  • Kagan Wants to Impose Her Values on Your Speech

    05/19/2010 8:49:45 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 6 replies · 378+ views ^ | May 19, 2010 | Terry Jeffrey
    Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan has expended a great deal of intellectual energy searching for a rationalization that would preserve freedom of speech for viewpoints she likes while imposing government controls on speech she does not like. Consider her approach to the 1991 Supreme Court case of Rust v. Sullivan. The issue here was whether the Department of Health and Human Services violated the right of free speech when it published regulations stating that federal tax dollars would not be provided under the Title X family planning program to clinics that either counseled people to have abortions, or referred people...

Association President Teri Adams criticized yesterday's nomination of Ms. Kagan as Supreme Court Justice and called on the U.S. Senate "to closely evaluate serious...

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."

    An Elena Kagan on the Supreme Court would mean trouble for the U.S. military. That's the assessment of Center for Military Readiness President Elaine Donnelly, who's opinion is based on what she's seen Kagan already do as solicitor general. "First, she is not a member of Congress. It's up to Congress to decide if the law (banning homosexuals from serving in the military) is repealed or [to] allow the Department of Defense to simply stop enforcing it. Where she will come into play is with the decision she already made in the case Witt v. The U. S. Air Force,"...

    Life News ^ | 5/13/10 | Americans United for Life Note: Americans United for Life is a national pro-life organization specializing in pro-life legal and legislative outreaches. Americans' lives are shaped and changed by the law, but a Supreme Court Justice’s role is not to impact people’s lives by shaping or changing the law according to her own beliefs. Rather, a Justice should apply the law as it is written to each case that arises before the Court. In the past 40 years, certain Supreme Court Justices, in the name of a right to abortion, have imposed their pro-abortion views on the American people, denying Americans their right...

    Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan said the high court should be focused on ferreting out improper governmental motives when deciding First Amendment cases, arguing that the government’s reasons for restricting free speech were what mattered most and not necessarily the effect of those restrictions on speech.

    Only Barack Obama, who ran for president just two years into his first senate term and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for accomplishments to be named later, could make inexperience a virtue. Obama nominated Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court precisely because, unlike every nominee since 1971, she was never a judge. Given her lack of a judicial record and a very few published law review articles, Americans need to scrutinize every little thing we know about her. Here's a tidbit discovered that could foreshadow how she might rule on the bench. As articles editor for the Harvard...

    When Barack Obama’s two faculty mentors at Harvard Law got in trouble for plagiarism, they were rescued by Dean Elena Kagan. In 1989, Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe hired first-year Harvard law student Barack Obama as his research assistant.  After Obama was elected president, Tribe would gush, "His stunning combination of analytical brilliance and personal charisma, openness and maturity, vision and pragmatism, was unmistakable from my very first encounter." Obama had one other prominent mentor among the Harvard faculty, Professor Charles Ogletree, an African American.  In the run-up to the election, Ogletree would enthuse, "I'm so excited about this candidacy...

    On Monday, Barack Obama officially nominated Elena Kagan to become the nation’s newest Supreme Court justice. Kagan would replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. The confirmation hearings for Kagan are likely to being sometime this summer. Supposedly not much is known about Kagan’s viewpoints on various issues. That is because she has never served a single day as a judge, but somehow Obama felt that she was qualified for a lifetime position amongst the highest-ranking judges in the country.

    By now, anyone with a working knowledge of narcissism recognizes the pathological condition of the president. Even liberals concede that the man who sends thrills up Chris Mathews' leg is self-absorbed. It therefore makes sense that Elena Kagan, his Solicitor General, is the SCOTUS nominee. In 2005, at a Harvard luncheon, Ms. Kagan waxed eloquent on Obama. She'd had the "privilege" of attending the DNC National Convention the year before and had experienced rapture: "He opened his mouth, said a few words, and the place was mesmerized. You could hear a pin drop. In part, that is because of all...
  • Chosen by Obama, Elena Kagan would give Supreme Court three female justices for first time

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Introducing his Supreme Court nominee to the nation, President Barack Obama on Monday portrayed Elena Kagan as a guiding force for a fractured court and a champion of typical Americans. She would be the youngest justice on the court and give it three women for the first time in history. Less excited, Republican senators said they would give the nomination a long, hard look in potentially contentious summertime confirmation hearings. One declared he would oppose her, but Democrats hold a strong majority of Senate seats, making eventual approval likely. In choosing Kagan, the U.S. solicitor general and...

    NEW YORK – President Obama's nominee for the Supreme Court, Elena Kagan, argued certain forms of speech that promote "racial or gender inequality" could be "disappeared." In her few academic papers, Kagan evidences strong beliefs for court intervention in speech, going so far as to posit First Amendment speech should be weighed against "societal costs.”
