As we watch the ongoing Senate Judiciary Committee reviewing the qualifications of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, we are learning more about the senators and their political agendas than we are about the nominee herself. That is a dis-service to both the position Judge Barrett is nominated to fill and the job of the Supreme Court.

Engraved above the main entrance of the Supreme Court Building in Washington DC are the words “Equal Justice Under the Law.” The Court, described by Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughs in 1932 as “distinctively American in concept and function,” is designed to ensure the promise of equal justice under law and to act as guardian and interpreter of the Constitution. Based on the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings in the past with Justice Kavanaugh and now with Appellate Judge Barrett’s nomination, it is obvious that there is more a concern about political results than the law and Constitution which are the two issues that should be the very purpose of the hearing.

America is dependent on a fair and tempered court of arbitration to assure “the administration of justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich,….” as is described in the Supreme Court oath of office. But there is little in the questions being asked of Judge Barrett as she faces the 22 senators seeking to understand her legal knowledge, temperament and philosophy. Yet this is the job of the senate committee, to assure us that she will faithfully perform those duties should she be selected to fill the seat vacated by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Instead of delving into her remarks such as “Courts have a vital responsibility to the rule of law, which is critical to a free society. But courts are not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in our public life,” Democrat senators have chosen to quiz her on how she will vote in up-coming cases such as a pivotal Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) case or cases involving abortion and the renowned Roe vs Wade decision.

The line of questions being asked by the Democrat inquisitors clearly notes their focus is on politics and not jurisprudence. This was patently obvious with Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Ca) who said “Health care coverage for millions of Americans is at stake,” and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s (D-Del.) who opined that Judge Barrett is “a judicial torpedo aimed” at Obamacare. None of these issues have anything to do with the Supreme Court nominee’s job or responsibility and yet this was the tone of the first day of the judicial hearing.

In yet other comments and questions it was obvious from the Democrat contingent in the hearing that they want the nominee to foreshadow the decisions she might make on controversial cases without the benefit of evidence or considering all sides of these cases. These were disturbing questions considering that they were coming from practicing lawyers such as Sen. Kamala Harris- D, Calif., who is also the Democrat vice presidential candidate.

In framing their remarks and questions these members have already determined what the outcome should be, putting them in the position of both judge and jury. This is the very essence of what the Supreme Court was created to prevent.

The nation is being poorly served as its laws and Constitution are being sacrificed on the altar of politics and partisan expediency in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Fortunately, Judge Barett has her eyes focused on the core principles of the highest court in the land as she explained in her opening day remarks - “The policy decisions and value judgements of government must be made by the political branches elected by and accountable to the people. The public (and Congress) should not expect courts to do so, and courts should not try.”

Have been watching these hearings and WOW , if there was ever a reason to run from the Democratic Party , you got one now . Should be required viewing for all students high school on up through college .

drewski

While their is no religious test for the supreme court i find it interesting if this latest judge is confirmed it will be 7 Catholics and two of the Jewish faith, nary a single protestant to be seen. Is that representative of the general population? It is vital to the political health of the nation that the supreme court be seen as fair and impartial, "packing" the court with catholic conservatives seems to me at odds with that.

David Collins

Oh Mr. drewski , you are nothing but predictable . First of all , you really need to look up the meaning of court packing . This is not it .

Let’s have a Martin L King moment here and not judge by their race or religion but by the content of their character . You do remember King , don’t you ? You do not select justices to represent the demographics of our country . The selection is based on best qualified to be fair , as unbiased as possible and adhere to the constitutional values of our country . The activist judge just died and need not be repeated . By the way , Catholic Conservatives are not particularly common but are growing in numbers . Could be the result of their education taking root . Something that public schools and LA Colleges sorely lack .

drewski

Oh mr collins, you may have missed that packing was in quotes, or that words and phrases may have more then one meaning or connotation? Personally I find ducking hard questions, esp when your confirmation is assured to be lacking in quality of character. If we are having that Dr. King moment. Predictable can also mean consistent which I find to be a good quality in myself.

mpjeep

Some do talk from both ends. Ski is offended by folks ducking questions, yet he supports Biden doing so. You have lost your credibility, sir!

And I'm sorry to hear that you discriminate against religious beliefs.

The author of the editorial is spot on. The dems have shown, with almost EVERY issue, that a person/ruling/law/opinion/etc is only righteous if they agree. If not...riot/burn/impeach/supplant/etc. Proof is overwhelming.

You must have missed trey gowdy grilling hillery, hours and hrs of it, how many millions wasted by the gop during 8 yrs of Obama? How many convictions for crimes?

Lets compare felony convictions between gop and dnc adminastrations for the last 30 years shall we? It is not nearly as one sided as you make it out to be sleepwalker.

The difference was hillary was/is a lying criminal. The recent hearing for scotus is not a trial/hearing of any sort.

Merely saying something does not make it true. If the barr "justice" dept could have pnned anything on trumps perceived enemies like " that nasty woman" you can beleive they would have.

I just thought I was disgusted by Nancy Pelosi till I started paying more attention to Amy Klobuchar. Disgusting would be an understatement.

As usual, these Senate meetings are a slap in the face to the American people, just as House meetings are. Political stumping from each side.

And nothing at all that we can do about it. Not sure why I wasted my time watching, but I did. All the senators should be ashamed.

Just vote on Barrett, it's a done deal.

JusticeForAll

Both sides should be ashamed. These hearings are a display of everything wrong with our current political environment. Just adding fuel to contentious points of view. And keep in mind that religion is a "belief" system. No facts.

mpjeep

Also, justiceforall, I took your recommendation and watched “My Octopus Teacher”.

Although this documentary was a little slow for my tastes, in the end I was glad I watched it.

Amazing how Craig Foster spent every day for almost a year diving off the tip of Africa and eventually bonding with an Octopus. He would touch the Octo and she would touch and hang on to him, eventually allowing him to follow her as she hunted for food.

Foster gained her trust and eventually fell in love with her as most of us would with our dogs or cats He even compared her intelligence to dogs. Wild to watch their connection together.

At the end, the Octopus sadly died and Foster said his lesson learned was that humans are part of the natural world, not just visitors and our own place and role in the world is a precious gift. She taught him to be more sensitive, caring and gentle to humans, animals and wild creatures like he hadn’t been in the past.

dc

I don't know there was a lot learned. Wasn't quite the Kavannaugh circus. She smoked the Left with her amazing legal knowledge, unwavering & matter-of-fact responses, & calm demeanor. To see her hold up that empty notepad was precious. Sen. Kennedy was as usual hilarious & teased his "good friend" Kamala just right. Wonder what it would have been like without the cameras? The president chose her at just the right time though I thought he should have picked her before Kavannaugh. If only this president had been around when Bush chose Roberts for chief.

David Collins

These hearings demonstrate what is right with our system . Just following the rules and regulations . Just because your gal or guy is not being considered does not make it wrong . Make no mistake , we’re the political parties reversed , there would be hearings , just different individuals under consideration . The president is elected for 4 years , not 3 years and a few months , ref. Ruth Badder Ginsburg . Elections have consequences ref. Barrack H Obama . Soooo , best get over it . Your turn will come , just not now . Patience grasshopper .

That's right JFA religion is just a belief system. Even Atheism is a belief system therefore a religion. Lots of other different belief systems or religions. Amazing isn't it? Scientists are even religious. Some are probably Catholic, some Protestant, some Muslim, some Atheist & the list goes on.

JusticeForAll

"Atheism is not an affirmative belief that there is no god nor does it answer any other question about what a person believes. It is simply a rejection of the assertion that there are gods. Atheism is too often defined incorrectly as a belief system. To be clear: Atheism is not a disbelief in gods or a denial of gods; it is a lack of belief in gods."

All religion has to do is offer proof to become fact. Simple, eh?

I do not have a side David. I support the truth, regardless of the party.

mpjeep

It's called "Faith". You either have it or you don't. Yes, you can say a belief.

JusticeForAll

Faith is not fact.

dc

Just your opinion not fact.

JusticeForAll

I have no opinion. I base my decisions on scientific facts. It is called evolution.

dc

And all you have to do is prove your's to be fact. Just as simple right?

mpjeep

Since we are discussing religion, there must be a God... Oct 15, 2020 Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris will not visit Charlotte and Asheville on Thursday.

David Collins

Great , then you do support the process . Yes , no ?

mpjeep

I don’t think anyone said they didn’t follow the rules and regulations. At least I didn’t. More like a travesty, farce or charade.

mpjeep

I have no real problem with Catholics, although their beliefs don’t fall in line with mine. Like their ban on birth control, purification process called purgatory and the way the church deals with cases of sexual abuse of children.

mpjeep

Now, justiceforall, we know there are always uncertainties in science and yes science is based on fact, but scientists do research and studies and at times do make mistakes.

You ask how do we prove God, so I ask how do you prove evolution?

Questions: Which came first, the chicken or the egg? An egg comes from a chicken, yet the chicken comes from an egg. How can there be one without the other? And the chicken has to come from a fertilized egg from both parents. So how do you explain the Origin of Life?

Here’s what I believe: First God made the male and female chickens, which produced the first fertilized egg.

You either have Faith and believe in God or you believe in the Theory of Evolution.

JusticeForAll

Well, I do not have to prove evolution. It proves itself. Read these for starters:

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/15-answers-to-creationist/

https://www.livescience.com/474-controversy-evolution-works.html

https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=proof+of+evolution

http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20150803-how-do-we-know-evolution-is-real (this one talks about chickens)

And then read the work of Charles Darwin, E. O. Wilson, Stephen Gould, Ernest Mayr, Richard Dawkins, Sewall Wright and the list goes on. In fact, the two movies you watched proved evolution. If you have offspring, you have proof.

When you can scientifically prove there is deity, by all means, share your facts. Thank you and have a glorious day.

dc

Sounds reasonable. All of us with the ability to reason have a belief system(s) since we have certain beliefs & reasoning therefor. Religion is simply a belief system; therefore, it's reasonable to say one equals the other. Atheism is a belief system hence a religion like it or not. The key to their belief system is that they BELIEVE (emphasis added) that they do not "believe in" (emphasis added) monotheism or polytheism. If they did not have a belief system/religion they would be lacking in the ability to reason. (EMPHASIS ADDED). Some call themselves "Nones" & meet like any other religious congregation. Many of us are "old-fashion" & still think "religious" means believing in God & "nonreligious" as not believing in God. In the past & even at present most if not all monotheists view polytheists & atheists as nonreligious. Why wouldn't polytheists & atheists be religious since they have a belief system? Like everything else in life things, times, & meanings change. Some atheists have their own church & meet to celebrate their "belief system/religion" & demand their own chaplain in the military. Such is life & its unending changes. This is my reasoning: monotheists, polytheists & atheists can all be described as religious since they all have their unique belief systems. I'll stick with monotheism, Christianity & Protestant (on my dog tags) as my preferred religion. Everyone else can reason as they see fit.

David Collins

I believe that you can have it both ways . Something we do not understand , so we call it God , created the original creatures that reproduced by laying eggs . Over time , lots of time , they evolved with every generation into what we call chickens and roosters , gotta have the male effort here . Now a days we love to fiddle with the natural order of things , so I have been told that the rooster is no longer necessary . Might not be the smartest thing to do for long term results but we do like to fiddle about . Time will tell .

dc

The sounds reasonable is for mpj's "chicken & egg".

Hey justice, I knew you would come back with Darwin. All atheists do! Maybe you would like to study Darwin’s theory of “pangenesis” and Mendel’s “principles of heredity”.

As you keep saying you believe in science….In 2009, Al Gore, along with some Scientist, predicted the North Pole would be completely ice free and the world would be almost completely under water by 2014.

Well it’s 2020 and I haven’t drowned yet, have you?

JusticeForAll

Science will explain why you, nor I, have not drowned yet. Recent findings in genetics indicate the existence of gemmules, as Darwin thought. Keep reading.

mpjeep

Well the more I read the more confused I get about Darwin’s research.

I did see over and over again that a man named Francis Galton designed a series of blood transfusions with rabbits and found no existence of Darwin’s gemmules and the concept of Pangenesis.

And many articles that said Darwin's Pangenesis has been largely thought to be wrong due to lack of evidence supporting his hypothetical gemmules

Are we talking about genetics where traits are transmitted to our offspring? DNA? During Darwin’s time the laws of inheritance were not around, so Darwin didn’t know how parents passed on their traits.

It would take years for me to read, study and try to comprehend the Theory of Evolution and Darwinism.

So JusticeForAll, how do you think life first began? Darwin says life began in a “warm little pond”.

I’ll stay with my ‘faith--belief” that life began with God.

JusticeForAll

The advancement in genetic science is astounding since Darwin's day. Scientist from all over the world just finished the Human Genome Project, which gave us a blueprint of ourselves. Sometimes you have to wait for science to catch up with observations. All the new findings in astronomy are validating just how insignificant our solar system and humans are. Why does it make a difference how life began? Humans began their existence on this planet 6 million years ago and we are still evolving.

mpjeep

Yes, justice, science does evolve, as you say, I say change. God does not!

I remember 50 plus years ago studying the basic food groups in high school. Guess what, 10 to 15 years ago this was changed.

Change and death are the only things constant in this world, other than God.

CARTERETISCORRUPT

Watching the hearings reminds me of the corruption in the local court. Even with the national media coverage; there is no effort to hide the corruption evident with the democrats and their agenda. Similarly, and without any media coverage at all; the local Carteret County Courts are ripe with corruption and agendas. While the nation seems to give folks like the Bidens and Clintons a free pass on all manner of crimes; the local courts are all controlled by local money and political influence. With very few exceptions, the judges are controlled by either of two local law firms. The media has been totally silent on this corruption; even ignoring it entirely. Investigative journalism has lost its little marbles. Just as the national media has covered for the democrats corruption; the local media has, through omission, facilitated corruption. This corruption has caused all manner of perversion of justice. This perversion has led to two brothers incarcerated unjustly for years, raping of due process and administration of true justice. There have even been deaths associated with these injustices. All the while the media has turned a blind eye. It should surprise no one that this corruption we see on the national stage is so huge. It permeates all levels of the justice system. Just like we cannot solve the health crisis by insurance; no we must do it by cost controls; we cannot solve the justice corruption easily. We must have a media emboldened to expose this corruption, and the public educated as to what true justice and procedure should look like. Otherwise, we are doomed to the same old corruption we have endured and tolerated for far too long.

drewski

Its not as one sided as you suggest CIC. It is a plain fact of life that there are 2 or more tiers of justice, and employment,and opportunity. Not only in carteret County but around the world. That is why the media is so important, and it is so very dangerous for leaders to foment distrust of the media. TRUMP cries fake news like a baby cries for a bottle, and just as often. If that were as true as some would like to beleive his army of lawyers would own cnn, yet they don't. N. Sandman on the other hand got a likely huge settlement, since the news erred in that case.

The rich and well connected will get the benefit of the doubt and factors in mitigation will be given heavy weight, the poor will fill the prison beds, for offenses that are a nod and a wink to the connected.

call it cronyism,call it nepotism, the good old boy network,call it corruption. I call it a fact of life. I know in my life every string I can pull, every old buddy I can tap to give my child an advantage, I am going to do it.,

The media and public outrage is the only check to that system.. and even then the public has a short attention span.

Hey Justice, For the better part of a week, I’ve watched TV documentaries, reviewed websites and researched keywords that you recommended. Only thing I haven’t done is buy this book from Amazon: “Evolution for Dummies”.

I get about a 50/50 split from reviewing info from evolution scientists, as I do from creationist scientists. I see no hard evidence that we evolved from apes.

There are three groups of mammals alive today: egg laying, marsupials (pouches) and placentals (placenta to womb to birth).

I have come to understand the meaning of the word “theory”, as used in science: an idea that has stood up to repeated testing.

You asked how I can prove God exists, have I ever seen him? I ask if you have ever observed Evolution? Like all scientists your answer would be No, because fact is, no one has ever seen evolution happen.

When I asked you how you thought life first appeared on earth, your response was "why does that matter"? You wouldn't answer because evolutionists will not answer this question either. There was no big bang or evolution of life.

Since the universe could not create itself and it had to have a beginning, the only logical solution is that the universe was created. God has always existed, is beyond time and is not part of the physical universe.

If humans descended from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?

I did read an interesting article on Hermit Crabs evolving to King Crabs. Do you think if I went to a Wings Store and purchased all the hermit crabs they have for $2 a piece, I could eventually eat king crabs year round? How long do you think this evolution process would take? I love king crabs.

I noticed one of your posts said “Amen”. We Christians use that at the end of a prayer, hym or blessing. What was your point in using it?

So at this point we will agree to disagree. Doesn’t mean that either one of us is wrong or a bad person, we just have different “beliefs”.

drewski

You can watch evolution in a petri dish, put some antibiotics in a germ culture the vast majority of the dish dies except for a small ring around the antibiotic, use a sample from the ring on a new culture, drop in same antibiotic. Look closely with a microscope, they are all doing the backstroke in the antibiotic. They evolved.

There is room in my mind for science and religion. My parents beleived the earth was 6000 yrs old and every word of the kj version was the absolute truth. What if the big bang was the snap of the almightys fingers? Evolution is part of intelligent design, unless you get your data from fox news, or the ccp ( chronic crabby posters) comments on here. Lol

JusticeForAll

Amen is simply a Hebrew word meaning "so be it". Did not know it was exclusive for Christians only.

Evolution exists with every living organism. If you are on planet earth, you evolved. It takes billions of years for it to happen, so to say it has to be observed is illogical. That is why science tests to prove a theory. "If enough evidence accumulates to support a hypothesis, it moves to the next step — known as a theory — in the scientific method and becomes accepted as a valid explanation of a phenomenon."

" — Humans did not evolve from apes, gorillas or chimps. We share a common ancestor and have followed different evolutionary paths."

Let me restate...why does it matter that life began in a little warm pond?

Still waiting for evidence of a deity. Hard evidence. Tested.

Getting back to the topic at hand...if Trump would have nominated Trey Gowdy, instead, I would have supported Mr. Gowdy 100%.

Now for the rest of the story.

"Amy Coney Barrett has some 'splaining' to do on white racism". By Colin Flaherty.

Judge Barrett is not the only one that has lots of explaining to do. When a black Marxist like Van Jones says this president hasn't been given enough credit for what he's done for the black community something is really wrong among the political & every other sorry elitist entity within a flawed constitutional republic that has come a very long way from its beginnings, Apologists & everyone else patriotic or not who cares about their own lives, the country they live in, or just to get a little insight needs to read this article until things sink in. If that doesn't help spend some time in the streets of DC or any large city. If you don't get mugged or killed just consider yourself among the very lucky. The time has long since passed to clean out our country's big city h@llholes. This president with a little help from some wise men & women is trying. Too bad he can't get anything but bad-mouthing from fools. It's good to know there are wise young & blacks of all ages supporting this president. It will be interesting to see the numbers.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I am so glad you used my paul harvey line DC. Sadly, you wasted it on Colon Flatus-ery, another far right gasbag & frequent contributor to "the american stinker" His shtick is to take a few examples and morph it into an all encompassing thesis. his book " don't make the black kids angry" is a classic , required reading at any klan meeting and should be kept in a place of honor on the bookshelf next to your copies of "the turner diaries" and "mein kampf...

If you don't get mugged or killed just consider yourself among the very lucky." yes the urban jungle , unsafe at any time for dem dere white folk! never mind DC is filled with tourists from all over the country and world, or it was before the covid. It fits his agenda, and apparently yours to spread such, tired, lazy canards. I am surprised he didn't suggest in prurient detail how virginal white women would be violently ravished , then beaten beyond recognition by a howling mob. Sheesh...

The real Rest of the Story is (and avail in DOJ stats) most violent crime is committed by members of the same race against each other. I know thats not what you want/ need to believe. if you can turn away from The American Stinker for just a moment, david duke may still put out a news letter. i am sure that is something that SOME folks on this forum would find stimulating.

Give your take on the writer's comments on crime in DC point-by-point that he got so wrong. Let's take the Marine trying to buy a meal? What did he get wrong about it? Give the "real" story on all of it. Interested in hearing you explain it since he's obviously biased right? One thing I'd take possible exception with is the judge's family probably won't experience much if at all Metro, public school, etc problems because it's doubtful parents in such high positions would need/allow their children or themselves to interact in the "everyday" life of DC but could be wrong, Look forward to you getting Colin (not colon) straight.

Further, find it strange that Leftists today seemingly are against Jews. What's that about? Who is Turner? Could look it up but have no interest in it. What I do have a concern about is recent Leftist intimidation & violence & the D Party seemingly supporting it or at least not condemning it.

Again, dc facts matter, trumps appointee cm Wray head of fbi has testified and multiple reports from doj say far right groups have carried out majority of attacks and are main threat in America today. Those are the facts, you can follow trump and shriek about antifa, the left, ad nauseum. It does not change the facts.

Anybody watch Watters' World tonight mostly about the "big guy"? He says the president is right where he wants to be & if remaining time goes as well as last week some on here might be disappointed. Consensus is economy not corruption will tell the tale.

"With All the Nazi Talk in this Election, Who Were the Nazis?" By Emery Jones. Once again here's the rest of the story. No doubt this informative article will be of great interest & appreciation for leftists. It's right down their alley. Enjoy.

It is simple really, while you might fear to tread near the whitehose, let me assure you its perfectly safe. All of downtown dc is. As I said in my comment, that author takes a few examples and makes an all encompassing statement. Just like you are doing, citing isolated incidents and assuming that is the rule rather then the exception. That is terribly poor science. ... Or we are rounding the bend on the virus? I will listen to experts, not trump.
