The front page of Sunday’s New York Times brought the expected comprehensive dissection of President Trump’s second Supreme Court justice nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, in 4,500 words: “Trump’s Choice: Beltway Insider Born And Bred – Father Was A Lobbyist – Supreme Court Nominee Is Being Promoted as Business Friendly.” A photo caption online made the ideological toneclear: “The Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, center with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Vice President Mike Pence, is the culmination of a 30-year conservative movement to shift the judiciary to the right.”
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...”
According to Lauren Sandler, opinion columnist for Huffington Post, conservative’s “source document for understanding the rights of Americans is not the Constitution, but the New Testament.” She believes they use this document to force women to submit to their husbands and have babies.
Will democracy “die” if Americans don’t know that Brett Kavanaugh’s a Nationals super fan? The Washington Post seems to think so, devoting an entire article in today’s paper about how Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court racked up debt buying Washington Nationals’ baseball tickets, over the past decade...which he paid off.
It has been two days since Brett Kavanaugh’s promotion and lefty media have already been ravenous in their desire to do as much damage as possible to his character. Monday morning’s Huffpo piece attacked Kavanaugh’s image as a good father to two young girls as a “shameless” ruse to distract from his anti-women conservatism.
The opposition to the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court justice has evolved from the merely desperate to the hilariously desperate. A good example of the latter can be seen in the July 10 New York magazine in which writer Ed Kilgore suggests that the Maine Democrats politically bribe Republican Senator Susan Collins with a promise by their state chairman to endorse her when she is up for re-election in 2020.
The left has been in a frenzy since Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court on Monday. They’ve found their ammunition against the nominee in a in a 2009 article for the Minnesota Law Review written by Kavanaugh, in which he argued that a president should be exempt from investigation and civil suits until they are out of office or impeached and removed from office. The D.C. Circuit Court judge noted in the article that it would take an act of Congress to change the law, which would take pressure off the shoulders of those who have the world’s most stressful job.
When the left truly has nothing bad they can say about the latest action from the President, they resort to childish insults and cheap shots. It seems like the writers of CBS’s The Late Show had that problem Tuesday night when they wrote host Stephen Colbert’s monologue about Trump’s Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh, lamely bashing him for picking from a pool of “white guys” that want to take away people’s “rights.”
Since the 1980s, the well-worn liberal playbook is to claim that Republican appointees to the Supreme Court should be voted down as ideologues who are outside the judicial mainstream. The establishment media aids this tactic by often tagging GOP nominees as “conservative,” while ignoring — or even disputing — the liberal bent of Democratic nominees to the Court. True to form, ABC, CBS and NBC’s morning and evening broadcasts branded Judge Brett Kavanaugh a “conservative” a total of eleven times in the first 24 hours since his nomination by President Trump.
During Tuesday’s World News Tonight, ABC revealed their key concerns with Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court. Along with speculation of him helping to overturn Roe v. Wade, the network boosted Democratic worries that efforts to prosecute the President via the special counsel would end.
Vice President Mike Pence went on a media tour Tuesday to promote Judge Brett Kavanaugh as President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. Needless to say, his CNN stop went as well as you’d expect. On The Situation Room, chief political correspondent Dana Bash grilled Pence about whether he and the President would be upset if Kavanaugh didn’t overturn Roe v. Wade (thus making abortion illegal in one way or another).
