    Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson Dazzles In Introduction To The Nation

    “There are so many other people I’d love to be able to address and to thank, but time is short, so let me end by sharing an interesting coincidence that has meant a great deal to me over the years. As it happens, I share a birthday with the first black woman ever to be appointed as a federal judge, the Honorable Constance Baker Motley, we were born exactly 49 years to the day apart.

    Today, I proudly stand on Judge Motley’s shoulders, sharing not only her birthday but also her steadfast and courageous commitment to equal justice under law. Judge Motley her life and career has been a true inspiration to me as I have pursued this professional path, and if I am fortunate enough to be confirmed as the next associate justice of the Supreme Court Of The United States, I can only hope that my life and career, my love of this country and the constitution and my commitment to upholding the rule of law in the sacred principles upon which this great nation was founded will inspire future generations of Americans.

    President Biden had a very talented group of potential nominees to choose from, but he appears to have made a great choice. Judge Jackson discussed her commitment to upholding the rule of law, and she also mentioned the scared principles of the nation.”

    Good evening TODVille.

    I am always so happy to read everyone’s post, link, or comment. I hope you are all fine and doing well. We need to hang on strong particularly in the midst of so much: the slow pace of the 1/6 work which I hope will tie a certain actor to the failed coup; Putin’s pipe dream to reverse history and reinstate an imperial Russia; the implosion of the GOP and the Trumpian pandemic that hit the political right and flat-out infected the brains of so many; the calculating conduct of Manchin and Sinema, etc… There is enough to feel cynical but we ought to remain focused on the goal even as they put more obstacles to stop President Biden’s agenda.

    I am so pleased with his choice for the Supreme Court and hope her confirmation will be successful.

    Wishing you a great weekend.

    Statement by Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Japan’s Announcement to Hold Russia Accountable

    FEBRUARY 27, 2022

    We welcome Japan’s announcement today that it will stand with the European Commission, France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States to isolate Russia from the international financial system and our economies. Following Japan’s announcement, the entire G7 now supports disconnecting selected Russian banks from SWIFT, restrictions on the Russian Central Bank, and sanctioning key Russian leaders, including President Putin. Prime Minister Kishida and the Government of Japan have been leaders in condemning President Putin’s attack on Ukraine and we will continue working closely together to impose further severe costs and make Putin’s war of choice a strategic failure.

    “One of the most important things that came out of this tragedy was the activation of an entire new generation of civil rights leaders.” That was part of what President Barack Obama told The Times when we asked him what the killing of Trayvon Martin, 10 years ago Saturday, meant for the United States, the movement for civil rights and for him personally.”

    Ukraine’s Zelensky calls on “citizens of world” to join in fight against Russia

    In a statement on Sunday, he accused the Russian army of killing civilians and praised Ukrainians for having the courage to defend themselves.

    “Ukrainians have manifested the courage to defend their homeland and save Europe and its values from a Russian onslaught. This is not just Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. This is the beginning of a war against Europe, against European structures, against democracy, against basic human rights, against a global order of law, rules and peaceful coexistence,” Zelensky said.

    The new record low for the Russian currency comes after some of the country’s banks were banned from using the Swift international payment system.

    On Sunday, Russia’s central bank appealed for calm amid fears that there could be a run on the country’s banks.
