In my humble opinion (IMHO), it would be most appropriate for supreme court justice (or injustice IMHO) Elena Kagan to recuse herself from the abortion determinative Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, being as she once violated every code of decency, if not “the law” (IMHO) when she committed the single greatest truly impeachable offense in modern history (again, IMHO), and I still would like to know why Elena Kagan was confirmed to sit on the United States supreme court in the first place and why “injustice” Elena Kagan isn’t impeached yet today.

Obviously the answer back then is the same answer still today: The democrat party is anti-life, anti-liberty and they define “the pursuit of happiness” as licentiousness; and the republican party is filled with cowards, compromisers and communists (IMHO). I rest my case.
Let’s go down memory lane to take a look at an article called When Kagan Played Doctor written by the still reliably left-leaning “national correspondent” at Slate Magazine, William Saletan.
Here’s the cliff notes version of the story.
In 1996 Elena Kagan was an Associate White House counsel who wanted to support the then president’s position on partial-birth abortion. Who was the president? Bill Clinton. That is the same Bill Clinton who was impeached for the valid reasons that he lied under Oath to a federal grand jury and that in doing so, he obstructed justice.
What was his policy position in question?
The Clinton Administration’s policy position was that the ghastly procedure commonly known as partial birth abortion was the best and maybe only option to save a woman’s life or health.
It is verifiably true that Elena Kagan had the requested policy position paper of the American College of OB/GYN changed to include a sentence that she herself wrote that was specifically cited by the then United States supreme court in the year 2000 when they struck down Nebraska’s ban on partial-birth abortions.
Here is the sentence that now (in)justice-of-the-United-States-supreme-court Elena Kagan wrote that was inserted into the American College of OB/GYN’s paper:
“An intact D&X, however, may be the best or most appropriate procedure in a particular circumstance to save the life or preserve the health of a woman, and a doctor should be allowed to make this determination.”
That sentence was a contradiction to what the American College of OB/GYN first wanted to report as their policy position, which was ‘[A] select panel convened by ACOG could identify no Circumstances under which [the partial-birth] Procedure … would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman’ (emphases mine).
Now what exactly is an “intact D&X” – well the baby killers define it as intact dilation and extraction – I call it intact death by extermination.
Call it what you will, the truth remains that a live baby is pulled out of a woman’s womb and murdered.
According to an Abortion Statistical Report published in 2017, there were 4,178 abortions performed in the year 2000 in Nebraska, and 3,982 abortions performed in 2001 (that IMHO might have been prevented if the supreme court ruled based upon the truth back in 2000). You might want to see this report itself … it is 21 pages long.
It categorizes the murder of our American children-of-the-womb by month, by age, by reason, by county, by weight of fetus, by length of fetus …
I ask you, have we become a nation of Dr. Frankensteins?
The Senate Vote that Confirmed Kagan
In the year 2010 when Kagan was confirmed as a justice of the supreme court, there were 57 democrat senators and 41 republican senators. The vote only required a majority 51 to confirm her appointment, so the 5 republicans who voted with the democrats to confirm Kagan were apparently voting their conscience because the democrats didn’t need their votes to advance the confirmation.
Guess who voted Yea to confirm Elena Kagan after they should have known of this truly impeachable offense? South Carolina’s own Senator Lindsay Graham. NOTE: Prior to the senate’s final confirmation vote, I personally sent faxes to every single senator warning them of this violation that should have disqualified her… of course to no avail.
At this point, I want to remind those good Christian conservatives, who have been impressed through the years (to varying degrees) with Lindsay Graham, that he never has been worthy of the American people’s trust and yet, to this day, he continues to keep his coveted senate seat warm, as he has since 2002.
Lindsay Graham won elections in 2002, 2008, 2014 and 2020 in a state, South Carolina, that re-elected flip-flopping Strom Thurmond 8 times before he retired. I guess you can’t fix some things.
Going back down memory lane again, in 1998, Lindsay Graham was the only so-called republican to vote NO on one of four articles of impeachment during Bill Clinton’s trial.
This was the vote on alleged perjury in the Paula Jones case, when Graham is quoted as having said that “he gave Clinton ‘the legal benefit of the doubt’ because of a confusing definition of sexual relations used in the Jones case.”
Was that “confusing definition” that Graham referred to when Clinton incredulously said that “it depends on what the meaning of the word IS is”?
Lindsay Graham has consistently voted in favor of the federal government having increasing authorization to spy on the American people (using the so-called US Patriot Act that even the ACLU says is unconstitutional).
In 2013 Graham threatened to withhold his vote to confirm Obama’s nominees until information about the attack in Benghazi was released.
And yet that same year Graham voted in favor of confirming Obama’s choice for Director of the CIA John Brennan (who admitted to having voted for a communist for President of the United States) and two days after making that 10/28/2013 threat, Graham voted in favor of Obama’s choice for DHS Jeh Johnson (calling him a really well-qualified guy).
This year, Tucker Carlson has commented on the fact that Lindsey Graham is reported to have said that the American citizens (he called them looters) who were in Washington DC on January 6th should be shot by capitol police.
I would suggest that based upon everything that the American people have allowed, are allowing and probably will continue to allow public functionaries like Elena Kagan and/or Lindsay Graham to get away with, we not only have become a nation of Dr. Frankensteins, we are a nation of fools (IMHO).
