One of President Donald Trump’s 25 options to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy resides in South Bend.

In fact, Amy Coney Barrett tops Trump’s alphabetical list that he created last year. She was picked by Trump last year to become a circuit judge in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit based in Chicago. She also was harshly questioned by Senator Dianne Feinstein about her faith and how it relates to her view of the law.

Prior to that, she taught law at Notre Dame and clerked for late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Since Amy Coney Barret is so highly qualified in the whole world knows that she certainly is much more intelligent than all the heads put together in that Senate room that was questioning her and the Hawaiian female with her questions about had she ever molested someone …that Senator woman needs to be put to the fire made to apologize and then disbarred from ever serving in a public service in America again… Who does she think she is…if she took 5 minutes to read the Bible in Genesis she can find out that God detests homosexuals/lesbians and he destroyed communities namely Sodom and Gomorrah and a couple more for that very behavior… Why would he allow America to stand when we’ve multiplied those sins by billions not to mention The unborn infants that are murdered on a daily basis by the thousands….
