Biden: Kagan Does Not Have An Anti-Military Bias

May 14, 2010 by  

Biden: Kagan does not have an anti-military bias Vice President Joe Biden defended the administration’s latest Supreme Court Justice nominee on Tuesday, telling ABC’s Good Morning America that Elena Kagan does not have an anti-military bias.

Conservative leaders are heavily criticizing Kagan for the decision that she made as the dean of Harvard Law School to ban military recruitment on campus due to her condemnation of the "don’t ask, don’t tell" policy, which prevents openly gay individuals from serving in the Armed Forces.

"She has taken very few policy positions, and the one policy position that she took in favor of gay rights when she was dean of the Harvard Law School, directly contrary to congressional law … troubled many," Senator Jon Kyl, (R-Ariz.) told Fox News.

Meanwhile, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said on Good Morning America that Kagan will be forced to answer questions related to her controversial decision as well as her lack of practical experience with the law.

In response, Biden noted examples of other successful Supreme Court justices who had minimal judicial experience.

"She is Main Street," he added. "This is a woman who has lived in the real world."

    And we all know how perceptive Ole Joe is. For a laugh or two, do a you tube search for Joe Biden drunk.

  • Allan

    The decision to ban military recruiting because of the armed forces don’t ask don’t tell policy is very similar to schools banning the Boy Scouts. Both show a preference for political correctness over the larger good these organizations do. To me, this is not a good trait in a judge at any level, and suggests she would legislate from the bench.

    • JeffH

      Allan and I thought judges were supposed to make rulings based on law and not rulings based on bias…I think Kagan is biased and Don’t know Joe is an VP comedian.

      • denniso

        Law?? Doesn’t the law say everyone has equal rights? Can you try to figure it out?

        • http://naver samurai

          Have you earned the right to be called an American? Can you figure that out?

            JeffH,
            At least with him we have comedy relief!! See, even dennislow serves a purpose!!!

        • JC

          “Equal” yes that’s right.
          And that’s why we’re sick to death of loud special interest groups shoving their personal agendas down our throats.
          For example it’s called the “BOY Scouts” for a reason. No girls allowed. They have the right to form the “GIRL Scouts” no boys allowed…and that’s what “equal” means.

          • timr

            The Boy Scouts AND the girl Scouts are just “Cults” anyway….

          • http://?? Joe H.

            timr,
            WTF???? Both of my daughters were girl scouts and I was a boyscout! They are no more cults than the protestant, catholic, assembly of god, pentecostal churches or any of the others! They areorganizations that teach kids to be good adults and achievers! What, were you not able to join so you are mad at them??

          • Claire

            timr–You really are nuts. My son was a Boy Scout. And he grew up to be a good, decent young man. Maybe you should have been in the Boy Scouts, it may have taught you some respect.

    Plugs Biden’s lips are moving then you know, he can not be doing rational thinking. His feet are heading to his mouth, if Kagan is Main Street, she will be to the USA, like a high priced street walker. Trolling for Washington politians, as her eleit muslim pimp would now have two workers keeping every socialist plan going his way and knocking dowb road blocks set up in the Constitution. She has no experience, not evem a traffic court cop, or an ordinary experience defending a client in court of law. But a lot of socialist theories, and proven dislike of the military. At an eleitist college of a proven liberal design.She has a close personal relationship to Onumnut and beleives as he does.

  • Kirk

    We all know Joe biden to be anopen mouth insert foot type so anything he says can be taken with a grain of salt–whoos cann’t take salt no more–

  • bob peters

    Joe biden is either stupid or he’s a socialist pig like his bosses.. Kagan is another commie plant being inserted by Obama…Americans have to stand up and confront these pigs…

    • denniso

      Another fine and deep comment from another Limbaugh crackpot….

      • http://?? Joe H.

        and we now have a bit of comedy relief from dennislow!!!

      • http://naver samurai

        At least Rush is an expert in his field. Can we say the same about Biden?

        • denniso

          Limbaugh is an expert in his field?? What field is that? He blabs on the radio for big money…he’s clever at twisting the facts and lying
          through his teeth as well as spreading hate and vile…some ‘field’.
          It’s sad that he’s got kids like you fooled just like most of the old codger retirees here who have nothing better to do than follow Limbaugh like blind sheep.

          • http://naver samurai

            Actually, I haven’t listened to him for awhile. But I know that many people on talk radio make valid points that the libs just can’t answer. If you could answer some of them without a liberal slant to it, your postings would be more believeable.

          • Palin12

            denniso, you spread just as much vile and hatred as you claim rush does.

          • denniso

            Now listen please, it isn’t rocket science. Limbaugh demeans and demonizes people for the political views, not because they have called him names or questioned his intelligence. He manufactures hate and misinformation and outright lies about people or policies.

            When he or people here spread lies and call others derogatory names, including our president, I call them on it, and will label the name calling and lies for what they are…childish, idiotic,
            dumb,moronic,etc. If limbaugh and those here who act like him want to be treated like thinking adults then they can stop behaving like little bullies on the playground shouting curses and bad names. Then we could discuss issues like adults, couldn’t we?

      • http://naver samurai

        No. We think that “Osama” should just pack his things, turn in a letter of resignation, and just go somewhere outside of this country. I hear Iraq is nice this time of year.

  • WarriorH

    “A Woman that has lived in the real world” vs. What? Is joey suggesting Harvard and U of C are the real world? Who are the candidates from the fake world? Oh, I get it, she brings “real life” experiences to the job. Stupid me! She’s just another everyday common sense hard working american.

    • Joe

      just curious if you can name any member of the Supreme Court that didn’t graduate from an Ivy? Oh and by the way graduating from an ivy dosen’t make you smart. Your hero on the right George “W” Bush graduate from Yale and Harvard. I guess that must make him another commie,lefty,pinko socialist.

    Can anyone really believe anything Joe Biden says? If he said it I would bet my last dollar its a lie and thats no big Fu—ng deal.

  • Al Sieber

    Wait until they try and take on the 2nd amendment later this year. Kagan is anti gun. the supreme court judges think they can just interpert the constitution any which way they want, because it serves their purpose.

  • s c

    Kagan doesn’t have to concern herself with being anti-military. What matters is that she is ANTI-AMERICAN. Chalk up another LOSER for Obummer.
    She sees the Constitution as a “living” document that can be watered-down whenever it’s “necessary.”
    Kagan, like all other theoreticians, lives in a vacuum. She is an example of what happens when people trade facts for emotions. She is a willing puppet for social engineers and useful idiots. Lenin and Marx are her gods, and Obummer is her handler. She, like Obubba, will destroy America at ANY cost.
    Obummer and his flunkies need another pc storm trooper at the Supreme Court. If she wants to make a difference, let her move to Cuba or Iran.

    • denniso

      Kagan is anti american because she thinks the constitution should be interpreted w/ a modern view? The constitution is not the Bible, which some think was written w/ divine intervention and is therefore
      immutable. The constitution was written by white,slaveholding men, not by some god. It was written 230 yrs ago and has been ammended many times…it is subject to a modern interpretation since the smart
      men back then had no clue what the future would hold. If you don’t want a living constitution then you have to get rid of all ammendents,including the women’s right to vote.

      • http://naver samurai

        Dude you must have had a liberal teacher in your history class. Remember, not all our founding fathers had slaves. John Adams, Ben Franklin, James Madison, etc., never owned slaves. I think you should study more before posting on line.

        • denniso

          Some of the more prominent ‘founders’ did have slaves and never set them free…Jefferson, for example.

          • http://naver samurai

            If you read your history about Jefferson, you’ll read that he had to get rid of his slaves due to a massive debt he brought upon himself. He only kept one slave, some female that doesn’t mention her name. Not all of our founding fathers were old either. You’re just PO’ed because people want to get back to the ways of our christian founding fathers and not the ways of the spineless fool libs in office.

          • denniso

            I think Jefferson died w/ more than one slave left…I do know that he didn’t free his mistress Sally Hennings upon his death…he was a bright man but also flawed like the rest of them and all men.

      • JC

        Screw her and her “Modern View”. The Constitution came pre wrapped with centuries of wisdom inside. It is timeless and has already been interpreted into the joke that is now our so called government.
        What we need is a return to the Constitution and a “strict” adherence to it’s original intent.

        • http://naver samurai

          100% agree!

          • denniso

            One of your probable heros who luckily was blocked from an appointment by Reagan, Robert Bork, who called himself an originalist,thought that the constitution allowed for a poll tax on everyone who votes. We had had a poll tax decades ago w/ the purpose being that it would keep poor and black citizens from voting because they couldn’t afford to pay it. Very un American, wouldn’t you say?
            Now that’s from a supposedly literal interpretor of the constitution…is that what you mean by your timeless and wrapped in centuries of wisdom constitution??

          • http://naver samurai

            I don’t know too much about Bork, I’ll give you that. But he wouldn’t be as bad as the terrorist in the White House now. I also know what a poll tax is or was, but that isn’t the ways of today. Now we have a president that sends thugs from the SEIU and other unions to intimidate people into not voting. Not the same thing I know, but it tends to be the more evil of the two wouldn’t you think?

      • timr

        Amen Denniso………ALL of our Founders were racist………yet, we want to pick Judges that uphold the laws that didn’t allow Blacks or women to vote……….Too many right-wingers treat the Constitution like they do the Bible……….Didn’t the Bible condone keeping slaves……???……….YES, it did….

You are as stupid as the POTUSINO thinking we the people don’t have enough sense to read and understand the English language. We all know that Kagan is against the Military and you with a son that has completed a tour in combat should know better and be against such a person. But I forget, you are humbled that Obama has put you in the co-pilots seat and you owe him. Grow some gonads and stop the puppet act. We may need you to take over in the event of impeachment and believe me, you are no match for the American People

We do not need yet another Manhattan-raised/Ivy League elitist who thinks that civilization ends at the Appalachian Mountains and the rest of the country is filled with mouth-breathing hicks that the elite “Vanguard” need to take care of with Big Government.

  • Brasmnky in Florida

    With Ms. Kagan, we find ourselves on a precipice. The liberals have legislated from the bench for decades. Ms. Kagan may, thankfully replace another liberal. Some problems with her are: #1 she has never served as a judge. #2 she has never in her career worked in the real world; she has worked in the psuedo-world of academia. As so eloquently stated in Ghost Busters, “in the real world they expect results”. #3 Like 2 others on the supreme bench, she is east-coast-upper-crust-liberal. She has never cooked for a family of 20, nor made preparations therefore without a caterer, she has never loaded hay bales on a truck with her husband because “it has to be done”, or worked 2 jobs to make ends meet.
    The unseen forces behind Obama have planned well. If he can put enough liberals on the bench, and create enough czars to run things, our constitution will be over thrown and we will be returned to a monarchy with 10 to 15% of society being princes and lords over us, the masses.

    She will be there for one reason and that is to forward the homosexual agenda. Just like at Harvard, she was on the homosexual side of the fence.

Obie wants to give his legacy going after he is booted out. REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER

    • Claire

      JIm– Obama put in Sotomayor and now Kagan–the gays and the Hispanics should be happy. There is a “reason” for everything Obama does. He thinks he is covering his butt regarding the people he appoints. It appears Obama is trying to “please” all cultures, etc.?
      Hispanics and Gays do not bother me, it is the principle of what Obama is doing. I can see right through him. Is he trying to keep everybody happy or himself happy? It boils down to votes.

      • denniso

        Claire, you’re listening to these people too much. Homosexual agenda? What the hell is that? Equal rights for gays?
        Why can’t the supreme court have justices who represent real people? Hispanics have never had representation on the court before, and as far as we know gays haven’t either…unless Roberts,Scalia,Thomas or Alito are closeted gays.
        The court for 200 years was made up of only white men…what’s wrong w/ a court that reflects the diversity of the country? Nothing… Not to mention, no conservatives seem troubled by the rightwing Thomas on there as a token black.

          I don’t care about the person’s race, just whether they will do their job and uphold the constitution. “Osama’s healthcare is unconstitutional, so why didn’t they do their job and claim it to be unconstitutional? Our judiciary is so corrupted by relying on the will of political parties and not the law or constitution.

            samurai–You are 100% correct.

        • Claire

          denniso–Re-read my post. I said that the gays and Hispanics do not bother me. I have no problem with diversity in the Supreme Court. However, I do have a problem since all of them have been placed/chosen by both parties with only one thing in mind–for the Supreme Court to rule in their behalf on certain situations. I prefer a totally non-biased Supreme Court that will judge with fairness and with the thought of well-being for the American people and America.

          • http://naver samurai

            Thanks Claire! I’m glad that there are people like you on these postings. If it were just a bunch of liberal trash, that battle would never end! I hope to keep seeing you on these postings. For God and country, Claire. For God and country.

          • denniso

            Claire, of course we want justices to interpret the cases and constitution fairly and independently…what we’ve had for 99% of the life of the Court is a block of white rich males making decisions for a country made up of much more than white males. Some better than others and some w/ the ability to include the diversity of the country and experiences of different people and groups…it’s progress
            that we’re finally getting more varied people w/ more perspectives on life.

          • Claire

            denniso–sorry, I don’t want judges that lean to the left or lean to the right. They should hold themselves above any party affiliation.

          • denniso

            Claire…there’s almost no such thing as a person exactly in the middle between left and right, Dem and Repub. And, once one side appoints people to their liking then the war is on to match w/ appointees from the other side. We all have political and philosophical views and beliefs…that’s what comes w/ being human, and we all have our views on how the gov’t should operate. Also, the constitution is not carved in stone w/ everything to be done spelled out perfectly. Part of the reason it is open to some interpretation is also because the writers couldn’t possibly imagine every eventuality for the future.
            So, like it or not, we have a battle going on for the control of Gov’t. When Bush appointed Roberts and Alito he didn’t pick middle of the road men…they both are very rightwing and have their own definite views on the law. We now have to counter them to get some balance on the court. If one looks at most of the rulings for the past 10 yrs,it’s quite clear that we have a rightwing court. The recent ruling that says that corporations are entitled to the same right of free speech is an example…how can a corporation be treated as a person?

          • Claire

            denniso–Okay, I don’t agree with the recent ruling on corporations either. It is a bunch of crap. The rest of my beliefs about the Supreme Court stay the same.

          • denniso

            Claire…but that’s an example of how the different parties think and
            view the world differently. Most Republicans,especially the politicians, support corporations being given the same rights as we real people. Most Dems are opposed to it. Why the difference? Because the Repub party is mostly the party of business and hence corporations, so they support almost any policy or Court position that favors business. Dems have less support from business in general and have more varied and diverse support and think there is more to life and the country then money and business.

            The same thing applies to Court appointees or judges in general. They
            each have their own philosophical and political views that shape these sort of issues. It doesn’t mean they lean left or right,only that their views fall within certain borders. That’s also why we have 2 different parties.

          The ease with which some comments are cast understate the merits of any discussion. A “living Constitution”. My wife once bought a ‘living bra..and could not figure out what to feed it’. An old joke! To cite the number of glaring examples cited in this discussion, referencing “the old white guys that wrote the Constitution and owned slaves” is beyond the pale of reason spoken by persons of dubious acedemic exposure. This country is over 400 years old by any one that has the ability to read, calculate and reason. This Country as the United States of America born in 1775 and adopted, ratified 16 years later, in 1789, wasn’t written by a group of old white guys. The people that established this country recognized, understood history and staked their fate and fortunes on a grand experiment, namely a gift to generations that would follow. Liberty, freedom of choice, responsibility to one another and protection of the Republic and the Constitution to ensure that there was to be justice backed up by the Bill of Rights. For those that do not remember or never learned, The Constitution is a set of prohibitions, not against other”citizens” but against government and its excesses. The Constitution is written on 4 pages, in 6th grade English, and found in all public libraries as documents or in a book. There was no free public education, as nothing is free, someone paid the price. This experiment did not cite the number of Catholics that could be on the Supreme Court or limit them by exclusion. Not all members of the Court can identify with a racial group but can recognize the various constituencies available from which to choose. “Why are there no Indians from any of the tribes we signed treaties with on the court?” There are no Russian Americans that were born in this country on the court! The court for over 175 years did not seek opinions from Europeans as to the meanings provided in the Constitution. Common Sense the pamphlet was understandable to every citizen as well as those of foreign extraction visiting here. Common sense by the average citizen could be explained to another that could not read a pamphlet or The Declaration of Independence. This Christian nation has offered to the whole of mankind our lives, fortunes, educational achievments, and our children sometimes dresses as soldiers or volunteers. The success of a nation is measured not by those fleeing the country, but by those trying to legally gain access. Respect for law and duty to our forefathers to perpetuate this country and our Constitution. We do not shout “God save the King” nor ask the Politbureau for permission to visit a religious shrine. We frown on those that would destroy a Cross in the middle of the night, even after the Supreme Court decided its fate. Cowards strike those seen as targets regardless of the issues involved. The founding fathers gave us a country of law and tradition and the duty to sustain it for future generations. If you can read, Thank a teacher! If you have oppurtunity and need to read. Thank a soldier!

          When uneducated fools compare someone to Stalin or Hitler, it’s totally meaningless…much like a child spouting angry rants at parents who are trying to teach him something. You guys sound like little children who have their toy taken away…meaningless and harmless.

            Denniso, you seem to be drunk on koolaid so let me tell you that some of the policies that “Osama” has done are exactly like Hitler’s policies or ideals. You can find a lot of similarities by reading a book called Mein Kampf. I read it for my WWII history class at IU. It’s 800 pages and I guarantee that you’ll see the similarities when you start reading the second half of the book. I’m just waiting for “Osama” to start yelling “Seig Heil!”

          • denniso

            OK, so you’re a kid…I though so. Serious people certainly know about Hitler’s book, it’s good that you’re finding out about it. If you really want to learn as you grow up, be careful about snap judgements that sound good or feel good to you. Read, take in info,but don’t rush to adament judgements before you know enough…
            take some time before you stick yourself into a mental rut,like many here have clearly done.

            What do you mean? I have a masters degree in History from IU, 20 years with the military, married, have 4 kids, and have earned the right to be called an American. You have not! I’ve also read another book called “The Communist Manifesto” and you can see some of “Osama” in that one too. I suggest that you take the time to study about the subjects at hand. Oh wait, study? A lib? Satan will be wearing a parka in hades before that happens!

    Just watching the debates of the Campaign 2008 between Biden, and BO and Hillary when they all ran for President, its a scream! You can catch them on reruns on YouTube. Worth a few laughs when TV is dull! There is no way any of them really get along or agree. Its an act. Hillary made a comment that BO had virtually no experience, as he started campaigning less than one year into the Federal Senate. A little over 100 days! Talk about “AUDACITY”! Hillary said he was virtually on training wheels–just a Junior Senator, still wet behind the ears. Hill had 8 years under her belt by the time of BO’s inauguration in 2009. At least she had that. (I don’t count “First Lady” as experience in elected office as some do. Its a different kind of experience.) Her Senate job was her ONLY elected office time. Sarah Palin had more years in elected office that those two, and plus SARAH is the only one of the 3 that has EVER has EXECUTIVE EXPERIENCE, she actually ran the state with a 75% approval rating when McCain picked her as his VP. Joe has a lot of years in the Senate, over 30, so he is the winner for “length of days” is all. Time in office isn’t everything. He is just the favorite son in his home state & that is why he keeps getting re-elected. But he doesn’t have a good reputation. He has run several times for President and failed. He just doesn’t measure up. I think people can see right through him. He has his issues for sure. He’s really just “Biden the Bluffer”. He talks out of both sides of his mouth, so what are we to believe when he recommends something or someone???

    As Sarah Palin said in her debate with Joe Biden after he made some unbelievable statement: “Oh, Joe! Say it isn’t so!”

    S.C.;The Constitution IS a living document. Sometimes it’s open for interpretation,such as the 16th admendment. Many things have changed since (1776/1784). The Bible is also a living document for those who believe.The world has changed tremendously since it was written. Different verses have several meanings to a wide variety of people yet the Bible still remains the same.No society can grow with a closed mind.

      Thanks, Ed. You crapped in your own nest AGAIN. Typically, you bring nothing to this website. Today, you proved to everyone how much of a shill you are for forces that want nothing less than the utter destruction of America.
      You said ‘many things have changed.’ That much you got right – IN SPADES. No longer do our elected ‘leaders’ need character. No longer they do they need talent. They don’t need ethics, a sense of morality or a functional knowledge of English. These scummy traitors don’t have to READ the laws they pass, and they don’t have to UNDERSTAND what they’ve passed. In the words of one your twisted icons, Her Lowness [Queen Pelosi], laws have to be passed so “we’ll know what’s in them.”
      Eddiepoo, thanks again for walking around bent over with your pants down around your ankles. As you and your chums get flushed down the political toilet, remember that no one forced you to think with your head rammed up a place that is supposed to be anatomically impossible.

      Of course Kagan is anti-military. I know some folks who picket and try to get high schools to deny access to military recruiters on “career days”. The truth is they want the entire military disbanded…believing we shouldn’t have a military, and that if we look peaceful (i.e. defenseless) we won’t have enemies. Remember the spotted owl issue? The true motive behind that was to put the timber industry out of business. Whenever we hear a progressive speak, we always have to ask what that underlying motive is.

      If things keep going the way they are, the military and law enforcement community will inevitably be put in a position to pick sides. Protect their country and their rights, or be used as a tool for government control? I bet some are wondering about that now. The police/firefighter monopoly bill is of great concern.

  • Black Knight

    LIke most Liberals you can tell when they are lying. Watch their lips move. Kagan is as anti military as they come. Just like most dumb dems. As for fruit cake Eddie, he is wrong. Most justices were prior judges. Only 40 of the total 111 justices never had bench experience, and all sitting justices since 1987 have been bench justices. William H. Rehnquist is listed as not being a bench judge, but in fact he was already an associate Justice of the Supreme Court when he was selected by Reagan to be the Chief Justice, just like Harlan Stone was, so in reality, only 38 were not bench judges. Like most LIberals they hold to the same philosophy that Joeseph Goebels of Nazi Germany did. “If you tell a lie big enough and long enough, the people will begin to believe it.”

          • http://naver samurai

            Actually, I like JFK. He chose to do the harder right. He turned his back on his political handlers, mafia, special interest groups, etc., and he has my respect. If you read his authorized biography, you’ll see that these things could have lead to his death and not just some crazed lunatic. Remember, Jack Ruby was with the mafia and he killed Oswald after he was captured. Maybe they were just taking care of some loose ends? Please post something that can be supported by facts and not liberal koolaid.

            JFK was just like Bush……….born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and resposible for getting thousands of americans killed in a War that had NO meaning…………..

          • denniso

            There is a plausible theory that Kennedy was killed because he was going to take us out of the Vietnam war,which at his time was much smaller than after he died. Johnson let himself believe that we had to win there and so ramped up the war and the killing on both sides…we had 500,000 on the ground at the height of it. Nixon even fooled me when he won the presidency on the promise of a ‘secret strategy’ to end the war…what was it? more bombing of the North and neighboring countries.
            In defense of Kennedy, he inherited the beginnings of the war from Eisenhower who put in American ‘advisors’.

            J Edgar Hoover, the cross dresser,hated communism w/ a passion that clouded his ‘reason’. He also hated the Kennedy’s.

            Timr, since you don’t have the BALLS to serve this country, let me tell you this. My father served 3 straight years in Vietnam. When he retired in 1987 with 32.5 years in service, I asked him would he go back if Vietnam was still going on. He told me yes I would because the mission isn’t over yet. True Americans don’t run from battle, we finish it!

            My personal life is none of your effing business. You and other rightwing gun nuts think that only people who fight in the military
            have a right to ctiticize public policy that has to do w/ our use of
            force…baloney. W/ that absurd reasoning women were denied the vote for 250 yrs in this country…then for decades women couldn’t be elected to public office by that stupid ‘logic’.

            I think that your idiotic reasoning is wrong and I don’t follow it or play into it by even commenting on it. You want to think that you have special rights because you were in the military…you don’t. If you were a civil human and listened to others w/ different opinions
            w/o calling them names, I would thank you for serving…but that’s not the case, is it?

            Bush was and still is a coward who got help in avoiding going to vietnam when millions of other kids didn’t have a choice and had their lives ruined or ended. Accept it…

      It was painful for me to watch the last election. It was obvious that Obama was a power hungry individual whose skill was in obtaining money from government. McCain ran a dumb, Neville Chamberlain-like campaign. So weak that I began to wonder if it wasn’t intentional. People are wired to want to believe good news. After two years of watching his decision-making, people are ready to make the correction. I think Obama will become an asterisk in history. I hope we will be wiser about who we vote for.

    • Laura Schlegel

      People seem to be throwing these words around a lot these days. Good to have an open, respectful discussion of what they mean! Here’s just a random search smattering of definitions…

      Communism:a system of social organization in which all economic and social activity is controlled by a totalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating political party.

      Socialism:1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
      2 a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
      3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.

      de·moc·ra·cy   
      1.
      government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.
      2.
      a state having such a form of government: The United States and Canada are democracies.
      3.
      a state of society characterized by formal equality of rights and privileges.
      4.
      political or social equality; democratic spirit.
      5.
      the common people of a community as distinguished from any privileged class; the common people with respect to their political power.

      Capitalism is a social system based on the recognition of individual rights, including property rights, in which all property is privately owned. Under capitalism the state is separated from economics (production and trade), just like the state is separated from religion. Capitalism is the system of of laissez faire. It is the system of political freedom.Capitalism is an economic system in which the means of production are privately owned; supply, demand and price are mostly set by market forces rather than economic planning; and profit is distributed to owners who invest in businesses.

      Oligarchy: means the rule of the few, and those few are generally the people who are richer and more powerful than the others, what you might call the aristocrats or the nobles.

      I would argue that over the 30 years of erroding regulations in favor of the off shored/out sourced corporate profiteering, their tax evasion and tax cuts to the growing rich, as upward mobility for all and middle class has dwindled, that we clearly have to undo the Oligarchy of the corporations w/global tentacles and those of US that are continually duped to support them. Also in light of our economic rubble with global ripple affects, I would argue that capitalist markets must have safety nets against exploitative profiteering practices and for “We the People” so the few at the top can’t keep gambling away our well being. Laissez Faire “In Greed We Trust” must be reigned in…this does not make US a Socialist, Marxist, or Nazi Dictatorship.

    Every time, Biden opens his mouth he spews more ridiculous drivel.
    It’s so obvious, in your face, that Kagan is without doubt anti-military! You don’t have to look very far on the internet or her scarce paper trail for the evidence. Does Biden really thinks he makes it so by saying it….or is he fronting for OBAMA and COMPANY.
    He lets him say the bizarre, false statements to cover for OBAMA so our doublespeak Prez. won’t be accused of yet another lie!
    He is such a buffoon and can’t keep a straight face as he tells this nonsense. He’s the scapegoat and the patsy who delivers OBama’s and the Liberal’s agenda of falsehoods and lies. If they open their mouths, they are lying. Give it a rest, no one believes you!

  • Delores Smith

    PERSONAL LIBERTY NEWS DESK: Excellent article! Thanks.

    Joe Biden, I don’t know how to tell you this. Unless you can crawl into Kagan’s mind, you can’t state the views of Kagan. You can only repeat and substantiate many of the statements that she has made.

    This is my opinion without having to crawl in any mind.
    Kagan thinks like Obama, and Obama thinks like Kagan. Every statement that both of them have made gives us proof that their goals are to change the Constitution of The United States of America. This makes Kagan unqualified to be on The Supreme Court of The United States of America. Our Justices are not there to legislate from the bench…they are there to interrept the Law of the Land.

    Joe, do you mind if I call you Joe? Please take some sound advice, don’t give any more opinions. Try humming.

We don’t need another Supreme hollering “CHANGE!” Some of the opinions handed down by the Supremes lately just don’t make sense according to the Constitution. They gave women the right to kill their developing children in the womb which goes against the Constitution’s giving us the right to life, the most basic right we have.

      We do need to “change” legislation that works against “We the People”, especially the corporate personhood and money = free speech rights w/out disclosure.
      Women should have the right of informed choice over their reproductive lives. No one wants an abortion but they need to be kept legal, safe and counseled. If they are not, abuse, mutilation rises.Too many women are too young, too old, too compromised or handicapped to the extreme socially, economically, mentally, physically to carry a preganancy. These are the complex realities that as a society, we need to raise awareness of and honestly face with compassion not moral supremacy ideologies that leave people w/o safe realistic options. Thank you for respectfully considering this.

      Chaos factor, since you have never been in the military I’ll tell it to you like this. Under Carter many soldiers that were married had to apply for welfare to feed their families. Under Clinton, we only had one 1% pay raise in 8 years. Reagan, Bush (I), and Bush (II) gave us raises and made it possible for us to support our families. Plus the 3 GOP’s brought back patriotism and good feelings about America. Carter’s brother Billy had good feelings about Lybia and Clinton had good feeling for any woman in the White House.

He still hasn’t answered me and it has been a little more than a year. Don’t forget “Osama” didn’t have the BALLS to serve either.

      Yeah, let’s go fight a war based on lies, make more enemies and not pay for it…go shopping and buy big cars instead, support those that vote no to improve our soldiers safety equipment or to improve their conditions when they come home. Let’s keep US dependant on dirty fuels so we can pollute more of our environment and fight more wars. Let’s vote for those that bust unions so they can out source most of our industries, manufacturing and jobs. Let’s vote for those that support: those that gamble away our economy to the point we are the biggest manufacturer of derivatives, those that control our media, GM food & pesticide industry to air brushing our text books. But all of a sudden, when we have to take time & spend money to turn these messes around and truly invest in empowering US and our environment, “they” all of a sudden care about the debt to future generations but “they” don’t want to pay their fare share in taxes and are against social/consumer safety nets and spear head fear mongering against Obama who is very pragmatically trying to transition US to sustainablity and upward mobility for all, again and invites US all to help. Can’t wait to see Bush/Cheney/Palin/McCain and ilk help clean up the gushing oil and help open the flood gates for green tech solutions, jobs and industry!

            Don’t be infantile…I loathe Cheny/Bush for lying to the soldiers and the public about Iraq. That lie got 4500 and counting killed…sons and daughters and parents of little kids, killed. It also got 100,000 or more soldiers maimed and crippled and traumatized.
            The ripple effect of grief for the death and destruction just in our country is probably in the millions.

            Don’t even dare to tell me that I don’t have compassion and enormous sympathy for the dead and the survivors of the biggest debacle in U.S.
            history, next to the Vietnam war.

            Sympathy for the parents or kids of the soldiers does not mean we should lie to them about the facts of the Bush war, just as lying to them does not bring them back or ease the pain of the families.

            then you loath the liberals, too, right?? They lied to the troops and the public just as much as Bush, and maybe more!!! Or is it ok to lie to the troops and get them killed as long as you are a progressive liberal??

          • denniso

            You and your Bush/Cheny lovers are just too loyal and dense to understand what actually happened. Most open minded, but not the blind zealots, know that Cheny was the point man in manipulating and massaging the intel about Saddam and WMD. He got Tony Blair to go along w/ him and he pressured the CIA to follow his preconceived notion of WMD, in order to justify an invasion of Iraq. The Dems were told what Cheny wanted them to be told, so of course some thought he was right. Many Dems rejected the ‘evidence’ and voted against the resolution to allow force against Saddam. As I remember, no Repubs voted against it.
            The truth is already out there for anyone who really wants to know it and in the years ahead it will become more obvious when historians aren’t as afraid of looking into the worst foreign policy lie in our history. You and your blockhead buddies will never see it through your

            Who’s out of their mind? You forget that Cheny/Bush and your rightwingers hate the French because they didn’t go along w/ us in our invasion of Iraq? And yes Cheny was a powerful man,since he was effectively the president,w/ Bush being his puppet for most of the time. Cheny is also evil. And, since the CIA is the most powerful intel agency in the world,all he had to do was control their output to influence the rest of the world, though some did go against us.

    From MediaMatters.org
    Conservatives claim Kagan is an inexperienced, socialist, Marxist bad driver who hates the military and wants to steal your guns
    Well, that was predictable.
    As we saw last year with the nomination of Justice Sonia Sotomayor, few events unleash a bigger torrent of conservative misinformation than when a Democratic president nominates someone to the Supreme Court. But there was a chance, albeit small, that this time might be different.
    By all reasonable accounts, Elena Kagan does not fit the Marxist/socialist mold into which conservative media like to shoehorn all prominent figures to the left of Glenn Beck. (This is not to suggest that Sotomayor fit, either.) In fact, prior to — and in the days following — her nomination, numerous conservatives and legal scholars praised Kagan. Reagan Solicitor General Charles Fried endorsed Kagan’s nomination, describing her as “supremely intelligent” and “an effective, powerful person.” Bush judicial nominee Miguel Estrada called Kagan a “rigorous lawyer” who “should be confirmed.” Even Fox News personalities joined the chorus of praise, with reporter Shannon Bream calling her a “brilliant individual” with a “fantastic resume.” Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano said that Kagan’s credentials are “impeccable.”
    Of course, it’s naïve to think the conservative noise machine would sit on its hands and not seize a good opportunity to rile up its base. After all, the conservative movement is fueled — both monetarily and electorally — by a cynical mix of outright misinformation and fearmongering about all things conservatives perceive as not conservative.
    Prior to Kagan’s nomination, conservatives telegraphed their upcoming efforts to oppose any nominee, regardless of opinions or qualifications. Bill Kristol, who by this point is qualified to teach a master’s-level course in shameless dishonesty, said in April that while he “endorsed Elena Kagan,” Republicans “should oppose her anyway.” National Review Online said that the “question for conservatives will be not whether but how” to oppose the eventual nominee. Foreshadowing his future efforts to set the new land-speed record for lies about a Supreme Court nominee, Sean Hannity agreed that “it’s always good to have a fight over the courts.”
    Additionally, as TPM reported earlier this week, conservative activist Curt Levey — whom the media should stop quoting — counseled the GOP on delaying the eventual confirmation to help block the president’s agenda. In a recording of a conference call between Levey and “Republican operatives,” Levey made it clear that conservatives shouldn’t be bound by pesky things like reality and honesty when opposing the eventual nominee. From TPM’s Brian Beutler:
    Levey acknowledged that a filibuster likely won’t last–that Obama’s nominee, now known to be Solicitor General Elana Kagan, will almost certainly be confirmed. But he hammered home the point to Republicans that there’s value in mischaracterizing any nominee, and dragging the fight out as long as possible, whether or not Obama’s choice is particularly liberal.
    “We wouldn’t have a lot to object to if it was [Interior Secretary Ken] Salazar. He’s quite moderate as Democrats come,” Levey admitted. “We’re not necessarily going to say that if he’s nominated, but I think that’s the truth.” Emphasis mine. This advice was met with laughter by one of the listeners on the call. (Salazar was cited in early reports as a long-shot candidate on Obama’s short list.)
    So, conservatives made clear that their eventual opposition of Obama’s Supreme Court nominee would be motivated by political gain, with Levey suggesting that lying would be a good way to accomplish this goal.
    And lie they did.
    The two main themes that have dominated conservative attempts to derail Kagan’s confirmation have been that she lacks judicial experience and is “anti-military.” These are both rooted in blatant falsehoods, so let’s tackle them one at a time.
    Immediately following Obama’s announcement of Kagan, Fox News, RedState, and several other conservative outlets rushed to brand her as “Obama’s Harriet Miers,” a comparison that conservatives themselves say doesn’t hold water.
    The argument that Kagan’s lack of judicial experience should disqualify her is asinine for several reasons. First, it is far from unprecedented to have Supreme Court justices who’ve never served as judges. More than a third of justices had no prior judicial experience when they were first nominated to the court, including two of the past four chief justices and seven of the nine justices who decided Brown v. Board of Education.
    In fact, Kagan’s legal experience is comparable to that of William Rehnquist, Clarence Thomas, and John Roberts at the time of their nominations.
    But experience doesn’t matter if you hate the military, right? Kristol helped to get the ball rolling on this front, claiming on Monday that Kagan has a “hostility to the U.S. military” and urging conservatives to fight her confirmation. This may strike you as strange considering Kristol had previously “endorsed” Kagan — then again, if you are at all familiar with Kristol’s “work,” you’ll realize this probably doesn’t even rank in the top 100 most absurdly dishonest things he’s ever done.
    The “anti-military” attacks on Kagan have hinged on the claim that she kicked military recruiters off campus at Harvard. First of all, most people who are “anti-military” don’t usually describe serving in the military as the “noblest of all professions.” But more substantively, Kagan did not actually kick military recruiters off campus at Harvard. Conservatives (looking at you, Sean) are having a hard time grasping this simple fact. Again, Elena Kagan did not “throw,” “kick,” “boot,” “ban,” or “bar” military recruiters from Harvard’s campus while she was dean of Harvard Law School. Harvard Law students still had access to military recruiters during her tenure. In fact, military recruitment at Harvard Law was not even diminished during Kagan’s tenure.
    So, there go those talking points — but of course those weren’t the only smears conservatives tried to lob at Kagan. As Media Matters president Eric Burns said on MSNBC this week, “conservatives have nothing” so “they’re throwing everything at the wall.”
    Indeed, we haven’t even covered some of the more ridiculous smears. Let’s take a quick tour of some of the inane things conservative media figures and outlets threw at the wall this week.
    Walking embarrassment/Human Events editor Jason Mattera led the race to the bottom with an attack on Kagan’s looks. Mattera said that Kagan, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, and Sotomayor all “look like linebackers for the New York JETS.” Responding to a caller who referred to Kagan as a “horrendous creature,” radio host Michael Savage said that “although I find it personally grotesque, there are many who find it attractive. … Let’s talk about her radical, Marxist policies.”
    Numerous conservative media figures seized on Kagan’s college thesis to claim, as Rush Limbaugh put it, that “it is clear this babe is hot for socialism.” Conservatives have run with this ridiculous claim despite the fact that the thesis did not express support for either socialism or radicalism.
    Limbaugh and Beck claimed Kagan wants to censor right-wing speech. This is literally the opposite of true. In the article they cite, Kagan stated that the government “may not restrict” speech “because it disagrees with … the ideas espoused by the speaker.”
    Taking a break from looking for Obama’s birth certificate and Noah’s Ark, WorldNetDaily.com distorted Kagan’s record to fabricate the smear that Kagan essentially supported terrorism sponsors.
    Byron York, with an assist from Fox News, forwarded a decade-old smear against Kagan that even NRO judicial attack dog Ed Whelan called “highly speculative.”
    Speaking of Whelan, he spent most of the week making things up, and actually hit Kagan for being a bad driver.
    And it wouldn’t be a Supreme Court confirmation “debate” if conservatives didn’t tell their base the evil liberal judge wants to steal their guns. So they went ahead and lied about that, too.
    So, just to recap: According to the unhinged right, Elena Kagan is an inexperienced, socialist, Marxist, anti-military, free-speech-censoring bad driver who supports terrorism and wants to steal your guns.
    Not only are the smears the same — always — but we were also reminded that some other things never change. Namely, Bill O’Reilly has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about.
    Oh, and Pat Buchanan still has a problem with “Jews.”

    S.C.; YOU love your pants down between your legs comment and it’s so you!Tells us all something about the sickness you have and it’s not just being a shallow troll. I have seen few “stories” by Livingston and Meyers that aren’t biased and set up against one person or another. Most of the time the issues are set up for negative responses or pre-conceived talking points. So you all just mimmick the answers that are already given. Most Americans see thru your continual fear and smear “campaigns” so go ahead and bash Kagan with phoney made up opinions. The more you taint her or any person the more the truth comes out against your lies. Thus she becomes a shoe-in and will be nominated.

    Laura, For a tie dyed numskull, the military was not created, to be a meal on wheels, feel good wimps. That is for liberal democrats socialist jackasses are for. They get their asses killed, along with everyone around them. See all socialists democrats have got their union allotted caverious time done today, not one of you simpering socialists have a clue on any real world life. edyee, I see s c and JeffH are just here today to give you another beating, like a missouri mule needs every so often. As a matter of fact all jackasses, only pull in the right direction, when rhey get a horse hiding to activate the sensory motivator, through their lope eared access, to the long faced skulls.It would probably help our jug eared muslim phony President socialist pee brain, to go in the right direction. Now the Afgahan war is over the Iraq war in costs, and Onumnut is sucking air and Karzi’s muslim posterior, after kissing him and talking smack about him. Better send Plugs Biden on a plane to chew on his feet for awhile, to difert attention away from Omoron’s lack of smarts. When Cheny told Leaky Leathy to F. O., that was a great comment,between them, to a phony bastard who was kicked off as a head of a committee for loose siphinter muscles, for disclosing government secrets. Kagan is another avowed socialist and another tag along Omoron’s ilk, no experience in real world life, pretty much lives in a classroom and theories, we see how the muslim professor is screwing up our contry and economy, using socialist communist stle government approve by the jackassed Congress. Dems and Omoron must have a proclivity for lesiban bull dyke biggg, questional gendered, hunan organisms. Of course Omoron swung both ways and he does cohabital with a grummpy scowly big Mama!!

    Obummer: “Hello Elena. How would you like to be a Supreme Court Justice? It pays $208,100 per year.”

    Kagan: “Sounds good to me.”

    Obummer: “Just one little thing though. This fall, the Supreme Court will be taking up the constitutionality of Obamacare. I need you to rule in favor of it if you want the job.”

    Kagan: “No problem, Mr. president. Kiss kiss kiss.”

  • 45caliber

    Kagan is a liberal. ALL liberals have an anti-military bias, therefore she does. Most consider – at best – that all military personnel are frustrated murderers who have joined for the sole purpose of being able to kill people legally. Patriotism and protection of our country aren’t considered at all. They don’t understand anyone who can think that way and can only place us in their own limited exposure to what they consider is life. That’s why they fear military personnel and veterans as possible terrorists, more dangerous than any Islamic terrorist.

      When you and others give me silly ‘nicknames’, I could care less…but I often miss your ‘comments’ because of that childish habit since they don’t come up when I search through all the comments.
