In the United States , the Women's March on Saturday called for demonstrations across the country to protest the hasty appointment of Conservative Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. As in 2016, after Donald Trump's victory, women see rights threatened by the decisions of the current administration.

Amy Coney Barrett is poised to become President Trump's third Supreme Court justice when the full Republican-led Senate votes on her nomination on Senate Republicans cleared the last procedural hurdle on a 51-48 vote to advance Barrett ’s nomination to the Senate during a rare Sunday session.

Barrett ’s lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court requires a minimum of 51 votes and Republicans who control the Senate 53-47 say they have the numbers despite two likely Republican defections. A procedural vote is expected during a rare Sunday session this weekend, setting up a final vote on

The Republican-majority Senate is expected to confirm, on the night of Monday October 26 to Tuesday October 27, the life appointment of Amy Coney Barrett, a very conservative Catholic. Just before the presidential election that the Supreme Court could arbitrate.

The Republican majority of the US Senate is expected to confirm, on the night of Monday October 26 to Tuesday October 27, the installation at the Supreme Court of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, 48, just one month after her appointment by Donald Trump , replacing the progressive Ruth Bader Ginsburg . Never before has a judge in court been propelled so quickly.

There was an emergency for the Republicans in a hurry to install a judge "theirs" - the third under Trump after Neil Gorsuch (2017) and Brett Kavanaugh (in 2018) - ahead of the elections on November 3. The Court is now firmly anchored on the right, with six conservative magistrates out of nine.

Badly in the polls, Trump and the Republicans can brandish a "trophy" and hope for a burst of mobilization from the religious electorate, who will recognize themselves in Judge Barrett: since his student years at Notre Dame University, in Indiana, she belongs to the People of Praise, a group of conservative Catholics and Protestant evangelicals.

Hot topics await

Judge Barrett will sit on November 2, and she may have to settle electoral disputes, or even the presidential election, as the Republican Party multiplies the appeals against the postal vote. Twenty years ago, George Bush owed his election to the Supreme Court, which suspended the recount of the ballots in Florida. The court will also rule in November on Obamacare, the health insurance introduced under Obama in 2010, which Trump wants to destroy and which the judge has denigrated in past writings.

The Senate in Washington confirmed the candidate for US President Donald Trump on Monday evening (local time).

All rights reserved. The Senate is set to vote Monday evening to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court. Previously, Supreme Court justices needed to clear a 60-vote threshold to advance to the high court, a tradition that forced nominees to win bipartisan support, but

"The United States Constitution was designed to give the voters one chance to have their voice heard on who serves on the Court. If Judge Barrett is confirmed, conservative-leaning justices will hold a 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court for the foreseeable future.

On November 4, Barrett and his peers will consider a freedom of conscience lawsuit against the city of Philadelphia that requires adoption agencies to treat same-sex couples on an equal basis.

This touches on the deep agenda of the religious right since 1980. More interested in the sacred (the defense of their values) than in the layman (day-to-day governance), the Reverend Jerry Falwell, his followers and their successors have made the Supreme Court their priority, it settling the major issues that divide: abortion, same-sex marriage, firearms ...

The pact made with the Republican Party of Ronald Reagan - the votes of their flock in exchange for the appointment of conservative judges - still stands. Very conservative pharmacies, such as the Federalist Society, have almost dictated Trump's choices: young judges (Gorsuch is 53, Kavanaugh 55), guardians of values ​​for decades. Unless, of course, Joe Biden and the Democrats win the White House and a double majority in the Senate and the House: they could then reform the Court and rebalance it.
