After a 50-year siege, the great strategic fortress of liberalism has fallen. With the elevation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court seems secure for constitutionalism — perhaps for decades.

The shrieks from the gallery of the Senate chamber as the vote came in on Saturday, and the sight of that bawling mob clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court as the new justice took his oath, confirm it.

The Democratic Party has sustained a historic defeat.

And the triumph is President Trump’s.

To unite the party whose nomination he had won, Donald Trump pledged to select his high court nominees from lists prepared by such judicial conservatives as the Federalist Society. He kept his word and, in the battle for Kavanaugh, he led from the front, even mocking the credibility of the primary accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

Trump has achieved what every GOP president has hoped to do since the summer of ’68, when a small group of GOP senators, led by Bob Griffin of Michigan, frustrated and then foiled a LBJ-Earl Warren plot to elevate LBJ crony Abe Fortas to chief justice in order to keep a future President Nixon from naming Warren’s successor.

Sharing the honors with Trump is Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Throughout 2016, McConnell took heat for refusing to hold a hearing on Barack Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, to fill the chair of Justice Antonin Scalia, who had died earlier that year.

In 2017, McConnell used Harry Reid’s “nuclear option” to end filibusters for Supreme Court nominations, and then got Judge Neil Gorsuch confirmed 54-45.

Last week, in one of the closest and most brutal court battles in Senate history, McConnell kept his troops united, losing only Sen. Lisa Murkowski, to put Kavanaugh on the court by 50-48. McConnell will enter the history books as the Senate architect of the recapture of the Supreme Court for constitutionalism.

This was a huge victory for conservatism and for the Republican Party. And the presence on the court of octogenarian liberals Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer, both appointed by Bill Clinton, suggests that McConnell may have an opportunity to ensure the endurance of his great achievement.

The ferocity and ugliness of the attacks on Kavanaugh united Republicans to stand as one against what a savage Senate minority was trying to do to kill the nomination. And at battle’s end, the GOP is more energized than it has been all year for this fall’s election.

How united is the GOP? Conservatives are hailing the contributions of Sens. Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham and Susan Collins, who delivered a masterful summation of the Kavanaugh case Saturday afternoon.

For the Democratic Party, the Kavanaugh battle was the Little Bighorn, as seen from General Custer’s point of view.

Unable to derail the judge during the regular confirmation process, they lay in the weeds until it was over, and then sandbagged the judge by leaking to The Washington Post a confidential letter Dr. Ford did not want released.

They thus forced a public hearing of charges of attempted rape against a nominee, demanded the FBI investigate all charges of sexual misconduct when Kavanaugh was a teenager, and ended up losing anyway.

Then the Dems watched protesters dishonor the Senate in which they serve by screaming from the gallery. It was among the lowest moments in the modern history of the Senate, and it was the Democratic minority that took it down to that depth.

Understandably, they are a bitter lot today.

ORDER IT NOW

And the #MeToo movement has been set back. For many of its champions were, in Kavanaugh’s case, demanding a suspension of the principle of “innocent until proven guilty,” and calling for the judge’s rejection in disgrace, based solely on their belief in a wholly uncorroborated 36-year-old story.

So where are we going now?

While Republicans are united and celebrating a great victory, the left and its media auxiliary are seething with rage and doubly determined to deliver payback in the elections four weeks away, where Democrats could pick up the two dozen seats needed to recapture the House.

Should they do so, however, they will face two years of frustration and failure. For the enactment of any major element of their liberal agenda — a $15 minimum wage, “Medicare-for-all” — would die in a Republican Senate, or in the Oval Office where it would face an inevitable veto by Trump.

So, what does 2019 look like, if Democrats capture the House?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi. A House Judiciary Committee headed by New York’s Jerrold Nadler who is already howling for impeachment hearings on both Kavanaugh and Trump.

And, by spring, a host of presidential candidates, none of whom looks terribly formidable, led by Cory (“I am Spartacus”) Booker, trooping through Iowa and New Hampshire, trashing President Trump (and each other), and offering themselves as the answer to America’s problems.

Bring it on!

Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of a new book, “Nixon’s White House Wars: The Battles That Made and Broke a President and Divided America Forever.”

  2. This will be a Pyrrhic victory. Now that the left no longer controls the court, they will try to de-legitimize it, and with near total control of the media, they will almost surely succeed. Prepare to hear all of the (very cogent) arguments made by conversations over the years about the proper limitations of its power repeated ad nauseam on every channel, and prepare to read about the horrors of court’s overreach in every newspaper.

    Did you think the same when Roberts got to court? Did you change your mind when his vote got us same sex marriage?

  5. Mr. Buchanan, you forgot the “treacherous” work of porn lawyer Michael Avenatti who offered the straw that broke the camel’s back by presenting such an abysmal “witness” such as Julie Swetnick. Ms. Ramirez’ alleged allegations also came down to nothing. Even the so-called Me too movement suffered a big blow. They turned a fundamental democratic principle upside down: The accused is innocent until proven guilty. They insisted instead that the accuser is right because she is a woman!

    I watched the whole confirmation circus on CNN. When Dr. Ford started talking my first thought was; this entire testimony is a charade initiated by the Dems. As a journalist, I was appalled by the CNN “colleagues.” During the recesses, they held tribunals that were 95 percent staffed by anti-Trumpets. Fairness looks different.

    For me, the Democratic Party and the Me too movement lost much of its credibility. To regain it, they have to get rid of the demons of the Clinton’s and their ilk. Anyone who is acquainted with the history of the Clinton’s knows that they belong to the most politically corrupt politicians in the US.

    You’re thinking of Justice Kennedy, another Republican choice for whom young Mr. Kavanaugh clerked before helping President Cheney with the Patriot Act to earn his first robe on the Swampville Circuit. Chief Justice Roberts was the one who nailed down Big Sickness for the pharmaceutical and insurance industries.

    Like the “federal” elections held every November in even-numbered years and the 5-4 decrees of the Court, these nailbiting confirmation hearings are another part of the show that keeps people gulled into accepting that so many things in life are to be run by people in Washington. Mr. Buchanan for years has been proclaiming each The Most Important Ever.

    I’m still inclined to the notion that the Constitution was intended, at least by some of its authors and supporters, to create a limited national government. But even by the time of Marbury, those entrusted with the powers have arrogated the authority to redefine them. In my lifetime, the Court exists to deal with hot potato social issues in lieu of the invertebrate Congress, to forebear (along with the invertebrate Congress) the warmongering and other “foreign policy” waged under auspices of the President, and to dignify the Establishment’s shepherding and fleecing of the people.

    Why should a robed, unelected politician be redefining marriage? Entrusted to enforce the Constitutional limitations on the others? Sure, questions like these are posed from time to time in a dissenting Justice’s opinion, but that ends the discussion other than in the context of replacing old Justice X with middle-aged Justice Y, as exemplified in this cliche’ column from Mr. Buchanan. Those of us outside the Beltway are told to tune in and root Red. And there are pom pom shakers and color commentators just like him for Team Blue.

    It was a costly victory, but not a Pyrrhic one. The Left will no doubt raise the decibel and octave levels, but if they incur a richly-deserved defeat a month from now, they won’t even make it to the peanut gallery for at least the next two years. Peter Hitchens has remarked that demonstrations are actually indicators of weakness rather than power or authority (something that seems to have eluded Flake and Murkowski), however shrill and enraged that they may be. Should the Left choose to up the ante, to REALLY take it to the streets…well…as the English ditty goes: We have the Maxim Gun/And they have not.

  15. Pat, you are one of the few thinkers with real common sense.

    I’m an aging New Deal Democrat. I have not changed but my former party changed with the tenure of the immoral and ethically challenged rapist, Bill Clinton and his enabler wife. In their previous lives, both were Goldwater Republicans. They switched to the Democrat Party to win elections but they never strayed too far from teats of the the Bushes and their destructive political roots. I”m willing to bet thousands of dollars that if given a fair chance at a quiz about the Clintons, most of the young SJW’s, rabid homo’s and the poor suckers who follow them know very little about the real Clintons.

    The Democrat party today is less a party than it is a mob of homosexuals and rabid social justice warriors duped into believing they are oppressed by the extremist college courses in Social Justice. Yet, what they have offer the world is not justice. They offer chaos and anarchy as we saw with the mob of racists black and stupid white kids attacking a man who looked lost and confused, and as it turns out, rightfully frightened by the crowd of social justice terrorists from the Alt-Left.

    They all slept through the Obama disaster thinking the globalist open borders would make the world Shang Ri La instead of crime ridden, diseased, and under attack from Muslims and their twisted ides about God and Sharia Law. Look at the Imam who proclaimed yesterday they Sharia is the law of Britain and that Muslims are at war with the British government. Yet, Tommy Robinson gets jailed for pointing out their sated intentions. Messed up. We cannot let this happen in America.

    They ignore the fact that the emasculated Obama failed to fight to pick a Supreme Court Justice. Even though he was going to choose Neil Gorsuch, not a leftist, the Alt-Left no doubt would have remained silent if he had. Why? Because Obama was black. But the Alt-Left is shallow and they could not see that the oreo president was black on the outside but rich and creamy white on the inside. No doubt, Obama was more like a 1980′s Republican than he was a Democrat as I understood them to be for decades.

    The Democrat Party is gonzo, the same as Hillary and Bill Clinton’s speaking tour is destined to be.

    Don’t count your eggs before they’re hatched. There’s still a chance (albeit rather slim IMO) that Kavanaugh could turn into another Justice Souter -or more likely- wallow somewhere in the ideological middle between the now-departed Kennedy and the at times squishy voting Roberts. At a minimum, it won’t be a true “win” unless Kavanaugh turns out somewhere between Roberts on the one end and Alito and Thomas on the other.

    That may not be the most polite way but it certainly is the most colorful way to put it.

    “The media” relies on a very broad interpretation of the 1st Amendment to disseminate its (i.e., “the media’s”) propaganda.

    Narrowly, the 1st Amendment guarantees freedom of speech (from one’s lips to another’s ears) and freedom of the press (a mechanical device).

    It does not state a broad freedom such as “the right to communicate shall not be infringed.”

Instead of reducing conflict and war Trump has been belligerent in his actions toward Russia, China, Syria and Iran….risking all out war. All these things are being done to increase the wealth and power of the Deep State. For the past ten years Republican House members have been promising investigations and prosecutions of Democrats for criminal activities….not one god damn thing changed.

    Same sex marriage is basically irrelevant. Less than 10% of homosexuals co-habitate with a partner. Perhaps 10% of the general population is openly homosexual (and that’s definitely an over-estimation.).

    This means that if all homosexuals that cohabitate with a partner are married, it’s less than 1% of the population we’re talking about.

    This is a “who really cares?” situation. There’s more important things to worry about when the nation has been at war for 16 years straight, started over a bunch of lies starting with George W.

The “muh Handmaid’s Taille!!!” point and shriekers are to be expected in every such mess now, but their shtick is dull and played out.

    No, he broke his word. He did not “pledge to select his high court nominees from lists prepared by such judicial conservatives as the Federalist Society”. Instead, when campaigning he pledged to select his high court nominees from a particular list prepared, then added to, by the Federalist Society. In violation of that pledge he added Kavanaugh (and four beards) to the list after the election, thus jettisoning the list he had pledged to choose from. Was it Leonard Leo’s initiative to add Kavanaugh? Not likely. My money is on the idea that Kennedy picked his replacement. It just explains an awful lot. So, Trump didn’t perform according to the misstated pledge either.

    No, they punished the girl. But the sentiment remains. They’ll punish Booker when he runs.

    Jew who hides his comment history (because it’s anti-Christian, not anti-Jew or pro-White or pro-right) with anonymous handle also hides the context of everything he quotes.

    Which isn’t an effective game anymore, now that the goy has the internet.

    No, it’s shit. Blacks didn’t punish OJ, so there’s no reason whatsoever to use him as an example to bolster your theory that they’ll punish Booker. Stop defending your shitty example that doesn’t work, and go find one that does. If you can; your continued defense of your shitty example is implying you can’t find a better one, at this point.

    Complete nonsense. Blacks didn’t punish Nicole Brown, they just didn’t punish OJ. Find an example that works. Stop trying to substitute stubbornness for brains.

    Kavanaugh already showing his worth as a new SCOTUS judge:

    https://thehill.com/regulation/410771-supreme-court-divided-over-immigrant-detention-dispute

    On his second day on the bench, Kavanaugh said Congress would have known that DHS wouldn’t be able to immediately detain immigrants after they are released from jail or prison and noted Congress didn’t include a time limit.

    “That raises a real question for me whether we should be superimposing a time limit into the statute when Congress, at least as I read it, did not itself do so,” he said.

    Meanwhile, Gorsuck continues to suck:

    Justice Neil Gorsuch asked if a mandate to detain certain aliens ever lapses. He asked if the government could pick up someone that they’ve known about after 30 years later.

    “Is there any limit on the government’s power?” he asked.

    Maybe the question Gorsuck should’ve asked was, “Is there any limit on the Court‘s power?”
    Kavanaugh understood that the court’s job is to interpret the law, not to make it. Gorsuck doesn’t.

    “Complete nonsense. Blacks didn’t punish Nicole Brown, they just didn’t punish OJ.”

    That jury was motivated by racial hate to punish Nicole Brown Simpson…by letting her killer go. The analogy works just fine for anyone with a working brain cell. Did you miss the part about Mark Fuhrman and the N-word?

    “Stop trying to substitute stubbornness for brains.”

    Dolt. Try reading a book sometime.

    “No, it’s shit. Blacks didn’t punish OJ,”

    No, they punished the white girl, Nicole Simpson, by acquitting her killer; the entire trial was racially charged and she was a very pretty blonde girl. Why is this simple fact difficult for you to understand? Sailer himself has pointed it out.

    “Stop defending your shitty example that doesn’t work, and go find one that does. If you can; your continued defense of your shitty example is implying you can’t find a better one, at this point.”

    It works just fine. Your IQ is simply too low to make the obvious parallel, so all you can do is draw artificial distinctions when it’s the principle that matters, not he exact circumstance. Example: Muslim fanatics kill French magazine Charlie Hebdo staff over a joke; you: “hey, your Muslim joke in this same neighborhood is fine because you don’t work for a magazine.” Plus, your ego is probably a little bruised after getting exposed. You smarted off and got put down by myself and another poster. Perhaps you aren’t as smart as you think you are.

    Trump made a big mistake with Gorsuch. He’s cucking again on immigration:

    https://dailycaller.com/2018/10/10/supreme-court-aclu-immigration/

    Justice Neil Gorsuch was troubled at the prospect of detaining aliens without bail decades after their release and grew frustrated as the government’s lawyer, Zachary Tripp, evaded questions from him and Justice Stephen Breyer on this point.

    “Is there any [time] limit on the government’s power?” Gorsuch asked.

    Though Gorsuch also asked tough questions of ACLU lawyer Cecillia Wang, his exchanges with Tripp and past writings suggest his vote may be in play for the ACLU.

    Thank God for Kav, but I guess we lost the conservative advantage. Fucking Gorsuck can now be considered the new Ginsburg on immigration.

    I believe the rumours about Booker. He has the essence of faggotry surounding him. Now Obama, that homo swam in faggotry with his beloved Michael.

    Did you miss the other nine months of the trial that conclusively proved Simpson’s innocence?

    “Try reading a book sometime.”

    I recommend American Tragedy and Killing Time. Or better yet, the transcript of the trial.

    And perhaps some of that diversity of which you democrats value so much will grant you the favor of a home invasion to show you how wrong all those TV home security commercials and your delusions are.

    Constitutionalism? Which Buchanan celebrates. Really? The Constitution says Congress should decide when America goes to war, not the President. How does Kavanaugh feel about that? The Constitution says Congress shall print and issue America’s money, debt free, not a Federal Reserve owned and controlled by domestic and foreign bankers, issuing money at interest. How does Kavanaugh feel about that? Or is he just another puppet of the deep state put there to appease the most vociferous anti-abortion zealots?

    Booker is done. Put a fork in him. It’s been credibly alleged that he had an affair with a white woman and black women in Southern primary states…

    “Credibly” and “woman” clash in this sentence.

    Should the Democrats vote with their butts as they did in 2016, they may not capture it.

    Fat chance of that. The Left is pissed. Every Democrat who didn’t bother to vote in 2016 because she thought Hillary had it in the bag will be damned sure she doesn’t repeat that mistake. Every ward heeler in charge of getting out the cemetery votes and illegal alien votes will work double shifts. If the percentage turnout of registered Democrats doesn’t set a record for midterm elections this year, I’ll be very surprised.

    To regain it, they have to get rid of the demons of the Clinton’s and their ilk.

    From the Clinton years onwards, it was 8 years of lack of any moral standards or backbone while the Republic was zombified and the technological bear trap of complete surveillance and complete entertainement closed, then 8 years of perversion and destructive politicial play.

    How can the Democrats be saved? How can anyone?

    We are possibly in the period of the “last twitches of the infested host”. Maybe continuing to play politics isn’t even that important anymore.

    Thanks, El Dato, and the Federal Reserve is the most important (awful) thing that has happened in America since the Revolution. Which was fought, for one big reason, to free the colonies to issue their own money, instead of having the Bank of England’s money imposed on them. That Bank’s Charter says, “The Bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing.” Our Federal Reserve (pushed through a bribed Congress on Xmas eve in 1913–some things never change!) is that same kind of Central Bank, which creates money out of nothing and charges interest on it! In that same year the Income Tax was brought into being, to make sure American workers pay that interest!
