    It didn't matter who he picked for his nomination, the Alt-Left didn't care about showing their skirts, the world will end today as far as they are concerned. Won't they be surprised when the sky doesn't fall today...............
    Even Pelosi got into the whining by announcing she would avenge Obama.........Just wtf does that mean?

    Yep the only critique I have about him is his ties to the Neo Cons. Oh and being another Yale/Harvard preppie. Its time to quit picking Judges out of the Ivy League and from the East Coast Lightweights.

    Kavanaugh: 'Extremely Conservative' or Too 'Establishment?'.....





    His nomination is dividing conservatives. First, his supporters. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton heralds Kavanaugh as "extraordinarily conservative." Others champion him as a fighter for religious liberty.


    He does have his share of conservative critics, however, thanks to a certain ruling on Obamacare.


    In a 2011 ObamaCare case where Kavanaugh dissented against the ruling but acknowledged that the Affordable Care Act’s “individual mandate provision” could fit “comfortably within Congress’ Taxing Clause power.”
    Kavanaugh's detractors say that language helped provide the roadmap for the Supreme Court to uphold the mandate a year later. (Fox News)


    Other conservatives balk at his close relationship with the Bush family, which gives him "establishment" status.


    Justin Walker, who clerked for both Kennedy and Kavanaugh, said the "establishment" attack line is unfair. Kavanaugh is "the opposite of the $#@!tail sipping crowd." …..snip~

    I heard that some of the protestors had signs with a blank space for the name of then nominee. When he was announced the protestors took out Sharpies and filled in the blank.

    Could have happened, I did not see it this time but that is what happened last time.

    Judge Kavanaugh’s Record on Second Amendment/Gun Rights


    In follow-on litigation to the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling on the Second Amendment in D.C. v. Heller, a D.C. Circuit panel majority, consisting of two Republican appointees, upheld the District of Columbia’s ban on possession of most semi-automatic rifles and its registration requirement for all guns in D.C. Judge Kavanaugh dissented (in Heller v. D.C. (2011)). An excerpt from his dissent:


    https://www.nationalreview.com/bench...nt-gun-rights/



    Sen. Chris Murphy: Brett Kavanaugh Is a 'Second Amendment ...

    Breitbart News
    13 hours ago Brett Kavanaugh is a true Second Amendment radical. He believes assault weapon bans are unconstitutional, a position way out of the judicial mainstream, far to the right of even late Justice Scalia.
