Sotomayor: same song, second verse (updated)

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

Sonia Sotomayor, during a 2001 speech at the UC Berkeley School of Law, published in the Berkeley La Raza Law Journal.

Judge Sonia Sotomayor is listed as a member of the National Council of La Raza, but does that make her a racist?

24Ahead.com takes a detailed look at the La Raza (The Race).

Here is an excerpt:

Far-left racial power organization that’s considered mainstream but which funds extremists (also here) and supports illegal immigration as a way of obtaining political power. Funded by, among others, the Ford Foundation, the U.S. government (also see this, this, and this), and major corporations such as HomeDepot and General Motors. Has been pandered to by many top politicians, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Karl Rove (see this). Per the Washington Post, they and a few other groups had “virtual veto power” over the provisions of the 2007 comprehensive immigration reform (i.e., amnesty) bill.

Headed by Janet Murguia for several years, before then by Raul Yzaguirre. Former senior VP Cecilia Munoz is now part of the Obama administration. Former chairwoman is Monica Lozano (now on the Bank of America board, more here); current is Andrea Bazan (more here). …

In 1994, they gave their “Chicano Hero Award” to the person who’d made this statement years earlier:

“We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.”

In the last election, The Democrats successfully sold the idea that Obama’s previous associations with radicals and separatists like Jeremiah Wright, and unrepentant terrorists like William Ayers was nothing at all to be concerned about. “Guilt by association,” they said.  Prior to throwing him under the campaign bus, Obama himself even claimed to have never heard any of the more inflammatory words of his pastor.  This was the man who baptized his children, a man he once called his spiritual mentor.  And, the American public, hungry for change and tired of the steady diet of negativity in the news cycle, elected a man with no experience and a  history of dubious past associations.

The Sotomayor nomination appears to be more of the same song, just a different verse.

When a judge rules based upon personal values rather than the law, then the rule of law is replaced by the rule of judicial fiat.

I do hope Senator Sessions is loaded for bear.

Entergy rate hike request fails the smell test

Just a week after Entergy Mississippi requested a 10% hike in their “Fuel Adjustment” charge (on top of last summer’s hefty increase), TVA has announced their third straight quarterly “fuel adjustment” decrease.

TVA says the decrease will bring their prices down to the lowest level in over a year.

“With the reduction in July, we will roll back all of the fuel cost adjustment increase from last fall, which is good news for ratepayers,” TVA President and CEO Tom Kilgore said. “Fortunately for all of us, the price of coal and natural gas that are used as fuels in TVA power plants has declined in recent months. In addition, current economic conditions have resulted in lower power sales for TVA and that reduces our fuel and purchased power costs, as well.” source

Now, I’m sure that their is a simple explanation for the apparent discrepancy, and I would be very interested to hear Entergy’s take on all of this. But, at first blush, Entergy’s rate hike request just doesn’t pass the smell test.
