Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Announcement Set for 9PM
AP Says It's Brett Kavanaugh

Hatch has said it's not Amy Coney Barrett, and on Martha McCallum's show, he confirmed he wasn't just speculating, and that he knew who the nominee actually was.

Disappointing. A lot of enthusiasm has grown for Barrett.

Update: I've heard it's either Kavanaugh or Hardiman.

Update: AP says it's Kavanaugh.

It's Kavanaugh.

Or that Cuba is a nation that shows that socialism works (per the guy on Watters' Saturday), and yet, it's not international in scope.

All the socialists do is prove Mussolini and Gentile correct in their advocacy of Socialism.

61 I don't get the calculus here. Nominating a woman to replace Kennedy would put the Dems in much more of a bind (wouldn't rule out their opposing her at every turn, of course, just make it harder on them).

He could be saving Barrett to replace Ginsburg, I guess, but there's no guarantee they won't manage to keep her corpse animated until 2024. Doesn't make sense.

----------------------

There's another possibility...

The biography of Justice Byron White that I own mentions that at one point in White's career on the Supreme Court, the mental faculties of one of the justices started to deteriorate to the point where the other justices quietly discussed having one member of the court vote opposite whatever that justice voted just to invalidate his vote (incidentally, White was opposed to the idea).

Can't remember which justice it was off the top of my head. And fortunately, things didn't go that far. The justice in question apparently decided to retire at the end of that term.

391 Kavanaugh, 53, grew up in Washington and is the favorite of many conservative lawyers here. He went to Yale Law School and clerked at the Supreme Court for Kennedy alongside Neil M. Gorsuch, who joined the court last year as Trump's first appointment. Kavanaugh was a top deputy to independent counsel Kenneth Starr in the long investigation of President Clinton, and he drafted the Starr Report that led to Clinton's impeachment. He also joined the legal team that represented George W. Bush in the fight over the recount in the 2000 presidential election.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued its opinion in Heller v. District of Columbia -- known as "Heller II." This case is a challenge to the onerous registration requirements, and ban on so-called assault weapons and high capacity magazines, which DC adopted after the District Government lost the Heller I case in the Supreme Court.

Unfortunately, plaintiff Heller asked the Court to use "strict scrutiny" to strike down the D.C. regulations. The District of Columbia argued against this standard, believing that the Court should be more deferential to its efforts to curb violence.

Predictably, the Court of Appeals rejected Heller's proposal and refused to use "strict scrutiny" -- instead using a lower barrier which would permit the DC government to restrict people's Second Amendment rights, so long as they were "reasonably related" to an "important governmental interest."

Kavanaugh is a good and possibly great choice too. I hope. Certainly better than anyone Hillary would have put up. (I thought Roberts was a great choice too....and as AP pointed out, he's generally solid except for that one tiny little minor case. But you know how the joke goes: Ya f*ck ONE goat.....)

The courts have fabricated different levels of review which serve as balancing tests. A "strict scrutiny" test tips the scales more heavily against the government, making it harder to justify laws that would infringe upon people's liberties. Lower levels of balancing -- known as "intermediate scrutiny" or "rational basis" -- unduly give the government more leeway in restricting people's liberties.

Of course, which standard a judge uses all depends on the outcome they'd like to achieve in the end. It's the ultimate in circular reasoning.

The reality is that the Second Amendment provides us with its own level of scrutiny. As stated in GOA's amicus brief, "the Second Amendment establishes its own standard of review for courts to apply -- 'shall not be infringed.'"

Nevertheless, the Court decided 2-1 to uphold the District's restrictions on firearms ownership. It also remanded the case to the district court to gather further evidence on whether D.C.'s registration regulations are reasonable.

There is some good news, however, and it was found in Judge Kavanaugh's dissenting opinion. Although no explicit credit is given, Judge Kavanaugh's dissent largely uses the same approach put forth by GOA in its amicus curiae brief in the case -- the only amicus brief filed supporting Heller.

Kavanaugh echoes GOA's brief when he says that the Heller I case "neither requires nor permits any balancing beyond that accomplished by the Framers themselves." That's the bottom line: the Framers, in the Second Amendment, completely rejected any balancing of our gun rights when they said that our God-given right to arms shall not be infringed.

GOA's amicus brief also drew from the Supreme Court's recent decisions. In neither Heller nor McDonald did the Supreme Court adopt a First Amendment balancing test (e.g., rational basis, intermediate scrutiny, or strict scrutiny) as the way to decide Second Amendment cases. Unfortunately, judges reserve to themselves the decision as to whether to use "strict scrutiny" or some other test -- usually based on whether they want the plaintiff or defendant to win. There are no Second Amendment principles at work -- just the personal feelings of the judges.

But Judge Kavanaugh was able to think outside the box of plaintiff Heller and defendant District of Columbia -- and rejected both intermediate and strict scrutiny -- which was exactly what GOA's brief had urged the Court of Appeals to do!

In his opinion, Judge Kavanaugh wrote that "in my view, Heller and McDonald leave little doubt that courts are to assess gun bans and regulations based on text, history, and tradition, not by a balancing test such as strict or intermediate scrutiny." (Emphasis added.)

Criticizing the majority opinion as reverting back to the "familiar" standards of scrutiny, Judge Kavanaugh even cited some of the same authorities that GOA did. For example, in oral argument of the Heller I case, Chief Justice Roberts noted that "none of" the standards of scrutiny "appear in the Constitution ... these standards that apply in the First Amendment just kind of developed over the years as sort of baggage that the First Amendment picked up." This obscure reference was in the GOA brief, and then used by Judge Kavanaugh.

Judge Kavanaugh even set the record straight about the gun-grabbers' label of AR-15's as assault weapons, calling it "rhetorical," and pointing out that "if a gun is effective for 'offense,' it might ... also be effective for 'defense.'"

Judge Kavanaugh's opinion is the first we have seen since the Supreme Court's decisions in Heller and McDonald that unambiguously reject any and all of the "interest balancing tests" in deciding Second Amendment challenges.

Should the Judge Kavanaugh position be reinforced by the Supreme Court, it will mean great strides towards returning the Second Amendment to the original meaning it had when adopted, where "some types of 'arms' are protected absolutely," and where mere judges are not given the power to decide "whether the right is really worth insisting on."

I think it's more about who he can get through the Senate. With McCain AWOL and a Collins no, Barrett wouldn't have the votes. Trump could have gambled and put her up anyway, watch her get turned down, wait for the new Senate after the election, and if the GOP picks up some extra seats, get her through then.

But, not only would that be a gamble, but SCOTUS starts hearing new cases in October. If we don't have someone in place by then, then some cases will be lost or at best, delayed.

605 Should the Judge Kavanaugh position be reinforced by the Supreme Court,
it will mean great strides towards returning the Second Amendment to the
original meaning it had when adopted, where "some types of 'arms' are
protected absolutely," and where mere judges are not given the power to
decide "whether the right is really worth insisting on.

641 Yeesh, you guys would be disappointed by the Second Coming. He's excellent on 2A and seems to be reasonably close to an originalist. Let's give him a shot before we declare him to be Souter 2.0. Plus he might be as conservative as we can get given the present composition of the Senate.

I'm pretty sure RBG is not long for this world so, assuming 2 or 3 seats picked up in November, Barrett can be the replacement there and we can have the Big Fight. The Donald chose his battle and probably chose it well.

663 One study "derived ideology scores for the D.C. Circuit judges based on lawyers' (who practiced before these judges) perceptions of the judges' political preferences," with Kavanaugh ranked as the fifth (out of 11) most conservative judge on the court.

741 In 2015, Kavanaugh found that those directly regulated by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) could challenge the constitutionality of its design. In October 2016, Kavanaugh wrote for a divided panel finding that the CFPB's design was unconstitutional, and made the CFPB Director removable by the President of the United States.

Long-term, replacing Thomas with a young judge would basically mean that the right flank of the court is in place for the next twenty years: Gorsuch, Alito, Thomas' Replacement, Kavanaugh, Roberts. Not perfect, but my concern is if Trump were to lose in 2020, or if RBG were to hold on until 2025 and a Dem President.

745 Jonah Goldberg has already said he isn't a NeverTrumper.

So he has apologised for this in 'Suicide Of The West':

And it explains why many conservatives have changed many longstanding positions to accommodate President Trump. Trump is in the tribe. Indeed, he's created his own tribe, in which he's a symbol, a totem, an avatar of the tribal us.

This excerpt - 'pericope', as my particular tribe would put it - doesn't talk about our support of Candidate Trump in 2016, who admittedly was just talk at that point. This pericope talks about our support of *President* Trump, who was enacting actual policy.

If only conservatives who were elected over the past 50 years into congress and the White House actually believed that and acted accordingly, we wouldn't be in this current position.

The conservative movement has always been a globalist movement. Globalism is antithetical to the Constitution and our Founders intent, which is America and Americans First.

Also that federalist article you linked comes from the CATO institute which is Koch Brothers propagnada, they along with the CoC didn't want Triple A. So the conservative Mockingbird media has obviously received new marching orders.

I think Thomas may eventually retire, and will be paying attention to make sure Trump is Pres and there are enough R Senators to vote for his successor.

But I see it in 2020, or if Trump looks to be re-elected like I am guessing at this point, 2022.

And by then, at least one more squishy will retire. So that would be a solid 6-3 for a long time.
