  • Obamacare premiums are coming down — and Trump deserves the blame

Protesters demonstrate on first day with newly sworn in Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the court at the Supreme Court in Washington, U.S., October 9, 2018.

Kavanaugh was confirmed 50-48 Saturday, the closest vote to confirm a justice since 1881, and has had a busy three days since then. Ford told lawmakers she was "100 percent" certain Kavanaugh attacked her, but Kavanaugh forcefully denied he had assaulted her or any other woman.

And on Monday evening he was the guest of honor at a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House.

Democrats had fought tooth and nail to stop Kavanaugh´s candidacy, claiming that the accomplished, conservative-minded judge was not suited to the Supreme Court. Appointed by President Donald Trump, Kavanaugh's confirmation cemented a conservative majority on the court that could last for years.

"Justice Kavanaugh will serve our country admirably on the court because he understands that the very best way to protect human dignity and freedom is by respecting and enforcing the limits on government power contained in our Constitution", said Leonard Leo, executive vice president of the Federalist Society, who has played a critical role in the selection of conservative judges for the Trump White House.

"It gives me great pleasure, on behalf of myself and my colleagues, to welcome Justice Kavanaugh to the Court", said Chief Justice John Roberts, in a brief bench statement at the start of the session.

Nana had dismissed the allegations while a journalist and an assistant director on the film corroborated Tanushree's account. On the way out, her auto was attacked but with the help of the police she managed to escape from the spot, it added.

As Trump, the other eight court justices and a number of Republican senators crucial to the confirmation process watched, retired Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the judicial oath to Kavanaugh.

Any technical arguments are likely to be overshadowed by Kavanaugh's first public appearance wearing the traditional black robe donned by Supreme Court justices. Kavanaugh will hear his first cases on Tuesday, when the court convenes at 10 a.m.

"Say it loud, and say it clear: Kavanaugh's not welcome here!" they chanted, dressed in long red robes and white hats in temperatures slated to reach 80 degrees.

Kavanaugh's allies predicted the partisan air around his confirmation would fade.

"It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil". Only Samuel Alito and Stephen Breyer participated in White House events after they had been sworn in and begun work as justices, according to the court's records on the current crop of justices.

The latest justice to join the bench, Neil Gorsuch, spoke past year during his swearing-in at the White House Rose Garden.

Premier left 'upset' after protesters disrupted racing promotion at Opera House
MORE than 3000 people descended on the Sydney Opera House overnight to protest the Racing NSW projections on the iconic building. The guidelines have always been stretched in the part and the commercialisation of the Opera House has always been there.

There were no protests in the court, unlike his contentious Senate hearing last month.

Christine Blasey Ford's bombshell interview with The Washington Post and her emotional testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee threatened to upend the nomination after she accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both in high school.

"The Supreme Court is a team of nine and I will always be a team player on the team of nine".

Two years ago, McConnell blocked a vote on Garland, citing what he said was a tradition of not filling vacancies in a presidential election year.
