The ACLU’s new “expanded” plans (Liberty Counsel)

Save Our Courts, Save Our Nation

From the Desk Of:
Mat Staver, Chairman,
Liberty Counsel

A few weeks ago, I told you about the ACLU’s plans for the Trump era. As of yesterday, their agenda just became FAR WORSE.

Anthony Romero, the Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union  (ACLU) posted the leftist organization’s “expansion plan to fight Trump policies” on their website.  Their ability to rapidly expand is due to the “$79 million in new contributions since the election.” This anti-religious, anti-family organization now poses a greater threat than ever to our core values and the protection of religious liberty. See my important message below coupled with my emergency call for support – Mat.

Just three weeks into the new Trump administration, and the ACLU has already launched what may be the largest, most aggressive anti-faith, anti-family legal assault in our nation’s history.
Infused with $79 million in new donations, the ACLU announced yesterday that, “There is no limit to how big a resistance to Trump we can build at the ACLU.” One of the ACLU’s latest efforts is tying up President Trump’s immigration order in court.

Among their announced plans:

• “[T]o spend over $40 million to build up our state offices … 100 new ACLU staff positions in places where litigators and advocates can make a real difference.
• [T]o spend over $13 million to build a grassroots member-mobilization program. With the surge of new members, we now have a growing army of people who don’t just want to write a check. They want to join the fight.
• [T]o spend over $21 million to hire new lawyers, advocates, and other staff in the headquarters of the ACLU to strengthen the core functioning of the headquarters.”

The ACLU website listed targeted states as, “Florida, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Georgia” as their “critical states,” and “Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, and Virginia” as “second tier of priority states.”
At the core of their plan:

“At the very least, if we carpet-bomb the Trump administration with lawsuits, we can rob it of momentum and gum up the machinery of its anti-civil liberties and anti-civil rights agenda. This litigation is expensive and time-consuming. The average case takes between two and three years, with some lasting a decade or more. As we ramp up our litigation and advocacy, we need to have the staying power to keep after President Trump all four years and beyond.”

+ + Litigation is expensive!

The shocking reality is that the ACLU’s post-election war chest has already DOUBLED, and then DOUBLED AGAIN, and then DOUBLED AGAIN! And, yes, as you also know from our own messaging to you, “litigation is expensive and time-consuming.”

Liberty Counsel is one of the leading voices for life, liberty, and family. Our attorneys go head-to-head against the ACLU in courtrooms all across the country. Even though we fight with a fraction of the funding of the ACLU, time and again we win! And we never charge our clients for representation!

I urgently need your help.

That is why I’m asking for your help right now to help Liberty Counsel fight the ACLU and other secularist organizations Through our Save Our Courts, Save Our Nation campaign.

While this campaign is designed to help us first restore our nation’s Supreme Court by endorsing the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch as a Justice, we will carry over this initiative to urge the confirmation of lower-court judges who are constitutional-based jurists – and not judicial activists. Your special gift will also help Liberty Counsel STAND AGAINST THE ACLU’S ATTACKS and continue other vital efforts.

Please prayerfully consider making your best possible tax-deductible gift right now by clicking here.

Because we have the truth on our side, we can fight back with a fraction of the funds the ACLU is amassing.  Can you help me meet this critical need today? I must expand our legal efforts immediately to fight back against the ACLU’s radical agenda.

Thank you so much for your prayers, and for your ongoing support.

Mat Staver

P.S. Now is the time to return this country to the rule of law through which judges interpret the original meaning of the Constitution and the laws before them. That’s what we are seeking for our nation on all levels of the judiciary.
