Merrick Garland Is A Distant Relative, And That Suggests The Media Has Twisted His Words Beyond Recognition

Garland is Jewish.

Way back when, his family name was changed from Garfinkel to Garland.

“It was at this point that a good genealogist’s instincts kicked in. Strictly on a hunch that “Garland” had originally been “Garfinkel,” Stuart typed “Nakhman Garfinkel” into the Jewish genealogical site And sure enough, up he came. Merrick’s great-great-grandfather was named Leib Yitzhak Garfinkel, and that pretty much clinched it, for “Louis Edward” is very likely its English equivalent; Branstad’s grandfather was almost certainly named after him. Soon, Stuart had traced the nominee’s lineage back to his great-great-great-grandfather (Zelig), his great-great-great-great-grandfather (also Nahkman), and great-great-great-great-great-grandfather, born circa 1735 (Leib).” (

My maternal line is the Garfinkel family.

My great-grandfather was Reb Dovid B. Garfinkel, of blessed memory, who was a tzaddik.

The Garfinkel family, which I know well since I am partially one, is Lithuanian.

In the Jewish world, that means straightforward, no “b.s.” attitude toward life and religious observance.

No embellishments.

If Merrick Garland has Garfinkel blood, then I have hope.

When he says the words “we pursue justice without fear or favor,” I think he actually means it.

There is no evidence of his corruption — at all, actually.

There is however ample evidence that people we thought were good, are actually corrupt to the core. As in — three whistleblowers.

Justice is not Republican or Democrat.

Don’t go by what the media says.
