The De-Legitimizing of the Supreme Court

Yesterday, the Band-Aid was ripped off: our Supreme Court is (and always has been) a political arm of the government. We somehow keep thinking that it is fair, and non-partisan as we discuss conservative justices versus liberal justices, and the odd swinger, and yet we somehow still try to believe that it is somehow above politics.

Then this man said this:

This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election, fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record, revenge on behalf of the Clintons, and millions of dollars and money from outside left-wing opposition groups. This is a circus. The consequences will extend long past my nomination. The consequences will be with us for decades. This grotesque and coordinated character assassination will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from serving our country, and as we all know, in the United States political system of the early 2000s, what goes around, comes around.

It’s absurd of course: buckets of money, dark money, poured into supporting Kavanaugh. I doubt that it was even distributed, as the Republicans have bigger donars who can buy bigger political wins.

No one could hear Kavanaugh’s wild conspiracy theories that a cabal of Clintons were trying to keep him off the court and at the same time believe that he’ll be fair and impartial about anything. Read that last line from the quote above, if you doubt me. He just threatened Bush v. Gore redux.

If Kavanaugh is confirmed his legacy will be the de-legitimizing of the court.

    The phrase of “Judicial Temperament” keeps going through my mind, but at the same time this is a piece of shit who lied to the FBI and Congress, is alleged to be a sexual predator and won’t ask for vindication because he knows it won’t come, and I can’t see anything good coming from this. The Conservative and Republican branch of our… I don’t even know what to call it… will do what they will and subvert the ideals of America. Fuck him.

    Laura summed up Kavanaugh perfectly – “Justice Gang Bang”. I don’t twitter, but it would be a great hashtag if you know what I mean and I think you do.

    I think it’s worse than that. I thing it’s the death knell of the US experiment with a constitutional democratic republic.
    K is the key to decades of legislation via judicial activism. (Remember, their true intent is always revealed by paying attention to what they accuse the filthy left of doing).
    This guy gets on the Court and the GOP can bypass Congress almost entirely with tsunamis of lawsuits challenging the constitutional validity of damn near everything that people of goodwill value — the ACA, the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, the EPA, OSHA, Social Security, Medicare, regulatory oversight of all kinds, you name it.
    That’s why they’re fighting so hard to ram this bastard through. The game now is about invalidating election outcomes by rendering the legislature irrelevant to the advancement of their agenda.

    All of this could have been avoided with one simple FBI investigation. Now, he has no credibility with the left and the right will not only expect revenge but demand it.

      So the R’s owners got everything they wanted: a stacked court, greater division within the country and justification to let their inner asshole run wild and free.
