Brett Kavanaugh

The Late Hit on Judge Kavanaugh

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

Palpable here is the desperation of the left to derail Kavanaugh, lest his elevation to the high court imperil their agenda and the social revolution that the Warren Court and its progeny have been able to impose upon the nation. If Kavanaugh is elevated, the judicial dictatorship of decades past, going back to the salad days of Earl Warren, William Brennan, Hugo Black and "Wild Bill" Douglas, will have reached its end. A new era will have begun. That is what is at stake.

Let’s Hope Justice Kavanaugh Avenges This Disgusting Democrat Slander

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Luckily, the Republicans are getting woke to the okey-done, and recognize this as a Hail Satan play by Democrats who realize that the Brett Kavanaugh Express is rolling toward the confirmation station. Brett Kavanaugh is going to be confirmed. And when he is a justice on the Supreme Court, I hope he remembers what these people did to him. I hope he gives them the same kind of lesson in the power of payback that Clarence Thomas has delivered for nearly three decades.

Don't let Democrats recreate the Anita Hill circus for Kavanaugh

Editors, Washington Examiner

This questioning shouldn’t be in public, which would recreate the shameful circus of the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill hearings, which is what Democrats want, of course. It should be behind closed doors with no television cameras. The likes of Feinstein and Schumer, and Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker, have shown how happy they are to smear and impugn Kavanaugh dishonestly for political points. Major media have shown themselves too credulous or keen on these theatrics.

Democrats Ruthlessly Destroy Brett Kavanaugh

Update: Democrats have refused to participate in a conference call with Judge Kavanaugh scheduled for today, forcing the Committee to postpone hearing from Judge Kavanaugh and his accuser until Monday, Sept. 25.  Anyone who thinks the next Democratic administration will be a benign era in American history should take a good look at what is happening to Brett Kavanaugh and recognize that the new Far Left Democratic Party’s impulse for power recognizes no limits in its ruthlessness. We urge CHQ readers to use the call list in this article to demand the prompt confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.

Opposition to Kavanaugh devolves into farce

J. Christian Adams, The Hill

Kavanaugh will be confirmed, and it will carry lessons for the next high court nomination that President Trump makes. Democrats would be wise to wrest control of the confirmation fight away from the crazies in their base. If that happens, Republicans might find a way to ensure that the farce that opposed Kavanaugh’s nomination enjoys a sequel. Picking a nominee that triggers them ought to do the trick.

No fourth branch of government

Editors, Washington Examiner

On this Constitution Day, it is worth reflecting that in recent years, the dangerous expansion of executive authority has taken two forms. The first covers various attempts by the executive to usurp congressional power, as when a president illegally declared war or claimed the right to make recess appointments without a Senate recess. The second is the attempt to install independent agency heads (as at the CFPB) who are unaccountable to the elected branches of government. If you fear an over-powerful executive, you should be afraid of Kavanaugh’s questioners, not of Kavanaugh himself.

A High-Tech Lynching Redux

It is not surprising to us that since July Democrats have been sitting on these uncorroborated allegations of sexual misconduct during Judge Brett Kavanaugh's high school years. Democrats tried the much the same kind of last minute "high-tech lynching" to derail Justice Clarence Thomas' nomination.

Collins, Kavanaugh, and the Rewards of ‘Moderation’

David Catron, The American Spectator

Democrats made jackasses of themselves during the judge’s hearings, resorted to an anonymous source to defame him, and sit by as their special interest accomplices engage in a campaign of intimidation against a Republican Senator they heretofore claimed to admire. There’s a lesson in all this for “moderate” GOP politicians and the electorate. The Democrats can’t be trusted — ever. They, and the people who finance them, are dangerous political predators who will always turn on you, sooner or later.

Kavanaugh might be the left's nightmare, but he will restore the Supreme Court to its proper role

Ned Ryun, Fox News

Hopefully, by the time the Trump presidency ends the Supreme Court will be is stacked with seven originalists who will put the Supreme Court out of reach of the left for a generation, significantly diminishing the administrative state. As the old saying goes: “Elections have consequences.” One of the consequences of electing Donald Trump as president was to enable him to appoint originalist judges so that we might actually get America back to some semblance of a constitutional republic, with real separation of powers.

Knights of Columbus Throw Political Weight Behind Kavanagh

The world's largest Catholic family, fraternal and service organization, the Knights of Columbus, has thrown its political weight behind the campaign to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Phone calls from constituents in Catholic heavy states could sway uncommitted Democratic Senators listed in this article.

Kavanaugh Vote Count Close: Call Senators Today

Four Republican Senators have yet to clearly commit to vote for Judge Kavanaugh: Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska (202-224-6665) and Susan Collins of Maine (202-224-2523) are the top priorities. While Senators Jeff Flake of Arizona (202-224-4521) and Ben Sasse of Nebraska (202-224-4224) need firming up.

Conservatives Concerned About Anti-Kavanaugh Violence to Block Senate Vote

A new FedUp PAC poll found a solid majority of 73.8% agree that “the radical Democrats opposing Kavanaugh will do anything to stop him, and will turn to violence if that is the only way to prevent a Senate vote to confirm him.”

On the Supreme Court, Democrats finally get their just deserts 31 years later

Noemie Emery, Washington Examiner

Democrats are now even further behind than when they started, with Donald Trump and Mike Pence in positions of power, about to cement a conservative Supreme Court majority for who knows how many more years. One could feel sorry for them, if only they didn't so richly deserve this comeuppance. Do you feel better, Robert Bork, now that justice has triumphed? Happy now, Teddy Kennedy; and Joe Biden, and Harry Reid?

The Kavanaugh Hearing: A Democrat Campaign Circus

Over the course of the long journey to 2020, the Kavanaugh hearings were just one small step toward the Democratic presidential nomination and Booker and Harris, while they often looked like clowns to conservatives, put on the show that the new Far Left Democratic Party’s primary voters crave.

Senate Democrats Prove They’re Unfit to Govern

David Catron, The American Spectator

The confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice is a serious undertaking. But the Democrats have shown themselves to be utterly irresponsible in the discharge of their constitutional duties in this process. Their frivolous objections to proceeding with the hearings, despicable coordination with protesters whose antics were so disgusting that the nominee had to remove his children from the room, and their lack of real concern for any issue unrelated to removing the President from office reveal that the Democrats are too corrupt to be trusted with real power anytime soon.

Eminently qualified Kavanaugh and embittered Democrats

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Judge Kavanaugh enjoys bipartisan support outside the Senate, but that won’t matter. It’s all about politics now, not the Constitution or the law. Judge Kavanaugh is likely to win confirmation, but the behavior of some senators may further sour the public’s view of Washington. Whether the hearings will affect voter turnout in November is unknown. Pollsters predict doom for Republicans, but their record of failure with past forecasts (note the 2016 election) does not give them much credibility.

The Supreme Court's days as a super-legislature are over, and Democrats aren't happy about it

Editors, Washington Examiner

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. The good news is that the Supreme Court has been and likely will continue moving back in the direction of providing predictable, law-based and Constitution-based rulings, rather than moving forward the Left's agenda. That's why the Democrats are fuming.

Democrats wage a losing battle over Kavanaugh

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

It’s easy to dismiss the theatrical hijacking as nothing more than politics as usual. But that would be a mistake because, with apologies to Shakespeare, in this case the sound and fury signify something. It marked the moment when there was no longer a meaningful difference between the aim of elected Democrats and their unelected supporters in the audience. They were united in their determination to shut down the process because they both believe that if they can’t win, the game should be canceled.

By Whom Would You Want To Be Judged: Brett Kavanaugh Or Senate Democrats?

By whom would you want to be judged; someone who is bound by the plain meaning of the Constitution, the statutory law and Supreme Court precedent, or someone who, like the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, will judge you according to their own personal whims and political goals?
