NY Times is subtly pushing for Amy Coney Barrett nomination

with 20 comments

Of course the New York Times is NOT the friend of Republicans, so if they are trying to instigate Trump to pick Amy Coney Barrett, that means she’s a bad pick.

First, we have Frank Bruni’s op-ed column which aims to make Barrett seem like the most exciting pick.

Barrett, you see, talks readily and proudly about her Catholicism, making no bones about its presence at the center of her life. She and her husband have seven children, two of whom are adopted. She belongs to a mostly Catholic group, People of Praise, whose members make an especially intense commitment to their faith.

And Republicans expect — and want — liberals to be so freaked out by this that they oppose her in a manner that can be branded anti-religious. They’re setting her up to be a Christian martyr, minus the grisly end, and daring Democrats to take the bait.

And then, today, there’s a NY Times news article proclaiming that Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court Front-Runner, Once Argued Broad Grounds for Impeachment, implying that Democrats are looking forward to a Kavanaugh nomination so they can talk about impeachment.

These are all lies. Democrats are actually looking forward to a big fight about abortion, and they hope that Trump is stupid enough to fall for it. The NY Times thinks that Barrett is the weakest candidate who has the best chance of being defeated. They know that Trump became president because of votes from prole whites in the Rust Belt who are not evangelical Christians and many of whom are pro-choice.

I would also point out that the idea that liberals and the mainstream media would go soft on Barrett because she’s a woman, that idea is total BS. I guarantee you that she will be skewered mercilessly and will not get the slightest deference merely because she has a vagina. It’s all out war for them, and Barrett is the ultimate enemy.

A photograph in this article implies that Amy Coney Barrett’s sister and brother-in-law also adopted two black kids. It must be a thing with their weird religious sect.

Because of the “covenanted” relationship, which involves reciting the five-sentence promise with other covenanted members, the group is tightly knit. People of Praise leaders refused to provide a copy of the covenant, [source]

Secret doctrines that only the most committed members are allowed to know, that’s the hallmark of a cult.

Ann Coulter says the same thing, that the mainstream media is trying to manipulate Trump away from Kavanaugh, maybe she’s reading my blog:

  1. Not that Barrett will or should be nomination, but Trump voters in the Rust Belt are wedded to Trump. The connection has become deep and personal over trade and immigration. These voters will support whomever Trump nominates because Trump.

    • Yeah but this upcoming nomination fight isn’t about Trump supporters, it’s about scaring Democrats into coming out to the polls in November. So in that regard, a religious extremist is perfect. Notice that no one is talking about her judicial qualifications, only her faith.

      • Qualifications:

        Kavanaugh: Yale Law School, 12 years experience as a federal appellate judge.
        Barrett: Notre Dame Law School, less than one year of experience as a federal appellate judge.

      • Explain to me why judicial qualifications matter.

      • So that people opposing the nomination look like political hacks

  2. Amy Barrett is far too risky with her short judicial record.

    • This is the main drawback to Barrett’s candidacy. Not the Hatian children. I predict Barrett will make it onto SCOTUS after a some time as an appellate judge.

      • “Not the Hatian children.”

        The Haitian children is one aspect of Barrett’s personal life that will NEVER be criticized by the mainstream media.

  3. Ann Coulter knows Kethledge personally (they both worked for Sen. Spencer Abraham in the 90’s), so she’s not speculating when she says he’s for open borders.


    July 6, 2018 at EDT am

    • She also, like Kethledge, went to the University of Michigan Law School, though they did not overlap, so she likely has a good read of his opinions via the alumni network.

  4. I remember reading that adopting black children (specifically, black Africans, and Haitians) was or is a fad amongst nice white Christian ladies, sort of missionizing without actually going to the Dark Continent.

    Cole Hamels’s wife insisted on adopting an Ethiopian girl, and Clayton Kershaw & fam run a foundation “for the children.”

    The girl looks scared.

    About Barrett, this is all “strange new respect.” When they get her in the crosshairs, she’ll get mobbalized.

    • PS Look at the faces of Barrett’s relatives in that DM article. They all have that insipid, “come and kill me” look.


      July 6, 2018 at EDT am

    • Whites adopting young African children is like them walking into a CVS/Walgreens-type store and buying the Time Bomb-brand time bomb. “Guaranteed to Explode in 10 Years!,” the package blurb boasts.

  6. Agreed. A few days ago CNN was saying that Amy Barrett would be Trump’s “Dream Pick”. No doubt they hope he picks her.

  7. It’s obvious that only a nationalist should be appointed to the Supreme Court. Do any if the candidates have that ideology?


    July 6, 2018 at EDT am

  8. That’s wise. I myself fall into the Bush trap. Hannity ans’Ingraham and Carlson were Bush supporters and now they favour Trump. Maybe K is the same .

    • Well that describes most of the Republican Party. That’s why Jeb! spent 100 million dollars and only won 3 delegates at the Republican National Convention.

      Won’t get fooled again.
