Justice Sonia Sotomayor Claims She’s ‘Traumatized’ by Rulings From Conservative Wing of the Court

by Erica Carlin

Sonia Sotomayor, a Supreme Court justice nominated by Obama and known for her liberal views, recently expressed frustration with the conservative wing of the court.

She claimed that their rulings consistently move the country to the ideological right and personally traumatize her.

However, it begs the question: Do Justices Clarence Thomas and Kavanaugh feel similarly traumatized when they are accused by Democrats and the media?

Thomas has been accused of being a corrupt criminal, while Kavanaugh faced accusations of being a rapist.

It’s worth considering whether Sotomayor hears herself in light of these situations.

According to The Hill, during an appearance at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, Sotomayor admitted to feeling daily frustration due to conservative rulings.

She described every loss as traumatic but emphasized that she still gets up the next morning.

The audience responded with applause.

During her speech, she criticized her “originalist colleagues” for coming up with new interpretations of the Constitution that challenge established rulings.

With a 6-3 conservative court, significant aspects of everyday life have been affected, including overturning federal abortion rights and ruling affirmative action in colleges unconstitutional.

If she wants to make policy, she’s in the wrong profession.

If she aspires to be a politician, it would be advisable for her to step down from her position as a judge and pursue an elected office. The responsibilities and expectations of being a politician are distinct from those of a judge.

 “originalist colleagues” 
As opposed to “living breathing document” types, like Sotomayor, who want to stretch the Constitution to its’ breaking point. It is NOT the job of the courts to “interpret” the Constitution but to uphold it, as in the original meaning. Maybe she needs to retire from the Court and find a nice safe space.

The answer is simple —–RESIGN and the SCOTUS will become a little more balanced for the citizens.

The expectation of a politician versus a Judge are also much lower, Maybe someone should let Hillary hear she has some of her emails from home and bills epstein travel logs and maybe to put her out of her misery she might commit clintoncide

“Ideological Right”,

Anyone so ignorant as to not know that was the “PRINCIPLES” on which this country was established,

Shouldn’t be in position of Leadership.

This Nation was created by “CHRISTIANS”.

Take your worthless ass and quite the job you can’t handle then go find your safe space and stay there until you die. No one gives a crap about your leftist mental problems you all have and expect special attention from the entire country. Get this through your stupid F-IN head NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOU!

You can’t tolerate adversity or receive your desired outcome, resign. Boo hoo – grow up. This is a sign of immaturity. You don’t qualify for the job.

I wish it was just a sign of immaturity. She is a fully mature intolerant leftist with an agenda, who will not tolerate anything but their desired outcome.

So what keeps her there occupying a seat that another conservative could be seated in? Does she ever publicly admit that she REQUIRED the purchase of her books in the hundreds before she would appear to “lecture” at any institution that invited her?

This nitwit can’t take the frustration of a conservative court, and the other nitwit doesn’t know what a woman is. And then you have Elena Kagan who is on the same intelligence level as the previous two. This is what the liberal Democrats have given to the American people on the SCOTUS. How about conservatives frustration for 50 years as you Nazi’s freely and happily killed innocent babies and turning it into a “choice’ issue? But when it came to vaccinations of your phony scamdemic, you took away our choice and mandated that we all get the clot shot.

Sotomayor ís traumatized at the Court return to judicial function in lieu of its many years of aggressive activist function.

I just read a piece about how Justice Amy Coney Barrett was encouraged by her counterparts on the court, and described the court’s decision making processes as very civil and tolerant of each Justice’s personal opinions. I am not amazed one bit that Justice Sotomayor is vocally intolerant while advocating to students at a leftist school. Citizens of the United States will one day understand that the leftists are growing impatient in their quest to achieve their agenda so they are becoming more vocal about their true wishes. Censorship is okay, Ministry of Truth is ok, 2-tier justice system is ok, re-writing history and the Constitution is ok, pulling down monuments is ok, forcing women to have men in their restrooms and locker rooms is ok, equal outcomes and DEI, as opposed to equal opportunity are ok, defunding local police to institute a national security force is ok.. .

Suggest you learn the meaning of “begging the question”.

The Constitution itself is self explanatory. Precedent is simply a history of rulings, which are themselves majority votes.The justices job is to give opinions as to whether the question before them is in accord with the Constitution. Their answers are opinions only and subject to review. Roe/Wade is one recent example. Leftists believe the Constitution Is just a suggestion and not the final answer. The founders believed otherwise.
