Confirmed: Kagan's a Liberal (Suprise!)

Newly released memos from her days as a law clerk confirm what conservatives have suggested all along - that Elena Kagan is a political liberal whose views are outside of the mainstream in America. And they are a stark reminder for all Americans that elections have consequences.

Just when poll after poll confirms that Americans are becoming more conservative as well as more pro-life, we're faced with a potential lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court of someone who would likely use the power of the court to interpret and apply the Constitution in such a way as to move the country in the opposite direction.

Via CBS:

...while working as a law clerk to the late Justice Thurgood Marshall - made her positions clear on some of the nation's most contentious social issues.

The documents, buried in Marshall's papers in the Library of Congress, show Kagan standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the liberal left, at a time when the Rehnquist Supreme Court was moving to the conservative right... (READ MORE)

Speak Out on the Kagan Nomination Today!

In nominating Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, President Obama has proved yet again that he is focused on appointing judges who will bring liberal activism to the bench for decades to come.

We know that she supported banning military recruiters from college campuses because she opposes the ban on open homosexuality in the military. We know that she has argued that the government should be allowed to ban certain forms of political speech. And we know that she has been endorsed by pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage organizations.

Israel Faces its Most Hostile U.S. President

"The Wall Street Journal" had as its headline this morning: "Israel's Isolation Deepens." Is it any wonder when the president and his administration have taken each and every opportunity to raise up the Palestinian cause at the expense of our greatest ally in the Middle East. The "Journal" reported this morning that Israeli officials believe that the Obama administration's public criticism of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government "has been seen as a green light by some European nations to press Israel further."

What happened off of Gaza last Monday was an intentional provocation by a pack of radical Palestinians and their supporters on a flotilla of six ships including a U.S. passenger ship, the Challenger I, a ship probably filled with aging over-the-hill anti-Vietnam War protestors and other such leftists desperately seeking attention...

Military Chiefs at Odds with White House over Gays in the Military

It should come as no surprise that the Obama administration has moved forward in pushing Congress to overturn the existing ban on open homosexuality in the military despite the objections of leading generals and admirals. In fact, each of the heads of the services, who collectively comprise the Joint Chiefs of Staff, have opposed the plan.

Previously, Secretary of Defense Gates had put in place a review of military policy on the matter and its impact on military readiness, which will not be concluded until December. It was thought that Congress and the White House would wait until after the study was complete to think about making any changes.

ObamaCare Update: Yes, it's Getting Worse

It's beginning to seem like one could write a book (or at least fill a number of pages comparable to the length of the original bill) with reports of how ObamaCare doesn't do what Democrats said it would, how it does do what opponents said it would, and how it's going to result in other consequences that weren't predicted (which, itself, was predicted). Got it?

Well, here's the latest:

The true cost of ObamaCare (the details they left out)

Remember how a big part of Obama and the Democrats' sales job for their health care bill was that it would save money? Well, guess what. They were wrong... (READ MORE)
