There’s been a lot of banter across social media networks in the past couple of weeks. It’s probably safe to assume that most Americans would like to take a break from politics. The reality, however, is that we can’t escape it. Recently, Donald Trump’s Oz endorsement for the Pennsylvania senate was one of two straws that appears to have collectively broken the camel’s back. From election fraud (which myriad evidence, including video footage, confirms) to forced injections and other unjust mandates and more – people are sick and tired of government corruption and politics. The other straw was the confirmation of Ketanji Jackson as a justice for the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).
If you’ve somehow managed to not let political issues invade your life, you might wonder what all the fuss is about. What’s the big deal? Why are so many Americans irate about Oz and Jackson? By the end of this post, you’ll be, at least, somewhat clued in. People have legitimate reasons for being highly concerned about this endorsement and nomination (now confirmed). Many people adamantly believe that both Oz and Jackson place children at risk because of their track records that show avid support of sex offenders. Oz also has a track record of opposing efforts to protect life in the womb. These aren’t the only reasons many Americans are baffled that Donald Trump would endorse Dr. Oz. They also have numerous concerns regarding Ketanji Jackson’s confirmation as a nominee for SCOTUS. There’s more.
Let’s start with the OZ endorsement
The following list includes numerous issues that have raised a red flag in the minds of many Americans when it comes to Donald Trump’s Oz endorsement:
- Oz has supported Red Flag laws (which threaten people’s rights protected under the Second Amendment).
- He has routinely attacked pro-life legislation.
- There’s evidence that his family’s business has supported illegal immigration.
- Oz was a staunch supporter of Obamacare (which most people agree was disastrous for our country).
- He recently hosted a $250,000 per person fundraiser with a close friend of Bill Clinton and associate of deceased sex offender and pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein.
This is the short version of a long list of issues that cause many Pennsylvanians and other Americans grave concern about the Oz endorsement by Donald Trump.
Ketanji Jackson, notorious for letting pedophiles off the hook in court
On numerous occasions, Judge Ketanji Jackson issued lighter sentences to pedophiles than was recommended by the prosecutors in each case. It’s sad, tragic and horrific that she has let pedophiles out of jail sooner than prosecutors thought they should be let out. It’s unthinkable that those same men have since been accused of more sex offenses and wound up back in the criminal justice system. In other words, victims were (allegedly) assaulted who would have been protected had Jackson issued maximum sentencing the first time around. One of the men was brought before Jackson because he had violated probation and sex offender registration laws after raping his 14-year-old niece.
Many people were also aghast when Jackson told Senator Marsha Blackburn she couldn’t define “woman.” She gave the excuse that she is not a biologist. (I’m not one either, but I can define “woman.”) Jackson also refused to denounce the practice of “packing the SCOTUS.” This is an effort to add seats to the SCOTUS to change its ideological balance. Instead of speaking against it, Jackson said that she planned to “stay in her lane,” as a justice. She also said she’d be “thrilled to be one of however many.”
Even a Republican senator (Thom Tillis, from North Carolina) questioned his own earlier support of Jackson. He grew concerned after her refusal to denounce court stacking. The senator said that court stacking “threatens the independence of the federal judiciary.” He said he’s disappointed that Jackson won’t take a firm stand against it.
Is the Oz endorsement and Jackson confirmation good for America?
It’s understandable that Pennsylvanians and others would be concerned that Donald Trump would formally endorse Mehmet Oz. Trump supposedly supports Second Amendment rights for all Americans. The Red Flag laws Oz supports are a direct threat to our right to bear arms. Many people find it particularly odd that Trump would endorse Oz over David McCormick. McCormick is a bronze star recipient of the Persian Gulf War. He is also a West Point graduate and has a history of defending the U.S. Constitution. He’s a 13-year combat veteran. Many believe McCormick is a battle-tested, tried and true fighter who will get the job done for Pennsylvanians and America.
Once you compare the qualifications of McCormick versus Oz, it’s beyond strange to think that Donald Trump would endorse the latter instead of the former.
So, there you have it. Americans have been given a SCOTUS nomination who regularly lightens the sentences of convicted pedophiles. And, former president Donald J. Trump gives his official stamp of approval to a Hollywood elite celebrity. He chooses a celebrity with aggressive leftist views over a highly decorated, hard-working, combat veteran with a stellar record. A record (for McCormick) that shows nothing less that dedication, commitment and service to country. What gives?
