Democrats Calling To Robert Bork Brett Kavanaugh
Democrats are now saying what they want to do, and that is at all cost prevent Trump from getting his Supreme Court Justice into the high court, they are set to try to pull a Bork on Kavanaugh, a move that I think will backfire on them.
The nomination of Robert H. Bork to the U.S. Supreme Court died on the afternoon of Friday, September 18, 1987. The blow was delivered inadvertently by one of his supporters on the Senate Judiciary committee, Wyoming’s Alan K. Simpson, on the fourth day of hearings for the Yale Law School professor and D.C. Circuit Court judge.
Simpson, the head of the Judicial committee asked Bork why he wanted to be a Supreme Court Justice, his reply, ”
This was the question that Simpson posed, the question that sunk Bork and changed the way modern-day judicial nominees approach the task of stating their views before the American people: “Why do you want to be an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court?”
His reply that “intellectual pursuits in the law,” and that serving on the Supreme Court “would be an intellectual feast,” was enough to set the left off on a frenzy, they ran with the emotional plea, that he cared only about the intellectual and not the emotional aspect of what he was doing, so they railroaded him out of the confirmation.
But there is a difference between then and now, back when the Democrats controlled the Senate, something they don’t do now, the GOP controls it, but by a narrow majority, but then all it will take is a majority to confirm Kavanaugh. There will be pressure put on the GOP members in tight races to pull back from this, but at this time it is expected to have all the GOP members to vote for him. What would give aid to this is if Arizona would quickly appoint a GOP Senator to replace McCain, would tighten up this vote, and hopefully not his wife, we don’t need more obstructionist and vindictive people in the Senate that should be aiding the GOP, not fighting against them.
The DNC knows that any move by the high court either towards the center or the right is going to challenge much of what they want to push in the future, they openly state that control of the high court is their number one challenge, may be why they are so desperate to not only get rid of Trump, but Pence as well.
But this is not the worst, you have Democrat Congressman, Steve Cohen, that called for a military Coup, not sure why he is still sitting in the office he holds now, what he is calling for is treason.
Where are our military folks ? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy! https://t.co/3eF7OLKEdN

It is this type of actions, our justice system that is hampered by liberal justices that is putting a halt to stopping such things, this is why not only do we need Kavanaugh to get seated on the high court, but we need to vote in record numbers like this country’s future depends on it. The hope is that Trump gets another 6 years in office, in that time one or more of the leftist Supreme Court seats will vacate, this will enable Trump and the GOP to put in place a justice, or more then one that will ensure the constitution is the rule of the land, not some liberal emotion.
