Is Brett Kavanaugh Catholic?

Democrats’ demented assault on Brett Kavanaugh

Texas may have an ally to gain if President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is confirmed. The Democrats' left-wing base will demand that they vote "no" on Kavanaugh, while the trio's pro-Trump constituents will demand they vote "yes".

Remember: This is precisely what McConnell flagged for Trump as a potential problem with Kavanaugh's nomination: Never that he wasn't qualified, but that his extensive time in government service, and the documents that come with it, cannot only lead to possible surprises and also give Democrats grounds - legitimate or not - to delay consideration of the nomination. "Throughout his judicial career, Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated a strong commitment to upholding the law, rather than legislating from the bench".

Kavanaugh mentioned how he serves as the CYO basketball coach for his daughter's team and how much they enjoyed attending a U.Conn women's basketball game. His father went to law school at night, he added. But faced with President Trump's ability to exercise that same power (even if just to undo Obama's orders), they scream "Fascism!"

Kavanaugh even name dropped Justice Elena Kagan in his remarks.

Writing for the Washington Post "Fact-Checker," Salvador Rizzo agrees: "Kavanaugh's position in this article is different from saying the president can't be indicted under existing law". John Hoeven, R-N.D., who was in the White House during the president's news conference.

While Kavanaugh wrote that legal action against a president should be deferred, he also noted there is no current law that requires that. That opinion is not shocking, it's held by many legal experts, Republican and Democrat, alike.

Robert Mueller reportedly is among those who believes a president can not be indicted when in office. He was more empathetic to how a prosecution could interfere with presidential duties. "On occasion, a Kavanaugh opinion siding with the EPA's opponents has been a win for environmental interests, as in Natural Resources Defense Council v. EPA, in 2014, in which he wrote an opinion that vacated an EPA rule establishing an affirmative defense for cement-kiln operators sued for exceeding emission limits". In multiple opinions setting out this position, he has relied not on constitutional text - indeed, he conceded that "based exclusively on the text" of the Constitution, the defendant "might have a point" - but instead on historical precedents (such as the trial of the Lincoln assassination co-conspirators) that scholars have thoroughly debunked as supporting Kavanaugh's claim. But that didn't stop him from nominating Bush staffer Kavanaugh. The poll I cited above found that 68 percent of North Dakota voters want Heitkamp to vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Papa John's founder reportedly used racial slur during conference call

Pence said he was confident that the members of both parties, as well as the American people, would come to realize that Kavanaugh "is quite simply the most qualified and the most deserving nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States".

Arch enemy Trump is going to beat him with Judge Kavanaugh.

What were the Democrats thinking?

To be clear, there is no question that Kavanaugh is a thoughtful, careful and exceptionally bright jurist.

Sen. Richard J. Durbin of IL, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, suggested on NBC's "Meet the Press" that these vulnerable red-state Democrats should sacrifice their reelection to stop Trump's nominee.

While Republicans reaffirmed their intention to process the nomination well ahead of the November midterm elections, Democrats argued Kavanaugh's record deserves painstaking scrutiny that must not be rushed. The court's oldest remaining justices, two liberals and a conservative who are 85, 79 and 70, haven't suggested they're going anywhere and appear in fine health.
