Elena Kagan confirmation hearings to begin June 28

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) announced Wednesday that the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court justice nominee Elena Kagan will begin Monday, June 28. The Associated Press reports that "the schedule should allow the hearings to be completed before senators go home for a weeklong break in early July," and then be able to vote before they adjourn for August recess.

At a hearing on Tuesday Leahy said, "this is a reasonable schedule that is in line with past practice."

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary committee, responded quickly in a statement suggesting the confirmation proceedings begin after the July 4th recess. "At this time, it remains to be seen whether the schedule set by the Chairman will be adequate to allow us to meet our important constitutional responsibility to thoroughly review Ms. Kagan's record on behalf of the American people."

Kagan's thesis lamenting the demise of socialism in the U.S. shows her early love affair with radicalism. Additionally, the fact that Obama, a U.S. hating Marxist, has selected her for the Supreme Court, demonstrates that she must still share Obama's goal with forcing socialism/Marxism on us.

The fact that Kagan lacks a "paper trail" and is "agreeable" just makes it easier for Obama and his comrades to fool people into believing that she is not dangerous.

It's is obvious, however, that if Kagan is nominated, she would do her best to help Obama transform the U.S. from a prosperous, capitalist, FREE country into another failed, poor, socialist, ENSLAVED country.

A socialist U.S. under their control is the "dream" (nightmare for the rest of us) that both Obama and Kagan share.

We hope our representatives are able to defend us preventing Obama from placing Kagan, another radical socialist, on our Supreme Court, where she can help Obama and his comrades destroy our country.
