Psaki: Biden stands by pledge to nominate
first Black woman to Supreme Court

Original Article

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday that President Biden stands by his commitment to nominate a Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court. Mr. Biden is expected to formally announce Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer’s retirement and will have his first opportunity to install a new justice since taking office. He pledged during the 2020 campaign that he would nominate the first Black woman to serve in the high court if a seat opened during his tenure. “The president has stated and reiterated his commitment to nominating a Black woman to the Supreme Court, and certainly stands by that for today,” Ms. Psaki told reporters.


Not the content of the character, but the color of the skin, because this is America. Who's it going to be, Oprah Winfrey, Whoopie Goldberg? Kamela Harris, even though she's not black but rather Caribbean and Asian Indian? Why not really make a statement and go with a black transwoman in the entity previously known as Michael Vaughan?

More style over substance. A box to be checked off, a non existent quota to be filled.Something to make lefties gurgle with delight. This would make three ( 3 ) idiot women on the court. Did I offend someone?

We are going to see more and more system failures due to diversity criteria. Another problem with liberals is everything has to be a consensus decision. Until the group agrees on a decision nothing gets done. This also results in group think which grossly limits solutions. Of course the current administration is focused on doing everything the wrong way intentionally. Their premise seems to be WWTD What Would Trump Do and then do the opposite in the most damaging way possible. It’s hard to believe there are thus many people who wish bad things on the majority of their countrymen. We will eventually reaching a boiling point and the li

Affirmative action bingo. Biden filled out his cabinet that way, probably will try the same tactic on the Supreme Court. So playing the game, if they appoint a black woman to the Supreme Court, there will be 2 blacks on the Court (one of them competent, Justice Thomas). Double blacks' proportion of the population. Why not switch to a different affirmative action category? 15% of Americans are left-handed, roughly the same proportion as blacks. How many Justices are left-handed? We must repair this inequity!

That's what you said about the VP position. How's that working out for ya? What happened to qualified candidates no matter whom they happen to be? I am sick of this butt kissing to your favorite minority group. Affirmative action does not work out very well when you happen to be unqualified for the job but check other "boxes" that for some reason are more important.

And she will then always be known as the first black female affirmative action post to the Supreme Court. Not nominated because she was the most qualified person available for the position, but just to fulfill a quota. Senile Joe biden has made that very clear. I'm sorry, but the military and the Supreme Court are two places you never want to use for social experiments. The consequences of "dumming down" either of those institutions with underqualified people is a massive danger to this republic and all of us people!!!

Here we go with another "first". The new Black female Supreme Court Justice will never be know for having a brilliant legal mind or intellect. Nope, she will always be know as Black Female. That's it. People might not even remember her name. Just that she was a Black female and she will instantly become some sort of cult hero worshipped simply for being "the first" but not necessarily the best.

We are truly screwed by this...pretty dang sad... There are no explicit requirements in the U.S. Constitution for a person to be nominated to become a Supreme Court justice. No age, education, job experience, or citizenship rules exist. In fact, according to the Constitution, a Supreme Court justice does not need to even have a law degree.

A former senior aide to President Barack Obama condemned Sen. Kyrsten Sinema as 'a c***' during a foul-mouthed appearance on a leftwing podcast. Alyssa Mastromonaco took aim at the Arizona senator for announcing that she could not support a filibuster carve-out in order to pass voting rights legislative—just before President Joe Biden met with Democrats to make one last appeal for their support.

Washington—Republicans’ faith in science is falling as Democrats rely on it even more, with a trust gap in science and medicine widening substantially during the COVID-19 pandemic, new survey data shows. It’s the largest gap in nearly five decades of polling by the General Social Survey, a widely respected trend survey conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago that has been measuring confidence in institutions since 1972. That is unsurprising to more than a dozen scientists reached for comment by The Associated Press, but it concerns many of them. Science used to be something all Americans would get behind, Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley said.

"It has always been the decision of any Supreme Court Justice if and when they decide to retire, and how they want to announce it, and that remains the case today," White House press secretary Jen Psaki wrote in a statement.

Surveillance video shared on social media of a shooting inside a Spring Garden pizza shop last month appears to contradict portions of the initial account shared by police, including the assertion that the shooting victim was shot after he tried to strangle the mother of the teenager who ended up firing on him. The 28-second video instead shows the would-be robber forcefully reaching for the register — not the cashier — in an apparent attempt to steal money. Within seconds, a 14-year-old behind the counter pulled a gun from his waistband and fired from point-blank range, the video shows.

The big news on Monday night was that Joe Biden, in response to a perfectly appropriate question from Fox News White House correspondent Steve Doocy, not only refused to answer, but openly and into the mic called Doocy a "stupid son of a b‑‑‑‑." Biden then called Doocy, ostensibly to apologize. In fact, he didn't apologize at all, but Doocy seemed happy to be the nice guy who accepted a private non-apology in exchange for a public insult. (snip) What he should have said was, "Mr. Biden, you very publicly and crudely insulted me. I expect an equally public, explicit apology."
