Since you are so familiar with the Federalist Societies extreme agenda, please explain what the extreme planks are. Just one or two that can be supported and verified will be fine.

I guess it's a good thing she didn't resign during Obama's term because you see how well Merrick Garland worked out. He's not liberal either. He's as middle of the road as you can get.

Not picked, groomed and chosen by the 'federalist society" who has an extreme agenda if there ever was one.

Abolish the entire federal public safety net for the disabled, the sick and the elderly (because...constitution and freedom!) and no restrictions on the ability of the super rich to flood the political system with money which makes it impossible for any candidate independent of the oligarchy to win.

That is extreme. And is a death sentence for the working class.

I'm sure she's fighting for all she's worth but Cancer will win.
What difference would it make if it was a 19-year-old virgin or one who has gotten laid?

Chief Justice John Roberts made a decision that conservatives believe to be as traitorous when he was the key vote not to strike down the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) as unconsitituional. That was a George W Bush nominee.

Bill Clinton's nominees (Stephen Breyer and RBG) have been steadfastly liberal. So have Barack Obama's nominees (Sotomayor and Kagan).
Roberts in all likelihood made that vote on Obamacare in hopes it would cause Obama to lose the elections in 2012. I fully believe that. He ended up wrong but it was a good try. If he terms it unconstitutional the whole thing is scrapped and Romney doesn’t have the ammo he had for the 2012 campaign

No it doesn't. Talk about making up a load of ****.

It is not the Biden rule. McConnell owns this outright.

McConnell does own this outright, which is why it should be referred to as the McConnell rule. And the McConnell rule only comes into effect at the end of a president's second term.

She needs to hang in there for another 6 months and then the GOP will have their hands tied. Since Mitch McConnell blocked Obama from electing Garland since it was an election year, as a man of integrity, I'm sure McConnell would also block Trump from nominating a replacement. /sarcasm.
No she's not.

You need to read the statement from RBG's camp carefully. They've never said she's cancer free.

The entire Trump movement is a response to the 2015 SCOTUS decision to legalize same-sex marriage. Amy Barrett on the Supreme Court is a central reason why Trump supporters have continued to remain so loyal. They want a country where white Christian men are in all positions of authority and gays are in the closet, women are in the kitchen, brown people know their place, and every school day begins with the Pledge of Allegiance and prayer in Jesus' name. They want an America where there's absolutely zero tolerance for any open questioning or disagreement with "traditional values." Amy Barrett is the religious right's key to making that happen.

If she ends up on the court, separation of church and state is done in this country.
Fearmongering. Show us what in her record would indicate that?
