President Joe Biden apparently can’t get over his newfound executive power.
Then again, he’s only been angling to be president for half a century, so he undoubtedly feels “entitled” to flex his federal powers with impunity, regardless of the long-term impacts on the nation.
Humorously, Biden portrays himself as a moderate, though the outcomes of his policies are anything but.
Just consider his claims regarding “excellence and decency.”
“Our process is going to be rigorous. I will select a nominee worthy of Justice Breyer’s legacy of excellence and decency,” Biden intoned.
If Biden had merely stopped there, his remarks would have been logical, and some would even say presidential.
Which is why it’s a real shame that Biden thought it would be a good idea to add in his standard affirmative action commentary, which somewhat negates the “excellence” he previously supported.
“While I’ve been studying candidates’ backgrounds and writings, I’ve made no decision except one: The person I nominate will be someone with extraordinary qualifications, character, experience and integrity – and that person will be the first Black woman ever nominated to the United States Supreme Court. It’s long overdue, in my view,” Biden brayed.
Yeah. How convenient.
A black female Supreme Court appointee right in time for the midterms, as if average Americans paying over $4 per gallon and double for food products will be so inclined to change their minds over that.
Moreover, one can only hope that the process is more “rigorous” than the process used for Kamala Harris, who is clearly only where she is now due to how she happened to look when she was born.
The most surprising thing about Harris so far is how inept she comes across in person; while the intellect was clearly never there, she clearly has quite a bit left to learn in terms of basic public self-presentation.
Perhaps her communication hires should be less “woke” and more educated.
They should optimally stay off personal social media accounts as well, given the rather embarrassing social media histories of most of her idiotic new hires.
Anyway, Biden may well be getting ready to pull another “Kamala,” judging from his rather intimidating update to lawmakers, a copy of which was obtained by Axios.
“The president is leading a thorough and rigorous process to name an exceptionally qualified nominee, with strong experience, character, and integrity – who will be the first Black woman to serve on the highest court,” the update said pompously.
Great. Tell us something we don’t already know.
“He shares senators’ view that a president deserves latitude to have his nominees confirmed as long as they are well-qualified, but as a longtime chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he also takes the ‘advice’ part of the process very seriously,” the update continued.
The update also warned that Biden had immense presidential “latitude” in determining the ultimate Court pick.
Another display of impressive respect for checks and balances.
One thing is for sure: Biden certainly takes his dark money “very seriously,” and that same dark money just happens to be backing the latest Supreme Court saga, as stated directly by one contributor himself.
Brian Fallon, Executive Director of Demand Justice, declared, “we expect the Senate will act to confirm Biden’s pick quickly, but we will do and spend whatever is needed to ensure that ends up being the case. This is a history-making moment to put the first Black woman on the court.”
Demand Justice and Building Back Together are amongst the two groups donating millions to ensure Biden’s “latitude” is respected.
As, 510(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations, they conveniently do not have to make donation disclosures, though they can clearly wield disturbing influence over the highest court of the United States.
Biden’s America …
