American Family Association: Enough Delay—It’s Time to Confirm Kavanaugh
TUPELO, Miss.—With a key vote in the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation possible today, the American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net) says Democrats aren’t the only ones contributing to the political circus swarming around the judge’s nomination.
The U.S. Senate consists of 51 Republicans and 49 members who vote with Democrats, but not all Republicans are in support of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
“As many as seven GOP senators are non-committal in their support for Judge Kavanaugh,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon. “If only a few of these Senate Republicans cave to Democratic liberals in their attempt to derail the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh, merely on the basis of unfounded allegations, then liberals will use this same method to destroy future conservative judicial nominees.
“For example,” Wildmon continued, “liberals will immediately use this same slimy tactic to destroy the significant number of President Donald Trump’s district and appellate court judges yet to be confirmed. If the only judges a GOP-controlled Senate can confirm are the ones approved by radical liberals like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.), then the judiciary will be stacked with rogue judges.”
AFA is calling on its 1 million friends and supporters to contact these seven potential hold-outs and strongly urge them not to cave to radical leftist political pressure and vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court: Susan Collins (R-Maine); Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), and Lisa Murkowski (R-Ark.). Other news reports indicate some senators, including Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), are issuing a wait-and-see approach to Kavanaugh following the hearing.
“What’s at risk?” Wildmon asked. “Liberals desperately want absolute control of the courts to continue their full-throttled attack to destroy America. Liberals, for example, want to use the courts to create open borders, to force towns to be sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants and to allow boys who think they are girls into public school restrooms designated for girls only.
“What are the consequences?” he continued. “If the Republicans named above are swayed to vote against Judge Kavanaugh because of liberal intimidation and unsubstantiated allegations, then every conservative judicial nominee will likely be subject to the same type of attacks. Also, Republicans who cave under this pressure from liberals will in effect create a lame duck administration under President Trump. Surely this is not what they desire, but if they do, it will be an unintended consequence.”
