Federal Court Keeps MCRI on the Ballot

Those who would oppose democracy in the racial/gender preferences have lost another round in court.

The irony is that AA is a creature of the Courts, and now the courts are letting it die.
The sooner, the better.

Conyers & Rangel Launch Personal Attack to Avoid Democracy

Congressman John Conyers (D-Michigan) and Rep. Charles Rangel (D- New York) have urged the IRS to launch an investigation into the salaries paid to Michigan Civil Rights Initiative sponsor Ward Connerly. It's clear, in my opinion, that these men know the MCRI will pass in a landslide. The majority of people have had enough of the shenanigans that are encompassed under the banners of "diversity" and "affirmative action."

Conyers and Rangel have been absolutely shameless on this issue. They are just now showing the lengths they will pursue in order to protect the power base of the racial and gender entitlements, which they and their colleagues have forced upon society.

Alito Delayed is Justice Denied...

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter has decided to delay Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito's confirmation hearing until January. I suspect pro-choice Specter is running interference for left wing activists to mount an all-out offensive on Alito. But the ongoing Roe v. Wade controversy isn't my issue...

I'm more concerned that the abortion-issue nuts on both sides may actually provoke a confirmation fight resulting in Alito's name being withdrawn by President Bush. This would be a huge setback for anti-preference activists who have long awaited the day that Sandra Day O'Con-job would pack her bags and leave the Court.

Alito has a keen intellect and will bring common sense to 14th Amendment and Equal Protection Clause cases. It's time the Equal Protection Clause is enforced as written, with no preferences for, or discrimination against, any group of people. We should tolerate no unreasonable delay in his confirmation process.

The Legacy of Harriet Miers...

On Thursday, the Bush Administration finally came to its senses and withdrew Harriet Miers' name for consideration as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. At long last, anti-preference conservatives rose up and opposed an obvious political crony who would continue to appease the left on the affirmative action issue.

She was apparently acceptable to Senators Harry Reid and Ted Kennedy -- they must have had inside information that Miers was politically correct on "civil rights" (which, today, is a euphemism for racial and gender preferences).

The Miers' nomination embodies everything that is wrong with the hiring process. The Bush Administration relies heavily on NCAA to make appointments to critical posts. No, not the National Collegiate Athletic Associate, but Nepotism, Cronyism and Affirmative Action. This is painfully obvious in the Miers debacle, as well as the Michael Brown FEMA disaster.

The systemic plague of hiring not on qualifications, but on the basis of NCAA, is an absolute disgrace. It is a major factor in the debasing of our institiutions and major corporations. More people need to speak out when these hiring shenanigans occur, and not just at the national level. When an incident of NCAA occurs in your local companies and organizations, speak out and embarass the fools who are trying to pull the wool over our eyes. They're less likely to attempt this nonsense if they are made aware that they are being watched.

A Response to Sen. Kennedy Regarding His Disgraceful Performance at the Roberts Hearings

Sen. Kennedy:

"Race has no place in American life or law." -- President John F. Kennedy

Your browbeating of Judge Roberts over the issue of racial and gender preferences in college admissions and employment was an absolute disgrace. As an admirer of President Kennedy, I can't imagine that he would be in favor of this nonsense.

Senator, as you well know, the battle over civil rights in the 1960s was about getting the government to abandon Jim Crow and finally apply the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause. It wasn't about creating a 'Special Protection Clause' out of thin air.

Have some empathy for those 'European' Americans born into the working class who get a college education in an attempt to better themselves, only to have opportunity snatched from them through racial and gender preferences -- they have no connections and "white privilege" as you have had.

When you speak to the issues of equality, please speak for yourself. The American public is fed up with the entire 'group rights' scam that has been forced upon them for the past 35+ years. You were a "legacy admission" at Harvard and a "legacy hire" in the U.S. Senate. What do you know about being selected for a position based on your qualifications?

The End Result of this Idiocy...

This is the end result of the "diversity" movement -- no discussion about the quality of the work product or the effectiveness of the Manhattan D.A.'s Office. Let's just focus on how many "people of color" there are in the office. That's the only way to evaluate a "21st-century district attorney."

Welcome to George Orwell's
Animal Farm:

Focus of District Attorney Race Is Diversity

Escalating her attack on the man she wants to replace as Manhattan district attorney, Leslie Crocker Snyder unveiled two ads yesterday in which two former prosecutors say that the district attorney, Robert M. Morgenthau, has not promoted black and Hispanic lawyers.

The two similar 30-second ads, on Time Warner Cable stations, contend that of 117 senior lawyers, only nine are black or Hispanic, and that there has been bias in the district attorney's office for many years.

Ms. Snyder, a longtime judge and former prosecutor now in private practice, is challenging Mr. Morgenthau in the Democratic primary on Sept. 13. Until now, much of her criticism of him has been focused on his 30-year tenure in office.

"Diversity is key to the success of our city and to the success of law enforcement and the criminal justice system," Ms. Snyder's spokesman, Eric Pugatch, said in a statement late yesterday. "Unfortunately, the lack of diversity in the highest levels of Mr. Morgenthau's office, and his refusal to address this failure after years of criticism, is just another example of how out of touch he is with the borough, our times and what it means to be a 21st-century district attorney."

Mr. Morgenthau's campaign immediately responded, saying that Ms. Snyder's figures were wrong and that she is "a complete hypocrite," in the words of George Arzt, a campaign spokesman, who added, "Only 2 out of 44 partners in her law firm are minority attorneys." Ms. Snyder is a partner at Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman.
