so RBG broke her promise to hire African-American law clerks
Kavanaugh makes good on his pledge at hearing to hire women as law clerks

Justice Kavanaugh just hired the Supreme Court's first all-women law clerk team
During his confirmation hearing, Justice Kavanaugh proudly boasted that "no federal judge ... has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have."
He also said he had four female law clerks ready to work for him "on a moment's notice," which would make him "the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all-women law clerks."
Justice Kavanaugh was as good as his word, and those four women (Kim Jackson, Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy, and Sara Nommensen), were at the Supreme Court on Sunday, aiding Justice Kavanaugh ahead of his first case hearings this week.
Jackson, who is African-American and has previously worked for Justice Kavanaugh, will become one of only three current black law clerks working at the Supreme Court this term.
One of the other 2 black law clerks also previously worked for Justice Kavanaugh

be interesting to see what the DOJ/FBI do about this. My guess would be nothing
Chairman Grassley Criminally Refers ANOTHER Kavanaugh Accuser to DOJ – Woman ADMITS Rape Accusation Was a “Ploy”
this one had claimed that she was raped in a car by Justice Kavanaugh and another man

The Japanese man married to a hologram
it being japan, it's a hologram of an underage girl
Kondo's not alone either: he says Gatebox has issued more than 3,700 certificates for "cross-dimension" marriages and some people have sent him supportive messages.

That scenario would have been more surprising if it hadn’t been the basis for the book Idoru, written by William Gibson in the mid-90s.

And, of course, the hologram is not “underage”, since the age of consent in Japan is 13.

Kavanaugh Joins Liberals To Protect Pro-Planned Parenthood Ruling
it looks like Kavanaugh is a dud like Roberts, and the Court is still composed of 3 conservatives, 2 centrists, and 4 liberals. The same as 1991 when Clarence Thomas joined the Court

Since the creation of the Court of Appeals, there has been no automatic right of appeal to the Supreme Court. Instead there's a process known as Certiorari. The Court meets to discuss which cases to take, and if 4 justices support it, a case will be added to the docket.
In this case, we know (a) it failed to muster 4 votes in conference and (b) the 3 conservatives (Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch) supported the case, because they wrote a dissent. Which means Roberts and Kavanaugh opposed along with the liberals.

It's no suprise that Kavanaugh is a centrist. All we know is he's not conservative so he may even be another Souter.
He's a bushie.
