Here’s Why Brett Kavnauagh is Exceptionally Qualified for the Supreme Court

While I can sympathize with conservatives who believe Amy Coney Barrett would’ve been a better SCOTUS pick because it could’ve avoided the political circus we’ve been watching unfold in recent weeks, you have to remember that the Left would’ve come up with something else to attack her over. After all, just think about how absolutely ridiculous all the criticisms Kavanaugh faced were before Christine Blasey Ford came forward as an accuser.  Remember when the press was shaming him for buying baseball tickets?

The Left is going to bork any SCOTUS candidate Trump puts forward (Neil Gorsuch was an exception only because his nomination wasn’t in a midterm year), so picking a nominee to cater to the Left would be like an abused woman catering to her abuser. What’s the sense in that – especially when Republicans control the Senate anyway?

In reality, Brett Kavanaugh is objectively the most qualified SCOTUS nominee on President Donald Trump’s shortlist, so why even consider anyone else? To recap, here are four reasons why Kavanaugh should be confirmed immediately to the Supreme Court.

His Resume Surpasses Current SCOTUS Justices

Kavanaugh spent 12 years on the U.S. court of appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, graduated from Yale University, had a Supreme Court clerkship under Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, and held top posts under George W. Bush’s administration. He’s also taught law students at Yale, Harvard, and Georgetown.

His Resume Surpasses Other Picks on Trump’s Shortlist

Kavanaugh has written over 300 legal opinions and sent 41 of his law clerks to posts at the high court – more than any other competitor on Trump’s list of potential SCOTUS candidates. Ironically it’s with the exception of Merrick Garland that no one has sent more of their law clerks to work for justices of the Supreme Court than Kavanaugh has.

He has the American Bar Association’s Approval

Kavanaugh was awarded the American Bar Association’s highest rating, and while the ABA were among those calling for the FBI to investigate Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations, they did not rescind their support for him.

He’s a Solid Conservative Justice

If you like Neil Gorsuch, you’ll love Brett Kavanaugh, as he’s, even more, ideologically conservative. If confirmed, only one Justice on the Court would be more conservative, Clarence Thomas.

In conclusion; thanks to the Left, we’ve enjoyed the most chaotic SCOTUS confirmation process in recent history for the most qualified candidate in recent history.

Just wait until it’s time to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Something tells me when it comes to liberal hysteria, we ain’t seen nothing yet.

RECAP: The Biggest Anti-Kavanaugh Lies from the Kavanaugh Hearings

Democrats must be praying that Christine Blasey Ford is telling the truth – because they literally have nothing else on Brett Kavanaugh. It’s easy to forget the desperate criticisms Kavanaugh faced from the Left in the pre-Ford months. The Washington Post ran an “exposé” back in July that Kavanaugh once racked up credit card debt – and then proceeded to pay it off (the horror!). In August the Associated Press tried to shame Kavanaugh by reporting that he enjoyed basketball in college, while his friends spent their time on the debate team. And who could forget those who tried to claim his associate Zina Bash is a white supremacist because the manner in which she rested her hand?

That was truly the extent of anti-Kavanaugh criticism, and after sitting through his initial confirmation hearing and subsequent questioning about Ford’s allegations, it’s clear that’s still all they’ve got.

And on that note, let’s review the top anti-Kavanaugh lies that have arisen from both his testimonies.

Kamala Harris Deceptively Edits Abortion Answer

Unable to accurately represent the views of the Supreme Court candidate she opposes, future 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris decided to upload a clip to Twitter that appeared to show Kavanaugh opposed to birth control, in which he appeared to call them “abortion inducing drugs.” Hillary Clinton was among those who shared the tweet, which quickly went viral.

There was just one problem: Kavanaugh wasn’t stating his own opinion, he was quoting terminology a plaintiff used in a 2013 court case. Indeed, Kavanaugh made that clear, beginning his statement with “they said” in making reference to the plaintiff. The full quote is “They said filling out the form would make them complicit in the provision of the abortion-inducing drugs that they were, as a religious matter, objecting to.” Harris conveniently cut that part from the video before uploading it to her millions of followers so it would appear to be Kavanaugh’s personal opinion.

Kavanaugh did indeed choose his words wisely as Harris noted – which is why she had to twist them to create a lie.

Cory Booker Spartacus Lie

Prepping for his own inevitable presidential run, Cory Booker compared himself to a Thracian gladiator during the hearings in what he wanted to be a “mic drop” moment. “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment,” he said, threatening to release confidential documents he claimed would expose Kavanaugh as a supporter of racial profiling.

Just one problem: the documents were not confidential, they were released the night before by Bill Burck (though Booker’s stunt would’ve been cringe-inducing regardless).

Ironically, the documents showed that Kavanaugh opposed racial profiling, not supported it. What an alternative fact that was!

Did Kavanaugh Perjure Himself? NBC’s Shameless Reporting

NBC News is continuing to prove the media is the enemy of the American people that President Trump derides them as.

On October 2nd they ran a story claiming that texts from Kavanaugh prove he was trying to discredit accuser Deborah Ramierez before her accusations were made public when they were published in a New Yorker story.

From these texts, the left-wing publication Slate concluded that “Kavanaugh said, under oath during his testimony last week, that the first time he had heard of Ramirez’s allegations was in the New Yorker story. The text messages would indicate that that is not true and would get to the larger point that Kavanaugh has not told the truth in a number of instances during the confirmation process, and potentially perjured himself…”

Just one problem: NBC screwed up their timeline. Rather than make any note of a correction to their story, they stealthfully edited it without saying a word. Below is a side by side comparison, with the original text on the left, and the revisions on the right, which clarified that Kavanaugh’s texts came after the New Yorker article was published, not before.

And yet, the headline on their article remains “Text messages suggest Kavanaugh wanted to refute accuser’s claim before it became public.”

NBC truly is shameless.

The Calendar Corroboration Myth 

After mocking the fact that Brett Kavanaugh kept detailed calendars in his youth, liberals are now swarming on one theory that attempts to use them against him. Of the boys Ford remembers at the party she was allegedly assaulted at, in addition to Kavanaugh and Mark Judge, she remembers a boy named Patrick “PJ” Smyth. Why is that relevant? Because in Kavanaugh’s 1982 calendar, there’s an entry for July 1: “Go to Timmy’s for skis [beers] with [Mark] Judge, Tom, P.J., Bernie and Squi.” Since both Judge and Smyth are among the invitees, as are three others, could this be a reference to the party Ford was allegedly assaulted at?

That’s the theory of Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse…. and it’s nonsense.

For starters, Timmy’s house was a townhouse, not the kind of home that Ford describes in her account. Second, that townhouse is 11 miles away from the Columbia Country Club, while the house Ford was allegedly assaulted at was 8 miles away from the country club. Third, “Squi” (Chris Garrett) is a friend of Kavanaugh’s who Ford herself dated. Squi thus would’ve been named as one of the boys at the party she remembered, if this was indeed the same party.

It’s ironic that it was journalists on the left that created the term “fake news” to attack the right, since in their industry “fake news” tends to be the rule rather than the exception.

Hawaii Democrat Accidentally Reveals Their Real Anti-Kavanaugh Strategy

In the wake of the sexual abuse allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono made headlines earlier this week for comments about sexual harassment and abuse she directed at half the world’s population. “Guess who is perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country. And I just want to say to the men in this country: just shut up and step up, do the right thing for a change.” I’m not sure how we’re supposed so simultaneously step up and also shut up, but that’s neither here nor there.

Incoherence aside, it’s comments Hirono made afterward that revealed her true motives in delaying the Kavanaugh confirmation; retribution for Merrick Garland. “I think we’ve had those kinds of vacancies before, and we certainly had over a one-year vacancy with Merrick Garland,” Hirono said separately on MSNBC. “So the world does not come to an end because we don’t fill all of the nominees.”

Please note that I am not commenting on the truth of Christine Ford’s (Kavanaugh’s accuser) claims – I am merely arguing that they’re being exploited by Democrats who aren’t actually interested in the truth of them. After all, if Democrats truly were concerned about claims of abuse, they wouldn’t be ignoring the abusers in their own Party, such as DNC Chair Keith Ellison (who is ironically among those calling to delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation for doing less than he’s been accused of). Nor would Democrats have waited until the 11th hour to come forward with such allegations unless their motives were political.

To Hirono’s point, is delaying Kavanaugh no different then Republicans delaying Obama nominee Merrick Garland? Of course not – because Garland was nominated in an election year. Ironically, the precedent that SCOTUS nominees aren’t to be confirmed in election years was set by the then-second-in-command, Joe Biden. After Bill Clinton won the Democratic nomination to challenge George H.W. Bush in 1992, Biden said on the Senate floor that June; “Politics has played far too large a role in the Reagan-Bush nominations to date. One can only imagine that role becoming overarching if a choice were made this year, assuming that a justice was announced tomorrow that he or she was stepping down.”

Biden said if Bush were to nominate someone, “the Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling confirmation hearings on the nomination until after the political campaign season is over.”

Biden now calls the Biden Rule “ridiculous,” presumably because he only ever wanted it to work in Democrats’ favor.

Meanwhile, Ford’s lawyer said she’d be willing to testify before the Senate about her allegations – which has since been walked back on. Ford is now demanding an FBI investigation, which the Bureau already clarified was out of their jurisdiction before Ford’s demand. Republicans have only expressed interest in having Ford testify – which some crazies are twisting into a narrative that Republicans are trying to “rush” the confirmation process.

But in reality, this confirmation process is already taking longer than average. Over the past four decades, it’s taken 67 days on average between a SCOTUS nomination and confirmation vote. The longest delays have been for conservative-leaning justices, with the exception of Elena Kagan.

Kavanaugh was nominated on July 10th, meaning there’s been 71 days since his nomination (as of publication – September 19th), above the historic average. Kavanaugh’s confirmation will undoubtedly set the record for the longest delay from nomination to confirmation in recent history if Democrats get their way.

Given that Republicans are extending Ford an olive branch and giving her opportunities to plead her case, it can hardly be argued that Republicans are trying to expedite anything, but instead uncover the truth. But what can be proven is that Democrats are using Ford’s allegations to obstruct and ultimately delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation indefinitely – whether they’re true or not. For them, the truth of the allegations are only secondary.
