Kavanaugh Thinks Presidents Should Unilaterally Declare Statutes Unconstitutional


Dem Senator Amy Klobuchar appeared on Meet The Press yesterday and made a forceful case against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. One of her arguments caught Yours Truly’s attention because it proves Kavanaugh is so radical, that Dem Senators must fight his confirmation tooth and nail. According to Senator Klobuchar, Kavanaugh thinks Presidents should be able to unilaterally declare statutes unconstitutional. This is such a radical and dangerous position, it should be an automatic disqualifier to Kavanaugh’s confirmation.


Senator Klobuchar’s full Meet The Press interview is available here but the relevant clip is below

Think about that folks–Brett Kavanaugh thinks it would be okay if Trump just woke up one day and invalidated say the Voting Rights Act, or the Fair Labor Standards Act(minimum wage laws), or the Clean Air/Water Acts etc. Folks this makes Kavanaugh the quintessential radical jurist.

Bottom line there are already a lot of reasons Dem Senators including those from Red/Trump states should outrightly reject Kavanaugh, but this bombshell from Sen Klobuchar makes his rejection by all Senate Dems an absolute necessity. Simply put no Dem Senator including those from Trump states, should vote to confirm this radical jurist.

Dem Senators Heitkamp & Manchin Must Hold The Line On Kavanaugh


Ever since President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court, the running narrative among mainstream media types has been that Dem Senators Joe Manchin(WV) and Heidi Heitkamp(ND) who are up for reelection this year, have no otherwise but to vote for Kavanaugh because Trump won decisively in both West Virginia and North Dakota in 2016.

In other words according to the mainstream media talking heads, it would be political suicide if the two Dem Senators from Trump-popular states opposed Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Recent events however suggest that during his confirmation hearings for the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, Kavanaugh may have lied under oath to Congress–a felony. This is such a serious issue that U.S. Senators need to get to the bottom of before casting their vote for or against Kavanaugh. Senate Republicans are working hard to hide from the public, documents that could prove Kavanaugh lied to Congress. Against this backdrop, Dem Senators Heitkamp and Manchin have a duty not to allow Senate Republicans to ram Kavanaugh through without proper vetting especially as regards to his potential felonious conduct. Simply put, Senators Heitkamp and Manchin must hold the line on Kavanaugh.


There is also such an egregious double standard surrounding what Senate Republicans are trying to do with Kavanaugh compared to what they demanded with Obama’s Supreme Court nominees Sotomayor and Kagan. This tweet by Sen Kamala Harris(D-CA) perfectly illustrates this egregious double standard.


Senators Heitkamp and Manchin should also be sympathetic to pleas by their fellow Senator Patrick Leahy(D-VT) who is desperate to get to the truth about Kavanaugh because it was him that Kavanaugh potentially lied to under oath. Senator Leahy deserves to know the truth about Kavanaugh.


Bottom line if Senators Heitkamp and Manchin vote for Kavanaugh without inquiring as to whether he lied under oath to Congress–a felony–it will be an exercise of extreme cowardice and quite frankly a dereliction of their senatorial duty to properly vet nominees to the highest court in the land. They must hold the line on Kavanaugh.
