Proverbs 12:19: “The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.”

Important Takeaways:

  • Biden Announces Ketanji Brown Jackson for Supreme Court
  • In Jackson, Biden delivers on a campaign promise to make the historic appointment and to further diversify a court that was made up entirely of white men for almost two centuries. He has chosen an attorney who would be the high court’s first former public defender, though she also possesses the elite legal background of other justices.
  • Jackson would be the current court’s second Black justice – Justice Clarence Thomas, a conservative, is the other – and just the third in history.
  • She would also be only the sixth woman to serve on the court, and her confirmation would mean that for the first time four women would sit together on the nine-member court.
