New Alito Opposition Efforts Launched

With Samuel Alito’s confirmation hearings scheduled to begin next week, groups opposed to President Bush’s nominee to replace Sandra Day O’Connor on the Supreme Court are stepping up their efforts to inform the public about Alito’s record.

IndependentCourt.org, a coalition of public interest organizations, launched a new 30-second television spot Wednesday focusing on the fact that as a federal judge, Alito has more than once broken promises he made to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his first confirmation process, giving several different excuses for his conduct once the broken pledge was revealed.

When nominated to a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, Alito said that he would not rule in cases involving two companies that handled his investments or in cases involving his sister’s law firm. The ad points out, however, that court records show Alito’s participation in such cases, despite his pledge to recuse himself.

The ad, which will run initially on cable news programs nationally and in Maine and Arkansas, asks: "Shouldn’t we be able to trust Supreme Court nominees to keep their word?

In addition to the television ad buy, IndependentCourt.org will also begin running radio advertisements in Arkansas and Louisiana highlighting Alito’s troubling record on civil rights. The radio ads will be unveiled at a press conference in Arkansas Wednesday.

"We need the Supreme Court to reject employment discrimination, to stand up against government and big business intrusions on our rights and privacy, to uphold the democratic principle of one person - one vote," said Wade Henderson, executive director of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights. "Americans need to understand why so many people are asking whether Alito can be counted on to stand up for us."

IndependentCourt.org also announced Wednesday that it will kick-off two weeks of nationwide grassroots activity by delivering approximately one million anti-Alito petitions to Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Arlen Specter’s Philadelphia office on Thursday, January 5. Pennsylvanians for a Fair and Independent Court will be joined at the Philadelphia event by Julian Bond, NAACP chairman of the board and Karen Pearl, interim president, Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Coalition affiliate networks in Arkansas, Connecticut, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, and Wisconsin will be hosting their own petition delivery events to urge their senators to oppose Samuel Alito’s nomination.

I’m upset that most of the major media discussion about the opposition to Alito centers on his lack of support for abortion rights. I believe that is a red herring. I am much more concerned with his support for the imperial presidency and lack of support for civil rights. I believe he has been an extreemly activist judge in trying to subvert the efforts of our founding fathers (who wanted no more king Georges) to reign in the power of the executive.

Why would you be surprised? The media is a virtual extension of the WH and so is "Scalito" oops, sorry Alito. He a liar also. He says he doesn’t recall being a member of that Princton club (the one that opposes co-education and quotas) when he boasted about on on a job application. Scalito is a liar just like the man that nominated him.

Scalito will be confirmed because the Democrats don’t have any balls and are really part of the One Party system here in the US. They’re in favor of packing the Court with big corporate supporters for the next 30 years just like the GOP.

This country needs a second party. Failing that, a revolution.

yea, it’s a one party system. And by the way we who believe in the consperacy agenda are the last people you want to fuck with because we are armed to the teeth and we will be prepared for the globalist agenda when they try to install martial law.

Face it lefties, you are out of power because your ignorance, hypocricy, passionate violence, humourless self righteousness, and incompetence scares the hell out of people. You are very much aware of your own shortcomings and your inability to compete in the intellectual marketplace. Your dishonesty and cowardice is proven beyond doubt by this website’s willingness to censor and edit out dissenting opinions, and in effect, turn it into a political petri dish, a left wing echo box. This post won’t be here long, but remember, when they delete it, in so doing, you are simply admitting your intellectual and political bankruptcy.

wrong again Einstein. Bush is a dirtbag from a family of dirtbags. This makes him essentially indistinguishable from John Kerry, Teddy Kennedy, Jay Rockefeller, [all "Democrats"] who are all likewise dirtbags from dirtbag families.........One of the many and manifest problems with liberals is that, in their simplicity, they have reduced the workings of politics and history to a sport, and their behaviour is the political equivalent of "football hooiganism": As long as their "team" is winning, they don’t care what crimes are committed, whereas, if they perceive that the "other team" is doing something extra-legal, they go berserk. The poor libs are just not clever enough to figure out thet the global left and global right are the same people.......they stay in the same 5 star hotels, eat at the same restaurants, play golf [in the same foursomes] at the same golf courses. It is what the cops would call a "mutt and Jeff, or, good cop-bad cop routine. Put down the bong, turn off your reflexive and oh so tiresome self righteousness and spend some time in real research. You will discover that the world is in much worse shape than even you think....."cheers"

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
