From the July 2009 Idaho Observer:

Obama high court nomination implies that Founders intent was to protect racism, sexism, statism; fraud

Obama in a tender moment with his choice for retiring Justice Souter’s replacement on the U.S. Supreme Court. Obama claims Judge Sotomayor will apply the founding principles to difficult contemporary questions.

Upon announcing his nominee to replace retiring Justice David Souter on the U.S. Supreme Court on May 26, 2009, Obama described the sacred responsibility of choosing someone who has "a rigorous intellect, a mastery of the law, an ability to hone in on the key issues and provide clear answers to complex legal questions."

Obama also explained that Supreme Court jurists have a lifetime appointment and "…they are charged with the vital task of applying principles put to paper more than 20 centuries ago (sic) to some of the most difficult questions of our time."

Then Obama nominated New York Second Circuit Federal Appeals Court Judge Sonya Sotomayor. Appointed to the Southern District of New York by GHW Bush in 1991, Bronx born, Puerto Rican Sotomayor (55) would be the 111th Supreme Court justice. She would also be the high court’s third woman, first Hispanic and first insulin-shooting, type 1 diabetic.

Generally considered a "liberal," Sotomayor has ruled on several controversial cases that are more a reflection of her biases as a Latino/minority/woman from the Bronx than the Founders intent (from more than "20 centuries" ago). "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with a richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life."

Had any of the white males currently seated on the Supreme Court made such a statement of race and gender bias during their careers they would not have been approved as a Supreme Court nominee. But it is because of these biases that Sotomayor is now being considered.

Federal judges are bound by a code that says they shouldn’t join any organization that discriminates by race, religion, or nationality but Sotomayor, who publicly identifies with her "Latino soul," is also an activist in the primarily Mexican organization "La Raza," which literally means "the race." She was also a member of the women’s only "Belizean Grove Club" (which is modeled after the infamous men’s only "Bohemian Grove") then recently quit after claims that the 115-member club of professional women practiced "invidious discrimination."

Sotomayor also believes that Second Amendment protection extends only to federal laws—not state or local ones.

Five of Sotomayor’s appellate rulings have been appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, three of which have been overturned.

Journalist Devvy Kidd recently reported that the confirmation committee is ignoring evidence that Sotomayor is a willing participant in a judicially-run bankruptcy fraud scheme.
