“As we fight for the soul of this country, we must save its heartbeat – SCOTUS! Read this important piece and please follow up. If you do nothing this week that is proactive, then you are complicit in the silence that is destroying America. Because without ALL our voices, yes the majority, we are as good as silent! Melanie Nathan, African HRC.
Tomorrow starts one of the most critical days in America’s history as we fight to keep Brett Kavanaugh off the SCOTUS bench. If you do not yet know the stakes, check out the websites of NAACP, Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club and many organizations all concerned, and you will see the heart and soul of America is at stake.
Goodness knows how I got to be on the right wingers press promo list – but I am!
And right now am receiving a barrage of pushes by them, to interview people who are pro-Kavanaugh. The right wing is proudly pushing, yet in a tacit fashion, for fear that anything that seems like a pre-decision on abortion would work against their candidate. They want you to know that he will be there to reverse Roe v Wade. Yet cannot actually say it in actual words.
So I am publishing here, for your edification, the verbiage being used to promote the Brett Kavanaugh as the perfect Judge while we know the true evil intent of the Kavanaugh nomination;
“Hi Melanie – Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings begin TOMORROW — on Tuesday, September 4. The possibility he could vote to overturn Roe v. Wade will be a top line of questioning when Kavanaugh appears before the U.S. Senate panel.
The stakes are high in the Senate battle over Kavanaugh because, if confirmed, he could provide a decisive fifth vote on the nine-justice court to overturn or weaken Roe v. Wade. Doing that would likely prompt many conservative-leaning states to take steps to outlaw abortion altogether. In the run-up to the Kavanaugh hearings, abortion rights groups have held rallies nationwide, while opponents of Roe v. Wade are optimistic that Kavanaugh will be on their side. ”
Among the opponents of Roe v. Wade is Americans United for Life (AUL), the first and most influential pro-life legal advocacy group in the country. AUL’s legal strategists have been involved in every pro-life case before the U.S. Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade. Most recently, AUL’s legal team filed an amici curiae (“friend of the court”) brief in NIFLA v. Becerra on behalf of leading pro-life medical groups.
They go on to say:
AUL President Catherine Glenn Foster is available for interviews from Washington, D.C. Please see a clip of her discussing Kennedy’s retirement and the future of Roe with Dana Perino in July here: Americans United for Life: Time to revisit Roe v. Wade and here in June on HLN with Carol Costello: What is the future for Roe v. Wade?
Additionally, when Kavanaugh became President Trump’s official nominee, AUL launched the column: The Daily Kavanaugh.
….yup….S C A R Y E V I L S H I T !!!!
I am also publishing here the right winger Catherine Foster talking points on Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, taken from a letter AUL sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee, SO THAT WE THE LEFT CAN SEE WHAT WE ARE CONTENDING WITH:
We strongly support Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. AUL is the oldest national pro-life non-profit advocacy organization. Founded in 1971, two years before the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, AUL has worked for more than 45 years toward comprehensive legal protection for human life from conception to natural death, and AUL’s attorneys have appeared before the Supreme Court and many other federal courts defending the right to life.
The role of the Supreme Court is unique in American jurisprudence. It was established, not as a designer or originator of law, but as an interpreter of law with such interpretation grounded in the source of American law – the Constitution. Though all are vested with a responsibility to understand and apply the Constitution, no other branch of American government is endowed with such authority over the application of its text. Nor does the Supreme Court hold the legislative or executive authority granted to the other branches.
Given the prescribed role of the Court, it is essential that Justices hold preeminent the governance of the Constitution over not solely the law and questions presented before it, but over the institution of the Court and over themselves – that the law prevails and personal ideology is circumscribed by jurisprudence.
Judge Kavanaugh is such a judge. His highest loyalty is to the meaning of the Constitution as it was originally written, not his own personal views of what it should mean. Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination is favored by the pro-life movement, not because we believe he will necessarily overturn Roe v. Wade – that would be results-driven judicial activism – but because his judicial philosophy is in stark contrast to the results-driven judicial activism that gave us Roe.
The hearings on Judge Kavanaugh should be thorough, yet succinct. We believe they will show Judge Kavanaugh to be a thoughtful, articulate judge with the character necessary for the Supreme Court. We urge that his nomination be approved by the Judiciary Committee and brought before the full Senate for a vote.
And after you have read this, I am urging you all, my friends and colleagues, to contact your Senators and go at this like you have never done before. Not once, not twice, but a multitude of times. Tweet them, crash Facebook, Instagram. E-mails, Phone calls – do not let up!!! #SaveSCOTUS #StopKavanaugh
1- Call your U.S. senators. Urge them to stop Trump’s nomination in its tracks. Call them at 202-224-3121.
2- Tweet and post on Facebook. We all know Trump loves to tweet. Let’s make sure he hears our resistance by using the hashtags #SaveSCOTUS and #StopKavanaugh. Same with Facebook. Let’s get #SaveSCOTUS and #StopKavanaugh trending so Trump and his advisors know just how big a mistake they’re making.
3- Find a #saveSCOTUS event near you. Dozens of organizations are coming together for a Supreme Court week of action.
4- Join the #Resist movement and watch what they suggest.
5- Help us fight back against the Trump administration. We’re fighting back to stop the efforts of Trump and his nominees to derail everything we’ve achieved.
6- Add your name and commit to fighting for nominees who uphold the Constitution, keep faith with the letter and spirit of the nation’s core laws, and support justice for all Americans.
AND while we are doing all this do not forget to show your outrage that Donald Trump’s White House REFUSES to release all the Kavanaugh Documents. Senator Dianne Feinstein has been particularly adamant in pursuing this call for the documents to the White House. Please ensure you add her name to your tweets. @SenFeinstein …
Even more recent troubling information has come to light regarding Kavanaugh’s record on affirmative action, disability rights, and presidential power. No wonder Republicans partisans are are trying to hid his records as a political operative.
Ahead of the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, many additional civil and human rights groups have joined The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights’ letter in opposition to this controversial nominee. The coalition’s opposition letter to Kavanaugh has garnered more than 180 signatories.
Since the coalition’s July 17 letter of opposition, additional troubling information has come to light regarding Kavanaugh’s record on affirmative action, disability rights, and presidential power. The updated letter highlights these threats, as well as the unprecedented process that partisans are using to hide his record as a political operative.
“The fact that President Trump is now an unindicted co-conspirator to federal crimes committed to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election calls into question the legitimacy of his nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” the groups write.
The letter can be read in its entirety here.
