For being a black conservative, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been subjected to an entirely different set of standards in the criticism of his judicial leanings and his personal life, according to an upcoming documentary highlighting his career and path to the Supreme Court.
“If you criticize a black person who’s more liberal, you’re a racist. Whereas you can do whatever to me, or to now [Housing and Urban Development Secretary] Ben Carson, and that’s fine, because you’re not really black because you’re not doing what we expect black people to do,” he added.'Read more
Demand Justice, a far left group run by former Hillary Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon that has become the left’s voice on judicial nominations, came out with their “short list” of potential liberal Supreme Court nominees. The list is extreme to say the least. How extreme? As Carrie Severino points out:

On Tuesday, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg again praised Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s commitment to advancing women in the Judicial Branch, highlighting a rare moment in which Democrat appointees on the Court recognized their Conservative counterparts in advancing equality, and this time, the role of women. The comments were made during a panel at Georgetown Law’s Supreme Court Institute, where Ginsburg commended Kavanaugh for “making history” by appointing an all-female staff.
“There is a very important first on the Supreme Court this term and it’s thanks to our new justice, Justice Kavanaugh, whose entire staff, they’re all women, all of his law clerks are women … it’s the first time in the history of the United States that there have been more women clerking than men.”Read more
