Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 06, 2018

As a White House lawyer in the Bush administration, Judge Brett Kavanaugh challenged the accuracy of deeming the Supreme Court's landmark Roe v. Wade abortion rights decision to be "settled law of the land," according to a secret email obtained by The New York Times.

Kavanaugh's email, however, stated: "I am not sure that all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land at the Supreme Court level since Court can always overrule its precedent, and three current Justices on the Court would do so."

It doesn't sound so dire as the headline makes it out to be when in context.

In any case, I think it's a mistake to focus so intently on abortion and Roe.

In the end, who'll be thinking about such things when corporations are running things via the judiciary while we go through mock elections (if they even continue...) to make ourselves feel as if we still live in the USA we once knew.

Dear Conservatives,

Explain to me WHY this email was being held "Committee Confidential" and not released to the public.

What that statement means to me is that basically NOTHING is settled law as the Supreme Court can overrule ANY of it's precedents.

What does it mean to you Snippy?

Senate Republicans want Kavanaugh not for what he thinks about abortion
Senate Republicans need Kavanaugh to cover up thier crimes and squash any attempt to hold them accountable for dereliction of constitutional duty

In an effort to get the documents to the Senate with minimal delays, they were release prior to review for public dispersal. Allowing the Senators to access the documents while they were reviewed for public dispersal allowed the Senators more time to review the information there-in and make use of it during the confirmation committee hearings. The documents continue to be reviewed to allow their view by the public, as indicated by the fact that much was de-classified prior to Booker's announcement that he was going to break his oath to 'well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office'.

In short - to minimize delays and expeditiously provide the Senate with the information they had requested.

You don't even believe your own post, please don't expect the rest of us to believe such a lie. It's insulting to our intellegence.
