In her message, Andrea Lafferty rightly defines Kagan as a Progressive Liberal activist whose efforts will be towards the continued undermining and destruction of what little yet remains of Americas' founding Christian-based worldview. Kagan is also an avowed lesbian, so we can expect her to abuse her influence as a Supreme Court judge to promote and enforce still more gender confusion....Linda Worth Reading by Andrea Lafferty
May 10, 2010 - Washington, DC - Traditional Values Coalition Executive Director Andrea Lafferty issued the following statement today on President Obamaâ€™s nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to become the next Supreme Court Justice of the United States:
â€œPresident Obamaâ€™s nomination of Elena Kagan today shows that he is determined to continue pushing the U.S. Supreme Court to fulfill his vision of having a leftist and activist judiciary for the next three to four decades.
â€œIn his remarks this morning, Obama made it clear that Kagan will be an activist judge who will use her power on the Supreme Court to impose their hard left personal views on the Constitution and the law.â€
TVC opposes her confirmation for a number of reasons. The most significant are:
â– She violated federal law by ousting the U.S. military from recruiting at Harvard Law School because of her activist support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) agenda on campus -- an action reversed by a unanimous Supreme Court decision. If appointed, she will undoubtedly use her position to support the LGBT agenda.
â– Disrespecting our military during a time of war is a shameful action â€“ and ignoring a federal law she didnâ€™t like shows disrespect for the rule of law. She has made it clear that she canâ€™t serve with impartiality and integrity on the Supreme Court.
â– As Solicitor General, she argued in the Citizens United case against the right of businesses to be actively involved in political campaigns -- a ruling which President Obama used during his last State of the Union Address to publicly chastise and humiliate the justices sitting before him. Referring again to this ruling today, President Obama made clear he intends for Kagan to advance his own anti-business and anti-free market agenda.
â– As Dean of Harvard Law School, she directed the school toward a focus on international law and policy. It is troubling that she may use international law in her Supreme Court rulings if confirmed.
â– Obama gave a wink to the left to let them know that Kagan is one of them. She will be another of Obamaâ€™s â€œempatheticâ€ judges who will ignore the Constitution and the law to impose her personal agenda on cases.
â€œPresident Obamaâ€™s pick of Elena Kagan demonstrates his willingness to subvert the Constitution for his personal agenda and impose his leftist ideology on our nation for the next 30 to 40 years,â€ continued Lafferty. â€œThe Obama Administration has already saddled the next two generations of Americans with a mountain of debt, and the lifetime appointment of Elana Kagan to the Supreme Court will extend the radical Obama agenda over them.â€
