President Donald Trump’s selection of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the U. S. Supreme Court could hardly be better.  Numerous Democratic senators have already come out in opposition to Kavanaugh’s nomination, which is hardly surprising.  While the left cries about abortion rights or this or that, what it comes down to is leftists will oppose any prospective justice of the Supreme Court who believes in the Constitution.  The left prefers justices and judges who make the law, not interpret it.  These are the same loons who loudly proclaim they are the majority, they alone hold a monopoly on love and caring, all the while saying it is just fine to harass people with a different viewpoint anywhere and everywhere.  They are the same crazies who proudly refer to themselves as the “Resistance”, as if they were freedom fighters.  When you get right down to it, they don’t even believe in freedom or free speech.  They wish to impose their own vision of America on everybody else.

For those worried about abortion rights, according to the Pew Institute, only 25% of Americans believe in unrestricted rights to abortion.  Only 16% of Americans are absolutely opposed to abortion altogether.  The great majority – – – 57% of Americans – – – are somewhere in the middle, with most believing in some form of restrictions.  Neither Brett Kavanaugh nor any other Trump nominee is likely to end abortion rights.  Of course many on the left see abortions as merely part of a woman’s health care.  When Barack Obama was campaigning in 2008 and smugly intoned, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America”, the leftists in this country believed it heart and soul.  That is precisely the reason they are so unhinged now.  No president of either party has ever lost more elective offices in the history of the country than Barack Obama.  Repudiation followed repudiation at the polls.  Despite the all too often smug air of self-satisfaction these people exude, they apparently did not accurately read the tealeaves.  These people believe America desperately needs to be transformed, while most of us are happy to improve our country.

As Democrats in the Senate rage and fume to excite their respective bases in the left wing of their party, do not forget to them Judge Kavanaugh’s qualifications mean exactly nothing.  For those who are not unhinged, Judge Brett Kavanaugh is an outstanding choice to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States.  Kavanaugh sits on the most influential circuit court in the country; Kavanaugh is widely and profoundly respected by other jurists, as well as lawyers and perhaps most importantly, legal scholars.  Kavanaugh has won that respect by his own propensity for legal scholarship, having taught at some of the most prestigious law schools in the country.  Brett Kavanaugh has acknowledged his views as a human being have grown since he was a young man, which is a sure sign of both intelligence and maturity.

President Trump has picked an ideal nominee for the Supreme Court.  Of course that won’t inhibit for a moment the political theater of the left and the highly partisan Democrats in the U. S. Senate.  The left is increasingly resorting to political theater with poor results.  Shrill and hysterical voices rarely ever constitute a majority.
