A Christian university in Virginia plans to send 300 students to Washington, D.C. Thursday in support of embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“Liberty University is only three hours from D.C., so we try to give our students a chance to get involved in national politics,” said Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. at Wednesday’s convocation.
The event was keynoted by Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens.
“If you want to be excused from classes tomorrow, go to Washington and counter what the Yale students are doing, [and] support Judge Kavanaugh, we’ve got 300 spots for you,” Falwell said.
Leaving the hallowed legal principle of due process – which includes the presumption of innocence – in the dust, 300 Yale Law students descended upon Washington earlier this week to protest Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Yale is Kavanaugh’s alma mater.
The Judge has been accused of sexual misconduct by three women, none of whom have provided corroborating witnesses or evidence to support their claims from decades ago.
Thursday, the first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, will testify in a Senate hearing. Ford, a leftist professor and anti-Trump activist who lives in Palo Alto, California and works as a university professor will provide her testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee after days of debate between Ford’s attorney’s and the Committee regarding forum and procedure for the questioning.
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
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.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686

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.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
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.
