In Karlin’s opening statement before the House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing, Karlin opined that “Based on the evidentiary record before you, what has happened in the case today is something that I do not think we have ever seen before: a president who has doubled down on violating his oath to ‘faithfully execute’ the laws and to ‘protect and defend the Constitution.' The evidence reveals a president who used the powers of his office to demand that a foreign government participate in undermining a competing candidate for the presidency.”

What evidentiary record?

You mean the opinions, suppositions, and presumptions of those Trump-hating hyper-partisans who disagreed with the way the President faithfully executed the duties of his office in matters of foreign affairs? The only fact witness to testify was Ambassador Gordon Sondland, who stated unequivocally, under oath, that the President did not ask for a quid pro quo and that any idea to the contrary was his presumption.

If Professor Karlan ever stands for nomination to the Supreme Court, I can see clips from her performance before the House Judiciary Committee played at her Senate confirmation hearings. She is pointing out her partisanship, lack of understanding of the Constitution, and her lack of judicial temperament. Or even worse, a clip of her 2006 remarks at the American Constitution Society’s 2006 national convention.

Speaking before the American Constitution Society’s 2006 national convention,  Professor Karlani, in her closing remarks, had this to say...

"The rich pampered prodigal sanctimonious incurious white straight sons of the powerful do pretty well everywhere in the world, and they always have."

[OCS: Sounds like she is describing Hunter Biden who was given a seat on the board of Burisma Holdings, a corrupt Ukrainian Oil Company, although he had zero experience in oil, gas, or business in the Ukraine. What he did have is a rich, powerful daddy who greatly influenced the political future in Ukraine -- and who bragged on tape that he withheld a $1 billion U.S. loan guarantee unless the State Prosecutor was fired. The very same prosecutor who was investigating corruption in the company that employed Hunter Biden.]

"But what about us? Snarky bi-sexual Jewish women who want the freedom to say what we think, read what we want, and love who we do."

[OCS: I was not aware of any law -- or anyone -- who has even attempted to tell a Snarky bi-sexual Jewish woman what to think, read, or love. Primarily because they don't listen and continually repeat their shrill mantra endlessly like a broken record.

Hardly someone I would want on the Supreme Court deciding constitutional matters in an impartial manner according to what the framers said or intended.]

Bottom line…

Just what we need on the Supreme Court, "a snarky bi-sexual Jewish woman” who sees everything through the prism of her vagina and toxic progressive ideology.

We are so screwed.
