As the war rages on in Ukraine, there are still serious problems and issues playing out here at home. None of them is bigger than the fight for gun rights and the left’s filling of the vacant Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) seat.
The seat is opening up, due to the retirement of Justice Stephen Breyer.
Up until recently, we only knew Joe Biden planned to make good on his promise to nominate a black woman to be the next SCOTUS justice. Now, we know who that black woman is and what she believes.
Biden Nominates Ketanji Brown Jackson for SCOTUS
On February 26, Biden announced he will be nominating Ketanji Brown Jackson to fill Breyer’s seat. With Biden’s support continuing to go down, there’s a definite chance Jackson gets defeated. Even some Democrats in purple states like West Virginia can’t afford to vote for Jackson.
Let’s face facts: the Democrats only have 49 senators on their side in the Senate. They can’t get the majority they need as long as Republicans hold strong, but that’s not a sure thing.
Here’s why it’s crucial, however…
Two years ago, I made the commitment to nominate the first Black woman to the Supreme Court. I sought a candidate with exceptional credentials, unimpeachable character, and unwavering dedication to the rule of law.
I’m proud to nominate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Meet Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson
Jackson was born in 1970 in Washington, D.C., and grew up mostly in Miami. She went to Harvard where she enjoyed significant success and later took up clerkships, including one under Breyer.
Jackson rose to become a district judge in DC and is on a leading board at Harvard.
Jackson has deep motivations for wanting judicial reform, with her own uncle going to jail for life when she was a young woman. He was sentenced to life for possession of cocaine; she tried her best to help him get out of the sentence, with the life sentence eventually canceled by President Obama.
Jackson’s past includes leading protests at Harvard because one student there put up a Confederate flag in his window. She also has a long history of trying to get criminals off and have their sentences lessened.
It might have started with her uncle, but it certainly didn’t end there. Jackson is well-loved by the left because she supports soft-on-crime policies and is more than willing to trumpet the anti-gun rhetoric of Biden and the left, as her past rulings show.
She is a dangerous stumbling block for patriots if she takes up a seat on SCOTUS.
Today, President Biden nominated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, one of our nation’s brightest legal minds to the Supreme Court.

The Bottom Line
It’s crucial that patriots contact their senators and ensure they will be voting no on Jackson.
Regardless of party affiliation, some Republicans have made nice noises about bipartisanship on this and that’s why you can’t assume an R next to your senator’s name is an automatic no vote on Jackson.
Let’s stand up for gun rights and make sure our SCOTUS doesn’t get infiltrated by far-left, soft-on-crime, and hard-on-guns policies.
