By: James Maropoulakis Denney. Antonin Scalia , one of the greatest textualist/originalist Supreme Court justices, was confirmed by the Senate 98–0 on September 17, 1986.
What makes the Brett Kavanaugh nomination so different? Why are the Democrats pulling every swamp-dwelling lowlife trick in the book to stop him? Desperation!
RINO’s, Democrats and other Progressives were confident that the progressive direction of the nation was secure at the time Scalia was nominated and confirmed. Government was growing, government dependency was rising. A “brave new world”, their socialist Utopia, was beginning to emerge.
This idea was reinforced by the election and re-election of Barrack Obama. Liberty be damned, pass Obamacare, restrict the free market, bow to our enemies!
But then Donald Trump happened.
The progressive socialist dreams were threatened. The swamp was fearful. President Trump’s actions through both legislation and executive orders rolling back progressive big government schemes, reinforcing the free market, and drawing REAL red lines for our enemies threw a spear into the heart of every gutless, nanny-state socialist swamp-dweller.
Then came the nomination and confirmation of another great constitutional conservative, Neil Gorsuch. His role on the Supreme Court has and will be one of a textualist/originalist, meaning he will interpret our supreme law the way our Founders intended it to be interpreted. He will adhere to the LAW. For the foreseeable future, progressives will not be able to use the Supreme Court to enact unconstitutional laws by judicial fiat.
The swamp dwelling Progressives were quaking with fear; fear of losing their power and fear that America was returning to its classical liberal roots of liberty and morality…so Brett Kavanaugh must be stopped at any cost, by any means necessary.
Hence the desperate tactics, the vile accusations, the dishonest speeches and grandstanding.
Desperation! Desperation to stop a return to liberty, morality and market prosperity!
