    As the number of President Obama's judicial appointments and nominations continues to grow, it appears pretty clear that he does not care about the individual's right to self-defense.... Elena Kagan, Obama's newest Supreme Court nominee, fits this mold. The Supreme Court has only been very narrowly supportive of an individual's right to bear arms. For example, there was the 5-4 vote in the Heller decision when it struck down Washington, D.C.'s handgun ban in 2008 and a similar 5-4 vote in on Monday in the decision to strike down Chicagoís ban in ďMcDonald.Ē In the future, Kaganís opinion could be...

    While she smiled, nodded, and answered the softball questions lobbed at her with an alarming vacuity, the nominee of the Obama Administration to replace the retired Justice John Paul Stephens, Solicitor General Elena Kagan, was exposed by hard-hitting research done by those seeking to protect our youngest neighbors, children in the womb, from the evil of abortion. Her radical opposition to the first Human Right, the Right to Life, is clear in her rhetoric and record - and has now been uncovered in her past actions in governmental service. It has now been revealed that she played a key role...

    Perhaps the most startling aspect of the Supreme Court opinions in McDonald v. Chicago was the dissenters' assault on District of Columbia v. Heller. Not only did Justice Stephen G. Breyer vote against extending the Second Amendment to state and local governments, he also argued forcefully and at length for overturning Heller and, therefore, for turning the Second Amendment into a practical nullity. Ominously, Justice Sonia Sotomayor joined the Breyer dissent - contradicting what she told the U.S. Senate and the American people last summer. Regarding the key issue in McDonald - whether the 14th Amendment makes the Second Amendment...

He's raised questions about Kagan's generally liberal political beliefs, and contends that Kagan would usher in vast expansions of government power as a member of the Supreme Court. On ABC/Washington Postís ďTop LineĒ today, Coburn ratcheted up his critique of Kagan, saying she hasnít been as forthcoming about her views as she should be, and questioning her interpretation of the Constitutionís Commerce Clause as well as her expressed willingness to follow court precedents. ďI think...

    With those words in mind, alarm bells should have gone off during Elena Kaganís confirmation testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. Hereís what Kagan told Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa): It has long been thought, starting from the ďMillerĒ case, that the Second Amendment did not protect such a right. . . . Now the Heller decision has marked a very fundamental moment in the court's jurisprudence with respect to the Second Amendment. And as I suggested to Senator Feinstein there is not question going forward that ĎHellerí is the law, that it is entitled to all the precedent...

We know that her heart and mind are devoted to leftist causes and that she can be counted on to find rationales to further those aims in whatever cases come before the court.

    As most conservative writers have pointed out many times, the present Administration exhibits a shocking disregard and near-contempt for the U.S. Constitution. Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan, is a perfect case in point. (Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan walks towards the office of Sen. Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, May 20, 2010. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta)). While Dean of the Harvard Law School Kagan did not require students to study the U.S. Constitution at all. Instead, she required that they study foreign and international law. The implications of such a mindset are enormous.

    From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.orgPROFILE: ELENA KAGAN When it was announced in 2008 that Cass Sunstein would be joining the Harvard Law School faculty, Kagan said: "Cass Sunstein is the preeminent legal scholar of our time -- the most wide-ranging, the most prolific, the most cited, and the most influential. His work in any one of the fields he pursues -- administrative law and policy, constitutional law and theory, behavioral economics and law, environmental law, to name a non-exhaustive few -- would put him in the very front ranks of legal scholars; the combination is singular and breathtaking."http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=2398_________________________________________________ From David Horowitz's...

    The Obama administration in a brief to the Supreme Court has backed the Vatican's claim of immunity from lawsuits arising from cases of sexual abuse by priests in the United States. The Supreme Court is considering an appeal by the Vatican of an appellate court ruling that lifted its immunity in the case of an alleged pedophile priest from Oregon. In a filing on Friday, the solicitor generla's office argued that the Ninth Circuit court of appeals erred in allowing the lawsuit brought by a man who claims he was sexually abused in the 1960's by the Oregon priest. The...

    In 2006, Elena Kagan hailed Israeli supreme court justice Aharon Barak as her ďjudicial heroĒ: other folks view him much less favorably than Kagan doesóand that she may have a strange view of what ďdemocracyĒ is and what the ďrule of lawĒ entails. Hereís some of what Seventh Circuit judge Richard A. Posner has to say about Barak (in his book How Judges Think, pp. 362-368)*: " One of the most prominent of the aggressively interventionist foreign judges is Aharon BarakÖ. [H]is book on judging is Exhibit A for why American judges should be wary about citing foreign judicial decisionsÖ....

    Sex and the single Kagan. That's what the nomination of Elena Kagan is all about for New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, who just this past week offered her take on the controversy surrounding the nomination of the elite leftist from Princeton and Harvard to the Supreme Court. Kagan is single and a woman, and men -- especially those who are conservative and occupy the nation's less financially blessed zip codes -- "are threatened by more successful women." And again, the spinning spinster of Eighth Avenue in Manhattan, headquarters of the Times and ground zero for the media elite,...

    ABC News' Ariane de Vogue reports: Officials at National Archives (in charge of Kagan papers at the Clinton Library) are very worried about the release of documents. In large part because of email -- the amount of paper is unprecedented: 160,000. The Roberts papers (which seemed like the mother of all dumps) was a mere 70,000.
