Joe Biden has been active during the first three years of his term in nominating judicial candidates whose qualifications appear to be their race, minority status, or sexual preferences.
But when Sara Hill, nominated by Biden to be a district judge for reasons that openly are described as "identity politics," appeared before a Senate committee, the levels for non-performance reached new extremes.
In fact, leftists openly are cheering her nomination as Hill, long an attorney general for the Cherokee Nation, would be "the first Native American women" to be handed a lifetime appointment to federal court in Oklahoma.
That cheering section, however, ended up with a subdued reaction when she failed multiple times during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, a hearing in which, according to a commentary at Twitchy, Sen. Kennedy, "Makes an absolute fool of yet another Biden judicial nominee."
The Federalist reported her integrity was left in tatters because of her response to Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah when he asked her if she had said she "had no intent to enforce the law post-Dobbs."
Hill: "Never said that."
But The Federalist noted, "video footage from her time as attorney general demonstrates otherwise."
The Federalist then continued, "Saying she would not enforce Oklahoma law and then claiming she didn't only scratch the surface of Wednesday's disastrous nomination hearing. In a now-viral and embarrassing clip of the hearing, Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., asked Hill to explain the difference between a 'stay order' and an 'injunction.'"
She hemmed and hawed, and couldn't.
"I'm not sure that I actually can give you the – uh – that," she said.
The Federalist pointedly noted, "As Kennedy demonstrated, however, checking off diversity boxes does not make you qualified for a federal judgeship."
And commentator Carl Jackson wrote on social media, "Identity politics is ruining this country by elevating people to positions they couldn't otherwise ascend to based on merit."
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt, also a member of the Cherokee Nation, openly opposes Hill because of her multiple lawsuits against the state over the years.
He accused her of an "effort to overturn 116 years of statehood and working to strip the state of our authority to enforce laws."
