We feel this is very important for the Country.
Senators' deceptions threaten Court nominee
This is from the Desk Of Mat Staver, Chairman, of Liberty Counsel.
Senate Democrats have launched an intense campaign to demonize Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch by labeling him as being a misogynist, a man who places the rights of big business over individuals, excessively pro-Wall Street, and an extremist.
In spite of all of the threats and hurtful labels, Judge Gorsuch is on a whirlwind schedule this week to meet with a dozen Democrat Senators, including Diane Feinstein, who is the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Feinstein, along with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, will likely spearhead the Democrats' efforts to stop the nomination.
Ironically, this week Judge Gorsuch will be meeting with some of the same senators who helped unanimously confirm him to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in July 2006.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell believes he knows the answer. In an op-ed published by Politico, Sen. McConnell wrote,
"Turns out, much of the opposition we're seeing from far left groups and Democratic senators isn't really about Judge Gorsuch at all. It's about President Donald Trump.
Even before the president announced Gorsuch as his nominee, we read headlines like, 'Democrats Launch Scorched-Earth Strategy Against Trump.' We heard the Democratic leader promise to fight whoever he nominated to the court 'tooth-and-nail.' Now some of Senator Schumer's colleagues are attempting to paint this nominee as an 'extremist' and are calling for a filibuster before the ink is even dry on his nomination."
Contrary the the Democrats' propaganda, Judge Neil Gorsuch will help reestablish the rule of law in our nation, help restore the integrity of the Supreme Court, and help honor the legacy of Antonin Scalia in his rulings.
Now is the time to return this country to the rule of law through which judges interpret the original meaning of the Constitution and the laws before them.
Liberty Counsel's "Save Our Courts, Save Our Nation" campaign includes a citizen petition drive in support of Judge Gorsuch's confirmation. As you likely know, this is going to be an intense confirmation battle and we need as many signatures as possible for maximum impact. Using Liberty Counsel's Rapid Sign technology, one click here and your name will be automatically and immediately added to the petition.
It's about politics, not Judge Gorsuch's record!
As noted by Majority Leader McConnell, one Democrat senator "lauded Judge Gorsuch for his 'sense of fairness and impartiality that is a keystone of being a judge.' In the words of President Obama's law school mentor, "He's a 'brilliant, terrific guy who would do the Court's work with distinction.'"
We would like to deliver our first wave of petitions to the Senate as soon as we have 50,000 signatures with an ultimate goal of 100,000+ petition signatures, but we are less than halfway to our first goal.
Join us by clicking here to have your name immediately and automatically included in this petition.
From the Supreme Court to the state and municipal courts, the role of judges is to judge fairly. Judge Neil Gorsuch has epitomized that judicial philosophy throughout his career. He is self-identified as a constitutional textualist, and precisely what the Supreme Court needs now with Justice Scalia gone.
The petitions will be delivered to key members of the Senate ahead of critical moments of the confirmation process.

God bless you. And God bless America.
