Bitter battles and uncivil disruptions waged by Democrats have marred the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. Verified reports show that Democrat leaders orchestrated the disruptions ahead of the hearings.
On a bright note, as of this morning, friends of Liberty Counsel Action have barraged the Halls of Congress with over 10,000 faxed messages. Thank you! We know that our team's engagement makes a difference!
Today is the final day of committee hearings. If you haven't already, please join us in voicing a loud and prolonged pro-Kavanaugh message. Click here to send an immediate message to Capitol Hill in support of Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. See my update below — Mat.
Fox News, Politico and other sources are reporting that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and other Democrat leaders planned the "civil disobedience" disruptions over the Labor Day weekend prior to the start of the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
From the opening statement by the chairman through today, the final day of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, Senate Democrats have engaged in and encouraged civil disobedience. Over 140 protestors have been arrested so far.
Eyewitness accounts have also confirmed that people are being paid $50 to disrupt the Senate hearings. They are being provided with free breakfast, lunch, and bail money upon their arrest. One such protestor who painted fake blood on her body was removed from the hearing yesterday. Inside the hearing room, protestors can be heard encouraging each other to disrupt the hearing.

But all this coordinated distuption is still not enough for the radical groups. A letter signed by a number of radical organizations sent to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer complained that the Democrats are not being disruptive enough and should totally shut down the process.
It is sad to see the open insurgence of Democratic elected leaders, radical organizations, and individuals that openly disregard the law and engage is shameful and disrespectful behavior. The disrespect and disruption of this confirmation process is unprecedented, uncivil, and mean-spirited.
The Left's vilification of Judge Kavanaugh and their disruptive tactics should be evidence enough that he is the kind of judge we need on the bench!
One click here and you'll have everything you need to send a pre-written or self-composed message to selected members of the Senate.
Thank you to all of you who have taken action over the past several days and to those who will engage today!
God bless you,
Mat Staver, Chairman

P.S. Today, the committee hearings take a different tact. Witnesses on both sides of the Kavanaugh nomination will testify before the committee. If Judge Kavanaugh is approved by the committee, the nomination will proceed to the full Senate for a vote.
