Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer to leave the Court…

By now, almost everybody has heard that Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer, the oldest member of the Court at 83, has announced that he will retire at the end of the current Supreme Court term, after 27 years on the Court.

As one of the Court’s most progressive members, along with Associate Justices Kagan and Sotomayor, there is no doubt that Breyer will be replaced by a Biden nominee who is, at least, as progressive or possibly even more progressive than Breyer.

While it won’t tip the Court's ideological balance, it does make a mockery of the idea that Supreme Court Justices are unbiased arbiters of the U.S. Constitution and disputes between the States.

“We the People” are about to be screwed once again…


Instead of choosing one of the best and brightest jurists with a record of outstanding jurisprudence, we are likely to find Biden’s choice reflects the progressive communist democrat’s support of identity politics. Where color, ethnicity, and gender trump knowledge and competence.

Let the speculation begin…

Since Biden declared that his first Supreme Court nominee would be a black woman during his 2020 campaign, his choices appear to be limited. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki: “The president has stated and reiterated his commitment to nominating a black woman to the Supreme Court and certainly stands by that.”

The ultimate horror scenario – Biden solves many of his problems by nominating an incompetent, feckless, cackling Kamala Harris to the position. Her legal qualifications are marginal, but she is bi-racial and a declared woman. With the Vice President slot empty, Biden appoints the next President of the United States as he is likelyto step down prior to the end of his term. 

The unthinkable…

Biden nominates an Asian-American with familial ties to the Communist Chinese Party.

Almost as bad  -- Stacy Abrams, the boisterous racist who believes she is Georgia’s legitimate governor. Her sister, Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner,  is said to be the better nominee and appears to be in the mix.

More traditional nominees…

  • US Circuit Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, 51 – she replaced Merrick Garland, now the US attorney general, and her position usually is on the path to the Supreme Court. Considering the wide dislike of Garland, she may end up as our next Attorney General if she is not appointed to the Court. Her previous confirmation hearing was supported by RINO Senators Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
  • US District Court Judge J. Michelle Childs, 55 – said to be the favorite of Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) the Majority Whip and the third-ranking Democrat in the United States House of Representative.
  • California Supreme Court Justice Leondra Kruger, 45 – an accomplished jurist.
  • Sherrilyn Ifill, 59 -- the outgoing head of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and a nationally recognized expert on voting rights and judicial selection. Like the late Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg who came from the ACLU, her progressive credentials are impeccable.

Lesser names floated by partisan groups…

  • Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner – the Stacy Abrams choice.
  • Circuit Judge Eunice Lee – a Chuck Schumer favorite.
  • Circuit Judge Candace Jackson-Akiwumi – A Dick Durbin favorite from corrupt Chicago.
  • District Judge Wilhelmina "Mimi" Wright – an Amy Klobuchar favorite.
  • Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) – not black.
  • California Attorney General Xavier Becerra – neither black nor female.

Bottom line…

Funny, Biden's exclusionary policy limiting nominees to a specific color and gender would be illegal under employment law.  Again, the progressive communist Democrats want to impose their toxic ideology on the Supreme Court. This is a dangerous time when the progressive communist Democrats openly eliminate Whites, Jews, Asians, Hispanics, and others from the selection pool and consideration on qualifications alone.

What the progressive communist Democrats really want is a communist activist who is fine with disrespecting the Constitution and the destruction of America from within. Even though the media will label them "moderates" or "centrist."

No matter which nominee is chosen by the thoroughly corrupt Joe Biden, “We the People” are screwed as the sanctity of the U.S. Constitution continues to fade.

By the way, I think it was highly disrespectful of the White House to leak Justice Breyer's decision before he publicly announced his decision. Of course, it was leaked so that the propaganda machine could be spun-up to support the improper restrictions on the selection and decision-making process.

AFT Partners with NewsGuard to Combat Misinformation Online

National Partnership Will Roll Out Crucial News Literacy Tool to Tens of Millions of US Students and Families

The American Federation of Teachers has launched a national partnership with a leading anti-misinformation tool NewsGuard to protect and champion legitimate journalism and fact-based reporting and to help educators and their students navigate a sea of online disinformation.

Under the terms of the pathbreaking licensing agreement, coinciding with National News Literacy Week, the AFT’s 1.7 million members, tens of millions of kids they teach, and their families, can now receive free, real-time “traffic light” news ratings and detailed “Nutrition Label” reviews, via a licensed copy of NewsGuard’s browser extension, whenever they search the web for news and information. 

For years, educators have fought battles against suspect sourcing, with their students often misled by dubious outlets and spam sites posing as “news.” NewsGuard offers a practical solution, alerting students and educators to those sites while also providing a valuable lesson in media literacy. <Source>

A few unpleasant truths…

(1)  This is the American Federation of Teachers, the union that fought for more money, more benefits, and more political activism outside of school activities. The same union that continues to keep schools closed and teachers on a paid vacation. A union headed by a committed lesbian political activist, Randi Weingarten, who embraces Marxist teachings and particularly the type of virulent critical race theory that pits students against students based on the color of their skin.  The AFT is also complicit in turning out decades of ill-equipped, ill-informed functional illiterates trained in political activism and sexual perversion.

(2)  NewsGuard, that organization that purports to protect your children from misinformation, appears to be using the same “trained” (i.e., “woke”) journalists who fed you narratives, not news. NewsGuard is headed by Steven Brill, the Yale Law School attorney that founded The American Lawyer magazine and Court TV. There is little doubt that Brill, like most elite attorneys, contributes to progressive democrat politicians and causes.

Some of the advisors on Brill’s team should raise red flags…

  • Michael Hayden: former head of the NSA head and architect of a national electronic surveillance system on US citizens.
  • Arne Duncan: former Secretary of Education for President Obama. This man signed a formal educational partnership agreement with the Peoples' Republic of China.
  • Tom Ridge: first Secretary of Homeland Security.
  • Kate O’Sullivan: general manager for digital diplomacy of Microsoft.
  • Richard Stengel: former Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy during the Obama administration.
  • Jimmy Wales: co-founder of Wikipedia.

These are not arbiters of “misinformation”; they are the swamp propagandists who created much of the misinformation and narratives in their previous positions – and it is unlikely that the leopard can change its spots. And most journalists are already suspect; their viewpoint, for the most part, has already been tainted by Marxist methodology, peer pressure, and the requirement to play to get paid.

(3)  Let us not forget that a large portion of federal funding comes from the government – with a vested interest in pushing a political narrative and bamboozling citizens on behalf of the administration, the bureaucracy, and the special interests.

The end goal – big bucks from those who provide disinformation…

Let us not forget that Microsoft, the owner of LinkedIn, has just censored a user that dared to review Peter Schweitzer’s latest, well-sourced book…

Microsoft’s LinkedIn Censors Post of Peter Schweizer’s ‘Red-Handed’ Criticizing Big Tech Ties to China

Microsoft-owned LinkedIn censored a Breitbart News story containing a book excerpt from Red-Handed, Peter Schweizer's new bombshell investigation into American elites’ ties to communist china, one that focused specifically on Big Tech’s ties to the communist regime.

But when a LinkedIn user tried to share it on the platform, along with a post condemning China for genocidal policies, LinkedIn removed the post for violating its “community policies.”

It’s not the first time LinkedIn has been caught censoring criticism of Communist China on its platform. In October, the Microsoft-owned platform attracted widespread bipartisan condemnation after it censored an Axios reporter who had referenced her own work exposing China’s internment camps in Xinjiang province on her profile.

Now LinkedIn is censoring posts that expose Big Tech’s own links to the authoritarian regime in China. Microsoft, which owns LinkedIn, is exposed in Schweizer’s book for working with the Chinese military on artificial intelligence research.<Source>

Bottom line…

Without contrarian opinions and dissent in the world of ideas, all that is left is propaganda from the government and its special interests.

As with most browser extensions, they often contain proprietary tracking code that covertly surveils your behavior in the guide of providing a free or useful benefit.

We are so screwed.
