I thought long and hard about this one, President Trump has picked Judge Brettt Kavanaugh as his Supreme court nominee. What does this mean for you and I ? well it comfirms the direction Trump want’s the court to take. Kavanaugh is a conservative federal appellate judge on the DC Circult Court of Appeals. A former clerk for out going Justice Anthony Kennedy. He investigated Bill Clinton affair with Monica Lewinsky and is said to have been the principle author of the report presented by independent counsel Kenneth Starr. He worked for George W. Bush as a campaign lawyer, and served George H. Bush as an attorney in the solicitor general’s office. He was amoung four finalists recommended by several conservative groups consulted by President Trump. The problem with adding a staunch conservative to the court is it gives a solid majority to the already conservative leaning court. Which mean laws outlawing discrimination based on color, gender, sexual orientation etc. could be challanged, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is already saying that race should not be considered in determinging college admissions, with the right people on the supreme court the city of Jackson’s 10 percent minority set aside could be in danger. Currently contractors doing work for the city must sub-contract 10 percent of their work to a minority contractor. This SCOTUS appointment has to be watched closely, and should not happen until after the mid-term elections but I’m afrade that Mitch McConnell and his boys will try to push this through while the republicans have a majority in the Senate. We have always been told that these lifetime court appointments are not to select a democrate or a republican, but there sure is whole lot of politicking going on whenever there is an opening on the court!.
