Kavanaugh Likely to be Confirmed as Associate Justice Kennedy’s Successor on the Supreme Court, says AMAC

WASHINGTON, DC – Senate Democrats seek to put up a united front against President Trump’s selection of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.  But, political analysts – Democrat and Republican – seem to believe it is a losing battle, says Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC].

“Those opposed to Kavanaugh have sought to convince moderate Republicans Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine to vote against his confirmation.  But, in recent weeks both Collins and Murkowski have indicated they are comfortable with his nomination.  Meanwhile, there are a slew of Red State Democrats who are up for re-election who can take their places if either of them or both have last minute reservations,” according to Weber.

Weber says he is confident that Kavanaugh has enough support to pass muster in the Senate.  “Democratic leaders are deceptively and disingenuously attempting to persuade their colleagues otherwise.  They are seeking to convince the American people that he is not qualified but his credentials and his career show that he is eminently up to the task.”

A simple majority in the Senate is all that it will take to confirm Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court.  And, even if Senator John McCain [R-AZ] is unable to travel to Washington for the vote due to ill health, it still leaves Republicans with a 51 to 49 advantage since Vice President Pence would cast the deciding ballot.

It should be noted that not all who call themselves Liberals are opposed to the Kavanaugh selection.  Liberal Yale Law School professor Akhil Reed Amar recently published an Opinion Article in the New York Times extolling the virtues of Judge Kavanaugh.  It was entitled A Liberal’s Case for Brett Kavanaugh and in it Amar wrote: “The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be the next Supreme Court justice is President Trump’s finest hour, his classiest move.  Last week the president promised to select ‘someone with impeccable credentials, great intellect, unbiased judgment, and deep reverence for the laws and Constitution of the United States.’ In picking Judge Kavanaugh, he has done just that.”

In addition, there are nine Democrats who are up for reelection in states that voted heavily for President Trump in November 2016 and they risk alienating voters if they go against Kavanaugh.  They are Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Doug Jones of Alabama, Bill Nelson of Florida, Jon Tester of Montana, Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin.

“It’s unlikely that all of them will oppose their Democratic Senate colleagues and support Mr. Trump’s pick for the court.  It is likely that a few could and would do just that, but I don’t think that enough of them will vote to derail his appointment,” Weber opined.

“The fact is that Kavanaugh is widely considered the best person to succeed Justice Kennedy.  Not because he is a conservative, but because he is a thoughtful and honest jurist who has shown that he will protect the Constitution.  He is opposed on the left because there are those who would like a more flexible candidate on the Court—someone who would not be bound by the Constitution and who would legislate from the bench.  They would like to see a deciding vote on the Supreme Court bench who would enable the progressive elements in America to turn our constitutional republic into a socialist state.  That’s not going to happen.”

I wouldn’t know where to begin to look for a better Supreme Court Justice than Brett Kavanaugh.
Good job, President Trump.

Any judge that thinks they can legislate from the bench should be recalled. A judge’s responsibility is to determine if a law is legal with regard to the Constitution, NOT their POLITICAL opinion. Thank God that Trump got elected, we need more politicians like him and less like Schumer, Pelosi, Warren, Sanders, Feinstein, Harris, Waters, and any of the others like these radical socialist fools. Everyone needs to get out and vote them out in the next election and ALL the future elections.

If they are not opposed they should stand up and say so and put down the rest for their part in organizing a coup against President Trump and the American people for he does not stand alone. I am one of the people and I look at all Democrat lawmakers as the Hitler Organization

It’s a pity that the Socialist Democrats can’t view a candidate on the person’s merits and not just who nominated him. I look forward to President Trump nominating replacements for Ginseng and Breyer.

Anybody with a right mind knows that this man is more than qualified. We the public are getting very weary of all the hatred, attacks, and abuse that keeps playing out before our eyes.

In God We Trust. God Bless America and our President. The left just can’t seem to accept defeat. What I don’t understand is how Hillary got away from being put in jail for all her crimes. Make AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

The liberals should be made to pay for the wasted time and money obstructing the government processes. Want proof? No matter who Trump selected, they planned to drag it out.

ONTIME

Unless the left wrings out Kavanugh’s underwear and finds a lump in it, his chances seem to improving daily for confirmation and the rest of his family has passed muster, even the saner libs are making wooing noises forcing the D’s laced with malice and TDS to back down and take a new strategy into consideration or perhaps a longer view of their self imposed peril…..
