Amazing Thing Kavanaugh Does on First Day on the Supreme Court Brings Massive Shame to Ruth Bader Ginsberg

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The recently confirmed Justice Brett Kavanaugh has done something amazing on his first day on the Supreme Court and it’s going to infuriate supporters of Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Kavanaugh has hired the same amount of black law clerks on his first day as Ginsberg has her entire time on the bench. One.

Yes, that’s right. Ginsberg, a so-called liberal crusader for equality, has only hired one black law clerk the entire time she’s been on the Supreme Court and she’s basically been on the bench since dinosaurs roamed the earth.

With his first clerkship hires, Kavanaugh also set a gender composition record, an apparent attempt to buck the high court’s hiring patterns, which tend to favor white, male graduates of elite law schools.

Since joining the high court in 1993, Ginsburg has hired over 100 law clerks, just one of whom is black.

Ginsburg’s hiring practices have been criticized for decades. During her 1993 confirmation hearings, GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah asked Ginsburg if a court might reasonably conclude that a small business in a majority black city that hired 57 white employees and zero black employees over a period of years was discriminatory. Ginsburg dodged, before Hatch pointed out that was in fact her own record of clerkship hiring in her 13 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

“I will try harder, and if you confirm me for this job my attractiveness to black candidates is going to improve,” Ginsburg replied, to much laughter throughout the hearing chamber.

Kavanaugh’s new clerks are Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy, Sara Nommensen and Kim Jackson. These hires set a record in a second respect: Kavanaugh is the first Supreme Court justice to hire an all female class of clerks.

Mere hours after the confirmation vote was complete, Kavanaugh was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Anthony Kennedy in a private ceremony at the court.

This is just more proof that the left doesn’t actually practice what they preach, especially when it comes to issues of racial equality. At the end of the day, they talk a big game about equality because it helps them get votes and retain power, not because they actually want to accomplish anything worthwhile for the American people.

The truth hurts.

Colorado Mayor Bans Pledge of Allegiance Because It’s Not Legitimate

The left-wing Mayor of Silverton, Colorado, Shane Fuhrman, unilaterally banned the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

The left-wing Mayor of Silverton, Colorado, Shane Fuhrman, unilaterally banned the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance because he finds it unnecessary. Mayor Furhman insisted that the Pledge isn’t even legitimate, saying, “it’s not really a thing,” when he argued against reciting the pledge, according to the Denver Patch. The issue came up last year when the city began meeting over zoom because of the coronavirus. At that time, it was decided that the council members who didn’t want to recite the pledge would just turn off their computer cameras during the segment of the meeting. But even during that period, the mayor’s request to ditch the pledge was voted down 4-3. However, now that the meetings are back to in-person, the mayor simply acted unilaterally and ended the recitation of the Pledge. “Due to the direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of our public meetings, and general divisiveness and issues created in our community, we will not be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance during Town of Silverton trustee meetings,” Fuhrman said during theJune 14 meeting. Fuhrman went on to demand that if anyone had proof in the city’s rules saying he could not make such a decision they better speak up. “If you’d like to find somewhere in the code, something that doesn’t permit me to do this,” he said, “then I welcome that discussion at our next meetings.” At least one council member was not happy with the decision. Trustee Molly Barela reminded the mayor that they had already voted to continue reciting the pledge, and added, “It’s been done for a long time. We all took an oath, and we as a board we decided it would be done.” Members of the public who were in attendance at the meeting were no less supportive…

Promise Broken: 60 Percent of Americans Will Suffer Tax Hike Under Biden’s Plan

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan.

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan. We are now seeing that Biden lied. The Tax Policy Center released new data on the realities of Biden’s tax proposals and found that Biden’s policies will slam middle and low-income taxpayers right where it hurts. The organization says that 99.8 percent of Americans earning between $500,00 and $1million will pay an average of $8,810 more in taxes each year under Biden’s tax plan. This might be in keeping with Biden’s campaign pledge that only “the rich” will pay more. But the TPC also found that people who make far less will also get hit under Biden. The center says that people making between $75,000 and $500,00 will also get pinched. This is not as a result of direct taxes on income but of the impact of the other hikes in rates, such as the corporate tax rise. According to the Daily Mail: Three-quarters of households earning between $75,000 and $100,000 annually would face paying an additional $440 per year in taxes under Biden’s tax hikes, according to the data released last week. About 69 percent of those earning between $100,000 and $200,000 would see their yearly tax bill rise by $830 on average, according to the analysis. Meanwhile, 83.7 percent of those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 would see an increase of $2,040 on average. But most Americans will be impacted indirectly by Biden’s giant tax hike. “For those looking to see if Biden kept his promise to not raise taxes for those making $400,000 or less, the answer is: Mostly, but not entirely,” wrote Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. “Including corporate tax increases, most households would pay more in 2022. About three-quarters…
