UPDATE: Judge Kavanaugh is to be the next Supreme Court Justice. Last night President Trump, in an eloquent presentation, nominated the Judge to replace the retiring Kennedy. What better nomination can you get than Judge Kavanaugh. A man of integrity, judicial common sense and a record to boot. Congratulations to both the President and the Judge. Of course the Democrats will babble with the mouth, but in the end they will choke on their own words.
President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to replace retiring Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy has set the stage for a bruising confirmation battle, as Senate Democrats and liberal groups vowed to resist what could be a dramatic and long-lasting rightward shift on the Supreme Court.
Within seconds of Trump’s announcement in the White House Monday night, the far-left political action committee Democracy for America called Kavanaugh, 53, a “reactionary ideologue” whose confirmation would “directly lead to the deaths of countless women with the dismantling of abortion rights.”
Kavanaugh, who is Catholic and formerly served as a law clerk for Kennedy, has long said he would broadly respect legal precedent, including Roe v. Wade. In his time in the Bush White House and his twelve-year stint on the influential D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, Kavanaugh has variously alarmed both pro-life and pro-choice advocates.
Top Senate Democrats, who have long said they would not seriously consider any of the candidates Trump was considering, also vowed to fight Kavanaugh, citing what they called an anti-abortion record.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called for killing the nomination.
“If we can successfully block this nomination, it could lead to a more independent, moderate selection that both parties could support,” Schumer said.
Tonight the Democrats will squirm like little salamanders in the mud. VD day is at hand; ” Victory over the Democrats”- their ideology of legislating from the bench will suffer a near fatal blow; a day where the conservative legacy will be cemented on the Supreme Court; a day honoring our Founding Fathers by interpreting their tome as it should be. But before we rejoice we must wait a few months, say by the end of September when the latest nominee is confirmed. It is now Bader-Ginsburg’s turn to crash and burn. A very sweet scenario to look forward to.
