Saturday evening, Judge Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the 114th Supreme Court justice by Chief Justice John Roberts. The ceremony followed many days of outlandish theatrics, delays and character assassination of Brett Kavanaugh and his family leading up to the Senate's 50-48 confirmation vote. Afterward, President Trump remarked, "He's going to go down as a totally brilliant Supreme Court justice for many years."
This is a great day for America.
The ceremonial swearing is scheduled for tonight at the White House. Justice Kavanaugh will begin engaging cases before the Supreme Court tomorrow.
Justice Kavanaugh is right for the High Court!
Now-Justice Kavanaugh has written over 300 judicial opinions. He believes that "a judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make it." Kavanaugh has also stressed he believes in interpreting statutes and the Constitution as they are written, "informed by history and tradition and precedent."
Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation process has been the most divisive and mean-spirited in American history. The Senate Democrats and resistance organizations have shown that they are willing to destroy a person and the institution. They want a judicial activist who will rule the way they want rather than the way in which the Constitution requires.
+ + THANK YOU!
My extreme gratitude goes out to every friend of Liberty Counsel Action who signed our "Confirm Judge Kavanaugh" petition and those of you who took the additional action step of faxing members of the U.S. Senate during this historic confirmation process. We delivered tens of thousands of your faxes to Senate members calling on them to confirm Judge Kavanaugh. We believe that your activism truly made a difference!
And, an additional thank you to our prayer teams who prayed for Judge Kavanaugh, his family, the Senate, for Dr. Ford and her family, and our nation.
Of all the battles we have engaged, this could be the most important because for too long, anti-faith and anti-family groups have used the Supreme Court to impose their agenda on our nation.
Thank you so much for all you are doing to support faith, family, life and liberty in our country, and God bless you!
