President Donald Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court Saturday to fill the seat vacated by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The president made the announcement during the much anticipated White House event Saturday. He also joked before Barrett came up to speak that she would have a smooth confirmation, knowing that the Democrats are ready to put up fight.

“Today it is my honor to nominate one of our nation’s most brilliant and gifted legal minds to the Supreme Court,” said Trump. “She is a woman of unparalleled achievement, towering intellect, sterling credentials and unyielding loyalty to the Constitution.”

Her story is remarkable and those who know her, including some who worked for Justice Ginsburg, support her nomination. She is a devoted wife and the working mother of seven children. Two of her children were adopted from Haiti and one child has special needs. In her address at the White House post her nomination, she spoke highly of her husband and the importance of family.
 

She would be only the fifth woman to serve on the Supreme Court. With her confirmation she would become the only mother currently on the Court.

Yet, it is her future that will determine the course of the nation. Her love for the Constitution and justice makes her the best warrior to protecting America and the rights our nation grants its citizens.

Here’s some fast facts about Barrett and why this decision by President Trump will mark his legacy and in my opinion make his presidency one of the greatest in modern political history.

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Published

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
