The Associated Press is REALLY worried about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The AP posted an article on Tuesday alerting that a “hard-right” Court might come back to haunt the GOP. On Monday, the news outlet suggested that “devout Catholic” judges like Kavanaugh might have trouble “upholding the law as written” in light of the Pope’s new decree on the death penalty.
After preaching about climate change on Friday’s Today show, Al Roker filled in for vacationing Megyn Kelly in the 9:00 a.m. ET hour and led a panel discussion celebrating liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg announcing that she wouldn’t retire from the bench for at least another five years.
On Monday, the liberal media breathed a collective sigh of relief over 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s announcement over the weekend that she plans to stay on the high court for at least another five years. The coverage demonstrated how even the thought of Donald Trump naming the liberal justice’s replacement strikes terror into the hearts of reporters.
On Monday's MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle, viewers got to see another case which demonstrates that the purpose of a Republican or right-leaning MSNBC contributor is to avoid disagreeing too aggressively with the more stridently liberal commentators as contributor and former Ted Cruz aide Rick Tyler failed to counter claims that Judge Brett Kavanaugh has "radical" views on abortion and gun rights.
All three networks on Tuesday and Wednesday ignored a blockbuster Second Amendment ruling to come out of the usually liberal Ninth Circuit. The pro-gun rights decision found that Americans DO have a constitutional right to openly carry outside of the home.
The exchange between anchor Félix de Bedout and U.S. Senator Robert Menéndez on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, aired on a recent episode of Unvision's public affairs show Al Punto, is emblematic of what must change at Univision’s news division if there is to be an honest effort to engage U.S. Hispanics from all walks of life.
Samantha Bee is demanding women take action against a man who could make abortion illegal. Or so she says. On her show Full Frontal July 18, host Samantha Bee ordered women to get “hysterical” over President Trump’s pick for next Supreme Court Justice: federal judge Brett Kavanaugh. She needn’t worry – they already have. But Bee’s fuss over abortion sounds like crying “wolf” after she called pro-lifers “d**kheads” of “toxic bullsh*t” in 2016 – not to mention other abortion outbursts.
Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement, leading to President Donald Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, has thrown progressives, the Democratic Party and the news media into an out-and-out tizzy. The online magazine Slate declared, “Anthony Kennedy Just Destroyed His Legacy as a Gay Rights Hero.” The New York Times' editorial board said about a second Trump court appointment, “It is a dark moment in the history of the court and the nation, and it's about to get a lot darker.”
The voice was instantly recognizable, even though its owner identified himself. ‘'The record shows he has a strange idea of what justice is” intoned American icon and movie star Gregory Peck. The “he” in question was Judge Robert Bork, and Peck was lending his voice to something new in American history: a television commercial attacking a nominee for the United States Supreme Court.
If Alexander Hamilton had been nominated for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court today, Democrats would likely oppose him. About the court, Hamilton said: “[A] limited Constitution ...can be preserved in practice no other way than through the medium of courts of justice, whose duty it must be to declare all acts contrary to the manifest tenor of the Constitution void. Without this, all the reservations of particular rights or privileges would amount to nothing. ..To deny this would be to affirm...that men acting by virtue of powers may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid...”
The liberal news media suffered a cataclysmic meltdown on June 27 over Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, with the resulting damage likely visible from space. Two weeks later, following President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, viewers were treated to a second round of hysterics.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt claimed that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell "delegitimized" Justice Anthony Kennedy's seat on the U.S. Supreme Court -- and the Court itself -- as he reacted to the selection of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as Kennedy's replacement. He also repeated a debunked claim that "Kennedy's son is Trump's banker at Deutsche Bank" -- a claim which was even disputed by his liberal MSNBC colleague, Stephanie Ruhle.
