refused to answer on court packing. But first, let us briefly address Senator Harris' citing of President Lincoln not filling a Supreme Court vacancy 27 days before an election.Read more
Today the Washington Post wrote a hit piece on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s religion. The writer, Emma Brown, is a familiar name to those who work on confirmations:
Democrats are laundering their (admittedly weak) anti-religious smear of Amy Coney Barrett through Emma Brown, the same reporter they used to launch their massive and media-coordinated anti-Kavanaugh operation that so many Americans found so despicable. https://t.co/WRVyuD2WQ1— Mollie (@MZHemingway) October 7, 2020
The left has always seen the courts as way to get around the will of the people, whether it is their duly elected legislators or the voters themselves. This cycle, led by Marc Elias who played a key role in the Russia collusion hoax, the left has filed lawsuit after lawsuit to overturn the will of voters. But that still is not enough for the left:
The craziest part of twitter are progressives who complain that I don't litigate enough.— Marc E. Elias (@marceelias) October 6, 2020
I'm sorry if the 70+ cases we have brought this cycle and the three dozen we are currently litigating aren't addressing your particular issue.
You do know there are other lawyers, right?
The prevailing narrative pushed by the Left is that the expansion of vote-by-mail should take place indiscriminately without additional safeguards to protect against fraud.
In response, the Republican National Committee has been fighting to preserve the integrity of our elections. Just last week, the RNC experienced victories in Arizona, Iowa, Maine, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Ohio.Read more
Today, RNLA hosted a powerful webinar on Judge Amy Coney Barrett featuring the Network of enlightened Women's Karin Lips and The Cato Institute's Ilya Shapiro. The event came as Democrats are even using the President’s COVID-19 diagnosis as a reason to delay hearings on Judge Barrett’s confirmation. The reality is that the Democrats and their liberal allies will go to extreme lengths of any means to defeat or delay Judge Barrett’s nomination.
One of the worst tactics utilized by liberals is attacking Judge Barrett based on her gender. As Karin Lips explains: "Popular feminists today are quick to mock, delegitimize, and pressure conservative women into silence. To many, we are 'gender traitors' once we speak out or support conservatives in public life."Read more
Voting is officially underway for the 2020 general election across the country. In states like Pennsylvania, there is concern about how recent changes to state law will affect the election, especially when considering the numerous problems that happened during the primary earlier this year. In both the District of Columbia and in New York City, voting already seems to be just as fraught with issues as it was during the primaries.Read more
The Democrat Party is as radical as it has ever been and last night at the Presidential debate Joe Biden declared “I am the Democratic Party.” While President Trump and to a lesser extent Chris Wallace tried to pin down the former Vice President, he refused on such issues as court packing, or the issue of increasing the Supreme Court beyond nine members. How extreme an issue is this? Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders does not back it.
That was Joe Biden’s position as well in 2019. Yet now he refuses to answer the question.
Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement responding to former Vice President Joe Biden's refusal to answer the question about court packing:
"[P]acking the Supreme Court would be a wholesale attack on the independence of the Judiciary. The message from Joe Biden is clear, he will pick as many Supreme Court Justices as it takes to get the judicial outcomes that he demands. For Biden, as someone who spent a lifetime in the Senate, including his stint at the Senate Judiciary Committee, to so cavalierly dismiss judicial independence is shocking and revealing about his true character. While some claim that they didn’t learn anything at the debates, the sad truth is, we learned that a Joe Biden presidency will not be constrained by the fundamental minority rights that were set forth by the Constitution and James Madison.”Read more
As November approaches, Democrats should be starting to realize that their push to implement universal vote-by-mail may not have been such a good idea. A large number of ballots have been lost or rejected, and "emergency" changes to election laws under the guise of the COVID-19 pandemic put mail-in ballots at an even greater risk of not being counted. Recent allegations of vote fraud in Minnesota and Texas show just how dangerous the combination of expanding universal vote-by-mail and legalizing ballot harvesting could be to the security of our elections.Read more
