With the news today of the retirement of Justice Stevens from the U.S. Supreme court, President Obama will get to nominate another lefty judge. Now Stevens himself is a lefty so it won’t change the balance of the court. Justice Ginsberg also is expected to retire this year giving Obama a third person on the nation’s high court. That will allow him to put his radical Socialist stamp on the court for many, many years to come. Scary stuff.
So, who is on Obama’s short list of radical extremist judges? The worst possible pick would be radical leftist Harold Koh. He and some others make the short list of possible candidates:
Marsha Berzon, lefty from the wacko 9th Circuit
Richard Paez, another lefty from the wacko 9th Circuit
Anna Diggs Taylor, helped team Obama by saying Bush broke the law
Alex Kozinski, Chief lefty of the wacko 9th Circuit
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton…gets her out of the way for a possible challenge in 2012
Attorney General Eric Holder
Homeland Security Chieftess Janet Napolitano (please no)
Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm
Solicitor General Elena Kegan
Diane Wood, Chicago-style Obama pal on the Appeals Court
What has Obama himself said?
“SEN. OBAMA: I would not appoint somebody who doesn’t believe in the right to privacy. But you’re right, Wolf, I taught constitutional law for 10 years, and I — when you look at what makes a great Supreme Court justice, it’s not just the particular issue and how they rule, but it’s their conception of the court. And part of the role of the court is that it is going to protect people who may be vulnerable in the political process, the outsider, the minority, those who are vulnerable, those who don’t have a lot of clout. (Applause.) And part of what I want to find in a Supreme Court justice — and Joe’s exactly right, sometimes we’re only looking at academics or people who’ve been in the court. If we can find people who have life experience and they understand what it means to be on the outside, what it means to have the system not work for them, that’s the kind of person I want on the Supreme Court. (Applause.)”
So basically he wants a minority who has been trampled on. He’s more interested in that then he is in finding a qualified candidate. You can bet your life he will have a pro-abortion litmus test as well.
Fox News has a list of possible names from last time too. One on their list is wacko, lefty nut-job Harold Koh. Koh is featured on our Official Obama Administration Scandals List. Koh would be the most outrageous pick of all…so he probably has a good shot!
Koh was number 5 on the Top Ten Obama Appointment Scandals List:
“Harold Sharia Law Koh! – The New York Post reports Obama’s nominee to be the State Department’s top legal advisor, Harold Koh believes, “JUDGES should interpret the Constitution according to other nations’ legal “norms.” He also believes Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts! Koh has also stated the United States constitutes an “axis of disobedience” along with North Korea and Saddam-era Iraq. Those are the views of the man on track to become one of the US government’s top lawyers. Harold Koh was actually the Dean of Yale Law School. UPDATE 6/29/9 Oliver North reports: “the U.S. Senate confirmed the appointment of Harold Koh…The 62 to 35 vote means that Mr. Koh is now in a position to negotiate treaties, affect international law, and influence U.S. foreign policy. That’s not good news. Mr. Koh is a self-described “transnationalist” who “believes in and promotes the blending of international and domestic law.” According to Mr. Koh, “U.S. courts can and should use their interpretive powers to promote the development of a global legal system.” In short, he is a proponent of ensuring that citizens of the United States are in “bedience with international law.” Unfortunately the legal adviser’s appointment is just the tip of the iceberg in the Obama administration.” UPDATE 9/18/9: Koh is highlighted on the Sean Hannity TV Special, “The President’s top Ten!” Previously, he was also named to our “Obama’s Most Unwanted List!”
Earlier reports indicated possible Obama picks might include Leah Ward Sears, Deval Patrick and Looney Tunes nut-job Cass Sunstein.
Cass Sunstein on Supreme Court?!
Sunstein was number one on the “Obama’s Top Ten Appointment Scandals List!” Read more about him here.
