Kagan's Disdain For Constitutional Law
by Phil Boehmke - May 30th, 2010 - American Thinker
The question of Ms. Kagan’s respect for the Constitution as the fundamental law of our Republic may be illustrated by one [of] the decisions she made as Dean of Harvard Law School. CNSNews.com reports.It is frightening. This person, like Obama, sees herself as destroying the Constitution to come up with something better. Better in her mind.
As dean, Kagan won approval from the faculty in 2006 to make major changes to the Harvard Law's curriculum.
"My understanding is that she instituted three new courses to the required curriculum and, in so doing, got rid of a requirement to take constitutional law," Robert Alt, senior legal fellow and deputy director of the Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at the Heritage Foundation, told CNSNews.com.
"Currently at Harvard, constitutional law is not required for first-year law students, or even for graduation," Alt added.
It is a frightening prospect that someone who feels that constitutional law is not important enough as to be a required course of study for the prospective lawyers in her charge, should be seated on the Supreme Court where her influence would be felt for decades to come. As Mr. Obama continues to remake our Republic to suit his socialist agenda he understands the crucial importance of having like minded individuals on the high court to fend off potential legal challenges.
She will never live up to her pledge to defend that which most Americans believe is the basis of our social contract, our Constitution. It is frightening that this woman desires a position whose oath of office she has campaigned to violate.
Foreign Law: Coming Soon
To A Supreme Court Near You
by Ben Johnson - May 24th, 2010 - Citizen Reporter
This point was driven home by the Supreme Court’s decision last Monday in Graham v. Florida, which cited foreign law to strike down sentencing guidelines used by 37 states, the District of Columbia, and the federal government. Justice Kennedy wrote the majority opinion joined by Ginsburg, Stevens, Breyer, and Sotomayor. [the four justices in the global socialist cabal]Once again the global socialist Anthony Kennedy proves that he is a split the baby, America hating, master of insane rulings. He is on a quest to maintain for himself the prestige of being the swing vote. His massive ego is driven by the need to be powerful. Kennedy has found his niche in life by proving again and again, he has no legal premise to base his rulings on other than that his ego must be placated. He will sell his soul to either legal side in an issue for the prestige of writing the decision.
As her record proves, Elena Kagan would accelerate the trend of using foreign law to interpret the U.S. Constitution.
Victims' Families Angry
Over Vanessa Coleman's
by Emily Stroud - May 13th, 2010 - WBIR TV
Vanessa Coleman escaped the death penalty and life in prison. But a jury convicted her Thursday on 17 counts in a kidnapping, rape, and murder case.There is no justice in America. The court's are a joke.
The jury found Coleman not guilty of all of the counts related to victim Chris Newsom. Testimony at trial alleged she never saw Newsom.
The 17 convictions all relate to victim Channon Christian. The jury found Coleman facilitated her murder, rape, kidnapping, and theft of property.
Reading the lengthy verdict took almost an hour Thursday afternoon.
Vanessa Coleman's parents, Linda and Greg Coleman, intertwined their arms, held hands, and cried.
Coleman herself smiled at times.
"She was getting away with murder, she was pretty happy," Channon Christian's mother Deena Christian said. "But that doesn't make us happy about it."
A mob of black's perpetrated one of the most gruesome and horrible crimes in our nation's history against this white couple, and only one of the defendants is getting the justice they deserve. It was brutal. As an example, Channon, while still alive, had bleach poured down her throat to purge the DNA evidence left by the gang of black men who forced her to repeatedly give them oral sex. This was one of the least gruesome of the pains inflicted on this poor young woman. It was savage and brutal. Finally she was placed in a garbage bag alive and forced to die of suffocation, alone and afraid. What was done to her boyfriend Chris is beyond the hideous acts performed by any sexual sadists of the last 40 years. Yet the court system bent over backwards to give the defendants every conceivable break and treat them just like your standard everyday minor criminals. The victims were ignored. Their torture was ignored.
This was a crime of racial hatred by a black mob fueled by racist rage beyond belief. The courts agreed with the perpetrators and treated it as if the two victims were the white establishment and deserved what they got. This is a joke. This is an outrage. Justice was not served. In the corrupt courts of America today, it rarely is.
DNA Test Clears American Musician After 28 Years In Jail For Rape
by Giles Whittell - May 8th, 2010 - Times Online
“You’re going to have to bear with me,” the judge said. “I know you’re anxious.”Several things about this article caught my eye. One is the long title. You almost don't have to read the article after you read the title. Two is the theme of the article, that only blacks experience injustice and go to jail. Three is the irony. The system that spends so much energy chasing perfect justice is more guilty than most of dispensing injustice.
For a man wrongly convicted of rape almost 30 years ago, Raymond Towler did not look anxious. Perhaps it was because a few more minutes in custody made little difference after so long. Perhaps it was because he had a reasonable idea of what Judge Eileen Gallagher was about to say.
How does a system that frees killers for an accidental mis-statement of the Miranda warning to a murderer who has been arrested a dozen times, heard it again and again and cannot possibly be in doubt as to his so-called "rights", keep accepting non-sensible "identifications" that the rest of the world has long recognized are incompetent?
Might I suggest that it is because our progressive judges don't care a whit for justice but are in search of greater judicial power?
