According to Joe Biden, no Supreme Court confirmation hearings should be held during a presidential election season. Tell the Senate: No hearings at www.tpa.us/86
Hello, this is Charles Benninghoff and I am the founder of Pray For US, Pray For The United States and also the Tea Party Army®.
Barack Obama is twisting arms behind the scenes to try to force Senate Republicans to accept his nominee to the Supreme Court, even though Obama has not publicly named any nominee yet.
That is the subject of today’s campaign and why we are calling on all patriotic Christians and concerned Americans to speak out and tell the Republicans to resist the pressure from Obama and the media.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away on February 13th which left a vacancy on the Supreme Court.
Scalia was the last remaining originalist on the Supreme Court, meaning he always tried to determine the intent of the Founding Fathers when they wrote our Constitution prior to deciding a case.
Obama was reportedly thrilled that Scalia died and has already been cracking jokes about his death. Replacing Scalia means that Obama now has the chance to tilt the court 5-to-4 in favor of the far left when every case is decided.
Some Republicans have argued that a Supreme Court vacancy should not be filled this year. Their belief is that the seat should remain vacant until after the election, giving the American people the chance to vote on a President to choose the next Supreme Court Justice.
You would think that the sky is falling to hear some of the rhetoric from the Democrats on this today.
They are arguing that the GOP Senators are obstructionists and racists and are metaphorically cutting their own throats if they refuse to hold a vote on the nominee.
But do the Democrats really believe this?
Here is a clip of Senator Joe Biden from 1992. Biden was the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee at the time, and he gave a passionate speech on the Senate floor on this very same issue, even though there was no vacancy on the Supreme Court at the time.
Obama’s own Vice President, Joe Biden, argued as chairman of the Judiciary Committee that it would be unfair to the nominee to hold confirmation hearings during a presidential election year.
He also argued that the Senate would be in deep trouble as an institution if they were to hold confirmation hearings at that time!
So we plan to hold the Senate to the high standards that former Judiciary Committee Chairman Joe Biden proposed, and demand that no confirmation hearings be held for Obama’s Supreme Court nominee.
After all, to quote Biden, it would be “unfair to the nominee!”
Folks, you need to understand that Senate Republicans are under tremendous pressure from Barack Obama and the media right now.
The way for US to fight back against this is by putting counter-pressure on the Senate.
The only thing that most politicians fear is losing their power, so what we do is put pressure on them by sending FaxGrams directly to their offices, letting them know that if they choose to hold hearings or vote in favor of Obama’s nominee, they will not have your support or your vote when they are up for reelection.
We see the standard for appointing a judge to decide cases, and also the standard for electing civil servants such as Representatives and Senators, in Exodus Chapter 18, verses 21 and 22.
It tells us that they need to be capable, God-fearing and truthful, and there is an admonishment to “Let them judge the people at all times.”
Obama has had two previous opportunities to fill seats on the Supreme Court and he has failed to meet those standards both times.
Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan are both anti-Second Amendment, pro-abortion socialists. They meet none of the standards for being a judge, according to the Bible.
Based on Obama’s own track record, we know that he will not nominate someone who is fit to sit on the Supreme Court.
Here is what you can do to help.
On our campaign page, you will find a form to send FaxGrams to the Senate and I urge you to do so today. You can contact the Senate Judiciary Committee, every Republican Senator or the entire U.S. Senate.
Also, if you are able, we appreciate any donations over and above the cost of sending your FaxGrams, because that helps us to get the Gospel out to our elected officials and let them know that we hold them to a higher standard, the standards set forth by Jesus and enshrined in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
If you are on our campaign page, use the form to the right to send your FaxGrams right now.
If you are watching this on YouTube or another channel, look for the link to our campaign page beneath this video.
Contact the Senate today and tell them that you expect them to uphold Joe Biden’s standard when it comes to confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court during an election year!
This is Charles Benninghoff signing off and wishing you Godspeed!
