Why Oppose Warmonger Execution Advocate Bush Operative Brett Kavanaugh

Kavanaugh opposes the right of disabled to refuse medical procedures, the rights of emmployees over employers, the rights of prisoners over warden autocracy. He oppose the Geneva Convention and international law in general. Virtually always he has ruled for the authority figure over those objecting ro repression.
1 Theft of 2000 Election
Judge Brett Kavanaugh helped Bush steal the election in which the majority of voters voted for Al Gore.
2 Violation of Clinton's Right To Privacy
Kavanaugh helped Ken Starr spend 45 million dollars violating Bill Clinton's constitutional right to privacy in his consensual sex life. Clinton was the victim of a black op (Linda Tripp of Delta Force and Lucianne Goldberg of Regnery were coconspirators) because Clinton would not invade Iraq. Starr chose Kavanaugh to write the final report in which Kavanaugh included unnecessarilly salacious details. Kavanaugh called for Clinton's impeachment.
3 Opposes Net Neutrality
Kavanaugh thinks net neutrality violates the 1st amendment.
The truth is the opposite. He is on the side of huge media companies who want to censor and slow down freedom of speech on the internet.Kavanaugh was overruled by other judges on the DC Circuit Court. He is opposed to net neutrality while the majority ruled broadband is a utility not a luxury. Because of Republicans who agree with him, huge media companies are now blocking websites, censoring content, and slowing down websites at will.
4 Kavanaugh Is Hostile To International Law Such As Geneva Convention

6 Kavanaugh Misrepresented Truth In Congressional Hearings
misrepresenting his record in congressional hearings
7 Kavanaugh Believes Guardians Have The Right To Force Medical Procedures On Clients
The Autistic Self Advocacy Netw opposes Kavanaugh In Doe ex rel. Tarlow v. D.C., Judge Kavanaugh ruled against two women who had been forced to have abortions and one woman who was forced to have eye surgery. The D.C. agency over people with developmental disabilities consented to all three procedures without discussing them with the women. Kavanaugh wrote that because the women lacked "capacity" to make their own medical decisions independently, they had no right even to be consulted
Is it inconsistent that Kavanaugh prevented an abortion forcing teen in detention to have child but ruled in favor in another case in which authorities forced abortions on women. In both cases Kavanaugh deferred to authority figures rather than individuals

8 Denied Teen Right To Abortion
While on the circuit court he voted to deny an immigrant teen in detention her right to an abortion. He violated existing law. Garza V Hargan
9. Almost Always Sides With Big Business In Lawsuits
Kavanaugh in 12 years on the Supreme Court has almost always sided with big business.
 https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2018/07/30/brett-kavanaugh-supreme-court-voice-corporations-business-column/821530002/
10. Almost Always Sides With Employers Over Employees
Yet another example of Kavanaugh's slavish ratification of earthly authority is that he has almost always sided with employers ratter than their employees.
11. A foe of Mother Earth
Many question that living beings can survive global baking without earth protecting action.
In White Stallion Energy Center LLC v EPA. Kavanaugh ruled the EPA must take money into consideration in regulating carbon emissions of power plants which cause lung cancer, acid rain, etc. He has a Trump Scott Pruitt Charles Wheeler Ryan Zinke approach to the environment and was opposed to Obama's environmental protections and to EPA right of regulation.
He wrote that the EPA had no right to limit greenhouse gas emissions
 https://www.ecowatch.com/kavanaugh-supreme-court-environment-epa-2585783500.html
12. Picked Torture Advocate John Roberts For SCOTUS
On the basis of Kavanaugh's advice, Bush picked
John Roberts, judicial serial killer and torture advocate, as his nominee.
13. Opposition To Defendants Accused Of Crimes
Kavanaugh has almost always supported wardesn and opposed defendants in criminal cases
14. Tyranny Of Vivivsecting War Invested Harvard And Yale
15. Opposed To Govt Involvement In Health Care
Kanaugh in a complicated opinion ruled against Obamacare.
16. Male Interference In Woman's Right To Choose
Brett Kavanaugh would put the cold violating hand of 5 Republican male justices as well as male legislators in states on a woman's body denying her the sovereign right to decide her own life. This is the more serious because millions or tens of millions of women have in the past died of placental abruptions, of bleeding to death, of breech births, of sepsis, of myriad causes of iatrogenic or physician error, of infections when forced to seek a nonlegal abortionist.
17. Senator Ted Kennedy's Opposition
Senator Edward M Kennedy about Brett Kavanaugh: "(He is) the youngest, least experienced and most partisan candidate in years", Kavanaugh's nomination was stalled for 3 years because of his heinous record in helping steal the people's election from Al Gore as a member of Bush's team, his unconstitutional harassment of Bill Clinton whose impeachment was fueled by those angered that he would not invade Iraq etc.
18. 911 Lies
Ashley Kavanaugh, Brett Kavanaugh's wife was personal secretary to G W Bush in the White House and like Brett Kavanugh was in the White House on Sept 11, 2001. Brett Kavanaugh is part of the coverup of the truth of the World Trade Center explosion .  http://911truth.org
19. Federalist Society Antidemocratic
Donald Trump selected Brett Kavanaugh because of the 25 judges on the rightwing Federalist list of Leonard Leo, Kavanaugh is the one who most strongly has written that no one has a right to indict a sitting president. (Perhaps Kavanaugh thinks no one should b able to impeach a president.)
20. Lawsuit Opinions 300 Of Them Re His Slavish Deference to Authorities
21. He Ruled Employers May Deny Employee Access To Birth Control
Kavanaugh has ruled that employers have the right to deny employee access to birth control.
22. Kavanaugh has ruled that the Consumer Financial Protecton Bureau was unconstitutional.
Richard Cordray who ran that bureau and forced banksters and payday lenders to obey the law and return billions to consumers is now running as a Democrat for governor of Ohio.
23. Kavanaugh Supports Judicial Murder, Serial Killing Of Prisoners
PBS reported that Judge Kavanaugh if he were to become a justice, would be in favor of the judicial muder known as execution.
24. Poor Health
Kavanaugh has a reddish complexion indicating possible cholesterol and blood pressure problems.
25. Hypocrisy
Is it not inconsistent to call oneself prolife while favoring judicial murder and illegal war?
26. Catholics On Court
Kavanaugh if confirmed would make the Court 55% Catholic John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Sam Alito, Sotomayor are all Catholic. In exchange for the silence of US Catholic bishops about illegal wars, Bush 1 and 2 gave them Catholics for the Supreme Court. Prolife did not mean antiwar or antiexecution for the male Catholics.
 https://religionnews.com/2018/07/12/why-catholics-and-jews-dominate-at-t...
27. US Supreme Court Most Powerful In World .. Antidemocratic
The Supreme Court, a recent author of a book about it said, has given more power to the justices than any other court in the world. These Republican men are not elected by the people. They as of this time are assigned to lifetime terms. This antidemocratic institution is the dead hand of the past. Who is guilty of contempt for this court? The entire world.
28. Kavanaugh Enemy Of Voting Rights
Like the 4 Republicans now on the Supreme Court, Kavanaugh is an proponent of racist gerrymandering
 https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/13/opinion/sunday/voting-rights-voter-id-kavanaugh.html
29. McConnell Denied Democrats A Vote On Obama Nomination
It is ironic that for several years on the DC Circuit Court, Brett Kavanaugh has served under Merrick Garland, Obama's nominee to the Supreme Court the vote up or down for whom was denied by Mitch McConnell and the Republicans. McConnell refused even to talk to Garland.
30 Kavanaugh On Precedent
On Kavanaugh's promise to follow precedent re Roe V Wade, Senator Schumer said that Justices Roberts and Gorsuch made similar promises as in 2018 they broke 40 years of labor law precedent.
31. An Ostrich Re Global Baking
The human population is approaching 8 billion people. Nearly all of them use paper derived from treekilling for lumber, newspapers, napkins, writing, bulldozng properties for new buildings, for cattle ranches etc. Already climate extremes caused by massive worldwide deforestation are killing people.
32. A Prolife Catholic Who Helped Bomb Pregnant Women In Iraq and Afghanistan
Kavanaugh facilitated the bombing of pregnant women... he caused abortions by bomb.

35. The Stars

Not for everyone... Gauquelin a skeptic ran several hundred thousand jobs & birthdates thru a computer and found amazing correlations. For the first time in 168 years Neptune is exactly opposite Kavanaugh's Pluto... this could mean he won't be confirmed.

36. Teller Of Falsehoods About Torture Of Detainees

39. Kavanaugh Would Be A Judicial Murderer

Kavanaugh is a nominal observant Catholic. US bishops unanimously oppose the death penalty. Pope Francis has just decreed that opposition to the death penalty is inherently a corollary of human dignity. Yet Kavanaugh chose to work for G W Bush, the most executing governor in US history, a man who sent over 150 to their deaths. In that list were included innocents, the mentally ill, the mentally challenged, citizens of Canada, Mexico and Germany illegally denied access to their consulates.

40. Torture

As Mitch McConnell withholds records on Kavanaugh history in White House, questions resurface about his role in torture.
 https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/29/us/brett-kavanaugh-signing-statements.html

41 Double Standard

Kavanaugh devised the invasive unconstitutional questions asked to Clinton after subpoena'd. Kavanaugh has one stndard of law for Democratic presidents and another for illegitimately elected Republican ones. Republican presidents he believes have no right to be subpoena'd but Clinton he worked to subpoena. Republican presidents can't be indicted, he says, but he worked on the indictment of Clinton.

43 Violates Privacy Of All Americans

Kavanaugh gave wide latitude to government in spying on Americans and collecting personal data, says AP News.

Kavanaugh believes the wealthy have more right to influence political opinion than the middle class or poor. He created the Super PAC and supports the SCOTUS decision that money is a form of speech.

'"From the notorious Starr report, to the Florida recount, to the President's secrecy and privilege claims, to post-9/11 legislative battles including the Victims Compensation Fund, to ideological judicial nomination fights, if there has been a partisan political fight that needed a very bright legal foot soldier in the last decade, Brett Kavanaugh was probably there."

On U.S. Court of Appeals, Kavanaugh Sided With Corporations 87 Percent of the Time in Split Decisions in Key Areas

Past Opinions Can Provide Insight Into a Judge's Philosophy, Predilections

WASHINGTON, D.C. - During his 12 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh decided or wrote an opinion against the public interest 87 percent of the time in split-decision cases in five key areas, including consumer, environmental and worker rights cases, Public Citizen found in a report (PDF) released today.

Kavanaugh has participated in more than 1,000 cases and written hundreds of opinions while on the court of appeals, most of which were decided by three-judge panels. A significant proportion of those cases were decided on a 3-0 basis, which often reflected consensus among judges across the political spectrum. In other cases, the judges disagreed with one another and therefore issued 2-1 decisions.

Of the 101 split-decision cases involving Kavanaugh, Public Citizen analyzed his decisions and opinions in five areas: consumer and regulatory issues and administrative law, environmental protection, worker rights, claims alleging police or human rights abuses, and antitrust. The report found that Kavanaugh has overwhelmingly reached conclusions favorable to business interests and opposed to consumers, workers, environmental protectionsand victims of human rights abuses:

In 18 of 22 cases involving consumer and regulatory issues or matters of administrative law, Kavanaugh sided with corporations against agencies, or with agencies against public-interest challengers.
In 11 of 13 environmental cases, Kavanaugh sided with corporations or states challenging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or other federal agencies for being too protective of the environment, or against environmental groups seeking stronger environmental enforcement.
In 15 of 17 cases involving worker rights, Kavanaugh sided with employers against employees or employees' unions, or with employers against the National Labor Relations Board.
In seven of seven cases involving victims suing for compensation over police or human rights abuses, Kavanaugh sided with the alleged abuser and against the victims.
In two oftwo cases, Kavanaugh sided with merging companies and against antitrust enforcement agencies

Additionally, the report found that during his tenure, Kavanaugh has:

Been inconsistent on the issue of deference to agency action;
Favored a standard benefitting corporations on the issue of standing;
Imposed high bars to citizen access to the courts, but treated corporations differently;
Opposed independent agencies; and
Been highly skeptical of civil rights claims.

"The most eye-catching conclusion from reviewing Judge Kavanaugh's opinions on the appellate court is the consistency of the outcomes compared to the inconsistency of his reasoning the overwhelming tendency to reach conclusions favorable to corporations and against the public interest," said Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen.
