President Joe Biden announced the appointment of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court today, appeasing left-wing special interest groups and fulfilling a campaign promise of using race and sex to determine his nominee. Heritage President Kevin Roberts made the following statement:
“There are few decisions more important for a president than the selection of a Supreme Court nominee. President Biden has utterly failed, starting with his criteria for making this appointment.
“Ketanji Brown Jackson is the most radical judge ever nominated for a seat on the Supreme Court. A review of her record and judicial philosophy reveals a deeply troubling pattern and raises questions about her ability to be a fair and impartial judge.
“Her limited judicial record reveals that Jackson has consistently ignored the Constitution, twisting the law to favor certain outcomes. Judges should play a limited role in our government, yet Jackson’s far-left supporters want her to impose a political agenda that invents new rights or erases rights she doesn’t like.
“Based on the information we already know, senators should reject her for this lifetime appointment.”
