The Kool-Aid had been chilled and the signs with the names of each of the 4-nominees had been preprinted well in advance, waiting only for President Trump’s SCOTUS announcement.
The performers had already assembled (days in advance) in front of the Supreme Court and White House, in anticipation of Monday’s planned announcement. Pro-choice activists holding up purple signs reading “Protect Roe” and “Don’t Criminalize Abortion,” had already staked out the best vantage-point in front of the cameras while rehearsing their lines into a bullhorn shouting “abortion is violence” and “uphold the Constitution of the United States of America.”
All that was needed was a villain and at around 9:00 pm the announcement came from the East Room of the White House, the President had picked 53-year old Appeals Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be the next Supreme Court Justice.
The president praised Kavanaugh’s “impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law.”
Adding, “There is no one in America more qualified for this position, and no one more deserving.”
The announcement immediately galvanized the assembled mob, and within seconds of the president’s announcement, the unhinged left finally had their villain, chanting: “Kavanaugh has got to go!”
The chant was followed by an extremist group calling themselves Democracy for America branding the nominee a “reactionary ideologue” whose confirmation would “directly lead to the deaths of countless women with the dismantling of abortion rights.”
Then came the same Democratic cast of characters that we’ve come to expect, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, taking to the podium to speak to the frenzied crowd. Sanders yelled into the mic, “Are you ready to fight?” and “Are you ready to defend Roe vs. Wade”? The response from the frazzled wild-eyed crowd standing behind the disheveled socialist was a resounding “yes!”
However, this was just the opening act by the assembled mob of assorted loons. The Women’s March also gave this ominous announcement, “Trump’s announcement today is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States.”
“Stripping a woman’s ability to make decisions about her own body is state violence,” the group continued. “We cannot let this stand. We will raise our voices and take to the streets.”
The mob’s meltdown continued well into the night, with one frazzled fringe group after another taking turns in condemning the president’s choice and vilifying his nominee.
For the record Judge Kavanaugh had been the president’s pick from the moment Justice Kennedy informed the president on June 27th that he was stepping down.
Moreover, Judge Kavanaugh has won the respect and admiration of his peers in the legal community and demonstrates a firm understanding of the role of a judge in our Republic, which is to faithfully follow our Constitution as written by our Founders.
However, it appears the confirmation process will end up being an all-out war with the left, with perhaps a few vulnerable red-state Democrats breaking away from the death-grip of their leadership to endorse Judge Kavanaugh.
The esteemed nominee already knows what to expect from the hostile opposition stating, “I will tell each senator that I revere the Constitution. I believe that an independent judiciary is the crown jewel of our constitutional republic.”
Adding, “If confirmed by the Senate, I will keep an open mind in every case, and I will always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American rule of law.”
