court of appeals is where policy is made. Sonia Sotomayor

A “court of appeals is where policy is made. .. And I know — I know this is on tape, and I should never say that because we don’t make law. I know. O.K. I know. I’m not promoting it. I’m not advocating it. I’m — you know.”  Judge Sonia Sotomayor, 2005

Displaying her well-known eloquence, and lack of respect for the law, Judge Sonia Sotomayor in 2005 discussing making policy from the bench.  I would urge Sotomayor to read the Constitution of the United States, the Federalist papers and the Anti-Federalist papers.  This is one person who needs to educate herself on the founding of this country.

Sotomayer is the antithesis of a judge or Justice. Compare her power-hungry philosophy with John Adams seeking to establish “a government of laws and not of men.”  Or since she is so cognizant of gender and race, a “government of laws and not of hispanic women.”
