It was very exciting to be invited to participate in a conference call with the White House last evening, just minutes after the President announced his nomination of Judge Britt Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

 

It was even more exciting to be invited to participate in a conference call with Vice-President Mike Pence this morning.  These were live calls, not recorded messages - I have so much respect for the Vice-President, even more so now after hearing him speak personally and candidly about Judge Kavanaugh's nomination.

 

What a great day for the Second Amendment and our Constitution. 

 

Let's flood the phones of our U.S. State Senators, urging confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh.

 

U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth

Washington, D.C.
524 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510
Phone: (202) 224-2854

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin

711 Hart Senate Building
Washington, D.C. 20510
p: 202.224.2152

 

(Yes, I know, but flooding their phones will be fun, it will drive them crazy!)

Dude.  That is absolutely AWESOME!

 

I'm sure Tammy and Dick can't wait to hear from all of us.

Just called Durban and trolled them a little. He approves of the Resist movement (shocking)

Wow, how cool.  I'm excited for Kavanaugh.  Hopefully A. Barrett as well when RBG is finished.

 

And, what was discussed?  Strategy moving forward?

 

Indeed, can you share anything that was discussed?

Do we have any specifics about why Kavanaugh is being supported by the SAF? I called both senators, but I'd like a little more meat to my comments in case Duckworth calls back (Durbin's office didn't even take my phone number).

Whenever one calls, they should lead off with the line that they are too a supporter of the 'resist' movement.  The movement to 'resist the obstruction of government business by the Democrats.'

 

Loved hearing that IC was invited and participated in the calls.  Well done!

Made the call to Duckworth and Durban’s offices. Why do I get the feeling they have been told to take the calls but not to bother the Senators with it?

Durbin’s Rep seemed happy to answer that he supported “resist”, until I called him a communist

I would have just called him un-American, as it is in American to 'resist' just because.  I would also remind him he is alienating a LARGE part of the population by doing so. .

It doesn’t matter. Durbin would never side with us on anything. Same as Duckworth. They only care about pandering to their base, not reaching across the aisle and representing the entire state

That is true. The left of center folks who usually would vote D are being pushed away because the party is going so far left

Yep, and I don't think Durbin and others like him have started to grasp that yet.  Hopefully he will wait until too late, and he is looking at his Republican replacement (Hey I can dream).

The lefts largest fault is that they cant admit they made a mistake. Its always someone elses fault. Its how theyre wired to think. Durbin will never grasp that concept, and if he ever loses, it will be because the Russians hacked the IL election.

I am on  firearms forums from other states like Maryland, and they even complain about Durbin.

My call to Senator Durbin's office resulted in a case of frostbitten left ear for me.

After asking that Senator Durbin vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh, I added that we are requesting that that Senator stop saying that the Judge said that the president could not be prosecuted- that that is fake, a fake story.

Got that phone call over with in a hurry!

I got it from another forum, not a Maryland one. We have allies everywhere that dislike Durbin and Duckworth just as much as we do
