“the American public has seen this charade, has seen this dishonesty by the Democrats”
While the saga around now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has ended, the left will not stop and we can expect to see more outrage in the coming days.
On the White House lawn, President Donald Trump called the whole thing a “hoax.”
Kavanaugh Hires More Black Clerks Than Ginsburg has During Her Tenure
The Daily Caller has reported that on his first day on the job, Supreme Court Justice has hire more black clerks than Ruth Bader Ginsburg has during her whole time on the court. One more thing. They’re all females:
Justice Brett Kavanaugh has hired a black law clerk for his new chambers at the U.S. Supreme Court, matching Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s record of African-American clerkship hiring during her tenure on the nation’s highest judicial tribunal.
With his first clerkship hires, Kavanaugh also set a gender composition record, an apparent attempt to buck the high court’s hiring patterns, which tend to favor white, male graduates of elite law schools.
Since joining the high court in 1993, Ginsburg has hired over 100 law clerks, just one of whom is black.
Ginsburg’s hiring practices have been criticized for decades. During her 1993 confirmation hearings, GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah asked Ginsburg if a court might reasonably conclude that a small business in a majority black city that hired 57 white employees and zero black employees over a period of years was discriminatory. Ginsburg dodged, before Hatch pointed out that was in fact her own record of clerkship hiring in her 13 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
“I will try harder, and if you confirm me for this job my attractiveness to black candidates is going to improve,” Ginsburg replied, to much laughter throughout the hearing chamber. (RELATED: Confirmed: Brett Kavanaugh Is Now A Supreme Court Justice)
Kavanaugh’s new clerks are Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy, Sara Nommensen and Kim Jackson. These hires set a record in a second respect: Kavanaugh is the first Supreme Court justice to hire an all female class of clerks.

From Fox News:
In the wake of his vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday, Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., revealed to Fox News on Sunday that his wife had received a graphic text message with a video depicting a beheading, and that someone has publicly posted the names and addresses of his family members.
Late last month, Gardner received a letter from an anonymous individual apparently in Denver, alleging that Kavanaugh had “shoved” someone up against a wall “very aggressively and sexually” during an outing in 1998 in front of four witnesses. The allegation was later deemed not to be credible.
“Every victim of abuse, assault, and violence has been through an unspeakable tragedy and we need to do a better job listening to them, ensuring support is available, and fighting to end abuse of any kind,” Gardner said in a statement prior to receiving the graphic text messages. “I hope that the partisan divide we all feel today does not hinder the people that have bravely come forward.”
Amid Kavanaugh furor & threats to mbrs, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) tells Fox that his wife received a text with a video attachment showing a gruesome beheading. Someone has has also released the names of and addresses of his family members.

Collins Explained Her Yes Vote on 60 Minutes
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) became a Republican hero on Friday after her stellar speech on the floor before she confirmed her yes vote on Kavanaugh.
She sat down with 60 minutes to explain her vote:
“I found her very compelling,” Collins said.
But then, she heard Kavanaugh’s rebuttal. She also read the FBI’s report and looked for corroborating evidence. Instead, she told Pelley, she found the opposite: No one beyond Ford had a recollection of the night in question.
“I feel very comfortable that I’ve made the right decision,” Collins said. “I could not come to another decision, based on the testimony and the evidence that I reviewed.”
How about Kavanaugh on Roe vs. Wade? She said:
“I could not vote for a judge who had demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade because it would indicate a lack of respect for precedent,” she tells Pelley in the clip above.
Collins says she questioned Kavanaugh at length about Roe v. Wade and found his response satisfactory.
“What Judge Kavanaugh told me — and he’s the first Supreme Court nominee that I’ve interviewed, out of six, who has told me this — is that he views precedent not just as a legal doctrine, but as rooted in our constitution,” Collins says.
Lentz expressed happiness over Kavanaugh’s win!
