A ‘Yes’ vote of 50 and ‘No’ vote of 48 from the Senate sent Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court position on Sat. Oct. 6. The news set off different reactions for students at SVHS, some of whom have voiced their opinions on social media and through discussions in class. This nation-wide news is impacting students and adults and their efforts to impact the future.  

  An allegation that Kavanaugh “sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford when she was 15 and he was 17” from Newsweek was made public Sept 14. The released statement put officials on edge, leading to a hearing on Sept. 27. Both Ford and Kavanaugh sat through a day of testimony and “were questioned by senators and outside prosecutor Rachel Mitchell” to discuss the accusations more in depth.

  During the testimony watched in classrooms across SVHS, Ford explained her personal experiences that hindered her life after the suspected assault. On the other hand, Kavanaugh denied the charge of the assault and Julie Swetnick’s statement that he has a past of “aggressive behavior towards girls.”

  The decision about Kavanaugh’s placement on the Supreme Court was delayed due to the FBI investigations, which focused on interviewing other women from Kavanaugh’s past with similar statements. After the investigations and testimony, a decision was made: Kavanaugh was confirmed into the Supreme Court.

  This decision has already sparked many Democrat voters as they are calling for the party to throw out many Republican members of Congress in November’s election.

Whether or not this push is enough to flip enough seats, the partisan politics in America continue to divide the nation.
