Should Elena Kagan be approved as a justice to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States?
As it turns out there's a supremely simple method of testing her suitability. Once applied, citizens of any political persuasion will see that her nomination should be rejected outright.
As Solicitor General of the United States, Kagan argued against an appeal to the Supreme Court by former Alabama Governor, Don Siegelman in November, 2009. The Siegelman prosecution is viewed by many as one of the gravest injustices of the modern era, a purely political prosecution initiated by the Gonzales Justice Department.
Forty four former state attorneys general were so concerned that they issued a public petition on Siegelman's behalf in 2007. The petition to the United States House of Representatives urged prompt investigation of the many shady dealings in the Siegelman case, before, during and after his trial. They framed their petition in this simple sentence: "The U.S. justice system should be above reproach." It wasn't.

My articles cover politics and the financial and environmental implications of our consumer society and I make a prima facie case that:
The Federal Reserve isn’t evil because they print our money and make us pay interest on the principal,
They are evil because, until October of 2008, the monetary policy that created money out of “thin air”, so we could live the American Dream, put humanity at the “unknown points of no return.”
According to the GEO4, a massive United Nations report, the planet is in “dire environmental straits and we have probably passed the “unknown points of no return” because humanity’s footprint [its environmental demand] is 21.9 hectares per person while the Earth’s biological capacity is, on average, only 15.7 ha/person.”
There are only three possibilities for how we passed the “unknown points of no return”, and the first two make no sense:
We probably passed the “unknown points of no return” because our last President Bush was deadly serious when, after rejecting the global climate change targets of the July 2008 G8 summit, he said, "Goodbye, from the (then) world's biggest polluter."
George W. Bush connected to the Federal Reserve and TGFE, while president lost the war on terrorism and the war in Iraq, but was winning the war waged on the environment.
Therefore, you might conclude I have a tin-foil hat conspiracy theory for those scoundrels behind the Federal Reserve and TGFE convincing us to go shopping for useless toxic “stuff”.
But to suppose a conspiracy to environmentally damage and pollute the planet taking into consideration, national, international, state, regional and local governments then adjusting for the intricacies of population diversity, mentality and attitudes with all its inimitable contrivances, that an ecocide conspiracy could have been orchestrated by TGFE, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.

Why does the US Federal Government continue to allow British Petroleum (BP), a serial criminal among oil companies, to control the biggest crime scene in American history?!
Why hasn’t the Barack Obama Administration (BOA) simply taken complete control of the situation, moved BP out of the way and capped the well, permanently?! Instead, they have allowed BP to tell the US victims how and when to clean up BP’s very own crime scene (BP is part of the government-empowered unified command structure currently keeping scientists from doing their work in the Gulf and journalists from photographing oil slicks).
As if sour news in the Gulf and about the economy were not enough, the advent of the summer travel season also brings with it the latest renditions of con artist schemes designed to ruin your day. For those of you who have managed to save in these tough times, you must be doubly aware of the potential for investment fraud. The FBI ascribes over $400 billion in annual losses to this criminal activity alone, and this figure does not include legitimate promotions that trick you into buying overpriced items as if they were valuable collectibles.

Human rights attorney Stewart spent her career observing the American Bar Association's Model Rules, saying all lawyers must:
"devote professional time and resources and use civil influence to ensure equal access to our system of justice for all those who because of economic or social barriers cannot afford or secure adequate legal counsel."
Also to practice law ethically, morally and responsibly to assure everyone gets due process and judicial fairness, what the poor, underprivileged, society's unwanted rarely ever are afforded unless lucky enough to have an advocate like her. What failed her after being bogusly indicted, prosecuted, convicted, and jailed, awaiting final sentencing in July, perhaps later for reasons of health. More on that below.

When a U.S. civilian is murdered in a foreign land or in the United States, we rightfully feel angry, sad, and some of us demand vengeance. These are normal, primordial, and instinctive feelings of group loyalty and herd mentality that have bound communities and countries for thousands of years. Should such human traits, which are often beneficial, emotional and irrational, continue to justify the retaliatory killing of innocent civilians in the 21st century?
After the tragic murder of nearly 3,000 U.S. citizens on 9/11, the United States toppled the Taliban in Afghanistan and killed and captured hundreds of al-Qaeda leaders and members. However, Afghanistan lost as many as 32,000 citizens since the U.S. invasion in 2001.
In a 18 June 2010 report Amnesty International accused the Israeli authorities of subjecting jailed nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment by holding him in solitary confinement. The 56-year-old, who spent 18 years in prison for revealing details of the country's nuclear arsenal to a UK newspaper in 1986, was sent back to jail for three months on 23 May on charges of contact with a foreign national, and almost immediately placed in solitary confinement.
Amnesty International has called for his immediate and unconditional release.
"Mordechai Vanunu should not be in prison at all, let alone be held in solitary confinement in a unit intended for violent criminals," said Malcolm Smart, Director of Amnesty International's Middle East Programme.
“We categorically reject Christian Zionist doctrines as a false teaching that corrupts the biblical message of love, justice and reconciliation” – The Jerusalem Declaration
Not all Jews are Zionists. Many reject the Zionist project and fight against it.
So why on earth would a non-Jew wish to be one? Indeed, how could a genuine Christian seriously consider becoming a Zionist? It has puzzled me for a long time. The two ideas are incompatible, are they not?
