  2. Kamala is like Joe. She can only say what her handlers allow her to say. Everything they say is scripted and runs on the teleprompter.

    “Did Kamala Harris Read Statement Remotely by Teleprompter for Barrett Hearing?

    It’s painfully obvious.”

    “It looked like Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) delivered her opening statement for Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s hearing remotely using a teleprompter.

    It made the delivery even more awkward, especially since it’s hard not to follow her eyes.”

  5. This is a sad story.

    https://slate.com/human-interest/2020/10/coronavirus-italy-unclaimed-bodies-buried.html

    “The Lost Dead of Milan

    As the pandemic overtook Northern Italy, some bodies seemingly vanished. When they were found, families’ sorrow only deepened.”

    “Like many others in Italy, and now around the world, Mauro Catacchio last saw his mother when she was taken away in an ambulance. That was March 26. Maria Laratro was a 94-year-old mother of three, a retired tailor, and “a fighter,” Catacchio said. She had been going to the hospital three times a week for dialysis, and the doctors told her son that she set an example to other patients with her doggedness late in life.

    That day, Catacchio had received a call from her caretaker, who said that his mother felt sick and coughed up blood. Catacchio rushed to her home, called an ambulance, and then quarantined himself—he suspected strongly she had the coronavirus. After she died of the virus in a Milan hospital on April 10, Catacchio and his siblings contracted a funeral home to attend to her wishes to be cremated and placed next to her husband. The Milan crematorium was fully booked, so she would be taken to Padua, some 150 miles away. Still, “everything seemed fine,” Catacchio told me.

    Then on the morning of May 1, Catacchio received a phone call from his brother Giuseppe. Something had gone wrong. “I felt everything inside me freeze,” Catacchio said. His brother sounded shaken as he explained what happened: Their mother had not been cremated; the funeral company said it had received an empty urn. Instead, she had been considered an unclaimed body and “buried” in a place that Catacchio didn’t yet know existed, but would make headlines for months to come: the Campo 87.

    In March, when Italy’s northern region Lombardy was the global epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, the sheer number of deaths caused logistical problems in many places. The region was the first coronavirus hot spot in the West, and the virus seemed to be more lethal here than in China. It took Italy by storm: Two weeks after the first reported death, the country already reported three-figure death totals every day. Some 16,860 of Italy’s 35,473 coronavirus deaths occurred in Lombardy. Local doctors said they faced a “tsunami” of cases; morgues ran out of room for bodies. Some crematoriums became overwhelmed. Viral photographs showed cemetery chapels packed with caskets awaiting burial or cremation, and army trucks carrying coffins away from Bergamo, east of Milan, in the night, toward less busy crematoriums in other cities.

    To ease the pressure on local hospital morgues, Milan shortened the window for families to claim the bodies of people who die in hospitals from 30 days to five. Authorities decided that any unclaimed bodies would be buried in Campo 87, a previously unused field in Milan’s Cimitero Maggiore, a sprawling cemetery home to more than 500,000 graves.

    “We have lost many of our children, and in some cases the passing has been even more tragic because some have passed without anyone by their side, without any family,” Milan Mayor Beppe Sala said in a Facebook video filmed on the Campo 87 at the time. “Those whose bodies have not been requested by family members have been buried in this space.” He called it “a tragedy within a tragedy.”

    But a few weeks later, a daily newspaper in Milan, Corriere Della Sera, began reporting that many had been buried in the Campo 87 by mistake. For some, this happened because their relatives had become infected themselves and, confined in hospitals or quarantine, could not arrange burials. Other families say they were never told of their relatives’ deaths. And still others, like Catacchio’s, said their instructions for the burial of their relatives had been ignored altogether.”

  6. Well duh, it’s because they’re bigots.

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2020/10/sen-hawley-unloads-on-those-who-attack-barretts-catholic-faith-thats-bigotry/

    “Sen. Hawley Unloads on Those Who Attack Barrett’s Catholic Faith: ‘That’s Bigotry’

    “When you tell somebody that they’re too Catholic to be on the bench, when you tell them they’ll be a Catholic judge, not an American judge, that’s bigotry.”

    “Sen. Josh Howley (R-MO) unleashed his anger on those who have attacked Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Catholic faith.

    As a Catholic, I appreciate him speaking out against this bigotry.

    We have seen and heard so many lies about Barrett, people misconstruing Catholicism as a way to attack Barrett.

    Even Joe Biden has said that no one should question Barrett about her faith, but instead on Obamacare: “No, her faith should not be considered. I don’t think there’s any question about her faith.”

    I find it funny that they attack Barrett’s Catholicism and yet their nominee is Catholic.”

    ———–

    But they know their nominee isn’t big on doctrine and church teachings, and would never defend the right to life or any of the other basic tenants of their faith. Those things mean nothing to Joe, so his “Catholicism” means nothing to them.

  7. More dirty little lies exposed. They feed the press the lies, the press publishes it, and then they use the press reports to “prove” their bogus case.

    I can’t decide who the bigger frauds are here.

    Nonviolent felons, Durbin. Read her opinion.”

    “Hey, Sen. Dick Durbin. When you try to mansplain a judge’s opinion to said judge, maybe you should read it.

    Durbin could not believe Barrett thinks felons should own guns! Except, you know, she didn’t.”

  9. Kim (and others considering not voting, or not sure if you can vote for Trump with a clear conscience) – Instead of not voting, consider a good 3rd party or interdependent. Here is one: Don Blankenship, Constitution Party, described on Wikipedia as:

    The Constitution Party, formerly the U.S. Taxpayers’ Party until 1999, is a political party in the United States that promotes a right-to-far-right view of the principles and intents of the United States Constitution. The party platform is based on originalist interpretations of the Constitution and shaped by principles which it believes were set forth in the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution and the Bible.

    He cannot win the election because he’s not on the ballot in enough states. But if enough Conservatives fed up with the GOP (like I am) voted for him, it could send a solid message to the GOP leaders that we’ve had enough of the Democrat light we’ve been getting from them.
