Appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow, here’s a partial transcript of Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s opening statement:
I also clerked for Justice Scalia, and like many law students, I felt like I knew the justice before I ever met him, because I had read so many of his colorful, accessible opinions. More than the style of his writing, though, it was the content of Justice Scalia’s reasoning that shaped me. His judicial philosophy was straightforward: A judge must apply the law as written, not as the judge wishes it were. Sometimes that approach meant reaching results that he did not like. But as he put it in one of his best known opinions, that is what it means to say we have a government of laws, not of men.Amy Coney Barrett

The U.S. Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC) recently updated its estimated Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) parameters to include age-specific data showing the vast majority of people who contract the Chinese coronavirus survives.
CDC Data: COVID-19 Pandemic Planning Scenarios
Survival rates by age group –
- 0-19 years old = 99.997%
- 20-49 years old = 99.98%
- 50-69 years old = 99.5%
- 70 or older = 94.6%
That means that for people 69 years old or younger, the survival rate is between 99.5 percent and 99.997 percent, while for those 70 or older, it is an estimated 94.6 percent.Breitbart.com

Referring to the often cited number of 200,000 US deaths from COVID –
…a new study out of Oxford showed that over 30% of those deaths are not COVID. There are other causes and they also happen to have COVID.Dr. Marc Siegel
Thus, the actual number is likely to be less than 140,000 US deaths from COVID. And, most of the deaths are still occurring in nursing homes.
