Extremist Caitlin Halligan Withdraws from Court Nomination

Republicans scored a big victory over Barack Obama and his extremist, anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment nomination to the federal appeals court: Caitlin Halligan.

Republicans said the ultra-liberal and radical Halligan was an activist judge who flaunted the law by working to undermine American laws in regard to illegal immigrants, as well as worked against the legal manufacturing of guns in America.

Republican leader Mitch McConnell pointed out extreme actions Halligan took when solicitor general for the state of New York. He said in one specific case she attempted to make it legal for the National Labor Relations Board to grant back pay to illegal aliens.

Halligan also said concerning gun manufacturers that they were a big part of the problem of illegal guns in the state of New York. Radical and out-of-touch ideas like this are what stalled her upward move, and she has no one to blame but herself for her outrageous positions.

Considered the second most important court in the land, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit is considered a step from being nominated to the Supreme Court, so there has been an increasing scrutiny over who is nominated.

This is a good sign from the Republicans, who have caved on numerous issues that they didn't need to, as they wrongly interpreted the political winds, which afterwards would have proven to be considered a positive move by the party. As an example, look at the media manipulation and Obama's screed on the effects sequestration would have on the country. Few people even remember it now, and it was never a big deal to the American people.

Republicans need to realize they're on the right side of a lot of issues, and the should have the guts to see many things through till the end.

The Second Amendment and the right to bear arms is one of them. They'll find if they hold steady, once the legislation is rejected, the majority of people in the United States won't care at all, and will consider their stand a principled and courageous one.

Hopefully the blocking of a vote for Halligan resulting in her withdrawing her name for consideration is a step in the right direction for the GOP.
