White House Scrambles to Rescue Nomination of First Muslim Federal Judge


Joe Biden has a lot of trouble with the Muslims in America after he showed his support for Israel’s war against Hamas terrorists. The support for Israel has faded in recent months, but the damage was already done.

Biden is obsessed with “firsts.” First transgender cabinet appointment, first gay cabinet nomination, first woman here, first black there, in the first three years of his presidency, President Obama painted rainbows across Washington.

It was no surprise that Biden chose Adeel Mnagi to be a federal judge nominee. Mangi would not only be the nation’s first Muslim federal judge, he would also be the country’s first terrorist sympathizer and possibly the first antisemite.

That’s right. Mr. Mangi advises the director of Rutgers University’s Center for Security, Race, and Rights, an organization that has brought several nauseating antisemites on campus.

He served as a member of the Alliance of Families for Justice advisory board, a New York nonprofit that counts Susan Rosenberg among its advisors, one of America’s most notorious home terrorists.

Washington Free Beacon:

Mangi’s links to the group, which has called convicted cop killers, such as Mumia Abu-Jamal and Mutulu Shakur, “freedom fighters,” have already brought him under scrutiny. The group’s association with Rosenberg is a new development that shows a strong affinity towards domestic terrorists. This could be causing more problems for Mangi. Republicans have gathered to oppose Mangi and two Democrats have announced that they will vote against him. Catherine Cortez Masto, a Nevada Democrat senator, cited Mangi’s ties to the Alliance of Families for Justice in her reasoning for voting against him.

Mangi has not responded to a comment request, but her terrorist activities are no secret. In 2020, it was brought back to the forefront after the revelation that Rosenberg had served on the board of a left-wing organization, Thousand Currents. This group funded Black Lives Matter groups.

Three Democratic senators are against Manji’s confirmation as of today. Jacky Rosen, Catherine Cortez Masto, and Joe Manchin all cited Manji’s radical ties in their reasons for voting against his confirmation. Mangi will be a goner as long as the GOP is united.

Mangi would have been sunk by the 51-49 Democratic majority in the Senate. Mangi’s nomination would normally have been dropped from consideration. The president hasn’t given up on Biden because of his problems with the Muslim community.

NBC News:

Zients, along with other top White House officials, have been working behind the scenes to encourage lawmakers to confirm Mangi as soon as possible. The official said that in addition to Zients and White House Counsel Ed Siskel, White House Legislative Director Shuwanza, Goff, Ali Nouri, White House Counsel Ed Siskel, and Phil Brest the senior White House counsel responsible for nominations have been in constant contact with senators.

Joe Biden faces a dilemma as he ramps up his reelection campaign in light of the controversy surrounding Mangi. White House relations with Muslim Americans have soured due to the community’s disapproval of the U.S. backing Israel’s bombardment of Gaza. Biden will rely on the Democratic-leaning group to provide strong support in the fall. This cohort represents only a small portion of the U.S. population but is a major force in certain states, including Michigan, a battleground state.

Stephen Green’s excellent study of the current electoral map shows that Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Biden are in it for both Trump and Biden. The president will not give up on Mangi unless all hope has been lost.

He can then go to the Muslim community, and claim “Islamophobia”, as the reason for the rejection. It appears that the damage to his reelection is beyond repair.
