Author Tells Why Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS Confirmation Represents the Greatest Peril to the Supreme Court in a Century

*Political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson presents a devastating point by point examination of the monumental stakes involved in the confirmation fight over Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS confirmation. Hutchinson peels back the layers of Kavanaugh’s published writings, case rulings and opinions to reveal a judge who will move the SCOTUS quickly to the most extreme right-wing edge in law and public policy in a century.

Hutchinson observes, “The battle over the release of the tens of thousands of Kavanaugh documents was not just a desperate grasp at a straw by Senate Democrats to torpedo the Kavanaugh nomination. The battle for control of SCOTUS has had deep resonance among many Americans. Exit polls after the 2016 presidential election found that the overwhelming majority of voters cited picking a Supreme Court justice as either “the most important factor,” or “an important factor” in determining who they’d vote for.”

The Kavanaugh confirmation battle was just the latest in the on-going war over what and who would control the Supreme Court for years to come. The war has waged for three decades since the brutal realization that the high court justice’s decisions on civil rights, civil liberties, reproductive rights, gay and LGBT rights, corporate and executive power, and just about any and every big-ticket area of law and public policy in America has the full force of law and can reshape public policy in America for years.

“The GOP and the Democrats are painfully aware with the long-term tenures of Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas,” Hutchinson further notes, “that presidents and congresspersons come and go, but justices can sit on the bench until death if they choose.  There are no term limits on them. In the case of Kavanaugh for the Democrats things could be even worse. The ultra-conservative jurist would drastically and instantly shove the precarious and tenuous balance of the court to the right. “

Just how drastic? In The Kavanaugh Court, Hutchinson takes a laser look at his record both on and off the bench. He warns that the peril that Kavanaugh poses once on the bench is monumental.  This is not guesswork and a shrill cry of wolf. There’s a paper trail that’s a mile wide and is filled with dire warnings of what will come with a Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS. There are his hard-right rulings and opinions in appellate cases on abortion, and surveillance and wiretapping, labor, the financial industry and corporate regulations, immigrant rights, and affirmative action. They all reflected the textbook conservative stance on these issues that expand and endorse corporate and civil rights and liberties abuses.

“With allegations coming to light over this past weekend regarding Kavanaugh, The Kavanaugh Court becomes an even more vital document to read not just for an individual but for the entire nation.”

The Kavanaugh Court examines the high stakes in the fight over Roe vs. Wade, the hard right’s relentless drive to control the court, what the Democrats can do to fight the Kavanaugh nomination, and what the SCOTUS will look like with him casting the deciding 5th vote in major cases.The Kavanaugh Court also presents Kavanaugh’s own words from his major address to the American Enterprise Institute in 2017 that gives a telling glimpse into how he will rule once on the high court.   The Kavanaugh Court is a stark and frightening assessment of the long-term impact for the nation of a Kavanaugh Supreme Court.
