Skip to comments.Vanity: Kavanaugh hearings, democrats working against the constitution
Posted on 09/07/2018 11:49:44 AM PDT by Jim Robinson
While watching the Kavanaugh hearings during the last few days, I'm impressed by the fact that the democrats are basically calling for our constitution to be dissolved.
Got news for them. The central government was never intended by our Founders or the constitution to be a provider of health, education, housing, welfare, etc. In fact, the powers of the federal government are restricted to only those powers actually enumerated in the constitution and all other powers are reserved to the states and the people.
Regarding the democrat parade of victims and sob stories: If you are broke or sick, unable to get a job, unable to get an education, unable to afford birth control or abortions or medicine, unable to find a doctor, are a victim of a crime, victim of offensive language, etc, it's not a federal issue. You need to find a private charity or go to a community, county, state agency or clinic, pro bono legal service, etc, to help you with your personal problems.
And, no, the New Deal and the Great Society, etc, did not [legally] abolish the constitution, even though the democrats [and some RINOs] wish that were true.
Likewise, SCOTUS rulings, precedent, slippage in societal mores, common usage, current understanding, etc., does not abolish or amend the constitution.
It's going to take a whole lot more than the above for our sick democrat society to abolish the first and second amendments, and or do away with our constitution.
And when they try, they'd best bring their lunch... and a lantern, because it's going to be a long day.
Taxman Bravo Zulu! Jim!
I think it's a bunch of theater to get 'em some sound bites about how tough they are.
They don't have the votes to deny Kavanaugh so they're milking the show for drama points.
Makes 'em look weak and desperate but nobody asked me. ;-)
This IS NOT what Democracy looks like. This is MOB RULE.
Jim, as much as we have disdain for Lindsey Graham, I can’t deny he conducted an excellent one-on-one with Judge Kavanaugh.
Here’s a link to the exchange:
Bottomline, Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed! This is a man that grabbed my heart with his account of his community service and his Christian perspective. No doubt whatsoever he will be a great, great Supreme Court Justice!
Televising....is just pure politics. No reason for it. The People are not voting for him.
The Senate is doing their job....advise and consent.
And in the end....it should be about 99-1.
I thought McConnell was making a big mistake scheduling the confirmation so late, close to the midterm elections. I knew the commiecrats would make a big show of it, hoping to enrage, activate their voters for the midterms. However the way its turning out, the D antics are soooooo disgusting, outrageous - that maybe theyve turned on ten percent of their voters while turning off everyone else. It looks like McConnell called this one perfectly ?
I didn’t have the time or inclination to watch all of these hearings, but I did find Ted Cruz’s questioning of Kavanaugh on YouTube. I highly recommend watching it.
You’ll see 30 minutes of insightful discussions of the role of the judiciary, the significance of various constitutional amendments and the importance of free speech and religious liberty. Every few minutes you’ll hear this discussion being interrupted by some paid Democrat protester shouting meaningless slogans.
This video tells you everything you need to know about today’s Democrat party.
It’s called subversion... they are (as usual) working to subvert the constitution and the procedures that have been in place for over 200 years
[Democrats working against the Constitution]
It’s what they do. Every day of the week.
Like the Communist Lying Liberal Main-Stream Media.
Democrats believe in straight democracy which IS mob rule.
They can’t stand that we are a republic.
The Dems picked the wrong guy try and denigrate, Judge Kavanaugh made several look like fools.
Well stated Jim with all of their comments and talks about the Constitution being a “living” (read keeping up with the times and mores) document they are seeking to claim or steal it from it’s position and legislate in this case from the bench.
Speaking as someone whose family left Europe to escape the tyranny of Monarchs and have freedom of thought and faith I will never bend my knee or bow to their demands.
They are in my estimation too clever by more then half and assisted by the real low info voters who seek Government over God they want to be worshiped and acknowledged as His replacement.
Not gonna happen, just as you named this site FreeRepublic that is what we are moving back to and will be again.
Sic Semper Tyrranis!
I think the owner gets a pass.
Yes, they are - but that’s what democrats do.
Democracy IS mob rule.
