Democrats and the media did everything in their power to stop Brett Kavanaugh from sitting on the Supreme Court.
That’s why they smeared him with allegations of sexual misconduct.
And now Brett Kavanaugh found out his fate with this big decision.
Brett Kavanaugh Strikes Down Obama’s Global Warming Agenda
Before the Senate confirmed him to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh sat at the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
That is known as the second most powerful court in the land.
It’s close to the federal government and it often hears key cases about regulations and Constitutional law.
In 2017 – when Kavanaugh was still on that court – he authored an opinion striking down one of Barack Obama’s job-killing global warming regulations.
In 2015, the Obama administration wanted to eliminate the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFC’s) as part of an international global warming treaty.
Two companies sued and claimed Obama went beyond his authority as President.
They argued that since HFC’s were not ozone-depleting substances, Obama did not have the power to anthem under the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy.
Kavanaugh ruled in their favor.
He wrote, “Here, EPA has tried to jam a square peg into a round hole” Kavanaugh continued. “Climate change is not a blank check for the President.”
Kavanaugh argued that Obama needed permission from Congress to take this step.
He stated, “However much we might sympathize or agree with EPA’s policy objectives, EPA may act only within the boundaries of its statutory authority.”
“Here, EPA exceeded that authority,” he concluded.
Kavanaugh Gets Some Good News
The Supreme Court just rejected an appeal by the Natural Resource Defense Council and other manufacturers to Kavanaugh’s ruling.
That means Kavanaugh’s ruling stands.
And another piece of Obama’s disastrous legacy is history.
Donald Trump campaigned on unleashing America’s energy sector.
He railed against Obama’s un-American global warming agenda.
Obama believed America was unjustly wealthy.
Liberals like Obama contend America polluted the atmosphere and corrupted the environment.
They argue America must pay a price for this behavior.
So Obama entered into deals like the Paris Global Warming Accords and put in place the Clean Power Plant rules.
The goal was to strain America’s energy sector and send the nation’s jobs and wealth overseas.
Trump Undoes the Obama Agenda
Trump began dismantling this agenda on Day One.
He withdrew from the Paris Accords.
Trump rolled back the Clean Power Plan – which Obama put in place after campaigning on saying you could build new coal plants but that it would bankrupt you.
The left believes the Constitution is a living document that needs to change with the times.
If Obama wants to regulate HFC’s to reduce global warming then he should not have to be bothered by the Constitution and separation of powers.
Kavanaugh simply interpreted the text as it was written and ruled Obama did not have that power.
President Trump was looking for this type of judicial philosophy when he looked for Anthony Kennedy’s replacement.
