Joe Biden’s SCOTUS pick should have every American fearing the worst

Joe Biden promised an affirmative action pick for the next Justice for the Supreme Court of the United States. 

The President ignored about 93% of the American public and selected a black woman, just as he promised he would. 

And while the nominee’s race and gender are not a problem, her extreme past certainly is. 

Ketanji Brown Jackson has been nominated for a seat on the High Court.

She’s spent a short time on the D.C. Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.

With more moderate choices – and even an option that would have received a minimum of two, and more likely at least five Republican votes – on his Supreme Court shortlist, President Joe Biden instead decided to appease the Squad and their radical supporters. 

The fact is, President Biden chose perhaps the most radical candidate possible to be his first – and possibly only – SCOTUS nominee. 

But Americans have far more reasons to worry about Ketanji Brown Jackson than simply her affirmative action selection.

Her spotted past is filled with controversies and extreme positions that show she’s out of touch with everyday Americans. 

Jackson is a former law clerk for Justice Stephen Breyer, whose seat on the bench she would be filling should she be confirmed by the Senate.  

Given Breyer’s radical record of consistently voting with liberals in his 28 years as part of SCOTUS should be a disqualifier in and of itself. 

But it gets worse. 

In fact, Jackson once represented a Muslim terrorist imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay – and she refuses to say anything negative about her client even to this day. 

She had also filed briefs in cases involving other Guantánamo detainees while working in private practice.

Just as troubling, during Senate Judiciary questioning for her appointment to the D.C. Appellate Court, Jackson stated “one has to think about unconscious (racial) bias when we are making decisions.”

That’s actually the opposite of what a SCOTUS Justice is supposed to do. 

The role of any Justice on the Supreme Court is simply to rule on the Constitutionality of laws – there is no room for any consideration of supposed “unconscious racial bias.”

Jackson also had a history of ruling against then-President Donald Trump while she sat as an appellate judge on the D.C. circuit.

Many of those rulings were later overturned by her peers – including several regarding Trump’s attempts to fast-track deportations of illegal aliens. 

And while President Biden and his Vice President Kamala Harris have contemplated packing the court with an additional four Justices – not so coincidentally the exact number of nominations the Left would need to overcome the 5-4-1 split on the High Court – Jackson’s silence spoke volumes. 

The fact is, to this very day, Jackson has refused to come out against packing the same court she hopes to be a part of. 

When then-President Bill Clinton appointed Justice Breyer to SCOTUS in 1994, he was confirmed with an 87-9 vote in the Senate. 

There is zero doubt that Jackson will not receive anywhere near that type of bipartisan support when it’s her turn to face the U.S. Senate.  

“One of her prior rulings was just reversed by a unanimous panel of her present colleagues on the D.C. Circuit,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said. “I also understand Judge Jackson was the favored choice of far-left ‘dark money’ groups that have spent years attacking the legitimacy and structure of the court itself.”

Three Republicans, Lindsay Graham (R-SC), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Susan Collins (R-ME), voted to approve Jackson for the D.C. Circuit spot. 

However, Graham has already said he’s disappointed in Biden’s selection and Murkowski has said her past vote isn’t necessarily an indication of her vote on a SCOTUS appointment.

It looks like a fight could be brewing in Washington, D.C. over this controversial appointment – and conservatives better make sure their Senators know where they stand.
