Democrats' Anti-Catholic Bigotry On Kavanaugh Will Cost Them In November

Democrats' Anti-Catholic Bigotry On Kavanaugh Will Cost Them In November

The letter criticizes the jurist's record.

"Let me say a word about the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court", Clinton told the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) at its national convention. The letter states 'We write today as Yale Law students, alumni, and educators ashamed of our alma mater.

As senators begin the process of vetting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, public disclosure forms show he's not almost as wealthy as numerous justices on the high court. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to oppose any nominee who threatens the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., were highlighting what they see as the threat to abortion rights from President Donald Trump's nomination of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

"If you had a bunch of people, Senate Democrats like Bill Nelson, coming out and say they did not want to confirm Judge Kavanaugh just based upon that issue, that would definitely motivate a big portion of the base", Ingoglia said, on the same conference call with Gaetz. "From the notorious Starr report, to the Florida recount, to the president's secrecy and privilege claims to post-9/11 legislative battles including the Victims Compensation Fund, to ideological judicial nomination fights, if there has been a partisan political fight that needed a very bright legal foot soldier in the last decade, Brett Kavanaugh was probably there", Sen.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., pointed to the Women's March statement as proof that he was correct when he said Sunday that Trump "could nominate George Washington and the left would go insane". Federal circuit judges make about $220,000 annually, and Kavanaugh also earned $27,000 from teaching at Harvard Law School previous year.

Wesolowski also said Kavanaugh would be hostile to the Affordable Care Act and to workplace protections for Americans.

"I hope in the end when push comes to shove that (Kavanaugh) will have acquitted himself in a way that will allow all 50 of our Republican senators to be able to vote for him", Thune said.

With Kavanaugh, Trump is replacing a swing vote on the nine-member court with a staunch conservative.

Some conservatives have expressed concerns about Kavanaugh, questioning his commitment to social issues like abortion and noting his time serving under President George W. Bush as evidence he is a more establishment choice.

About the only thing the Democrats and Republicans, conservative and the liberal alike, can agree on is that the stakes are great and a permanent conservative majority - permanent as politics can make and measure it - would make itself felt across the culture for decades to come.

Baldwin's opposition came after Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY joined all of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this week and asked Americans to rise up against Kavanaugh's nomination.

But if the confirmation debate becomes an argument over manners or how Republicans maneuvered to get to this point, Sanders suggested, the public - which he believes is mostly detached from Supreme Court-related jousting - will switch off.

"The Supreme Court could potentially rule on any of those state initiatives", Ledger says.
