Brett Kavanaugh sworn in as Supreme Court Justice!

UPDATE (Oct. 9):

Justice Brett Kavanaugh is already at work! He hired his clerks — all women — and will participate in oral arguments before the Supreme Court today.

This afternoon, Brett Kavanaugh, 53, was sworn in as 114th Supreme Court justice, hours after the Senate voted 50-48 to confirm him.

Chief Justice John Roberts administered the constitutional oath and retired Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the judicial one.

The quick swearing-in enables Kavanaugh to begin work immediately in advance of arguments at the court Tuesday.

The Senate voted today to confirm U.S. District Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be the next Associate Justice on the Supreme Court, replacing pro-abortion Justice Anthony Kennedy following his retirement.

Kavanaugh was confirmed on a 50-48 vote:

  • All Democrat senators, except Joe Manchin (WV), voted “no” against Kavanaugh’s nomination.
  • All Republican senators voted “yes,” except pro-abort Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), who voted “present”, and pro-life Steve Daines (Montana), who supported Kavanaugh but was absent due to his daughter’s wedding.

Kavanaugh secured enough votes yesterday when Senators Susan Collins (R) and Joe Manchin (D) agreed to support him.

Last night, Sen. Collins delivered an extended defense of Kavanaugh’s record and announced her intention to vote in favor of his confirmation. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) took to Twitter to praise Collins’ “strongly held principles” and to denounce the Left’s threats against Collins:

“Most will never know the full extent of the efforts to intimidate & threaten @SenatorCollins on the #Kavanaugh vote. I am not talking about political pressure or people screaming at her in an elevator. I am talking about vicious, vile & dangerous actions.”

On Twitter, deranged Leftists call Collins a “traitor to women”, a “rape apologist”, and demand she be forever harassed in public as a punishment for her vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Yesterday, when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell filed for cloture on Kavanaugh’s nomination, he said:

“This evening, the Senate will receive the results of the FBI’s supplemental background investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. This is now the seventh time the FBI has looked into Judge Kavanaugh’s background. And this information comes on top of what has already been one of the most thorough, most exhaustive Senate reviews of any Supreme Court nominee in our nation’s history.

Five days of public hearings. Sixty-five private meetings with Senators. More than 1,200 responses to written questions from members. More than 500,000 pages of documents for review — the most produced for any Supreme Court nomination in history. And the 300-plus opinions Judge Kavanaugh has issued during his 12 years on the D.C. Circuit. And now, Senators will have the evidence collected by this additional [FBI] background investigation for their consideration as well.”

I am doing a happy dance at this great news. Kavanaugh was put through hell and deserves our admiration for toughing it out. In regard to his “Wall Street Journal” op-ed, no apology for his behavior is needed–although he gave one. He trusted his gut at the hearing and spoke the truth. Those who called him emotional and having a unworthy judicial character were out to get him. Such people should not be pacified. God bless Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh.

Someone on Fox just bragged that Kavanaugh will be exactly like John Roberts, that their philosophies are identical. Let’s hope not. Please, no more rewriting of laws passed by Congress.

It is shameful and disgusting how the demoncrat party conducted themselves throughout this whole farce. No candidate from the left has ever been put through such a terrible character assassination, nor have they seen any scrutiny or opposition from the republicans. Only conservatives are ever subjected to this kind of unhinged debacle. The sole reason for the hearings is to verify the qualifications of candidates. And each time republicans seek to nominate, this insanity ensues.

Looks like 51 Senators (including Sen Daines of Montana, whose vote wasn’t needed) believed this:

It would be nice if he announced that he was beginning his lawsuits immediately. He could use some of that “Go Fund Me” money.

I wonder what we may have missed during all the dhemmie noise?
I think I’ll go check which bills Congress or Senate may have passed while nearly everyone was distracted.

Congratulations are in order not only to Justice Kavanaugh and his family for their perseverance, but for President Trump and the abusive and selective treatment he continues to endure as he proceeds to continue governance. But, more importantly, Congratulations are in order for the Rule of Law in America. As former CIA operative Robert David Steele has rightly observed (yesterday’s X-22 Report), Brett Kavanaugh will rule in the affirmative on military tribunals for deep-state criminals and traitors. The swamp cannot be drained without this operation being secured. As for a reversal of Roe Vs. Wade, I doubt that this will… Read more »

It’s nice to see our side get a WIN for a change! Susan Collins gave a good speech yesterday. And who would have thought that Lindsay Graham would grow a pair, eh? Miracles can still happen! One thing we must always remember is that we’ll have to keep fighting tooth and nail against the mentally deranged leftists (redundant?). Justice Kavanaugh’s (feels good to say that!) confirmation fight is but one battle; we have many more ahead of us to fight. This was our Midway or Guadalcanal; we have a long war ahead of us yet. Say what you want about… Read more »

A small margin but a great leap forward.

The number of FBI investigations prove there is NO satisfying the liberals until the result is in their favor.

What we have won is what Field Marshall Alfred von Schlieffen referred to as an “ordinary frontal victory”. We have met the enemy head-on and have prevailed. The enemy has been defeated and they have backed away but they are still organized and operating. A celebration is justified but it must be brief and focus should now be on how to reinforce this success. Senate censure of Feinstein, Pelosi and Schumer would be a good immediate goal.

EVERYTHING about totalitarian Antichrist atheists is rooted in one thing, the legal allowance for them to be able to murder their babies. The murder of babies is the largest genocide in all human history by far, greater than all the Islamic and Communist led genocides worldwide in the last 1400 years combined. In the last 70 years the genocide upon babies is over 500 MILLION+. The antichrist totalitarian atheist movement has never existed in all of human history, just like their global baby genocide agenda has never existed in human history, it is what will be the basis for THE… Read more »
