The confirmation hearings begin today as the Senate is ready to question, or praise, the nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. I say question or praise because it depends on the side of the aisle the Senator sits. We have become that divisive. Depending on your party, you either have to vilify or grill the nominee or gush with unwarranted adoration.
Like the search for a running mate and eventual Vice President, President Biden has broken the law by narrowing the field to Black Females. If a corporation CEO placed an ad for a “Black Female CFO, no others need to apply,” they would be fined and probably tender their resignation. Not our President. He can shun every other pool sector, and we saw how well that worked the first time.
Biden is not looking to nominate the next great Associate Justice that will defend the Constitution but to appease the Woke crowd and have the legacy of placing the first black justice on the Court. Such a shallow motivation for such an important decision and appointment. The reason this country is on the wrong track, according to an overall percentage of the people, is because Diversity and Equity were the standards for Cabinet positions and not competence.
The country is suffering the effects of a Woke administration. Is the Supreme Court now feeling the same blow? The barbs and accusations are already flying as the Republicans express their concerns about the Judge. She has limited experience at the Federal level, confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in 2021. She has only one published paper, and many of her rulings have been overturned on appeal.
Some feel that she has shown a softness to crime, and her pro-bono representation of alleged inmates at Guantanamo concerns many. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been vocal about his concerns and is being torched by the msm. The following from The Grio:
“The assault on Judge Brown Jackson came as Hawley tweeted a lengthy thread last week accusing her of being lenient in dealing with sex offenders—particularly those who hurt children. Other Republicans predictably are following his lead. Hawley went on his favorite network, Fox News, on Thursday night and spewed more of his venom. “I think we just have a basic question to ask,” Hawley said. “Are we gonna get a judge here who’s gonna protect children, or who’s gonna protect child predators?”
So doing his job is “assaulting” a nominee. I fear that the false testimony brought against Judge Kavanaugh, in an attempt to stop the nomination and destroy his reputation, did not face the same scrutiny. The problem with the current scenario with Judge Brown is that the Left will tolerate no criticism. To do so will bring labels of racist, misogynist, or in the case of an MSNBC contributor, a killer.
The Nation’s Elie Mystal said Saturday on MSNBC that by bringing up Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson’s record on the U.S. Sentencing Commission, Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., was “trying to get her killed.”
Mystal said he needed the Democrats to “step up” at this week’s confirmation hearings for the first Black woman nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“What Josh Hawley is doing. Let’s be very clear. What Josh Hawley is doing when he tries to do this is he’s trying to get her killed. He is trying to get violence done against a Supreme Court nominee,” Mystal said on MSNBC’s “The Cross Connection with Tiffany Cross.”
The hearings in the Senate will be ugly and partisan this week. That is where the Senate, and the House, have evolved. The Judge will likely be confirmed unless any Democrat Senators break from the pack. Does she deserve the job? In my opinion, no. I do not see her as a Justice who will rule by the word of the Constitution.
I see her as someone who wants to write policy from the bench and impact the world. That is a dangerous person to be in a lifetime appointment.
That last statement is why we need to push forward on our work to get thirty-four states to approve the resolution to force Congress to call for a Convention of States under Article V of the Constitution.
