She was appointed for a lifetime.
The Senate has just approved of the most radical Supreme Court judge in America’s history.
The appointment is historical.
Not just because she is the first black woman in American history.
But historical for positions, including:
- Not being able to define a woman
- Not believing in God-given natural rights, but rights granted by the state
Expect her to rule:
- Against free enterprise and economic success.
- Against religious liberty and 1st Amendment freedoms
- Against laws protecting society against criminals, parental rights and more
She is a judicial activist.
She believes in legislating from the bench – something only the legislature should do.
Her feelings and opinions are more important than the Constitution.
All the Democrats voted for her.
Three Republicans did also.
They were Senators Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Mitt Romney.
Elections have consequences.
The President appoints a Supreme Court Judge. The Senator must confirm it…or they don’t get appointed.
Three Republicans allowed the nomination to be approved.
That’s why it’s so important in the next election only great, principled candidates win for the U.S. Senate that will vote consistently for American principles, support strict Constructionists judges and oppose judicial activists (see below).
Recently, I interviewed Keisha Toni Russell (see “The War on Religious Liberty: 3 Things You Should Know”).
She recently testified before the U.S. Senate in opposition of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination for the Supreme Court, arguing that her support of critical race theory means she would not be able to uphold the Constitution if she believes it is racist.
“Every lawyer and judge promises to defend and protect the U.S. Constitution, but she cannot uphold this oath if she believes that the Constitution and the principles of America’s foundation are racist and inherently flawed. Neither can a judge remain impartial and administer justice independently if she holds a philosophy that correcting racism requires affording privileged classes less justice than oppressed classes,” Russell said in her opening statement.
Russell gave a powerful statement of her own example: “I am a first-generation American and the daughter of Jamaican-born parents. Despite coming to this country and having to build a life for themselves from the ground up, my parents still raised successful children,” she said.
One of her major points: CRT demands a “radical reordering” of society and restructuring of the systems that supposedly perpetuate racial inequality, and are “incompatible with a judge’s oath to uphold the Constitution.”
“CRT proponents claim that America was founded—and the Constitution was drafted—to promote racism and slavery,” she argued. “Ultimately, we cannot expect a critical race theorist to defend and protect the Constitution, because CRT asserts that the Constitution is not worth defending.”
“Such a view completely contradicts the oath every judge takes. This is an especially problematic view for a justice who will sit on America’s highest court, which often has the last word on the liberty the Constitution guarantees. If we adopt the anti-American views of CRT, we will see the eradication of the principles that made America the freest and most successful republic in history,” she said.
“CRT encourages racist actions and attitudes against the perceived ‘oppressor’ group, namely whites. Ibram X. Kendi, one of CRT’s advocates, brazenly declared: ‘The only remedy to racist discrimination is antiracist discrimination. The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination.’ In essence, CRT proposes that the oppressed group must be granted advantages in society to the detriment of the oppressor group in order to address past injustices,” she said, adding:
If a judge believes that the only way to correct racism is to provide advantages to blacks and disadvantages to whites, this would create dire injustices in that judge’s practices. A judge who is a critical race theorist may decide to provide a lower sentence for a black defendant or a higher sentence to a white defendant to correct perceived disparities in the criminal justice system. Such a philosophy will impact a judge’s fundamental view of legal justice and undermine her ability to adhere to the rule of law. Such racist favoritism is odious to America’s foundational principles and the furtherance of a free society. Focusing on race only exacerbates the problem of racism. A judge who embraces CRTs views may engage in favoritism and partiality, contrary to the judicial canons.
And here is a powerful truth: she argued that a judge must uphold the integrity and independence of the judiciary and she cannot do so if she considers “systemic racism” in her decision-making — since under CRT, the judiciary would be racist.
“CRT does not consider how cultural upbringing, mindsets, or family and community involvement can change the trajectory of people’s lives and ultimately address the racial disparities that exist in our society. CRT does not acknowledge that regardless of the struggles that people face in life, we are all individually responsible for the lives we live and the success we attain. Instead, CRT makes race the predominant relevant factor,” she said.
“A judge must maintain independence and the integrity of the law. To do so, she must acknowledge that people are responsible for their actions, despite the racism or setbacks they may have experienced, and that people deserve justice even if CRT defines them as ‘privileged,’” she said.
Sadly, the Republicans and Democrats ignored her clear and powerful warning.
