Kagan’s “Kiss of Death”


By Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman

Liberty Counsel

The Washington Times called it Elena Kagan’s “kiss of death.”  The more you learn about her successful twisting of expert testimony on abortion and then waffling about it in hearings last week, the more incensed you will become about her nomination to the Supreme Court. Please read my urgent message below.  – Mat.

More than a decade ago, Elena Kagan manipulated expert medical evidence submitted to the Supreme Court. What she did played a key role in the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the ban on the horrendous partial-birth abortion procedure. She did it for political reasons while working for the Clinton administration.

The Washington Times says Kagan “may be more responsible than anyone for keeping partial-birth abortion legal for an extra decade.”  Pause for a moment to think about that.

In part because of Elena Kagan’s political activism, this horrific abortion procedure – which amounts to infanticide and culminates with a near full-term baby’s brains being sucked out so the skull will collapse – continued to be performed across this country.

Elena Kagan’s “handwritten notes” show that she personally re-wrote the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ (ACOG) official assessment of partial-birth abortion to better comport with her political views on abortion.

During her Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, Elena Kagan did everything in her power to avoid taking responsibility for manipulating ACOG’s expert testimony, but her defensiveness only spurred closer questioning.

Senator Orrin Hatch asked Kagan a very direct question: “Did you write that memo?” Kagan never actually admitted she wrote the memo but was finally forced to reluctantly acknowledge that, “the document is certainly in my handwriting.”

This hand-written document should be the “kiss of death” for Kagan’s confirmation!

The memo proves that she is a political activist who intentionally corrupted key expert evidence. And it proves that she holds radical pro-abortion political views that make it impossible for her to use the impartiality required of a Supreme Court Justice.

In the final analysis, Elena Kagan’s past actions show that she is a political operative who would use a seat on the Supreme Court to advance a radical political agenda.

++ Unleashing our powerful fax barrage on Monday.

As you know, Liberty Counsel is joining other pro-family groups in calling for a FULL INVESTIGATION of events that took place during Elena Kagan’s tenure in the Clinton White House.

We are also calling for a full review of discrepancies in her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, especially concerning her notes to President Clinton giving political advice about abortion cases being considered by the federal judiciary.

We believe this investigation needs to be completed BEFORE the full Senate takes up Kagan’s nomination.  If the pro-Kagan camp doesn’t accept this course of action, a filibuster should be enacted until the investigation is complete and all relevant documents receive proper review!

I am asking every Liberty Counsel team member to press Senators to examine ALL the evidence that may weigh upon Kagan’s qualification for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.

And the Senate MUST NOT BE RUSHED by the all-too-familiar Obama/Reid/Pelosi arm twisting.

We have included new language in our faxes calling for an investigation and review of all pertinent documents, including Kagan’s writings.  The fax barrage will begin when the Senate reconvenes this coming Monday.

Please go here to initiate your faxes to your two Senators and other key Senators:

http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=29683&CID=312&RID=25686122

If you prefer, we encourage you to send your own faxes. We have provided all the information you need to reach Senators here:

++Kagan’s radical political activism should disqualify her.

As I wrote to you earlier, Elena Kagan’s activities in the Clinton Administration should not be characterized as merely the actions of an ambitious young attorney whose zeal temporarily overrode her better judgment.

Rather, they appear to be calculated attempts to manipulate testimony by a seasoned lawyer who was at that time serving as counsel to the President of the United States.

If Kagan purposefully manipulated expert findings, then that was at the very least a disrespectful slap at the Court upon which she aspires to serve.  Some have said that her manipulation of expert testimony approaches the crime of evidence tampering – more than sufficient reason to call for Kagan’s removal from consideration.

The evidence clearly shows that Elena Kagan does NOT have the ability to separate her quest to implement a radical personal agenda from the sacred duty of impartially judging as a Supreme Court Justice.

And if Elena Kagan is seated, she would be in position to review the lawsuits against ObamaCare when they make their way to the Supreme Court.  That is totally unacceptable!

++ Stand with us in opposition to Elena Kagan’s confirmation.

Last week, Liberty Counsel supporters generated tens of thousands of citizen contacts to our United States Senators saying…

“FULLY INVESTIGATE ELENA KAGAN AND OPPOSE HER CONFIRMATION”

There is STILL TIME for all of us to make our voices heard by those on the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Senators uncommitted in their votes, and your own two Senators.  This is especially true now that Elena Kagan has waffled during testimony about her personal notes to President Clinton on partial-birth abortion.

Your faxes to the Senate will be delivered along with thousands of other citizens’ faxes as part of our massive FAX BARRAGE that resumes on July 12th.

Go here to schedule your targeted faxes:

http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=29685&CID=312&RID=25686122

++ The tide is turning.

Americans are getting wise to the true Elena Kagan. Many Senators have already declared their “no” vote on her nomination.

Kagan’s confirmation is far from being a “done deal,” contrary to what you hear in the mainstream media. We can still stop this dangerous nominee from being seated on the Supreme Court!

Please, increase your personal impact on this vital issue by taking advantage of our FAX BARRAGE and telling your Senators and other key Senators to deny confirmation to Elena Kagan.

Even if you have already sent faxes, you can add to the volume next week by ordering another set.  This battle warrants our very best efforts!

As I mentioned, we have provided sample letters for you – all you have to do is click on the link below to participate in our powerful FAX BARRAGE of the United States Senate. Also click here for a free seven-page White Paper on Elena Kagan’s legal and political philosophy:

    The Senators should examine the June 28 National Review story, and the Harvard law students’ blog, on Kagan’s decision to involve herself in the investigation of the Larry Tribe ghostwriting and plagiarism scandal despite her personal conflict of interest (she was a former Tribe ghostwriter and did a whitewash, imposing no punishment on Tribe).
