Flake Opens Up Another Line of Attack On Kavanaugh: ‘Sharp and Partisan’

Published

on

Outgoing Arizona senator Jeff Flake is premiering a new focus in his criticism of Brett Kavanaugh, attacking President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee for being “partisan.”

Flake sparked the FBI investigation into Kavanaugh’s alleged encounter with Christine Blasey Ford, the existence of which has not been supported by any concrete evidence. Flake’s call for the probe, legitimized by the fact that he could potentially sway the confirmation vote, came after he was publicly confronted in a Capitol elevator by two women, including the co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy, a George Soros-financed organization.

Flake said on Sixty Minutes that he could never have pulled off the stall tactic if he was running for re-election. Flake quit his bid for re-election in 2018 after voters in Arizona turned on Flake for his refusal to consistently support President Trump.

Interesting timing.

Published

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
