Trending: BREAKING: Kavanaugh Accuser May NOT Show Up to Thursday Hearing (Details)

From Breitbart:

WASHINGTON, DC – Senate Democrats are condemning Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s association with the Federalist Society, ignoring the fact that every current Supreme Court justice – including all the liberals – speak at Federalist Society events, and Justice Elena Kagan says, “I love the Federalist Society!”

The Federalist Society is America’s flagship legal organization for conservatives and libertarians, host to legal debates and scholarly forums across the nation. Founded in 1982, it is dedicated to promoting originalism: the mainstream conservative view that because federal judges are unelected – and thus unaccountable to the democratic process – the only legitimate way for them to interpret the Supreme Law of the Land in a democratic form of government is according to the Constitution’s original public meaning.

The organization was founded in 1982, and in 1985 Attorney General Ed Meese – who is a member of its board – gave a speech to the American Bar Association praising originalism as the legal policy of the Reagan administration.

Continued:

The Federalist Society now boasts almost 70,000 judges, lawyers, and law students among its members. They are found in all areas of the law, including the highest levels of government, the judiciary, academia, and major law firms.

No event better showcases the mainstream nature and the respectable stature of the Federalist Society than the annual convention it held in 2007 on its 25th anniversary. The keynote speaker was the sitting president of the United States, President George W. Bush (hardly a rightwing ideologue). Justice Antonin Scalia also gave remarks at that dinner. The speaker at the Barbara K. Olson Memorial Lecture – named in honor of the longtime Federalist Society supporter who perished in the terrorist attacks of 9/11 – was the chief justice of the United States, Chief Justice John Roberts.

Speakers at other Federalist Society conventions and events prove further its central place in American law and politics: Vice President Mike Pence, Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Mike Lee, and Sen. Tom Cotton, to name just a few.

California Sen. Kamala Harris tweeted out this deceptively edited video of Kavanaugh, via Free Beacon:

I’ve seen my share of deception and chicanery from politicians in my thankfully brief time on this earth. And sure, I expected dumb hatchet jobs and pointless grandstanding in reaction to something as big as an open Supreme Court seat. But this tweet from California Senator Kamala Harris really takes the cake.

The “they” Kavanaugh is alluding to is the pro-life Catholic Priests for Life, who sued for a religious exemption to the Affordable Care Act under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. When the case came before the Tenth Circuit, Kavanaugh dissented from the decision not to take up the case, and Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz asked during the hearing why he did so.

As the bolded section makes perfectly clear, Kavanaugh was summarizing the Priest for Life‘s position in that case, which is that the law made them complicit in the provision of birth control to their employees, contrary to Catholic teachings. Sure enough, the priest’s brief said they objected to “abortion-inducing products, contraception … sterilization, or related counseling.”

Kavanaugh will soon be voted on to the Supreme Court. It will be by a razor-thin margin, however, as seen with Justice Neil Gorsuch last year.
