NOW Sotomayor urges great respect for precedents

Sonia Sotomayor, one of Barack Obama’s leftist appointments to the Supreme Court, has been in the news this week urging great respect for precedents.

She publicly warned that “caution” is a necessary element of the federal judiciary, “that overriding previous precedents risks undermining faith in the legal system,” according to a report in the Washington Examiner.

She cited the Dobbs decision from June, where a majority of the court determined that the faulty Roe v. Wade decision from 1973 needed to be rejected.

That ruling had created a “right” to abortion in the U.S. Constitution, which the Dobbs decision found did not exist. The ruling affected abortion in American only insofar that is allows states to regulate the lucrative industry, not the federal government.

Since then, some states have moved to restrict abortions. Others, like Colorado, are trying to turn themselves into a destination for those who want to kill their unborn.

Democrats there did that by simply declaring that the unborn in Colorado have no rights. Ever.

Explained Sotomayor, “Justices have to proceed with a great deal of caution because people rely on the stability of the law in believing and having faith that the judicial system is not prone to politics.”

She opposed the majority in the Dobbs ruling.

The Examiner reported, “Other members of the high court’s liberal bloc including Justice Elena Kagan have made subtle suggestions that the Supreme Court has brought its legitimacy into question by way of the recent landmark opinions determined by the 6-3 Republican-appointed majority on the bench.”

It was a few weeks ago she said, that “judges create legitimacy problems for themselves when they don’t act like courts” and “when they instead stray into places that look like politics.”

Whatever “politics” may be involved may, however, lean more the other direction for Sotomayor, since she openly advocated the demolition of the precedent of marriage between a man and a woman just a few years ago.

That precedent, however, was not the 49 years old like abortion. Marriage between a man and a woman has been the precedent for civilization for millennia.

In fact, during the arguments over marriage, in which the narrow liberal majority on the court at the time created a “right” to same-sex marriage, much like it created the abortion right years ago, Sotomayor said destroying the institution would not take any rights from anyone.

Many people, gay or straight, still would choose not to get married, she argued at the time.

Further, she also exhibited her agenda-driven ideology when she made the extraordinary claim that, “The right to be married is embedded in our Constitution.”

She said states cannot be allowed to prevent people from having a “fundamental” right.

The word “marriage,” however, is nowhere in the Constitution.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?

Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”

Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
