Women's March slammed for goof in statement on Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination

Women's March slammed for goof in statement on Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination

Not long after President Donald Trump nominated Federal Appeals Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, protesters, along with a handful of Democratic senators, gathered in front of the Supreme Court vowing to block the nomination.

"What Kavanaugh has said or written does not specifically answer where he stands on the issue on abortion", said Geoffrey R. Stone, a law professor at the University of Chicago. As a young lawyer, he clerked for Justice Kennedy. Sure, depending how the confirmation process develops, it's possible the nomination could affect a handful of races, but the most likely scenario will not change the overall trajectory of the November elections.

"Roe v. Wade will be here forever", said Fitzpatrick.

For his part, Booker - who joined protesters on the steps of the Supreme Court on Monday night just after Kavanaugh's nomination was announced - has echoed activists' warnings that Kavanaugh could undercut Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act, but has focused primarily on arguing that Trump shouldn't appoint a Supreme Court justice while his campaign's ties to Russian Federation are the subject of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Kavanaugh, 53, is well respected by the Republican establishment, although some on the right have said he is not conservative enough.

But there's another thing about Kavanaugh that should scare you.

Israel Intercepts Incoming Drone from Syria
Russia, another top key ally of Assad, has warned it would be unrealistic to expect Iran to fully withdraw from the country. The army said it will "not allow any violation of Israeli airspace and will act against any attempt to hurt our civilians".

"Voting against Kavanaugh could very well give their Republican challengers the support they need to vote them out of office", he said.

"No investigation of a president!"

"Back in 2009, Kavanaugh wrote that Congress should pass a law 'exempting a president - while in office - from criminal prosecution and investigation, including from questioning by criminal prosecutors or defense counsel, '" Colbert read.

"Sen. Sessions has not demonstrated a commitment to a central requisite of the job to aggressively pursue the congressional mandate of civil rights, equal rights and justice for all of our citizens", Booker said then. The vetting process, he said, is "going to be thorough and going to be done right".

And in case you're wondering, no, he doesn't support the constitutional mandate for separating church and state. He believes that even in red states, Democratic senators can cite preserving the Affordable Care Act as the "number one" reason they'd vote against Kavanaugh's confirmation. And like Harris, he is playing up the stakes of the Supreme Court battle.

The court is also a steppingstone for the Supreme Court.

Drake takes over Wireless Festival after DJ Khaled cancels
The head honcho of Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) also invited label mate Mayorkun to perform " Che Che Che" and "Mama". American rapper Cardi B also pulled out of appearing at Wireless earlier this year when she revealed her pregnancy.

Meanwhile, the NRA is thrilled about the nomination of a judge widely perceived as pro-gun rights. Flake is one of Trump's most vocal critics, but he seems to be OK with this Supreme Court nominee.

He also has a awful record on environmental law, doesn't support labor rights, disapproves of agencies like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and opposes affirmative action.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky called Kavanagh "one of the most thoughtful jurists" in the country but warned of an onslaught of "fear mongering" from liberal groups trying to derail the nomination.

The goal, at least according to the strategy memo, is clear: find something that can damage- or help damage - Kavanaugh's nomination. Now is a good time to contact your senators and express your opinion on confirmation hearings and the nominee.

This opposition is on account of Kavanaugh's politics, reflected in his record of judgments. The court plays a particularly oversized role in environmental law, as it hears most disputes over national regulations. "His extensive judicial record is defined by fairness, thoughtfulness, thoroughness and analytical precision".

Many D.C. Circuit nominees historically "have worked in the Justice Department or the executive branch or somewhere in D.C. government circles", he said at the time.
