Last night, President Donald J. Trump selected Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to be our next associate justice for the Supreme Court. He’ll be filling the vacancy left by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. It was a highly anticipated decision. The composition of the Court will lead decidedly towards the right if Kavanaugh is confirmed. Hearings are scheduled for the summer, with final vote in early October—just in time for the midterms.
Yet, even before the announcement was made, the Left was going berserk. They had a full-blown meltdown when Kennedy announced his retirement shortly after the official end of the 2017 term. The news broke a little after Janus v. AFSCME was decided, dealing a blow to public sector unions squeezing non-union members for dues. It’s now an unconstitutional practice to force non-members to pony up money for activities they don’t support—and labor unions do a lot of that. The chances of an aftershock post-SCOTUS announcement were high, and it’s still not over. We should expect more insanity today and for most of the week.
Still, last night saw some very popcorn-worthy drama from the Left. Even before he was selected, the media was characterizing the pick as “controversial.” MSNBC spend a segment discussing ways in which liberals can derail this nomination. The Handmaid’s Tale, which no one watches, is now a reality…in the minds of the unhinged progressive Left. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he’s going to fight Kavanaugh with everything he’s got, which isn’t much to begin with. He’s going to repeal Roe v. Wade, which is liberals’ only concern. He’s anti-worker. And he’s also a pro-gun extremist—whatever that means. Oh, yeah, he’s white; that’s problematic. Great Odin’s raven, people!
