Sonia Sotomayor – Abortion Rights, “Settled Law” – Ok, So Show Me The Law !
Since the Senate hearings commenced for the confirmation of Sonia Sotomayor to replace David Souter on the Supreme Court, her canned and rehearsed answers have cause many, even conservatives to ease up on her and believe the hype through prepared answers that Sotomayor is not a liberal as once thought. Yet in just one series of questions concerning ,”abortion rights, ” this liberal judge revealed | Read More »
10 Questions for Sotomayor
(Editor’s Note: Since Sonia Sotomayor will almost certainly NOT be answering questions next week about future cases likely to face SCOTUS, I’m leaving them out of my list of 10. Below are a list of questions phrased softly enough and hypothetical enough that she’ll likely feel safe answering. Hopefully, she’ll like to hear herself talk and get into enough detail to hang herself expose her judicial mindset to America.) | Read More »
Help stop the madness….. Keep calling, send e-mails, fax ’em all !!!
The media is still wall-to-wall Michael Jackson. A huge portion of the American citizenry are glued to the coverage, wanting more. These are the same people who don’t care about anything other than their own self-gratification, American Idol, Hollywood gossip and the latest movie/DVD release….. You know the type. Democrats and The Left are confident that they can blast gaping holes in our Constitution and | Read More »
Picturing the Supreme Court’s lineup [Updated]
Via Slashdot we come across SCOTUSScores.com, a site which purports to give a clear visual representation of the Supreme Court’s voting patterns over the years. Each justice is given a color coding for every term representing how he voted. There’s just one problem with it: It’s biased. Updated below the fold… No, really? A biased chart of the Supreme Court just in time for a | Read More »
New York Times State of Mind
The American political system is based on a useful falsehood. It’s based on the falsehood that David Brooks is an intelligent, thoughtful man who represents the right wing, or conservative point of view when writing. It is a falsehood borne of the idea that an intelligent man, without political aspirations or social obligations, can put aside his social caste and come up with a reasonably | Read More »
Themis The Goddess of Justice — And Letting Slip The Blindfold
Submitted to DIGG We take our idolized vision of justice from the statue of Themis, the Greek goddess of divine law. Our depiction of Themis, as are most of the likenesses that have come down from ancient times, finds her standing blindfolded, with an upraised balance scale in her left hand, while resting a sword upon the ground in her right hand. In her Greek | Read More »
The Sliding Scales of American Liberal Social Justice
(Ntrepid Lessons for all Ages…Learn Them While You’re Young) And so it was…as a rambunctious high school senior, your humble correspondent had run afoul of a very well thought out, firmly established, and oh-so-PC school policy and the wheels of the small town public school kangaroo justice system were spun up with extreme haste…we’re talking special school board sessions and all: The high | Read More »
Obama Hypocrisy And The End Of The,”Compelling Story”
Since the announcement of the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor as Obama’s replacement for Justice David Souter to The Supreme Court, the media has given the American people a deluge of commentary and reporting about the, “compelling story,” of her rise from humble beginnings to possibly the highest court in the land. In fact her, “compelling story,” has been so prominent in the media that little | Read More »
Sotomayor – Conservatives Should Rejoice! (No, Really!)
I love Obama’s pick for SCOTUS, Judge Sotomayor. As a conservative, how can I love what is certainly an unqualified, combative, leftist, anti-business, reverse discrimination loving judicial appointment? There are many, many reasons. 1) Judge Sotomayor is not an intellectual giant (that’s the nice way of putting it). Sure, she’s going to be a dependable liberal vote (as was Souter, the justice she is going | Read More »
Opposing Sotomayor: A Line in the Sand
As Andrew C. McCarthy wrote on Tuesday, “It’s not the rule of law, it’s the rule of lawyers: That’s the central message conveyed by Pres. Barack Obama’s nomination of Sonia Sotomayor.” She is, after all, widely admired among the Obamanist left for her empathy, not her temperament or wisdom. That plus her compelling life story and her love of Nancy Drew mysteries. We also know | Read More »
Of Course We Should Oppose Judge Sotomayor
We must oppose Sotomayor, because she is a weak addition to the Supreme Court. While in a partisan strategic sense it is quite possible that having an inferior mind installed as the next Justice is a net positive, that may not be what is best for the country.

So, what does Obama NOT want you paying attention to?!?!
Pay no attention to what is happening, we (Obama Administration) want you to focus on the “Hysterical” … oops, I mean, of course, “Historical” (read: RACE-baiting Identity Politics+, which isn’t new for Democrats/Liberals) Latina/Hispanic SCOTUS pick (not really+, maybe and maybe not, read on to discover why, but don’t expect the MSM to bother to provide any Facts)…. This is about “their side” the ObamAgenda, | Read More »

So it’s Sotomayor; another liberal who can save us
Not too much of a surprise– although a few political writers have noted that with the Obama’s selection criteria would have made Paula Abdul an equally good a choice. Sotomayor’s New Haven firefighters decision is so scary, and in my mind it mostly speaks to conservatives’ inability to communicate ideas to the masses effectively. Any educated person would realize that it is unconstitutional to favor | Read More »
It’s Common Sense to Select a Conservative for SCOTUS
Although I’m a conservative, I’d like to argue for a concept here not on the basis of a political agenda, but more on the basis of supporting the logical strands the Founding Fathers used to establish our Constitution. I think it is easily supportable that those original Framers intended to set up the framework of the constitution to be self-supporting, and internally protective. | Read More »
