What’s worse, the Democrat Party infecting our nation’s highest court with insidious leftism using radical activist judges, or the Republican Party supporting their efforts?
We will leave that for you to decide.
One thing is certain: Lawmakers within the Republican Party are by no means representing modern conservative values, especially the RINO coalition in the Senate.
What even qualifies a Republican anymore?
As far as Sens. Mitt Romney, Liza Murkowski, and Susan Collins are concerned it’s hard to tell. They’re stuck in the war-mongering state of the GOP’s past which certainly no longer resonates with the average conservative voter.
Two more members of the RINO coalition announced their decision to vote for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, Joe Biden’s nominee for Supreme Court.
Sens. Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski joined Susan Collins to pave the way for Judge Jackson’s confirmation at the exact moment when Republicans should be fighting for conservative values.
Their announcements on Monday indicate that Joe Biden’s first pick to the high court, whose nomination they helped advance beyond the Senate Judiciary Committee after a deadlock vote, will be confirmed with at least a 53-47 vote. A simple majority is all that is needed, and all Democrats and independents are expected to back Jackson, who would be the first black woman Supreme Court justice.

The decision marks a turn for Romney, who voted against Jackson’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in 2021.
After multiple in-depth conversations with Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson and deliberative review of her record and recent hearings, I will support her historic nomination to be an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Read my full statement here: https://t.co/hlBaj7nbus

The 22-member Senate Judiciary Committee, which consists of 11 Republicans and 11 Democrats, voted on party lines on Monday. The Senate voted Monday evening to begin debate on the nomination of Jackson to the Supreme Court with a 53-47 vote. Collins, Romney, and Murkowski voted in favor of proceeding to debate the nomination.
Most Republicans felt uneasy about Judge Jackson’s judicial record of shielding convicted child pornographers from maximum sentences. This became a brief point of contention during the Senate confirmation hearings, but Republicans were quickly smeared by liberal media for daring to question a black woman.
Furthermore, Judge Jackson has a silly little habit of using Critical Race Theory training in her judicial practice — another sore spot for Republicans.
Even if Jackson isn’t able to define a ‘woman’, it’s become more and more likely that she will be the next one on the Supreme Court.
