LIVE DAY 3: Hon. Ketanji Brown Jackson SCOTUS Confirmation Hearing

LIVE DAY 3: Hon. Ketanji Brown Jackson SCOTUS Confirmation Hearing

Brown Jackson allowed her wokeness to slip late Tuesday night.

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson faced 12 hours of questioning on Tuesday. She ended the night not being able to provide a definition of “woman” or knowing when life begins.

Welcome to Day 3, which will likely last another 12 hours.

WSJ’s points from Day 2:

  • Constitution originalism is her judicial philosophy
  • Jackson stayed away from court-packing, same-sex marriage, abortion
  • Republicans went after her representation of Guantanomo Bay detainees, child pornography cases

Jackson Won’t Answer Hawley

Lindsey Graham Goes After Jackson’s Sentencing in Child Pornography

From WSJ:

During the question-and-answer session, Mr. Graham argued for harsh sentences to deter viewing of child pornography and challenged Judge Jackson over the notion that people who collected illegal images on the internet could get potentially lighter sentences than people who collected it through the mail. He repeatedly talked over Judge Jackson’s answers, with Mr. Durbin then asking him repeatedly to let her finish her answer. Mr. Graham countered that she was filibustering.

“Your view of how to deter child pornography is not my view,” Mr. Graham said to Judge Jackson. “I think you are doing it wrong and every judge who does what you are doing is making it easier for the children to be exploited.”

Judge Jackson has defended her sentencing record against accusations she was too lenient, pointing in part to the need for discretion in such cases.

“What we’re trying to do is be rational in our dealing with some of the most horrible kinds of behavior,” she said. “This is what our justice system is about.”

Well, after sampling a couple, I think this box is rotten.

I just love her pancakes, but I do wish Biden had nominated Mrs Butterworth instead.

This woman is lying like a rug. She’s up there telling whopper after whopper and unfortunately, no one has the courage to call her out on in. She can’t define a woman because she’s not a ‘biologist?’ She’s not certain what critical race theory is other than it’s only taught in some law schools? She was unaware it was an integral part of the curriculum of the school in which she was a board member (and I believe her kids attended)?

    According to the Bee, today’s hearings were postponed when Ms. Jackson was unable to identify a Ladies Room.

So until a qualified biologist or she herself clarifies the issue, she should no longer be referred to as the first black “woman” nominated to the Supreme Court. Safer to use the CRT term “first bleeder of the African-American persuasion” to be nominated.

Dark days for women (whatever THAT is).

Setting her obvious far left ideology aside, it’s clear from these hearings she’s not the legal savant many made her out to be. IANAL and even I’ve heard her make a couple of comments that were simply factually inaccurate; she got the jurisprudence wrong.

I don’t like Kagan. But, there is no questioning Kagan’s competence as a lawyer. She’s hugely intelligent. I don’t like Sotomayor…and that dislike is exacerbated by the fact that Sotomayor isn’t up to the job, intellectually. Brown Jackson sure feels like she’s going to comfortably walk in Sotomayor’s shoes.

Where are the libs who thought Harriet Miers was unqualified?

    Milhouse in reply to Ira. | March 23, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    As I recall it, the opposition to Miers was mainly from conservatives. Certainly the opposition that doomed her nomination was from conservatives.

This person of unknown sex is so dumb, it should not be a judge in any court.

I tried to go into these two days with an open mind, after a day and half there is no way I could support her. Her claims of lack of knowledge of current events is astonishing, her claim of lack of knowledge of the Kavanaugh hearing is equally astounding.
Considering she has a surgeon for a husband her lack of knowledge of even the most simple health / medical issues is amazing, what do these two talk about when they are together?
Sorry she is out of touch, lying or some combination of the two,

Talk about an embarrassment, can’t even answer the simplest of questions…which was the Dem’s plan: “You’re in, just tap dance through the questions and we’ll make sure to get you the seat…for life.”

‘Course, if some guy identifying as a gal suddenly came out of the woodwork, and as a guy had clerked for this Lightweight but says he was repeatedly sexually harassed by Ms. Jackson…we’d be watching Dem’s do cartwheels to save her. Then again, maybe she could just state that Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays she identifies as George Floyd, cover all the bases.

She is a train wreck about to happen

at least she admitted that she was a woman today, huge advancement

Ask her to define “racism”. And ask her if Elon Musk is an African-American

Proof that Affirmative Action puts unqualified blacks in positions at which they cannot or will not actually perform.

in todays questioning of character witnesses, Whitehouse is asking the Alabama Attorney General about Jan.6 and his possible involvement.
We all know he is a buffoon but how the so called good people keep him in office is beyond belief.

Confirmation hearing? Don’t you mean rubber stamp?
