HS Tucker said"We seem to have a different understanding of what
a witness is. When two more more people each individually make a separate
accusation, that doesn't satisfy the law of witnesses. It's two or
more witnesses to the same event."So help me understand why you
don't apply this same standard to Bill Clinton and his accusers? I
don't believe a single one of them has a second witness to corroborate what
they said and yet the Republicans paraded them out right before the election.
No double standard there.
In my opinion:Orrin Hatchs retirement is a huge victory to all of
The hatred of Democrats were on full display during the Judge Kavnaugh
confirmation. Only one Democrat voted for Bret Kavnaugh, a constitutional
scholar with 30 years of experience on the bench.
I don't need Hatch to talk down to me on his idea of a victory for the
nation. I know what constitutes a victory for the country and I recognize a sham
when I see one paraded in the public square.
@frac"This seems more like a "you can't just replace all your
old people with tactical retirements the last year... but if someone dies then
we'll consider choices" stance."But was perfectly ok
for Obama to stack the Circuit Courts with extremely liberal justices that
would not even pass the "60" vote standard? During the GW
Bush administration, it was the first time in history there was a full scale
attempt by the democrats to prevent a POTUS from picking any court nominees.Classic obstruction of justice by the Democrats! You got to always be
in control, by any means necessary. Looks the the Repubs woke up and
are using rule #4, they must be using the same rule book.
@fight4libertySchumer's line was "We should not confirm any Bush
nominee to the Supreme Court, except in extraordinary circumstances"This seems more like a "you can't just replace all your old
people with tactical retirements the last year... but if someone dies then
we'll consider choices" stance.
I believe Ford 100%, & because you & your GOP cohorts (including your
president) refused to allow an FBI investigation into Ford's allegations
*before* the hearing, or other relevant witnesses to testify, & prevented a
thorough & *real* invest. after it (What *real* investigatiodoesn't
even interview the claimant & defendant?) Kavanaugh will *always* have a
cloud hanging over himself & his decisions. His "apology" last week
meant nothing to me. Like GOP justification for their behavior, it is the
personification of 1 Cor 13:1-- "as sounding brass & tinkling
cymbals" & I would add from Shakespeare, "signifying
nothing".Kavanaugh was not exonerated like you, Trump & the
GOP claim. Quite the opposite. Because you were all afraid to allow a full
investigation into these allegations, he will *never* be exonerated, & we
will have to rely on our impressions of both of them during the hearing--which I
have to say, appears for the majority of Americans, to be leaning heavily
towards Ford. Thanks for giving us a man of such unimpeachable
quality to now pass judgement on America. I certainly expect him to elevate the
Supreme Court and deliver unbiased, fair & honest decisions.
"Trump has 19 valid accusations of sexual misconduct lodged against him. I
think those could be considered witnesses right? Multiple?"We
seem to have a different understanding of what a witness is. When two more more
people each individually make a separate accusation, that doesn't satisfy
the law of witnesses. It's two or more witnesses to the same event.I invite the reader to decide whose view is compatible with the
scriptures and the underpinnings of western civilization.
Please, Orrin, don't insult us any more. There are too many loose ends
with Kavanaugh that should have been resolved. And you, Orrin, are a major
player in the wrong inflicted on our democracy by the Merrick Garland travesty.
Your legacy, Orrin, is hyper-partisanship and putting the interests of a few
above the whole. A self-righteous tone won't erase the damage you, yes,
you, Orrin, have done to the country. I have known you personally for many
years. We have had a very friendly, cordial association. However, I will be
glad to see you gone from office. Give my best to Elaine.
Senator Hatch, I needed to hear Ford's other assailant testify! Why
didn't you allow it?
silo - Sandy, UTPlease do cite even a single occasion where this
'parliamentary maneuver' was previously used by Democrats to refuse
confirmation hearings of any kind on a Republican President's nominee.We'll wait.Please do cite any occasions at all where a
Republican President (since 1991 when Biden gave his speech) nominated a Supreme
Court Justice in a Presidential election year. We'll wait.
Huskster, a little bit of hypocrisy here. Using scripture and culture to say
that two witnesses are needed? Trump has 19 valid accusations of
sexual misconduct lodged against him. I think those could be considered
witnesses right? Multiple? Stormy Daniels revealed openly herself
as one of those "witnesses". Yet the Republicans and Trump supporters
brush off those multiple accusations. That hypocrisy at it's finest.Honest people can see the hypocrisy. Hatch dismissed women everywhere
and that was one of the most heart wrenching things we have seen. Have Hatch
tell us outright that Dr. Ford lied. Have Lee tell us that too. Right to her
face. I'd like to see that reaction! Huskster, maybe you can
tell us why for almost a year there were no similar acccusations about Garland?
Of course the Republicans were digging up everythng they could, but didn't
find anything. Then Kavenaugh comes along and multiple law schools including
Yale his own alma mater decried his nomination. Why?
@silo Republicans refused to confirm Obamas choice of Merrick
Garland to replace Scalia, siting the 2007 promise by Senator Chuck Schummer
that the senate would not confirm a supreme court pick in Pres Bushs final
year.The Democrats invented the obstructist tactics used in
nominating lower court and Supreme court picks. However the dems forget that
they will not always be in power so sometimes their antics come back to bite
them.Is it any wonder why the Democrats are desparate to never lose
their power. They continually change the rules to always be in their favor,
never wanting the Republicans to use the same benefit.
@silo - Sandy, UT"Please do cite even a single occasion where this
'parliamentary maneuver' was previously used by Democrats to refuse
confirmation hearings of any kind on a Republican President's nominee.
We'll wait."How about Judge Borke? Dems 1st
mistake was to fillibuster Pres Bushs appellate court nominees starting in 2001
with Miguel Estrada, 1st in history to be successfully fillibustered. Dems went
on to fillibuster 9 other circuit court nominees . "The first time there
was a full scale attempt to prevent a POTUS from picking court nominees.The dems 2nd mistake was the " nuclear option" to pack the
federal courts with liberal judges after they took control of the Senate. They
then filled vacancies with liberal left wing judges that would not meet the
"60" vote standard, especially in the DC circuit court.When
republicans started fillibustering some of Obamas picks, the democrats broke
precedent and eliminated the the fillibuster in all nominations except for the
Supreme Court picks. Obama flipped most circuit courts from conservative to
liberal judges.Dems third mistake was to fillibuster Gorsuch which
allowed the Repubs to use the nuclear option.
Thank you Senator Hatch for an outstanding editorial and for your courageous and
effective defense of Justice Kavanaugh.I only wish the Deseret News
would have had the inclination and spirit to defend him as well as you have. Was
kinda surprised by that. You have told the truth, and defended an
unjustly accused man.
"Both the reputation of a good man and the character of the Senate were
tarnished by the rank cynicism that was on full display over the course of this
confirmation battle. For nakedly partisan purposes, I disagreeI find Dr. Ford's story very credible because what appears to be
blatant honesty at the expense of hurting her credibility. Let me explain.If the story is contrived and a conspiracy why would she identify two
attackers instead of one, knowing they would both deny it, Why would she not
have vetted the other friends, she identified as attending the party,This was about a woman telling her story. It is clear to me if she wanted to
make it more believable she could have done so easily.
Regardless of political party, this individuals confirmation as a supreme court
justice is a celebration of justice. Allegations without evidence or proof are
meaningless. It is an act of marxism to convict a man with no
evidence whatsoever. The USA is still a free country, although some in this
country are fighting to change that.
Americans are losing confidence in their institutions and this latest act of
installing a very partisan judge to the Supreme Court is just doing more damage
and dividing the country further.
@1covey"He was the victim of a parliamentary maneuver that was
originated by Democrats."Please do cite even a single occasion
where this 'parliamentary maneuver' was previously used by Democrats

"I hope that next week, my fellow senators and I can move on and start
working together again — but I worry we won’t."Senator Hatch, For 20 days the sane part of the country was taken
hostage by the insane part of the country. We have watched in horror as the
democrats, with a fervent media as their stage, have engaged in demagoguery,
rumor mongering, tautological reasoning, social contagion, mob-mentality,
hysterics and other methods reminiscent of a witch trial. In shock we watched
the personification of Joseph McCarthy as the Judiciary Committee democrats told
the Kavanaugh to prolong his own torture by asking for an FBI investigation to
prove his innocence! At the end of any hostage situation, there is
tremendous relief that over. But now we need to be certain that the hostage
takers don't try it again. The democrats need to pay a price for this. The
American public can hit them at the ballot box, but you have a unique
opportunity to get to the bottom of this without worrying about politics. There
must be investigations. Don't let this go, or they will try it again. You
have built a life time of political capital, use it in these last three months
to expose the perps.
I hate today's Republican party but I can't identify with the
Democrats either, partly because of their 3rd world slime ball tactics, some of
which were learned from the Republicans.If I were the Democrat
leadership, I'd hire some good private investigators to find corroborating
information for Ms Ford's account.Someday the truth will come
out (either she lied or it was true) and one side is going to look very bad.
Right now it's the Democrats. In the future it could be the likes of Hatch
and Trump. I hope it's the latter but I'm not holding my breath.
@ TDay Do you realize that while Mr. Kavanaugh was accused of committing crimes,
Ms. Ford was only criticized - not condemned- for not presenting corroboration
for her accusation; even her long-time good friend refused to corroborate.
Senator Grassly and other GOP Senators treated Ms. Ford with great courtesy;
harsh remarks were only directed at Democratic Senators who were bent on
discarding basic legal rights. Ms. Ford was offered the courtesy of a nonpublic
meeting in her home area to respect her privacy and claim of fear of air travel.
She said her lawyers never told her. Since her lawyers were paid by Democrats,
it's obvious that Ms. Ford was not their primary client in this affair.
I keep hearing Merrick Garland's name. Why ? He was not
smeared and slandered nor intimidated by protesters, some paid. He was the
victim of a parliamentary maneuver that was originated by Democrats.
America loses when we let drunken frat boys play the he said, she said, and
refuse to allow any other witnesses to speak.After Kavanaughs
performance, lies and outright arrogance, he's a terrible fit.But what this has taught many, many women is don't speak up, because we
won't believe you.2-4% of sexual assault victims lie about the
facts, 1 in 5 women are sexually abused. We have a president who
bragged about abusing women, some underage in dressing rooms even, but the GOP
cares not. Women are not to be believed, and then they should be
made fun of as our president did for a good laugh at them. OR if they dare to
ask a question, Hatch can tell them to "Grow up" in a condescending
"Unless you are a liberal man like Clinton then its all good" and that
great lion of the senate, Ted Kennedy.Not only have they become
gender based discriminatory, (men) but include ageist, (old) and racist,
(white). Is their a class for emotional discrimination, (angry)? Must be they
think Kavanaugh should be disbarred because he was angry about false
accusations. Like a poster said, democrats just have to
discriminate, always have, always will.
After watching the Democrats exploit women (including Dr. Ford) to satisfy their
partisan agenda, I can fully understand why so many women on various news
channels and talk shows are expressing dismay over the manipulation of the women
and the smear tactics the left engaged in. I can fully appreciate
why we see so many women at Trump rallies holding up signs that say “Women
for Trump”Now if you were to believe the Democrats smear
campaign to destroy the reputation and character of Justice Kavanaugh and his
family, one must ask why four new women accepted jobs to be Justice
Kavanaugh’s new Supreme Court clerks?Finally, yes there are a
lot of “#metoo” women and other liberal women who say they will vote
for the Democrats in November. Well that’s fine, but I can tell you a LOT
of men who are fed up with this anti-man campaign being foisted upon us by the
left will also be out there to vote for the GOP!
Thank you Senator Hatch for your well written and appropriate praise and defense
of the character of this outstanding man and Jurist (Justice Kavanaugh).Where are we headed as a country when elected Senators engage in
dastardly tactics unworthy of and beneath their position as elected
representatives of the people?As a citizen, I was shocked to listen
to Senators like Kamala Harris and Kory Booker attempt to destroy the character
and reputation of a distinguished Federal Judge using uncorroborated and vile
accusations by women who played into their disengenuous hands! Some of the
women accusers are of questionable reput and it was a deep dive into the swamp
to even allow these last minute shenannigans to derail Justice Kavanaghs
nomination. We the people will rember these low endeavors and vote
for the republican ticket. No votes for Ben McAdams, a good man in a bad party.
@JaneB "Well, one thing is now quite clear. The GOP is not the party
for women"Interesting passive/aggression: but it could be also
stated the opposite - democrats are now the party that hates men - actively
supports unsubstantiated accusations against men, presumes all men guilty and
not provable to be innocent and Dems have no morals regarding mounting smear
campaigns to destroy any man not compliant to their extremist intolerant dogma -
Unless you are a liberal man like Clinton then its all goodIs it any
wonder most women reject the feminist label?
HutteriteI saw the tape in question with Hatch shunning an obnoxious
paid protestor. I would have done the same thing.Said poster is
retorting Hatch only because they disagree with the confirmation, its clear as
day.Marxist"To make up my mind regarding ford's
claim, I needed to hear mark judge testify before the committee. You didn't
allow this so I believe ford."You are aware that Mark Judge
already submitted in writing a sworn statement denying knowledge of ford's
accusation? For Judge to testify before the commitee he would only need to read
his sworn statement in front of them, for if he changed his story at all he
would have purgered himself, a felony. Now why would anyone do that to
themselves? Mark Judge didn't need to testify, because he already did.
Another misguided attempt to argue against false accusations.EternallyImpermanent"...kavanaughs violation of rule
1.2..."Clarence Thomas did the same in his defense of false
accusations against him, besides if justice ginsbergs constant drunkeness and
passing out in public is a standard for a supreme court justice, then I'd
say kavanaugh is well within his rights.
Senator Hatch, this wasn’t a victory for anyone. America lost. Any illusions of decorum from the Senate swept away. Any thought of the
independence of the Justice gone. Sexual assault victims revictimized. Civility deserved by both Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Blasey Ford’s families
unrealized. Advice & Consent isn’t a capstone, rubber
stamp, or partisan plot, it’s a sacred Constitutional check on Executive
authority. The Constitution continues to crumble in the hands of winner take
Well, one thing is now quite clear. The GOP is not the party for women, (or
minorities or immigrants.) Why would any woman be in the GOP? They are moving
away in droves. Only 25% of women now identify with Republicans. Gee, I wonder
why?!McConnell, Grassley, Collins, etc were the leaders of nothing
more than a naked power grab. They never cared about getting to the bottom of
the allegations, and they never cared about the truth. They announced what they
were going to do long before even the testimony on that thurs. They didn't
allow a proper investigation. Now, they are back to the "mistaken
identity" nonsense. What rubbish. I'm sure Ed Whelin is a happy
man.So, I guess it's a good thing we have all learned over the
last couple years what the GOP is really all about. They don't believe they
need women, minorities, or immigrants. But the math says different.
His condescending, dismissive wave of the hand and snippy comment to "grow
up" told us everything we need to know about Orrin Hatch.
A great victory for the Republican Party. A great disservice to the court and
the country. Hatch has long since forgotten about the good of the country. He
should grow up.
When they write the history of how America fell apart, Orrin Hatch will play a
starring role for his major contribution to the politicization of the judiciary
branch, by refusing to allow Merrick Garland to go to a vote and then so
partisanly moving Kavanaugh's confirmation forward with such divisive
rhetoric. There are Democrats who are responsible too (Cory Booker's stance
was inflammatory and unjustified, for example), but Hatch is up there with the
Even the Republicans and Fox News anchors found Ford to be credible when she
gave her testimony. Then Kavanaugh and Graham started ranting and they
remembered that they could just ignore her.
I can't help but notice that when Orrin Hatch joined the Senate, it was a
respectable institution and that the longer he has stayed in power, the more
contentious and disrespectable it has become.The Democrats'
scorched-earth approach to this confirmation hearing was based on the
Republicans' successful scorched-earth approach to the entire Obama
presidency. When Republicans refuse to even grant a vote to Obama's
moderate nominee, win the presidency through the electoral college when the
majority of Americans voted for his opponent, and then implement their policies
and nominate their justices as if they had a voter mandate, it's hard to
argue that their dishonest and cynical tactics don't work. That being the
case, I have sympathy for the Democrats decision to lower themselves to the
level of the Republicans.
"I am still waiting for republicans to apologize to Hillary Clinton for
demanding to lock her up with out a trial."You may be waiting
for an apology for something that never happened. Conservatives
believe (bolstered by the IG report) that the FBI's investigation of her
crimes was botched. We all saw Director James Comey lay out her crimes in some
detail before the American public before disingenuously proclaiming that she
would not be referred for prosecution. Conservatives believe she should be tried
by an impartial trier of fact, and that after a fair trial, the verdict would be
"Lock Her Up!"I'm not sure what Republicans believe,
but the idea that conservatives are opposed to the rule of law is preposterous.
Mr. Hatch said that the integrity, ethically and morally challenged current
republican WH occupant was the greatest POTUS ever.Mr. Hatch now
says that the Bret Kavanaugh* confirmation is a victory for the courts and the
nation.Bret Kavanaugh* will be forever remembered as an unelected
republican lawyer whose confirmation was rammed down the throats of
Americans.Bret Kavanaugh* will be forever remembered as an unelected
republican lawyer who prejudged all Americans who are not republicans.Bret Kavanaugh's* nomination will be forever remembered as a stain on the
Put your fact straight Hatch. It's a victory for the GOP. Don't try to
use the country as a pawn here. It is about loyalty to party and not to country.
They can't give a legitimate argument they can only mock, jeer, insult and
tell you your horrible that you didn't support an uncorroborated testimony
witch hunt that would in spirit kill the 6th amendment based on someones gender
without any evidence. Thank you leftists for exposing that you are still the
party you were in the 1850s & 1950s (you just switched the target groups)
and all your talk of equality and justice is just a sham for your totalitarian
ends justify the means. Why did I support Kavanaugh? 1. Because Mothers
looked at their sons and other good men they know and don't want them to
live in a society that justifies new stereotypical blanket injustices and
discrimination because of individual past injustices. especially when there is
no corroborative evidence. That is IF you believe in EQUALITY.2. I as a
father look at my daughters and don't want them to become dependent victims
to a social political ideology that seeks to abusively use them as political
pawns or be called gender traitors because they dare choose different from the
post modernist agenda because they prioritize family over career or recognize
different societal roles between the sexes.
@ shaun, I will apologize for demanding Hillary be locked up. Sorry I
didn't demand she be locked up without a trial. I just hoped for a trial
to prove or disprove the allegations. But now lets have the trial
Comey (FBI) said she had committed the crimes, there is evidence she committed a
crime, and Loreta was not going to prosecute. But she is still free
and untried. Because of the presumption of innocence until proven guilty,
beyond a reasonable doubt she is free to walk the land. Now can democrats allow
the same with Kavanaugh?
So funny. Democrats told us there was now presumption of innocence, it was a
job interview. Mark Judge testified in a letter. Marx demands a trial before
he drops the allegation. Got it Marx you didn't approve to give him the
job. But he got given the job. Now dems want to impeach. Big
problem, they have to go to court and against the preponderance of innocence,
prove beyond reasonable doubt, prove an allegation. They have not done it yet.
Ford says she will not participate any further, (because if she provides any
facts that can be disproved she could be charged with lying to the committee.
Also, the statute of limitations for the alleged institution has run, Maryland
will not prosecute thus no crime for impeachment. Swetnick won't testify
because as part of her testimony she said she participated as an adult in
parties (10) where criminal actions took place and she says she was aware of.
That makes her a felon. Believe all you want, but facts are facts, they are not
trumped by ATDS.
@hstuckerI am still waiting for republicans to apologize to Hillary
Clinton for demanding to lock her up with out a trial.I guess your
only innocent until proven guilty if your a republican.
Would have been nice to add how much harm the Democrats did to Dr Ford.
Against her specific direction and wishes, they chose to use her and the ME Too
Movement as a "weapon" of personal destruction for pure political
purposes. This hypocritical action should not be forgotten but
should be pointed out every time the Dems accuse the Republicans of waging a
"war against women".
"You cant possibly take just one persons accusation and claim it as fact
without evidence."I didn't. However, the fact remains that
hatch did, with a condescending wave and comment about 'growing up',
dismiss women who wanted to talk to him. It was a boorish and insensitive thing
to do, trump style, regardless of anything to do with Kavanaugh. It's
there, on tape. Anyway, have a good day.
To make up my mind regarding Ford's claims, I needed to hear Mark Judge
testify before the committee. You didn't allow this so I believe ford.
" "This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated
political hit, fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the
2016 election.... Revenge on behalf of the Clintons and millions of dollars in
money from outside left-wing opposition groups ... what goes around comes
around"It does seem true. With Kavanaughs participation in the
Ken Star investigation as a background, one could easily see the irony of this
whole thing. It seems Kavanaugh didn't like it when what he did in the
90's came back in turn and was done to him.I'm not
convinced this was a "clinton" hit on Kavanaugh, but based on
Kavanaugh's actions as a member of the Star investigations, its easy to see
why Clinton supports would have found him objectionable. But lets
be honest here.... this was not a win for the Supreme Court. There were plenty
of qualified conservative judges that would have not brought the baggage
Kavanaugh did to the court. It's not a win for the Republicans, because
unfortunately their true views on women's issues came in to clear focus -
with Hatch's comment - "Grow Up". And it was a loss for the
democrats for their leaking of this letter - just wrong.
Do standards matter?Will Orrin Hatch or Mike Lee speak to whether
Brett Kavanaugh's Sept. 27th statement to the U.S. Senate Judiciary
Committee -- in which he alleged "This whole two-week effort has been a
calculated and orchestrated political hit, fueled with apparent pent-up anger
about President Trump and the 2016 election.... Revenge on behalf of the
Clintons and millions of dollars in money from outside left-wing opposition
groups ... what goes around comes around" -- violates Rule 1.2 of the Model
Code of Judicial Conduct? Utah and Kavanaugh's Maryland have
equivalents to this judicial canon, which says that "A judge shall act *at
all times* in a manner that promotes public confidence in the independence,
integrity, and *impartiality* of the judiciary, and shall avoid impropriety and
the appearance of impropriety." Lisa Murkowski, the U.S. senator
from Alaska, cited Kavanaugh's violation of Rule 1.2 in opposing his
elevation to the U.S. Supreme Court.Or are rules for chumps, as when
Republicans cynically tell us a new law is "constitutional," knowing
that the U.S. Constitution is an illusory protection against a majority of their
This was a terrible moment in our history. Democrat senators purposefully waited
until the last minute to allow this to leak out to the press. Both Ford and
Kavanaugh were simply pawns to them. Collateral damage. They didn't care
about the #MeToo movement, sexual assault, or protecting anonymity. The only
thing on their mind was abortion. Several of them even admitted it. Shame on
them, and the media that tried to destroy a good person for political gain.The rest of us should hold our politicians to a higher standard. This
kind of behavior is unacceptable. Facts and witnesses matter when determining
guilt, or even credibility.
His clone is right their with him, Wilson is needed, change is needed...
@worf"Their behavior is to intimidate, mock, ridicule , and build
wealth by creating enormous debts and deficits."You do realize
that the only two modern Presidents to oversee a reduced deficit were both
Democrats, right?And you do realize that Trump's tax cut paired
with spending increases spiked the deficit and will balloon the debt, right?
HutteriteImpartial"With a dismissive wave and a
condescending sneer, you let the women of america know how you really
feel""Hatch is out of touch with his constituency and most
of humanity"One thing is clear, Hatch and most of the
republicans in the senate committee agree that they believe something happened
to mrs ford, but it is a material fact that she provided no evidence and no
witness to corroborate her story. The committee gave extra time with a 7th FBI
background check humoring the democrats and still there is no evidence.You cant possibly take just one persons accusation and claim it as fact
without evidence.The democrats stoopted to new lows by disregarding
mrs ford's request to remain anonymous, and purposesly waited until the
final hour to leak the accusation to the press and used it as a weapon to smear,
defame and delay the confirmation.Hatch is clearly in touch with his
constituency, anyone with a clear mind knows baseless accusations are infact -
Baseless! Said posters have clearly given in to the sophism and
nihilistic tacticts, Alinsky style, of the extreme left. If ford had presented
proven evidence kavanaugh would not be a scotus today.
I have never been a big fan of Sen. Hatch, but I must give credit when he stands
up for what is morally and ethically right, and legally required, and
Constitutional. Thanks Sen. Hatch! The world is watching, and they saw
American Democracy almost succumb to shrieking mob rule.
We have witnessed the character of the Democratic party:* Creator
of contention by condemning a man with no evidence or witnesses.* Mocking
and ridiculing those who don't follow in their philosophy.*
Constantly causing divisions of unfairness between different groups of
people.* Little to no announced vision or expectations for America.
Except to open borders, raise taxes, and control healthcare.* Their
behavior is to intimidate, mock, ridicule , and build wealth by creating
enormous debts and deficits. Create a crisis, condemn
(through media), than gain power by presenting a conceived cure---Nancy Pelosi
calling it a wrap around.
Just stop orrin. You can't even remember your own hypocrisy. You are the
best argument for term limits in government. You used your title for nothing
more than to enrich yourself and everyone knows it. Please retire.
Just go back to Pennsylvania, or wherever it is you actually live, and know that
Utah will get better representation soon.
A fitting and honorable capstone of Senator Hatch's long and distinguished
career. Well done.
Senator Hatch, thank you for your courage to stand for what's right. It is
incredible that in the 21st century, simple fundamental principles of
civilization and fairness need to be defended, but that illustrates the
"depths of political depravity" (as you called it) to which the left is
willing to descend. The adversary would overturn our scriptural and
cultural standards requiring two or more witnesses to establish an accusation.
We have been warned by a prophet that the "assaults of the adversary are
increasing exponentially in intensity and variety." We have just barely
defeated an attack on civilization. The adversary is far from done.Senator, particularly since it is unthinkable for Mitt Romney to summon the
courage to take a stand against evil if it may be controversial, we will miss
Orrin Hatch what a class act. Served Utah well.Time to put this Judge
Kavanaugh thing to bed and move on to the next crisis.
So we have another Georgetown Prep, Ivy league SC justice. The good old boy
network is alive an well in DC. Is it any surprise that public opinion of
Congress and the Supreme Court itself is at an all time low?
No. Kavanaugh's confirmation was a foregone victory for the grumpy old men
wing of the GOP, a demonstration of the only use they have for trump. With a dismissive wave and condescending sneer, you let the women of America
know how you really feel Orrin. I hope they return the favour come election day.
Orrin Hatch is out of touch with his constituency and most of humanity.
