The Party’s Almost Over

THE REAL REASON THE DEMS ARE GOING INSANE:
The Supreme Court’s days as a super-legislature are over, and Democrats aren’t happy about it

Democrats are upset about where the Supreme Court has been heading not because it isn’t doing its job, and not because it is overly partisan, but because they don’t like the fact that cases going there are increasingly being decided based on the Constitution and the law and not on motivated reasoning in search of liberals’ pet causes.

Kammy Mounts Her High Horse

Kamala Harris: Sept. 4 Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearing ‘Outrageous’

Poor Kammy… she slept her way to the top in politics, tries to pass herself off as black, and is now leading the effort to delay putting Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski have already said they will approve him, so there’s not much the Dems can do.

She Just Won’t Go Away

Ginsburg Speaks Out About Her Future on the Supreme Court

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg discussed her future on the bench Sunday, saying she hopes to remain in her position for another five years.
When asked last year about whether she was thinking of retiring, Ginsburg said, “as long as I can do the job full steam, I will do it.”
There are also reports she’s hired law clerks through 2020, making it clear she plans to stay on the job for at least a couple more years.

Supreme Tug of War

It’s a lost cause for the Democrats, but they have to try.

Klukowski: Democrats’ Demand for 1 Million Documents on Kavanaugh Is Obstruction
But this is merely an obstructionist tactic to push his confirmation into 2019 to harm Republicans in the midterms, and hoping to retake Senate control so they can keep the Supreme Court seat open until 2021, after the next presidential election.

CtH: IOW, they’re willing to leave the Supreme Court seat empty until 2021, meaning many controversial issues will be hung up in 4-4 ties and screw the citizens waiting for their cases to be settled. Continue reading

Settled Law?

2018_07 12 Progressives on law

From Mark Crutcher at Life Dynamics:

“This weekend, the rabid pro-abortion senator from Maine, Susan Collins, said that she would not support a nominee to the Supreme Court who is ‘hostile’ to abortion rights because ‘that would mean to me that their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law.’

“Her argument is that abortion is not even open to discussion since it is ‘settled law.’ From this, we can conclude that, had she been a senator in 1860, she would have voted against any nominee to the Court who was hostile to the right to own slaves. We can also reasonably assume she would have opposed any nominee to the Court who, in the 1900s, supported women’s suffrage. After all, male-only voting had been ‘settled law’ for over 100 years.

Stilton’s Seal of Approval

2018_07 11 Seals of Approval by Stilton

Per the cartoon above, we do expect Brett Kavanaugh to be dragged through Hell and high water before his eventual confirmation as a Supreme Court Justice.

But our real purpose in combining these two stories is to celebrate these two very different but deeply inspiring occurrences. The amazing rescue of a boys soccer team from a nightmarish, water-filled cave renews our hope for mankind in general. Support came from around the world to save these young lives, and the courage and sacrifice of those involved is humbling and awe-inspiring. Continue reading

Hysterical Hysteria

You knew it was coming. Democrats are as predictable as night following day. As soon as Justice Kennedy announced his retirement, the attack machine mobilized against the president’s pick as a successor, no matter who it was.

It’s Kavanaugh!

Trump Nominates Brett Kavanaugh to SCOTUS

Schumer, Leftists Melt Down Over Trump’s SCOTUS Pick ‘Kavanaugh Will Lead to the Deaths of Countless Women

Donald Trump’s decision to nominate a reactionary ideologue like Brett Kavanaugh and shift the balance of the U.S. Supreme Court even further right represents a generational assault on justice, freedom, and our country’s core democratic values.

“If Brett Kavanaugh survives the confirmation process, he will rapidly advance a fringe right agenda on the court that will accelerate plutocratic control of our economy and politics, actively undermine the steps our country must take towards greater racial equity, and directly lead to the deaths of countless women with the dismantling of abortion rights.

Let the Games Begin

The left has been screaming incoherently for the last month about (gasp) separating children from the adults who attempt to sneak into our country illegally to climb on the gravy train. Keep in mind, they couldn’t care less about these children. Never did. It’s just a convenient excuse to hammer the president as an issue for the midterms because they have nothing to offer except hate.

But that issue is about to go on the back burner. Trump, ever the showman with a flair for the dramatic, will announce his pick to replace Kennedy on Monday evening. The left has their next round of attacks pre-prepared. It’s down to about four and it appears to be down to Kethledge and Kavanaugh. Kethledge has been endorsed by Ted Cruz and is said to be soft on immigration. Continue reading

Trump’s Short List

2018_06 29 Call them racists by Gorrell

The anti-Trump SCOTUS talking points are out. All his nominees are “racist, white men who defend the Ku Klux Klan.” I’m sure that makes a ton of sense, seeing as his short list includes:

  • Two women.
  • One first generation Indian-American.
  • One man who studied in Mexico and is fluent in Spanish, who worked at a legal aid clinic representing poor Spanish-speaking immigrants, and who has been active in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
  • And, one man who wrote in a legal opinion that “being called the n-word by a supervisor … suffices by itself to establish a racially hostile work environment.”
