Amy Coney Barrett, Donald Trump’s latest controversial nominee for the US supreme court, will tell senators in her high-stakes confirmation hearing this week that she will approach cases based on the law, not her personal views, as Democrats urged her to step aside on upcoming contentious cases.
Barrett, a fervent Catholic with a record of opposing abortion rights, will say that courts “should not try” to create policy, during Monday’s opening remarks, which were obtained by multiple media outlets on Sunday.
Barrett, a Trump-appointed judge now serving on the US seventh circuit court of appeals, will also say that she’s “done my utmost to reach the result required by the law, whatever my own preferences might be” in her present position. Senate Democrats are expected to grill Barrett on this.
Trump nominated Barrett to replace liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died in September at the age of 87. If
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Amy Coney Barrett, President Donald Trump’s pick for a U.S. Supreme Court vacancy, said she will rule based on the law, not her personal views, in prepared remarks issued on Sunday ahead of her Senate confirmation hearing this week.
Barrett, a conservative appeals court judge, said that in her current job she has “done my utmost to reach the result required by the law, whatever my own preferences might be.”
A devout Catholic who has a record of opposing abortion rights, Barrett is likely to be probed by Senate Democrats on that issue in particular. If Barrett is confirmed to the position by the Republican-controlled Senate, the court

Personal income fell 2.7 percent in August, according to data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Personal income data over the past six months have been sharply distorted by lockdown policies which caused massive layoffs, and government stimulus programs that sent transfer payments skyrocketing. As those payments fade, measures of personal income and components are returning to trend.
Disposable personal income fell 3.2 percent after a 0.3 percent increase in July. The personal savings rate fell in August, coming in at 14.1 percent of disposable income following rates down from 17.7 percent in July and a peak of 33.6 percent in April (see first chart).
The drop in personal income consisted, in part, of a 1.3 percent increase in wages and salaries. Wages and salaries, which typically account for about half of personal income, rose as some employees went back to work after lockdown policies were eased.
For over 50 years, free government grants have been given away to individuals for personal use, and that money is going nowhere.

- Here is just a small sample of the free government grants that are available:
- Small Business Start Up – $150,000,000
- Home Renovation – $5,000,000
- Heath Care Cost Recovery – $2,250,000
- Student Loans and Education Grants – $1,000,000
- Minority Grants – $25,000,000
- Women’s Grants – $8,000,000
- Research Grants – $100,000,000
- Community and Social Development Grants – $65,000,000
Free government grants are provided by various agencies, including your local and state government as well as your federal government. There’s no limit on the number of free … Read More
It’s no secret that personal injury attorneys have a bad reputation in our society. We have all heard the stereotypes and jokes about those “ambulance chasing” lawyers: that we take advantage of vulnerable people for our own personal gain, that we chase ambulances looking for our next payday, and that we will do any shady or underhanded action in order to get paid.
These stereotypes are not only false, but they are damaging to our legal system. The legal system is what people should turn to in their time of need. And truth be told, the vast majority of injury attorneys help their clients get the compensation they deserve. People that are hurt in a car accident, personal injury, or injured by a defective product turn to accident lawyers every day.
So where do these negative stereotypes come from? Primarily they come from popular media that is largely influenced by … Read More
Government grants are provided to millions of people and organizations every year to help with personal expenses. Many people, however, are not aware of how to find or apply for these funds.

What exactly are government grants?
Grants are similar to loans, except they never have to be paid back. Theses funds are budgeted for by various government agencies with tax payer dollars. By applying for these funds, anyone over the age of 18 and an American citizen can find out if they qualify to obtain some of this money for their personal use. By doing so, you can partner with the government to reclaim some of your tax dollars and put it to good use.

When someone encounters an accident that causes harm, knowing about the provisions of personal injury law is important. Catastrophic accidents can result from personal injury and at times, the effects lead to death. If one does not place adequate responsibility to what he or she is doing, one’s actions can cause damage to others.
The aim of this type of law is to protect every person’s interests and it is part of civil law. It provides victims with the right to claim for damages from the parties who are liable for the negligence that brought about the injuries. Under this ruling one can receive liability claims charges when the cause of suffering and pain is an action which a negligent party is responsible for.
When a person contributes to the events that lead to the injury of another person, he or she is known as the defendant whereas the injured … Read More
