Breaking: Trump Nominates Judge Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court

President Trump has nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace retired Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.  This appointment will mark Trump’s second nomination, and will cement the Court’s conservative majority by a narrow 5-4 margin.

Kavanaugh is a devout Catholic and father of three living in Washington, D.C.  He is also a champion for religious liberty, and even the feisty Ann Coulter supports him.  For some readers, that may be cause for concern, but I trust Coulter’s instincts on this one—after all, she predicted Trump would be POTUS, right?

Expect Kavanaugh to face a thorough Borking from Senate Democrats, who will unload on him mercilessly.

  1. Really, who cares what the Dems inside the Senate do? They’re approval of ANYTHING is no longer needed. They can be effectively cast aside and their opinions and votes ignored.

    • Thanks for the comment, jonolan. Given the massive self-destruction of the Democratic Party—all they do is “resist” and espouse Venezuelan-style socialist policies—I suspect you’re right in this instance. There’s going to be a great deal of “sound and fury, signifying nothing.” That said, Republicans have to guarantee there are no defectors in the Senate, and may still require some Democratic votes to reach 51 (as happened with Gorsuch). If the confirmation drags through the midterms, that may work in Republicans’ favor; there are a number of Democratic Senators in States that went heavily for Trump in 2016 that are very vulnerable (and those same senators may vote to confirm Kavanaugh for exactly that reason).
