    Possible Obama Supreme Court Pick Slapped Down Reverse Discrimination Case in One-Paragraph Opinion


    Tuesday, May 26, 2009
    By Matt Cover


    (CNSNews.com) – U.S. Appeals Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor, mentioned as a possible Supreme Court nominee, voted to deny a racial discrimination claim in a 2008 decision. She dismissed the case in a one-paragraph statement that, in the opinion of one dissenting judge, ignored the evidence and did not even address the constitutional issues raised by the case.

    The case, Ricci v. DeStefano, involved a group of 19 white firefighters and one Hispanic firefighter who filed suit in 2003 claiming that the city of New Haven, Conn., engaged in racial discrimination when it threw out the results of two promotion tests because none of the city’s black applicants had passed the tests.

    Each of the plaintiffs had passed the exam. The case is currently before the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Am I about the only one who is not surprised by this extremely leftist pick, from the most leftist President in history, who wants to legislate from the bench, in opposition to the legislatures, Congress, and is not even deferential to 'stare decisis' US Supreme Court rulings, but who wishes to advance an agenda, likely even to the point of ignoring or seeing if there is some way to get around the US Constitution??

    This nominee is most likely a true disaster in the making!!!!!

    [Sigh!]

    If confirmed, the best we can hope for is that as a Justice, she would recuse herself on these cases, if and when they should actually come before the Court.

    And, as the would-be "Junior Justice" she would be the one who has to make the coffee, answer the door for the Supreme Court, and fortunately for all of "We,the People", be the last to speak in Court discussions.

    No.

    Obama would not have nominated her if she wasn't a racist judicial activist with no respect for the Constitution.

    Obama knows what he's doing....and what I've seen is evil.
    As far as I'm concerned..... that is enough for me..... I'm not sure I want to know him so well as to know what he's doing.....

    Already, it seems, he has done exactly as he set out to do... which wasn't always in his promises.... unless one reads between the lines...... symbolism over substance, rhectoric over reality.... but his decisions come from the socialist viewpoint.... which many try to deny.... because they don't know what socialism and communism is....sibling kin.

    No surprise here. Besides being on the wrong side of guns and discrimination, she also is on the wrong side of Christian values. Not to mention her being overturned by the Supreme Court 60% of the time!:tonofbricks:

    100% through and through. America got what America voted for. I wonder when Obama's going to be coming out America's noses, you know, like the quail was came out through the Israelite noses.

    Numbers 11[18] And say thou unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow, and ye shall eat flesh: for ye have wept in the ears of the LORD, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt: therefore the LORD will give you flesh, and ye shall eat.

    [19] Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty days;

    [20] But even a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised the LORD which is among you, and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt?


    Maybe when his voters are living in tent cities and going hungry and dying for lack of health care and clean drinking water, while Obama and his crowd live off whatever fat is left of the land?

    He has already about trashed our Constitution.

    I wonder if his anti gun supporters will then understand why so many of us have been trying to protect they're right to keep and bear arms for so long?
