WASHINGTON – There are many, many reasons to deny Elena Kagan confirmation for the U.S. Supreme Court, says Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND, who has waged a campaign to persuade the U.S. Senate.
But Farah wants Americans to think about just one that, he says, totally disqualifies her consideration as a serious American jurist.
“This woman, as president of her university, banned the U.S. military from recruiting on campus,” he reminds. “Just contemplate rewarding that kind of vehemently anti-American action with a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. Elena Kagan must be stopped.”
Farah is asking all of his constituents to join his “Stop Kagan Campaign”, which delivers personalized, individually addressed, anti-Kagan letters to all 100 U.S. senators by FedEx for only $24.95.
“It’s a phenomenal bargain,” says Farah. “It makes it easy for you to sound off on this historically bad nomination. It’s a small investment. And I am convinced that if enough Americans take advantage of it, Kagan will be stopped – even by this Senate.”
But time is short, Farah says. Senate confirmation hearings are underway. America is distracted by a floundering economy, a disastrous oil spill and a government that creates new crises on a daily basis.
Calling Kagan “an activist who wants to govern from the bench,” Farah says there’s a way to give senators a “spine transplant” and prepare them for the most contentious confirmation fight since Clarence Thomas.
“Kagan is a radical antimilitary and proabortion zealot,” said Farah. “This selection by Barack Obama reveals once again his extremist agenda of leaving America undefended, elevating alternative lifestyles to sainthood and exterminating the most innocent human life with reckless abandon and persecuting anyone who tried to stand in the way. In a nutshell, that’s who Elena Kagan is.”
The letter campaign is based on previously successful efforts in which nearly 10 million “pink slips” were delivered to members of Congress opposing nationalization of health care, cap-and-trade legislation, hate-crimes laws and other bills, as well as the current campaign to stop amnesty in the U.S. Senate.
The “stop Kagan” campaign allows any American citizen to generate 100 individually addressed letters to every U.S. senator, each including the name of the sender and all delivered by FedEx for the low price of just $24.95. That comes out to less than the cost of snail-mailing the 100 letters yourself.
The letter to the senators reads:
“In a few months, the American people will have a chance to speak at the polls again. Almost every analyst and every public-opinion survey suggests the electorate is angry about the direction of the country. I strongly urge you not to show contempt for the will of the people and the Constitution by confirming the Supreme Court nomination of Elena Kagan.
“Kagan is not what Americans want and she is not what the country needs.
“At a time when federal central control is strangling the American economy, she calls for more regulatory authority not just in Washington, but for the president himself.
“At a time when American security is facing internal and external threats and our nation is still engaged in two foreign wars simultaneously, she advocates banning military recruitment on campuses because of her compulsion to see open homosexual behavior flaunted in the ranks.
“At a time when Americans have been stripped of their ability to write their own laws protecting the lives of the unborn, she advocates the creation of task forces to investigate and prosecute peaceful pro-life activities.
“At a time when Americans are recognizing the unique blessings of their Constitution, she advocates the consideration of foreign laws in shaping Supreme Court rulings.
“For all of these reasons and more we will surely learn about in the days ahead, please reject the nomination of Elena Kagan.”
