As President Obama’s radical nominees are being presented for confirmation, it appears there are three qualifications to be nominated to key judicial and federal posts in the post-nuclear option Senate: 1) Be Barack Obama’s ideological clone, 2) Be a radical Leftist, and/or 3) Have experience in defrauding the American people in some significant way.
According to a Senate schedule released by Senator Mitch McConnell’s office, tomorrow Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid plans to go nuclear on as many as ten (10!) of Barack Obama’s radical nominees for high office or life-time appointments to the federal judiciary.
Among those Harry Reid is trying to get confirmed are federal judges and key bureaucrats, some of whom we have previously opposed and were repeatedly rejected, before the minority party’s voice was steamrollered by Reid’s “nuclear option.”
Adding to Tuesday’s confirmation of Patricia Millett to totally shift the D.C. court of appeals to the left is Cornelia “Nina” Pillard.
Pillard has said that abortion frees women, pregnancy is like slavery, and abstinence education is unconstitutional because it is “permeated…with sex-based double standards about acceptable male and female sexual behavior.” She believes abortion is a constitutional right. She is also an advocate of transnational law that threatens our Constitution’s sovereignty. She may be the most radical judge ever nominated to a lifetime seat at the appellate level!
Liberty Counsel Action strongly opposes the nomination of “Nina” Pillard – and the tyrannical actions of Barack Obama in stacking the court that rules on his administration’s matters and actions!
Jeh Charles Johnson to be Secretary of Homeland Security.
Johnson has been noted as being among the key architects of the Obama administration’s counterterrorism and military policies. His key report to Congress was among those cited in the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
It’s reported that Johnson himself donated more than $100,000 to Barack Obama’s election efforts and is considered among the biggest fundraisers for Obama’s campaigns. Now it’s time for Obama to return the favor.
Chai Rachel Feldblum to be a Member of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Feldblum is credited with being the mind behind the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. She is President Obama’s first openly homosexual commissioner of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Feldblum has been notable in her role as a leader of the LGBT movement to remove Christian morality from the laws of our nation.
Deborah Lee James, of Virginia, to be Secretary of the Air Force.
According to a report in the New York Daily News, “President Obama’s nominee for Secretary of the Air Force was in charge of “corporate responsibility” at defense giant Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) when federal prosecutors arrested two of that company’s executives and several other contractors for fraud in the $700 million CityTime payroll project.
The CityTime scandal involved a technology update for New York City’s payroll and accounting systems, and brought a $500 million dollar fine in penalties and restitution to SAIC – thought to be the largest resolution of contract fraud for a state or municipality ever. Deborah James was responsible for SAIC oversight at the time, although she was not personally indicted.”
James has no military experience whatsoever but has vast experience living off defense contracts.
These are the kinds of people Barack Obama and the Leftist Democrats want to rule in the courts and establish federal agency policies over the next three years and beyond!
We have less than 24 hours to tell our senators to oppose this dangerous group of radical nominees.
The votes on these nominations are expected to begin at 1:00 p.m. Thursday, unless a reported Republican strategy to significantly delay the votes by holding the floor for an extended period of time takes place.
The minority party’s delaying tactic is said to be designed to bring attention to Harry Reid’s outrageous employment of the “nuclear strategy” and the resulting fundamental change in Senate rules.
Today, take a moment to utilize the powerful LCA Fax Barrage system to tell Harry Reid, your two state senators, and other key members of the senior chamber that you oppose the partisan ramrodding of these radical and scandalous nominees through the Senate.
Our sources on Capitol Hill tell us that our Fax Barrages make a real difference. If we can impact the votes of five senators, we will have success! In any case, these elected officials will know in no uncertain terms that they will be held accountable for their votes.
To retreat or take no action will mean a total political victory for Barack Obama and Harry Reid, the further destruction of our nation, and the shredding of our Constitution.
As Edmund Burke famously said, “all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” We must not allow evil to triumph! Please, do not do sit by and do nothing.
Unless the American people speak out to our elected officials, every one of President Obama’s nominees will have an unobstructed path to confirmation. This is not the time for us to remain silent.
Please, order your faxes today. These are dangerous nominees being put in place to shape America in Barack Obama’s image – please go here to make your voice heard.
I am very grateful to all of you who have taken action or will do so today. God bless you for standing against President Obama’s agenda-driven, reckless nominees for high offices!
