"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened."
– Norman Thomas, American socialist
And we have another one to add to the Obama radical List, folks.
Elena Kagan, American Socialist.
There's just an endless source of these America changers.
Does Obama know ANYONE who isn't radically left of left?
The socialist Change-machine just gets worse everyday.
I read that about 5% of 'ambiguous' laws reach the Supreme Court for review.
Here is a taste of what Obama's society organizers think about ambiguity:
Obama's Regulatory "czar" Cass Sunstein:
"There is no reason to believe that in the face of statutory ambiguity, the meaning of federal law should be settled by the inclinations and predispositions of federal judges. The outcome should instead depend on the commitments and beliefs of the president and those who operate under him...and...The executive should usually be permitted to interpret (law) as it reasonably sees fit" (1)
Under Sunstein there would be no need for a Supreme Court to interpret law.
Now they know they can't get some of this Nut-case's regulations to stand up if their coming dictatorial regulations are shot down by The Supreme Court so the extreme tyranny deck continues to be stacked.
Kagen (who is also in Obama's health-care camp) believes in "Presidential control of administration, in critical respects (expanded dramatically during the Clinton years) making the regulatory activity of the executive branch agencies more and more an extension of the president's own policy and political agenda. She argued that an increased presidential role in regulation "both satisfies legal requirements and promotes the values of administrative accountability and effectiveness." (2)
In fact a large part of Kagan's Constitutional teachings at Chicago law School involved Presidential Law, Presidential Administration, Labor law and the very same ideological Sunstein Marbury Nudge: The Executive's Power to Say What the Law is.
Kagan and Sunstein, also co-authored an 18 page pamphlet together (3) on Remembering "TM" (Justice Thurgood Marshall), and know each other well from their days at Chicago's law School. I read that it was Kagan who got Obama his lecturing position there.
Peas of a Chicago pod.
Another factor putting Kagan at the top of Obama's 'change' agenda is that she echos the view that the Court’s primary role is to “show special solicitude” for people that a judge has empathy for.(4)
It was Senator Obama who feels, 'The role of a justice is to favor the weak over the strong. In the most difficult cases, the determining factor is not what the law in question says, or what the Constitution says. In those difficult cases,' " what matters is "what is in the judge's heart."(5)
Social Justice? Empathy? Ignoring the law? Casting aside the Constitution favoring class?
Sounds more like 'unequal justice'.
Kagan wrote in her Princeton thesis, ("To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900–1933”) “Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism’s glories than of socialism’s greatness. Conformity overrides dissent; the desire to conserve has overwhelmed the urge to alter. Such a state of affairs cries out for explanation.”
Socialism's greatness? WHERE has it ever worked? How's that wonderful socialism working out for you Greece?
These people Obama has gathered around him all speak the same altering Marxist language and yet, they, and their media counterparts, refuse to even admit who and what they are.
...Such a state of affairs cries out for explanation...
Kagan is cloaked in folksy distraction instead. She plays softball and poker - the kind of person you can have a beer with.
Nothing about Kagan's socialist beliefs on Obama's 'truth meter' IPod...
On the demise of historical socialism's greatness and a hand slap to bickering factions Kagan wrote:"... :( a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialism’s decline, still wish to change America … In unity lies their only hope."(6)
Kagan also wrote of hope that the future growth of liberalism would “be marked by American disillusionment with conservative programs and solutions, and that a new, revitalized, perhaps more leftist left will once again come to the fore.”(7)...note: numbered sources are in below comment area.
..."that a new, revitalized, perhaps more leftist left will once again come to the fore"...gee- I wonder what is left of left and who are the gatekeepers to be?
Well, the leftist left is here people and it's soldiers (as Kagan's radical MARXIST (8) brother calls himself) are uniting for power in every branch of our government to change America.
Have negative polarized labels like "Party of NO" succeeded in silencing resistance to this take over?
The question now is will the Republican Senators be the Party of NO DAMNED WAY! or give barely audible lip service and continue to allow our American foundation to be transformed by these radicals as they whine that they are in the minority and how difficult it will be to vet Kagan's beliefs because of her lack of legal decisions...and, of course, 'touchy' floor protocol on personal questions.
If the outnumbered Patriots had just shut up and gone home because things were difficult there would be no America today.
Here's the protocol. Do YOUR dam duty and Protect and Preserve the Constitution.
“We’re not grooming you to be Wall Street lawyers. We’re grooming you to change the world.” - Elena Kagan -2008 [John R. Kramer Outstanding Law Dean Award from Equal Justice Works]
Kagan memo: “[A] select panel convened by ACOG could identify no circumstances under which [the partial-birth] procedure … would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman.” This, of course, would be disaster — not the less so (in fact, the more so) because ACOG continues to oppose the legislation."
