It looks like the GLBT Community – who so ferociously supported Obama – is about to get their reward – a gay Supreme!
Elena Kagan has been nominated to fill the seat of retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. With very little paper trail, and never having been a judge, this looks like a flawed nomination on it’s face. But what else would we expect from such a flawed pResident?
So now the question will be is Ms. Kagan a highly intelligent, well-schooled, and well qualified impartial juror, [who ~ just happens ~ to be gay] deserving to sit for the next 35 years on our High Court? Or as some evidence suggests, – is she a militant agenda lesbian who will look at every case and every issue through her agenda perspective.
Will the US Senate have the courage to question and examine her fairly and thoroughly, or will they cave to the GLBT community and give her only a cursory exam. Certainly Vermont’s high-profile liberal Cheshire cat – Patrick Leahy – Chairman of the Judiciary Committee will be delighted to see her confirmed. Ranking Member Jeff Sessions will be under some pressure to examine her history of anti-military writings. Back when she was Dean of the über-liberal Harvard Law School [a position of enormous power and influence on campus], she led the campaign to remove military recruiters from campus because of DA/DT.
In an ideal world, Ms. Kagan’s sexuality should not be an issue. But her openly expressed opinions are. Will she be able to grasp and appreciate the real concern for “good order and discipline” – and keep her sexuality and personal preferences private and out of her decisions? OR is this nomination the prelude for troops prancing in the open, and for gays once again being tossed off the fantails of ships at night.
Certainly Obama is packing the Court with friends for the day that his lack of Natural Born Citizenship can no longer evade judicial scrutiny. And, . . .for the day that the appeal of his conviction for treason reaches the Supremes. Feisty days ahead.
