After the shoot, I decided to listen to some Bangers in the club. BIG MISTAKE. On the way to the club, our vehicle was stopped by SARS.

3. Amy Coney Barrett confirmed to Supreme Court
On Monday evening, October 26, the U.S. Senate confirmed Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Barrett was confirmed by a slim 52-48 vote, along mostly party lines, with one Republican — Susan Collins of Maine — joining the chamber’s 47 Democrats in voting against the nomination. Barrett will be sworn in at an outdoor White House ceremony on Monday evening. Vice Presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris of California was among the “no” votes.
Barrett’s confirmation gives conservatives a 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court bench. Her nomination created controversy as it violated Republican senators’ own precedent from 2016 when they refused confirmation hearings for President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

“I am against any and all forms of terror and violence. Unfortunately, some press people don’t act responsibly when writing the news, abusing their press freedom, not verifying if what they write/reproduce is true, creating a gossip chain without caring it affects people’s lives and my life. I am taking legal action against the publishers and spreaders of these 100% Fake News,” he said.
