ALG - Senate Reminder: Sunstein Supported Filibuster to Block Judicial Nominees 

Cass Sunstein was one of the legal experts invited to a conclave of Senate Democrats in late April, 2001. The purpose of the gathering was to develop a "unified party strategy to combat the White House on judicial nominees." At the meeting, Sunstein, Lawrence Tribe and a "lobbyist urged the senators to oppose even nominees with strong credentials and no embarrassing flaws, simply because the White House was trying to push the courts in a conservative direction."

NRN 500: Stop Cass Sunstein 

Fellow Bloggers,

 

We have a newly emerging critical issue that I believe we can really sink our teeth into. In fact, it's an issue that if we do a full-court press, we may well be able to take the lead in determining the outcome.

 

As soon as the Senate returns from recess, Harry Reid has announced he intends to try to invoke cloture and ram through the nomination of Cass Sunstein as "Regulatory Czar." In that position, Sunstein would have ironclad control of every regulation the federal government inflicts on the American people. And, quite frankly, Sunstein is a Big Government regulatory control freak. Which is why at least one Republican senator has put a hold on the Sunstein nomination.

 

The letter (linked here) makes the case clearly as to why the American people have to keep Sunstein out of the driver's seat. Just to give you one example: Sunstein has repeatedly stated that he thinks farm animals should have equal protection rights with human beings. And he has proposed giving lawyers the right to represent cows, pigs, and chickens in a court of law!

 

Please read over the attached letter -- and then use your very impressive influence to help your many readers understand the importance of keeping Sunstein as far away from federal regulations as is humanly possible. It is urgent that we act now. The Senate will reconvene next week.

 

For Liberty,

A Lesson from Across the Pond
The United States has a lot to learn from other debt-burdened countries who have too many of their citizens on government payrolls.

 

Kennedy Passing will not Pass ObamaCare
The spectacle of using Senator Kennedy's passing to generate support for socialized medicine will unfortunately overshadow the celebration of Senator Kennedy's life. And it will not work.

Frank Guinta Health Care Forum August 31!

“I believe we need quality health care coverage that is affordable, portable and accessible. What we don’t need is a massive health care takeover that, like the tax code, is confusing, massive, and unintelligible.” Frank Guinta

 

First District Congressional Candidate Frank Guinta has announced a “Real Health Care Town Hall” Forum to be held at the Exeter Town Hall at 6:00pm on Monday, August 31.

 

Sign up now to reserve your seat at this important event by clicking this link.

 

Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, after intense public scrutiny, finally gave in to the citizens of New Hampshire and has reluctantly agreed to hold two limited seating controlled Town Halls for citizens to discuss the Health Care take over program proposed in Washington.

 

Ironically, however, she chose to let people discuss their concerns about government control and bureaucracy at the home of the least trusted bureaucracy in the country--the Internal Revenue Service Offices in Portsmouth. Since our current Congresswoman refuses to hold an open forum to meet face-to-face with the people of New Hampshire, please take this is a tremendous opportunity to have your voices heard on this crucial topic!

 

You can also offer financial support to Guinta for Congress by clicking this link.

If you can’t make the forum, but still want your voice to be heard, please fill out Frank Guinta’s Health Care Petition by clicking this link.

Friends of Ayotte - MAJORITY OF REPUBLICAN STATE SENATORS ENDORSE AYOTTE

Announces she has the endorsements of a majority of Republicans in the State Senate

 

(Manchester, NH)- Former Attorney General, Kelly Ayotte announced today that she has received the endorsements of six Republican State Senators. Ayotte also has the support of Councilor Ray Wieczorek.

 

“I am honored to have the support of leaders from across our state,” said Kelly Ayotte. “I have worked with them to keep our state safe, and look forward to working with them to ensure that we bring some fiscal sanity to Washington. I made the tough decisions as Attorney General, and I will make the tough decisions to protect the future of our children.”

 

The State Senators endorsing Ayotte are Sharon Carson, John Barnes Jr., John Gallus, Bob Letourneau, Bob Odell, and Sheila Roberge. The six senators are a majority of the ten Republicans in the State Senate.

 

“I have known Kelly for many years. She is the type of person who rolls up her sleeves and gets things done. Our state needs leaders who are willing to make difficult decisions to get results, and that’s the type of leadership Kelly would provide for New Hampshire in the United States Senate,” said Senator John Barnes. “Any time I’ve had a constituent who was in need, she was there to help.”

 

Kelly Ayotte served as New Hampshire’s Attorney General for five years. As the state’s top law enforcement officer New Hampshire was the safest state in the nation each of the last two years. Ayotte lives in Nashua with her husband Joe, and her twenty two month old son and four year old daughter
