Help fight Garland's bid for the Supreme Court

From The National Right To Work Committee:

Barack Obama is plotting to cripple the fight to protect worker freedom by installing Merrick Garland, a Big Labor approved justice on the Supreme Court.

And to make matters worse, as many as 16 Republicans may be wavering on their commitment to block Garland's nomination by agreeing to meet with Obama's nominee.

The consequences of Republicans folding on their pledge to block Garland's nomination would be disastrous.

A recent 4-4 split vote in the Friedrichs case left a lower court ruling in place upholding forced-union dues.

The California teachers fighting to be free from the clutches of union bosses and their forced dues scheme petitioned the Court to rehear their case.

Observers believe the Supreme Court could take up the case again as soon as next year.

But if Republicans wilt under Big Labor's pressure campaign, Garland is very likely to vote with the Court's four liberal justices to deliver a gut-punch to the worker freedom movement.

That's why I'm asking for your immediate help.

Your National Right to Work Committee has launched a "Stop the Obama Takeover" Banner Bomb to raise $30,000 by May 1st to blanket the states of wavering Senators with ads urging them to live up to their word and block Garland's nomination.

A 5-4 ruling in favor of forced-dues is not even the worst decision that a Big-Labor dominated Supreme Court could hand down.

Recently, liberal law professors bragged that a pro Big Labor Supreme Court majority could rule Right to Work itself as unconstitutional.

And now, one Wisconsin judge just handed the nation a peek at the future of Right to Work if Barack Obama gets his way and installs a pro-Big Labor nominee on the Supreme Court.

The judge's ruling struck down the state's Right to Work law by agreeing with Big Labor's lawyers that the state of Wisconsin cannot protect employees from union bosses who threaten to have them fired for refusing to pay dues or fees to a union they don't support.

If Barack Obama's union label nominee, Merrick Garland, is confirmed to the Supreme Court, I'm afraid his record proves he could very well cast the deciding vote to eliminate Right to Work laws across the country.

His 20 year record on the D.C. Court of Appeals reveals his Big Labor bias.

In fact, in two cases he sided against workers represented by the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation.

He even voted to gut the Supreme Court's decision in the Beck case, which allows workers to opt-out of paying the portion of their dues that funds union politics.

And AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka heaped praise upon Garland and called his pro-Big Labor credentials "impeccable."

That's why I was so disturbed by the news some Republicans might be faltering on their commitment to block Garland's nomination.

So I'm asking you to chip in a contribution to the "Stop the Obama Takeover" Banner Bomb right away.

Your generous support will help your National Right to Work Committee launch a targeted online advertising campaign in states like Arkansas, Iowa, Maine, New Hampshire and Ohio urging their senators to stand firm on their commitment to block Garland's nomination.

With the November elections around the corner, Big Labor is cranking up the pressure on Republicans in the Senate to confirm Garland.

And unless Right to Work supporters across America rise up in opposition, I'm afraid of what may happen.

The good news is, despite the union boss arm-twisting, at least one Republican responded to the grassroots uprising against Garland's nomination and reversed course on his intention to hold hearings on the Garland nomination.

I'm convinced you and I have a chance to hold the line against Garland's nomination.

But that is going to require a megaphone to compete with Big Labor.

That's why I'm asking you to chip in and support the "Stop the Obama Takeover" Banner Bomb.

Your contribution will allow your National Right to Work Committee to gin up grassroots pressure in targeted states by blanketing the Internet and social media with ads urging key Senators to hold the line against the Garland nomination.

This won't be easy -- or cheap.

That's why we have until May 1st to raise the $30,000 necessary to fund this crucial program.

So please chip in a contribution before the deadline and help your National Right to Work Committee fight back against Big Labor's court-packing scheme.

Sincerely,

Mark Mix
President, National Right to Work
