The First Day of Kavanaugh Hearings, and Democrats Embarrass Themselves. by The Elephant's Child

Today is the first day of the hearings on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be a Justice of the Supreme Court. Why are we not surprised to learn that Democrats plotted to disrupt the Kavanaugh hearing? Dick Durbin admitted that Democrats plotted over the weekend during a conference call by Charles Schumer on how to use protests and interruptions to disrupt the hearings.  Democrats obligingly threw a tantrum, interrupting the proceedings 62 times without waiting for proper recognition from the chair, speaking out of turn. Dianne Feinstein  claimed that “More people will die in mass shootings if Brett Kavanaugh gets confirmed.” Which is a remarkably silly statement.

The usual Hollywood far-lefties screeched and demonstrated clearly that they have no understanding whatsoever of the Supreme Court, the job of the justices, and how the law works. They also don’t seem to grasp the idea that their big mouths and embarrassing behavior has meant that a lot of Americans have quit watching current Hollywood movies in favor of  British movies, or old or even silent movies instead. Some of us read instead, and a good book beats another car chase easily.

The Supreme Court chooses what cases put before the court that they will hear. It’s cases that cannot be solved successfully by a lower court. If Judge Kavanaugh were an ardent opponent of abortion or a passionate member of the NRA (he’s not) he would have to recuse himself. And he would have to wait for a difficult case that suggested that Roe v. Wade was somehow improperly decided. The idea that a conservative justice threatens laws that the Left holds dear is not only silly, but demonstrates ignorance of our independent judiciary. It has long been clear that Democrats are poorly informed about just how our Constitutional Republic is supposed to work. When you are opposed to Capitalism, that goes with the territory.

Brett Kavanaugh is an outstanding nomination to the Supreme Court. He has a long record of carefully conceived decisions, some of which the Supreme Court has referred to in their decisions. The American Bar Association has recommended him highly. The Democrats have investigated him, every case he has ruled on, they have examined his wife’s emails and decisions as a town manager of the small incorporated city where they live (one restaurant). Before they were married, she served as personal secretary to President George W. Bush, and was a personal assistant while he was Governor of Texas. The Bushes attended the Kavanaugh wedding. Having found no dirt so far, Democrats want the record of every moment that Kavanaugh was part of the Bush administration. He may well be the best qualified nominee ever to appear before Congress.

Kamala Harris (clearly running for the Democrat’s nomination for President) made a fool of herself with interruptions and ill-informed statements.

Democrats want liberal politicians on Supreme Court, not judges who respect the constitution. More political grandstanding this week from dems but Kavanaugh gets confirmed 51-49. Maybe up to 54 votes with some dems crossing over

Of course. They are so completely focused on being in charge, ruling, enjoying the perks of being a senator or representative that they have forgotten why they are there. So sure of their rights, they don’t bother with understanding history or the simple fact that Capitalism has been the greatest factor in a prosperous country and a free people. Sad.
