凯莉·塞维里诺(Carrie Severino): 拜登司法部(Biden Justice Department)提名人古普塔(Gupta)对于助理股份公司而言过于极端 — 这就是为什么

During his inaugural address, 拜登总统 waxed poetically aboutunity not division.But not even a month later, he is delivering a steady diet of extremism – both in his policies and his top-level executive branch nominees.

One of these extremist 被提名人 is named Vanita Gupta.

You may not have heard her name before, but she’s been nominated to be associate attorney general at the 司法部 – the agency’s No. 3 官方.

The associate attorney general is a powerful figure at the 司法部, “formulating and implementing Departmental policies and programs pertaining to a broad range of civil justice, federal and local law enforcement, and public safety matters,” according to the DOJ’s website.

So it’s a major problem that Vanita Gupta wants to defund the police.

When talk about defunding law enforcement gained steam last summer, Gupta spoke approvingly of thelocal conversations about budgetsthat were then taking place in Minneapolis andall over the country.

Gupta has asserted thatPolice reform is not going to solve the problem of police violence.” 代替, she has said that we mustfundamentally look at what kind of investmentsare made in law enforcement. 此外, Gupta said the Justice Department must examinenot just using a policing approachto keep communities safe.

Consider the environment in which Gupta made these statements. Our cities were burning. Murder rates were soaring. Innocent people were witnessing their property and livelihoods being destroyed.

Gupta could have stood up for the victims, but went the opposite direction. Is this who we really want developing and implementing federal and local law enforcement policy?

当森. 约翰·科宁, 德州, asked Gupta at a 2020 hearing on police reform if she believedall Americans are racist,” 她回应, “I think we all have implicit bias and racial bias.

Disturbingly, the organization that she led, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, wants to reduce punishments for White supremacists and even terrorists.

Gupta has also shamefully criticized efforts by parents of violent crime victims to strengthen criminal laws, 打电话给他们 “lawmaking by anecdoteand asserting, “States are too broke to afford emotion-criminal justice policymaking.

It’s hard to think of a more radical selection than Vanita Gupta to be associate attorney general.

If these statements sound like the words of a liberal activist more than someone who has been nominated to help lead the nation’s top law enforcement agency, you are on to something. Gupta is deeply entrenched in the world of left-wing activism and dark money.

After serving as the head of the Civil Rights Division in President Obama’s DOJ, Gupta became president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, which has received funding from Arabella Advisors’ Sixteen Thirty Fund. Gupta also ran the Leadership Conference Education Fund, which received over $ 1 million from Arabella’s New Venture Fund.

Arabella Advisors’ network funnels hundreds of millions of dollars to dark money groups for the purpose of advancing countless far-left causes.

A review of Gupta’s career history suggests that she will be an enemy not only of law enforcement at DOJ but also of religious liberty as she wages the far left’s culture war from her government post.

在 2017, Gupta was critical of the position that came to be the Supreme Court’s holding in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, i.e., that a Christian baker could not be required to design and create a wedding cake for a same-sex marriage as a public accommodation.

After the court ruled in favor of the Little Sisters of the Poor last year, permitting them an exemption to the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive mandate violating their religious beliefs, Gupta called it atroubling decision.Given that Gupta will oversee DOJ civil rights policy and enforcement if she is confirmed, the faith community should be alarmed.

As the chief civil rights prosecutor at the Justice Department during the Obama administration, Gupta argued that prisons should be forced to use taxpayer dollars to pay for hormone treatments for transgender inmates. 去年, she asserted that transgender student athletes who identify as female must be allowed to compete in girls’ sports in school.

最后, Gupta has been a vocal proponent of packing the Supreme Court. In the wake of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, she was asked about the likelihood of Democrats packing the courts if they took control after the November election.

Gupta, who was a leading voice of opposition to Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court, responded thatnothing is off the table.It’s no wonder that Demand Justice (also funded by Arabella) named Gupta to its suggested list of Supreme Court nominees last year.

It’s hard to think of a more radical selection than Vanita Gupta to be associate attorney general.

Rather than following through on his promise of pursuing unity, President Biden instead is proving how willing he is to advance the far-left agendas of the dark money groups that elected him by nominating one of their own.
