    Roe v. Wade protesters in South Carolina clashed with police on Saturday as thousands continued their outrage against the Supreme Court's decision to end the landmark abortion ruling by holding demonstrations in Washington, D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and all across the country. Protests erupted on Friday following the court's ruling to overtun women's federal right to abortions, with 26 states expected to futher restirct or outight ban abortions. Outrage over the decision is expected to carry on over the weekend through the chaotic protests, as Capitol Police said two people were arrested on Saturday for throwing paint...
  • How To Cut Crime In The Murder-Capital Of America (Jackson, Mississippi)

    In the first week of May there were six homicides in Jackson, Mississippi. How many more will there be before the end of the month? Last year Jackson had the highest homicide rate of any city in America, with 155 homicides. To put that grisly statistic in perspective, that was about the same number of homicides as happened in Atlanta, a city with almost four times the population. As a recent arrival in the city, what shocks me is not the murder rate, but the attitude of those who make endless excuses for it. Some officials invoke that catch-all excuse...

    Supreme Court Justice-designate Ketanji Brown Jackson, who was confirmed by the Senate last month, said Monday that she was “shocked” by the leak of a draft decision that showed the high court is on the verge of overturning Roe v. Wade — but declined to speak out against an outbreak of demonstrations at the homes of her future colleagues. “Everybody who is familiar with the court and the way in which it works was shocked by that,” Jackson told the Washington Post of the unprecedented disclosure of the draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito. “Such a departure from normal...

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that Republican senators did not have the “humanity” to say judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Senate confirmation vote was “historic.” Sharpton said, “As great as it is today, for black women, for women, and for black people, we all couldn’t celebrate that together. They didn’t even have enough humanity to say this is historic. I think that that is very telling. and she comes on the bench in a divided time, giving hope to people that’s going to have to fight those divisions.”

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) claimed that more Senate Republicans would have voted to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court than did if her sentencing history had not been brought to light. Cruz, speaking on the most recent episode of his Verdict podcast, said that besides the three Republican senators — Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Mitt Romney (R-UT) — who voted for Jackson, more would have voted for her if her sentencing history was not exposed.

    President Biden on Friday singled out the three Republican senators who voted to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, praising them for setting aside partisanship in what has become a divisive process. “Not withstanding the harassment and attacks in the hearings, I always believed that a bipartisan vote was possible,” Biden said at an event with Jackson to celebrate her confirmation. “And I hope I don’t get them in trouble, and I mean it sincerely, but I want to thank three Republicans who voted for Judge Jackson.”

    Judge Jackson and the Great Posthumanist Reset Joe Biden and the Democrats pitched her as a Black woman. But that is a canard. Ketanji Brown Jackson is a Trojan horse for anti-humanism. During the nomination hearings for the Biden administration’s Supreme Court Justice nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, Senate Judiciary Committee member Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn) asked Judge Jackson what should have been an easy question.On Tuesday, March 22, after Judge Jackson had deflected two of the Senator’s previous questions relating to a ruling by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the “enduring” significance of differences between the two sexes,...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) nor his office could explain to Breitbart News why Utah’s junior senator opposed making Ketanji Brown Jackson a federal circuit judge last year and then voiced his support for her to become a Supreme Court Justice this year. Romney joined the 43 other Senate Republicans in 2021 to oppose Jackson’s bid to become a circuit judge for the District of Columbia Circuit.

    The Nation’s justice correspondent Elie Mystal said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that Republicans who call Ketanji Brown Jackson pro-pedophile were intentionally putting her life in danger. They were discussing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) tweet claiming that Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Susan Collins (R-ME) and Mitt Romney (R-UT) were “pro-pedophile,” anchor Joy Reid said, “These terms, indoctrination, grooming, predator, accusing innocent people of being pedophiles to or being soft on pedophiles, it’s all a very specific trigger for a group that is sinking its teeth into our political discourse. Folks like Marjorie Taylor Greene know that. There’s a reason...

    Senate Democrats, backed by three GOP senators, voted on Monday night to break a deadlock on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination, paving the way for her to be confirmed by the end of the week. Senators voted 53-47 to formally discharge Jackson’s nomination to the full Senate. It’s the first time the Senate has had to take the procedural step for a Supreme Court nominee since 1853. GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Mitt Romney (Utah) voted with Democrats to make Jackson’s nomination available for a full Senate vote.

    A recent letter backing Ketanji Brown Jackson for the Supreme Court rattled off many of her supporters’ oft-stated reasons she should be confirmed — her top-notch academic credentials, her support from police groups, her expansive experience in the law. But this particular endorsement, written by 16 law professors from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, added another element of Jackson’s record that has not been as frequently discussed. “Though we do not believe that religious faith should be a test for any federal office, as faculty at a law school whose sponsoring church endured persecution by the federal government, we...

    In the eight child-porn cases that came before her court, former D.C. District Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson heard horrifying details of “sadomasochistic” torture of young kids — including “infants and toddlers” — yet challenged the disturbing evidence presented by prosecutors and disregarded their prison recommendations to give the lightest possible punishments in each case, according to transcripts of sentencing hearings obtained by the Post. In some cases, she even apologized to some of the kiddie-porn perverts for having to follow the statutes, which she called “substantially flawed.” Over and over, the records reveal, Jackson made excuses for the sex...

The resolution comes after a year since Harris was appointed to the role and after Jackson’s visit to the southern border this week. “It is past time for Joe Biden to remove her from the ‘Border Czar’ role and appoint someone who will put Americans’ interests first.

  • Judge dismisses lawsuit over Obama Presidential Center location in Chicago’s Jackson Park; open space group vows to continue legal fight (the locals still don't want it)

    A lawsuit that aimed to stop the Obama Presidential Center from being built in Chicago’s historic Jackson Park has been dismissed by a federal judge. The crux of Protect Our Parks’ complaint is that under regulatory statutes, federal agencies should have considered relocating the proposed Obama center site entirely to avoid damage to the environment, according to the lawsuit. The city and Obama Foundation officials have said federal agencies closed the final review into the project because they determined the Obama center’s construction and nearby roadway fixes would not pose a “significant impact” on the environment - a finding the...

    Maine Sen. Susan Collins said Tuesday she will vote to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson, giving Democrats at least one Republican vote and all but assuring that Jackson will become the first Black woman on the Supreme Court. Collins said in a statement Tuesday that she met with Jackson a second time after four days of hearings last week and decided that “she possesses the experience, qualifications, and integrity to serve as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court.” “I will, therefore, vote to confirm her to this position,” Collins said. Her support gives Democrats at least a one-vote cushion in...
