Action Items This Week

FOR THE WEEK OF 10/19/20

The two major themes this week are continuing to push for a swift confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett – the timeline is short, it must be done before the election – and working to re-elect President Trump.

Also, here’s what we know about the process now that the hearings have ended. From the Senate Judiciary: “Last Thursday morning the Committee also held its first markup for Judge Barrett during which time it held over her nomination and set a time certain to vote to report her out of Committee: 1:00 pm on October 22, 2020. Unsurprisingly the Democrats played procedural games at the outset of the markup, attempting to deny the Committee a quorum with which to transact business just like Sen. Schumer promised. For a variety of reasons, they failed. The vote will be taken next Thursday at which point Judge Barrett will be reported to the Floor.”

We’ve also heard that it is likely that the final floor vote will not actually occur until October 26th.

SUPREME COURT ACTION

**PRIORITY #1** Call your Senators About the Supreme Court

We must keep calling, both Republicans and Democrats, as we know Democrats will do whatever they can to delay, delay, delay. And, Oct. 26th – the likely floor vote day – is only four days before Election Day.

Amplify Messaging

We all need to help to dispute and refute the false notion that the entire nation’s health care is going to disappear if Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed. Here is a good article about this issue: No, Confirming Judge Barrett Won’t Cause Millions to Lose Health Care.

We also need to help amplify the fact that the Democrats want to eliminate the filibuster and increase the court size so that Americans understand everything is about power for the left, and that this is what they intend to do if given the chance.

Make Real Civics Education a Priority Again – Week of October 19th

Keep an eye out every week for a new activity or book or lesson to bring real civics back to our children.

This week, we are listening (or you can read the transcript) to a conversation between Hugh Hewitt, Hillsdale College’s President Dr. Larry Arnn, Professor Wilfred McClay from Hillsdale, and Hilldsale’s Director of Online Learning Kyle Murnen. It’s called, “The Great American Story – Part I.”

With the election approaching fast, and one side claiming that America is evil, we thought it appropriate to listen to a discussion about the Great American Story, and the hopeful, incredible country and story America has provided to so many millions of people throughout its history.

You can listen to it on a car ride, or at home together as a family, and discuss the history that is brought up, and why America is the Land of Hope.
