In the past week, three of President Obama's most objectionable nominees had confirmation hearings in the U.S. Senate. They are:
David Ogden, nominated to the high-ranking post of Deputy Attorney General of the United States . As a private attorney, Ogden worked for the ACLU and filed a brief in the landmark abortion case Planned Parenthood v. Casey that denied the existence of adverse mental health effects of abortion on women. Ogden has also been one of the nation's most prominent porn defense attorneys, representing not only Playboy and Penthouse, but also PHE, Inc., the largest distributor of hardcore pornography in the United States.
Thomas Perrelli is Obama's nominee for Associate Attorney General at the Justice Department. Perrelli won media attention as the attorney for Michael Schiavo, the Florida man who defeated Terri Schiavo's family in their desperate attempt to keep her from being brutally starved and dehydrated to death at Michael's insistence. Terri Schiavo collapsed under mysterious circumstances and was denied rehabilitation after funds won in a court settlement were allegedly diverted by Michael Schiavo for other uses.
Elena Kagan, although well-credentialed as the dean of Harvard Law School, is the Obama choice for Solicitor General, a post so powerful its occupant is often called the "10th Supreme Court justice." Kagan has never argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, but she is most prominently associated with an 8-0 court ruling against her position in Rumsfeld v. FAIR (2006). She and other law school officials sued to overturn the Solomon amendment, adopted by Congress to ensure that law schools could not use homosexual rights rules to deny U.S. Armed Forces recruiters access to law school campuses.
The U.S. Senate will vote soon on these key appointments that will determine U.S. legal policy for years to come. These appointments have a legacy of championing abortion on demand, legalized obscenity, special rights for homosexuals, and euthanasia.
Please contact your two U.S. senators today and tell them that these nominees should not go forward. Votes may occur in the next 72 hours -- please act now and forward this alert to at least three friends.
Thank you and God bless you.
