There are four reported frontrunners.
Amy Coney Barratt, 46, is a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, and formerly a law professor at Notre Dame Law School, from which she holds a Juris Doctor degree. She also holds a BA from Rhodes College. She was appointed to the Appeals Court by Trump.
United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit Raymond Kethledge is also on the short list. He is 51 and received his undergraduate and Juris Doctor degree from the University of Michigan. Big League Politics reported on Kethledge’s soft immigration stance Sunday. Kethledge was appointed to the Appeals Court by George W. Bush.
Thomas Michael Hardiman, another Bush appointment, is a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Hardiman, 51, was nominated to the appeals court by President George W. Bush. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame, and his Juris Doctor from Georgetown Law.
United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit Brett Kavanaugh rounds out the frontrunners. He was a Bush appointee who served as Staff Secretary in the Executive Office of the President of the United States under the 43rd President. Kavanaugh, 53, holds an undergraduate degree from Yale University, and a Juris Doctorate from Yale Law.
Three of the four reported top choices hold degrees from non-Ivy League law schools. There has never been a sitting Supreme Court Justice from a non-Ivy League law school.

Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol
Guilt by association.
Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.
Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.
2/4 alleged that 40,000 protesters were in DC with the mindset to overturn a legitimate election and to kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress, in that instance, only 300 persons have now been arrested and are being prosecuted. What kind of justice is that?

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.
Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.
1/4 Testimony today on the Hill evidences that in the Portland protests, a thousand people were arrested. People protesting against the violence that was evidenced in the George Floyd murder. People wanting good things to happen. In Washington DC on January 6th, where it is

Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.
Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
