Congratulations! You did it! By taking a stand, you helped counter one of the most dispicable and destructive political attack campaigns in our nation's history.
When the final Senate votes were counted on Saturday, I hope you stood a bit taller. I hope you found hope in the fact that we CAN counter the deluge that is coming from the radical Left and their partners in the media... and that your voice matters!
Grassfire team members were among the most active and engaged of all conservative networks in the Kavanaugh battle. We estimate that our team members made over 200,000 citizen contacts in the form of petitions, faxes and phone calls to members of Congress on the Kavanaugh nomination! You also used the tools of social media to reach countless thousands more. So take a bow!

As expected, the Soros-funded activist groups are only increasing their efforts, despite their defeat in the Kavanaugh battle. For example, in a sad demonstration of where we are right now, activists were literally clawing at the doors to the Supreme Court and shouting "shut it down" in protest of Kavanaugh's confirmation.
This morning the SEnate will hold the key cloture vote which initiates the 30-hour countdown to a final floor vote.
Yesteday, Kavanaugh offered his final defense in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, saying, "I revere the Constitution. I believe that an independent and impartial judiciary is essential to our constitutional republic."
He then wrote extensively on his demeanor during the show trial...Read more
Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley released the following statement regarding the FBI supplemental investigation:
Grassley: With FBI Work Complete, It’s Time to Vote
With the FBI set to finalize its seventh probe of Judge Kavanaugh, the Radical Left, Big Money activist groups are pulling out all the stops to defeat the nomination.
Yesterday, the ACLU announced a new $1 MILLION ad buy attacking Kavanaugh and comparing him to Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby and other discredited sexual predators. The ACLU is targeting key swing Senators who will decide whether Kavanaugh is confirmed or rejected THIS WEEK. (Watch the ad here.)
Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has launched an equally despicable anti-Kavanaugh ad, along with a massive grassroots effort to defeat the nomination.

William McGurn, writing in the Wall Street Journal, struck to the core of the opposition against Judge Kavanaugh. This is really about Roe v. Wade and abortion.
As malignant as were the campaigns against Supreme Court nominees Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas, even they didn’t face accusations as vile and unrelenting as the unsubstantiated charges against Brett Kavanaugh. Adding to the injustice is that the frenzy surrounding his nomination isn’t really about him.
It’s about Roe v. Wade. The 1973 Supreme Court decision upended the laws of all 50 states on behalf of a constitutional right to abortion the Constitution somehow neglects to mention.Read more
Rachel Mitchell, the prosecutor who was hired by the Judiciary Committee to head up questioning surrounding Dr. Ford's allegations, wrote a memo to the Committee stating that there is not enough evidence in this accusation to bring a legal case. She concluded:
I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee. Nor do I believe that this evidence is sufficient to satisfy the preponderance-of-the-evidence standard.

*A Brief History Of Democrats Calls For Delay*
A Timeline of Senate Democrats’ Varying Calls For Delay Of Senate Consideration Of Judge Kavanaugh’s Nomination To The Supreme Court
SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH McCONNELL (R-KY): “The Democrats had already made up their minds and chosen their tactics: delay, obstruct, and resist. Whatever it took -- whatever the truth really was -- they were going to do whatever they could to stop this qualified, experienced, and mainstream nominee.” (Sen. McConnell, Remarks, 9/24/2018)

More than 120 "resistance" protestors were arrested yesterday on Capitol Hill as the anti-Kavanaugh protests reached new lows of bullying and thuggery.
Clad in black and with fists raised, the protestors shouted anti-Kavanaugh slogans while clogging up Senate office buildings. ABC News says Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Women's March and others had organized the protests.
These protestors are literally filling the halls of Senate office buildings. And the protests aren't confined to Capitol Hill. You may have seen that Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife were confronted at a D.C.-area restaurant by a group of anti-Kavanaugh radicals. Sen. Cruz and his wife were forced to leave the restaurant while protestors cheered.
