Obama's pet judicial activist

By JB Williams
web posted June 1, 2009

Barack Obama and Sonia SotomayorObama names appeals court judge Sonia Sotomayor as his first Supreme Court nominee, and like his first hundred days in office, the so-called "centrist" president has once again chosen the most far left option on the table as a replacement for the very disappointing Justice Souter.

High on the list of Obama's Marxist agenda is "amnesty" for millions of illegal aliens currently bilking American taxpayers out of their future, via countless "free government services" and a laundry list of left-wing "affirmative action" initiatives that place race ahead of all other considerations.

In keeping with his rush into unbridled Marxism, Obama's need for several million new DNC voters before the 2010 mid-term election requires a pro-amnesty Justice on the Supreme Court who believes that pro-Latina activism and "policy making" is her primary responsibility on the court.

In 2001, Sonia Sotomayor, an appeals court judge, gave a speech declaring that the ethnicity and sex of a judge "may and will make a difference in our judging." -  "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life," said Judge Sotomayor.

A video recently surfaced of Judge Sotomayor asserting in 2005 that a "court of appeals is where policy is made." She then immediately adds: "And I know — I know this is on tape, and I should never say that because we don't make law. I know. O.K. I know. I'm not promoting it. I'm not advocating it. I'm — you know." [Court is Where Policy is Made]

The Perfect Leftist Pick

Judge Sotomayor is the perfect pick for leftists seeking a high court policy maker. She passes every leftist ideological litmus test under the sun. She is...

  • female
  • ethnic-American
  • a Princeton and Yale Ivy League elitist
  • a New York liberal friendly to Berkley Communists
  • a La Raza icon
  • pro-minority rule
  • pro-abortion
  • pro-illegal immigration
  • pro-amnesty for illegals
  • pro-Obamessiah affirmative action Marxism
  • pro-judicial activism

Justice is blind to race, creed or color? Or are some men more equal than others, in the eyes of the court?

Judge Sotomayor sees the judicial branch as an official "policy making" oligarchy, in line with the leftist notion that the nine member oligarchy is the final ideologically driven arbiter of truth, justice and the American way, and she has been overtly outspoken about it.

Dictator-in-Chief Obama was a very moderate sounding candidate, but he has ruled like a third world dictator since mid-November 2008, before he was even inaugurated. Staying true to his anti-Constitution Marxist roots, he has chosen a Supreme Court nominee who sees the Constitution as only an obstacle to change that must be overcome by activist judges willing to use their gavel as a hammer.

Seven Republicans Can Stop Her!

Leftists have the congressional votes they need to ram anything they want down American throats. But in the case of court appointments, the nominee will have to make it out of the Senate Judiciary Committee before they can receive a full congressional nod.

Under judicial activism, justice can be neither equal nor blind. The Constitution is bastardized for purposes of political favor. Justice becomes nothing more than a permanent political extension of a temporary resident of the White House.

Seven Republicans sit on that committee: Jeff Sessions (AL), Orrin G. Hatch (UT), Charles E. Grassley (IA). Jon Kyl (AZ), Lindsey Graham (SC), John Cornyn (TX) and Tom Coburn (OK).

All seven Republicans will have to stand opposed in order to block the appointment of the most far left jurist to be named to the Supreme Court since Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Like Justice Souter, Sotomayor is another disappointing court appointment of George H.W. Bush, which is now a hammer used by the Obama administration to beat congressional Republicans over the head, in demanding they support a far left nominee that a Republican once appointed to the court.

Despite the fact that Obama supported the Democrat blockade of Justice Alito, Obama seeks to establish that any opposition to Sotomayor on the basis of her far left views towards judicial activism will be labeled yet another act of "racism" by conservatives, who should prefer a justice willing to uphold and defend the written law of the land, rather than support a nominee who promises to use her robe to pursue a political agenda.

Liberals scream foul when they think "the right" uses a court appointment to advance their political agenda. But they demand that their elected representatives appoint only ideologically aligned activists to the court.

California's Prop 8 battle provides a perfect example of the real issue at hand in court appointments. Like other states, California courts tried to redefine the time honored definition of marriage for benefit of those seeking marital financial benefit, otherwise excluded by law.

The people of California reacted by holding a statewide referendum on the matter, overruling the judicial oligarchy with the democratic power of the people's vote, which overwhelmingly supported upholding traditional family values and the ancient definition of marriage.

Obama's Supreme Court pick sends a signal that the US Supreme Court will function in similar fashion, becoming a full-tilt leftist political oligarchy free to run roughshod over the will of Americans from sea to shining sea.

Seven Republicans stand between Obama's La Raza activist appointee and decades of left-wing judicial activism on the high court.

I predict that not one of these seven Republicans will be returned to their Senate seat if they fail to take a firm stand against leftist judicial activism by blocking the appointment of Judge Sotomayor in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Denying Sotomayor a full congressional vote is the only tool available for blocking this left-wing lurch in the high court. Contact these seven Republicans immediately and demand that they stand for the rule of law, against the current dictates of left-wing activism advanced by the Obama administration.

Act now, or don't bother complaining later! ESR
