Kavanaugh confirmed

This is good for the second amendment. And I bet, from now on, wherever he goes, someone offers to buy him a beer.

    The beer thing is already a meme which is okay, but I am not too happy with his first official act…find and read the article about having the first all-female staff of clerks and his related quotes from his hearing testimony. That is nothing but pandering and discrinstion, let’s hope that is not a harbinger of his judgement, as it were, going forward.

  2. JTC Says:

    “Discrimination”, don’t know wtf discrinstion is…

    Good for the second, bad for the fourth.

    Right Doc, ALL of the Bill of Rights are essential to our Liberty. It seems that “universal background checks”, so desired by so-called liberals, can not be enforced without violating 4th and 5th Amendment rights with a gun database (registry).

    What happened!! ??

    Once upon a time, liberals supported those rights as sacred, as I do! The SCOTUS Miranda decision was based upon the 5th Amendment. But I suppose that just as “innocent until proved guilty” as been cast aside, so too, those rights as long as innocent citizens are being vilified and their rights attacked for the crimes of a few.

    “…first all-female staff of clerks….”

    How about growing a future generation of conservative, 2A-friendly female justices?

    The man’s planning for the future – I like that.

  6. JTC Says:

    @Tim, employing gender preferences, set-asides, quotas, “affirmative action” or whatever else you call overriding qualifications no matter the agenda, is pure discrimination pure and simple…but BK says “that’s who I am”. Not what you want making such decisions on similar matters on the SC

  7. Tim Says:

    JTC, are you seriously asking us to sit around, wringing our hands, because f-cking LAWYERS might be suffering ‘discrimination’?

    I’ve got about 10,000 better things to worry about on my planet.

  8. JTC Says:

    Tim it ain’t about the lawyers it’s about our new conservative justice signalling his virtue for his own benefit…just what we need.

    Like I said, hope to hell it’s not a bad sign of things to come in the mold of his patron Kennedy.

    What Tim said. 😏

    Moreover, I don’t see that it’s saying “See, he likes women” as much as it is saying “Top women graduates from America’s top law schools trust him”.

    To be clear I am very appreciative of a mostly reliably conservative (he was on the wrong side on obamacare) addition to the court going forward -one can only imagine the nature of the two most recent justices if the Beast had chosen them- but that still just does not excuse such blatant and premeditated action as this…there is no statement of the women being the most qualified or most deserving of these coveted positions, the overriding criteria was that they be female, as the judge said in his own words at his hearing, intended to gain favor and signal his non-discriminatory virtue to those who in turn had only that as their criteria…and in the process exposed a blatant willingness to discriminate to benefit himself:

    “New Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh has made good on his pledge to hire women to serve as his law clerks, becoming the first justice to have an all-female staff.

    Kavanaugh said during his Senate confirmation hearings that he has made a special effort to hire women after reading a story years ago about the unequal balance between men and women hired for prestigious clerkships at the Supreme Court and for other federal judges.

    “My women law clerks said I was one of the strongest advocates in the federal judiciary for women lawyers,” Kavanaugh said at the hearing. “And they wrote that the legal profession is fairer and more equal because of me.”

    He added: “In my time on the bench, no federal judge — not a single one in the country — has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have.”

    Kavanaugh told the senators that as part of a contingent plan should he be confirmed, he had to hire “a first group of four law clerks who could be available to clerk at the Supreme Court for me on a moment’s notice.”

    He added: “All four are women. If confirmed, I’ll be the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all-women law clerks. That is who I am.”

    New justices often hire former clerks to Supreme Court justices or their own former clerks to fill such positions. But only one of the four, Kim Jackson, worked for Kavanaugh on the appeals court.

    That’s just wrong: whether set-asides are racial, sexual, cultural or whatever, discrimination is discrimination and it has no place on a body which will likely be reviewing important cases regarding it…think so-called reverse discrimation on race, sexual orientations re private property rights, immigrants and religion, and yes exactly the sexual discrimination he himself was so savagely subjected to in this process. Whether or not these women are the most qualified was irrelevant and that certainly discriminates against those who were, regardless of gender.

  11. JTC Says:

    BTW, I’m done now…sorry Unc, for what Kevin would call an uber comment string, but it’s an important, viable, and potentially worrisome issue for the long term.

  12. Mike Voncannon Says:

    Kavanaugh has always had mostly female law clerks. In his hearings, he said it was to honor his mother, who was one of the first female judges in Maryland. If he raised a crop of conservative female judges, better for all of us. I’m not sure he’ll be that bad on 4th Amendment cases. One of his opinions I read said he held for the government only because of Supreme Court precedent. Now that he’ll be in a position to shape that precedent, things might change.

  13. Will Says:

    If he is virtue-signaling or trying to appease the Left he is a fool. That puts one in a no-win situation. You can not win trying to play their game.

    I strongly suggest everyone read
