Welcome, Justice Kavanaugh

Finally…………..

The Republicans stood against a raging, deceitful, Democrat onslaught.

Though assaulted from all side by vicious, unproven lies, Justice Kavanaugh maintained his innocence.

And, the Innocent until Proven Guilty, Constitutional right for ALL Americans, including men, was upheld.

Congratulation to President Trump,  Justice Kavanaugh, Senator Grassley, Senator McConnell,  Senator Collins, Senator Graham………….and all the Judiciary Committee who refused to cave when a devious hit team, supported by the Democrats,  took advantage of a troubled and confused woman, Dr. Ford……..all with the express purpose of destroying an honest and good man.  And, their attacks were fomented only because that man had a different view of the Constitution, and the role of the Judiciary, than they did.

So, welcome Justice Kavanaugh.  You, and your approach to the Constitution and the role of the Judiciary will be a welcome addition to our world.

 

 

 


Supreme Court Ruling?

Finally, Supreme Court Justice Roberts has replied to President Obama’s boorish behaviour at the State of the Union speech.

Roberts: Scene at State of Union `very troubling’

By JAY REEVES (AP) – 14 hours ago

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts said Tuesday the scene at President Obama’s State of the Union address was “very troubling” and the annual speech has “degenerated to a political pep rally.”

Obama chided the court, with the justices seated before him in their black robes, for its decision on a campaign finance case.

Responding to a University of Alabama law student’s question, Roberts said anyone was free to criticize the court, and some have an obligation to do so because of their positions.

So I have no problems with that,” he said. “On the other hand, there is the issue of the setting, the circumstances and the decorum.

“The image of having the members of one branch of government standing up, literally surrounding the Supreme Court, cheering and hollering while the court — according the requirements of protocol — has to sit there expressionless, I think is very troubling.”

Breaking from tradition, Obama criticized the court’s decision that allows corporations and unions to freely spend money to run political ads for or against specific candidates.


Judging the Judges……….

http://foxforum.blogs.foxnews.com/

Tommy DeSeno is quoted on the Drudge as saying:  “Since she is replacing a liberal –  Justice David Souter — the appointment will be of no consequence to America.”  He is speaking, of course, about the newest nominee for the Supreme Court.  And, he obviously doesn’t care whether she is qualified or not.  He just wants her confirmed!

His statement is pure political speech.  There are few jobs more important than those of the judges of the Supreme Court and each and every one of them should be scrutinized right down to their toe nails, just like Clarence Thomas was.  Enough of this political correctness foolishness.  Make sure the nominee is going to make decisions based on the constitution, not on ethnicity, gender, or political philosophy.

Unfortunately, Soltemayor has said that courts DO create policy.  That is contrary to the Constitution.

She HAS said that judicial decisions might be different if they come from a man or woman, a latino or an old white guy.  That, too, is directly opposed to the theory of blind justice that supposedly rules our country, and is a fundamental tenet of our Constitution.

She does not seem to have the judicial temperament that the Constitution requires.  If these comments are truly her philosophy — and there is no reason to doubt it — then, she should NOT BE CONFIRMED.

And, whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, Independent, I hope that you will not be swayed by flippant arguments such as Tommy DeSeno proposes.  EVERY judge on the Supreme Court is important.  And, EVERY judge should be weighed and balanced as to their judicial temperament.  This is a lifetime appointment and we can’t afford to make a mistake just because some want to have “their” nominee win.  Choosing a Justice is not a game.  It is a matter of Supreme urgency.
