President Trump has announced his choices for the Supreme Court – the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Your thoughts ?
Some conservative critics are considering the following as Kavanaugh’s major flaws:
He has a heavy base of support particularly among former Bush administration staffers.
That in Seven Sky, he went out of his way to avoid jurisdiction over Obamacare by classifying its fine as a tax, and in doing so, provided Chief Justice Roberts the club he would later wield to uphold Obamacare against Constitutional challenge.
That in Priests for Life, Kavanaugh expressed that the government had a “compelling government interest” in provision of contraceptive coverage.
That in Garza, Kavanaugh didn’t join a dissent that criticized Roe v. Wade, instead rejecting the government’s necessity to provide an abortion for an illegal immigrant on other grounds.
Lastly, Kavanaugh granted standing to an atheist suing the government over the Pledge of Allegiance.
Before you share your thoughts – Keep these in mind, too:
A. Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to his current position on the Court of Appeals for DC back in May 2006.
B. In 2009, he wrote in an article. “The indictment and trial of a sitting President, moreover, would cripple the federal government.” However, Kavanaugh went on to write: “If the President does something dastardly, the impeachment process is available. No single prosecutor, judge, or jury should be able to accomplish what the Constitution assigns to the Congress.”
C. That – according to many – if confirmed, Kavanaugh is an originalist who would have the second most conservative score next to Justice Thomas.
D. That – While in private practice, Kavanaugh served as Chairman of the Federalist Society’s Religious Liberty Practice Group.
E. That – Kavanaugh and his wife Ashley, have two daughters. He is a regular lector at his church, the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament.
Prayers for all involved are very much needed and appreciated.
