President Trump should work hard to get judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmed swiftly for the Supreme Court such that the judge is in place to serve when the Court re-convenes on October 1.
Liberals are now going nuts over Kavanaugh. Yet did we see mass hysteria in 1993 when Bill Clinton nominated Ruth Bader Ginsburg who is so extreme that she once advised that nations consider modeling their constitutions on that of South Africa and not the US?
That is what is called militant thinking. Yet Nikitas3.com does not recall any conservative mania over Ginsburg’s nomination.
Democrats are making every type of charge about judge Kavanaugh. US senator Kirstin Gillibrand of New York said that Kavanaugh could “criminalize women”…
Huh?! Former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe tweeted:
The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come and will morph our Supreme Court into a political arm of the right-wing Republican Party.
This was possibly some type of reference that Roe v. Wade could be overturned but it is hard to know.
If so then McAuliffe is confusing his prediction about judge Kavanaugh with the fact that more than a million lives are threatened – in fact those lives are ended – every year by abortion.
It is fascinating how liberals reveal their real thinking in what they say about conservatives.
Democrat US senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut tweeted:
Brett Kavanaugh is a true Second Amendment radical
To liberals a ‘Second Amendment radical’ is someone who has read the Constitution and acknowledges that it says that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”.
‘Bolshevik Bernie’ Sanders, who is so far to the left that he spent his honeymoon in the communist Soviet Union in 1988, tweeted about judge Kavanaugh:
President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will be a rubber-stamp for an extreme, right-wing agenda pushed by corporations and billionaires. We must mobilize the American people to defeat Trump’s right-wing, reactionary nominee.
Bernie made no mention of his own extremist agenda that is being rejected all over the globe after failing in every way possible, including in his own withering state of Vermont.
By the way, we must wonder if the ‘billionaires’ that Sanders is so concerned about include hard-line socialists like Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg, the two richest men in America (combined wealth of $230 billion).
Meanwhile the loony Democrat muslim congressman Keith Ellison suggested that a Democratic Congress could impeach a Republican-appointed Supreme Court justice, which is considered virtually impossible.
Perhaps Ellison was confusing American law with the so-called ‘laws’ in backward muslim nations that no Westerner could identify.
And on and on. It is just amazing how everything is so extreme when all that president Trump promised was to nominate a Constitutional ‘originalist’ to the Court, which judge Kavanaugh appears to be.
Then again, these attacks are nothing new. Who could forget the horrendous treatment that eminently qualified judge Robert Bork, nominated by president Reagan, got in being vilified and finally denied a seat on the Supreme Court in 1987. Here is what Democrat US senator Ted Kennedy said about judge Bork:
Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the Government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is — and is often the only — protector of the individual rights that are the heart of our democracy… President Reagan is still our president. But he should not be able to reach out from the muck of Irangate, reach into the muck of Watergate and impose his reactionary vision of the Constitution on the Supreme Court and the next generation of Americans. No justice would be better than this injustice.
This is the type of extremist language and scaremongering that liberals have perfected over decades. Yet it is “Ted Kennedy’s America” that we really need to be frightened of, a place where young women would be afraid to ride in a car driven by a US senator, for fear of drowning.
What about the “high-tech lynching” of black Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas who was nominated by president George HW Bush? The Thomas nomination hearings, marred by unproven charges of sexual harassment, were abusive beyond belief toward one of the finest Americans ever. Anyone watching that travesty in 1991 knows what a ‘kangaroo court’ looks like.
Now we can expect mass frenzy over judge Kavanaugh to build for the next two months. It will be the latest form of hysteria from the left on three major subjects in just the last 5 months: Hatred of the NRA over the Florida school murders; revulsion at the Trump administration over illegal alien children being separated from their parents at the border; and now we will see unrestrained malice toward judge Kavanaugh.
There is a major drama developing in the US Senate. Judge Kavanuagh would be confirmed if all the Republicans (51 of them) vote ‘yes’, but there are two possible ‘no’ votes.
A third vote is not so sure either. Republican US senator John McCain of Arizona is sick and may not be present to vote. This leaves no margin for error. Even worse, McCain knows he is terminally ill but will not resign from the Senate so that there could be someone there voting, almost certainly his wife who would be appointed to McCain’s seat. This is just more of creepy McCain’s frantic call for attention in his dying days. This guy desperately wanted to be president.
On the other hand there are ten Democrat US senators running for re-election this coming November in “red states” that president Trump won in the Electoral College. These senators now must decide whether to vote for Kavanaugh in order to curry favor with their “red state” voters; or vote against Kavanaugh and risk losing their seats. Three or four of them – or more – may well vote ‘yes’.
Nikitas3.com has a warning for these senators: If you vote against Kavanaugh, you will lose your seats. And if you vote for him, you will probably lose your seat anyway since president Trump is going to campaign vigorously against you. You are truly trapped.
Rush Limbaugh had a caller into his radio program on July 10 who once had worked with judge Kavanaugh in the Bush administration. The caller said that the judge was one of the nicest, kindest and most honorable men that he had ever met. And if you watched president Trump’s announcement and introduction of Kavanaugh, and the judge’s short speech, you can see for yourself what a quality jurist looks like.
Enough said. Let’s get on with the confirmation.
