Conservatives who backed Judge Brett Kavanaugh without examining his record are looking like complete fools. Before the sexual assault charges surfaced, he was already on record saying the atrocious Supreme Court decisions on abortion-on-demand and “gay marriage” were “settled law.” Now, his character is under assault as questions surface about the party atmosphere and secular nature of his Jesuit-run Catholic high school. Catholic “education” has become another crisis.
Republican presidents can make big mistakes, and Kavanaugh has clearly been another one. Remember that President Ronald Reagan made a mistake when he nominated another liberal Catholic, Anthony Kennedy, to the Supreme Court. “Judge Kennedy represents the best tradition of America’s judiciary,” Reagan had said at the time. In fact, Kennedy turned out to be a liberal activist judge on “gay marriage” and even abortion, leading to culture wars which accelerated under former President Barack Hussein Obama into a push for “transgender” rights.
At the White House ceremony where his nomination was announced, Kavanaugh praised his liberal mentor Anthony Kennedy for “securing liberty,” a bizarre claim for a judge who has been sold as a constitutional conservative. It’s the kind of statement that leads one to conclude that Kavanaugh would find “transgender rights” in the Constitution as well and that Obama’s “Permanent Revolution” will continue.
