Join grassroots citizens from around the nation who are urging the President to nominate justices who strictly adhere to the meaning and intent of the Constitution!
The resignation of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor signals the beginning of a monolithic battle over the next Supreme Court nomination. A key swing vote on some of our nation's most high-profile legal cases over the last 25 years, the absence of O'Connor will have liberal interest groups throwing open their war chests to defeat any of President Bush's Supreme Court nominees.
Even with the so-called filibuster compromise, Democrats in the Senate have all-but pledged to oppose any nominee that does not pass their liberal litmus test.
There could not be a more critical time for Americans who are desperate to see order restored to the court and justices who strictly adhere to the original intent of our Constitution.
To counter the aggressive push by liberal groups to nominate and confirm moderate justices, Grassfire.org is moving to rally a minimum 250,000 citizens as quickly as possible for an EMERGENCY PETITION DELIVERY to The White House!
EMERGENCY ACTION ITEM: Grassfire is calling on all members of our online team to take immediate action in helping us rally and mobilize 250,000 citizen signers of our "Judicial Vacancy" petition. With the announced retirement of Sandra Day O'Connor, it is crucial that the grassroots voice is heard in the nomination process.
Grassfire will be delivering petitions to the White House during the first week of July.
If you are concerned about the future of our nation and want to stop Judicial Tyranny in America, go here, and alert your friends.
The Petition States:
To: President Bush, U.S. Senate
Whereas, the federal courts of the United States have imposed a tyranny of the judiciary on the American people by straying from the original meaning and intent of our U.S. Constitution, and
Whereas, judges and justices have extended the jurisdiction of the courts in ways that betray the meaning and intent of the Constitution, and
Whereas, some members of the U.S. Senate have obstructed the judicial nomination process and imposed an ideological blockade on President Bush's nominees…
Therefore, I the undersigned do hereby call on the President of the United
States to nominate and the U.S. Senate to speedily confirm nominees for the lower federal courts and the U.S. Supreme Court who:
1. Uphold the original meaning and intent of the Constitution and reject the so-called "living Constitution" model that allows judges to apply their own meaning to our founding document;
2. Uphold the intended jurisdiction of the courts as outlined by the Constitution and are committed to reversing the imperial court and the doctrine of judicial supremacy on all societal matters.
3. Are men and women of upstanding moral character who adhere to the historic values of our nation.
I oppose efforts to filibuster or block all nominees who meet these criteria and call for "Up-Or-Down" votes on all of President Bush's nominees. In addition, in the event the following individuals are nominated:
I would support the nomination of Antonin Scalia as Chief Justice.
I would support the nomination of Clarence Thomas as Chief Justice.
