President Trump scheduled Monday night at 9 ET for the announcement of his Supreme Court nominee. He told reporters on Air Force One, “I think I have it down to four people. And I think of the four people, I have it down to three or two.”
+ + Democrats are already mobilizing to derail the nominee, whoever he or she is.
As reported by VOX, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is “aiming to leverage flashpoint issues like abortion and health care to gin up public pressure on some of the lawmakers who sit a bit closer to the center. ‘I’d like to see massive marches and rallies and protests,’ he said during a recent town hall teleconference, per WNYC.”
In a New York Times op-ed, the Senate Minority Leader wrote that “Our rights hang in the balance” with this Supreme Court seat. “Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement has created the most important vacancy on the Supreme Court in our lifetimes. Whoever fills Justice Kennedy’s seat will join an evenly divided court with the ability to affect the laws of the United States and the rights of its citizens for generations. Enormously important issues hang in the balance,” which Schumer lists, among others, as same-sex marriage, abortion, and ObamaCare.
Senator Schumer is correct that “our rights hang in the balance” with President Trump’s SCOTUS pick for this “important vacancy.”
+ + An incredibly contentious battle lies just ahead!
Our Liberty Counsel Action team is gearing up for this inevitable showdown. This month, we’ll launch our Supreme Court Liberty campaign to rally at least 100,000 citizens to defend the President’s right to nominate the next conservative justice to the Court. And we are pushing back against the agents of intolerance who are trying to destroy this President and anyone who dares to stand with his pro-faith, pro-life, and pro-America agenda.
If you agree that “our rights hang in the balance” and that we must have a strong voice for liberty in our nation’s capital, please go here now to make your best possible gift to help Liberty Counsel Action fight these and other key battles:
Supreme Court vacancies, which are very rare, are among the most important examples of why elections have consequences! Just look at the rulings prior Supreme Courts have thrust on the American people, including Roe v. Wade.
Yes, Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement may very well have created “the most important vacancy on the Supreme Court in our lifetimes.” And, this summer could be the most critical time we have faced in defending liberty. That’s why our Liberty Counsel Action team must stay on point. But to do so, I need your help.
God bless you,
Mat Staver, President
