(TargetLiberty.org) – Judge Amy Coney Barrett became the newest Justice of the United States Supreme Court on October 26, following a 52-48 vote in favor and a swift swearing-in ceremony at the White House. The confirmation vote split along mostly partisan lines, with all 45 Democrat senators and two independents who caucus with them voting against, joined by a lone Republican – Susan Collins of Maine. That makes Barrett the only justice to be appointed with no minority support in at least 150 years.

Democrats reacted to Barrett’s confirmation with predictable spite. Within minutes of the vote, radical Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted “Expand the court,” a message that was immediately retweeted by Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a fellow member of the so-called “Squad.”

Meanwhile, abortion provider Planned Parenthood called her appointment “a disgrace.” Earlier in the day, Dem presidential candidate Joe Biden floated a bizarre scheme to rotate Supreme Court justices to lower courts. It looks like the Democrats still haven’t learned to lose gracefully – a worrying sign ahead of next week’s election.
