Obama's Continuing Attack on American Sovereignty

President Obama continues his attack on American Sovereignty with his nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court.

First came the nomination of Elena Kagan to be Solicitor General of the United Sate. Ms. Kagan opposed ROTC and military recruiter access to Harvard University students when she was Dean of Harvard Law School -- a position that put her to the left of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. After the unanimous Supreme Court decision upholding the right of access as legislated by the Solomon amendment, she still sought ways to stop military recruiter access.

Next came the appointment of Harold Koh as Legal Advisor to the U.S. Department of State. He is a proponent of "transnational law" -- just look at a the blog entries below this to see his views.

Now the nomination of the Judge Sotomayor is being rushed through the Senate. Besides her questionable decisions on equality before the law for working men and women, she seems to think that so-called international law and the laws of other countries should influence how U.S. judges interpret our Constitution.

In the foreword to the 2007 book The International Lawyer, Judge Sotomayor wrote, "the question of how much we have to learn from foreign law and the international community when interpreting our Constitution is ... worth posing" as Steven Groves of the Heritage Foundation has pointed out.
