Listening to Ketanji Brown Jackson confirmation hearings on NPR

I'm pretty busy and didn't get a chance to read more about this. I managed to listen a little bit on NPR on the home.

The senators seem to grill her on some convictions below the guidelines and also on some light sentences on child pornography cases (I am posting from the work laptop, and I should probably not type that word; I'll edit from the iPhone later).

Anyway, is there any truth to these questions?

Thanks

Any truth in the allegations that she bends the law to favor molesters and child pornographers, sends her kids to a school that teaches that white people are all racists, and wants to abort "children" ...?

Take a guess.

(Also, look a few threads down.)

Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has already been confirmed by the Senate three times for prior roles.

And shouldn't that be enough?

that just means that prior to those confirmations, she was a good fit. This should apply to ANY candidate, not specifically her.

Every time I purchase a firearm, I still have to go through a background check, because something may have changed since the last one was done. Even judges are human beings. Her private life may have changed. Maybe she became an addict after a major accident 9 months ago. dunno smiley

True, but what you're describing are major life changes / extreme events ... there's no sign that anything like that has happened to her. Though it's true that she should go through the confirmation process again, this doesn't excuse some of the completely irrelevant and inaccurate mud that's being currently thrown at her.

Fact-checkers have already debunked all of these arguments:

[abcnews.go.com]
[www.businessinsider.com]

And when it gets to the point that someone from your own party is saying that you're "off course", that's not a good sign:

[www.businessinsider.com]

... it is indeed demagoguery and grasping at straws. They're attacking her on purely political grounds and not based on anything about her credentials (which are impeccable), character (ditto), or ability to make legal decisions (ditto).

I don't think any of this is necessarily looking good for Republicans. The reality is that she can be confirmed without a single Republican vote. She came across today as VERY sympathetic and always coming up with very good answers, and when you continuously attack someone like this, it runs the very real risk of you looking like a total jerk (which many did).

And then... when it gets to the point where Cory Booker has to reassure you that you DESERVE to be in the position you are... that literally brought tears to her eyes and also mine: [www.youtube.com]
(God bless Cory Booker!)

Or she became an alcoholic sexual predator hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt.
