White Males Need Not Apply ….

… whether it’s to be a pilot for United Airlines or the Federal Judiciary. In this era of identity politics, race, gender and national ethnicity are all viewed as more important than being qualified.

It’s important that groups “look more like America” unless, of course those groups are teams in the NFL and NBA, where diversity isn’t viewed as important.

Over six months (actually a little under) in office and four waves of judicial nominees, President Joe Biden has yet to name a white male to the federal courts.

Biden has named 24 nominees for the federal bench in the opening six months of his presidency, 19 of whom are minorities. He has also vowed to name the first black woman to the Supreme Court, and may have the opportunity to do so this summer.

The selections are a plain signal that the administration’s judicial selection is driven by racial preference. The prioritization of minority nominees is unprecedented since the administration of former president Jimmy Carter, who openly placed a premium on female and minority candidates. Biden and his outside supporters frame the issue in terms of judicial legitimacy, arguing the courts will not command public confidence if they do not broadly reflect the country’s increasing diversity. The challenge, they add, was exacerbated during the Trump years, when about three-quarters of the president’s nominees were male and more than 80 percent were white.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment.

Ten of Biden’s 24 nominees are black, four are Hispanic, two are Asian, one is Indian, another Pakistani, and one is a member of a Native American tribe.

The administration faces a forbidding challenge given the racial makeup of the bar. According to a 2019 American Bar Association report, 85 percent of lawyers are white, while only 10 percent are African American or Hispanic. As such, the pool of qualified minority practitioners who fall within the usual nominee age range is small.

The dynamic is also fed by Democratic senators eager to burnish their intersectional bonafides. Senators exercise significant influence over selection for district courts in their states, and Democrats have reliably recommended minority candidates for open seats.

    Nutty sociology professor states that shelter dogs are killed because of white supremacy.

    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/06/sociology_professor_claims_shelter_dogs_killed_due_to_white_supremacy.html

    I am surprised he didn’t mention pit bulls, which are killed at a far higher percentage than other. Pit bulls are a favorite of “Ghetto Males” and end up in shelters in far higher numbers than other breeds. It’s not unusual to find that upwards of 60% of dogs in most shelters are pit bulls.

    “The Food and Drug Administration has added a warning to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine fact sheets that describes a rare but serious heart inflammation problem that’s now been attributed to the pharmaceutical companies’ COVID-19 vaccines.”

    So there’s now an official warning for something that would have gotten you blocked on Twitter or Goolag or Facebook if you mentioned it last week.

    two of the only Leftists I know (a couple who live up here in the hills near us) were at a party last Friday that we attended. They, sadly, sat down near me, and couldn’t wait to say the following:

    Did you see Jimmy Kimmel last night? He had on Michael Cohen and they just tore Trump apart!!”

    My reply: “Did you hear that I was kidnapped and forced at gunpoint to watch something on TV that no sane person would watch??”

    Them, in unison: “Huh?!?”

    Me: “That answers your question…NO, I did not watch that.”

    the same applies to the NFL

    Disney has reportedly given a new name to an iconic part of the Star Wars universe. A new report from Jedi News reveals that LEGO is now dropping the Slave I moniker from merchandise, instead opting to call the vehicle Boba Fett’s Starship. According to details that were revealed at LEGO Fan Media Days last month, the decision was made at the instruction of Disney. A new 478 piece set, which showcases the new Boba Fett’s Starship name and features minifigures of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian, will be available in August.

    “We’re not calling it Slave I anymore,” LEGO Star Wars Lead Designer Michael Lee Stockwell revealed. “This is Boba Fett’s Starship.”

    “Everybody is [dropping the Slave I name],” LEGO Star Wars Design Director Jens Kronvold Frederiksen added. “It’s probably not something which has been announced publicly but it is just something that Disney doesn’t want to use anymore.”

    Remember the guy who got a slap on the wrist when caught lying on FISA docs so the govt could spy on innocent Americans who supported Trump?
    They might remove the wrist slap.

    Unreal. Kevin Clinesmith may be able to begin practicing law again in DC by this August if a disciplinary board approves an agreement he entered with the DC Bar.

    And why the importance of spying on Carter Page?
    “Remember that the FISA warrant wasn’t REALLY for Carter Page. He was a door to spy on the entire Trump campaign. With the 2-hop rule they can get all info on the target – anyone who contacted the target – and anyone that contacted the person that contacted the target.”

    The fine print to : “White Males Need Not Apply ….”

    White Males may apply but must:
    – renounce any Christian beliefs
    – prostrate themselves and beg forgiveness on demand
    – participate (enthusiastically) in all protests against the evil that is America
    – swear allegiance to the list of Woke causes (and agree to check the list daily for updates)

    11 – No surprise, to date ZERO people involved on the DS side have actually paid a negative price.
