Democrats are getting ready to take on the female judge they expect President Trump to turn to if Kavanaugh fails or withdraws… Kavanaugh’s not going anywhere!
President Trump was absolutely correct when he said anyone he chooses will be opposed. If this isn’t a coordinated attack, I don’t know what is.
The one clear, consistent threat to Judicial nastiness is Feinstein. She’s been a thorn in the side of conservatism, and this last minute hi-jinx proves that she’s cruel, calculating and downright evil. She just might be the worst person in Congress… and that’s really something when you look at the cast of characters on the hit parade. –Ace of Bass

If President Donald Trump is forced to pick an alternate Supreme Court nominee to Brett Kavanaugh, his top choice may be a female judge who has close ties to a conservative Christian group that helped inspire The Handmaid’s Tale.
Amy Coney Barrett, 46, was considered a leading backup as Kavanaugh’s nomination hung in the balance on Thursday, with a third accuser coming forward to allege sexual misconduct in his youth.
Activist groups have already registered ‘StopConeyBarrett.com’ in a bid to fight her potential nomination.
Barrett, a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals judge on the Seventh Circuit was added to Trump’s shortlist of potential nominees last year, and was said to be among his top three picks before he settled on Kavanaugh.
After Trump announced Kavanaugh as his choice in July, Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah commented that he assumed Barrett would be selected ‘next time’.
The fact that Barrett is a woman would provide a bulwark against allegations in the age of #MeToo – but Democrats would be just as unhappy with her nomination, with many seeing her as more conservative than Kavanaugh and possibly more likely to overturn Roe v Wade.
Liberal activists registered ‘StopConeyBarrett.com’ in June but it remains ready to be activated in a campaign against Barrett if she is nominated.
A practicing Catholic, Barrett has deep ties to People of Praise, a non-denominational Christian covenant group founded as part of a Catholic revitalization movement in 1971.
The group’s conservative tenets and practice of referring to female leaders as ‘handmaids’ helped inspire The Handmaid’s Tale, a book about a religious takeover of the U.S. government which is now a hit TV show, according to a 1986 interview with author Margaret Atwood. More
Since Kavanaugh is not withdrawing, she will be the perfect replacement of the 85-year-old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The personal attacks against Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be even more vicious than those against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
