If you've missed previous opportunities to call your Senators and tell them to reject the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to our Supreme Court, then you can still use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or the bottom of this page, if you're on a cellphone) to find your Senators' phone numbers. Note well that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), after signaling some skepticism about the Kavanaugh nomination, now says he'll support the nomination, which, given Mr. Paul's history, is very, very far from a surprise. And, as Gene Healy at The American Conservative says, "the further he got from his service in Ken Starr’s office, the more Kavanaugh wanted the president cloaked in special immunities from civil suit and criminal investigation." His supporters would perhaps call that "maturity," but I'd call it "discarding your values because they inconvenience you," which should be a cardinal sin in America.
Meanwhile, as many Americans have observed, our Administration's Justice Department is all "tough on crime" and "law and order" and "zero tolerance" when it comes to violent crime and undocumented immigrants -- but not when it comes to corporate crimes like pollution, discrimination, and financial predation. Just about every regulatory agency does less law enforcement than it did even under the center-right President Barack Obama, and EPA finds, in particular, have dropped an eye-popping 94 percent during this Administration's first year. Why, the Comptroller of the Currency says the banks are his agency's "customers"! When will the American people become our government's "customers," I wonder? Public Citizen helps you tell our President and our Justice Department to stop looking at corporations as "partners" and start enforcing the laws that would restrain them from harming our country. Leadership: it's not actually that hard.
