WASHINGTON – Brett Kavanaugh cannot be confirmed to the Supreme Court because he will, US Senator Dick Durbin said Wednesday, "swing the Supreme Court to the far right."

Kavanaugh will be a "reliable ally" for big business, for polluters, for the gun lobby and those who would deny women reproductive freedom, he said.

  1. How Idiotic and pathetic of Durbin! So all nominees to the Supreme Court are fine and dandy when they support a left-leaning agenda and are able to devise ways to find something in the Constitution that will permit them to establish laws supportive of the liberal agenda. As was said at the hearing, you have to win elections to have the right to pick judges. It’s as though the judges chosen by Obama weren’t all certified liberal who consistently vote in accordance to their political philosophy.

  2. But yet it was okay to put Kagan and Soytamayor (I have so little respect for her that I will not even try to spell her name correctly) on the court, Kagan a known political activist refused to recuse herself in the Obama care case. And the libs did not fight Roberts, everyone knew he was a squish liberal. And now Kavanaugh who apparently thinks abortion is now enshrined and seems squishy too.
    The left always belly aches. Face it, up until Obama Bush 43 was he best President the liberals had since FDR. And yet they fought him tooth and nail.
    My view, this makes they court moderate. You will never ever be able to trust Roberts or likely Kavanaugh.

  3. What an outrageous comment by despicable Dick! The left is the party of violence, hate and intolerance who can’t stand to have a supreme court justice who honors and respects the original intent and meaning of the constitution.
    The left is afraid KAVANAUGH won’t respect the judicial tyranny of past supreme court justices, they think liberal judicial tyrants should be able to legislate from the bench.

  4. Its baloney to call unborn baby murdering reproductive freedom. Using birth control or keeping your panties on is reproductive freedom.
    Despicable Dick is a hypocrite. Libturds like despicable Dick who supports gun bans are anti-2nd amendment freedom stealing dictators. Yet this same liberal trash also supports the murder of 60 million unborn and some born babies since 1973. The libturd hypocrites set the example of murdering 60 million babies since 1973 for the children to learn murder is a problem-solving tool. Then the hypocritical dirtbags whine about gun violence and blame the guns instead of their failure to set a good example for children by valuing human life. The Commiecrats teach human life has no value and then feign surprise when Chicago has 100’s of murders. Abortion and democrats like Durbin are deserving of our hatred for causing people to not value human life. Abortion is man’s inhumanity to man but scumbag democrats lie and call it reproductive rights! Of course they don’t allow the unborn baby a “right” to life, every sane person knows life begins at conception.

  5. Durbin: The downstate Illinois STATE Senator who, when in that office, used a “pro-life” stance to get elected to the
    United States Senate then, once in D.C. turned his coat to be “pro-choice.”
    When referring to Dickie, does the term “untrustworthy, duplicitous bastard” mean anything?

  6. I hope that, in 2020, Durbin will retire, Congressman Roskam will run for the Senate, and State Rep. Ives will run for Roskam’s House seat. I emailed Roskam and Ives and told them my suggestions. I hope others will do that.

  7. The left has sunk to the lowest level yet, with the flagrant disrespect for the senate rules in hearings and the applauding of lawless protesters. It is fascinating to watch how unprincipled they are and how quick they can turn on an issue, for instance, Sen Richard Blumenthal (who forgot that he did serve in Vietnam) and his questioning of Judge Kavanaugh. He was upset that the 17 year old girl who illegally crossed into the country and wanted a tax payer funded abortion, was denied a timely abortion last year. He stated that the later the abortion the more potential for harm to the mother (never mind more ghoulish). Here, the cheerleader for late term abortions, is decrying abortions performed late. The left has no principles.

  8. You’re wrong. Consent to sex is not consent to pregnancy. Consent to a pregnancy is not consent to an ongoing pregnancy. Consent must be ongoing for it to be genuine.
    Not all women get to consent to sex.
    Abusers often sabotage birth control.
    No woman should be forced to go without chemotherapy because she is pregnant.
    No woman should be forced by the state to carry to term a fetus with a birth defect incompatible with life. (Google cyclopia at your own risk.)
    No woman should be forced to use her body in a way she does not consent to.

  9. Why doesn’t the unborn baby get to use it’s body the way it wants to?
    Every woman knows true sex, not pervert homosexual sex can cause pregnancy. So when a woman consents, she also consents to the fact she may get pregnant.
    It sickens me to know people like you who try to justify the murder of an unborn baby. Abortion is man’s inhumanity to man but democrats lie and call it reproductive freedom! Of course they don’t allow the unborn baby a “freedom” or “right” to life, every sane person knows life begins at conception.
    I know a woman who was conceived by a rape. She grew up to be one of the finest people I know.
    An unborn baby with a tiny heart has more heart that you do…. Adolph Hitler’s Nazi Party liked to rationalize abortion too.
