  • Does Elena Kagen have a $20 million commitment to destroying the American Republic?

    What would you say if you learned that a member of the highest court in the land has spent the last 30 years openly advocating for the destruction of the US Constitution and even went so far as to accept $20 million from Shariah Law proponents to accomplish her goal? That Supreme Court Justice is Elena Kagan. The year after Ronald Reagan entered the Oval Office with the goal of restoring America to greatness; Elena Kagan penned a telling and disturbing senior thesis titled "To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933." In that body of work, Kagan...

    Advocates for keeping Harry Reid, D-Nevada, in the U.S. Senate based upon the flaws of his opponent, Republican Sharron Angle, are hard-pressed to defend the Senate majority leader over his rather frequent unintelligible gibberish. The latest example is Reid's defense of his vote in favor of Leftwing extremist Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court. Reid claims his vote for Kagan was 'out of concern for the Second Amendment.' The outrageous nature of such a claim is evidenced by the fact that Kagan is on record stating she has 'no sympathy' for those who support gun rights, despite her claims...

    Youtube ^ | Fr. Frank Pavone Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests For Life, gives very clear reasoning on why Elena Kagan should not be confirmed to the Supreme Court. In this video, he uses the words of the abortionist themselves, documented in Supreme Court testimony, to describe the procedure that Elena Kagan herself, supports: "The friction causes the fetus to tear apart. For example, a leg might be ripped off the fetus as it is pulled through the cervix." (This is from the Supreme Court's 2007 abortion decision.) Abortionist Martin Haskell said, under oath, "We would attack the lower extremity first, remove, you...

    Same-Sex Marriage: A federal judge decides marriage is a constitutional right and overturns California's Proposition 8 forbidding such unions. The issue is headed to a Supreme Court that Elena Kagan will be sitting on. The imperial judiciary has struck again, with Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker striking down California's Proposition 8, passed in November 2008 with 52% of the vote, on the grounds that the voter-approved law was a violation of gay couples' civil rights. Walker's ruling follows a Massachusetts federal judge's ruling last month that the state's married gay couples, also established by judicial fiat, were being wrongly...

    The Senate should not confirm Elena Kagan, because her views render her the first Supreme Court Justice who actively favors the introduction of Shariah law into national Constitutions and legal systems. To excuse themselves for voting for her confirmation, Senators of both parties have told themselves this vote for Kagan’s confirmation will result in a harmless swap: the substitution of one liberal justice for another. The reality is far more threatening and unprecedented in American history. A vote to confirm Elena Kagan’s nomination will bring a liberal, pro-Shariah justice to our highest Court. And if she is confirmed, her behavior...

In this report, ACOG had originally found that partial birth abortion was in fact not medically necessary to save the life of a woman, but Kagan changed...

    Speaking of unalienable rights, the GOP’s handling of the Kagan nomination thus far offers new evidence that the Party’s current leadership remains obtusely indifferent to the tragic watershed Kagan’s nomination represents for the American republic. In response to a question by from Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, she refused to support the fundamental notion that all people have unalienable rights. With the deceitful pseudo-cleverness now characteristic of those hostile to the principles of the Constitution, she pretended that as a Supreme Court justice she would be obliged to deal only with the rights enumerated in the Constitution.

    I was unable to watch Kagan’s explanation of her role in the ACOG policy statement live, but I understand from Ed Whelan’s excellent coverage that she essentially brushed off the issue (as I predicted here she would), explaining that she was merely helping ACOG state more clearly what the evidence before it already showed.   As I explained, however, there are reasons to doubt that. First, the ACOG task force — formed specifically and solely for the purpose of studying the medical efficacy of the procedure — met for two full days in October 1996, and the result of their collective...

    Elena Kagan's senior thesis at Princeton University, recounting the history of socialist politics in New York City, cited the theories of an influential German Marxist who notoriously switched allegiances to Nazism after Adolf Hitler attained power. Werner Sombart was widely recognized as an academic proponent of Marxism and was once praised by Karl Marx's colleague Friedrich Engels as the only German professor who understood Marx's Das Kapital. During World War I, however, Sombart endorsed Germany's "heroic" war against the "capitalist spirit" represented by England. In 1934, Sombart published Deutscher Sozialismus, which advocated the "total ordering of life" as an expression...

    Elena Kagan's controversial "Final Conflict" thesis on socialism was written in 1981 when she was 21 years old. Professor Harvey Klehr, an expert on the socialist and communist movements, told me that while he sensed "a lurking sympathy" in the document for the left-wing of the Socialist Party, he didn't find a "red flag" that would derail her nomination. Kagan's thesis covered the rise and fall of the socialist movement in New York City from 1900-1933. Clearly, however, the socialist movement has risen again, under the cover of the "progressive" tradition that includes not only the President who appointed Kagan...

Kagan, and liberals like her, do not start with the Constitution, then determine whether what they propose is permissible. Instead, they go in the opposite direction. They start with their leftist, statist agenda, then try to find a part of the Constitution that − by some stretch of the imagination − might seem to justify what they want to do. Sen.

  • When Kagan Played Doctor: Elena Kagan's partial-birth abortion scandal.

    Fourteen years ago, to protect President Clinton's position on partial-birth abortions, Elena Kagan doctored a statement by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Conservatives think this should disqualify her from the Supreme Court. They understate the scandal. It isn't Kagan we should worry about. It's the whole judiciary. Kagan, who was then an associate White House counsel, was doing her job: advancing the president's interests. The real culprit was ACOG, which adopted Kagan's spin without acknowledgment. But the larger problem is the credence subsequently given to ACOG's statement by courts, including the Supreme Court. Judges have put too much...

    Another Confirmation Convert Bethany Stotts, July 6, 2010 Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan indicated during her recent Senate confirmation hearings that, if confirmed, she would not give international law “independent precedential weight” in her court rulings. However, at a recent Heritage Foundation event, “Outsourcing Law? International Law and Its Importance in the Kagan Hearing,” held several days earlier, the speakers expressed their concern that, as with Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Kagan might attempt a “confirmation conversion,” making statements which belie her previous actions. “Indeed, during her confirmation process, Judge Sonia Sotomayor assured the Judiciary Committee that in her view, citations to...

    The alleged “failure of American radicalism,” perhaps appropriate for a paper that covers 1900-1933 and written in 1981, is not so apparent these days. As a student, Obama Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan was so interested in the socialist movement that she wrote a thesis about its history in New York City from 1900-1933. But the history of the Progressive Party, which ran FDR’s former vice president Henry Wallace as its presidential candidate in 1948, helps bring the subject up to date and explains the current direction of the Democratic Party. The Progressive Party was controlled by the Communist Party...

    Obama Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is uniquely unqualified for a seat on the high court...... However, Kagan's penchant for showing us, piece by piece, exactly who her heroes have been through the years opens up a frightening profile of this person who is set to gain a seat on the Supreme Court for life. Human Events published an article on July 1 that catalogs Kagan's praise of Socialist Nazi endorser Werner Sombart. Atlas Shrugs follows up with commentary on this fact.

    When asked whether Harvard Law School would have banned recruiters from the Catholic Church because the Catholic Church does not allow female priests, Supreme Court nominee did not directly answer the question but said that all employers needed to sign a form that said they did not discriminate on the bases of “gender and sexual orientation.”

    U.S. Senator Jim DeMint ^ | June 29, 2010 | Jim DeMint
    When a president and a Congress collude to pass and sign into law unconstitutional power grabs, bailouts and takeovers there is only one immediate backstop: the Supreme Court. Every branch of government has an obligation to preserve, defend and uphold the Constitution, and if the legislative and executive branches overstep their boundaries, the judicial branch can stop then. On the other hand, if the Supreme Court doesn't say "no" when the other two branches go too far, there is no tax that can't be levied, no mandate that can't be imposed, no regulation that can't be instituted and no industry...

    ...What were Americans thinking in November 2008? Did they think they had just voted to put in motion the Supreme Court appointment of someone who has never served as a judge, whose paper trail is as thin as it is indicative of extremism, and whose career as a political hack betrays a well-honed opportunism? Clearly, most of those voting for president were thinking of other things, such as the state of the economy and taking part in the historic election of our first black president. But if Solicitor General Kagan's free ride through a Democrat-dominated Senate proves anything, it's that...

During her time in the Clinton White House Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan worked to undermine opposition to the barbaric practice of partial birth abortion. She was able to get a contact at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) to insert a few lines in a report that was later used as the basis for legal challenges to a state ban on the practice. National...

    The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology is well-known in pro-life circles to be radically pro-abortion. For instance, ACOG supports the most heinous of all abortion practices, partial-birth abortion. When in 2007 the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the partial-birth abortion ban of 2003, ACOG released an indignant statement, which read, in part: "Today's decision … is shameful and incomprehensible to those of us who have dedicated our lives to caring for women," said Douglas W. Laube, MD, MEd, ACOG president. "It leaves no doubt that women's health in America is perceived as being of little consequence. "... The Supreme...
