All but five Republicans will exercise common sense and good judgment and vote against Elana Kagan’s appointment to the Supreme Court. They recognize that Kagan has no judicial experience and should not be one of the most important judges in the land for the rest of her life. The cases she would adjudicate will be the most important and affect the greatest number of people for the longest period of time. Since when does anyone appoint a judge’s clerk to the bench of the highest court in the land?
Kagan has a lifetime record of political activism aligned with the extreme positions of none other than Pres. Barack Obama. She is from his world and he appointed her precisely because he knows he can count on her to rule in favor of his positions, which amounts to fundamentally changing America. That is not the duty of a Supreme Court Justice. This court is for the sole purpose of upholding the Constitution exactly as it’s written with complete impartiality.
Senator Jeff Sessions made a plea to the Senate to vote against her appointment, falling on the deaf ears of five Republicans who must not care about pure interpretation of the Constitution.
As expected, even though it’s a travesty, every Democrat except one, Sen. Ben Nelson of Florida, is expected to vote in her favor.
“Republicans said Ms. Kagan would be the first nominee put forward by a Democratic president to face opposition from a Democratic senator since 1968….On the other side of the aisle, Maine Republicans Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe were joined by Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Judd Gregg of New Hampshire and Richard Lugar of Indiana in saying they would support Ms. Kagan.” (emphasis mine) http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703545604575407190604642352.html?mod=WSJ_hpp_MIDDLENexttoWhatsNewsSecond
Collins, Snowe and Graham can always be counted on to help the Democrats advance their agenda against the will of voters on the right. THEY FORGET TO DANCE WITH THE PARTY THAT BROUGHT THEM. Gregg seems to think that a president has the right to appoint anyone he wishes and that no Senator should stand in his way. Someone should remind Gregg that the Senate is a check/balance to protect the people from a dictator “fundamentally changing America”, as Obama has promised to do many, many times.
These five Republicans NEED to hear from Americans today. The vote is Thursday. We’re already saddled with Soto-Mayor who promised to be impartial and has already broken that promise, voting her personal beliefs regardless of the Constitution.
A known life-time activist will not pass up the opportunity to render a judgment that furthers her own personal beliefs. Once on the bench, she can do whatever she likes and no one can stop her. There will be no consequences and she will answer to no one.
Call these five Republicans and demand that they vote against the appointment of an activist with no judicial experience to the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Tell them that you are fed up with Republicans joining Democrats to the ruination of America.
AND PLEASE – VOTE THESE PEOPLE OUT OF OFFICE! DON’T GIVE THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONTINUE ADVANCING THE DEMOCRATS’ AGENDA. LINDSEY GRAHAM SUPPORTS GLOBAL WARMING/CAP AND TRADE LEGISLATION! VOTE HIIM OUT BEFORE HE DOES ANY MORE DAMAGE TO OUR ECONOMY.

The following article should be widely reported and read by every American. Propaganda is designed to promote the interests of the rulers of Palestine, namely the terrorist organization, Hamas, and to hinder the nation of Israel. America sends millions of dollars in aid to Palestine every year to help the poor imprisoned people, supposedly the fault of Big Bad Israel. The truth is that Israel only takes the steps neccessary to protect themselves from rockets and terrorists coming from Palestine. They are not responsible for imprisoning the poor Palestinians. That’s the actions of Hamas who totally needs poor imprisoned Palestinians to paint a picture of dire straights for sympathy and cover. Don’t be duped.
Every article says that Israel’s blockade is responsible for the plight of Palestine’s poor. If that’s true, how do they explain the posh shopping mall stocked with luxury merchandise IN PALESTINE? Is Israel really preventing them from receiving what they need? How did they get the materials to build that mall? How did they get the merchandise being sold there?
Most of the new resorts “are owned by members, or associates, of Hamas,” he reported. “In addition, the Hamas municipalities charge high fees, in Gaza terms, for the use of public beaches,”
Last Monday, IDF forces foiled a large terrorist attack when soldiers identified a group of 10-12 terrorists, some on explosive-laden horses, heading towards the border fence undermortar cover fire. (Palestinians fired mortar rounds to keep Israeli’s busy defending themselves while these explosive-laden horses rushed toward the Israeli border.)
Hamas terrorists fired a Russian rocket into Israel last week.
As Americans, we need the truth and we need to support Israel against terrorists. Americans don’t support terrorists, especially those attacking our ally. At least, we didn’t think we did. We need to stop sending our taxdollars to Palestine to be used by Hamas who continues to keep the citizens impoverished. Our taxdollars don’t reach the impoverished anyway. If they did, there would no longer be poor Palestinians.
Enough is enough. Demand that your elected representatives get to the truth. Send them the truth if they act ignorant of it. Demand they stop sending our money to terrorists. Hamas will be forced to support the people to prevent an uprising and stay in power. If you truly want peace in that region, stop supporting the terrorists. Stop supporting Hamas.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
This is the flag that should be flown over the White House on September 20th!
According to China Daily at http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2009-07/13/content_8422505.htm, the Chinese flag will be raised over the White House on 9/20.
“Chinese associations in the United States had applied to hold a ceremony in front of the US President’s residence to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of PRC.”
However, Fox News reported that the Obama administration is refuting this claim. I hope something like this will never happen. But I worry about the huge American debt that China has purchased and the future debt this administration will have to sell with the out-of-control spending Obama, Pelosi and Reid have launched us into.
We need to stop the spending and pay off the current debt. We are wrong to be in the debt of China. What if they pressured the U.S. for something that compromises our values? Could we turn them down?
Can anyone remember the Tiananmen Square Massacre in 1989?
I’m not sure that any celebration of any kind should be held anywhere in America by anyone to celebrate 60 years of brutality, forced abortion, political imprisonment of the Chinese citizens and Communism. Where is the honor in those things? What does America really have in common with that form of government that we should be allowing “honor” services here? In my view, NONE.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
