"Choreographing Kagan's Path to Confirmation"

What with all the fuss over the Gulf oil spill, Arizona’s bill, etc etc etc…:bigyikes:

The Kagan confirmation process quietly procedes. :sleep:


In a way, it is sad that the confirmation process has become so political, so divisive, so confrontational. You have to be an old geezer to remember when such appointments were supposed to be non-political.:rolleyes:

But ever since Bork:blackeye: :slapfight: :stretcher: :crutches:

Here are some questions it would be fun to ask a New York liberal like Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan at her hearings next week:
– Roughly one-third of Americans are Evangelical Christians. Do you personally know any Evangelical Christians? Name two.
– In 1972, Richard Nixon was elected president with more than 60 percent of the vote, winning every state except Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. How many people do you know who voted for Nixon?
– Appropriate or inappropriate: Schools passing out condoms to seventh-graders? Schools passing out cigarettes to seventh-graders?
– Who is a greater threat to America, Sarah Palin or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

These questions are mild compared to what they did to Robert Bork.

For one, the Obama Administration is setting a precedence for future nominees, if our Country survives this Presidency. Any President can now isolate the Candidate, film an in-house interview and leave the media and any of their questions on the other side of the wall, empty-handed.

No amount of whining or tantrums will change things-it will be set, and that is not good for any of us-this secrecy.

God Bless.

I’d flunk that question myself. :slight_smile:

Who is a greater threat to America, Sarah Palin or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

Does Ahmadinejad have the capability to destroy America? I think not, so…

These questions are mild compared to what they did to Robert Bork.

Bork didn’t even get a “well qualified” recommendation from the ABA. So much for him IMO.

The liberal world is a very sequested, closed and narrow one indeed.

If so, why does it control nearly everything? :confused:

Liberalism or whatever you want to call it [soft tyranny, socialism, communism, leftism … yeah, yeah, yeah, they are all totally different things] … controls nearly everything because politics is goal number 1 to people on the left.

Liberals put their A Team into politics; conservatives put their A Team into business or other activities, but not politics.

Because of demands for acceptance by the 70% who are right of center. Demands for tolerance. Demands for acceptance of salami tactics. Demands for acceptance of progressivism.

Because whenever they are confronted, the left will change the subject or become bullies or use any of the tactics codified in “Rules for Radicals”. We see examples of this over and over; when they lose an election, they will demand endless recounts focused on where they can manipulate a few more votes [and when they lose the recounts, they will claim they actually won the recounts] or get court orders. Or appeal to the emotions “but what about the children!” is always a useful standby] or start a riot or instigate some disruption … anything that might get indulgent adults to give in to the unrestrained ids of the radical children.

Because of a lot of “small lies”. Lies such as denial of essential math: government spending can increase in small increments forever. Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey has stated it over and over: the party is over. When they increase tax rates in New Jersey, collections go down. When they increase government salaries in the face of private sector salary decreases or when government jobs increase as private sector jobs decline, the government unions demand that the government jobs and government salaries continue to increase. Because government unions say that “it’s just a bunch of numbers”.

The Leftist ‘Purification’ Movement
American Thinker, by Andrew Thomas

Original Article


Posted 6/25/2010 2:23:32 AM

To the contemporary conservative, progressive ideology is often murky and incomprehensible. It is very difficult for some on the right to understand the apparently illogical and unrealistic machinations of the radical leftist mindset. Their political objectives, if achieved, inevitably lead to further demands for concessions toward an ever-greater ideological purity. Something even darker and more malevolent is happening, however. The various radical leftist factions and special interest groups are rapidly coalescing into a global movement.

There is a link to an article ‘‘Purifying the World: What the New Radical Ideology Stands For’’ here:

It’s a long article and should have its own thread because this thread has drifted off topic

Got timed out.


Insistence by the liberals for the double standard.

Exaggerations and outright fabrications.

God is the very “glue” that holds all things together, that is, the whole order of the cosmos. When man begins to toy with God’s order, and furthermore reject the very One who is the Glue of that order, creation itself begins to come apart. As we take God out of society, chaos takes His place. The *value of life *is being replaced by the value of death. Hence, in our times we see the grave threat of war, terrorism, and regional conflicts; an increase in suicide, genocide, euthanasia, and infanticide; an increase in violence in our homes, schools, and streets. How odd it is that we tend to think of this as a normal part of our culture-something which would have shocked even the most lukewarm soul fifty years ago. It is said that if you throw a frog into boiling water, it will jump out. But if you slowly heat the water, it will remain in the pot and boil to death. We are beginning to boil, and many within the Church seem unaware…

…At World Youth Day in Denver, Colorado in 1993, the Holy Father further defined this fog:
Vast sectors of society are confused about what is right and what is wrong, and are at the mercy of those with the power to “create” opinion and impost it on others. The family especially is under attack. -POPE JOHN PAUL II, Homily, n.4, Cherry Creek State Park, World Youth Day, Denver, Colorado.

Our rejection of God and his moral laws has a direct effect on nature. Our oceans are dying, various land and sea animals are beginning to inexplicably disappear, bee and bird populations are diminishing, weather patterns are becoming more erratic, and sexually transmitted diseases, famine, heat waves, droughts, flooding, and wind, ice, and hail storms are ravaging countrysides and peoples, fron one extreme to the other, as well as more frequently. What we see in nature is a reflection and response to what is occurring in society, and more explicitly, in the hearts of men.

Well, during the song and dance, let’s hope someone notices this:

An appointed judge should be able to change the legislation written by elected officials?


And of course, this………


New video of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan praising an activist Israeli Supreme court judge as “my judicial hero” has Republican senators and conservative groups doubting administration claims that the former Clinton aide has an open mind and isn’t interested in changing the Constitution.

I just hate blanket statements. Throw in a ‘for instance’. Something which pertains to the thread, if you will.

Liberals control nearly everything? Are you talking politically here?


You gotta see this. Unbelievable.

Apparently she was a Democrat operative in the Clinton White House:


Let me guess…

You voted for Obama… and would do it again.
