“I have long heard that the most important decision a U.S. President can make is the selection of a Supreme Court Justice – Will be announced tonight at 9:00 P.M.,” Trump said on Twitter.

There are four reported frontrunners.

Amy Coney Barratt, 46, is a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, and formerly a law professor at Notre Dame Law School, from which she holds a Juris Doctor degree. She also holds a BA from Rhodes College. She was appointed to the Appeals Court by Trump.

United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit Raymond Kethledge is also on the short list. He is 51 and received his undergraduate and Juris Doctor degree from the University of Michigan. Big League Politics reported on Kethledge’s soft immigration stance Sunday. Kethledge was appointed to the Appeals Court by George W. Bush.

Thomas Michael Hardiman, another Bush appointment, is a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Hardiman, 51, was nominated to the appeals court by President George W. Bush. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame, and his Juris Doctor from Georgetown Law.

United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit Brett Kavanaugh rounds out the frontrunners. He was a Bush appointee who served as Staff Secretary in the Executive Office of the President of the United States under the 43rd President. Kavanaugh, 53, holds an undergraduate degree from Yale University, and a Juris Doctorate from Yale Law.

Three of the four reported top choices hold degrees from non-Ivy League law schools. There has never been a sitting Supreme Court Justice from a non-Ivy League law school.

‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’

This is what real conservative leadership is all about.

Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.

Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:

Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.

“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.

“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”

Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.

Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.

One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”

AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”

… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.

Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
