Brett Kavanaugh’s Nomination to Supreme Court Confirmed in a 50-48 Senate Vote

Justice Brett Kavanaugh Confirmed Senate 50-48

courtesy AP

Congratulations Justice Kavanaugh.

I had to follow a precedent. A precedent of the Supreme Court. I don’t get to pick and choose which Supreme Court precedents I get to follow. I follow them all.

And so in the Second Amendment context, the Supreme Court, in the Heller decision written by Justice Scalia, held that there was an individual right to keep and bear arms.

    Now RBG can just go back to sleep!
    Kagan all worked up about no swing vote on SCOTUS!
    Why doesn’t SHE become the “swing” vote?

          Basically, that without Kennedy, the court will no longer have a moderating, centrist vote.

      Kavanaugh is a disaster for the 4th amendment, but libtard butthurt is always fun.

      1. avatar Andrew Lias says:

        After this hearing I don’t know if I would totally count on him for that any more. If anything I could see this swinging him even further right than he would have been; Getting ran through the crucible changes a person, I could see him being disillusioned at the power government has now. Only time will tell though.

        1. avatar Nanashi says:

          I don’t see him getting wined and dined like Kennedy, but I hardly expect this to make him take precedent’s dick out of his mouth.

    3. avatar Geoff "Mess with the Bull, get the 'Good and Hard' Horns" PR says:

      “The reactions are the best part of this whole thing.”

      Take a look at this bombshell letter that Chuck Grassley just dropped on Diane Feinstien’s head.

      This ‘Christine Ford’ business is just getting started. The shit is gonna get REAL! :

      “Grassley is telling this group of feckless jackasses he has has them dead-to-rights. He has their texts/IM’s and knows this was all coordinated through Feinstein’s office. That’s why DiFi looked like she was crying while Chuck Schumer handled the press.”

      This is political *DYNAMITE* that is about to blow.

        Zerohedge is a Russian propaganda outfit. Maybe always has been, but certainly has been for a few years

        1. avatar CC says:

          Doesn’t change the points made in the article. And while we should be warry about Russophilic outlets, NYTimes and CNN are Sinophilic, repeatedly attacking Trump policies attempting to stop some of the more egregious nasty trade policies of China. NYT and CNN receive funding from China in the way of advertising.

          All the major gun control groups also get funding from overseas and foreigners

          Ultimately the question is what in that Zero hedge article do you disagree with and why?

        2. avatar Kenneth says:

          I predict that LL will have zero interest in a substantial conversation. Reasons, logic, sanity, etc., none of these are parts of the 25 rules of disinformation. He is using number 5 here: “5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the primary attack the messenger ploy…” https://vigilantcitizen.com/latestnews/the-25-rules-of-disinformation/
          This is what the loony toons think a conversation is. They bad mouth, name call, delay, and trash, while we talk and they ignore our babble(logic is complete babble to a tard) and continue to swing bike locks and make signs out of baseball bats.
          I also predict it won’t be too much longer before their bats and chains meet Mr 9mm and Mr .357. I wonder who will win THAT encounter?

      1. avatar rosignol says:

        Nah, that’s Gorsuch on the right and Alito on the left.

        Kennedy is sitting to the left of Roberts, that would be a picture of the previous justices.

      This will be forgotten by 2022 and Palin will have faded from the scene. She would have been better off if she declined the VP nomination.

    2. avatar Geoff "Mess with the Bull, get the 'Good and Hard' Horns" PR says:

      “I see Sarah Palin is mulling over running against Murkowski”

      I’d love to see that!

      *One* Democrat Senator showed true class – One Republican Senator was walking his daughter down the isle today, so the female Democrat Senator withdrew her ‘Nay’ vote, not changing the outcome. (That was pre-ordained, anyways.)

      That was a classy move on her part, and I tip my hat to her. (And try to look up her skirt, but that’s just me… *snicker* 😉 )

      But that’s it – Just one Democrat with actual class (one more than usual)…

      1. avatar tdiinva says:

        Murkowski is a Republican. She is in fact more Conservative than Susan Collins.

        1. avatar TexTed says:

          Yeah, don’t extend credit to the Dems that they don’t earn. Murkowski is a R, she was committed to voting No, and she changed her vote to “present” so it wouldn’t impact the fact that Daines couldn’t be there to vote Yes.

        2. avatar Geoff "Mess with the Bull, get the Horns" PR says:

          Drat. Never mind…

        3. avatar LarryinTX says:

          Just means that, as expected, *zero* Democrats showed any class.

      2. avatar Chip Bennett says:

        Call me cynical, but Murkowski using pairing merely gives her cover to be able to claim that she didn’t vote “NO”, when all is said and done.

        I hope Murkowski loses all of her cushy committee positions in the next Congress, and I hope she loses to Sarah Palin in 2022.

        1. avatar DJ says:

          Completely agree.

    3. avatar TexTed says:

      Palin’s ridiculous. She is a bad joke.

      Murkowski, as irritating as she is, voted to represent her state’s interests, her constituents (especially Native Americans) had serious problems with Kavanaugh.

      Same with Joe Manchin – he voted against his party’s wishes and voted for his constituents’ wishes.

      Wish they would all remember that their loyalty is not to their party, it’s to their voters.

      And I put the odds of Manchin switching parties soon at 75%. If the R’s somehow summon a Red Wave in November, I believe those odds go to 100%.

      1. avatar tdiinva says:

        Manchin is a worm. He only voted yes because he didn’t have the deciding vote. If he was the 50th vote he would have voted present or no.

        I thing Murkowski was intimidated.

        1. avatar Model 31 says:

          Yep

        2. avatar Frank says:

          Manchin was never going to vote no, whether there had been 40 voted lined up for Kavanaugh or 60.

      2. avatar Chip Bennett says:

        The Senate will very likely have a larger Republican majority in 2019.

        Heitkamp (ND) more or less already conceded her seat (and is down 10 points in the polls). McCaskill (MO) is going to lose. Donnelly (IN) is going to lose. All three voted against their States’ wishes, in deeply Trump-red states.

        Cruz (TX) will hold his seat. Tester (NV) is in a scrap, and may lose his seat (but who knows, because there are no recent polls). In the open seats (both currently R-held), Blackburn (TN) will hold, but Sinema (AZ) may flip McCain’s seat. If there is any kind of Red wave, we could see flips with Nelson (FL) and Rosendale (MT).

        At worst, Republicans will hold 52 seats, and could hold as many as 54-56.

        At this point, though, who knows. The polling has been incredibly sparse (which leads my cynical side to believe that Republicans are doing stronger than the media want people to know).

        1. avatar Andrew Lias says:

          Lets see if 54-56 happens. It would certainly help with this sort of thing, I think the judicial appointments are probably the most important thing Trump is doing and is a long term hedge against future Obamaesque presidents or people who don’t value rights.

        2. avatar Geoff "Mess with the Bull, get the Horns" PR says:

          “The polling has been incredibly sparse…”

          Yeah, I’ve noticed that.

          What I haven’t gotten an answer on is, have they changed their polling models from the bad ones they had in 2016?

          Or are the likely Trump voters for all practical purposes, off-the-grid and un-pollable to the poll people? I guess we’ll find out in a month…

        3. avatar Gary Kimberlin says:

          Tester is Montana. And though I didn’t vote for him I will apologize for my entire state for burdening our country with this spineless worm.

        “Palin’s ridiculous. She is a bad joke.”

        Palin’s Alaskan popularity as Governor was OVER 80 percent.

        OVER 80 PERCENT is *no* joke…

      4. avatar Kyle in Upstate NY says:

        Palin is plenty solid (gun rights, national security, economy, etc…). If the media went after Democrats like Gillibrand, Feinstein, Harris, etc…the way they did Palin, they all would look like a bad joke.

      5. avatar Ansel Hazen says:

        But Palin wouldn’t go RINO on us.

      6. avatar Mister Fleas says:

        “Palin’s ridiculous. She is a bad joke.”

        Mrs. Palin did a great job as governor of Alaska. She only resigned become of 15 bogus ethics complaints, the last one by a Republican, and had to spend $500,000 defending herself. She was cleared of all wrong doing. Then she almost dragged McCain’s sorry @$$ across the victory line in spite of McCain sabotaging his own campaign.

        She was right – The next SCOTUS gun control ruling could be definitive. For a while.

        Well, until a future Progressive SCOTUS overturns ‘Heller’, et. all like ‘Dred Scott’ was reversed. (I agree Dred Scott should have been reversed. But the Leftists will use that ‘moral outrage’ to overturn ‘Heller’. Count on it.)

        When semi-autos with detachable hi-cap magazines get ruled expressly constitutional in the future with the current 5-4 balance, the Leftists will use that as battle cry as to why they must be elected, to undo the ‘damage’ they will claim has been done. The ‘Rivers of Blood’, the dead kids, etc.

        Count on it…

        1. avatar Chip Bennett says:

          The left-wing talking point du jour is that the Dems will take back the White House, House, and Senate in 2020, and then amend 28 USC 1 to add an additional two associate justices, which the newly elected Democrat president will fill with left-wing justices – basically, implementing the court-packing plan first conceived by the socialist bastard, FDR.

          Good to see ya again, Chip.

          I hope they make good on that threat.

          In the meantime, Dr. Christine Ford has some explaining to do about why she LIED under oath to the Senate Judicial Committee. That carries criminal penalties, does it not?

          Take a look at this letter :

          https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-10-06/kavanaugh-vs-feinstein-flawless-victory

          Wouldn’t that be *precious* if she was charged with a felony?

          Well, the Democrats aren’t the only ones who could play the court-packing game. I look forward to the day when the Supreme Court has more members than the Senate, each one more spineless than the next.

          Court cases very rarely get over turned. People need to realize that abortion is not going away, gay marriage is not going away, and Heller is not going away.

          Yes, some laws might change that will allow the states to regulate all those differently but by and large, all these huge landmark cases will never be in full reversed.

        Thomas Sowell evicerates the anti-vaccination position, noting that that the original study was flawed, the best statistics don’t show a correlation between measles vaccination and autism, and when using the ORIGINAL definition of autism, the rates of autism have stayed pretty constant.

        https://www.nationalreview.com/2015/02/debunking-anti-vaccine-pseudoscience-thomas-sowell/

        most autistic children are not diagnosed until about 3, although they may show some early signs startung at about 18 months,

        https://www.nichd.nih.gov/health/topics/autism/conditioninfo/symptoms-appear

        which is why “tens of thousands of mothers” see their child “descend” into autism about a year after some vaccinations, https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/imz/child-adolescent.html

        there, now go start your OWN website and stop spamming us with your irrelevent, irrational anti-vax bullshat.

        1. avatar Pg2 says:

          I responded below to this post, but in case you missed it, these 3 links do not support any of your statements. Did you even read them? Looks like you want to look informed and bluff with links that contain keywords but don’t contain the data that support your opinion. Bottom line, there are huge holes in the vaccine safety science, so much so that it’s safe to say valid vaccine safety science doesn’t exist. The vaccine industry is shielded from liability by the Federal government for the damages it products can and do cause, does this instill confidence in you they are producing safe products?

      4. avatar Aaron says:

        pg2, you said, “Not spamming, same people trying to disarm you and I will be calling for mandatory vaccines. Wake the F up.”

        wtf are you talking about? there are plenty if anti-vaxxine, anti-gun libtards.

        i don’t see any thing that would indicate that the “same people” who want to take away guns are in favor of mandatory vaccines, there is a lot of crossover between those two topics. it’s IRRELEVANT to guns.

        1. avatar Kenneth says:

          Its not quite irrelevant that the same billionaires that fund antifa, MDA, the hollyweird sect of retards, and etc., are also the same ones that own the controlling interests in all of big Pharma. So they want both your guns, AND your life. Mostly because what they really want is CONTROL OF YOU! They can get that by you working for them, OR they just use force after disarming you, OR they feed you enough Sodium Fluoride(and vaccines) to make you into another of their mindless puppets.
          Any which way you turn, they’ve “gotcha”! Unless you can manage to find enough balls to quit working for them, OFC. I see only two chances of that: “Slim”, and “None”.

        2. avatar pg2 says:

          AAron, not going to ad hominem you here, but there’s much wrong with post. You’re repeating lies, or just lying. The “original” study you mention has no data and makes no correlation about the MMR and autism. This is a false statement often repeated by people who really don’t any better. And by by the way, only ONE vaccine out of dozens given to children has been looked at for an association with autism. Not to mention there was alleged CDC fraud in the epidemiological studies of this ONE vaccine. The latest autism numbers are 1 in 36. And the definitions of autism have not changed, and in no way does the data support a near 3% of the population being autistic prior to the first case being diagnosed. It’s an intentional ploy to normalize the epidemic of brain damaged children. And if you don;t think the leftist-statistic attacks on our individual freedoms, gun rights being only one of those, is important, then sad for you.

      5. avatar Aaron says:

        pg2, this really isn’t a complex issue like climate change, in which the so-called scientific consensus is misleading. in the case of vaccines, the statistics are relatively straightforward and the benefits clearly outweigh the risks. anti-vaxxers are simply wrong and Andrew Wakefield is a fraud. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3136032/

        we know for a fact that vaccines are less risky than the diseases they prevent. we also know that vaccines generate less than 5% of the revenue generated by “big pharma” and they are low profit margin medicines. so it’s kind of ridiculous to say that vaccines are beijg pushed by “big pharma” to make money. the needless, high-profit things that big pharma is always pushing are the patent-protected crap they advertise on TV that does the same thing that multiple older medicines do – THAT’S where they are scamming the public.

        feel free to post actual evidence of the lies you accuse me of.

        1. avatar Pg2 says:

          Aaron, you’re attempting to use a straw man which doesn’t even exist. Wakefield’s case study had no autism data, and did not correlate autism wi5 MMR. the fact you keep trying to use it as a straw man tells me you are either repeating lies or flat out lying. If you make the claim the benefits of vaccines outweigh the risks, it’s your duty to support it, not mine to disprove it. And Science and consensus are 2very different things. The best scientists are those that broke from consensus and made ground braking discoveries. By the way, I’d love to see the citations for the Swedish, danish studies that involved large groups of subjects that allegedly compared vaccinated people to non vaccinated people. Here’s a fact Aaron, nearly all of our vacccine safety studies are epidemiological studies, none comparing vaccinated groups against non vaccinated very few trials we actually do have still compare vaccinated groups against each other, or vaccinated groups against groups given “placebos”that contain active vaccine ingredients. That’s tobacco science Aaron. Feel free to prove that statement wrong. I’ll wait.

        2. avatar pg2 says:

          “we know for a fact that vaccines are less risky than the diseases they prevent. we also know that vaccines……are low profit margin medicines”

          Both statements are your opinion and have no basis in fact. So you’re either repeating lies, or just lying. You do know there are over 200 vaccines in the pipeline…and with industry shielded from product liability by the government….how safe do you expect these products to be? Refrain from the attempted Wakefield straw-man, it makes you look like a troll.

    I expect a consolidation of our Second Amendment rights but I caution against over optimism. I foresee an overturning of any ban on specific classes of weapons based on Miller and Heller, not by direct appeal to the Second Amendment itself. I also think may issue will go. The States will be required to have some form of carry outside the home which could be satisfied by either open or concealed carry. Under such a ruling, the anti-gun States would be smart if they legalized open carry because few people would do it. I don’t think they are that smart. Beyond these two potential rulings I would not get my hopes up

          Democrats demanded an FBI investigation, they got one, and it supported Kavanaugh and this upsets you?

I don’t mind political protest, but these particular tactics needed to be roundly and dramatically rejected. To me that is the great victory o f the day.

She went on for a couple of minutes about believing women and rape and male patriarchy, and evil Republicans. Then she asked me what I thought. I simply replied that I didn’t agree with anything she had said and … that I had figured her out before I had even sat down. She said oh yeah… what gave it away? I told her that the green and blue hair was a dead give away. She called me a couple of names and walked off.

      The man had been falsely, speciously accused of sexual assault, indecent exposure, and organizing parties in which he participated in serial drugging and gang-rapes. His wife and daughters were subjected to death threats.

      he did not “throw a fit” at all. He was correctly dismissive of idiotic questions.

      If you are asked a serious question by a serious questioner with whom you disagree or are debating, you say: Thank you for the question…” an then answer it.

      it was specifically people in the McCarthy hearings who responded to McCarthy with anger that brought down McCarthy.

      Kavanaugh displaying anger at the Democrats channeling McCarthy, was calculated and smart. It worked and shut the demagoguing Democrats up 🙂

      It was someone angrily interrupting McCarthy and yelling at to McCarthy: “Have you no sense of decency?” that gutted McCarthy, and McCarthyism which the Democrats now use as their stock and trade.

People can THINK whatever they like(and they do, including some real doozies, like the Earth is flat and the moon is made of cheese!), but guilty of a crime is something else again. That is supposed to require enough evidence that a crime was committed(Making a joke doesn’t qualify as a crime, no matter how distasteful it might be) to get 12 reasonable jurors to agree.
          But, it appears that we are now in an era where accusations have become evidence. I fail to see how that is possible, but with the idiots that are in charge, nothing surprises me any more.

    The latest desperate spin from the ultra left is that Kavanaugh looked to “angry” and answered two of the 250 questions “angrily.”

    The Democrats don’t know history or why the public found his angry answers compelling, honest and adding to his credibility.

    I suggest anyone curious go to youtube and search for: “Until this moment, Senator, I think I never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness….Have you no decency Senator”?

    The Democrats are the modern McCarthyites, and people who were polite to McCarthy got steamrolled, whereas it was someone interrupting McCarthy, and exhibit impolite and very angry responses to McCarthy that successfully cut McCarthy down.

    Kavanaugh was BRILLIANT with his focused anger because it was exactly what an honest person would do when faced with repeated questions, which he had already answered and which had become nothing more than smears from the Democrat Senators.

    As Ron White described, “satellites were linking up in outer space”…but literally so. A couple minutes later, we received word and the day got a whole lot better.
