Default Kavenaugh OMG

Has anyone been watching the confirmation hearings, where the GOP is attempting to affirm Brett Kavenaugh as the next Supreme Court justice?
I have never seen a more blatant attempt by Republicans to force their will on American citizens.
To save time, he is AGAINST everything most women, Democrats and sane people are FOR, and he's FOR issues that would outlaw a woman's right to have an abortion, things that would be bad for the environment, workers, the first amendment, sensible gun laws, and other issues that would allow Trump to further destabilize everything he touches, thinks about, or whatever else Putin tells him to do.
Perhaps his worst position would be to make it illegal to investigate, subpoena, impeach, indict or convict a president of anything while in office.

Good idea--C-Span is easier to watch.
The latest is, Kavenaugh has referred to birth control pills as "abortion inducing drugs."
It's a stunning new revelation.

I catch bits and pieces. I'd like to sit and watch it but can't. It'll just piss me off.

I wondered WTF was going with the interaction between Fred Guttenberg and Kavanaugh. Here's the deal...

I haven't been watching it, but I been getting all these "donate to me" emails from Kamala and Corey. Kavenaugh is going to be confirmed. The Dems are just posturing for 2020 or for the upcoming midterms. I am disgusted with them. Even so I'd vote for Kamala. Not Corey Booker though. He's owned by big Pharm. I'd vote third party first.

Kamala Harris was impressive, as was Maize Hirono. I also thought Booker was legit and brave. I don't agree with everything he's done, (true of everyone in politics), but I think publicly releasing the confidential emails took courage and strong political will. Because of Booker's actions that hypocrite weasel, Grassley, can no longer make bogus national security claims about withholding Kavanaugh's records.

I'm in (political) love with Kamala this week. Damn, she's a tough prosecutor. Sadly, I agree with Martina. Despite how beautiful Kamala is in action, the Republicans are going to get their wish and Trump will have hired his own partisan judge.

So, even though I'm a strong feminist and pro-choice advocate I don't think Kavanaugh's hostility towards women's autonomy is the most solid case against his appointment. Honoring settled law is an important concept, but the SCOTUS upheld anti-sodomy laws in 1986. That was 'settled law' for many years. Not that I'm equating the two, but I don't think a philosophy of rigid adherence to settled law is a good way to choose jurists because then we're mired in arguments about which settled laws we're inclined to keep.

Kavanaugh has perjured himself more than a few times. That's why the White House and the Senate Judiciary Committee have so zealously tried to keep his records secret. Kavanaugh is a fervent partisan who had no trouble promoting sordid conspiracy theories about Vince Foster's suicide, for instance. He has also sanctimoniously claimed that anyone who has ever committed perjury, (Bill Clinton), is unfit to serve. This article succinctly sums up the obvious:

Wow, Cheryl in NYC! I'm very impressed with the way you write! If you aren't an attorney, I'll bet you would have been a great one. Maybe a prosecutor in the Southern District of New York? They are fierce!

As for Kavenaugh, whenever I hear that someone may be of questionable character --on TV or even in person, I love to observe--okay, I mean obsessively scrutinize their behavior for telltale signs that confirm their shady reputations.
If anyone has a chance to see him again on TV, see if you notice that his smile seems genuine only for his fellow white, middle aged Republican pals, but otherwise you can tell he's a phony because his lips may be smiling, but his eyes look condescending, cold and malevolent.
When Kamala Harris started bearing down on him, he shot a look at her that could have melted paint off a car.
Clearly he does not appreciate assertive women, especially those of color.

Yes, Kavanaugh did say that birth control pills were "abortion inducing drugs."

So, that begs the question as to why does he and his wife of 14 years only have two children? One may assume having marital sex for over 14 years with no birth control, they would have at least 5 or 6 children.

Senators Collins and Murkowski can stop this madness. I have been calling both offices multiple times a day. Please get involved and vote, OUR lives depends on it. This is not hyperbole!
