The Senate Judiciary Committee has begun to hold hearings on our President's Supreme Court nominee, D.C. Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and you can use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or the bottom of this page, if you're viewing it on a cellphone) to call your Senators and tell them to reject Mr. Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. You need not go on a lengthy rant (that'll keep other good citizens off the phones, anyway): you need only mention that Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated, through his writings and his decisions, that he would empower the Executive branch far beyond what the Founders wanted. Our Founders, sick of George III as they were, wanted a relatively weak President, not a President with so much power that he can make wars all by himself and shield himself from prosecution for his wrongdoings. A Justice Kavanaugh would make our President -- this President! -- that powerful.
Meanwhile, Congress wouldn't vote last month to curb our involvement in the Saudi coalition's war on Yemen -- this, even after an airstrike aiming at a summer camp bus purportedly harboring Houthi rebels killed 40 children and 11 adults. Naturally, that airstrike used an American-made weapon -- in case you thought we limited our culpability in this catastrophe to logistics! -- and the Saudi/UAE coalition later stated that that taking out the bus in a populated area was a mistake, meaning they would have preferred to kill all those summer school kids in a more open area. If we'd had all this out in Congress, as the Constitution demands, we'd have far less of this crap on our conscience -- and far fewer foreign entanglements that turn bad ideas into "matters of national security." So Amnesty International helps you tell your Congressfolk to stop giving weapons to Saudi Arabia and the UAE so they can kill defenseless Yemeni.
