Update: During President Trump’s speech in Virginia this evening he said his justice pick is female. She will be announced at 5 p.m. EST Saturday.
President Donald Trump will be announcing his selection for Supreme Court Justice on Saturday, September 26, 2020.
The president has been meeting with at least five female candidates this week including Amy Coney Barrett,
a conservative federal appeals court judge. These five have been seen as top contenders to be his choice to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
However, there is a sixth possibility the media hasn’t mentioned much. A surprise visitor walking through the Charlotte Douglas International Airport yesterday could offer a surprise indicator of this possibility.
My sister, Bobbi Shipman, saw him and snapped a quick cell phone picture from behind as he was walking away.
“I was right in his face when a man was taking a picture with him and the man’s daughter,” Shipman explained. “We looked and smiled at each other (masked smiles). But I was too slow to get my camera phone open.”
“I love (him),” responded our cousin Debbie Labenski Marx. “He came to the Sutherland Springs church after the shooting and held my hand for a long time telling me how sorry he was that this all happened… A great , caring man.”
President Trump was in Charlotte to deliver his long-awaited speech on health care.
Who was the man walking through the Charlotte airport?
Folks from Houston, Texas remember when two young girls, Jennifer Ertmman, 14, and Elizabeth Pena, 16, who were walking home the evening of June 24, 1993 and were abducted, brutally raped and murdered.
Six gang members raped the girls repeatedly. Peter Anthony Cantu, a leader of the gang, ordered the members to kill the girls, so the members strangled them to death
José Ernesto Medellín, who had strangled Pena with shoelaces,
was caught and tried, found guilty and sentenced to death. It was discovered the murderer had lived illegally in the United States most of his life.
A few years later the United Nations World Court, with 60 countries siding, said Texas violated his rights by not informing him of his right to contact his consulate.
President George W. Bush and Secretary Condoleezza Rice ordered Texas to release him to keep peace with the U.N.
Many in Texas can still remember how the parents of those girls were so shocked and devastated that this man would go free.
Current Governor Greg Abbott was the Texas attorney general at the time. One of his junior attorneys went to argue before the Supreme Court. This attorney argued the Constitution clearly states that the United States was a sovereign nation and no other nation had jurisdiction over our laws.
All 60 countries were there arguing against this one attorney from Texas. He won the case and Texas executed the offender in 2005. That junior attorney was Ted Cruz, the man spotted at the Charlotte airport when President Trump was there.
A primary consideration to vote for a president in 2020 is because he will
“choose hundreds of federal judges, and, in all likelihood, one, two, three, and even four Supreme Court justices,” President Donald Trump said from the White House on September 10, 2020.
“Unfortunately, there is a growing radical-left movement that rejects the principle of equal treatment under law,” he remarked. “If this extreme movement is granted a majority on the Supreme Court, it will fundamentally transform America without a single vote of Congress.”
“Radical justices will erase the Second Amendment, silence political speech, and require taxpayers to fund extreme late-term abortion.”
“They will give unelected bureaucrats that power to destroy millions of American jobs. They will remove the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance. They will unilaterally declare the death penalty unconstitutional, even for the most depraved mass murderers.”
“They will erase national borders, cripple police departments, and grant new protections to anarchists, rioters, violent criminals, and terrorists.”
“In the recent past, many of our most treasured freedoms, including religious liberty, free speech, and the right to keep and bear arms, have been saved by a single vote on the United States Supreme Court. Our cherished rights are at risk, including the right to life and our great Second Amendment.”
“The outcome of these decisions will determine whether we hold fast to our nation’s founding principles or whether they are lost forever.”
One of President Trump’s first actions when he took office in 2017 was to nominate Judge Neil Gorsuch. A year later Brett Kavanaugh was nominated.
By the end of his first term, Trump will have confirmed a record number of federal judges — over 300, “all of whom will faithfully uphold our Constitution as written.”
Barrett was one of four finalists in Trump’s search for Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s replacement in 2018.
She was confirmed in October 2017 to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago and is a former Notre Dame law professor who had clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
Ted Cruz is a United States Senator for the State of Texas. Prior to his election in 2012, Senator Cruz was a partner at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, LLP and served as Solicitor General of Texas.
The Lone Star State, at 38, has the most Electoral College votes of any state other than California.
The six states with the most electors are California (55), Texas (38), New York (29), Florida (29), Illinois (20), and Pennsylvania (20).
Senator Cruz served as a law clerk to Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist on the Supreme Court of the United States and Judge J. Michael Luttig on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Senator Cruz received his A.B., cum laude, from Princeton University and his J.D., magna cum laude, from Harvard Law School.
