GOP Continue Their War On the Constitution With Brett Kavanaugh

1. Brett Kavanaugh Seems Like Another Unconstitutional, Lying Bush Administration Stooge
2. GOP's War On the Constitution: Religious Liberty (Christians Allowed To Discriminate As They Wish Like A Theocracy) VS Constitutional Freedom (Everyone Is Equal Under The Law)
3. GOP Take "Betraying Thier Oath To the Constitution" To A Whole New Level!

When dealing with issues of the State, Republicans have always chosen some random theory promoted by their leaders rather than cold hard facts (even today). But with pushing for Brett Kavanaugh, a person who has literally defied the Constitution, what the GOP have really done is take their war on the Constitution to the next level, once again! Overview...

GOP actions on Kavanaugh accusation expose bad faith motives Ben Wittes, editor in chief of Lawfare, talks with Rachel Maddow about why Republicans seem to be avoiding ways to ascertain the truth in the accusation of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh, and whether Donald Trump is likely to fire Rod Rosenstein in a move to shut down the Mueller investigation.

An ideologue (a person who chooses religion over science and thus religion over the constitution) should not be a judge anyways as a judge is supposed to be fair and religious people can't be fair. Its why the Founders separated church and state. That said, Brett Kavanaugh doesn't even have opinions which can't even be considered to be American much less constitutional...

Brett Kavanaugh Once Argued That a Sitting President Should Be Above the Law And that should be disqualifying.

A former staff secretary in the Executive Office of the President of the United States under President George W. Bush, Kavanaugh now serves on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He is a rigid right-wing ideologue who, if confirmed, would move the court far to the right. “The president pulled Judge Kavanaugh’s name from a pre-approved list concocted by radical, far-right special interests that are committed to undermining a woman’s right to choose, health care protections, safeguards for workers and seniors, LGBTQ rights, and a host of other critical public protections that touch the lives of every New Mexican and every American,” explains Senator Tom Udall (D-NM). “These extreme groups put Judge Kavanaugh’s name on their list for a reason.”

But believers in the rule of law should be concerned that something else about this nominee appealed to Donald Trump. Kavanaugh has been an open advocate for precisely the sort of imperial presidency that the founders of the American experiment feared—and that Donald Trump relishes

There is open speculation that Trump’s grip on the presidency is threatened by the special counsel’s investigation. But the high court could avert that threat. And Trump has every reason to believe that his nominee could tip the balance of a closely divided court in his favor. As Bloomberg News has noted, “Kavanaugh addressed some of the constitutional issues that could emerge from an investigation like Mueller’s in a 2009 Minnesota Law Review article.” What Kavanaugh wrote three years after he assumed his current position on the DC Circuit ought to trouble everyone who believes that the president is a servant of the people, rather than “a king for four years.”
“I believe it vital that the President be able to focus on his never-ending tasks with as few distractions as possible. The country wants the President to be ‘one of us’ who bears the same responsibilities of citizenship that all share. But I believe that the President should be excused from some of the burdens of ordinary citizenship while serving in office,” argued Kavanaughin the law-review article. He then asserted that “the indictment and trial of a sitting President, moreover, would cripple the federal government, rendering it unable to function with credibility in either the international or domestic arenas. Such an outcome would ill serve the public interest, especially in times of financial or national security crisis.”
That statement anticipated Rudy Giuliani’s most over-the-top defenses of President Trump. And, as with Giuliani’s rants, Kavanaugh’s arguments reject history, legal precedents, and the logic of a system that is supposed to place the rule of law over the rule of men.

After the GOP did 9/11, Brett Kavanaugh followed the crowd and began promoting dictator type rule that GOP needs to not have to suffer any consequences for thier actions (i.e. all signs indicate a total traitor);

Kavanaugh did not always embrace a monarchical interpretation of the presidency. He worked with independent counsel Kenneth Starr during the period leading up to the 1998 impeachment of former President Bill Clinton. But Kavanaugh has since suggested that he was mistaken to believe “that the President should be required to shoulder the same obligations that we all carry.”
“Looking back to the late 1990s, for example, the nation certainly would have been better off if President Clinton could have focused on Osama bin Laden without being distracted by the Paula Jones sexual harassment case and its criminal investigation offshoots,” mused Kavanaugh in his law-review article, which proposed that “Congress might consider a law exempting a President—while in office—from criminal prosecution and investigation.”
Kavanaugh can be accused of hypocrisy. But he will not be accused of pulling his political punches when it comes to promoting an imperial presidency with lines like “No single prosecutor, judge, or jury should be able to accomplish what the Constitution assigns to the Congress.”

Republicans have no interest in any sort of discussion for their ideologue (given the Republican agenda of treason it makes sense, 'the more traitors the better'), so the more bad stuf that comes out the faster they want to push the nominee through, showing thier ill intentions once again (i.e. 'party over country' is the GOP mantra);

Fox News has failed to mention that Republican staffers reportedly knew about the second report of sexual misconduct by Brett Kavanaugh According to The New Yorker, some “senior Republican staffers” were aware of Deborah Ramirez’s claims last week -- Republican lawmakers chose to push for a faster confirmation.
In its reporting on a disturbing new account of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Fox News has entirely ignored part of the story, initially published in The New Yorker, that Republican staffers were aware of the allegation last week, and that rather than calling for an investigation into the reported incident, GOP senators pushed for a faster confirmation. Instead, reporters for the network have been parroting claims from these senators that they only found out about the new account from the New Yorker report.
According to The New Yorker (emphasis added):
The offices of at least four Democratic senators have received information about the allegation, and at least two have begun investigating it. Senior Republican staffers also learned of the allegation last week and, in conversations with The New Yorker, expressed concern about its potential impact on Kavanaugh’s nomination. Soon after, Senate Republicans issued renewed calls to accelerate the timing of a committee vote. The Democratic Senate offices reviewing the allegations believe that they merit further investigation.

Lawrence: Republicans have no intention of fair hearing for Ford Trump has started questioning Dr. Ford's accusation against Brett Kavanaugh and Mitch McConnell told an audience that he has the votes to confirm Kavanaugh. Lawrence says that indicates Republicans do not plan to treat Dr. Ford's hearing fairly.

BTW, producing a calendar? He definitely did it.

Brett Kavanaugh produces his calendar from 1982 to dispute accusations of sexual assault and a second woman comes forward with allegations against the SCOTUS nominee.
