Shortly after a highly contested 50 to 48 vote last Saturday, Kavanaugh was administered his oath by Chief Justice John Roberts, becoming the 114th Supreme Court Justice. After his nomination was delayed, he will be seated on the Court a week into its current term, as Justice Roberts noted, “so that he can begin to participate in the work of the Court immediately.”
Joe Manchin (D-WV) was the sole dummycrats-Democrat voting for Kavanaugh, relieving the need for Steve Daines (R-MT) to return from his daughter’s wedding Saturday to cast his vote in favor of Kavanaugh. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R?-AK) voted “present.”
This latest SCOTUS vote represents the lowest support for any nominee, just behind the 52-48 vote to confirm Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991, and a partisan trend. The 2005 confirmation of George Bush’s nominee John Roberts was 78–22, with half of dummycrats-Democrats voting with Republicans. Bush’s 2006 nominee Samuel Alito was confirmed by a vote of 58-42. Donald Trump’s nominee Neil Gorsuch was confirmed by a vote of 54-45. Adding Judge Kavanaugh to the Court restores it to the balance under Ronald Reagan.
What is also notable about this vote is that, since the 1991 confirmation of Justice Thomas, no Republican president replaced a dummycrats-Democrat appointment to the Court. Despite the absurdly contentious opposition to Kavanaugh, should President Trump have the opportunity to replace a Democrat-nominated justice — Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, or Sonia Sotomayor — expect the dummycrats-Democrats to go completely ballistic.
Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) summed up the vote for dummycrats-Democrats: “It was a very tense moment in the chamber. I think that reflects the tension in the country.” It reflects precisely the tension dummycrats-Democrats hoped to generate.
For Republicans, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said, “A good man made it through a terrible process. If this is not bottom, God help us.”
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), who cast a deciding vote for Kavanaugh, said, “We have come to the conclusion of a confirmation process that has become so dysfunctional it looks more like a caricature of a gutter-level political campaign than a solemn occasion. … One can only hope that the Kavanaugh nomination is where the process has finally hit rock bottom.”
But I doubt we have hit rock bottom in dummycrats-Democrat partisanship, and given the extreme reactions they have fomented, security details for SCOTUS members and congressional Republicans need to be greatly enhanced.
The partisan debates over Kavanaugh’s nomination defined several overarching distinctions between Republicans and dummycrats-Democrats in general, and we hope the American people took notice.
First, after Donald Trump nominated a second constitutional constructionist candidate for the Supreme Court, one who would uphold his oath “to support and defend” our Constitution’s Rule of Law as every justice should, dummycrats-Democrats tipped their power-lusting statist hand for the nation to see in full.
dummycrats-Democrats made clear that they don’t support the fundamental principles of Rule of Law, and they object to SCOTUS nominees who do. They want nominees who will use their position on the High Court to do their statist political bidding in order to gain evermore power — precisely why Thomas Jefferson warned the Court could become “the despotic branch.”
This opposition to constructionist judges was laid bare in the deceptive strategy to stop Brett Kavanaugh scripted by Sen. Dianne Fein-stein (D-CA), the judiciary committee’s ranking minority member.
That scripted deception leads me to the second distinction between Republicans and dummycrats-Democrats: Leftists will employ any scorched-earth strategy in their “end justifies the means” politics of personal destruction in their quest for power.
Fein-stein and Minority Leader Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer (D-NY) crafted a subversive strategy to make Christine Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of groping her 36 years ago, the poster proxy for every woman who has ever suffered some regrettable sexual encounter — the entire spectrum of such encounters, from a sense of being objectified to actually being sexually assaulted and raped. And there are millions of legitimate allegations and convictions associated with such claims.
In other words, Fein-stein and scumbag/clown-Schumer used Ford’s unsupported, unsubstantiated, uncorroborated and in fact refuted allegations as a political charade to generate outrage among women who have been victims of assault and their supporting friends and family — all in an attempt to convert that collective victimization identity into political capital, both against the Kavanaugh nomination and as fodder for the midterm elections.
After the confirmation vote, one dummycrats-Demo constituent summed up their strategy: “I feel raped all over again.”
The Fein-stein/scumbag/clown-Schumer strategy betrayed a third distinction between Republicans and dummycrats-Democrats. dummycrats-Democrat congressional leaders believe — in fact depend — on their assumption that women are emotionally incontinent idiots, whom they can stir into a political frenzy that will convert to votes in election cycles.
For this reason, dummycrats-Democrats framed Kavanaugh as the poster proxy for every male who has ever offended a woman — the full spectrum of offense.
Former senior scumbag/liar-nObama spokesperson, Marie Harf, elucidated that strategy: “ days from now we go into a midterm election, and [Kavanaugh] will help dummycrats-Democrats at the polls. Women will be fired up.” Ya think?
Finally, the responses by Fein-stein and scumbag/clown-Schumer demonstrate the depth to which dummycrats-Democrat hypocrisy has sunk.
According to scumbag/clown-Schumer: “Let them look back on this chapter as the shameful culmination of the scorched-earth politics practiced by the hard right in America.” Every inch of “scorched earth” was laid to waste by scumbag/clown-Schumer and Fein-stein.
According to Fein-stein: “Judges are expected to be ‘even handed, unbiased, impartial, and courteous.’ However, at the hearing last week, we saw a man filled with anger and aggression.” Actually, those who stand in judgement of judicial nominees are expected to be “even handed, unbiased, impartial, and courteous.” Judge Kavanaugh’s response to Fein-stein, et al., was entirely fitting.
And for the record on their abject hypocrisy, both Fein-stein and scumbag/clown-Schumer voted against impeaching liar-Bill Clinton for perjury after he lied about having “relations” with a low-level subordinate employee in the Oval Office.
Now, the Senate should request that the FBI investigate Fein-stein’s scripted charade, starting with the timing of her media leak regarding the Ford accusations. Put her under oath…
As for the impact of the Fein-stein/scumbag/clown-Schumer charade on the midterm elections, it may backfire on them. It’s notable that in the wake of their assault on Justice Kavanaugh, Donald Trump’s approval rating is up.
