Most U.S. Senators elected as conservatives start out great and then become part of the Washington swamp network. McCain, Hatch and Toomey being prime examples. Sen. Helms was one of the few who got better with age and Sen. Hawley looks like he might become such an exception as well.
Select someone who can’t be BLACKMAILED like Roberts is!
Sound thinking. God bless him.
Definitely throwing some shade at the President’s two picks. And dropping bombs on Bush 2’s pick, that f*cking fraud. But, I wonder if his views conflict with some of the folks on the President’s short list, especially someone like Barrett and a few of the other women. Not that being woman is the only reason to pick any of them, but it is what it is. Can’t have an all male SCOTUS, not happening in this day and age.
GOP and the powerful, conservative Federalist Societys tendency to focus on justices who have established records of conservative and libertarian business and government rulings, but no firmly established record of rulings that protect either marriage or the lives of the unborn.
Hawley is right, IMHO. If you’re on the record as being against that decision, then your Conservative Card is more or less punched.
Some of the other stuff is a no-brainer. I say that with the caveat that Roberts is and will continue to be a complete disaster, for as long as he is there. And he’ll only get worse. He’ll go further than Kennedy, who voted out of compassion as his time came to an end, and be worse as he’ll do it on spite for all those that loathe him. A list that continues to grow. Hopefully, if the President gets to replace RBG, and maybe another Lib on the court, Roberts will take his leave knowing that he won’t matter anymore. One can hope.
Absolutely. He is a big disapointment
I’m all for Hawley’s idea, but a candidate that has that in his/her record will be subjected to a hearing that would make the Kavanaugh hearing look like the trial of a Cub Scout accused of being late for a meeting. Unfortunately that is what we are up against. Good luck with getting that person confirmed and then living to take the seat on the bench. Only an Act of God can get such a person confirmed. We will just have to pray that the Almighty will intervene.

Why can’t we find out what Roberts is being blackmailed for and then make it public?
Make him relinquish his USSC position.
Only gun owners who truly respect the second amendment. That is sole criteria I care about.
Word is that Hawley is positioning for a Whitehouse run in 2024. So far I like what I see but he caved on renaming the military bases.
I believe that Senator Hawley clerked for John Roberts. That having been said, I think that Hawley and Cruz are the senators that I respect the most as far as identifying the best SCOTUS nominees.
I am becoming more and more impressed with Sen. Hawley.
I’m being less and less impressed with Sen. Hawley. He’s running his mouth like a typical swamp Senator. He needs put the rubber on the road and insist his party engage instead of tweeting up a storm. Frankly, he reminds of Ben Sasse. Another new star who faded badly.
Litmus tests exist for a reason.
I’ve used litmus paper many times.
Pardon the pun but Hawley is preaching to the choir. I’ve no time for these U. S. Senator who strut about and run their mouths like this the Senate is a debate club. Hawley is a member of the majority party in the Senate. Yet he seems to spend most of his time tweeting to no effect. We should expect more than that.
I guess you are like me: sick and tired of people running their mouths without concrete, decisive action
Make sure they cant be blackmailed.
I posted my first impression of Hawley back in December, after watching him during impeachment.
Mr Hawley is building quite a résumé for higher office. Yale Law, President of Yale Chapter Federalist Society, Lawyer (apparently specializing in defending religious liberties), Clerked for Chief Justice of SCOTUS, Professor of law, State Attorney General, Senator, young, tall, handsome, married to a pretty blond Lawyer/Professor of Law and has 2 kids. He has a disarming demeanor that reminds me just a little bit of Reagan, while his understated wit cuts without offending, just like Reagan. Is he the real deal? He certainly bears watching.
This action get's him some attention, and support in the pro-life movement, but could hurt him with other constituencies. Still, nice to see he has the courage to stand up for his beliefs.
And dropping bombs on Bush 2s pick, that f*cking fraud.
Both Josh and his wife Erin Hawley clerked for Chief Justice Roberts. In fact, that is how they met. If this slight was aimed at Roberts, as many interpret, it's both brutal and personal.
Have either of Trump's selections ever said Roe was OK? What makes him think any future one will?
And should Biden win then the chance of Hawley ever voting to confirm them hovers somewhere between zero and none. Josh is grandstanding again.
You are an idiot
