Reports Trump Will Nominate Amy Coney Barrett For the Supreme Court

Amy Coney Barrett

Both the New York Times and CNN are reporting that President Trump has decided to nominate Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court.

Barrett received her law degree from Notre Dame Law School as a Kiley Fellow (a full-tuition scholarship). She also served as an executive editor of the Notre Dame Law Review.

She is a circuit judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and is considered by many an "originalist" and a "textualist."  She spent a year as a clerk to Associate Justice Antonin Scalia of the Supreme Court of the United States. 

While currently serving on the federal bench, she is a professor of law at Notre Dame Law School.

At Notre Dame, Barrett has received the "distinguished professor of the year" award three times.

The New York Times reports that Barrett, a Catholic, is a member of small and relatively obscure Christian group People of Praise.

According to the Times, the group grew out of the Catholic charismatic renewal movement that began in the late 1960s and adopted Pentecostal practices such as speaking in tongues, belief in prophecy and divine healing.

Superlawyer Bob Barnes has pointed out that Barrett always rules in favor of the establishment and most recently ruled in favor of the Illinois lockdown. He does not expect her to be a friend of liberty if she joins the bench. 



  1. She's also in favor of forced vaccinations. Definitely an insider and on the wrong side of liberty.

  2. @ CCLS
    I have read several comments now stating Amy Barrett is in favor of forced vaccinations. If true, this is problematic. Is there evidence of this? I looked but did not see any specific rulings showing Barrett in favor of forced vaccines.

  3. Robert Barnes' opinion on Barrett and Lagoa (his preferred). Barrett's very much a problem according to Barnes.
