Lisa Hazelton, San Clemente

As a long time San Clemente resident and a native Californian; I am a lover of liberty and believe in the words of Abraham Lincoln, “Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.”

Deciding the next Supreme Court justice is not something our Senators should take lightly. It’s imperative that this role is filled by an individual who is qualified, unbiased, upholds the Constitution, and honors the separation of powers by letting Congress legislate.

President Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be the next associate justice of the Supreme Court, and Judge Kavanaugh is clearly an excellent pick who is prepared to serve.

Kavanaugh’s more than 300 written opinions on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit as a federal judge demonstrate an exemplary record of being an articulate and thoughtful jurist who can build consensus. At home, he is a devoted father and husband who serves his church and community.

As citizens, we should urge U.S. Senators to quit playing politics and consider Brett Kavanaugh based on his merits. The Senate should act swiftly to confirm Kavanuagh to the Supreme Court.

  • Democrat Senators will never consider Brett Kavanaugh based on his merits and they will and are playing politics.

    Leftist Democrats have long relied on those courts that pay little attention to the U.S. Constitution because their far left ideas would never pass muster by the electorate. They will ask for all the documentation on Kavanaugh that exists in the world but not because this information will be used to inform them. No, Democrats have already made up their minds and made that clear when they spoke against ANY Supreme Court Candidate Trump might nominate PRIOR to him even announcing Kavanaugh.

    Democrat Senators represent and acknowledge they are part of the resistance, a resistance that has demonstrated they care less about laws, procedure, or even America’s well being than they do about fighting against Trump. They are no patriots.

  • Seriously? Kavanaugh is not political? He served as counsel for Bush in the White House. Not exactly a pristine judicial career!

    I am always amazed by people who convince themselves that their political choice is not political, and must be a pure soul, compared to all the scoundrels put up by the opposition.

    Let’s be honest here. The Republicans will put up a candidate for the Court who reflects their values. The Democrats will put up a liberal thinking candidate. Neither party will put up someone truly independent and a pure jurist.

    • I’m always amazed when democrats pretend they support and follow the constitution. Ruth Badger Ginsburg is on record saying that our constitution is a dated document that needs to be revised! Before President Trump nominated Kavanaugh he had stellar support from the democrats! Now of course they hate him and they will do everything in their power to RESIST! That’s what democrats do now, resist everything President Trump supports. Ginsburg also recently said she plans on staying around at least another 5 years to thwart President Trump from nominating a replacement for her. Does anyone believe she is unbiased? Just asking?
