    kagan has similar beliefs as does sotomayor. Here is an example of sotomayors beliefs:
    sotomayor Senate testimony: "I understand the individual right fully that the Supreme Court recognized in Heller." And, "I understand how important the right to bear arms is to many, many Americans."

    sotomayor dissent urged that Heller be overruled and declared, "In sum, the Framers did not write the Second Amendment in order to protect a private right of armed self defense."

    Liberals like these 2 have no moral issues with saying 1 thing then doing the complete opposite.

    Boy do we need to continue to and put more pressure on the US Senate on the Kagan Nomination:

    Recieved today from one the notsodymanic duo.. You be the Judge...:

    Dear Mr. ricbak:
    Thank you for contacting me about the nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to fill the vacancy created on the United States Supreme Court by the retirement of Justice John Paul Stevens. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this very important matter.

    Article II of the Constitution gives the President the authority to nominate individuals to the Supreme Court and to other federal courts, and it gives the Senate the important responsibility of carefully evaluating judicial nominees and exercising independent judgment in deciding whether or not to confirm them. The Senateís constitutional obligation to advise and consent on the President's nominations to the federal judiciary is particularly important given that these are lifetime positions.

    Elena Kagan has served as Solicitor General in the Obama administration since March 2009 and is the first woman to hold that position. She also was the first woman to serve as the Dean of Harvard law school. In 1988, she served as a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.
    Supreme Court Justices make decisions that directly affect the lives of all Americans. The Senateís constitutional role to Ďadvise and consentí is very important, and I take this responsibility seriously. Currently, I am reviewing Solicitor General Elena Kaganís record and will closely follow her confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee before reaching a decision on her nomination.

    Thank you again for contacting me.

    Sincerely,
    Carl Levin

    Kagan Vote Expected Today! - Get On The Horn !


    Stop Kagan - Vote Expected TODAY July 20th


    ALERT: Lame Duck Sen. Arlen Specter past critic of Kagan who lost his primary bid says he will support the nomination of Kagan to the Supreme Court despite what he calls her "non-answers" to senators' questions during confirmation hearings.

    Specter voted last year against confirming Kagan to her current post as solicitor general. He was then a Republican, and has said he opposed her because she wouldn't answer questions about how she'd approach cases. Ignoring

    Dems continue to push to confirm Kagan while admitting that Kagan is an inexperienced academic ideologue on an extreme liberal quest to promote her liberal beliefs. Feinstein, D-CA said: "Frankly, I find this (lack of experience) refreshing." Telling Kagan, "I believe you are eminently confirmable."




    There has been much debate concerning Kagan's involvement in the Solicitor General's brief filed in the E-Verify case. Fourteen House Republicans wrote a letter to Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) saying "It has come to our attention that Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan played a key role in authorizing the brief." The representatives also stated that the Administration had "no legal basis" for the filing and claimed that Kagan played a "key role" in the decision.

    Kagan approved the filing of a brief before the Supreme Court asking that it strike down provisions of the Legal Arizona Worker's Act, which suspends or revokes business licenses of corporations which knowingly hire illegal immigrants, even though Federal law expressly prohibits such hiring. She did this even after the liberal 9th Circuit had upheld the law.

    Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ), questions Kagan's position on this issue involving his home state, "I'm deeply troubled by her decision as Solicitor General to urge the Supreme Court to review and strike down an Arizona law designed to prevent employers from hiring illegal aliens. The Ninth Circuit unanimously upheld the law because federal immigration law explicitly allows states to sanction employers through their business licensing regimes. I think there are legitimate questions about whether the brief authorized by Ms. Kagan - which flies in the face of the plain language of the law and urges the Supreme Court to strike these enforcement provisions down-was motivated by political influence at the White House and within the Department of Justice."
    Kyl also asked Ms. Kagan why the feds supported review when there was no conflict among the lower courts. Kagan responded that the federal government felt the issue was important because it was arising in a number of places around the country.
    Kagan a Liberal Open Borders Ideologue Pushing Obama's Agenda!
    We must not confirm Kagan, yet another under-qualified and inexperienced liberal to get on-the-job training. We do not need an inexperienced and unqualified Supreme Court Justice to be "serving" like Obama, whose ineptitude is wrecking the country. His chaotic prosecution of the war in Afghanistan, our intensifying border crisis with Mexico, and his paralysis and failure to react and lead in the Gulf Oil Spill that has destroyed vast areas of coastal marshes and the lives of people who have lived there for generations -- all demonstrate the terrible costs of putting an unqualified ideologue in a position of great power and authority. America cannot afford to do so with a lifetime SCOTUS appointment!

    Sen. Jon Kyl, R-AZ known for speaking the truth said Kagan's record is full of "warning signs" that she may be what he called a "results-oriented" justice -- Citing her liberal record as clerk for Justice Marshall, Kyl said many of her memos then "appeared to be based largely on her own liberal political views."

    "This kind of naked political judgment appears frequently throughout Kagan's work as a Supreme Court clerk," Kyl said.



    The direction of immigration enforcement may be decided by a Supreme Court that Kagan will rule on. Kagan has issued opinions on two separate cases which shed some light on how she has approached the immigration issue. Kagan’s approach to immigration cases appears to hold that illegal aliens — regardless of their status — are fully protected with citizens' rights by the U.S. Constitution.
    Help us mobilize common sense, patriotic Americans against this travesty!! The Obama administration's plan for mass Amnesty MUST BE STOPPED!

    News Alert: Senate Judiciary Committee approves Kagan nomination


    Reporting from Washington óElena Kagan, President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, won approval from the Senate Judiciary Committee on a nearly party-line vote Tuesday, her next to last hurdle before gaining a lifetime seat on the high court.

    The vote was 13-6, with RINO Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) joining the majority Democrats.


    If she is confirmed by the Senate as expected early in August, the nine-member court will have four Democratic appointees for the first time since 1971. And for the first time ever, three of the justices will be women, and none will be a Protestant.

    Elena Kagan Nomination Vote Action Alert

    Senate to Vote on Kagan by the End of the Week
    -- Time for a last round of calls

    Wednesday, August 4, 2010


    This is crunch time.

    The U.S. Senate will be voting on the Elena Kagan nomination by the end of the week, and in doing so, could replace an aging John Paul Stevens with a much younger -- and very radical -- anti-gun Justice.

    It would be better for the Supreme Court to begin its 2010-2011 session with only eight Justices, than for this radical nominee to be confirmed. You will remember that in the McDonald decision, respect for our Second Amendment rights was left hanging by just a thread, on a 5-4 vote.

    A vote to confirm Elena Kagan could put her on the Court for the next 30 years or more. As we have stated in the past, Kagan's record is abysmal:

    * While serving in the Clinton administration, Kagan drafted an executive order to ban certain semi-automatic firearms;

    * She suggested that the President could issue another executive order -- again, bypassing Congress -- to ban gun purchases without a police background check;

    * As a law clerk, she advised against the Supreme Court considering Sandidge v. United States in a case that questioned the constitutionality of the D.C. gun ban, writing that she was "not sympathetic" to the gun owner's Second Amendment claims; and

    * Kagan was also part of the Clinton team that pushed the firearms industry to include gun locks with all gun purchases and was in the Clinton administration when the President pushed legislation that would close down gun shows.

    Be encouraged. We are standing with the American people in opposition to Elena Kagan. Senators who disregard our voice will pay a tremendous price in November.

    Please make one final call to your two U.S. Senators and urge them to oppose the confirmation of this anti-gunner to the Supreme Court. (You can use the letter below to help direct your comments.) Finally, circulate this email to your pro-gun family and friends.

    CONTACT INFORMATION

    PHONE: You can call your Senators toll-free at 1-877-762-8762.

    E-MAIL: You can go to the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Senators the pre-written e-mail message below.


    ----- Pre-written letter -----


    Dear Senator:

    Please do NOT vote to confirm Elena Kagan.

    She is a radical who is WAY OUT OF THE AMERICAN MAINSTREAM. A CBS news poll reported on July 13 that only 21% of the American public thinks the Senate should confirm Elena Kagan.

    Another poll indicates that as many as one out every two voters would be "less likely" to vote for their incumbent Senator if he or she were to support Kagan.

    Please be assured that voters will remember this vote in November.

    It would be better for the Supreme Court to begin its 2010-2011 session with only eight Justices, than for this radical nominee to be confirmed.

    The American people do not want Elena Kagan. Again, please vote NO on the nominee's confirmation.

    Sincerely,
    your name here

    Gun control does NOT disarm criminals, it disarms Joe Citizen.
    Which only makes it safer for criminals.

    Gun Owners Of America - Hold Senators Feet To Fire For Kagan Votes

    U.S. Senate Confirms Anti-gun Radical to the Supreme Court
    -- Time to help GOA hold the turncoats accountable

    http://gunowners.org

    Thursday, August 5, 2010


    "After reviewing Ms. Kagan's record and testimony at her confirmation hearing, the GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA concluded that, 'The available evidence portrays her as a forceful advocate of restrictive gun laws and driven by political considerations rather than rule of law.'" -- Sen. John Thune (R-SD), August 5, 2010

    ON THE FLOOR OF THE SENATE TODAY

    Senator Thune quoted GOA accurately. Elena Kagan is going to be a disaster on the Supreme Court.

    Our gun rights are hanging by a thread. Prior to the vote in the U.S. Senate today, Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama sounded the alarm: "Most Americans are totally unaware [that] the Second Amendment hangs by a mere thread [by] two 5-4 decisions recently...."

    He was referring, of course, to the two gun-related decisions over the past couple of years where the Supreme Court narrowly ruled in favor of gun rights.

    With this in mind, several Senators spent almost an hour today talking exclusively about the Second Amendment, its importance to all Americans across the country, and the danger that President Obama's most recent pick to the U.S. Supreme Court poses to our gun rights.

    Sadly, the Senate today voted 63-37 to confirm Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court. While this is disappointing, you need to realize that we got more votes against Kagan than we have ever gotten against a Supreme Court Justice that we've opposed -- more than we garnered against Justices Sotomayor or Ginsburg. (Imagine, Justice Gingsburg only received three negative votes!)

    Today, we gained tremendous ground. There were Senators who voted against Kagan today who had NEVER before voted against a Supreme Court Justice. And come this November, we plan to gain even more ground when a new batch of candidates take their seats in the U.S. Senate... when we will probably be able to filibuster (and defeat) any future U.S. Supreme Court Justice that President Obama nominates.

    So thank you for all your help in fighting this nominee. Now, it is time for us to shift into high gear and hold the turncoats in Congress accountable. But more on that -- and on today's vote -- below.

    STAND WITH GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA

    While today's loss on the Kagan nomination was disappointing, don't forget that we won a VERY KEY battle last week against legislation to squelch our voice 60 days prior to a general election -- legislation known as the DISCLOSE Act.

    This victory means that we will be able to hold accountable those Senators who stabbed gun owners in the back and voted for Elena Kagan today -- and we'll be able to hold them accountable all the way up to Election Day.

    So gun owners need to stay engaged in the battle to retain and reclaim our rights. Even though Congress will be out of session this month, you can help us INCREASE our voice in Congress -- and INCREASE our ability to reach more gun owners -- by renewing your membership with GOA and encouraging others to do the same.

    You can go to Join GOA Online With our Secure Online Membership form. and join Gun Owners of America for the cost of a box of ammunition.

    As you already know, GOA will NOT be compromising your rights. We will not compromise on your Second Amendment freedoms... nor will we compromise on your First Amendment freedoms which are necessary to defend those liberties.

    During debate over the DISCLOSE Act last month, Senator Mitch McConnell praised GOA's uncompromising approach on the floor of the Senate when he said that the legislation was "not about the Democrats' affinity for the Second Amendment. If it were, they would have carved out an exception for the Gun Owners of America as well. As it is, the GOA vehemently opposes this bill. Why? Because they know it restricts First Amendment rights."

    We only have a little less than three months before the election. We need you now more than ever! Please go to Join GOA Online With our Secure Online Membership form. and renew today.

    HOLD YOUR SENATORS' FEET TO THE FIRE

    Many of you have Senators who pride themselves as being independent thinkers. They claim they are "Blue Dog" Democrats who support the Second Amendment.

    But guess what: Virtually every single Blue Dog voted IN FAVOR of Kagan today. To see how your Senators voted, please go to: U.S. Senate: Legislation & Records Home > Votes > Roll Call Vote

    Senators Harry Reid of Nevada, Jim Webb of Virginia, Max Baucus and John Tester of Montana, and many more... all the Blue Dogs voted for Elena Kagan, with the exception of Ben Nelson of Nebraska.

    You need to realize: These so-called Blue Dogs can't claim they didn't know Kagan's record on gun control. Nor can Lindsay Graham of South Carolina and the other four Republicans who voted for Kagan. They can't claim that Kagan's record is silent on the gun issue. They can't claim she might support gun owner rights in the future.

    Senator after Senator sounded the alarm on the floor of the Senate. Just take a look at what a dozen Senators had to say about Elena Kagan's views on Second Amendment rights:

    * Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL): "Ms. Kagan's record regarding the Second Amendment leaves little doubt that she will be hostile to the rights of law-abiding citizens to own and possess firearms."

    * Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA): "Solicitor General Kagan's record clearly shows she is a supporter of restrictive gun laws and has worked on numerous initiatives to undercut Second Amendment fundamental rights."

    * Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL): "Ms. Kagan has spent her career implementing antigun initiatives and evidence of her antagonistic attitude towards the Second Amendment can be found from the beginning of her legal career."

    * Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT): "Ms. Kagan also worked in the Clinton administration to weaken and limit other individual rights such as the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. In her hearing, Ms. Kagan refused to acknowledge any real limits on the Federal Government's power, which the Supreme Court has already expanded far beyond anything America's Founders intended, to regulate everything imaginable in the name of interstate commerce."

    * Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA): "Documents made available from the Clinton Library show she was a key player in that administration's gun control efforts. She was a key advocate for multiple gun control proposals and even authored multiple Executive Orders that placed restrictions on gun owner rights."

    * Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS): "General Kagan's prior work suggests that she would not protect an individual's constitutional right to bear arms. As a policy advisor to President Clinton, Kagan promoted several gun control proposals, including background checks for all gun purchases in the secondary market, a gun tracing initiative, and giving law enforcement the ability to retain background check information from lawful gun sales. She also drafted executive orders to restrict the importation of semiautomatic rifles and to require all Federal law enforcement officers to install locks on their weapons."

    * Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX): "I was also troubled by her testimony with regard to the Second Amendment -- the right to keep and bear arms. She did say the recent decisions in Heller and McDonald are 'settled law,' but I worry that her interpretation of settled law means until there are five new Justices who take a look at that settled law and just decide to change it.... Last year, [Justice Sonia Sotomayor] testified that Heller was settled law. But last month, she joined in a dissenting opinion in McDonald urging it be overturned, saying she did not believe the Second Amendment conferred a fundamental individual right to keep and bear arms."

    * Sen. George LeMieux (R-FL): "I am also concerned about Solicitor General Kagan's views on the right to bear arms enumerated in the Second Amendment. I think she has too little regard for some of our Constitution's most fundamental protections. As a law clerk, she was dismissive of the Second Amendment, saying she was not sympathetic to the amendment."

    * Sen. Mike Crapo (R-ID): "I am convinced [Kagan] does not believe the Second Amendment reserves to all Americans a strong and broad right to bear arms.... Countless law-abiding Americans were denied their constitutional rights to keep and bear arms for way too long. It is imperative that the next Supreme Court Justice fully understand and accept and support these rights. I am not convinced that Ms. Kagan does, and that causes me great concern."

    * Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX): "[I have] serious concerns about her Second Amendment views and her correlating judicial record on the Second Circuit Court."

    * Sen. John Ensign (R-NV): "When I had the opportunity to ask Ms. Kagan about her views on the Founders' intent of the Second Amendment, she informed me that although she had read much analysis regarding the Second Amendment, she had never studied its history or origin. Certainly, this statement was surprising to me, especially given her documented history of hostility toward the Second Amendment."

    * Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK): "The conclusion I draw from all this is that Ms. Kagan is, at best, uninterested in the Second Amendment at this point in her career. At worst, she is unsympathetic to the millions of Americans who, similar to this Senator, believe the Second Amendment is one of the most important of our constitutional liberties."

    These statements are just the tip of the iceberg.

    Senators who voted for Elena Kagan cannot claim ignorance. They voted anti-gun, and we need to let them know that we, the American people, are coming to take back our government on Election Day.

    They need to hear over and over again that "we will remember in November."
