After a brief FBI investigation that didn’t question any key witnesses that resulted in a confidential report with only one copy printed that was only available to senators and a few staffers and kept under lock and key, the 53 year old Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the US Supreme Court by a vote of 50 – 48 while 164 protesters were arrested.

Lisa Murkowski was going to vote no until she agreed to abstain so that Steve Daines would not have to fly back from his daughter’s wedding. Republicans Jeff Flake and Susan Collins and Democrat Joe Manchin all voted to confirm. All other Democrats voted against the purgering sexual predator.

Issues important to the American Family Association, such as sanctity of life and religious freedom, are taking on an even greater importance in our culture, and how the Supreme Court rules in these matters will affect every American for decades to come.”
