Welcome to the American Revolution II

Welcome to the American Revolution II
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
"We face a hostile ideology global in scope, atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose and insidious in method..." and warned about what he saw as unjustified government spending proposals and continued with a warning that "we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex... The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist... Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."Dwight D.

Elena Kagan WHY She was nominated? By a House of Fools?

WHY Elena Kagan was nominated

Sunday, August 22, 2010 10:46:55 PM

Someone figured out why Obama nominated Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court. Pull up the Supreme Courts website, go to the docket and search for Obama. Elena Kagan was the Solicitor General for all the suits against him filed with the Supreme Court to show proof of natural born citizenship. All of the requests were denied of course --- by Elena Kagan, the Solicitor General. The suits were never heard. Obama owes her big time. It just keeps getting deeper and deeper, doesn't it? The American people mean nothing any longer. It's all about payback time for those that compromised themselves to elect someone that maybe has no true right to even be there!

The news media will never tell us this --- even Fox News is afraid to say anything about the "natural born citizen" issue. I don't know what the truth is about Obama's birth certificate, and if Obama continues to have his way we will never know. Pass this along to anyone you think would actually care about this, so that people will know what is going on behind the scenes.

This take you directly to the Supreme Count page.

About the Office

The task of the Office of the Solicitor General is to supervise and conduct government litigation in the United States Supreme Court. Virtually all such litigation is channeled through the Office of the Solicitor General and is actively conducted by the Office. The United States is involved in approximately two-thirds of all the cases the U.S. Supreme Court decides on the merits each year. Elena Kagan was the Solicitor General so all "natural born citizen" Barack Obama case's came to her.

Barack Obama Appoints First Gay to Supreme Court in Elena Kagan, or Has He?

President Barack Obama has nominated Elena Kagan, the solicitor general of the United States, to the seat now held by Associate Justice John Paul Stevens, a liberal stalwart
who is retiring after 35 years on the Supreme Court. In an interesting development, when it became clear that Kagan had the inside track for the nomination, gay and liberal bloggers lauded Obama's impending selection of the first gay nominee on the High Court.

The Obama administration then went into attack mode, calling "rumors" that Elena Kagan was gay were part of a "right-wing smear campaign." The Obama spin operation targeted Ben Domenech, the conservative editor of The New Ledger, for his blog post "Obama's Top Ten Supreme Court Picks."

What was Domenech's offense? He wrote that the Kagan nomination "would please much of Obama's base. I have to correct my text here to say that Kagan is apparently still closeted -- odd, because her female partner is rather well known in Harvard circles" (Italics are the author's). Subsequently, he wrote an "apology" to Kagan in The Huffington Post.

It was a bruising battle of reverse political correctness. It is highly interesting as Kagan is a supporter of limits on free speech in the matter of political correctness, which is indicative that she is no civil libertarian. She may actually be a closet conservative. Her nomination is part of a course being navigated by the Obama administration that increasingly plots it towards a position on the center-right.

If the Bill Clinton administration is any clue, Obama is tacking to the right in order to bolster his chances at re-election. Elena Kagan served in the Clinton Justice Department and is strongly backed by the former President.
