The U.S. Senate will vote tomorrow on the confirmation of Loretta Lynch, President Obama's nominee for Attorney General.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has decided to give the Democrats what they want rather than blocking this extreme and unqualified nominee.
Also, because of Senator McConnell's unwillingness to reverse the decision by Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) to eliminate the filibuster on nominations, the Democrats only need four Republicans to vote with them to confirm Loretta Lynch.
Republicans should reject the Lynch nomination.
In her confirmation hearings, Lynch could not identify any limits on the president's executive power and said she believes executive amnesty is legal and constitutional.
However, that is not the only reason that we need to try and stop her confirmation:
Former representative, presidential candidate and former U.S. Air Force flight surgeon, Dr. Ron Paul (R-Texas) has given some dire warnings about Ms. Lynch. Dr. Paul is concerned that Ms. Lynch will aggressively increase what is called “civil asset forfeiture,” an Orwellian term more properly described as civil asset “theft.” It’s where the government seizes cash, vehicles and other private property from individuals merely suspected of wrongdoing, without evidence, formal charges or specific crime.
Writing at Dr. Paul’s website, John Tate, Campaign for Liberty president and good friend of Dr. Paul’s, said Ms. Lynch’s confirmation must be stopped at all costs. Ms. Lynch should be nationally known as the “queen” of civil asset “theft,” wrote Tate. He points out that as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Ms. Lynch’s office seized nearly a billion dollars’ worth of private property under the guise of civil asset forfeiture just in 2013. The Internal Revenue Service is used as the federal goon enforcers to confiscate property and assets.
“There is no doubt Ms. Lynch will continue her asset theft policies once she becomes AG,” wrote Tate.
In a Senate hearing, Ms. Lynch boldly declared this method a “useful” and “wonderful tool.” As the Homeland Security definition of a terrorist has now been expanded to include all those who praise the Founding Fathers, or criticize the U.S. dollar, millions of Americans could be targets for asset theft.
It also seems certain that Ms. Lynch plans to continue Holder’s practice of unilaterally expanding the authority of the Executive Branch and federal power.
In recent Senate hearings, Ms. Lynch was asked by Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) about her views on the constitutionality of the National Security Agency’s warrant-less wiretapping program. Without hesitating, Ms. Lynch called the program “constitutional and effective.”
She has refused to state whether or not the president has the power to use drone strikes to kill American citizens on U.S. soil.
Ms. Lynch also supports Obama’s use of executive orders to overturn the will of Congress and write new laws as only he sees fit.
Four Republican senators have already publicly declared their support for Ms. Lynch. If all Democrats vote along party lines, Ms. Lynch will get 50 votes, requiring Joe Biden as the vice president to cast the deciding vote.
The only difference between Loretta Lynch and Eric Holder is that Lynch has told everyone that she will ignore the law BEFORE her confirmation vote.
Voting to confirm Lynch now would be a clear violation of a senator's oath to support and defend the Constitution.
Please call these Republicans and urge them to oppose the nomination of Loretta Lynch for Attorney General.
Unfortunately, these five Republican Senators have said they intend to vote for Lynch's nomination.
1. Susan Collins (R-ME) – (202) 224-2523
2. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) – (202) 224-4521
3. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) – (202) 224-5972
4. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) – (202) 224-5251
5. Mark Kirk (R-IL) – (202) 224-2854

Also, please don't be fooled when Senator McConnell votes against the nomination. If he truly opposed Lynch, he would have either blocked her nomination from reaching the floor, gotten 51 Republicans to oppose her, or reversed Harry Reid's "nuclear option" so the nomination could be filibustered with 41 votes.
Call Senator McConnell, his phone number is (202) 224-2541. Ask him why he isn't working to "crush" liberal nominations like he works to "crush" conservative Senate candidates.
For additional information and videos related to this issue and to hear Loretta Lynch in her own words I refer you to the Morning Tea sent out this past Monday.
The principal duties of the Attorney General are to:
• Represent the United States in legal matters.
• Supervise and direct the administration and operation of the offices, boards, divisions, and bureaus that comprise the Department.
• Furnish advice and opinions, formal and informal, on legal matters to the President and the Cabinet and to the heads of the executive departments and agencies of the government, as provided by law.
• Make recommendations to the President concerning appointments to federal judicial positions and to positions within the Department, including U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals.
• Represent or supervise the representation of the United States Government in the Supreme Court of the United States and all other courts, foreign and domestic, in which the United States is a party or has an interest as may be deemed appropriate.
• Perform or supervise the performance of other duties required by statute or Executive Order.
Thank you for your attention to this issue.
God Bless You and God Bless OUR America.
