In case you haven’t been paying attention, the Republicans are going to remain in control of both the House and the Senate in a couple of weeks. Since their flawless victory over the Democrats in the fight to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the Republican base is more energized now than at any point since November 2016.
Senator Lindsey Graham seems to have a newfound “Trumpian” swagger of late, all starting with his fiery speech during Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation – and culminating in several recent clips of the South Carolina Senator giving Democrats what for.
For anyone buying into the mainstream media’s recent defense of Senator Richard Blumenthal, in the wake of President Trump’s mockery of the senator, for lying about his service during the Vietnam era, you’re in luck.
What follows is an excerpt of the remarks made by the President of the United States, Donald Trump, at the ceremonial swearing-in of Brett Kavanaugh, by retired Supreme Court Justice, Anthony Kennedy. Whatever one’s opinions are on the country’s newest Supreme Court Justice and the tactics employed by the democrats to scuttle his confirmation, anyone with an ounce of reason and compassion could not ignore the impact the last several weeks have had on Justice Kavanaugh’s two young daughters, Margaret 13 and Liza 10.
The whole world is witnessing the “law of unintended consequences” in the cynical workings of the Democrat side of the U.S. Congress, particularly in the Senate. Never in U.S. history have the American people received such a lesson on how the Supreme Court justice nomination process can be mangled and manipulated in order to sabotage a candidacy.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the 114th Supreme Court justice late Saturday, just hours after the Senate voted to confirm him to the nation’s highest court after a rancorous confirmation battle. Kavanaugh was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts in a private ceremony, accompanied by his wife and children. The ceremonial swearing in is expected to happen on Monday evening at the White House. It means that now-Justice Kavanaugh will begin hearing cases before the court on Tuesday.
The Real Trouble with Kavanaugh
And so we have arrived. The Brett Kavanaugh affair has demonstrated one accusation alone – no matter how unsubstantiated and uncorroborated – is enough to ruin a man’s reputation, nullify his accomplishments and erase his opportunities … for life.
