On Monday night, President Trump announced Brett Kavanaugh as his choice to fill the seat of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. In his introductory statements, the President said:
Judge Kavanaugh has impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications, and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law…
Throughout legal circles, he is considered a “judge’s judge” — a true thought leader among his peers. He is a brilliant jurist with a clear and effective writing style, universally regarded as one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time.
The Republican response to President Trump’s pick is overwhelmingly favorable…
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY): “President Trump has made a superb choice. Judge Brett Kavanaugh is an impressive nominee who is extremely well qualified to serve as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.”
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (IA): “Judge Kavanaugh is one of the most qualified Supreme Court nominees to come before the Senate. His credentials are well known, and he’s served with distinction as a judge on the esteemed D.C. Circuit for more than a decade. He is a superb mainstream candidate worthy of the Senate’s consideration.”
+ + Democrats were already mobilizing to derail the nominee, whoever “XX” was.
The Women’s March, a stereotypical Left-wing organization, released a statement AFTER the President announced his pick of Kavanaugh, declaring, “In response to Donald Trump’s nomination of XX to the Supreme Court…” The statement was obviously written to oppose whoever the President nominated before his announcement.
The demonization of Judge Kavanaugh is now in full attack mode with four primary talking points by members of the Left that you’ll hear over, and over, and over again…
• Kavanaugh will end “abortion rights.”
• Kavanaugh threatens voting rights.
• Kavanaugh will be the deciding vote ending ObamaCare and so-called affordable healthcare.
• Kavanaugh is a threat to the Mueller investigation of President Trump. Therefore, a sitting President under federal investigation should not be allowed to nominate a Justice that could influence the case. Leftists are calling for Sen. McConnell to delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation until the Mueller investigation is completed.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer went so far as to say that President Trump chose Kavanaugh over others in order to act as a “barrier” to Robert Mueller’s investigation of the President.
+ + An incredibly contentious battle lies just ahead!
Sen. Kamala Harris: Trump’s Supreme Court Justice nominee, Judge Kavanaugh, represents a direct and fundamental threat to the rights and health care of hundreds of millions of Americans.
Sen. Bernie Sanders: If Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court it will have a profoundly negative effect on workers’ rights, women’s rights and voting rights for decades to come. We must do everything we can to stop this nomination.
And possibly the most outrageous…
Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe: “The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come and will morph our Supreme Court into a political arm of the right-wing Republican Party.”
Our Liberty Counsel Action team is gearing up for this showdown. We are launching our Supreme Court Liberty campaign to rally at least 100,000 citizens to defend the President’s constitutional right to nominate Judge Kavanaugh to the High 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 Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed as soon as possible, please go here to sign our “Confirm Judge Kavanaugh Now” petition that will be delivered to key members of the Senate as soon as we have 25,000 signers as the initial launching point.
+ + President Trump’s nominee of Brett Kavanaugh for the critical vacancy on the Supreme Court could shape America’s legal landscape for decades.
I support the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. As he has repeatedly stated, his judicial philosophy is simple – judges must interpret the law, not make it. It is the right of the people, not judges, to amend the Constitution and the laws. Judge Kavanaugh is the kind of judge we need on the bench.

God bless you,
Mat Staver, President
