To be a quality Supreme Court justice in this day and age of nonstop political activism, one must be as focused as a hawk, capable of ignoring the chants and grievances of those who demand cases be judged through the lens of emotion versus the lens of constitutional law.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, whom President Donald Trump nominated to the court last month, may just be one such individual. The proof lies in how Kavanaugh handled himself as an unhinged liberal activist pestered him with questions as he arrived for a meeting last week.
Kavanaugh just strolled right by the protester, acting as if she didn’t even exist. While such behavior would normally be considered rude, in this case it was the right course of action. Why? Because the activist’s questions were inane.
“Judge Kavanaugh, will you protect our healthcare?” she kept repeating like a broken record. “Why did you rule against coverage?”
As a current circuit judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, it’s not Kavanaugh’s job to protect the activist’s healthcare. It’s his job to interpret the law. The same would apply were he to be confirmed to the Supreme Court, as noted by social media users:
A judge follows the laws he does not make promises or engage in political speak with protesters trying to force their opinions upon him!! he was certainly right not to talk to these left wing wackos!!

Judges don’t legislate (unless they’re Liberal). They rule based on the Constitution. Most are appointed, not elected, and generally don’t hold press conferences with citizens?
If you’re looking for an elected official routinely ignoring citizen constituents, find a Democrat.

It is not a judge’s job to “protect your health care.”
Actually, it’s not government’s job at all.

you really don’t seem to know the job of a judge. hint, its not to protect our healthcare in some abstract sense. FFS the entire country could benefit from civics 101.

His job, if confirmed, is literally to protect the Constitution. Not to provide you with the things you’d like to have.
What’s the point of asking him such an asinine question in the first place?
He’s not your daddy. Chuck Schumer is.

Stop referring to the slaughter of millions of unborn lives as “healthcare”. There are 2 reasons Planned Parenthood supports abortion. 1. to regulate the populus of minories so the superior remains dominant. 2. They make millions from selling the parts.

Jesse Hayes’ point was an astute one. While the activist was kvetching about healthcare, her true concern was likely abortion. Liberals are deathly afraid that the installation of another originalist judge on the Supreme Court might lead to the repeal of Roe v. Wade.
While the chances of the Supreme Court ever actually voting to repeal Row v. Wade are slim, it should be noted that it would be legally acceptable for Kavanaugh to opt for its repeal. The reason is simple: There’s no right to abortion outlined in the U.S. Constitution.
An annoying, yapping troll acted like #WhinyJimAcosta and he rightfully ignored her harassment. And btw she wasn’t remotely interested in “healthcare.” She was pimping abortion. Now we love Kavanaugh. #IgnoreTheLibs https://t.co/vXyg3ofUlA

But this doesn’t mean abortion would disappear outright were Roe v. Wade repealed. According to conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, the issue of abortion would simply be relegated to the individual states. And therein lies the reason for liberals’ fear over Kavanaugh — because they know that most states would vote against abortion.
“In the end, the Democrats’ obsession with the Supreme Court says more about them than about the role of the court,” Shapiro explained. “It says that they don’t believe their policies are popular enough to win the country over at the electoral level. If the judiciary should be returned to its role of ruling by judgment rather than will, the will of the people might be heard once again — and it wouldn’t be friendly to Democrats. Democrats know it. Hence the panic.”
Hence the never-ending panic, to be exact. The irony is that liberals’ panicked behavior — and, more specifically, Kavanaugh’s reaction to it — is also serving to make conservatives like him even more.
OMG He literally ignored them??
Can we skip the hearings and just confirm this guy already? https://t.co/hVtssrc3rL
