“Kavanaugh could provide the fifth vote to overturn the 40-year-old experiment with Affirmative Action that uses racial preferences to promote some kind of nebulous diversity.”
Ilya Shaprio, the Cato Institute’s senior fellow in constitutional studies, Kavanaugh disagrees with libertarians on national security. But on just about every other issue, Kavanaugh would likely advance liberty.
Shapiro notes that Kavanaugh is one of the best judges in the country at opposing government regulation on individuals and companies. As a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, Kavanaugh tried to strike down lots of regulations: net neutrality, EPA admissions rules, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He didn’t always succeed, but he argued that they were all bureaucratic overreaches.
Shapiro tells Stossel that Kavanaugh would also likely overturn Kelo v. City of New London, the eminent domain decision that upheld the right of governments to take private property for nearly any reason.
Kavanaugh is also good on gun rights. Citing the Second Amendment, he tried to overturn a D.C. ban on all semi-automatic rifles.
Should libertarians be happy with Kavanaugh overall, Stossel asks? “Definitely,” Shapiro says. “He’s not going to agree with us all the time, certainly. But no judges or justices do.”
Nike is using Kaepernick to sell overpriced shoes to the sort of virtue signaling thirty-something suburbanites who decorate their barren front yards with placards reading, “In This House Black Lives Matter and We Believe in Science.”
NIKE: THE SOCIAL JUSTICE SLAVE LABOR SHOE THAT SIGNALS HATE FOR AMERICA
Nike’s latest romance is with Kaepernick, an America-hating racist who wears socks that show POLICE OFFICERS as PIGS.
President Donald Trump pointed to the devastating effect on Nike after the sports brand endorsed Colin Kaepernick’s protests against law enforcement.
“Just like the NFL, whose ratings have gone WAY DOWN, Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts,” Trump wrote. “I wonder if they had any idea that it would be this way?”
Nike stock fell 3 percent on Tuesday after announcing their campaign with Kaepernick over Labor Day weekend.
Trump said that Nike was sending a “terrible message” to its customers but acknowledged that they were also a tenant of his building in New York City.
Trump also weighed in on the ongoing NFL struggle over whether athletes should be allowed to kneel during the national anthem.
“As far as the NFL is concerned, I just find it hard to watch, and always will, until they stand for the FLAG!” he wrote..
Owning Nike shoes used to signal pretentions to fitness, now it’s meant to signal pretensions to activism. Everyone can’t change the world But anyone can buy two hundred dollar shoes assembled by teenage girls on the verge of passing out in hundred degree heat to show off their commitment to social justice.
And what better spokesman for that fake farce could there be than Colin Kaepernick?
