It's Clear What Republicans Need to Do for Ketanji Brown Jackson

I don’t think I need to tell you, dear reader, that the Supreme Court is one of the most important entities in the United States. Its power is such that it can make an unconstitutional law legal by manipulating the meaning of some of its aspects.

The Affordable Care Act (or Obamacare) was passed that way, with Chief Justice Roberts doing some Olympic-level mental gymnastics to make the individual mandate penalty for not buying into Obamacare into a tax. Roberts had come to that conclusion because he thought it would be better for an incoming Republican congress (and what he thought was an incoming Republican president) to invalidate the ACA, not the court.

His gamble failed and Obamacare became the law of the land.

It was a moment that shocked the nation and set political parties on a path to great change. The left would become even more draconian, empowered by the fact that it had effectively enacted real socialism in America, and the right would find itself pushing back against the left and lukewarm Republicans harder than ever, culminating in the election of President Donald Trump.

It just goes to show you that the Supreme Court can affect a lot of change in this nation and that all it takes is one justice to change the course of history. If one justice can do that, then we need to be very choosy about who we set in these high seats.

I think it’s pretty clear at this point that Ketanji Brown Jackson is not someone who should be in one of those high seats.

As we’ve been covering here on RedState relentlessly, Jackson’s approach to ruling from the bench is as odd as it is dangerous. She can’t or won’t define what a woman is and seems to have some very disturbing views about pedophilia.

Cruz was recently interviewed by Fox News about Jackson and highlighted one of her most unsettling rulings.

“One of the most egregious cases was a case, the Hawkins case, where you had a defendant who had graphic videos of little boys, eleven years old, ten years old, as young as eight years old, being violently sexually assaulted by adult males, and she gave that defendant a slap on the wrist of three months in jail,” Cruz said. “The guidelines provided for ten years; the prosecutors wanted a long, long sentence and she gave that defendant three months.”

“I think the American people are concerned whether they will have a Supreme Court Justice that’s going to follow the law or we’re going to have a Supreme Court Justice that is looking for loopholes to let violent criminals out of jail,” Cruz added.

The question we should be asking ourselves is if this is how low Jackson is willing to go for one of the vilest and dangerous crimes in America, then what else is she willing to do that would erode at the very foundations of our nation?

There can be only one course for Republicans when it comes to Jackson, and Cruz said it simply while saying it best when asked if he would vote for Jackson.


It’s disturbing, however, that Cruz noted that there may very well be a couple of Republicans that choose to vote her in. At this point, Republicans shouldn’t have a doubt in their mind. This woman isn’t just dangerous, she’s disturbing. Her views clearly come from an incredibly hard-leftist place and has no business being a presence on the court.

Every Republican needs to vote “no” on Jackson without reservation. Without fail and without fear.
