Elena Kagan: Dangerous to America
Barack Obama's nominee for Solicitor General, Elena Kagan, is dangerous to America. She was the radical attorney who fought in the federal courts against the legislation introduced by American hero and now deceased Congressman Jerry Solomon, a Korean War veteran, and signed into law by a Democrat president, Bill Clinton, to allow military recruiters to meet with students and to allow the Reserved Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) on campuses around the country.
All 9 members of the United States Supreme Court, including the four left-wingers on the court, disagreed with Elena Kagan's arguments against Solomon's law. The court ruled constitutional the law which stated that schools could refuse military recruiters and the ROTC program on their campuses, but then they would be denied federal funds. Yet, that choice was not good enough for Kagan and she went on her crusade against the military.
During a time in history when America is still in two major wars in the Mideast, Obama and his appointees cannot put American military in a weakened position by putting obstacles before military recruiters on high school and college campuses. Additionally, with her extreme left-wing viewpoints, it is extremely doubtful that Kagan will fulfill the duties of the United States Solicitor General; that is to defend the United States Constitution and all federal laws before the United States Supreme Court.
Elena Kagan, who, incredibly, is the dean of the Harvard Law School -- if she is confirmed by the Senate -- with her radical anti-military viewpoints, is in no position to defend the Solomon law in the federal court system or any other law protecting the United States military and the American people. Many analysts believe that if the Senate confirms Kagan, she will immediately be amongst the short list for Obama's first Supreme Court nomination. Now that, would be extremely dangerous to America.
The majority of Republican Senators have capitulated to Barack Obama on virtually every one of his questionable nominations -- and there have been many -- except for former Senator Tom Daschle, nominated to be Health and Human Services Secretary, who was forced to ask to have his nomination withdrawn today.
If the Republican Senators cannot muster enough courage to oppose this irresponsible nomination, then they do not deserve to control the United States Senate any time soon.
