Kagan Nomination Should Be Filibustered – Republicans, No Guts?

June 29, 2010

The very lack of information on Elena Kagan’s opinions regarding constitutional issues, which are key to this country’s survival as a free Republic, is the reason that Kagan should be dissected before Senate Republicans, carefully and in great depth.

Statements like “It’s fine if the law bans books because government won’t really enforce it” are stunning, with implications in several different directions. For one, it certainly indicates someone who has little or no respect for the Constitution, or by extension the people of this great country. It highlights the fundamental distrust of the individual right of free speech, on not only the part of the DeMarxist government, but is indicative of the inner Elena Kagan… the Obama clone who will be a rubber stamp for her Marxist boss.

There’s no longer any doubt in this country about who and what Barack Hussein Obama is and what he is trying to accomplish before he can be stopped. Elena Kagan wasn’t picked because she is a great jurist… or a jurist at all. She was picked by Obama because she is a political ideologue in the image of her boss, and can be reliably expected to follow Obama’s suicidal intentions for this country to a ‘T’.

The very fact that so much effort has gone into obscuring Kagan’s paper trail, including direct interference from the White House, is a glaring flare-lit tip-off to Republican Senators. Make no mistake… Elena Kagan favors a total ban on personal ownership of firearms. Philosophically, Kagan stands firmly with the dissenting Justices on the Supreme Court in Monday’s extension of the 2008 District of Columbia ruling in favor of an individual’s right to own and keep a firearm for self defense.

Those Justices would gladly support a total ban on firearms, such as has turned the United Kingdom into a bloody battleground, where citizens are regularly prosecuted and imprisoned for defending their own lives and property!! That’s the Elena Kagan that Republican Senators should be looking at, very carefully.

I assure you that we will be observing our Conservative Republican Senators throughout this process as well. A brilliant Jurist, Robert Bork, was destroyed by Ted Kennedy in an avalanche of lies and invective during his confirmation hearings, for no more reason than his opposition to Roe vs. Wade which is, and was, patently unconstitutional to start with… allowed by a gutless, timid Republican Senate. Sound familiar? The gutless part, that is.

Elena Kagan should be turned away. Not in revenge for the treatment of Robert Bork but because she is an out and out statist, and if not a Marxist, very closely politically and philosophically aligned with the DeMarxists. Republican Senators have the responsibility to see that only Constitutional originalists are selected for the Supreme Court. Senators, that is your responsibility to the people of this country… that is your responsibility to the Constitution.
There is a huge Constitutional Patriotic coalition out here and we are watching you as intently as we are watching the Kagan hearings.

Super Nominee – Super Scrutiny.

April 12, 2010

Senator Patrick (Leaky) Leahy (D-VT) has stated that Obama’s choice for the Supreme Court, to replace Justice John Paul Stevens who is retiring at the end of this term, should be in place for the next Supreme Court term which begins in October.

Barack Obama and John Paul Stevens

Umm, maybe not, Pat… there are some Senate Republicans who are going to work at their pay grade for once and just scrutinize the hell out of everything they’ve ever done. Oh, I don’t know, does the name Bork bring anything to mind? This was when Ted Kennedy opposed Judge Robert Bork’s nomination to the Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan. Ted Kennedy stood in front of the nation and attacked Bork, lying through his eye teeth. The Republicans were completely caught off balance and by the time they did react to the attack the Democrats owned the story. The rest is history.

History may be written here again this summer as the left stack up their leftist nominees, selected by their leftist boss, to advance through judicial activism what the left cannot win at the ballot box. How the Senate Republicans handle this process will tell us a whole bunch about who will stay in the Senate. The truth is we’ve had a gut full of Republicans making deals and pandering to our political opponents. It’s time to stand up and be counted or…?

To be sure there will be rich Conservative hunting grounds. Possibly, we should give all of Obama’s appointees a copy of the Constitution. I’m sure they will find it foreign to their belief and totally unknown to most. There’s the guy over in Berkeley who just ‘accidentally’ happened to misplace the 100 most important legal positions he had taken. I’m sure the Committee would just love to discuss that one at length.

I watched Senate Republicans roll over time after time in the confirmation hearings for Sonia Sotomayor. There was plenty there to question and yet Republicans who have been taking our money to do their jobs rolled over on their backs with their feet in the air. No mas. That’s not how we want you to tend our business. We expect you to be hard nosed and tough… be the party of no. Most especially, stand by the conservative principles that have made this country great.
You can’t go far wrong if you stick to that formula.
