Think Paul Ryan, the RINO that used to be Speaker of the House and ran as Mitt Romney’s VP is on your side? Think again. Not only is he trying to take down Trump, but he’s deeply connected to Biden’s far-left Supreme Court Justice nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson.
In fact, she’s married to a man named Patrick Jackson. Patrick is the twin brother of Paul Ryan’s brother-in-law, William Jackson.
And while Ryan the RINO claims that their politics are different, he’s done what he can to advance her legal career, a legal career that means advancing leftism in the courts. As ABC reported back in 2016:
Ryan even testified on Brown’s behalf when she was nominated to the district court in 2012, offering his “unequivocal” endorsement of her qualifications in recommending her for the bench.
“Our politics may differ, but my praise for Ketanji’s intellect, for her character, for her integrity is unequivocal,” Ryan said at her December 2012 nomination hearing. “She’s an amazing person, and I favorably recommend her consideration.”
“We’re family, by marriage,” Ryan explained in the 2012 hearing. “Her brother and sister-in-law, who are my brother and sister-in-law, William and Dana Jackson, are here with us as well today.”
Nor did his praise for the radical leftist, a radical leftist he did much to advance, stop there. He went on to praise her nomination in a tweet, saying:
Janna and I are incredibly happy for Ketanji and her entire family. Our politics may differ, but my praise for Ketanji's intellect, for her character, and for her integrity, is unequivocal.

Ryan’s “unequivocal” support of Jackson was recently echoed by whoever runs Biden’s Twitter account. That person, proudly announcing Biden’s attempt to stick a radical leftist on the court, said:
I’m proud to announce that I am nominating Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve on the Supreme Court. Currently serving on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, she is one of our nation’s brightest legal minds and will be an exceptional Justice.

But the issue isn’t just that Ryan praised her. Though he shouldn’t have, perhaps doing so was necessary for staying on good terms with his wife.
The big problem is that his help in ushering her through the confirmation process, something the Senate handles but that he didn’t do anything to stop, will make it much harder to stop her ascension to the Supreme Court now.
“Why,” the left might ask, “would you let her onto a federal court so recently only to now turn her down for a Supreme Court seat?”
The answer is that RINOs ushered her through, not conservatives. but weak-spined Senators like Mitch McConnell and RINOs like Mitt Romney will have a hard time answering in that manner.
Ryan shows why RINOs and Conservative, Inc. Republicans can’t be trusted; their weakness, their unwillingness to fight the agents of the left in the name of “civility” just makes our lives harder in the long run.
Because Ryan and others were unwilling to stand up to Jackson and those nominating her years ago, now we’re faced with the addition of a far-left radical to the highest court in the land.
