The anti-Kavanaugh crackpots have tried to sink the U.S. Supreme Court associate justice once again, and once again they have failed.
Demand Justice, a far left hate-Trump group that wants to stop the president from reshaping the federal judiciary, thinks Congress ought to impeach Kavanaugh, supposedly for the “lies” he told on his way to becoming liberal Anthony Kennedy’s replacement on the the high court.
That’s not going to happen, of course.
But neither will they succeed in persuading George Mason University into breaching its contract with Kavanaugh, who will teach a course in England this summer.
Demand Justice and its division of hysterical protesters notwithstanding, Kavanaugh will not only remain a justice but also teach for GMU.
HuffPost reported that Demand Justice launched a dirty smear campaign against Kavanaugh last week with a defamatory statement that said, without saying so, Kavanaugh is guilty of the false accusations he parried during this confirmation hearings.
“The hiring of accused sexual assaulter Brett Kavanaugh at George Mason University is unacceptable and we’re calling on the university to terminate his contract immediately,” the ad says. “We’re joining Mason for Survivors GMU and demanding George Mason University Administration stand with survivors and fire Kavanaugh now. Add your name to stand with us.”

Another ad, Fox News reported, claims that “Brett Kavanaugh’s performance during his testimony in front of the Senate was a disgrace. His blatant partisan attacks and hostile behavior towards senators calls into question his ability to serve as a fair and impartial judge.”
Even worse, “his conduct undermines the legitimacy of his decisions and the entire Supreme Court. We’re calling on Congress to open an investigation into Kavanaugh right now.”
Demand Justice also wants Kavanaugh impeached. The Facebook post with that pie-in-the-sky demand links to an article in The Nation that accuses Kavanaugh, among other things, of lying to Congress.
The Nation claims that the Democrats must impeach Kavanaugh because he faces “83 ethics complaints, all inspired by his conduct at his nomination hearings.”
“This man lied to or misled Congress in 2004,” the article continued. “He lied to or misled Congress in 2006. How blind do you have to be to think that he didn’t lie to or mislead Congress in 2018?”
Even worse, “Republicans know that they’ve put an alleged attempted rapist on the Supreme Court. And they are cool with it,” which goes back to the Demand Justice claim that Kavanaugh is an “accused sexual assaulter.”
But the accusations weren’t credible.
Not one of Kavanaugh’s accusers offered a single shred of proof for their claims. Most notable was Christine Blasey Ford, a college professor who affected the look of a disheveled high-school girl with a voice to match, who accused Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her.
The prosecutor who questioned her for the Judiciary Committee concluded that Ford’s own witnesses refuted” or “failed to corroborate” her claims.
Then Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley referred three of Kavanaugh’s accusers, including lawyer Michael Avenatti, to the FBI in connection with their false claims that Kavanaugh participated in gang rapes.
Unsurprisingly, the chieftain of Demand Justice is Brian Fallon, press secretary for Hillary Clinton’s losing presidential campaign.
The loss deprived the radical Left of another eight years to appoint more subversive, anti-American, anti-Christian justices who would wreck the Constitution, which explains the creation of Demand Justice.
GMU Pres: School Will Not Renege
GMU President Ángel Cabrera wisely ignored the Nutocrats.
“I respect the views of people who disagreed with Justice Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation due to questions raised about his sexual conduct in high school,” he wrote. “But he was confirmed and is now a sitting Justice. The law school has determined that the involvement of a U.S. Supreme Court Justice contributes to making our law program uniquely valuable for our students. And I accept their judgment.”
Kavanaugh’s course will focus on the history of the U.S. Constitution, beginning with its origins in the Magna Carta and continuing with this nation’s primordial legal documents and constitutional principles.
Cabrera noted that Kavanaugh’s colleague, Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, will teach a course in Padua, Italy.
HuffPost reported that GMU “agreed to let the student advocacy group Mason 4 Survivors host a town hall discussion with administrators on April 16 to discuss sexual assault prevention.”
Cabrera will attend.
