Today, all 50 Democratic Senators voted to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to join Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court.
Thomas is the most conservative justice on the Court. Judge Jackson is expected to be among the most (“liberal”) of the Justices, and it’s agreed by every Court watcher that Thomas needs to retire so he can work without ceasing to get off the Court and work full time for his wife’s extreme radical far-right causes.
He is embroiled in controversy because his wife, Ginni Thomas, is a political extremist who advocated for the January 6 effort to destroy our government; but her husband has so far refused to recuse himself from participation in any of the Januray 6 cases before the Court.
Mitch McConnell voted against her nomination on the flimsy ground that she is an activist judge.
“Activist judge” is a mere excuse for disliking a judicial nominee if the senator voting against her doesn’t like her rulings.
Because of McConnell's strident opposition to her for SCOTUS, it must be noted that not one, not two, but no less than three Republican Senators (Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Mitt Romney) voted for KBJ.
But McConnell, who seeks to ingratiate himself with Donald Trump, has expelled Murkowski, Collins, and Romney from the Republican Party for contradicting him.
Which means that, according to our Chief Legislative Correspondent, associate solitary reporter Melisa Smith, McConnell, acting with the full support of RNC Chairlady Ronna Romney McDaniel, McConnell was fully in his rights in expelling Romney, Murkowski, and Collins from the Republican Party. Senator Romney is the uncle of Romney McDaniel.
Romney McDaniel, a former Michigan GOP Chair, works for Donald Trump, but Senator Romney does not.
Associate solitary reporter Keith Coleman just texted us to let us know that Romney McDaniel fully agrees that Romney, Collins, and Murkowski must be expelled from the Republican Party for going against Trump’s wishes.
