Today the Senate Judiciary Committee debated whether to move ahead with the Supreme Court’s appointment of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson most experienced justice in court. Jackson has confirmed the votes first black woman to serve in the high court, and two-thirds of Americans support their confirmation, but Republicans slowed the process through locking the parity committee and require Democrats take an extra, unnecessary vote. The final confirmation vote could happen through this Thursday or Friday.
This stubborn fit parallels the behavior of Republicans at the confirmation hearings two weeks ago, where, in case you’ve forgotten, Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee) asked them to do so define what a woman isJosh Hawley (R-Missouri) tried to smear her as a pro-pedophile, and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) asked her if babies were racist.
When Cory Booker (D-NJ), the committee’s papa joke king, spoke up, he mentioned “the vaunted holiday of Festivus,” a celebration invented by the writers of His field, including an annual complaints review. “I think we’ve probably had the best Festivus celebration here at this hearing in the last week or so because there’s been a lot of complaints,” Booker called.
Here we present a list of grievances that Republican senators have voiced about Jackson during the voting process, a list likely to be updated throughout the week:
Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, the previously voted Confirming Jackson for life in the DC Circuit Court, the second most powerful court in the country, proved he was still pissed about the half-hearted investigation into allegations that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted several women. Considering he won’t be voting to confirm Jackson this time, Graham called: “I’ve never complained about Kavanaugh or anyone else being asked a difficult question, I’ve complained about their lives being destroyed by a coordinated effort by Democrats and the mainstream media trying to destroy someone to… to keep the seat open.” Of course, Kavanaugh’s life wasn’t destroyed — he literally sits on the Supreme Court.
Cruz is also still crazy about Justice Beerbong and complained that not a single Senator asked Jackson about her high school yearbook. He wailed on the radical left: “If Judge Jackson is confirmed, I believe she will prove to be the most extreme and left-wing justice that has ever served on the Supreme Court.” The video of that testimony prompted Cruz former mentorJudge aD Michael Luttig, to draw him for the third week in a row. Cruz also said she would vote to repeal gun rights, abortion restrictions, private funding in elections and school choice, which we hope will.
Hawley trying again Frame Jackson as an empowering child pedophile, he was insane that people would ask him about it. “Sex crimes against children are not fiction. They’re not a conspiracy,” Hawley called, intentionally missing the point. “I’m a former prosecutor. These are real crimes. I’m a father of three young children.” He added: “I like her, I think she’s a good person, but I can’t support her.” What is it, Josh, that you think she’s a good person or that she’s too soft with pedos? Because if you were honest about the latter, you wouldn’t say the former.
Blackburn continued TERF Mama Bear routine through claim Jackson’s unwillingness to define the word “woman” on the ground showed her commitment to “the radical left, which is teaching our children that they can choose their own gender.” Blackburn too thrown in Jackson’s service on the board of directors of a school that—gasp! – teaches children about white privilege.
John Cornyn of Texas implies that Obergefell v. Hodgesthe 2015 case finding marriage equality fell into the same category as Plessy v. Ferguson, the case that legalized racial segregation. That’s what he said upper skin “mandatory same-sex marriages‘, which is news for any person who is not currently married to a member of the same sex.
Utah’s Mike Lee took the time to say that people speaking about inclusion should remember this as treated by the Senate Judge Clarence Thomas in 1991 – when he was credibly accused of sexual harassment – and these are “people on the left at the moment attack brutally him.” Didn’t know that an unelected judge and walking conflicts of interest call for resignation or retire because his wife instigated the uprising was considered a wild attack!
Tom Cotton of Arkansas has characterized Jackson’s time as a federal public defender — during which she notably didn’t get to choose her clients — as time spent “defending terrorists,” and said she spent her time as a judge she “usually sympathizes with criminals rather than victims.”
…just normal reactions that have nothing to do with the upcoming midterm elections in November.
