Help us pressure the Senate to vote NO on Brett Kavanaugh

If you watched the Sept. 27th hearing you saw two different people - one a proud and courageous woman speaking the truth and the other a lying, unapologetic shameless man hell-bent on reaching the highest court in the land for a lifetime appointment.

Christine Blasey Ford was asked what she remembered the most about Brett Kavanaugh's attempt to rape her. 

Her response: His laughter, his uproarious laughter.

Folks, we need to stop this Supreme Court nomination at all costs. Judge Kavanaugh is in no way fit to serve on any court in America.

Contact the Senate: Send a letter here.

And then please donate so we can keep our digital ads running.

Manchin and Collins both now say they are YES votes for Kavanaugh, but we will keep our ads running to pressure them before the vote, as well as those running in close re-election fights, like Sen. Heller in Nevada.

Outside of Kavanaugh's disgusting history of sexual abuse, there are a litany of other reasons to oppose him.

For starters, we filed complaints against Kavanuagh for committing perjury regarding his use of stolen emails and for covering up sexual abuse. Read about it in Buzzfeed here.

Kavanaugh is a veteran of every conservative cause you can imagine, from the 2000 Florida recount to the fight against Obamacare.

But perhaps most concerning about Kavanaugh is that he has suggested enhancing the president’s power to block criminal and civil actions against him, a potentially worrisome position when the president nominating him is under a treason investigation and facing multiple lawsuits.

Get the facts: 

  • Kavanaugh will shield Trump from prosecution: In 2009, he argued that the president should be exempted from both criminal prosecution and civil suits while in office, arguing that the latter should be delayed until he leaves the presidency. Expect Democrats during the hearings to focus heavily on his apparent view that no one but Congress should be able to hold Trump criminally accountable as long as he remains in office.

  • Kavanaugh will overturn Roe vs. Wade: We also cannot risk a Supreme Court that would put in jeopardy the privacy rights of all Americans and a woman's right to control her own body. Reproductive rights in this country are at risk. Despite overwhelming opposition from the American people, many believe there is a very strong chance Brett Kavanaugh would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. We cannot allow that to happen.

  • Kavanaugh will allow Trump to destroy the ACA: Anyone who cares about the Affordable Care Act should also fear this choice. Kavanaugh once suggested in the Obamacare case Seven-Sky v. Holder that a future president could choose to nullify Obamacare by just not enforcing it, writing, “Under the Constitution, the President may decline to enforce a statute that regulates private individuals when the President deems the statute unconstitutional, even if a court has held or would hold the statute constitutional.”

  • Kavanaugh is terrible on civil liberties: Kavanaugh has also ruled in favor of the National Security Agency’s expansive call record surveillance operation, arguing that collecting these records did not constitute a “search,” and that even if it did, the government can take such records if it has a “special need” to prevent terrorism, even if this burdens the constitutional rights of those searched. 

  • Kavanaqugh is not on the side of consumers: He recently wrote that he thinks the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutional on separation of powers grounds.

The more we learn about Kavanaugh, the more we realize the massive importance of defeating this nomination.
