Sotomayor says she’s no bigot

In fact, AP writer Julie Davis describes it as,  “Sotomayor pushes back hard.” sotomayor gun control

Isn’t that special?

Sotomayor even told the Senators that she is no gun-grabbing extremist, adding that “one of her godchildren is a member of the National Rifle Association and she has friends who hunt.”

That should satisfy even the most hard-core, bitter-clingers. Not.

Actually, I wasn’t aware that the GOP had been pushing Sotomayor at all….  Jabbing a bit, maybe, but as always, refusing to throw a body punch.

Certainly nothing like Sen Biden’s slimy example of hackery during the Clarence Thomas hearings.

It’s simply unexplainable to me.  Even when an opportunity arises to land the mother-of-all haymakers, (Orrin Hatch  questions Ruth Ginsberg), the punches are pulled up short.  Why?

Sen Hatch laid out his outline in yesterday’s NRO. Given his reasoning, there should be no way that Sotomayor is allowed a pass on her “some of my best friends are hunters” non-response.

No way at all.

The Senate confirmation process has been politicized by the Left for decades.  Opposing the Sotomayor  nomination should require no more depth of thought than the fluffernuttery expressed by then-Senator Obama in opposing Justices Roberts and Alito.  Unfortunately, the GOP seems browbeaten by the prospects of being loudly called racists, seemingly intimidated by community organizer thug tactics.

To Senator Sessions and the GOP —  Play the game.  Their tactics only work against those who are afraid to stand on principle. 

Call their Alinsky, and raise them Sun Tzu.

You will see that opportunities multiply as they are seized.

The Obamafia gets “in their face”

Recently this website has witnessed Chicago machine-thuggery responding to obama’s exhortation to get in their face. Attempting not only to harass and intimidate, but also to deflect attention from the lack of any substantial record of the community-organizer CIC-wannabe, the Obamafia’s thuggery is truly disgusting.

But given the record of their candidate, it no wonder.

What little record exists is in direct opposition to the messiah-like claims of healing and cooperation.

Some facts about Obama’s record:

Source: 1998 IL State Legislative National Political Awareness Test Jul 2, 1998

Voted YES on continuing federal funds for declared “sanctuary cities”

Voted NO on declaring English as the official language of the US government.

Voted YES on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security.

Voted YES on giving Guest Workers a path to citizenship.

Provide funding for social services for non-citizens. Obama co-sponsored providing funding for social services for non-citizens.

Rated 8% by USBC, indicating an open-border stance. Obama scores 8% by USBC on immigration issues
(U.S. Border Control, founded in 1988, is a non-profit, tax-exempt, citizen’s lobby. USBC is dedicated to ending illegal immigration by securing our nation’s borders and reforming our immigration policies. USBC [works with] Congressmen to stop amnesty; seal our borders against terrorism and illegal immigration; and, preserve our nation’s language, culture and American way of life for future generations)

On Abortion: He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion — a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called “too close to infanticide.”

Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which prevents the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. And now Obama has oddly claimed he would not want his daughters to be “punished with a baby” because of a crisis pregnancy

In 1972, Alinsky warned the Black Panthers and SDS that their tactics would fail, and that if they continued they would end up dead. He said that the only way to bring their brand of radical change to America was to organize the middle class, and empower community groups with massive infusions of cash.

Fast-forward to 2008:  ACORN is flush with cash (along with numerous investigations and allegations of monumental fraud), and middle class thugs are trying to suppress the free speech rights of anyone who would oppose the dear leader.

Be warned. This battle is far from over. In fact, the political Right is only now waking up to the threat. In the next two weeks, the tide will turn decisively in favor of traditional American values.

Have faith.

So many dots, so little time

Update: Welcome readers from Free Republic!

Stanley Kurtz, Melanie Phillips, Debbie Schlussel, David Freddoso, Dick Morris, Sean Hannity, and even the National Enquirer have all made great efforts to connect the dots on the shady past of Barack Obama. Each in their own way have exposed the amazing lack of judgment and questionable associations of this man who would be President.

As each revelation is met with the another disingenous denial, we on the Right have resigned ourselves to the fact that a tingling in the leg trumps journalistic ethics, and the Fourth Estate has evolved to become effete cheerleaders. It occurred to me the other night, while listening to a discussion of Obama’s mentor, Alan Colmes asked the question, “So, what’s wrong with Saul Alinsky?”

Alinsky’s alliances with Black separatists, radical pastors in the Church of Christ, the Nation of Islam, all have a very familiar ring with Obama, Jeremah Wright, and Louis Farrakhan. In fact, it was Alinsky’s battle against Eastman Kodak that laid the framework for tactics employed in the rise of Obama’s ACORN.

After endless months of frustration, we finally decided we’d try to embarrass Kodak outside its fortress of Rochester, and disrupt the annual stockholders’ convention in Flemington, New Jersey. Though we didn’t know it at the time — all we had in mind was a little troublemaking — this was the seed from which a vitally important tactic was to spring. I addressed the General Assembly of the Unitarian-Universalist Association and asked them for their proxies on whatever Kodak stock they held in order to gain entree to the stockholders’ meeting. The Unitarians voted to use the proxies for their entire Kodak stock to support FIGHT — 5620 shares valued at over $700,000.

The wire services carried the story and news of the incident rapidly spread across the country. Individuals began sending in their proxies, and other church groups indicated they were prepared to follow the Unitarians’ lead. By the purest accident, we’d stumbled onto a tactical gold mine. Politicians who saw major church denominations assigning us their proxies could envision them assigning us their votes as well; the church groups have vast constituencies in their congregations. Suddenly senators and representatives who hadn’t returned our phone calls were ringing up and lending a sympathetic ear to my request for a senatorial investigation of Kodak’s hiring practices. … We wanted to use the proxies as a means of social and political pressure against the megacorporations, and as a vehicle for exposing their hypocrisy and deceit. …

Proxies can become a springboard to other issues in organizing the middle class. Proxy participation on a large scale could ultimately mean the democratization of corporate America, and could result in the changing of these corporations’ overseas operations, which would precipitate important shifts in our foreign policy. There’s really no limit to the proxy potential. Pat Moynihan told me in Washington when he was still Nixon’s advisor that “proxies for people would mean revolution — they’ll never let you get away with it.” It will mean revolution, peaceful revolution, and we will get away with it in the years to come. source

Indeed. They are getting away with it now. Buried in the massive Wall Street bailout package was funding for radical community groups like Obama’s ACORN. Tactics of ruthless intimidation backed by massive funding has provided these militant utopians with frightening access to the levers of power. Alinsky’s warning was equaly ominous…

Every major revolutionary movement in history has gone through the same process of corruption, proceeding from virginal purity to seduction to decadence. Look at the Christian church as it evolved from the days of the martyrs to a giant holding company, or the way the Russian Revolution degenerated into a morass of bureaucracy and oppression as the new class of state managers replaced the feudal landowners as the reigning power elite. Look at our American Revolution; there wasn’t anybody more dedicated to the right of revolution than Sam Adams, leader of the Sons of Liberty, the radical wing of the revolution. But once we won the fight, you couldn’t find a worse dictatorial reactionary than Adams; he insisted that every single leader of Shays’ Rebellion be executed as a warning to the masses. He had the right to revolt, but nobody had the right to revolt against him. Take Gandhi, even; within ten months of India’s independence, he acquiesced in the law making passive resistance a felony, and he abandoned his nonviolent principles to support the military occupation of Kashmir. Subsequently, we’ve seen the same thing happen in Goa and Pakistan. Over and over again, the firebrand revolutionary freedom fighter is the first to destroy the rights and even the lives of the next generation of rebels.

We’ve already seen several instances of supression of 1st Amendment rights from team Obama, including Federal Lawsuits filed against critics, to organized suppression at radio station WGN. Reinstituting the so-called “fairness doctrine” has been talked about. He has even proposed for some type of civilian national armed forces. Can brown shirts be far behind?

And to answer Colmes, just read the last interview of alinsky (playboy 1972) and decide for yourself. (pdf will take a moment to load)
