Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced on Tuesday that the Senate will vote on Monday, October 26 to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. The current open seat was vacated by the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg. McConnell told reporters, “We will be voting to confirm Justice-to-be Barrett next Monday and I think that will be another signature accomplishment in our effort to put on the courts, the federal courts, men and women who believe in a quaint notion that the job of a judge is to actually follow the law.” MCCONNELL: "We'll be voting to confirm Justice-to-be Barrett next Monday." pic.twitter.com/vvhtxGfoSo — Breaking911 (@Breaking911) October 20, 2020 RELATED: Mitch McConnell Shuts Down ‘Myth’ That Republicans Won’t Have Time To Confirm A SCOTUS Nominee McConnell: ‘The American People Deserve To Have’ Amy Coney Barrett On The Supreme Court’ This announcement by the Senate Majority Leader comes after the announcement that there are enough votes to confirm Barrett. McConnell said that Barrett’s Senate confirmation hearings showed that the judge possessed “sheer intellectual horsepower that the American people deserve to have on the Supreme Court.” Republicans have a 53-47 majority in the Senate and only two GOP senators have announced they will oppose.

Good luck on that. Appointing conservative judges is a promise most Republican candidates and presidents make, and this has been especially true of Donald Trump – who has the opportunity to appoint three. Whatever happens in November, a Republican senator undermining Trump’s effort to place one more conservative justice on the Supreme Court could be political suicide for many members, depending on the makeup of their states.

During the second day of Supreme Court justice nominee Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearings on Tuesday, Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) had the nerve to ask if she had ever committed sexual assault. Unfortunately for Hirono, however, it did not take long for this to come back to bite her. When it came time for Hirono to speak, she informed Barrett

Mac SlavoSeptember 21st, 2020SHTFplan.com With the death of Supreme Court justice and liberal hero, Ruth Bader Ginsburg comes the possibility of election violence beginning early. Brace for a reaction, as President Donald Trump has insisted on filling Ginsburg’s seat while the left threatens to “burn it down” if he does. The division is too immense to break through at this point. Far too many are firmly rooted in the left vs. right paradigm lie and it’s going to manifest unless we open our eyes. Unless a lot of people realize what’s going on and realize how divided we’ve allowed ourselves to become, this political violence could escalate to devastating explosive events. Almost immediately after the news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, some verified Twitter users threatened arson and apparent violence in order to block Senate Republicans from replacing her before the elections. “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f—–g thing down,” author Reza Aslan tweeted, according to Fox News. If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire fucking thing down. — Reza Aslan (@rezaaslan) September 19, 2020 He later responded to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s vow to hold a vote on President Trump’s nominee. “Over our dead bodies, literally,” he tweeted. Author Aaron Gouveia similarly blasted McConnell’s statement, saying: “F–k no. Burn it all down.” Ginsburg’s death seems to have only ramped up the rhetoric and forced the divide between the left and the right further apart. Fuck no. Burn it all down. https://t.co/hsjqeVLgBn — Aaron's Book Is Now Available! (@DaddyFiles) September 19, 2020 Please be prepared, because neither side will be backing down. We could very well experience massive violence even before the already promised election violence. This is not meant to be anything other than a warning. If you take this as fear-mongering, I suggest you harness that fear and brace yourself while continuing to prepare. Be able to protect yourself and your family especially if you live in or near a big city. The mainstream media is telegraphing that this violence is coming. It seems to be pushed forward in time, though, because of the death of Ginsburg. President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve! He wants zero rates and QE4!
