Default Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court

from my inbox Los Angeles Times

Quote:
Judge Brett Kavanaugh has won Senate approval to become the fifth solid conservative on the U.S. Supreme Court, ending a bruising confirmation battle over decades-old allegations of sexual assault and misconduct.
Quote:
Kavanaugh’s ascent marks another victory for President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who have transformed federal courts by nominating and confirming an unprecedented number of conservative judges.
Told ya

I don't understand. How could Kav become a Supreme Court justice when he raped a woman, participated in gang rapes, and was a member of a gang-rape cartel?

Oh, ya mean it's because he never did any of that while libs went with the, "guilty until proven innocent" path relying on a lying whore who was the high school trampoline.

Maybe next time libs can find a more believable liar with actual evidence before accusing an innocent man of rape in the name of politics.

Your caustic sarcasm is noted.

I wish this meant it was over but I'm sure folks like yourself will continue to cat call like hyenas and "resist." The fact is, our nation, our Republic, came incredibly close to dissolution this day. The presumption of innocence upon which our equal individual justice is founded has been deeply corroded by such caustic disregard.

Thanks

Nice to see that unprovable sketchy allegations didn't stop someone from being confirmed to the supreme court. Democrats tried the same thing with Clarence Thomas. So they'll probably wait twenty or twenty five years before trying the same trick again.

Nah, next nominee they'll come up with something. Since the leftists are now in charge of the DNC they won't be able to help themselves.

Ginsburg is 85. I doubt she will hang around another 6 years. Especially if it appears that the Democrats will not fare well in 2024.

oh geez you bought the hype and a big bag of popcorn to boot.

number one your judge of character is pretty lame. it goes like this: because you and I disagree on some political issues plus I view trump as an awful person, you decide I am jamming the airwaves and social media condemning kavenaugh.
the facts are I said from the beginning if you can ADD (assuming you know the lay of the Congress on this type of vote), you understand he will be confirmed.
the rest of this sht was for show and to drum up the two bases of support.
Trump should never have chosen this guy -I base that mostly on Kavenaugh's youth; some wisdom only comes with age -but Kavenaugh will be a decent judge-is a decent judge. What dems did was despicable.
reminds me of a friend who was date raped in her high school years, impregnated and her parents were so money hungry cause the guy was from a wealthy family; the judge sent the boy to the army and ordered no child support. Did the guy do it? Yes. She was bruised and shattered and it affected her entire life.
The waiting to drop that confidential letter to muck up the midterms was horrible for everyone involved.
And it highlighted an issue dear among women and prolly set us back decades. But Republicans are not off the hook either as they seem to have made a partisan crybaby out of kavenaugh.
for votes.
