    Default American Senate approves Judge Kavanagh nomination for the US Supreme Court

    So the breakdown on this is basically...

    President Trump made his nomination of Judge Kavanagh to the US Supreme Court, and all of a sudden a woman makes an allegation against him of sexual assault when he was a teenager. In much the same way Trump was accused when he ran for President by about twenty women - all who had nothing to say prior to his run. What's amazing though, is how Democrats are believing these women despite no charges or evidence, showing how appalling American politics has become. Thank god Britain, as a constitutional monarchy, doesn't have a powerful political court so we don't have to go through all of this.

    Anyway, this is a big victory for President Trump and his administration - this is his second appointment to the Supreme Court, of which Justices are appointed to for a lifetime. It was said during the election how important the 2016 election was, given the age of many of the sitting Justices. If he serves until 2024 (entirely possible) it is within good chance that he could appoint 5/9 Justices by the end of his term - influencing the balance of the powerful court for decades to come.

    I firmly disagree with the entire election process of the Supreme Court. Serving for life seems completely politically ridiculous. All dem judges die one year? Oh looks like we've got a GOP Supreme Court for the next THIRTY, FORTY YEARS???

    I despair for what this means for the American people.

    The thing is, the lifetime limit makes it more independent than it would otherwise be - in the same way the monarchy or House of Lords retain independence as a result of lifetime appointment. The problem is how the US Supreme Court has become so political, when most issues are supposed to be left to the state level according to the US constitution. Sadly both parties have used the Supreme Court in the last century to advance their own agendas, and in doing so have grown the power of the court.
