Democrats' demented assault on Brett Kavanaugh

President Trump introduced Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for Supreme Court Justice ceremony yesterday

Kavanaugh and Gorsuch served as law clerks to Kennedy at the same time early in their legal careers.

The director did not mention how Mr. Kavanaugh's 12 years on the US appeals court failed to draw the attention of doomsday activists until now. He was appointed to that post by President George W. Bush, after serving as Bush's White House staff secretary.

NOM and other conservative groups have launched massive lobbying operations in favour of Kavanaugh, who was vetted by the anti-LGBT Heritage Foundation and Federalist Society, both of whom have strongly opposed anti-discrimination protections for LGBT people. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Dallas and Lloyd Doggett of Austin - also expressed grave concerns about statements Kavanaugh made regarding investigations and indictments of sitting presidents. He served for two years as Senior Associate Counsel and Associate Counsel to the President.

In his 2006 confirmation hearing for the D.C. Circuit, New York Democratic Sen.

"We've got a few Democrats on Justice Gorsuch and we're hopeful that we'll have a few of them on this nomination as well", McConnell said during his weekly press availability.

Kavanaugh, in brief remarks at the White House, underscored his conservative credentials.

While Kavanaugh was summarizing Rehnquist's thinking and not explicitly adopting it as his own (nor did he say whether he interprets stare decisis to mean Roe should survive regardless of that critique), his summary of Roe as "freewheeling judicial creation of unenumerated rights" may be the clearest indicator yet that he thinks the case was wrongly decided. He has written roughly 300 opinions as a judge, authored several law journal articles, regularly taught law school classes and spoken frequently in public. Tonight's selection of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who was included on this list, seems to be the culmination of a process that further erodes traditional norms.

Republicans will target three Democrats facing re-election in conservative states where Trump won big majorities in the 2016 election - Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Joe Donnelly of in - to support Kavanaugh.

"The Republicans have enough senators for a confirmation, and the Republican senators have not signaled any real appetite to say no", he said, adding that even if Kavanaugh were blocked, it's unlikely Trump's next pick would be any more palatable to Democrats. Trump is announcing his pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on Monday night.

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer vowed an all-out battle against Kavanaugh, but senators in his party can not block Kavanaugh's confirmation if no Republicans break ranks. "But I wouldn't have a broad rule that you can't, you know, review anything against President Trump because he chose you". The White House said Monday that former Arizona Sen. The Senate must vote to confirm the nomination. Thomas, at 70, is the oldest of the court's remaining Republican appointees.

Carmelo Anthony Granted Permission To Meet With Rockets, Heat
Anthony and the Thunder are working towards a buyout though he could also be traded and waived thereafter. Anthony expressed to the Thunder at the end of the team's playoff run he would not accept a bench role.

Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, a senior Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, has said judges probably shouldn't face recusal just because Trump picked them.

"This incredibly qualified nominee deserves a swift confirmation and robust, bipartisan support", Trump said.

If Republicans lose the Senate, they would still have control of the chamber until January. "The most important thing we can do". Like Trump's first nominee previous year, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who could help remake the court for decades to come with rulings that could restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back key parts of Obamacare.

Red state Democrats also kept an open mind on Tuesday.

But one of their prime targets, Sen.

The Democratic senator is up for re-election this year in a state Trump won in 2016.

Trump also met with Republican Sens.

Democrats are specifically targeting two pro-choice Republicans, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. While he has yet to reveal his sentiments on the 1973 Supreme Court decision that established a constitutional right to abortion access, he was involved with a dispute over whether a pregnant migrant woman who was being held by immigration authorities could receive an abortion in 2017, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"There are millions of Ohioans who would potentially lose their insurance if these five men on the court take away their consumer protections of people with preexisting conditions", said Brown. But almost all Senate Democrats and many Democratic voters are expected to oppose Trump's nominee.

His nomination sparked immediate and furious opposition from many Senate Democrats still bitter over Republicans' refusal to process former President Barack Obama's final high court nominee and fearful of the impact an even more rightward-leaning court could have on America's legal landscape.
