Objection! Hearsay!

Assigned Reading: White House: Sotomayor Says She Chose Word Poorly
(FROM: Associated Press)

I don’t know which word (singular) Judge Sotomayor might have admitted to choosing poorly; for all I know, it might be a typographical error on the part of the AP. What I do know, however, is that the White House, president and Robert Gibbs are saying that other people have mentioned that Sonia Sotomayor said that she “would have restated” her overtly racist statement that Hispanic female judges would come to better conclusions than their white male counterparts.

I also know that, if this were a Obama-era terrorist tribunal, such a statement from the White House, president and Gibbs would be tossed out as hearsay evidence. Other people have mentioned to the White House that she would likely want to restate her opinion? Sorry, that’s inadmissible — such a statement might as well have been obtained through waterboarding or some other “stressful” or “unpleasant” situation, like sitting through a screening of Milk.

If a white male nominee to the United States Supreme Court had been on record with such a prejudicial comment, he would withdraw. Even if Sotomayor chooses not to do so herself, the very least she could do would be to admit her wish to better choose her word(s) herself.

Not that she should be believed, though. It’s obvious, from looking at her writings at Princeton, that this woman is as race-obsessed as the man who appointed her. I would not be surprised if, in the coming days and weeks, we learned that the very same sentiment, if not the exact same statement, was repeated time and time again to many, many people.

    I don’t like her word(s), either.

    Obama said that he thinks she would want to restate her comment and Gibbs said that she chose her words poorly. So the problem isn’t really what she said. It is just how she said it. I feel so much better about things.

    She needs to withdraw her name and her words, now. If she had any shred of dignity, she would do just that.

    From this man’s wife to his picks – they are all angry, and hate filled. How can anyone of us have any “empathy” for a man who surrounds himself with hate?

    In response to Fox News’ coverage of Mr. Gibbs’ response concerning the online certification of live birth, Dr. Ron Polarik, one of two individuals who have gone on record via affidavit in the case Keyes v. Lingle attesting to the lack of authenticity of the certification, wrote the following email to Fox anchor Bret Baier:

    Dear Bret:
    Congratulations to you and FOXNEWS for being the first news agency to bring Obama’s birth certificate controversy into the mainstream.
    This controversy, however, goes far beyond the question of Obama’s citizenship status — it also raises the specter of President Obama’s involvement in document fraud.
    What the Obama campaign actually posted on its website on June 12, 2008, is a forged document image and not a real copy of Obama’s birth certificate. I spent five months conducting intensive research on the document images alleged to have been made from Obama’s “original birth certificate.” My research proves that the document image posted on Obama’s website and on other pro-Obama websites, was fabricated using Photoshop, and that no such document actually exists.

    The power of “presentment” is not some fanciful concept but a very real provision stated unequivocally in the 5th Amendment.

    No Federal regulation can trump the Constitution. The Constitution says we the people can bring “Presentments”.

    “Unlike [a] [c]ourt, whose jurisdiction is predicated upon a specific case or controversy, the grand jury `can investigate merely on suspicion that the law is being violated, or even because it wants assurance that it is not.’ ” United States v. R. Enterprises, 498 U. S. ___, ___ (1991) (slip op. 4) (quoting United States v. Morton Salt Co., 338 U.S. 632, 642-643 (1950)).

    You have a choice. You can sit and do nothing…or you can exercise your Constitutional rights. It’s that simple.

    Either join a Citizens Grand Jury:

    or

    assist in filing Grand Jury Presentments and Commander Fitzpatrick’s
    Criminal Complaint.

    Just don’t say there is nothing you can do about this situation.

    I wonder, if Obama openly admits that he’s Kenyan citizen, received election money from al-Qaeda and doesn’t give a rat’s behind for the Constitution, and the Congress votes to keep him in the office regardless – will THAT be enough to get you into action? The so-called “people of America” are being tested for elasticity and so far the results are very pleasant to the liberal eye.

    Naturally this is a big story, however I can’t shake one item that is getting little attention.

    How can any judge be considered to sit on the Supreme Court especially one who is an Appellate Judge, when 60 percent of her decisions have been overrulled?

    What does this say? And why is nothing being said about this disgraced knowledge of the Constitution of the United States of America?

    Don’t overlook the possibility that Obama has known all along that she was unconfirmable but would convince the Hispanics that he was “their man” in the White House. All the blame will then be placed on the Republicans for shooting her down and, in the next election, the Democrats will get 99% of the Hispanic vote.

    What a plan!

    Aha! But can you prove that _Obama_ is responsible for this forgery??? Obama is a law-abiding citizen – of _course_ he wouldn't do such a thing. One of his minions must have done it. Without his knowledge or permission.

    >>when 60 percent of her decisions have been overruled>>

    Be careful of this one – apparently it isn't the killer fact that it's supposed to be. It has to do with a certiori writs and the fact that the SC rejects about 70% of them. I don't know enough to clarify, but have seen note taken of this.

    Maybe Jeff will address the issue?

    “Her brother, Dr. Juan Sotomayor, is a physician in North Syracuse, N.Y., whose practice doesn’t accept Medicaid or Medicare — programs for the poor and elderly — according to its Web site.”

    … apparently this trait does not run in the family and is not considered appropriate (or usefull?) for a medical doctor.

    Bitching, moaning, blogging and praying is NOT going to save this country…… even voting has become pointless. Call me Eyore but that’s my take on it. Hey Rix, let’s roll.

    Andy Martin has a new column on his website that says Sotomayor is a deep-closeted lesbian. I don't think he would be so blatently open about it if it were not the truth. And if it is the truth – Senators, the media and the people should be informed about it because the gay marriage issue is going to come up in the Supreme Court and she would bring a huge bias alongwith her female, Hispanic upbringing background bias
