Elena Kagan - #2008 - The Debating Game - Family Research Council

PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATORS, Vote Thursday or Friday  - Presidents come and go, but the Supreme Court goes on forever. --William Howard Taft
In all of American history, only 111 justices have had the privilege of serving on the U.S. Supreme Court. By the end of this week, members of the Senate will have made their decision on the 112th. If it is Elena Kagan, the President's controversial Solicitor General, she will most likely join this elite club with the third fewest confirmation votes of any nominee in history. Outside the Beltway, she is unpopular even with everyday Americans, who are "more convinced than ever" that she is an ideological liberal one goal: to supplant the Constitution with a permanent Obama agenda. "It is all but certain," Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said, "that, if confirmed, Ms. Kagan will bring to the [Court] a progressive activist judicial philosophy which holds that unelected judges are empowered to set national policy from the bench." Her entire career--from the Clinton administration to Harvard Law School and the Solicitor General's office--is marred by a trail of unprincipled decisions.
Whether it was rewriting a medical group's opinion to promote infanticide or intentionally fixing a case to sink marriage, Kagan has proven that she will always ignore the law if it conflicts with her ultra-Left philosophy (or career goals). She may have zero experience as a judge, but the White House believes that she has plenty where it matters most: in years of pro-abortion, anti-American activism. Like the liberals in Congress, she is on the wrong side of the American people (and the Constitution) on every value we hold dear: the promise of new life, the stability of the family, the valor of our troops, the power of faith, and the significance of speech. Yet five Republicans and all but one Democrat are willing to stake their reputation on her promotion to the most powerful court in the land. Read more........  Contact your senators (202-224-3121) today and remind them that they have one last opportunity to do something right before the August break--and confirming Elena Kagan isn't it.  Mark Warner is on record to being a "YES" vote for Kagan.  I called Jim Webb's office today, and supposedly he has NOT taken an official position yet........ So please call his office, we never know if our calls could possibly make a difference, at least we would know we tried, remember she will be a member of the Supreme Court for life.   Jim Webb  202-224-4024
