The Biden-Harris regime’s efforts to undermine the US Judicial system have begun. The first slate of radical Judge appointments has been announced by the White House. The group seems to have been assembled with diversity keenly in mind. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has been nominated for the prominent U.S. Appeals court in Washington. On the campaign trail Biden promised to nominate the first black woman to the Supreme Court, this could be seen as him teeing up his choice given that both Justices Ginsberg and Scalia served on the D.C. Circuit Court.
The Hill reports,
“The nominees will all be subject to confirmation in the 50-50 Senate, where Democrats hold the slightest edge over Republicans with Vice President Harris breaking tie votes. That could make the confirmation process difficult for any of the nominees should they run into opposition from any Democrats.”
A majority of judicial nominees have been prosecutors, however, the Biden-Harris regime is under increasing pressure from special interest groups to nominate more public interest attorneys such as civil rights lawyers and public defenders. Press Secretary Jen Psaki tweeted that these nominees are “also representing a paradigm shift in the types of people who can see themselves on the federal bench.”
In addition to being among the brightest minds in the American legal profession, 4 nominees have served as public defenders, 4 are members of the AAPI community, if confirmed 1 nom would be the first Muslim-American judicial nominee in history.

Psaki noted to the press that four of the nominees are former public defenders, which reflects a significant change as many nominees are drawn from prosecutor posts and Attorneys General who are accustomed to representing the government. Conversely most of Biden’s nominees are accustomed to representing plaintiffs AGAINST the government.
Almost all reporting on the nominations and Psaki’s comments focus on the racial, cultural and even religious makeup of the nominees. Four are Asian American or Pacific Islander, two are black, one is Hispanic and Quraishi, if confirmed, would make history as the first Muslim-American federal judge, doubtlessly raising concerns about possible application of Sharia law or Islamic jurisprudence.
Florida 2020 Republican Congressional Candidate Laura Loomer posted on Gab, regarding Quaraishi,
“Biden just nominated the first Muslim Federal Judge, Zahid N. Quraishi, a magistrate judge and nominee for the New Jersey District Court. He would be the first Muslim American to serve on the federal bench.
I predict we will soon have Sharia law on the FEDERAL level.
Is this judge going to take their oath on the Quran? That’s sharia law. Sharia law is incompatible with the US constitution and our laws!”
