Outing the chapters of the nefarious Federalist Society of Northern California

By Lynda Carson - September 10, 2018

San Francisco - The nefarious activities of the Federalist Society have been in the public eye recently because Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a contributor, member, and myrmidon of the Federalist Society, is the nominee of President Donald Trump, for the U.S. Supreme Court. The U.S. Senate is expected to confirm Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court sometime soon during September, unless enough swing vote senators including Sen. Susan Collins, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski vote against Kavanaugh.

In San Francisco, the Federalist Society has a chapter located in the law firm of Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher LLP, and attorney Joseph R. Rose is the contact person for the Federalist Society, at Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher LLP.

According to Open Secrets, Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher LLP PAC made numerous campaign contributions to Sen. Susan Collins including a $6,000 contribution in 2018, in addition to another campaign contribution of $3,250 in 2014, plus another $1,500 campaign contribution in 2018.

Additionally, Michael Bopp a member of the Federalist Society, and a partner of Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher LLP, is closely connected to Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, as the Legislative Director and General Counsel to Senator Susan Collins of Maine from 1999 to 2003. At one point he served as outside general counsel to the campaign to re-elect Senator Susan Collins, and with such close ties to the Federalist Society it is unlikely that Senator Susan Collins will vote against the Brett Kavanaugh nomination to the Supreme Court. It appears that the fix is in.

The Federalist Society also has a local chapter in Santa Rosa located in the law firm of Bernheim and Hicks, with Lawrence Bernheim as the contact person. Of interest, the license status of Lawrence Bernheim is inactive.

Additionally, the Federalist Society also has a Sacramento chapter, with Ashlee Titus an attorney with the law firm of Bell, McAndrews and Hiltachk, LLP, listed as the contact person for the Federalist Society.

The Silicon Valley chapter of the Federalist Society is headed by Chris Hage, a member of the fascist Republican National Lawyers Association. Campaign contributors to the fascist Republican National Lawyers Association, are located across the country, and these donors should be boycotted.

Other nefarious chapters of the Federalist Society in Northern California include a students chapter at Hastings College, and a students chapter at USFC.

The shady activities of the Federalist Society have been so nefarious and corrupt, recently it was reported that 15 judges objected to the use of state funds being used for a Federalist Society conference.

The 990 tax filings for the Federalist Society reveals that they have been active in Europe, including Iceland and Greenland, and have invested at least $1,437,048 to meddle in the affairs of the Caribbean.

There have been at least 272 people arrested last week for protesting against the Trump nomination of Brett M. Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court of the United States. Kavanaugh resides in a $1.3 million dollar home in Chevy Chase, Maryland. According to Wikipedia, Brett Michael Kavanaugh was born February 12, 1965.

In an August 29, 2018, release from Public Citizen, “During his 12 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh decided or wrote an opinion against the public interest 87 percent of the time in split-decision cases in five key areas, including consumer, environmental and worker rights cases,” according to Public Citizen.

Trump may have nominated Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court, but reportedly Leonard Leo of the Federalist Society was the man who recommended Kavanaugh to Trump for the Supreme Court.

Not only did Leonard Leo’s nefarious corrupt activities grease the wheels with Trump to get Kavanaugh nominated to the Supreme Court, but according to Open Secrets, Leonard Leo was involved in a nefarious scheme with the BH Group to funnel $1 million in dark money into the committee that would fund Trumps inaugural celebration.

Leonard Leo of the Federalist Society, resides in a $700,000 home in McLean, Virginia, and according to a 990 tax filing for a period ending in 2017, Leonard A. Leo, Director/Exec Vice President of the Federalist Society, raked in around $486,000.

Among the nefarious activities of the Federalist Society and Leonard Leo, the right-wing extremist organization provided a shortlist of nominees which are members of the Federalist Society for the Supreme Court that Trump could choose from. This is unheard of, and the fix was in. They call this democracy. In contrast, just try to imagine what kind of an uproar would occur if it was the AFL-CIO that gave a shortlist of nominees for the Supreme Court to Trump.

Since its inception in 1982, the right-wing extremist Federalist Society and its members have infiltrated federal, state, and local governments and has a strangle hold on Congress because so many members of the house and senate are beholden to the Federalist Society.

If Brett Kavanaugh, a member of the Federalist Society is confirmed to be a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court it means that the right-wing fascist Federalist Society will have a 5 to 4 stranglehold over the Supreme Court.
