Kavanaugh is Nothing But a Mob Lawyer and the Mob is Coming for You: An Open Letter to Soccer Moms

Kavanaugh is a Mob Lawyer...and the criminal, corrupt Republican Party is proudly trying to appoint him to the Supreme Court for life so that they and their wealthy donors can Get Out of Jail Free for all their many crimes.

Remember how bent out of shape the GOP was when W. tried to appoint his own Harriet Meyers to the SCOTUS so that he could be assured of at least one vote in his favor should the worst happen (to him, not the country)? Kavanaugh is Trump's Harriet Meyers. The litmus test was almost certainly "Can I count on you to protect me if I ever have a case before the court?" And Kavanaugh's answer was probably something like "I will always be faithful to you, Padrone. May I kiss your ring now?"

Kavanaugh is like Nixon appointing John Mitchell to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh is like Al Pacino being appointed to the SCOTUS by Marlon Brando. Under Kavanaugh the Rule of Law will be replaced by the Rule of the Lawless.

Rank and file Republicans who find Latino immigrants scary should consider what it means for them when the highest court in the land is in the pocket of organized crime. It means that if Sheldon Adelson wants to build a casino in your wealthy, waterfront enclave, he will pay politicians to "eminent domain" your house---and the courts will let him. It means that if the Mob wants to shut down drug rehab programs and have users sent to for profit prisons instead where they can be recruited to become drug dealers, your teenager will face years in jail---and a very bleak future---when he is caught experimenting with drugs. It means that if you try to blow the whistle on your company for dumping carcinogens into the local water supply, you will find yourself out of work and unemployable. It means that if your husband's boss embezzles your husband's retirement fund, you had better get used to eating cat food. It means if the oil industry wants the US military to invade another country, your son--and maybe even your daughter--will be drafted and sent off to die. Assuming that your daughter has not already died from a botched back alley abortion---or been sent to jail for trying to terminate her own pregnancy with mail order methotrexate.

Soccer moms beware. Kavanaugh is not going to make your world safer. Kavanaugh is going to empower criminals. And the criminals are not going to target Latino immigrants---Latino immigrants do not have anything worth stealing. The organized criminals that Kavanaugh represents are going to target Americans with enough money to make them worthy targets but not enough money to buy protection--the upper middle class.

It Will Not Take 67 Senators to Take Down Kavanaugh. Here Is Why

Everyone seems to assume that Supreme Court Justices have the same immunity from criminal prosecution that the POTUS has. And that they keep that immunity for life. And therefore, the only way they can be punished for their crimes is if 67 members of the US Senate agree that they should be punished for their crimes.

However, a Supreme Court Justice is not exempt from criminal prosecution. And it is a crime to lie to Congress--a crime that can get one jail time. Kavanaugh has lied to Congress. That much is fairly certain. The moment that the DOJ is no longer controlled by the Russian Mob, the attorney general can prosecute him. For perjury. For conspiracy to hack and distribute stolen e-mails. Hell, for all we know Mueller has dirt on him and is waiting for him to land in a position of power before making his first move--the more a potential defendant has to lose the more willing he will be to rat out his co-conspirators.

The GOP is taking a huge chance trying to force someone as dirty as Kavanaugh down America's throat. They would be smarter to look for some squeaky clean conservative jurist with no political ties. And Kavanaugh is a fool if he thinks that once he gets on the Court his life will be easy. On the contrary, he will have a great big "Prosecute me" sign on his back.

Once the senate confirms him, the real fun will begin.
