That is a term President Obama uses often and today he went another step toward making that term a reality. Obama's appointment of Judge Sotomayor is a perfect example of the change Obama believes in. His idea of remaking America come from the mentoring of those who dislike the nation created by our founding fathers. I had a call on WBT/Charlotte the other day from a lady who said that Obama "seems so sincere" when he speaks. She went on to say that any thing in his past didn't matter because he "seems so sincere." One only has to read his book to see who Obama looked up too as a young person. I dare say that not one good role model is in that group. We are all familiar with the Church that Obama attended in Chicago, the money he gave to the racist bigotry and anti-American retoric of Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Remember also, that Obama in an radio interview several years ago saying that the U.S. Constitution is outdated. What esle do you need to know? The America that Obama envisions is one that is little resemblance to the one created by our Founding Fathers. Today's appointment of a radical leftist is example that Obama intends to impose his socialist and radical will upon the American people. If the Constitution is "outdated" then he must have those on the Supreme Court who share his views. Now, we have a judge who said that as a hispanic woman she should be smarter than white males?
"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.” The full story click here:
I would like to point out to the judge that it was those "old white men" who wrote the U.S. Constitution and put the framework in place so that someone as herself could become a Judge one day.
Watch the video on the newsmax.com site where Judge Sotomayor talks about making laws(policy) from the bench. This is not what the founding fathers intended for a judicial system. They had faced a corrupt judicial process in England and thought this branch of government should be the weakest of the three. An over reaching judiciary was a great fear of the founders.
While President Obama may remake the Supreme Court with radical judicial activists, the biggest concern now may be whether he is eligible to be President at all. The question of Obama's lack of a birth certificate continues. His vague answer about a national billboard campaign asking "where's the birth certificate" by Worldnetdaily.com was incredible. Obama said "it isn't a simple process." Excuse me? I had to have a birth certificate to get my drivers license and to get married, but he doesn't have to prove it to the American people that he was born in this country? The U.S. Constitution says a President must be "natural born" which implies birth within the borders of the U.S. or it's territories. Members of Obama's own family have said he was born in Kenya. His book details travels that he supposedly made as a young person and U.S. citizens were barred from travel to some of those countries. It appears that one only has to sign an affidavit declaring they are eligible and not prove it. The "certificate of live birth" from Hawaii doesn't count as many have been issued such a certificate but not actually born within the state.
What happens if, and I believe it will, the truth comes out? Will a democratic congress consider this "high crimes and misdemenors" and impeach him? Or, will a democratic controlled congress and a left-leaning court reinterpret the term "natural born." This could be a serious impending constitutional crisis. One that the media has almost totally ignored and, frankly, much of the so-called conservative talk media as well.
Sotomayor Nomination an Obama Slap at Second Amendment
BELLEVUE, WA – The nomination of Second Circuit Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor to replace retiring Justice David Souter on the U.S. Supreme Court is a slap at gun rights and the Second Amendment, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.Judge Sotomayor, a New York native, ruled on a Second Circuit Appeals Court panel that the Second Amendment is not a fundamental right and does not apply to the states in the case of Maloney v. Cuomo. This ruling is in direct conflict with a Ninth Circuit Court ruling in the Nordyke v. King case in California that the Second Amendment is incorporated through the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.“While Democrats in Congress have been making great strides in the gun rights arena, refusing to consider a renewal of the Clinton gun ban, and offering overwhelming bipartisan support for legislation allowing citizens to carry firearms in national parks, President Obama just demonstrated that he prefers judges who oppose Second Amendment rights,” said SAF founder Alan M. Gottlieb.Incorporation may be taken up by the high court during its next session beginning in October, because attorneys in the Maloney case plan to appeal in late June.“If the Maloney appeal is accepted by the Supreme Court,” Gottlieb wondered, “would Justice Sotomayor – provided she is confirmed – recuse herself from deliberations?”Judge Sotomayor has written an opinion that declined to order the release of certain information under the Freedom of Information Act. In one case, according to SCOTUSblog, she wrote that the “unwarranted invasion of privacy” for individuals whose names would be release under an FOIA request outweighed the public interest.“Would a Justice Sotomayor be just as protective of the privacy rights of concealed carry permit holders if a newspaper wanted to publish that information,” Gottlieb asked. “We hope that during Senate confirmation hearings, someone asks about her positions on incorporation and the privacy rights of gun owners. The Second Amendment needs to be expanded, not eviscerated.”
