Skip to comments.A Veteran Puts Kagan to Shame
Posted on 07/02/2010 6:12:37 PM PDT by Nachum
It is a remarkable fact that President Obama has nominated to the Supreme Court a woman who, as dean of Harvard Law School, discriminated against military recruiters in violation of federal law. Remarkable, but true. Yesterday, our friend Pete Hegseth testified in opposition to Kagan's confirmation at the invitation of Republican members of the Judiciary Committee. I find it interesting that his perspective--no doubt representative of most Americans--is one that the Democratic members did not think it necessary to consider as part of the confirmation hearing. Pete stated this part of the case against Elena Kagan eloquently:

Constitution? What’s that? Ohhhh, you mean that old document that doesn’t apply anymore.. /sarcasm
And pointedly I might add. He was fabulous and even Hatch seemed moved.
Excellent. I hope everyone takes 5 minutes to watch the video. I couldn’t help but wonder what Sessions and Hatch were thinking while he was talking. I thought perhaps Specter was sleeping but maybe he was reading a handout of the guy’s talk. This guy can’t be labeled a kook or right wing nut job....but that won’t stop the ignorant from trying. He put in his time and did his job honorably. More than we can say for most of the folks he’s addressing his comments to.
The list, ping
Wow. Powerful statement.
He is to sane for our Congress.

Prepared STATEMENT: Pete Hegseth Prepared Remarks for Kagan Confirmation Hearings
If one of the conservatives on the court goes down while Obama is there, that will be serious.
Just when I think I couldn’t be more thankful and proud of our military...wow...God bless him.
Wow!! BTTT !!
Thank you Captain. You put all those worthless deadbeats in the hearings with their self-importance to SHAME. They truly are a disgrace and must be removed. Thank you again Captain. Your statement falls on deaf ears to those slugs behind their little name plates but it sure resonates with US, the “small people”, the surfs.
OUTSTANDING VIDEO - SEND TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS! Tell them to fill their congressmen’s mail boxes with VOTE NO on Kagan! Her breaking Federal law should have been enough to sink her nomination! That’s for anyone who believes the law means anything. VIDEO LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5w-E55fZ1c&feature=player_embedded
Never count your Hatches before they chicken.
And what excuse to deny confirmation will the Republicans have if they let this one go through without a filibuster.
Best 5 minutes of my week, thanks to you and “pete”.
The book, it is marked.
Fantastic! Yet it will be so _I don’t have a word! While Republicans roll over for her. If one more conservative dies or resigns. We are in a heap of trouble!!
Remember to thank God for this Captain and the 1,000’s of others just like him who know BS when they see it
All I got to say is, “Wow.” He nailed it. And yet, despite of the overwhelming evidence against her, she’ll still get to sit on the high court in the land deciding cases through her liberal and socialistic colored glasses.
Well well well. Liberal logic on display. Kagan was working for a University which accepts funds from a nation where homosexuals are executed. So let me get this straight. Barring homosexuals from military service is a moral injustice. But accepting money from a nation which executes homosexuals is morally acceptable? Kagan and other liberals evidently will ignore moral injustice if the price is right.
I would label this as a moral compromise of the first order!
Thanks for posting this.
It’s definitely worth watching.
WOW! This guy is fantastic!!! (....and correct!)
Now THAT is what I’d call a searing indictment. Thanks for posting.
righteous..... a fine expose of Kagan the big talker. What did she actually do? She banned military recruiters because the gays were throwing a snit fit over “don’t ask don’t tell”. Why does America hate Harvard? Kagan is one good reason
In another time, this man’s testimony would have guaranteed the candidate’s rejection by the Senate. Sadly, we are living at a time in which our legislative branch is festering with cancer.
What ya figure the over / under is for this guy to be Audited by the IRS for say the next 30 years is?
I took the time to listen and would agree well worth everyones time to hear this young military man’s address to congress on his oppostion to Kagan being appointed to the supreme court.
Great post, Thanks!
One question every Senator should be required to answer: If Kagan opposed the DADT law, what other laws would she oppose as Supreme Court justice?
No vote should be allowed until each and every Senator answers in a clear, unequivocal manner. To do otherwiswe makes a mockery of the process and the Supreme Court itself!
I understand what you are saying....but my guess is that this guy would have nothing to worry about with an audit.
I say: Increase the focus on the corruption of THIS administration, beginning with the Department of Justice (criminal dismissal of Black Panther Voter Intimidation Case).
Yep. Joe Brown was a Memphis Criminal Courts judge from 1990-2001. He resigned the judgeship because “he had too many irons in the fire”
Great video! I sent it around to my e-mail list.
