Just maybe, our Republican leadership will have to set aside their excellent statesmanship, their fine patrician leanings and just grow a set and decide to stop this woman from sitting on the highest court in the land. Surely, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) will come before the court and we should not be comfortable with Kagan taking part in that conversation. Nor should we be comfortable with her on free speech issues, gun issues, military issues, yada, yada, yada.
She does not deserve to be on the Supreme Court … but Obama does not deserve to be the president!

Obama picked an anti-military loon to sit on the Supreme Court today. Elena Kagan expelled military recruiters from the Harvard campus in defiance of The Solomon Act. Her case was rejected by even the most liberal justices of the Supreme Court. Of course, the fact that Obama would nominate some radical with such poor judgement to the Supreme Court surprises no one.
Kagan told fellow protesters at the rally:
“I’m very opposed to two government policies that directly violate our policy of nondiscrimination and directly impact our students,” stated Dean Kagan at the rally. “The first is ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell.’…. The second is the Solomon Amendment which effectively forces educational institutions to make exceptions to their nondiscrimination policy when it comes to the military and military recruitment.”
The pro-military organization Move America Forward is not pleased:
“Kagan was the last person from Obama’s short list that military personnel and their families want to see appointed to the Supreme Court. Not only has Kagan never even been a judge, she has a record of being radically anti-military, most notably in her opposition to the Soloman Act.”
When Kagan was Dean of Law at Harvard University, she expelled military recruiters from campus in defiance of The Solomon Act, which she has argued against in writing and speeches. She, along with 40 other law professors, argued to the Supreme Court against the Soloman Act, but her arguments were rejected by even the most liberal justices.
“President Obama should be appointing to the Supreme Court only those who truly appreciate the heroism and contribution to our freedom we get from the United States military. Kagan fails that test, and we hope she will be summarily rejected in confirmation by the United States Senate.” concluded Gonzalez.
Elena Kagan’s most notable foray into public life was kicking military recruiters off of Harvard’s campus. This must have impressed Barack Obama so much that he is putting her on the Supreme Court.
God Bless America.
