Antonin Scalia faults Sonia Sotomayor
for ´doubly shameful´ suggestion that
Michigan voters are racist

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:NYC RAL, 4/22/2014 5:50:32 PM

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia faulted Justice Sonia Sotomayor for making what he regards as a "shameful" suggestion that the Michigan voters who decided to ban affirmative action in college admissions were motivated by racism. Scalia wrote a concurring opinion upholding a 2006 ballot initiative that amended Michigan´s constitution to ban affirmative action. “As Justice Harlan observed over a century ago, ´[o]ur Constitution is color-blind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens,´" Scalia concluded, quoting the dissent in Plessy v. Ferguson. "The people of Michigan wish the same for their governing charter. It would be shameful for us to

Somtimes those with a head start run the race alone to finsh, because no one else was given a chance to run.

It seems the "wise Latina" really isn´t so wise at all, but that she´s just a race baiting liberal. No, she´s "the" race baiting liberal that we all knew she´d be, once seated on the high court. Disgusting.

Prejudice in favor of the right group is OK.

It´s prejudice in favor of people who we don´t like that is the problem.

Why is this so hard for conservatives to see ???

Affirmative Action is the epitome of racism. It is the elites saying to women and minorities, "You´re not good enough or smart enough to make it on your own, so we, in our great wisdom and superiority, will give you a hand. Now you owe us and we expect you to repay our generosity by voting demoncrat for the rest of your lives".

Sotomayor could be called a racist because she supports a policy that discriminates against the Asian minority in this country.

I recall in her early interviews while being confirmed that she said that felt she was not as bright as those others in the Ivy schools she attended - schools she was admitted to only because of AA. To be a little fair to her, she seems to be aware that she is where she is only because of AA and must feel it has been a necessary (and probably permanently so) bridge to bring disadvantaged groups (by nature or nurture - you decide) into the highest levels of society.

After all, the most famous example of such a policy is our very own Barry O´Bama (and his first AA FLOTUS). But his ascension, while helped by his storied Yale Law degree, was gained largely through adulation of the MSM and an emotional electorate (OK, voting against McCain was stone-cold rational). To get on the highest Court is less of a popularity contest, however, and requires at least a modicum of resume filler. Hence the right schools, the right clerical experience, the right judicial appointments etc. For all of these steps, the minority often needs to lifted up by AA rules if they are ever to get to the top.

There have been two black Supreme Court justices so far. I do not know how much AA played in their rise. Sotomayor probably thinks that it was significant.

Here´s another point that is being overlooked:
Kagan recused herself because of prior involvement.
WHY didn´t she recuse herself from the Constitutionality of Obamacare, since she had prior involvment?
Gotcha, Kagan.

Why do you think that Obama nominated Justice Sotomayor to the court? It was all about how he understood she would vote anytime any sort of racial issue came before the court. If Obama can get five more Sotomayor types on the court it would not be long before this country was entirely different.

To be fair, take the race question off the application. Admit students by merit.

When Jeb was governor down in FL, he wanted to remove AA. The outcry didn´t come from blacks, but foreign students.

Washington, DC - Americans´ confidence in Congress has sunk to a new low. Seven percent of Americans say they have "a great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in Congress as an American institution, down from the previous low of 10% in 2013. This confidence is starkly different from the 42% in 1973, the first year Gallup began asking the question. These results come from a June 5-8 Gallup poll that updated Americans´ confidence in 17 U.S. institutions that Americans either read about or interact with in government, business, and society. Americans' current confidence in Congress is not only the lowest on record,

A laboratory at Stony Brook University, working with designer Dann Roosegaarde, has developed a glowing plant by merging luciferin–which is the chemical that enables fireflies to glow–with a simple plant. The result is a plant, in dirt, that glows. Naturally. And it is awesome.

Redskins lose trademark, Harry Reid
says team will be ´forced´ to change name

In what some see as the first step to forcing the Washington Redskins football team to change their name, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday cancelled six federal trademarks of the team name because it´s “disparaging” to Native Americans. “Petitioners have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS to be disparaging,” said the decision. Fans, however, won’t see any immediate change — even if Daniel Snyder’s team eventually loses in court. That’s because all the order will do is eliminate the trademark the team has on merchandise. The Redskins are expected to appeal.

WASHINGTON — The White House said Wednesday it has found no emails between any person in the executive office of the president and a top Internal Revenue Service official who has been connected to the improper scrutiny of political groups. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the White House searched for all communications between the former IRS official, Lois Lerner, and executive office personnel. "We found zero emails," he said. He said the search discovered three emails in which a third party emailed both Lerner and executive office staff. He said one was spam and two others were from a person seeking

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration. For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama´s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I´ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a

Washington -- I´ll let you know what´s going on, but I don´t need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq. The White House meeting sounded more like a listening session for the top Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate about options for helping Iraq´s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad that Obama is considering. According to a White House statement, Obama went over U.S. efforts to "strengthen the capacity of Iraq´s security forces to confront the threat" from

At a time when debate is swirling over the assertion that 97 percent of scientists endorse man-made global warming, Secretary of State John Kerry – a frequent citer of the 97 percent figure – in a speech Wednesday nudged the figure up to “at least 98, 99 percent.” “When it comes to climate change, when it comes to food security, we are literally facing a moment of adversity – perhaps even dire necessity,” Kerry said at a State Department food security award ceremony. “It’s hard to convince people – hard to convince people of a challenge that isn’t immediately tangible

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that President Obama is fully engaged in the situation in Iraq – even though he spent last weekend golfing. Carney was asked about former Vice President Dick Cheney’s op-ed in The Wall Street Journal criticizing the President for golfing instead of paying attention to world affairs. “I think it’s pretty clear that this President has been paying close attention to this and has been engaging regularly with his national security team,” Carney said, praising Obama for deliberating carefully about the use of force in Iraq. Karl cited the op-ed which asserted that “rarely

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits. No, I haven’t read it

President Obama´s approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina, according to a new survey from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News. In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president.

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer apparently doesn’t think Southern men are manly. Following Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor’s stunning loss last week, Mr. Schweitzer initial response, according to a profile in The National Journal, was, “men in the South, they are a little effeminate.” “They just have effeminate mannerisms,” Mr. Schweitzer said. “If you were just a regular person, you turned on the TV, and you saw Eric Cantor talking, I would say—and I’m fine with gay people, that’s all right—but my gaydar is 60-70 percent.” “But he’s not, I think, so I don’t know.

According to the Daily Beast, O´Reilly told the audience, “I’m not Rush Limbaugh or Al Franken, where everything has to fit into my worldview… I’m a fact-based guy. A lot of people don’t understand that.” O´Reilly made his remarks about being a "fact-based guy" days after he tried to convince his viewers that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) did not lose his primary race last week to Dave Brat because of the amnesty issue.
