WASHINGTON — Supporters of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor are quietly targeting the Connecticut firefighter who's at the center of Sotomayor's most controversial ruling. On the eve of Sotomayor's Senate confirmation hearing, her advocates have been urging journalists to scrutinize what one called the "troubled and litigious work history" of firefighter Frank Ricci. This is opposition research: a constant shadow on Capitol Hill. [Will this kind of action ever be a thing of the past for Democrats?]

Following the previous posting of information concerning the fire fighter, Jombie rightly posted: The personal history of the plaintiff in this case is absolutely irrelevant to the propriety of Sotomayor's decision. Her backers cannot win on the relevant aspects of her behavior, so now they have to attack the victim. [And he is so right!]


Al Gore has touted the Cap and Trade climate bill, claiming it “will dramatically increase the prospects for success” in combating what he sees as the “crisis” of man-made global warming

“But it is the awareness itself that will drive the change and one of the ways it will drive the change is through global governance and global agreements!"
Meanwhile, his global warming has now become climate change, in order to have power over us no matter what the weather does. And hasn't climate ALWAYS been changing? New
Zealand has recorded the coldest May on record, while Massachusetts talks about it's "year without a summer". Global warming, indeed. THIS is why we need global governance on global warming solutions???

And HERE is what our liberal brain-washing of school children and adults alike can produce: Prince Charles has declared that "Capitalism and consumerism have brought the world to the brink of economic and environmental collapse". He added, in a speech to industrialists and environmentalists at St James's Palace, that he had calculated that we have just 96 months left to save the world. Oh, please, that's been said and tried before, both for warming and cooling of our well as for the death of our oceans.

From Molly Hooper of The Hill: Eric Holder let stand one of the four original charges [against the Black Panthers for voter intimidation] though. The leader of the black nationalist group’s Philadelphia chapter, Minister King Samir Shabazz, is charged with brandishing a “deadly weapon,” a nightstick, outside of the polls.

As a result, he was punished with not being able to brandish a weapon within 100 ft. of a polling station in Philadelphia until after the 2012 elections. [Does this mean that it will be ok for the Black Panthers to intimidate us after that date? Is this a joke?] “The American people need to know that the Justice Department takes seriously cases of voter intimidation, regardless of the political party of the defendants,” Smith said. Shabazz and Jackson were captured on widely circulated video of the incident standing 10-15 feet from the polling station. The two men are seen standing shoulder to shoulder, dressed in black military-style uniforms, black berets and combat boots; Shabazz tapped and pointed the nightstick in his hands at individuals. According to an affidavit filed by veteran voting rights activist Bartle Bull, who monitored elections in Mississippi at the height of the civil rights movement, the New Black Panther¹s directed racist comments towards white poll workers such as “you are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.” [Though this charge has been labeled "bull" by Rep. Brady of PA, it should make us wonder how he could have been at all polling places at all moments to be able to claim it as bull.]
