“The end of the world as we know it” (Liberty Counsel Action)

The Left’s hysteria has reached historic levels over the perceived disaster should Judge Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed by the Senate to fill retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy’s seat. 

NPR’s Supreme Court Reporter, Nina Totenberg, actually said “it’s the end of the world as we know it.” 

In reality, the hysteria and hyperbole are fearmongering tactics used by the Left to intimidate the American people, as evidenced in a recent report by Townhall.com…

“Sen. Blumenthal (D-Conn.) suggested that virtually all life on Earth is threatened: ‘The first point is to take it to the American people to show them what’s at stake, to mobilize them and say to them your health care rights and protection against precondition abuses is at stake, clean air and water that you use and breathe is at stake, the future of your rights to reproduction decisions is at stake and also to our colleagues.’

MSNBC contributor Al Sharpton cryptically cautioned: ‘All human and civil rights are at stake.’

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) predicted presidential abuses of authority will become greater: ‘What’s at stake are [Americans’] constitutional rights, the protection against the abuses of power by the president, by Congress, by corporate America and reversing the long-standing precedents of the Supreme Court.’

Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) said the next SCOTUS justice will likely mean ‘the destruction of the Constitution.'”

The irony of these outlandish assertions is that their hero, Barack Obama, was among our nation’s chief offenders of presidential overreach. He also appointed activist Justices to use the High Court as a bully to enact social change that he couldn’t get through the legislature. In their eyes, the Constitution must be adapted to support their ideology. 

+ + “Liberals find our founding document most inconvenient”

Rick Moran nailed the reasons for the Left’s hysteria in American Thinkercom

“What is really at risk for the left – and what really scares leftists – is that the Supreme Court will no longer act as an unelected legislature, creating precedents and law divorced from the original intent of the Constitution. Liberals find our founding document most inconvenient.”

+ + Facts are stubborn things

It is the right of the people, not judges, to amend the Constitution and the laws.

As Brett Kavanaugh declared in his nomination acceptance,

“My judicial philosophy is straightforward.  A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law.  A judge must interpret statutes as written. And a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent.

I believe that an independent judiciary is the crown jewel of our constitutional republic. If confirmed by the Senate, I will keep an open mind in every case, and I will always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American Rule of Law.”

I strongly endorse the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Liberty Counsel Action has now launched our Supreme Court Liberty campaign to rally at least 100,000 citizens to advance the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the High Court.

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.

+ + The war against Judge Kavanaugh is in full attack mode! 

Many Senate Democrats are declaring war on Kavanugh, not based on his impeccable qualifications, but on his perceived threat to their far-Left ideologies.

Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe tweeted: “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.”

Sen. Schumer vowed that he will oppose Kavanaugh’s appointment “with everything I’ve got.” Sen. Bernie Sanders tweeted, “We must do everything we can to stop this nomination.”

The Left’s demonization of Judge Kavanaugh should be evidence enough that he is the kind of judge we need on the bench. If you agree, click here to add your name to Liberty Counsel Action’s call to “Confirm Judge Kavanaugh Now!”

God bless you,
