Goodwin Liu Mangles the Constitution

Gov. Jerry Brown’s Tuesday appointment of Goodwin Liu to the California Supreme Court will continue the state’s lurch to the Left. Liu clearly believes in a highly activist judiciary for which the U.S. Constitution and the California Constitution are as malleable as Silly Putty.

Now for Something Really Stupid 0

John Seiler:

Except for those getting the cash, just about every analyst of the California High-Speed Rail Authority says it’s a boondoggle. Dan Walters summed it up:

It’s rare for any human endeavor to achieve perfection, but California’s High-Speed Rail Authority has done it – albeit in reverse.

Jerry Appoints Radical to Top Court 3

John Seiler:

Those working for the independence of South California will find more ammunition in Gov. Jerry Brown’s pick for the state Supreme Court, Goodwin Liu. The appointee is a radical left-wing professor at U.C. Berkeley (where else?).

Republicans themselves have a lot to answer for in their own appointees to the Supreme Court. Recently retired Chief Justice Ronald M. George, appointed by Republican Gov.… Read more

JULY 27, 2011

By WAYNE LUSVARDI

Norwegian mass-murderer Anders Behring Breivik poses  a challenge to the proposed ballot initiative to end the California death penalty, regardless of the cost of executions.

The initiative didn’t emerge on moral grounds from liberal religious or civil rights organizations, but on the basis that it is too costly.  The California State Assembly Committee on Public Safety approved such a ballot measure for the November 2012 election.… Read more
