    Are any of us surprised at Hatch's move. He took the cowardly way out to support the nominee without having to cast a vote. If it's true he was in Utah County of all places in the world to be showing support for Hillary, Harry, Judge Shelby and bad mouthing conservative Utah voters then it/'s evidence that he still doesn't get it and knows he has nothing to loose by taking these actions. Again, it's time for Hatch and the Federal Reserve to both go!

    Here are some more things not included in this report. Sen. Hatch spoke at Utah County Republican Women in Provo on Monday. He went out of his way to praise Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Judge Shelby, and a couple of other Liberals. He gave an unofficial endorsement for Chris Christie for president in 2016. He blasted the TEA Party, FreedomWorks, Senate Conservatives group, and, indirectly, anyone else who disagrees with him, including those who dare to call him a RHINO. He claimed that all they do is split the party. I subscribe to email newsletters from some of these groups, so I know for a fact he lacks knowledge about them. Yet he complained that the GOP can't do anything while they are in the minority. Do you see the irony here? As part of the GOP Establishment, he's doing his part to reject faithful members.

    The headline is mis-leading in that it seems to suggest hatch voted against Yellen. The reality is he just didn't vote. but He supports her appointment though. But why are we even having this discussion? The House of Representatives should re-establishing their constitutional role as guardians of the treasury and completely revoke the Federal Reserve charter.

    I'm happy to see Mike Lee once again stand his ground in defending what is left of our Republic by voting against the status quo and the establishment money masters.

    Mr Hatch, you cannot serve God and Mammon
