Rick Scarborough Archives 5/24/2005

So what ever happened to the Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional Restoration? Was it another one of the nutbag extreme religious rights' non profit set ups to solicit dollars online.

Many of these same nonprofit type temporarily set up organizaitons or groups are now missing in action, or the domains are "for sale" on the web, or they are linked directly to one of the websites of Rev. Rick Scarborough, James Dobson, Janet Folgers, Alan Keyes,etc. For example, type in into your browser. Or try and see where that takes you.

Why so much apparent deception as far as exactly who or what these guys are doing? Maybe it is a PR type effort to throw out stupid Press Releases like this below and build your name recognition? Or maybe it is to solicit dollars online and not report the revenue? Rev. Rick Scarborough's is no expert on government, or our Constitution, obviously. Had his views been prevalent a hundred years ago we women would probalby not be able to vote, African Americans would still be owned, Interacial marriages would be forbidden, and on and on and on. Stupid people. Scary shit.

Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional Restoration Chairman Scarborough Deplores Senate Sell-Out on Judicial Nominations

WASHINGTON, May 24 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional Restoration Chairman Rick Scarborough today deplored the so-called compromise which preserves the un- Constitutional, un-democratic filibuster of conservative judicial nominees."

Said Scarborough, "This 'compromise' amounts to a complete capitulation by the 7 moderate Republicans who signed on."

"It allows votes on three nominees, while preserving the permanent filibuster on others," Scarborough declared. "The Senators who struck this bargain have only postponed the day of reckoning, which surely will come when the President seeks to fill anticipated vacancies on the Supreme Court."

Scarborough said the 7 Republican sell-outs are implicitly condoning the left's tactic of using a filibuster to permanently block an up-or-down vote on nominees who fail to meet its standard.

"By a permanent filibuster - which this supposed compromise maintains 'under extraordinary circumstances' - Democrats are still free to indefinitely block any discussion of or vote on conservative candidates for the federal bench," Scarborough charged. "Thus, a minority of Senators will be allowed to continue to derail the democratic process and thwart the will of the American people."

Said Scarborough: "Harry Reid didn't win the last presidential election. Nor did Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Lindsey Graham or John Warner. When the American people voted for this president they said they wanted him to fill vacancies on the federal bench with qualified candidates."

Scarborough noted, "Historically, the role of the Senate has been to debate nominees, then vote on them - not to indefinitely block a discussion and a vote by use of this illegal device. A minority of liberal Senators have given themselves an un- constitutional veto over the president's candidates for the federal judiciary. Incredibly, 7 Republicans are willing to go along with this."

"The left is shouting for joy and dancing with glee," Scarborough charged. "Senate Minority leader Reid called it a 'significant victory,' while the leader of the National Abortion Rights Action League expressed satisfaction that the filibuster has been 'preserved for upcoming Supreme Court nominations.' And this John McCain and company call a compromise?"

Scarborough urged voters to call their Senators and express their outrage "over this betrayal of democracy, decency and fairness." He pledged that the Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional Restoration will 're-double our efforts to eliminate the permanent filibuster - now and in the future."

A story in the May 23 issue of Time Magazine profiling Scarborough and other Christian activists, acknowledged his leadership role in the fight to confirm conservative judicial nominees. In April, the Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional Restoration conducted the widely publicized CONFRONTING THE JUDICIAL WAR ON FAITH Conference in Washington, D.C.
