Ted Cruz: Judge Barrett Is Going To Be Confirmed By This Committee and the Senate!


If you’ve been paying any attention to the confirmation hearings of Amy Coney Barrett, you’ll realize how dirty the Democrats are.

They’ve insinuated that she’s racist, homophobic, and doesn’t want people voting.

They hate President Trump so much that they’re willing to destroy a perfectly qualified woman from becoming a Supreme Court justice.

And according to Senator Ted Cruz, the Democrats efforts have failed.

He said just today that Amy Coney Barrett will sit on the Supreme Court!

Check it out:

Cruz also put out a warning to everyone that Democrats plan to get even dirtier by packing the Supreme Court:

Here's more on that from Fox News:

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, warned Wednesday that "the next fight" Republicans will face if Democrats assume control of the Senate will center on court packing. He railed against the practice, and used several prominent Democrats' own words on the subject to support his case.

Cruz joined other Republicans in speaking out against the concept of one party exerting power by increasing the size of the Supreme Court so they can confirm judges whose philosophies are in line with their own.

"Packing the court is wrong, it is an abuse of power," Cruz said during Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearing. "I believe, should they win in November, that our Democratic colleagues will pack the court."

Cruz then rattled off a string of quotes from Democrats who spoke out against court packing in the past.

"I will read you some quotes," Cruz said. "Joe Biden in 1983, quote, FDR’s court packing idea was quote ‘a boneheaded idea, it was a terrible, terrible mistake to make. And it put in question for an entire decade the independence of the most significant body ... in this country.'"

Barrett has been treated with such disrespect by the Democrats.

Democrat Senator Coons basically said that she'd rule however Anthony Scalia would have.

She had to remind Senator Coons that she has her own brain.

Here's the details on that exchange from Fox News:

Amy Coney Barrett staked out on Wednesday her judicial independence -- even from her mentor -- during another day of intense questioning on Capitol Hill where she tried to assure senators she would be an impartial jurist who would weigh opposing views fairly.

President Trump's Supreme Court nominee already distanced herself from Trump's tweets on Tuesday -- arguing she would be nobody's "pawn." But on Wednesday, Barrett also distinguished herself from Justice Antonin Scalia, the late conservative icon for whom Barrett clerked.

Since Barrett admittedly prescribes to the same originalist judicial philosophy that Scalia championed, Democrats claim that Scalia's past votes against Obamacare, gay marriage and the Voting Rights Act would be hers too.

But under questioning from Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., Barrett told the senator it's unfair to expect she would decide a case just as her mentor had done.

"I hope that you aren't suggesting that I don't have my own mind," Barrett said, "or that I couldn't think independently or that I would just decide like, 'Let me see what Justice Scalia has said about this in the past.'

"I assure you I have my own mind."
