Ever since President Trump announced his pick for replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy to be Brett Kavanaugh, the fake news media has gone into overdrive to find anything they can possibly use against him.
The result? Brett Kavanaugh is, without a shadow of a doubt, a pretty normal dude.
And in the latest news search for finding anything to say about Kavanaugh, the AP uncovered something incredible: he preferred basketball over politics while he was a student at Yale.
*GASP* THE HORROR!
The AP wrote: “In some ways, Kavanaugh was like many Yale students of his time: a product of a high-powered East Coast prep school who majored in history, then Yale’s most popular major, and headed for law school after graduating in 1987. Interviews with more than a dozen people who knew him in college and Yale Law School draw a portrait of a serious, but not showy student and sports lover whose drive and competitiveness helped him both on the court and in the classroom.”
The Daily Wire also tackled this story, saying: “[The AP] interviewed ‘more than a dozen people’ to learn: 1) he probably would have preferred to be an NBA player, 2) he belonged to an all-male ‘senior society’ called Truth and Courage, 3) he wasn’t outspoken about his political views, and 4) he keeps in touch with his law-school housemates.”
Now, there are a few different reasons I’m talking about this. First of all, this is basically proof of the nature of today’s mainstream media. Despite what people on CNN or other fake news media might say about the MSM not being biased as Trump claims, it’s stories like these that show that’s precisely what they are. This is only one of many stories about Brett Kavanaugh that end up making the guy seem completely normal.
There was also another story about him during a baseball game doing something no one ever expected: enjoying the game.
So no one can honestly tell me the fake news media is not fake news or is not biased. The biggest reason they search so much about Kavanaugh is to look for dirt, much as they have been looking to do with Trump, and have found absolutely nothing.
That’s the biggest reason for this article. The second reason is to point out precisely how normal the MSM is making Kavanaugh look, which is the exact opposite of what they want to do.
The MSM wants to make Kavanaugh basically look like a serial killer who’s out to take away women’s “right” to kill their own children. After seeing all of these stories, the biggest adjective I can use to describe Kavanaugh is simply: normal.
As it turns out, he’s not the blood-thirsty monster the media tries to portray him as. He’s a normal dude, living a normal life, and who’s gotten one of the biggest honors one can receive in the world of judicial law and that is to be nominated for a United States Supreme Court seat.
Whenever someone goes to a baseball game, they tend to enjoy it (unless you’re a Mets fan). And in college, or even at any other point in your life, it makes sense if you would prefer to be a basketball player in the NBA than just about anything else.
I know for a fact that, while I love doing what I do, I would absolutely LOVE being a basketball player, playing for my favorite NBA team and trying to win championships, all-the-while earning millions of dollars even if I’m garbage.
People tend to have such dreams of grandeur, and the fact that the AP is saying this is 1) not news whatsoever and 2) completely expected, even for someone back in 1987. If I could be a basketball player in the late 80’s and early 90’s, I would be, even if I got destroyed by the Celtics, Lakers, Pistons or Bulls.
But there’s also a different aspect that’s not quite as obvious as the basketball one. The story also mentions that he wasn’t outspoken about his political views. That is also perfectly normal, but beyond that, it even makes sense.
Kavanaugh is not a politician. He is not running for a Senate seat or a House seat and has never run for President. He’s a lawyer. And yeah, a lot of politicians get law degrees, but Kavanaugh himself likely never saw himself running for office. What he is, in his mind, is a lawyer and a judge.
I know that politics infects pretty much every aspect of people’s lives, but it really shouldn’t. That’s what is ruining a lot of things.
For example, I far prefer watching old t.v. shows and movies than current shows, with some exceptions. Why? Because for the most part, politics play a huge role in shows today, while they were only an underlying topic rarely brought up in shows of the past.
Today, you can hardly watch a show that doesn’t feature either a gay character or couple, a transgender character, or overall someone who is adamant in shoving their Leftist views down everyone else’s throats.
Like I said, there are exceptions to this. For example, Last Man Standing. That’s a show that is heavily political, but it often pokes fun at the topic. You have both liberal characters and conservative characters who often bicker at each other, but you like them all anyway and logic often appears in everything. The liberal character is not overly Leftist to the point he will cross-dress while wearing a pink hat representing the female genitalia and shouting that the conservative character is a fascist.
But the reason it’s a good show is because, in my opinion, it depicts a more normal situation in America. Most shows don’t offer the conservative side of things. They just feature a family full of Leftists that all agree that Trump is Hitler and conservatives need to die. That’s not what America really is. We are more varied and, to borrow the Left’s term, diversified than that.
So politics have basically ruined television shows in today’s era because they use politics almost 24/7 and take themselves completely seriously. The same thing goes for just about any Hollywood movie today (again, there are exceptions) as well as video games.
This politization of everything has also gotten into practicing, implementing and enforcing the law. Circuit court judges are overextending their authority by forcing Trump to keep DACA, a highly unconstitutional EO enacted by Obama. And why? Because such judges are not judges, but political activists who disregard the laws that they don’t like.
The assumption, in the AP’s mind, is that everyone has a political belief that they employ at work. Everyone from a Starbucks employee who refuses to serve police or military personnel to even district and Supreme Court judges.
But it shouldn’t be that way. Politics shouldn’t play into absolutely everything, and clearly, it doesn’t in Kavanaugh’s job. He doesn’t make rulings based on his own beliefs, but rather on what his best interpretation of the law is. Sure, he has beliefs and views and sure, he has certain convictions that almost undoubtedly play into his rulings.
But he’s not a political activist. He’s not going to ignore the law entirely just to advance his own political agenda. And that’s the way every judge should act and is expected to act in a logical setting. There's a reason Lady Justice has a blindfold covering her eyes: a judge is supposed to be impartial. When presented with a case, he/she makes sure it’s up to the defense and prosecution to explain why they are right so that the jury can come to a verdict and the judge can make it the official ruling in the court.
When you have a judge that will 100% be against one side or the other, what you have is the opposite of justice. What you have is injustice and corruption.
From what we’ve seen and heard both from Trump and the media (when they’re not calling him a monster) is that Kavanaugh’s a perfectly normal guy with strong convictions and integrity. He will rule according to what the law says and according to his best interpretation of the law, not on what he WANTS the law to be.
Now, there can be problems, at times, with trying to use the best interpretation of the law. Naturally, interpretations are entirely subjective and people will naturally disagree on things. It’s tricky, but Kavanaugh seems to be the kind of guy to not willingly misinterpret the law and ignore what it says altogether just for his agenda’s benefit.
And given what the AP and other sources have shown about Kavanaugh, he seems like your Regular Joe with a Yale Law School degree.
A far cry from the image of the demon the Left wants to portray him as.
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
