In a statement responding to the president’s choice, NAHB Chairman Randy Noel said:

“NAHB supports President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as Associate Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court. He is a worthy successor to retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Throughout his distinguished career, Judge Kavanaugh has been recognized for his sharp legal mind and as a stalwart defender of our Constitution.

“Judge Kavanaugh is eminently qualified to serve on our nation’s highest court. We would urge all senators to vote yes on his confirmation and oppose any efforts to delay consideration.”

    What a farce!

    Public Affairs prepares a statement from the chairman in advance and all they have to do is fill in the blank where the name of the nominee appears so they can throw red meat to the faithful within minutes of the announcement.

    The Administration and the country at large could not care less about NAHB’s endless toadying. It is a total humiliation to be even remotely connected to this organization. What an embarrassment!

    As a Member of the NAHB, it is a necessary function for them to advocate for their members and our rights as landowners and businesses. It is obvious that when you read the important decisions handed down by the US Supreme Court on land ownership, land use, land sales, land regulations, discriminatory practices in land transfers and much more, it is extremely clear the need for NAHB to want great legal minds appointed to the Supreme Court. Please read Jones v. Alfred H. Mayer, Co, 1968, 392US 409; Johnson v. McIntosh, 1823, 21 US 543; or Shelley v. Kraemer, 1948, 334 US 1 to see the importance to the Mission of the NAHB and its members that a great Supreme Court nominee be presented by the President.
