What to Expect From Obama’s Supreme Court Pick

What should we expect from Obama’s Supreme Court nominee?

Michelle Malkin has written about some of Obama’s potential choices here and here.

Expect Barack Obama to pick a “fellow traveller” who shares his Communist (*) journey to bring an Empire to its knees:

But my journey is part of a larger journey – one shared by all who’ve ever sought to apply the values of their faith to our society. It’s a journey that takes us back to our nation’s founding, when none other than a UCC church inspired the Boston Tea Party and helped bring an Empire to its knees.

(*) I’ve written before about how the American Revolution was never about bringing the British Empire to its knees.  But self-admitted communists like William (Bill) Ayers and the Communist Party USA view capitalism and the U.S. as “imperialism” and seek the end of this “Empire”… 

Communist Party USA:

With Marxism-Leninism guiding our actions, the Communist Party strives to build the broadest unity against global capitalist imperialism now headed by U.S. imperialism, for immediate gains and reforms that benefit working people, and for a progressive democratization of the government, the economy, and society of our country on the road to and after winning socialism.

What comes after winning socialism?  Communism.  Lenin himself said so…

The goal of socialism is communism.

-Vladimir Lenin

Bill Ayers on September 10, 2008:

“The end of an empire is messy at best….

and this one is ending like all the rest.” Randy Newman


Ayers “dancing” on an American flag, saying, “Guilty as hell, free as a bird, it’s a great country.” Yet, he seems intent on bringing this great country to an end.

Obama has always had an affinity to Marxists.  So, expect a “fellow traveller” as his Supreme Court nominee.

5 Responses to What to Expect From Obama’s Supreme Court Pick

  1. On January 31, 2006, then-Senator Barack Obama explained why he would be voting against President Bush’s nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court:

    He said:

    Hello, this is Barack Obama, and today is Tuesday, January 31, 2006. As many of you may be aware, today is the vote to confirm Judge Alito the Unites States Supreme Court. There’s been a lot of discussion in the country about how the Senate should approach the confirmation process. There’s some who believe that the President, having won the election, should have complete authority to appoint the nominee, and that the Senate should only examine whether or not the Justice is intellectually capable and is nice to his wife, or she is nice to her husband. That, once you get beyond issues of intellect and personal character, then there shouldn’t be further question as to whether the Judge should be confirmed. I disagree with the view.

    I believe that the Constitution calls for the Senate to advise and consent, that, meaningful advice and consent includes an examination of a judge’s philosophy, ideology, and record. When I examine the philosophy, ideology, and record of Judge Samuel Alito, I am deeply troubled. I have no doubt that Judge Alito has the training and qualifications necessary to serve as a Supreme Court Justice. He’s a smart guy, there’s no indication that he is not a man of good character. But, when you look at his record, what is clear is that when it comes to his understanding of the Constitution, he consistently sides on behalf of the powerful against the powerless. If there is a case involving an employer and an employee, and the Supreme Court has not given clear direction, Judge Alito will rule in favor of the employer. If there is a claim between prosecutors and defendants, if the Supreme Court has not already a clear rule of decision then, Judge Alito will rule in favor of the state. When it comes to how checks and balances in our system are supposed to operate, the balance of power between the executive branch, Congress, and the judiciary, Judge Alito consistently sides with the notion that a president should not be constrained by either Congressional acts, or the check of the judiciary. He believes in the overarching power of the president to engage in whatever the president deems to be appropriate policy. As a consequence of this, I’m extraordinarily worried about how Judge Alito might approach issues such as wire tapping, monitoring of emails, or other privacy concerns that we have seen surface over the last several months.

    In sum, I’ve seen an extraordinarily consistent attitude on the part of Judge Alito that does not uphold the traditional role of the Supreme Court as a bastion of equality and justice for the United States citizen, and for that reason, I will be voting against his confirmation. I do hope that if Judge Alito is confirmed, he proves me wrong. I know that all the Senators who will be voting against him ardently hope that the Supreme Court continues to serve the vital role that it plays in preserving our liberties. Thank you very much; I will talk to you guys next week.

    Let’s see if Obama feels the same way now. Let’s see if now that having arguably won the election (“I won”), he has changed his mind and thinks he should have complete authority to appoint the nominee, and that the Senate should only examine whether or not the Justice is intellectually capable and is nice to his wife, or she is nice to her husband.

    Or, whether he believes further questions should be asked as to whether the Judge should be confirmed.

    Let’s see if he still believes that meaningful advice and consent includes an examination of a judge’s philosophy, ideology, and record.

  2. Keep in mind that not only did Obama vote against two exceptionally well qualified justices, Obama also voted in favor of judicial filibuster.

  3. Obama sees the Supreme Court as a tool to be used in Socialist/Communist Class Warfare:

    Obama said in opposing Roberts, “far more often used his formidable skills on behalf of the strong in opposition to the weak.”

    Later, Obama criticized Roberts claim that he acted as an “umpire.”

    “But the issues that come before the court are not sports; they’re life and death,” Obama argued. “We need somebody who’s got the empathy to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom.”

  4. Whether Samuel Alito will put the law on the side of upholding this ideal for every American should be at the center of our inquiry into his judicial philosophy, and I know that NWLC will be leading the way on this.

    It is not a Justice’s role to “put the law on the side of” one group over another group.

    Obama is looking for judicial activists who will legislate “Social Justice” (really “Socialist Injustice”) from the bench.
