His record shows he is pro-corporation, anti-people.
Brett Kavanaugh is simply an awful nominee for the Supreme Court. There is the very serious charge of his sexual abuse of a woman. The press has given extensive attention to these charges with hearings and testimonials. Justifiably so!
But what is overlooked by the corporate press and the weak, obedient Congress is the judicial record of Judge Kavanaugh. He is a corporation masquerading as a judge.
With Kavanaugh, it’s all about siding with corporations, workers, consumers, patients, motorists, the poor, minority voters, and beleaguered communities. Repeatedly, Kavanaugh’s judicial opinions put corporate interests ahead of the common good – backing the powerful against the weak, the vulnerable and the defenseless.
A meticulous report on his judicial decisions by the Alliance for Justice provides these facts:
Kavanaugh has repeatedly ruled against efforts to combat climate change and the regulation of greenhouse gases. He also repeatedly ruled against protection for clean air. He has repeatedly sided with the wealthy and the powerful over all Americans. He has fought consumer protection in the areas of automobile safety, financial services, and a free and open internet. Kavanaugh has also repeatedly ruled against workers, workplace protections and safety regulations.
In split decision cases, Judge Kavanaugh provides insight into his judicial philosophy. He has ruled 15 times against worker rights, two times for worker rights. On environmental protection, he ruled 11 times for business interests and two times for public’s interest. On consumer and regulatory cases, he ruled 18 times for businesses and four times for consumer protection interests.
He seems to love government power when it is arrayed against the people, ruling seven times for police or human rights abuses versus zero rulings for the victim.
With this extensive, factual history, it is clear that Kavanaugh is a corporate supremist to a fanatic level of protecting corporate cruelty and greed.
Giving this man an unaccountable, lifetime position on the court is unthinkable and cruel for the country that claims to be “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
