Elena Kagan by the Letters
Obama has nominated Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court and is now in the confirmation process. There is little known about many of the issues that could come before her on the court and how she would vote, but what is out there is disturbing. She is not a moderate like the press and Democrats are saying. She is far left of moderate. Many are saying she is a shoe in for confirmation. We can not have another justice that legislates from the bench and spits on the Constitution and that is what she will do.
A- Abortion) Kagan appears pro-abortion. Her statement after Reagan won the presidency hints at a problem, “Even after the returns came in, I found it hard to conceive of the victories of these anonymous but Moral Majority-backed opponents, these avengers of human life and B-1 bomber.” Kagan shows there an antipathy towards religion and those who abhor abortion.
D- Deceit)On June 22, 1998, Kagan was a deputy domestic policy adviser, she and Reed crafted a memo proposing a variety of suggested “summer announcements and events” for the president. Clinton could announce “the national roll out” of a $195 million anti-drug media campaign, complete with a “road block” purchase of ads on network television that night; he could launch a summer reading initiative; he could crack down on health insurers in federal plans that discriminate against sicker patients. Knowing how to sell a story, Kagan scribbled a note on the side of that memo saying if Clinton did that, they should “find three victims” from the “diabetic community.” She has shown all through her public life an effort to knowingly hide her true feelings on issues but as that shows deceit is part of her repertoire
G-Guns) The Second Amendment has been judged to be a personal right and is plain to be by those who can read the plain English that it is written in the Constitution. Over 75% of the public also sees it as a personal right but the same is not so with Kagan. McDonald v. Chicago, where the Court decided 5 -4 that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is not only a right you have against the federal government, and the Second Amendment (like most of the Bill of Rights) also secures a right you can assert against state and local governments. She failed to file a brief that the right is a constitutionally protected right, which it is. She also when the Supreme Court was asked in 1987 to decide if the D.C. gun ban was unconstitutional (the same law that the Court eventually struck down in Heller), Kagan wrote to Justice Marshall on the Court that she was “not sympathetic” toward the argument that the Second Amendment doesn’t allow D.C. to completely ban all guns.The recent confirmation of that right could come crashing down with Kagan and the loss of one conservative judge. Sotomayor in her confirmation hearings stated she believed the 2nd Amendment gaurenteed an individual the right to own a gun. She lied and was one of the four voting against it. Obama lies on a continual basis and it seems his pick for the Supreme Court does too. Why would a liberal like both of them be any different? She too will say it is an individual right after the court ruled but future gun cases will show her real agenda. Lying about what you believe has no penalty once you are on the court . Calling them your Honor is a joke because they have none.
J- Judge) She has never been one, period. Kagan has no judicial experience. It is not a pre-requisite but is a certainly a beneficial and would give a strong indicator of her fitness for the court.
M- Marriage) She is thought to be the lynchpin towards the court affirming gay marriage where the Constitution affords no such right. The founders would have never considered such as a right. When she was Solicitor General she showed her distaste of the Defense of Marriage Act which as law she was to uphold. Gay and lesbian groups are jubilant at her nomination and see gay marriage coming as a right with her on the court.
M- Military) As Dean at Havard University she was solidly against allowing military recruiters on campus because of the ” Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. The Supreme Court slapped down the university for doing so. This shows her poor understanding of law and Constitution. It also shows a contempt for the military.
S- Socialist) In Kagan’s undergraduate thesis “To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933” a sorrow for the demise of socialism as strong influence is shown. “In our own times, a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States. Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism’s glories than of socialism’s greatness.” Also “Why, in a society by no means perfect, has a radical party never attained the status of a major political force? Why, in particular, did the socialist movement never become an alternative to the nation’s established parties?” Many talking heads see no socialist bent with these words as they see no similar bent in Obama. What does it take, a tattooed S on ones forehead?
In toto we can see a nominee that has an affinity for socialism and likely will apply judicial activism for abortion and gay marriage. She has shown bias against the rights of the 2nd amendment and military. Also she has no judicial experience. Of any nominees in the last 50 years she is the least qualified and unfit by all standards of a majority of the American people. Many think she will be affirmed and if so the socialist, morally bankrupt destruction that Obama and Democrats have shoved on the people will increase.
