Our rights hang in the balance (Liberty Counsel Action)

In a New York Times op-ed, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wrote, “Our rights hang in the balance” with this soon to be vacant Supreme Court seat. He is certainly correct, but his vision of “rights” and mine are quite different. See my important update below — Mat.

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.”

Early reports indicate the frontrunners to be Judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Thomas Hardiman, and Amy Coney Barrett.

+ + 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.”

With a conservative justice in that seat, we could witness a historic restoration of the rights of people of faith as it relates to the marriage issue, defending life, upholding faith, and honoring the natural family. It would be the most conservative court in 80 years, according to one analyst.

+ + An incredibly contentious battle lies just ahead!

Last fall, Senate Democrats displayed a profound anti-faith bigotry toward Amy Coney Barrett’s deeply held beliefs during her Senate confirmation hearings to the Seventh Circuit Court. Barrett’s contentious confirmation process is just a small foretaste of the measures Senate Democrats are expected to use as they attempt to derail any of President Trump’s SCOTUS nominees.

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:

help fight back

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. 

Please, prayerfully consider how you can stand with Liberty Counsel Action at this critical time. We need you now more than ever.

God bless you,

Mat Staver, President
