Obama High Court Choice a Globalist at Heart
By James P. Tucker, Jr.
a miracle can prevent Senate confirmation of Sonia Sotomayor as Supreme
Court justice, but Republicans have a patriotic duty to let the people
know she is an unwise—even dangerous—choice for the job.
she had been on the court, the ruling favoring white firemen who had
been denied promotion after passing tough tests because no blacks or
Hispanics were capable would have been sustained and public safety put
at risk. (The high court had been asked to reject the case ending the
fireman’s fight. Instead, the federal appeals court was ordered
to hear the case.)
Former President George Bush’s
appointments to the Supreme Court should be hailed by all patriots:
Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito. They, with
Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia, formed the court’s
“right wing.” With unpredictable help from
fence-sitterAnthony Kennedy, the court was able to make a few good
decisions. With Miss Sotomayor, the court will lurch left. She joins
the court’s left wing as an advocate of subordinating the U.S.
Supreme Court to the opinions of foreign courts—a frightening
surrender of sovereignty.
On April 28, she delivered a speech
claiming that “unless American courts are more open to discussing
the ideas raised by foreign cases . . . we are going to lose influence
in the world.”
said judges have correctly looked to foreign authorities “to help
us understand whether our understanding of our own constitutional
rights fell into the mainstream of human thinking. To the extent we
have freedom of ideas, international law and foreign law will be very
important in the discussion of how to think about unsettled issues in
our legal system” she said in April.
In a 2007 forward to the book The International Judge,
Miss Sotomayor wrote that judges should “all attempt to cobble
together a culture of justice-seeking in a changed world.”
to her words, Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), ranking Republican on the
Judiciary Committee that is holding hearings on her nomination,
signaled that lawmakers will educate Americans on her lunatic-left
views. He said: “Moral authority is undermined when we allow
foreign law, which we had nothing to do with, to impact our law. That
is a pernicious thing.”
Miss Sotomayor is a lifelong
advocate of taxpayer-funded abortion on demand. When Sen. Jim DeMint
(R-S.C.) asked if the unborn had any rights whatsoever, she replied
that she had “never thought about it.” (Not thinking is
characteristic of the lunatic left.)
Miss Sotomayor is trying to
hide her position on gun control but she is fiercely opposed to the
Second Amendment. She has ruled that the Supreme Court’s recent
upholding of the right of Americans to bear arms applies only to
federal lands (the case had been filed in Washington). It does not
apply to the states, she argued.
“Her opinion was that the
hundreds of millions of Americans in the 50 states do not have a
fundamental right to bear arms,” DeMint said. “She refused
to back away from that opinion in my meeting with her.”
view that a Hispanic woman justice would render better opinions than a
white male have been, correctly, widely reported. But the mainstream
media has maintained a near-absolute silence on her views that the
Supreme Court should be guided by foreign courts and views.
