The seven Republican Senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee can STOP KAGAN'S CONFIRMATION by invoking Rule IV. of the Senate Judiciary Committee Rules, and BLOCKING THE VOTE right in the Committee.
PLEASE CALL THE WASHINGTON, D.C. OFFICES OF THE SEVEN REPUBLICAN SENATORS ON THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
After their recess, after U.S. Senators on the Judiciary Committee return July 12 to the Capitol in Washington, D.C., there will be the question of actually voting on the Elena Kagan nomination in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
However, if the seven Republican Senators choose to truly uphold their oaths, and do all in their power to BLOCK the appointment of this dangerous nominee, this domestic enemy of the written United States Constitution, Elena Kagan , the Rules of the Senate Judiciary Committee [ Rule IV. BRINGING A MATTER TO A VOTE ] require that at least one Republican vote in favor of bringing the Kagan nomination to a vote. That means one of these seven would have to be a "Benedict Arnold" - and betray their Oath of Office and their country: Sessions (AL), Hatch (UT), Grassley (IA), Kyl (AZ), Graham (SC), Cornyn (TX), and Coburn (OK) - however if all seven will stand firm and vote against bringing confirmation of the Kagan nomination to a vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee - then the Kagan confirmation can be BLOCKED right in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Please call the seven Republican Senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee at their Washington, D.C. offices as soon as possible (the Senators themselves are on break this week, but the Senate offices are open and staffed), and tell them you are asking each and every Senator to invoke Rule IV. of the Senate Judiciary Committee Rules, which means that unless at least one minority party (i.e. Republican) member agrees to end debate and to bring a matter to vote, then the Kagan confirmation cannot even be voted upon. In other words, this is the equivalent of a Committee-level filibuster, and as long as all seven Republican Senators vote against ending debate and bringing the matter to a vote, then KAGAN'S CONFIRMATION CAN BE STOPPED RIGHT IN THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE !!!
Rules of Procedure United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary:
IV. BRINGING A MATTER TO A VOTE
The Chairman shall entertain a non-debatable motion to bring a matter before the Committee to a vote. If there is objection to bring the matter to a vote without further debate, a roll call vote of the Committee shall be taken, and debate shall be terminated if the motion to bring the matter to a vote without further debate passes with ten votes in the affirmative, one of which must be cast by the minority.
This is yet another opportunity for incumbent Republicans to show whether they are worth having in office. It is great that Senators Sessions, Kyl, Cornyn, and Coburn, for example, asked judicial activist, pro-abortion, pro-sodomite, anti-Christ, feminist Solicitor General Elena Kagan tough questions during the confirmation hearings on June 29 and June 30, and to the extent she even really answered the questions (or by her record and non-answers when she did not), her anti-Constitutional views, positions, and record were exposed, to a greater or lesser extent. However, that was all words - now is coming the time for the VOTE - are these seven Republican Senators going to use the procedural tool that is available to them within the scope of their authority and power, to protect America and the American people from this domestic enemy of the U.S. Constitution ?!! If not, then those of these seven who will not, do not need to be re-elected to office when their present term expires.
Senators Sessions (AL), Hatch (UT), Grassley (IA), Kyl (AZ), Graham (SC), Cornyn (TX), and Coburn (OK) - WILL YOU UPHOLD YOUR OATHS OF OFFICE, AND PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES FROM THIS DOMESTIC ENEMY, ELENA KAGAN ? - OR WILL YOU REFUSE TO INVOKE RULE IV. AND ALLOW HER CONFIRMATION TO PASS OUT OF THE THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, ONE STEP CLOSER TO A LIFETIME APPOINTMENT TO THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES, WHERE SHE CAN SHRED THE CONSTITUTION (as now JUSTICE SONIA SOTOMAYOR HAS ALREADY STARTED TRYING TO DO - e.g., Citizens United free speech case - the first Supreme Court case argued by Solicitor General Elena Kagan), AND PUT AT FURTHER RISK THE LIFE, LIBERTIES, AND PROPERTY OF AMERICAN CITIZENS ?!!
Please call the seven Republican Senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee as soon as possible, today (July 8), Friday (July 9), and Monday (July 12), and inform them of your request that they invoke Rule IV. of the Senate Judiciary Committee Rules, and BLOCK the vote on confirmation of the Kagan nomination to a lifetime appointment to the United States Supreme Court.
