A Smoking Gun in the Kagan Case?
http://powerlineblog.com/ ^

Posted on 06/29/2010 5:56:05 PM PDT by macquire

The note does appear to be in Kagan's handwriting; you can see a sample of her writing here. Unless there is some other interpretation of these documents that does not occur to me, it appears that Elena Kagan participated in a gigantic scientific deception. On behalf of the Clinton White House, she deliberately subverted what was supposed to be an objective scientific process. The ACOG report was certainly seen in that light by the federal courts. Federal Judge Richard Kopf was deeply impressed by the scientific integrity of the report; he wrote: "Before and during the task force meeting," he concluded, "neither ACOG nor the task force members conversed with other individuals or organizations, including congressmen and doctors who provided congressional testimony, concerning the topics addressed" in the ACOG statement. This statement was obviously false. The federal courts were victimized by a gross deception and a perversion of both the scientific process and the judicial process, carried out, the evidence appears to show, by Elena Kagan. Ms. Kagan has a great deal of explaining to do. Unless she can come up with an innocent explanation for these documents, she should not be confirmed.

does it really matter WHAT is uncovered?
We have a bunch of weenie Repubs who simply want a moment in the spotlight “grilling her,” but will roll over like a golden retriever showing its belly in submission when it comes time to actually confirm her to the SCOTUS.

They all suck!

Gerald Fords real name was Leslie Lynch King Jr. named after his birth father, then his mother re-married a Gerald R. Ford and they changed his name after his step-dad.

Nope, it does not. The current bunch of Republicans are almost as useless as the Democrats.

I read the article but I couldn't find the name of the author.

Other than that, this describes a situation wherein a set of facts were inserted into a federal case that were opposite of what was intended. If it is what happened, whoever changed the facts needs to be prosecuted. Obviously, it is similar to what Salazar is alleged to have done.

And the next question is obvious. How many cases have the Democrats submitted to the courts where the text has been altered to change the facts?

Kagan is a crook, just like Hussein, who will lie and/or manipulate data to meet the political end desired. Truth is not important: only the end result—in this case, more dead babies.

It’s nightmarish. It Federal judges are unable to verify the truth of what is being submitted, any number of legal atrocities can come about. If this is what really happened, I hope that the judge who ruled on the issue that Kagan was the advocate will cry foul and order a criminal investigation.

Is it too much to ask that when a story is posted and abbreviated to the point of incomprehensibility, that the poster give us a clue to enable us to know if we want to take the time to click on the link?

What the hell is the ACOG report?

I know, I can just skip it, but the article might actually be useful. On principle, I refuse to waste my time. I'll never know...

Hedy Lamar and she co-invented a method of changing radio frequencies randomly as a message was being sent and a method of receiving them on the other end. This method is still in use today in some instances. She was a great Patriot and, as you said, a real hottie.

So, lemme get this straight; a known flaming kommie progressive libtard offers up some alternate language to be inserted in a medical report and the medical entity apparently complies and we're supposed to be shocked at the actions of the known flaming kommie progressive libtard??? I'm much more curious why the ACOG would submit to the change which contradicted the language in their original report. One has to wonder if there weren't other contributing incentives, eh?

“It seems that the most important statement in the famous position paper of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists—a 1996 document that was central to the case of partial-birth-abortion defenders for the subsequent decade and played a major role in a number of court cases and political battles—was drafted not by an impartial committee of physicians, as both ACOG and the pro-abortion lobby claimed for years, but by Elena Kagan, who was then the deputy assistant to the president for domestic policy.”

-- I'm much more curious why the ACOG would submit to the change which contradicted the language in their original report. --

I don't think the two sentences are contradictory, although omitting the "could identify no circumstances" one of them does change the "tone" of the report.

[A] select panel convened by ACOG could identify no circumstances under which [the partial-birth] procedure ... would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman.

An intact D&X,, however, may be the best or most appropriate procedure in a particular circumstance to save the life or preserve the health of a woman.

As for why ACOG would agree to make the change, and radically change the tenor of the report, they are a pro-abortion organization. They are not neutral, as a policy matter, and only a fool would take them to be as such. The judge that lauded ACOG for its "objectivity" and "neutrality" was likewise engaging in policy-making, and wanted his decision to withstand appellate scrutiny.

ACOG is no more neutral than is the AMA, or the ABA. All of those professional organizations are agenda-driven.

She was one of the principals on the frequency hopping algorithm patents that are used on a huge number of things today, notably in communications in general, and cell phones in particular.

An amazing combination of looks and brains. Most people don’t know that.

I think that most in the GOP will vote against her nomination. Expecting more would be unreasonable. But she is indeed a turkey of a choice:

I should have known that ACOG, fitting the mold of many "professional" associations, would tilt to the left. The only honor is amongst the theives who are all taking us in the same direction -- over a cliff. Thanks for your input.
