The leading Judiciary Committee Republican is charging that Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor is "out of the mainstream" of legal thinking and has a very activist judicial profile.

Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama made the assertion just hours before Sotomayor, who would be the third woman to join the court, was to face her initial confirmation hearing.

It’s all over but the crying. There’s no way she doesn’t get in. Not when they have 60 votes.

If all eight GOP members of the Judiciary Committee stick together and vote “no” on her nomination, it goes nowhere.

Until the Dems change the Committe rules, that is.

Does the GOP have the guts to do this? Sotomayor is clearly unqualified to be on the Supreme Court.

The Dems skewered every SC nominee by the Republicans since Bork in 1987.

It should not be a matter of letting the President have their nominees, when they are radical, unqualified, and prejudiced. Look at the radical Ginsburg, who finally admitted that eugenices was a reason for Roe v. Wade, in her view.

Democrats are the enemy of freedom.

That is my understanding of the rules - if there is not at least one yes vote from the minority (Republicans in this case) members on the committee then the nomination is dead in the water.

But during a Megan Kelly (FNC) interview of Sessions last week she asked the question - paraphrasing "If all Republicans on the committee vote no, then the nomination does not move forward, could that happen"?"

Sessions responded "I don't think that is true at least it is not the way the committee has operated over the last few years."

Just Damn!

CSPAN COVERAGE: Confirmation Hearings Begin for Judge Sonia Sotomayor - 10:00 a.m. edt

Leahy, Sessions Announce Witness List For Sotomayor Hearing

_________________________________________________________

Sessions "Flabbergasted" by Sotomayor's Philosophy

Excerpt:

Republican Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama said today that Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor's judicial philosophy, as articulated in her speeches, marks "a blow, I think, at the very ideal of American justice."

"In a number of her speeches, for example, she has advocated a view that suggests that your personal experiences, even prejudices — she uses that word — it's expected that they would influence a decision you make," he told "Face The Nation" host Bob Schieffer.

*snip*

"When you show empathy for one party, Bob, you necessarily show a bias against another group."

________________________________

Sonia Sotomayor cramming in practice sessions near the West Wing

Excerpt:

These days, federal appeals court Judge Sonia Sotomayor is not in her New York chambers. She's not weighing cases or interrogating counsel or even writing opinions.

Instead, with hearings to start Monday in the historic, much-anticipated Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation process, Sotomayor is holed up in a small office in the Eisenhower Old Executive Office Building next to the White House. "She's got to hit the books," said Thomas Goldstein, a D.C. appellate attorney. "They can ask you about any part of the law. And she's got to be ready for that."

In an earlier round of get-acquainted-sessions, Sotomayor met with 70 of the Senate's 100 ......members, which should help the cordiality quotient. And the newest senator, Minnesota's Al Franken, has already tipped his hand that he plans to ask her about campaign finance laws, expected to come before the court this session.

Oh crud! It’s a done deal, Lindsey Graham and Orrin Hatch are on the committee. They will vote for, Graham’s already hinted he would. In other news though, I would kinda like to see a staunch republican go toe to toe with the newest senator on the committee, you know the one I’m talking about. He claims he was a “comedian”. I never laughed though. :/

*snips*

The amicus curiae brief, reported late last month by U.S. News and World Report’s Bonnie Erbe, addressed the Supreme Court concerning the 1989 case Webster v. Reproductive Health Services.

The case involved a complaint by various Missouri abortion providers against a state law defining conception as the beginning of life and disallowing public facilities to be used for abortions.

The Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund (PRLDEF), on whose Board of Directors Sonia Sotomayor served at the time, was among the many pro-abortion interest groups that signed the brief.

In summarizing the interests of the petitioning parties, the brief states: “All Amici share an urgent concern that the Court clearly and unequivocally reaffirm Roe v. Wade.... They fear that any tampering with the right to abortion recognized in Roe will have a powerful, adverse impact on the liberty, equality and health of poor women and women of color.”

The brief also argues that laws requiring abortions to be performed in hospitals would place undue burden on minority and low-income women seeking abortions.

“If, as a member of PRLDEF’s board, Judge Sotomayor had objected to any of this language, she could have attempted to stop the group from lending its name to the amicus brief, and she did not,” wrote Erbe.

“Big sigh of relief from the pro-choice crowd!”

“Now we know why President Obama said that Judge Sotomayor shared his view of ‘the Constitution’ and why the White House reassured pro-abortion organizations,” commented Americans United for Life Senior Counsel Clarke Forsythe.

“If Judge Sotomayor holds the position that she signed onto via the PRDF’s brief, then, if an abortion-related case comes up on the docket, it will lead to her reading the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) into the Constitution by judicial interpretation.”

The brief is significant as one more clue amid a relatively small pile of evidence that shines light on Sotomayor’s thoughts on abortion. However, in the days since President Obama nominated her to fill the seat of retiring Supreme Court Justice David Souter, a clearer picture has emerged of Sotomayor as a steadily liberal nominee who is expected to uphold Roe v. Wade.

After meeting with Sotomayor last week, pro-abortion senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) agreed that the nominee made it “very clear” that she would not favor overturning Roe v. Wade.

Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court - Sonia Sotomayor - Questionnaire

http://judiciary.senate.gov/nominations/SupremeCourt/Sotomayor/SoniaSotomayor-Questionnaire.cfm

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is going to be very interesting ... there’ll probably be a lot of bloviating, as each Judiciary Committee member will be getting 30 minute sessions.

I can’t remember what the old timeframe was, but it sure wasn’t 30 minutes. I’m wondering who changed it, why, what the motive was, and what will be the result as the senators fill that time with their questions and her responses.

____________________________________________________

*snip*

THE LEAD PLAYERS

Chairman Leahy, D-Vt.

If he looks familiar, it could be because he’s been in the Senate for more than three decades and participated in hearings of every Supreme Court nominee since now-retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Or it could be the Batman movies. With white hair and bifocals, the man with the gavel has had cameos in all of them, and a speaking part in “The Dark Knight.”

Leahy, 69, will be in charge of keeping senators to their

allotted 30 minutes for questions,

tamping down the inevitable showboating and issuing stern warnings to any protesters who get out of hand.

It’s good to be chairman, by the way: He can allot himself all the time he wants to rebut points Republicans try to make or to ask clarifying questions of the nominee. Leahy was a state prosecutor for eight years before coming to the Senate. The grandfather of five is an avid photographer seen at previous hearings snapping pictures of news photographers as they snap photos of him.

___

Ranking Republican Jeff Sessions of Alabama.

Taking his first turn as the lead Republican at a Supreme Court hearing, the 62-year-old Sessions will sit next to Leahy and, in broad terms, try to reassure the vanquished GOP base that their interests are being represented in this most visible forum.

Sessions wants to know whether Sotomayor allows personal views, not just the law, to influence her rulings. He has raised doubts about her support for the constitutional right to keep and bear arms and her association with a Puerto Rican civil rights group before she became a federal judge 17 years ago.

But conservative critics of Sotomayor have been unable to get the Senate’s 40 Republicans to stand together against her, and Sessions has said he doesn’t “sense a filibuster in the works” to block her confirmation.

Personally and politically, he’s got big shoes to fill and a delicate line to walk in this role. Sessions is succeeding the sharp-tongued Specter, chairman at the previous two Supreme Court hearings.

Sessions, in his third term, has plenty of experience grilling witnesses; he’s a former federal prosecutor. But he has stumbled over issues of race. Comments he allegedly made sank his own nomination by President Ronald Reagan to be a federal judge.

Rest here:

President Reagan always wore a suit coat in the Oval Office out of respect for the historic room.

As we see in the pic above even Carter covered up his shirt sleeves with the famous sweater he wore when he ordered the room temperature set at freezing to "save energy".

Then we see the Cheshire Rat laughing at the people of America attired in full polo shirt disrespect.

I suspect his golf bag and cleats are to be found every day atop a $93,000 antique Duncan Phyfe table next to the entry door.

As a district judge, she advanced First Amendment religious claims by tossing out a state prison rule banning members of a religious sect from wearing colored beads to ward off evil spirits, and by rejecting a suburban law preventing the display of a 9-foot-high menorah in a park.

In 1995, she released the suicide note of former White House aide Vincent Foster, acting on litigation brought by the Wall Street Journal under the Freedom of Information Act.

Sotomayor, who has a brother who became a doctor, presided over a civil trial in 1996 in which the family of a lawyer who died from AIDS sued the makers of the movie “Philadelphia,” contending that Hollywood stole their story.

The case was settled, but not before the movie with its dramatic courtroom showdowns was played for the jury in its entirety, prompting Sotomayor to caution: “I don’t expect melodrama here. I don’t want anybody aspiring to what they see on the screen.”

Totally ... and I found this in my surfing

###

Back in his “Saturday Night Live” days in 1991, during the X-rated Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings, Al Franken played a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee less interested in the nominee’s qualifications for the U.S. Supreme Court than in his own chances with a cute government receptionist.

Beyond surreal and sickening.
