Are we living in an America our Founding Fathers would recognize?
If our Founding Fathers were alive today, how would they react to Americans being asked to show a vaccination card to order food at a restaurant? How would they respond to young adults at the prime of their lives being forced to accept an experimental jab as a condition to getting a college education they’re paying for? How would they respond to a Supreme Court Justice, whose job it is to interpret the Constitution without political bias, planning his departure from the court based on the political views of the current President and majority in the Senate? And finally, how would they react to a “president” using the level of melalin in an individual’s skin and their genitalia to choose the next Supreme Court Justice?
Yesterday afternoon, liberal-leaning Justice Stephen Breyer announced that he would be retiring from the US Supreme Court. Shortly after his announcement became public, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stood with a straight face and told Americans, “The president has stated, and reiterated, his commitment to nominating a Black woman to the Supreme Court and certainly stands by that.”

Is this the Democrat’s idea of “blind justice?”
Here are the six individuals who fit both the melanin and genitalia requirements set forth by Joe Biden and those behind the scenes, who will likely choose one of them to be the next Supreme Court Justice. In addition to being black and female, all six women were nominated by either Barack Obama or Joe Biden.
Even if Quid-pro-Joe wanted to choose a white, Hispanic, or Asian, he couldn’t, because of a campaign promise he made to Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), who offered his critical endorsement to Biden during the Democratic presidential primaries in return for a promise to nominate a black female Supreme Court Justice should the opportunity present itself.
Daily Mail reports – Biden performed poorly in the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primaries and needed a boost in South Carolina in February 2020 to help clinch the nomination to take on Donald Trump.
Clyburn, who previously chaired the Congressional Black Caucus, offered his endorsement but with a caveat – that the then-candidate publicly pledge to place a black woman on the Supreme Court should he get the chance in his tenure.
Journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes detail in their book Lucky that Clyburn pow-wowed with Biden during a break in the Democratic debate on February 25, 2020. The lawmaker was becoming increasingly frustrated that Biden had not promised on the debate stage to nominate a black female Supreme Court justice after speaking on the issue the night before.
South Carolina US District Court Judge J. Michelle Childs seems to have the backing of Clyburn, who represents South Carolina in the House. Childs, 55, also already appears to be in Biden’s favor as he nominated her last month to the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, where the nomination is still pending.
Clyburn seemed confident on CNN Wednesday that Childs could win the favor of Republicans.
‘I know that Michelle Childs will have the support of several Republicans, including the two Republican senators from South Carolina,’ referring to Tim Scott and Lindsey Graham.
The Left likes to argue that President Bush selected Clarence Thomas as a quota pick to replace Justice Thurgood Marshall, the nation’s first black Justice.
This is 100% false and insulting.
Daily Mail – President George H.W. Bush never pledged to appoint a judge based on his race. He recognized Clarence Thomas, above all else, for his character and his commitment to the rule of law.
When Justice William Brennan announced his retirement in June 1990, President George H.W. Bush wanted to select Thomas, who had just been appointed to the D.C. Circuit in March of 1990.
Though a big fan of then-Judge Thomas, White Counsel Boyden Gray advised Bush against nominating Thomas for the Brennan seat until Thomas could construct a judicial record. When Justice Marshall announced his retirement the following year, Bush announced Thomas as his nominee.
Far from identity politics, Bush’s selection of Thomas was based on the merits.
What the president saw was that Thomas had truly delved into the founding principles and structure of our government, had actually worked in all three branches of government and understood its power to undermine liberty, understood and believed in the proper role of the courts in our republican system, and most important, had a backbone of steel.
Thomas had an amazing personal story, born into poverty in the segregated South, raised by grandparents in the Catholic Church, briefly turning his back on that to embrace black nationalism, then returning to his grandparents’ values; Thomas was a man who would never submit or wilt.
