As Americans have been distracted by the catastrophe in Afghanistan, President Joe Biden has been “remaking the federal judiciary” with the help of ostensibly Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham.
According to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Graham hasn’t rejected “a single judge the Biden administration has proposed, no matter how crazy they are.”
Speaking on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” late Tuesday, Carlson explained that thanks to the South Carolina senator’s help, the president has already successfully confirmed nine of 33 nominated judges in the span of just months.
“For perspective, no president in the past 40 years has come close to these numbers by this point in his first term,” he said.

Making matters worse, nearly every confirmed judge has been a left-wing radical.
“Many of these judges — and the Biden administration will admit this — are full-blown political activists, not jurists. They’re left-wing ideologues. They’re people like Myrna Pérez, who Joe Biden has just appointed to one of the most important courts in the country: the Second Circuit Court of Appeals,” Carlson continued.
A longtime member of the left-wing Brennan Center for Justice, Pérez is a so-called “expert on voting rights” who’s dedicated her career to combating attempts by Republicans to make America’s elections more secure.
“Pérez has spent the last 15 years campaigning against voter ID laws. Anyone who wants voter ID, according to Pérez, must be a racist. Right before her confirmation hearings began, Pérez wrote a piece for a social justice magazine in which she railed against ‘the GOP campaign to make elections less free,'” according to Carlson.
That Biden sought to install a radical to the judiciary is no shocker, he continued. What is surprising, however, is seeing “one of the most prominent members of the so-called conservative party … spend his time helping the Biden administration do that.”
“This summer, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance Myrna Pérez’s confirmation. Every Republican on the panel voted no except for one. Do you know who that was? It was Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Now, why would Lindsey Graham support the confirmation of someone like Myrna Pérez?” Carlson pondered.
Because apparently, he doesn’t seem to care an iota about upholding the interests of the Republican Party and, more importantly, his constituents.
The evidence, Carlson noted, is the fact that “Graham is the only Republican on the Judiciary Committee who has not voted to reject a single judge the Biden administration has proposed, no matter how crazy they are.”
This is a big, big, big deal because, as further noted by the Fox News host, “In a Senate split 50-50, Lindsey Graham’s support matters very much.”
“Senate aides tell us that because of Lindsey Graham — one man — the Biden administration is able to rush its nominees through the Senate confirmation process faster than any other president in memory. So the most radical president of our lifetimes gets the most judges confirmed thanks to Lindsey Graham,” Carlson said.
To be fair to Graham, other squishy Republicans have also — in some instances — sided with the Biden administration.
In June, for instance, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski joined the South Carolina senator in helping Democrats confirm federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

According to Carlson, Jackson is an unhinged “former trial judge who spent the last four years writing political orders for the benefit of Jerry Nadler and Nancy Pelosi.”
In one case, she compared former President Donald Trump to a wannabe monarch.
“That decision was so crazy that the D.C. Court of Appeals, which leans to the left, reversed it not once, but twice. But it was good enough for Lindsey Graham, who voted in favor of Brown’s confirmation,” Carlson added.
“That’s because Lindsey Graham — who, in case you didn’t notice, spent most of last year begging for your money, money from conservatives at all hours on cable television — has no problem installing judges who hate his constituents,” he continued.
“And you shouldn’t be surprised by that. A few years ago, Graham admitted in an interview with Politico that his overriding political ambition was to quote ‘stay relevant,’ not to represent his voters or keep the left from destroying the country — but to ingratiate himself with the people in power and advance his own interests,” he said.
The question now, according to Carlson, is why Graham’s Republican colleagues are “allowing him to continue to sit on the Judiciary Committee.”
“Well, we would love to ask that question of Lindsey Graham himself. We’ve asked him many times to come on the show, but he refuses, because he’s afraid — and that’s a shame. That would be a very interesting, fact-based conversation,” he concluded.
