Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson Is Soft On Child Predators 


“I'm very troubled about her record, whether it was when she was in private practice, the sentencing commission, or on the bench. She would've let 1,500 prisoners go during COVID. Among the ones she let go were a murderer, [and] a bank robber. These are hardened criminals back on the streets. She also has been soft on child pornography.”


Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson Does Not Have A Judicial Philosophy


“She doesn't seem to have a judicial philosophy. She will not be clear about where she [supports] court packing. I have talked to a lot of women who were quite concerned about her record when it comes to how she's dealt with crime, how she's been soft on criminals, and soft on child pornographers and child abusers.”


Xi Jinping Is Watching Biden’s Weakness In Ukraine


“My hope is that President Biden will realize that if the US does not stand up and defend freedom and freedom fighters, nobody else on the face of the earth is going to be there to take that lead. It’s important that he does that. I think it's also important that he talk about the war crimes that are being carried out against the Ukrainian people—children, elderly, men and women are just being murdered in those streets—that he will push to get what Ukraine needs to protect itself and have our NATO partners challenge them…We know Xi Jinping is watching this very closely, Maria, and we need to be standing with Taiwan. We ought to be selling to Taiwan right now, just like I had recommended to the White House last fall. Keep the sanctions on Nord Stream 2 and sell Ukraine what they need to protect themselves.”
