Jerry Bowyer: A Vacancy on the Court and a Spending Pattern We Cannot Afford

Democrats and the media are attacking Republicans for pushing ahead with a new Supreme Court nominee while, allegedly, dragging their feet on a coronavirus relief bill.

There’s just one problem: the coronavirus bill put forward by Democrats is a dangerous expansion of the federal government that puts our economy at even more risk of fiscal collapse.

Though we don’t hear about it much anymore, the United States’ debt-to-GDP ratio has increased dramatically in the 21st century. When George W. Bush took office, we had a debt ratio of under 60 percent. Today, we have a debt ratio of over 100 percent—107 percent to be precise.

In simple English, that means our government owes more than our entire economy produces in a year. America simply cannot afford more of these immense spending bills.

Republicans are right to reject the Democrat’s short-sighted, ridiculous proposal. Imagine the spending binge if Democrats gain the presidency too.

Albert Mohler: We Need Judge Barrett

What happens now? President Trump made history by nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. That is fantastic news. But now the scene shifts to the United States Senate. The rules of the Senate call for hearings before the Judiciary Committee. Watch for those in coming weeks—and expect a political blockbuster.

Then, the committee votes to move the nomination to the floor of the Senate. That, too, will be a fight. Then Senate debate and the big event—the vote. It will be a battle at every turn, and Democrats will try their best to slow it down. Republicans must keep up the heat, and see it through to the end—the future of the Supreme Court is at stake.

We need Judge Barrett on the Supreme Court now.

Albert Mohler: Amy Coney Barrett Belongs on the Supreme Court

President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett as the next justice of the United States Supreme Court is very good news for conservatives, and for the entire nation.

Judge Barrett is exactly what we need on the nation’s highest court—a judge committed to an originalist reading of the text of the United States Constitution. Judge Barrett is a constitutional scholar of the first rank, and President Trump was wise to appoint her to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.

The news of her elevation to the Supreme Court will make history. Judge Barrett understands the sanctity of human life, the majesty of the law, and the rightful role of a judge.

She belongs on the Supreme Court.

It’s going to be a fight in the Senate. It’s up to Republicans in the upper chamber to get the job done—and get it done now.

Mohler: The Legacy of Ginsburg and the Epic Battle Ahead


To those who saw her as a feminist icon of liberal causes, she was the notorious RBG. To conservatives, she was a formidable foe, the leader of the liberal wing of the Supreme Court. Ruth Bader Ginsburg fought incredibly hard against several cancers, but she lost her battle Friday evening in Washington, DC. She was 87 years old and had served on the nation’s highest court for 27 years.

Justice Ginsburg’s legacy is one of the main debates and dividing lines between the cultural left and the right in the United States on issues, including abortion. And her death sets up an epic battle for the future of the Supreme Court, and right as the presidential election was already hitting fever pitch. Both sides know that this will be a battle to define the court for a generation or more November 3rd, now looms even larger.
