Today’s Action: #SaveSCOTUS

Trump is expected to pick his Supreme Court Justice nomination to replace retiring Justice Kennedy as early as today, and his list is about as bad as you’d expect: many of them Bush-appointed judges and all of them extreme right-wingers with hostile views on progressive values.

Justice Kennedy was a conservative who occasionally provided a swing vote in the favor of liberal causes. If one of those judges replaces him, we face a 5-4 majority in the favor of Trump’s hateful agenda, the effect of which could be felt on generations of Americans. Abortion rights, marriage equality, healthcare, voting rights, and immigration are all under major threat as well as any number of new challenges we have yet to face.

We do not have the power to stop Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) from holding the vote in the Senate — but we DO have the power to vote down extremists nominees if Democrats stay united AND we gain a few Republicans.

The good folks of Indivisible are calling for a week of action July 9-13 at Senate district offices nationwide to #SaveSCOTUS. Find the event nearest you or organize your own! Tell your Senators to vote down every. single. nominee. until we take back the Senate in November.

Republicans have a 51-49 Senate majority. Until Obama’s final year, a 60-vote majority was required to confirm a Supreme Court Justice. But McConnell made history with unprecedented obstruction, first refusing to allow a vote on Obama’s nominee and then changing the confirmation requirement to a simple majority so that he could jam through Trump’s choices.

So now? We must fight fire with fire, demanding our Senators oppose anyone on Trump’s list of possible nominees until after the midterms — when we take back the Senate and force Trump to give us a more reasonable nominee.

We need a crowd outside of every Senate district office in the nation July 9-13, demanding a united front against Trump’s nominees. Check out Indivisible’s calendar of events or organize your own. Can’t attend in person? Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition stopping Trump from taking citizenship away from naturalized Americans, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
