     Is this the example of the National Rifle Association’s quid pro quo?

NRA tells board members they’re not to speak out or testify against Kagan’s SCOTUS nomination.  Is this part of  the deal they cut for getting their carve-out of the “DISCLOSE ACT” bill?

     The Attorney General for Delaware, Beau Biden, was admitted to the hospital earlier today, and doctors have announced that the Vice President’s eldest son suffered a “mild stroke”. At this point, Biden is expected to make a full recovery.

     Beau Biden had been thought to be the Democratic candidate to take his father’s Senate seat, but in the “toxic” climate that has engulfed Washington DC since Obama Pelosi and Reid went on their massive spending spree, he opted not to run for the seat in November. Those who followed the Larry Sinclair-Barack Obama story know that it is alleged that Joe Biden was rewarded with the VP nomination after Beau Biden used his office to have Larry Sinclair arrested after his June 2008 press conference at the National Press Club.

      Should Elena Kagan be confirmed by the Senate for her appointment to the Supreme Court, and barring any major issue it is presumed she will be, Beau Biden could be on the short list of potential nominees for Kagan’s present position as Solicitor General.

     The left is already blasting Barack Obama for choosing the Solicitor General,  Elena Kagan, to fill the seat of retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. Many see this choice as moving the Court more toward the conservative right, instead of toward the left views of the likes of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

      A particular “endorsement” of Ms. Kagan comes from the Solictor General under Pres. George W. Bush, Ted Olsen, who believes that Ms. Kagan is a qualified nominee. Olsen appreciates Ms. Kagan’s views of the Constitution in its “strict” terms. Others, like the Federalist Society, have said that Obama has chosen “an individual who places a higher premium on political progressivism than adherence to the set of laws that have made this country strong and free,” said David McIntosh, a former Republican congressman and the co-founder of the conservative Federalist Society.

     Dr. Orly Taitz, the attorney for a group of Plaintiff’s challenging Barack Obama’s Presidential eligibility, physically delivered her case filings to the Department of Justice and to the Supreme Court yesterday. This step was required because although having all files signed for in the past, it has recenty come to light that additional briefs and filings have allegedly been imprperly routed in the Supreme Court system, prompting a request for an FBI investigation.

      From Dr. Taitz’ blog:

USDOJ: Office of Solicitor General AND SCOTUS!

Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq.  just received a phone call from Karen Thornton at the Department of Justice.  She stated that all of Orly’s documents and filings have been forwarded to the Office of Solicitor General, Elena Kagan.  That includes all three Dossiers, the Quo Warranto Easterling v. Obama aka Soetoro.  Please show your support that we want these matters and investigations looked into immediately, 202-514-2203.
 
Elena Kagan
Elena Kagan, Office of Solicitor General

Coincidently, after Dr. Taitz called me with that update, she received another call from Officer Giaccino at the Supreme Court.  Officer Giaccino stated both pleadings have been received and being analyzed now.  Also, Justice Roberts must be back because the Officer also stated that all the documents that were given to Chief Justice Roberts at Idaho University are now at the Supreme Court and are also being analyzed.  We will be notified tomorrow after 1:00pm EST as to whether they will be on the docket at the Supreme Court.
