Sotomayor Sits Atop a Throne of Lies

Sonia Sotomayor continues to lie her way through her confirmation using carefully scripted lies to deny the judicial philosophy of leftist activism she has applied every day of her seventeen years on the bench. Obama only chose her because he knows she’ll be a doctrinaire lockstep liberal judicial activist. (Democrat presidents do not nominate swing votes.)

She’s lying when she says she only cares about following the law.

She’s lying when she says she does not intend to set policy from the bench.

She’s lying when she says she racial considerations don’t influence her decisions.

She’s lying when she says she won’t use international law to subvert American law.

Anyone who gives her history even a cursory glance knows she’s lying. But she gets up there and she lies. And the Democrat Senators know she’s lying. And the Republican senators know she’s lying. And the media know she’s lying.

Even a liberal law professor admits that Sotomayor is lying.

Which begs the question, if our leaders can lie about something that’s so blatantly obvious, how could we trust them not to lie when the facts are less obvious?

Are they lying about the objectives of the Stimulus? Are they lying about the costs of nationalized health care? Are they lying about their schemes to nationalize industry? Are they lying about global warming and cap’n tax?

Yes, yes, yes, and yes. “But politicians always lie.” OK, granted, the question is why do you put up with it.

Here’s a question: If conservatism is dying out as Democrats and Megan McCain now claim, if “we are all socialistis now” as Newsweek put it, then why does someone like Sotomayor find it necessary to deny her previous record and pretend to be as judicially conservative as Roberts and Scalia even with a filibuster-proof Democrat majority?

If the left’s ideas are really in ascendancy, why can’t she let her affirmative-action, internal law, judicial activist freak flag fly?

Confess you lying liars! Confess!

Confess you lying liars! Confess!

Update: Obama and Sotomayor even lie about being baseball fans.

President Obama says he’s a longtime fan of the Chicago White Sox, but he calls Comiskey Park “Cominskey.” And Judge Sotomayor, in her testimony yesterday, asserted that “Few judges could claim they love baseball more than I do” and that she “grew up … watching baseball.” But a March 28, 1995, story in USA Today, titled “U.S. District judge not a baseball fan,” stated that Sotomayor “grew up a few miles from Yankee Stadium but says she knows little about the sport.” And yesterday she said that “many residents of Washington, D.C. have asked me to look at the Senators” as her new team. But as even a casual baseball fan would know, the D.C. team is the Nationals, not the Senators.

    I’m guessing that the serpent in the Garden of Eden was a Wise Leftist Latina lady. S-s-s-s-s-s-s-s-s!!!!

    The idea that someone like this will be among the group that has the final word on my rights under the US Constitution……is a terrifying suggestion. I’m horrified that someone like this would become judge of a dog show, much less a lifetime-appointed Supreme Court justice.

    What I can’t figure out, is why what few Senators we have left, aren’t planning to vote NO as a bloc.

    Cylar,

    I know you know what we all know about knowing why the (R) Senators are voting the way they know that we know the way they’ll vote.

    Follow the $$$$$.

    Ya know?

    Doktor Discernment
