The temperament of Brett Kavanaugh has been a main topic of the television media for days, after his fiery testimony on Capitol Hill.
Of course, this argument has nothing to do with his judicial temperament…something that the judge has a long and in-depth record of for those willing to take a look. The temperament on display in that hearing is only indicative of one thing: How Brett Kavanaugh felt about being accused of such heinous acts on the national stage in a conveniently-timed accusation. That’s it.
So, it comes as no surprise to those of us paying attention to the true nature of Brett Kavanaugh that one of his first maneuver as a Supreme Court Justice would be one of the most pro-women moves in the history of the high court.
The newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has already fulfilled one of his promises.
After weeks of contentious hearings, the Senate voted to confirm the polarizing nominee Saturday evening. And Kavanaugh was already on the job Sunday morning with the court’s first-ever all-women team of law clerks by his side, The New York Times reports.
Even before sexual assault allegations rocked his confirmation process, concerns swirled around Kavanaugh’s stance on women’s right. Specifically, Democratic senators feared he would provide the court with a conservative majority that could facilitate the rolling back of Roe v. Wade. Kavanaugh tried to counter those concerns at his first round of confirmation hearings, touting how “no federal judge … has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have.” He also said he had four female law clerks ready to work for him “on a moment’s notice,” which would make him “the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all-women law clerks.”
These appointments fly in the face of the leftist view of Kavanaugh as a misogynist and alleged rapist, and will likely fall on deaf ears in the corporate media.
