Trump Just Announced Who His Next Supreme Court Nominee Is, Dems In FULL PANIC

Published

on

As Leftist Progressives from sea to shining sea lose their collective minds and commence with an election-level meltdown over the announced retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, President Donald Trump begins the selection process of choosing his replacement.

According to Bloomberg, President Donald Trump has asked his advisors how they feel about nominating 47-year-old Senator Mike Lee (UT-R) to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court. President Trump believes Lee would easily make it through the confirmation hearings in the Senate.  However, the president has also expressed concerns about the Senate seat Lee’s appointment would leave vacant and keeping it in Republican hands.

President Trump states he has been assured that the seat will remain safely in Republican hands, yet the president complained he was assured the same about the Alabama Senate seat held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  That seat is now held by Democrat Doug Jones in a highly contentious special election that saw Republican candidate Roy Moore smeared by decades-old allegations of sexual impropriety just weeks before the election causing Moore to lose a significant lead over Jones.

Lee would be the left’s worst nightmare as Bloomberg notes, “Lee has publicly denounced the Supreme Court’s landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion rights ruling, which could complicate his confirmation. Many of the other potential nominees, most of whom are judges, haven’t taken as clear a position on reversing the precedent.”

Trending: In Historic 9-0 Decision, Supreme Court Totally Shredded Democrats – YUGE!!!!

Democratic leader Chuck Schumer (NY) urged the Senate to hold off on confirming Kennedy’s replacement until after November’s midterm elections. Speaking on the Senate floor, he said that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should follow the same precedent set by Republicans in 2016 when they refused to weigh in on Merrick Garland (who was not confirmed) for months.

Schumer said that the vacancy is “the most important Supreme Court vacancy for this country in at least a generation,” noting that women’s reproductive rights and other issues hanging in the balance.

Critics note that Lee declined to endorse President Trump in the highly contentious 2016 presidential election and said he voted for independent candidate and fellow Utahan Evan McMullin instead as “a protest vote.” Lee explained his vote for McMullin due to anger at the Republican National Convention when it appeared the RNC committee was attempting to break the RNC’s own rules and steamroll dissent.

Lee, whose knowledge of the Constitution is scholarly, said at the time, “I have never in all my life, certainly going on six years in the United States Senate, prior to that as a lifelong Republican, never seen anything like this.”

Yet as Bloomberg notes President Trump and Lee have mended fences over the past two years and Lee has supported virtually all of President Trump’s top priorities. Lee stated in an interview with Fox News on Thursday of a potential nomination – “I have a good relationship with the president. He and I don’t see eye to eye on every issue. He and I see eye to eye on most things when it comes to the Supreme Court of the United States. I’m someone who’s been watching the Supreme Court since I was 10 years old. I’m honored to even be considered for something like this.”

Several key GOP senators have already publically stated they would support a Lee nomination including – Jeff Flake, Ted Cruz, John Kennedy and fellow Utah Senator Orrin Hatch. Objections to the nomination would likely arise from GOP senators Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.  Both women are staunch supporters of abortion. Bloomberg reported, “Murkowski simply said ‘hmm’ when asked about a possible Lee nomination Wednesday.”

Ben Shapiro notes additional names also being considered by President Trump –

  • Brett Kavanaugh – Kavanaugh is a former clerk for Justice Kennedy. He was elevated to the federal bench in 2006, after a three-year delay. His nomination was delayed thanks to a Democratic upset over the fact that Kavanaugh worked for Kenneth Starr in the office of the Solicitor General, and had the temerity to say that the Clinton administration targeted Starr. Kavanaugh has been on the court for quite a while, and has a long record — he’s authored nearly 300 decisions. He recently dissented when the circuit decided that a 17-year-old illegal immigrant detainee had a right to an abortion (he explained that the decision was “based on a constitutional principle as novel as it is wrong”), and held in 2011 that the Washington, D.C. ban on semi-automatic rifles and its gun registration requirement were unconstitutional under Heller. He also held that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau structure was unconstitutional.
  • Amul Thapar – Thapar is relatively new to the appellate courts. He voted to uphold Ohio’s method of lethal injection and a Michigan government meeting’s opening with a Christian prayer. Thapar has ruled that monetary donations are a form of protected speech under the First Amendment. Because Thapar’s record is relatively thin, there’s not much to go on with regard to major hot-button issues like abortion and religious freedom. With that said, Professor Brian Fitzpatrick of Vanderbilt Law School describes Thapar as “very Scalia-like and Thomas-like.”
  • Amy Barrett – Barrett’s nomination to the 7th Circuit became a cause celebre when Democrats began suggesting that her Catholicism was a bar to her ability to be an objective judge. She believes that life begins at conception, and signed a letter from the Becket Fund criticizing Obamacare’s requirement that employers provide contraceptive coverage, calling it a “grave violation of religious freedom.” Barrett has written in great depth on Justice Scalia’s originalism; she’s evidenced support for textualism as well. She clerked for Scalia.
  • Thomas Hardiman – Leonard Leo, one of Trump’s chief advisors, has described Hardiman as “very much in the mold of Justice Scalia, well-schooled on the doctrines of originalism and textualism.” He has not spoken out himself about his judicial philosophy. He has stood against a New Jersey law that required a showing of “justifiable need” to allow carrying a handgun publicly. In another Second Amendment case, he specifically stated that the “threshold question in a Second Amendment challenge is one of scope,” adding that the inquiry “requires an inquiry into ‘text and history.’” He also ruled in favor of an illegal immigrant seeking asylum on the grounds that he was targeted by MS-13.
  • Raymond Kethledge – Kethledge, like Kavanaugh, is a former Kennedy clerk. In 2016, Kethledge slammed the IRS for failing to turn over materials necessary for determining whether they discriminated against conservative groups. Kethledge tends toward textualism, as he described in his original confirmation testimony: “I would make sure that the values that I would be enforcing if I were a judge are not just my values, that I am not striking something down simply because I don’t like it. That is a countermajoritarian aspect of our system of Government. I would start with the text. I would say that, sir.” He also said before the Federalist Society that “The court tries to find the best objective interpretation of the statute, based on the statutory text,” and said that the job of the court was to determine “what is the meaning that the citizens bound by the law would have ascribed to it at the time it was approved.” As far as abortion, Kethledge was Judiciary Committee counsel for Spencer Abraham when Abraham was pushing for a federal abortion ban.

Kavanaugh’s Wife Puts Reporters Camped Outside Their Home to Shame – Did It With BIG Smile

Published

* By

Since the seemingly “well-planned” release of the alleged sexual assault accusation of Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh, nobody has spoken a word about what his wife and daughters must be dealing with. She’s watched her spouse endure the highest level of scrutiny, after having worked most of his life, sacrificing, to achieve the top judicial position in the country.

It has to be emotionally trying on a level many may never understand to see that opportunity compromised by an assault claim against your husband that’s decades old and lacks substantial detail and recollection.

It’s not about Kavanaugh’s life dedicated to being a fair, honest, and balance judge in our country’s court system and the track record proving that he is. It’s not about his wife and children who have sacrificed time with him while he fills this exceptionally important roll in our country. It seems to be Democrats derailing a decision to put him in place at the highest court in the nation, who is a threat to their agenda, despite the fact that he’s fair and qualified for the Supreme Court position.

Brett Kavanaugh’s wife, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh, has remained silent under all of these allegations and pressure against her husband. She’s kept her poise and class and should be respected for doing so with all the attention on her family. Much of those perpetuating the negative reports on her husband have been camped outside of her family’s home since the moment the allegation came out.

Undoubtedly, this created some difficult conversations with the Kavanaugh’s two young daughters as to what was happening. Ashley, has likely been forced to bear much of the burden this apparent slander has had on their children as well on herself.

However, shouldering all that pressure with tons of eyes constantly outside her home, she finally stepped outside and put all the stalking reporters to shame. She probably wasn’t prepared for the response she got.

The Daily Caller reports:

When press and camera crews from a number of outlets gathered outside her door — as a sexual assault allegation left the Supreme Court nomination of her husband, Brett Kavanaugh, hanging in the balance — Ashley Estes Kavanaugh delivered cupcakes.

According to at least one reporter, CBS’ Kathryn Watson, Kavanaugh offered up cupcakes from Sprinkles, a cupcake bakery in Georgetown.

Watson’s tweet spurred several reactions. First, people asked, “why are you at his house?” and criticized the media for camping out at his house.

Second, the critics began to attack. A number referenced Christine Blasey Ford — who came forward to accuse Judge Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct when they were both in high school 35 years ago — claiming that Ford was being forced into hiding after receiving a number of threats.

And they contrasted those threats with Ashley Kavanaugh handing out cupcakes.

Others simply saw the move as classy, saying, “only a Southerner would think ‘Oh, you hate my family? Here, have a cupcake.’”

This, again, is proof of grace under fire, as we’ve seen from a number of notable conservative women in the past year. There’s nothing more commendable than fighting off hate with kindness, as we’ve seen in Ashley here today, who must be under tremendous pressure, but walked out into the “lion’s den” with a gift and a smile. That’s remarkable and respectable.

JUST IN: Kavanaugh Accuser Lawyer’s Sick Connection Uncovered – It All Makes Sense Now!

Published

* By

The plot has just thickened in the sudden alleged sexual assault scandal that emerged “right in time” at the 11th hour before Judge Brett Kavanaugh could be sworn in as the next U.S. Supreme Court Judge.

Many have questioned the timing and intentions of Kavanaugh’s accuser who is just now brining up an alleged attack from when she was in high school with the now justice. The latest scandalous detail to come out could potentially be the biggest as it should destroy all credibility of accuser Christine Blasey Ford and the lawyer who is “conveniently” representing her.

Early on into the insane claim, Senator Graham asked a very important question that’s been largely overlooked, until today. Graham spoke for many speculative Americans after the strange allegations surfaced vocalizing the following huge concern:

Senator Graham: Here is what I want your audience to know. If Miss Ford really did not want to come forward, never intended to come forward, never planned to come forward, why did she pay for a polygraph in August and why did she hire a lawyer in August if she never intended to do what she’s doing?… And who’s paid for it?

Timing is everything and to some people, money is very motivational.

As the saying goes, “where there is smoke, there’s fire.” Now it’s time to put the fire out on this teenage melodrama that seems to have metastasized into a smear campaign designed to ruin a man’s life decades after the fact when he so happens to be a major threat to the left.

Debra Katz is representing Ford on this adventure, that’s apparently two to three decades in the making. Perhaps it wasn’t just Katz’s professional abilities that made her the perfect attorney for this high profile situation.U Unfortunately, her position as vice chair of the Project on Government Oversight (POGO), is bringing about a lot of questions that need to be answered before Monday.

Referring back to Senator Graham’s question about who is potentially paying for this alleged smear campaign, it seems that he may have just found his answer. POGO has been directly funded by none other than George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, according to Forbes. This certainly makes an already bad situation worse, especially after what a money trail showed.

Katz puts her money where her morals are as she’s donated at least $24,000 to far left liberal causes. She also had an especially sickening thing to say about President Trump and his supporters:

“These people are all miscreants. The term ‘basket of deplorables’ is far too generous a description for these people who are now Senior Trump advisors.”

Adding to this list of concerning facts is that Katz is the go-to for whistleblowers, which probably is another reason as to why Ford just so happened to find her.

Reliable news outlet 100% Fed Up asks a really good question: “How was it that she was hired months ago to represent Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser? Remember that Senator Feinstein claimed that the anonymous person wanted to stay anonymous. If that’s the case, why did this woman secure a lawyer specializing in whistleblower cases months ago?

POGO provides an interesting bio on Katz:

Debra Katz is a partner with Katz, Marshall & Banks, LLC, a civil rights law firm based in Washington, D.C. The firm specializes in the representation of whistleblowers. Ms. Katz has represented nuclear, financial services, defense contractor and pharmaceutical whistleblowers for more than 30 years. Ms. Katz received her B.A. degree from Union College in Schenectady, New York and her law degree from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, WI.

But the situation gets even worse from there…

One of Senator Feinstein’s former aides, Paige Herwig, is actively involved with an organization currently fighting to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Herwig seems comfortable with corruption since she apparently has a long resume of involvement with the poster people for it – Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch, Feinstein, and Hillary Clinton.

The Free Beacon reported on Paige’s deep involvement in the now-infamous “tarmac meeting” that means everything:

One of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s top lawyers at the Justice Department helped edit Obama administration press statements about the infamous meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton on a tarmac last summer.

The same attorney, Paige Herwig, is now the deputy general counsel for Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. That panel is now investigating whether Lynch played any role in trying to influence the scope or intensity of the FBI’s investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

Prior to her legal work with Lynch at Justice, Herwig was a special assistant and associate counsel to President Obama.

100% Fed Up expounds more on why Herwig’s involvement in the Ford case is especially concerning:

Flash forward and Herwig is now involved in a group called Demand Justice that’s connected to Obama, Hillary and other Obama administration higher ups:

Hillary just announced she’s supporting Demand Justice:

Demand Justice is owned by Kelly Duda who launched a multimillion-dollar campaign run by former top Feinstein aide Paige Herwig to stop the Kavanaugh nomination.

Sarah Bentley tweeted out more information on the organization and on Herwig:

This is probably just the tip of the iceberg with the involvement from the left in trying to stop the Kavanaugh confirmation. These people will stop at nothing to get what they want.

Looks like Ford has herself quite the “dream team” for her cause and theirs. If she was paid to be their poster girl for trying to prevent Kavanaugh’s confirmation, we should all at least get to know how much it took for her to sell her soul.
