Trump Picks Brett Kavanaugh For Supreme Court

And liberals explode. There are entirely too many hottest of hot takes to even link. Here’s a fun one

Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s Supreme Court Pick, Is Probably the End of Abortion Rights and Same-Sex Marriage

Uh huh. How about

Brett Kavanaugh and the Supreme Court’s drastic shift to the right, cartoonsplained

There was zero problem from the media when Obama’s picks pushed it way to the Left. And Excitable Bob Casey

Casey: Trump Supreme Court Pick Represents a Corrupt Bargain and I Will Oppose It

Might want to actually interview him, as is your duty, Bob. And Democracy For America (snicker)

DFA says Kavanaugh “represents a generational assault on justice, freedom, core democratic values”

Then Loopy Ezra Klein

The Supreme Court vs. democracy

The Women’s March got a bit ahead of themselves in their press release

Twitchy has, of course, lots of Liberals losing their minds (the norm). You have Terry McCauliffe warning of a high body count, Cory Booker having a meltdown, and a whole gaggle of Democrats bloviating. Obviously, the NY Times is in a snit, saying we don’t know enough about Kavanaugh (funny, we knew almost nothing about Obama and they were good with that). The Washington Post is against him, as well. We expected that. And there are plenty of anti-Kavanaugh op-eds there, well, let’s face it, it’s all based on anti-Trump sentiment. The LA Times is suddenly wondering if the Supreme Court nomination process can be repaired. Paul Begala offers CNN’s opinion in stating that Red-state Democrat Senators should oppose Kavanaugh in total. Why? Like the rest, just because. They can couch their opposition in whatever terms they like, but, it’s all based on TDS and Republican Derangement Syndrome. If it was super squishy Jeb Bush in office, they’d do the same thing.

If they do not like it, then, per the paraphrase of Obama “Elections matter. I won; you lost. Deal with it.”

But, who really is Brett Kavanaugh? In reality, he has few vulnerabilities, and was actually the safe pick

Even though Democrats will go to any lengths to stop Kavanaugh, he presents them with few vulnerabilities.

He has written no opinions on their holy-of-holies, abortion or gay marriage. To the extent that he has written on these topics, he has observed that the government might have a compelling interest in providing contraceptives and that an alien might have a due process right to an abortion.

He has written no major opinions on free speech or religion, nor has he displayed any sympathies for the criminal defense bar.

Instead, Kavanaugh’s creates a deeper challenge to liberalism: rolling back the administrative state.

Progressives have evaded the Constitution’s checks and balances on the federal government by unceasingly expanding its regulatory reach, transferring the actual authority to make the rules from Congress to unelected bureaucrats, and then demanding that judges defer to the results virtually without question.

It is through this judicial-agency industrial complex where, as the Obama administration displayed on everything from immigration to education to health care, progressives have imposed their views on the American people and the states with little democratic accountability.

Kavanaugh has repeatedly challenged the foundations of this runaway state. He has written significant opinions overturning two misbegotten examples of this dynamic.

In the first, he found the Consumer Finance Protection Board (CFPB) violated the Constitution because it vested all power over consumer finance in the country in one person, but insulated him from removal by the president.

In the second, he struck down a new federal accounting board, because it too was insulated from presidential control, even though Article II of the Constitution vests the president, and the president alone, with the duty to see that “the Laws be Faithfully Executed.”

Let’s see Democrats argue that limiting power of the federal bureaucracy is a bad thing, as is returning power to the Legislative Branch.

But, what’s going to happen is Democrats and their minions will assail Judge Kavanaugh over what they see as a Constitutional Right to kill the unborn willy-nilly, along with a few other Left-wing commandments. It won’t be pretty, and they might not get the support they think they will from the average America

    You’re right. The Senate has an obligation to interview the President’s nominee, JudgeGarland Kavanaugh.

    I guess Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McTurtle, could argue that the Senate should wait until after the mid-terms, only about 3 months, not a year, away.

    He’s probably smarter than most of them, so they may end up wishing they hadn’t.

    Jeffery still doesn’t get politics ain’t beanbag.

  3. Dana says:

    Jeffrey Jeffery Jeff covjefe seems to think that Senator McConnell should somehow play nice. No, Senator McConnell should f(ornicating) play hardball, and ram through the nomination. If Ruth Bader Ginsberg should go to her eternal reward in October of 2024, President Trump should nominate the most conservative person possible, and Mr McConnell ram it through the Senate before the next President is elected.

    Take no f(ornicating) prisoners; we know that the Democrats won’t!

    Since Brett Kavanaugh is considered a “safe” middle of the road pick…
    Let us consider for a moment what a “safe” pick could possibly do in the future…

    We will undoubtedly see the Loonie Left and the media (but I repeat myself) dial it up to infinity and beyond – saying that this nominee is not just bad, but will result in the end of the world as we know it. And through all of the hearings and all that the world will see, the left will be seen as overplaying their hand and more importantly the American people will see them as the drama queens they are.

    Consider what happens IF…

    In a very short time, the American people are again treated to the left and the media going into absolute hysterics AGAIN, only this time instead of a “safe” pick we are treated to a died in the wool, originalist and first rate Liberty Lover? How much of the drama queens will the jaded American public put up with? But I predict that this will not only fail to slow down the left as they careen off the cliff. No, when they see public opinion start to turn against their clown car of silly, they will light it on fire and add megaphones and drones filming in high def as they descend towards their well deserved sploit at the bottom.

    But wait, there is more…what if?

    Instead of seeing this after a second Supreme Court nomination, if President Trump actually wins in 2020, we may very well see him pick one or even (gasp) two more for a total of FOUR Justices. Just the idea of that should be enough to spontaneously ignite and consume several of those precariously perched upon the twig of insanity on which they currently sway.

    Which is another happy reason for putting this postulation out among the interwebbies thingee (HeeHeeHee)
