Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson – Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, is being put through the paces by Senators during her confirmation hearing. She has been called to answer as to why she has made certain statements and judgements on very serious issues.
During her appearance in front Congress, Judge Jackson dodged straightforward questions, when Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arizona asked whether or not the United States should “strengthen or weaken sentences for child pornographers,”
“Should the United States strengthen or weaken sentences for child pornographers?” Cotton asked.
Jackson responded by saying, “Senator, that is not a simple question, and the reason is because what this country does in terms of penalties is in Congress’s province.”
“You all decide. You decide what the penalties are,” Jackson continued. “You decide what the factors are that judges use to sentence. If you determine that any set of penalties is insufficient, then it is in your purview to make that determination.”
“There are many crimes that Congress has determined warrant mandatory minimum penalties, warrant other kinds of penalties, and that is in your purview to determine,” the judge added.
Sen. Cotton was visibly stunned by her non-answer saying, “I have to say, judge, I think whether or not we should strengthen or weaken sentences for child pornographers is a pretty simple question, but I’ll move on.”
It was a simple question and it has a simple answer, that one should be able to come up with instantly – yes, sentences for sex crimes against children should be strengthened, absolutely.
Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO), raised questions about Judge Jackson’s record before the confirmation hearing began. During an interview on Fox & Friends, Hawley stated that Jackson’s record shows she has been consistently soft on crime and “lenient” on child sex offenders.
Senator Hawley said the Senate Judiciary Committee, wanted to know, that Jackson will protect America’s children if she is confirmed to SCOTUS.
Jackson, also refused to confirm if she would oppose packing of the Supreme Court. Jackson instead she would stay in her “lane” and used that as the excuse to not answer the question.
If alarm bells aren’t ringing yet, they may get started soon, as Jackson has a background of radical left-wing diatribes.
In a recent poll conducted by Politico/Morning Consult, revealed that only 47 percent of voters want Judge Jackson confirmed to the Supreme Court.
Almost 19 percent opposed her confirmation and she doesn’t fare any better with Independent voters. Independents had only 39 percent support for Jackson’s confirmation, while 43 percent had no opinion on the matter.
Judge Jackson’s approval rating is less than Sonia Sotomayor, a SCOTUS nominee picked by former President Barrack Obama, who received a result of 54-28 approval to disapproval.
One reason Jackson’s approval is so low, is because people are currently distracted by the chaos currently happening within the Biden administration and the rest of the world.
In the past year, Americans have had to endure rising inflation, rising fuel costs, rising living costs, all topped off with a huge dollop of Covid and the fallout that brings.
The Politico poll had used a sample size of around 2005 voters, with a margin of error of 2 percentage points. It is unsurprising that Jackson’s approval is so dismal, Americans are tired of radical leftists.
