    Yes, Ted. The #BlackWoman with whom you were on law review and who graduated from Harvard a year behind you is about to be a Supreme Court justice. The same week you’re fightin’ with airport staff cause you missed your flight back from spring break. Poor you.— Monique Pressley (@MoniquePressley) March 22, 2022

    Poor Lindsey. Judge KBJ is not gonna let him run over her nor be allowed to twist her words.

  24. March 23, 2022 at 12:00 pm

    Dan Rather wrote this about the KBJ hearings. I can’t say I share his optimism these days but in my desire to regain it, I thought I’d pass along and see what y’all think.

    Watching the confirmation hearings today for Ketanji Brown Jackson was a whipsaw of mixed emotions that cut to the very heart of the inconsistencies and chasms that have defined this nation since its founding.

    I felt indignant. And inspired.

    Embarrassed. And proud.

    Outraged. And hopeful.

    Through the lens of Judge Jackson, a Black woman who needs no qualifiers for her intelligence or qualifications, we can see an America that is aspirational. Here is the true definition of a patriot, a citizen who loves her nation even though it has not always loved her back, who believes in its better angels even when she has to face its ugliest impulses, who wants to fight for a more fair and inclusive polity from within the system and through the law. She sees the Constitution as a document of hope, even though that very document codified the enslavement of Black bodies.

    Then there were the Republicans on the dais. In their sanctimony, their disrespect, their posturing, their distortions, we can hear the echoes of the injustices of power that are also rooted in the same Constitution that gives Judge Jackson hope.

    Is there a better distillation of our nation’s inconsistencies than the spectacle we witnessed in these hearings?

    I will not delve into the specifics of the questioning. There will be plenty of other places where you can get the lowlights of the diatribes and the highlights of Judge Jackson’s careful answers. All of these scurrilous and disingenuous lines of argument are really about one thing: tearing down the nominee.

    The Republicans scoff at the accusations of racist overtones, and in so doing prove the point of this framing. I have seen these circumstances far too many times for them to be coincidental — the disrespect, the double standards, the innuendo, the winks and nods at a game for which everyone, and certainly Judge Jackson, knows the rules.

    I saw it with Jackie Robinson. And Dr. King. And Thurgood Marshall. And Barack Obama. And these were all men. Being a Black woman carries a whole other set of burdens. There was a quality to the tenor of their voices that anyone who has seen America’s race and gender dynamics play out knows all too well.

    Judge Jackson certainly does. And she knows she cannot act with the practiced histrionics of Brett Kavanaugh or the opaqueness of Amy Coney Barrett. The yardstick for measuring Judge Jackson has never been trotted out before in American history in this way.

    They questioned her intelligence with their ignorance.

    They challenged her temperament with their churlishness.

    They impugned her character with their lies and bombast.

    I know the many systemic challenges this nation faces, but in the end I cannot help but be left with hope. I have seen where this country once was. It looked and sounded a lot like those launching the diatribes. And I see where this country is going. There was a time not long ago when the nomination of a Black woman to the Supreme Court would have been unthinkable.

    I am not saying we cannot regress. We can. I am not saying that progress is assured. It is certainly not. But despite all the detours and delaying of justice that have marked our history, despite all the significant hurdles that remain, there is a reason why Judge Jackson can speak with such eloquence about a nation of law based on a Constitution forged in a furnace of inequity. It is because in these founding documents were seeds that if tended well could bear the fruit of progress. Her powerful rebuttal to the outrage on Capitol Hill lay in her unshakeable belief in America.

      Thank you, Gazelle, I feel some sense of relief and hope with this as well, things are in such turmoil, having someone with a long view background speak out offers a reminder there is Light beyond the darkness.

      And best wishes, many blessings on the new project, I’m sure it will be marvelous! I’m not online often these days… but check in when I can.

      ..wow Gazelle, fantastic, thank you.

      We can never thank KBJ enough for her dedication and vow to equal justice under law. The healing brilliance of Judge Kentani Brown Jackson shines out no matter what games are played. And then there’s her equanimity not to mention that smile. The first step is to clearly see the future we want…and here
      she is.

      Thanks for sharing that, Gazelle. Had not seen. If I am being 100% honest, I don’t have the hope that he does. IF the Dems can hold Congress this fall, I can say I do have more hope for us to move forward. If not, well……….little hope for our democracy.

    Whose side is Tucker Carlson on?
    Opinion by Dean Obeidallah

    “Do not believe propaganda. They tell you lies here!”
    These words appeared on a sign held up by a brave employee of one of Russia’s major state television networks during a live broadcast Monday in protest of Russia’s attack of Ukraine (the protester, Marina Ovsynnikova, was detained).

    It’s a stunning contrast to Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show, where he has amplified the Kremlin’s lies in support of its barbaric war against Ukraine.

    Republican strategist Ana Navarro — while co-hosting The View on Monday — suggested that the Department of Justice should investigate whether Carlson is a “foreign asset” who is “shilling for Putin.”

    While we can debate whether he is or isn’t, one thing is clear:
    Carlson is not on the side of democracy over autocracy.”

    While his army has fought tenaciously on the battlefields of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky has waged an information war on the capitals of the Western world.

    He’s addressed 10 parliaments in two weeks, receiving standing ovations everywhere.

    Live by video link from a besieged capital, wearing a green t-shirt and sporting several days of stubble, he often signs off with a clenched fist salute. As applause rings out, he disappears. He’s a man in a hurry, after all, with truly existential matters to attend to.

    “He knows how to embody the spirit of the nation,” says Jonathan Eyal, of the Royal United Services Institute. “Not only in speech, but also in the way he appears, in his backdrop, where he speaks.”

    The speeches, which began with an address to MPs in London on 3 March, have a single urgent purpose – to muster international support – and President Zelensky goes about it with a series of highly tailored messages.

    From the fall of the Berlin Wall to the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington, Mr Zelensky taps into epic national events and traumas.

    In Paris on Wednesday he invoked the national motto of “liberté, égalité, fraternité”. In Japan, he raised the spectre of nuclear disaster.
