Liberal Hypocrisy

2017_09 Amy Barrett

One of Trump’s nominees for appeals court is Amy Coney Barrett, a Notre Dame Law School professor and a Roman Catholic. Democrats Feinstein, Hirono, and Durbin made her religious convictions an issue during her confirmation hearing.

Republican Sen. Ben Sasse noted that this line of questioning violated the Constitution’s religious test clause.

Durbin said that, because Barrett has been “outspoken” on the topic of “how a person with strong religious beliefs becomes a judge and looks at American law”, the questions were legitimate.

I think it’s more to the point to say that Democrats can’t stand conservative Christians, especially not the Catholic ones, and that they have zero qualms about making religion an issue when it suits them. You KNOW they’d be screaming bloody murder if Republicans asked a Muslim jurist how his faith would influence his judicial conduct.

Remember when long-time Leftist Sonia Sotomayor said she’d be a good SCOTUS judge, because she was a “wise Latina”?

Obama et al. didn’t care that she had never issued any important decisions, made a name for herself as a legal scholar or particularly respected jurist, and that 60% of her lower court decisions had been overturned on appeal. They only cared that she could be relied on to ignore the law in favor of promoting Progressive causes.

Barrett herself said, “It is never appropriate for a judge to apply their personal convictions, whether it derives from faith or personal conviction. My own personal church affiliation or my religious belief would not bear on the discharge of my duties as a judge.”

Not that they believed her.  Personally, I think they assume everyone is as willing to prostitute themselves for politics as they themselves are.

    While President Donald Trump has vowed that United States authorities will “destroy” the gang MS-13 as part of his crackdown on crime, the Sacramento City Council voted unanimously last week to pay gang members $1.5 Million to not kill people. I’d say “un-freaking-believable!” except we’re talking about Democrats.

    Bill Nye (not) the scientist guy, during an interview with Dan Rather, attempted to link the intensity of hurricanes to global warming and the increase of energy in the atmosphere. “The more heat energy in the atmosphere strengthens the storms, as you’d expect.” PhD meteorologist Ryan Maue explained that’s not how it works. “Bill Nye confuses the oceans with the atmosphere.” Hmm, kinda like that time Al Gore confused the temperature at the center of the Earth with the temperature on the surface of the Sun.

    • Bill Nye (not) the scientist guy, during an interview with Dan Rather…

      Wow! There’s a pair of experts! Two utterly-exposed frauds, neither of whom, by all rights, should ever be heard from again, much less anything they say taken seriously. And yet…!

      Style guide suggestion #1: Should be Dan “Fake But Accurate” Rather.

      Style guide suggestion #2: “Bill Nye, just a guy with an engineering degree,” or “Bill Nye the #FakeScience Guy.” Another possibility: “Bill Nye, the predator pushing polymorphus perversity.”

      Always preferred Beakman’s World, anyway.

    Most of the Slime Stream Media has been content to merely not ever mention that Menendez is a Democrat. AP went the extra FAKE NEWS mile and labeled him a Republican!
