Who is Elena Kagan

Elena Kagan has synonymously disqualified herself from serving on the U.S. Supreme Court with her statement under oath that she does not believe in "natural inalienable rights" as documented in the Declaration. We have film.

This has got to be the most anti-American statement that I have ever encountered in my long, long lifetime. One cannot help but wonder just what Elena Kagan thought we just celebrated on July the 4th, what we commemorated, or what historical fact occurred on that date 234 years ago. The very bases for what America is, and stands for.

In all my years of observing hearings in Washington, I don't think I've ever been more stunned and disappointed by the testimony of a Supreme Court nominee than I was with Elena Kagan.
The statements by Kagan came in an exchange with Sen. Tom Coburn; R-Okla. Most of the press failed to cover her responses, which were as newsworthy as any she made during the hearings:

The Q and A between Sen. Coburn and Kagan

Coburn: Do you believe it is a fundamental, pre-existing right to have an arm to defend yourself?

Kagan: Senator Coburn, I very much appreciate how deeply important the right to bear arms is to millions and millions of Americans. And I accept Heller, which made clear that the Second Amendment conferred that right upon individuals, and not simply collectively.
Coburn: I'm asking you, Elena Kagan, do you personally believe there is a fundamental right in this area? Do you agree with Blackstone [in] the natural right of resistance and self-preservation, the right of having and using arms for self-preservation and defense? He didn't say that was a constitutional right. He said that's a natural right. And what I'm asking you is, do you agree with that?

Kagan: Senator Coburn, to be honest with you, I don't have a view of what are natural rights, independent of the Constitution. And my job as a justice will be to enforce and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States.
Coburn: So you wouldn't embrace what the Declaration of Independence says, that we have certain God-given, inalienable rights that aren't given in the Constitution that are ours, ours alone, and that a government doesn't give those to us?
Kagan: Senator Coburn, I believe that the Constitution is an extraordinary document, and I'm not saying I do not believe that there are rights pre-existing the Constitution and the laws. But my job as a justice is to enforce the Constitution and the laws.
Coburn: Well, I understand that. I'm not talking about as a justice. I'm talking about Elena Kagan. What do you believe? Are there inalienable rights for us? Do you believe that?
Kagan: Senator Coburn, I think that the question of what I believe as to what people's rights are outside the Constitution and the laws, that you should not want me to act in any way on the basis of such a belief.
Coburn: I would want you to always act on the basis of the belief of what our Declaration of Independence says.
Kagan: I think you should want me to act on the basis of law. And that is what I have upheld to do, if I'm fortunate enough to be confirmed, is to act on the basis of law, which is the Constitution and the statutes of the United States.

Watch video of Kagan’s statement

This woman apparently and obviously believes as Karl Marx does that our rights descend from our Government. The Constitution, and therefore the government, is there to protect our inalienable God-given human rights, not to define our rights, to restrict them, or to create them. She should really read the Ninth Amendment.
This is the woman, as president of her university, banned the U.S. military from recruiting on campus. Just contemplate rewarding that kind of vehemently anti-American action with a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. Elena Kagan must be stopped.
Kagan is an activist who wants to govern from the bench. If there is a way to give senators a "spine transplant it must be done now and prepare them for the most contentious confirmation fight since Clarence Thomas.
Kagan is a radical anti-American, antimilitary, Communist, and pro-abortion zealot. This is the perverted caliber of liberalism one should expect form the Obama regime. 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 of human life with reckless abandon and persecuting anyone who tries to stand in the way. In a nutshell, that's ‘who Elena Kagan is’.

This has got to be the single most important Supreme Court nomination in American history. ‘America’--- thank God --- has enjoyed a small majority of true American Constitutionalist who understand the bases of law the purpose and philosophy of the U.S. Constitution and Americanism, but this nomination will surly throw the equilibrium of the Republic into the trash of tyranny.

WorldNetDaily has an easy way for you to contact the entire Senate, check it out…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! American s 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."
