I encourage anyone in America to call the senator and encourage a no vote on Obama's SCOTUS nominee. While she may not have been a judge before her views are clear. She is Anti-Gun, Pro-death (baby killing), anti constitutional limits on the feds, and very pro homosexual rights even though she continues to hide her own lesbianism. A SCOTUS judge needs to be free from biases yet she has also been very much a part of the liberal left wing of the democrats. So we need to stop this train before it starts because she is only 50 so that is a lot of years to have a staunch left wing liberal in the SCOTUS. She is even more leftist then the judge she is replacing.

I think she will face some tough questioning - particularly about her minority faculty hiring and stance on campus military recruiting - but she will ultimately be approved.

I wouldn't say she's more liberal than Justice Stevens, I think the court will have the same makeup with her confirmation, slightly right-leaning. GWB actually had a greater impact on the political leanings of the court as he chose the replacement for Sandra Day O'Connnor, often a swing vote.

I think Kagan is more likely to take heat because she's never been a judge and has no experience.

You cant be unbiased in that position. I understand that you would like a Staunch Right Wing Republican...but what do you expect? Obama is on the Verge of Centralism...besides himself, he's obviously going to try and appoint the most Left of possibilities by American Standards.

Is this the same appointment as the Supreme Judge position that someone said Hilary Clinton should go for...and Her Husband told everyone that she was too old for it :laugh: ...only I thought that was going to end up being a left side Democrat replacing a really old man...who I thought people really liked??

This is what I think will give her the hardest time. I don't see how we can have someone sit on the highest bench in the country who has never, not once, done it before.

Me too, Amy, I'm counting the days.

I'm much more upset about this "health care" train wreck that has been foisted on us. I pray we get enough Repubs elected in Nov. to repeal the thing.

From my Tea Party newsletter. I'm going to write my TX Senator John Cornyn tomorrow.

Tea Party Nation
A message to all members of Tea Party Nation

Tea Party Nation opposes Elena Kagan to be the next Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

Elena Kagan's nomination came as no great shock. The Obama administration and it's willing allies in the media are spinning the story that Kagan is just "one of the people." Nothing could be further from the truth

Kagan was chosen by Obama for a number of reasons. First, she has a very thin paper trail. She has not served as a Judge and her academic writings are limited so, the administration hopes she will fly under the radar.

Second, Obama has chosen someone who is as radical as he is. Remember, Obama wants to transform this country from a right of center country, to a European style socialist country. He knows the congress is going to go from Democratic controlled to either Republican controlled or split evenly. To get much of his agenda enacted or saved, he is going to need control of the judiciary.

In 2001, Obama, not even a US Senator at the time, gave an interview to WBEZ in Chicago. In that interview, he criticized the Warren court, which at the time was the most liberal court this country had ever seen. Obama said:

"The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent, as radical I think as people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. At least as it's been interpreted."

This is what Obama wants in Supreme Court Justices.

Right now, the court is divided, with a minority liberal block consisting of Stevens, Breyer, Ginsburg and Sotomayor. Stevens is retiring. Breyer and Sotomayor are young and healthy, by Supreme Court standards. Ginsburg has had some health problems. By replacing Stevens with Kagan, there will be at least three liberal members on the court for the next 20 years. If Ginsburg were to retire, he could solidify the liberal wing of the court in place for the next 20 years.

The Conservative wing of the court is made of of Chief Justice Roberts, Justices Alito, Thomas and Scalia. Justice Kennedy remains a "swing" vote.

Kennedy and Scalia are both 74. Age is a consideration and if one of them were to leave the court, Obama could have the opportunity to remake a liberal court that would severe our judicial system from all remaining ties to the Constitution.

Kagan must be stopped.

Here is what we need to do.

Our best chance to stop Kagan is in the judiciary committee. We need to contact all of the Republicans on that committee and get them all to vote no. The nomination cannot leave the committee without at least one republican vote.

The Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are:

Jeff Sessions R-AL
Orin Hatch R-UT
Chuck Grassley R-Iowa
Jon Kyl R-AZ
Lindsey Graham R-SC
John Cornyn R-TX
Tom Coburn R-OK

We need to let them know in no uncertain terms that we do not want Kagan's nomination voted out of the Judiciary Committee. Time is on our side. If we work now, we can stop her nomination. All it takes is work on our part and some courage from the Republicans in the Senate.

Contrary to the myth that is repeated by certain Republicans, the President is not entitled to his nominee. The role of the Senate is to give advice and consent for that nomination. Their role is also to represent we the people. And we the people do not want this radical leftist to get a life time appointment to the Nation's highest court.

Act today and forward this email to your friends and ask them to act too.

I am not a republican so no I would not want a right wing republican. I am a constitutionalist. I want a literalist who believes in orginal intent i can care less about their politics. This lady was a staffer that is too political for this post.

My Senator has already said he is fighting it tooth and nail. Sadly she will probably get confirmed and we'll be stuck with her for many years to come.

I can tell you, that doesnt bode well for anything political, because it causes Stagnation.

The Canons at Saint Paul's used to have Life Tenure...and they would not resign...they would stay until they litterally died. They began to have very set ways, nothing changed, and everything was under their complete control.

I am dead against Life Tenure for anything but a Monarch.

Though the rules were changed many years ago to stop Canons having life Tenure...you then obviously have to wait until the last ones in before the rule change, die off. I arrived just after the last one had gone...he actually did Retire...infact two of the last retired, I think because they couldnt cope with the change...one returned, in a little urn, during my Tenure :unsure:

Here is anothing thing...if you are going to have a Life Tenure...The WORST way to go is by appointment. If you have ANY doubts about the person, you should oppose them because you might be waiting like forty years for the next opportunity.

How many of these Judges are there :huh:
