Trump’s SCOTUS pick, Brett Kavanaugh, is very bad for net neutrality

Brett Kavanaugh is a better Supreme Court pick than Trump realizes

Even as he was broadly welcomed by Senate Republicans, and a handful of Democrats expressed openness to his confirmation, the hurdles for the conservative DC Circuit Court judge are taking shape.

"Now I don't know much about Kavanaugh, but I'm skeptical because his name is Brett", Colbert said during the monologue on his show Tuesday. Other senators on this list declined that invite. And so it is not the case that we would be against any nominee by this Republican president, just not the nominees that have already been vetted by The Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation to, you know - especially in these two areas that they care about, the Affordable Care Act and Roe v. Wade. Women lead most of the major Democratic resistance groups, coordinated the major anti-Trump protests and are running for office in record numbers at all levels of government.

The Affordable Care Act is "wildly popular and necessary in the reddest of states", said Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of NY, in an interview Tuesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe". How Kavanaugh responds could be a significant determining factor for Collins. The case said that religious employers did not have to provide contraceptives but had to file a form telling the government they were not doing so, but Kavanaugh argued that the requirement violated religious freedom.

Amash referred to a controversial 2015 opinion penned by Kavanaugh for U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, which found the NSA's metadata collection program "is entirely consistent with the Fourth Amendment".

Ranked by most recruiting services as a safety coming out of high school, the team stuck with Alexander at the corner spot. Webb, Teddy Williams, and William Gay , who likely very find themselves on the bubble following the pick of Beal.

But on Kavanaugh, he isn't tipping his hand early and insists he'll keep an "open mind".

Paul's potential concerns may not be to worrisome for Republicans, however - Paul has been known to voice opposition, even in the form of a filibuster, before voting with his GOP colleagues.

President Trump has nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill Justice Anthony Kennedy's seat on the Supreme Court. Sure, depending how the confirmation process develops, it's possible the nomination could affect a handful of races, but the most likely scenario will not change the overall trajectory of the November elections.

"We think there are 22 states likely to ban abortion without Roe" because of a combination of factors including existing laws and regulations on the books and the positions of the governors and state legislatures, says Amy Myrick, staff attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights, which represents abortion-rights advocates in court. "And that's the kind of leadership North Dakotans expect from their senators". "We did prepare a press release in advance because we knew that all the people on Trump's nominee list would strip protections for nearly every marginalized group in the United States for years to come". About 10 key senators - two or three Republicans and a half dozen Democrats - are facing intense pressure over their votes.

Ontario Woman Drives Stolen Vehicle for 2 Weeks Thinking It's a Rental
According to Cornwall police , after renting the vehicle , the woman drove to a local Walmart where she did some grocery shopping. The woman drove the vehicle around for two weeks, then tried to return it to the rental auto company, police say.

That insider status can help Kavanaugh win over the Washington elite and secure enough Senate votes to avoid an embarrassing loss for Trump. If President Donald Trump is around, critics will enumerate his myriad and sometimes serious faults and then outdo him. That's because, he says, the Supreme Court will ultimately determine whether health insurers will be prohibited from denying insurance to hundreds of thousands of his constituents with pre-existing conditions. "That would be binding precedent of the Court, it's been decided by the Supreme Court".

Civil asset forfeiture puts hundreds of millions of dollars into state and federal coffers every year. When he is getting things right, they are particularly distraught, given the political implications, and, in his nomination of Kavanaugh, he got a lot right.

Senate Democrats admitted it will be hard to defeat Kavanaugh with only 49 seats in their caucus, but their goal is to inflict as much political damage on the GOP as possible ahead of the November midterm elections.
