It is a Sad day in America when the Law of the Land is Ignored — yet again

Sandra Crosnoe - Finding Gems & Sharing Them

It is a sad day for America when the law of the land is ignored, yet again. 

Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed by the Senate to the Supreme Court today.

Sadly, ignoring our Constitution is happening all too often.  I was actually preparing to write this article, when I discovered that Jeannie had already done so and a lot better than I could.  So I am providing a snapshot of her page and a link to her post for you all to read and weep.  One of the  saddest things is that the msm made this confirmation about race when nothing could be further from the truth.  The Obama administration that should have been about healing race relations continues to work to divide on race issues.

Big news flash!  The Constitution unites us and protects us all if we will but submit ourselves to coming under the rule of law and insisting upon that from our leaders as well.

The one thing that I want to add to this post is a list of the votes on this matter and that will be added to the bottom of the post as soon as I find it or one of our readers provides it.  I will be adding the link and a list of all the names and how they voted because this vote will be a bellweather vote just like the Bush Bailout and the Obama Stimulus votes.

Please read Jeannie’s entire post and allow a tear to fall;  then get on your knees and pray because we need a mighty miracle of awakening and repentance in our land!  We need to both understand and appreciate and protect the Rule of Law.  Empathy?  Whose and when and for what purpose?

It is a Sad Day in America . . .

STOP Sotomayor Now — Vote this week!

Sandra Crosnoe - Finding Gems & Sharing Them

STOP Nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to US Supreme Court

Sotomayor hearingsPosition: Senate members should oppose her nomination, vocally.

Reasons:

Sotomayor has made public statements and issued rulings that indicate:

  • Lack of respect for the right to bear arms
  • Racial and gender bias
  • Lack of respect for property rights
  • Has indicated “empathy” is a higher priority than following the law

Further:

  • Made a statement that appellate court judges make law
  • Her testimony last week has troubling contradictions in contrast to her writings and the facts of her life.
  • During her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, she showed a surprising lack of technical legal knowledge during some questioning, particularly in an interchange with Senator Hatch.
  • Has had a high rate of judicial error – 40%+ (her rulings were overturned)
  • Supports abortion through her statement that Roe v. Wade is settled law

Principles:

  • We should oppose those who are not clearly strict constructionists
  • Supporters of the Constitution in the Senate need to start showing themselves
  • Members of the Senate need to put the President on notice regarding this and future nominees to the Court

Status:

Conclusion of the hearings process, no clear date available regarding full Senate floor vote

Links:

Gun Owners of America has been closely watching and researching this nominee, providing very good general information (beyond the Second Amendment) on their site.

GOA’s Executive Director Larry Pratt, was a guest on a special episode of the Blog Talk Radio show The Constitutional Liberty Coalition Gets Grizzly on Thursday, July 16 to discuss the Sotomayor nomination. Larry gave a good deal of detailed information about Sotomayor and why her nomination should be opposed. You can listen by clicking here.

Former Supreme Court Nominee Robert Bork made statements regarding Sotomayor and recent history on the confirmation process on Newsmaxx, Tuesday.

Wall Street Journal article on how little information was gleaned from Sotomayor’s testimony.

______________________

SUGGESTED ACTIONS:

  • Maintain pressure on US Senate and House representatives (contact them)
  • On particular issues, contact your Governor, State legislators, county, and city representatives.
  • Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper
  • Forward this message to everyone in your contacts list

CONTACTING CONGRESS:

  1. Call the office for your Senator or House representatives
  2. Ask to speak directly with your Senator or Congressman
  3. Be sure to give your zip code so they know you are a constituent
  4. Be polite, but firm
  5. The next best method to a phone call is a fax, the least effective is email (make the phone ring in the office!)

WHY CONTACT YOUR STATE & LOCAL REPRESENTATIVES?

bill of rights

  • Several bills currently moving through Congress, if passed, seriously encroach on states’ rights, and in turn will put a lot of pressure on county and city governments.
  • It is essential that our state governments assert their sovereign rights
  • Although State legislatures are not currently in session this is the period during which legislators have the time to consider issues that need attention, or bills they will sponsor.

Calls needed to Senate on all bills mentioned below; House as well on Health Care Bill.

Where are the champions on these issues – melt the phones and tell us about the calls!

_________________________________________________________________

Defeat S. 909 Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Bill

Status: Currently in the Senate, this bill could come up for a vote as early as TODAY.

As reported on the Boston.com site, this hate crimes legislation has now been attached to a Defense spending bill that is currently on the Senate floor.

There are many problems with “hate crimes” legislation, including that violates the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment by providing special protections to some citizens it does not afford to others. It further violates the First Amendment by suppressing speech and religion.

On the Truth Tellers site, there is a video featuring testimony of Attorney General Eric Holder admitting that the bill doesn’t provide equal protection for all.

Defeat Sotomayor for Supreme Court

Status: Currently in Senate Judiciary Com and will pass out of committee easily. This should be a target vote and we should ask all constitutionalists R’s and D’s and I’s to oppose this confirmation based on:

1) right to keep and bear arms

2) private property and the respect thereof

3) prolife core issue

4) ethical standing before the committee

5) judicial temperment

For more information, visit the Gun Owners of America site

Defeat of Pass Act

Status: Currently in Senate.

For more information on this bill visit the following sites:

Stop Real ID Coalition

OK-Safe, read the July 2 posting

Defeat of Socialized Medicine

Status: Currently being proposed by Obama Administration, moved out of the Senate Health Committee on July 15

This bill may come up for a vote before Congress goes on the summer break.

A government take over of the US health care system will be a disaster both to our economy and to the quality of medical care.

For more information, see

The Cato Institute’s “Five Myths About Socialized Medicine”

Heritage Foundation “The House Health Care Bill a Blueprint for Federal Control”

Defeat of Cap and Trade

Status: Currently in Senate, reported to be delayed until after the summer break, passed out of the House on June 26

This bill stands to have ruinous effects on our economy, significant increases in costs for utilities and purchases, and intrusion of government into nearly every part our lives.
