    Good news Collins will Vet Kavanuagh.



    Susan Collins praises Brett Kavanaugh for 'impressive credentials,' promises to vet.....


    “Judge Kavanaugh has impressive credentials and extensive experience, having served more than a decade on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals,” Collins said in a statement. “I will conduct a careful, thorough vetting of the president’s nominee to the Supreme Court, as I have done with the five previous Supreme Court Justices whom I have considered.” …..snip~

    There goes the Demos only hope. Now they have no chance to hold it up. As Collins goes so to Murkowski.

    For the record. I believe the Obamacare ruling was not only correct, but then was finally decided by We the People.

    The Obama Administration argued that the mandate in Obamacare that was gone over in court...was a tax. That is correct, while Obama was telling us all on tv that it wouldn't add a dime to the national debt, the mandate was being argued as a tax in court. John Roberts wrote for the majority and strongly emphasized the upcoming 2012 Presidential election, that the decision should be made by our Constituents. The correct call. And what happened at the end of 2017.....our GOP Legislature ended the mandate. Ended it where it should have been decided and ended and it was. In our Legislature. Where the people's Representatives decide what is a tax, what is mandated.

    Yeah. I don't know what Pennsylvania Avenue brains ( Presidential Advisors ) were thinking when Kavanaugh got picked, but I like the bio below.



    Judge Amy Barrett


    1. Notre Dame Law School - Summa Cum Laude

    2. Economics and Law fellow at George Washington University

    3. She teaches courts, and constitutional law

    4. She is a staunch conservative.

    Trump has once again out-thought the Demos. Barrett and Kethledge the Demos would go full tilt with the attacks. Along with getting the media to jump in. Which then would cause Collins and Murkowski to waiver and flip flop. The left would be able to go full tilt on them over Roe vs Wade.


    Kavanaugh has written on over 300 cases. Moreover, the Demos voted for Kavanaugh to put him on the DC Appellate Court. As did Collins and Murkowski.


    Kavanaugh is a Scholar. As well as a History Major. He also has ruled on cases dealing with the separation of Powers. Going by the Constitutional as an originalist. As Larry Elder says....there is no dirt on Kavanaugh. Other than being associated to Bush and being on Ken Starr's Team. So pretty much an MC Hammer.....You Can't Touch This.


    Besides clerking for Kennedy. He has hired on more women as clerks. Is respected by all Judges left and Right and Considered to be one of the most intelligent Justices we have out there. Even Kagan had him come and speak at Yale, despite being a Conservative.


    With BO the peeps Special Package. His stance was that it wasn't the courts place to make any decision. That it was a policy matter.


    That being said.....I would have preferred Trump to go with Barrett. The Demos would have had a better chance at derailing her confirmation. With Kavanaugh.....they can $#@! a lil. But they can't get around the fact that they confirmed him in as an Appellate Judge for the Top Appellate Court in the Country. The DC Circuit.


    They will give their base a showing by putting up a fight. But really they have no heart for it. Axios, Mike Allen, Politicos Jake Sherman, and other top Leftist Law Pundits are all saying. Kavanaugh gets confirmed.

    Is that the measure?

    We should reject Kavanaugh. We should insist that President Trump nominate a Constitutional Conservative who will reliably support and defend the Constitution as written and understood by the framers.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I think he's preferable to anyone Hillary Clinton would have appointed.
    We do not measure a potential Justice against what the loser might have done. We measure the potential justice based on past performance. Kavanaugh appears to be a risky choice. We can do better. We should insist that President Trump withdraw Kavanaugh and pick a Constitutional Conservative instead.

    I get that.
    Kavanaugh worked very hard to discover the means to turn the ObamaCare penalty into a tax. That is enough of a red flag that Kavanaugh must be rejected.

    This is a reason to reject him. President Trump can do better. We deserve better.
