The Brett Kavanaugh hearings have dominated this week’s news cycle. Republicans praise Kavanaugh for his constitutionalism and gravitas, Democrats vilify him for is conservatism and refusal to comment on how he might rule in the future. But sometimes, it seems as though the media frenzy is nothing but sound and fury. Republicans have the Senate votes necessary to confirm Kavanaugh, Democrats in Trump-voting states are under enormous pressure to confirm, and it seems nearly certain that Kavanaugh’s caution and impressive resume will carry him to the bench. On the other hand, confirmation hearings are constitutionally mandated, and presents an important opportunity for America to see what our next SCOTUS justice (who serves for life) believes. In this release, you get to debate whether or not the Kavanaugh confirmation process falls into the category of “necessary process” or “pointless political posturing”.
This week’s topics of debate include social media’s truth problems, the U.S.’s involvement with Palestine, the next trillion-dollar company, Argentina’s financial woes, America’s immigration court backlog, attorney-client privilege, and protests that involve taking a knee.
