As this SCOTUS battle begins we're going to see the hypocrisy of the left in spades. It seems clear Biden and his band of midwits are going to put forward a black woman who is bound to be so far left even Sotomayor may look like an intelligent conservative.
So, while Democrats have screamed about fairness and character for decades, when they're in power, none of that matters. It's all about pushing their agenda, qualifications notwithstanding. It's now about race, gender and destroying the Constitution.
Breyer, in spite of contrary claims by allegedly conservative news sources, was a terrible justice. He will be replaced with a justice that's not just terrible, but terrible and incompetent, just like all the other appointees of the Biden administration, and the media propaganda machine will go into a high gear as we've never seen it before.
The only hope?
If the Republicans can possibly stall this nomination until the 118 Congress is seated on January 3, 2023, and they've taken over the Senate. That's not much of a hope, and when the dust settles, there will and incompetent far left wing justice who will be there infesting our judicial system for probably the next 30 years.
Barrett is 50, Gorsuch is 54, Kavanaugh is 56, Kagan is 61, Sotomayor is 67, Roberts is 67, Alito is 71, and only one who is a brilliant Constitutional scholar, Clearance Thomas, who is 73. The next one's age? Who knows, but I have no doubt their pick won't be out of their 50's.
Who knows, he may actually convince Kamala Harris to resign as Vice President to become the next Justice of the Supreme Court. Now, that's rich, she would then be the tie breaking vote to pick herself.
We need a 28 amendment to the Constitution to create term and age limits for the federal judiciary.
Enjoy today's offerings.
Biden's first term has become a complete disaster. He's underwater
and losing support among most Dems. He's not about to reclaim national
support, but he needs to at least build up support among the two groups
that are the Dem base. That means, and it's all but inevitable, that the nominee will be a
black leftist woman. Biden already promised as much and these are the
two groups that Biden needs to survive a Dem primary, where he's
underwater, never mind a general election. But Biden also needs to make the nomination look like a win, rather
than being at the mercy of Breyer's decision to step down, and to amp up
identity politics.................While Republicans should dig up and explore just how extreme her views are, don't expect that to stop the train. If Dale Ho can end up getting through, just about anyone can...... 12 comments
Yesterday I wrote a post titled, "The Supreme Court Nomination Debate Will Consist of Republicans Being Called Racists." I got it in a few hours before the live show actually began. "Right-wing commentators spread hate — and hypocrisy — on Biden's upcoming Supreme Court pick," Media Matters for America shrieked. One blog went even better with, "THE SUPREME COURT NOMINEE IS A NI[CLANG]!" At PJ Media, Matt Margolis satirically wrote, "Biden's Supreme Court Pick Sexually Assaulted Me 25 Years Ago."
"I can tell you right now, whoever Biden picks, they sexually assaulted me 25 years ago at a high school party."
These days, reality always beats satire over the head and leaves it bleeding in a ditch. That's why I hardly bother writing it anymore. The real-world takeaway is accusing Republicans of racism against a nominee who hasn't even been picked yet........7 comments
You may recall Demand Justice, backed by the Sixteen Thirty Fund's dark money machine, trying to harass Justice Stephen Breyer into quitting last year.
Demand Justice, an advocacy group led by a former top aide to Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), is pressing longtime liberal stalwart Justice Stephen Breyer to retire from the Supreme Court.
“We are now firmly in the window when past justices have announced their retirement, so it's officially worrisome that Justice Breyer has not said yet that he will step down. The only responsible choice for Justice Breyer is to immediately announce his retirement so President Biden can quickly nominate the first-ever Black woman Supreme Court justice,” said Brian Fallon, the executive director of Demand Justice and a former top aide to Schumer.
Demand Justice has hired a billboard truck to drive around the Supreme Court with the message: “Breyer, retire. It’s time for a Black woman Supreme Court justice. There’s no time to waste."
The group also launched an online petition asking signatories to “Tell Justice Breyer: Put the country first. Don’t risk your legacy to an uncertain political future. Retire now.’”
If conservatives had been doing this kind of thing, there would have been an FBI investigation and congressional hearings about an urgent threat to democracy. Since it was not just lefties, but radicals backed by the big lefty money machine, there was just awkwardness. Justice Breyer released a statement dismissing such efforts at pressuring him to resign.
