On the third day of the Senate Judiciary committee confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court judge (Wednesday Sept. 6), the Democrats continued to play dangerous politics. They have tried to delay the confirmation process, and they have questioned the legality and legitimacy of the hearing and confirmation process.
Overall, it appears the Democrats’ goal is to discredit the Supreme Court if and when Kavanaugh is confirmed, and thus make the same claim they do regarding Trump’s election. If the Democrats and the Left allege the Supreme Court is "illegitimate" because Kavanaugh is on the Bench, it will be a very serious blow to law and order in America.
Since November 2016, Democrats and their media allies have constantly undermined Americans’ confidence in the Constitution and in the Trump election because he won the Electoral College and lost the popular vote. Now they will undermine the Supreme Court and the rule of law.
For example, it has been obvious to anyone watching the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing that Democrats on the Committee and liberals in attendance have been disruptive with protests and political tantrums. To Democrats and liberals, it’s all about political theater, and civil behavior and Senate rules and procedures don’t matter.
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, admitted he violated the rules of the Senate with releasing private confidential information. But he arrogantly challenged the Senate Republican leadership to do something about his misbehavior. Perhaps he believes he has special rights and can play the victim because he is a minority and a member of a "protected class".
It is also fascinating how Democrats on the Senate Judiciary committee suddenly want to be "bi-partisan", when they have already publicly stated they would not vote for Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Such hypocrites!
When Democrats controlled the White House, the Senate, and the House, President Obama told Republicans in a public meeting that “Elections have consequences.” They “ramrodded” Obamacare into law, while then Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted they hadn’t read the legislation. They also confirmed Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, even though she was clearly not the most qualified attorney, but more so because of her gender and ethnicity.
The shenanigans in the Kavanaugh hearing are another example of the Democrats’ attempt to further undermine America’s confidence in the Constitution, the Rule of Law, and... in itself. Just as they claim Trump’s presidency is illegitimate, they will say the same of the Supreme Court if and when Cavanaugh is confirmed, and in the insecure and devious minds of Democrats and liberals, this will justify more of their lawless and amoral behavior.
