Sotomayor’s intellectual limitations
on display in the oral arguments over
Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health

Original Article

For anyone paying attention to the abortion rights case just argued before the Supreme Court, it would be hard to miss the deep emotional passion of Justice Sotomayor in defense of Roe v. Wade. The justices heard arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health over a Mississippi law that prohibits termination of pregnancies after 15 weeks. Lower courts have found the ban plainly unconstitutional due to the half century of legal precedent since Roe and put it on hold. While hardly alone in her knee-jerk attachment to the faux constitutionality of Roe, neither she nor the other liberals on the Court can address

Ah yes, the Wide Latina ... she is there because she checks several boxes: female, minority, etc. Intellectual robustness was not one of the boxes.

She is very limited as far as intelligence or common sense, but she has a deep well of smug hate for anyone who challenges her weird world. Just like every raging liberal I know.

FTA: "While hardly alone in her knee-jerk attachment to the faux constitutionality of Roe, neither she [Sotomayor] nor the other liberals on the Court can address any relevant text in the Constitution that supports that 1973 decision. That would be because there isn’t any. All that clever stuff about emanations and penumbras was wholly without constitutional basis." My Vanderbilt class in Constitutional Interpretation, one of the most demanding and time consuming courses one could take, studied the entire case of Roe v. Wade, with majority opinion (by Justice Harry Blackmun, a Nixon appointee) including all concurrences and dissents, in whole or in part. My professor, who was sympathetic to the decision's sense but not to its legal reasoning, practically tore his hair at the legal reasoning, which was nonexistent, pure penumbra. If a decision is based on no constitutional principles, it will always be ripe for overturning. The same thing happened in the landmark 1954 decision Brown v. Board of Education. Chief Justice Earl Warren wanted, and held out, for a unanimous decision. Eventually the other eight justices went along, and voted 9-0. But the decision was not fundamentally based on legal principles; it was based on sociology. Bad sociology. The Court should do better than that. IIRC, Justice Sotomayor identified herself by tautology, dubbing herself a "wise Latina woman." She could have dropped the "woman." All Latinas I know are female. Their brothers are Latinos.

I haven’t been following this case because I’m teaching at a seminar so I don’t know if it has been done, but I hope that the pro-life attorneys are showing those ultrasounds and face photos to the judges. Then let that buffoon tell the court that they are not human beings with inalienable rights. Our daughter has given us two grandchildren in the last 21 months and I was there for the 3-D ultrasounds. They are truly amazing. Both pregnancies were “unplanned” but our daughter, herself being adopted and not aborted, chose life. I cannot imagine the evil which would have them dismembered and thrown into a bag tagged as “medical waste”. Isn’t it interesting that the women who rage the most about the right to kill the unborn (Sotomayor and Kagan among other lesbians) are the very women who will never need to exercise that “right”?

When Sotomayor was nominated for the Supreme Court, I was willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. I thought I saw glimmers of intelligence in her, as well as a capacity for rational thinking. I was wrong.

The best reason to get rid of Roe vs Wade is that it is no longer relevant. I was a young teenage girl during the lead-up to RvW. In that world, a pregnant woman out-of-wedlock was ostracized, discriminated against for employment, both for being pregnant and being "no better than she should be". High-schoolers were immediately kicked out of school and pretty much disappeared, except in whispered gossip. There was next-to-no support system for them during pregnancy or as a single mother, and the child itself would bear its mother's sin. In other words, unwed pregnancy was a crime punished by confinement with child. Compare that world to today. Single motherhood is praised and single mothers are seen as heroes. There are extensive government programs, at all levels, to help both mother and child. There is no longer any stigma to being born out-of-wedlock. Also now, with Baby Moses laws, a woman can easily pass on the responsibility for a baby she cannot, or will not, care for. A woman is no longer sentenced to motherhood for 15-18 years. There is no longer any reason, socially, why a woman NEEDS to have an abortion, guaranteed by Federal law. And with advancements in birth control, no reason to be pregnant in the first place.

There are people like sleazy politicians and judges that I would avoid just because I wouldn't want them to infect or rub off on me this would be that kind of person. We are all born ignorant but to remain that way is by choice but Sotomayor is a liberal and a good one at that.

Another example of the divergence from a meritocracy. Putting mediocre folks into important positions because of their sex or skin color is a recipe for a steady slide into disaster. One of Britain's most fundamental, intractable problems as a society has been their relentless, destructive, hard core, totally blind class structure where the dimmest fool, as long as he "went to the right schools" and "was from a prominent family" could be in charge of an army or a huge business.....and run them into the ground by their dimbulb incompetence propped up by endless arrogance because "I went to Eaton" and "I'm the 12 Earl of Dogpatch". The Prince Charles group of royals are a prime example. Charles is clearly a well trained idiot, and his children don't seem much better. Elizabeth II seemed to be the last remaining repository of brains in the whole royal family. And that is all too common across Britain for a VERY long time. We are doing it based on sex and race, not class - but the end result is the same. Either have the most capable people in positions of influence and leadership, or fail as a society, as a people, as a country.

When I was in medical school, I had the privilege of working in a large inner-city hospital, located right between two rival gangs. There were no emergency room residents, so trauma was handled by the general surgery residents. As such, I had firsthand views of some significant trauma. Each “emergency room” was basically curtains separating a large open space into cubicles. One day, a report came over the radio, we would receive a wounded officer and a wounded gang member. The officer was unfortunately shot in the back and paralyzed, the gang member shot in the knee, but otherwise fine.

Sonia Sotomayor, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, raised eyebrows and cast doubt on her fitness for her elevated office during oral arguments over the pending Mississippi abortion case, Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health. Constitutional scholars were taken aback by her injection of politics: “Will this institution survive the stench that this creates in the public perception – that the Constitution and its reading are just political acts?” Sotomayor asked. “I don’t see how it is possible.” And her casual rejection of the Constitution as the arbiter of Supreme Court decision-making:

Over the past eight decades there have many frauds promoted by the mainstream media.

But the legacy of the mainstream media is that it has always been the cheerleaders and propaganda arm of the left and the Democrat Party.

The total failure of our establishment to earn our trust over the last two years of this pandemic made it inevitable that a huge number of people, at best, don’t care, and at worst think it’s a calculated lie designed to prolong this nonsense. The COVIDians are positively turgid over the idea of more mandates, more lockdowns, more masks, and more viro-fascism.

Yes, Joe Biden is far and away the worst president in the history of the United States. However, the four-year Trump interlude between Obama and Biden gave the U.S. at least a little resiliency to stand against Biden’s hard-left administration. Imagine how much worse things would have been if Hillary had immediately stepped into Obama’s shoes. America wouldn’t have stood a chance. And lest you forget just what a horrible human being Hillary was, she just gave us a reminder as she spoke with Today’s Willie Geist about her decision to read her “victory speech” aloud for a MasterClass.
