White House: Biden plans to nominate black woman to Supreme Court if vacancy arises

White House press secretary Jen Psaki stated on Tuesday that President Joe Biden is “absolutely” committed to nominating a black woman to the U.S. Supreme Court if a vacancy arises.

The issue arose as the Biden administration announced its first group of 11 nominated attorneys and judges. The diverse listed included multiple black women.

“I think there is an incredible group of nominees the president announced today. … As someone who served for 17 years on the Senate Judiciary Committee as chairman and ranking member, he has a long history on judicial appointments,” Psaki said.

“This is a priority for him, but our focus is getting the Senate to confirm this group of nominees and to continue to build … a pipeline of additional highly qualified nominees who are going to reflect the values the president has outlined.”

The commitment remains hypothetical at this time, as there is not a current vacancy on the court. The nine justices currently include six conservatives and three liberals.

The Supreme Court currently includes three women. Conservative Amy Coney Barrett is the most recent addition in 2020, alongside liberal justices Elean Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.

The court’s only black justice remains Clarence Thomas. President Bush nominated him as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court where Thomas has served since 1991.

The oldest current justice is liberal Stephen Breyer. He turns 83 in 2021, and has served since his appointment by President Bill Clinton in 1994.

Biden may be committed to a black female justice, but the decision will only matter if he has an opportunity to act. If a vacancy does arise, it is certain his choice will also be a liberal candidate, leading to high scrutiny from conservatives during the nomination process.

This stuff with presidents nominating them should be stopped Supreme court justices credentials need to be placed out to the American people, & a vote by the American people needs to take place , no SCOTUS should be allowed to refuse to do their job or pick 7 choose when they could do it, what is going on here, we had a rigged election in 2020& they refuse to hear the cases what kind of stuff is this !!!!

How about hiring someone who has the qualifications, it shouldn’t have anything to do with the color of their skin! Like I’ve been saying, democrats want to keep the racism going, they don’t want it to go away!

Joe Biden is a racist, his announcement only proves that he is. As usual Biden is dedicatred his administration to follwing a path that will cause further resentment of the Black races. To further the Democrats goal of causing more segration of the different races in the country he will stop at nothing. He cares not for the country, but for the Party. This man has redefined the definition of “Worst President in history” and he just begun his destructive reign. The pot is beginning to boil Biden!

Biden says he wants someone on the Supreme Court that mirrors his commitment??? The only thing he’s committed to is the complete and utter destruction of the constitution, the economy and our rights. The man wants to blame the problems he’s created on anyone but himself. He and his entire administration needs to go and quickly before he can do any more damage.

By the time Biden gets through with his “equity/equality” agenda ( if he makes it through a full 4 year term) he’ll have the 18% telling the rest of the country what’s what. Sounds like a plan, Joe, to go along with the rest of your scorched earth policies. Heil Biden!

We need to have a National Referendum where-by each State would by popular vote determine if laws & operations related to the Constitution & Bill of Rights ,Freedom of Religion ,Border Security ,Abortion paid by the taxpayers ,and a number of other issues which separate us as a Nation would be determined by a simple majority . The States that a majority of voters cast positive (yes ) to the premise will bond with other like views & votes and FORM a Union .Those States that vote (NO) can do the same .Citizens of the minority votes in each State can remain and live under the laws and rules of that State or can move to a State / Union that promotes their views . A new group of States and followers of our way of life can change the term limits ,defend our borders and so many issues that WILL not be addressed by the Present conditions >>

Here’s the scary part of that story.

“highly qualified nominees who are going to reflect the values the president has outlined.”

That won’t be hard to do, just toss a brick in the air and you’ll hit one in the head. If the person that gets hit in the head immediately says the sky is falling, call the National Guard, you found the right person.

Possibly, all of the Illegal Immigrants he has allowed into the USA, should be allowed to ‘set up’ camp on the White House lawn. BiDUM could out and join them and tell them just how GREAT HE (thiinks) He Is!

Good luck America.

God forbid the idiot would choose someone based on their skill sets and past experience but instead choose by gender and skin color.

If you look over the years you have to wonder why we continue to throw the race card into our government, It’s my understanding over the years our selections should be base on qualification rather than gender or race but then when you have someone telling someone what to do what do you expect. Look at this country if we continue to go in the direction were going well have no country
