Did Sotomayor Lie to Senators?

Did Sotomayor Lie to Senators?

Did Judge Sonia Sotomayor twist the truth when she met with Senators before her confirmation hearings began? Does anyone on the Judiciary Committee have the guts to call her on it?

“Is there anything the Senate or Congress can do if a nominee says one thing seated at that table and does something exactly the opposite once they [are on the Supreme Court]?” Senator Arlen Specter asked Judge Sonia Sotomayor on Wednesday. When Sotomayor promises her “fidelity” to the rule of law the Senators simply have to trust that she is telling them the truth. Unfortunately, there is significant evidence that Sotomayor has been less than honest in private meetings with the Senators.

This past Saturday, The Wall Street Journal reported on a series of interviews it had done with Senators about their private meetings with Sotomayor. Incredibly, every one of Sotomayor’s private statements to the Senators, as reported by The Journal, were not only false, but she should also have known that they were false when she made them. Each inaccurate statement to the Senators involved speeches the judge had given numerous times and that she had clearly reviewed before meeting with the members of the Judiciary Committee.

For instance, shortly after Sotomayor’s nomination, her now infamous Berkeley law school speech began to receive public scrutiny. Understandably, many Senators asked her about her statement that: “a wise Latina woman with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white man.”

Sotomayor apparently told Republican Senators in private meetings that those words were “inadvertent” and “inartful,” — implying that her statement was an accident. President Obama himself tried to explain this statement as just a one-time utterance that she would have worded differently if she had the chance to do it all over again.

But after these private meetings with Senators it was revealed that Sotomayor had used the equivalent phrases during at least seven different speeches over a period of a decade. It is one thing for Obama to explain this as an accidental, single occurrence; it is something quite different for Sotomayor, especially now that we know that she repeatedly made such statements.

But have her statements to Democrats been any more accurate than those to Republicans?

This line speaks volumes; But have her statements to Democrats been any more accurate than those to Republicans?

I have said this before, and it bears repeating, Sonia Sotomayor is a racist, a sexist, an anti Second Amendment, pro abortion, liberal automaton that toes the liberal line perfectly. Those are MY beliefs and there is NOTHING that she can do or say to convince me otherwise!

FOXNews and John Lott have done a great bit of work here, Sotomayor has been thoroughly and completely exposed for exactly what she is. Sotomayor has a reputation for being a fiery, hot blooded Type-A personality on the bench and is known for speaking her mind. Even when there wasn’t a thought to be had.

What the American public, and the Senators sitting on this panel saw, was a well coached stooge that is doing exactly as she was told to do. Be subdued, never show any emotion, especially anger. She was playing a part in a play that is going to shape the direction this nation travels for many years. It is NOT a good direction of travel.

After the last message I just sent to my 2 U.S. Senators, Cornyn and Hutchison, I may well be on the national watch list in the morning. If I’m not there already.

Senators: The headline reads: Sotomayor on her way as GOP pledges quick vote

I have always heard it said, ‘a word to the wise is sufficient’.

Here’s 2 words for you, Political Suicide.

That is exactly what you will be doing IF you vote to approve Sonia Sotomayor. Committing political suicide.

That statement was not meant to be a threat, not in any way. It IS a warning, but it’s not a threat. Cornyn and Hutchison are in control of their political future among Conservative and Republican Texans. I may be wrong but somehow, I just don’t see even the most moderate of RINOs accepting Sotomayor as a good selection for a seat on the Supreme Court.

When you couple that with the fact that MANY Texans are already more than just a little bit perturbed with both of our U.S. Senators over past transgressions, the Bush bailout, amnesty for illegals, no border fence, the Immigrant Dream act and so forth, as I said, a vote FOR the confirmation of Sonia Sotomayor may very well be, and personally, I hope it is, a case of political suicide.

I don’t know what it’s going to take to wake this nation up. When 9-11 occurred, it stirred a patriotic wave through America reminiscent of the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Sadly, many Americans have allowed their enthusiasm and desire to see a REAL victory to wane. Many Americans have become completely apathetic and refuse to see what the current REGIME in the Oval Office is doing to this once great nation.

There is NO victory on the horizon from the Obamanation and his band of hooligans. We are being robbed blind and the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court is merely another ploy, a tool being put in place that will allow this nation to sink further into the abyss of socialism. The ONLY chance the American people have is to expose Obama for the fraud he is and have him removed from office, and then continue to do battle with the most notoriously liberal leaders this nation has ever suffered.

Every law enforcement officer in this nation, every military officer, NCO or enlisted man took an oath to defend this nation from ALL enemies, both foreign and domestic. I hope those men and women remember their oath and will adhere to the principles of Oath Keepers.

The enemy within poses a much greater danger to America right now than all of our foreign enemies combined. The time is very near Americans, this nation was founded on dissent and revolution, and by God, this very night, dissent and revolution are brewing once again.

Deo Vindice my friends, and as many have already said, keep your powder dry!

    Just saw your link on twitter. I watched these hearings and I do think she lied. I was watching her facial expressions and I noticed that when she was asked a question on something major her eyes seemed to blink double time when she answered. What they should do is hook them up to a lie detector and then we might all know the truth.

    I listened to her response to Coburn on the 2nd Amendment when she said it was a federal issue and not a States Rights issue and started to listen more closely. Then she said that “self defense” was not a right but that defense (euphemism) was a function of the court’s interpretation of the seriousness of the threat, and knew that I dint’ live in Kansas (NY) anymore. Proud to be a Texan!

    The question is whether the woman can be stopped. The other question is whether all of this “change” can ever be reversed.

    Unfortunately it does not matter…..she is going to get approved and sit on the Supreme Court….all the Senate hearings are doing is wasting more taxpayer’s dollars…..and time…..and ultimately in our system of checks and balances we will still have the largest body of the highest paid most inefficient workers in the World…that would be Congress with the Worlds slowest court watching over them…..and of course I can’t overlook the last check in the system…..Obama….the founding fathers even with all of their own faults have got to be spinning…….

    My head hurts and I ain’t feeling too well. I’m laying back in my office chair and I keep staring at my AR15 standing there in the corner loaded with it’s 30 rnd clip and the belt on a hook with 4 more clips in their respective pouches ready to go. I’m getting so f***king tired of these g’dmmed scumassed balless pricks just rolling over and letting the liberal F**Ks stick it in just a little further every day……………………………………………………………….

    Due to my work schedule I haven’t been able to watch much of the confirmation hearings so I REALLY appreciate the updates/coverage.

    This supreme court nomination really scares me. Why? It feels like fore-shadowing to something even more horrible to come. You know like when watching a movie and the sky gradually starts to turn black? You just know the next scene isn’t going to be about eating cup-cakes.

    I can feel it deep down in my bones that something really, really awlful is beginning.

    And I feel powerless.

    She will be confirmed whether she lied or not. The good thing is that it doesn’t change the balance in the court. The bad thing is that she is an activist judge. Bad for the US.
