You keep making a FOOL of yourself since this was right in front of your face:

"Brown was on Bush’s shortlist to replace her. She would have been the first Black woman ever nominated to serve as an associate justice of the Supreme Court. But Biden appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” to warn that if Bush nominated Brown, she would face a filibuster. “I can assure you that would be a very, very, very difficult fight and she probably would be filibustered,” Biden said."

The SHORT LIST is published at the Washington Post article for July 1, 2005 while Biden July 3, 2005 on Face the Nation made a FILIBUSTER threat if Brown is nominated.

From Post one you still ignore,

But Biden appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” to warn that if Bush nominated Brown, she would face a filibuster. “I can assure you that would be a very, very, very difficult fight and she probably would be filibustered,” Biden said. Asked by moderator John Roberts “Wasn’t she just confirmed?,” Biden replied that the Supreme Court is a “totally different ballgame” because “a circuit court judge is bound by stare decisis. They don’t get to make new law.”

He stated this on July 3, 2005 two days after the Washington post listed her because he apparently believed she is under consideration for a nomination by Bush thus the threat.

In the end Judge Brown was NEVER nominated because of the Filibuster threat chose Alito instead who was also on the short list for nomination considerations.

You're hallucinating. Nothing in that Washington Post article says she was on Bush's short list.

And I showed where she was added to Bush's short list months later.

And nothing prevented Bush from nominating her had she been who he wanted.

What Biden threatened was unprecedented. There has never been a successful filibuster of a nominee for associate justice in the history of the republic. Biden wanted to make a Black woman the first in history to have her nomination killed by filibuster. Bush eventually nominated Samuel A. Alito Jr.

Comment:
Read the article.
Judge Brown was more qualified than Jackson, but because she was too mainstream for Biden and the crazy left Dems they blocked her before she could even get a hearing.
In the immortal words of Biden she "Ain't Black". This is the consensuses through out the Democratic party for anyone in the Black community that deviates from the mandated behavior for minorities.

Possible Nominees to the Supreme Court​


The Washington Post
Friday, July 1, 2005; 11:12 AM

Here is a list of potential nominees for the Supreme Court:

Samuel A. Alito, Jr.
Samuel A. Alito, Jr., 55, is a judge on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit.

Nominated by President George H. W. Bush to the court in 1990, Alito was educated at Princeton University and Yale Law School. His work experience includes stints as assistant to the Solicitor General and deputy assistant to the Attorney General during the Reagan Administration, and as U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey.

Alito has voted to uphold regulations on abortion, notably as the lone dissenter in a 1991 case in which the 3rd Circuit struck down a Pennsylvania law's requirement that women tell their husbands before having an abortion. The three-judge panel preserved most elements of the abortion control law, including a 24-hour waiting period and a requirement that minors notify their parents. But Alito argued in his dissent that the spousal notification provision did not impose an "undue burden" and also should have been upheld.
ad_icon

In other rulings, Alito wrote for the majority in 1997 in finding that Jersey City officials did not violate the Constitution with a holiday display that included a creche, a menorah and secular symbols of the Christmas season. In 1999, he and his colleagues found that a Newark policy that allowed medical, but not religious, exemptions to a ban on police officers having beards violated the First Amendment.
-- Christopher Lee

Janice Rogers Brown
Janice Rogers Brown, 56, was confirmed last month to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. For nine years before that, she was a California Supreme Court justice.


Janice Rogers Brown
Janice Rogers Brown

Brown was born in Greenville, Ala., and educated at California State University at Sacramento and the University of California at Los Angeles School of Law. She is a self-described conservative who as a young single mother once called herself so leftist as to be almost Maoist. She was legal affairs secretary for California Gov. Pete Wilson (R) before joining the California Court of Appeals in 1994.

As a judge, she has written sharp opinions that opposed affirmative action, that supported a state law requiring girls younger than 18 to notify their parents before getting an abortion, and that advocated using stun guns in a courtroom to control an unruly defendant. She has strongly supported property rights and describes herself as someone who looks to the intent of the framers of the Constitution when making decisions. Some have criticized her for writing dissents and opinions that personally attack other justices.

Brown has attracted as much attention for her speeches as for her legal decisions. In recent years, she has described New Deal legal precedents as "the triumph of our socialist revolution," and two months ago, she told a Connecticut group of Catholic legal professionals that "there seems to have been no time since the Civil War that this country was so bitterly divided." She also said that "these are perilous times for people of faith" and that there's a social cost to pay "if you are a person of faith who stands up for what you believe in and say those things out loud."

Brown grew up in the segregated South, where her family refused to enter restaurants or theaters with separate entrances for black customers. Before moving to Washington, she lived in a gated community in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas.

I have stated several times that Judge Brown was NEVER nominated here in the thread.

You are pathetic who can't understand a simple list.

Imbecile, that's not Bush's short list. Those were just names floating around. I already showed you Bush added Brown's name to his short list months later.

You are truly unable to think rationally here is the post showing the times dates and the actual statements from Biden stating he would Filibuster her if she is nominated on July 3, 2005 the WAPO article was on July 1, 2005

Way back to POST 45

I posted the dates you dumb ass!

July 2005

"Brown was on Bush’s shortlist to replace her. She would have been the first Black woman ever nominated to serve as an associate justice of the Supreme Court. But Biden appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” to warn that if Bush nominated Brown, she would face a filibuster. “I can assure you that would be a very, very, very difficult fight and she probably would be filibustered,” Biden said."

PolitiFact:

"A few years earlier, on July 25, 2003, Bush nominated Brown, then an associate justice on the California Supreme Court, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit."

=====

Here is the full section from Politifact:

"A few years earlier, on July 25, 2003, Bush nominated Brown, then an associate justice on the California Supreme Court, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

At the time, Republicans held a 51-48 majority in the Senate but they struggled to get the 60 votes needed to end debate and vote on judicial nominees.

Democrats were filibustering several of Bush’s nominees to prevent them from joining a federal bench, and in November 2003, Democrats signaled they would do the same to Brown, reported the Chicago Tribune, which called the judicial filibusters "unprecedented in Senate history."

Biden was among the 43 senators to vote against ending debate on Brown’s nomination, and that filibuster ultimately lasted for two years until a group of senators reached a bipartisan agreement that cleared the way for her confirmation. Biden again voted against ending debate on the nomination but the motion passed, and Brown was confirmed on June 8, 2005, with a vote of 56-43. Biden also voted against her nomination."

Alread did earlier but your brain damage prevents you from seeing it.

Starting at page two POST 45

Then at Post 102

Then again POST 106

No you didn't. This is what you quoted by the Washington Post...

"Possible Nominees to the Supreme Court"

Lemme explain that to ya since you clearly don't understand... that doesn't state the following names were or were not on Bush's short list. Unlike this article which listed names Bush floated...


... and this article from 3 months later stating Bush added Brown's name...

Sure it would. People just like you would be denying Biden's racism yet again.
The big lie is that GiGi rides the fence. He is a democrat dyed in the wool, but he won't take credit for it. The epitome of a lying coward.

Why are leftists surprised and trying to defend a guy that clearly stated he didn’t want his kids growing in a racial jungle. It’s no surprise a person like this would kill a black womans nomination to the SC.

your failing a fact check.
aka spreading lies.
You’re lying about what has been said here multiple times in a pathetic attempt to defend your racist Dear Leader. I never said she was nominated. Nor did anybody else. She was on the short list and people like you lost their minds and went on racist rants. By the way, the video of Xiden making those exact comments has been posted here. You fail. As usual.

Without exception, every person I've seen who constantly flings pedo-accusations is fascist filth. This poster is no exception.

The old Nazis did it to the Jews. The new Nazis do it to Democrats.

What, you Nazi asslickers think it's not obvious that you're running right out of the Nazi playbook?

Now, how do your fascist leaders tell you to respond to that? Run and check. You wouldn't want to be caught thinking on your own. You know how much your leaders hate that.

If you could point to any such lies, you wouldn't come across as such a butthurt fascist sore-loser, lying for the glory of his fascist cult.

But you can't, so you do.
