KAGAN: ANOTHER RADICAL MASQUERADING AS A MODERATE

While President Barack Obama’s sycophants within the mainstream media are attempting to paint the President’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, Elena Kagan, as a moderate, it’s the blogosphere and talk radio that are exposing her radical politics which are more akin to those of Obama than those of the Founding Fathers.
For example, during the Bush Administration’s battle against radical Islamic terrorists, Kagan said the tactics being used to protect Americans resembled those of a Third-World banana republic.
She also accused lawmakers, who wished to limit the reach of the Supreme Court in the Executive Branch’s warfighting power, of being “fundamentally lawless.”
While Kagan never served as a judge in any court, her opponents believe there are other events in her background that require review by the U.S. Senate during her confirmation.
As the Dean of the Harvard School of Law, Kagan barred military recruiters from campus during a time of war, because of the Clinton Administration’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy regarding homosexuals in the military. Ironically, she did not turn down a position in the Clinton Administration.
