Obama re-nominates left wing radical Caitlin Halligan to DC court of appeals after being blocked – anti gun, anti pro life

obama-boogerAfter left wing radical Caitlin Halligan was blocked for more than a year because of her extremist ideology, Obama has yet again nominated the New York State Solicitor General Caitlin Halligan to the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Caitlin Halligan is an anti Second Amendment, anti pro life Marxist, aka she is your typical card carrying member of the Democrat party.

The National Rifle Association opposed the Halligan nomination in a Dec. 5, 2011 letter to senators. The organization cited her representing New York state in a lawsuit against gun manufacturers in 2001, and her opposition to a federal law passed in 2005 to block lawsuits against gun manufacturers.

“Our opposition is based on Ms. Halligan’s attacks on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans. Specifically, she worked to undermine the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), enacted in 2005 with strong bipartisan support,” said the letter to senators signed by NRA Executive Director Chris Cox.

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, expressed opposition to Halligan because of briefs she filed in other court cases, in particular the case of Scheidler v. National Organization for Women, in which NOW wanted to use the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act against pro-life protestors on the grounds that it interrupted with commerce. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the case in 2006.

“She filed amicus briefs that consistently took activist positions on controversial issues such as abortion, affirmative action, immigration, and federalism,” Grassley said in a statement before giving examples.

      If the Republicans are still here in 2014; they are burying themselves SLOWLY, but surely. Blockage and obstruction can only last so long and then, the pendelum swings back and with that ‘swing back’ comes GREAT FORCE…you are you familar with that scientific principle? Not too may Republicans are.

    Anyone to the left of Robert Bork is a radical in the eyes of this GOP….The GOP has gone so far right, Anthony Kennedy would be filibustered if he were nominated today..
    Like Bill Maher said, “the democrats have moved to the center, and the repubicans have moved to the insane asylum”..
