What will the Democrats do next time?

The odds-on favorite to replace the aging Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is former Notre Dame law professor and current Seventh Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Among her many accomplishments, Barrett clerked for the U.S. Supreme Court and served on its appellate rules committee. She taught law at George Washington University and the University of Virginia and has published numerous scholarly articles in leading law reviews. Her nomination to the circuit court received bipartisan endorsement from more than 70 law professors (including the Obama administration’s former acting solicitor general).

Equally impressive, Barrett is a married pro-life Catholic with seven children. She and her husband adopted two of those children who are black. They have another child who has special needs. She is a truly admirable person.

But, in 2017 when President Trump nominated Barrett to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, she was attacked by Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Instead of exploring Barrett's impressive qualifications, Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) grilled the nominee about the depth of her Catholic faith. Acting as ex officio arbiters in matters of faith and morals, Feinstein and Durbin set out to determine whether the nominee was perhaps too devoutly Catholic to be trusted with a judgeship. They focused on a law review article Barrett coauthored when she was a student that discussed what should be done if a Catholic judge's religion conflicted with his duty to follow established death penalty law. It concluded that "

he legal system has a solution for this dilemm” it allows (indeed it requires) the recusal of judges whose convictions keep them from doing their job."

Unsatisfied with this endorsement of the primacy of law over religion, Durbin probed the depths of Barrett's faith, going so far as to ask, "Do you consider yourself an orthodox Catholic?"

Not to be outdone, Feinstein concluded her questioning by telling Barrett, “the [Catholic] dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern.

Thankfully the old-time and well-worn anti-Catholic bigotry failed, and Barrett was confirmed by the Senate. She serves today with distinction on the circuit court of appeals.

So, what will happen to her if she is nominated to the Supreme Court? Should we expect the Democrats to analyze her high school yearbook to find out if she played drinking games or her grade school diary to see if she had a precocious affinity for spin-the-bottle? After the Kavanaugh silliness, there appears to be no floor to the depths to which the bitter Democrats will sink.

I had forgotten about this. So a so-called Jew, Diane Feinstein, engaged in anti-Catholic bigotry and "failed." But I believe she didn't fail at sturring up anti-Jewish sentiment - and she will stir up more of it if (she may not be reelected this year) she gets to question Judge Barrett again in a more high profile national proceeding involving placement on the Supreme Court. Clearly, Diane Feinstein feels or thinks no compulsion to protect the Jewish community from any rising criticisms of her that reflect badly on every non-elite Jew in America, Democrat and Republican alike.

It is related that (at the time of the Russian Revolution) the chief Rabbi of Moscow, Rabbi Jacob Maze, once appeared before Leon Trotsky to plead on the behalf of the Russian Jews. Trotsky (born Lev Bronstein) answered him, as he had done on various occasions, that he was a Communist and did not consider himself a Jew. To this Rabbi Maze replied: "Trotsky makes the revolutions, and the Bronsteins pay the bills."

Additional Note: And Trotsky wound up with an ice pick in his eye, courtesy of his old "comrade," Joseph Stalin.

Diane Feinstein stirs the revolution pot but the Joe and Debby Cohens of Brooklyn and Mandy Steins of Encino will pay the bills.
