The liberal SCOTUS nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson has been raising eyebrows with her inability to define what a woman is and her lenient stance on pedophiles.
The liberal SCOTUS nominee, selected by former vice president Joe Biden, has had some rather sketchy responses to important questions during her confirmation hearings in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Ketanji Brown Jackson refused to answer when she was asked what the word woman meant on the second day of the hearings.
Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., pressed Jackson on transgender issues Tuesday night.
“Do you agree that schools should teach children that they can choose their gender?” Blackburn asked after she read a quote from Jackson regarding Georgetown Day School, the private school on whose board Brown serves.
“Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?” Blackburn asked.
“Can I provide a definition?” Jackson repeated the question.
“Mmhmm, yeah,” Blackburn confirmed.
“I can’t,” Jackson replied.
“You can’t?” Blackburn asked.
“Not — in this context, I’m not a biologist,” Jackson laughed.
“So you believe the meaning of the word ‘woman’ is so unclear and controversial that you can’t give me a definition?” Blackburn continued to press.
“Senator, in my works a judge, what I do is I address disputes,” Jackson pushed back, suggesting that she could only provide a decision based on arguments and the law. “If there is a dispute about a definition, people make arguments and I look at the law and I decide, so — I’m not —”
“The fact that you can’t give me a straight answer about something as fundamental as what a woman underscores the dangers of the kind of progressive education that we are hearing about,” Blackburn continued.
This is a woman who wants a position as a SCOTUS. The Supreme Court is the highest court in the federal judiciary of the United States who oversees cases that have to deal with women’s rights. How can a judge, who can’t define what a woman is, oversee cases regarding women’s rights?
An important component of being able to do what is best for women is knowing what a woman is.
What’s funny is that her nomination was because of her skin color and the fact that she is a woman.
That’s not the worst of her confirmation hearing. It gets worse. The subject of her stance on pedophiles came up.
Senator Ted Cruz attended Harvard Law School at the same time as Jackson. He used his legal expertise to grill his former classmate over her extraordinarily lenient sentencing record when it comes to sexual predators.
In every child pornography case – 10/10 – Jackson gave the mandatory minimum sentence that was allowed by law, and/or drastically reduced their jail time far below the prosecution’s recommendation.
As Cruz points out, that’s while she served in the Washington DC District Court, which has prosecutors who are substantially more ‘liberal’ than most areas in the country.
It’s not just in her judgments that she’s kind to the kiddy diddlers. Ketanji Brown Jackson’s HARVARD LAW REVIEW Article on being nicer to sex offenders
If she is confirmed to the Supreme Court that will be a sad day for America. She is about as radical as you can get in the liberal realm. Her stance on defining women does not bode well for someone who would potentially make major decisions when it comes to women’s rights. And the fact that she has such a soft spot for people who commit heinous acts against children. We’re supposed to protect the most vulnerable amongst us, and this woman thinks they have it too hard.
