Disgusting 11th hour ploy by Democrats


#241

Patrick J. Smyth attended Georgetown Prep — an all-boys school in North Bethesda, Maryland — alongside Kavanaugh. Both men graduated in 1983. Smyth signed a letter this summer, before the allegations against Kavanaugh were made public, testifying that Kavanaugh “is singularly qualified to be an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court,” along with dozen other of the school’s alumni.

“I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as ‘PJ’ who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post,” Smyth says in his statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee. “I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh.”

Start a thread on your topic, unless you’re scared to discuss it.


#244

Democrats are still saying that they’ve been denied 90% of the material related to Kavanaughs career!


#245

100% of his opinions are available… go away nazis

Well you don’t know that…

They rendered the additional material irrelevant by declaring at the outset that they would vote no on Trump’s nominee.


#250

Can you provide a link or cite to where he said it?


#251

If she cared about it’s truth or falsity, she would have raised it in the hearing. She didn’t raise it until after the hearing because this is just a stunt to delay confirmation.


#252

Well, there’s no doubt that the democrats would like to delay the hearing, they’d like to see the mountain of work that Kavanaugh has produced that the GOP refuses to release. But also, they are not happy that Garland was denied even a hearing, which would have pissed you off if you weren’t such a partisan.


#253

You mean all of his opinions that are released


#254

They were prepared to vote no without even knowing who he was let alone what he wrote so they’re full of crap. As for Garland, the senate was in republican hands and they were under no more obligation to approve Obama’s pick than Democrats are to approve Trump’s. Republicans didn’t want Garland so there was no point to a hearing. The process has become highly political because the court has increasingly legislated from the bench.

McConnell made it clear… He’s position was not in opposition to Garland… it was in opposition to the consent of any nominee that Obama would offer to fill the Scalia chair. It was about Obama in the last days of his presidency being able to put a permanent stamp on an already left leaning ideological court. So, no, it wasn’t a character assassination of Garland. The interesting thing here is that the progressive, democratic socialist left do not see a constitutionalist as balanced and unbiased in their ideology… They don’t want a constitutionalist, they want precedence upholders so that what ever a left leaning congress can pass, the judiciary will rubber stamp… The fact is, the one thing I like about this man is that he, while holding to stare decisis, he does not hold any previous decision as sacrosanct if that decision rubs against the Constitution… and the left hate the constitution as an impediment to their mission… of course Obama wasn’t much concerned with the constitution in his journey as a matter of fact, he considered it ‘seriously flawed’ yet, rather than proposing and Article V change… he just ignored it. He is not the kind of man I would want to choose a judge and after some 7 and a half years of damage I agree that at such a late stage, he of all people should get to put his final stamp on the court as he had already done enough damage with the two he already picked.


#256

All of his opinions are a matter of public record.

Read of them all. Here are descriptions of 306 of them.

#257

They want an activist left leaning judge on the SCOTUS just like Sotomayor and Kagan.

Neither rule per the constitution but by their living constitution beliefs.

#259

The same thing the democrats are being accussed of doing. Just opposing Trump. :roll_eyes:


#260

Not only is that completely subjective bullshit. Advise and consent is not obstruct and resist. :wink:
