Take Action: Two justices should recuse themselves from ‘gay’ marriage cases
Monday, January 19, 2015
U.S. Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg should recuse themselves from any cases involving the homosexual marriage issue on the basis that they have conducted same-sex marriage ceremonies.
The justices announced last Friday they will review an appellate ruling that upheld bans on same-sex unions in four states. The case will be argued in April and a decision is expected by late June.
Justice Kagan performed a September 21 same-sex marriage for her former law clerk and his partner Patrick Pearsall in Maryland. Justice Ginsburg performed a same-sex marriage at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC in August 2013.
Both of these justices' personal and private actions actively endorsing gay marriage clearly indicate how they would vote on same-sex marriage cases before the Supreme Court.
Congress has directed that federal judicial officers must disqualify themselves from hearing cases in specified circumstances. Title 28, Section 455 of the United States Code states "any justice, judge, or magistrate judge of the United States shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned."
Both Kagan and Ginsburg have not only been partial to same-sex marriage, they have proven themselves to be activists in favor of it!
In order to ensure the Court's integrity and impartiality, Justices Kagan and Ginsburg must recuse themselves from same-sex marriage cases.
Congress has an obligation to Americans that members of the Supreme Court are held to the highest standard of integrity. The law demands it and the people deserve it.
Urge your members of Congress to privately and publicly call on Justices Kagan and Ginsburg to properly and legally recuse themselves from cases involving same-sex marriage.

A Liberal Conundrum
Weekly Update from Dinesh D'SouzaDear Friends,
In the wake of terror in Paris, we find that Europe is now home to both radical secularism and radical Islam, a toxic combination. This clash of cultures presents a real problem for modern progressives. If a Muslim barber refuses on religious grounds to cut the hair of a lesbian, whose side does a liberal take?
This problem stems from a double standard. Muslims, even radical Muslims that trample on the rights of women and threaten violence against civilization, are a protected class by Western progressives, whereas even nominal Christians have become the object of progressive disdain.
If progressives were to be consistent, they would need to reject Islam as fervently as they reject Christianity, something very few progressives seem to be willing to acknowledge. Bill Maher is a notable exception. In my last appearance on his show, he expressed outrage that liberals are inconsistent in their condemnation of Islam.
The irony of the whole situation, though, is that the liberal, while he can, kowtows to the radical Muslim, but the radical Muslim, if he could, would behead the liberal!
New articles this week indicate that Holder and Obama's justice department may seek an indictment for General Petraeus. I'll let you decide who is the patriot and who is the scoundrel.
Petraeus' real crime was to lead a troop surge in Iraq that worked, frustrating Obama's plans for U.S. withdrawal and defeat. It appears as though Patraeus and the Navy SEAL who shot bin Laden have now joined me on Obama's target list!
On a lighter note, I want to take this opportunity to wish my daughter Danielle the very best—she turned 20 yesterday! How quickly they grow older (and how fortunate that we don't)! Happy Birthday, Danielle!
