GOP: Remember Justice Kavanaugh? The Republicans don’t owe Dems anything on Amy Coney Barrett.
The House Judiciary posted a Tweet Monday morning during the first day of Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett emphasizing that the GOP doesn’t owe the Democrats anything after the party’s treatment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing last year.
The GOP is right.
Barrett is holding firm to her conservative yet unbiased positions during the pounding of questions coming from both Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. The young judge and professor, is being nominated for a lifetime position on the Supreme Court to fill the late and very liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s seat.
Barrett, a conservative and Ginsberg, who was a liberal, both understand and understood the battle against Washington’s political tsunamis. It will not be easy, just look at what happened with Kavanaugh.
This is President Donald Trump’s third and historic nomination to the Supreme Court. It is one that Democrats are fighting against with a vengeance, as they failed to push off the confirmation until after the Nov. 3 elections. But remember what Kavanaugh and his family went through during his confirmation hearings?
What was the Democrats reasoning then? Why did they attempt to destroy and tarnish a good man’s reputation with unsubstantiated lies and claims from witnesses that could not be verified. It certainly wasn’t because an election was around the corner and by the way, the American people elected President Trump to be President for four years.
On Monday Trump’s duty to the American people was being fulfilled with Barrett’s nomination. It was the right thing to do and the Democrats cries of fowl play because Trump is making the nomination just a month before the election is ridiculous and childish.
If anything, the tragic death of Ginsberg is all that happened that led to this very moment. But the Democrats have no excuse for how they treated Kavanaugh and his family during those horrific hearings on Capitol Hill last year.
Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham, who had staunchly defended Kavanaugh during his hearings, opened Monday’s hearing by reflecting on Barrett’s notable career in law saying “in my view, the person appearing before this committee is in a category of excellent, something the country should be proud of, and she will have a chance to make her case to be a worthy successor and to become the ninth member of the Supreme Court of the United States.”
He added that, “on September the 26th, Judge Amy Barrett was nominated by President Trump to the Supreme Court. Who is she? She is a judge sitting on the Seventh Judicial Circuit. She’s highly respected.”
The House Judiciary GOP posted the question I’ve been asking all weekend as I watched Democrats attempt to tarnish a great woman, who has been exalted by almost everyone she’s worked with since her time clerking for the Supreme Court to her tenure as a professor at Notre Dame University.
“Remember what they did to Brett Kavanaugh,” said the House Judiciary GOP. “We don’t owe the Democrats anything.”
I sure do.
I remember when Kavanaugh became the target of the left. The Democratic allies in main stream media assisted on tarnishing his good name. His nomination to the Supreme Court by Trump was all it took for the left to launch an all out assault on him.
Remember the lied strewn article published by The New York Times aptly titled Brett Kavanaugh Fit In With the Privileged Kids. She Did Not.
Th paper rehashed an old accusation by a woman named Deborah Ramirez. She alleged that Kavanaugh assaulted her during a dorm party at Yale University. She had no evidence, nor was there any information to suggest that this ever happened.
It didn’t matter.
The New York Times also delved into Kavanaugh’s so-called white privilege, alleged prejudice and every other angle you can imagine. It’s what the left, along with their media supporters, do best.
Kavanaugh is the villain of privilege and Ramirez is the innocent victim, who as a college student was forced to grow up too soon, read about it in the column I published last year.
Now, they are at it again, attempting to vilify a successful woman who will take the 9th seat on the Supreme Court.
President Trump is fulfilling his duty and if we hold the media and our lawmakers accountable we will be fulfilling ours as citizens of this great nation. Don’t be fooled by those who will do anything to stop the administration from doing what the founding father’s established in the Constitution.
Remember that the Democrats reaction against Barrett really has nothing to do with the citizens of this great nation, it only has to do with how they see the Supreme Court – as a means to an end, as a way of legislating from the bench if they have it packed with liberals.
