Left’s Newest Wrench Into The Kavanaugh Nomination
As we have seen, the left is desperately trying to throw a wrench into the Supreme Court pick by Trump, they at all cost wish to delay this until after the elections, and then will say with a new electorate coming in, they should delay that until Congress can vote with this change. In the end what they are most in fear of is losing control that they still currently have in the high court, but I doubt this will stop this from going forward, nor should it be able to. In other words, they will do everything within their power to keep Kavanaugh from being voted on.
We have all heard of the Biden Rule by now, the last year of a sitting president’s term, they should not be able to nominate a Supreme Court Justice in, although I will admit I found myself humored on how quickly Biden forgot this when he and Obama were trying to do the same thing, amazing how quickly they forget when the shoe is on the other foot, but this has never held true for midterm, or Kegan would never have been elected.
Judge Kavanaugh’s refusal to say a POTUS must comply w a duly issued subpoena & Mr Cohen’s implication of POTUS in a federal crime make the danger of Kavanaugh's nomination to the SCOTUS abundantly clear.
It's a game changer & Chairman Grassley should delay confirmation hearings

The reason the left is now pushing so hard on this is due to a paper Kavanaugh wrote on this, saying a president while sitting in office should not be able to be indicted, just as has been upheld by both the Justice Department and the High Court for years, but the fact that he agreed with this president has Schumer and the left in an uproar, they are claiming his support of this alone is enough not to elect him, thankfully he does not have the numbers to stop this, but he could try to use this to pressure anyone from the left who may be inclined to vote for Kavanaugh.
Americans don't want a president who is an unindicted co-conspirator in a crime to have the power to appoint someone to the Supreme Court. We should not proceed with Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings.

We see now the push the left is going to try to put out there; they are going to claim, legal precedence, that has held for 200+ years now is grounds not to vote. What you really have is not a case of judicial issue, it is the fact that the left doesn’t like this idea, they want it overturned and are willing to do whatever is needed to see to it, that is not the way the law works.
In light of yesterday’s events, the Senate should delay hearings on Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. There must be checks and balances on this President.

It would be a none issue of only Schumer was holding this position, but we now see the left trying to put in place a circling of wagons so as to stop this, you have more and more coming out saying the same thing, the record is broken, you will start to now hear this play over and over.
The left fears nothing more than having strict constitutionalist on the courts, they want the constitution to be a living document, one that can be changed to serve the times, to be bent when emotions dictate it, others like Kavanaugh believe that the constitution was written with the same protection and intent then as it is now, we need to look to the ideals the founders were putting in place when they wrote it, not what popular opinion today holds to change it, that is totally unacceptable to the left, they know a court filled with like-minded justices will not be so easy to manipulate, this is the greatest danger they see to putting in place what the left feels is their destiny.
I have cancelled my meeting with Judge Kavanaugh. @realDonaldTrump, who is an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal matter, does not deserve the courtesy of a meeting with his nominee—purposely selected to protect, as we say in Hawaii, his own okole.

The newest buzzword is a co-conspirator, but that has little to do with the facts, no plea deal has ever been used in such a manner, but the truth is not what the left is after, just the perception of truth.
At this moment in our nation's history, the Senate should not confirm a man to the bench who believes presidents are virtually beyond accountability, even in criminal cases; that they are essentially above the law and only Congress can check a president's power. #WhatsAtStake

We need to call, write, put pressure on our representatives, just the fact that the left finds Kavanaugh such a threat is enough to give pause, what is it that they fear, that he will not allow them to railroad this president out of power if they win control of one or two houses? That is reason enough for me to demand this vote takes place.
