Skip to comments.Dem Objections to Supreme Court Nominee Mount [semi-satire]
Posted on 09/04/2018 10:22:13 AM PDT by John Semmens
Democrats objections to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh continue to mount. Sen. Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) complains that all I see from his record is a slavish devotion to the written law. I see no willingness to consider the unwritten law or the social justice implications of refusing to create new laws when circumstances warrant it.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (Conn) found Kavanaughs lack of military experience a bit troubling. My Vietnam service has been an essential building block of my career. I couldnt have been the effective senator I have been without it.
Sen. Christopher Coons (Del) lamented the inadequate paper trail provided by the Republicans. We need to see every document Judge Kavanaugh has ever touched if we are to give the fully informed advice and consent that the Constitution has assigned to us as senators.
The every document demand amounts to nearly 3 million additional pages and would take many months to assemble. Right now the senators have access to 500,000 pages of documentsmore than twice as many pages as have been provided for any previous Supreme Court nominee by either Party.
Sen. Thom Tillis (R-SC) derided what he labeled an insatiable appetite for irrelevant trivia. The key documents senators should be reading to evaluate Judge Kavanaughs fitness are his written decisions in actual cases. These are the instances in which a judge has to rule on the law. Any admin work he might have done before he was a judge isnt pertinent to or indicative of his legal reasoning.

The Democrats showed their disrespect to the American people today by prejudging a Supreme Court nominee and continuing to disrupt the process. I can’t believe any American watching this would vote to put them back into power.
IIRC, EVERY member og Congress has to take an oath to ‘Defend the Laws of the USA.....
This idiot from Hawaii thinks that is a bad thing for a Supreme Court Justice to do?
This ‘person’ from Hawaii is embarrassing herself & her state. What an idiot.
Really? I think we would stand a much higher chance of verifying the validity than we would the Trump dossier.
The leftists trtied to make the Confirmation Hearing into a protest pseudo event, based on a litany of other pseudo events concerning President Trump.
What a laugh. The Dems showed America that they are ALL a bunch of light weight pikers.
The screamed interruptions from interest groups were allowed and they were prompted and warned by Capitol police. After a dozen warnings or so, the special interest resistance a$$hats were escorted peacefully from the hearing room. They had what they wanted, another pseudo event to add to the huge pile of pseudo events the lefty Senators had Trumped up ( pardon the pun.) I’d say PDJT occupies whatever real estate these Dem Senators have in their narrow squeegee little minds. Trump owns them! They can’t even think straight.
I thought Leahy would pish himself when there was no postponement of the hearing; he had to exit for a geriatric bladder break, Cory Booker showed his complete idiocy and disrespect for the hearing process, like a well trained radical Alinsky man should/S.( Grassley; “ Are you through yet?” LOL)
“I cant believe any American watching this would vote to put them back into power.”
You’re kidding, right?
Mrs Kavanaugh oblingly sent Sen Coons his children's report cards (touched by the judge).......
and some grammar school essays their father helped them with.
Only SEMI satire - it’s actually quite close to the truth
Both the Nazis and Communist found that if you successfully propagandize kids you can win over the country. The same thing the Democrats are now doing in this Republic.
I wish I was kidding.
