Hype for Elena Kagan—Round Two

The last time we went through the Supreme Court nomination process, there was a veritable groundswell of hyperbole for Elena Kagan — so much so that I couldn’t resist writing about it  here. The theme is ethnic networking. How else explain the fact that someone with a completely undistinguished scholarly record not only got tenure at the University of Chicago but was appointed dean of Harvard Law School?

She had exactly two publications in law review journals when she got tenure and has done very little since. A record like that would be a tough sell for tenure even in the nether regions of academia, never mind the most elite schools in the land. But now her lack of publications is seen by her supporters as an asset: She has no embarrassing paper trail on controversial issues.

Once again, the same people are hyping Kagan as absolutely brilliant. In a recent Huffington Post article (“Elena Kagan Emerging As Supreme Court Front-Runner“), Charles Fried says, “She is a supremely intelligent person, really one of the most intelligent people I have encountered, and I have met a lot of them, as one does in this business. She is very adroit politically. … She has quite a strong personality and a winning personality. I think she’s an effective, powerful person and a very, very intelligent person, and a very hardworking and serious person.” Presumably she can also walk on water.

Fried also praised Kagan effusively in the earlier round, along with Laurence Tribe, another Jewish Harvard Law professor. As I noted, “Kagan was appointed Dean of Harvard Law by Lawrence Summers — also Jewish and with a strong Jewish identity. Summers and Kagan covered for Laurence Tribe when he lifted a passage from another scholar’s book without attribution. Ethnic networking is nothing if not reciprocal.

The religion/ethnicity issue rears its head only slightly: “There has been some superficial concern over Kagan’s religion — not because she’s Jewish but because without Stevens there will be no Protestants on the court.” And Kagan would be the first open homosexual on the court.  (Actually, it’s surprising we aren’t hearing more about this, given how controversial sexual orientation and issues like homosexual marriage are these days.)  But not to worry: “These are distractions not speed bumps, strategists predict, if Obama chooses to go with Kagan.”

No White Protestants on the Supreme Court in a country that in living memory thought of itself as WASP at its very core. But, with Kagan, there would be three Jews and no White Protestants. Who exactly are these “strategists” and what is the goal of their strategizing?

The really amazing thing is that Kagan is being framed as a conservative. But on the issues that really count — issues related to multiculturalism, executive power, and free speech, there is every reason to suppose that Kagan is on the left: Her record

strongly suggests that Kagan would be quite willing to fashion her legal arguments to attain her liberal/left policy goals, and that is exactly what her other writings show. Her 1993 article “Regulation of Hate Speech and Pornography After R.A.V,” (60 University of Chicago Law Review 873; available on Lexis/Nexis) indicates someone who is entirely on board with seeking ways to circumscribe free speech in the interests of multicultural virtue: “I take it as a given that we live in a society marred by racial and gender inequality, that certain forms of speech perpetuate and promote this inequality, and that the uncoerced disappearance of such speech would be cause for great elation.”

She acknowledges that the Supreme Court is unlikely to alter its stance that speech based on viewpoint is protected by the First Amendment, but she sees that as subject to change with a different majority: The Supreme Court “will not in the foreseeable future” adopt the view that “all governmental efforts to regulate such speech … accord with the Constitution.” But in her view there is nothing to prevent it from doing so. Clearly, she does not see the protection of viewpoint-based speech as a principle worth preserving or set in stone. Rather, she believes that a new majority could rule that “all government efforts to regulate such speech” would be constitutional. All government efforts.

It’s noteworthy that the organized Jewish community has a long record of opposing free speech related to multicultural issues not only in the US, but in a wide range of other countries. Kagan’s views fit well with the views of the organized Jewish community: Every effort should be made to restrict “hate speech” within the current legal context, but to do whatever possible to change the context so that such speech is outlawed.

Further, as the HuffPo article notes,  ”the praise from conservatives may sound damning to those who worry that the court is … too willing to accommodate the radical expansion of executive power. Kagan has been criticized by civil libertarians for her expansive stance on detainee policy.”

The promotion of a strong executive branch and lack of concern for civil liberties is exactly the problem: The worst excesses of government power in the last century have come from the left. Knowing that Kagan advocates a powerful central government is hardly reassuring.

The picture that emerges is that of someone who would have no hesitation to expand the power of the federal government to end First Amendment freedoms and squelch any hope that a White racialist movement could achieve real power. Those ideas are entirely within the Jewish mainstream.

In summary, Kagan “sees her job as a legal scholar to find a way to ensure that these goals are achieved while paying lip service to the legal tradition of the First Amendment.” And in the long run, she would just love it if the First Amendment would be jettisoned entirely.

So the hype for Kagan is dishonest on two counts: First, there is no evidence whatever that she is brilliant; all the evidence is that she has achieved far more in the academic world and in government than she deserves  based on her actual performance. Second, she is inaccurately presented as a conservative. Her meager paper trail of academic writing  clearly indicates that she would be a staunch warrior on the side of the multicultural left on critical issues like free speech.

And despite all the hyperbole from “conservatives” like Charles Fried, I suspect the people who are promoting her are well aware of that fact.

    I don’t see anyone putting forward any White Protestant men’s names.

    Do you have the name of a socially conservative, White Protestant man who is compassionite towards White working people, the very farmers & mechanics who built this country? Someone who is genetically of the stuff that the founders of the United States had, and would have an understanding of the Constitution & Bill of Rights in his genes.

    I’m sure there are many such men. But, as I’ve mentioned before, you hit a comfort level at a certain age, maybe a little self doubt, maybe a little humility, maybe personal concerns about more stress on your health, and you really don’t want to go on to the next level.

    “Brilliant” is a word that should never be used in reference to writing like Kagan’s.

    It is too easy for even the dullest “legal mind” to begin with asinine anti-Constitutional premises, draw equally asinine conclusions, and use what passes for “legal reasoning” to rationalize them. Such writing can only come from a rot-brained moral idiot. Even if the idiot can turn a phrase, her intellect must be judged by the direction in which she turns it. Our national destiny is being charted by imbeciles.

    Of course, Obama himself, like his wife, has been hyped as a “brilliant” lawyer. The fact is, I have barnyard pets smarter (and better looking) than Obama and his wife. When Blacks and Jews praise each other’s “brilliance”, or praise each other in any way, watch where you walk. When all concerned are lawyers, you’re already standing knee-deep in bullshit.

    Of course the Jewish Mafia is fervently seeking to install another member of The Tribe on the Supreme Court — why should we expect otherwise? It is the Jewish Mafia, after all.

    Move along, move along. Avert your eyes. Nothing to see here. The Jews are God’s “chosen” and their ascendancy should never be questioned, say the Judeo Christian Zionist dispensationalists. Plus, they’ve been purified in the crucible of suffering and victimization, say the Judeo-phile liberals.

    Their morality is sublime, so there’s no need to worry if they dominate. Why just look at how morally sublime the Jewish Bolsheviks, the Jewish Zionists and the Jewish neocons have been — only a few tens of millions murdered by the self-centered, authoritarian Statist “progressive” politics like those advocated by Kagan, her Jewish cronies, and their predecessors.

    What’s to fear but fear itself?

    Golly Gee–Will We Have A Jew Queer, Or Jew Zionist, As Our Ruler-”Justice”?–What Drama, What Agony–What Putridity
    (Apollonian, 12 Apr 10)

    Well, it’s un-realistic to expect Obama/Soetoro, gross usurper (and probably an outright illegal alien), w. utmost contempt for US Constitution, Western civ., and Christian white people, and most importantly, front-man and spokes-flack for the criminal conspiracy presently in charge of USA, the COUNTERFEITERS behind US Federal Reserve Bank (Fed) scam/fraud–see RealityZone.com and TheMoneyMasters.com for expo/ref.–to act in any way out of character so far manifested so consistently.

    ONLY DRAMA–and that’s all it is, MELODRAMA–is whether next Supreme Ct. “justice” will be Jew queer or just Jew–one who is all for Israeli terror-state, that’s all. For remember Israeli “tough-guys,” leaders of “Judeo-Christian” (JC) hereticalists, like to pretend they’re soooooooooooo “Biblically-oriented,” u know, for the JC suckers.

    Consider there practically isn’t a single campaign promise Obama/Soetoro hasn’t gone back on–HE’S ABSOLUTE, TOTAL LIAR for everything he says and does, without exception–this then just heightens the un-certainty among the fools for his Pontiffic-styled “decision” within “Jews”-media.

    What’s important for USA patriots is to follow, heed, and understand the GENERAL CYCLIC course of history according to “Decline of the West,” by Oswald Spengler. So if Kagan doesn’t get nomination, some other Jew homosexual is likely to–what’s big deal or mystery?–and if it’s not Jew homosexual, then maybe it’ll be gentile homosexual–but this isn’t as likely, is it? Then JCs will make a big stink and complain and scream that “DEAREST ISRAEL IS IN DANGER,” with great weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    And if any white Christian (meaning real Christian, hence anti-semite–NOT JC) dares speak out against it, Jew oligarchs will counter-attack, de-rigueur, by means of mass-corporate (heavily homosexual-oriented) “Jews”-media–as always. But that’s okay, regarding “Jews”-media, as it’s been losing so much credibility so quickly lately, due to mighty internet and blog-art.

    Comrades: u need to heed what’s been happening–in general, A LITERAL MORAL CRUSADE AGAINST CHRISTIANITY (hence anti-semitism) and Western OBJECTIVITY as of Aristotle, Eng. Common Law, etc., indeed reason itself–this perpetrated by the CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY behind Fed COUNTERFEITING scam.

    The two main factions of this criminal conspiracy are the “left”, led by Obama/Soetoro and symbolized by Jew homosexuals like Kagan, and on other hand, the “right” headed by Zionist Israeli terror-state with their JC suckalongs who pretend Christ was Jew (hence Talmudist).

    For note (again), as COUNTERFEITING is fraud by very nature and essence, the political/cultural “ideal” must be consistent, most critically–lies for the sake of lies–which requires basic subjectivism as premise thereto, always “flexible,” ready for any lie, at any moment, for any purpose–MORALISM always trumping objective reality and TRUTH of Christ, esp. in style of Immanuel Kant, rationalist-styled hero of modern era, along w. J.J. Rousseau, muck-headed mystic, in the background.

    Thus reason and reality will be made to conform to MORALISM-Pharisaism; humanity must bow down to “mother earth,” etc. Homosexuality helps the effort of anti-humanity and de-population, after all.

    Get with it people: u and we are being EXTERMINATED, but “don’t worry” it’s all for our own good–inasmuch as it’s for sake of “moralism” which is the new God–which now tweaks and dictates against TRUTH of Christ (Gosp. JOHN 14:6, etc.), hence Aristotelian objectivity, necessary criterion thereto.

    And what’s “moral”?–whatever the arbiters at the top SUBJECTIVISTICALLY say it is, this being Jews and queers, obviously–subjectivism for sake of subjectivism, AGAINST objectivity, truth, reality, reason, logic, the white race, and ESPECIALLY Christians–the real Christians who are anti-semites (anti-Talmud, as Gosp. MARK 7:1-13). Thus ZOG-Mammon empire-of-lies evermore reduces-to-absurd.

    What’s the ACTIVE socio-biologic mechanism?–simple, it’s the mass of Jew-friendly, hubristic, moralistic goons, inferiors, weaklings, suckers, and dupes who’ve been bred up by the previous race of conquerors and producers of 18th and 19th centuries (and a few fm 20th too, I’m sure) being culled, exterminated, and killed-off by present race of Jew-led PARASITES and disease-of-opportunity.

    Thus when the slaves and goons have been eliminated (de-populated, for the good of the “environment”) the now CYCLICALLY over-populated parasites will begin to falling-out–as we see happening (somewhat) btwn afore-mentioned “left” CFR-Bilderberg (see TheNewAmerican.com and AugustReview.com for expo/ref.) conspirators behind United Nations, and the “right” Zionists, Israeli terror-state, and “Judeo-Christian” (JC–see Whtt.org and TruthTellers.org for expo/ref.) hereticalists, JCs not caring as long as they keep getting their funding fm Jew over-lords.

    CONCLUSION: So humanity must re-group against psychopathic Jews and homosexuals steadily destroying civilization behind their COUNTERFEITING scam; people need desperately and urgently to DROP this pretension to Pelagianistic moralism-Pharisaism: there is no “good-evil” which is merely for children and dogs. “Intellectuals” like Ron Paul (and perhaps Prof. MacDonald too) must drop fascination w. abstract intellect and relate w. the honest volk who are CHRISTIAN–not JC. We most urgently need JEW-EXPULSION–as of St. Constantine the Great. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

    Glenn Greenwald, a Constitutional lawyer and journalist writes about Kagan here:

    Elena Kagan by Glenn Greenwald

    …there was no daylight between Ms. Kagan, who was the dean of Harvard Law School, and Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, as he led her through a six-minute colloquy about the president’s broad authority to detain enemy combatants [without due process (aka habeas corpus) protections of law codified in the Magna Carta]. . . . Indeed, there was so much adulation in the air from Republicans that one Democrat, Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, joked at the hearing that she understood how Ms. Kagan “managed to get a standing ovation” from the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group.

    Does that sound like an appropriate choice to replace Justice Stevens?

    There won’t be any questions about Kagan’s qualifications, expertise or intellect — she’s exceptionally smart and knowledgeable — and she largely holds positions on social issues, such as a solid pro-choice and pro-gay record, that will be pleasing to progressive constituencies.

    Wow, Kevin, it’s all doom and gloom around these parts right now. I thought both worthless political parties were equal in their hatred of whites until Sailer and Buchanan pointed out that “W” appointed 2 brilliant white conservatives – who completely disagreed with GWB’s own Justice Department over the Ricci case, etc. As “W” and Rove destroyed the Republican Party, they still had to deal with the intellectual Robert Bork wing of conservatism, which continues to have a profound influence on Republican judicial nominees.
    Sotomayor and Kagan (and whoever else the Ashkenazi press promote) are completely despicable. Is that enough to make a patriot vote for a Republican presidential candidate like Dole, Bush or McCain?
    The Republican base has consistently wanted a Goldwater, not a Rockefeller; a Buchanan, not a Dole; and maybe next time a Ron Paul, not a Romney.
    I’ll do whatever I can to get an A3P candidate on the ballot if the Republicans spit in our face again. We need an alternative.

    Ernst Rohm wasn’t public about his sexuality. He therefore didn’t legitimize Homosexuality and undermine any morally useful taboos against it.

    I knew a fellow who kept stacks of Dr MacDonald’s The Culture of Critique(hardcover edition) in the trunk of his car. When he felt a person he was talking to was ready for the next level he would take a copy out and give it, gratis, to the person. Now that is effective education efforts. The man is a homosexual. Not someone who flaunts it or the usual negative stuff one associates with that predilection. Brilliant, informed, and yes, I would suggest a bit “bitchy” but overall a PLUS for our people. Yet I would wager most homosexuals are leftist. I also think there is a big difference between male homosexuals and the masculine female homosexuals, predatory, dangerous to the family unit.

    As has been pointed out elsewhere in a German magazine, the NS were not hostile to citizens that were homosexual as much as opposed any interaction with youngsters and exhibiting behavior to the general public.

    NS Germany was so misunderstood, on purpose.
    For example Adolf Hitler personally had approved of a loyal German, who was Jewish, to be a General. An entire book, with photos, has been published about the Jews in Wehrmacht etc and how their families, as well, were given clearance.

    Everything the average American knows about NS Germany is, basically, a LIE, and one could begin with the Biggest Lie.

    Key Theme Is CYCLE (And Phase) Of History, Socio-Biology; Everything Else Is Mere Details
    (Apollonian, 13 Apr 10)

    “O’Meara”: everything about u queers is always soooooo half-baked–all u ever try to be doing is faking and acting and pretending–like that u’re a real human being w. modicum of reason or honesty, and in ur case, that hey, u’re a queer who’s actually anti-semitic, or whatever. Also, as we see, u like to pretend u know something about history, as we note by ur little tid-bits about Ernst Rohm.

    But queers are those (a) obsessed, only to varying degrees, and (b) hedonists, lusting for that sense gratification. U’re not capable of genuine intellect–only the faking thereof, as we see u doing soooo desperately. I observe queers almost always end up as gross alcoholics.

    So now u bring up Hitler and Rohm–and “white nationalism” (WN) which WN is actually just gross, huge Jew front attempting to steal thunder fm us real, original anti-semites, Christians, the real thing–NOT these putrid scum, called “Judeo-Christians” behind Hagee, Robertson, Graham, and the totally degenerate R.C. church of pedophiles.

    So then let me set u to rest for large history regarding ur topics: First, remember the over-all, thematic, determinist, CYCLIC “Decline of the West,” by Oswald Spengler, degenerating specifically in the moralism-Pharisaism (Pelagianism) of progenitors, J.J. Rousseau, Immanuel Kant (especially), and Eng. Utilitarianism.

    Hitler, unfortunately endorsed socialist collectivism and under-lying altruist ethics, along w. German volk, so sadly, so tragically. But otherwise, Hitler was keen observer and political-psychologic analyst, without a doubt.

    Meantime, Jew bankers of London and New York–who had definitively taken control of world since Napoleonic wars–wanted a war to consolidate world gov. of United Nations (UN–see Perloff, “The Shadows of Power”), so they HEAVILY FUNDED Hitler and Nazis (see the Poole’s work, “Who Financed Hitler?” and Anthony C. Sutton, “Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler”), knowing and confident they could manipulate things once Hitler took power within Germany.

    Look how easily “bankers” got stupid Poles to start definitive war. See Hoggan’s “The Forced War.”

    For “bankers” had their INVINCIBLE WEAPON: that COUNTERFEITING scam known as US Federal Reserve Bank which (nearly) TOTALLY controlled mass-corporate “Jews”-media, able to buy all and any politicians–anyone they couldn’t buy they’d simply assassinate (like Huey Long, US Senator fm Louisiana)–precisely as they do today.

    And so then, u see, dear queer James, such COUNTERFEITING is able to seek out and find all/any weaknesses–including queers like Rohm who was just a “cog” in the large corrupt machine, channeling all necessary funding, as to Hitler.

    GERMANY (and West) WAS DOOMED fm the very first, LONG BEFORE HITLER or Rohm–for it’s all part of DETERMINIST CYCLE of history and socio-biology.

    And so present Western degeneration will simply continue until the forest-fire of mysticism and irrationality–esp. that putrid Pelagianist moralism-Pharisaism–burns itself out. Thus we see the COUNTERFEIT scam is beginning to run-out of steam, US Dollar getting ready to collapse, on verge of HYPER-inflation.

    CONCLUSION: What we need to save us is definitive JEW-EXPULSION and Christian revolution as of St. Constantine the Great. We only now need enough folks to snap-out of their mental fog to be able to see present crass, putrid, stinking CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY consisting of COUNTERFEITERS at top, along w. queer suck-alongs (like u), and illegal aliens, organized by bolsheviki and critically enabled by KEY, JC hereticalists who urgently need to be dealt w. first and most. Remove these stupid JCs, and Jew disease will soon be history. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

    Proper “Education” Requires Far More Than Merely Handing Someone A Book
    (Apollonian, 13 Apr 10)

    “Shiva”: u really know very little–u DON’T “educate” by mere means of handing off a book to someone and telling them, “read this.” Lots of people have been given Bibles, but they still search for understanding of Christ. Same for lots of books that have been handed out.

    Regarding queers, note I’ve (above) already covered them–Like for Jews, we do better the fewer of them there are–for they’re sick, psychotic, obsessed “puppies.” Jews are monstrosities, like typhus, leprosy, and bubonic plague, which need eradicating.

    Rather, u must be able to SPEAK, extemporaneously, in ur own words, what it is any book or subject-matter is supposedly all about. Only then might the book be actually any good for reference.

    Second, even such lecturing is usually not enough–for u need DIALECTIC: u must be able to handle and answer any questions ur interlocutor may have and put. That’s why present era of blog-art on mighty internet is so horrendous for the Jew psychopathic criminals who rule our present culture.

    Thus we see “education” consists of conveying the universal thought (concept), capable of demonstrating the universal as it exists for all (or at least enough of) the circumstances and CONCRETES subsumed–this can usually only best be done by means of dialectic–and that’s why we appreciate teachers like Prof. MacDonald.

    CONCLUSION: Thus “education” is only accomplished by means of practice and application in actual experience. For a book only attempts to detail, describe, and map-out the universals involved–it provides ONLY the THEORY. Actual, practical experience is absolutely necessary thing which then provides only real CONFIRMATION, hence finished “education.” Now go, and sin no more. Honest elections and death to the Fed.
