Biden Threatened to Filibuster the Black Female Judge Bush Wanted to Nominate to Supreme Court

Biden is taking an awful lot of credit for being the first President to nominate a Black female to the Supreme Court of the United States. Mainstream media and Democrats are trying to spin a narrative that Republicans are against Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination solely because she is Black, which is a disgusting and perverted lie.

In today’s world, when Biden is President and also recently served as vice president, he calls the filibuster a “relic of the Jim Crow era.” But that was not the Biden of the past. In fact, Biden was quite fond of the filibuster, including for, you guessed it, a Black female to be nominated to the Supreme Court.

George W. Bush nominated Judge Janice Rogers Brown to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. The D.C. Circuit “is considered the country’s second-most important court, and has produced more Supreme Court justices than any other federal court” reports The Washington Post.

Biden and his fellow Senate Democrats filibustered her nomination, and many of Bush’s circuit court nominees. Columnist Robert Novak called the situation “the first full scale effort in American history to prevent a president from picking the federal judges he wants.”

Bush nominated Brown again in 2005 and she was eventually confirmed by a vote of 56 to 43. It was Biden’s second time voting against her nomination. When Sandra Day O’Connor announced her retirement, opening up a spot on the Supreme Court, Rogers was on Bush’s short list to be her replacement.

Not so fast declared Biden, who used the filibuster he now purports to be a Jim Crow era move. Biden went on CBS’s “Face the Nation” and warned that if Bush nominated Brown for the Supreme Court, she would face filibuster.

“I can assure you that would be a very, very, very difficult fight and she probably would be filibustered” said Biden. What Biden proposed was to make Brown, a Black woman, the first in history to have her nomination killed by filibuster. Bush eventually nominated Samuel A. Alito Jr. to the court.

    Why won’t anyone in the reporters’ pool ask Jen Psaki or Bien, if he would take questions, this very thing?

    Lest we forget, many months prior to the invasion of Ukraine, Biden called pUtin a “killer”. Real smart way to find common ground for a possible pathway to peace. TOO LATE.

    Thanks for this history that Biden and US media apparently have forgotten or overlooked or wrote off because it involved Appeals Court rather than SCOTUS.

Whistleblower: FBI manipulating cases to create ‘illusion’ of domestic violent extremism

In a letter addressed to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said a whistleblower has come forward detailing how the FBI is manipulating cases related to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot to create “the illusion” that domestic violent extremism is a widespread problem in the United States.

Jordan, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, claimed the “manipulative case-file practice” was being conducted by the bureau’s Washington field office, which was instructing local FBI offices to open up cases on their books that were in fact simply related to the Capitol breach.

“The  FBI’s case categorization creates the illusion that threats from DVE are present in jurisdictions across the nation, when in reality they all stem from the same related investigation concerning the actions at the Capitol on January 6,” Jordan wrote.

“Such an artificial case categorization scheme allows FBI leadership to misleadingly point to ‘significant’ increases in DVE threats nationwide,” he added.

Jordan noted this particular whistleblower is just one of many with similar information: “consistent with disclosures we have received from other whistleblowers that high-ranking FBI officials — including a senior WFO official — are pressing front-line agents to categorize cases as DVE matters to fit a political narrative.”

The letter also brought attention to the inappropriate amount of resources the department has devoted to the January 6 Capitol riots:

“The whistleblower disclosed that the FBI is sacrificing its other important federal law-enforcement duties to pursue January 6 investigations,” Jordan wrote. “The whistleblower recalled, for example, being told that child sexual abuse material investigations were no longer an FBI priority and should be referred to local law enforcement agencies.

“Such a posture is not only a dereliction of the FBI’s mission to investigate violations of federal laws, but it is a grave disservice to the victims of child sexual abuse and other crimes that do not advance the FBI leadership’s political agenda.”
