Democrats are getting hysterical about the prospect of Judge Brett Kavanaugh being seated on the Supreme Court. Most of their hyperventilating is nonsense.
In a desperate attempt to block Kavanaughs confirmation by the Senate, the Democrats are making wild claims that abortion would be banned, people would be dying in the streets, and the president would gain immunity from investigation and prosecution if Kavanaugh joins the nations highest court.
Time for a reality check. Lets all take a deep breath and look at the facts about the judge who President Trump has nominated to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Kavanaugh currently serves on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Hes not some right-wing extremist who would run wild like the proverbial bull in the china shop overturning legal precedents, despite what the Democrats claim.
Kavanaugh is dedicated to judging cases based on the evidence and dedicated to following the Constitution as it is written. He is a firm opponent of legislating from the bench to support his ideological views.
When he accepted President Trumps nomination to the Supreme Court in televised remarks, Kavanaugh made this crystal clear, saying: A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law. A judge must interpret statutes as written, and a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent.
Lower court judges are supposed to follow Supreme Court precedent, whether or not they personally agree with the decision. When judges ignore precedent, it is easy to infer that they are acting on their own political biases.
However, Kavanaugh has been a consistent follower of precedent while he has been on the D.C. Circuit Court. The appellate court is widely acknowledged to be the nations second......

The democraps are trying to whip up ANY division among we the people, because if the people awaken to what enemies the democrap party are to the Republic democrats will be dismissed into the dustbin of history for their treacheries.
Now wait just a doggone minute! It sounds to me there isn't much room in Kavanaugh's world for a "wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences [who] would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."
Part of the problem however is that we have a potpourri of cruft among which are some nuggets of things that a more seriously Judeo-Christian country would have officially put into the mix. There’s juuuuuuuust enough similarity to reality in the modern profligate “liberal’s” complaints to make us a bit uneasy... and so the devil plays on our guilts.
The Roberts court has only biffed one decision; Obama care. The rest they have shown restraint and not written new law.
Whenever this sc nomination is mentioned, I cant help but wondering when Ginsburg gets Scaliaed. That will be real fun, potentially in parallel with 2016 election night
ANY President does have and should have immunity from prosecution. It is a long standing belief among legal experts that the President can't be indicted, and for good reason. It would would make it impossible to execute his duties. Of course this President hasn't done remotely done anything that warrants prosecution anyway, so this is the usual Democrat arguments designed to convince the loony and stupid.
As for investigation, the court could rule that Mueller has exceeded his legal authority in various ways, and that Rosenstein has no legal authority to allow Mueller to do much of what he has done. But that would actually be enforcing the constitution.
I don’t care what his record is, or how he will be on the Supreme court, all I know is the New York Times along with others, is ACTUALLY LOOKING AT KAVANAUGH’S WIFE’S SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS TO FIND SOMEHTING, ANYTHING, THAT WILL DISQUALIFY.
I am ashamed to live in the same country with such horrible, corrupt journalists.
I thought tax cuts were supposed to have people dying in the streets. Or maybe it was plastic straws....
I think that 2009 post about her favorite pot roast recipe might just sink him. ;O)
A decision based majority on precedent is possibly a deviation AWAY from the original intent of the words in the Constitution as they were meant at the time they were written. Precedent rulings can be a bolt-on to original intent by re-defining the meanings of words and phrases. Being informed by precedent is fine as long as in your argument or dissent the primary focus is to engage in the the meaning of the Constitutions original intent at the time it was written.
Forgot to add:
What if the precedent opinion was written by a justice that leaned socialist and was intent on nudging the country away from the Constitution, fully knowing their part was just one hair on the head of the 200 year cause toward taking down the original intent?
Did you forget Obergefell? A right to gay marriage in the US Constitution? Really?
That one too.
It was large sodas ... and chocolate, they always want to take away my chocolate.
Hear, hear! The devil wants us to believe that weakness is strength. Obviously this would lead us to make destructive choices. To me, this is the simplest possible definition of liberalism.
I would emend, as where once-Christianized liberality went when it sinned and then went secular.
Rosa Parks, meaning the best she knew, was set up by secular communists. If she’d known that they were going to eat America’s spiritual lunch in return for one fix to racism problems, she might have approached it differently.
Christendom needs to put on its mind of Christ thinking cap once more.
But the bible says when we are weak (in Christ with its lamb like meekness backed up by the awesome Lion of Judah’s might) then we are strong. If the left has maneuvered the right into worshiping sheer worldly power in reaction, it has spread sin in America.
