Supreme Identity Politics

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Yet another red flag raised regarding supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Is our newest supreme Court justice an independent jurist or is he just another Republican caveman, who the left can bend and shape to their will by just exerting political pressure?

Recall, during his confirmation, justice Kavanaugh declared that should he be confirmed he would hire an all-female crew to clerk for him.

And that he did. For his “effort,” fellow justice and radical leftist, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, better known as Notorious RBG, praised him for it.

“If confirmed, I’ll be the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all-women law clerks. That is who I am,” said Kavanaugh.

“Justice Kavanaugh made history by bringing on board an all-female law clerk crew. Thanks to his selections, the Court has this Term, for the first time ever, more women than men serving as law clerks,” Ginsburg said at the Second Circuit Judicial Conference on Friday.

Well Yay! Identity politics has officially infected everything. read more

WND Exclusive – Justice Kavanaugh Will Only Drift Left From Here

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

I can’t quite figure out what Rush Limbaugh is up to regarding the recent Supreme Court ruling by Justice Brett Kavanaugh. I can’t figure out whether Rush is being critical of Kavanaugh, or instead trying to give a veiled excuse for his recent siding with the anti-constitutionalists on the court.

Normally, it’s easy to know exactly where Rush stands on any topic or event. It’s easy because he’s so predictably conservative and constitutional.

But Limbaugh has been noticeably different since Trump was elected. Although there is no doubt of Trump’s love of country and his desire to put America first, it’s also common knowledge that he is not an ideological conservative or advocate for small, limited and less expensive government. He just wants the U.S. citizen to get their money’s worth. This is and will continue to be a bone of contention for us constitutionalists. read more

Brett Kavanaugh Continues to Drive Leftists Crazy

Parents – You must be so proud of your Woke offspring, as they mindlessly protest a man who was clearly innocent of all charges leveled against him. But facts no longer matter to college campus snowflakes who ironically attempt to bully anyone they disagree with. Or more precisely, anyone they are told to disagree with. And at the University named for one my revolutionary heroes, George Mason, nonetheless.

Students protest visiting Professor Brett Kavanaugh as threat to ‘mental health’

Some students at George Mason University continue to put pressure on campus leaders to fire U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh from his new post as a visiting law professor. read more

Dershowitz Exposes Left’s Hypocrisy

from Alan Dershowitz at NewsMax:

What If Kavanaugh Was a Liberal Muslim Accused of Terrorism?

As a law professor for half a century, I tested the consistency and strength of my students’ arguments by constructing thought experiments in the form of challenging hypothetical cases — we called them hypos. So let’s construct one to test the arguments being offered in the Kavanaugh case.

A thought experiment: President Hillary Clinton nominates the first Muslim-American to the Supreme Court. Let’s call him Amir Hassan. He is highly qualified and his nomination is widely supported by most Democrats and some centrists.

Most Republicans oppose him and accuse him of being a judicial activist. Then several witnesses place him at a mosque at which terrorism was advocated. He claims he went there to hear all sides of the issue. One witness places him in a terrorism training camp but that account is not corroborated. One final witness identifies him as the man who planted the bomb that blew off his leg at a demonstration. He categorically denies any association with terrorism. read more

Liberal Commenter Insists the Left is NOT Out to Destroy Kavanaugh – Part Two

The following is part two of a very lengthy comment someone sent me to a recent World Net Daily article I wrote.

I will not recap part one, although you may review it here.

Once again, my responses to the commenter are indented.

Commenter: Kavanaugh’s conservative views on abortion are not the only reason why the Democrats oppose him. He is an opponent of gay rights and a corporate shill who supports corporate greed over the rights of individual Americans.

Actually I’ve heard Kavanaugh speak of the Bill of Rights – of which he is a supporter. You know the Bill of Rights, which rather nicely delineates the rights of all Americans equally. It is the left who in fact specifies that we need special rights for “special” people or groups.

And yes, he supports corporate greed, as you put it, because he believes, like our silly Founding Fathers, that government should have little authority to regulate business … to death. read more

Liberal Commenter Insists the Left is NOT Out to Destroy Kavanaugh – Part One

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday, I received a rather lengthy rebuttal to my World Net Daily Article entitled:
Religion Drives the Desire to Destroy Kavanaugh.”

It was comprehensive and quite revealing of the thinking of the left. So much so, that I thought I would post it, anonymously, as well as my responses to several of the commenter’s (talking) points.

Unfortunately, as it is so long, I must break it up into at least two, maybe more parts.

My responses are indented.

The commenter writes: “Sir: No one has set out to “destroy” Brett Kavanaugh. However, the accusations against him seem quite creditable. Only he knows whether he actually attempted to assault Dr. Ford sexually over 30 years ago. And Dr. Ford, unless her memory has been faulty.”

On this, we will have to agree to disagree. From everything I’ve heard, seen, and read, all there are are baseless accusations and convenient “memory” lapses from every accuser. Not a single person has come forth regarding any of them to corroborate the women’s stories. That is rather far-fetched, even with so much time past. And with a lack of any evidence or corroboration, any reasonable person must default to a presumption of innocence – in court or in life. read more

Religion Drives the Desire to Destroy Kavanaugh

I did not watch but did listen to some of the Thursday Senate hearing circus sideshow. Frankly, it’s worse than that – much worse. It could be the new season of FX Network’s series “American Horror Story.”

I say this not for just Brett Kavanaugh, but for all of us. What we see playing out on national television and internet streaming is an American Horror Story, as this tragic scenario can now be perpetrated upon any man the radical left disagrees with.

Kavanaugh is being called a predator – but I believe it’s high time for the gloves to come off and call these women, these accusers, what they really are. In fact they are the predators, not Judge Kavanaugh.

And if this stunt these false accusers are attempting to collectively pull off was not their idea, then they should be called something else, and deservedly so. That something else is prostitute, and the politicians, the media and leftist special-interest gangs are the pimps. read more

Like John McCain – Jeff Flake’s Hatred for Trump Clouds his Judgment

Hatred and want for revenge may feel good at the time, but they are bereft of any reason and logic. And despite conventional wisdom, they are poor motivators. Yet still, these too irrational emotions continue to be the catalyst for a lot of what goes on in Washington. And RINO Senator Jeff Flake just proved it once again. His hatred for the president has allowed another week’s destruction of a good man and unfortunate family.

No Matter the Outcome of the Kavanaugh Confirmation, the Dems Got What they Wanted

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Man am I getting tired of write and talking about Senate confirmation hearings, Brett Kavanaugh, and phony witnesses. But as I stated before, this saga is sucking the oxygen out of most everything else happening.

And – Yeah, I said it! In case you missed it, I’ll say it again! Phony witnesses.

At one point, just a few days ago, I thought that Ms. Ford might be telling the truth about being attacked at a party when she was a teenager. Not by Kavanaugh. I never believed that, but I thought she may have been traumatized by someone decades ago.

But now that it has turned entirely into a circus complete with a clown, played by smarmy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti, I frankly don’t believe any of them, and won’t, even if the Queen Mother recalls being attacked by the judge.

This is sadly what the dems wanted. From the start, they’ve desired to make this process so painful that Kavanaugh would never go the distance. Unfortunately it looks like they chose the wrong guy to attempt to Bork. read more

WND Exclusive – Evidence be Damned! Rule by Feminist Mobocracy

As surprising as it may be, feminist celebrities have come out in support of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey-Ford.

Obviously, I’m joking. Of course it’s no surprise that celebrities blindly endorse any accuser of sexual misconduct by a man against a girl or woman. I’d be shocked if they hadn’t.

Many in Hollywood will give their knee-jerk endorsement to every leftist cause under the sun, often, like this, with zero evidence to back up the assertion. But evidence is passé. Evidence has no place when virtue signaling. Symbolism is all that matters. Look at us, standing up for women’s rights. And we should be taken seriously because we’re actresses who get paid to play pretend. read more
