(Republican Party News) – While the vast majority of us have had our attention focused on the mess still unfolding in Afghanistan after Joe Biden’s massive screw up there led to the Taliban taking things over, the current administration has been working hard with supposed Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, to help remake the federal judiciary.
According to a report from BizPacReview, Fox News host Tucker Carlson, a man who has come to be very well respected in conservative circles, said that Graham has not rejected “a single judge the Biden administration has proposed, no matter how crazy they are.”
“Speaking on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” late Tuesday, Carlson explained that thanks to the South Carolina senator’s help, the president has already successfully confirmed nine of 33 nominated judges in the span of just months,” the report said.
“For perspective, no president in the past 40 years has come close to these numbers by this point in his first term,” he went on to say during the show.
To make things worse, almost every single one of the confirmed judges has been a radical leftist. Why would an alleged conservative person allow such a thing to happen? These are folks who are opposed to the values we hold dear as Americans. Their ideas will shred the freedom we have and enjoy right now.
“Many of these judges — and the Biden administration will admit this — are full-blown political activists, not jurists. They’re left-wing ideologues. They’re people like Myrna Pérez, who Joe Biden has just appointed to one of the most important courts in the country: the Second Circuit Court of Appeals,” Carlson stated.
Perez is a longtime member of left-wing Brennan Center for Justice and is supposedly an “expert on voting rights” who has spent the majority of her career fighting against Republicans in efforts to ensure that our voting system is secure (screen shot here).
“Pérez has spent the last 15 years campaigning against voter ID laws. Anyone who wants voter ID, according to Pérez, must be a racist. Right before her confirmation hearings began, Pérez wrote a piece for a social justice magazine in which she railed against ‘the GOP campaign to make elections less free,’” Carlson added.
Now, the notion of Biden seeking to put radical left-wing judges on the court is not exactly shocking, right? After all, that’s what either party would be trying to do if they had the White House. However, what’s surprising is that Graham, who claims to be conservative, would be helping this administration do that.
“This summer, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance Myrna Pérez’s confirmation. Every Republican on the panel voted no except for one. Do you know who that was? It was Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Now, why would Lindsey Graham support the confirmation of someone like Myrna Pérez?” Carlson wondered.
It seems the reason is that Graham simply does not care at all about truly sticking up for the values and the interests of the GOP, nor those of his constituents.
Carlson then said the evidence this is true is the fact that “Graham is the only Republican on the Judiciary Committee who has not voted to reject a single judge the Biden administration has proposed, no matter how crazy they are.”
Some folks might wonder what the big deal is about Graham being a RINO (Republican In Name Only). Well, it’s actually a very big deal. Because if there is a 50-50 split, Graham’s vote could make all the difference. And with a track record of now supporting Biden’s picks, there’s a chance he would side with Democrats and appoint their judge.
“Senate aides tell us that because of Lindsey Graham — one man — the Biden administration is able to rush its nominees through the Senate confirmation process faster than any other president in memory. So the most radical president of our lifetimes gets the most judges confirmed thanks to Lindsey Graham,” the Fox News host said.
Now, let’s be fair here. Graham is hardly the only member of the GOP that has decided to take a cue from Benedict Arnold and join with the folks trying to destroy our country.
Back in June, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski joined together with the South Carolina senator to help the Democratic Party confirm federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Three Republicans today voted to break a filibuster for the nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to sit on the DC Circuit — Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Lindsey Graham, who later told reporters that he voted ‘aye’ because he tries to be “consistent” on judicial nominees

Carlson stated that Jackson is an unhinged “former trial judge who spent the last four years writing political orders for the benefit of Jerry Nadler and Nancy Pelosi.”
This is the same individual who once compared President Donald Trump to a wannabe monarch. Let that sink in for a moment. The same man who actually refused to get the federal government involved in how to handle the COVID pandemic, allowing the states the freedom guaranteed them by the 10th Amendment of the Constitution to govern themselves on this issue, is a wannabe monarch.
“That decision was so crazy that the D.C. Court of Appeals, which leans to the left, reversed it not once, but twice. But it was good enough for Lindsey Graham, who voted in favor of Brown’s confirmation,” Carlson said.
Why would Graham do this?
“That’s because Lindsey Graham — who, in case you didn’t notice, spent most of last year begging for your money, money from conservatives at all hours on cable television — has no problem installing judges who hate his constituents,” he went on to say.
“And you shouldn’t be surprised by that. A few years ago, Graham admitted in an interview with Politico that his overriding political ambition was to quote ‘stay relevant,’ not to represent his voters or keep the left from destroying the country — but to ingratiate himself with the people in power and advance his own interests,” the Fox News host said.
The real question now, Carlson believes, is why so many of Graham’s GOP colleagues are “allowing him to continue to sit on the Judiciary Committee.”
“Well, we would love to ask that question of Lindsey Graham himself. We’ve asked him many times to come on the show, but he refuses, because he’s afraid — and that’s a shame. That would be a very interesting, fact-based conversation,” Carlson said in conclusion.
