    “an anticlimactic finale to a battle”

    Only the losers feel as though the finale to a battle is anticlimactic. The winners feel great joy and exhilaration.

    Guess we know which side the writers of this article are on.

    Congratulations to Judge Kavanaugh. I will be praying for him and his family. They are going to need it more than ever.

  • Get the advice of Justice Thomas on how to comport yourself, Justice Kavanaugh (I have to admit that you were not my first choice, but, MAN, I like saying that: JUSTICE Kavanaugh!). It’s always best to learn from a voice of experience.

    I am praising God that Judge Kavanaugh is our newest Justice. But I do not feel a winner. It’s as if we are in a war (because we are), and every attempt that President Trump or any conservative makes towards restoration brings on a new battle. This battle for Judge Kavanaugh was so painful to watch: the disparagement of most of his life, the toll such actions took on his wife and family, as well as the blind and deaf ambitions of the liberals who, without reservation, seek not to restore but to further end His morality. Please, Lord, restore us, and let Your will be done…in each of us. Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

    Congratulations to Judge Kavanaugh and Thanks be to God !
    I hope Judge Ginsburg and the rest of the liberal ones see the ugliness of the left now.
    They also charged the base of LGBT due to their vote to legalize SSM. Take a good hard look at those people protesting at the Capitol.
    If freedom is like that, imagine what will it be like when their kids (if they haven’t aborted) grow up.
    Liberalism has knock over the Out of Bounds Marker of our road towards true freedom.
