Dear God, Do Not Allow Obama Another Supreme Court Appointment

If Obama gets another appointment opportunity – the America we know and love will be shot!

Jeff Sessions: America Will Not Forgive this Senate for Confirming Kagan

Senator Jeff Sessions

Minutes before the vote to confirm Elena Kagan, Senator Jeff Sessions said “The American people will not easily forgive this Senate if we confirm Ms. Kagan to the Supreme Court.” Think about waking up on November 3rd, 2010 without the significant change needed to keep another Elena Kagan off the Supreme Court.

Those voting for Kagan wonder what all the fuss is about, and try to ignore the fact that 37 members of the Senate voted against her. Only three additional votes were needed to filibuster, yet five Republicans voted yea for a nominee: who has never been a judge; they knew manipulated abortion facts, and turned them into lies which overturned an abortion ban in Nebraska; who at Harvard refused Military recruiters on the grounds, and welcomed Islamic Shariah financing, which funds terrorism, into the law school along with three Saudi-funded studies of Shariah.

Republican Senators voting for Kagan were Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe (Maine), Lindsey Graham (NC), Dick Lugar (IN), and unbelievably Judd Gregg of New Hampshire. Senator Ben Nelson (NE) is the lone Democrat voting against Elena Kagan.

By modern standards, Justice Kagan’s 63 confirmation votes isn’t exactly an overwhelming display of support. Of the Supreme Court’s nine current justices, 63 ranks fairly low —

Stevens (98),

Kennedy (97),

Scalia (98),

Ginsburg (96),

Breyer (87),

Roberts (78),

Sotomayor (68)

Thomas (52)

Alito (58)

Today we talk about fighting for the America that we know and have known. If Obama is allowed to make another appointment, that America is gone.

Justice Anthony Kennedy says he will put-off his retirement until after the 2012 presidential election. Hallelujah for that, but we still cannot assure through this court appointed for a lifetime that the Constitution will guide the way our government works.

We must understand that the Supreme Court is the most important issue we face today. Senator Sessions’ prediction that this appointment will not be forgiven is insightful.

Beware Of Eleana Kagan, Republicans

Obama Supreme Court Nominee And Islamic Law

Several years ago, I was meeting with a British expert on radical Islam who was bemoaning the fact that the British government had approved the establishment of a national board that would rule on compliance with Islamic Finance. He was upset by the acceptance of the British government of a finance system that would be recognized as being outside of the British financial system. While he felt this was a policy mistake he was more concerned that it supported the concept that Muslims in the United Kingdom would live under their own rules, separate and apart from society at large.

Britain’s capitulation to the lobbying of their Muslim population has gone far beyond the financial sector. In all walks of life British Muslims act like they are a protected class that can live outside the norms of British society. While this concept of allowing a class of people to live outside of mainstream society is troubling by itself, the leadership of the British Muslim community are advocates of the most regressive form of Islamic law, Sharia. A basic tenet of Sharia is that Muslims can not recognize nor should they obey a state that is not ruled by Sharia law.

Last week, Senator Jeff Sessions exposed the troubling relationship between Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and Sharia Law. As Frank Gaffney reports, Senator Sessions is questioning Kagan’s silence when as Dean of Harvard Law School she did not oppose a Saudi gift of $20 million to establish an Islamic Studies center. Kagan, who ventured beyond the Law School to criticize policies of the United States military, remained silent when the regressive Saudis established a Center on campus that would be under the influence of the Sharia culture promulgated by the Saudi royal family.

And to add insult to injury, Kagan helped launch an Islamic Finance Project that advocates the United States following the British model of accepting Islamic laws of finance. In other words, Kagan believes that the laws that govern American society should not apply to Muslims. This should be of great concern to everyone who understands how this downgrades our Constitution, our legal system, and our way of life.

In Britain they followed the Kagan road and they are suffering because of this capitulation to an alien and aggressive legal force. We must not let that happen here.

Senator Sessions Calls Kagan A Liar!

Jeff Sessions Uses Camera Time To Call Elena Kagan A Liar

Evan McMorris-Santoro | June 29, 2010,

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) spent the second morning of Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court nomination hearing showcasing all the ways a person can call someone else a liar without actually saying the word. It was a tour de force in Washington-speak, but it also showed Sessions’ — the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee — Wilsonian plan of attack when it comes to Kagan: she lies.

Sessions’ claims center around Kagan’s time as Dean of Harvard law school and the access military recruiters had on campus during part of her time there. Republicans allege that Kagan denied those recruiters any access to the law school campus or her students. Kagan has said — and said again today — that she was balancing Harvard’s strict anti-discrimination policy and the law regarding recruiting access as it was understood at the time.

Session’s response, essentially? You’re a liar.

“I guess what I’m saying is the overall picture that she portrayed of the situation seems to me to be disconnected to the reality of it,” Sessions told reporters during a break in the hearings this morning. “I believe a Supreme Court justice has got to show clarity of mind, the ability to rigorously analyze complex situations and state them clearly and accurately with intellectual honesty.”

“I feel like that she was not rigorously accurate in describing the whole nature of this circumstance,” added. “And so I’m disappointed in it.”

So, a reporter asked Sessions, does that mean Kagan’s lying?

“I’d just leave it as what I said,” Sessions said.

Shortly thereafter, Sessions was on CNN again all but calling Kagan a liar. “I begin to worry — it worried me whether she had the intellectual honesty, the clarity of mind that you would expect on the Supreme Court of the United States,” Sessions told the network.

This time, Sessions was asked if he “trusts” Kagan. “Maybe her gifts are accommodation or political,” Sessions said. “She’s bright, there’s no doubt about that. I don’t think she’s a person that’s dishonest fundamentally, but I just think that you expect a lot out of a person who sits at the highest court in our land.”

So maybe she’s not a liar, Sessions says, but she’s certainly not honest enough for the Supreme Court.

Stop Eleana Kagan! NOW!!

Many Americans who voted for Barack Obama did not expect the kind of change he is bringing to America.  They have buyer’s remorse now.  We must remember …

There are consequences to elections – Like This!

and if course, This

Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (Solicitor General Kagan lost!)

hat tip: YID With LID

Citizens United v Federal Election Commission, was a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court holding that corporate funding of independent political broadcasts in candidate elections cannot be limited under the First Amendment. The 5–4 decision resulted from a dispute over whether the non-profit corporation Citizens United could air via video on demand a critical film about Hillary Clinton, and whether the group could advertise the film in broadcast ads featuring Clinton’s image, in apparent violation of the McCain–Feingold Act. It was a major victory for the free speech rights guaranteed by the first Amendment.

Arguing for the Law to remain as is was Solicitor General, and now nominee to the Supreme Court Elena Kagen. In the video below, we hear Kagen being questioned by the court, asking if the bill could lead to banning other media, like Books, here answer was that yes but that’s OK but we would never really enforce it.  Justice Scalia puts her in her place, basically saying, never believe a lawyer who says “trust me.”


Call the following Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and demand that they vote NO AND FILIBUSTER Eleana Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court.  She is not fit to serve.

Jeff Sessions
Ranking Member, R-Alabama  (202)224-4124

Orrin G. Hatch
R-Utah (202)224-5251

Get Ready For Eleana Kagan On Monday – Senator McConnell, The Word Is Filibuster

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.

UGH!!

She does not deserve to be on the Supreme Court … but Obama does not deserve to be the president!

Gateway Pundit

said this about her –

Posted by Jim Hoft on Monday, May 10, 2010, 6:06 AM

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.

Leftwing activist Kagan protests the military.

This photo shows Dean Elena Kagan protesting against the military at a LAMBDA-sponsored rally at Harvard in 2004. (HL Record)

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.
