Biden Delivers On Promise, Nominates Black Woman Ketanji Brown Jackson To Supreme Court

As had been expected, President Joe Biden on Friday nominated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, a black woman, for the Supreme Court.

Currently, Jackson sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. If confirmed, she would be the first black woman to serve on the nation’s highest court.

Jackson would replace Justice Stephen Breyer, who recently announced he would be retiring.

Democrats Focus On History Not Record

Several of Jackson’s rulings have been overturned by higher courts. In one case, a D.C. Circuit panel dominated by Democrats determined that Jackson has set aside a rule created by the Trump administration but there was no legal grounds to do so.

Another case which involved expansion of the Department of Homeland Security definition determining which non-citizens could be deported, Jackson’s decision was overturned. 

Still another of Jackson’ rulings was thrown out because in three collective bargaining orders, again the D.C. Circuit court said that Jackson did not have jurisdiction to decide the case.

Jackson’s Back Story With Clarence Thomas

Should Ketanji Jackson be confirmed, she will already be familiar with one of her new colleagues, Clarence Thomas. While clerking for Justice Stephen Breyer, Jackson says she sat across from Thomas and thought, “I don’t understand you.” 

A report from ABC News about Jackson “not understanding” Thomas – because he is a black man who is conservative – comes to some very interesting conclusions, but not the ones they might have intended. Both Jackson and Thomas come from similar backgrounds, growing up in working class families in the south, attending predominantly white colleges, yet coming to different ideological persuasions.

“Scholars” who spoke to ABC speculate that the presence of Jackson would somehow be beneficial for Thomas to come around to the “correct” way of thinking for black Americans.

A senior GOP official, who happens to be black, confirms the “if you are a black conservative you are not really black” premise put forth by Democrats.

“There is a notion out there that if a Black person’s thought pattern, or vote, or disposition is not liberal, then it’s wrong. … If Clarence Thomas makes an opinion and it happens to be conservative, it is automatically thought to be against the Black community just because it’s conservative and not liberal. It’s a sad state when your Blackness is questioned just because of your political affiliation.”

Trip Down Memory Lane

While Joe Biden and the Democrats are busy pandering to minorities, a trip down memory lane might be in order. Joe Biden had a chance to green light a black woman on the Court long ago, 2003 to be exact.

Then-Senator Joe Biden successfully filibustered Judge Janice Rogers Brown’s nomination by President George W. Bush to sit on the very court Ketanji Jackson sits on now. Biden then proceeded to let President Bush know that if he nominated her to the Supreme Court, he would do the same thing again.

After Justice Sandra Day O’Connor announced her retirement, and Rogers Brown was known to be on Bush’s short list of nominees,  Biden promised, “I can assure you that would be a very, very, very difficult fight and she probably would be filibustered.”

What’s the difference Joe? You don’t have to answer that. We know what the difference is. Just ask Clarence Thomas.
