Here is comments on WSJ:
The is a big & arrogant intellectual failure on the edtorial board of the OpEd page of the WSJ and a big part of the GOP establishment.
They say: "The change we expect would be a Court that returned to the role it played before the 1960s when the Justices became an engine of progressive policy. " And they say it proudly and as a positive. They go on to say: "But we hope it will be inclined to let most political questions be settled where they should be in a democracyby the political branches."
Their intellectual dishonesty hides what is not in reality joined, in history, between those two statments. A very great much of the "porgressive" legacy was NOT in fact made by the political branches but was merely dicatated by Surpreme Court judges, and at times over the heads of actual majorities in the national and states' political branches. Two cases alone demonstrate this - Roe V Wade and "gay" marriage.
Yet WSJ is happy Kavanaugh will let progressive judicial dictates stand.
ONLY time will tell.
Nominee K is exponentially better than Hillary nominee (Loretta Lynch).
There’s only one justice who rejects precedent wholly.
"Do you believe the court has right to ban contraception?"
"George, you may have the right to pee on the sidewalk, but I don't expect that to come up before the court either."
Kavanagh did appear to favor limitation of the Chevron decision that has allowed for expansion of the administrative state and their Star chamber justice system.
NSA decision, not so good.
I’ve suspected that was dangled as an incentive in the tarmac meeting between the pervert and the corrupt AG.
"The motto of my Jesuit high school was 'Men for Others.' Ive tried to live that creed."
Loyalty among Jesuits is second to none, especially in the context of his acceptance includes a literal affirmation of "living [a Jesuit] creed."
A Jesuit lives by the Hegelian Dialectic, knowing the surpassing worth of "the ends justify[ing] the means," therefore whatever his Jesuit Master commands, he will do it, to the amazement of all that might expect otherwise, quite possibly irrespective of our most ardent Conservative wishes.
The very same is true of President Trump, graduate of Georgetown (where he also sent Ivanka). Trump's accomplishment in this nomination was not so much getting a faithful Conservative, strict constructionist on SCOTUS as getting a faithful Jesuit.
