Republican Sen. Susan Collins has already voiced her intentions to vote to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson for the Supreme Court, as has Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, so it’s now being treated as a certainty. Democrats are rushing forward with a vote today to advance her nomination out of the Judiciary Committee and hurry it to a floor vote.
But her confirmation process has actually made her appear less qualified than she seemed at first glance. Her record of going easy on pedophiles is disturbing enough. And the New York Post obtained transcripts of some of those rulings that are even more disturbing that we’ve been led to believe (warning: graphic details at the link.)
Also, the Democrats have refused even to release other records on her. And Sen. Ted Cruz revealed that in the written questions he submitted to her, she claimed she was unable to state whether Americans have natural rights. I’m not a lawyer, but I’m pretty sure the Founders listed our God-given rights in a PS to the Constitution called “The Bill of Rights.”
I get that she was too afraid of the trans lobby to admit that she knows what a “woman” is, but who is she afraid of offending by admitting that she knows Americans are endowed by their Creator with certain natural rights? Personally, I don’t want someone who’s unclear on that concept sitting on the Supreme Court for life.
Republicans may not have the majority, but lest we forget, neither do the Democrats. They just have the Veep to break ties. There is still a way that the Republicans could stop this headlong rush to place someone on the SCOTUS who doesn’t know a woman from a natural right. Allan Stevo at American Greatness explains how, but it would require all the Republicans to stand together to protect America. Let’s hope that’s not too much to ask of some of them.
