  • Likud likens V15 activity to past corruption allegations against Herzog

    Herzog exercised his right to remain silent during the investigation, which was closed because there was not enough evidence to press charges. A public campaign to change the political leadership is the Leftís corrupt attempt to buy an election victory, a Likud campaign said Saturday. The comments referred to V15, an organization dedicated to bringing political change that is partnered with OneVoice Israel, which works with Israelis and Palestinians to lobby their political leadership to bring about a two-state solution. The Likud said V15ís activities break campaign finance laws, comparing them to the ďBarak nonprofits affair,Ē in which former prime...
  • Radical Leftist Judicial Nominee Halligan Fails Senate Cloture

    03/07/2013 5:30:16 AM PST · by scottfactor · 2 replies ^ | 03/07/2013 | Gina Miller
    Itís hard to keep up with all the criminal and otherwise reprehensible behavior of this current administration in Washington, so things like judicial nominees can be overlooked under the flood of mammoth malfeasance coming from the Obama regime. But this judicial nominee needs to be noticed, because she would be yet another leftist subversive radical who is a pure danger to our constitutional republic. Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) has nominated the 46-year-old leftist radical New York lawyer, Caitlyn Halligan, five times now, and so far she has failed five times. I may be a little late to...

    Judicial Watch ^ | March 4, 2013
    President Obama is for the fifth time trying to ram through the Senate confirmation of a radical pro-abortion, anti-gun rights activist to become a judge on the nationís most important federal appellate court. Previously, the candidate, a renowned leftist attorney who advocates for the rights of terrorists, has been blocked by Senate Republicans, but Obama refuses to give up. For the firth time, Caitlin J. Halliganís nomination is up for Senate approval to fill a vacancy on the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. Halligan is currently general counsel for the Manhattan District Aattorneyís office in New York. Itís hardly...

    Roll Call ^ | 8 December, 2011 | Humberto Sanchez
    Senate Republicans have high hopes of reclaiming the majority and possibly the White House next year, and thatís precisely why they say this weekís filibuster of D.C. Circuit Court nominee Caitlin Halligan is not a harbinger of a freeze on President Barack Obamaís judicial nominations. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) believes the golden rule applies in politics as much as it does in morality. ďĎDo unto others as you would have them do unto youí was a good rule a long time ago, and I think it applies today,Ē Graham said. ďI just think we ought to run the place assuming...

    The Senate rejected cloture on the filibuster of the confirmation of Caitlin Halligan to be a judge on the D.C. Circuit this afternoon. The vote was virtually a party line vote with every Democrat voting to invoke cloture and every Republican except Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) voting against it. Hatch voted Present and Murkowski voted to invoke cloture. To invoke cloture would have required 60 votes Yea. The final tally was 54 Yeas, 45 Nays, and 1 Present. How your senator voted is below. Grouped By Vote Position YEAs ---54 Akaka (D-HI) Baucus (D-MT) Begich (D-AK) Bennet...

    Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 6 December, 2011 | David Codrea
    [Credit Where Due: CCRKBA Alerted Gun Owners to Halligan Vote- See update below.] "Senate Republicans on Tuesday filibustered the nomination of Caitlin Halligan to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, blocking a nominee tapped last year by President Obama to serve on one of the countryís most powerful courts," Felicia Sonmez of The Washington Post reports. An appeal was made yesterday in Gun Rights Examiner for gun owners to contact their senators and oppose confirmation based on the nominee's anti-gun track record. At the time the report was filed, Gun Owners of America had put...

    The Senate has just defeated the cloture petition on Caitlin Halliganís nomination to the D.C. Circuit. Sixty votes were needed for cloture. The petition received only 54 votes in support and 45 votes against. (I believe that Senator Murkowski of Alaska was the only Republican to support cloture, but Iíll confirm that when I see the roll-call vote.) [Update: Hereís the roll-call vote. Murkowski was the only Republican yes vote. (Senator Hatch voted present, which is the functional equivalent of a no vote.)] By their unprecedented resort to the filibuster against President Bushís judicial nominees beginning in 2003 and by...
  • Halligan and the Second Amendment(DC Court of Appeal)

    Later today the Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on Caitlin Halligan’s nomination to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. My colleague Carrie Severino summarized the case against Halligan in this post, and Ed Whelan has written a series of posts that are available here. Since Ed and Carrie’s entries were published, it has come to my attention that Halligan has a very troubling record of dismissing the Second Amendment while embracing discredited legal theories favored by trial lawyers. In 2003, while serving as the solicitor general for the State of New York, Halligan signed the brief in the New York...
