Republicans should not help Democrats confirm Biden’s radical judicial nominees


On Saturday, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) wrote that Republicans should not help Democrats confirm President Joe Biden’s hardline justices by allowing a “temporary” replacement for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) on the Judiciary Committee.

Feinstein has been called to resign as she continues her indefinite absence, prompting the California Democrat to ask Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to take her seat on the influential Judiciary Committee “temporarily.” Without Feinstein, Senate Democrats have been unable to advance Biden’s judicial nominations.

Michael Thorning, director of the bipartisan Policy Center for Structural Democracy, noted that the potential replacement would be “unprecedented” and face significant hurdles, as ten Senate Republicans would have to agree to Schumer’s request in the Senate.

Cotton, citing a federal article written by Chris Bedford, wrote: “Republicans should not help Democrats confirm Joe Biden’s most radical nominees.

Bedford, former editor and soon to be the next editor of the Federalist Common sense magazine said that if Republicans accept Feinstein’s request, they will confirm only judges who support a “largely anarchic administration.”

He explained:

With what evidence can a Republican say that he will take that district if one of them is at the mercy of his colleagues? The party, which twice voted to impeach President Donald Trump, has been disciplined and opposed to its own judicial nominees.

Even today, if left-wing activists and their allies in the press were successful, the tradition of the “blue slip” (which allows senators to nominate candidates from their state) priesthood would be abolished.

Biden has come under increasing scrutiny for his decision to appoint judges for anything other than their rights.

46th President Ketanji Brown asked Jackson to be his Supreme Court nominee because our courts were “un-American.”

Along with other judicial candidates, they failed to answer simple constitutional questions.

In January, Sen. John F. Kennedy (R-LA) withdrew from a judicial nomination that failed to describe what Article V or Article II would do.

Senate Judiciary Committee

In March, Biden’s judicial nominee Cato Crews’ administration was ignorant of one of the most important constitutional protections for citizens accused of crimes and confused it with Second Amendment rights.
