Daily Action Outline for the Week of April 10th – April 14th

Garee's Random Image Error : No image found! (please check your category)

This week, Senate Democrats are waging an unprecedented war against Judge Neil Gorsuch – not because they think he’s unqualified or oppose his record – but because they are still upset they lost at the ballot box in November. Will the Democrats, in unprecedented fashion, filibuster the nomination of Judge Gorsuch or are they using this to try to gain concessions on future Supreme Court nominees? Either way, we need to tell them to stop playing games with the Supreme Court. Our calls to action this week will help us combat the Democrats’ war on Judge Gorsuch and thank those who are breaking with their party’s antics to support Judge Gorsuch’s nomination.

Monday April 3rd

  • Note that the Senate Judiciary Committee has voted to move Judge Gorsuch’s nomination to the full Senate. A vote is expected on Friday!
  • Send an email to each Democrat Senator on our target list. Next to each of their names below is the message we want to each Senator. Keep your emails brief – they can just be a sentence or two – and focus on the message we’ve listed below for each.

Hey there friends and family! This week I want to talk to you about Judge Neil Gorsuch and the Democrats’ pledge to filibuster his nomination to the Supreme Court. What you need to know is that their opposition to Gorsuch is purely political. It has nothing to do with Judge Gorsuch’s qualifications or background. They are filibustering his nomination because they want control over future Supreme Court nominations from President Trump. So instead of doing it the right way by winning elections, getting a mandate from the American people, they want to use intimidation and threats to get their way. The Democrats are abusing the filibuster – not to stop an unqualified nominee – but to be in control of Supreme Court nominees, even though the American people didn’t want them in charge of this decision! If we had, we would have given them the Senate majority and elected Hillary. But we didn’t do that! We elected Trump and we support Gorsuch! How can you help to make sure Neil Gorsuch gets a fair, up or down vote, and the filibuster gets squashed? Go to the Tea Party Patriots action page [http://tpp.us/actionmarch3] where you can find information you need to contact a targeted list of Democrats, with specific messages for each one. Do it today! And please copy and paste this post onto your own wall! Don’t just share it, that will limit who can see it. Copy and paste it all! Thank you!

Wednesday, April 5th

Call each of the Democrats on our target list. This is the same list we emailed on Monday. Remember, we have a specific message for each Senator. Four Democrat senators have committed to not participating in the filibuster. Please call these senators and thank them. The rest on the list are currently planning to participate in the filibuster. There’s still time for them to do the right thing, so call them and tell them to stop playing games with the Supreme Court and confirm Judge Gorsuch without delay.
