Yale Alumni and Staff Hysterically Meltdown Over Kavanaugh…The Reason Why is Absurd

Published

It’s crazy to think that as we sit in the freest and prosperous nation on earth, as the normal functions of our republic tick away as they were designed to do, some of the most privileged and wealthy people are acting like they’re staring down the barrel of totalitarianism because Trump. 

In Nigeria, Christians are being brutally slaughtered. In the Middle East, entire regions are destabilized and terrorized by Islamist extremists. In Russia, it’s illegal to display pro-LGBT propaganda. Even in the UK, once a beacon of light for civil rights and liberty, free speech becomes more limited by the day.

And yet, because our lawfully elected President appointed a Constitutional originalist to the Supreme Court, somehow millions of people are going to die.

You know how parents tell their kids to be grateful for the food they have because there are children starving in Africa? I feel like every leftist needs to have the grown-up version of that lecture right about now, especially the group of adults who penned an outrageous open letter regarding Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court this week.

The Daily Wire’s Paul Bois has the story:

Yale Law School had the temerity to publish a press release praising Brett Kavanaugh for his career accomplishments, which then prompted a furious response from the school’s alumni.

According to HuffPo, “as of Tuesday night, more than 200 students, staff members and alumni of Yale Law School signed an open letter calling for the institution to rescind its apparent support of Kavanaugh.”

Addressed to the law school’s leadership and Dean Heather Gerken, the letter said that Kavanaugh’s “emergency” SCOTUS nomination puts American democracy in danger.

“The press release’s focus on the nominee’s professionalism, pedigree, and service to Yale Law School obscures the true stakes of his nomination and raises a disturbing question,” the letter reads. “Is there nothing more important to Yale Law School than its proximity to power and prestige?”

The letter goes on to complain about Kavanaugh’s stance towards indictment of a sitting President which troubles them considering they’re some of the millions of leftists positively convinced that Trump was involved in Russian meddling despite the blatant lack of evidence to him having done any such thing.

But their hysterics reach fever pitch as the letter goes on:

Some of Kavanaugh’s past decisions that the letter takes issue with are those pertaining to abortion and religious liberty, which give them “grave concern that he will consistently prioritize the beliefs of third-parties over the oppressed.”

The letter presses Yale Law School to find some “moral courage” and rescind its support for Kavanaugh, accusing the leaders of exploiting his nomination for future prestige. If the school does not condemn Kavanaugh, the letter hilariously claims that “people will die,” even though the authors clearly support abortion.

“Perhaps you, as an institution and as individuals, will benefit less from Judge Kavanaugh’s ascendent power if you withhold your support,” the letter concludes. “But people will die if he is confirmed. We hope you agree your sacrifice would be worth it.”

I can’t figure out if this is completely hilarious or bitterly ironic, considering that, on the chance that Kavanaugh would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade (every facet of which is entirely hypothetical), people will die…as though lives are saved by the murder of unborn children?

How can a group of such highly educated people fail so completely at basic logic?

Pence v. Trump 2024? Former Veep Leaves the Door Open

WHOA!

Published

on

There has been an incredible amount of speculation as to whether or not Donald Trump will be again running for President in 2024, and there are a number of factors still at play that could create seismic shifts in the race to come.

For instance, if Trump’s former Vice President Mike Pence were to decide to run against him in 2024’s primary…

Mike Pence is not ruling out the possibility of going head-to-head with his old boss Donald Trump in a 2024 Republican presidential primary, a new report suggested on Monday.

‘We’ll go where we’re called,’ Pence told the New York Times when asked about the possible head-to-head.

‘That’s the way Karen and I have always approached these things.’

Trump was not thrilled with the idea.

Meanwhile Trump, despite not formally declaring a 2024 bid yet, has eyes on the competition – including Pence.

In a statement to DailyMail.com, his spokesman slammed his old deputy as ‘desperate’ and mocked him for trying to ‘chase’ his ‘lost relevance’ amid the former running mates’ latest divide over backing separate candidates in the Peach State’s gubernatorial election.

Former President Trump is said to be waiting until after the 2022 midterms to make an official announcement regarding 2024, but there have been plenty of hints regarding his potential campaign – the latest of which came from former First Lady Melania Trump.

Verdict Reached in First Russian War Crimes Trial

This is just the first of many, certainly.

Published

on

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been a brutal one, and increasingly so as the Kremlin’s soldiers find themselves in more and more trouble of their own making.

As the war grows ever more impossible for Russia to win, the troops sent into Ukraine have been committing a series of worsening atrocities.  It’s terrorism at the least, (and very likely a full-fledge genocide), and it belies just how poorly things are going for Russia.

Now, in the first war crimes trial of the conflict, a verdict has been reached.

In the first of what could be a multitude of war crimes trials held by Ukraine, Russian Sgt. Vadim Shishimarin, 21, was sentenced for the killing of a 62-year-old man who was shot in the head in a village in the northeastern Sumy region in the opening days of the war.

Shishimarin, a member of a tank unit, had claimed he was following orders, and he apologized to the man’s widow in court.

His Ukraine-appointed defense attorney, Victor Ovsyanikov, argued his client had been unprepared for the “violent military confrontation” and mass casualties that Russian troops encountered when they invaded. He said he would appeal.

There was no doubt about the court’s legitimacy, either.

Ukrainian civil liberties advocate Volodymyr Yavorskyy said it was “an extremely harsh sentence for one murder during the war.” But Aarif Abraham, a British-based human rights lawyer, said the trial was conducted “with what appears to be full and fair due process,” including access to an attorney.

Given the sheer amount of heinous deeds the world has witnessed in Ukraine, there is no doubt that more war crimes trials will be coming.
